I don’t really understand how “social justice” became an insulting term.
"Oh my GOD, you’re attempting to address the inequalities you experience personally and are shedding light on the struggles of others?! WOW FUCK YOU."
you do tho. you know its a silencing tactic used to keep oppressive hierarchies in place. taboos and discomfort surrounding social critiques are not individual, they are enforced strategies of supremacy.
When men talk of women and girls in terms of legal/not legal, what they’re really saying is “I already sexually objectify this child and would attempt to fuck her if there were no laws in the way.”
You can’t deny that is fucking scary.
Sometimes there are things that just sort of vaguely seem wrong, but you can’t put your finger on why…until it’s worded like this, and suddenly everything slides into place and you feel like someone punched you in the gut.

this story always fascinates/terrifies me
imagine noticing your food going missing, setting up a webcam expecting to see like a cat or a raccoon or something, only to see a grown ass woman crawl out of your closet like something from the Ring and then crawl straight back in again
that closet which, as you view the footage on your laptop, stands about a foot away from you at this moment
Id be having a heart attack
nah that hoe gotta pay me some rent or something
How does this shit happen? Don’t you use that closet? Don’t you check your house when you come home and its late?
Lack of situational awareness doesn’t even BEGIN to describe this.

Living with mental illness means that on some days it will be even harder to cope and you might not be able to explain why. It could be because you havent slept enough, because a smell reminded you of feeling sad, or for no reason at all.
This is a reminder that we dont have to justify our feelings or abilities to anyone, just do whats needed to make it to the next day.
