Forever reblogging corset-related stuff on my main blog, and sj/feminism stuff on my corset blog. #emifail5life

Gonna start a rainbowcy in sims 3 because it’s not like I have two essays to do and exams to revise for hahahahahaha.

WHY ARE THESE BRAS ON SALE AND STILL £100

WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE

I’m buying this dress as long as it has no silk in it, but I’m second-guessing myself on the bra. I’m not sure if the cup shape is low enough that it wouldn’t show beneath low-cut dresses. Anyway, they’re both on sale from Lulu & Lush/Fairy Goth Mother and I am so excited. All I need’s a cute petticoat (maybe I can make one?) and I’m set.

Very impatient for my 24” waist thank you.

At least I know that by the time I have a corset that gets me there, I’ll have been through enough patterns that it should fit like a dream.

Driving is weirdly like riding a bike, in that you can pick it up and know how to do it even after months without it. In saying that, my clutch-work sucks balls and I need to work on slowing down when I need precision. Still. I think I’m doing okay considering I’ve not driven in like 6 months.

Tbh for all my dreaming of fostering kids, I can much more easily see myself setting up some kind of animal sanctuary/rescue. I have way more drive and a lot less fear around doing that.

I know children of colour are much less likely to be adopted/fostered than white kids, but I’m scared that I’d fuck up in caring for them if I ever tried, because I’m white. I wouldn’t want to mess up.

Anyone have a view on this?

feelin’ a lot of body hate rn, but instead of dignifying it with a post I’m just going to acknowledge it and move on.

What are you talking about? I thought people encouraged adoption! Just avoid foreign adoptions (too many of them are essentially kidnapped from their still living, still loving families…) and it’ll be fine!

This is the response I get literally any time I tell someone I don’t want to ~carry on the family tree~. They seem to think I’m obliged to, or that I’m broken for not being ‘broody’ and I’ll change my mind before I reach menopause.

People in general seem to encourage adoption in an abstract way, in that they want other people they don’t know to do it. But subconsciously, they think adopted children make some kind of inferior family. That’s certainly what I’ve experienced.

And no of course - foreign adoption is a bit dodgy. I think I’m mostly interested in fostering to be honest!

I want kids, but I don’t want to be pregnant, and I don’t particularly want them to share my genetics.

I just don’t see why having a kid that’s half related to me is so much more valid and acceptable than adopting or fostering a child, especially when the latter has the potential to actively improve someone’s life. They won’t be any less my child just because they’re genetically similar to someone else. We won’t have less of a bond, or less special a relationship. That’s some high level bullshit right there.

Stop telling me I’ll change my mind. You don’t know my desires any better than I do.

Really want to start playing through Zombies Run but I didn’t bring my running shoes home with me. Maybe I’ll just try and get back into pilates and yoga again for now.

So it’s been ~2 months now since I was blind drunk and ended up going home with some guy who never spoke to me again, and I think I’m ready to accept that the whole scenario upset me more than I tried to let on.

tw for alcohol, and rape/coercion (not because I consider this to have been either of those things, but just in case it triggers someone)

every so often I get anon hate via r/tumblrinaction, and it just brightens my day to be reminded that cishet men are as whiny and fragile as ever.
