Heyyyyy guess what you're good enough


My friend and I were talking about ~*boys*~ yesterday, and in the middle of saying this, that, and the other, my friend said to me, “But remember — we don’t have to go into anything trying to convince anyone to like us.”

And shit. SHIT. Shit, you guys. She’s right. Show of hands: how many of us…

'Orphan Black' Clone Club: Kristian Bruun ranks the clones (Episode 206, 'To Hound Nature in Her Wanderings')


"It’s so funny that they had Patrick J. Adams do a cameo, because he was such a huge fan of the show in season 1 and he would tweet about it constantly. I would never have guessed that of all the clones he’d end up with, it would be Helena. I wouldn’t have guessed that he’d be a white trash dude with a “Jesse’s Towing” cap and then he’d hook up with Helena. That’s so funny. And she’s there trying every drink, telling people she’s on vacation, and she’s kicking ass in a bar fight."

The fact is, a 14-year-old girl may be capable of agreeing to sex with a 49-year-old man, but she doesn’t have the emotional and mental maturity to consent. I was 25 before I realized that every man I’d slept with as a teenager was a pedophile. It seemed to me that since I’d courted the attention, that I was fully culpable. What teenager believes she is not mentally or emotionally capable of full consent? I thought I was an adult, although when I look at the picture of myself from the time period above, I see a child.

I thought I was the exception for these men, the girl so precocious and advanced that it superseded social norms. I thought that I was “older than my chronological age.”

It never occurred to me as a young sexually active teen that the adult men I had relationships with may have been manipulating me, that they had designs and motives I couldn’t see from my limited child’s perspective.

Emily, XOJANE, "The Myth of the Teenage Temptress, or Why a Young Girl Can Not Consent to Sex with an Adult Man"

Everyone should read this article if they haven’t already. The anecdotes are upsetting and carry major TW (pedophilia, graphic depictions of sex), but the message is just so on point.

What I needed, and what she needed, were strong male role models in my life who knew how the fuck to say “No thanks” to a little girl’s come-ons. Because it doesn’t matter if a young girl is saying yes, it’s an adult man’s job to say no.

Super interesting, important. I remember not feeling like a real woman until grown men commented sexually on the way I looked. And I was 14/15. And that shit is fucked up.
