Always the same

So fucking powerful.

One of the BEST ad campaigns about representation I have seen.

Everyone has a backbone. Use yours.

Day of silence for the lgbt community and those going through self harm. 

The world would be very boring if we were all the same so be yourself and be proud of who you are.

I love you all and stay strong

verbal abuse & bullying is not ‘freedom of speech’

all boobs are good boobs

all stomachs are good stomachs

all thighs are good thighs 

all bodies are good bodies

yes yours, too, and don’t you forget it

an actual thing my thirteen year old brother just said

if girls are asking to be raped because their clothes don't completely cover all of their bodies, then boys are asking to be kicked in the balls just because they don't wear cups everywhere.

So, maybe we’re the
generation of the selfie,
but we’re also the generation
that grew up in a tainted,
Photoshopped world
with every impossible beauty standard
shoved down our throat
through a tube
because eating has become
a guilty pleasure
and condemning beauty ideals
won’t go straight to our thighs.

And if, by chance,
we are able to destroy the
demons that you’ve planted
inside of us with your
constant advertisements and rules
that play behind our eyelids and
take root in our brains,
then let us take our fucking pictures
and capture that moment when
we felt beautiful because all this world
has taught us is that
our beauty is the greatest
measure of our worth.

Scoff at our phones all you like,
these delicate extensions of
our fingers, but know that
through this technology
that you couldn’t even
begin to understand,
we have smudged the entire
world with our fingerprints.
We are the generation of knowledge,
and we are learning more than
any that came before us.
So, frown at my typing fingers;
I am using them to grasp power
by the throat.

Try to invalidate us,
but we’ve heard our
parents talking about
the world’s crashing and burning
since we had sprung from the womb.
We know you’ve fucked up,
and we’re angry about it-
the kind of anger that
fuels knowledge,
that I feel in my veins every time
I read the news from my phone
before school,
that sticks in my throat like honey
in a debate;
the kind of anger that simmers,
that sharpens teeth into daggers,
that makes this generation more dangerous
than you could have ever imagined.

We are the generation of change,
and goddammit, we’re coming.

Emily Palermo, An Open Letter to the Men Who Told Me to Stay Out of Adult Conversations (via starredsoul)

(via underthestarshetookmyhand)


So I was watching this, because Venus Angelic shared it on facebook and this particular part really broke my heart. 

Emily (or Luna as she calls her doll personality) says in this programme that she feels more confident and that she loves herself more when she dresses up as a doll (in cute clothes, lots of the outfits that were shown in the episode were less exteme than the one she’s wearing for this confrontation with her stepmother). 

And when she wants to share this with her family, they look at her as if she was a freak. That is not okay. It’s okay for them to think: “Wow, that looks different” or even “This is not my particular style and I do not like this look.” but saying to your daughter/step daughter or even a fucking friend that you want to see the “beautiful” version of them by stripping them of what makes them confident (in this case Luna’s wig) is not fucking okay. 

I know this is coming as something that doesn’t match my blog at all, but I really can’t stress enough that dolly girls and boys mostly don’t dress up for you to judge, but for us to have confidence and feel beautiful, which Luna obviously does when she’s in her wig and lashes. 

This is a creative outlet. Nobody says “Can you stop painting so we can see the real you?” or “Can you stop playing football so we can see the real you?” 

Gosufhsh this just makes me frustrated and I’m happy TLC actually for once made the “weird one” look in the right. This programme could have been made very differently and I think it’s a great showcase of some of the beautiful dolly people that live among us - they even got a boy in there, which is something I’ve personally never seen before!
