Um, health and fitness are very much social justice issues. The fitness community is filled to the brim with racism, misogyny, body shaming, homophobia, transphobia and classism. If you want to get away from "justice shit," then focusing on the type of control that people are allowed to exhibit over their own bodies probably isn't the way to do it.

Health & fitness probably are social justice issues but I don’t see a SJ aspect of it on my dash. What I see are ppl kicking ass in the gym & eating delicious & healthy foods. I don’t see a problem with focusing on that either.

If your tumblr shows support for causes other than healthy eating & fitness I’m probably going to unfollow you. No big deal, but my dash used to never have all the justice shit on it and now that’s all it’s become & I never wanted that.

I watch movies that make me think about what I do and what I don’t and the intricacies of other people.

Roadside Laser Could Remotely Detect Drivers’ Alcohol Breath

It’s a bad idea to drink and drive.
No rocket science there. But with the goal of reducing drunken driving, researchers have gone high-tech, creating a laser device that can detect alcohol vapor within a moving car, from alongside the road.
So if you ever face social pressure to drink and drive, just glance off into the middle distance and say, “I would, but for the lasers. The lasers, man.”

Learn how the laser spots drunk drivers from a distance.
