I am so completely IN LOVE with myself today and I can’t say I really have any regrets. 

Also, this shirt <3 Got it from Debs and it’s my first time wearing it, such a great buy!

I waited in line to get a photo with Elizabeth Warren and was kicked out because I didnt have a book. I couldn’t afford it but thought I could get a photo since they were letting people with books take photos with her. When I was kicked out I said I couldn’t afford it and was almost out of the hall when an older man handed me a book and told me to go get a photo.

So here are my photos, including me pointing out how her book is close to what I spend each week on food and that I was kicked out of line for being too poor to afford it. I was also able to tell her to fight the “treat and reduce obesity act” that is being pushed by obesity alliance coalition to have Medicaid cover weight loss surgery and diet pills. It has financial ties to the makers of lap band, Allergan, and the director is the former policy director of glaxosmithkline. I’m kind of weepy but I told her I need access to food not weight loss.

WHAT DID SHE SAY?

She said that she would look into it and thanked me for bringing it to her attention. She seemed really interested in how it was backed by drug companies.

netflix is infinitely better than tv because there’s no weight loss commercials to sit through

i will NEVER understand how men dont realize how utterly disrespectful it is to reblog someone’s completely nonsexual, fully clothed photos amongst a bunch of porn

like how clueless can you get??

it really highlights how they view women purely as objects.
