“Even after all this time the sun never says to the earth, 'you owe me.' Look what happens with a love like that. It lights the whole sky." - Hafez.

"Because lying to your kids about sex helps nobody. Telling them that sex is “only between mommies and daddies” is a lie that leads to confused, hormone charged teenagers. Telling them that sex is “only something that happens when two people love each other very much” is a lie that causes hormone charged teenagers to confuse “love” with “lust,” or “obsession.” It leads to leaps of logic like, “If I have sex with them, we must be in love.” Or worse- “If I love them, I have to have sex with them.” And how many teenage tragedies are based on that misconception?"

I want to text you. Just to remind you that I’m still here.

But then I remember that you know I’m here. You just don’t care.

New York Film Academy’s study of gender inequality in the film industry.

Yeah there’s that. Now a show me a racial breakdown. It’s seriously sad. 

zanabism:

being called “racist” isn’t an insult or something mean that people are saying to you because they want to bring you down. if you’re being called racist you shouldn’t be brushing it off because you “can’t see the haters” you should be assessing your behaviour, your language, and mindset for signs of prejudice, discrimination, and sympathy/support for unfair and violent treatment towards racially persecuted people in your country
