we as a society need to start talking about abusive friendships, bc those exist and seem to be really common
and most people in them dont know how do deal w the abuse bc its normally emotional abuse which.gets delegitimized, and its a platonic relationship and not a romo or sexual one, so it gets delegitimized for that too
These Pottermore stats literally go against every house stereotype ever
RAVENCLAWS WERE THE BEST FINDERS WHAT NO THAT’S NOT RIGHT
hi everybody! as a lot of you already know, i recently got back home to america from england where i fell in love with my beautiful girlfriend, becca hislastbough. i have never in my entire life been happier than in the weeks i spent with her, every day i genuinely fell more in love, and even though it hasn’t been long we are both very serious about creating a future together
as we are both students who are already in debt, we really have no way of affording plane tickets, so our separation is currently indefinite which is really miserable. we’re working to get jobs, but we both also have living expenses to take care of which will really slow us down in saving up. at the suggestion of several of our friends, we made a donate button from paypal so friends and followers who can and want to help us can do so. absolutely any amount is appreciated, literally 25 cents makes a huge difference—all we want is to be able to see each other during our winter break ♥
click here to donate, or visit the button on my blog. signal boosts are also hugely appreciated ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

I didn’t know I was lonely ‘til I saw your face.
Found this in a bathroom at my college. A lot of guys had eating disorders in football and wrestling at my school and even in the rec league. I remember guys taking laxatives before weigh ins even.
Male eating disorder awareness ~
Wrestling is infamous for that kind of shit. It’s one of the reasons my brother left the sport— his coaches were ENCOURAGING him to engage in unsafe behavior.
I’ve seen a lot of it the other way round, especially in rugby, I know several men who were encouraged to go to unsafe measures to gain weight.
Yes. ^^^ The masculinization of eating disorders. I knew some wrestling guys back in high school - it became this competition as to who could lose then keep of their weight the best. The guys would have competitions to see who could go the longest without eating, and if you lost, of course, you were a “pussy”
Thankfully a suspension went on while they reviewed these practices that were of course encouraged by the coaches.
