So what if I don’t want to talk about something as passive as “privilege”, or rather, I don’t want to talk about “privilege” so passively anymore? What if instead I want to talk about how I see how we all actively engage in and participate in fucked up hierarchies in our society? What if I want to…

"In one experiment, mothers were asked to guess the steepness of a carpeted slope that their 11-month olds would be able to crawl. Then the children actually crawled the slope, and the difference between actual and mother-predicted angles was noted.

The results showed that both boys and girls were able to crawl the same degree of incline. However, the predictions of the mothers were correct within one degree for the boys and underestimated their daughter’s ability by nine degrees.

What this shows is that the presumption that boys are more physical causes parents to encourage their boys more in physical activities while cautioning their girls. This further translates into providing more opportunities for boys to be physical and fewer for girls. The result?

Boys actually do develop stronger physical skills than girls. But not because of anything innate or biological, but rather because of the gender roles that the parents subconsciously projected onto their babies."

"If your partner is consenting, you will see them meeting you halfway on stuff, responding to your touch, touching you back, making approving noises, positioning their body helpfully, making occasional eye contact, smiling, giggling, kissing you, smelling your skin.

If your partner pulls away, flinches, draws back, goes still, goes limp, freezes, is silent, looks unhappy, starts holding their breath, goes from meeting you halfway to merely allowing your touch: stop and check in with words. Maybe they’re ticklish? Maybe they want to stop."

This is good to remember especially for people who can’t communicate consent verbally all the time.

LOOK:  M O N D A Y ~ F U N D A Y

This look was inspired by none other than beautiful Mother nature herself! The vibrancy of the leaves intertwined with complements of a light cocoa corduroy blazer from the local thrift store, a navy blue, kelly green polka dot oxford shirt from Old Navy, some Levi’s, and my grandfather time piece came together quite nice on this frigid Kansas afternoon!

I am not typically a big shopper however, I am a huge fan of Ebay, Old Navy and thrift stores…..90% of my closet is a pure example of these and I absolutely love it!
