My fabulous acappella group covering James Blake’s “Retrograde”. AMAZING. Can’t even be humble about it.

I don’t usually do this, but I want answers lol. #makeup #beauty #women #everydaymakeup #gettingready

Ladies, do you wear make-up everyday? If so, why? If you don’t, why not?

If this isn’t the realest think I’ve read in a while…

"Know some will say, ‘life’s a bitch’, well I’ma keep flirtin’, and fuck that bitch for the money and Louis V purchases."

No. No. No. Disturbing.

It really unsettles me when I hear phrases like this. & it’s so common- when someone chooses to demonstrate their dominance through either a) an elaborate and graphic metaphor about “raping” something, i.e. “I raped that exam” or b) personifying their actions as something feminine or female and THEN degrading whatever said task is, like Wiz Khalifa did.

This shit isn’t cool. Esp, the rape thing. Rape and assault are way more common than you think. Male or female, you probably have a friend that has been, or knows someone that’s been assaulted. What’s worse is half the time I hear women saying this nonsense. It’s always really off-putting to me.

This brings me to another similar instance- when women give really graphic instructions to “suck their dick/balls” except their go into detail…I’d rather not type it out just use your imagination and picture the best ways to degrade someone. WHYYYYYY would you use this as a way to exercise your so-called dominance over someone else? I don’t get it. Why do you have to use the visual and act of fellatio, which is an act only specific to males, to subordinate another? Is there not power in your womanhood or even just the regular English language? I’m kind of losing my point here, I hope this made sense. I’m really sitting here trying to elaborate this and make this more eloquent. I just don’t get why you would use an act that can be seen as an exercise of male dominance to dominate another person, esp. a female. I feel like it aids the idea that male dominance at the expense of female subordination is okay and favored. It also make it seems as though females are okay with this idea- regardless of whether fellatio is seen as degrading or not. That’s not the point. It’s how that act is being displayed and use that makes it degrading in this context. Do what you do.

Aaaaanyways, didn’t mean to turn this into a super long rant.
