nathanhimmerich said: youre sad about the women “opressing” themselves by wearing sexy things, i imagine? guess who is unhappy. its you and other feminists, NOT the “oppressed” women out there having fun. whats sad is that men dont also get sexy, its not appropriate.
I usually don’t respond like this, but seriously, what are you talking about? I have never said anything to that effect. I seriously have no idea what point you’re trying to make and you’re putting words in my mouth to make it. What the actual fuck.
“[W]e’re not really equal when we’re STILL supposed to uncritically and obediently cheer when white women are praised for winning “women’s rights,” and to painfully forget the Indigenous women and women of colour who were hurt in that same process. We are not equal when in the name of “feminism” so-called “women’s only” spaces are created and get to police and regulate who is and isn’t a woman based ontheir interpretation of your body parts and gender presentation, and not your own. We are not equal when initatives to support gender equality have reverted yet again to “saving” people and making decisions for them, rather than supporting their right to self-determination, whether it’s engaging in sex work or wearing a niqab. So when feminism itself has become it’s own form of oppression, what do we have to say about it?

hey I need some advice, I don't know who to ask, please don't be creeped out that I'm asking you but I don't know where else to turn. My whole life I've liked guys, but recently I met this girl and we've been hanging out, and the more we do the more I want to be with her, in a relationship, and I just think about her constantly and I think she's so amazing! But this whole thing is confusing me. And I don't know what any of it means?
You don’t have to know what it means. If you only like guys your whole life, thats fine. If you only like guys and then fall madly in love with one girl and then never date another girl again, thats fine. If you’re a girl and you never, ever fall for a boy that’s fine. Just allow yourself to love, whoever is around to be loved. There are infinite combinations of people and love and it’s all valid. It’s hard not to be confused because society is very confining, but love can be a direct affront to society and what it wants and expects from us.
Moral of the story, if you want her and she wants you then you should go for it.

I never expected you to love me The way I loved you To have you near Was all I wanted Just to have you near It’s funny how you can forget there’s a world outside yourself Where the trees keep growing and the cars keep moving Without you there And it’s funny how you can forget there’s a world outside yourself Where the one who loves you keeps on living Without you there
“I put my hand on him. Touching him has always been important to me, it was something I lived for. I never could explain why. Little, nothing touches, my fingers against his shoulder, the outsides of our thighs touching as we squeeled together on the bus. I couldnt explain it, but I needed it. Sometimes I imagined stiching all of our little touches together. How many hundreds of thousands of fingers brushing against each other does it take to make love?”—(via ninguemmeconvidou)
