I’m not part of the stars, or the sun, or the sea,
I’m more like that late night re-run you see on t.v,

and I’m not beautiful or wonderful or fair,
I’m that piece of dust in the light that is always there,

and I may not be brilliant or different or new,
and I won’t be the only person to ever say this to you,

but I’m kind and I’m thoughtful and just,
and I may not love me but I’m in love with the idea of us.

In school,
they taught me how to read and write.
They taught me how to add numbers
and memorize facts.
They taught me about history
and the origins of my culture.
They taught me biology and chemistry
and the anatomy of the human race.
I learned that there are 206 bones
in my body.
206 bones in a body
that I was never taught how to protect.

No teacher ever told me
to be wary of men
who offered to buy me things,
like alcoholic beverages.
No teacher ever warned me
about handsome, blue-eyed boys
who would tell me not to be scared
when I was terrified.
No teacher ever taught me
that I should not accept a man’s
wandering eyes or hands.
No teacher ever taught a boy
that he should not be that man.
No teacher ever stressed
the importance of a woman’s spoken word:
“No.”

Instead,
my teachers sent me
to the principal’s office
for wearing a racer back tank top.
Instead,
my school’s administrators
banned girls from wearing tight pants
because they were “too distracting.”
Instead,
girls had to stop wearing shorts
because the boys were never
told to control themselves.
Instead,
I had to dress demurely and
conservatively so as to not affect
the learning environment of the males.
Instead,
I was punished for simply being
a female.

206 bones in my body,
and I was never taught that a boy
could easily break any one of them
just to get what he wanted.

I guess that was never in my school curriculum.

A moment of silence to all the kids who can’t wait to become a teenager because they think it’s fun

Two hours of silence for all the teenagers who can’t wait to become adults because they think they’ll get to do whatever they want

a shot of vodka to all the 20 somethings who are coping with a lack of rent money by sitting around eating captain crunch in dinosaur PJs wishing they were actually a pre-teen again.

DID JOHN BARROWMAN JUST SLAPPED PRINCE HARRY’S ASS???

There is only one man who could get away with that and that man is John Barrowman.

Please note that Prince Harry also slapped John Barrowman’s ass. That is a mutual high five/ass slap combo there, folks. IJS.

I don’t know what on earth is happening here, but I LOVE EVERYONE IN THIS BAR.
