Intimacy: The Whys, Hows, How-Nots, and So-Nots

A great Scarleteen article on intimacy by Heather Corinna with a few cute example illustrations! More illustrations in the article :)

"There are probably at least 9,725,460,324 potential ways to experience intimacy. Here are 25: 

  • Having genital sex with someone
  • Telling someone a secret or fantasy
  • Helping someone who is hurt
  • Having a long open talk about something emotionally difficult where you feel vulnerable
  • Kissing
  • Showing someone part of your body you don’t feel confident about
  • Taking care of someone who is sick
  • Living with roommates
  • Sharing a table with someone
  • Singing or dancing together
  • Letting someone see you at your rattiest
  • Telling someone big news first, before you tell anyone else
  • Sharing something you’re worried might be weird
  • Sharing a password
  • Letting someone borrow or take care of something or someone important to you
  • Asking for help!
  • Showing someone something new you’ve been learning or doing when you aren’t very good at it yet”

This is really true and really important. Intimacy means something different (although maybe related) to everyone!

IT JUST GOT REAL

What good news for the world.

Remember when this made the news weeks ago and US news outlets didn’t find it worth reporting?

BLESS THIS

This should have like, 1,000% more notes.

This is amazing.

Are you telling me that those Ryan Gosling cupcakes have 45,000 notes and this post hasn’t even reached 5,000?

Relevant.

And it was on this day that this appeared on my dash, and I said “Damn, finally some good news!” and reblogged the hell out of it.

" Telling [people of color] they’re obsessed with racism is like telling a drowning person they’re obsessed with swimming. "

-

Hari Kondabolu (via misandry-mermaid)

This is CRITICAL. Remember, the oppressors do NOT want to stop oppressing; they simply want you to endure it but be quiet about it AND not acknowledge how it impacts almost every choice you can make in life and how you navigate life itself. This is the core of bootstrap theory, a facet of the lie of meritocracy, as to why it is a disgusting and flawed concept.

This quote is EVERYTHING.

Exactly.

I’m not obsessed with racism. You’re complacent in white supremacy.
