What Not To Wear is not about forcing people to fit in. Stacy and Clinton help women find their own unique styles. They’ve never told someone they have to be like everyone else. They want these women to be their own person. If you watched even one episode, you’d know that. They’ve also never told…

You’re absolutely right!
Women are conditioned by society to believe that their bodies are never good enough. Our waists are never thin enough, out breasts are never bouncy enough, our butts are never round enough, our pores are never small enough and our legs are never long enough. So women are constantly pushed to continue the process of “fixing” our bodies, even if we’re already been working hard for years and years.
Men, however, don’t have that sort of social pressure on their backs. Even though muscles are idealized in the media, men have been shown over and over again that they can be successful regardless of what their bodies may look like. Just think of all the sitcom husbands who are obese or not terribly good looking, yet have high paying jobs and gorgeous wives! Think of all the politicians out there who are past their prime and don’t look like supermodels, yet literally run the country. Their success is a way of providing men with many positive alternatives to “good” looks, which means that when men complete a diet, they often feel successful and satisfied regardless of the actual outcome - They don’t need to rely on their looks in order to gain social satisfaction.
And let’s not forget that when it comes to dieting, the word means two different things to most men and women: Women are taught to perceive dieting as weight loss, while men are taught to perceive it as muscle gain. Women are thus trying to lose an aspect of their bodies while men are seeking to gain strength. Not only is the actual dieting process typically different (and packaged by incredibly different commercial tactics!) but the symbolism is at completely opposite ends of the spectrum.
This social difference is why, at any given time, 20 million women are suffering from eating disorders, compared to 10 million men. 91% of college-aged women have gone on diets (and 5% say that they are “always” dieting). Meanwhile, at most, only 43% of men are dissatisfied with their bodies and are attempting to diet. This has nothing to do with the “success” of a diet and everything to do with the social pressure placed upon women’s body image. That makes women much more likely to develop an eating disorder during their lifetime - They feel as though their work is never done, even if they manage to lose hundreds of pounds. They’re taught to diet over and over again in order to fulfill the impossible expectations that are pushed onto them.
So it’s absolutely wonderful that you’ve used this meme to point out the many different ways that dieting affects men and women! Brava! Such social commentary, such poise - Good work.
Reblogging for the comment^^
This comment made my life.
I love you!
This is the best thing i’ve seen in ages. Good lord, look at the Falcon!
Creative as heck.
Notice how Shan Yu doesn’t even question it or make a comment about “BUT YOU’RE A GIRL” he just instantly goes into a “I’LL TEACH YOU TO KILL MY MEN AND STEAL MY VICTORY” rage and I think about this a lot sometimes
((Well that might have to do with the fact that he’s a Hun. Women among the Huns had higher status than their Chinese counterparts and even some of their own men. Women were free to hunt and fight along side of the men, could choose their own husbands and divorce him if she choose to. There were even records of clans being led by women leaders. So for Shan Yu Mulan is just another soldier))
thank you, history side of tumblr.
He also might not have been able to see very well, due to whatever horrible disease has taken hold in his eyeballs.
Pretty serious Wilson’s Disease judging by the copper buildup in in irises, and apparent melanocytosis localized to his sclera.

The ‘ghosts’ of extinct birds in modern ecosystems
by Darren Naish
It needs to be better appreciated that the vast majority of modern ecosystems and communities are ‘broken’ or, at least, very much incomplete compared to the situation present within very recent geological history: they lack an often significant number of key component species including some, many or all of the so-called keystone species.
Why? As is well known, human hunting, climatic change and a combination of the two has eradicated a diverse assemblage of big-bodied mammals, birds, crocodylians, tortoises and other taxa across the Americas, Australasia, the Pacific and elsewhere. Small-bodied taxa have been removed as well, across the board.
The animals I have in mind were generally ubiquitous throughout the Pleistocene, persisted into the early parts of the Holocene (that is, the last 11,700 years or so) and, in cases, survived into truly ‘modern’ times. Gigantic herbivorous birds, like moa on New Zealand and elephant birds on Madagascar, for example, were still alive as recently as 1000 years ago (at least).
Even in places where the megafauna has persisted (many of the Eurasian and east African taxa are still extant, for example), they are substantially reduced in population and range, typically being extinct across huge tracts of their historical range…

He makes a strong case that Comcast is throttling Netflix and it’s just as frustrating and wrong as he says it is.
I am moving soon and Comcast is one of my choices, not anymore. Thank you for this heads up! You’re not the first I’ve heard this from but now it has become waaay too many to ignore.
