One of the most informative & friendly spaces on Tumblr. Also, one of the only people I know that does not identify with one of the normative binary genders. I always learn something new every time I talk to Chris, which isn’t as often as I’d like

First of all, it’s panzerbjoern, aka Jakob, aka Gusti.
Where do I start? This man is large, smart, assertive, doesn’t take anyone’s shit, keeps it real, and always brightens my day. We’ve known each other for a while now & have even met IRL a few times. I’m sad he doesn’t live as close now, but I can’t wait until I get to see him again. I love you, Gusti!
Super cute, enjoy the blog, but I’ve never really talked to him.
BREAKING: September 9th will be officially an entire month since the murder of Ferguson African-American unarmed teenage Michael Brown, at the hands of racist Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson. In this entire month, Officer Darren Wilson hasn’t been heard from, he has literally disappeared. He still has not been arrested, charged, or indicted in the murder of Michael Brown.
The FCC sided with Comcast and decided to let ISPs censor the internet. The Internet needs to stop this from happening: http://cms.fightforthefuture.org/tellfcc/
Last Wednesday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler announced a proposal for new rules that would allow for a “ fast lane” of Internet traffic for content providers who are willing (and able) to pay a fee.  The proposal reverses the FCC’s previous commitment to net neutrality and open internet and allows ISP’s like Comcast or Verizon to slow down and censor services that don’t pay the toll.
We have to be totally honest, this situation is seriously grim. But there is still hope. The FCC already knows that the Internet community wants net neutrality, but they think they can put their spin on these new rules and sneak them through. If we can prove them wrong right now with a massive public outcry, we can literally save the Internet once again.
We need to stop the FCC now. Big business groups are already ramping up lobbying efforts with the FCC in swarms since Wednesday’s announcement in support of censoring the open Internet and to ensure this dangerous proposal moves forward. 
This is a critical moment. In the last few weeks more than 65,000 people have taken action with us. Can you help us get to 80,000 by the end of the day today?

Honestly, the soundtrack for this movie honestly was one of my favorite parts
“Written Attraction” is part of a bigger project I currently (semi) completed for my Info-graphics/systems class. I decided, since I am an avid chubby chaser, that I would make my topic about fat people, “obese.” I felt that I wanted to convey a different outlook on chubby people than most students and professors have not seen before. So, I created a website and a video to go on the website. This is the video component, where I draw on my friend Charlie’s body to show areas of attraction and emphasis his features that are beautiful.
Here is a segment from a psychologist that hit’s my topic on the nose, and what I want to have as a base in my project.
“As a new, interdisciplinary field of intellectual inquiry, fat studies is defined part what it is not.
For example, if you believe that fat people could (and should) lose weight, then you are not doing fat studies—you are part of the $58.6 billion-per-year weight loss industry or its vast consumer base.
If you believe that being fat is a disease and that fat people cannot possibly enjoy good health or long life, then you are not doing fat studies. Instead, your approach is aligned with “obesity” researchers, bariatric surgeons, and public health officials who declare “war on obesity”, and the medico-pharmaceutical industrial complex that profits from dangerous attempts to “cure” people of bodily difference.
If you believe that thin is inherently beautiful and fat is obviously ugly, then you are not doing fat studies work either. You are instead in the realm of advertising, popular media, or the more derivative types of visual art-in other words, propaganda.”
This is the ideo of the stop motion, (incomplete) Soon to be refined.
It is now 3 weeks since Michael Brown was murdered by Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson. Officer Darren Wilson still has not been arrested, charged, or even brought to prison or court for the murder of Michael Brown.
- Do not forget Michael Brown
- Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
- Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
- Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
- Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $400,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
- Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
- Do not forget Ferguson
