audreydejarnette You can do this. You are so smart and wonderful. I know that school is really difficult right now, but you have got this. Take a really long shower if you need to. Take time to yourself even if it puts you a little behind. School is important, but it is not the end of the world if you don’t do well on a test. I will be praying for you, sweet girl. You will make it through this.

I love you too. Thankyou.

Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.

(Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us).

I wish my dad loved me the way yours loves you... I don't know what you're going through. But I do know that God is in front of you with open arms, to take your tears, frustrations, fears, and stresses. Give it to Him. You are His princess. He will bring you peace & sort things out for you. :) lots of love & prayers your way, sis. xxxx

i am very blessed by him coming into both mine and my mother’s lives. he has really been trying lately, and i appreciate his small acts of love more than he probably knows. watch for them from your own father. but even if he can never give you exactly what you need, remember that our Heavenly Papa is sufficient for you in every way and that He cares for you in the ways you are so sweetly reminding me that He cares for me, as well. thankyou for reminding me. all my love and good vibes.

i told my teacher i like plants more than people and he fist pumped me.
