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.

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?

@Anonymous

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
