We live in such a great time, people are so DEEP. But everyone in the same way.
It's a time of plastic sensibilities and half-hearted empathy. Chain production ideas. Brand new worn out ideologies. Sofa and blanket activism. Deanimalized humans. Anti system is trendy. Gregarism is a must. Alternative is fashion. Victimising is cool. Because e
verything is valid except what it's not. Because you gotta do it their way.
Everyone is SO DEEP INDEED.
But not me. I don't follow their rules. I don't play their game. Because I don't care. I'm unique. I'm different. I'm pure and I can see the truth. I'm actually deep.

Also, the drawing is supposed to be she decided what #aesthetics to wear for the day, because that's just how deep her thoughts are, how true her feelings and how real real are those cliches that she can get in the personality shop DEEP20. Too confusing?
when we are little
we are taught that hate is a strong word
but never love, no
the word love is throw around so casually,
it's no wonder why there is always heartbreak
we give away our love so easily
and hate so stingily.
yes love should be spread,
no hate should not,
but many do not realize the love they are spreading
should be the love they are saving.
there are two types of love
love that is positivity and
love that is your heart in action.
these two types of love often get mixed together,
however they should not.
one type of love is smiles and compliments and friendship, easily passed around amongst the world.
the other is all of those things as well, but different.
this second type of love should be savored, everlasting & forever
perhaps, if we did not give away our heart so easily, could we save ourselves
in the future we could teach our children
teach our children the struggles of love and loss
they will not make the same mistakes
if we taught our children to treat themselves as treasures to be earned
they wouldn't give away their love so easily
before that happens
we must teach ourselves
we must teach ourselves to be treasured to be earned
we must teach ourselves to not give away our love freely
we must teach ourselves of the delicate balance of giving away love and hate
we will love the real way love was supposed to be loved -anonymous
In A Room of One’s Own, Virginia Woolf tells her tale of Shakespeare’s hypothetical sister, Judith, who kills herself because she was unable to realize her dream of being a poet. Woolf argues that Judith will live again through the work of today’s women writers but we don’t just owe Judith our art, we owe her the conditions she lacked.

Egg Mother - Day 50
"Egg Mother" is my performance art piece symbolizing the amount of abuse and suffering experienced by female chickens in the egg industry.
For the entire lifespan of a chicken, I will take time to create an egg out of clay every day, no matter the day, to mourn the female chickens who are unnaturally forced to lay one egg a day, putting a tremendous amount of strain on their bodies.
For a female chicken, the average number of eggs laid (naturally) would be about 15 per year, and she would live to be about 8-10 years old. In the egg industry, female chickens are forced to lay an egg every day until their bodies give out from the exhaustion at 1-2 years, when they are then taken to slaughter for meat. By taking away the egg from underneath a chicken, she instinctually must produce another one, which becomes very hard on her body.
The conditions egg-laying chickens live in are some of the most cruel in animal agriculture. The typical cage is so small that they don't have room to stand up, turn around, or groom themselves, which becomes very frustrating as they go against their natural instincts. The cages are stacked on top of each other so that the chickens relieve themselves onto each other, while still being unable to clean themselves. The eggs fall through the bars of the cages to be collected. Free-range and cage-free are no better because they are grouped in larger spaces with more chickens, where they must climb on top of each other with no real room to move.
Some people believe that buying local or organic eggs from smaller farms or backyard chickens is humane, however the chicken is still being forced to produce an extreme and unnatural amount of eggs, thus putting unnecessary abuse on her body and shortening her life.
Although this piece focuses on the life of female chickens, it should be noted that a frequent practice in the industry is the grinding up of male chicks alive in machines similar to wood chippers after they hatch. Because they don't lay eggs, it doesn't make much economical sense to keep the male chicks alive.
Eggs (as well as all animal products) are unnecessary, unhealthy, replaceable, and never humane.
The idea that there are indefinitely two sexes is ludicrous and always has been. Medical science has long since proved that there are mutations of sexes (intersex species); it seems like lately people forget that hermaphrodites exist, not just in human form, but also in insects and plants. Gender and sex are not the same thing and scientifically there was never female and male. As long as the words: 'evolution' and 'mutation' exist, there is always going to be more than one gender.
I'm also not under the category "feminist" so please don't throw labels at me or I'll laugh at you in educated black women.
. "“Intersex” is a general term used for a variety of conditions in which a person is born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn’t seem to fit the typical definitions of female or male. For example, a person might be born appearing to be female on the outside, but having mostly male-typical anatomy on the inside. Or a person may be born with genitals that seem to be in-between the usual male and female types—for example, a girl may be born with a noticeably large clitoris, or lacking a vaginal opening, or a boy may be born with a notably small penis, or with a scrotum that is divided so that it has formed more like labia. Or a person may be born with mosaic genetics, so that some of her cells have XX chromosomes and some of them have XY."
This is sadly what so many Saudi women think like. I get attacked by a lot of Saudis for being "ungrateful". I get cursed and threatened everytime I post something. They think that their men giving them food, internet, and an allowance equals freedom. Would I need to be given this stuff if he let me get a job?
They think that their men agreeing to take them out, allowing them to study, not beating them, or raping them is being treated like queens. They don't know what freedom is, that's why so many of them are against feminism. They think feminism is women being "whores". They even deny the mistreatment so many Saudi women like myself get. They claim that abused women are lying to ruin the image of Saudi Arabia and Islam.
Some Saudi and Muslim women actually believe that western women are jealous of how we're treated like in Saudi. They're so naive it hurts. They think they're envious of us being powerless under our men!
We should have the right to choose our own path in life, we're adults and we shouldn't need a man's permission to study, drive, or to go to the market.
If you like your mistreatment and truly believe you are a queen then stay quiet and don't fight against other women's rights.

