If you wanna be my lover…

….you gotta be prepared for my hour-long rants about fictional female characters and why they are so important.

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)

straight women who casually use the word “girlfriend” to refer to their platonic lady friends, i have nothing against you, but you make the world really confusing,

I love this because it means that just a little, heteronormativity has decreased

i think a woman who would never say “boyfriend” to refer to a platonic male friend using the word “girlfriend” for a platonic female friend and assuming everyone will know it is a non-romantic relationship evidently by very nature of it being between two women is actually kind of the definition of heteronormativity

remember that first live action scooby doo movie. where the antagonist was literally scrappy doo and he was stealing peoples souls, like actually really stealing and absorbing souls, and was planning on taking scoobys soul to rule the world with an army of demons and get revenge on the gang after they abandoned him because he kept peeing in the car, and near the end he turned into this huge dog monster

What’s the difference?” I asked him. “Between the love of your life, and your soulmate?”

I’m not saying that Lupita Nyong’o is a real-life Disney princess, but hey, if the shoe fits…

my brother had a party while i was away, and he let people stay in my room (without even telling me this was happening), and also moved a lot of stuff from downstairs into my room. which honestly, would have been fine, except he cleaned none of it up. i got back after three weeks to an unmade bed, all the things i’d had carefully folded under my bed in a heap under my desk, a massive pile a crap in the corner, crap all over my desk, two step-ladders, an extra desk and an extra chair all in my room, and to top it all off he’s managed to fuck up my amp and it’s not working properly.

and i can’t even get mad at him or tell him to clean it up because he now has glandular fever and can barely move (which i’m sympathetic to and poor him but his party was two weeks ago, before he got sick). and im just feeling very overwhelmed and upset. i have the flu and a ridiculous amount of work to do for pride week, and this sheer enormity of this mess is too overwhelming.

reblog this post to honor Enoby’s brave sacrifice, ignore if you’re a prep or a poser

In a world that has placed lesbians at the bottom of the likelihood-of-happy-ending scale, the femslash community exists as a place where they are at the very top, more likely to survive than the heterosexual couples, where happiness exists by default and love is as simple as, ‘The only two female characters on the entire show are gay, and attracted to each other, and over the course of the story will fall in love.’ —
