like. everything is empowering. ladies !! mostly and especially the things generations of women have combated! fuckin sugar daddies man. is where it’s at. $50 tube of lipstick. catfish your boss. catfish ur mom’s boss. catfish everybody. slayyy the patriarchy w ur eyeliner. how? like, tangibly? idk who cares it cost an entire paycheck and the CEO of the cosmetics company is a neo-nazi. sitting in a chair is empowering. brushin teeth is empowering. Everything you do is empowering regardless of context. who cares if every advance in the perception of gender roles has been fought for tooth and nail by feminist trailblazers who needed their husband’s permission to buy a car? that’s so boring and pastel gifsets of thin white girl gangs “weaponizing” femininity by performing it in a 100% conventional way is so much more fun! mainstream commercial feminism isn’t a regressive horrorshow born of corporate greed and its drive to keep women marginalized and divided in order to capitalize on our insecurities… every time you tweet “yassss” 2 a tweet denouncing fuckboys the patriarchy shakes in its boots. empowerment. empowering empowerment. e
You’ll fall for her. I’m warning you now. I can tell you this because everyone she’s ever kept in her life has thought at one point or another she might end up being the one. You won’t know for a while, thinking it’s just a usual friendship. But then you’ll realize you’ve never been this close to someone before. You’ve never been willing to be there for someone whether it be 3pm or 3am. You overthink everything and exaggerate every situation. So you’ll distance yourself, especially after she tells you that she thinks about you more than anyone else. But the thing is, you weren’t afraid that she might be falling for you, you were afraid you might be feeling the same exact way.
Can we just talk about how beautiful self ships are? Like really,
You find this character(s) and you get to imagine them with you, so much love. Love in both a platonic, romantic, sibling, etc sense. You’re able to create your own little dreamland that you’re able to run to when times get hard or when times are good. These ships aren’t based around what occurs in reality’s take on love, but actual love the way you want it. There’s no rules, no right and wrong, no end; there’s how you want it. Everyone is good enough and worthy to be loved and that doesn’t change in self ships, sometimes that feeling of being enough and worthy is more found in these ships.
Every self ships I’ve ever heard of and seen are always so lovely bc even if there are 1,000+ who love that same person, there’s always something unique and loveable in each ship that makes that character(s) perfect for you. Especially when you have a hard time seeing what is good about you, having others tell you “hey (insert whoever) would just love that and (goes on)” allows you to stop and think and maybe even start thinking of that “bad thing” about you as something loveable.
I was just randomly thinking about self ships and all the ones I’ve heard of and everytime I get so happy they’re just a true beauty each one makes me smile thinking of the shipper and character(s) together. I hope y'all know you never have to feel bad about a self ship of yours and that you’d be so loved by the one(s) you ship yourself with its truly a beautiful thing.
my parents ingrained in me from a very young age how every house has it problems and we shouldn’t talk about home issues outside our home because its shameful. so im silent but full of shame but if I talk, I feel it twice.