Na República de Gilead, mulheres que conceberam no passado passam por um treinamento/doutrinação e conquistam três oportunidades de procriar o herdeiro de alguma família a qual será designada.
Um receptáculo valioso. Uma Aia.

Todas são propriedade do governo. Nenhuma é digna.
Offred, por exemplo, abandonou o próprio nome e com ele, sua individualidade e capacidade de ser. Ela sobrevive como pode, como ditam... E essa é a sua história.
Atwood narra os "e se" que nos aterrorizam. Os reflexos de uma sociedade insaciável, que pouco se preocupa com o resultado de seus atos egocêntricos, subvertendo as minorias e conspurcando valores e atitudes.
Os direitos suplantados por (velhos) mandamentos. A fé mascarada de obediência e a justiça abandonada.
O valor da vida superável pelo custo dela, numa distopia que vai além da ficção, afinal, somos nós que escrevemos o futuro.

“ La vida ha pasado por ti justo de la forma que debió pasar”. He estado leyendo sobre las energías (energía vital) y como hacemos un bueno uso de ella, y me he encontrado con algunas ideas bien interesantes que me encantaría compartir: 1. Partiendo del hecho de la vida es energía, de que el universo es energía en su totalidad y de que nos relacionamos a través de fuentes de energéticas, tenemos una frecuencia y una vibración de la cual somos totalmente responsables hacer un buen uso de ello dependerá del cuidado que le demos y entiendo que nos relacionaremos con fuentes energéticas similares a lo que somos y proyectamos. 2. Cuando sintonizamos un solo tipo de frecuencia vibratoria (y nos estancamos allí)• te encontrarás con las mismas lecciones, situaciones o personas una y otra vez. Ejemplo si elijo vibrar desde la víctima me encontrare con agresores en todas partes. 3. Para elevar nuestra vibración y que nuevas cosas entren en nuestra vida sin tanta ‘lucha y pelea’, debemos poner en orden, minimizar y sobre todo identificar dónde está nuestra Fuga de energía ( qué lugares, objetos, personas, situaciones) consumen más de mí de lo que deberían, es decir donde me dreno. 4. Cuando acumulamos no dejamos espacio para lo nuevo • cuando ordenas, limpias, desechas y le das un lugar a lo que ya no está y no sirve, le envías directamente un mensaje al universo disposición y deseo a lo nuevo. 5. Uno nunca es la misma persona, ni la misma materia, ni la misma energía; estamos hechos para reconocernos, para ver nuestro poder, para movernos y evolucionar e aquí la importancia de mirarme y mirar mi fuente energética • para mirar a otros primero debo saber donde estoy, que soy y como vibro. #buenasvibras#mujer#100dayproject#100diasmujerholistica#energia#color#espiritualidad#escrituracreativa#frecuencia#vibra#yoga#manaste#fé#amor#orden#dejarir#minfulness#feminism#femenino#arte#dibujo#aquiyahora#consciencia#psicologia#psicologiaonline
Some random account messaged me out of blue asking if I was bisexual or lesbian. Then why I asked why they said I was sexy.First of all A)my SEXUALITY IS NOT AN INVITATION and B) There is a higher likelyhood of a woman "giving you a chance" if you are respectful of the fact that she is person and who is worth more then HOW THEY LOOK!!!! Sorry, I'm still mad people think that degrading women will get that a date.
Dedicated to all the mistreated girls out there!
Do you feel like a man when you push her around?
Do you feel better now as she falls to the ground?
Well, I'll tell you, my friend, one day this world's gonna end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has found...
