On Girls

150% over girl-on-girl hate. we grow up n for some reason develop an ingrained mindset to distrust other women and value the opinions and approval of men. i mean, i’m sure it has a lot to do with men dominating positions of power everywhere - of course we’re going to grow up believing they’re the smart ones, our heroes, the people we should seek for guidance.

This results in mad crazy deep self hate for a girl because you can only really identify with people who you’ve learned to distrust.  n who cares about them other bitches, fuck them other bitches!!

yeah, well, the most gratifying human connections i’ve made have been with other females (n i ain even gay). but the girl friends i’ve been lucky enough to make, who are also 100% down with respecting girl opinions/having totally supportive relationships with female friends, i’ve been able to connect with on such an intimate and sisterly level. 

and tbh it’s a lil sad it took a long time to realize this, and it’s 2014 so bless this new generation of kids growing up on the socially conscious internet. Now here are some dope girls to look up to CURRENTLY that weren’t around when i had acne:

it’s important for every girl to have at least one hero that is a curvy bad bitch who does whatever she wants. you should also do whatever you want (i mean like be yourself not burn ur homies house down damn). other winning attributes include: + succeeding in the male-dominated rap game + beina goon + wearing moschino in this pic

Remember when she was on TV in 2012 for tweeting? Remember when she STILL has >43,000 followers? any platform where you get to voice your opinions is cool, but Twitter’s great because you can retweet literally anyone. Amber speaks to feminism daily, but also uses her twitter to elevate the voices of other frustrated women, which is dope imo.

This is what she writes about her book coming out this November:

Science…For Her! is a science textbook written by a lady (me) for other ladies (you, the Spice Girls, etc.) It has been demonstrated repeatedly throughout history: female brains aren’t biologically constructed to understand scientific concepts, and tiny female hands aren’t constructed to turn most textbooks’ large, extra-heavy covers. I’ve written a fun, flirty,Cosmopolitan-like textbook that is tailored to you, ladies. And men, don’t be scared away! You’ll enjoy it too, especially if you’re dumb or gay!!”
