It makes me want to join but I'm not comfortable with people looking at me butt ass naked. I can't even have my boyfriends looking at me naked. Power to you girl!!!
The idea of “daddy issues” is ultimately incredibly misogynistic, blaming and shaming women for having been abused or neglected as little girls by adult men and making it HER fault, HER problem. Even if I was a stripper with an abusive father, who the fuck’s business is it? Does it invalidate my life and experiences and choices? Is it more relevant than a lawyer with an abusive father? Or a war veteran? Why do you blame and invalidate women for being hurt by men AS CHILDREN? It’s wrong. I urge people to purge the phrase “daddy issues” from your personal vocabulary for life.

I rarely see this mentioned so I wonder if people just don’t realize what a national travesty Mt. Rushmore is.
The Black Hills is sacred land to the Oglala Lakota tribe. The Oglala Lakota used to own that land through a treaty with the U.S. I mean, it was their land pre-white-colonization, but then the US started to colonize it and later gave the Black Hills back to them through the Treaty of 1868. Once gold was found on the land, however, prospectors migrated and set up shop in the 1870s. The government took back the Black Hills land, because of the gold. In 1927, Mount Rushmore was constructed into the hills.
In simple terms: the colonizers stole the Oglala Lakota’s land, “gave” it back, found out it had capitalistic value, took it again, and then carved their own leader’s crinkley-ass white fucking faces into the mountains that were considered to be sacred, like do you realize how fucking MONSTROUS that is????
ughhh I tentatively agreed to go on a date but I am ugly and my hair is falling out and the guy is probably lame anyway.
also I’m having dreams about weddings gone awry again. WHY
soda: you are sweet
beer: you are cool
wine: you are old
tea: you are classical
coffee: you love coffee!
coffee is accurate. I pretty much force-feed Community Coffee Dark Roast to anyone who enters my apartment because YOU HAVE TO HAVE IT.
thank you. I guess it’s pregnancy season because I’ve been seeing gender reveal parties on my facebook feed almost weekly.
