i would laugh at the fragility of the male ego

but then i remember that women are assaulted and killed for threatening it


"you’re too young to know what your sexuality is" said the straight person to a queer teenager 

"he’s such a ladies’ man" said the straight person about a 6 month old baby that doesn’t know what a lady is


I’m actually concerned for boys who complain about how different girls look without makeup. Like did you think eyeshadow permanently alters a girls eyelid? Are you frightened when people change clothes


Real men don’t hit women
The millions of women and their pain
Must be figments
Of over active imaginations
Because real men
Don’t hit women

"BUT WHAT ABOUT THE MEN?!" - Is Feminism Sexist? (x)

"When men say that they “love to see the woman underneath the makeup,” they’re not saying they want to see your leg stubble and greasy bangs—they’re saying they want you to be better at hiding your maintenance routine. Because the maintenance spoils the fantasy."
Lindy West (via lavenderlabia)
"When you look around at the six people that you spend the most time with, that’s who you are. I think that in making those decisions in who you are going to be married to, who your friends are going to be, those are really huge, critical, life decisions. Who gets to talk to you everyday, is almost like the food that you eat. It is a very huge critical situation to choose who the people are that you are spending your life with, spending your time with and who you are choosing to give your love and everything to."
Will Smith (via beautiful-ambition)

So about a week ago, I went for my annual gyno appointment and my doctor and I discussed potentially switching my birth control. I’ve been on the pill for years and have had no qualms, but I’d love to have something long-term that I won’t take daily. I really, really want to switch to an IUD, particularly Mirena. I love the idea of being free from pregnancy worries for the time being, and by the time it’s ready to come out in 5 years, Chris and I will probably be planning to have a baby anyway!  The only thing holding me back is that my family has been insisting that IUD’s cause infertility and will essentially tear my poor uterus to pieces. Seriously, my mom gave the ‘ol “don’t get one if you want children!” rant. I knowwwwww this isn’t true but I’d love to hear from anyone who’s had positive experiences with IUD’s!
