I honestly can’t believe this right now. I was complaining to my bf about some Kotex tampons I had used, going on a bit of a rant about how bad they were, and on a whim I decided to go to the website and leave a review so other people who might get them would know better.
I’ve never written a tampon review in my life (it’s not something I ever anticipated doing) so I had a little fun getting very passionate about my thoughts, and then went to submit…. Only to receive the words: ‘Your review text contains inappropriate language.’ I was confused at first, I mean I was pretty emphatic, but I didn’t cuss at all… and then I realized: I had typed the word ‘vagina.’
You can’t type the word ‘vagina’ on a TAMPON review because it’s considered inappropriate.
KOTEX, a company that makes OVER A BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR primarily selling products to people with vaginas, thinks that someone typing the word “VAGINA” in a review of a product that goes IN THEIR VAGINA is being inappropriate and needs to be censored.
I retyped “v*gina” with an asterisk like it was a swear word, submitted and it went to preview mode with no problem. But I’m still kind of in shock… Honestly, what is wrong with Kotex that they think they need to protect tampon users from the word ‘vagina’?
If you didn’t think our society’s fear of the vagina was absurd, here you go. It’s cartoonish.

The group started in 2010 and has since moved to other cities across the world. This is what love looks like. (via the Advocate)
'...make your life be filled with maths: think of an album title and multiply kindness, divide your worries, and add happiness. You have multiplied my happiness, I wish you good health. And all I'll say is uh... the best advice my dad ever gave me. And it can work whatever way in life:‘nothing ventured, nothing gained.’ If you feel worried about something, just do it.Because if you don’t do it, you’ll always wonder what would've happened if you did it, and if you do it and it fails, at least you tried it. So nothing ventured, nothing gained. Go out and do it.' - Ed Sheeran X/X

You will be shocked, kids, when you discover how easy it is in life to part ways with people forever.
That’s why, when you find someone you want to keep around, you do something about it.
If you’re gonna bail, bail early. This applies to relationships, college classes, and sledding,
