I hate that feeling you get when you’re about to go to bed, but then you lay down and start thinking about things. Who are your real friends? Who’s going to be there for you when you really need it? Are you worth it? Then you start to over think and you can’t stop and you think about everything that’s going on in your life and you feel like crying.
"We live in a country where politicians call rape a “gift from God” and suggest that women regularly lie about being raped. Where a group of young men in high school think so little of sexual assault that they thought it was fine—hilarious, even—to post pictures online of a passed out rape victim, and to live-tweet the rape, joking about the victim being urinated on. We live in a country where media as revered as The New York Times finds it necessary to describe an 11-year-old gang rape victim as “wearing makeup and fashions more appropriate to a woman in her 20s.” Where a woman can be fired because her boss finds her “irresistable” and a woman’s rape case falls flat because she isn’t married. It’s time to acknowledge that the rape epidemic in the United States is not just about the crimes themselves, but our own cultural and political willful ignorance. Rape is as American as apple pie—until we own that, nothing will change" — America’s Rape Problem: We Refuse to Admit That There Is One | The Nation (via bad-girl-panties)

"No one is a slut. “Slut” is a made-up word to keep women from having as much fun as men. A person who enjoys sex is just a person and a person who is a virgin is also just a person and everyone should lay off each other’s sex lives. Retire the word “slut” please." — 20 Things We Need To Stop Talking About In 2013 (via maarkhoppus)
