At a glance I thought these were photos and slowly realised they weren’t. They incite intense curiosity in me and I dig that.
Free your lines and the rest will follow…or at least that’s the idea behind this notebook created by Marc Thomasset.
you don’t understand
this would fuck me up so badly because I wouldn’t be able to write outside of the lines and I would literally have to flip the notebook as I wrote because I am going to damn well make sure that my sentences follow those fucking lines
Imagine turning in a paper to your teacher using that.
I have been burdened with glorious need. *drool*
The Evolution of Lara Croft.
Cave diver Dave Bunnel, 61, captured these stunning images of him diving into Mexico’s El Sotano de las Golodrinas, The Basement of Swallows — - a 1,200-foot-deep hole in Mexico that is so deep, clouds form inside. The pit was first descended in December of 1967 by a trio of Americans. Its total depth is 1,638ft although the final few hundred feet accessible are only accessible through a pit series called The Crevice. It gets its name, the Basement of Swallows, thanks to the birds that fly above its opening.

So, these are only a FEW of the tweets that were aimed towards me, for openly being a female with armpit hair. There are millions more that I may or may not post. But for now, let’s go ahead and review this here folks.
Does a dozen teenagers who have been brainwashed by our patriarchal, misogynistic society telling me that I’m a disgusting hairy ape hurt my feelings? Absolutely not. I’m obviously very proud to display my body and my personal choices that go against our cruel standards for women.
But what does make me sad, is that this is what we are teaching our youth. These are the real, raw beliefs of young people today in regards to women, and what they can and cannot do with their bodies.
They truly believe in their minds that it is ‘unacceptable’ and ‘disgusting’ for a woman to make the choice to not shave. What’s even more sad to me is that the people agreeing with this boy were ALL FEMALE. Is this kind of bias, this kind of internalized hatred for womens bodies & choices really what we want to continue to teach them? This is probably the first time they have seen a woman who doesn’t take a razor and shave off what naturally grows on her body, and they’re legitimately angry to the point where they can personally attack someone they don’t even know about their body. They are angry to the point where it’s almost as if they feel personally insulted that a girl does not shave. Let’s stop and think: why would they feel this angry about a personal choice that is so very insignificant? That has no effect on our health, hygiene or well being?
Think back to this the next time you hear yourself or someone else saying 'women are equal' or ‘women aren’t discriminated against.’Because this is what we are teaching our young women. We are teaching them that your body is not okay, it is not okay to go against what society defines as ‘beautiful.’ It is not okay to be open about who you are, what you choose to do with your body that makes you most comfortable. It is not okay to make a choice that goes against the rules that society has set for us. That you are ‘psycho,’ an ape, disgusting, & that your choices that fit your comfort are not okay. This is the world we have created for women.
