n. ˌdan-də-ˈlā-dē A suitable life partner for a Dandelion, "Look at the lady and the lion-- they're so dandy together."
Being born a woman is an awful tragedy. Yes, my consuming desire to mingle with road crews, sailors and soldiers, bar room regulars—to be a part of a scene, anonymous, listening, recording—all is spoiled by the fact that I am a girl, a female always in danger of assault and battery. My consuming interest in men and their lives is often misconstrued as a desire to seduce them, or as an invitation to intimacy. Yet, God, I want to talk to everybody I can as deeply as I can. I want to be able to sleep in an open field, to travel west, to walk freely at night.

In the United States, access to tampons and pads for low-income women is a real problem, too: food stamps don’t cover feminine hygiene products, so some women resort to selling their food stamps in order to pay for “luxuries” like tampons. Women in prison often don’t have access to sanitary products at all, and the high cost of a product that half the population needs multiple times a day, every month for approximately 30 years, is simply, well, bullshit.

- The case for free tampons (via stuffmomnevertoldyou)

You know, I don’t think I’ve ever heard anybody suggest that toilet paper or paper towels in public bathrooms shouldn’t be free.  We’d consider it outrageous if that very basic necessity were to be missing, or provided only for purchase.

And yet.

Beth Ann… everything but the peanut butter… 

This was my ringtone for years: a completely over-exaggerated musical biography of my college love life, written and performed on the spot by my bestest Hannah McIalwain. 

Raemond the heart eating dinosaur 

She likes to take hearts in her dinosaur hands

They’re really small hands

But they can hold a heart just long enough to

Crush it

You crush that heart

You break hearts like it’s nobody’s business

You’re like the Chuck Norris of the dinosaur world

…neither of us graduated. 



why the fuck cant i have a best friend who lives 30 seconds away from me who always comes over and we just stay at each others houses whenever movies are so deceiving

Rae. We lived the dream.

Beth Ann. We’ve woken up.
