'Tell me what happens the first time you see a woman naked.'
'The first time you see a woman naked will not be like you imagined. There will be no love, no trust, no intimacy. You won’t even be in the same room as her.
You won’t get to smile as she undresses you and you undress her. You won’t get to calm her nerves with nerves of your own. You won’t get to kiss her, feeling her lips and the edge of her tongue. You won’t get to brush your fingers over the lace of her bra or count her ribs or feel her heartbeat.
The first time you see a woman naked you will be sitting in front of a computer screen watching someone play at intimacy and perform at sex. She will contort her body to please everyone in the room but her. You will watch this woman who is not a woman, pixelated and filtered and customized. She will come ready-made, like an order at a restaurant. The man on the screen will be bigger than you, rougher than you. He will teach you how to talk to her. He will teach you where to put your hands and he will teach you what you’re supposed to like. He will teach you to take what is yours.
You must unlearn this. You must unlearn this twisted sense of love. You must unlearn the definition of pleasure and intimacy you are being taught. Kill this idea of love, this idea of entitlement, this way of scarring one another.’– (via abomasnow)

Hylas i Nimfy, 1896 (fragment) John William Waterhouse
Just in case you needed any more proof of why feminism is still a fucking necessity.
Go watch her play the cover HERE and tell me she isn’t fucking talented as fuck… on another video of hers, where her cleavage isn’t in plain sight, comment after comment is “where are the boobs?!”
Reblogging to give her some proper publicity. She really is amazing at that guitar.
People wonder why I am a feminist. These guys are disgusting
This annoys me beyond belief.
Pretty sad when even the weaboo guy with Vash as his icon/screen name is in on it… I can understand poking fun at the girl for her tits, but all those comments ignoring her talent just because she has boobs is just sad. She’s playing a guitar, of course it’s going to press on them, but if she were looking for attention about her breasts instead of her guitar playing, she’d simply move the fucking guitar and make a porn video. shit.
