In Hysterics


See Them All and Name Them All


By Marie Jensen


Dear Teenager,

So I recently published an article about how I’d been raped repeatedly as a teen by my youth pastor, and in the article, I explored how it took me a long time to name what had happened to me, because there hadn’t been a knife to my throat and I hadn’t been…



Badass women from history

  1. Leather clad English rocker girl
  2. Women boxing on a roof in LA (1933)
  3. Ellen O’Neal, the greatest woman freestyle skateboarder in the 1970s
  4. Elspeth Beard, first Englishwoman to circumnavigate the world by motorcycle

The first photograph is from 2009. Ancient history!







a kid from my school sent me a pic an elaborate painting of atticus finch shirtless smoking a blunt while a colt 45 is being poured on him along with a text that read “hot dad 2: dad harder” and this is the closest thing to a sext I have ever received

You neglected to mention the Tupac and Biggie cherubs how dare you.

look there’s a lot going on here it makes perfect sense that they’d forget some details

Anonymous said: I'm wondering if this project is solely focused on physical and sexual abuse - I've recently left a relationship in which my partner was controlling and mentally and emotionally abusive. I believe that he was an abusive person who had simply not yet hit me. I guess I'm wondering if a contribution about what I've learned about myself would be helpful to people in terms of what to watch out for and what to do to help yourself during and after an experience like mine.


Great question! We really don’t have any restrictions on subject matter. If it affected your life and you think others might benefit from hearing your story—if reading it when you were in this relationship would have made YOU feel less alone—it has a place here. I think some of the subtler forms of abuse/manipulation/general shittiness can be really difficult to articulate, or even identify as abuse when you’re going through them. There are so many people (teens and adults) struggling with self-doubt, self-blaming, and gaslighting because their relationship doesn’t seem “that bad” or like “real abuse.” So, yes, we would absolutely love to read about your experiences. Thank you so much for getting in touch.


PS, for everyone else, here are some other things that we’d be thrilled to take submissions about:

body image
academic pressures
toxic friendships
dead parents
dead friends
dead pets
just kind of feeling creeped out by a person without knowing if it crossed the line
disagreeing with your parents’ politics, especially if they are right-wing/evangelical/slut-shamey/racist
the nuances of consent
resources for boys
how to support your friends if any of these things happen to them
etc etc etc etc x infinity

i had one of those as a teenager, and it’s still really defining my life in a lot of ways. because of a lot of the caveats expressed, i didn’t seek help about it for a long time, either. dear teenager: let me know if you want to talk.


misspiggysnout gave me this prompt yesterday and I got really excited about drawing it. 
I think this is quite possibly the best fan art I’ve ever drawn.

this is&#8230; so beautiful.
