  2. Women who choose to wear the hijab or fast or observe any form of religious practice are fighting the same battle as any Christian, Jewish, or Hindu feminist. Her hijab doesn’t illustrate a man’s authority over her, but rather her control over her own body, which is an invaluable message for a society where the hyper-sexualization of women is a norm. Think about that the next time you see a Muslim woman out on the street.

    The Last Japanese Mermaids 

    For nearly two thousand years, Japanese women living in coastal fishing villages made a remarkable livelihood hunting the ocean for oysters and abalone, a sea snail that produces pearls. They are known as Ama. The few women left still make their living by filling their lungs with air and diving for long periods of time deep into the Pacific ocean, with nothing more than a mask and flippers.

    In the mid 20th century, Iwase Yoshiyuki returned to the fishing village where he grew up and photographed these women when the unusual profession was still very much alive. After graduating from law school, Yoshiyuki had been given an early Kodak camera and found himself drawn to the ancient tradition of the ama divers in his hometown. His photographs are thought to be the only comprehensive documentation of the near-extinct tradition in existence

  7. There should be something you do to yourself to satisfy the need for non-sexual affection, like masturbation but for cuddling.

    For me it’s yoga
