The new IOS8 update contains an app named Health which CANNOT BE DELETED.
The app allows you to choose which aspects of your health you choose to monitor, but available categories include “Body Measurements”, which includes body weight, and “Fitness”, which contains sections for calories consumed and calories burned.
While this may be useful for those looking to monitor their fitness, it could be triggering and harmful to those suffering with or in recovery from eating disorders, especially in sufferers with obsessive compulsive tendencies they find it very hard to abstain from, such as calorie counting, body measuring and weighing.
Whilst of course the app cannot force you to use it, it cannot be deleted, so will be present within your apps and can be a source of feelings of temptation to record numbers and of guilt and judgement for not using the app.
If you personally feel you could not emotionally handle the presence of this app, and it would be detrimental to your recovery, please do not download IOS8. I do not know if a new IOS can be avoided permanently (if anyone has any information on this please do add it to the post), but if it cannot then please use the time you have to prepare yourself for the app, and to reinforce reminders that you do not have to calorie count, you do not have to weigh yourself, you do not owe proof of exercise to anyone, person or app.
i suggest hiding the app with this method
Sir Philip Green (the man behind the Topshop empire) turned his attention to the plus size world, hosting the London Fashion Week’s first-ever plus-size fashion show for his brand Evans.
“This is a big and important part of the market and we need to be seen to embrace it,” Green said of the move. “You cannot ignore the market place. And you can’t be defensive about it, or apologize about [plus-size fashion]. Why should the category be any different from petite?”

"We can’t use A in our acronyms because it allows shitty allies to weasel themselves in!"
Perhaps if the lgbtqia community prioritized and cared more about ASEXUALS than about straight allies, we wouldn’t have this problem.
The A is not for allies. It has never been for allies. The A is for aces. Do not rob actual members of the lgbtqia community of the little representation we have for the sake of fucking straight people.
The A is fucking necessary.
how am I gonna be an optimist about this
#oh my god#I can’t handle this gifset#this hurts me on so many levels#she’s under an insane amount of pressure#she’s expected to be perfect#to do the impossible every single time#and unlike Fitz or Skye#she’s supposed to fix PEOPLE#not machines or computer code#when she fails the blood on her hands is very literal#and oh god I need to hug her now
#this is why she puts together a whole history for her undercover role#this is why she prepares for every contingency she can think of for every mission#this is why she takes every failure as a lesson and makes sure she doesn’t make the same mistake twice#because when she makes mistakes#when she misses something#when she’s not fast enough or smart enough or clever enough#people die#and Jemma Simmons refuses to let them#this woman gives me all the feels ok#ALL OF THEM

i finally get my tablet working and this is what i draw
ok but out of all my comics y does no one ever bring this one back
#ok but this hurts me #i know this tells us how (sometimes inappropriately) possessive fitz can be #but i think it all stems from the fact that he thinks he earned her friendship #spent months trying to talk to her #and years just being beside her so she can keep him as a friend #jemma’s friendship is the best thing he has ever worked for#that when someone new comes in and immediately builds rapport with her #he feels threatened #because maybe until now he still thinks it’s too good to be true #and maybe he still thinks he’s not worth keeping as a friend #and that she doesn’t really need him #maybe part of him is still that scared little boy who thinks jemma simmons is too good for him #maybe #hi i’m jess and i’m here to ruin everything (via ohfiitz)
#jemma was most likely fitz’s first real friend (or first friend at all) #and so he wants to hold onto her #and even after all these years he’s probably still afraid he’ll screw up and jemma will hate him or no longer find him interesting #if someone better and smarter comes along #and so he’s threatened by newcomers #especially if they prove themselves to be intelligent—and obviously trip does #and so yes he still believes jemma simmons is too good for him and he doesn’t deserve her #and he’s scared that jemma will realize that and leave him alone (via youremorethanthatjemma)
We live in a really weird era of feminism in which we’re not allowed to criticise any oppressive constructs/industries (marriage, beauty/make up, porn, etc) just because some women enjoy them.
I’m really sick of of opinions and discussions being shut down with “it’s not oppressive if we like it! Don’t you know that some women CHOOSE to do these things?”
Well, heck. don’t you know that men/the patriarchy have a lot to gain in keeping us content and complicit in our own oppression?
so this is my missing cat willow and i’m pretty ? worried but the humane society hasn’t seen her at all which would be concerning except they keep files on dead animals so i mean… i’m sad and everything but she’s bopping around in the neighbourhood probably
anyway so she’s somewhere in calgary ab (in the southeast particularly) so if you live around here it’d be cool if you could keep an eye out for her, and even if you don’t it’d be awesome if you reblogged this just to get the word out or w/e. she’s a blue/lilac point ragdoll and she’s pretty small and a little bit timid, she likes laser pointers and treats and all that sort of cat stuff
like a missing cat arguably isn’t the most urgent life threatening event out there but i’m pretty messed up over this whole deal so i mean. any and all help would be appreciated
