Older guys who make a big deal out of girls turning 18 genuinely terrify me. Like if you’re 35 or some shit and you would totally date or sleep with an 18 year old, you would with a younger girl (maybe even much younger) if it was legal. You don’t care about her emotional maturity or ethical sex or mutual informed consent, you care about not getting in trouble.

In the slam poem “I Think She Was A She,” spoken word poet and performance artist Leyla Josephine recounts the abortion she had as a teenager and the cultural shame she’s been constantly confronted with ever since.

Be brought to tears when you watch Leyla recite the full moving poem here. 

I love this.

Read them all here, I felt like this should be remembered somewhere because it’s really good.

YOO. 

If you try to tell me the Hunger Games isn’t good enough to go toe-to-toe with shit like 1984, Lord of the Flies, and Farenheit 451 then we are gonna have to throw the fuck down

All of this is an awesome read

And maybe I’ll have to actually read the Hunger Games now…

I am so disgusted by how misogynistic “high literature” is.

I don’t care what literature enthusiasts claim, Literary Fiction is a genre and a preference, not anything resembling objective quality.

How conversations should go:

Person 1: Can I get you a drink?
Person 2: Sure! Ginger ale would be great.
Person 1: [goes and gets a ginger ale]

Here are some things Person 1 should not say: "You want some whiskey in that?" "Are you pregnant?" "Why aren’t you drinking?", etc.

Generally, what other people are putting (or not) in their bodies isn’t super great to delve into. There could be allergies, or an illness, or pregnancy, or sobriety, or

"I think that women’s lives are multilayered. I have no problem understanding that women are interested in mascara and the Middle East. Men are allowed to talk about sports relentlessly and yet we still take them seriously. I don’t understand why women can’t talk about fashion, or sex, or love or wanting more money and not be taken as seriously as men."

It’s not friendship, it’s bromance. It’s not eyeliner, it’s guyliner. It’s not yoga, it’s broga. It’s not just silly portmanteaus, it’s evidence of the hilarious fragility of masculinity.
