THINX Underwear:

OH SHIT YOU GUYS THIS COMPANY IS MAKING UNDERWEAR THAT IS STAIN RESISTANT, ANTIMICROBIAL, AND WILL ABSORB UP TO 6 TEASPOONS OF LIQUID BUT STILL LOOKS FUCKING SEXY

AND DID I MENTION THIS PART:

For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.

AND WHY IS THAT SUCH A BIG DEAL? HERE’S WHY:

After doing some research, Agrawal says she found that more than 100 million girls in the developing world were missing a week of school because of their periods, and using things such as leaves, old rags, or plastic bags in the place of sanitary pads.

THE SIZES RUN FROM XS TO XXL AND THE PRICES ARE NOT INSANE, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN THOSE 5 FOR $10 SALES AT TARGET BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO THROW THEM OUT BECAUSE YOU MISCALCULATED YOUR FLOW AND BLED ALL OVER THEM BEFORE YOU COULD GET TO A BATHROOM

I’M SORRY FOR SHOUTING I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS

LIKE HOLY FUCKBASKET IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME

(do people actually calculate their flow to avoid ruining underwear?)

but really, this is very cool.

Wow! Dnt take your pads or tampons for granted!!

The thing is that if someone is being shamed, stigmatized, bullied etc. for being fat, and we say “they aren’t fat” or “they aren’t even that fat” in their defense, what we are also saying is that there is a size at which they would deserve that treatment, and that’s just not true.

Countering fat shaming by denying fatness says that the person doesn’t deserve poor treatment (which is true) but at the expense of reinforcing the incorrect idea that they would deserve it if they were fat (or some greater degree of fat), or that being called fat is an insult. There is no size at which people deserve to be treated poorly.

Anonymous asked: Hey cutie! I'm worried about you, what will happen if you don't get money enough for the move? Will you atleast get to keep the money raised? :/ sending hugs and stuff! Already gave as much as I could. (You don't have to answrr this if it's tough or something)

Awh hello anon; so sweet of you to check up on me!

$2000 is my goal to make sure that I’ll have enough to keep me on my feet while I find a job, etc. I will definitely get to keep the money raised, and all of it will be going towards my rent, utilities, and groceries.

If a substantial amount of money isn’t raised by July 30th (ahhh that’s 15 days from now!!!), I’ll probably try to move in with someone in the area - anyone in the DC, Maryland, Virginia area that would be willing to take me in.

I do have an apartment lined up, and enough to pay the security deposit and first month’s rent, so that’ll hold me for a bit, but really, it’d be so great to get some more donations in.

Thank you so, SO much for your donation, though, really - I can’t tell you how much your generosity and kindness means to me. Around August I’ll be sending out thank you letters to everyone who donated. Your donations give me so much hope, and I am so incredibly humbled by everyone who has given so far.

If you’d like to continue to help, anon, could you share the donation link with your friends? I would so appreciate it.

animal testing is still very popular in the cosmetic industry! many companies are elusive and contract independent labs to do their testing for them. buying from these companies supports animal cruelty by telling them that it’s okay!
here are some popular companies you should boycott until they switch to humane practices:
axe
aveeno
clairol
clean & clear
covergirl
dove
giorgio armani 
johnson & johnson
lancome
l’oreal
maybelline
neutrogena
olay
pantene
suave
here are some great alternatives in every price range:
avon
bath & body works
bare essentials
the body shop
burt’s bees
clinique
essie
e.l.f.
lush
MAC
NYC
NYX (my favorite)
OPI
revlon
smashbox
stila
too faced
urban decay
victoria’s secret

Why is MAC on this list?? Because they definitely test on animals….

um what the fuck kind of list is this
essie tests on animals
clinique tests on animals
the body shop is owned by animal testing companies
nyc is unknown
mac tests on animals
avon tests on animals
bare essentials is owned by animal testers
stila DEFINITELY tests on animals
revlon DEFINITELY tests on animals
get the fuck out of here with your list full of lies, OP

^^^thank you! Elf is the only product I use out of the whole list so I wasn’t sure about the others, but this post is extremely misinformative!

Adding: NYC is owned by l’oreal.. not Cruelty Free
