Alright, here’s something funny. These boys in my hall went outside in their undies to take some photos in the snow. Funny, right? They’re trying to get attention and it’s hilarious. Us ladies choose to do the same, we are wearing more clothing, and are doing the exact same poses. We are wearing as much clothing as is acceptable at the pool or the beach, at the gym, etc.
There is a serious double standard here— us girls have gotten responses like:
"What’s the point of being half naked?"
"*ahem* sluts *ahem*"
"What’s wrong with you females?"
Or worse, what my mother said. Her initial shock was apparently because she thought I was in my underwear, but when I told her I was in a swimsuit, she was suddenly happy I was having fun in college.
The idea here is that we are doing the same thing. When arguing this point with one of my hallmates, he said “But men’s bodies aren’t built the same, you don’t see girls getting pumped up over a topless guy, but how many guys do you think are gonna get all crazy over a topless girl?” Seriously? Really? Women don’t need to dress in order to avoid a reaction from men. You’re mad because you can’t control yourself? Men can pose in their undies in the snow without an issue because women aren’t going to go wild over it? Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours.
The double standards are killin’ me.
"Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours." Is literally one of the best quotes I’ve ever heard. Thank you.
And society defines the first two as satanic
okay so remember how sierra mentioned that chris was in a boy band back in the 80’s. chris was born in 1978, meaning the oldest he could possibly be during the boy band is 11. eleven years old. thats. pretty messed up„,
Chris at age 11 (???)
Either Sierra meant to say the 90’s or Chris is lying about his age
chris is immortal
Jesus Christ. I hope these are legit because some of these are raising FABULOUS questions.
you know, my mom told me that when i was little i used to tell her recurring tidbits of a linear series of events from “when i was older”
she mentioned me pointing an old man and getting really excited and saying “hey that man was my student when i used to teach piano!” in a situation, or saying “you know i like you more than my other mom, she was so mean” and my personal favourite is the one where i said “i used to have a gilrfriend once, you know, we were on my motorcyle and i lost control and fell off a cliff on the roadside, i really hope she’s okay”
Children are scary as fuck.
I need to stay away
Wasn’t there a post going around about how maybe the ‘Light at the end of the Tunnel’ that people go to when they die is the opening of the womb when we’re born? And we gradually forget our previous lives as we grow older? Because that post combined with this post scares the living crap outta me.
My mom says that before she realized she was pregnant with my brother, four year old me ran up excitedly going “Mommy I just saw God hiding over there! He said there’s a baby in you! I hope its a little sister!”
And a week later she found out she was three months pregnant.
A while later she says i sadly walked up and went “I wanted a baby sister, but its gonna be a baby brother.” And then wandered back to my toys.
My mom tells me once that when I was like 3, I don’t remember what she said I was responding to, but apparently I said
"Remember? Back when I was big and you was little."
Also, I apparently said a lot of creepy things, like knowing what my Grandpa always did in the car exactly without ever being in the car w/ him, that kind of thing.
Little kids are scary as fuck.
When my little sister was just a baby we would take her into her room to change her diaper. She would always stare into the corner of the ceiling across the room and even try to look around us while we changed her. Finally when she first started learning how to talk she was staring at the same spot and said in the most sympathetic voice, “why are you crying?”
To the empty corner of the room.
Apparently I used to ask the same thing to empty corners when I was little.
My mum told me about one night when my older brother was a little kid. He was calling for her and sounded really scared and when she rushed in he was sitting in his bed and just staring. She tried to ask him what was the matter but he just looked over her her and pointed into the corner behind her and asked “Who is that?..”
Also, apparently have a lot of very exact memories I shouldn’t have about things that happened long before :D And other stuff

Sam, Cas, and Dean walk past the Mirror of Erised and pause to look in.
Sam sees himself with Jess, both holding university diplomas, engagement rings on left hands.
Castiel sees his true form, towering high with majestic wings, protecting the world from evil.
Dean sees the reflection of himself, his brother, and his best friend.
He thinks it’s just a normal mirror.
go sit in the fucking corner
Shooting “Bad girls” - because we love seeing different body types close together. Diversity <3
If only diversity included POC and maybe someone with a disability.
How are these “different body types”? All white, all able-bodied, all cis-women, all hourglass shaped, all flat bellies, all full breasted, no visible scars or blemishes, all fully made up…
Diversity - you keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means.
Guys heres the fucking thing there all pale but diffrent skin tones and they all look they are Caucasian mix if not pale latino(left) or asian(middle). Also the one on the middle dose have a muffin top and like guys really its more offensive to the girls in the picture than the person who took the photo. And diversity means not all cookie cutter the same so yes there is diversity because no two are the same hip legs chest or face or hair type for that matter than the rest, though they are all pale they are not all white.
