You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge.
Apologize for mistakes. Apologize for unintentionally hurting someone — profusely. But don’t apologize for being who you are.

Discovered in 1779 by Johann Gottfried Koehler and later catalogued by Charles Messier. Like most elliptical galaxies, M60 lacks active star formation and is essentially composed of very old stars, giving it a characteristic red hue. M60 also features one of the largest black holes ever found, weighing in at about 4.5 trillion times the mass of the sun!

Reblogging because I mentioned this study in a post the other day and someone reblogged & replied insinuating that I’d made it up, but I didn’t have the citation on hand right then. As I said then: rape culture is what teaches rapists that they aren’t rapists.
