Why the fuck are Disney movies so fucking deep?
Probably so kids will have more of a probability to grow up with better self esteem and a better perspective of the world than most people have.
“Whenever we portray domestic violence as somehow less bad than random violence against a stranger, we’re furthering the idea that being in a relationship automatically gives a man the right to a woman’s body, and that being with him is tantamount to consenting to be hurt in that way. I feel this is really important, so I’ll say it again: Whenever we think that a woman who just doesn’t leave is responsible for what a man does to her, and that he is less culpable than if he had beaten a stranger, we’re implying that being in a relationship with him is akin to giving consent for whatever he might do to her. In other words, we’re equating a relationship with ownership, and decide that what goes on within it is nothing to do with us.”The Power of Silence in Enabling Domestic Violence | Crates and Ribbons (via antineutral)
If only because domestic abuse and random violence are so often portrayed in LGBTQAI+/MOGII media and domestic abuse is so prevalent in LGBTQAI+/MOGII, I want to point out that we’re furthering the idea that being in a relationship automatically gives people the rights to their partner’s body. That goes for men who are abused by women as well. Although it definitely can be part of sexist power structures, it isn’t always.(via fuckyeahsexeducation)
"i’ll be speaking with my lawyer" is the adult version of saying "im telling mom"
“Because lying to your kids about sex helps nobody. Telling them that sex is “only between mommies and daddies” is a lie that leads to confused, hormone charged teenagers. Telling them that sex is “only something that happens when two people love each other very much” is a lie that causes hormone charged teenagers to confuse “love” with “lust,” or “obsession.” It leads to leaps of logic like, “If I have sex with them, we must be in love.” Or worse- “If I love them, I have to have sex with them.” And how many teenage tragedies are based on that misconception?”Lea Grover, "We Don’t Play With Our Vulvas At The Table" (via themindislimitless)

if u are scared or worried or stressed please just remember that even if you mess up super badly, doggies on the street will still tug on their owners when u walk by because they wanna say hello to u so badly
I think the “women are mysterious” thing can also come from:
1) Women actually being quite clear, but not telling men what they want to hear. ”She said she doesn’t want to talk to me? So many mixed messages and confusing signals!”
2) Women not having cheat codes. ”I tried being nice, and she didn’t have sex with me. I tried being an asshole, and she didn’t have sex with me. Come on, there’s got to be some kind of solution to this puzzle!”
3) Women not being a hive mind. ”First a woman told me that she likes guys with big muscles. Then the very next day a woman told me she thinks muscles aren’t attractive at all. Make up your mind, women!”
4) An individual woman doing something confusing, and instead of asking “why is she doing this now?” men ask “why do women always do this?”
