Oh hell nah!
My dad would be terrified
I would want the aisle seat.
Imagine it’s a late night flight, and everyone’s dozing off. In your half-asleep stupor you look down at the floor and you see a face gazing in at you through the glass, a face of something not quite human..welcome to Tumblr, where the most interesting topics twist into nightmares.
In honor of Katniss’s birthday, I give you all a present! I hope you enjoy it.
Alrighty, Mutthatter posted this about a month ago maybe, but I’ve only just discovered it. And it got me thinking. Food is everywhere in the Hunger Games trilogy. We already know that some foods contain very important symbology to the story (mainly bread and berries). It is possible, in my opinion entirely likely, that any food that has a recurring appearance holds great significance to the trilogy. Bread, berries, lamb stew (lambs to the slaughter, anyone?), and now apples, because they are all over the place in this story. In the post I linked above, mutthatter discusses the three types of berries we see and their importance. Her analysis of the berries - it’s fantastic, I recommend you go read it if you have not already (it’s short and sweet). The only one I’m not completely sold on yet is the blackberries. I’ve seen those used as symbols of neglect and arrogance, so I’m still thinking on that one. The bread is fairly obvious and has been discussed from this side of the galaxy to the next, so what I want to talk about is the apples. Hold on to your butts, I may be pulling this from…yeah, thin air. And it’s a little lengthy.
"Morphling Memories" by GhtlovesThg
In the twilight of morphling, Peeta whispers the word and I go searching for him. It’s a gauzy, violet-tinted world, with no hard edges and many places to hide. I push through cloud banks, follow faint tracks, catch the scent of cinnamon, of dill. Once I feel his hand on my cheek and try to trap it, but it dissolves like mist through my fingers.”
- Mockingjay, Chapter 16
When everything’s meant to be broken,
I just want you to know who I am.
It was in the song she made so she's responsible for it and I don't think it's cool or funny to say that skinny girls are bitches or not attractive when many girls have physical or health problems which are the reasons why are they skinny and that king of songs won't help them to get through it.

ok but do you realize that one or two songs that literally the worst thing said about skinny girls is “calling them skinny bitches” but for the most part they are praised for their looks. but on the other hand there are countless things seen everyday throughout their entire lives by larger women to make them feel bad about their bodies, what’s helping them get through it? skinny girls only care about body positivity when they feel like skinny people are being attacked.Lmao made three posts about how skinny shaming isn’t even remotely comparable to fatshaming and lost ten followers these skinny bitches should eat more maybe they wouldn’t be so irritable.
i always lose at least one follower but i honestly dont care
my sister even had someone we’d been friends with for years get pissed and call her ignorant for saying skinny shaming isn’t as bad as fat shaming
[had problems reblogging and then couldn’t find the same post, so just copied and pasted it onto this post instead, as it’s in relation - so hope you don’t mind!]
I don’t usually comment on posts like this however intriguing and interesting they are, as my blog is firmly a Stelena blog. However this struck a personal note with me, I’m guessing this ‘skinny shaming’ debate has all arose from Nicki Minaj’s recent video, which I find amusing..
You know I agree, ‘skinny shaming’ isn’t as bad as fat shaming and I say that due to the scale, a much larger percentage of people get shamed for being fat than they do skinny. A high number of larger people, have suffered verbal abuse due to being overweight, throughout their entire lives - which is out right wrong, falling victim to bullying is not pleasant, whatever the reason be. Therefore it has to be highlighted that, any shaming about anyone’s body shape is pretty much unacceptable, fat, skinny, short or tall.. They are all physical features and no one should be shamed for their physical appearance.
However I am a ‘skinny’ person (well would be ‘classed as’). I have been a ‘bag of bones’ as I mockingly call myself, as early as I can remember, I have a fast metabolism and fall under the body type of ectomorph (tall and thin).
I’ve pretty much tried everything to put on weight over the years *and trust me I can eat ALOT* but always end up unsuccessful in gaining weight, so I have given up now and have grown comfortable with my body shape. Some people say I am lucky I can’t gain weight, yes there are definitely perks, but I am still at risk of getting diabetes, heart problems and high cholesterol from unhealthy eating, just like everybody else. The ‘skinny shaming’ I don’t buy it, to me body shaming is body shaming. I’ve often over the years (even through high school) received comments on my shape, from both men and women, comments like: 'you need to put on weight', 'your too skinny' ,'lanky', 'stick insect', 'twig' [haha some of them are quite funny] 'Are you sure your eating enough?' not necessarily abusive as of such, but for a young person to consistently hear comments such as these, when you are genuinely eating healthy and thought you were happy with who you look at in the mirror, they can really begin to knock your self-esteem. Not enough ‘ass’ not having enough ‘curve’ is something I seriously envy in curvier girls. So yes, I can see why for some, Nicki Minaj’s video would make them feel not sexy enough or feminine enough, compared to naturally curvier women. [Who are truly beautiful in the video might I add]
There seems to be this consistent battle of the female body types, but what I want to know is, where’s the celebration of all female forms? All are beautiful, whether you are naturally curvy, skinny, short or tall. There’s beauty in all of these shapes. The female form comes in various sizes and that’s what makes it sexy.
Say he don’t like ‘em boney, he want something he can grab
Yeah, he love this fat ass
Yeah, this one is for my bitches with a fat ass in the fucking club
I said, where my fat ass big bitches in the club?
Fuck those skinny bitches, fuck those skinny bitches in the club
I wanna see all the big fat ass bitches in the motherfucking club
Fuck you if you skinny bitches WHAT?
So I did wonder when hearing these particular lyrics… is there any real need? Yes celebrate curvier women, I’m all for it! But was there really any need to put this verse in and dig smaller/slimmer females - basically another body type? I don’t know, I personally think there wasn’t. To celebrate one particular body type, you don’t need to mock the other. I couldn’t help but be a little disappointed in Nicki - being as she’s such a strong female figure.. because union is what we need.
These comments being made digging at ‘skinnier’ people, don’t just aim at these ‘girls’ who purposely eat little/workout too much to look skinny [which is a silly way to live and treat your body - anyone with common sense knows that] but also aim at people like me, who actually cannot help the way that they look, not to mention some skinny people that actually suffer conditions such as anorexia and bulimia. It’s comments such as 'skinny bitches should eat more' that actually do offend people like myself, like 'fat bitches should eat less' would offend a person of a larger size.
Moral of this post: Think before you make a comment about someone else’s body, whatever the shape or size.
I’ve never understood when people say “real women have curves”-
what does that make me? a mutant? what has my skinny ass body been living as the past 19 years? please tell me what i am.
