let me just say a few things about ‘all about that bass’ real quick

  1. it’s a song about body positivity and we don’t get many of those so can we just take that into consideration please
  2. i know people are kicking off about her using the phrase “skinny bitches” but she does follow it up with "no, i’m just playing i know you think you’re fat / but i’m here to tell you that / every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top"  she’s taken an insult commonly given to slim women and basically a said so what if you are skinny/skinny but you think you’re fat, YOU’RE STILL PERFECT 
  3. i’ve seen shit loads of people saying it makes them feel more confident, and slim women get a ton of media reinforcing the idea that their body is perfect anyway
  4. IT’S CATCHY AS FUCK

shout out to people who are scared to call others out, whose hands shake when they try to explain what’s wrong, whose throats threaten to close up with thoughts of ‘what if i’m just overreacting’, whose hearts are pounding out of their chests because they just stuck their necks out for their beliefs, who have lost friends and respect and safety for aligning themselves with causes

I have two daughters, so I’m raising two future women. Maybe! I mean, one of them might be a guy later. It’s possible. It could happen. Someday one of my daughters could be like ‘Dad, I’m really a guy’ and I’ll be like ‘Alright well let’s get you a dick, honey. We’ll get you the nicest dick in town.’

Somewhere along the way, Louis CK became society’s ideal father and I’m 100% okay with this.

If you support gay marriage reblog this. If you’re on the homophobic side, keep scrolling.

As a bisexual, it sickens me that some people WILL keep scrolling.

As the straight daughter of a gay man, it sickens me that some people will keep scrolling. 

As a straight girl with a basic understanding of equality and love, it also sickens me that people will keep scrolling.

As a straight Christian woman, I pray that people will not scroll past this. Love, not judge.

I’m re-reblogging for that last one.

So, a lot of people don’t understand what rape culture is, so I’m going to give you all a little lesson.

Rape culture centers around blaming the victim of sexual assault, rather than the assaulter themselves. 

And that is wrong.

The top picture is me now, and me in third grade.  I was raped almost every school day for the whole of that year.  

Rape culture is my mom asking me, “Did you ask for it?”

Rape culture is I, the victim, asking myself if I was.

Rape culture is people assuming that I was “asking for it” due to my choice of clothes, and what I said and how I acted.

I remember how I asked my rapist every day, to stop, and how I begged my parents to not send me to school.  I remember trying to kill myself in order to escape this terrible fucking reality.  I remember the long, sleepless nights where I’d cry at 2 AM and run to the bathroom to vomit because I was so fucking scared. 

Rape culture is I, the victim, telling myself despite all of this, that I must have asked for it.

Rape culture is an anon messaging me and telling me that I must have dressed provocatively.

And to this, I ask you, “Was my jacket zipper not pulled up far enough?”

Rape culture is having people repeat the words of my rapist years down the line to me, telling me, just like she said to me all those years ago, that I’m a bad person for being raped.  Rape culture is being told that I deserved this.  Rape culture is telling me that it doesn’t matter how many goddamn times it happened.

That is rape culture.

And rape culture is wrong.

JESUS FUCKING CHRIST THE NOTES I’M CRYING

This needs a hell of a lot more notes, my friend.
