I really needed to feel more lonely lately.
Having a baby is so weird, it’s like suddenly there’s this person that used to not exist? And now they’re going to be a whole person with thoughts and feelings and they’ll make art and read poetry and drink fruit punch and they used to not Be at all

Duncan Trussell likes to talk about vaginas being portals.
But people have made fanfics about the people involved and…
“…Yes, they had been arguing, [Jovan] Belcher and his girlfriend, but in my work as an activist, including around gender violence prevention, I’ve seen the tragic pattern across our nation of men who, in the heat of rage, have killed their girlfriends, wives or lovers, as if they had no other vocabulary or emotion to deal with the disagreement or the break-up.

Chelsea Coreen - “Fart”
“But how @%^# up are our standards of beauty, or gender constructs… that we make little girls hold in their farts until no one is around to smell them”
“When I used to visit my grandmother in the hospital she would make me apply her red lipstick for her - she said she couldn’t be seen without it.”

I also hate when I’ll tell men that I can’t trust men
and they’ll react in some way like “damn girl who hurt you”
as if my reactions, my hypervigilance, my mistrust came from just one man’s actions
and not the sum of all of the actions
how men act in groups
how men behave everyday
In the Sims, you don’t say, “I love you.” You say, “Habadu bashubi,” which roughly translates to, “I cannot move because there is furniture in the way.” I think that’s absolutely beautiful.
