my new hair colour makes me twice the twink i was before
being an introvert is really hard because there is no polite way to tell someone that you’re in a bad mood because you’re exhausted from socializing.
ngl i send people anon love a lot because
if when they think the way i speak/type things is weird then at least they actually dont know who i am
i am thankful for tumblr and selfie culture because i have the ability to just open my web browser and visually experience a diversity of bodies and looks, being presented the way they want to be, in a way i never had growing up.
seeing fat women, curvy women, women of color, queer women, controlling their image and oozing self love and adoration has seriously inspired me to change my motivations from changing my appearance to fit a socially constructed ideal to changing my outlook to fit myself.
in some ways, it saddens me that i have to put forth so much extra effort to surround myself with diverse images of women, and that i have seriously had to bombard myself with them for any internalization of body positivity to take place, but ultimately i’m thankful for every moment of unlearning of the confinements of patriarchal beauty, because that unlearning has been absolutely central in my progress on a path to self-acceptance and love.

do you ever just get a vibe that someone has a crush on you and then you’re not sure if they actually do or if you’re just really really self-absorbed
1. If you don’t like the way he kisses you, you won’t like the way he fucks you. Get up and leave.
2. If he won’t go down on you, but expects you to go down on him, laugh. Get up and leave.
3. If you don’t want to do something and he doesn’t respect that, slap him round the face. Get up and leave.
4. If he isn’t okay with the imperfections on your skin, if he says they turn him off, get up and leave.
5. If you don’t want to shave your legs and he thinks that’s disgusting and refuses to touch them, get up and leave.
6. If he doesn’t see your body as a masterpiece, as a complete work of art, get up and leave.
7. If he makes you feel uncomfortable about any part of your body, get up and leave.
i had so much coffee i’m gonna fight the roman empire just watch me
And here they are:
Thermoception: Ability to sense heat and cold. Thermoceptors in the brain are used for monitoring internal body temperature.
Proprioception: The sense of where your body parts are located relevant to each other.
Chronoception: Sense of the passing of time. Your body has an internal clock.
Equilibrioception: The sense that allows you to keep your balance and sense body movement in terms of acceleration and directional changes.
Magentoception: This is the ability to detect magnetic fields. Unlike most birds, humans do not have a strong magentoception, however, experiments have demonstrated that we do tend to have some sense of magnetic fields.
Tension Sensors: These are found in such places as your muscles and allow the brain the ability to monitor muscle tension.
Nociception: In a word, pain. This was once thought to simply be the result of overloading other senses, such as “touch”, but it has it’s own unique sensory system. There are three distinct types of pain receptors: cutaneous (skin), somatic (bones and joints), and visceral (body organs).
False rape accusations are an anomaly.
True rape accusations are a norm.
You’re, quite literally, more likely to be killed by a comet than falsely accused of rape.
Re-blog now, read later.
"Because 1 in 33 men will be raped in his lifetime, men are 82,000x more likely to be raped than falsely accused of rape. It seems many of us would do well to pay more attention to how rape culture affects us all than be paranoid about false accusers.”
LM 69 minute prompts day 28, characters playing a board game! Joly and Grantaire cannot believe that sheer luck results in one smug jerk winning so many games in a row, Bossuet can believe anything about random chance as long as he’s not winning, and Bahorel is probably cheating like anything but hey, making everyone prove it is part of the game, right?
