    Of course, I say your last phrase quite frequently. On this blog and to actual living people. Will try to curb it in yr presence, M.

    Be A Good Girl (I guess that’s a phrase)

    Use Your Head for Something Other Than A Hat Rack (okay, phrase again)

    Don’t Be A Pussy (That phrase sends me into a frenzy)

    I guess the language that most offends me is bad advice in the form of a put-down with a dash of sexism.

    Thinspo is awful. It’s all over Pinterest and Tumblr, too. Depressing.
