Hey I know England isn’t well known for it’s landscapes but I think we need a little credit over here I mean look at some of these beautiful places such as
The lake District, Cumbria
Hope Valley, the Peak District
THE WHITE CLIFFS OF DOVER
Flippin’ Dartmoor, Devon
I’M SORRY BUT
IF YOU THINK WE’RE BORING

YOU HAVEN’T SEEN
ALL OF US YET

If you are a man and you learn about the thousands of years of oppression against women which has culminated in truly hazardous social conditions for them in the present day, and your first reaction is “men have problems too”, then I ask you to take a moment to truly reflect on your position, and why you feel the need to make women’s struggle about you.
Invest in yourself. You can afford it. Trust me.
Someone, one day in around 5750 BCE in the Neolithic settlement of Çatalhöyük, selected a piece of clay to sculpt this surprisingly small beauty. I had only ever seen her in photographs, and had imagined her much bigger, but she was far more impressive in person than in any photograph I’ve studied. Though her figure is simplified and abstracted, the level of detail in her folds of flesh is astounding. There are carefully rendered creases and dimples all around her body, and the sense of power in her posture still radiates today.
There is no shortage of goddess or female figurines that have been found in Central and Eastern Anatolia.
It’s not my responsibility to be beautiful. I’m not alive for that purpose. My existence is not about how desirable you find me.
