As of late the people close to me have found loving relationships with others. It slowly a begins to dawn on me that those close to me have someone, but I am still alone. I feel envious of their love and their ability to be close. I want what they have.
Stopping, I remind myself I do. I’m happy that those close to me are finding their own happiness with someone, and I’m thankful for the loving relationships I have with my friends and family.
Sometimes the best way to fill your heart is to realize it’s already full.
Jada Pinkett-Smith is aware of the critics that frown up their noses at the way she raises her daughter, Willow. Willow cuts, dyes and styles her hair as she pleases, a fact that bothers many who feel girls shouldn’t have that much control over their appearance at such a young age.
Jada decided to address the criticism in a Facebook post:
“A letter to a friend…This subject is old but I have never answered it in its entirety. And even with this post it will remain incomplete. The question why I would LET Willow cut her hair. First the LET must be challenged. This is a world where women, girls are constantly reminded that they don’t belong to themselves; that their bodies are not their own, nor their power or self determination. I made a promise to endow my little girl with the power to always know that her body, spirit and her mind are HER domain. Willow cut her hair because her beauty, her value, her worth is not measured by the length of her hair. It’s also a statement that claims that even little girls have the RIGHT to own themselves and should not be a slave to even their mother’s deepest insecurities, hopes and desires. Even little girls should not be a slave to the preconceived ideas of what a culture believes a little girl should be.”
I’m pretty sure I’ve reblogged this before but seriously this is something we should be teaching all our children. Their bodies are theirs, not ours as parents. As soon as you tell someone their body doesn’t belong to theirs you take away so much from them.

Hello friends! Remember this lovely post against dhmis? Well, apparently some people are taking it out of hand and actually death threatening the host of it all, I got this message today and I thought it would be a good idea to share.
Guys and gals I know you all dislike it when your fandom gets insulted, but please… Do not death threaten people to the verge of suicide, it’s rude and uncalled for and just… Literally fucked up. This isn’t right and is completely something childish to do.
And if anyone who reblogged the post to delete it to reduce all the messages he/she is getting would be wonderful.
in case u all forgot this commercial from 2007
Saving Face (2012), acid attacks on women in Pakistan
Meanwhile, in America, feminists are complaining about how dress codes are oppressive.
You idiots have never experienced oppression, and pray you never do, because this is what it looks like.
As a South Asian American feminist, let me remind everyone that oppression is not a competition.
Just because we fight one type of sexism doesn’t mean we don’t care about other instances of sexism that don’t affect us directly in our day to day lives.
My heart goes out to this woman and the hundreds of other victims like her. I want to educate people about these kinds of incidents. I support organizations that help women like this.
You may think that dress code issues are trivial, but they are related to a larger issue of women’s bodily autonomy, which affects women’s health and safety.
So please, let’s try to bring awareness and bring about change instead of insulting entire groups of people because they are facing issues that are less scary than the one presented.
oppression is not a competition
this breaks my heart.
