Johnny this is the movie I loved that I forgot the name of
The feeling of actually being happy with a guy. Feeling love, that constantly grows and doesn’t give up. I learn more about who he is and notice more and more of the small details about him every time we’re together. Somehow, though our love is still growing, I feel like I fall 100% head over heels in love with him on a daily basis. It’s weird to me in a way how different it feels to know you love somebody yet feel sadness constantly because they don’t treat you right opposed to now, I know I love my boy, and I’m still incredibly happy. Sure, he does things that bother me sometimes, and mostly he does such tiny things which end up frustrating me, but it’s so tiny and unimportant that I don’t say a word, and then I randomly spend the day snapping at things that are so small it almost makes me laugh sometimes. I don’t even realize I get these random moments that I go into bitch mode until after I’ve already said something. Somehow he puts up with me and loves me regardless. And even though I get annoyed, he still knows how to do everything right. He makes me feel like the most beautiful and important girl in the room. He always is putting me first above everyone else, and he can make me smile or laugh when I’m upset faster than anybody in the world. I don’t know, my man makes me feel like maybe I can finally experience love while I’m happy instead of while I’m hurting and feeling stuck.
I think my favorite part about my relationship with Johnny is the fact that we have a very strong mental and physical connection. We’ve got crazy amounts of passion, also. Johnny, you know I love you. You also know that I don’t say things I don’t mean.You mean an incredibly scary amount to me, and I trust you not to hurt me, which is another new thing to me. I can not wait to see what our future together holds. Plenty of more happiness and good vibes to come. And if we begin to have an issue, we can talk it through calmly, not through a phone either, in person. All I know is I’m committed to us. I’m fighting until you tell me to stop, hell even after that I’ll fight for you until I can’t even move any longer. I can’t imagine us giving up, but I don’t know what the future is going to be like either. All I know for a fact is we’ve got each other, and as long as we know that to be true, we’ll have the strongest love ever. c;
and i wish i could sink my hands into your flesh and light lanterns
along your spine so you know that there’s nothing but light
when i see you.
if you take me on a date to a zoo, aquarium, or museum the chances of me having sex with you goes up by about 900%
Sorry, but if I take a woman to the aquarium, I’ve got more important things to worry about than sex with her. Like sea otters and sea…
Last month, a New Jersey middle school banned girls from wearing strapless dresses to prom. Administrators claimed that the dresses were “distracting” — though they refused to specify exactly how or why. Parents reacted strongly to the rule; some supported the dress code while others deemed it “slut-shaming.” On Friday, the school compromised by allowing girls to wear single-strap or see-through-strap dresses.
This is no isolated incident in the United States. Across the country, young girls are being told what not to wear because it might be a “distraction” for boys, or because adults decide it makes them look “inappropriate.” At its core, every incident has a common thread: Putting the onus on young women to prevent from being ogled or objectified, instead of teaching those responsible to learn to respect a woman’s body. Here are five other recent examples:
1. A middle school in California banned tight pants. At the beginning of last month, a middle school in Northern California began telling girls to avoid wearing pants that are “too tight” because it “distracts the boys.” At a mandatory assembly for just the female students, the middle school girls were told that they’re no longer allowed to wear leggings or yoga pants. “We didn’t think it was fair how we have all these restrictions on our clothing while boys didn’t have to sit through [the assembly] at all,” one student told local press. Some parents also complained, leading the school’s assistant principal to record a voicemail explaining the new policy. “The guiding principle in all dress codes is that the manner in which students dress does not become a distraction in the learning environment,” the message said.
2. A high school principal in Minnesota emailed parents to ask them to cover up their daughters. A principal in Minnetonka, MN recently wrote an email telling parents to stop letting their daughters wear leggings or yoga pants to school. He says the tight-fitting pants are fine with longer shirts but, when worn with a shorter top, a girl’s “backside” can be “too closely defined.” The big risk of having a defined backside, he thinks, is that it can “be highly distracting for other students.”
3. Two girls in Ohio were turned away from their prom for being “improperly dressed.” Laneisha Williams and Nyasia Mitchell were barred from prom this spring for wearing dresses that administrators considered “too revealing.” The girls say that they didn’t believe they were violating a dress code that said dresses couldn’t be too short or show too much cleavage. But one administrator told local news that the high school girls were only allowed to wear dresses that had “no curvature of their breasts showing.”
4. A kindergarten student in Georgia was forced to change her “short” skirt because it was a “distraction to other students.” It’s hard to imagine that a kindergartener’s outfit could be “a distraction to other students,” but a mother in Georgia told locals news there that her daughter had been outfitted in someone else’s pants — without parental permission — after the principal deemed the skirt the young girl was wearing too short.” The girl had apparently wore the skirt, and accompanying leggings, just one week before without incident.
5. Forty high school girls were sent home from a winter dance in California after “degrading” clothing inspections “bordering on sexual harassment.” A school board member’s daughter was among the 40 girls turned away from Capistrano Valley High’s February dance for wearing dresses that either exposed their midriffs or were cut too low. Before the dance, girls were apparently required to flap their arms up and down and turn around for male administrators’ inspection. The school issues image guidelines for appropriate dress on its website — though the images were nearly all of women, and the only male image depicted proper attire. One girl alleges that the principal told her, “Not all dresses look good on certain body shapes.” A grandmother of one of the girls who was turned away from the dance also said that a teacher remarked about her granddaughter, “What mother would allow her daughter to wear a dress like that?” Apparently the school did receive some praise, though, from the parents of two male students.
When most Americans think about “rape culture,” they may think about the Steubenville boys’ defense arguing that an unconscious girl consented to her sexual assault because she “didn’t say no,” the school administrators who choose to protect their star athletes over those boys’ rape victims, or the bullying that led multiple victims of sexual assault to take their own lives. While those incidences of victim-blaming are certainly symptoms of a deeply-rooted rape culture in this country, they’re not the only examples of this dynamic at play. Rape culture is also evident in the attitudes that lead school administrators to treat young girls’ bodies as inherently “distracting” to the boys who simply can’t control themselves. That approach to gender roles simply encourages our youth to assume that sexual crimes must have something to do with women’s “suggestive” clothes or behavior, rather than teaching them that every individual is responsible for respecting others’ bodily autonomy.
fuck school dress codes.
and not being able to wear dresses, shorts, or skirts that are above my kneecap.
and not being able to show my shoulders or midriff when it’s uncomfortably hot out.
and having a body that these kind of destructive rules have been inflicted upon.
This makes me sick to my stomach.
what. the. fuck.
seriously? yoga pants!!! come on people. what the hell are we turning into here, when people cant wear what they want because its a “distraction”. I will tell you what, people dont need loose clothes, because there is a thing called imagination! and if a person wants to imagine another person nude, trust me they will
funny, I can clearly recall being able to see some of the boys’ penises outlined through their pants when I was in school. they weren’t told to buy different pants. why? because no one expects a girl to make sexual comments or “be distracted”.
stop making girls feel guilty for simply having a body. instead, teach your sons how to be respectful.
I didn’t read the whole thing but YES. I remember guys would wear those shirts with the big arm holes where you could see their chest and nobody cared but if I wore spaghetti straps I’d have to change. They let the boys get away with so much. When I was a sophomore one of my classmates unhooked my bra during class and literally nobody cared.
