Think Anorexia is funny? Sorry. I am a survivor and find NOTHING cute about this.

Wanna dress up like an Anorexic? All it takes is:

  • 4 years of hospitalization 
  • A nasogastric feeding-tube because you’ve starved yourself so much that your body doesn’t recognize food as a good thing and tries to attack itself.
  • Re-Feeding Syndrome, which can kill you. 
  • Emotional struggles for years. 
  • A father crying and pleading on his knees begging for you to get help
  • A mother who cries every time she sees you because you look and SMELL like death.
  • Holidays missed, birthdays crying in a hospital.
  • Almost every major organ in your body failing.
  • A shower chair - because you can’t stand in the shower because you’re too weak and the warm water could make you pass out.
  • A wheelchair, because you are too weak to walk and it could make you go into cardiac arrest.
  • A lifetime of medications for anxiety and the health issues “Anna Rexia” caused.
  • Plenty of money for multiple ER trips due to “Anna Rexia” even in recovery.
  • And if you don’t get help like I do, or even if you do, a coffin. Because I’ve lost more friends to this eating disorder then anything I’ve ever faced.

I almost died from this. I know it’s supposed to be funny and shit and yeah I get that, but seriously. THIS IS NOT FUNNY. Anorexia is nothing to party about or laugh at. It’s real, it’s deadly, and should not be marketed as a slutty outfit.

Want to dress as “Anna Rexia”? Just go as a Vampire, or a Zombie. Because 1/3 of us are dead.

i am fucking crying

So not only do we have racists Halloween costumes but we ALSO trivialize disorders? Okay, America.

WATCH: 18 arrested in protest of Ethiopian Jews against racism


———————————————————————-

The protest against the racism and discrimination against Ethiopian Jews continues. Yesterday a few dozen people, most of them Ethiopians, gathered for a small protest near the Tel Aviv Museum. No less than 18 were arrested; among them was Ulet Hararo, who marched last month from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem to protest racism and discrimination against his community. According to police, protesters were trying to block a street and the arrests were carried out to maintain public order.

The Ethiopian protests began last summer, as part of the J14 movement, but it erupted again after it was revealed that homeowners in the city of Kiryat Malachi, where almost 15 percent of the population are Ethiopians Jews, are refusing to rent their apartments to the black Ethiopians, and even signed a public letter demanding others would do the same.

I can’t take this.
Something must be done.
We shouldn’t bow out with passive aggressive melancholy.
We need to return to the ways of old like our foremothers and forefathers.
March on washington.
March for justice.
March for all the Trayvons who this system doesn’t care about!!!
We wait for…

boost.

Standing your ground means defending whiteness and white property at all times.

At all costs, even when it was not threatened from the start.
