"This is going to sound so hokey, but I feel like any problem in the world in my opinion, is probably rooted in a lack of compassion. You can disagree; we don’t have to think the same, but just a sense of compassion for other people. It’s the gas, the fuel behind conflict resolve, and a lot of times when I see it, my personal opinion in politics, foreign affairs, is just this general lack of compassion for other people’s struggles, other people’s opinions. So, if I could somehow infuse that, that would be the power." - Chris Evans on a superpower and how he would use it
People are allowed to be repulsed by sex.
People are allowed to be uncomfortable with nudity.
People are allowed to be uncomfortable with genitalia, their own or others.
There are so many reasons why people may feels this way, from dysphoria to being asexual to coping with sexual assault to just straight up that’s how they feel.
And that’s ok.
I have a few copies of “Playboy” from the 1970s stashed away somewhere. One of them has a letter where a guy writes in saying, “I met this really gorgeous, sweet woman, and we were planning to get married, but she sat me down yesterday and told me that she had a sex change before she met me. Mr. Hefner, should I marry someone who used to be a man?” and the response was, “So she had a sex change, big whoop. Would you be asking this question if she’d made any other change in her life before she met you? You love the woman she is now, and that’s all that should matter. If you want kids you can adopt or something.”
I feel so conflicted right now
That awkward moment when Hugh Hefner is more trans-positive than most feminists of the same era.
it’s literally canon that steve was jogging around the national mall for a few weeks and kept seeing this super cute runner all the time and then cap 2 opens on the day he finally got up his courage and picked out his tightest under armor shirt and just went for it
Are you fucking kidding me
People are capable of doing this and I can’t even drink from a cup without spilling some on my boobs
