Have you watched/heard about the Nash Grier video? If you have, I'm curious to see what you think about it

anxieusly answered:

The one where him and his friends talk about what they like in girls? I find absolutely nothing offensive about it considering it’s their personal preferences in girls. I’ve watched it several times and still don’t understand what is so offensive about it, honestly. Like, are guys not allowed to say that they’re attracted to girls who are outgoing or girls who don’t wear a ton of makeup? I just don’t understand why it was blown out of proportion. 

I agree with this so much. Everything is being deemed as racist or sexist nowadays and it’s really so idiotic.

You’re lonely and you’re trying to be a city
because cities never sleep and cities never cry

You’re lonely and you’re trying to be a forest because
they’re too busy with their rituals of rebirth to ever be sad

You’re lonely and you’re trying to be an ocean because an ocean doesn’t feel,
they’re all skin that swallows knives and turns arrows to dust

You’re lonely and you’re trying to be a planet
but planets aren’t supposed to sit at the window in a coffeeshop during rush hour, trying not to cry and blurt out how they’re feeling to the girl writing about birds in the seat next to them

You’re not a planet, so what planets are and aren’t supposed to do isn’t relevant in this case
The girl is kind, even when you break down crying like a sputtering vulcano in a D- science project
She gives you a smile and a leaflet and a pat on the back
That’s me, the leaflet, the one stuck between your fingers, that’s me, with the agressively-coloured block letters and the scary, scary words:

ARE YOU AFRAID OF A LITTLE MAGIC?

So tell me, are you?
Because I’ve got a trick up my sleeve,
but it won’t work if you’re scared

You are, I know you are, but you’ve been an unmelting glacier for so long
If you hold it together for a little longer, I’ll put you back in cold water, I promise you

So you’re lonely and you’re not a forestfire, or whatever it was that you were trying to be
A forest, you correct me, eternal rebirth, not destruction
Yes, yes, alright, you’re lonely and you’re not a forest
You’re lonely and you’re not afraid of a little magic
You’re lonely and you’re holding a leaflet and this is what it says:

Tell your bones it’s time to rest
If they won’t, bend them until they break
pick them up one by one as if you’re a kid that wants to keep every pebble on the shore
scatter them like fall leaves, sleep like winter

Tell your bones it’s time to wake up
Flowers bloom out of ashes in spring
You speak of rebirth and this is it:
your fragmented bones come back together underneath your skin

Explore the cavities in your chest as if you’re brave
Grow flowers, grow trees, set birds free, paint streams for fish to swim in and horses to drink from,
let there be light
This is your genesis, make it a story of realizing the garden of Eden is in yourself before you try to find it inside others

I worked, didn’t it?
It always works

You are a paradise now
but why do you sifle broken sobs in your pillow at night?

Oh, of course
They ate the apple, you had to send them away

They don’t even know that what they left, what they long for still, is gone now, do they?
It has withered away and you’re empty again, you’re lonely and you have no place to begin

maybe you were a forest, after all,
and a forest fire
You were everything all at once and it was fullfilling until it destroyed itself
But that’s not the worst of it, is it?

The worst is that it didn’t destroy you
You’re not a glacier anymore, but you’re still in cold water
Adam and Eve have moved out of your chest but you don’t know how to be without them
You are all alone and you have unleared to be lonely

I’m sure I know a leaflet that can help you do something about that

I am so sick of feminism on tumblr like the majority of y’all aren’t fighting for equity you’re fighting for DOMINANCE what’re you gna do, take over the men just like how you’re accusing them of having taken over you??? I’m a girl and I don’t support feminism and it’s not because I’m ‘subjugating myself or accepting my role as a lesser person’ no it’s because i don’t wanna be identified with you people who are giving feminism a bad name man why can’t we just accept that men and women are not equal were not created equal and never will be equal??? We serve different purposes and there’s no use you fighting against it because it’s the cold hard truth.

The friends you will call extensions
of yourself the day you graduate high
school may not be the first people
you call when you get engaged.

Not all kisses will be good ones.
Some will be wet and miss your
mouth by so much, you’ll start to
wonder if they’re looking for
something beyond you, something
your skin will never add up to.

The first time you go home with
a stranger, tell them they are
beautiful and spend the night
begging them to show you
more of their heart in between
your crescendos and releases.

When you leave in the morning
without saying goodbye, hope
they understand that it was
for their own good.

The people you love can be
untouchable and hard and mean
when they have been hurt, but
do not let that stop you from
breaking down their bathroom
doors and holding them together.
You will find that people often
insist that they are whole far
more when they are falling apart
inside of your arms.

It took me so long to learn that other
people are not limbs. You can hurt
for them when they break, but your
pain will not be one in the same with
their experience. Do not tell her you
“know how she feels”, tell her you
will be here when she needs to
release it.

Pain can be so great, but the
sky is always the most beautiful
after nasty storms, bent on
knocking down trees and keeping
homes in the dark.

Buy an umbrella.

Don’t let anyone tell you
that you do not already
have everything you will
ever need.

Anonymous asked:

Penises are for urinating and supplying sperm for reproduction, doesn't mean we urinate and fuck in public .. why should breast feeding be okay? fucking typical one sided feminist

sktagg23 answered:

Does your penis provide sustenance for another person? No. Can you show your nipples in public if you want to? Yes. Also, breasts are not genitals or sex organs. Only 13 out of 190 cultures world wide consider them to be sexual or even private parts. Don’t even act like this is a feminist thing. This is a babies-have-the-right-to-eat thing.

skiptheyouth:

I’ve seen more men urinating in public than I have women breast feeding, like are you fucking kidding me??!? Men take every excuse to expose themselves in public to make women uncomfortable.

We’re living in a predominantly western society where breasts are in fact seen as sexual organs. Why then are bras invented? Why do bikinis come in two pieces? It’s a fact that if you stimulate the breasts you get aroused, therefore they are sex organs. Hence, showing them in public would be crude. And anyway, aren’t there like baby rooms and stuff?? You can feed your kid there. You don’t HAVE to open up your shirt in the middle of everywhere. Please save all your ‘men like you are the reason we need feminism bs’ because I am a female and feminism has gotten out of hand. What happened to the fight for equity? Y’all seem to be striving for dominance now. Y’all are gonna raise the point that since I think women can’t show their boobs, men can’t show their chests either. Excuse me but do men grow bigger boobs at the onset of puberty? Do women get aroused at the sight of men’s chests? I highly doubt so. Men’s chests are not sexual organs but women’s are. The fact of the matter is that no matter how hard y’all try to say that man and woman are equal in every way, it will never be true. We are biologically and psychologically different and we both serve different functions. It’s time to start accepting that.
