Suddenly her mom’s silence matched Jackie’s own. “Oh, my God,” she murmured in disbelief. “Are you gay?”

"Yeah," Jackie forced herself to say.

After what felt like an eternity, her mom finally responded. “I don’t know what we could have done for God to have given us a fag as a child,” she said before hanging up.

She got a call from her older brother. “He said, ‘Mom and Dad don’t want to talk to you, but I’m supposed to tell you what’s going to happen,’” Jackie recalls. “And he’s like, ‘All your cards are going to be shut off, and Mom and Dad want you to take the car and drop it off at this specific location. Your phone’s going to last for this much longer. They don’t want you coming to the house, and you’re not to contact them. You’re not going to get any money from them. Nothing. And if you don’t return the car, they’re going to report it stolen.’ And I’m just bawling. I hung up on him because I couldn’t handle it.” Her brother was so firm, so matter-of-fact, it was as if they already weren’t family.

give me characters who have a lot of sex, but still identify as ace

give me characters who explicitly identity as asexual in canon

give me sex-repulsed ace characters

give me ace characters who are romantic

give me aro/ace characters

give me aro characters who are sexual

give me characters who identify throughout the aro/ace spectrums

I actually need to go to the store and I’m very stubbornly refusing to go.

its really important for men to stand up to other men who say terrible and sexist shit

because sexist men dont listen to what women have to say

literally the most important thing men can do if they want to call themselves feminist allies

Why girls stress over periods

  • The constant fear of bleeding through clothes
  • The constant cramps
  • Having to change pads/tampons every 2-4 hours
  • Having to deal with mood swings
  • Having to deal with boys going ‘Oh someones on their period’ 
  • When you stand up its like a waterfall from your vagina
  • Craving food to calm you down
  • The constant fear that you smell of blood even though you dont 
  • CRAMPS
  • Feeling over emotional
  • CRAMPS
  • CRAMPS
  • FUCKEN CRAMPS

YOU MEAN I DON’T ACTUALLY SMELL LIKE BLOOD?!

Our lives would be easier if guys understood these thiings.
