What makes me so happy about this is that she isn’t telling you you must love your body or that you are obligated to. She saying you have permission to. And that’s important, because there are a lot of reasons why people have trouble with self-love. But the idea that you aren’t supposed to love your body, that you aren’t allowed to for whatever reason, needs to be crushed. If you can’t love you body right now, if your body causes you pain or disphoria or distress, you aren’t required to love it. But you are ALLOWED to. You are entitled to the chance to make peace with your body, if you ever reach a point where you are ready to. No one else should be trying to stop you.
“When I was eight, I was confused about being called ‘bossy’ because I wanted to direct the plays that we would put on for our parents. But the boys were not. When at 14, I started to be sexualized by certain elements of the media. When at 15, my girlfriends started dropping out of their beloved sports teams because they didn’t want to appear ‘muscle-y.’ When at 18, my males friends were unable to express their feelings; I decided that I was a feminist.”
irish is such a shady language because hello is “dia duit” but directly translated it means “god be with you” and when someone says hello back they say “dia is muire duit” which means “god and mary be with you” .. its like “i see your god and i raise you the holy virgin whatcha gonna do bout it bitch”
irish isnt a language…
There is a crack in everything.
That’s how the light gets in.
At Lava Mae we believe that with hygiene comes dignity and with dignity, opportunity.
Last year the Gaiman Foundation helped fund the first of these buses. Now Lava Mae are out to fund a second bus. Can you help?
There are 7,350+ people without homes in San Francisco. Over half live on the street yet there are only seven places where they can drop in to take a shower.
It’s not just San Francisco that has this problem. Communities across this country are failing to provide access to hygiene for their citizens. We hear from someone just about every day in some city or town in the US who asks us to bring Lava Mae to their community. The need is huge.
