This is the most accurate post I’ve seen on tumblr

You are standing wrong. I say this as a massage therapist who works with people’s bodies all day: women are taught to stand wrong. Since the 50’s, pictures of women have been posed with their feet tilted to the side, knees locked to minimize the natural knobby shape of the knee, and sway-backed to stick their asses out for “perkiness” or whatever.

That is bad for your everything, and causes weakness in the core muscles which tighten and flatten the stomach.

The cure: feet pointing directly forward, put your hand on your tailbone. Tilt your pelvis until the tailbone is straight up and down. This will cause your knees to bend very slightly. It makes a huge difference for back and knee pain, and will make your tummy flatter with no sit-ups or working out at all.

THANK YOU

I had a feeling my strangely giant stomach and spinal weirdness had to due with posture

I saw this post a few days ago and have since been taking care to stand and walk like this, and it’s done miracles for my back pains and aching feet at work!

No but guys, GUYS, we need to talk about how important this scene is.  Because the commonly accepted lore about unicorns is that they are so good and pure that they’ll only appear to young virginal girls.  Because Molly Grue is a middle-aged woman who has been living with bandits for most of her life and is as far from innocent and virginal as you’re likely to get.  Because she’s so angry that this creature, embodying everything that society tells her she’s lost, everything she’s thrown away through her own choices, is here now when all that The Unicorn represents is long since behind her.  Because she knows, in a way that only someone who’s been steeped in an oppressive system her entire life can ever know, that she’s missed her chance and doesn’t deserve to be seeing a unicorn now.

And you know what?  The Unicorn doesn’t give two fucks about her virginity, about her supposed loss of innocence and purity.  She’s not repelled by Molly being older, being experienced, being a full human person.  None of that has ever mattered to unicorns, only to the people telling stories about them.  Not only does she step in to physically comfort her here, but before long this bandit’s wife becomes her friend, closer to her in most ways than Schmendrick.

This story is fucking revolutionary, you guys, and I just have a lot of feelings about it.

I heard Peter S. Beagle speak about this scene at a convention once. He said he just kept writing and writing into the scene and suddenly here was this powerful, moving dialogue which came out very strong and natural, flowing directly from inspiration.

He said it was one of those moments when “the writer just gets really lucky.”

Alright, babies. I’ve never heard of this anime before today, and judging by the trailer’s views, neither have a lot of anime lovers. Reasons why everyone should watch it right now:

  • The main protagonists are a fine as hell lady of color and her mixed daughter
  • The main antagonist is a super fabulous woman of color, in an actual position of power, who rocks natural hair like a boss
  •  Michiko, the main character, is canonically bi and not a single fuck is given
  • The art is fucking perfect
  • There is an actual coherent and complex plot
  • All the main characters have a billion different costumes and they are all super cosplay worthy
  • There are two full seasons, both of which are already out~

The show is called Michiko & Hatchin and the first episode of the English Dub can be found in full right HERE.

The second is HERE. The third episode is right HERE.
And the whole seasons are available on Funimation and Amazon.

THAT ART

THAT PREMISE

THAT DETAIL

I’ve watched almost all of season one already, it is literally so god damn deep and there are so many layers to the story. It’s great. 

This has crossed my dash countless times and every single time I’m like,

"Oh shit, yeah, I still have to watch that, that sounds great."

It is great.
