I press my nose up to the glass around your heart.
In the 1890s, when Freud was in the dawn of his career, he was struck by how many of his female patients were revealing childhood [sexual] victimization to him. Freud concluded that child sexual abuse was one of the major causes of emotional disturbances in adult women and wrote a brilliant and humane paper called “The Aetiology of Hysteria.” However, rather than receiving acclaim from his colleagues for his ground-breaking insights, Freud met with scorn. He was ridiculed for believing that men of excellent reputation (most of his patients came from upstanding homes) could be perpetrators of incest.
Within a few years, Freud buckled under this heavy pressure and recanted his conclusions. In their place he proposed the “Oedipus complex,” which became the foundation of modern psychology… Freud used this construct to conclude that the episodes of abuse his clients had revealed to him had never taken place; they were simply fantasies of events the women had wished for… This construct started a hundred-year history in the mental health field of blaming victims for the abuse perpetrated on them and outright discrediting of women’s and children’s reports of mistreatment by men.

hate to break it to y’all monosexuals but despite what the media would like you to believe, bisexuality isn’t the same thing as being morally bankrupt

Correlation does not imply causation. I for example am both morally bankrupt and bisexual, but the two are unrelated

After three years on Teen Wolf, you’ve had your fair share of makeout scenes. What’s been your biggest revelation?
Make sure they don’t have oral herpes. We have a couple of cast members who have cold sores, and when they have outbreaks, kissing scenes legally have to be rescheduled. I am not getting mouth herpes from Teen Wolf. You can take my dignity, but you’ll not take my lack of mouth herpes.

also a moment of silence for female characters who get a lot of shit but would be adored if they were male

I would prefer a moment of shouting demand this be corrected, personally.

i hit my coworkers shoulder lightly and he was like “you’re going to make me cry like a girl” and i was like “what’s wrong with being a girl?” and he was quiet for a moment then he looked into the distance and whispered “the social standards they’re forced to live by”

abuse is terrible. abuse literally changes your brain. it changes how your view yourself. it changes how you view the world. don’t ever let anyone teach you not to love yourself. the most radical thing a young person can do is love themselves. corporations teach u not to love urself so they can sell you things. partners teach you not to love yourself because they want u to belong to them. friends teach u not to love yourself because they also don’t love themselves. if everyone loved themselves this would be a beautiful world. i will never apologize for loving myself D I C K S Q U A D
