More Than Words: Tomboys R Us
THIS whenever some girl brags about being “one of the boys” or says something like “I’m not like other girls, I LOVE [stereotypically masculine thing].” (via giraffodill)

It’s important to talk about how vaccines don’t cause autism, but can we please also talk about how much people must hate autism if they’d rather expose their child to polio, measles and chickenpox than autism?
People want all the wrong kind of love.
They want a Gatsby and Daisy love connection, but don’t realize the synthetic infatuation of the nefarious spell.
They want a Romeo and Juliet whirlwind, but forget they haphazardly and half insanely lead each other to their demises.
They want a Bella and Edward undying commitment, but don’t see the crippling dependency of an unrealistic relationship.
People want to romanticize the unromantic, want to glorify the obsession. They want to believe in a green light or an eternal love, they don’t want mortal. They don’t want normal.
But they don’t understand, they can’t see, what’s special in the unspecial.
Love is the way his eyes crinkle when he laughs. Love is the way he opens the door with a goofy smile and raised eyebrows. Love is the way he bought you the wrong flowers on Valentine ’s Day. Love is the way he breaths in your exhale, just to make sure you’re alive. Love is the way he doesn’t have to be extraordinary to be perfect.
In a way, love is all the ways life is ordinary.
Because people want the wrong kind of love. They want to believe in fiction, and I fucking hate them for that. Because I believed in ordinary, I believed in you.
And we promised we would never be a sappy romance novel, and we never were. But somewhere along the line we started writing history. And now we are just words in some boring old textbook shoved in a dusty old library.
Because people want the wrong kind of love and I wanted everything we could never be.”
