Friends Only... [Saturday

My journal is private. I may add you, chances are that I will add you, but you have to let me know how you found me. I tend to not write every day, sometimes I don't won't write for weeks...but when I do it gets long. Sometimes I complain, sometimes I'm happy, and sometimes I'm depressed. That's all of what makes me who I am, if you can handle constant topic change and random entries, add me. :] I also rarely comment, I do read.. I'm just terrible at commenting. Sorry in advance!

About a girl.

Because I'm bored and have too much free time.. [Thursday

[ mood | bored ]

Post: your favorite book and/or poem, a quote, and a picture you like.

Favorite book: Anthropology of an American girl AND The Time Traveler's wife.

Favorite poem: If you come as softly- Audre Lorde
If you come as softly
As wind within the trees
You may hear what I hear
See what sorrow sees.
If you come as lightly
As threading dew
I will take you gladly
Nor ask more of you.
You may sit beside me
Silent as a breath
Only those who stay dead
Shall remember death.
And if you come I will be silent
Nor speak harsh words to you.
I will not ask you why, now.
Or how, or what you do.
We shall sit here, softly
Beneath two different years
And the rich earth between us
Shall drink our tears.

Quote:Every night is the worst night of someone's life. It's easy to forget that.


Humor me, peeps!

Movie quotes [Wednesday

[ mood | sleepy ]

Guess the titles of the films the quotes are taken from.
If you get at least one answer correctly, you can post your own meme. Everyone do it; I'm bored.

1. I can't go all my life waiting to catch you between husbands.
2. It's a crystal. Nothing more. But if you turn it this way and look into it, it will show you your dreams.
3. Honestly, if you're not willing to sound stupid you don't deserve to be in love.
4. Too bad. You could've used the workout.
5. Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.
6. I'm impossible to forget, but I'm hard to remember.
7. She was laughing at me because her "au pair" said that my new nanny was a slutbag whore.
8. Who are you really, and what were you before? What did you do and what did you think, huh?
9. You can be anywhere where when your life begins. You meet the right person and anything is possible.
10. Guard your carnal treasure.

Real post sometime soon. :)

Time to air out your dirty laundry, clear those old skeletons out of the closet, and just get the load off of your chest. All comments made to this entry MUST BE ANONYMOUS, unless you just really want to incriminate yourself.

Post your deepest darkest secrets, flaws, confessions, etc. in the comments, anonymously - no trying to guess whose is whose, that's rude, and no getting all mean and catty about the confessions guys.

Comment as many times as you wish, with whatever you want, but please only with confessions, no flooding with pointless crap.

Nothing will be screened.

A lot has been said about how to prevent rape.
Women should learn self-defense. Women should lock themselves in their houses after dark. Women shouldn't have long hair and women shouldn't wear short skirts. Women shouldn't leave drinks unattended. Fuck, they shouldn't dare to get drunk at all.

instead of that bullshit, how about:

if a woman is drunk, don't rape her.
if a woman is walking alone at night, don't rape her.
if a women is drugged and unconscious, don't rape her.
if a woman is wearing a short skirt, don't rape her.
if a woman is jogging in a park at 5 am, don't rape her.
if a woman looks like your ex-girlfriend you're still hung up on, don't rape her.
if a woman is asleep in her bed, don't rape her.
if a woman is asleep in your bed, don't rape her.
if a woman is doing her laundry, don't rape her.
if a woman is in a coma, don't rape her.
if a woman changes her mind in the middle of or about a particular activity, don't rape her.
if a woman has repeatedly refused a certain activity, don't rape her.
if a woman is not yet a woman, but a child, don't rape her.
if your girlfriend or wife is not in the mood, don't rape her.
if your step-daughter is watching tv, don't rape her.
if you break into a house and find a woman there, don't rape her.
if your friend thinks it's okay to rape someone, tell him it's not, and that he's not your friend.

if your "friend" tells you he raped someone, report him to the police.
if your frat-brother or another guy at the party tells you there's an unconscious woman upstairs and it's your turn, don't rape her, call the police and tell the guy he's a rapist.

tell your sons, god-sons, nephews, grandsons, sons of friends it's not okay to rape someone.

don't tell your women friends how to be safe and avoid rape.
don't imply that she could have avoided it if she'd only done/not done x.
don't imply that it's in any way her fault.
don't let silence imply agreement when someone tells you he "got some" with the drunk girl.
don't perpetuate a culture that tells you that you have no control over or responsibility for your actions.

repost if you agree with this.

I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.

I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.

I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.

We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.

I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.

I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I
wish they could adopt me.

I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.

I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.

the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.

I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.

I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.

I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.

I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.

I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.

I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I didn’t have to always deal with society hating me.

I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.

I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.

repost this if you belive homophobia is wrong

Leave a comment and post anything that you want, and post it anonymously.
Post anything.
A story.
A secret.
A confession.
A fear.
A love-- anything.

Be sure to post anonymously and honestly.
Post twice if you'd like.
Then, put this in your LJ to see what your friends (and perhaps others who you don't even realize read your LJ) have to say.

C'mon, it's liberating. Get something off of your chest. You know you wanna...
