A feminist group based in Guangzhou, China staged an online protest against the sexual exploitation of women in the workplace, revealing a photograph with a message boldly written in red on a whiteboard behind them: “My vagina does not come free with my labor.” More words were written on the women’s thighs, reiterating: “Not freebies.” 
The campaign was in response to a recent fatal rape case involving a 20-year-old woman at a state-owned company who was asked by her boss to a dinner. She was sexually assaulted by her boss’s friend and died as a result of her injuries.“Don’t ask your staff to provide part-time escort services. Women should only be asked to provide knowledge or technical skills in the workplace, but not other things,” says Ye Haiyan, an advocate of women’s and children’s rights.

What is a poet? An unhappy man who hides deep anguish in his heart, but whose lips are so formed that when the sigh and cry pass through them, it sounds like lovely music. And people flock around the poet and say: ‘Sing again soon’ - that is, ‘May new sufferings torment your soul but your lips be fashioned as before, for the cry would only frighten us, but the music, that is blissful. Søren Kierkegaard (via kushandwizdom) 1,660 notes

“…the Real Self is dangerous: dangerous for the established church, dangerous for the state, dangerous for the crowd, dangerous for tradition, because once a man knows his real self, he becomes an individual.” 
—Osho
Inside my bones, are excerpts from books that taught me what living and dying really means. Maybe that’s why my bones are too brittle. There’s just too much words. 'Jar of Confessions' - books (via mystrangesilhouettes)

Young men need to be socialized in such a way that rape is as unthinkable to them as cannibalism. Mary Pipher, Reviving Ophelia (via ohdreaming)

Do not fall for a dreamer.
Do not let the girl with stars in her eyes draw you in.
Do not listen when she whispers stories into your ears.

She lives in the clouds.
She does not know what gravity feels like.
Do not try to pull her down to earth.

To her, everything is a possible wish come true.
You blow out birthday candles.
You are not one yourself.
Do not stargaze with her.

She will never learn that she must overcome her own obstacles.
Do not move them aside to make her path easier.
Hold her hand as she stumbles but do not pick her up when she falls.

One day, reality will come knocking on her door.
Do not answer for her.
Let her cry on your shoulder.
Do not lean in for a kiss,
Even when she leans in first.

Do not fall for a dreamer.
She will love you like a fairy tale.
When she wakes up, she will not know you.
Some things are better left alone.
