ONE MORE TIME FOR THOSE IN THE BACK.
I received a heartbreaking message of a sweet, young babe today who said she didn’t feel as though anyone took her depression seriously because of her appearance and that she seems too ‘chipper’ but inside she wants to die.
WELL THIS ONE IS FOR YOU BABY G.
❌Don’t you dare judge someone’s mental well-being on how they look.
❌Don’t tell someone they don’t look depressed.
❌ Don’t ever deter someone from getting help because you feel they don’t look depressed enough.
It’s the simplest of the most simple concepts yet our ignorance is still not letting that sink in... we are losing lives... beautiful, important and fucking radiant lives because we’re not getting past this stigma.
Mental health doesn’t have a look. Stop it.
So many women refused to keep quiet about injustice this year, even when the price was high. From the Women's March in January to this moment, as #MeToo accusations result in a flurry of high-profile firings and resignations, the question that has hung over 2017 feels like it's coming to a head: Will women's courage matter?

Feminism is one of the most important acts of self care I have learned to practice every day with myself and others. Knowing and understanding my mind and Body are allowed to take up space, to be #nourished and tended to for my own well being is necessary for survival. My purpose is not to be an object of beauty to decorate the capitalistic landscape, but to be a part of growing a supportive #community to create positive change and #peace for all.

With a sustained rise in lookups throughout 2017 and a number of event-driven spikes, ‘feminism’ is our #WordOfTheYear .

"Quando uma mulher revida, de repente, o linguarudo não sabe como reagir
Então ele faz o que todo garotinho faria
Inventa alguns ou dois falsos rumores
difamando nomes por popularidade
É triste que só consiga fama através de polêmicas"
“I feel like feminism is forgetting to also lean on the men challenging what masculinity means,” -Camila Falquez, photographer @camilafalquez
Everything about this 🔥🔥🔥
Sometimes you'll be too much woman.
Too much of something
That makes a man feel like less of a man
Which will start to make you feel like you have to be less of a woman.
The biggest mistake you can make
Is removing jewels from your crown
To make it easier for a man to carry.
When this happens, I need you to understand
You do not need a smaller crown -
You need a man with bigger hands."
