Never trust a dude that wants to “play devil’s advocate” or debate your life experiences “for fun” or “to relax”. Because that dude has already decided that your life experiences are abstract ideas that do not require his acknowledgement or respect….

we don’t tell the mountains or the trees or the rivers to be any different than what they are. We don’t like them more if they’re longer, or wider, or smaller, or deeper. We love them because they just are what they are. Why can’t we say the same to our bodies? Why is my existence questioned solely based on the size of my body? Why am I not perfect just the way I am? We must all ask ourselves why and understand that it’s not us that isn’t perfect but solely these ideas of ‘perfection’ that aren’t. We are all beautiful creations and I hope you can remember that the next time you look in the mirror.

if anybody asks me why i hate men, i’m just gonna redirect them to this post.

it’s pretty fucking obvious that men only want to invest in breast cancer research to further degrade, objectify, and jerk off to body parts they already feel 100% entitled to. that’s what is at stake for them. 

what about the women whose “tatas” weren’t saved? how must they feel being surrounded by awareness ads that focus more on keeping women’s sexy-sexy-titties-to-continue-titillating-the-males than saving real life human beings and helping survivors? 

If anyone’s wondering, those posts came from here. It’s a forum for breast cancer support. Give it a read, and you’ll see how many women are outright abandoned by their husbands, sometimes after being married for decades, because their “tatas” couldn’t be saved.

How bout more concern for peoples lives than their tatas?

so today i learned that in the late 1800s-early 1900s, the navy became concerned about possible homosexual activity among their sailors

so they sent in decoys, whose job was to pretend to want to engage in homosexual activity in order to find gay sailors

except then the job of the decoy got popular

like, really popular

like… worryingly popular?

reports said that the decoys were performing their jobs with “much enthusiasm and zeal”

eventually the navy decided. to. just stop.
