I'm a librarian, a bellydancer, a fibre artist, a knitter, a lover, a fat activist, a queer. "I am large, I contain mutlitudes."
Ask me anything


The Girl Who Would Be Death (1998-1999), written by Caitlín R. Kiernan.

Ooh, I missed this when it came out—I’m going to try and find it and read it.

1: the glass display cases as you come in from the lobby. When you peer in, there’s covers and info on selected banned books. Masterminded by our admirable and courageous adult services librarian.

2: front desk display with current and past ALA booklets.

3: an article from 1943 about a display of Nazi-banned books that one of the reference staff found while going through microfilm. I keep it hanging by my desk.

Momentarily peaceful coexistence. They settled in with only one half-hearted attempt at hamstringing her sister on Abra’s part. #kitties #catsofinstagram #instacat #cats #kitty #cat

Really nerdy post! We used our portable washer for the first time this evening and it was really cool! It worked well, I would recommend Haier.

Can a thin person have body image struggles? Can a thin person be at war with their self-image? Can a thin person hate to look in the mirror?


And does that suck?


But the difference between these negative feelings and fatphobia is this: The only person worrying about whether or not I’m meeting beauty standards is me.

And that’s not the same for fat folk.

When you’re not thin, other people on the beach actually do take offense. When you’re not thin, people really do think that you shouldn’t be in a bathing suit. When you’re not thin, people really do make your body their moral obligation.

And while your internal struggle is real and significant, the point is: You might hate your body, but society doesn’t.

That’s thin privilege.

Tres elegant! #catsofinstagram #cat #kitty

This bunch of stuff is now two closets that have bars to actually hang things up in!
