If ur feeling small today I dare you to sit up straighter, look someone who scares u directly in the eye, take up room at the dinner table, make yourself bigger, when ‘sorry’ laps at the back of your tongue, tries to pick up after you, remind yourself that your existence doesn’t demand an apology, that you are allowed to make mess and take up space, do not be afraid to expand. Every single goddamn minute. Expand, expand, expand
i needed this today
I think it’s really fucked up how so many teenagers are alone and sad and having panic attacks in their room while their parents watch TV, and how a lot of those teenagers have had relatively normal childhoods, yet there’s this huge boom of depression and mental disorders, and its just dumb how we’ve turned into a generation labeled ‘reckless’ but really, we’re only reckless with ourselves
This is one of the best posts I’ve ever read
TODAY at UT Austin, 5 Abortion Rights Freedom Riders, including intiator of Stop Patriarchy, Sunsara Taylor, were singled out and arrested when they joined with dozens of others in protesting the impending closure of abortion clinics in Texas, on the first official day of classes outside of UT Austin.
Thousands of students gathered as the freedom riders blocked traffic for over half an hour. About a dozen people joined in the action on the spot, incredibly inspired by what was happening. Hundreds took videos and photos, and watched on in awe.
There were many different reactions, both positive and negative. A few cars nearly hit some of the protesters, frustrated by not being able to get to lunch, or to work on time, etc. Yes, some people were inconvenienced today, but this is so much bigger than the day to day grind.
As we await the result of HB2 in Texas, it is still the case that most people do not even know that this law is scheduled to shut down all but 6 abortion clinics in the state. It is still the case that people think this is just a question of opinion, meanwhile this right is being stripped away, and affecting real women every single day.
It is long past time that students, not only understand what’s going on nationally with this abortion rights emergency, but actually understand the implications of this, to half of humanity, and fight back. It is long past time that this complacency be challenged, that these lowered sights be raised, and that students throw in on this fight.
Today, students were confronted with the reality of what it means when abortion is illegal or inaccessible. The question that poses itself in a moment like this: What will your life be about? What will your college career be about? Throughout history, students have always played a major role in movements against injustice. That needs to be the case today, in this abortion rights emergency.
Every single student, who does not want to see women forced to bear children against their will, who does not want to see women dying from self-inducing abortions due to inaccessibility, who does not want to see women’s rights be slammed back, and this backwards view of women be codified into law, needs to act NOW. It is not too late, we have not lost this battle. This is one of those moments in history where what we do really matters, and could have society wide impact.
I love you too, and thank you so much. I miss you and I’ll be home soon enough and we’ll meet up again
yeah, I only THINK we’re dating. okay.
he only lives with you because he doesn’t have any other option. he talks about moving here to be with me. and me being in chicago doesn’t mean anything. if you can give me SOLID PROOF that you two are together, then I’ll leave it at that. but until then, you’re nothing but a psycho ex girlfriend who doesn’t know how to let go.
And it’s kinda funny because I remember she once asked how long we had been dating and I told her two years. And a picture of us hangs up in his station at work but she still thinks they are dating. I don’t know what she hopes to accomplish but he’s still with me and he…
Except I spend every night with him in bed. We live together. And you’re in Chicago so just know I’m here with him and you’re in another state now.
except that he left you a long time ago and HE asked ME to be his girlfriend, lol. he took that picture down, he doesn’t want you, you post old pictures and pretend like they’re new, he tells me I’m the greatest thing that’s happened to him, he spends his nights with me, calls me his girlfriend on insta, has me around everywhere. he wouldn’t blatantly have me around if he was still with you. but I’m sorry you believe that you two are still together. hope you get over it.
