"Girls are not machines that you put kindness coins into until sex falls out."
"i love lipstick. i want to write an essay about the politics of lipstick. i like lipstick that’s deep, deep red. i like lipstick that’s purple, lipstick that’s black and dark for when i want to dress up my melancholy. i like sharing lipstick with sisters. and i laugh at boys that think i wear lipstick for them to notice, i laugh, lipstick is an art you can’t ever understand. from picking out a color, testing it on the inside of my wrist, pursing my lips during the application of it. i like when i kiss a baby and leave lipstick on their cheek, when you hug someone and leave lipstick on their shirt, when it gets on your teeth and you use your tongue to get it off, when you sleep in lipstick and wake up with it on your pillow case. in 1997 mama left for ethiopia to see her mama for the first time in 12 years. i was six and i cried the entire way home from the airport. and when we came home there on the kitchen table was the teacup mama had been drinking out of. at the bottom a sip of tea and black cardamom seeds. and there on the rim of the cup the lipstick imprint of my mama’s kiss."
took such a good panty pic but i know i shouldn’t post it
:) why “shouldn’t” you? I…want to see more of that face b. fuck
successfully avoided giving my number out to this overly persistent guy at my job *sunglasses emoji*
Fucked up how…it’s like “I was able to pull something challenging,” instead of our society just expecting that a woman would state plainly her annoyance/discomfort.
You can indeed be sexist towards men. Pretending otherwise is dishonest.
Discrimination and systematic cultural oppression are not the same thing.
Ya, try ‘splaining that to an MRA though.
"If men’s kindnesses toward women were really only kindnesses, a man would be pleased if another man or woman offered these kindnesses to him. He would be pleased if another man or woman lit his cigarette or pulled out his chair for him. He would be pleased to derive his income, prestige, power and even his identity from his partner. He would take pride in another man’s or woman’s offer to walk him to his car at night. But in fact, “one of the very nasty things that can happen to a man is his being treated or seen as a woman, or womanlike."
I said it before. Cis hetero men dont demand other men smile. They dont give ‘compliments’ to other men like they do women. It is about dominance.
the pressure on first generation children of immigrants
to prove that you are indeed proof that parents’ sacrifice was worth it
is something that many Americans will never understand
Good to be informed.
