↳ We teach girls shame. “Close your legs. Cover yourself.” We make them feel as though being born female they’re already guilty of something. And so, girls grow up to be women who cannot say they have desire. They grow up to be women who silence themselves. They grow up to be women who cannot say what they truly think. And they grow up — and this is the worst thing we do to girls — they grow up to be women who have turned pretense into an art form. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

#anyone who looks at allison argent and is incapable of understanding the motivation behind her choices and actions is a fucking idiot #it’s hammered home time and time again exactly what sort of upbringing she had #and exactly what values were instilled in her #the upheaval in her life is on par with scott’s #both of them were thrust into the world of werewolves with little preparation and little to no choice #her loss is equal to characters such as stiles and derek #she only has two family members left #the others died horrific deaths #one happened in front of her eyes #the other happened in her bedroom #gerard is her equivalent to peter #her family lied to her for most of a season #just like the rest of them lied to lydia #she was manipulated into immoral actions #just like jackson was turned into a tool of murder as the kanima #that’s not to mention the immense pressure she puts on herself #to the point where her worst fear is the revelation of her weakness #allison argent has been through hell and passed out on the other side #she’s one of the strongest #best developed characters on the show #so what exactly is it that you have trouble understanding??
this is my favorite mugshot because I’ve never seen such perfect contouring
