I will always reblog this every time I see it!
I love this quote, but the problem is more than individual people. We live in a culture that encourages fat hatred and we live in a culture where if you have a crush on a fat girl and you’re a dude, you’re going to be thought less of by your bros and your masculinity will be called into question for daring to want someone outside the norm and it’s pervasive and disgusting and hurts a lot of people.
And I think we need to address that on more than an individual level. The individual level is a good place to start but it’s not enough.
Totally reblogging this because it is so true. It’s a very sexist, heteronormative idea that girls* do not think about sex; and, if they do, not as much as boys*. Girls* think about sex just as much as - if not, more than - boys*. I had a teacher once say that boys* thought about sex every 7 seconds. I remember all the girls* in the class all giggling…and I’m just sitting there like, *massive eye rolling* .
And, for the record, some girls* DO have body parts that give it away…just as some boys* do not.
To answer a boy’s question:
Girls think about sex. Like… all the time. Probably more then boys do. But we don’t have body parts that give it away that we’re horny.
