DISCLAIMER: I'M BITCHING...U GOT A PROBLEM WITH IT OR DISAGREE, POST THAT SHIT ON YOUR WALL, NOT MINE.
If somebody says something that applies to them, don't try to discount it by adding your exceptions to the rule to discount someone's point...totally annoying:
I say, Black Lives Matter
Then someone says, "All Lives Matter."
That's annoying and disrespectful, you're trying to minimize the fact that black lives are obviously not important in a world where Black folks are systematically murdered and the cops walk off free. That's actually not happening to "all lives" or "white people's lives," that's what happening to black lives. Hence the term "Black Lives Matter" becomes a reminder for us all to start making them matter.
I post a plus size woman's photo and say,
Women who eat R beautiful
Then someone says, "we all eat and that plus size woman goes to the gym"
The inference is that only plus size women who go to the gym are beautiful or that all women eat and none of us are punished for eating normally and being a normal size which in America is somewhere between a 10-14.
But when you turn on the TV, every single woman has child-sized hips, weighs 100lbs and does not eat regularly. That is simply a fact. Find a woman working in TV that eats a regular 1200 calories per day and you will find the last unicorn.
I say this to say: when someone posts something to make a point. If the point doesn't apply to you, stop devaluing their POV by co-opting the conversation with stupid comments.
If black folks and normal size women weren't discriminated against, there would be no black lives matter or body shaming movements happening...
