A Multi-Function Clip That Hides a Toolbox In Your Hair

Um yes!

I still want to bulk buy these and adonize  batch pink.

Apart from being super cool - which it definitely is - the serrated side cuts through braided rope, and though I haven’t seen it in person I’d be willing to bet money the smallest (“flat phillips”) screwdriver picks handcuffs.
Ladies, this is an escape tool.

Selena Gomez is a beautiful star, she’s just so amazing.

everythingispillows replied to your post“Something about this blog makes me free and loose with curse words…”
I swear about the same in text and IRL. Should probably work on swearing less.
It’s something I’m actively working on as well, because I do it all the time to express sympathy/upset at stuff but there are definitely better ways.

Although, I haven’t really noticed it as a big thing in your posts. Good luck with the endeavour :D

Something about this blog makes me free and loose with curse words compared to my ordinary spoken language and my typed communication elsewhere, so I always have to go back and edit the swearing out of my posts so I don’t look too uncouth b/c I feel like an average of 2 f bombs per post would be too many.

I get all the old white dude atheists confused because they’re all repulsive and use their fame to spout misogyny and islamophobia whilst patting themselves on the back for being so progressive.

Richard Dawkins, a white man, ranks which types of rape and pedophilia he believes are worse, telling those who disagree to “go away and learn how to think.”

I fucking hate Richard Dawkins. I hate him and anyone who tries to defend him.

Why won’t he stop..?

Because he’s a powerful old man who’s been praised his whole life so he thinks everything he says is right and anyone who disagrees with him is just an illogical whiner. He has no empathy and no capacity to think outside his own experiences.
Oh, and people KEEP praising him for it. That helps too. He’d have to drop his shitty attitude if everyone told him he didn’t know what he was talking about. But he still has asshole fanboys egging him on.

It doesn’t even have to be an ‘endorsement’ for this to be a shitty thing to say, it’s a problem to rank rape severity, full stop. You don’t have to take what he’s saying as an ‘endorsement’ to think it’s fucked up, so his entire premise just straw-mans people’s problems with what he’s saying. We aren’t accusing him of openly endorsing date rape, we’re accusing him of diminishing the severity of the vast majority of sexual assaults in order to play up the stranger rape archetype which continues to silence victims and prevent them from accessing justice. We’re accusing him of perpetuating the view that non-violent rape at the hands of someone you know isn’t ‘as bad,’ a view that tells rapists that these crimes are gonna be easier to get away with, and aren’t ‘really rape.’ And even though that’s not openly endorsing, it has the same effect, so it doesn’t really make a difference.Dawkins is an asshole.

The only things I have an issue with people reblogging are

  1. posts which deal with/allude to my personal experiences with assault or gendered harassment
  2. posts which deal with/allude to my personal experiences with more general harassment
  3. posts about my family.
  4. really personal posts, like if I’m talking about overcoming mental illness or whatever, that’s not really for you. It’s a post firmly about my personal circumstances.
  5. Posts that say ‘don’t reblog’ on the post/in the tags, although generally this will be on posts about one of the above 4 things.

If I’m talking about assault or general harassment or overcoming things more generally as a phenomenon, or I only mention myself as an example to prove a broader point, or if I am talking about myself, but it’s in a way that is clearly addressing others (rather than just stating something about myself), I am ok with them being reblogged.

Nah but it really bothers me, because reading about heroic women makes me feel like I should take pride in strength, but it irks me because they’re always tiny and narrow girls, and even though I’m not fat, I’m relatively chubby and broad and geez it would be great to have a hero like that, instead of hating my hips and shoulders and hands etc.

Not every single woman born in a dystopian society is gonna have tiny hips and a narrow frame. Genetics don’t work like that.

Tbh I would like a hero girl/woman who isn’t described as being narrow/tiny/wiry like geez, taking pride in strength is one great thing, but why can that strength and ability never exist in a girl who’s got broad shoulders, or hips, or something? Why can’t books ever talk about how her thigh muscles stand out? Why are sporty hero protagonists always described as being super thin and tiny?

My new Kim k boyfriend looks like the bad guy from titanic but he was the first dude I met after breaking up with the negging baddie.

I can now listen to sad songs without feeling devastated, and I can think about things which previously pushed me into a days-long slump, without that happening.

If you’ll be my star
I’ll be your sky
You can hide underneath me and come out at night
When I turn jet black and you show off your light
I live to let you shine
I live to let you shine
