do you remember the first time you were called annoying?
how your breath stopped short in your chest
the way the light drained from your eyes, though you knew your cheeks were ablaze
the way your throat tightened as you tried to form an argument that got lost on your tongue.
your eyes never left the floor that day.
you were 13.
you’re 20 now, and i still see the light fade from your eyes when you talk about your interests for “too long,”
apologies littering every other sentence,
words trailing off a cliff you haven’t jumped from in 7 years.
i could listen to you forever, though i know speaking for more than 3 uninterrupted minutes makes you anxious.
all i want you to know is that you deserve to be heard
for 3 minutes
for 10 minutes
for 2 hours
there will be people who cannot handle your grace, your beauty, your wisdom, your heart;
mostly because they can’t handle their own.
but you will never be
and have never been
"I’m no hero, I put my bra on one boob at a time like everyone else."

baddest female in space y’all
to my lover i will say, if
we come across a god, burn
your eyes right out.
for i will never compare
to that cold sheen of power, to
that blaze of immortality.
but in your darkness, my
skin beneath your hands, i
could be the whole of heaven,
gods and angels and everything
that exists in between. understand: i
just want to feel divine.
My friends are literally telling me that it’s stupid that I care so much about well-written and strongly developed female characters in shows because I don’t have the same level of interest in whether or not a male character is strongly written and that it’s not “equal”
Bruh shut the fuck up there are already too many Strong Male Characters, let the women have a chance!!
This is what I get for ranting about The X~Files and how I think it’s a shame that Scully is almost a wasted character who is only used to further Mulder’s plotline and interests
The sad thing is I know my one friend is only arguing with me because it’s funny for him and my other friend but if we were talking one-on-one he would actually listen to what I have to say and respect my opinions
It’s so brave to play a sassy housewife over an enslaved woman replicating her physical mental and emotional trauma. Jennifer Lawrence seems just like the sloppy rude bitch she played in the movie that ain’t acting lol
this is such bullshit holy fuck
So bold with their bigotry
THEY LITERALLY PUT HER HEAD AT HER FEET
Stop apologizing for the things you enjoy eating.
Stop apologizing for the things you enjoy wearing.
Stop apologizing for how you prefer to spend your day.
Stop apologizing for the things that make you happy.
