'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.’

this scared me and made me cry and i am almost embarrassed to post this but quite honestly i would rather fight for this rather than anything else.

men and womens value, and the indescribable importance of intimacy

Take Time To Realize
I’ve noticed that these days, we don’t appreciate the little things in life as much. These days, we don’t realize how wonderful life is. We tend to forget to notice the things that make us feel alive and good inside.
Wake up early in the morning 
Watch the sunrise or just stare out your window and notice how still and calm the world is when only you and the birds by your window are awake. The world seems a lot more beautiful early in the morning without all the people disturbing the peace and quiet.
Let it all out
It’s quite normal to be sad about extremely small and unimportant things. Scream into a pillow or just let all those tears you’ve been keeping inside roll down your cheeks for the first time in a while. After having done so, you’ll realize how small your problems are.
Do something for the first time
Whether its riding a ferris wheel or speaking up for what you believe in, doing things for the first time just makes you feel all nice and happy. It gives you a sense of accomplishment. (just make sure the things you try out aren’t bad…and/or illegal)
Appreciate the compliments
When people compliment you on your hair or your clothes or other small things like that, take time to really appreciate it. The person who complimented you might have had to gain a lot of courage just to say it, so make sure you thank them and maybe even compliment them back!
Sit somewhere and observe
Find a place to sit (maybe a park bench or on the sand by the beach) and observe the people around you. Watch how the kids laugh and how their parents smile at their happiness. Watch how couples act like they don’t see anyone else around them other than their lover. Watch those people who are by themselves and look at how they tend to stare up at the sky a lot. Realize that there are so many different types of people with different types of personalities, qualities, and ways of living.
I hope that one day, you’ll realize how wonderful and beautiful life on this world is.
