sadweirdgirlnobodyreallylikes: I think you could fall in love with anyone if you saw the parts of them that no one else gets to see. Like if you followed them around invisibly for a day and you saw them crying in their bed at night or singing to themselves as they make a sandwich or even just walking along the street and even if they were really weird and had no friends at school, I think after...
You have nothing to feel ashamed of. I want you to know you didn’t do anything...– Writer-director Tyler Perry • In an open letter, published by The Daily Beast, to an 11-year-old alleged victim in the Jerry Sandusky case. “Do you know that at the young age of 11 you had more courage than all the adults who let you down?” he writes. “All of the ones who didn’t go to the proper...
it’s pretty shit when you try and enjoy a night out but have your ex boyfriend shouting ‘slut’ at you every time you walk past and condescendingly waving and smiling at you in order to aggravate you, but like, when you finally get to bed and receive a message from an attractive bearded male saying he’s outside your window waiting for a kiss, you sort of forget all that dumb...

I have a million things to do before work but instead I’m just ironing all of the clothes I might potentially want to wear in the next few days and eating a lot of lollipops because the whole thing is weirdly relaxing? ironing is fun apparently

thoughtfulexplosions: I cannot be bothered reblogging the post but this is in direct relation to the pro-porn vs. anti-porn discussion that is currently going around. I feel as though this discussion has come to light after the numerous articles with both positive and negative views in regards to the Sasha Grey reading to kids and her ‘feminist vs anti-feminist toilet bowl licking’ scene. I, for...
IT’S TOO HOT TO DO ANYTHING I bought two cheap tshirts today with the intention of cutting them into cropped tees and I just tried to do the first one and fucked it up completely and I’m all sweaty because it’s a million degrees and now I’m grumpy and flustered and mad at how completely unskilled I am at anything that involves even the smallest level of hand eye co...
emmaorwhatever asked: i am thrilled with that piece of writing! stunningly done and i absolutely agree with every single point you make.
Discussion: Pro-porn or anti-porn?
entropyforever: Pro-porn. However, I’m very much against how the porn industry currently functions. Meaning I am against the false notion that the only people who consume porn are white, hetero, cis-men, and as such the porn industry caters to that group. I’m pro alternative/queer/feminist porn because it displays a variety of people consensually engaging in sexual activities, and thus creating...
this is a bit of a long shot but there’s a piece by andrea dworkin where she essentially compares the degradation of women in porn to the degradation of black slaves and compares the way their oppression has been received. it’s not an essay, I am pretty sure it’s considered part of her fictional writing. it’s written very differently to her speeches and essays but...
I just ran barefoot down the street in my pyjamas, flailing my arms in the air trying to catch up with the home ice cream van. I now have a neat little box of twenty ice creams so it was all worth it

you know how sometimes somebody is a bit of a dick to you (ie stands you up) so you just act heaps nonchalant and stop texting them and take your sweet time writing back to their texts? yeah today I did that and wrote back to a text like an hour later turns out he was briefly in my suburb and if I wasn’t trying so hard to be cool we could have hung out so that is the first and last time...
