This is the bs that shows up on google search for Asian and when I try to tag my tumblr and twitter posts “Asian.” Try and tell me this Asian fetish and racism ain’t real.
I literally feel nauseous. A little girl in a bathing suit and the caption is “legendary trap”. Are.. you serious. No.
There’s also a dick photoshopped on her so that too

Very good words, especially for some of us (me included). It took me a very long time to stop apologizing for being myself, and I still forget sometimes.
The problem is, when you’re female, you’re taught to apologize A LOT. We’re taught to apologize for having to go past someone, even if we’re bleeding and they’ve been there for half an hour. We’re taught to apologize even when we’ve been wrong all year. We’re taught to apologize if someone else doesn’t like our clothes; we apologize if someone else picked the restaurant and then hates what they ordered.
We even say “I’m sorry” when we’re making a genuine point about real information or our real feelings.
Time to stop being sorry unless we turn around and inadvertently break someone’s nose with a raised elbow. Or forget a birthday.
You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge.
Apologize for mistakes. Apologize for unintentionally hurting someone — profusely. But don’t apologize for being who you are.
The thing that sucks about mental illness is that if you aren’t depressed enough, suicidal enough, bad enough, nobody cares. Nobody cares until you reach their standard, and that standard is when your problem is bad enough to effect them
The amount of people who can relate to this makes me equally incredibly sad and immensely angry
