There once was a young boy with a very bad temper. The boy’s father wanted to teach him a lesson, so he gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper he must hammer a nail into their wooden fence.
On the first day of this lesson, the little boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. He was really mad!
Over the course of the next few weeks, the little boy began to control his temper, so the number of nails that were hammered into the fence dramatically decreased.
It wasn’t long before the little boy discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.
Then, the day finally came when the little boy didn’t lose his temper even once, and he became so proud of himself, he couldn’t wait to tell his father.
Pleased, his father suggested that he now pull out one nail for each day that he could hold his temper.
Several weeks went by and the day finally came when the young boy was able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.
Very gently, the father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.
“You have done very well, my son,” he smiled, “but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same.”
The little boy listened carefully as his father continued to speak.
“When you say things in anger, they leave permanent scars just like these. And no matter how many times you say you’re sorry, the wounds will still be there.”

Having emotions is seen as weakness
Admitting weakness is seen as an even greater weakness
Being called a sexual deviant or a pervert because you were expressing your sexuality
A girl beating you in any physical competition makes you inferior
Being superficial makes you a pig but a woman being superficial is fine
Makeup isn't even an option
Not living up to the insanely unrealistic ideal of manhood automatically makes you gay
Being gay is seen as weak
You can't control the size of your "manhood"
You can't report sexual assaults because being a male victim is worse than being the rapist
No male specific support groups or movements
Unequal parental rights
Extreme feminists treating you less than human
Women can blame all men or say they are all the same but if a man blames women they're sexist pigs
People dismissing your problems automatically because the universe is obviously rigged in your favour in every scenario imaginable
No one will read this past the title

Hermione went alone and got attacked by a troll
Moaning Myrtle went alone too and was killed by a giant snake.
Katie Bell also went alone and was cursed by an opal necklace.
Taylor Swift went alone and Ellen Degeneres made her fall to the ground with fear.
Now she’s laying on the cold hard ground
She’s also never ever EVER getting back up again.
hasn’t been on my dash for a while, i love this so much, i don’t know why, i don’t like reblogging images of self harm, but this this has a meaning to it, i’m not sure what as there are so many possibilities this is just beautiful
i think it’s showing how someone so graceful and beautiful can also be hurting on the inside. that the people you would least expect could prove you wrong
this is the most perfect thing I have seen in my life. My favorite photo on tumblr, it gave me goosebumps.
