Theon is dying slowly. Asha is waiting. A storm is brewing somewhere far out to sea. (Or, alternately - how Theon survives, how Asha hates waiting, and how quiet it can get in the eye of a storm.)

Under the hot desert sun, water is the only thing that keeps you alive.
AU; Asha flees south instead of north after Euron is crowned king, where she finds safe harbor in Dorne. Arianne sees another piece to add to her father’s cyvasse table.
So I got sent to the dean today for wearing this top. My study tech teacher said that I was “exploiting” myself and that it could be a distraction to the other students. I got up out of my seat and told her that I wasn’t going to listen to her dress codes. In a way, she was being misogynist and slut shaming and I think that’s wrong. I will continue to wear what I want and nobody can tell me not to. The fact that womens bodies are sexualized and objectified so much angers me and that’s the reason why this happened. I’m going to wear what I want, how I want, when I want and that’s it.
I was there, reblog the shit out of this guys
I’m a guy. I can’t wear a shirt like this either, even though I’m not going to be wearing a bra. it’s dress code. It’s not slut shaming. You can’t show your bra like that at most jobs. why should you at school? Yes sexism is wrong and all that, but you can’t get ‘angry at the patriarchy” because you can’t show your undergarments in public. I’m not going to wear jeans with a rip in the side or the front that show off my flowery boxers, because that’s just not appropriate for school. Have some professionalism. You can wear whatever you like at home or with your friends or whatever, yes, but school prepares you for real life.
At work you can’t have this attitude of “I wear the fuck ever I want.” and expect to keep your job. School is the same way because it’s trying to teach you that lesson. That’s unrealistic; almost any job you get is going to have someone tell you what to wear or what to do because you work for them and you represent their company. If you don’t look the way they need you to look, that makes them look bad. A tattoo parlor probably isn’t going to hire someone who dresses like a nun and a top company isn’t going to hire someone who comes to work in a tank top that shows off her bra or a guy that shows off his ballsack.
You can’t blame patriarchy for this, I’m sorry. You can’t blame sexism for this. If I wore booty shorts and you could almost see my balls through my semi transparent flowery goddamn boxers, I would get in the same amount of trouble as you, and it’s within good reason.
Please, girls, I also hate sexism but dont try to be “rebeld” everywhere, come on, if you have that attitude you are going to get fired in most of works.
Dont get mad for every single rule in the world. You can be feminist AND also mature, think about it.
School is not a business, though. Schools are not meant to project an image. The reason that schools implement dress codes like this is not because they want their students to look professional or respectful, because if it was they would have rules against multi-colored hair or piercings or wearing t-shirts with sharpie signatures all over them - things that I’m sure many jobs would object to. The reasons that they gave us in the school that I went to for why we shouldn’t wear short-shorts or have bra-straps showing was expressly about ‘sexual suggestiveness’ and it being ‘a distraction to the boys.’ Which is patently ridiculous, because honestly? That photo is of her armpit, a bit of rib, and a piece of fabric. Which is suggestive of what, exactly? That she has breasts? We all know that women have breasts, alright. It’s a fact. Let’s move on. It’s ridiculous to get in trouble for the so-called indecency above and it would be ridiculous if she were male, too.
Equating the situation to a dress code at a job isn’t an accurate comparison, because you’re a) required by law to attend school and adhere to their dress-codes, whereas you can quit a job if the requirements interfere with your life or the way you feel about yourself and b) schools do not need to present a marketable image. They teach you things, that’s all they should do. I agree that if the way someone dresses is truly disruptive to that necessity then it is worth reprimanding, but this girl’s bra is in no way disruptive to anyone’s learning. It is literally a piece of fabric. The fact that the device we use to hold our goddamn boobs is sexualized to the point that it’s seen as obscene is honestly fucked up. Dress codes themselves aren’t sexist, but the sexualization of normal things like shoulders and ribs and thighs is.
yo what-up~ this has basically become my side-blog but i’m logged in now so I’ll reblog some stuff

I have a gay crush on you and it's getting really annoying because I haven't seen you or been around you for years. ok im done bye
… if this is the person I think/hope it is, then I have a gay crush on you, too, still, and we are pretty much set for life, because I would ride off into the sunset with you in about .05 seconds. if you’re not who i think you are - and the chances of that are high, because how often do things work out and we all get what we want? - I probably still would like to talk to you, because odds are if we knew each other back when I was in high school, I feel really bad about ditching you (and everyone) the way I did, anyway.
can you tell me what letter your name starts with?
