There was this cute lesbian couple on the train the other day and I said “you two look so cute together”, or something to that effect, and one of them started crying. Turns out they were tourists from a particularly intolerant part of Russia and they couldn’t believe how nice people are here in New Zealand.
that no matter how close you get
you still cannot occupy the same
space as them
I think of the nights we wasted
pressing our skin against each
other so hard that we bruised
I think it can’t be true
that the closest I’ll ever be to you
is beside you
it is not enough
I hold my hand to your
and watch it float on the calm
waves of your breath
There is not enough time
to love you the way that I want to
the universe may expand infinitely
but I am not allowed that same
I cannot become the sky.
You ask me what I’m thinking
and if it hurts
I say nothing
you ask me again if it hurts
I say yes
always”—Science Says, alonesomes (via glorious—headfuck)
“It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.”—Ralph Waldo Emerson, The Complete Prose Works of Ralph Waldo Emerson (via hqlines)
I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again -
Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone.
Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.
If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time.
And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office.
I hate arguing with your parents, because you can set up a perfect arguments with many, many different points yet they will only use one point and repeat it constantly. Then you end up getting angry and they shout at you for it.
Everybody on Tumblr is fucking 14 years old
Nope, my parents did this to me well into my 20’s and I moved out of their place when I was 18.
