My garden in my own house is gonna bee a little bee haven!! Hang in there guys!! I’m coming!!
A boy sprawled next to me on the bus, elbows out, knee pointing sharp into my thigh.
He frowned at me when I uncrossed my legs, unfolded my hands
and splayed out like boys are taught to: all big, loose limbs.
I made sure to jab him in the side with my pretty little sharp purse.
At first he opened his mouth like I expected him to, but instead of speaking up he sat there, quiet, and took it for the whole bus ride.
Like a girl.
Once, a boy said my anger was cute, and he laughed,
and I remember thinking that I should sit there and take it,
because it isn’t ladylike to cause a scene and girls aren’t supposed to raise their voices.
But then he laughed again and all I saw
was my pretty little sharp nails digging into his cheek
before drawing back and making a horribly unladylike fist.
(my teacher informed me later that there is no ladylike way of making a fist.)
When we were both in the principal’s office twenty minutes later
him with a bloody mouth and cheek, me with skinned knuckles,
I tried to explain in words that I didn’t have yet
that I was tired of having my emotions not taken seriously
just because I’m a girl.
Girls are taught: be small, so boys can be big.
Don’t take up any more space than absolutely necessary.
Be small and smooth with soft edges
and hold in the howling when they touch you and it hurts:
the sandpaper scrape of their body hair that we would be shamed for having,
the greedy hands that press too hard and too often take without asking permission.
Girls are taught: be quiet and unimposing and oh so small
when they heckle you with their big voices from the window of a car,
because it’s rude to scream curse words back at them, and they’d just laugh anyway.
We’re taught to pin on smiles for the boys who jeer at us on the street
who see us as convenient bodies instead of people.
Girls are taught: hush, be hairless and small and soft,
so we sit there and take it and hold in the howling,
pretend to be obedient lapdogs instead of the wolves we are.
We pin pretty little sharp smiles on our faces instead of opening our mouths,
because if we do we get accused of silly women emotions
blowing everything out of proportion with our PMS, we get
condescending pet names and not-so-discreet eyerolls.
Once, I got told I punched like a girl.
I told him, Good. I hope my pretty little sharp rings leave scars.
Fucking love this
My reaction to this gif went from stone-faced “this is dumb” to full-on snickering gleefully in about fifteen seconds.

Fuck these look delicious…… 😓
Remember IT IS NOT A WOMAN’S RESPONSIBILITY TO PREVENT RAPE. In the world we live in, however, women should be empowered with any tools in order to protect themselves. Source for more facts follow NowYouKno
i think the best but also saddest thing about this is that MEN created this product to protect women from MEN
Where can buy??
FINALLY SOMEONE DISMISSES THESE AWFUL GAY STEREOTYPES
My cycle at Real Madrid has come to an end. Impossible to write down what I felt here. I want to share my feelings In these four years I had the honor to wear this shirt, I felt nothing but pride. Today I have to go, but I want to make clear that it has never been my desire to leave Real Madrid. I only asked for fair things. I value many things, money isn’t one. I’ve been lucky enough to share a dressing room with fantastic players, who have been even better companions. I want to apologize for the times I was wrong, on or off the pitch. It was never my intention to harm anyone. I sweated for this shirt every game as if it was my last game. I want to thank Spain for everything they gave me and especially for allowing my daughter to be born. My wife, daughter and I will be forever grateful to Spain. I want to thank my teammates for supporting me, in good and bad times. I wish that Real Madrid has a great season and achieves all their objectives. I will never forget the game at the Bernabeu in the Supercopa where I received an immense ovation.
Hala Madrid until forever!”

I always wish I could do something like this
the worst thing about being shy and introverted is that you most of the time come off as cold and arrogant like you think you’re better than everyone else and thats why you don’t talk to people or hang out with them but it’s really the opposite its like you’re so uncomfortable with yourself that you don’t wanna share it with anyone else so you just dont and people think you’re an asshole but you’re actually just really scared
This actually made me tear up a little it’s my life so much.
