It makes me sad that I didn’t graduate with my 2014 class. It also makes me sad that I’m so socially awkward and am unable to be a social being because nerves…
"Maybe you’re right about what he wrote, but he meant it as a friend?"
"I don’t want him as a friend. I want him to go down on me for so long that he has to EVOLVE GILLS.”
"All right, calm down… and drink some of your coke."
this scene gets funnier and funnier every time i watch it (and that’s a whole lot…) Rae is essentially me in this situation…
That’s not a weakness. It’s a strength that He’s willing and desires to learn to master what He owns. If you think B. B. King never had to learn how to master Lucille, then you’ve obviously never heard him play.
Yea it’s clearly our “generation that’s making homosexuality a trend.” Seriously, pisses me off when people say that. look at this! It’s always been around, it’s not a trend, it’s real. It’s beautiful.
These are really beautiful images.
This makes me really happy
There’s a long history of lesbian-like activity in the West. In the 19th century US, especially after the Civil War killed off so many young men, middle-class and other genteel girls were encouraged in Boston marriages — relationships with other women of similar educational and class backgrounds. Since women were considered naturally chaste and disinterested in sex, these love affairs were seen as innocent and spiritual. Women’s lives were wholly separate from men’s that young women infrequently had male friends who weren’t considered a marriage prospect. They were encouraged to keep to all-female social circles, and the advent of women’s colleges further encouraged that. Women were expected to mentor each other, love each other, dance with each other, with the older woman acting as the cavalier, the man in the relationship, protecting and guiding the younger, pursuing her and courting her in ways not unlike how young men would court their brides. But the prevailing cultural wisdom was that these relationships would be limited to kisses and poetry — women were incapable of sexual desire, they tolerated sex in heterosexual marriages because men were sex-driven beasts who demanded it of them. Without a man, it was presumed that these relationships would be chaste, innocent, and wholly emotional. Lesbian-like behaviour is most tolerated when women are perceived as less sexual than men. Homosexual behaviour becomes threatening when sex is involved — when, in the 1920s, women were seen as able to have sexual drives and the idea of sexually companionable marriages came onto the landscape, Boston marriages suddenly became unnatural and disgusting because they directed women’s sexual interests towards other women instead of to the proper channels: towards men. The flapper was all about the sexually available (to men) young woman. She contributed to the demise of widely accepted lesbian or lesbian-like relationships. As soon as the flapper was capable of wanting sex herself instead of tolerating it from her male partner, lesbian/lesbian-like relationships were threatening, deviant, and ruined young women’s chances to become good wives and mothers.
So remember this as you look at the pre-1920s images. Those women were allowed these passionate loves, even encouraged in them (sometimes after they managed to get a husband, Eleanor Roosevelt in particular), all because the patriarchy was convinced that women weren’t capable of sexual feelings towards one another. As long as women were seen as desexed, as creatures of sentiment and emotion instead of passion and desire, lesbianism wasn’t a threat. The minute women were regarded by patriarchal culture as having a natural sex drive, lesbian-like behaviour became deviant and damning.
We didn’t invent homosexuality in the past 20 or 30 or 50 years. But we continue to labour under the belief and cultural expectation that women’s sexuality is something owed to and owned by men, forever de-legitimising women’s relationships unless men in some way benefit.
Members of Congress are living off food stamps for a week to protest Republican cuts. It’s a challenge for them, but GOP cuts would hurt millions of everyday Americans.
Why does this not have more publicity. This needs it!
I want a reality tv show where politicians have to live in poverty for a month. They have to live in Government housing, shop with food stamps, and get only a limited amount of money for clothes. Because here, they still have all their trappings, lilke nice cars and thousand dollar suits. I want them in Walmart jeans trying to determine if they can afford a carton of milk.
If we had that, just watch how quickly things would change
Someone should start a petition for this reality show. We can call the show Poor Politics.
If Barbie was an actual woman, she would be 5’9” tall, have a 39” bust, an 18” waist, 33” hips and a size 3 shoe.
• Barbie calls this a “full figure” and likes her weight at 110 lbs.
• At 5’9” tall and weighing 110 lbs, Barbie would have a BMI of 16.24 and fit the weight criteria for anorexia. She likely would not menstruate.
• If Barbie was a real woman, she’d have to walk on all fours due to her proportions.
• Slumber Party Barbie was introduced in 1965 and came with a bathroom scale permanently set at 110 lbs with a book entitled “How to Lose Weight” with directions inside stating simply “Don’t eat.”
i’m always reblogging this.
I’ve reblogged this a million times and will ALWAYS reblog it. She is so beautiful…It’s a great message.
I always reblog this when I see it on my dash.
I’m willing to bet that no little or submissive is in their ‘-space’ all the time. You have nothing to feel guilty about. If you feel like you can’t be a submissive because you’re not entering a certain ‘-space’ then you need to look at why you think that. Has someone made you feel that way? Did you learn that from somewhere?
Some submissives never or hardly ever enter ‘-space’. For me, kittenspace is a few times a month and subspace is hardly ever. Does that make me less of a submissive than someone who can enter those ‘spaces’ easily? Hell naw!
Just to add to this. I would argue even if people say they’re in their sub/little/pet/slave space 24/7 don’t take it a face value. It’s easy for them to lie and over exaggerate themselves to make themselves sound like a “better” sub/little/pet/slave. Then they like to play the “mightier than you” game and argue their way is the “one twu way”. To be in that space all the time would be emotionally and mentally exhausting. As long as its safe, consensual, critically aware and you’re having fun you are not a bad sub. Much love! -Luna
It’s like Marvel is really trying to piss people off, lol.
and I love it *in my jeezy voice*
