More people are concerned with why women stay in abusive relationships than why men are abusing women

I really like Harry Styles: the way he treats women.
A lot of the time, the way it’s portrayed is that I only see women in a sexual way. But I grew up with just my mum and sister, so I respect women a lot.
#i hear the criticism a lot that harry’s just playing to the cameras #or he’s media trained #or he’s saying what he thinks people want to hear #and while i personally disagree with most of that #at the end of the day i really don’t even fucking care if he means it #i care that he DOES it #i care that he refuses to engage with the premise of those questions #i care that he says the word objectify in an angry way #i care that he’s not another in a long line of male celebrities that goes along with the bullshit #that further underscores to young women that they are a commodity #that they are ornamental #that they are scores on a card #young girls who are watching this don’t know the difference between media savvy and actual humanity #it doesn’t fucking matter to them #it matters that harry styles says that women are not games #it matters that he doesn’t talk about tits and arse #one direction is where it is because of young women #and harry seems to get that #whether or not his interview answers are tongue in cheek doesn’t fucking matter at all #at the end of the day you hear what he’s saying #it matters to the kids watching this #and to the rest of us too (x)
Confidence is the only key. I know a lot of people who aren’t traditionally ‘beautiful’ - not symmetrical or perfect-bodied or perfect-skinned. But none of that matters because all that shines through is their confidence, humor and comfort with themselves. I can’t think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself.
