I'm giving myself this day to mope, to sleep, to...
Tomorrow, I get up, and I continue. I can’t fight against the feelings all the time. I have to lie down, be in my underwear, ignore my texts, and feel like the world sucks. Tomorrow, I’ll find my fight again. I’ll make myself into a role model again. I’ll make it better. But now? I let myself have this day. In bed.

neil-gaiman: She’s in the last seven hours of her Kickstarter. She’s got a warchest to make and promote her CD, to film videos, to go on tour, to print her art book. And just importantly, she’s changed things: her phone is ringing off the hook with calls from The Economist, Spin, The Wall Street Journal,… That’s right! It’s a good day for art.
depression isn't something i can just "get over"
but it is something I can wait out, and do my best to take care of myself. it’s imperfect, and i wish i didn’t have to deal with this. but i’m learning to manage. my mood disorder is real. and it sucks. it more than just “sucks.” it leaves me existentially empty. disconnected. reeling into a world of meaninglessness. and i have to remind myself it will...
i just can't anymore.
everyone in my life is going to hear “no” a lot more often.

I kinda think Justin Bieber looks like a lesbian. I mean, amirite?
As egos collide, Black Widow—street name, Natasha Romanova—is the only character...– From an article about the reviews downplaying/ignoring the importance of Black Widow in the film, and the role of women in action in general. (via honeyspider)
skrinkles3 asked: I love your blog! I was wondering how you deal with guilt after eating something or fear of eating something- thats what gets to me the most. Also, this may be a unique (or unanswerable) question but how did you as another activist become an activist for yourself and create your own happiness?
teganquinbanter: grasstomyknees: What if when they were babies, Tegan and Sara’s mom accidentally called Sara the name Tegan and she continued doing it for years afterwards and Sara is actually Tegan and Tegan is actually Sara? I’m beginning to think that the T&S fandom has a little too much time on their hands…(as I look up which Revel & Riot t-shirt I’m going...
Clip from the Rachel Maddow show about anti-abortion terrorism in Atlanta. This is happening my city. Anti-abortion extremists are making the city unsafe, and it’s happening right now. Legislation is shifting, taking rights away. We need to know what’s happening, and we need to do something. This is MY city. Soon, I’m going to be volunteer at the Feminist Center. Which has the...
I believed that I wanted to be a poet, but deep down I just wanted to be a poem.– Jaime Gil de Bieda (via llenalena)
My body is fucking perfect.
I’ve decided that I don’t buy into this whole business of: We are all supposed to be our own worst critics and hate everything about ourselves and what we do, in order to be valid/real/human/kind/talented/etc. It’s revolutionary to like who you are. You can still work hard, improve stuff, be great at something, and move people. Liking yourself does NOT mean you will become a...
I just spent the last ten minutes looking at...
I’m thinking three things. 1. Whoa fitness. 2. Whoa hardworking. 3. Whoa talented. Not to mention she’s beyond attractive. (I secretly wish she was gay, EVEN THOUGH SHE’S NOT AND THAT’S TOTALLY COOL) BUT I can’t tell if that was a good thing I just did and I am inspired as a human to become my best self, or if it was stupid and I feel unworthy and less than...
Florence + the Machine - Cosmic Love (Reversed)
Had to call out of work due to being sick all morning and much of the afternoon. Felt depressed and emotional and ill for quite a bit. Cried. A lot. Considered staying in bed all day, allowing myself to become one with the quilt pattern and feel all the painful feelz all day long. But I didn’t. Got up, took bath. Went outside. Got my new barbell for my septum. Went grocery...

cruelyouth: I was offered money to sleep with a white woman’s friend. I was in undergraduate and trying to go to class. It was close to the middle of the day. I was walking by this coffee shop on the way, and it was these who white women in a car. One of them asked me to get in the car to… I believe this. I know that this kind of objectification and harassment exists because I’ve...

skrinkles3: Things that will help lower abortion rates: Comprehensive sex education in schools. Cheaper/easier access to birth control, condoms, and other preventative methods. Openness and communication between parents and sexually active children. Openness within the community regarding Planned… I once did a research project which compared the countries with the lowest rates of...
Dudes. Imagine life here in the US — or indeed, pretty much anywhere in the...– John Scalzi tells it like it is. (via bookling-stormborn) That is a fabulous breakdown of privilege. (via ouyangdan) I approve of this analogy. Even if it doesn’t mention all axes of oppression the analogy definitely works. Definitely. (via jemimaaslana) Huge fan of geeky analogies for...

I actually like Jenny Schecter.
Yes, towards the end of the series, she became so manic and narcissistic that she spun off into another dimension and became obnoxious. To me, it seemed like a mental health problem left untreated rather than her just being a terrible human being. She was suffering and the momentum of her life took her down. But for the majority of the series, she was incredible. There rarely are authentic,...
