quote You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge.

quote And you tried to change, didn’t you? Closed your mouth more. Tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake…You can’t make homes out of human beings. Someone should have told you that. And if he wants to leave, then let him leave. You are terrifying and strange and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love.

— Warsan Shire, For Women Who Are Difficult to Love (via quoted-books)

Sunitha Krishnan has dedicated her life to rescuing women and children from sex slavery, a multimillion-dollar global market. In this courageous talk, she tells three powerful stories, as well as her own, and calls for a more humane approach to helping these young victims rebuild their lives.

Sunitha Krishnan is galvanizing India’s battle against sexual slavery by uniting government, corporations and NGOs to end human trafficking.

Sunitha Krishnan: The fight against sex slavery

Please watch this. It does NOT conflate sex work with sex trafficking. This is a lady who is literally putting her life on the line to help rescue women and children who desperately need someone to stand up for them.

Officially got my dream job working for an incredibly selective and impressive pharmaceutical company, got my own place, and scored an insanely handsome man in the process.  Damn.  I’m good at pulling myself up from rock bottom.  If I can do it anyone can.  Stay strong ladies. <3

INTERVIEWER: Give me one of your purely satisfying mean moments. TINA FEY: The first thing that comes to mind is a more recent one, when Amy Poehler and I were in the airport last week in Toronto and we were getting hassled by this middle-aged businessman who was doing that thing that middle-aged businessmen do, being rude. And then Amy, in the middle of the airport, screamed, “Fuck you, you fuckin’ dick, you fuckin’ rich asshole.” And it was so satisfying—it was immediate release. She would probably be mortified that I told you. (x)
