"You are a woman. Skin and bones, veins and nerves, hair and sweat. You are not made of metaphors. Not apologies, not excuses."
Sarah Kay, excerpt from “The Type” (via thepreppyvegan)
Dear Lego company:
My name is Charlotte. I am 7 years old and I love Legos but I don’t like that there are more lego boy people and barely any lego girls. Today I went to a store and saw Legos in two sections - the pink (girls) and the blue (boys). All the girls did was sit at home, go to the beach, and shop, and they had no jobs but the boys went on adventures, worked, saved people and had jobs, even swam with sharks. I want you to make more Lego girl people and let them go on adventures and have fun ok!?! Thank you.
Since it’s summer and this mindset begins to pop up more, let us clarify something.
Girls being upset over being seen in bra/panties but not bikinis is not a double standard.
If she’s in a bikini, it’s what she consciously chose to wear and be seen in, in a public space, and like any outfit she was prepared to be seen in it by other people.
If you’ve caught a girl in her underwear, however, you’re probably trespassing in her bedroom, bathroom, or other personal space, where she should be in privacy, and she has every right to be upset if that privacy is violated.
It’s not about what she’s wearing or what it is covering, but rather her privacy and consent to be seen in the first place. Please respect that.
Omg, amazing that someone thought to explain this
This is the world we live in.
what the fuck?
If I ever catch any of my followers pulling this shit I will personally dip my genitals into your cereal.
wow look at all these fucking rapists
They’re all rapists, and they’re proud. They’ll publicly admit that they’re rapists. They don’t deserve jobs, homes, or food. They should be digging through the trash in an attempt to meet their basic needs. Instead, they live as if they’re good people.
