“ The reality is that fat people are often supported in hating their bodies, in starving themselves, in engaging in unsafe exercise, and in seeking out weight loss by any means necessary. A thin person who does these things is considered mentally ill. A fat person who does these things is redeemed by them. This is why our culture has no concept of a fat person who also has an eating disorder. If you’re fat, it’s not an eating disorder — it’s a lifestyle change.
“ What men mean when they talk about their “crazy” ex-girlfriend is often that she was someone who cried a lot, or texted too often, or had an eating disorder, or wanted too much/too little sex, or generally felt anything beyond the realm of emotionally undemanding agreement. That does not make these women crazy. That makes those women human beings, who have flaws, and emotional weak spots. However, deciding that any behavior that he does not like must be insane– well, that does make a man a jerk.

And when men do this on a regular basis, remember that, if you are a woman, you are not the exception. You are not so cool and fabulous and levelheaded that they will totally get where you are coming from when you show emotions other than “pleasant agreement.”

When men say “most women are crazy, but not you, you’re so cool” the subtext is not, “I love you, be the mother to my children.” The subtext is “do not step out of line, here.” If you get close enough to the men who say things like this, eventually, you will do something that they do not find pleasant. They will decide you are crazy, because this is something they have already decided about women in general.








ok y’all 

how do i ask a boy out 

roses are red
violets are blue
guess what, my bed
has room for two


twinkle twinkle little star
we can do it in a car


row, row, row your boat
gently down the stream
merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
i can make you scream

I feel like the last one is verging dangerously into serial killer territory

im really pissed that palindrome isnt palindrome backwards

Ah, yes but emordnilap is a word!

An emornilap is any word that, when spelled backwards, produces another word. Examples of emordnilap pairs include:

  • desserts & stressed
  • drawer & reward
  • gateman & nametag
  • time & emit
  • laced & decal
  • regal & lager

And therefore “emordnilap palindrome” is an emordnilap palindrome.

Which I, for one, think is really frickin’ cool.


Well :l

why do jellyfish only sting when theres physical contact

why doesnt the electricity just surge throughout the entire ocean

why dont jellyfish rule the world

Fun fact!  Jellyfish don’t use electricity to sting you.  Whenever they feel pressure against their tentacles, it causes its cells to rapidly send out these stingers into your skin that then release its venom.  Like this:

“ My heart is an infected tooth
& I can’t afford the dentist,
so I try to take pliers to it
& by pliers I mean that
I fuck people I probably
shouldn’t & I don’t even
feel that bad after it.
I mean, not for them.
I still feel bad that I know
it hurts you when I do this,
but I also feel like you deserve
a little hurt, because
who doesn’t deserve to know
that they’re still in love?
But love changes nothing,
the moon knows that when
so many people write poems
for her but she still can’t help
leaving before anyone wakes up.
What I’m trying to say is that
there’s a picture of the moon
as the background on my phone
& there’s a voice recording of you saying,
“Good morning. I’m awake. I’m awake.”
that I sometimes use as my alarm,
because I like to think that one day
you’ll wake up & it helps me with that,
but I should know better by now &
I promise that I’m trying to learn.
You just left a hole inside of me
when you decided on easy
& I’m not sure if I should grow
some violets there or if I should
just leave it empty & wide open
for someone new to try & crawl into.
