"I got hit when I was a kid and I came out okay!"

sourcedumal:

Obviously not if you are happily talking about how you would beat your future children.

And notice how those who do NOT come out okay are told to be quiet. Nobody ever wanna talk about the broken trust, the anxieties created, the stunted communication between parent and child that lasts.

"Well suck it up because thats just how things are! Who cares about your mental health being fucked! I came out okay and so you dont matter! Our image matters more!"

If this doesn’t truly warm your heart then I’m not sorry. 

The look on people’s face when I tell them that my favorite shoot of the year so far is the one I did of my lesbian tattoo artist and her baby is ridiculous.

This woman is one of the greatest mothers on the planet, not to mention a phenomenal artist who did both my tattoos. 

I wish this world could see past their superficial image bullshit and really see the beauty behind someone who took the responsibility of raising a beautiful, fragile, baby. It’s so ridiculously gorgeous and it makes for a great story to tell anyone who can get their head out of their ass long enough to hear it. 

Tattoo Artist and Mother: Ofie (I love you always!)

my dad sent me this video of these little Afghan kids having a little free style battle to cheer me up and it’s just the most adorable thing ever. I need myself a hype squad like this.  

They are so adorable!!! I was stressed out over a calculus test, but this made me feel better haha


sliceofbri:

guys this super cute black girl came in my store with big, beautiful, natural hair and she was showing off her new red dress and i told her “you look so beautiful, just like annie!” and she and her mom didn’t know about the new movie coming out so i showed her the trailer and she said “mommy she looks just like me!” and her smile was so fucking huge

don’t tell me representation isn’t important
