While I was in Oxford with Stacey and Claire, we went to loads of places. By far my favorite place we visited was The Story Museum. It’s an entire exhibit dedicated to one thing: If you could become your favorite childhood story character, who would you be? I had so much fun there, I wrote a post just about it!

Check out our day at The Story Museum!

masculinity is so funny to me bc men deprive themselves of the best things in life in order to achieve it like ….fuzzy socks, fun fruity pink drinks, spa days, lifetime movies,  expressing positive feelings in a healthy way, being a warm genuine person

"People are perfectly happy to see women as sex objects, but the actual biologic of our bodies is apparently gross and unmentionable."
- Our Bodies, Ourselves.

The best part? If the string weren’t visible, this photo could be used in any number of advertisements without complaint. The string is a reminder that we aren’t looking at a mannequin or sex doll. It also shows straight male viewers that the model is not currently sexually available to them, which is their greatest fear.Ugh.

People with vaginas can safely have sex while menstruating….. But I digress.

We can, and I do, but not while a tampon is occupying the space. I should have clarified further.

Most of my friends (both men and women and non-binary peeps) and I will talk pretty openly about disgusting things like taking huge dumps, but as soon as a vagina-owner mentions her period people shut down like ew no can you not that’s gross. really? reaallly? we were literally talking about shit a second ago and you can’t handle a little blood? What weird standards our culture insists on upholding.

"Life is short.

"

In the essay ‘A Winter Walk,’ which predated the more famous essay “Walking”
by a few years, Thoreau paid particular attention to the astonishing array of whites

from fog to snow to frost to the crystals growing outward on threads of light. The
fact that white is separately known. That it is its own wildness, entirely exterior,

like all weather you notice is a version of an open room coming through
the wind in prisms. White holds light in a suspended state, unleashing it later

across a field of snow or a sheet of water at just the right angle to make the surface
a solid, and on we go walking. Goethe’s Theory of Colors depicted each one

as an intense zone of human activity overflowing its object into feeling there is
a forest through which something white is flying through a wash of white, which is

the presence of all colors until red, for instance, is needed for a bird or green
for a world.

"I’m the one who’s been asking you—
it hurts to ask—Who are you?
I am orphaned
each time the sun goes down.
I can feel cast out from everything
and even churches can look like prisons.

That’s when I want you—
you knower of my emptiness,
you unspeaking partner to my sorrow—"
Rainer Maria Rilke, from “Ich bin derselbe noch, der kniete (I’m still the one who knelt before you),” from Rilke’s Book of Hours: Love Poems to God, tran. Anita Barrows and Joanna Macy (Riverhead Books, 1996)
