Of all the things I am not very good at, living in the real world is perhaps the most outstanding."
Anne Tyler, The Accidental Tourist (via wordsnquotes)

We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, ‘You can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise you will threaten the man.’ Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support. But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors – not for jobs or for accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.

Are you a friend with Eliza Taylor? Do you talk to her? I'm sorry if I'm bothering. If I am a really big fan and want to send a message to her can I send to you?


This is probably the fourth message similar to this I’ve gotten since her Ice Bucket Challenge video was posted so I’m going to try and keep this short and simple. No, I will not forward any messages and no I will not give you any other contact information. I’m sorry if that sounds rude or impatient. And for those asking for other things, any information that is not already public, you can assume is private and not mine to give out. You will find I value my friends’ safety and privacy lots and lots.
