Describes my life.
Being queer doesn’t excuse you from privilege. You can be a white queer racist, a queer male misogynist, a cis queer trans*phobe, a wealthy queer classist, or any number of other oppressive things and the sooner you educate yourself to this the better off our whole community will be, because contrary to media depiction, queer people aren’t all white middle-class gay men!
Yeah, I’ll say it - this universal call to action for women of the world to “love themselves” is overrated.
Strive for self contentment, be kind to yourself, be critical of media, remain vigilant in seeking empowerment and positivity when you can, form a relationship with your body, live well by your own standards, and by all means - love yourself, if that is within your grasp.
But if you can not find self love, for whatever reason and however long, know that you are not part of the problem.
You have been affected.
Unlearning the hate is hard work, but once we learn how to dismantle the inner-workings of a society and culture that permeates and surrounds our very existence, we can stand a chance of knocking it down.
In the meantime, don’t force it - stop blaming yourself for not “loving your body” enough.
You can not possibly be at fault, when the oppressive culture we live in is the main offender.

Realist shit you’ll ever read.
This is funny, but that MIT be because of how sadly accurate this is. I see that same on men every time I walk on the sidewalk… anywhere.
Everyone please repeat after me:
You can be genderfluid and not appear androgynous
You do not have to wear your gender/genderfluidity/agender in a socially acceptable manner only.
You do not have to meet other peoples standard of what your gender looks/acts/sounds like.

gives me chills
He didn’t do a damn thing wrong
I’m gonna reblog this every time I see it because never forget.
Might I also add that “coming out” like this is brave as fuck.
I don’t understand - help me.
When did abortion become something to be proud of, to celebrate, and to venerate with symbolism?
It’s not about pride - it’s about erasing the negative stigma around having an abortion. 1 in 3 women* will have an abortion - it’s okay to speak up about it!
^^ Yes. There’s nothing wrong with being proud about your abortion. Whether you shout it from the roof tops are never tell anyone it’s your story, you shouldn’t feel shamed by stigma.
^^^ yes! It is not ABOUT pride, it is about telling the world there is nothing to be ashamed of. It is telling the world you can feel however you damn well please! 1 in 3 women. Yet how many do you know who are public about it? Women are afraid to speak, and that needs to change.
Honestly I think these women should be proud. They made a difficult choice and are standing beside it and they more then deserve to feel proud of it. Speaking out about having abortion is hard and in some cases dangerous and can cost you a lot.
