the past is a strange place
cops on bikes used to transport criminals like this
this guy worked as an alarm for waking people up
one wheel motorcycle
pin-boys who manually lined pins up
baby cage for families who wanted their kids to get enough sunlight
zoo-keeper showering a penguin
I just wanted to say I’m sorry.
I’m sorry for looking at you and finding things to hate when I should have been looking for things to love.
I’m sorry for comparing you to others, for making lists of things you didn’t have when I should have been grateful for the million and one things you’ve given me.
I’m sorry for forcing you to change, even though you didn’t want to, even though you didn’t need to, when I should have accepted you the way you are.
I’m sorry for hitting you, for cursing at you, for mistreating you and destroying you and telling you over and over and over that you’re too fat or too skinny or too ugly to love.
I’m sorry for the binging and purging, for the hours spent in the mirror picking out flaws, for the skipped meals and the rumbling stomach and the shooting pains in the bones.
All I can do is say that I’m going to do better, and say ‘I’m sorry.’
This is my apology – my apology to my own body.An Apology to My Body by John Paul Brammer (via johnpaulbrammer)
Amazingly, not The Onion:
“[W]e now have young men telling Bloomberg News that they basically view their female peers as rape bombs just waiting to explode and ruin their lives.”
I REPEAT: THIS IS NOT THE ONION
