The perks of being inlove
As women, we are taught to be tiny. To have small bodies, to never be imposing. The ideal of our gender are thin and childlike, hairless and dainty. We are defined by our bodies; defined by our control over them. We are taught to obsess over our physicality and to be repulsed by our desires and intelligences.
We are taught to walk scared late at night. We cradle our keys between our perfectly manicured fingers, walking gracefully like a baby antelope in a herd of lions. That our virginity defines our character. That I am a frigid bitch if I do not fuck him, and a dirty slut if I do. Michelle K., The Truth About Growing Up A Woman.  (via fawun)

The first gay marriage proposal in the White House. An active duty U.S. Marine Corps captain made history over the weekend by becoming the first gay man to pop the question to his partner at the White House.
In the photo: Matthew Phelps proposing to his partner, Ben Schock. Congrats to the couple, and may their journey be happier than ever.

this is beautiful to see


Love this
If I told you the truth, would you even try to understand? I’ve tried to hold you so close, but now I wish I never let you in. More? (via yanilavigne)

Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way. More? (via yanilavigne)
