This is a problem and I really don’t think people know it. I really think people feel like they mean well when they say things like “Big girls need love too.” Whether people mean well or not, that is a highly problematic statement that women need to stop accepting. What do you mean “too”? Like “also”? Like, in addition to other classifications of girls, “big girls” should be loved? I don’t like that subliminal separation. Actually ALL girls, all women, all beings require and deserve love. Saying “big girls need love too” makes the assumption that fat women generally do not have love and that is an awful generalization to make. I don’t want to be used as a figurehead for words like that. I have love. I have never been without love. I’m not in need of love, though I always welcome it. So what is actually meant to be conveyed? Is this another one of those “I’ve been conditioned to view overweight and obese women as disgusting, but I somehow, regrettably, find you attractive, and because I have a sociological issue with your fat I need to euphemize and shrink what I feel is wrong with you in order to address you without the risk of embarrassment” statements? Miss me with it. I don’t want it. What big girls actually need is for you to hush.

I don’t get it at all.

In the 1890s, when Freud was in the dawn of his career, he was struck by how many of his female patients were revealing childhood [sexual] victimization to him. Freud concluded that child sexual abuse was one of the major causes of emotional disturbances in adult women and wrote a brilliant and humane paper called “The Aetiology of Hysteria.” However, rather than receiving acclaim from his colleagues for his ground-breaking insights, Freud met with scorn. He was ridiculed for believing that men of excellent reputation (most of his patients came from upstanding homes) could be perpetrators of incest.
Within a few years, Freud buckled under this heavy pressure and recanted his conclusions. In their place he proposed the “Oedipus complex,” which became the foundation of modern psychology… Freud used this construct to conclude that the episodes of abuse his clients had revealed to him had never taken place; they were simply fantasies of events the women had wished for… This construct started a hundred-year history in the mental health field of blaming victims for the abuse perpetrated on them and outright discrediting of women’s and children’s reports of mistreatment by men.

did you know that the doctors who did eric garner’s autopsy concluded that obesity was one of the factors in his death? i mean he was held in a chokehold by a police officer where otherwise he would have lived… but also yeah probably being fat killed him a little sure makes sense

"It was a homicide — and the chokehold killed him."

Yet;

The autopsy determined the victim’s asthma, obesity and high blood pressure were also contributing factors in his death.

There you go Black people. You need to be thin in case police want to put you in a choke hold.

Oxford Dictionary of National Biography podcast: Kray brothers, English gangsters

The Kray brothers became icons of a very British form of criminality inextricably linked with memories of the 1960s. There were three brothers, Charles James Kray (1926–2000), born on 9 July 1926 at 26 Gorsuch Street, Shoreditch, London, and the twins Reginald Kray (1933–2000) and Ronald Kray (1933–1995), born on 24 October 1933 at 68 Stean Street, Hoxton, London. Their parents were Charles David Kray, a hawker and wardrobe dealer, a door-to-door dealer in second-hand clothing and jewellery, who was seldom at home, and his wife, Violet Lee (d. 1982). The adult males of the extended family prided themselves on their fierce independence; Charles senior spent most of the Second World War avoiding military service. The boys were brought up by their protective mother at 178 Vallance Road, Bethnal Green, London; although 60 per cent of the children in that area were malnourished, and 85 per cent of its housing stock was deemed officially unsatisfactory, Bethnal Green was better than Hoxton. Ron suffered from a series of serious illnesses as a child, and developed as a somewhat slower and more reserved individual than his identical twin, with an active fantasy life based on his charismatic leadership of a gangster firm. 

The story of the Kray brothers is one of over 200 episodes available from the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography’s podcast archive. New episodes are released every second Wednesday.
