Reblog if you are part of the No Elbow Left Behind Network.
when women are confident we get criticized by men who are weak. they expect us to turn to them to be self assured and get permission to love ourselves. but we’re only allowed to love ourselves enough so that we still heavily rely on them and their praises to get by.
I don’t need anyone to tell me it’s okay to love who I am and neither do you.
If a man tells you that you love yourself too much, show him the door.
I’d tell them to open a fucking book or a newspaper……..

And then tell them how unreasonable it is to suggest that people pack up their entire lives and move to another country to run away from racism instead of racism being combated and fixed where they live. The people being oppressed by an unfair power structure, the victims of racism, should have to be punished further and leave the country? How does that make sense? What kind of Abe Lincoln shit is that?

when I was six I threw a tantrum because I wanted a slushie from 711 and I remember my dad said “I will never buy you a slushie” AND LITERALLY RIGHT NOW HE CAME IN THE CAR WITH A SLUSHIE AND I WAS LIKE WHY DIDNT YOU GET ME ONE AND HE LOOKED ME DEAD IN THE EYE AND SAID “REMEMBER WHEN YOU WERE SIX”
