i hope that someone, somewhere, sees this and is actually affected by it enough to make a change. this is terrible.
If you are or someone you know is in a situation where there is physical or emotional abuse here is a list of numbers and directories so you can get some help/advice for the situation.

i would also recommend downloading an app called Aspire News. it’s an app created by dr. phil’s wife (who is actually really cool tbh) and it’s disguised as a regular news app, but if you go under the ‘help’ tab, it automatically alerts the authorities and silently listens in.
it’s also chock full of tips and facts about dealing with someone in an abusive relationship.
also, if you’re ever in a situation where someone’s looking over your shoulder, just hit the ‘x’ button and it’ll take you to a random article.
to infinity and beyond done with this fucking school year
wet dream: being financially secure with a career i enjoy
stop replacing mirrors with ‘you look fine’ signs i know i look fine that’s why i want to look in the mirror
When I say “boys are dumb” what I really mean is “boys have been raised in a patriarchal society that forces them into an incorrect and problematic view of masculinity that not only forces them to strip away valuable virtues from themselves, like patience and gentleness, but also forces them them to view and treat women in unhealthy ways that devalues women as people and makes them into objects purely for a man’s benefit”
but it’s a lot faster to say “boys are dumb”
idk I just want to find someone who is proud as fuck to be with me.
