I didn’t really know what to title this, or honestly to what end I’m writing this. It’s not a reaction to something that was said, nor is it an attack on those who have different opinions than mine; I just needed to write it down. The other day I posted the below photo in my Instagram story, because I realized that I use a lot of products daily. As soon as I posted it, I realized that though my friends aren’t usually the type to assume, some folks may see that as a way to either humble brag that I spend too much on products (1.

These adorable little nail wraps have taken over my life, and I can’t get enough of them. I ordered 3 sets from Personail a couple weeks ago, and got mine in last week.

Fangirls, I’ve had a big issue with this for a long time. It’s considered inappropriate for women’s bras to be visible in any way, including the strap. On one hand, I can totally understand it, but on the other, it really pisses me off.
I think it may be an unfortunate testament to my race that I only first heard this term a week ago. However, contrary to how it appears, white feminism isn’t about being white. I’m white, but I’m not going to get defensive, it doesn’t apply to me. I know where I stand. But we’ll address that point later.

Fangirls, I know we’ve discussed the importance of having female role models in the nerd related media before. Today I would like to talk about body type representation, because it’s something that can be extremely difficult to find for someone of my size.
