I have enough shit to cry about
Like how the children are missing meals
And how God
Sometimes sends my calls to voicemail
This mass on my brain
Eats away at my moods
I often feel unstable,
And being in love is a lot like
Pressure on the mind, heart and soul
All these layers to grieving
I just want peace of mind
While fighting for more than a piece of your heart
Could you feel anymore
Maya Angelou (via larmoyante)
This was a hard lesson to learn.
how to bloom after
so can you.
i think this just changed my life
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.

Birth control gives you the freedom to plan a family on your own terms. It allows you to work or travel or pursue your dreams before you’re ready to have a baby. It helps with certain medical conditions. It’s there when you want to have smokin’ hot sex and not get pregnant. Basically, there are lots of reasons to be thankful for birth control.
Girls star and all-around awesome lady Lena Dunham took to Twitter to voice her appreciation. She also asked women and men what birth control does for them. The whole thing made our ♥ sing.
