"Consensual sex" is just sex. To say that implies that there is such a thing as "non consensual sex", which there isn’t. That’s rape. That is what it needs to be called. There is only sex or rape. Do not teach people that rape is just another type of sex. They are two very separate events. You wouldn’t say "breathing swimming" and "non breathing swimming", you say swimming and drowning.
I sometimes think about what I could’ve turned out like if I hadn’t “messed up” certain aspects of my own life & aspects that tie in w others (friendships relationships, how i treated people in general). Then I realize it’s only a day dream, something that never could have been, or anything that would have been.
And I’m not the slightest bit mad. I appreciate where my life has put me, the enlightened mind I have grown to love and search and colonize. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t over react or under react to everything I have experienced.
A friend (maybe acquaintance) set up a 9/11 tribute in my dorm’s lobby today and urged me to come by, so as I was walking in this morning (after being locked out of my room, story in itself) he asked me to fill out a slip of paper for him. Of course I said yes, and he told me to write down why I am proud to be an American. I thought this would be simple to answer, until I started thinking about it and realized how much work needs to be done in this nation (and got really un-patriotic while waving a mini flag around) and finally thought “hey, maybe that’s it. we’re progressive.”
I dislike that people have to fight for equal rights, or that we live in a patriarchal/ racist society, where people who claim “feminism” are also claimed “manly, nasty, needs to be put in place. But at least we’re moving towards change. At least I am, and will continue to, and will continue urging everyone around me to.
I also decided I’m going to utilize my tumblr more. So, hi again.
not by any means, but that doesn’t make it a good tool to escape your problems. especially if you don’t enjoy smoking in the first place.
Honestly racism should be considered a mental disorder. If you truly believe you are better then another human being solely based on race, there is clearly something wrong with you
