Have you heard of Ban Bossy? It’s the new initiative from Lean In and the Girl Scouts that’s trying to ban “bossy” and similar words that are used to bring down girls that are ambitious, take risks, and speak up. By changing the way we treat girls who lead, hopefully our generation will someday see more women in leadership roles.
don’t read the youtube comments on this.
"don’t read the youtube comments" is a solid life pro tip for the ages
I want my makeup to communicate to you that you are never to speak to me unless I give you permission
intimidating femme life
Better to be a lion for one day than to be a sheep your whole life
Whos fucking logic is that?????! I love sheep!!! I would give anything to spend my eternity as a sheep roaming the hills of the highlands. If that doesn’t sound like a balling ass life then we have completely seperate opinions on joy.
So it looks like i finally got in my first fight with my boyfriend. And weve only been dating for over a year.
It really wasnt that bad
We were both expecting worse cause we both were scared the other lost interest.
One of those lovely dilemmas were both people feel unwanted and both are too insecure to reach out
But we talked it out and i feel like its better
I cant believe i made him so upset
Hes always so level headed
But at the same time it was nice to see he cares so much
Cause its not so easy to tell with him.
I hate the way people get swept up in life when living together. So much shit to do and so much shit happens we forget to be intimate with each other. The love never dies but without intimacy how can you even know its there?
Its strange how often people forget the importance of intimacy.
Of hugging each other for no reason.
Or looking someone in the eyes when you say i love you
I need to stop letting the world get in the way of me being me, and expressing myself to the fullest.
I really wish i could redo my childhood
I have so many regrets and i wish i used my time better
I wished i used my intelligence more.
I wish someone told me about life
About all the problems and nasty stuff that id go through
I wish someone told me not to sleep with someone just because they love you
But to sleep with someone who knows how you should be loved
I wish someone taught me how to stand upto harassment, no matter who its from.
We’re so often taught that we should never argue with your elders.
But no one taught me what you should argue for, what you should stand up for. When you should speak up against rasism and sexism, even if its coming from your own grandparents, or your own father.
I wish someone taught me how important it was to love myself.
I wish i had parents that thought it would be important to talk to me about these things
So many people ignore the ugly, they let their child walk blindly into the dark without any caution, because the conversation is an unpleasant one.
I wish my parents taught me that even they could be wrong and that i should always listen to what i feel is right.
I wish someone taught me how to grow. Instead of falling so many times needlessly in the dark, causing wounds that haven’t all yet healed.
i just got lectured by my father cause he heard i wanted to quit my job. and he harassed me because i have hated every job I’ve had besides KRF. And i love my KRF bosses, i absolutely adore my boss selling roses. she’s an amazing woman and i idolize her so much. but she treats me with respect, and i have rarely gotten that from other employers. almost all work conditions are absurd and they ask way too much of their workers for a tiny compensation. As a young woman almost all i receive from people is disrespect. Older women look at me like a dumb kid, and always assume i know nothing about the world and have no wisdom. When they see me in clothing i wear to express my body they think i am a slut. Men are always harassing me. Some think i am dumb because of my age and some think i am dumb because i am a woman. All of them harass me sexually. I literally can’t go any where unless i am out in sweats with no make up on, and even then sometimes i do get harasses sexually. sometimes they even have the audacity to get insulted that i go out looking that way. Men of every size and age sexually harass me. And i have to be scared of every last one of them, because i know in a lawless society, or in a perfect environment, majority of them would probably rape me, maybe some even kill me. So I’m sorry if you think i am being immature when i won’t keep a job that treats me like i am a robot, and cares more about not offending the customers than not offending me. Im sorry that in a society where i can’t do anything without being disrespected. in a society where i am completely petrified of school because of the disrespect i have received, which is the reason i now lack a poor education. and i can see that. but no matter what i do i will always be petrified of school because of the overwhelming amount of disrespect i receive when I’m making myself most vulnerable. the one place that should help women learn they can be smarter than boys and they should be proud and revel in their intelligence. so no, i will not put up with that, and I’m not ok with that, and they could never pay me enough to be ok with that.
"you need to go listen to arethra franklin and learn about some RESPECT" -my response to him
i just read something really gross and mean that one of my friends commented on Facebook and it made me so upset. it was so malicious and uncalled for, why would you just attack someone like that? especially if they use to be your friend? like i hate some old friends i have but i don’t blatantly insult them.
uh why do people do this?
im drawing a picture of moony looking at the full moon with tears falling from his face.
WHY DID I THINK IT WAS A GOOD IDEA TO DO THIS TO MYSELF? I’m really not enjoying drawing the eyes. i think its time to switch to my drawing of hagrid and his gritters
houses + elements
Wow this really accurately describes me as a hufflepuff. I do like griffindor and love adventures and danger but i feel like i would still be hufflepuff because my brain is a potato. And i mean look at cedric. Hes probably my favorite character thats a student. Why did that actor have to go do twilight???! I had such a crush on him before he made himself a douche.
But cedric is awesome
And i am definitely earth so i guess that means hufflepuff for me
Oh look potatoes!
