Please never blame women or other people for not speaking up if something makes them uncomfortable. I can’t count the number of times I’ve stayed quiet because I was outnumbered, or because the person making a joke had power over me, or because I didn’t have the spoons to get into an argument about something.
Yeah, it’s not a simple right-or-wrong decision. There are a lot of factors to weigh, personal safety being one of them.
“Lawrence’s scathing reaction – angry, offended and unapologetic – is the righteous end to an evolution of celebrity nude “scandal” responses. Where once female stars were expected to hang their head in shame for having the temerity to pose nude for themselves or lovers, now they can issue a barely-shrouded “fuck you” to a public that so gleefully consumed their humiliation.”—The Jennifer Lawrence naked photo response is the end of the shamed starlet, my latest at the Guardian US (via jessicavalenti)
Only time will tell if this *really* affects her career negatively. I doubt it will.

According to mainstream feminism, being a “proper” feminist is never pointing out male violence, “the patriarchy” is what hurts women, not men, and even though there is concrete evidence that certain practices physically and/or mentally harm women, you shouldn’t say anything about it because it “robs women who choose it of their agency”.
ppl who silence western women by saying "youre complaining about being called a bitch/bossy?? women in poor countries are being TORTURED!! what do you have to complain about?!" dont actually care about the women being actually tortured in these poor countries they literally just want you to shut up
Concerts are such a surreal experience, I mean, you’re singing your favorite songs with a band or singer that means the world to you and you’re literally in the same room as them. I will never stop loving concerts.
“I’m definitely Pro-Selfie. I think that anybody who’s Anti-Selfie is really just a hater. Because, truthfully, why shouldn’t people take pictures of themselves ? When I’m on Instagram and I see that somebody took a picture of themselves, I’m like ‘Thank You’.
I don’t need to see a picture of the sky, the trees, plants. There’s only one you.
I could Google image search ‘the sky’ and I would probably see beautiful images to knock my socks off. But I can’t google, you know ‘what does my friend look like today?’
For you to be able to take a picture of yourself that you feel good enough about to share with the world - I think that’s a great thing”—Ezra Koenig being the most adorable human being ever (via unmaiden)
I won’t be on tumblr much for a while b/c I’m back in school and, much to my displeasure; have a huge paper due in less than two weeks time and am having to force myself to read the incredibly boring book that I have to write the paper on…*sigh*
gamer dweebs:if you don't like the game, why don't you just make your own version? That way I can ignore it, downvote it, talk shit about it, roll my eyes when people talk about it, refuse to play it, badmouth the person who made it, steal it, play five minutes of it, write a passive aggressive jemble review about it, then pretend it was some infallibly neutral and objective invisible hand of the market that caused it to fail, then use it as an example of what happens when people don't do what I want
