*cuddles up close to you* *puts my mouth by your ear* I NEED CONSTANT REASSURANCE THAT YOU STILL ENJOY ME AND FIND OUR RELATIONSHIP APPEALING
THIS IS ME
"You don’t seriously believe this, do you?" is what I wake up to regarding my feelings on GOP voting obstruction in Texas. Why yes, I do believe that the GOP is anti-women, why yes, I do believe that Texas needs Wendy Davis, and I do believe that they should stop acting like children in order to get their way.
I also hate hate hate hate the term “illegal aliens.”
Yes, I seriously believe the things I believe and I don’t have to apologize for thinking differently than anyone.
The situation for Women in Afghanistan is still very difficult, but it has improved a lot since 2001. And its happened because of Afghan Women. Its happened because of brave women who are doing brave things.
Afghan Cycles- Afghan Cycles introduces the first women to ride bikes in the country, illustrating the gender and social barriers that the team is breaking, one pedal stroke at a time. Highlighting 4 of the 12 teammates, we look at their lives on and off the bike. From training on dangerous trucking highways to following them through a typical day in Kabul, the film shares the intimate story of these brave and passionate young women who feel free when they are on their bikes in an otherwise oppressive culture.
In case you were wondering, my girlfriend is the best fucking woman in the world.
This month, though it’s only been around for 11 days, has been really long and really rough. But she says the most beautiful things. She gives me the most incredible hope. And sometimes she doesn’t listen when I tell her how wonderful she is, because she doesn’t think so. But she’s my whole life, and she is my best friend. My girlfriend is the only thing that keeps me whole, and for once in my life I feel safe and so loved. And I don’t have to worry about what anyone thinks. I have her and she is what matters. She and me and us together is all that matters. And it’s so fucking crazy. It really is. It’s crazy and it’s amazing and it’s beautiful.
In sixteen days I’ll see her again, and after all these exams are over, I will be able to hold her and tell her I love her for real. And I’ll give her the promise ring that’s been sitting here with me at school for some months now. Last night, we looked at engagement rings just for fun. We both looked knowing the day won’t come for another few years, but still. Just sharing that with her and knowing it’s so real and that I’m the one she wants to marry and that we have something as special as we do, it’s enough. It’s so much more than enough. It’s everything.
Laughing and hearing her voice every day, that’s the shit I live for. That’s the shit that keeps me here and keeps me away from the dark places. I’ve never loved this much, and I never will. And knowing that I won’t ever have to go at anything alone, that I will never have to live another day without her—that is literally, seriously, all I need.
If I have you, I am full. I am whole. I am the world. For the world is not the world without you in it. It’s just another ordinary place. But since you’re here, it’s everything.
