"There is no such thing on earth as an uninteresting subject; the only thing that can exist is an uninterested person."
G.K. Chesterton, Heretics (via wordsnquotes)
"And one last small tirade on female sexuality… Guys who would make fun of girls for sexual inexperience are terrible people, and when girls do it to other girls it feels even shittier. Guys who shame girls who haven’t had sex want them to feel like they aren’t doing their job, which is to be sexually available and attractive to men.
