"Losing your virginity" will henceforth be called "your sexual debut".

Do not ground your child because you caught them putting a cigarette flame to their wrist.

Do not discipline your child because they have cuts on their thighs.

Do not threaten to put your child in a mental institution because their only escape is self-harm.

Do not teach your children that if they open up to you about the scars on their bodies, the only thing they will get in return is punishment.

my mum needs to take a fucking good look at this

there’s this one girl at school who sends a mass text to the whole year group whenever she sees a dog so that we can go pat it too if we’re nearby and I have petted at least five dogs because of her that I wouldn’t have otherwise and idk I hope you all have someone like her in your lives

So this is what trust looks like.

Funny, my first thought was “So this is what the patriarchy looks like.”

Yup. This is how women are supposed to trust men. With their lives.

Woman : “Hey, can we just… Drop the bow?”Man : “WHY DON’T YOU TRUST ME I’M NOT A VIOLENT GUY, YOU ARE INSULTING ME THINKING I WILL HURT YOU!!!”Woman : “No it’s just… Well I’m afraid.”Man : “But why? Look at me, I’m not afraid. And we’re equal, look, we pull the bow together.”Woman : “I think we’re not equal, you can kill me with the arrow and I can’t.”Man : “What? So you would like to be able to kill me? You’re so agressive!”Woman : “That’s not what I mean, we were talking about equality : you can hurt me, I can’t.”Man : “Of course you can. You can hit me with the bow if you want.”Woman : “That’s not the same thing, it will never kill you.”Man : “Oh, you always complaining, stop victimising yourself! Do I talk about the difficulty of holding the arrow? Of the responsibility it giving to me?”[…]Etc, etc.Every debates about gender equality, ladies and gentleman.


omg the comments.  Brilliant.

HELLO YES I WOULD JUST LIKE TO INTERRUPT THIS POST HERE AND SAY THAT MARINA ABRAMOVIC (THE WOMAN IN THIS GIF) IS ONE OF THE MOST BADASS HUMAN BEINGS ON THE PLANET. I DO BELIEVE WHAT YOU’RE DISCUSSING HERE IS A LOT OF WHAT SHE MEANT TO POINT OUT WITH THIS WORK HERE, ESPECIALLY AS SHE ALLOWED HER PARTNER ULAY TO POINT AN ARROW AT HER CHEST AS THEY BOTH PUT TENSION ON THE BOWSTRING NOT ONCE, BUT REPEATEDLY THROUGHOUT THE COURSE OF THE PERFORMANCE.
MARINA ABRAMOVIC IS A PERFORMANCE ARTIST, AND PERFORMANCE ART IS A MEDIUM THAT WAS QUICKLY ADOPTED BY FEMINISTS IN THE 70S BECAUSE IT WAS NEW, AND THEREFORE NOT YET DOMINATED BY MEN (A PROBLEM STILL FOUND IN THE POPULAR ART WORLD TODAY). SHE PUT HER BODY ON THE LINE IN TONS OF HER ARTWORKS AND DESPITE BEING WELL OVER 60 YEARS OLD SHE CONTINUES TO DO SO TODAY. SHE HAS BLED BY HER OWN HAND AND OTHERS’ AND ONCE SHE EVEN ALLOWED A STRANGER TO PUT LOADED GUN TO HER HEAD. ALL OF HER PIECES DEAL WITH RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN PEOPLE, AND CAN OFTEN BE STRESSFUL OR DISCOMFORTING TO WATCH, SOME MAYBE EVEN OFFENSIVE. BUT DOESN’T THAT JUST SHOW YOU THE CONCERN WE HAVE FOR OTHERS?

they were right. guns don’t kill people. people kill people. people are now illegal and the crime rate is zero
