Proving myself, one challenge at a time

you shouldn’t take nudes because they will be leaked
and you will be to blame

you shouldn’t own a car because it’ll get stolen and it’ll be your fault
you shouldn’t swim, you’ll drown
you shouldn’t eat, you’ll choke
you shouldn’t have an epi-pen because if you have an allergic reaction, isn’t it sort of your fault? you put yourself in that situation
you shouldn’t exist as a woman because your body always takes the blame
your rape is your fault
your nonconsensual sexualization is your fault
being murdered by your spouse is your fault
being murdered by your parents as an infant is your fault
because you put yourself in that situation by being born female
your anatomy and identity are a dare
a challenge
a curse
a temptation
your womanhood is a dangerous alley late at night
your womanhood is too many drinks at frat party
your womanhood is a skimpy dress, a lack of mace, going to the bathroom without a friend
your womanhood is a constant state of uneasiness
your womanhood is a fucking statistic
your womanhood is a news story

you should not take nudes because they will be leaked
and no one will feel bad

why you shouldn’t take nudes, f-licitie (via f-licitie)

When we are girls,
they hand us dolls and say
“Be like this.”
Pretty.
Pliable.
Silent.
We grow up holding glassy eyed fantasies
Taught early on that we will never be as perfect as what we are asked to be.

When we are no longer girls,
but not yet women,
they hand us razors and say
“Run these across your skin.”
We learn that our bodies are intrinsically wrong
And when we tear ourselves open trying to scrape away the inadequacy they’ve forced on us
They act shocked.

When we are women,
they hand us shame and say
“Here. This is yours to carry.”
So we drape it around our necks
like a scarf
And the furious proclamations that rise in our throats
stay trapped just below our tongues.

But I am not made of porcelain.
Take your dolls back.
I am not yours to shatter.
I will take the razors that they handed me and use them
to tear the shame from my neck
because I’ll be damned if
“woman”
and “shame”
are synonyms.

I will be part of the generation that hands my girls
steel.
And says,
“Be like this.”
Strong.
Immovable.
Shining.
They will grow up seeing that they do not have to bend,
that if someone tries to break them they will not do so silently.
The generation that teaches our girls
that they were made to withstand storms,
and that they are no one’s to hold.

not of porcelain, but of steel - A.S (via narcol-ptic)

some of the most sensitive areas of the female body

look at all the regions that are not titties and vagina guys
porn has lied to you. there are other places you can touch that sensitive and pleasurable. 

i thought it was a rash

caress my eyes. lick the bottom of my stylish bob haircut

Wow fuckers, this is patriarchy at its finest. Instead of taking note that you can bring pleasure to a woman without touching her “private” bits you instead make jokes and make this important information a joke. SHAME ON YOU. This is made to HELP you PLEASE a woman because, Im going to go ahead and assume here, either you are too immature to think that pleasing a woman is a worthwile thing to do or are to immature to even think about having sex. You are NOT entitled to a woman and her vagina or tits just because you are a man, and actually, anatomically, you will find yourself uncomfortably uninvited by her vagina unless you are able to please and stimulate her emotionally and physically without penetration. Facts. A “tight” vagina is NOT a willing vagina. Fact. So either grow up and take note and grow as a person OR dont grow up but dont belittle women and their pleasure spots. Thanks.

Over the weekend you may have heard of or seen - nude photos of celebrities were stolen off of their phones and posted online. It’s a terrible invasion of privacy, but probably the most disconcerting part of this for me is that some people are blaming the celebrities for having the nude photos on their phones in the first place.

white boys just don’t learn there lessons

They’re gonna get shot one of these days…

And watch someone is going to say how “animalistic or ghetto” these men are. For one these dicks started this off by saying it’s the hood. JUST BECAUSE BLACK LIVE THERE DOES NOT MAKE IT THE HOOD!!! And for two these men behaved like this because this wasn’t an accident this was assault! You don’t invade someone’s space vandalize their property and think nothing will happen to you. White people can’t keep terrorizing black people for “comedy” that some weak link ass shit.

This guy is such a dick. Check out his other vids, he likes getting fucked up.

I want an episode of Supernatural where some teenagers are walking through an abandoned factory and suddenly one of then starts walking like a dinosaur and the other kids are like ‘wtf are you doing steve’ and he’s like ‘I saw this post on Tumblr saying if you feel like you’re in the first five minutes of a ghost show then you should walk like a dinosaur, because no one would do that on the show.’ and as soon as he finishes a ghost beheads him.
