My favourite painting ever. ‘intimacy’ by Agnes Cecile

(Source: enjoui, via young-ruuffian)

"Intimacy is based on shared vulnerability…nothing deepens intimacy like the experiences that we share when we feel flayed, with our skins off, scared and vulnerable, and our partner is there with us, willing to share in the scary stuff."

Dossie Easton & Catherine A. Liszt

This speaks to me.

Do not teach your daughters to be ‘pretty.’

Do not entomb her in a pretty pink tower
and insist that only the degree of her physical appeal
may set her free.
Teach her to fight her way out,
to consume books and spit knowledge
to lesser boys who insist she is just beautiful
and nothing more.

Teach her to love her body
not to manipulate and put a price tag on herself
as a defined worth
she shall be immeasurable
she shall be more than this.

Do not let her break herself down
when the boy in kindergarden hits her
because he likes her.
What are you really teaching her?
Pain and love are not synonymous
neither are pretty and perfection.

Teach her to be kind
to be harsh
to be demure
to be wild
to be sensitive
to be thick-skinned

But good god,

Do not teach your daughters to be ‘pretty.’

oh o.O


award for best coachella tweet goes to dennys

Man Coachella was so much fun when I went like three years ago (holy shit, that was THREE YEARS ago), and although it was starting to get bro-y and stuff, now I see how terrible it’s gotten with people wearing headdresses and sporting bindis and how it’s all about the fashion and which celebrity is there and ~omg wat is cultural approriation, no i m not ignorant i just luv the culture, omg wait wuz tht queen Bey???!? I need a pic 4 tumblr/facebook~ that it’s almost embarassing to say that i went and loved it so much.

Music festivals are awesome because sun + music + a bunch of other people who love the same music is an awesome combo but this is what they’re becoming now and it’s disheartening :(

All in all: yay Denny’s.

"Schools have classes called “women’s studies,” and “African-American literature” because the standard for existence set by white men has yet to be rescinded in this age. “Normal” history is the history of a certain class of white people, from the perspective of men. All the other histories are precisely that: other."
