When we live in a world where you can access free content of naked consenting women in less than 5 seconds, why are people still invading the privacy of non-consenting women for nudes?
Hint: It has something to do with people feeling entitled to making any woman their personal porn, even if it violates or humiliates her in the process.
I AM SO PROUD OF YOU HARRY

[on diversity in media] I think its social responsibility. I think it’s our responsibility to stand up and say what we want. It think if you look at television in the past two years, it’s becoming the decade of the female. Like, all these new shows with female leads. Even if you look at television, as well as cable, as well as films, there’s been a resurgence, as far as the leading woman in Hollywood, which is great. And I think we’re also at the point now…you know, it’s interesting…x
me at a straight boy’s house
Hello Darling Nonny,
First of all, toss your age out the window. There is absolutely nothing wrong with you, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with being unkissed at any age. And there is definitely nothing wrong with not having had a boyfriend. I used to be in the same boat, I swear. It took me a really long time to realize that there was nothing wrong with me or my sexual/romantic timeline. I’m not going to give you the “there’s a perfect guy out there waiting for you” spiel because that literally doesn’t matter. What does matter is your comfort level, 100%. Take your time! It’s going to sound weird, but I’m a huge advocate of practicing. Practicing kissing, practicing flirting, practicing interaction with guys in general until you feel like you can handle any social curveball thrown your way (within reason). I didn’t get my first kiss til I was 17, and I didn’t get good at kissing until I was about 22 (possibly; I haven’t really gotten verbal feedback, but I’ve had repeat partners, so I take that for what it’s worth). And I am still working on feeling comfortable at just talking with boys.
You know that post about the “fake dating” trope in fanfiction? and how after you’ve read one of them, you’ve read them all, but you still keep coming back, even though you know every plot twist and turn? That’s what talking to guys your age is gonna be like. They all read from the same stupid handbook and very few of them have the brains to switch it up, if I’m being perfectly honest. The more you talk to them, the more you’ll be able to see what’s coming, and you’ll have more time to figure out how you want to proceed. I’m at the point now where there was a 27 year old guy at work who I would hang out with, and he’s old enough to be subtler when he’s making a move, but I could still see what he was doing, I knew how to shut him down, and most importantly, I felt comfortable doing so. That’s probably the number one thing I want to emphasize. I would advise to learn to be friends with guys first. That sounds ridiculous and very after school special, but I speak from experience. The first guy I met at college orientation should have been a good friend, but I got my first collegiate taste of male attention, ran with it, and it ended with a horrifically embarrassing incident involving the all girls dorm and a public fire drill, and we never spoke to each other again.
The upside to taking your time and being friends with guys at your age, is that you not only learn more about them, you learn more about yourself, I promise. Your tastes will change! You’ll figure out what you’re actually attracted to vs what you’ve convinced yourself is attractive, and more importantly, you’ll figure out what’s healthy for you. By that I mean, in highschool I wanted the moody wannabe singer songwriter artistic type, and by college I wanted the intellectual sarcastic dick type. By the time I graduated college, I realized yeah I was attracted to the intellectual sarcastic dick type, but that type is not actually compatible with me as a person. It leads to a giant pile of toxic bullshit on both sides. I’m 23, and I may not know what I want or what’s good for me, but I know what’s not good for me. The more you fall on your face romantically/sexually, the more you’ll realize that this is crucial.
Ignore couples. They either act like one entity or they act like two people. Treat them accordingly, and don’t ever take any bullshit they might throw your way. Feelin like a third wheel? Don’t. You are a glorious wheel of cheese, whether you’re flyin solo or hangin with your compadres. Feelin weird about your lack of sexual/romantic experience? Don’t. There are a metric fuck ton of kick-ass, fine-ass ladies such as yourself who are out there and have no experience. I have friends my age, who have got their lives together and just haven’t found anyone they feel like smoochin. You are not alone bb. And dump any guy on his ass who makes you feel bad about lack of experience. I’ve got some bad news bears in the sense that boys aren’t good at anything for about the first 30 years of life. Yeah you might be a bad kisser now, but do you taste like doritos and cheap beer? NO? THEN YOU’RE ALREADY AHEAD OF THE GAME BABYGIRL!!
The number one place to grow your social chops is gonna be the classroom. Don’t be afraid to talk to the people around you. They feel just as awkward as you do. Unless you’ve accidentally sat in the middle of a clique. Do not sit down in the middle of a clique. And also, don’t worry about embarrassing yourself. That’s a hard thing to do, I know. Trust me I know. But even if you slip up and say something earth shatteringly humiliating, that person will think about it maybe a couple of times that day, and immediately forget about it. People are very self-absorbed and for once it’s a good thing. Ask people to get lunch or coffee. Use group projects for good instead of evil! Complain about the project with your group over coffee!! I have used this technique several times for good successful makeouts and also academic networking.
This post is way longer than it should have been, but I have a lot of thoughts and feelings for fellow late bloomers. But mostly I just want you to do things on your own time! Without input from romantic interests and without pressure from friends. You do you, and remember that you can call a time out any time you want.
