“how far have you walked for men who’ve never held your feet in their laps?
how often have you bartered with bone, only to sell yourself short?
why do you find the unavailable so alluring?
where did it begin? what went wrong? and who made you feel so worthless?
if they wanted you, wouldn’t they have chosen you?
all this time, you were begging for love silently, thinking they couldn’t hear you, but they smelt it on you, you must have known that they could taste the desperate on your skin?
and what about the others that would do anything for you, why did you make them love you until you could not stand it?
how are you both of these women, both flighty and needful?
where did you learn this, to want what does not want you?
where did you learn this, to leave those that want to stay?”—warsan shire (via ethiopienne)
Do you belive boys are even worth pursuing in high school? I know it's not exactly fair to generalize, but from what I've observed at my school, a good number of teen boys are close minded and foolish. Your opinion?
teen boys are the scum of the earth. fuck them for practice if you’d like, use them for their lunch money and make them buy you nice things, and don’t listen to them at all. actually men until the age of maybe 28 (being generous here) are all fucking scum who don’t have their shit together and i’m usually embarrassed to be in the same room as them.
“In 2009, an exhaustive study published by sociologists at Princeton Uinversity found that when measured on an all-things-being-equal basis, Asian Americans were required to score at least 140 points higher than whites on standardized tests, in order to qualify for admission into top universities.”—Discrimination against the Chinese in America (via miumiumiao)
“"Anaconda" shifts the common narrative of a man conquering female bodies to Minaj’s own stories of sexcapades without apologies. Towards the end, the only man in the video appears: Drake, seated in the middle of an empty room with roaming spotlights and Minaj treating him to a lap dance. In the final seconds, he reaches to touch Minaj’s ass after she had been flaunting it in his face, and she immediately swats his hand and struts away. Her body belongs to her, and she can twerk it and work it however she pleases, and she doesn’t owe anything to anyone.”—Nicki Minaj’s Unapologetic Sexuality is Not a Crisis | Bitch Media (via whitleygilbert)
