The choice is yours.
This is a shit ton of bullshit and shaming. People are born with health problems and perfectly healthy people develop health problems. There isn’t always a choice.
are your eyes red, itchy, and inflamed? don’t reach for those eyedrops, just grab a fucking red pepper and shove that into your eyes instead, just fucking jam all the vegetables you can into your eyes you fucking animal just do it
Inject V8 directly into your veins you miserable bag of trash. Get a giant syringe full of vegetable juice and stab right through your fucking arm in a wild attempt to cure your heart condition.
Wow, and here I could have saved all the time and discomfort of fucking brain surgery by eating a leek or something. WHO KNEW?!
Commentary. On. Point.
I honestly feel really bad for really sheltered kids and teenagers
and I’m not talking about like “oh my parents won’t let me go out to this dangerous place”
I’m talking “my parents won’t let me read Harry Potter or the Hunger Games” or “my parents won’t let me see rated R movies even though I’m 15-16 and the internet exists and there’s nothing I’m gonna see that I haven’t already seen” or “my parents won’t let me watch this sci fi show or Cosmos”
or like even now in college I’ve met people my age whose parents would apparently flip out if they got a facial piercing or a tattoo
like I can’t imagine that that’s healthy
my friend was a camp counselor this past week and she had this one girl whose mom had a sleeve tattoo dedicated to her children and was very nice and free spirited, and the positivity extended through her children
she also had this other girl who was very sheltered with a mother that was not nearly as positive, kind of eyed my friend’s tattoos a bit, and the child was a little more negative and would say things like “I hate that thing” or “my mother said we would hate that” even though she wouldn’t even know what the thing was
like man that’s not going to foster any kind of growth
