when there’s a girl who finally likes you and you think she’s going to confess to you but you like another girl so before she gets the chance to tell you she likes you, you start telling her how there’s another girl who you like but then an older city boy appears and you assume it’s her boyfriend and that you completely misunderstood the situation
“One night I asked him how he felt about me, and if he could ever see us going all the way… if he was serious. He told me exactly what I wanted to hear. He said he loved and cared about me–that I was special. So you can imagine the shock I felt when barely three days later I get a text from him stating how he’s not ready to be in anything serious and how he needs some space to figure himself out. Figure what out, Fenix? Huh? The man is thirty-eight. What does a thirty-eight year old grown ass man need to figure out?”
“–No. I opened Instagrm the other night and you know what I seen? This bitch having a grand ‘ol time with his ex. The same woman he claims didn’t give two shits about him, Fenix. Yes. He told me all about his relationship with Aniyah and how that was over and how she didn’t want anything to do with him. Now look at his bitch-ass. I can’t believe this.”
A/N: Request from @btrombley13: You should write a Gaston x reader where, much like Belle, he just keeps trying to win her over but the reader just keeps denying. Maybe where the reader continously teases him, whether it’s by joking with him or wearing a dress which just compliments the reader in best ways. I just thought that would be funny and actually kind of cute. Cause lets face it, Luke Evans Gaston is amazing ^_^ have a good day :)
A/N: Sure! Of course! I hope this was what you were looking for!!
For years, Gaston offered you his heart and hand, but you would respectfully decline his wish. You liked Gaston and all, but you feared of settling. You didn’t want to settle to early on in life. You were young and ambitious. Plus, Gaston and you have been companions longer then before Gaston showed you signs of love. You also didn’t want to see that kindled relationship be destroyed if things fell through. Gaston, on the other hand, knew he had you reeled in, it only just a matter of time. But since you and Gaston were still only friends, you were certainly not shy from the idea of messing with one another.
I’m imagining that Lukas has a major
Come to Mila moment about his repression when after a battle Alm is so ecstatic they won he hugs his nearest comrade, which happens to be Lukas, and his body feels so touched starved that he hugs back and just. Hugs Alm for a little bit longer than necessary. I know based on DLC Lukas was courting a girl, but based on his support with Python and influence of @markoftheasphodel ’s reading of him as Ace and homoromantic I don’t see it getting very physical, plus Clive’s views as him being a “cool observer” he doesn’t really get physical touch while in the Deliverance, which multiple months of not being touched positively is probably. Not. The best.
Alm eventually taps his shoulder because everyone is starting to stare and it hits home for Lukas that some of his physical needs are also not being met, and he lets go, going back to how he usually acts, but inwardly a little shaken. but he doesn’t bring it up to the others because he thinks it will make them feel uncomfortable, or confused, until he starts to notice after battles or during tactics meetings, whenever Alm wants his attention he pats his shoulder or touches his arm. Lukas is Surprised but doesn’t comment. Then it goes from Alm to Python slinging an arm over his shoulders after practice, Forsyth patting him on the back after a sparring match, and soon enough nearly everyone in the army has found ways to show Lukas tiny bits of physical affection. Lukas doesn’t comment on it, but he’s grateful.
I feel empowered the fact that I can look the way that I do on stage and in photos - I can look that way any time I want. And I feel like it’s important message to other women that they can do it, too.
- Married men commit suicide at a HIGHER RATE in our society.
- A married man lives his life supporting his wife and children.
- When he faces an abuse, we as society, are INDIFFERENT to him [eg “He is lying, men are stronger”, “He must’ve abused her”, “He probably deserved it”, “It’s a rare scenario”].
- A man is severely assaulted by his wife or girlfriend EVERY 14,6 SECONDS.
- When a man is battered by his spouse, there is NO SHELTER which could take him.
- The goverment which should protect him, will IMPRISON him EVEN IF HE’S FALSELY ACCUSEDd by his wife. He will LOSE HIS JOB and will be SUBJECTED TO SOCIAL SHAME..
- FAMILY COURTS INCENTIVISES HIS ABUSER BY EXTORTING MONEY FROM HIM.
- Divorce ALIENATES him from his children, TAKES AWAY his house and his money.
- A man who has lost his children, house and social image, RECEIVES NO HELP from the same government which he pays tax to.
