" If a female student got drunk and had her car stolen the university would call the police. If she got drunk and had her computer stolen, they would call the police. If she got drunk and had her phone stolen, they would call the police. The fact that she was drunk would not even be factored in when assessing if a crime had been committed. But if she gets drunk and has her body invaded and her humanity stolen, school administrations are perplexed about what to do. "

The Importance Of Trust In A Relationship

We’ve all heard how trust is one of the most important factors in a relationship and how it’s one of the top things everyone is looking for in a partner, but why exactly is that the case? Why is trust so important in a healthy and happy relationship? Here’s some of the reasoning behind the importance of trust in a relationship:

  • Gives you the ability to be yourself. If you can’t fully trust someone then you won’t be able to let your guard down and be yourself around them. When we trust someone fully we can let go of the need to be “on” all the time and can relax and let go. If you’re afraid of being judged or made fun of or hurt then you’ll never be able to fully relax into the relationship.
  • Lets you reveal your true feelings. You’ll never be able to express how you really feel about your partner if you’re afraid that they’ll hurt you or that they’re not taking your emotions seriously. When you trust someone you can really open up and let them into your heart, otherwise we remain guarded with our feelings.
  • Allows us to imagine the future. You’ll never be able to see a future with someone that you can’t trust because you won’t be confident that they’ll be there for you. If you don’t trust them you can’t be sure that they’ll stick around or that you should include them in your future plans. If you want to start imagining a future with someone, you need to be able to trust them and rely on them.
  • Lets you fall in love. If you can’t trust your partner you’ll always be guarded, cautious and holding back. Doing this, we can never fall in love. It’s called “falling” in love because we need to let go and just let ourselves fall. If you don’t trust that your partner is there to catch you, you’ll never be able to let go and let it happen.

Anonymous:  I tend to feel horrible with myself because I'm not like all the pretty skinny blonde girls with eye color you can find in Tumblr. And I hate my breasts. They are small and I don't like it's shape. I have black curly hair wich is really hard to control, and black eyes. I feel I have nothing special that makes me feel pretty, my nose is Also ugly, I don't feel like I have Any femenin feature. Could you please give me advise?

know-your-body:

You actually sound really pretty!
Breast size doesn’t really mean anything. If you’re worried about how other people view them: everybody has different preferences. Some people love small boobs. 
Black eyes sound really cool actually. I don’t see them around that often! They’re unique!
I think that you should look at the “body positivity” and “body positive” tags, look around, and follow some of the blogs! The truth is, the vast majority of women do NOT look like what you see on the media etc. 
You don’t have to look feminine to be a woman! But if you want to go with the stereotypical feminine look, maybe wear skirts? Dresses? Other stereotypically feminine clothes?
And back to breasts, I post this link every once in a while. You’d be amazed how diverse healthy breasts are!

Life hack: if someone makes a racist/sexist joke, say, with total seriousness, “I don’t get it, can you explain it”

Then watch them crash and burn

REMINDER THAT IS IS OK TO HAVE:

  • stretch marks
  • long labia
  • a tummy
  • love handles
  • cellulite
  • large areolas 
  • NO thigh gap
  • jiggly thighs
  • scars
  • body hair
  • moles/birthmarks

THESE ARE NOT THINGS YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF. THESE ARE NATURAL THINGS THAT YOU SHOULD EMBRACE. THE HUMAN BODY IS BEAUTIFUL. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.
