I’m self-sufficient. I spend a lot of time on my own and I shut off quite easily. When I communicate, I communicate 900 per cent, then I shut off, which scares people sometimes.

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be appreciated for how you look, I wanna be appreciated for how I look. But there is so much more to you than that. There’s so much more to life than that. Girls are not the photons that hit the corneas of boys. Regardless of your gender, regardless of their gender, you do not exist to please someone else. You exist for your own sake.

Working on my paper is hard on both of us.
Why does this set up for April 2014 Bello magazine seem so familiar??
Oh that’s right, I know why:
Ya’ll can put a tanned white girl on the cover in color, but g-d forbid someone with some melanin isn’t in black and white. whatever.
So tired of this so called “artistic shit” they so afraid of brown and black people upsetting they precious white customers. They probably do black and white because they overexpose black people all the time. Trying to act like it don’t matter when it comes to black people and photography.
Why are they so afraid of Black skin?
Check out the contrast between these search results. Not a single “loser”, “easy”, “desperate”, “stupid”, “scum” or similar insult in the search results for fathers.
Why, society, are single fathers so often seen with sympathy and admiration, yet single mothers are painted as a washed-up, disgusting strain on the system?
This is fucked.
I know this is rhetorical, but we know the reason.
Motherhood is not valued in this country, it’s demanded. We have people fighting tooth and nail against abortion, birth control, and then any social program that helps poor mothers. If the world sees you as a woman, you are expected to desire, birth, and raise children, and if you don’t do that, or you do it while poor, or single, or not white, you’re not only failing as a woman but as a mother.
But men, they don’t get defined by their reproductive abilities! They get to be multi-dimensional! And if they spare an occasional thought for the children they brought into the world, it’s a cherry on top of their identity as a person.
Women don’t get the luxury of existing as people outside of parenting, even in 2013. And until we do, this is the shit we’ll be dealing with.
"Motherhood is not valued in this country, it’s demanded."
This was meant to be a quick warm up, but it turned into a comic that I’ve wanted to draw for a while. This is something that is extremely important to me, and I appreciate it if you read it.
A while ago, I heard a story that broke my heart. A family went a cat shelter to adopt. The daughter fell in love with a 3-legged cat. The father straight up said “absolutely not”. Because he was missing a leg. That cat was that close to having a family that loved him, but the missing leg held him back. Why?!
Many people have the initial instinct of “nope” when they see an imperfect animal. I get it, but less-adoptable does NOT mean less loveable. 9 out of 10 people will choose a kitten over an adult cat. And those 10% that would get an adult cat often overlook “different” animals.
All I want people to do is be open to the idea of having a “different” pet in their lives. Choose the pet that you fall in love with, but at least give all of them a fair shot at winning your heart.
Don’t dismiss them, they deserve a loving home just as much as any other cat. They still purr, they still love a warm lap, they still play, they still love you. Trust me, next time you are in the market for a new kitty, just go over to that one cat that’s missing an eye and see what he’s all about!
this is VERY VERY IMPORTANT! the vast majority of adult cats that are entered into shelters ARE EUTHANIZED BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT ADOPTED.
The best advice i can give to anyone seeking a kitten is to PLEASE consider adopting an adult cat-especially one that is different, like the above-instead!
They will bond to u if thats what ur worried a bout! My baby was uhmm…2 when i got her I think. about 4 years later, and we are two peas in a pod. She follows me EVERYWHERE! We’re best friends! So don’t be afraid or think that if u aren’t there when they are growing up they won’t love you because they will!!
Spread this shit like wild fire, I bought Kyle as an adult cat but you would never know it, were practically inseparable.
