Name's Holly. Majoring in Music Education at the University of Illinois. I play trumpet. Initially another site to promote my art and get little insights into my daily life, this tumblr is now reblogging a lot of Supernatural, Sherlock, Benedict Cumberbatch, Doctor Who, various fictional characters, and other weird, random stuff that strikes my fancy. I may or may not be a vlogger. In any case, this blog is loads of fun and AWESOME of course. ;)
Enjoy your stay.

Never date anyone who can’t sit through a marathon of the LOTR extended editions u don’t need that kind of weakness in ur life

I’ve noticed a funny thing about Melissa McCarthy. Well, besides the obvious, that she’s funny. But I’ve noticed that when Jennifer Lawrence talks about her weight, she talks about how much food she eats, and how she’s never going to diet to be thin. And when Melissa McCarthy is quoted about her weight, this is what she says:

“I don’t really know why I’m not thinner than I am.”

“I want to be healthy.”

“I just don’t lose weight easily.”

“Sometimes I wish I were just magically a size 6 and I never had to give it a single thought.”

Because Melissa McCarthy actually is a fat woman, she isn’t allowed to make brash statements about body acceptance. She has to apologize for her body. Every single one of those quotes might as well have just said, “Sorry I’m fat and you have to look at me, everyone.” But it’s all she’s allowed to say, in the confines of our culture. If Melissa McCarthy had said, “If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet,’ I’m like, ‘You can go f– yourself,” the response will most assuredly not be, “How brave! How strong! What a good role model!” The response will be, “What a bad example, encouraging people to be unhealthy! We have an obesity epidemic! Open your eyes, fat is not healthy, sexy, or acceptable! How very dare she!”