- All this helplessness LEADS to DRUG and ALCOHOL ABUSE, which also makes him DEPRESSED and SUICIDAL. THIS IS A GLOBAL PHENOMENON.
Lists of various suicide statistics per year of men which FAR EXCEEDS women’s rates [ America: 1727m - 546w, India: 63,343m - 31,92w, Australia: 1727m - 546w, Canada: 2989m - 501w, Lithuania: 952m - 186w, Russia: 35608m - 7247w, UK: 4552m - 1493w ]. So many men kill themselves EVERY YEAR. What are we doing about it?
Putting your GIRL out over a man is about the lowest thing a woman can do. Unfortunately too many black women would rather have sorry ass niggas in their house. This is one of the reasons why I don't ever want to hear another nigga run his sorry ass mouth about girls being coddled. In the bc , where are black girls coddled? The only thing being coddles is grown ass niggas and their sons. This shit has got to stop.
Low is an understatement. Picture being so desperate for a man that you would toss your offspring to the wolves just to keep that man around. Smh This is so rampant in the black community that it’s become a norm. Black mothers throwing they’re daughters out at young ages. Blk mothers accusing they’re daughters of lying about sexual assault. Black mothers forcing their daughters to take care of their fatherless siblings, leaving the oldest daughter emotionally and physically drained. And black mothers allowing their rogue sons to lay around the house doing absolutely nothing while they require their daughters to either become something, the care of the home, or risk being disowned. The irony is that the same daughters that these blk mothers treat like hot garbage, are the same daughters that are expected to take care of their mothers when she’s old and decrepit. Daughters are not revered in the black community. Boys and men are. They’re coddled and infantilized while black girls are expected to walk the straight and narrow while bearing all of the burdens.
I cant tell you how many posts i have read on this website, screenshots of twitter, and links of facebook that just assume everything about men to make women the victim.
“Men dont have restrictions on what they can wear. Women do.”
“No man has ever been raped after drinking too much, but this is an everyday fear for women.”
“Women need to be taught that their lives matter, like men are taught from birth.”
“Women have to be wary walking home alone. Men do not have this fear.”
“Female prisons are dangerous. Female prisoners need to feel as safe as male prisoners.”
These are the posts. These are the things we look up when checking your concept of equality. This is what plagues your blogs, and we have to sit here and watch you pretend like men do not face any issues.
Stop assuming men dont deal with issues to further your activism. Stop generalizing issues as womens issues. Stop comparing men and women when all you have to back it up is your overwhelming bias, especially if you are quick to mock and ignore men who bring up that they do in fact deal with these things.
All of this is just selfish. You want it to be all about you and it’s selfish.
to all the girls that have just stopped shaving their legs and hate the prickliness, think the hair looks darker than it ‘should be’ or that you have too much and are thinking of going back to shaving
to all the girls who threw their makeup away or just used the last of it up last week and consciously decided not to buy more, who look in the mirror before they leave the house and think they look tired
to all the girls who know how our patriarchal capitalist system targets women and makes them feel inferior with these meaningless alterations to our bodies, without all these accessories and adjustments, and are trying little acts of resistance in their own lives but are struggling with the insecurities we all have felt
i see you, i support you, it gets easier. People stop commenting. People don’t look down at other people’s legs nearly as often as you may self-consciously look at your own. i know you are also probably facing pressure from friends and family. The people who love you too will either stop caring or stop noticing, maybe even support you eventually.
I never wore a lot of makeup, and never daily, but I stopped shaving in high school. If anyone ever needs to talk about the pressures to conform to femininity, my inbox is always open and anon is always on. you can ask for advice, vent, ask questions. if you want me to reply privately i can do that too just let me know.
I’m not really partial to singing in public. My voice is weird- low and croaky, the crow to my sister’s canary. She’s got a splendid voice and i don;t think of ill of her for a second, but she’s tough act to follow, so I really only do it when I’m alone in the car.
But it’s come to my attention that there are no really good female covers of my favorite smutty pop songs. Santana’s “Smooth” for instance. There is a lovely woman on youtube but she doesn’t really have that intense growl that a lot of male artists have, that I *know* women can do too, and that it’s lethally good when they do.
Started watching My Hero Academia, due to peer pressure from my Tumblr dash. Four episodes in, and it’s entertaining enough so far, but… It’s fucking 2017. Why do we still not have equal representation of female characters in anime?
