I felt really sad today so I took a bath in petals
Grimes (Claire Boucher)
1. Girls Shalt Not Have Sex.
(someone asked me what the guy word for ‘slut’ is
and I couldn’t find an answer.
it’s an old story: a rumour goes around that so-and-so
blew a boy in the disabled toilets.
the girl fakes a cough to get herself sent home
to escape the classroom-wide hiss of ‘slut’
while the boy she blew walks into the same class
and is greeted by an onslaught of high-fives)
2. Girls Shalt Love Boys.
(when I was ten, there was a movie trailer where two girls
leaned in for a kiss, and I felt sick for the rest of the day.
it took four years
along with faux-casual questions to friends
useless quizzes on the internet
entries in a diary that I later scribbled out
to admit, fine, okay, yes,
and another year after that to say it without mumbling)
3. Girls Shalt Not Be Bitches.
(it took over ten years of school for me to realize
my women teachers got called bitches
for doing things that my male teachers got called efficient for.
we were assigned to a group project in science class
and whenever my friend tried to tell the others to quiet down
so they could get on with the work,
she was jeered into silence
and she never found it fair that her boyfriend did
the same thing and the noise stopped.)
4. Girls Shalt Have A Vagina.
(she introduced herself with a deep voice and a gushing smile.
she had a pink dress and an adam’s apple
she had a necklace resting above her cleavage
she had escaped from an all-boys high school
and I didn’t understand until I learned later
gender is more than the two rigid boxes
that we are told to tick one of)
5. Girls Shalt Smile.
(he frowned when the subject was brought up
and he shrugged a lot as he explained
that we look better when we smile. Less hostile.
His shrugs stiffened when I asked him why we shouldn’t look hostile.
‘I dunno,’ he said, dropping to a mumble. ‘Girls aren’t s’posed to look hostile, I guess.’
The next time someone walked past me on the street
and told me to smile,
I gave him my sunniest grin
and a middle finger.)

"inner white girl"? you are literally a white girl
james franco went on a national morning talk show and admitted to trying to hook up with a 17 year old girl and the hosts laughed and thanked him for his honesty as if this were some embarrassing story at family dinner and not a potential felony what the hell
people on this site keep defending him with the whole “17 is considered legal in NY and 16 is legal in scotland where she’s from so its TECHNICALLY not a felony”
is you fucking serious, that grown ass man is 35 the question is why is he seeking out young teenage girls?? Young girls will think this disgusting behavior is ok because hes a celebrity and they like the “idea” of who they think he is. IT IS NOT OK. PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE MAKING EXCUSES FOR FRANCO JUST BECAUSE THEY THINK HES HOT. ITS NOT OK.
I’m going to say I’m proud of the hair
i laughed way too much
Scans from my drawing anthology: DISCOVERY OF WOW
(and also pictures that I’ve been uploading on instagram!)
In the past few months, debate surrounding the use of racial caricatures as pro sports mascots has reached a fever pitch. Just ask the Washington Redskins, who’ve endured significant backlash for both their refusal to change their name and their half-assed attempts to placate their critics.
But a few miles west, fans of the MLB’s Cleveland Indians are taking a stand. In a motion of solidarity, a small but growing number have been “de-Chiefing” their paraphernalia by removing the offensive “Chief Wahoo” mascot from caps and jerseys that bear its likeness.
what the hell’s a laker
