Shamed by a first grader
I steal my sister’s toys while she’s at school. I lick the couch a lot.

i’m going to reblog this every monday until i die.
calling a man a “pig” is literally dehumanising how do some people not think there’s anything wrong with that how
Because chicks, fillies, birds and bitches never get dehumanised. Those vixens always get away with this kind of shit. Especially the heifers, they’re the worst. What cows.
"why do you like floral prints so much" because i’m not a person. secretly i’m just a mass of bees. trying to blend in with humans. unable to let go of my love of flowers
Some stories stay with us forever
"We need to change the way that society views women as objects — namely, as objects for male enjoyment. It’s never even considered what the female wants when it comes to what they wear, what weight they want to stay at, and how many sexual partners we choose to have, because we have to constantly present ourselves in a way dictated as “appropriate” by our male dominated society. We have to dress at just the right balance between being a “prude” and a “slut” (this is in parenthesis because these are made up and I don’t believe that either actually exists, but that’s a whole other can of worms). We are supposed to be virginal, but when we get into a relationship, be a total freak in the sheets. We are photoshopped all to hell to meet unrealistic standards and plastered onto billboards to sell anything from cars to hamburgers. We are taught from grade school to be ashamed of showing totally normal body parts like our fucking shoulders and the skin above our knees. We are supposed to be either skinny or curvy, but only curvy as in the shape of a perfect hourglass (which doesn’t occur all too often in nature). Basically, we are dehumanized. And when you are dehumanized, it becomes easier for people to justify all sorts of horrendous things. Like, RAPE and SEXUAL ASSAULT with the only excuse being “you were asking for it because you were wearing a short dress” or some other fucked up reason used as justification to blame victims of these crimes every goddamn day."
