hey fellow ppl who menstruate!
my gynecologist told me today that she doesn’t reccomend Always brand menstrual products, especially to people with sensitive skin, because they’ve been known to irritate the vulva. She said even if you don’t notice an irritation, it can still affect yr vaginal health/make you more prone to yeast infections etc.
please spread this so we can avoid hecking up our vulvas!
Thoughtful underwear with hidden powers. For every pair purchased you fund 7 pads to a girl in need.
OH SHIT YOU GUYS THIS COMPANY IS MAKING UNDERWEAR THAT IS STAIN RESISTANT, ANTIMICROBIAL, AND WILL ABSORB UP TO 6 TEASPOONS OF LIQUID BUT STILL LOOKS FUCKING SEXY
AND DID I MENTION THIS PART:
For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.
AND WHY IS THAT SUCH A BIG DEAL? HERE’S WHY:
After doing some research, Agrawal says she found that more than 100 million girls in the developing world were missing a week of school because of their periods, and using things such as leaves, old rags, or plastic bags in the place of sanitary pads.
THE SIZES RUN FROM XS TO XXL AND THE PRICES ARE NOT INSANE, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN THOSE 5 FOR $10 SALES AT TARGET BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO THROW THEM OUT BECAUSE YOU MISCALCULATED YOUR FLOW AND BLED ALL OVER THEM BEFORE YOU COULD GET TO A BATHROOM
I’M SORRY FOR SHOUTING I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS
LIKE HOLY FUCKBASKET IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME

Anonymous asked: hey okay so it may sound tacky but... i really want a boyfriend. Ive never had one before but there are really cute guys in my class and i feel myself longing for romance :) anyway the guys just dont ask girls out and i dont know why. Theyre probably shy but im kindof old fashioned but i dont want to ask a guy out... advice??? xx
i mean, i’d give you some if i had any but that was like pretty much my exact situation too from grade 6-senior year of college and i never quite figured it out
maybe…talk to them? be friendly and flirty-ish? i never did much of that and i think that maaaay have been a mistake on my part, looking back. like a pretty big flaw in my plan.
also think hard about whether there’s a specific guy that you really like and you want to date him, or whether you just like the idea of having a boyfriend [any boyfriend]. because tbh to me it sounds like the latter and it’s not that great to just think of a relationship as like, a status symbol that you have. because that’s not what they’re supposed to be about.
girls all go to the bathroom together because that’s where we rap battle
girls just wanna have
real pockets on our clothes, damn
Give Face for Real Cheap: The Best Beauty Products That Are Basically Under 10 Bucks (in the US)
I want you lovely people to be able to give major face, even on a budget. I know a lot of you are on a ramen noodle/well whiskey drink budget. I feel that. Makeup can be extraordinarily expensive, and although I’ve gotten some shit for making lists about drugstore makeup by people who believe drugstore makeup is crap (and if any makeup, drugstore or otherwise, irritates your face, return it immediately/set it on fire), I still stand by all this stuff.

Anonymous asked: I am in the 6th grade (first year of middle school) this guy attmitted he liked me and I told him I liked him ( but I don't ) what do I do
Ooh, that’s a bit awkward. Is there a particular reason you told him you like him even though you don’t, or was it just nerves?
Well anyway, the simplest way to deal with is to just straight-up tell him that you don’t actually LIKE like him that way. I know it seems impossible, but unfortunately, that’s just what you’re going to have to do.
Don’t lead him on by going on dates with him or acting cute and flirty.
Just own up to your mistake and then get on with your life.
plucking your eyebrows is legitimately very stressful because you pull out one wrong hair and it’s game over
So apparently in my sister’s class, there was a trans girl that had been on the cheerleading squad for a while. When she came out, the other girls on the squad made the agreement that whatever boy made fun of her would never get a date. And if you think that’s not the most metal girl alliance ever, you can sit down.
Wow, 500 notes
