Like way out in West Texas were there’s just nothing for hundreds of miles. Nothing but scrub and dry creek beds and maybe a bit of scraggly cedar here and there.
And all the muggles just think it’s a cattle ranch or some shit.
And the whole complex is set up like a…

#yesallwomen have a right to an education without fashion policing by sexist administrators
I mean this kinda says a lot about dress codes and school in general, the boys and their education are more important than girls. I remember my sister used to get sent to the office a lot because her shorts were like half an inch too short (according to the dress code), and they literally got a ruler out and measured! It must have been so embarrassing. And she sat in the office until my mom brought her something else to wear. Not only did my sister miss her classes, my mom HAD TO LEAVE WORK TO BRING HER SOMETHING ELSE TO WEAR. How fuckin stupid is that? I was going to put this in tags but fuck that shit. This pisses me off so much. And the bad thing is, I blamed my sister. I had so much internalized sexism thanks to shit like this. It makes me so sad and angry and I just want every girl to be able to wear whatever she wants and not feel ashamed or made to change. And like guys were able to wear these fucking cut up shirts where there entire torso was visible but god forbid a girl’s shorts be half an inch too short.
"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….
First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”
But here is what I think you should know.
You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.
You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.
You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).
You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.
In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.
In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”-Libby Anne (via newwavenova)
