when people say years young instead of years old


(via say-that-to-my-abs)


Dear every person who says that a mental illness is not
a valid reason for not being able to attend school normally,

Say that to the counselor, the school nurse, the paramedics,
and the friend who walked me to the office on the day of my overdose.
Say that to the kids who saw me sleep through first and second period.
Say that to the boy who sleeps in every class.

Tell that to my teacher who had to talk me out
of suicide on a school night.
Tell that to my bio teacher who saw
me break down during a suicide prevention assembly.
Tell that to the housemates who have heard
me call the suicide hotlines.
Tell that to my freshman English teacher who tells
me I look so alive now in comparison to
how dead I looked freshman year.

Say that to any friend who has had to talk me out of suicide.
Say that to any friend who has had to calm me down
after an anxiety attack.
Say that to every friend and follower that has
come to me with thoughts of suicide.

Tell that to the kids who have failing grades because
they can’t focus, the ones who can’t make it through
a school night without having an anxiety attack,
the kids who sleep right when they get home and
straight on until morning, the ones who
have more breakdowns a day than meals a day,
the ones who have spent more time staring
at hospital walls than school hallways.

Tell that to the kids who cry every night.

Tell that to the teenagers in psychiatric wards and treatment centers.
Tell that to the family of someone who has just committed suicide.

Tell them that school is more important than their sanity.

Having an anxiety disorder is like that moment where your chair almost tips or you miss a step going down the stairs but it never stops

1. Because a woman brought into this world will inevitably be given pepper spray “just in case.”

2. Because by sixteen, a young girl knows how to avoid being sexually assaulted, while a boy of the same age does not fear sexual assault in the slightest.

3. Because a girl who mocks men is a bitch, and a boy who mocks women is joking.

4. Because a girl who has sex is a slut, and a boy who has sex is a man.

5. Because in a murder, the killer is at fault, but the blame of rape is often put on the victim.

6. Because we teach girls how not to get raped instead of teaching anyone simply not to rape.

7. Because a woman should put more clothes on if her outfit makes a man uncomfortable, because his self control is her responsibility.

8. Because feminists just need to chill out.

9. Because a 22 year old sex-obsessed virgin can murder 7 people, and the problem is that someone should’ve just slept with him.

10. Because not all men are predators, but yes, all women are prey.

There’s a fucking womanifesto for you.

rachelanne64: How can you tell if a product is vegan or not? 


For me, the best thing to do is to first check if it’s suitable for vegetarians. It will say somewhere on the packet if it is and if it doesn’t, you can probably assume it isn’t safe. 

Next, if it passes the vegetarian test, then go to the allergens section. This is where it will say what it contains and what it may contain. Do not pay attention to ‘may contain’, this is literally just a way for factories to cover their backs. Pay close attention to ‘contains’. This is where it will 100% state if there are milk and/or eggs. 

If it passes that test, you’re almost done! Then just have a glance through all of the ingredients in general. Look out for beeswax and honey.

If you spot E Numbers, be sure to give those a Google. Things like shellac and cochineal are often concealed in E Numbers so it’s very important to look out for those.

Sometimes E Numbers can be plant OR animal based. If that’s the case, leave the product and email the company before purchasing. 9 times out of 10 it’s absolutely fine but it’s always better to be safe than sorry. 

The other thing to look out for are fortified vitamins. Sometimes certain vitamins are derived from animals, for example Kellogs cereal vitamin D is derived from sheep. Just be cautious and make sure to always contact companies if you’re not sure. 

I know this all seems like a lot but I can assure you, when you’ve been vegan for a while, it’ll come to you as automatic as breathing. It takes me seconds to find whether products are vegan or not because my brain seems to just alert me to the buzz words ‘vegan, vegetarian, eggs’ etc. 

In some lucky cases, products are certified vegan already so they will say on the packet ‘suitable for vegetarians and vegans’. It’s always great when this happens but it isn’t often. The reason for this is because in order to get a vegan certification, it has to pass a number of tests such as not manufacturing in a factory that uses any non vegan products. This is quite rare and hard to find which is why vegans should just ignore ‘may contain’. 

Another reason that products are often not vegan certified is because it’s surprisingly expensive. For example, the English supermarket Tesco’s own brand of cosmetics is 100% cruelty free and vegan but it doesn’t have the certification because they do not want to put so much money into something that is not in demand. And this is something they have openly expressed to me on their facebook page. So if more people contacted Tesco and requested this, they would probably change their minds.

Anyway, so that’s how best you can tell whether or not a product is vegan. Sounds tricky but it’s very very simple! :)


I think the best part of being a woman is the sexual security that we have. I mean like even a straight woman could know that she’s not interested in women, but she can still sit on another girl’s lap and hold her hand and maybe even kiss her if they were that close. If two guys even make eye contact with each other they have to screech “NO HOMO” at the top of their lungs to make sure everybody knows that they are not gay.

If you’ve cut a negative person from your life, whether they were abusive or just someone who wasn’t a positive influence on you, at NO POINT in your healing are you required to let that person BACK into your life.

Your healing should never be contingent on you bringing people who have harmed you back into your space. Your healing does not require you to give these people a second chance to harm you.

Okay if you can’t fuck with a girl because of:

  • Pubic hair
  • Stretch marks
  • Scars 
  • Any other natural occurrence of the female form

You aren’t really worthy of it anyway

Take her as she is because she shouldn’t have to change for you. Go the Hell home fuck boy
