Never get mad at someone with anxiety for apologizing a lot. It’s a coping mechanism and yelling only makes it worse. They don’t need tough love or anything like that. Reassurance that they are fine is the most important thing.

just in case you missed it

earlier today some guy said to me that he has “never oppressed anyone” & I still want to puke 

he also told me that the violence I experienced (from a male) was between me & that person & that it shouldn’t be talked about like it’s a thing that happens between ‘the two genders’

& I’m just sitting here with my jaw & tears on the floor

Rose hip syrup

Great for colds and heart health.

Gather rose hips with gloves as the tiny hairs in the flesh can cause contact dermatitis. It’s best to do this when the flesh is soft and mushy, after the first cold snap of the season.

3 cups made 1 litre of syrup for me so gather as much as you need for you.

Remove stalks but leave everything else and soak in water for ten minutes. Then drain, put in food processor and mix until only in small bits or mushy.

Put the hips in a pot, along with an equal amount of water. Simmer don’t boil (destroys vitamin c) for forty minutes.

Strain twice in a linen tea towel and discard hips (they make great compost).

Put liquid back in rinsed pan and add half as much sugar as liquid. Stir until dissolved and then bottle (canning is what you Americans call it I think).

Opened it will last six weeks in the fridge. Dose is 1 tbspn 3 x a day.

You can add elderberries, haws, blackberries, ginger, cinnamon..,basically anything you like to make the flavour a bit less sickly sweet (it tastes like liquid crapapple jelly).

I did something like this but with just elderberries & I know I am super excited to do it with rosehips because they are great !!!

Because we don’t speak about sex, there is no socially acceptable language surrounding it. So the language of porn has jumped in to fill that space, and that’s an issue, because in a male-dominated industry the language of porn is all too often male-generated. The person who coined the term “finger blasting” didn’t have a vagina. The person who coined the term, “getting your ass railed” never got their ass railed. Pounding, hammering, banging… And language matters, because when the only language you have available is abusive and one-directional, in terms of having things done to you, it creates a very weird view of how sex works.

"beat the pussy up"

"tear that ass up"

"smashed that shit"

Porn has created a fucked up mindset and you cannot tell me it hasn’t

It’s not okay when you see nothing but



There is no intimacy. There is no sensitivity

Just the vagina as a masturbation toy for the penis to use.

Not two or more human beings coming together and actually ENJOYING themselves.

I just think there’s this certain assumption that when a man tells the truth, it’s the truth. And as a woman when I go to tell the truth, I have to negotiate the way I’m perceived. Like, there’s always the suspicion around a women’s truth, the idea that you’re exaggerating.

this was one of the few things that was said in the documentary that I related to /// I feel this way damn near every time I speak to a male
