Apparently it’s not socially acceptable for a man to invite another man out just for coffee or to go out for a meal, in case it’s perceived as a date. Like it’s fine if you wanna go to the pub and drink beer and have a chat but make it non-alcoholic and suddenly you’re not straight anymore? You can go to the cinema together but ONLY if it’s an action movie. You guys can’t even just go shopping with each other. Oh masculinity, so fragile, so strange.
I love that this in its simplicity is Gods encouragement to his people (I’ve been reading through Deuteronomy and have seen this quite a bit, but it’s a reoccurring theme in the Bible).
It’s funny because this encouragement from God is so against what our society would say to encourage someone….
i’ve really lost my faith in people and i don’t know if it’s because people are shit or because i expected too much to begin with
my life got about a thousand times better once i stopped censoring myself
and by censoring i don’t mean i suddenly embraced indiscriminate swearing; i mean i stopped trying to sugarcoat my past or my feelings; i stopped lying by omission; i stopped having guilty pleasures; i began unabashedly enjoying whatever i liked; i became very honest; i cut out of my life poisonous people and negative ideals, and i am so, so much happier for it
I think the most important thing is for all brown women, of all shades and hair textures, to feel represented and beautiful
