"We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls – you can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful but not too successful otherwise you will threaten the man. Because I am female I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. A marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support. But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors not for jobs or for accomplishments, Which I think can be a good thing .But for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are."

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie  (via quarter-century-life-crisis)

I want a smoke and I want to get drunk and I want to be kissed and I want to feel something

This is rape culture

That is fucked up

Why are people so scared of murder? Y’all should feel pride that someone risked life in jail just to kill you

Literally that is how stupid these people sound to me rn
