when i was a child i used to think teens were grown ups and when i was a teen i thought college students were grown ups and now that im a college student im just like what the hell is a grown up anymore
Now that I’m older than college age I’ve concluded that grown ups are a myth.
you can preach about slut-shaming all you want, but you can’t deny there’s something very wrong with 13 and 14-year old girls going out in skirts and dresses so short they barely cover their asses and shirts with necklines so low they show off cleave they haven’t got yet, drinking and even smoking and hooking up with guys before they even have a substantial knowledge of how sex and sexual relationships work.
Thank YOU HOLY SHIT
Obviously the sexualisation of young girls is a real problem, but the way this post addresses that issue lays the blame on the children themselves, which is completely unfair (and yes, is slut shaming). These things are symptomatic of a society that sexualises and objectifies women to the extent that even young girls, unable to legally consent, are dragged into that dangerous mess. In a culture where women have been taught all their lives that they only exist to be consumed / desired / objectified, how can you blame young girls (who are arguably more easily affected by such messages) for trying to conform to that?
Also, this post is expressly aimed at girls that allegedly don’t know anything about sex, so how can you so harshly hold these naive children responsible for their actions? They are just reacting to the completely confusing set of social expectations that they are forced to navigate as both women and teenagers. Obviously it’s horrendous - the sexualisation of minors leads to a whole host of extremely serious issues. But this is why we need to be protecting these girls, not condemning them. Whether intentional or not, the phrasing of this post implies that girls like these deserve to be slut-shamed, which is absolutely horrendous and ridiculous.
Feminist issues like slut-shaming, the objectification of women, and the sexualisation of young girls all feed into one another. The problem this post describes is directly related to our society’s objectification of women, and it is this that leads to issues like slut shaming. Don’t claim that these children don’t know what they’re doing whilst simultaneously blaming them for it. And definitely quit using this ridiculous logic to critique the very principles that would seek to address the problem.
you can take one man’s trash to another man’s treasure but you can’t make it drink
Fun fact: the blending of idioms or cliches is called a malaphor.
My personal favorite is “We’ll burn that bridge when we get to it.”
I looked it up b/c that was a very familiar idiom and how could it be wrong but then
yeah wow that’s spot on perfect

I had no idea how much I needed something like this in my life until now
I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.
1- I am glorious above all things
2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4- Show displeasure clearly.
6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.
