Boucing Grey Bow Tie Ribbon



This is my son, Chester, who is nearly 4. He was invited to his friend Chloe’s birthday party today, the theme was prince and princesses. He asked if he could go as Sleeping Beauty, so I bought him a dress and put a cute little clip in his hair.
We arrived at the party to the following comments from the adults present: “Oh that is just cruel.”
"Why did you make him wear a dress?"
"Poor little man, what’s your mummy playing at?"
"He’s going to hate you when he grows up."
"No way I’d let my son dress like a girl."
The fact is, Chester is almost completely gender neutral. I let him wear what he wants, be it boys or girls clothes, and he plays with whatever toys he likes. This usually involves him holding tea parties while wearing his pink Minnie Mouse top, jeans and a tiara. The guests are more often than not a mixture of Winnie The Pooh characters, dinosaurs, Barbie, Dora and solders, and they’re usually transported in his favorite fire engine.
When my husband arrived at the party later on, he was subjected to endless ridicule from the other dad’s present about how I must keep his balls in my back pocket because otherwise he would have put his foot down and not allowed Chester out like that. Oh, and by the way, our other son dressed as Ariel. When my husband pointed out that the boys were happy, and the mother of the birthday child made a point of saying how wonderful she thought it was that we allowed them freedom of choice and expression, they then stopped talking about it to our faces and started muttering about us behind our backs.
Interestingly enough, not a single child said a word about their choice of costumes, other than to compliment Chester on his new dress.

ive been searching through my likes for so long to find this it is perfect

why are you a feminist???


because people are still asking that question

because women are payed less than men in approximately 99% of professions

because chris brown can still have a career after assaulting rihanna but miley cyrus takes her clothes off and there’s a huge scandal

because of this:


because currently it is estimated ten million more girls are out of education than boys (x)

because we’re expected to be mature but hairless like a child, in control but not bossy, sexy but not slutty and definitely not a prude, intelligent but not opinionated, independent but reliant on men, natural but look like the girl in the magazine etc etc

because being called a girl, a pussy or a bitch is an insult

because when i told my mum i refused to get anything less than a’s in my exams she told me it wasn’t ladylike to be so cocky

because my brother and 90% of my male friends think girls who wear revealing clothing are asking for rape

because every person who identifies as female should be allowed to choose if they want to get married, have kids, have a career, go to uni etc etc without expectations

because tampons and sanitary pads are stupidly expensive

because some people reading this will have flinched at the fact i just said ‘tampon’

because there are men out there whose job it is to make young girls feel like absolute shit about themselves just so they can sell the next best beauty product

because female masturbation isn’t considered normal whilst men can talk about their own penises for hours on end


because feminists are still seen as crazy lesbians who dont shave and some still feel like they have to defend themselves by claiming theyre not any of those things when in fact if i want to be a passionate lady who likes other ladies and cant be bothered to shave my legs every twenty minutes then thats my choice and if i want to be someone who wears make up and shaves and goes out partying then thats my choice and if i want to be a combination of the two or anything in between then thats. my. choice.

because i believe anyone who identifies as female is fucking badass and deserves the same rights as every privileged stuck up old white man sitting around and making laws about our bodies

because how can you not be


everyone’s like “hA HA EASTER IS ON 4/20 LOL BLAZE IT PRAISE IT”

and then in Britain we’re just like “it’s 20/4 don’t blaze anything except the toaster for some hot cross buns and the kettle for an accompanying cup of tea”

if i ever got sentenced to house arrest i’d just laugh at the judge

Are you into BDSM?


I’ve always been a fan of Bob Dylan’s Sensual Music 





I honestly couldnt be happier to say, I got my period today! 
I cant believe it I feel so amazing, I mean not literally of course because period comes with cramps, bloating, moodiness and all that good stuff but I dont even care about any of that because this is such a true indication that I am doing what is right for my body and it feels so good. I am so happy I am becoming a normal teenage girl again. My boobs are growing (yaaaaaay!), my hormones are coming back into balance, my thoughts around food are more normal, I am starting to accept my body image in the mirror, everything is just coming full circle. Of course every day isn’t perfect and I still have so many thoughts and regrets and ED thoughts but its pushing those thoughts back and telling myself I can move on and those thoughts are just thoughts, and they are not correct. I can do this, I can recover, I can be healthy, I can be free. And saying all of that, puts me one step closer.
now i am off to go eat some chocolate, because that is what girls do when they have their period….right? :D

God. So proud of this fucking girl.

You wave those things around hun. Good on you, you’re a fighter!

this is fucking beautiful.
