    I know girls who are trying to fit into the social norm
    Like squeezing into last year’s prom dress
    I know girls who are low-rise, MAC eyeshadow, and binge drinking
    I know girls that wonder if they’re disaster and sexy enough to fit in
    I know girls who are fleeing bombs from the mosques of their skin
    Playing Russian roulette with death
    It’s never easy to accept that our bodies are fallible and flawed
    But when do we draw the line?
    When the knife hits the skin?
    Isn’t it the same thing as purging?
    Because we’re so obsessed with death
    Some women just have more guts than others
    The funny thing is women like us don’t shoot
    We swallow pills, still wanting to be beautiful at the morgue
    Still proceeding to put on make-up
    Still hoping that the mortician finds us fuckable and attractive
    We might as well be buried with our shoes
    And handbags and scarves, girls
    We flirt with death every time we etch a new tally mark into our skin
    I know how to split my wrists to reveal a battlefield too
    But the time has come for us to
    Reclaim our bodies
    Our bodies deserve more than to be war-torn and collateral
    Offering this fuckdom as a pathetic means to say
    “I only know how to exist when I’m wanted”

    Girls like us are hardly ever wanted you know
    We’re used up and sad and drunk and
    Perpetually waiting by the phone for someone to pick up
    And tell us that we did good
    You did good.

    So try this
    Take your hands over your bumpy lovebody naked
    And remember the first time you touched someone
    With the sole purpose of learning all of them
    Touched them because the light was pretty on them
    And the dust in the sunlight danced the way your heart did
    Touch yourself with a purpose
    Your body is the most beautiful royal
    Fathers and uncles are not claiming your knife anymore
    Are not your razor, no
    Put the sharpness back
    Lay your hands flat and feel the surface of scarred skin


    I once touched a tree with charred limbs
    The stump was still breathing
    But the tops were just ashy remains
    I wonder what it’s like to come back from that
    Sometimes I feel a forest fire erupting from my wrists
    And the smoke signals sent out are the most beautiful things
    I’ve ever seen


    Love your body the way your mother loved your baby feet
    And brother, arm wrapping shoulders, and remember
    This is important
    You are worth more than who you fuck
    You are worth more than a waistline
    You are worth more than any naked body could proclaim
    In the shadows, more than a man’s whim
    Or your father’s mistake
    You are no less valuable as a size 16, than a size 4
    You are no less valuable as a 32A than a 36C
    Your sexiness is defined by concentric circles within your wood
    Wisdom
    You are a goddamn tree stump with leaves sprouting out
    Reborn

My AP Psych teacher from high school keeps binders and notebooks with dicks drawn on them to use as visual aids for the Freudian unit.
One time she did this life changing little “experiment” where she ever so calmly asked guys why they draw penises on things. They tried to say “it’s just funny” or “you don’t understand” and she just kept saying “you’re right, I don’t understand. Explain to me. You already know what a penis looks like, why do you have to draw it on things? Are you marking it? Are you tagging it? Girls don’t draw vaginas on things.” And the guys suddenly started questioning their motives for everything they do and one guy was like “ms, stop talking about penises, you’re making us uncomfortable.” And she shouted “HOW DO YOU THINK WE FEEL SEEING DICKS DRAWN ON STUFF ALL THE TIME?”

YAAASSSSS

Somebody give this woman an award.

    "To Miss Hermione Jean Granger, I leave my copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard, in hope that she will find it entertaining and instructive.”

they outlawed this move just because she was the only woman who could do it. 
Surya Bonaly was infamous for (among other things) doing aone blade backflip in the 1998 Olympics, and is the ONLY figure skater who’s ever pulled that off. Not just the only woman, the only figure skater PERIOD. There’s like all ofthree Olympic-class male skaters who did backflips in their routines, and NONE of them could do it one blade.
But wait, there’s more.
Backflips were banned from the 1976 Olympics onward on the official justification that skating jumps are supposed to be landed on one blade, whereas backflips are landed on both blades. The unofficial justification was it was too dangerous, both to the athlete and to the rink — if you didn’t land it perfectly, you could not only break your ankle, but also punch THROUGH the ice surface.
Surya Bonaly was openly contemptuous of the figure skating judges, because they were a bunch of openly racist white men who always screwed her over by giving her lower scores than she deserved. That one-blade backflip was her ultimate FUCK YOU! to the Olympics judges, because she took an “illegal” backflip and made it legal by landing it on one blade. Pretty much DARING them to mark her down for being epic awesome and pulling a move that their precious coddled white girls didn’t have the guts to even think about.
They did, of course. White racism knows no bounds. But she utterly owned them with that move.
not only did she do a fucking backflip and land, she landed then went right into a triple loop. like holy fuck

This girl is an unknown hero.

One-blade back flip. Cooler than giving the middle finger since 1976.
