Pug gets scolded by owner and takes it to heart 

(Source: yugoslavic)

It’s Monday. I’m going home at 6pm and a middle aged man and a teenage boy are the only people left on the bus with me. I consider the fact that because the driver is also a man I am the only person left on the bus with the correct genetic makeup for boobs. I’m automatically scared, scared because of my own anatomy. I wonder how old I was when I realized that my own body was going to be the cause of the constant anxiety and fear I feel in situations like this. I get off at the last stop and the older man smiles at me while following me up the street. His smile drips, drips, drips and my heart is pounding, pounding, pounding. He turns off down another road, but I run the rest of the way home.

Not all men.

I’m at home on a Tuesday, beginning to plan the travels I want to go on next year. I dream of wandering the streets and meeting strangers. I just can’t wait to escape the city I’ve lived in for 17 long years. But… my mum is hesitant. She’s forever worried about the danger that being a young girl traveling alone can bring. I’ll be alone and she’s scared. Surely I’m invincible. I feel invincible. But I know, I know this danger is real and I can’t help but think to myself, if I feel unsafe in my own city, how am i going to feel in a strange place with strange men who don’t speak the same language as me? If I was my brother planning this, I would probably just be wondering if European girls are going to be hot.

Not all men.

Wednesday is a beautiful sunny day but I’ve always been told that I don’t have a “nice enough body” to wear a bikini on the beach. Ever since I was 6 years old I’ve thought that having tummy fat was ugly. That skin that doesn’t have a perfectly golden glow is undesirable. I amble to a clear patch of sand in my one piece and I can feel pairs of eyes latching onto me. Hairy men in speedos who I don’t look twice at eat into my body with their stares. I’m a piece of meat. I am a piece of meat? I am here for their amusement. Please don’t let me be eaten alive.

Not all men.

Thursday night two friends and I are walking to our god damn school dance when we hear “Jesus look at you! You sluts heading to a pole?” These words snarl out of the mouth of a respectably dressed man and we stop in horror. Shivers roll up my back in fear. It’s dark. We are alone. What. Do. We. Do??? One of us pulls the finger back. I can never be sure how quickly a sexist man can get angry so we walk quickly away. We’re angry, so so angry. But also so… deflated. I wonder if we deserve this shame.

Not all men.

Sitting on the internet, Friday night and scrolling down my Facebook newsfeed:

“Haha, good job at the game today bro. You RAPED them!”
“Damn with tits like that, you’re asking for it :P”

Another sexist comment…
Another sexist comment…
Another sexist comment…

I’m shrinking and shrinking and shrinking and I want to CRY because these boys don’t realize how small they make me feel with just pressing a few keys. I see these boys on the streets, I talk to these boys, I laugh with these boys. Dear GOD, dear GOD i hope these boys don’t think actions speak louder than words…

Not all men.

Three rules that have been drilled into me since I was young run through my mind at 1.30am on a Satur… Sunday Morning:

-Don’t ever talk to strange men
-Don’t ever be alone at night in a strange place
-Don’t ever get into a car with a stranger

I break all 3 of these laws as I pull open the taxi door. Making light conversation with the driver, he doesn’t see my sweaty hand clutching the small pocket knife I keep hidden on me at all times. He doesn’t even realize the fear I feel at his mere presence. He cannot comprehend it, he never will. How easy would this 15 minute car ride be if I was born a boy?

Not all men.

It comes to Sunday, another snoozy, sleepy, Sunday and someone has the AUDACITY to tell me not all men are rapists. I say nothing.

I’m a 17 year old girl.
When I am walking alone and it’s dark, it’s all men.
When I am in a car with a man I don’t know well, it’s all men.
When men drunkenly leer at me on the streets, it’s all men.
When a boy won’t leave me alone at a party, it’s all men.

Not all men are rapists. But for a young girl like me? Every one of them has the potential to be.

Not.
All.
Men.

a piece i wrote for an english assignment about my personal experiences with rape culture, in particular with the saying “not all men” which i know has been makin a lot of controversy on the internet recently! idk just wanted to share (via trueho)

I am almost in tears because this hit me so hard

My past is littered with the bones of men who were foolish enough to think I was someone they could sleep on.

With 94 percent of the vote, Michele Roberts was elected as the new executive director of the NBA Players Association. She’s the first female head of a major pro-sports union in North America, and this is how she introduced her self to about 100 NBA players last month. 

The NY Times profile on her is a great read

Can’t believe this drawing is still out there the internet is amazing. I think I did this to promote that blog I made where people would submit their alien stories to me and then I’d draw what they’d discribe. It was fun I should try that again.

ebay usually!

if you’re of a smaller size, you can order from animetoybox who has like, hundreds and hundreds of bra sets that are adorable for $13. i wear a 30D on a good day (bigger depending where I am on my cycle) and they all fit me if i go up to a bigger rib cage size, so just use your discretion

aroundsunshine has good sets that come in more sizes

otherwise here’s a few sellers that i poke around on to windowshop dresses & blouses & such: everythingclothing, qngirls, minxue (cute socks), tian, magnetic_27 (just look at that pineapple dress— i could die!), sweetbaby,ph, ectmall, and strong

Hey hi, I was wondering how you keep your skin so clear and perfect???? Also, hope you're having a lovey day

THANK YOU OMG

i used to change up my skincare game p often but it’s pretty simple nowadays

if i’m pms-y i tend to break out around my temples so i use african black soap 3-4 times a week and moisturize a LOT. coconut oil is great for this

otherwise i just wash once in the morning and once at night with Yes To Blueberries facewash (it’s good for dry skin— i’d do the Yes TO Tomatoes one for oily skin) and moisturize at night before bed with Botanics Hydrating Night Cream. :^) and i use BB cream with no primer and very high SPF to keep any dangerous stuff away!!!

sometimes if i’m extra lazy at night i’ll just use love & beauty makeup wipes and then moisturize, but it’s a bad habit & washing my face makes my skin a lot nicer.

honestly it’s all about getting into a cycle and keeping up on it. when i start slipping up it’s really noticeable. i used to do scrubs and stuff but my skin’s gotten a little too sensitive for that (but i had no idea! so i’d scrub, break out, scrub away the breakout, breakout again, etc etc..) simplifying your routine is the best you can do honestly
