Of course, the ultimate moment of being Female in Public comes when a woman, deep in thought, is told by a strange man to SMILE. (And this happens only to women.) Gentlemen, let’s get this straight. There is no part of my body that belongs to you, not even my facial expression.
From a devastating essay from Laura Lippman, author, about what it’s like to be a woman in public.  (via emilyvgordon)

Hey, everyone here’s a gentle reminder to please go donate to the making of this documentary about beauty standards in Korea.  It’s a pretty important film (in fact, I see people here reblogging gifs from the preview constantly without knowing where it’s from) and yet they still haven’t received enough money to make it in the foreseeable future.  At the very least, signal boost.    

I am signal boosting this with bated breath because I know how very little women of color are considered in white women’s feminism, and it makes me sad.  

This is important to me because toxic beauty standards don’t apply equally to “all women”, nor does the laws of the patriarchy apply equally to “all women”.  Simply put, white women have it easy.  They are not and will never be put down for being white.  For being women, sure, but not for being white.  But black girls?  Asian girls?  Latinas?  Indigenous women?  Bi-racial women?  

How much do white feminists understand the power of misogyny and racism combined?  How much do you understand the extremity of white privilege, of white supremacy?  

Or better yet, do you care?

Like don’t get me wrong, I love bookish, eloquent, sarcastic, dry, “actually I think you’ll find [reels off long list of facts]” Ferre, but what about excitable, mile-a-minute, tangential, “HOLY SHIT HAVE YOU SEEN HOW COOL THIS THING IS?!” Ferre? I mean like half of his introduction is just a list of things he has been enthusiastic about recently. The brick literally says he ‘grew excited about a lecture.’ You know who does that? Fucking nerds.

the sweetest thing ever done for me: once someone stayed up with me all night because I was too upset to sleep. also last year my friend gave me my favorite kind of chocolate for christmas and I was v surprised they had remembered since I mentioned it in passing. both of those were actually p gross relationships though so—I think it’s really sweet when people send me things that remind them of me
