It’s 1am so I’m sorry for the people who won’t see this. But if you want confidence and don’t know how to get it, a really good way is to be confident in other people. When you walk into Starbucks, think, “damn, that barista’s hair is da bomb!” Or when you go to school, think, “my teacher is rocking that skirt!” When you start seeing everyone as being beautiful, at some point you realize that you’re everyone too.

“Peaches has died. We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of us all. Writing ‘was’ destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever. How sad that sentence is.”

Vincent Van Gogh used to eat yellow paint because he thought it would get the happiness inside him. Many people thought he was mad and stupid for doing so because the paint was toxic, never mind that it was obvious that eating paint couldn’t possibly have any direct correlation to one’s happiness, but I never saw that. If you were so unhappy that even the maddest ideas could possibly work, like painting the walls of your internal organs yellow, then you are going to do it. It’s really no different than falling in love or taking drugs. There is a greater risk of getting your heart broken or overdosing, but people still do it everyday because there was always that chance it could make things better. Everyone has their yellow paint.

why are you a feminist???

scorsece answered:

because people are still asking that question

because women are payed less than men in approximately 99% of professions

because chris brown can still have a career after assaulting rihanna but miley cyrus takes her clothes off and there’s a huge scandal

because of this:

image

because currently it is estimated ten million more girls are out of education than boys (x)

because we’re expected to be mature but hairless like a child, in control but not bossy, sexy but not slutty and definitely not a prude, intelligent but not opinionated, independent but reliant on men, natural but look like the girl in the magazine etc etc

because being called a girl, a pussy or a bitch is an insult

because when i told my mum i refused to get anything less than a’s in my exams she told me it wasn’t ladylike to be so cocky

because my brother and 90% of my male friends think girls who wear revealing clothing are asking for rape

because every person who identifies as female should be allowed to choose if they want to get married, have kids, have a career, go to uni etc etc without expectations

because tampons and sanitary pads are stupidly expensive

because some people reading this will have flinched at the fact i just said ‘tampon’

because there are men out there whose job it is to make young girls feel like absolute shit about themselves just so they can sell the next best beauty product

because female masturbation isn’t considered normal whilst men can talk about their own penises for hours on end

beCAUSE OF ARTICLES LIKE THIS

because feminists are still seen as crazy lesbians who dont shave and some still feel like they have to defend themselves by claiming theyre not any of those things when in fact if i want to be a passionate lady who likes other ladies and cant be bothered to shave my legs every twenty minutes then thats my choice and if i want to be someone who wears make up and shaves and goes out partying then thats my choice and if i want to be a combination of the two or anything in between then thats. my. choice.

because i believe anyone who identifies as female is fucking badass and deserves the same rights as every privileged stuck up old white man sitting around and making laws about our bodies

because how can you not be

This is amazing😍😍 all them clothes that men supposedly hate makes me so angry it’s seems there will be nothing left to wear

hey so at school my friends keep on going on about that photo of a woman with a skirt on and on her legs it say 'slut' 'asking for it' 'old fashioned' etc. every time we go to a party. I am a feminist and I strongly believe in woman's rights, but I don't know what to say to them to argue back? Have you got any good points?

mensamque answered:

I’m going to give you a rant and you can pick out what you want from it to say to them :) okay so women should be able to wear what ever they want, it’s due to people’s ignorance and closed minds that people label women who reveal more flesh as ‘sluts’ and even sometimes ‘asking for it’. This is disgusting to think that people genuinely thing women are asking for rape or sexual abuse, why should the clothes women wear (or don’t wear) show that she wants to go through pain and be forced for sex?! Even if a women stood stark naked in the streets she isn’t ‘asking for it’. Sex is also called ‘making love’ and however lame you think I sound, you should make love with the person you love! Rape is forcing a woman to ‘make love’ which is despicable and the fact it is as common as it is disgusts me. FFS I ALWAYS GO SO OFF TOPIC IM SORRY but yeah basically clothes don’t define anyone, people can’t be judged by what they wear. A women’s wearing a tiny skirt may be a virgin and a women’s covered head to toe could be very sexually active. CLOTHES DONT DEFINE PEOPLE. X

Here is the video proof of my previous post about this officer forcing his way into my moms house (without legal documentation) and arresting my brothers friend without explanation. PLEASE REBLOG TO RAISE AWARENESS!!

I’m honestly appalled at this and I’m sorry this happened. Something similar happened to my dad’s friend (I watched this happen to my dad’s friend) so I can imagine how scary this must have been.

this just made me nauseous. all jokes aside.

I saw this via Facebook the other night & my heart broke to hear a black man begging an officer of the law not to be shot. && please don’t hit me with that he was resisting bullshit because he asked several times, why he was being bothered, why he was being placed under arrest

PASS THIS AROUND

I’m disgusted by this officer.

Police officers no longer make me feel safe. Fucking, assholes.

why i stay strapped

ACAB. Only good cop is a dead one. Just look at Christopher Jordan Dorner. Prime example of a good cop and look where he’s at.

This is disgraceful
