It is illegal for women to go topless in most cities, yet you can buy a magazine of a woman without her top on at any 7-11 store. So, you can sell breasts, but you cannot wear breasts, in America.

This is one of my favorite quotes about sexualization/objectification vs autonomy of female bodies bc it’s so succinct

I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.

1- I am glorious above all things
2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4- Show displeasure clearly.
5- NO
6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.

I like these policies ^^^

Nicki minaj is an excellent and dynamic rapper, lyrically and stylistically, she’s topped charts in a male dominated space, she started from the absolute bottom and knows how to hustle and work her image, I don’t care wether you care for her style of music or not but if you dismiss her as a trash artist I’m gonna heavily side eye you

vergen:

randomly compliment people because sometimes that will be the only kind words they will hear that day

okay this one made me laugh

I always have to remind myself
that I was never actually ethereal.
Those bones I called friends,
that jutted out
in unnatural places
were just that
not meant for me,
and not I for them.
There was no enchantment
as I so wanted to believe
We are not all that we think,
but rather, what we feel.

I would not be whisked away
by the wonderful prince,
for how well
I could make myself disappear.
I must be reminded
that no one looked at me
and wondered
what steps they could take
to become more successful
in the act of nonexistence.
I waited for the calls,
but they did not come.
The only looks I received
were out of concern and not envy,
because real people
do not want to fade to nothing.

Starving and unscathed with life,
because you’re too concerned
with the minuscule calories
of your daily intake
Will never be
the equivalent of a life.
Staring at your feet,
because it hurts to look up
and see the face
of the shell you are
is never a good look.
Your feelings carry mass
which keeps you grounded,
as humans are supposed to be.
In becoming solid again,
I had much to learn.

Feeling disappointed
and angry and sad
isn’t always bad,
because it shows that you care
enough about life
to be fazed with
its little trivialities.
And that is so much better
than living in a void
where nothing matters.
The blacks and whites
are steadily fading.
I am beginning to see
the world in color.
And sometimes
the hues terrify me.

Recovery isn’t really as grand
as I expected it to be
Life isn’t solely a glorious time
it’s not ballrooms and dances
or constant warmth.
But being human
means feeling it all
and sometimes all sucks.

But listen dear self,
as I sing to you
melodies of truth
Hear me when I say:
it is not because
you carry more mass,
it is simply because
that’s the way things are.
And sometimes you need
a little blue and grey
along with the orange and pink,
to remind yourself
just what it means
to be alive.
