"Did you say it? ‘I love you. I don’t ever want to live without you. You changed my life.’ Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; drink it in, ‘cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow." ~Meredith Grey
Who wants to take bets on how long it will take for me to tell my boss to fuck off tomorrow?
Of course the day I have an appointment with the vagina doctor, I would wake up without any water. FML.
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:
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 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
I always feel a little bit special when nikkidactyl likes my posts. ❤️
I have been cheated on. I have been cheated on more than once. I have also done my share of cheating. At some point, I grew out of that phase where you cheat on your partner. Maybe it was from all the pain and damage I received from being cheated on. The last two weeks all I have heard are stories of people I know and respect cheating on their wives, husbands, girlfriends, boyfriends, significant others etc. Quite frankly, I am sick of hearing about it. Something I have learned is that cheating doesn’t do anything but provide irreversible damage to the person who is being cheated on. I have lost something every time I found out my partner was cheating. I have lost things that I don’t know how to get back. Lately, I am believing that they can’t come back. Those things are locked away somewhere and the key is lost. Things like trust. I used to trust people until they gave me a reason not to. Not anymore. Today, to be a friend, lover, etc of mine you have to earn my trust. And don’t be surprised if I test you in one form or another. Is that right? Perhaps not. Is that healthy? Probably not. It is what it is though. If I knew how to shed myself of the damage and move on from it, I would in a second. It doesn’t make for the most attractive qualities, something else that has been made apparent. Cheating doesn’t do anything but make you a selfish asshole, and it makes your partner feel inadequate and not good enough. And they don’t just feel inadequate or not good enough with you, they feel that way about everyone in their lives. A feeling I might add, that takes a long time to go away, if at all. The damage I have from incidences of cheating is astounding. Plus, the trust never comes back in the same way. It never returns 100%. There will always be that tiny bit of doubt about what they are doing. There isn’t any excuse out there that makes cheating ok. If you are seeking out someone outside of your relationship then you need to move on from that relationship. Stop stringing someone along. If you want to be with someone else, then take the steps necessary to do so. Stop making them believe that they are the “only one out there for you.” If you commit to someone, make sure that means something. It shouldn’t be an “until” philosophy. That’s what is wrong in the world today. People get married with the comfort that they can get divorced if things don’t work out. What kind of logic is that? Who wants to enter into a marriage with that in the back of their minds? Not me. I have been called old fashioned this last week when my job drops open at the latest cheating story. Am i? Doesn’t anyone believe in commitment to their partners anymore? Does it make me old fashioned to expect my significant other not to cheat on me? Maybe it does. Maybe I feel that way because when I love someone, I love them with everything I am. When I have sex with someone, I give them everything I’ve got….every time. It’s not just something I do, it’s something I am. What say you? Thoughts? Opinions?
