Appropriate that this is the first thing I read this morning:
“Some men know all the right words to say to a woman. Unfortunately they say them to every woman they meet.”
Robert Sapolsky about his study of the Keekorok baboon troop from National Geographic’s Stress: Portrait of a Killer.
Tall, skinny, scruffy, eccentric, intelligent, sweet.
that’s the joke
freedom of speech means that the government is not allowed to tell you to shut the fuck up. it doesn’t mean that i am not allowed to tell you to shut the fuck up.
It is illegal for women to go topless in most cities, yet you can buy a magazine of a woman without her top on at any 7-11 store. So, you can sell breasts, but you cannot wear breasts, in America.
This is one of my favorite quotes about sexualization/objectification vs autonomy of female bodies bc it’s so succinct(via kaepop)

there’s a group of men on the tv answering a survey about “how much they really know about women” and they asked “which percentage of women do not orgasm from intercourse alone” and they all answered 15 when the real answer was 75 and their faces were just abysmal it gave me life
i love it when teenage boys make edgy jokes and theyre just laughing but ur not laughing. they say shit like “oh come on it was funny”. you still arent laughing. you can see their soul shrivelling before you, you can see the fear in their eyes
it is our civic duty to help boys realize that theyre not funny and they need to shut up
If you’re feeling small today I dare you to sit up straighter, look someone who scares you directly in the eye, take up room at the dinner table, make yourself bigger, when ‘sorry’ laps at the back of your tongue, tries to pick up after you, remind yourself that your existence doesn’t demand an apology, that you are allowed to make mess and take up space. Do not be afraid to expand. Every single goddamn minute. Expand, expand, expand.
