One was Vicki*, now 30, from Cardiff, Wales. When she got up to go to the restroom during her 21st birthday celebration — which, naturally, included cake — she didn’t expect to leave the party in tears. “Some 50-year-old jock who was standing at the bar smacked me on the side of my hip and said, ‘Looks like someone’s had too much cake already,’” she told me. “I went into the bathroom and cried. [It] ruined my entire birthday.”

Public Food-Shaming Is The Insidious Type Of Street Harassment No One Is Talking About

food shaming is so so common, especially for women and people being read as female. as shameful as it is, we need to talk about it, because seeing that it happens to other people can help us feel less ashamed and more empowered about it at as a social injustice.

#sansa stark is the smartest player in the game #look at how well she manipulates Joffrey #and to think people call her stupid #lol at them #they have no idea sansa is going to come out on top #standing on a pile of her enemies #with a crown on her head

I think Sansa is clever, but I think that what is important about Sansa more than that she is clever or that she will “come out on top” or end up powerful (she may or may not come out on top or end up in power!) is that Sansa Stark is kind, and she remains kind despite all the things that have happened to her. I think when people defend Sansa from h8rs they often try to point out things about her that are valuable to her but ultimately not really accomplishments? She learns to be clever and manipulative because she has to. She is kind out of choice, and persistently kind in the face of overwhelming cruelty, and that is why I love Sansa.
