"DO NOT CONSIDER A GIRL UNCLEAN AFTER YOU HAVE TOUCHED HER.
SHE IS NOT DIRTY.
SHE IS FIRE SHE IS AIR,
SHE IS THE MOST FEROCIOUS THING
YOU HAVE EVERY KNOWN."
- d.a.s, excerpt from “Letter to My Son” (via backshelfpoet)
"

I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again -

Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone.

Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.

If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time.

And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office.

"

you love him
so you let him
use your body even if
you can’t quite erase
the shame of it all

you love him
so you give him what
you’re pretty sure he’s after

and maybe nightmares were made
to give us a warning because
once he’s had you
he starts cutting
your heartstrings
until you are holding yourself up
with absolutely
nothing

but you love him
so you fuck him
because at least for an instant
he’s yours and yours
alone

even if you can’t stop the thought
that sooner or later
it won’t be your hips
his hands find
to hold.

"When’s the last time somebody fell in love with the idea of your kiss
Instead of meaningless sex
With your scent on their pillowcase instead of you on top of them
When’s the last time somebody loved you in the purest of ways
With your happiness in mind just hoping and praying you won’t stray
With their heart on their sleeve
Hoping you won’t deceive
because even if you did they would not leave …
When’s the last time somebody loved you ?"
