Desireé Dallagiacomo - “Thighs” (WOWPS 2014)

"My thighs say: We don’t want your praise, man on the street corner… man in the parking garage… man in Walgreens while we’re buying tampons…"

Disappointed that you can’t make it to the Women of the World Poetry Slam Finals in Austin tonight? We can help! Our first video from the tournament!

"My Thighs say: What the fuck is a thigh gap?" love love love this and her! 

Dear Not A Fan

I woke up to an email telling me living in my body the way I do is “wrong and shameful” LMAO
Dear Not A Fan,
Your internalized shame is not my burden to bear.

XOXO
Me

There is no special love exclusively reserved for romantic partners. Genuine love is the foundation of our engagement with ourselves, with family, with friends, with partners, with everyone we choose to love. While we will necessarily behave differently depending on the nature of a relationship , or have varying degrees of commitment, the values that inform our behavior, when rooted in a love ethic, are always the same for any interaction.

bell hooks | All About Love 

I will never get tired of this quote. It is exceptional.

Regrets and mistakes, they’re memories made
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?”
