Toni Morrison - “All water has a perfect memory and is forever trying to get back to where it was.”
I know it.
Love is many things but its never been selfish.
- Parent: Why don't you come socialize with the family?

The more I observe the more I realize that we can argue until we’re blue in the face about what this celebrity should or shouldn’t be doing or how their actions influences the children and how it’s so and so responsibility to put out a positive message, but it is nobody’s responsibility to positively influence your children. Society is not responsible for raising your child. If you are worried about the types of messages your child or children may receive, then worry about how you could fortify your child against such messages and influences.
- Societal expectations of masculinity
- Societal expectations to provide for women
- No long term reversible male birth control
- Men who are raped are more likely to remain silent and be dismissed or outright laughed at
- Unfair treatment in child custody battles
- No support for male victims of domestic abuse
- Media portrayal of married men as weak morons
Not men’s issues
- The friend zone
- Women not dating you
I miss her. But my desire to not be in a long-distant relationship is bigger than the feelings of missing her. I miss her. But my desire to not have to schedule affections is bigger than the feelings of missing her. As I write this, I feel my heart tearing down these reasons that my brain has built. I feel the longing for her growing stronger.
I know that in this moment, I feel such a way and another moment I will not. So I will be still and prevent any collateral damage.
why are girls so cute like god damn curves and boobs and those legs and your hair and your skin and your voices and just like hot damn girls in thigh highs and maid outfits and oversized sweaters and messy hair and piercings and dresses

dumb cunt. in that order.
watch her spirit leave her body.
what her fall into herself.
take pride in your aim. your precision.
grab a plate.
eat what remains of her.
that is what you do
who are not yours everyday.” —i am speaking to men and women, nayyirah waheed (via nayyirahwaheed)
you talk about their “pussy”
they feel their black split.
you use your words to lick them
they lose their legs to fire.
you build them houses with cash bricks
they make happiness from the spit off of your songs.
you use their hope and their skin
build an empire
tell them they should be grateful
you remember their face.” —vampire (hip hop 2013), nayyirah waheed (via nayyirahwaheed)
plot twist: the man thinks, ah, she is simply expressing her frustration as a member of an oppressed group, whilst hating the construction of masculinity that was designed to keep her down, not necessarily all individual men such as myself…this is absolutely not the same thing as sexism and not a personal attack on me *keeps scrolling*
