Because when I was 13 years old, I was sent home for my tank top straps being a little too thin, but a boy could wear a Cool Story babe, Go Make Me A Sandwich shirt and not be looked at twice.
Because when I was 17 and I told a guy “No” and the next day the word tease was painted on my locker.
Because when I was 18 and just wanted to be friends, I was a bitch.
Because I feel the need to say “I have a boyfriend” instead of “No” because guys respect other men more than they would ever respect me.
Because society screams “don’t get raped” instead of “don’t rape”
Because I am scared to walk alone at 10 PM
Because being beautiful is the most important thing I’ll ever do.
Because when I wear my favorite skirt “I’m asking for it”
Because the song Blurred Lines exists
Because no means no no matter how you fucking spin it
Because a girl was drugged and raped with a beer bottle, and the boys who did it are out on bail.
Because I owe you nothing
Because pepper spray is a gift I receive yearly.
Because I am asked if I have a boyfriend more than I am asked about my mental health
Because my clothes say more about my consent then my mouth does.
Because the wage gap exists
Because “not all men are like that” is said way too often
Because I feel the need to say “I’m not a feminist but…”
Because I’m writing this fucking piece—When you ask why I’m angry? (via brennanat)
Marriage, relationships and commitments scares me.
How do one decide that they are fully and whole committed to another. What happens if “shit happens” cause one to think otherwise.
What happens to that commitment? Does it automatically erases that particular commitment just cause shit happens?
Or how one declares he or her loves another. Love is a strong word. Love shouldn’t be momentarily. Not in the moment. Not that day only or that year. Even if shit happens, love should be constant. That is my version of commitment. Not a bunch of words said at the altar and not followed through. If you love someone. Tell them. And be prepared to love them through thick and thin. Not for this week, this year or this decade. Cause marriage lasts a lifetime. Don’t say it if you don’t mean it. And don’t hang onto her/him if you can’t do that.
블랙접시 스시 Blackdish Sushi 6pcs @ 스시포차 기다스시 in Itaewon area of Seoul, South Korea. This is a very famous, small Sushi / Japanese eatery, and was featured on “Tasty Road”!
There’s an unusual place in the world where you can drink coffee in a building that’s shaped like an enormous Rolleiflex camera. Located about six miles east of Seoul, South Korea, the Dreaming Camera Cafe is two-storey building that’s both a coffee shop and a miniature camera museum. The unique combination makes this place a must-visit if you’re a fan of photography and lattes.

Ok so today I went to run some errands at Ikea Alexandra and I didn’t intend to buy this plush dog at first but I eventually felt SO compelled to take Alexander (yes, the male variant of the place’s name) home. I’ve never owned a soft toy and my parents won’t let me keep a real dog so I decided to introduce Alexander to my bed. Woof woof.
After this post, it will be hard to convince others you’re not gay. Hahahaha oh Daniel.

too powerful not to reblog
While every girl and boy is chasing after someone else out there.
Hoping to find someone to hold them tight
and maybe be their last love.
I’m here secured in Your arms.
You spoil me like a child and love me like a lover.
How to find someone else like You.
You raise the bars for the future men in my life.
You make me feel like i deserve more.
And for that, i thank You. I thank You for loving me, for spoiling me.
