"It’s important to keep your feelings and your self worth in different places, because when feelings get hurt it shouldn’t change how you view yourself."
Niumbaha superba - the “Panda Bat”.
Origins: South Sudan
The genus Niumbaha was created to classify the Panda Bat, as it has many unique characteristics apart from any other genus. The word “Niumbaha” means “rare” or “unusual” in Zande, the language of the Azande people of the region where the bat was discovered.

"If you don’t like where you are, move on. You are not a tree."
"As women, we are taught to be tiny. To have small bodies, to never be imposing. The ideal of our gender are thin and childlike, hairless and dainty. We are defined by our bodies; defined by our control over them. We are taught to obsess over our physicality and to be repulsed by our desires and intelligences.
We are taught to walk scared late at night. We cradle our keys between our perfectly manicured fingers, walking gracefully like a baby antelope in a herd of lions. That our virginity defines our character. That I am a frigid bitch if I do not fuck him, and a dirty slut if I do."
You know how people buy drinks for girls in bars? Why can’t people do that in book stores? Like if I’m looking at a novel in Barnes and Noble and some person walks up to me and strikes up a conversation and offers to buy the book for me there is a lot better chance of that working out in their favor
I’m going to reblog this until it’s a cultural norm.

"Curvy women are real women. Skinny women are real women. Women who have had boob jobs or lip enhancements or liposuction are still real women. Women who wear makeup are real women. Size 0 may make no sense mathematically, but a woman who wears that size is as real as the one who wears a size 16. What makes us “real” people is not the shape of our flesh but our basic humanity. And we lose our humanity when we judge –not when we lose weight, gain weight, wear makeup or make the intensely personal decision to undergo cosmetic surgery."
