(via jaimealyse) I will actually send her flowers like for real, I am on 1800 flowers RIGHT NOW because this is truly beautiful and probably actually a bit necessary?

pathwalker: “Most people realize that AIDS came from the homosexual community — it was one guy screwing a monkey, if I recall correctly, and then having sex with men. It was an airline pilot, if I recall.” “My understanding is that it is virtually — not completely, but virtually — impossible to contract AIDS through heterosexual sex…very rarely [transmitted].” “What’s the average lifespan of a...

ecowalnut: Christian ladybro on facebook says, For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who don’t believe, no proof is possible. Faith is one of those things that really bothers me about religion. It’s nothing but the belief in fairy tales but somehow it’s seen as an admirable… though it’s not my personal experience, i’m reblogging b/c it’s totally...

[TW: Rape] The Not Rape epidemic →
Not rape came in other many other forms as well. No one escaped – all my friends had some kind of experience with it during their teen years. Not rape was being pressured into losing your virginity in a swimming pool pump room to keep your older boyfriend happy. Not rape was waking up in the middle of the night to find a trusted family friend in bed with you – and having nightmares about...
i once overheard someone say we’re evolved from monkeys. i wanted to fling my shit at her. smh.
With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil...– Steven Weinberg (via seriouslypsychedelic) i agree with the first half. idk if i agree with the last. i think it takes more than religion. there are “good” people doing “evil” things in the name of religion, but then again, who sets the standards for “good” and...

lavenderblues replied to your post: don’t like #7 Also, I’m pretty sure they use clothes-pins on the backs of models’ clothes to make their clothes look like they fit better for shoots, probably because of your #3—no piece of clothing will look perfect on a model *and* on a regular person. oh, hahaha, my bad. that makes sense. derp.
Bottom line is, even if you see ‘em coming, you’re not ready for the big...– Buffy the Vampire Slayer (via eeshavon)

3dela replied to your post: do like #8 autobiographies and memoirs are my favorite genre of books :) mine, too, as of recently. it all started with Julie and Julia, and then Julia child’s autobiography, Anthony bourdain’s autobiography, and Ruth Reichl’s autobiography. and they’re all about food XD
do like #8
(auto)biographies, and life stories. we can learn some very surprising and useful things from each other’s lives.
don't like #8
excessive/daily webcam self portraits with unrelated captions. nothing against the people who take them, but they’re annoying… though, if you’re bored enough to keep taking them, maybe you should track more tags… *a webcam photo is one thing, a few webcam photos another, but constant self-portraits, that never look any different or don’t actually show off anything,...
vondell-swain: duckerly: if you write a sentence starts with, “i’m not homophobic/racist/etc but…” then you should probably just stop there it makes even completely innocuous things sound offensive like “I’m not racist or anything, but where do you want to get dinner tonight?” “hey, I’m not homophobic, but I hope you have a nice evening!”
3dela replied to your post: 3dela replied to your post: don’t like #7 i am… I understand what you had intended. :) But when discussing unrealistic beauty standards, we all have to be really, really careful that we don’t cross the line between criticizing the messages sent by advertising and body shaming. true, and kept in mind for future posts
3dela replied to your post: don’t like #7 i am calling you out on body shaming, my love. think about how saying any body type is “extremely unattractive” impacts people, especially people who fit into that body type. you’re absolutely right, i was overly prejudiced. i’ll reword it like this: the narrow definition of beauty that fashion paints for us, excluding other body types,...
all that we see or seem…– poe
check the scale
before you put yourself on the pedestal: people who are or feel overweight, or people who want less weight, aren’t the only people with weight issues. not weighing enough is a valid issue, too. and one that very much does need attention. sometimes skinny people do not feel attractive. in fact, i’m willing to bet there’s a fair portion of skinny people who wish they had more...
