Male privilege is oversexualizing a normal part of a woman’s body to the point where she is punished for wearing a pair of shorts at school. They are legs and they get me where I need to go. I don’t “display” them for your enjoyment, I just made a mistake by assuming that partially exposing an appropriate part of my body on an 80 degree day wouldn’t land me in detention.
“I don’t need love to feel like I’ve given up on trying and will settle for what’s available because I’m exhausted. I need it to feel like we deserve each other because we authentically want each other. And I don’t need love to have this ever-burning fire of emotion. I need it to be sincerely passionate but calming and playful, in a world where so many things can stress you out. I don’t need love to solely prevent a lifetime of aloneness. I need it to feel like a true friend, a true companion, will care for me simply, purely, and as uncomplicatedly as possible.”—Kovie Biakolo, What I Think About Love (via perfect)
Growing up my best friend was my dad. I was the ultimate daddys girl. Even if it only lasted till I was 7. Even if we didnt see eachother again until I was 12. Even if we didnt speak again until I was 17 and it was too late. He was always my person. Always. And Im so fucking pissed off at everyone in this god forsaken world because I dont have him and I fucking need him now more than ever and I cant have him because hes fucking dead and fuck tha everything happens for a reason shit because thats just it its nothing but fucking bullshit. what fuck reason is there. what, why? did it make me a better person? did it make anyone happy? what the fuck reason could there possibly be because I havent seen a single god damn good one and its been a fucking year already.
I’m so detached and distant and cold at times, but I swear if you spark my interest, I can become so clingy and you’ll become so important to me and I will put so much of my time and effort towards you. But then you’ll get tired of me.
“I no longer have the energy for meaningless friendships, forced interactions or unnecessary conversations. If we don’t vibrate on the same frequency there’s just no reason for us to waste our time. I’d rather have no one and wait for substance than to not feel someone and fake the funk.”—Joquesse Eugenia (via palandri)
