If the first rule of a dysfunctional system is ‘Don’t talk about it,’ then our primary goal should be to tell the truth, to be as honest as we can manage to be. When I read something truthful, something real, I breathe a deep sigh of relief and say, ‘Fantastic - I wasn’t mad or alone in thinking that, after all!’ So often we are left to our own devices, struggling in the dark with this external and internal propaganda system. At that point, for someone to tell us the truth is a gift. In a world where people all around us are lying and confusing us, to be honest is a great kindness.

Rape culture trains sociopaths.
this is good to have. I always want these studies and I always have trouble finding them via google.
The same people who do this, legit feel that they are innocent. Motherfucker, “NO” does not mean “ask again” or “try harder”. .

Some cute DIY wall art! This would look absolutely adorable in a kid’s room, but it’s so pretty that I think you’ll want it somewhere you can see all the time. Cheerful by day, stunning by night, and it only takes about an hour and a half to make!
