"I don't get suprised by you Josie, because I expect to be suprised by you."
I'd like to live a full, happy and loved life, and at the moment I think I'm already half way there. I like adventures, and the best memories are when they aren't planned. My best friends mean the world to me, without them, Jesus and my family, I don't think I could've got through the things I have been through. My emotions influence my decisions, so I make sure the people that effect my emotions are people who care. I want to be loved and I want to be complete.

Way too powerful an image here…
This speaks volume about the standards expected in society on how one should look. And how young we begin to be bombarded with these standards…

I can’t remember the amount of times of cried while grabbing at my fat and wishing I could cut it off. It started when I was eight. This picture and the meaning behind it is so, so important.

Real life vs Societal expectations

Wow..

Yeah, news flash people, boobs generally only look “perky” while in a bra. A few are super lucky and have naturally perky boobs, most don’t. And this is because, SURPRISE, boobs are intended to feed babies and it’s hard for a baby being cradled in mum’s arm to reach a nipple that’s on the other side of the boob from where its mouth is.Think of a soda fountain machine. The spouts are all pointing down, right? So you can put soda in a cup being held under the spout? If the spout was sticking straight out, it would be really hard to get a soda out of it.Babies need to be able to reach a nipple easily so they can eat. Ergo, nipples are usually lower and angled more downward on a naturally hanging boob, both so it’s easier for a baby to reach and so gravity can do its part in pulling milk toward the nipple.So there you go, outright ANATOMICAL proof that boobs are not there for the benefit of men.

Thank you for that. I never realized. Thanks.

As a society, we’ve gotten so screwed up in objectifying women’s bodies that we have completely forgotten about biology.
