“It is disgusting. We are told to love sex but never masturbate or fool around. To love our bodies but we have to be hairless, thin, have boobs, and to never wear make up to cover our flaws. We can like sports and watch them but we can’t play them unless they are toned down and pretty enough to be oggled at. We can be nerds but we can’t be TOO smart or we forget our place. We are told we need a prince charming and to seek him out by constantly changing ourselves and being perfect for him. We are given the message that outside beauty is what matters the most but if we have it and get successful it was because we have a pretty face. We are told we exaggerate and should just go with it when we complain of being objects and property. We are taught that being a woman is worthy of an insult… WE have to fear walking at night. WE have to go in a group if we need to use the bathroom in a strange place. WE have to be cautious of where we are and who we are with. That we are told to hush and get over it if we are assaulted because real life isn’t like the crime shows and it is harder to convict the assaulter. That female artists are degraded and yelled at in artist alleys. That you are judged just by how you wear a t-shirt.”—plucifer [marchen] (via srry-if-thts-twee)

Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don’t want to know about you. They don’t want to hear from you. No nothing. No neonatal care, no day care, no head start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you’re pre-born, you’re fine; if you’re preschool, you’re fucked.”—George Carlin (via cosmicdragon)
My cat Spooky is in the hospital and might die. They think he is having liver failure and are currently giving him a blood transfusion to keep him alive. To give him the treatments he needs, we need to raise $800. I’m desperate to save my cat and will be taking donations and…
Volleyball is a very aggressive sport. I’m super pumped to kick some major ass tomorrow and show every damn person out there whose called it a “slacker sport” or “dumb” what i’m made of. Belittling my sport won’t make yours any better. Building your sports credibility shouldn’t be proven by demolishing something i truly love and work hard at. So while you’re sitting on your pompous ass railing my sport for pathetic reasons, i’m only laughing at your small mindedness.
