“when the boys pull your hair and push you to the ground
during recess
I promise not to tell you that it’s because they like you.
when the teachers call home to tell me that
you pushed them to the ground in return
I’ll take you out of school early and buy
you your favorite ice cream.
when you get older and the boys
try to touch you when you don’t want to be touched
I’ll look at you like the sun when you come home
with anger in your fists.
they all tell you not to fight fire with fire
but that is only because they are afraid of your flames.
when the boys yell after you like hyenas
you yell back, baby.
I will not teach you to be afraid of your anger
so that you look for it in others.
I will not make you be the better person
because you already are.
you wanna fight ‘em? fight ‘em.
don’t you dare apologize for the fierce love
you have for yourself
and the lengths you go to preserve it.
when the boys try to tell you to soften up
I hope you make them bleed with your edges.
I hope you remember that you are not theirs
that their disappointment in you is not yours.
when the boys come to your door with pretty words and
angry eyes
I hope you show them the anger in yours.
I hope you show them just how strong your mommy
thinks you are.
I hope you show them the animal they can’t always
see in their own reflection.
when the boys come with the intention of hurting you
my advice will always stay the same, my darling:
give ‘em hell.” —

I will tell this to my daughter.

I hope you remember that you are not theirs
that their disappointment in you is not yours.

how does this capture the feeling of not going to Comic-Con so well?


Backstage at Varun Bahl, SS15 Delhi Couture Week 



can we start a club for teenagers who were constantly complimented on their intelligence when they were younger and are now having trouble coping with the realization that they’re actually of average intellect at best

can this club have a support person that helps us to study because we didn’t need to before so we don’t know how to now

Thor and Captain America aren’t the first comic book characters to change up their gender and race.

I love this article because it actually explains why people really dislike the race and gender switch-ups with our favorite heroes extremely simply: they’re jerks who can’t handle change and like to cover that up with “but it’s just how it is!!! Captain America has to be white and Thor has to be a manly man!! It’s just HOW IT IS…” with no further reasoning.
