Raise your hand if you’re straddling the line between crippling anxiety and not giving any fucks about anything
“Take off the signatures, the false
bodies, this love
which does not fit you
This is not a house, there are no doors,
get out while it is
open, while you still can” — Margaret Atwood, “Hesitations outside the door,” from Power Politics (via lifeinpoetry)
“It’s disgusting. “I have a right to your naked body or images that you’ve sent to your husband, or lover.” It’s disgusting. It’s this violent, abusive violation of womanhood—of divine womanhood. It’s violent, and it’s misogynistic, and it’s revolting…..There’s a guy now taking these pictures and putting them up in an art gallery. What fucking right does he have to do that? It’s absolutely revolting.” — Andrew Garfield on the stolen private pictures of female celebrities (x)
Nothing is more soul crushing than thinking about the fact that the 9/11 search and rescue dogs were getting depressed when they couldn’t find any living people in the rubble. They thought that it was all their fault somehow and were getting sad. So other search and rescue workers had to hide in the rubble to give the doggies a “successful find” to keep their spirits up.
choking on water is the worst because how do you stop choking? drink something? well ive got some bad news for you
you mean a racist and rude woman who mocked people for their appearance, ethnicity, and sexuality, and who kept putting female colleagues down? no thanks. time magazine should be ashamed of themselves for even suggesting that this woman was a feminist icon.
Guyliner, in case the word eye is too feminine for you
yes im athletic. I drank gatorade once
But women can never be careful enough, can we? If we take naked pictures of ourselves, we’re asking for it. If someone can manage to hack into our accounts, we’re asking for it. If we’re not wearing anti-rape nail polish, we’re asking for it. If we don’t take self-defence classes, we’re asking for it. If we get drunk, we’re asking for it. If our skirts are too short, we’re asking for it. If we pass out at a party, we’re asking for it. If we are not hyper-vigilant every single fucking second of every single fucking day, we are asking for it. Even when we are hyper-vigilant, we’re still asking for it. The fact that we exist is asking for it.
This is what rape culture looks like.
This is what misogyny looks like.” — from What Happened to Jennifer Lawrence Was Sexual Assault (via bonibennett)
