In our society today girls feel that they need to be skinny in order to find love. Fact is, your true love is gonna love you no matter what. If he cares about the size of your thighs more then the size of your heart…drop him my darlings as no man should make you feel bad about your size if he truly loves you <3

We’re Forced To Buy Into The Male Gaze: There isn’t an inherent problem with women wanting to look or feel sexy. But when being sexy is marketed towards women in such a creepy, male gaze style, it’s a hard pill to swallow. It’s possible to encourage women to buy a product without having a gratuitous crotch shot. It’s almost as if most ads geared towards women are actually meant for horny, straight dudes.
This is exactly the sort of thing that I run this blog for.
This fall, New York City becomes the first city in the nation to tackle the issue of girls’ self-esteem and body image. Recognizing that girls as young as 6 and 7 are struggling with body image and self-esteem, (over 80% of 10-year-old girls are afraid of being fat and by middle school, 40-70% of girls are dissatisfied with two or more parts of their body), New York City is launching a self-esteem initiative to help girls believe their value comes from their character, skills, and attributes – not appearance.
HOLY SHIT DISABILITY REPRESENTATION IN A MAINSTREAM BODY ACCEPTANCE CAMPAIGN
and girls of color!
yo this was thought up by a bunch of middle schoolers and teenagers with Brave Girls Alliance and SPARK IT GETS COOLER
Love this! More of this please! Everywhere! I want my daughter to grow up in a world rich with representation of all types of smart, strong and beautiful women!
“In a study of children aged 2-5, parents interrupted their daughters more than their sons, and fathers were more likely to talk simultaneously with their children than mothers were. Jennifer Coates says: “It seems that fathers try to control conversation more than mothers… and both parents try to control conversation more with daughters than with sons. The implicit message to girls is that they are more interruptible and that their right to speak is less than that of boys.” Girls and boys’ differing understanding of when to talk, when to be quiet, what is polite and so on, has a visible impact on the dynamics of the classroom. Just as men dominate the floor in business meetings, academic conferences and so on, so little boys dominate in the classroom - and little girls let them.”
This is why it’s so important to bolster our girls’ self esteem from childhood. Our entire society has had this kind of mentality ingrained in them, and it needs to change. That’s a huge paradigm shift, but it happens one family at a time. Raise your daughters to raise their hands, and make their voices heard!
You may not be able to see your own beauty or love yourself but one day, someone will. You have only lived such a small part of yourself, you will never know what the future brings. So, keep going. Hold on. You are never alone. ♥
For my lovely followers whom I love dearly and would be very much aggrieved if I ever found out that they were gone.
Live your beautiful life!
because it helps to remember this every now and then.
Also did anybody else notice that they removed the “Elton John’s AIDS foundation” logo from Miley’s picture? Fuckin’ agendas everywhere….
I literally threw a mini fit
The fact that they even touched up the woman in the BACKGROUND of the Selena Gomez pic is crazy.
I’ve said this every time it comes on my dash but please also notice that a lot of the women get photoshopped lighter.
And that´s the reason why nobody should try to be that thin, because that thin doesn´t exist in reality.
THIS IS SO SATISFYING TO LOOK AT I LITERALLY STARED AT THIS FOR LIKE 12 MINUTEs
Stop photoshopping like this! Do these women need to be portrayed any skinnier than they already are? Absolutely not! They are all perfectly gorgeous as is. Why is our society obsessed with presenting an unattainable standard of beauty?
This is glorious and even thought it doesn’t fit in the range of all the paranormal, creepy and science I usually post, I MUST share
It works like this: You tell Kitestring that you’re in a dangerous place or situation, and give it a time frame of when to check in on you. If you don’t reply back when it checks your status, it’ll alert your emergency contacts with a custom message you set up.
It doesn’t require you to touch anything (like bSafe) or shake your phone (like Nirbhaya) to send the distress signal. Kitestring is smarter, because it doesn’t need an action to alert people, it needs inaction.
This is fantastic!

This is an amazing resource. Please help spread the word. As a survivor of domestic violence, who had an infant at the time, I urge everyone to do everything they can to help people in domestic violence situations. You could be saving someone’s life.
