Most people think happiness is about gaining something, but it’s not. It’s all about getting rid of the darkness you accumulate.”
Alright, here’s something funny. These boys in my hall went outside in their undies to take some photos in the snow. Funny, right? They’re trying to get attention and it’s hilarious. Us ladies choose to do the same, we are wearing more clothing, and are doing the exact same poses. We are wearing as much clothing as is acceptable at the pool or the beach, at the gym, etc.
There is a serious double standard here— us girls have gotten responses like:
"What’s the point of being half naked?"
"*ahem* sluts *ahem*"
"What’s wrong with you females?"
Or worse, what my mother said. Her initial shock was apparently because she thought I was in my underwear, but when I told her I was in a swimsuit, she was suddenly happy I was having fun in college.
The idea here is that we are doing the same thing. When arguing this point with one of my hallmates, he said “But men’s bodies aren’t built the same, you don’t see girls getting pumped up over a topless guy, but how many guys do you think are gonna get all crazy over a topless girl?” Seriously? Really? Women don’t need to dress in order to avoid a reaction from men. You’re mad because you can’t control yourself? Men can pose in their undies in the snow without an issue because women aren’t going to go wild over it? Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours.
The double standards are killin’ me.
"Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours." Is literally one of the best quotes I’ve ever heard. Thank you.
We were doing an Olympics at my university and teams were either all girls or all guys.
For the event I participated in, we have to unfreeze a frozen shirt (by any means possible) and then put it on and run to the finish line.
Any ways, the guys started taking their shirts off and wrapped the frozen shirts in theirs, and it was working
So I took my shirt, I was wearing a sports bra so there wasn’t any cleavage and a hell of a lot more coverage than a bikini top, and I got yelled at by the refs to put my shirt back on because it was inappropriate
The guys won
i cannot believe how much the double standard bothers me. i’m afraid to walk around in a sports bra, but it’s ok for my man to walk around completely shirtless….dafuq?

Man, i never thought about that.
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
