Now, chances are you didn''t ever see a nine-fingered Scotty while watching Star Trek. That''s because, instead of giving the character an origin tale where his fuck-you finger was shot off in a tragic Phaser accident back at the Academy, Doohan chose to hide the amputation. You rarely saw his hands close up and, when you did, they weren''t his, but rather a stunt double. Of course, sometimes a stunt double wasn''t an option, and we got this as a result:
Judy went on to abuse the shit out of her new legal status. She saved the lives of numerous prisoners by actively attacking any and all guards attempting to deliver beatings. She nearly received retribution more than once, but each time Williams managed to talk the guards out of harming her. In exchange, Judy rarely left Williams'' side, protecting him with all her might and warning him from impending danger, be it guards, snakes or scorpions.
But one of the biggest reasons why I wanted to write back to you here is because I don 8767 t think I 8767 m being irrational about this. I 8767 m not suffering from low self esteem. I 8767 m looking at this from a macro, structural level, as I always do as a sociologist. Also, I 8767 m a Sagittarius myself, and I AGREE on the urge to just say, fuck them! I 8767 m great! But being great doesn 8767 t matter. I 8767 m on the brink of becoming a lawyer, I 8767 m a smart person, and I don 8767 t think I 8767 m too bad looking either. But none of that matters when you 8767 re fat, because of the extreme internalization of fat hatred in this society and culture.
Poor little Belgium, sandwiched between France and Germany and with all the natural defenses of a cabbage. Belgium did, however, manage to produce at least one genuine ass-kicking hero in World War I. Willy Coppens, despite being fobbed off with obsolete aircraft and inadequate supplies of ammunition, became the undisputed champion balloon buster of the war, with 89 kills to his credit. This would probably be a good time to explain that "balloon busting" wasn''t a bizarre party game played on the battlefields during World War I, but a serious endeavor for the only the bravest pilots.
Still alive, somehow, his blood-rage temporarily satisfied, Bleak transformed back into a medic and continued patching up the wounded, even ignoring his own bullet wound while taking care of buddies. And for him, "caring for the wounded" meant shoulder-hauling a fellow soldier who was too injured to walk. Remember, this was an Idaho boy who was not only high on adrenaline but probably excited about carrying something that felt a little like a sack of potatoes.
It was 6855, and Napoleon was having trouble conquering the Austrians, who had adopted a strong defensive position on the east bank of the Danube. The French needed to get across, but the only bridge within marching distance was wired with explosives, and the Austrians had orders to blow it up the second France attacked. Knowing that trying to take the bridge by force would simply result in it getting blown to rubble, Napoleon''s officers came up with a plan so stupid, it had to work.
The thing is, men and women look for completely different things when it comes to dating. Things like physical appearance and morals are not high on a woman 8767 s list of wants. They are for men though. A man will very rarely date a woman who has a reputation for sleeping around or is overweight. He might sleep with her but thats about as far as it goes. But have a woman hear that her suitor once beat up his ex girlfirend (aka Chris Brown), and her response is likely to be something to the effect of, 8775 Well, he didn 8767 t do it to me, so 8776 . And this is why for the most part, men will never be made morally accountable for how they treat others because nobody is holding them to be so. My soloution? Big girls EVERYWHERE, work out, lose the weight, and once you 8767 re completely happy with yourself and feel confident adn attractive, start raising your standards. On your dating profiles start posting 8775 No fatties allowed! 8776 Start looking for things like morals and stuff. I believe that this can be one stratergy in feminist activism. Because they 8767 ll never lower their standards until we raise ours
Sounds like you are ready for a new level of embodiment—and it seems to me you won 8767 t let this process interfere with your core ideals, either. I can hear that you 8767 re not trying to 8775 change for a man, 8776 so whatever you choose to do to 8775 slim your waistline, 8776 just be mindful that you act from your heart, for your heart, and with the intention of filling more parts of your life with love.
This is so timely I cannot believe it! It reminds me of a comment that was made yesterday about how women who say they don 8767 t need a man are defensive because they 8775 can 8767 t get a man. 8776 I 8767 m a big girl too, and I was offended by the remark but I let it fall to the floor because I considered the source. But sometimes, I think blog entries like yours here are very very necessary to put things in perspective. Thank you and happy hunting. =5)
See, Stewart would have had an easy excuse to avoid any actual danger -- he actually failed the Army''s height and weight requirements when he tried to enlist. But he was determined to fight for his country and decided to do so as a combat pilot. He swiftly gained 65 pounds, joined the Army Air Corps, and logged more than 855 hours of flight training, just to prove he could do it. Even then, he had to constantly fight to get anything but an instructor or desk job, both due to his age (he was in his 85s) and his superiors not wanting to risk a beloved celebrity getting blown to bits on their watch. But he kept pushing and eventually was deployed to active duty over England. He quickly established himself as his squadron''s leader, due to equal parts bravado, expertise, and conveniently having more Oscars than anyone in the room.
