In conclusion Fiona is great and just because Disney didn’t make her doesn’t mean she doesn’t exist.

Is Junk Food Really Cheaper?
The answer is NO.
The “fact” that junk food is cheaper than real food has become a reflexive part of how we explain why so many Americans are overweight, particularly those with lower incomes. I frequently read confident statements like, “when a bag of chips is cheaper than a head of broccoli …” or “it’s more affordable to feed a family of four at McDonald’s than to cook a healthy meal for them at home.”
(via sunfoundation)

this bullshit fills me with a very specific kind of rage. so, TIME TO DEBUNK!
that meal from mcdonalds takes virtually no time to acquire AND is available almost anywhere.
the second meal? that “salad” is lettuce … with nothing else, not even dressing unless its just olive oil or some milk i guess? gross.
also thats the price of each serving, not an entire loaf of bread, a bottle of olive oil, etc. that stuff adds up which means you have to have a lot of money at one time to buy it all.
that meal probably took an hour and a half to make, which is a long fucking time when you work multiple jobs or are caring for a lot of people or dont have help! seriously, if you are a single parent of three who works, is spending an hour and a half every night preparing a meal a likely option?
same with beans and rice! also, you know whats a fucking bummer? eating beans and rice every night because you are poor. ask any person who has done it and they will tell you (you can start with me).
there is a “nutrition” argument here that lacks a follow up: poor people are more likely to be doing physical labor and need more than 571 calories per meal.
you know who is less likely to know how to bake or prepare a chicken? people without access to the internet, or libraries, or who werent taught how to by their parents because their parents worked all the time. access to healthy foods is a classist issue and classism is cyclical, you fucking morons.
seriously, these sorts of infographics make me want to fucking flip tables. do you know why people don’t eat more fresh fruits and vegetables? because fresh fruits and vegetables are expensive, because they take a long time to prepare, because they dont live near a grocery store that has a decent produce section, because they dont have reliable transportation to get groceries to and from the grocery store, because they dont have the energy to plan all of the shit that is involved in making healthy, intentional, filling, balanced meals. basically: poor people get fucked, and then we get BLAMED for being lazy.
eating “healthy”, aka access to fresh fruits and vegetables, is a privilege, first, foremost, always. so fuck you new york times and your ignorant goddamn infographic.
there are SYSTEMATIC REASONS that we do not have equal access to fresh fruits and vegetables. they are very REAL problems. besides, you know, systematic poverty in america, the total mis-distribution of farm subsidies is a perfect place to start. read about that, then either get bent or start working on the actual problem.

I love to cook, and I love to eat healthy, but this is very real.  I can live on $30/week for food if I have frozen burritos for lunch, but not necessarily if I make my own lunch.  Last week, in a (less than healthy) casual contest, a roommate bought some KFC and I made fried chicken from scratch.  His meal was ready by the time I got back from shopping - I had to go to two different stores on foot to get everything I needed.  The whole process took three hours, and that was with The Joy of Cooking as a handy reference.  Yes, I spent less money, and yes my chicken came out better, but not everybody can start dinner at 7pm, and wait until 10pm to eat.  Not everybody can or wants to walk 10 blocks to get all of their groceries.  Not everyone can butcher a raw chicken.  Though a whole organic free range chicken only cost me about $12, and wound up being dinner for three nights.

she was dressed modestly to begin with though wtf

But obviously girl knees are so much more psychologically problematic to a developing adolescent than watching adults wield and flex the ability to humiliate powerless children with the excuse that the knees of children are inherently sexually stimulating

the way she was dressed doesn’t matter it was the way they handled the situation like should she have been dress coded in the first place? no but even if her outfit blatantly violated the dress code the punishment is extremely innappropriate

my school also hands out shaming tshirts but i wear them with pride and in summer i put a knot in them so they’re exposing my stomach a lil. i’m not wearing a black size XL in 40 degrees celcius. shaming people like that is ridiculous and unecessary especially if it ends like this

in my middle school the vice principal had scissors on hand so she could cut off those “i <3 boobies” bracelets instead of telling kids to take them off. even though they weren’t even really violating the dress code at all. boobies were just too much for her i guess
