"so do you have a boyfriend?"
I begin to sweat, fumbling. I’m trying to shove them back into my pockets but it’s too late. thousands upon thousands of pictures of godzilla spill from my hands and onto the floor, covered in kiss marks. there are so many.
YUIMETAL gif animations
I made a few gif animations from the Making of IDZ video for one of my favorite tumblr blogger. :) For Andrea. :)
"There’s a paradox in thinking that you’re better than other girls, when your whole reason for feeling that way is because you think your gender is so inherently inferior that you want to dis-identify with being a girl altogether."
More Than Words: Tomboys R Us
THIS whenever some girl brags about being “one of the boys” or says something like “I’m not like other girls, I LOVE [stereotypically masculine thing].”
I want to add that I TOTALLY understand if you’ve done this and you don’t need to feel stupid for it. In my experience, many (most?) people who can sense an imbalance between genders start here. It seems to make sense when you’re first grappling with the idea that women are treated differently - girls get made fun of for X, and you don’t do X, so you’re not like other girls, the ones who are holding all girls back. A lot of people fall into the trap of thinking that because people have a problem with, for example, girls who like boy bands, that the thing that needs to change is girls liking boy bands and not people judging the value of girls based on whether they like boy bands.
I’m not saying it’s an okay thing to think, and once you realize you’re doing it you should do some work on yourself to get rid of the thinking that says there is a right way to be a girl. But you don’t need to beat yourself to a pulp over it, because internalized anything really is an easy trap to fall into.
