You can be proud of your sexuality and still in the closet for your own safety. Not everyone you know has to know that you’re not straight for you to be a ‘good’ queer/gay. Protecting yourself from homophobes is not ‘contributing to the issue’. Do not come out into a dangerous situation with no support network or without any financial independence. If you think someone might out you, don’t tell them shit.
repeat after me
you do not have to be paying close attention to something for conditioning to occur
you do not have to deliberately analyze a piece of media for the implicit messages to have an effect on you
attitudes can be impacted by things you never consciously picked up on
this is why it’s very important for us to continually analyze the media we consume and ask ourselves what messages it’s sending
People who go “both countries are at fault”
What they think they sound like:
“I’m so rational. The truth is somewhere in the middle, they’re both wrong. I’m so nuanced and enlightened with my views.”
What they actually sound like:
“History and context are things that do not exist to me. In whatever dimension I exist in, I believe that there is an equivalence between an advanced occupying army that is notorious for war crimes, and an occupied brutalized population.”
If we think about sexism and misogyny as air pollution, we’re all breathing it in, right. Regardless of how much we’re contributing to that air pollution, we all have a responsibility to fix it.

Quit perpetuating the idea that womanhood is a mass competition in femininity/fuckability.
i know jokes about john green are cheap and getting old but hes still giving fresh fodder and i dont care he calls pretty girls sluts treats nerdy girls like they are sex objects makes fun of women with eating disorders has said certain girls should kill themselves and acts like hes the biggest feminist savior to women
Remember when that ‘Time’ article came out about women who still breastfeed their kids at age 4 and 5 and everyone was like ‘eww omfg that’s so gross’ while literally drinking the breast milk of another species when they were grown ass people themselves.
My lovely friends and I did a thing.

Why can’t people love me AND love to fuck me??? Why is it hard to find both?
Cause some people are ass holes and can appreciate a chubby woman.
yes. this all coming from the man with a dick pic as his icon picture.
and the fact that you have to point out that I am a chubby woman and not a woman in general shows you could never appreciate what I have to offer.
My weight has absolutely nothing to do with being loved or being fucked. My weight has NOTHING to do with this post at all.
