I just saw this ad playing before a youtube video and I had to stop and watch the whole thing. Incredible.
Watch this. Now
I’m trans, yes, but let me tell you, this one got to me a lot. I was the “girl” who played on the football team, and thankfully it was a small town, no one really cared, everyone was super accepting, and I had a ball, and for me, it was one step towards realizing who I was inside. It was hugely helpful.

"a career" "financial security" "a sex life" "tuition for grad school" "alcohol" "a nap" "socks would be nice"

i’ve been told that my lipstick is TOO bold, my glasses TOO big, my colors TOO loud. i’m TOO smart, TOO chubby, TOO confident (haha what), TOO intimidating (what!)..

People starving when tons of unsold food is thrown away globally because people couldn’t afford to purchase the food, that’s violence.
People dying and going bankrupt to pay for their healthcare, that’s violence.
People being evicted from their homes when there are more houses than there are houseless people, that’s violence.Capitalism is violence.
And before anyone says it, no the system isn’t broken, it was built this way.
don’t mess with me im an honour roll student
I hate when guys complain about girls that have too small of boobs, but then they complain when girls wear push up bras, and then they complain when girls have fake boobs, and then they complain when girls have cleavage in their profile pics cause it’s “false advertising/slutty,” and then complain that girls with big boobs are “overrated.”
Like, I’m sorry that us “fake bitches/dumb sluts” are leaving your impossible standards unfulfilled.
Don’t anyone ever call me a “good girl”. It’s fucking patronizing and disgusting, got it?
