whos ready to challenge the idea that in order to be an artist u cant be a goofball or a powerhouse of positivity with me? whos ready to challenge the idea that art must come from a place of loneliness, desperation, sadness, etc or else be invalid? who the fuck is ready to get this party started 

To return to love, to get the love we always wanted but never had, to have the love we want but are not prepared to give, we seek romantic relationships. We believe these relationships, more than any other, will rescue and redeem us. True love does have the power to redeem but only if we are ready for redemption. Love saves us only if we want to be saved.

We are outraged when an Indian police officer tells a rape victim she should marry her attacker but not when a California judge says a woman wasn’t really raped because she didn’t put up enough of a fight. We are outraged at 24,000 rapes in India but not 188,380 in America.

Anonymous: Is fat a body shaming slur?? Or just rude?? But then is it rude bc nothing wrong with being fat and fat and beautiful not being mutually exclusive and stuff I don't know help


fat is not a bad word but it can easily be used to wound others  so heres a couple rules:

  • dont call someone fat in a derogatory or hateful way, even if theyre a shitty person 
  • dont call yourself fat when you feel ugly, ie “ugh i feel so fat today” and especially dont do it around a fat person
  • use the word fat neutrally or positively but
  • dont call someone fat if you dont know whether theyre comfortable with the word, even if you mean it in a good way, because it may drudge up bad memories or image problems

In only acting now that the security-camera footage is public, the NFL is setting a disgusting standard. It’s communicating to survivors — and the rest of us — that their testimony is not enough. Their broken bones are not enough. Guilty verdicts are not enough. Anything short of a public spectacle is not enough to make the league and the media sit up and say that assault and abuse are unacceptable. The tacit request is that survivors get comfortable with re-victimization if they want justice. The reaction to the “ELEVATOR KNOCKOUT” video doesn’t prove that the NFL is finally getting tough on domestic abusers. It just confirms survivors’ nagging suspicion that, without a viral video as evidence, it’s not really abuse. It’s just “an incident.”

You guys know about vampires? … You know, vampires have no reflections in a mirror? There’s this idea that monsters don’t have reflections in a mirror. And what I’ve always thought isn’t that monsters don’t have reflections in a mirror. It’s that if you want to make a human being into a monster, deny them, at the cultural level, any reflection of themselves. And growing up, I felt like a monster in some ways. I didn’t see myself reflected at all. I was like, “Yo, is something wrong with me? That the whole society seems to think that people like me don’t exist?” And part of what inspired me, was this deep desire that before I died, I would make a couple of mirrors. That I would make some mirrors so that kids like me might see themselves reflected back and might not feel so monstrous for it.
