I always feel like my parents don't really know me. I want them to know who I really am and know more about my personality but they think i like things i really don't and i just feel so misunderstood :(

I think a lot of teenagers have that problem and that problem starts when you stop communicating with your parents. I’m just going to assume a couple of things and you can tell me when I’m wrong but: when kids start growing up they often already feel misunderstood and they isolate themselves from their parents. Not many teenagers really talk to their parents these days and it’s kinda sad because they’re your parents and you can’t expect them to know you if you don’t talk to them, don’t do stuff with them, don’t let them in and sometimes even lie to them. I have a really good relationship with my mum. For example: I never lie to her, never have and never will. She knows everything about me from my weird tumblr obsessions to who I have sex with (meaning: just really personal things). My mum and I do stuff together. We go shopping like we’re best friends, we go to zoos together and we laugh and cry together. She’s my best friend simply because I have never pushed her away while growing up, I’ve never lied to her and when I find a new band or a new amazing serie she’s the first one I tell and I feel comfortable doing that because she’ll share the excitement with me and start listening to the same songs and she’ll ask me to watch new episodes with her. So my advice would simply be: open up and don’t be afraid of their reaction because I can assure you they’ll love everything about you.

I think being a parent is just as hard as being a daughter/son because no matter how many sisters or brothers you have: it’s the first and last time they’ll ever get to raise someone like you and you’re different than any other person alive so it’s not easy for them either. sorry for the long reply x

Let’s talk!

Wow. I’m sure you’ve all seen this girl’s fantastic tardis dress floating around here the last week or so. She hand painted the inside and everything, and she just looks plain great. But of course, I see it posted on facebook, and the slew of comments begin.

I don’t think it’s a mystery as to why I, as a bigger girl, spend the week before a convention crying because I’m so nervous about what people are going to say about me just because I want to dress up and have fun like everyone else. And there is something really, really fucking wrong with that.

This girl is as beautiful as she is clever! If we on Tumblr are only good for one thing, it’s turning situations like this around! Let’s signal boost this and get it back to her so she knows how much we love it! ALLONZ-Y

Some people need a reality check preferably with a baseball bat THIS IS FUCKING AWESOME and she is gorgeous.

So this girl puts tons of work into this dress, hand paints it, looks 50000000% adorable in it, and posts pictures of it because she is so very proud of her work.  As she should be.  And then these people come along and put her down - because “oh no!” How dare someone **NOT** have a tiny body frame?  What the heck is that crud anyway!?  

Usually I would just reblog without comment, but those comments were really unnecessary.  She looks stunning and those people are more envious of her awesomesaucitiness than anything else.

My favorite is the bottom one because of how clearly it exemplifies that women absolutely can not win in geek culture, because here she is “called to task” for not being sexy, but if she was wearing a sexy tardis dress you can be sure the comments would be instead about how she’s using it for attention and is obviously not a “real” geek.

This is the most impressive shit I have ever seen and her weight does not affect that in the fucking least YOU GO GIRL

OMG THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING AND MOST FORWARD-THINKING THING IN FASHION! YOU GO GIRL!
