as a child i thought if someone jumped me it would result in me murdering or mutilating a man. but as a man i am not a killer. i’m an artist and a modern person. i’ll choose sanity. no criminal charges. no civil lawsuit. forgiveness, albeit difficult, is wisdom. peace, albeit trite, is what i want in my short life. peace.
love this man.
This happens all the time. Every car horn, every whistle, every cat call and lewd exclamation, strengthens the lesson I’ve been taught over and over and over again throughout my entire life: as a lady, my body is on public display and open for judgment—from anyone.
Most men who will see this are decent, rational guys who will sympathize with my feelings. A small, vocal handful of dudes will send me private messages about how women like me can’t “take a fucking compliment.” This is not for either of you. This is for the guys who don’t know yet that attracting unwanted attention doesn’t make women feel good, no matter how nice their intentions are. I can’t speak for everyone, but I can say that I personally get embarrassed, often scared, and always—ALWAYS—ashamed, in some way, in how I look.
So… now that you know, cut it out. Tell all the girls how nice they are and how amazing they are at their jobs instead.
I am probably told about ten to twenty times a week that I can’t take a compliment and that I can’t take jokes. I hate that it happens all the time but I feel less insane when I hear that other women whom I don’t know all that well personally have the same gut feelings I do when we are treated this way. - Jen
“Every girl is expected to have caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama and doll tits. This is why everyone is struggling.”
Every time we heard a gunshot somebody would say “oh, it’s just firecrackers.” But really? People are just randomly shooting off firecrackers all the time? Even in the winter? Even in a town where nobody has a yard? I think it’s a conspiracy, a lie people started telling because it’s easier than hearing gunshots. It’s a privilege for us to hear that noise and imagine it’s all just another shiny explosion in the sky.”
The so-called “bromance” between actors Matt Damon and Ben Affleck has been a near-endless source of tabloid speculation since they first collaborated on “Good Will Hunting” in 1997. Damon discusses those rumors — and then some — in a new interview with Playboy magazine, saying he and Affleck were in “a weird position” with regard to the scrutiny. “I never denied those rumors because I was offended and didn’t want to offend my friends who were gay — as if being gay were some kind of f**king disease…the whole thing was just gross,” Damon told the magazine. “But look, there have been great signs of progress — the fact that Anderson Cooper and Ellen DeGeneres can come out so beautifully and powerfully, and it’s a big f**king deal that it turns out nobody gives a shit. If Liberace were alive today, everybody would love his music and nobody would care what he did in his private life.” Still, Damon is set to play gay in the forthcoming HBO biopic, “Behind The Candelabra,” in which he portrays Scott Thorson, the long-term lover of Liberace (Michael Douglas). “These two men were deeply in love and in a real relationship — a marriage — long before there was gay marriage,” Damon says of the real-life pair. “That’s not an insignificant thing. The script is beautiful and relatable. Their conversations when they’re dressing or undressing or having a spat or getting ready for bed? That’s every marriage.”
