Above anything else, stay true to yourself. Whether that means for you that you like to have blue hair, or you don’t like to drink, or you are attracted to the same sex, or you want to remove yourself from Facebook, or you’ve got 3 different kids from 3 different dads but you know you’re a really good mom, or you cry for a week because your turtle died. Whatever your truth is, stay true to yourself. But be a good person while you’re at it.

I want someone to write a book where Mermaids are the women thrown off ships when the sailors got afraid because having a woman on the boat is bad luck. And as they sink to the bottom, legs tied together, they change slowly until they can breathe, until they can use their tied up legs to swim. And they drown sailors in revenge, luring them in by singing in their husky voices still stinging from the salt water they breathed. 

someone please write this

ah! just hold one for one second…

i’m looking in my handbag for a fuck to give about you but it seems mostly empty…

except for this old thing…

i wonder what that could mean.

actually i don’t wonder. that was a lie i just told. sorry about that. but what i’m not sorry about is what i am, what i know i am and what i know i will still be tomorrow even if i get a hundred more messages like this.

do you think you’re being original? do you think you can just tell me to stop and i will? that’s like telling the sun not to like, idk, be the fucking sun. it’s not happening. give up.

the other thing is, your message is tame. it’s so mild. you’re like a little drop of water in a sea of hot sauce. i get death threats, i get people telling me i’m going to hell, i get people who sincerely want to hurt me just because of who i am.

and i’m still fucking doing it.

but little arrogant plot holes like you think you can just tell me to stop.

no, you wet toaster. no.

i am a fucking queen and i will be a woman for as long as i know myself to be one. you will be a damp fork for as long as the universe continues to exist.

anyway if you’re done being a century old sock i’m going to go be a woman somewhere you’re not being a human embodiment of chapped lips

Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014

Both by Dan Bagan

Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.

Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”

Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.

These are women are who I always wanted to be.

Every frame of the Harry Potter movies, condensed into a barcode.

#oh my god #look at this #how it starts off with reds and oranges and purples #bright colors #and then it gets continuously darker towards the end #it’s so fitting to the story #and then there is that strip of white at the end #which has to be the king’s cross scene #and it’s just #light #in a dark time #which is extremely beautiful

you know why theres a white part at the end? because happiness can be found even in the darkest of times
