I want support for ugly girls and lazy girls and girls that can’t ever get their eyeliner right. I want feminism that includes girls who are too big or too black to be on body positive blogs.

I want girls with acne scars and girls who don’t “pass” and girls with facial hair….




What fucks me up about the Darren Wilson fundraiser is that he hasn’t been charged with a crime. He doesn’t have to hire a lawyer. He’s on paid leave, so he’s not losing wages. This is not covering his expenses, because he…

  • “was the galaxy print necessary”
  • “why is this so cheap”
  • “why is this so expensive”

"My body tells the story of my life, a map of my self discovery. My physicality has both protected me and isolated me. As a child, primary school was unkind to me. Growing up in a small country town where coming from a mixed-race family was alien, the racial tones were abundant, my thick black hair and my dark complexion were a dead giveaway that I was different, let alone my proud filipino mother. Emotionally too weak to deal with the racial slurs, my body responded and became my saviour. I learned to use my physicality as a means of defence. I was the kid so puffed up with aggression yet so full of pain…and I carried this peacock posture all the way through high school, making sure I was the biggest, strongest and angriest as a device to ward off the would be tormentors. Bruce Lee and Arnold Schwarzenegger hung on my wall, my inspiration to keep up the facade of the alpha male. My heroes…my idols. Both strong and indestructible. If there was a problem it was resolved with a clenched fist. I subscribed to this mentality and it served it’s purpose through my schooling years. However, when it came to dealing with the real issues that laid beneath my skin, I found it was the very same aggression that protected me, now hindered me. In retrospect, I was never happy with my body and I’m…I’m still not. I always felt uncomfortable in a change room or on swimming sports days. I would look at the other boys running around with their shirts off, absolutely oblivious to the discomfort that I was feeling. I didn’t want to take my shirt off. I was ashamed of what hid underneath it and I still live with that shame. My body is the story of my life…or so I thought. I began acting at University. I didn’t know why, I just knew that I loved it. Nowadays my reasons for the choice are much clearer. Acting for me is the ultimate escapism. It’s the chance to have a completely out of body experience and maybe it’s a chance for me to escape the unexplained shame…yet it isn’t. Mentally and emotionally, I may be able to transcend who I am but physically I can’t and this became glaringly obvious to me when I began working in the film and television industry."


You are here.
You exist.
You matter.

Even if your family can’t speak your mother tongue, even if the language you grew up with tastes like nails and exile.

Even if you long for a homeland you’ve never set foot on.

Even if others outside of your community attempt to render your experiences, feelings, and struggles invalid.

You are here.

You exist.

You matter.

In a study of injuries in 90 patients injured by rubber bullets, one died, 17 suffered permanent disabilities or deformities and 41 required hospital treatment after being fired upon with rubber bullets.
- So when the cops claim this is a humane, legitimate crowd control tactic, they’re straight up lying to your face. Don’t let them bullshit you. (x)



From Elon James White Tuesday night.

This better have hundreds of thousands of notes at the end of the day or else


 I think Clarke was one of the people who told him, “You have value.” Clarke said something like, “You’re worth saving,” and Bellamy needed to hear that from someone whose opinion he values. x
