Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.

(Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us).

I want to make you feel so fucking happy that you forget every bit of sad in you —Nahilliam Truspear (via truornah)
In time, the hurt began to fade and it was easier to just let it go. At least I thought it was. But in every boy I met in the next few years, I found myself looking for you, and when the feelings got too strong, I’d write you another letter. But I never sent them for fear of what I might find. By then, you’d gone on with your life and I didn’t want to think about you loving someone else. I wanted to remember us like we were that summer. I didn’t ever want to lose that. —Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook (via observando)
You teach people how to treat you by what you allow, what you stop, and what you reinforce. —Tony Gaskins (via purplebuddhaproject)
Women feel more guilt than men, not because of some weird chromosomal issue but because they have a history of being blamed for other people’s behavior. You get hit, you must have annoyed someone; you get raped, you must have excited someone; your kid is a junkie, you must have brought him up wrong. —Guilt Poisons Women by Germaine Greer (via mymangotree)
If boys are treating you like shit, walk away. They don’t deserve to have people like you in your life. I know that can be a difficult and daunting task, but you deserve the world my beautiful girl, and sometimes those boys need to learn the hard way of how they can lose something that is so special to them. You are strong, and you are brave. Wait for the right time, and it will come; I promise —My beautiful dad (via g-a-z-e)

Get excited about the little things. About wearing a new outfit for the first time. About Sunday brunches with your best friends. About the new cute guy in your class. About finding an extra dollar in your pocket. About anything that even remotely makes you happy because as you grow up, passions fade and enthusiasm gets mistaken for foolishness. So don’t let the grey world stop you from shining. —note to self (via themilkywhiteway)
You had me at a point where I would’ve left the entire world behind for you. —

2:03am, I really loved you that much. (via tahom)

I still would.

They told me that to make her fall in love, I had to make her laugh. But everytime she laughs I’m the one who falls in love. —(via sensitizes)
Don’t ask me about school or the weather, ask me why I slam my door shut when I’m angry or why I’m scared of dying and what I would do if zombies were to attack —Taya (via milk-and-ice)
