Mr. Alexander cited reasons for wearing high heels many women have known since they were invented: “It’s a power thing. You’re higher than everybody else. You make more sound. You walk a different way. It makes your legs look better.”
“But the fact is, men always get a much easier time about their problems than women do. Just look at Keith Richards. That guy has done more drugs in his life than I could ever imagine. But he gets celebrated as this cool survivor, while I’m branded as some shameless skank.”—
This is why I can never discuss my love of Courtney with dudes. They always fall over themselves to shame her for being “slutty” or a “junkie”. I had a guy do that once while wearing a JIM MORRISON t-shirt. Shit head.
“You don’t want to start setting up another rule book, like: “This is how you’re a feminist. And this is the way you dress. And this is the way you act. And this is the way you protest.” It’s like, some people protest carrying signs. Some people protest by making activist radical music. Sometimes people try to just make it through a day and not kill themselves, and that’s their activism for right then, because that’s all they have.”—
“Let your guard down”: This implies that I am leaving my perimeter vulnerable to enemy attack, and not in a sexy way. Am I a citadel in this scenario? “Try to be more open” means exactly the same thing and doesn’t remind me exclusively of Orcs.
“Assumptions are the death of a relationship. If you think you know what’s going on inside someone else’s head, think again. We imagine that love gives us the power to read one another’s mind, when all we are really doing is reading our own. It’s a great self-defense mechanism but no substitute for actual communication. The very best way to know what’s really on someone’s mind is also the riskiest: you have to ask them.”—Tonya Hurley (via objects-of-my-affection)
Describe what made your favourite lover your favourite.
Oooh british spelling! Fancy.
Our chemistry was amazing. Maybe it was a pheromone thing but even just the smell of his hair made me dizzy and weak at the knees. He is very intelligent and simply listening to him talk about things he knows a lot about turned me on so much. His cock was a perfect fit and he got so hard for me… our bodies fit together so well. He is the only person I’ve been able to get off on just plain old vanilla sex with. I never had to fight with him to use a condom and he was always perfectly respectful of my consent.
