“An Eruption of Mount Vesuvius”, 1839, Clarkson Frederick Stanfield.
"And my strong ghosts shall fade and pass
My love start fiery as grass
Wherever burn my fantasies,
Wherever burn my fantasies."
Muriel Rukeyser, from “Song” (via proustitute)
"Western culture has things a little backwards right now. We think that if we had every comfort available to us, we’d be happy. We equate comfort with happiness. And now we’re so comfortable we’re miserable. There’s no struggle in our lives. No sense of adventure. We get in a car, we get in an elevator, it all comes easy. What I’ve found is that I’m never more alive than when I’m pushing and I’m in pain, and I’m struggling for high achievement, and in that struggle I think there’s a magic."
Dean Karnazes (via jasonaech)

I can’t explain how much this quote means to me.


homophobia is stupid. who the hell is afraid of homes

"It’s always surprising to me how many young women think they have to be perfect. I rarely meet a young man who doesn’t think he already is."
 Hillary Clinton speaking at Simmons Leadership Conference (via kinginthenorths)


Stop it my dream

50 Shades is not misogynist. Christian Grey is innately psycho, and that’s the whole point. The idea presented by the book is sex is complicated.

Humans have violent sexual desires that many people don’t understand. This book explores those animalistic desires through an abnormal relationship. And *spoiler alert* Christian Grey used to be a sub.

Grey was in the exact same position Anna is in, and in case you forgot, Grey was the sub to a very dominant, very powerful woman. The sub/dom thing has nothing to do with gender roles. Sub/dom works both ways, and I think the books make that very clear.

E. L. James is under no obligations to make Anna a strong woman for the world of feminists. Weak-minded women exist, and women/girls reading the books will almost indefinitely come to the conclusion that they do NOT want to be like her.

If anything, the books promote feminism by conveying the inner turmoil of this demure woman as she comes to terms with her sexuality.

And anyway, there’s nothing wrong with a little S&M.
