The trouble is that, for women, being “nice” often translates into putting up with things we should never put up with. How many times has some creep sat uncomfortably close to me on the bus and stared me down, yet I’m too afraid to just get up and move, lest I offend him?

We smile when we’re harassed on the street or hit on by jerks. We laugh at sexist jokes. We learn that when we have strong opinions, we’ll be called bitches and that if we get angry, we’ll be called hysterical. When we say what we want, we’re called pushy or aggressive.

Part of learning “ladylike” behavior is about learning to smile politely when someone is being crude. Femininity has long been attached to passivity and to being docile. Men fight, women giggle and fume silently.

i just read through all of my passed posts since i started my tumblr. and this bear has come a very long way, my friends. there are things that have changed about me, there are things that have not. and i would like to proudly say that my wit is something that has not.

We’re all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that’s all.

Photo Editing

Hi there Tumblr Posters,
I want to be able to post edited photo creations on my page. What are some great FREE photo editing software programs? Thanks so much for your help, -Bear

oh how i love those deep breaths, those passionate and whimsical looks, those adolescant whispers of “kiss me”.

if i died tonight, i would want my friends to know that i couldn’t get through a day without them. i would want my family to know that even though we think differently, i love them. i would want my boyfriend to know that he is the best, and he made me the happiest girl in the world. and i would want my peers to look inside themselves, and find some way that i touched them, and some way that they can make a difference in someone else. then, i know, i could die content with what i had done on earth.

want danger?
