Today my boyfriend bought a label maker
1.) There will be boys who say sweet words that melt your heart, and they won’t want to just “get in your pants.”
2.) Everyone will hurt you some time or another, even the people who promise they won’t and aren’t supposed to.
3.) There are going to be days where you can’t go to school because you’ll be too tired from a sleepless night of over thinking.
4.) Everyone is going to leave you at some point in your life but sometimes the really special ones will come back.
5.) Sometimes the people you cannot live without, can live perfectly fine without you.
6.) You’re going to be young and fall in love and there’s a chance that will be the person you will marry, or just another person who will leave you with memories.
7.) Not everyone will be happy with your success and not everyone will be sad with your loss.
8.) There are going to be people you are close to and then suddenly one day you don’t talk and there’s not a good reason as to why
9.) People are going to make fun of you and you are going to stand out but you’re going to need to realize that everyone does this to everyone and even though it doesn’t make it right you’re going to have to learn to deal with it.
10.) There is going to be one day when suddenly no where feels like home until the day when your lips touch his, when you look into his eyes, and he wraps you in his arms and suddenly, there you are, home.

Nicki Minaj shining a light on the differences on acceptable sexuality from white women and black women.
While it has a good deal to do with color, it also has to do with the fact of how her sexuality is used.
The women above her could arguably be said to be catering to the sexual needs/wants/fantasies of men (Sports Illustrated is ESPECIALLY known for catering to a male gaze.) While Nicki Minaj has continuously used her sexuality to empower herself. Her sexuality isn’t for men, it’s for her own self. And THAT is a huge problem. Sexuality that isn’t designed for male consumption is deemed unacceptable and threatening. She is powerful, demanding, uncompromising, and men are weak, so that scares them.
And it’s also because she’s of Indian/Black background, no doubt about it. It’s not just racist, it’s also sexist.

"The federal Trafficking Victims Protection Act defines the crime of human trafficking as:
A. The recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for the purpose of a commercial sex act where such an act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age, or
B. The recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.” - (x)
… [P]ersons are trafficked into the international sex trade, often by force, fraud, or coercion. The sex industry has rapidly expanded over the past several decades. It involves sexual exploitation of persons, predominantly women and girls, involving activities related to prostitution, pornography, sex tourism, and other commercial sexual services. The low status of women in many parts of the world has contributed to a burgeoning of the trafficking industry. -
The Victims of Trafficking and Violence Prevention Act (TVPA). TVPA combats trafficking in persons, especially into the sex trade, slavery, and involuntary servitude. It has been reauthorized three times since its initial passage: (x)
THAT IS RAPE
We need to be talking about this and we need to be making sex work safe. No one should be made to feel like this treatment is okay.

A member of my cosplay group Nostalchicks Group Cosplay, Tinka Cosplay, doesn’t have a tumblr so I am posting on her behalf! Tinka is in a group with girls who are full on obsessed with Sailor Moon and she is full on obsessed with Anna from Frozen. So she decided that so she had a cosplay to go to when we did the outer scouts she would be a combo - Sailor Anna! She even gave Sven a crescent moon mark and told everyone he was a Moon-deer. When anyone would ask she would say that she and Sven are auditioning to be a Sailor Scout!
