Although most boys figure out how to bring themselves to orgasm by age thirteen, half of girls do not have their first orgasms until their late teens, twenties, or beyond. Teenage girls widely agree that they get the message loud and clear that masturbation is something boys do, but girls do not, cannot, or should not. The cultural focus on intercourse tells young women to expect they will begin to experience sexual pleasure once they have sex with a man (whether or not they are even interested in sex with men). Nearly all teen boys, on the other hand, experience sexual pleasure long before they get their hands—or other body parts—into a partner’s pants. Despite the massive advances in women’s equality, young women’s sexuality is stuck in a surprising paradox. Young women are sold provocative clothes but are not taught where to find their own clitoris. Many girls give their boyfriends oral sex, but are too uncomfortable with their own bodies to allow the guys to return the favor. It is still a radical act to say that women need and deserve access to information about their own sexual pleasure—not just about the risks and negative consequences of sex.

people who are in their 20 or 30s complaining about ‘kids these days’ is super funny to me, like i saw someone complaining about how kids at some pool were playing marco polo but with ‘hashtag’ ‘yolo’ and if that’s not funny to you then what the hell sucked the joy out of your life
You’re loved. Your friends are proving it to you all the time in small, cool ways that are not hard for them. They’ve been where you’ve been. They would not offer these things if they didn’t want to do them. Stop looking for evidence that you’re unworthy of this, and stop questioning these acts of kindness. Maybe your little turd-heart doesn’t deserve this love. Tough shit. You’re loved anyway. Deal with it.

Favourite movie characters - Jerry/Daphne from Some Like It Hot (1959)
i think one of the things that keeps this movie so fresh over the years is that what could have just been a campy mocking sendup of queerness and genderqueerness is instead the ultimate sincere look at two guys discovering themselves through roleplay, and while tony curtis’s self-discovery comes through Sugar, jack lemmon’s comes through getting in touch with his inner girl and just LOVING THE SHIT OUT OF IT. in the end he’s not frustrated because he’s getting a proposal from another man, he’s frustrated that he *has to take off the wig*. That’s why this movie is amazing to me. Billy Wilder wrote a portrayal of genderqueer identity acted so well by Lemmon that it allows the audience to wholeheartedly *enjoy* the experience along with Jerry. His sexuality and gender identity are played for laughs, but in the end, the laugh isn’t on him at all. It’s on anyone who went through the movie laughing for the wrong reasons. It’s funny, it’s subversive, and it’s wonderful. <3
