whoneedsfeminism:

I need feminism because: when I reported a male teacher for sexual assault…
I was told by students who were not there at the time it happened that “You shouldn’t have reported him.”
I had to miss my classes whilst the investigation was going on. He continued to teach as usual.
He suffered little to no consequences, whilst I was seen as a lying bitch.
The panel who dealt with it were all males aged 40-60.
This teacher is known by almost all students to be a pervert.
AND I STILL HAVE HIM AS A TEACHER, ONE YEAR ON, DESPITE THERE BEIN MANY OTHER TEACHERS IN HIS SUBJECT. MY TIMETABLE “CANNOT” BE CHANGED.

I’ve never met a girl who thinks like you.”

"A lot of people tell me that," she said, digging at a cuticle. "But it’s the only way I know how to think. Seriously. I’m just telling you what I believe. It’s never crossed my mind that my way of thinking is different from other people’s. I’m not trying to be different. But when I speak out honestly, everybody thinks I’m kidding or playacting. When that happens, I feel like everything is such a pain.

Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood (via girlinlondon)

What a terrible thing it is to wound someone you really care for and to do it so unconsciously.

Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood (via girlinlondon)

Nobody likes being alone that much. I don’t go out of my way to make friends, that’s all. It just leads to disappointment.

Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood (via observando)

One heart is not connected to another through harmony alone. They are, instead, linked deeply through their wounds. Pain linked to pain, fragility to fragility.

Haruki Murakami, Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage (via arrythmic)

Don’t you think it would be wonderful to get rid of everything and everybody and just go someplace where you don’t know a soul? Sometimes I feel like doing that. I really really want to do it sometimes.

Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood (via girlinlondon)

What [feminism] means to me is that you don’t let your gender define who you are— you can be who you want to be, whether you’re a man, a woman, a boy, a girl, whatever… I’m a believer that if everyone has a fair chance to be what they want to be and do what they want to do, it’s better for everyone. It benefits society as a whole.

If The Beatles were the original rock’n’roll four-piece, then Ringo was the original rock’n’roll drummer. This was the template for the next 40 years of music. They were certainly the foundation for what I do and Ringo seemed to be the foundation of The Beatles. I always thought he had a great style. He had a wonderful swing and was a showman. A lot of drummers aren’t considered showmen, but he definitely turned it on. His swing and backbeat carry so many of The Beatles’ songs. Back then, the recording depended on the feel of the song. There was no digital manipulation of drum tracks, so it was up to the drummer to dictate that feel. And Ringo had his own sound. Pull all the instruments out and you’d still know it was a Beatles song. And that’s the sound of a signature drummer. It’s the kind of thing drummers strive for all their career, but not all of them make it.Dave Grohl

I went over to the bed and put my arms around her. She kissed me, and while she kissed me I could feel she was thinking of something else. She was trembling in my arms. She felt very small.
