the worst thing you can say to someone is ‘you’re too sensitive’ because that’s basically saying ‘you feel things more deeply and fully than I do and this inconveniences me because now I have to be more mindful of my own actions’
you’re not too sensitive, the world is just callous and stubborn. sensitivity doesn’t make you weak and callousness doesn’t make you strong.
girls masturbate girls grow body hair girls have stretch marks girls get acne girls poop girls burp girls have all normal body functions that men do stop stigmatising all of it im so mad
guys get sad guys can bake guys break down guys want to be held guys cry guys scream into their pillow guys can have a hard time being manly so if you want us to see what you physically do as acceptable don’t mock us for being emotional
I love this
#am i the only one who finds it mega fucking weird that while the op made it as a statement to people in general#the commentary was directed specifically at women?#for fucking real it’s not a ‘I WILL ONLY SEE YOU AS A PERSON IF YOU DO THIS FOR ME’ kind of thing#you don’t get to bargain ‘acceptance’ because it’s not acceptance at that point.#also i’m pretty sure a fucking huge part of the ~boys can’t be emotional~ thing#is the fact that ~emotions~ and ~feelings~ are feminine and it’s BAD to be female and/or feminine.#it’s not something women are putting upon men like the comment implies and i#i just really hate that people are ‘loving’ this post like it’s 100% acceptable. it’s a great effort but holy fuck…
I want you to imagine a ten year old version of yourself sitting right there on this couch. Now this is the little girl who first believed that she was fat, and ugly, and an embarrassment.
