Coercive sex can have many faces. It can come from a seemingly positive place, like when someone says, “I really think you should have sex with me because I love you.” It can also come from an obviously negative place through instances of blackmail. Neither is okay. We need to teach youth that it isn’t okay to pressure others into sex and that it is okay to say “no” to sex even if it hurts someone’s feelings.

Man, you know every generation thinks they had it great, and I’m not gonna pretend we didn’t have terrible things (I mean, look at any yearbook photo) and we didn’t have awesome things (all I have to say is “Zoom, zoom, zoom”), but something we most definitely had, was representation. We were major characters on shows and in movies, not regulated to an entertainment ghetto or completely ignored. Growing up, you could see yourself on “Ghostwriter,” “All That,” and “California Dreams.” We were saving the world from aliens, dancing in Mickey Mouse ears, telling horror stories around campfires, you name it!
So this image I commissioned from the always fantastic autumn-sacura, in tribute not just to the phenomenal actors pictured here (the late Thuy Trang, the charming Mario Lopez, the vocal bible Brandy Norwood, and the guy-who-probably-starred-in-something-you-love Mr. Dante Basco), nor the army of unsung performers who showed up on our screens repping us, our cousins, our friends, our crushes. This image is a tribute to US, for being varied, for being awesome, for representing OURSELVES just by leaving our house in the morning, proud of our skin, our background, our hair, and the things that make us US.
Just a reminder…#REPRESENTATIONMATTERS because the world needs to see all of the beauty we bring. So if you are a creator, remember how if felt when you saw someone had hair like you, lips like you, a story like you, and pass that on to someone else. Bring that beauty to those who will read your words, watch your vision, and step into your world. It makes the world we eventually step back into that much more vibrant.

I can’t be shaken anymore, by anyone. I’ve got to that point in my life that if you’re not a good person, and you can’t make me feel good with love and life, then fuck off, basically.

Never discredit your gut instinct. You’re not being paranoid. Your body can pick up vibrations, some better than others, and if something deep inside you says something’s not right about a person or situation, trust it and keep it pushing.

How to build self confidence?

Asked by Anonymous

bobbyism:

Confidence comes from knowing your worth. If you think you don’t have anything to offer the world, it’ll show. Get to know yourself, figure out what you’re about, what are your values, what do you stand for, what do you want out of life. Start by thinking good thoughts about yourself then act on those thoughts. It takes a lot of effort and hard work to be positive in world where negativity is encouraged. Dig deep, you can do it.
