This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals—sounds that say listen to this, it is important.

This might be my favourite quote on writing ever.

Joe Calderone is a fucking drag character, you self-righteous, ignorant twat.

*facepalm* Yes, because everyone who cuts their hair short, wants to make their breasts smaller, and changes their clothes is trans. Did people completely forget the whole context around it? I’m going to guess that this was all an act, as in the character wasn’t her. Also, the character caught her boyfriend cheating on her. She then saw the bumper sticker hung up that read:

She then ran to the bathroom, cut her hair, bound her chest, put on skinny jeans, and a sweatshirt.

The lyrics are:

Days like this I want to drive away Pack my bags and watch your shadow fade You chewed me up and spit me out Like I was poison in your mouth You took my light, you drained me down But that was then and this is now Now look at me[Chorus:] This is the part of me That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no This is the part of me That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no Throw your sticks and your stones, throw your bombs and your blows But you’re not gonna break my soul This is the part of me That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no I just wanna throw my phone away Find out who is really there for me You ripped me off your love was cheap Was always tearing at the seams I fell deep, you let me down But that was then and this is now Now look at me
[Chorus]
Now look at me I’m sparkling A firework, a dancing flame You won’t ever put me out again I’m glowin’ oh whoa So you can keep the diamond ring It don’t mean nothing anyway In fact you can keep everything yeah, yeah Except for me[Chorus] This is the part of me No Away from me No This is the part of me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me… No Throw your sticks and your stones, throw your bombs and your blows But you’re not gonna break my soul This is the part of me That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no

Basically… she has her heart broken, changes her appearance, cuts away from some gender norms, joins the military and finds happiness and strength in who she is now.
Heck… in the rest of the music video, it doesn’t even look like her chest it bound anymore.

So isn’t it entirely possible that she didn’t want to look at the breasts that HE touched? Wanted to hide her identity then run away given the context of the song?
Situations aren’t good vs bad. There’s various degrees between them, just as gender and sex isn’t a dichotomy.
Also… may I point out that drag has been around for a while and that a lot of the first people to riot during the Stonewall Riot were fucking drag queens? Have people forgotten that drag is such a huge part of the LGBTQ+ culture? Why is it so great for drag queens to exist, but entirely different and horrible when Gaga dresses in drag?

But you’re not gonna break my soul
This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no

I just wanna throw my phone away
Find out who is really there for me
You ripped me off your love was cheap
Was always tearing at the seams
I fell deep, you let me down
But that was then and this is now
Now look at me

[Chorus]

Now look at me I’m sparkling
A firework, a dancing flame
You won’t ever put me out again
I’m glowin’ oh whoa
So you can keep the diamond ring
It don’t mean nothing anyway
In fact you can keep everything yeah, yeah
Except for me

[Chorus]

This is the part of me
No
Away from me
No
This is the part of me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me…
No
Throw your sticks and your stones, throw your bombs and your blows
But you’re not gonna break my soul
This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no

What are hip dips and why you stop caring about them.
Lately on my dash I’ve been seeing posts about hip dips, and anonymous questions on how to prevent hip dips or how much they hate theirs.
I just want to let you know that it’s normal. The celebrities or girls in your thinspo tags that you see that don’t have it either are wearing spanx, they’re photo shopped, or you just plain don’t see it.
I have never met any one that didn’t have one. It’s part of our anatomy, and on some is more noticeable than others. It all depends on your body type, muscle, and fat distribution. 
Most children in north america have heard this song in pre-school and kinder garden, but for most it’s been a while so I thought I’d give you a refresher course.
With the leg bone connected to the knee bone,and the knee bone connected to the thigh bone,and the thigh bone connected to the hip bone.

That is exactly what a “hip dip” is. It’s because the femur attaches to the acetabulum which is made up of all three hip bones: the ilium, ischium, and pubis.
You get a hip dip from being born with a skeleton. 

Those celebrities/thinspo girls that you look up to and think, “oh I wish I didn’t have a hip dip. They are so lucky they don’t have one.” Hate to break it to ya (not really), but they have it too. 

Hey look it’s Mily cyrus, Beyonce, and Kelly brook. They all have one!
Oh wait, I have more! All in their unphotoshopped glory! :D




Even ryan gosling has one.

Everyone has one, but sometimes it’s not as noticeable. Men and women have it, but it’s more noticable on women because our hips are generally wider. Like I said earlier it’s really about fat, and muscle distribution. Some women have it more noticeable, some don’t, but it doesn’t mean it’s not there. I know I have it, and I have never met anyone who is like “ew your hip dip is so gross.”
Remember the picture with Brittany spears vs Photoshop? Even she has one.

We have to Remember that we live in a world where spanx is readily available to smooth out our lumps and insecurities to common folk and celebrities alike. Along with photoshop to take away “imperfections” on celebrities so we can feel shitty about ourselves. All while we read magazines or see adverts with conflicting messages like “you’re beautiful” and an advert for make up right or weight loss tips next to it. 
You’re in trouble when you want to stop looking human. Seriously guy and gals, everyone has one as long as you keep your skeleton. 



aw yeah! i love the shit out of my dipping waist line, it reminds me of beautiful marble sculptures

[Image: A “woman” in a blue dress, facing away with head cut off. Text: I am a girl. I know I am a girl. I like to wear dresses and makeup and I like having boobs. So why is it that whenever I imagine myself to be having sex, I’m a guy, and having sex with guys? I’ve always dated girls. I love girls. But whenever I think of having sex with one of them I feel like I want to throw up. But I don’t want to have sex with men, unless I am a guy. But I like being a girl.]

I wish viagra commercials were as embarrassing as pad/tampon commercials. A bunch of guys coming up to their friend saying “hey buddy, we’re going to get some chicks and get laid, wanna come with” and this guy crosses his legs and puts his hands in his lap and whispers “I can’t” and then they all laugh and give him some pills and then this guy can poledance in a tram or a bus on the way to the beach, that sort of thing, I want to see that.
