The crux of it, in my opinion, is your knowing and proclaiming what you genuinely value and enjoy, rather than fashioning those traits around other people’s expectations.
There’s a problematic myth in society that simply because you’re a “nice” guy, you deserve rewards (usually in the form of sexual favors). When those rewards aren’t provided, we as women often get girlfriendzoned.
This message presumes that our bodies are, and should be, everyone’s number one entry-point to the good life, and that the acceptance of these vessels, with all of their squishy parts, will lead to immediate happiness–but it’s totally false.
I doubt Adam’s sister, Caroline, was placed on this show purely for laughs. Say what you will about Lena Dunham, but she doesn’t strike me as the type to simply snicker at mental instability.
I love this new music video from Jared Leto’s band, which is sprinkled with candid interviews with some of Hollywood’s most interesting characters (Kanye, Lindsay, an apparently famous porn star, Ashley Olsen, etc.), not for the song–which is pretty awful–but for what it reveals about America.
“Next time you do something that bothers your parents (or anyone for that matter), just tell them your chakras are off.” And more wise words from me to myself, after the jump…
The problem with passion is that it often trumps logic—shrouding the fact that the two parties involved actually have little-to-nothing in common, and that their immense sexual energy is built upon a love-you-and-hate-you back and forth that is not sustainable in a long-term relationship.
In case you, too, are fed up with the fashion sphere’s selective cheering for a small subset of the blogger population, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite sites to revisit, coupled with my reasoning for why that is–namely, an absolute pride and confidence in their femininity (and not femininity as defined by the upper echelons of society).
Say what you will about the internet, but sometimes, when it’s 2:33 AM and you can’t sleep, and all of your thoughts are a tangled, contradictory mess…you stumble upon a stranger’s writing and it THRILLS you.
