apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad f**k” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
I love you Mara Wilson.
You can definitely keep subtly pushing the message on her that he is abusive, pointing out the things he does that are clear signs of abuse. I say “subtly” because it is common for victims of abusive relationships to isolate themselves with their abusive partner when they don’t feel supported for staying in that relationship. Every time your friend brings up something that her partner did that YOU recognize as abusive, you could ask questions about it that force her to explain WHY it was wrong, by saying something like “Wait, so you said “no” but he didn’t listen?” or “Why didn’t he just let you stay at the party and HE leaves?”. Phrase the statements in a way that points out how he doesn’t listen to her, doesn’t show her respect, or makes choices that ignore her desires and are selfish. It’s best if they are in the form of a question so she is implicating him. You can also reference past things he’s done, so for example if she comes to you about something shitty he did, say “Wait, am I imagining this or didn’t he do this same thing two months ago?” Make it clear that this is a pattern of his. Say things like “I really hate the way [boyfriend] treats you. You deserve to be heard and respected.” Tell her “I’ll support you when you are ready break up with him.” so she knows that she won’t have to struggle through that difficult time alone. Follows have any other suggestions?
Namaste means “my soul recognizes yours” not “I tripped really hard at a festival once and now I’m filled with the wisdom of the Earth”
being a feminist is like trying to fix a giant hole in the wall and discovering that the entire wall is rotting and filled with termites and you have a lot more work to do than you thought you did
not all termites
Last night I made these drawings in my sketchbook for a zine I’m making called WARPED.
It was fun making looser/weirder stuff than I usually do.

Fashion! Put It All On Me ➝ Zuhair Murad Pre-fall 2014 [3/3]
that would make the funniest fucking story ever. Due to a mix up at the factory, the template for incantations that was supposed to a publishing company of dark art books is sent to a feminine products factory. Girl then accidentally summons Satan with period blood. Satan gets confused because its “dead blood” and when he shows up he realizes the sacrifice was done incorrectly so he cannot take the girl’s soul but now is bound to do her bidding because oops his bad, he showed up anyway.
