  • 1: Talk about the first time you watched your favorite movie.

I absolutely cannot pick a single favorite movie. I just can’t do it. So I’ll tell the story of seeing one of my favorite movies for the first time. I was about 14 years old or so when someone in my family (couldn’t have been me, because it’s rated R and I was definitely not yet 18) checked out Love Actually from the library. (My sister just confirmed that she’s the one who checked it out. Yay, sisters.) And we sat down and watched it. I remember loving it, but being MASSIVELY UNCOMFORTABLE watching the scenes with frontal nudity with my sister. I got over the discomfort at nudity in movies, but didn’t get over my love for this amazing movie.

  • 8: Talk about the thing you are most proud of.

When I was 17, I got involved in a highly abusive relationship. It took a very long time for me to remove myself from that situation. Last year, around this time, my abusive ex contacted me out of the blue and I didn’t fall back into the trap (I had done so three previous times). In the four years since I left the last time, I had finally learned to say no and stick to my no.

  • 22: Talk about your worst fear.

I’m afraid that I’ll end up alone because I’ll never be able to accept that I deserve to be happy and that’ll prevent me from accepting something good when I have the chance for it.

i accidentally told my friend the sweetest pick up line ever. i started talking about solipsism (the belief that everything around you was created by your mind) and i went “If everything around me is all my imagination, then you’re the best thing I’ve come up with” she was speechless for a solid five minutes.

Woot! Every 8 weeks like clockwork! (Except this past weekend, because I had bilateral ear infections and you can’t donate while taking antibiotics. But I’m going this weekend.)
Edit: If you haven’t considered donating blood before, please consider it now if you’re eligible. My sister and I have even made it a sister experience. We go get breakfast at a place down the street we love and then we go donate together.

anxiety.

Or, you know, you could just stop saying sorry.

I take it you don’t have anxiety.

You can’t “just stop saying sorry”. You do something, something so little, like accidentally bump into someone. You feel horrible about it. Your brain starts panicking and you have trouble trying to breathe. You stutter an apology. They say it’s okay, but you accidentally do it again, and you apologize again. They just say “Aha, you can stop saying sorry.” And you feel horrible that you’ve probably made them angry or upset, so you mutter out an apology for the third stupid time, and they just say to stop saying sorry. Stop saying sorry. 

You can’t just tell someone to stop saying you’re sorry.

I want that comment on flyers so I can hang them in my school

reblogging this one for the GOOD commentary.

If you’re going to tell someone to stop saying sorry say, “You don’t have to apologize to me.” and smile. If they say sorry again just say, “You’re fine.” and keep smiling and move on. The faster the situation is resolved the faster the person with anxiety can start to calm down. Please don’t get angry at someone for saying sorry, sometimes that’s all the person feels like they can do.

okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.

i just remembered people with penises can’t have multiple consecutive orgasms ohhjhhh my g OD HAHAHAHHKDFHAH

Well people with vaginas have periods so I think y’all deserve all the orgasms you want

that’s….really sweet… omfg

This post is also inclusive of transgender people this is the most positive post be seen all week

Actually, penis-owners CAN have multiple organs. It’s just much harder because they have to learn to separate orgasm (not the end of the party) from ejaculation (end of the party).  Laci Green has done a pretty amazing video on this. Here.

We were grabbing a bite of lunch at a small cafe, in a mall, right across from a booth that sold jewelry and where ears could be pierced for a fee. A mother approaches with a little girl of six or seven years old. The little girl is clearly stating that she doesn’t want her ears pierced, that’s she’s afraid of how much it will hurt, that she doesn’t like earrings much in the first place. Her protests, her clear ‘no’ is simply not heard. The mother and two other women, who work the booth, begin chatting and trying to engage the little girl in picking out a pair of earrings. She has to wear a particular kind when the piercing is first done but she could pick out a fun pair for later.

"I don’t want my ears pierced."

"I don’t want any earrings."

The three adults glance at each other conspiratorially and now the pressure really begins. She will look so nice, all the other girls she knows wear earrings, the pain isn’t bad.

She, the child, sees what’s coming and starts crying. As the adults up the volume so does she, she’s crying and emitting a low wail at the same time. “I DON’T WANT MY EARS PIERCED.”

Her mother leans down and speaks to her, quietly but strongly, the only words we could hear were ‘… embarrassing me.’

We heard, then, two small screams, when the ears were pierced.

Little children learn early and often that ‘no doesn’t mean no.’

Little children learn early that no one will stand with them, even the two old men looking horrified at the events from the cafeteria.

Little girls learn early and often that their will is not their own.

No means no, yeah, right.

Most often, for kids and others without power, ”no means force.”

from "No Means Force" at Dave Hingsburger’s blog.

This is important. It doesn’t just apply to little girls and other children, though it often begins there.

For the marginalized, our “no’s” are discounted as frivolous protests, rebelliousness, or anger issues, or we don’t know what we’re talking about, or we don’t understand what’s happening.

When “no means force” we become afraid to say no.

This is why I emphasize consent in my classroom. I have to put sunscreen on all the kids before I take them outside to play in the the summer. They are very young, so they need help adequately covering their bodies. Every single time, I ask, “I’m going to touch your back/arms/legs/face. Is that okay?” I’ve never had a kid say no, but if they did, we’d find another solution. Also, I’m DISGUSTED that the piercing attendant would pierce the ears of someone declining consent like that.
