Every time I see Jennifer Lawrence on my dash I roll my eyes because she seems like such a try hard. Always trying to seem “funny” and “quirky” and “lol so relatable”. Just seems so fake to me, even her wardrobe “malfunctions” and “accidental” falling. It seems all strategically done and a created persona like Zooey Deshanel.
There are many female actresses who simply are funny and quirky and relatable without it seeming so put on like Rebel Wilson, Aubrey Plaza, Ellen Degeneres, Mindy Kaling, Nicki Minaj, Emma Stone ect, ect.
six things every girl will ALWAYS have in her purse:
- another smaller purse
- an aging picture of ringo starr
- a six pack of heineken
- the complete box set of every season of Deadliest Catch
- the hat you thought you lost at Disneyland when you were 5
- a tiny, infinitely dense marble that contains our own universe
"We teach females that in relationships, compromise is what women do. We raise girls to see each other as competitors, not for jobs or for accomplishments— which I think can be a good thing— but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are. If we have sons, we don’t mind knowing about our sons’ girlfriends, but our daughters boyfriends? ‘God forbid!’ But of course when the time is right, we expect those girls to bring back the perfect man to be their husband. We police girls, we praise girls for virginity, but we don’t praise boys for virginity. And it’s always made me wonder how exactly this is supposed to work out because *laughs* the loss of virginity is usually a process that involves *laughs*…
We teach girls shame. ‘Close your legs!’ ‘Cover yourself!’ We make them feel as though by being born female, they are already guilty of something. And so, girls grow up to be women who cannot say they have desire. They grow up to be women who silence themselves. They grow up to be women who cannot say what they truly think. And they grow up—and this is the worst thing we do to girls—they grow up to be women who have turned pretense into an artform."
It’s annoying when men tell me to smile. It’s even more annoying when women tell me to smile.
I have many reasons to smile, but you telling me to isn’t one of them.
While talking about customer service my teacher (who is a woman) said something in class (which is full of other women) along the lines of ‘you’re a girl you’re suppose to smile!’
I literally laughed out loud. It REALLY bothers me hearing that shit from other women.
"Swear to God, I can’t stand to hear a woman claim that she thinks like a guy and hates women because they’re all catty. That’s misogyny. The very fact that you, as a woman, think differently than how a socially-stereotyped woman is supposed to think is proof that our gender “norms” are fucking us over. Women are not all alike. Some of us like football. Some of us like talking on the phone. Some of us like religion. Some of us are emotional. Some of us speak three languages. Some of us have boyfriends. Some of us have girlfriends. Some of us wear lipstick. Some of us don’t shave our pits. Some of us have kids. Some of us worry we’ll drop our best friend’s baby. Now please stop claiming that you don’t act like a woman. It doesn’t make you a special fucking snowflake. It makes you a perpetrator of misogyny."
#just a thought
I’ve been going out more regularly to EDM events with friends and out and about shopping and running errands by myself. Its really awkward how much attention I’m getting.
I know I’m attractive and I standout sometimes being the only black girl, the way I dress or my hair but sometimes its really awkward and alarming. Some dudes, especially at shows, can get aggressive. Pulling at me and shit and trying to grind up on me with their halfies. And then sometimes I get the completely random dude while I’m at the mall who just HAS to stop me and talk to me about how ____ I am, how nice my ___ is, ask me REALLY horribly personal questions and I can’t get away. This has happened to me at least once or twice while I was out alone.
I wish I had more female friends to go shopping with so I don’t feel like the next time a dude hits on me in the store he’s gonna follow me out to my car… >_>
Plus I talk to myself while I shop and I don’t wanna look cray-cray But I also wish this wasn’t the norm for other women out there because its pretty ridiculous.
