REALLY just wanna take this chance to remind the people who follow me to not kill/trap opossums if they’re in your yard, and do not call animal control! Seriously.

  1. Opossums are literally 100% BIOLOGICALLY INCAPABLE of carrying rabies. Their body temperature is too cool to incubate it properly.
  2. Opossums are actually quite gentle and NOCTURNAL, so if they’re roaming, they’ve probably gotten lost, been injured, and are looking for a place to hide.
  3. Young opossums tend to try to climb into garbage cans when they’re starving. This is because THEY ARE LITERALLY STARVING. Don’t fucking shoot them or hit them with things because you wanna be some fucking macho top-of-the-food-chain cocksucker.
  4. Mama possums are amazing mothers and if you encounter an “aggressive” opossum, it’s probably because she’s got babies hanging off her nipple and she’s freaking out. They’re clumsy. Sometimes they don’t hear you coming and  you catch each other off guard.
  5. Wanna lure an opossum off of your property? You can set up a box with some greens and cat kibble in it, hide it well, and lure them out that way. They’re actually quite harmless and keep other predators away. they eat lotsa gross stuff.
  6. Opossum mamas who get hit by cars often still have their helpless babies attached to them. Possums get a bad rep and people say they are “the dumbest animal”, but they are incredible creatures who have been around since the days of fucking dinosaurs so treat them well, okay?

Aww!!!

So I have a legitimate concern about the too big post. I am dating someone who has some major depression and they've gained 70+lbs in the past year. And though I love them with all of my heart, I don't feel attracted to them like I used to. I want to support the movement for women to feel empowered by their bodies, but I have these conflicting feelings regarding my attraction to women and my ability to empower them. Is there a place for partner preference?

Yeah of course. Physical attraction is important and there is difference between liking certain kinds of women and empowering them. You don’t have to be physically attracted to them to help them feel accepted by society. What I believe is that we shouldn’t go around saying everyone is physically beautiful, because they’re not. There are physically ugly people in the world. However, that doesn’t mean they are worth any less. We should be teaching people that no matter what you look like, no matter what size you are you are worthy of love and belonging. We should not be telling them “you’re physically beautiful” if they’re not. And that’s okay. We value physical beauty far more than we should. However, you cannot help what you’re physically attracted to (you can control your actions) so if you’re not attracted to big girls then that’s fine, you can still be accepting of larger people and help them feel loved in society. As far as your partner is concerned, just give her all of your love. If you feel the relationship is worth it, you should help her feel accepted and talk to her about your feelings in the least selfish way possible. I’m not an expert in any of this, just my opinion.
