#HalfTheSky After being repeatedly sexually harassed and stalked, two teenage girls committed suicide at their school in India. The engineering students, Madhu and Nikita, both left suicide letters at their desks decrying the way women are viewed in society. “Every day a new man would come and chase us. They would pass lewd remarks and offer us phone numbers. The people around us would stare as if we had done something wrong,” wrote 16-year-old Madhu in her six-page letter. “I have not done anything wrong to bring shame on my family. I am ending my life because I cannot take this daily tension,” 17-year-old Nikita wrote, urging police to crackdown on sexual harassment and warning of more suicides happening if action is not taken. http://www.trust.org/item/20140829094100-6ah0b/?source=dpagerel

we’ve taught girls to romanticise nearly everything a boy does. when i was younger i thought it was cute that boys chased the girl even after she said no. i loved it when after a girl moved away from a kiss, the guy would pull her back and force it on. i thought a guy saying ‘i won’t take a no for an answer’ was passionate and romantic. we’re literally always teaching girls to romanticise abusive traits.

Just a reminder to the world that there is this glorious feminist thing called the Hawkeye Initiative. Where people draw Hawkeye (and possibly other avengers) in various sexual poses that comic artists generally depict women in.

Do not fall in love with a poet. They will turn you into metaphors and rewrite you so many times, you won’t know who you are anymore. Also, they lie too beautifully.

I am trying to see things in perspective. My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot have this, because chocolate makes dogs very sick. My dog does not understand this. She pouts and wraps herself around my leg like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in, she eventually gives up and lays in the corner, under the piano, drooping and sad. I hope the universe has my best interest in mind like I have my dog’s. When I want something with my whole being, and the universe withholds it from me, I hope the universe thinks to herself: "Silly girl. She thinks this is what she wants, but she does not understand how it will hurt.
