Persephone as a dark and off-putting goddess who worries her mother by hanging out with satyrs and making weird stuff like pitcher plants and Venus flytraps. Hades being charmed and intimidated all at once.

To the boy who said I should be more ladylike:
I will not cross my legs or twirl my hair
around my finger because it makes
me whole.
I will not bat my eyelashes at you
when you hold the door open for me
and I will not bat my eyelashes at you
when you don’t.
I will not wait for your text messages every night
as if I need your written validation
for my existence.
I will not sit back and laugh at jokes that I
don’t find funny because I can make a room
roar with laughter in seconds flat.

To the boy who said I’m “smart for a girl”:
I will not stop reading book after book
until I’m sure my knowledge can wipe you
off your feet.
I will not feel guilty when I correct your grammar
or point out when you have misspoken.
I will not bow down to you because your father
is a successful businessman and I will not
let you leave until you hear about my mother
who is a profound bio-chemist.
I will not stop using words that confuse you
and I will not stop discussing politics or
the woes of capitalism because my female opinions
make you ‘uncomfortable’.

To the boy who said he hated my body:
I will not spend extra hours at the gym
to keep you from seeing my thighs jiggle
and I will not eat food fit for birds
to ensure you can fit your hand between my thighs.
I will not stop wearing that skin tight dress that
makes my ass look out of this world and I
certainly will not break your gaze when
you evaluate my worth.
I will not stop applying winged eyeliner or bright
red lipstick because I’m not here to look
like your man-made masterpiece.
I will not be a product of your temptation.

To the boy who sees me as an equal:
I will not praise you as if you are a rare species
nor will I boast that you are one of a kind.
I will not drunkenly utter that “I’ve finally got one!”
to my girlfriends over wine
because a boy with a level head shouldn’t be
impossible to find.
I will not pin you up next to my trophies
or diplomas as if you are some sort of accomplishment.
I will not degrade you to what we have been degraded
to all along.

I will defend the girls who are told they are not ladylike
I will protect the girls who are told they are too smart
I will support the girls who are told they should fix their bodies
I will fight for the girls who you tell are not good enough
and I will praise the girls who simply do not care.

Equality is a right, not a rarity.

This is NOT the caption I want to see when I’m reading up on world news pertaining to Black Women. 

Yes, you are stealing our subculture and erasing Black Women from it. Don’t pretend you’re innocent and blame less because you are fighting for your rights as well. You can still perpetuate white supremacy.

This entire article reads as “You shouldn’t be chastising us for our wrongs, but thanking us for them instead because we can help you and you need to be grateful for that…As we steal your culture. “3,709 notes // Reblog

This made me cry so much. Louis is obviously taken by what the lady said about her daughter - I can’t even imagine how he felt. It’s almost like he doesn’t have any words to say to her after that. He cares so much and I hate it when people say he’s the worst member of the band - he truly gives me hope and inspiration. 

yall are more concerned with fuckboy louis crying over seeing poverty than the grandmother who has a dying daughter and has to raise her granddaughter in a poverty stricken place this is literally insane

^^^^^^^^ IMPORTANT ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
