I'm a teenage girl.
I don't think that I'll ever let go of some things.
I don't know what my purpose in life is.
I don't know what I want to do with my life.
What I DO know is that I love writing. Both stories and music. I love music.
Sometimes I can laugh and not care about what's going on at all and sometimes I get so bogged down by it that I cry. But that's just it. That's life. That's what happens. It's not always pretty and perfect, but it's life. And that's how I want to live it. With the knowledge that it's not always going to be a perfect fairy tale.
Just gonna leave this here…
dont forget in the states :
100% of men can be drafted
0% of women can be drafted.
just gonna leave these here for you guys who are getting pissy over my ‘white privilege’ post
Now, I’m not all anti-social justice, but you certainly can’t ignore these facts.
But let’s take a guess as to why women generally are prohibited from serving on the front lines in warzones, and why they are discouraged from working in the industrial sector? Patriarchal expectations of appropriate roles for men and women based on gender.
Who commits the majority of homicides? Men.
Why are men more likely to commit suicide instead of seeking help for their problems? It’s those pesky patriarchal gender roles again, equating emotions with femininity and therefore weakness, which discourages men from talking about their problems.
As for the custody thing, the majority of custody decisions are agreements made between both parents, which again, are probably overdetermined by patriarchal assumptions about gender that paint women as being more nurturing and therefore better parents than men.
So, although the person who made this clearly wanted to argue that male privilege doesn’t exist, what they actually did was make a pretty good graphic illustrating the ways in which patriarchal expectations and structures within a society hurt men as well as women, which, since feminism is actually aimed at dismantling the patriarchy is why men also need feminism.
Reblogging for that comment
this is me and my friend Stacey. when we were little she was hit by a drunk driver and lost an arm, and she’s really self-conscious about it, but i think she’s beautiful anyway! reblog if you think Stacey’s beautiful no matter what anyone says!

High-five for open minded people
this is cute and also observe: sometimes people aren’t being deliberately close-minded and douchey about issues like sexuality etc. ok sometimes they just need somebody to patiently and politely explain things to them
