“You don’t owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend, spouse, partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don’t owe it to your mother, you don’t owe it to your children, you don’t owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked “female”.” —A Dress A Day (via hahanose)
“Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson (via wetbehindthears)
Conversation I heard in the club.
- Shy Guy: Hey there.
- Random Guy: Hey, what's up?
- Shy Guy: Nothing much, I just wanted to tell you that you're really cute.
- Random Guy: Thanks dude!
- Shy Guy: So, are you here with anyone?
- Random Guy: Yeah, my girlfriend just went to the washroom.
- Shy Guy: Oh God, I'm sorry, didn't know you were straight!
- Random Guy: That's alright, it's cool.
- Shy Guy: You don't mind me calling you cute?
- Random Guy: A compliment is a compliment no matter who it comes from.
“You know what the difference is between a dream and a goal? A plan.” —Jodi Picoult, Lone Wolf (via greatdoings)
“It’s also important to note that punishing women for complying with cultural demands for performative femininity is a key component of women’s oppression. Our culture insists that women conform to a certain conventional beauty standards, and concern themselves with “girl things” like fashion and hair and makeup, in order to be acceptable as women. Yet when women like Kim do this, they are derided – called stupid, shallow, and vapid. As feminists, we must never stand by while women are called derogatory names for engaging in socially coded feminine activities. Even if we don’t like those women.” —Not that I necessarily give a fuck about the Kardashians but preach (via kidkvlt)
