Ok, so i’m not trying to get you to pity me, but I felt the need to address this. I’m a size 0-2 (depends on the store), and I weigh less than 100 pounds. I eat what I want, exercise regularly, participate in PE, and my doctors say I am at a healthy weight for my height (i’m barely 5 feet). I constantly get called anorexic behind my back, when in reality I am very healthy. I eat veggies, fruit, protein, all that good stuff. But I also eat cakes, cookies, snickers, candies, ice cream, etc. And no, I do not throw it all up. It’s just the way I am, I was born with this body type. But something I’ve been noticing on Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, and in real life, is that when people are trying to defend and comfort someone more curvy, often times we just insult people who are slim. Sometimes that evolves into stereotyping people who are slim to be anorexic, ugly, and just disgusting. Now, don’t get me wrong, I have absolutely nothing against people with curves. I think everyone is beautiful, but this just pisses me off so much. I mean, I’m starting to feel bad about being slim! What I want everyone reading this to remember is that
- not all slim people have an eating disorder
- never insult another group of people to defend another
- except all body types
- there is such a thing as skinny shaming, and it needs to stop

Please Understand: Iwata cuts his salary after dismal profits
According to AFP, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata will be receiving half of his usual salary for the next five months in a small act of atonement for the terrible year Nintendo had, most in part due to the Wii U.
Nintendo’s revenues dipped 8.1% in the last couple months. [❤]
Gee, when’s the last time the president of a Western corporation slashed his own salary as an apology for their company’s performance?
… Ohyeah. They don’t. They just skullfuck the lower echelons of their power structure, slash and burn the rank and file, and give themselves a six-figure bonus for being so smart and valuable to the company.
Which is why guys like this dude earn my respect regardless of what blunders they make with their company direction. Nintendo suffers, and he chose to suffer with it as a show of good faith.
The last time he took a cut (50%!), it was the year the 3DS was released. There is still hope yet.
things ppl rly need to stop glorifying

- having social anxiety
- being socially awkward
- spending all of your time on the internet
