The thing is: when someone calls you too skinny, that hurts. It’s inappropriate, hurtful, and makes you self conscious. But at the end of the day, you pick up a magazine, you turn on the TV, you go on the internet on a gossip site - what do you see? Women who look like you. Women who have a body that recalls yours, women who are considered the standards of beauty to which all must follow to be considered beautiful. You go to a store, and odds are you can find clothes that are in your size. Odds are you don’t have go to stores dedicated to people your size, clothes that might not be as cute and are definitively more expensive.
When you’re fat, not only does it hurt, but society just confirms it day after day. You flip on TV, you read a magazine, and there are no women in your size. Nobody with a body like yours, nobody modeling clothes or being called gorgeous. You go to a store, and you can’t find clothes that fit you - and even if you do find things in larger sizes, they still don’t LOOK right, don’t fit right, cause they were designed for thinner girls in mind, and making these clothes in larger sizes doesn’t mean it’s going to look good on your body. You’re told you’re ugly by a piece of shit and basically the world you live in says back, well, yeah, that’s true.
That’s the difference. No, people making comments about your body are ALWAYS unwelcome and gross, but a thin person and fat person still live in the same society that caters and upholds thinness as a standard of beauty. That doesn’t change, and that’s why it’s not the same.

me: hey Hiccup, how do you feel after being shipped with basically any character ever?
Hiccup: very sore, thank you
in Jack I blame the smirk (add the puppy look) and in Hiccup the sarcasm in combination with being smart and cute (add the useless reptile lol)
the fact that dreamworks made their protagonists social dorks full of sarcasm and cuteness doesn’t help much xD
He developed from threatening Dwarves to protecting Dwarves.
He also stopped wearing eye liner.
Everyone is entitled to the emo phase
#legolas’ senses are not the only thing that is sensitive
This raises so many questions about the state and advancement of neurology as a science in Middle-Earth.
Although, to be fair, if anyone was going to discover the nervous system in Middle Earth, it would be dwarves fucking around with axes they’ve embedded in their enemy’s skulls.
I HAVEN’T SCREAM LAUGHED SINCE BILBO’S FUCKYOU OUTBURST
Middle Earth has no railings
Middle Earth needs no railings
Middle Earth laughs at your OSHA compliance and building safety regulations
Finally someone said it!

"What the fuck did I say"
Well congrats, Wendy! Not only did I draw Tolkien fan art for the first time in my life just for you, I also made it a comic! So happy (late) birthday! I had something fluffier in mind, but then I made a Lion King reference and laughed at myself for 500 years so I’m sorry if it’s not actually funny.
I have watched the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy just focusing on Legolas. And it is pure gold.
One of the greatest moments of the film because you can just see Bilbo’s utter resignation like, “Yeah, yeah, I’m dead. I’ll just kneel right here. Okay bye.”
on a scale of 1 to bilbo how bad a liar are you
For the first time, Legolas witnesses death, or what death does to the beings around him. He doesn’t understand that. It’s not part of his comprehension. He’s an elf; elves don’t die, they’re immortal, and so I wanted to try and portray in that moment this utter confusion and bewilderment at Gandalf not being with us, and where could he have gone? This is what death means.
