1. You don’t have to kiss people by mistake. You just have to mean it. You just have to mean it so bad that you’ll end up asking them about their toothaches, and their postcards, and the unfinished cross-stitch of their childhood scars.

2. There will be fighting. A lot of it. About your parents, about her parents. About the time when you were too quiet that you forgot your earphones were loud enough to break porcelain. And you didn’t notice her hands shaking, almost breaking skin. Skin you swore you’ll fall unto, raindrops upon raindrops, to keep it from cracking.

3. When she cries, stay five feet away, four, three, zero, but never stay gone. She will deny you forgiveness. She will deny you her monsters, her creaking footsteps, her shower-drenched collar bones, but she will never deny you herself. You are her person. All you have to do is be there.

4. Keep her. Even when she’s a terrifying sunset, keep her. Even when she’s morose enough to be a three minute sad song played on repeat, keep her. Even when she’s breathing a lungful of dust and cobwebs, her heart strong enough to run a marathon of repeated pulses. Don’t let her go.

5. This is not a mistake. This is not a mistake. There is enough of you, and of her in this wholeness to think it not worthy. She is worthy. And you are worthy of her.

This List Of Sex Tips From Women’s Magazines Is Missing One Very Important Word

These bits of bedroom advice are from Desireé Dallagiacomo and Kaycee Filson’s poem, “Real Sex Tips,” performed at the summer 2014 National Poetry Slam.

Their full poem calling women to reclaim their sexual identity is an inspiring must-see you can watch here.

This is AMAZING.

… A magazine aimed at heterosexual women focuses its “sex tips” feature on heterosexual sex (which involves penises) and not lesbian sex or female masturbation.

The world is coming to an end, truly.

But more importantly these tips are fucking awful… pretend his dick is a joystick??? Blow pepper in his face??? smh

>people being upset over information found in magazines they aren’t forced to buy

Truly we are living in the most oppressing times

When discussing feminism, guys will always be like, “girls always like it when I pay for the meals, open doors, and lift boxes for them.” Is it really that hard to recognize where your “good deeds” are coming from? You do it because you see girls as inferior, not because you’re genuinely an altruistic person. This is benevolent sexism.

"Dump the toxic people out of your life. Get them gone. Kick them to the curb. Stop maintaining relationships with people that make you feel guilty about things that you like, that make you feel shitty about yourself, that put you down, that don’t fucking support you, that are mean. You just get those people and shove them out of your life. Delete them off of Facebook, break it down easily. Just kind of fizzle out with the contact. Let it be like almost as if it might be growing apart. Just get rid of those people, because instead of just maintaining these “relationships” with people for the sake of just being polite or civil, you can be civil without having people that you can’t stand in your life and you’ll be so much happier. You need to stop maintaining relationships with toxic people because it’s just not good for you and it’s not worth any of your time."

This started out as a feminist post but now it’s just my girls teaching others a lesson. I’ll add some later.

"It’s so easy to forget that the person you’re looking at is a human being. We’re all just as complex, misunderstood and real as each other. So I encourage you to try and be more aware of when you’re being very judgmental. And try to remember that we’re all just human fucking beings, trying to be happy and trying to find a purpose in the world. Our society has just become this rude, shitty, detached bunch of people. It’s so hard to find empathy these days. Especially online, oh forget about online."

“You know that death is the most beautiful part of life, right? Death is beautiful because we all fear death. And fear is the most amazing emotion of all because it creates complete awareness. It brings you to now, and it makes you truly present. And when you’re truly present, that’s nirvana. That’s pure love. So death is pure love.”
