A Proposed General Rule about Pictures of Naked People 

fishingboatproceeds:

fishingboatproceeds:

I mean, I’m not saying that we can enforce this as law or anything. I also might be wrong about this. But:

Just as a general rule, I feel like we should not look at pictures of the breasts or genitalia of people who would rather we not look at pictures of their breasts or genitalia.

As a corollary to that general rule, I would add that I don’t see anything wrong with looking at pictures of breasts or genitalia of people who have invited us to do so. There seem to be plenty such pictures for us to get a reasonably good grasp of, like, the diversity of unclothed human anatomy without having to look at people who wish we wouldn’t.

This seems pretty straightforward to me. Yes, the photographer(s) who photographed Kate Middleton’s grainy distant breasts were violating her privacy. But so do people who choose to look at those pictures.

So maybe we can just agree not to? And this goes not only for princesses, I would argue, but also for people who send things to their romantic partners, who turn out to be jerks and release those photos publicly. Or people whose phones are hacked. etc.

In this world where most every curiosity can be satiated, it seems to me genuinely heroic to resist the urge to look at everything that can be seen, and instead to respect the wishes of those who feel violated or hurt by the availability of images they wish were private.

Seemed a good day to reblog this.

So many girls saw this. Bless.

All hail the queen.

Let this sink in. She declared herself a feminist in front of a bunch of white women who decided they werent feminists, like katy perry, and then her husband and child, the things feminists evidently don’t have, were cheering her on and gave her an award

my life got about a thousand times better once i stopped censoring myself

and by censoring i don’t mean i suddenly embraced indiscriminate swearing; i mean i stopped trying to sugarcoat my past or my feelings; i stopped lying by omission; i stopped having guilty pleasures; i began unabashedly enjoying whatever i liked; i became very honest; i cut out of my life poisonous people and negative ideals, and i am so, so much happier for it

I met like pretty much THE perfect guy tonight (or let me rephrase, a guy with pretty much all the traits I would like in a significant other) and I very literally let him walk away. He seemed to like me back BUT I JUST LET HIM WALK AWAY. We spent the entire night talking about anything and everything, he even walked me home, AND. I. JUST. LET. HIM. FUCKING. WALK. AWAY. Like, WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME. Clearly I am not meant to interact with anyone I find attractive. I will buy a cat and just accept my fate as a crazy cat lady (even if I am allergic to cats) as this is clearly my destined path in life.
