"Women today are still held captive by images that ultimately tell lies about women. The biggest lie is that conforming to this hypersexualized image will give women real power in the world, since in a porn culture, our power rests, we are told, not in our ability to shape the institutions that determine our life chances but in having a hot body that men desire and women envy."
- Dines, Gail. “Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality.” (p. 102), (excerpt)
oh my god i’m fucking sick of this generation’s mentality that your sadness is beautiful and somebody will fix you and all this fucking john green shit nobody will find you in a bookstore reading bukowski and want to lie with you and nobody will kiss your scars and you will not be like effie and freddie you’ve got to be your own fucking hero and surround yourself with positivity
I laughed so hard my mom came into my room and asked me what happened so i showed her this and we’ve been laughing for like 5 minutes straight and no end in sight
"Real men" do not love curves
A Real man does not love a woman for her body type.
And “real women” don’t shame other women for their bodies.
