I think the real question is why should a girl shave, preen and diet herself into oblivion for a guy in sweatpants and a t shirt who hasn’t trimmed his pubes in 3 years
REALEST SHIT I’VE EVER HEARD
"Facing Race, Because…"
^^^^ How would you finish this sentence?
Facing race because it affects every aspect of your life, even if you turn away. Because not fighting racism, is condoning and perpetuating racism.
Because I am a black woman and no matter what, everything about my existence is based off of how “woman” and “desirable” I am to cishet men and how black women usually get the short end of their stick based off of how dark they are.
"because it’s a privilege not to" is why me and my fellow white people especially need to be facing race. We’re allowed to turn away from it when no one else can and that makes it all the important to make sure we don’t.
"My wife didn’t want to take maternity pictures, so I hired a photographer and took her place…" [x]
I. AM. CRYING.
the fucking door frame one…
I adore this man.
No he didn’t 😂
But I want to encourage you not to be TOO tough and too perfect. I want you to be open-hearted and unafraid of feeling what you feel, whether it’s sadness or anger. Having hope for the future, to me, depends on being open to the past in all of its ugliness. Letting in the ugliness will give you a richer appreciation of the present and the future. Building a rock solid marriage and a good relationship with your in-laws depends, in part, on not hiding or trying to be better than you are. I mean, you do have to try, around husbands and in-laws. But you also have to relax and own who you are, and allow yourself a little breathing room. It is truly a miracle, how shiny and new you can feel when you’re with someone who cares about you and supports you and doesn’t fucking disappear the second you get a little sniffly. But it’s also unnerving how forlorn you can feel when something small goes wrong—you don’t get enough sleep, you feel passive-aggressively insulted by your shiny new in-laws (hello, universal, shared rite of passage!), you don’t like the way your shiny new husband changes the subject when you try to talk about your crazy mother for more than a few minutes. It’s ok to admit that the past has a hold on you, that it bleeds into your future sometimes. By pointing this out, I’m not painting your future black. I’m telling you that the future will be richer if the past is included there.This week’s Ask Polly is about abusive mothers and it’s very, very beautiful (via christinefriar)
This existential 5-year-old wants time to stop. And who doesn’t relate to this at one time or another in their lives?
This is me every time I look at Harry Styles.
If you ever wanted to know what it was like to be around me when I’m super drunk, here you go.
