And your arm felt nice wrapped ‘round my shoulder,
and I had a feeling that I belonged.
OK JACK YES JACK DO IT JACK!

But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged.
Also I don’t see enough white feminists giving credit to Nicki Minaj beyond the interview of her doing her eyeliner. Did you guys forget that she recognized and IDed as cisgender, and recognized that vagina does not equal womanhood, when she called herself a “woman with vagina.” And that asshole talk show host laughed and said “as opposed to a women without one?” and she gave him a the meanest look and said “yes.”
"Why do you work out so much?"… When I try to explain that I’m training and not working out, a lot of people don’t understand what this means. You wouldn’t ask a marathoner why they do so much "cardio", a sprinter why they do so much "HIIT", or any competitive athlete why they "exercise" so much. Powerlifting is my sport and I train to increase my 1RM for the squat, bench press, and dead lift. I don’t do ab exercises. I don’t try to "tighten" or "tone" anything. I don’t work out specific body parts to make them look different. I just train to be a better athlete. The physique I have achieved through weight lifting is just a plus. I hope this explains my mindset!
Adulthood doesn’t mean you stop drinking juice pouches and eating fruit snacks. It means buying your own.
and mixing them with vodka
At 3 in the morning while marathoning your favorite show because nobody can tell you to go to bed.
And then regretting your decisions the next morning.
Because you have to work.
and make more money to buy fruit snacks and juice pouches.and vodka
If you’re protesting abortion, the Supreme Court says you can get right in women’s faces and scream at them on their way into the clinic. Because freedom of speech.
But if you try and protest the murder of a black man, you get tear gas fired at you.
