We asked twenty strangers to kiss for the first time….
This guy knows his shit on how to kiss a girl.
He looks so cool
This is literally the hottest thing I’ve ever seen.
Who has this dude’s number also why was I not asked to do this
it looks like Jared Padalecki on hiatus
I have a long way to go, that’s for sure.
There are still stigmas that stick with me, that I try to look over and ignore as negative. I grew up in a society that taught me that my self worth was on how I presented myself as a woman (i.e. how I dressed, how I talked, who I dated, sexuality, etc.)
Keep in mind, I am a very open minded person. I always have been.
But sometimes, if I hear something, I immediately think back to how I was taught to believe. For example, if one of my friends says something along the lines of “OMG whats-her-face slept with whats-his-face one night, and then slept with two other guys the next!” that immediately hits me as “wow what a slut”.
At that point, I have to actually mentally and physically remove myself from the situation and give myself a mental slap, because it’s not wrong to be sexually liberated. Though I myself am not comfortable with my sexuality (I actually really struggle with this. My morals are fucked right now. I feel really guilty if I do anything considerably promiscuous with someone and I care way too much about what people think about me) I respect that other people are, and I have to remind myself that today’s society is fucked and has literally brainwashed me.
My last boyfriend really got into my head, too. I’m a Christian, but I understand people. I’m not going to “shove my beliefs down their throat”. I’m not going to judge anyone either - it’s not my place. Nor does God even say it’s remotely okay to judge others!
He, on the other hand, loved voicing his opinion. And he loved to fill my mind with close-minded, beliefs. He has pulled me aside before and yelled at me because he was “uncomfortable that one of my gay friends complimented him”.
I dated him for a very long time, and even now, trying to get over him, I still get worried that actions I make will disappoint him, despite the fact that I haven’t seen him in over two months.
So right now, I’m definitely trying to get over a lot of mental blocks that society has made for me. I have to continuously remind myself of things I think are considered misogynous or not.
I’m not a perfect feminist, but I’m taking it a mental step at a time.
How can we even think about having equality between genders when there isn’t even equality within genders?
How can we even fathom creating a world in which men and women are equal when white men and men of color aren’t treated as seen to each other; where white women and women of color aren’t seen as equal to each other? Same for gay men and straight men/gay women and straight women, trans men and cis men/trans women and straight women, etc. There are too many intertwining oppressions within gendered groups to act like if we “treated men and women the same” oppression would be erased.
How can we tangibly create a world in which there is gender equality when most of humanity doesn’t even acknowledge the existence of genders outside the cis binary?
It’s not that the concept of equality doesn’t appeal to me. It’s that I don’t see how it’s possible or a healthy goal to have when there is SO much work to do in the realm of LIBERATION of oppressed groups. Liberation is my primary goal at this point.
all of this.
