    i mean sure but my father is emotionally and verbally abusive, was physically abusive towards my mother for many years, has the emotional tact of a slice of bread, cannot empathize, he manipulates everyone constantly, he has severe sociopathic tendencies (literally he’s a sociopath minus the murder and the pedophilia), is extremely misogynistic—thinks he “owns” my mother, always made me feel less than my brothers because i’m a girl, is probably the reason i have trouble expressing physical “affection” to anyone close to me in my life, is one of the reasons i have trouble trusting men period. i have to rewire my brain now because i’ve learned that getting angry is the only way to get people to listen, which has fucked up how many of my relationships. i don’t have a father man i’ve never had a father, he’s never been THERE for me, do you understand that, i can’t talk to him about anything, he told me when i was younger he doesn’t care if i love him, as long as i listen to him, as long as i fear him, and that’s FUCKED UP. but yeah you’re right i’m sooo lucky to live with him, can’t imagine what my life would be like without this constant stress and intimidation. UGH I’M BEING AN ASSHOLE. sorry it’s really nothing against you but i hear this a lot and it’s sad and confusing for me to have people telling me to “be grateful” for the one person that’s made me as empty as i’ve felt. i cry about this shit, i hate to admit it but i do. you think you’re over the fact that your father doesn’t care about you but it honestly affects everything and even though i’m at an age now where i don’t expect anything from him / i’m no longer hoping for anything, it still hurts. idk. bad topic of conversation, i suppose

This post always slaps me in the face

this is my favorite post on this website

    And the danger is that in this move toward new horizons and far directions, that I may lose what I have now, and not find anything except loneliness.

Fuck special snowflakes who think like this.
Gurl bye
Your ass ain’t fucking special because you don’t wear makeup.
You’re not fucking better than the woman with large breasts who wears tank tops.
You’re a piece of shit because you are putting sexist stereotypes onto other women in some anti-feminine bullshit.

If you don’t like it, why’d you comment on it? I think it’s awesome and you’re probably one of the girls up there that wears makeup and shortshorts and tiny tanktops. And most kids today wear makeup because they think they aren’t pretty and need it. So deal with it. And get over yourself.

girl bye.
lemme tell you something: I wear tons of fucking make up. I wear short dresses. I walk around with a face that looks about as fake as it can get outside of a fucking barbie doll. and I like it that way. and, despite what you seem to think, no, it’s not because i think i’m ugly. i just fucking like makeup (and trust, i’ve spent years examining my own motivations and how they’re tied to internalized self-hated, fatphobia and misogyny so don’t EVEN cause you don’t know what you’re talking about).
I also read ravenously; engage in discourse regarding philosphy, art, economics, politics, race, gender, sexuality; make subversive art; and love comics and film and music. I’M A FUCKING PERSON IS WHAT I’M SAYING. 
like how fucking deep is this goddamn image when the spine of the book JUST SAYS THE WORD ‘BOOK’.
this kind of bullshit narrative, other than furthering a misogynistic dichotomy that pits women against each other, is also a complete fucking fallacy. A huge majority of average women DON’T DO THIS. you aren’t the lone plain jane in an army of cake-faced, bottle blonde barbies—if you look around, you’ll see that most women just throw on jeans and tops and very little makeup. 
I get that this kind of shit is an attempt to fight back against media-made images of what womanhood is supposed to be. I get it. (thought isn’t it interesting that the “weirdo” in the picture is still thin and conventionally attractive??)
but attacking other women who you perceive as being stupid or carbon copies because of their fucking appearance doesn’t fight back against shit. it actually does EXACTLY what the patriarchy wants us to do—engenders more hatred and competition between women. 
but you know, whatever, continue to think you’re so goddamn special. i’ll be over here reading AND wearing hot pink lipstick and having a hell of a time doing it.
