SIGNAL BOOST THIS NEWS! Seriously, how come this isn’t all over tumblr? Angelina Jolie presided over the largest ever global anti-rape summit. She is using her celebrity for good. She is addressing rape in wartime and in conflict zones, which is where it is perpetuated on the most massive scale and in which context always has been used as a weapon.

Feminists of tumblr should get behind this woman. Let’s stop the perpetual erasure and trivialization of women in the media through their sexualization and start looking at the work that they do. Her acts here are easily in danger of being eclipsed by her image in the tabloids which is more concerned with her relationship to Brad Pitt and the fact that she is a sex symbol than the important feminist work that she is performing RIGHT NOW. 

I am such a fan of this lady… and she does not deserve to be trivialized for being a woman, a sex symbol, and a celebrity. Here, she is working for social justice for women all over the world. She’s doing what’s right.

Ode to future 50-self.


Soft, but used skin
Tastes like peaches.
Tousled, peppered hair
Cotton t-shirts to wear.

Grey teeth, the most comfortableSheets. Late nights, much
Wine. Don’t let life
leave me high and dry.

To feel everything as deep
as I can. Suck it in and
remember when I
prick every finger on the cactus.

Never totally learn.
How bad it hurts. How good
it can feel.

How I never really
care when my pits stink. Please
don’t ever forget your tic-tacs.

Leonard Cohen - A Thousand Kisses Deep (by Russell Wright)

You came to me this morning
and you handled me like meat
You’d have to be a man to know
how good that feels, how sweet
My mirrored twin, my next of kin
I’d know you in my sleep
and who but you would take me in,
a thousand kisses deep.

I loved you when you opened

like a lily to the heat
you see I’m just another snowman
standing in the rain and sleet
who loved you with his frozen love, his second hand physique
with all he is, and all he was,
a thousand kisses deep.

I know you had to lie to me
I know you had to cheat
to pose all hot and high
behind the veils of shear deceit.
Our perfect porn aristocrat so elegant and cheap
I’m old but I’m still into that, 
a thousand kisses deep.

I’m good at love, I’m good at hate,
it’ s in between I freeze.
'Been working out, but its too late,
it’s been to late for years.
But you look good, you really do,
they’ll love you on the street.
If you were here I’d kneel for you,
a thousand kisses deep.

The autumn moved across your skin,
got something in my eye,
a light that doesn’t need to live,
and doesn’t need to die.
A riddle in the book of love, obscure and obsolete,
'till witnessed here in time and blood,
a thousand kisses deep.

And I’m still working with the wine,
still dancing cheek to cheek,
the band is playing Auld Lang Syne,
but the heart will not retreat.
I ran with Diz and I sang with Ray.
I never had their sweep,
but once or twice they let me play
a thousand kisses deep.

I loved you when you opened like a lily to the heat,
you see, I’m just another snowman
standing in the rain and sleet,
who loved you with his frozen love, his second hand physique,
with all he is, and all he was,
a thousand kisses deep.

But you don’t need to hear me now, and every word I speak,
it counts against me anyhow,
a thousand kisses deep.
