and i said to my body. softly. ‘i want to be your friend.’ it took a long breath. and replied, ‘i have been waiting my whole life for this.’

I need tattoo advice again y’all

I really want to get

On demand
Without apology

As a tattoo. Somewhere. The only problem is I have literally no idea where it should go/would look good. I already have one on my left shoulderblade.

Ideas/opinions? I really wanted to get something abortion-rights related and I think that iconic phrase is perfect.

A woman sitting by herself is not waiting for you.

You’re a hottie, so love your body!

It is an act of courage to be fat in public.

Please, I want so badly for the good things to happen.

Sylvia Plath, 3 months before her suicide. (via isobutane)

have you considered that maybe i am not pleasant?

maybe i wear lipstick so that
you will see my pretty pink mouth
wrapping around a coffee cup lid
and be distracted enough not to notice
that i am intelligent and powerful;
a threat.

maybe i draw my brows into high arches
so you will look at my unimpressed skepticism
and overlook my spiteful glare
as a trick of my silly, girlish routine.

maybe i wear my heels so high and thin
so that i grasp your attention with the sway of my hips
as i listen to the click-clack-click against the floor
and know that if you should try to overpower me
i walk on sharpened knives.

maybe when i laugh at your worthless jokes
i am really baring my fangs
waiting patiently for the day
that i sink them into your neck.

i am not made of porcelain pleasantries;
you will find that these things are my armor
to keep you at a distance
so you do not step on me and shatter
my fragile control.

i am not a husk — i am not wilting.
i am turning my head
so that the fire blazing through my eyes
does not catch on the accelerant of your sweaty palms
and burn your bones to dust.

i am not your pretty girl;
i am a fury, a faerie, a phoenix —
a forest of werewolves and wendigos
that will carve out your chest
so that the next time i paint my pretty pink lips
i will taste the copper tang of your dying breaths.

Heroes: A Collaboration Between Janet Mock & Julio Salgado

From Janet Mock: “Brilliant artist Julio Salgado reached out to me about collaborating on an art project. I provided the words, he the images. He drew me embracing my biggest influences and I said a few words about my heroes. You can visit Julio’s FB here.”

Hi! I really like your blog and was wondering if I could ask you a question. So I'm currently in the process of questioning my sexuality. I currently identify as straight, but I'm starting to think that I'm actually a lesbian. I want to set up an okcupid account so that I can get more experience dating women, but I was wondering if it was okay to label myself as gay in the account questionnaire part of okcupid (the options are straight, gay, or bisexual) if I'm currently questioning?


Hi anon! :)

Thank you! I would definitely say it’s okay to set your sexuality as gay on okcupid. If you think you may be a lesbian, or queer at all, you wouldn’t be lying about it or deceiving anyone, so I don’t see it as an issue. In your about me, if you want, maybe you could explain that you’re questioning so the ladies you’re talking to get a better understanding of your sexuality and the path you’re on to discover yourself. (On my okcupid, my sexuality is set as bisexual, but in my about me I explain that I identify as both queer and lesbian rather than bisexual.)

I hope this helps! <3
