Nah, I don’t think so. Shaming people in a marathon isn’t productive.
Way to go you 50, Fat, Diabetic, Ahead of You Dickwad.
How is he shaming? He’s listing 3 facts about himself and a statement that is necessarily true depending on his position to the reader. Nothing shaming about it.
it’s kinda like the classic idea of “privilege”
rather than admiring this man and trying to be as awesome as he is (because seriously: fighting a chronic disease, advanced in years, out of shape, and running a marathon), self-centered people start thinking “he’s making me look bad”
and their solution to that is to try to drag him down to their level, if not lower
and so he is relegated the ranking of “dickwad”
when, in actual, real life, where living, breathing people interact, a lot of people probably found this humorous, or inspiring, or were even motivated to try to pass him
like honestly, if you’re the type to shrivel up and feel bad about yourself when you see this t-shirt, you probably aren’t the type to run a marathon anyway
i can only handle so much social interaction every day before i start getting grumpy and pissed off and it really bothers me when people don’t understand that i just genuinely need some alone time sometimes
Sometimes you need to remind yourself that you were the one who carried you through the heartache. You are the one who sits with the cold body on the shower floor, and picks it up. You are the one who feeds it, who clothes it, who tucks it into bed, and you should be proud of that. Having the strength to take care of yourself when everyone around you is trying to bleed you dry, that is the strongest thing in the universe.
I was in the shower shaving for like… 45 minutes, and I STILL had to forgo shaving one of my legs because I was concerned I was running late for lunch (it turns out I wasn’t, but whatever).
I also ruined my razor, because I didn’t think to trim any of my hair first, but that’s okay.
Also look at all that fucking hair. There’s so much of it. I had no idea I had that much hair on me.
Tomorrow I will shave my left leg and run clean-up on basically everywhere else (it’s pretty patchy).
Aren’t you supposed to grow a mustache? what the fuck is full shave november.
The opposite of No Shave November. Lots of women get flak for participating in No Shave November and letting their body hair grow out (I can’t find the post with a bunch of screencapped tweets about it, but this is the next best thing), but the vast majority of guys (myself included) have absolutely no idea what a pain feeling like you have to shave your body hair is like. So, for the entirety of the month, I will be shaving my legs, chest, and armpits on a regular basis (as well as my usual regimen of shaving my face).
