Anonymous asked: I have a good relationship with my body. I've never really had any issues with it. I'm aware of its imperfections of course (mainly the tummy I have & a bit of fat and cellulite on my upper thighs) but I don't hate myself or anything. It's my fault anyway, for being such a sweet tooth. :) I like looking at my body.

acktor replied to your post: you understood me! I wonder if there is a reliable metric for measuring the pleasure/satisfaction from an orgasm. lots of petty couple fights would be ended by that, I’d imagine. “nope, you did conclusively enjoy that more than me. hmmm.” We should invent that along with the metric for measuring Happiness for that Utilitarian utopia-nightmare!

Anonymous asked: Crohn's Disease has taken me to the edge of sanity. The depression makes everyone else's smiles and un-suffering unbearable. I would probably kill myself if I didn't have loved ones making the minutes without flare ups worth every day spent in agony.
Anonymous asked: my self-made scars are the nicest part of me.
Anonymous asked: Some days I hate it. Some days I'm neutral. Some days I really like it. I'm not skinny. I hate hate the number I see on the scales but I really love my shape. I really appreciate how I look both naked and in clothes. I've always had issues with my body as a kid but since year 10 I just don't care. I eat what I like. I exercise when I want to. I've been the same shape for 3...
iezebel asked: It's first now, pushing 30, I truly feel in touch with my own body. I'm not particulary satisfied with the way it looks and it doesn't work half of the time. But even so; I love it. I wish I had this calmness when I was younger.
Anonymous asked: I have issues with parts of my body, much like anyone else. But I recognise that I am generally pretty lucky with my appearance, and that my pros outweigh my cons. I got offered corrective surgery for one of my main hates when I was younger, (my ears) and I turned it down on the basis that if I have kids and they don't fit with society's idea of beautiful or even normal, how can I tell...
acktor asked: I generally don't like to see myself naked, as I find male genitalia really unseemly, but I still consider myself an attractive person. I've seen a few people who look lovely (or even stunning) when clothed and it seems to fall apart when they're naked. That said, my own nakedness is the only one that I actively do not wish to see, at least of the people I find otherwise attractive....
Anonymous asked: I used to starve myself. I used to loathe my body. I used to be teased for being fat, ugly, etc. as a child. However, since then, I have learned that beauty is health and health is beauty; the two are utterly reciprocal. I am now happy, healthy, and in love with my figure. Healthy, happy women are all creatures of beauty, no matter their shape or size. <3

Please, if you feel so inclined! Anon is on and besides, I hope you will trust me to respond to whatever you say without judgment or condescension or harshness. In fact, I don’t think I’ll respond to it at all in any way except with a general expression of gratitude. This is just for something I’ve been writing. Thank you!
Extinguish my eyes, I’ll go on seeing you. Seal my ears, I’ll go on hearing you. And without feet I can make my way to you, without a mouth I can swear your name. Break off my arms, I’ll take hold of you with my heart as with a hand. Stop my heart, and my brain will start to beat. And if you consume my brain with fire, I’ll feel you burn in every drop of my blood. Rainer Maria Rilke...
“I’m a collection of organic molecules called Carl Sagan. You’re a collection of almost identical molecules with a different collective label. But… is that all? Is there nothing in here but molecules? Some people find that idea demeaning to human dignity. But for myself, I find it elevating and exhilarating to discover that we live in a universe which permits the evolution of molecular machines...

The Problem of Human Meaning.
Trout’s favorite formula was to describe a perfectly hideous society, not unlike his own, and then, toward the end, to suggest ways in which it could be improved. He hypothecated an America in which almost all of the work was done by machines, and the only people could get work had three or more Ph.Ds. There was a serious overpopulation problem, too. All serious diseases had been conquered. So...
