“Go after her. Fuck, don’t sit there and wait for her to call, go after her because that’s what you should do if you love someone, don’t wait for them to give you a sign cause it might never come, don’t let people happen to you, don’t let me happen to you, or her, she’s not a fucking television show or tornado. There are people I might have loved had they gotten on the airplane or run down the street after me or called me up drunk at four in the morning because they need to tell me right now and because they cannot regret this and I always thought I’d be the only one doing crazy things for people who would never give enough of a fuck to do it back or to act like idiots or be entirely vulnerable and honest and making someone fall in love with you is easy and flying 3000 miles on four days notice because you can’t just sit there and do nothing and breathe into telephones is not everyone’s idea of love but it is the way I can recognize it because that is what I do. Go scream it and be with her in meaningful ways because that is beautiful and that is generous and that is what loving someone is, that is raw and that is unguarded, and that is all that is worth anything, really.”—Harvey Milk (via girlmeetsbanjo)
I think women need to pay attention to what is going on right now. I see Tumblr user upon Tumblr user re-blogging photos of Rihanna and Chris Brown every day, and it has to stop. As women, we need to recognize that physical beauty doesn’t forgive the message these two people are sending to the world..the complete mockery they are making of a serious issue.
Rihanna is not your role model, please stop trying to make her that for you. We deserve much better women to look up (and we have them! They are everywhere!). She is not one of them.
Domestic violence isn’t forgivable…it surely should not be just because the two involved are celebrities.
“I brake for birds. I rock a lot of polka dots. I have touched glitter in the last 24 hours. I spend my entire day talking to children. And I find it fundamentally strange that you’re not a dessert person. It freaks me out. I’m sorry that I don’t talk like Murphy Brown. And I hate your pants suit. I wish it had ribbons on it or something just to make it slightly cuter but that doesn’t mean I’m not smart and tough and strong.”—
I love February 14! I’ll be doing a super cute mani today and posting some pics a little later. Yay! May you all feel some love today…from anyone, And be grateful for it! there are too many people in the world who live without love entirely. Hug your mom, dad and brother (you better have sent your mom flowers or something!) and be thankful you have some love.
“If there’s one thing I wish I’d learned at 18, it’s that it’s okay if a crazy person hates you. Everyone else will understand in time. Meanwhile, let them expend that energy. Go work on your novel or whatever.”—
