beautiful things, twisted

Something's been stuck in my mind since a conversation with my boyfriend on the bus.
I made a face at him, and when he said "please stop," I teasingly accused him of saying I wasn't pretty. He then went on to say something along the lines of "the most disturbing things are just beautiful things, twisted." My mind went straight to blogging that. lol. I guess you girls can interpret that however you want, it's just so awesome I had to post it.

I guess that's true. It also transitions into a rant I've been wanting to have for a while now. Photoshopped thinspo.

I've seen them on actual thinspirational sites, and they're always the kind of pictures you see that come up in the news when someone decides it's a slow week and they want to prod the mentally ill on TV. The media always tries to dehumanize these girls and scare people. I mean, we all know anorexia is bad, but it's a mental illness, it doesn't make us circus freaks.

But I digress. Girls, you should never get your thinspo from

Know quality when you see it.

Until next time, ladies