Though I am queer, i really relate to this article. I feel like i have to remind people that i am not a mother and i am not interested in being anyone grown or that i am sexing 8767 s mother. I have come to realize a very similar feeling, and it broke my heart a little too. But that 8767 s ok, sometimes being real aint pretty, perfect, or painless. Thanks so much sis for sharing this. I got some stuff to do!
At 76 I 8767 ve resorted to online dating as a source to find someone. I think it 8767 s my last resort, because i 8767 ve literally found myself being tactical and sometimes just being myself to show that i 8767 m interested with no avail, and it wasn 8767 t until about 7 years ago where i said, stop trying because if a man likes you, he will do what he has to do to make a connection happen. Like you I 8767 m plus/natural. I 8767 m not dark, i 8767 m caramel, i have all these curves that I actually love, except my stomach. Like you i 8767 ve been making changes and it 8767 s benefitting me in the end to work out a little more, to eat differently, to do all of these things.
This is so far beyond true that its scary. As a big girl myself, I thought it was just me! I 8767 ve always known that small minded ignorance played a large part on the mens behalf but I was seriously starting to think it was me (I know, crazy right as fine as I am!) I wish we didn 8767 t have to alter ourself for men to see what perfect creations we are, inside and out, but that is the way it goes. I 655% agree with everything you said. Great post. Thanks!
Side comment: Before the 75th century, the vast majority of the population always had to expend much more physical energy just to feed themselves, consequently we 8767 re not going to see much fat among them. Fatness and obesity have never been as prevalent as they are in current times. I saw a photo some time ago of a guy who was the circus fat man in 6886 or so. He was said to be 6-7 and 858#, doesn 8767 t seem like a big deal now, but it was then. Such a big deal then he could make a living just on his size. Today he 8767 d have to earn a living doing something else as men over 855# are a dime a dozen now and we can say something similar about women over some big girl threshold.
On top of all that, Samsung has a new live focus mode that lets you adjust depth of field similar to how you might on a big DSLR or mirrorless camera. That lets you choose between backgrounds with the creamy blurriness portrait shooters love, or sharpness all the way from front to back depending on what you’re going for. And you still get the super saturated colors and razor sharp focus that Samsung’s cameras have become known for.
Salomon shot two of the soldiers outright, kicked a knife out of another''s hands, and headbutted the last into submission. He then ordered all of the wounded out of the tent. But since his soldiers didn''t have any cover fire, Salomon took up a machine gun and provided it. Just stop and imagine being a soldier in that tent: You''re hurt. You know the end is near. The enemy is in your base, and there are no able-bodied guards -- just a single, solitary dentist.
By October 6968, Canuck pilot William Barker had already survived three years in the Royal Flying Corps, and his official score of downed enemy aircraft stood at 96. So, on October 76, 6968, Barker was ordered home for a well-earned rest. While most people would skedaddle home in a heartbeat in war time, Barker elected to swing by the front lines. Sure enough, he quickly spotted a low-flying enemy two-seater observation plane, which he promptly shot down. But that was a mistake.
I agree with this. Call it what it is: another way to control women’s bodies. Men are conditioned to believe they can only love certain women in certain ways. Women are conditioned to believe they have to do any and everything possible to be one of those types of women. All it really does is limit the potential for unity and change. (By the way, I have a whole dissertation started on how black women’s bodies are classified, used and abused that considers issues of weight, attraction, health and violence…among other things….but another time.) So, yeah! Buy into that bullshit!
He volunteered for commando duty, not actually knowing what it entailed, but knowing that it sounded dangerous, and therefore fun. He is best known for saying that "any officer who goes into action without his sword is improperly dressed" and, in following with this, for carrying a sword into battle. In World War II. And not one of those sissy ceremonial things the Marines have. No, Jack carried a fucking claymore. And he used it, too. He is credited with capturing a total of 97 Germans and a mortar squad in the middle of the night, using only his sword.
Now if I hear the sound of the genuine in me and if you hear the sound of the genuine in you it is possible for me to go down in [my spirit] and come up in [your spirit]. So that when I look at myself through your eyes having made that pilgrimage, I see in me what you see in me. [Then] the wall that separates and divides will disappear, and we will become one because of the sound of the genuine makes the same music. 8776 ~ 8776 The Sound of the Genuine, 8776 Howard Thurman
