why is it always the woman who has to see past the beast in the man? why does she always have to clean his wounds, even after he has damaged her beyond repair? why is it always the man who is worthy of forgiveness for being a monster?
I want to see the beast in the beauty.
the half smile, half snarl. the unapologetic anger. I would like to see the man forgive the monster. to see her, blood and all, and love her anyway.
Leeloo and Wesley—
It is because society tells us that women are objects, not subjects, that Stephen Hawkings can declare women to be “a complete mystery”, and have newspapers gleefully latch on to this, declaring women “the greatest mystery known to man”. It is a common refrain for men to bleat about not understanding women, but this is because they have simply never tried, because society has trained them to never look at life through the eyes of a woman.
Stop Anonymous Hate Project
The Stop Anonymous Hate Project is a project where we raise awareness about anonymous hate.
Anonymous hate can really damage a person, and make them feel depressed, anxious, and even suicidal.
It’s a big deal.
Just a simple reblog to help raise awareness can make a whole load of difference.
This message matters to me. Because way too many people talk about getting a thick skin and what did you expect if you said something on the Internet. And that doesn’t stop the serious damage that can come from anon hate, just shifts the blame to the person already being hurt. Which, yeah, is a memorable lesson. But the lesson “It was your fault for existing in the world loudly enough to draw anyone’s attention” is maybe not the best one we could be teaching.
now you know how people with glasses see.

Wow… accuracy. Though my eyesight is actually worse than that. :(
My eyesight is also worse than that.
