Your body is your first home and your last home. It is the only home you will have throughout your entire time on Earth. Love it. Make it sturdy so that it can whether the storms that pass through your life. Learn to be at peace inside your body. Be grateful to it for surviving the times you might have tried to burn it down.
Oh no I can’t slow down,
I can’t hold back
Though you know, I wish, I could,
Oh no there ain’t no rest for the wicked,
Until we close our eyes for good.

Victims of sexual assault expect privacy. But 16-year-old Jada was violated all over again once explicit images from her rape surfaced on Twitter. So Jada decided to take her story public.
“There’s no point in hiding,” the Houston teen tells KHOU. “Everybody has already seen my face and my body, but that’s not what I am and who I am.”
I’m sharing this because certain people on twitter NEEDS TO BE STOP! Specially the ignorant side of black twitter! Every time something bad happen to a young black women or black girl twitter is quickly to explode it into something bigger! And Jada story is one of them! She’s a 16 yearls high school student she could be your sister,cousin, neighbor, or classmate! This tragic thing happened to her and these ignorant people on twitter looking for followers exploit this to point where the disgusting hashtag was created #jadapose. People tweeting pictures of themselves in the pose in which Jada was found! What I find even worse about this its that a lot of the people doing these poses are young black men and women. Something like this happen to someone who could possibly be your sister and instead of asking for justice you rather create a new meme? And some of them even argue “oh how do you know she got rape?” Does it matter? a picture of an underage girl laying on the floor looking like she’s passed out is not something be laughed at EVER! Like @_kimberrrly said ”A rape victim’s trauma is not grounds for a new internet meme. Pls do not partake in such ignorance. Report #jadapose pictures.”
I’m happy and proud of Jada for speaking and not letting this disgusting thing becoming any bigger
Which brings me to what I’m trying to ask or say here when will sexual assault towards black girls and young black women will be taking serious by young black people?
i truly don’t understand what kind of world we live in.This is absolutely horrific and abhorrent. Look at how few notes this has. Now watch as the so-called feminists and defenders of women on this site stay silent. The black woman’s body has no value to this society except for how it can be exploited and dehumanized. This is straight up misogynoir. This is an egregious act. This shows how sick our culture is. Rape culture is so pervasive and normalized that many will see nothing wrong with this new meme, much like as was the case with ‘Trayvoning’ (though that was white and non-Black POC racialized violence). This is also why I stay off of twitter.
I got the Topshop Mom jeans oversized. xx
Memoirs of a Geisha and Moonrise Kingdom are the first ones that came to mind. x
Try Topshop Leighs and Madewell for skinny jeans and Topshop boyfriends or vintage jeans. x
I support gay rights and gay lefts, I support gay ups and downs, basically any direction a gay can go

I did volleyball, water polo, and swim team as a Freshman and, truth be told, literally none of my close friends were on those teams with me. As an underclassman, I made friends by just talking to people in my classes and by hanging out with people I had mutual friends/acquaintances with.
I started making friends with people from choir, cheer, and musical theatre later in high school and it turned out that those were things I was really good at. So, as long as you do the activities you’re actually passionate about, you’ll end up making connections with people who do the same activities.
From personal experience, the people who are popular are the ones who are confident and happy because they do what they want. The first couple years of school, I tried really hard to be popular and I ended up unhappy and unpopular but, after a summer of reinventing myself and finally getting the confidence to try out for the things I really wanted to do, I made a ton of friends. Basically, do whatever makes you happy, be friendly, and don’t worry about people not liking you and you’ll actually end up popular. It seems counter-intuitive, but that’s the secret. x
Now that I think about it, not really. I follow the people I like but I don’t keep track of trends or anything because I think it’s best to just have your own style and go with what you like rather than what’s popular. xx
I missed you guys too! I’m good, just relaxing after about 12 hours of plane rides yesterday, thanks. xx
