As I examine my body, finding many new stretch marks I had never seen before:
How cool. How cool is it that your skin stretches and grows to keep you comfortable and doesn’t just suck you in like a corset. Your body loves you and wants you to be comfy! So it stretches and gives you these wonderful marks all over your belly and thighs and hips and boobs just to show how much it loves you and wants you to be comfy! How nice!
“To all the girls whose thighs touch, with stretchmarks laid like gold across their backside, with bellies too full for any inadequate hands, thank goddess for your abundance.”—Kim Crosby (via mapof-theproblematique)
Do you think it is stupid that girls in school are forced to dress to the collar bone and the shoulder and the knee in order to "not distract" the boys' studies
Absolutely. I went to a uniform school and then (later on) a free dress school, and at both schools teachers paid more attention to what the girls were wearing.
I remember a girl getting in trouble for wearing the sports uniform (loose fit collared shirts) because it was ‘too tight around her chest’. What they really meant to say was ‘you’re wearing a baggy shirt but because you have size F cup breasts we can see you have breasts which means you need to buy a shirt that is even more large on you because your body offends us and we can’t deal with the fact that teenage girls grow boobs’.
You know, my high school had far more concerning issues (such as kids being bullied in the classroom in front of teachers) but oh no lets focus on sexualising young girls bodies; we couldn’t have a girl exposing a bit of her collar bone or shoulders, could we?
'I will slaughter every single blonde slut I see': Seven people killed as son of Hunger Games assistant director carries out drive-by shooting 'because women rebuffed his advances and he was a virgin at 22'
Elliot Rodger, 22, went on a shooting rampage in Santa Barbara, killing six
He posted a video to social media Thursday in which he rants about how women have rejected his advances
Lamenting that he was a 22-year-old virgin, Rodger promises ‘retribution’ and ‘punishment’
He says he plans to enter the ‘hottest sorority on SCSB’ and ‘slaughter’ the girls inside
Women don’t get to exist. Women don’t get to say no.
Oddly, there appears to be an anti-pickup artist community of men who are equally as misogynistic as the actual pick up artists. They’re not against it because it’s offensive and demeaning, they’re against it because it didn’t work.
Rodger was a website forum called PUAHate.com, which describes itself as the ‘Anti-Pickup-Artist Movement’ and aims to reveal ‘the scams, deception, and misleading marketing techniques used by dating gurus and the seduction community to deceive men and profit from them.’
Its members are all men who have spent a lot of time and money on books and seminars and other materials that claim to help men ‘pick-up’ women - but failed.
The bitter, often misogynistic threads are full of tales of woe from men who don’t know how to get women to date them and blame the women themselves for the problem.
He posted in 2013, ‘If you could release a virus that would kill every single man on Earth, except for yourself because you would have the antidote, would you do it? You will be the only man left, with all the females. You would be able to have your pick of any beautiful woman you want, as well as having dealt vengeance on the men who took them from you. Imagine how satisfying that would be.’
Rodger’s actions have been lauded on the site by other members who have called him a ‘hero.’
How fucking disturbing is it that these men are applauding his actions? The thread above appears to have been removed - clicking on the link leads to a database error and the internet archive has only one snapshot of it from earlier today, which is of the “the forum is down for maintenance” sign. Here is an example of one of their threads.
His video is just a litany of “I’m such a good guy, why do women like assholes, I am owed sex because I went to college.” It’s very creepy - it doesn’t come across as a rant so much as a carefully affected performance. Everything is very deliberate and measured.
“Develop a healthy relationship with food. If you’re hungry, eat. If you’re full, don’t eat. Eat vegetables to be good to your body, but eat ice cream to be good to your soul.
Take pictures of yourself frequently. Chronicle your life. Selfies are completely underrated. Even if the pictures are unflattering, keep them anyway. There will always be mountains and cities and buildings, but you will never look the same way as you did in that one moment in time.
Your worth does not depend on how desirable someone finds you. Spend less time in front of the mirror and more time with people who make you feel beautiful.
Close doors. Don’t hold onto things that no longer brings you happiness and do not help you grow as a person. It is okay to walk away from toxic relationships. You are not weak for letting go.
Forgive yourself. We all have something in our pasts that we are ashamed of, but they only weigh us down if we allow them to. Make amends with the old you and work every day to become the person that you’ve always wanted to be.”—Tina Tran, Tips to being a happier you (via exoticwild)
