Anonymous asked: why are you a feminist???


because people are still asking that question

because women are payed less than men in approximately 99% of professions

because chris brown can still have a career after assaulting rihanna but miley cyrus takes her clothes off and there’s a huge scandal

because of this:


because currently it is estimated ten million more girls are out of education than boys (x)

because we’re expected to be mature but hairless like a child, in control but not bossy, sexy but not slutty and definitely not a prude, intelligent but not opinionated, independent but reliant on men, natural but look like the girl in the magazine etc etc

because being called a girl, a pussy or a bitch is an insult

because when i told my mum i refused to get anything less than a’s in my exams she told me it wasn’t ladylike to be so cocky

because my brother and 90% of my male friends think girls who wear revealing clothing are asking for rape

because every person who identifies as female should be allowed to choose if they want to get married, have kids, have a career, go to uni etc etc without expectations

because tampons and sanitary pads are stupidly expensive

because some people reading this will have flinched at the fact i just said ‘tampon’

because there are men out there whose job it is to make young girls feel like absolute shit about themselves just so they can sell the next best beauty product

because female masturbation isn’t considered normal whilst men can talk about their own penises for hours on end


because feminists are still seen as crazy lesbians who dont shave and some still feel like they have to defend themselves by claiming theyre not any of those things when in fact if i want to be a passionate lady who likes other ladies and cant be bothered to shave my legs every twenty minutes then thats my choice and if i want to be someone who wears make up and shaves and goes out partying then thats my choice and if i want to be a combination of the two or anything in between then thats. my. choice.

because i believe anyone who identifies as female is fucking badass and deserves the same rights as every privileged stuck up old white man sitting around and making laws about our bodies

because how can you not be

"Did you spend your time well while you were in college, did you make a lot of friends, how did you get along with your batch mates or shall we say, are you contented on what you’ve done the past 4 years that you have been in college?” those are the questions running through my mind and I presume that I am not the only one who have been thinking about things as we slowly turn our backs, facing the real world, thinking about the unknown possibilities and wondering where to go.
Our batch have been swinging through ups and downs,we made new friends, some got their first crush in school, others found love, some fell in love, got hurt and stood back up, we laughed until we cried, we cried until we laughed again, did the stupidest things in life, hurt ourselves by foolishness, but behind all that the most precious things that we found in college life is our friends. Friends that will go wherever you go, and fight beside you no matter what. Some may have gone, but new people arrived and also became part of the batch.
Graduating is a big achievement for each and one of us, but as the “Graduation Day” fast approaches, there is this feeling that kept me looking back at the 4 most memorable and precious years that I’ve spent in our beloved Alma mater, I became hooked to the past that I kept on reminiscing  our memories as a batch, like one of our exciting "PE MOMENTS" I’m sure all of you guys remembered that, our times with our Professor "SIR ACUÑA" then replaced by our keen observant “If you know what I mean? :))” Professor "SIR GASPAR" and also our "NSTP MOMENTS" with "MRS. MAGSINO" Ah! those days, especially our 3 day "NSTP IMMERSION CAMP" those are the days that we got the chance to know more about each other and knew about our role in our batch. We ever light up the lasting eternal flame of "COMRADERY AND SOLIDARITY". And of course how would I forget our first and last "3 DAY RETREAT" with our "FOREIGNOY" speakers, it is one of the most memorable moments that I’m sure that all of us treasured. #vanillabatina #prayerposition #daviddance #welovejesusyeswedo #welovejesushowaboutyou
In just a few days we are about to exit the premises of SAN SEBASTIAN COLLEGE-RECOLETOS CANLUBANG. The place where we discovered our blind spots, the place where we knew who we really are, the place where we found out our purpose in life or shall we say, "THE PLACE WHERE WE HAVE BEEN REBORN AND RECONSTRUCTED AS A STUDENT OR PERHAPS AS A PERSON IN REAL LIFE" and now is the time to leave our memories behind because a new world is waiting for us. Because my friends, even if it’s hard to say goodbye, there will always be an end to these happy moments we’ve spent, but don’t you worry because our hearts will always be there together in "BASTE". No more singing of the hymn every morning with fist pumps, no more feasibility studies, thesis, reports, quizzes, long tests, exams, no more team work, all that’s left is just memories that we can find somewhat "NOSTALGIC" when the time comes, there will even be the time that the picture above would be posted as #throwbackthursday #flashbackfriday so before we turn the last page, we should forget about the bad things that happened and just let time heal the wounds from the past and let happy memories overcome. We should learn how to "FORGIVE AND FORGET".

"Ba’t di salubungin ang puso ko at kunin? Ang diwang malaya huwag nawang magpabaya pa, Ikaw ang pag-ibig, pakinggan ang himig ko. Wala na sanang lalayo, mundong ito ay hihinto..”
