the FIRST thing he said to me was “you smell really good” and I was so..put off…and uncomfortable…I was like …”wonderstruck by Taylor Swift…” he was like “u like Taylor Swift…” I was like “…yea…” he was like “…I like Taylor Swift…is that weird…” I was like …….RIP……why me lmao 
he asked me for my number and I was too freaked to think of a fake so I gave him it and he texted na called me and I changee NGED MY NUMBER TO ESCAPE HIM LMAO  OO O 

Anonymous: The guys in my class have been making a list of the prettiest girls in the class and I'm not on it and I know it's literally the DUMBEST thing to be upset over and their opinions don't matter at all but it just kinda makes me feel bad especially because lately I've been trying to feel better about myself and this doesn't really help idk idk it's dumb 

um lmao that sounds like the worst thing ever tbh 
I don’t like that one bit 
anyway is this high school?? I’m assuming it is 
high school boys are so damn extra just all the fuckin time the boys in my high school did some shit like that once it was SO…STUPID….anyway it’s not dumb to get upset over but idk man it’s not worth obsessing over I guess haha you gotta shake it off and get to college where the boys will flock to you

Anonymous: Hey, Madeline. I recently began using tumblr again after walking away from it for a few years and I saw your URL from one of the blogs I was stalking. It sounded sooooo familiar that I had to check out your blog. Even your pic looked familiar.

Then it clicked right away when I saw you post something about you screaming your lungs out at a Jonas Brothers concert because our bae (Taylor. Not her lamp) came out as a surprise. I laughed so hard back then! Such a golden video. And you. You're su 

(2) You’re such a golden human being. I feel like I know you though I never tried to reach out to you back then. The things you wrote made me amazingly happy and unbelievably sad. The post where you wrote about what Taylor Swift teaches to little girls spoke to me more than anything I’ve ever read. You are such a strong person with such an honest heart. 

Sorry if it’s too long. I just really wanted you to know all this. Thank you, Madeline.”

omfg…….I can’t believe this lmao AND I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU REMEMBER THAT VIDEO!!!!!! THE CLASIC…THE ORIGINAL….I USED TO SHOW THAT VID TO EVERRRYYONEEEE HAHAHA EVERYONE I EVER MET HAS SEEN THAT VIDEO AT ONE POINT. 
Omfg thank you for reading my writing, and thanks for liking it?!?!?!?! THANK YOU BUDDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Anonymous: hi madeline need ur feminist opinion on emma watsons UN speech i thought it was amazing and think the HerForShe campaign is really good and changing peoples perspective of feminism is v important but then i saw this girl on fb saying how "the last thing we need is more male voices in such important aspects of women's lives" and that this campaign isn't a positive step for feminism soo i wanted to know what ur thoughts are? 

the main problem with feminism today and why people think it’s dying is because there USED to be a clear definition of what feminism is and there USED to be a set of (I don’t wanna use the word rules bc it sounds too like..idk..stupid lmao) but a set of beliefs you know associated with it, it was all very SPECIFIC.
these days feminism has become this vague term and people walk around saying shit like “IF YOU BELIEVE MEN AND WOMEN SHOULD BE EQUAL THEN YOU’RE A FEMINIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” period and that’s it. You’re not a feminist just for thinking men and women should be equal, it goes a LOT deeper than that - but shit like this is said constantly. All the time lmao. And I get that it’s a way to bring more people into the movement because who’s HONESTLY going to disagree with a blanket statement like “men and women should be equal.”
but when you start working with blanket statements, you get a lot of…confusion lmao. Feminism now is more disjointed than it’s ever been. We’ve got white feminists over here who think it’s okay to be racist, and we’ve got fuckin TERF’s who think it’s cool to exclude transwomen from feminism, and we’ve got women who think that men don’t deserve a place in feminism. 
As for me, my feminism is not exclusionary, and NO feminism should be exclusionary if you’re asking me. That’s just not how it works. Feminism is supposed to be a place where ALL oppressions, whoever they affect and wherever they exist, are spoken about and where we seek to demolish these oppressions; it’s my belief that there is a place for men in feminism.
Things like Take Back The Night and that sort of thing (which are women only events mostly) are another matter for obvious reasons, but in terms of feminism on the broader sense, I just don’t get the whole “men can’t be feminists” thing because I think it perpetuates shit ideas and creates friction between the genders when like…isn’t that what we’ve been trying to get rid of???
Saying we don’t need “more male voices” is true in one sense - we don’t need “more male voices” telling women what to do or more male voices shitting all over feminism - but having male voices supporting women and supporting feminism??? I’m for that tbh 

ANYWAY lmao I loved her speech

Anonymous: oh u defended her madeline u werent like "what she said was ok/right" but u were like "how can u blame her when we're raised in this feminism-hating society" remember 

I’m gonna dig up the exact post bc I know what you’re referring to and when u read the entire thing I think your memory will be jogged as to why I wasn’t defending her haha 

http://andthatlittleblackdress.tumblr.com/post/84858377046/cameronsmonaghan-do-you-consider-yourself-a

I wasn’t giving her an out I was just pointing out that lipstick feminism (and a LOT of tumblr feminism for that matter) is fucking us up the ass and turning women away from the movement

Anonymous: Madeline I'm really mad Taylor's releasing a song next Monday cause that's when one directions comes out and idk I know most people are probably like its a coincidence but I'm past that with Taylor I feel like she knows exactly what she's doing like back off man let them have their moment 

well I think even if she WERE releasing on Monday, if she’s gonna do 4 pre-releases before the album at one a week like…she don’t got a choice lmao it just HAPPENS to be on a day when 1D releases 
besides if she is doing pre-releases, the PREVIEW would be Monday and the release would be Tuesday

Anonymous: a few months ago u were defending shailene woodley u like hate her now?? 

I never for 8.5 seconds not for a nanosecond defended what she said about feminism 
if I defended her for something else at some point BEFORE that (but I don’t think I did lmao u have me confused with someone else bc I liked her before but I never DEFENDED her bc she never did anything wrong up to that point) then idk

Anonymous: I JUST HAD A THOUGHT: what if the Katy Perry song that Bad Blood kinda references/sounds like is actually Roar?? Only because it starts with "I used to bite my tongue & hold my breath" and that would really line up with how Taylor felt during past interactions with Katy and now she's finally speaking out about it??? JUST A THOUGHT. 

Omfg when I was thinkin of what that fan meant when she said it sounded like a K perry song I instantly went to Dark Horse bc I wanted it to be u know dark lmao but Roar would probably make the most sense????
