Find What You Love & Let It Kill You

I've been MIA from the internet for a last few days as my world is currently on fire. Though I don't feel as awful as I did back in November where I just wanted to crawl into a hole and die. This time something tells me it will be okay. Maybe it's also because for the first time in a long, long time (I'm talking years) I feel like I'm in a normal and healthy relationship.

I came across this quote the other day. With all the Steubenville rape talk lately I thought I'd share:

 “Essentially, the idea of a “slut” is a myth told to women to keep them in their place. Just as Santa will not actually bring you coal on Christmas if you break a few of the house rules, you will not actually turn into an intrinsically tainted, unpalatable creature if you break one of society’s rules and have sex with one too many men. The word “slut” isn’t a criticism for having too much sex necessarily, but for being a woman: a real, living, breathing woman with quirks, foibles, normal sexual feelings, and personality; and failing to live up to the societal ideal for a woman: the passive, pliable, perpetually innocent, and sexually available Barbie doll.”
