Underwear, smoothie, wet hair, dirty mirror, James’ studio—I love this shot for some reason.

On being naked on the Internet.

I’d guess that most people wouldn’t feel positively about having their intimate parts shared permanently with the world. And why is that? Because they don’t feel good about their bodies? Because they are taught their bodies are shameful? Because they are afraid of causing some kind of scandal and ruining their future lives as teachers and presidents? Maybe they just don’t feel like it? There are too many reasons to list, and I’ve felt many of them at different times. But I didn’t stop sharing. Why? Because the reasons I felt were all based on fear, not the truth, and I feel strongly that many of them are worth fighting against.

I’m glad to be part of a movement of women who freely share themselves with the world, because I feel it is important to tell everyone that it’s okay to do so, and it’s okay to do it just for fun.

The body and sexuality shaming that women face everyday for a multitude of reasons is deeply damaging and unacceptable. We should feel great about our bodies, regardless of shape, size, or colour. We should feel great about our vast spectrum of sexualities. We should be able to do whatever it is we want, as long as we’re not hurting others.

Being naked is harmless, but buying into the oppressive rules built by our society is not. Helping enforce these awful rules is not.

I know this issue reaches beyond women and nudity in a broad range of directions, but I can only speak for myself and what I’m feeling in this moment. Still, the idea is simple and universal: be true to yourself and harm none.

To all those who tell us we are bad people, that we should be ashamed, or change who we are: that is not okay. May we replace this oppression with freedom, this fear and hate with unconditional love for all.

While I may be bold and spoken at a lot of things, I do feel strongly in what I do and I do have reasons. This says what I do, the work I do, and what I post quite perfectly. This post is perfect.

We can’t jump off bridges anymore because our iPhones will get ruined. We can’t take skinny dips in the ocean, because there’s no service on the beach and adventures aren’t real unless they’re on Instagram. Technology has doomed the spontaneity of adventure and we’re helping destroy it every time we Google, check-in, and hashtag.

I was just lecturing on this. Map technology eliminates the adventure of stumbling across interesting things that you did not know where there. Life is now a series of points, rather than a path or journey

Study finds those into BDSM are more well-adjusted than people who are vanilla only

iheartchaos:

Leather, whips, chains, ball gags and other kinds of kink… it may seem odd to some, but a new study has found that those who enjoy the pleasurable pain are better adjusted, have higher self-esteem and are generally happier and calmer than those who are happy with just vanilla sex.

any hot girl that has gone to a dudebro party compared to a BDSM party will tell you how much better behaved the kinky folk are. She might get hit on more, but it will be consensual.

A 12-year-old schoolgirl has been accepted into Mensa after discovering she is brainier than both Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.
Olivia Manning, from Liverpool, managed to get a whopping score in an IQ test of 162 - well above the 100 average.
Her score is not only two points better than genius German physicist Einstein and Professor Stephen Hawking, but puts her in the top one per cent of intelligent people in the world. 

this is why backwards nations will never win

wow society..

A woman makes her own social science experiment. First, while very plain looking, she asked for free cake, and free taxi rides. She was rejected on every request but once. Then she got fully made up with heels, make up, and a revealing dress. She basically has everything thrown at her for free.

The most depressing part of this is that I’m not even surprised.

hahahahaha this isnt sad.. its awesome. and not surprising.

yea i don’t get why people are surprised or depressed about that….and so what, it’s awesome getting things for free

symmetry, health, strength = “beauty” = good genetics = monkey mating drive developed over millions of year to find the best genes to reproduce with = get the fuck over it. meh, the same goes for good looking PEOPLE in general.
