microbiology, tattoos and piercings, fangirling hard, not being on fire, being a hardcore feminist and equal rights supporter, eating all the things, art, live music, laughing at my own jokes a proper fuckload and making mac and cheese.
"Your mother did not raise you with a wolf in your chest so you could howl over losing a man."
read this on here today and i haven’t stopped thinking about this quote since (via pluiedem
"Who sees the human face correctly: the photographer, the mirror, or the painter?"
"When I was 12 boys slid their hand up my thigh and slapped my butt. I smiled and took it because I didn’t know it was okay to say stop. I didn’t know that I could say no. So, when the principal calls telling me my daughter is suspended for punching a boy who wouldn’t stop touching her, I will cook her favorite meals. When she tells me how she cursed at the boy who wouldn’t move his hands off her knee even though she asked him to, I will smile and pull out her favorite movie to watch together. I will celebrate the fact that she accepts her body as her own and knows she has the right to say no. I never want my daughter to think her body belongs to men, because it is her own and my god should she be proud. I will teach her it’s more than okay to say stop, something I wish I had known when I was that age."
