"THIS PICTURE WILL NOT CHANGE THE WORLD, BUT I STILL NEED FEMINISM AND I’M GOING TO REALLY, REALLY TELL YOU WHY":
-Because I got called a whore for wearing a short plaid skirt when I was 10
-and because when Nujood Ali from Yemen was 10 she got divorced
-Because black girls’ names became my classmates’ favorite “joke” when I was 11
-and because when an 11-year-old girl in Texas was raped by 18 men the New York Times wrote of how the girl “dressed older than her age”
-Because I started counting calories when I was 14
-and because when Malala Yousafzai was 14 she was shot in the head for trying to go to school
-Because I heard a boy greet a girl with “hey slut” today at age 16 -and because when a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville, Ohio was filmed being raped by two boys at a party while unconscious the CNN reporters talked about how tragic it was because the rapists had such bright futures as athletes
-Because I will have to watch my drink at all bars and parties when I am 22
-and because when CeCe McDonald was 22 she was sentenced to 41 months in prison for defending herself against a man who screamed transphobic, racist insults at her and then slashed her face with a bottle
-Because no matter what age I am the biggest threat to men will still be heart disease, and the biggest threat to women will still be men.
-Because it is not just about me, because it is not just about anger, because it is not just a JOKE, because it is not just about “hating men,” because it is not just about girls with vaginas, because it is not just about ending “slut”, because it is not just about white straight girls in Rookie magazine, because it is not just about writing on backs, because it is not just about the fact that gay men are “fags” but lesbians are “hot,” because it is not just about pictures of thin white girls being the only google image results for the search phrase “beautiful women”, because it is not just about writing signs, because it is not just about what she was wearing or how many times she said yes before she changed her answer to no, because misogyny is not just about one thing and feminism is not just about one thing and it is not just “a trend” and it will not “happen” in just one way.
-And because yes. It is about equality for EVERYONE, but first and foremost it needs to be about equality for girls, because they are not treated equally to men, in every single sense, and you are not going to take feminism away from me and call me bossy/hostile/aggressive and make this about yourself or make it into a joke, because truth be told, I’m not joking and I’m tired of explaining. If you want to call yourself a feminist, you work hard to spread feminism, you do not turn this into a contest of whose struggle is greater and constantly demand to know what you can get out of feminism personally. Feminism is not just about you, or me, it is about everyone. If you’re male and you’re tired of men being stereotyped as hyper-masculine, soulless, sexist, inherent leader-tyrant creatures, then go out and prove the patriarchy wrong and fight for girls, like someone with a soul who believes in equality would. Then, yes, feminism will be about everyone.

Ever wonder what it’s like to be an actor or actress of color? This perfectly sums it up.

Quote 26 Mar 313,707 notes

Depression does not always mean
Beautiful girls shattering at the wrists
A glorified, heroic battle for your sanity
Or mothers that never got the chance to say good-bye

Sometimes depression means
Not getting out of bed for three days
Because your feet refuse to believe
That they will not shatter upon impact with the floor

Sometimes depression means
That summoning the willpower
To go downstairs and do the laundry
Is the most impressive thing you accomplish that week

Sometimes depression means
Lying on the floor staring at the ceiling for hours
Because you cannot convince your body
That it is capable of movement

Sometimes depression means
Not being able to write for weeks
Because the only words you have to offer the world
Are trapped and drowning and I swear to God I’m trying

Sometimes depression means
That every single bone in your body aches
But you have to keep going through the motions
Because you are not allowed to call in to work depressed

Sometimes depression means
Ignoring every phone call for an entire month
Because yes, they have the right number
But you’re not the person they’re looking for, not anymore

cantfindaproper1:

This is Faberry. This is the best scene Glee has ever had.

And it’s all because Dianna Agron was offering something entirely different to the rest of Glee: a layered complexity to villain Quinn Fabray, who managed to be honest and true only in this scene with her rival. The intensity of it - it could have all been just a nasty exchange as the other ones they had during season 1 - is all in Dianna Agron’s gaze and in Dianna Agron’s breaking voice and in Dianna Agron’s intonations, to the extent that Lea Michele can only react to it in a way that seems truthful but oblivious to the layered subtext (whatever it is, we don’t know, we can only imagine), exactly like Rachel Berry (who is honest but oblivious) would react. So we have truth in this scene, and the most meaningful message that Glee has ever given us, because these girls are living parallel lives, and only Quinn Fabray seems to be aware of it. We get more than rivalry. We get more than a love triangle, or at least we get to the actual depth of the love triangle. What we get is a a consistent dynamic between two characters who fuel and inspire each other beyond every petty quarrel over teen love and popular boys. This consistent dynamic is the best that Glee has ever offered, yet Glee preferred to dishonor it and to play it down, to laugh it off and to break it up just because it’s easier to write subtext (of whatever kind) and pretend it’s all in the minds of people who are nuts. Faberry never existed? No, Faberry exists in this scene. It doesn’t matter if you see a romantic layer to the subtext or if it’s something else other than romance. This is Faberry. It’s up to the viewers to interpret what they see here.

But the truth of this scene remains. And, even though it was well written for once in Glee and the parallels it opened up were explored (get it right in season 2, get it right in season 3; on your way in season 2, on my way in season 3), the scene belongs mostly to Dianna Agron.

Rachel, the thing I admire most about you is you’re a girl that has never apologized for your ambition… You’re the shiniest star of all of us. Like it or not, it’s true. And as we get closer and closer to graduation, you keep hiding your life behind this stupid Finn-wedding thing? I’d never pegged Rachel Berry as the girl who’d be too scared to take on the world.
