Matthew Zapruder, “Poem for Japan” (via larmoyante)
Osho (via phantogrampandora)
I’m writing/editing my essay on gender equality and seeking out resources and whatnot and I keep reading the comments and arguments below and I need to stop because I get so confused about the subject and my perspective keeps changing because I try and differentiate what seems to be right and what seems to be wrong but at the same time going with my own instinct and feelings and thoughts and it really sucks sometimes because I am so heavily influenced by ideas and debates in ways that result in me unable to make a decision or pick a side or anything like that and I don’t know if it’s because I’m so open minded to everything or I’m just confused or naive or dumb and normally I wouldn’t mind so much, but regarding this speech/essay I have no idea what to put down that would make sense and be fair and I want the audience to understand and really think about it. Someone was grading/critiquing my draft last week and said “you’ve got the girls on your side, appeal to males!” And I don’t even know, because I really do believe in equality for both sexes and that men do suffer and I want them to really think about the issue but at the same time women have suffered a whole lot and continue to in so many forms and they’re undeniably important and I’m just so scatter brained and conflicted and the more passionate I get about the topic the more confused (but educated) I get and I just don’t want to even write this speech anymore.
I honestly live in my flannels and docs
