Katie. 21 years old. Humanist. Optimist. Feminist. Student. Constant reminders to myself to not underestimate those I come in contact with on a daily basis. The human capacity to astound and be astounded will never cease to surprise me. Writing in my spare time serves as outlet for thoughts I dare not say aloud, but really, life is pretty normal here in the south.

Do not teach your daughters to be ‘pretty.’

Do not entomb her in a pretty pink tower
and insist that only the degree of her physical appeal
may set her free.
Teach her to fight her way out,
to consume books and spit knowledge
to lesser boys who insist she is just beautiful
and nothing more.

Teach her to love her body
not to manipulate and put a price tag on herself
as a defined worth
she shall be immeasurable
she shall be more than this.

Do not let her break herself down
when the boy in kindergarden hits her
because he likes her.
What are you really teaching her?
Pain and love are not synonymous
neither are pretty and perfection.

Teach her to be kind
to be harsh
to be demure
to be wild
to be sensitive
to be thick-skinned

But good god,

Do not teach your daughters to be ‘pretty.’

“Even if you come home late and I’m already asleep, just whisper in my ear one little thought you had today. Because I love the way you look at the world. And I’m so happy I get to be next to you and look at the world through your eyes.”

Theodore Twombly, HER (via 1-11am)

Publicity done right in an anti-rape campaign: double-page spread, pages glued to one another. After the reader forcefully separates them, the image above is revealed with the caption “if you have to use force, it’s rape”.

THIS IS BRILLIANT

Greetings from Imrie House
Cause she’s bittersweet
She knocks me off of my feet
And I can’t help myself
I don’t want anyone else
