    I’ve noticed a funny thing about Melissa McCarthy. Well, besides the obvious, that she’s funny. But I’ve noticed that when Jennifer Lawrence talks about her weight, she talks about how much food she eats, and how she’s never going to diet to be thin. And when Melissa McCarthy is quoted about her weight, this is what she says:

    “I don’t really know why I’m not thinner than I am.”

    “I want to be healthy.”

    “I just don’t lose weight easily.”

    “Sometimes I wish I were just magically a size 6 and I never had to give it a single thought.”

    Because Melissa McCarthy actually is a fat woman, she isn’t allowed to make brash statements about body acceptance. She has to apologize for her body. Every single one of those quotes might as well have just said, “Sorry I’m fat and you have to look at me, everyone.” But it’s all she’s allowed to say, in the confines of our culture. If Melissa McCarthy had said, “If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet,’ I’m like, ‘You can go f– yourself,” the response will most assuredly not be, “How brave! How strong! What a good role model!” The response will be, “What a bad example, encouraging people to be unhealthy! We have an obesity epidemic! Open your eyes, fat is not healthy, sexy, or acceptable! How very dare she!”

    do action movies know they can have more than one female character

    Someone should make an action movie with all girls except for one guy and have no explanation or mention of it in the movie and then pay all of the actors to act surprised like they’d never noticed when they get the inevitable storm of questions. 

    This one male must have a shower scene, be saved by the protagonist at least once, and fall in love with a lead female.

    The NYPD tried to start a hashtag outpouring of positive memories with their police force. 

    If this were ever a bad idea, it was probably the worst idea for arguably the most corrupt police force in America.

    saying “that’s how things are” is incredibly useless when talking about social issues because yes, we are aware that that’s how things are, and we don’t like it, that’s the whole point

    congratulations on providing no useful input to the conversation
