I'm 42. The best advice I've got for you is... don't give people advice.
its weird that mostly all vegetarians and vegans only wanna fight for animals but not the underpaid/overworked people that pick their $15 organic grapes from Whole Foods in the sweltering sun for 15 hours at a time
I worked in a pet shop for a year, and my basic attitude toward anyone who didn't want to set up their aquarium properly to take care of their fish because "well, it's JUST a FISH" is FIGHT ME. So good to know there's more of us lunatics out there.
I love the tone of voice this was written in
Y’all let me tell you something adorable that happened today. We were on the bus heading downtown and this girl gets on, and she’s hella cute y’all, just adorable in her velvet top and her mini-skirt and her sneakers, and she’s a larger girl with a big tummy and killer thighs, but she also looks kinda shy and was holding her head down and her body language was very uncomfortable and I’ve been there, I’ve put on my “I want to wear this so I totally will wear this” outfit and spent the entire day pulling my skirt down or subtly trying to hide my belly by holding my bag in front of me because my self confidence wavers between “radiant as the sun” and “second level of hell just let me die”.
So not wanting to be That Creepy Older Person Who Says Something, I just give her my biggest smile and make some gesture which I hope implies “I love your everything, it’s so purple!”
But the girl behind me? She has no such qualms, she sees this other girl coming and she says loudly so everyone can hear “Oh my gosh you’re so pretty! I love all of you!”
I dunno if you’ve ever seen what happens when girls compliment other girls in public, especially girls that don’t know each other. But Lord it is beautiful and you could power a city for a year from the brightness of her smile in that moment.
Anne Henry, co-founder of the BizParentz Foundation: “We believe Hollywood is currently sheltering about 100 active abusers.”
OMG! i’m so glad he’s in a space where he can talk about this, because its pretty well known that Hollywood is a cesspool for child molesters and are basically all high ranking individuals. absolutely despicable
also from Anne Henry and important:
“We estimate that about 75 percent of the child actors who ‘went off the rails’ suffered earlier abuse. Drug addiction, alcoholism, suicide attempts, wandering through life without a purpose—they can all be symptoms.”
thank god someone is speaking out. so many people know about it, but only a precious few are willing to expose it.
Of course, at this point, my apologies go something like, "I'm really sorry that when I said I have a disability, I meant that I always have it, not just I have it at home, or I have it only enough to make me 'quirky'. I'm sorry that I continue to be disabled, even when it's not convenient for you, or me, or really, anyone else in a ten foot radius."
when you have to use up a ton of your spoons articulately apologizing for being disabled
Man, I'm glad it's not just me.
I won't lie, I feel this one on a deeply personal level.
Yeah, well... where you YOU when our babies were burning?
instead of redemption arcs, how about vegeta arcs. like how a character is now living perhaps with the heroes and interacting with them casually and is sorta part of the group.
They’re still a asshole, they haven’t changed in the slightest personality wise and maybe even don’t care about anything they’ve done in the past let alone feel remorse. They just hang around the heroes now for whatever reason.
Of course that's not Hell. Hell is in Michigan, and Michigan doesn't have any *actual* mountains.
GO OFF SIS 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾Read it and then read it again.
“The Most Disrespected Person in America is the Black woman.“👊🏾✊🏿
And yall wonder why black women are angry.
This is why respectability politics, mean nothing. Michelle followed the respectability politics yall laid out for us to a Tee (be educated, be a “good” mother, be a supportive wife, dress modestly, always have your hair done, set a good example, respect yourself first), and the world STILL shames and disrespects her like this.
But keep telling us how the problem is that we wear weave. Keep telling us how the problem is that we act like hoes. Keep telling us that the problem is we don’t “respect” ourselves. Keep telling us that the problem is we’re too strong, we don’t know how to follow behind our man. Keep telling us that the problem is how we carry ourselves instead of just admiting that this world hates black women regardless of what we do.
Her educational achievement, her scandal free life, her contributions to Obama’s presidency or how she carries herself is irrelevant.the oly thing that can make a woman GREAT in their eyes is being white and the standard of ‘pretty’.
A lot of anti-feminist will compare first and second wave feminism to our current form of feminism. Often the comparisons consist of saying how fist and second wave feminism was needed, but third wave is just a “bunch of girls being sluts and whiney bitches.” However, it’s worth noting that there have always been anti-feminist and they used many of the same insults as antis today use.
That feminist are ugly
That feminist are just women who are angry about not having a man
Or that feminist are just outright man-haters
Or just good old fashioned threats
It’s funny how after nearly a century we’er still seeing the same sort of insults from the anti-feminist movement which basically relies on women deriving their worth from how men view them, which is one of the things third wave feminism focuses on changing.
So the next time an anti tries to delegitimize third wave feminism by comparing it to the first and second wave, just remember they probably would have been the ones making posters just like these
head canon accepted.
i have an idea in my head where thor is just like. painfully incapable of being cissexist.
like some transphobic reporter asks him abt his sexuality and he’s “i have been attracted to many of your midgardian genders” and “what” and “my current paramor is genderqueer” “are they male or female” “they are neither of those two genders, that is what i have just said!” “oh well what were they born as“ “oh no, dear friend, u appear to be confusing genderqueer with genderfluid! the lady mystique assures me that these are two very different things, [extremely extended explanation]”
oh my gosh yes
“but what are they biologically?”
“…they are human.”
oh my god
“But what is between their legs?!”
“That is not of your concern, but on a good day, myself!”
#thor’s the kind of guy who would hear that joke #you know #’who wears the pants in your relationship?’ #’well if we’re doing it the right way #neither of us’ #and he’d just BELLOW with laughter #because yes no pants for both of us #excellent (via tinpanali)
when people put you in like five different therapies and it’s way too many
The Curious Case of May Parker
It’s happening in the cartoons, too:
Aunt May (and Ms. Lion) from Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends (1980s)
Aunt May from Spider-Man: The Animated Series (1990s)
Aunt May from The Spectacular Spider-Man (2000s)
Aunt May from Ultimate Spider-Man (2010s)
True facts: Every time Peter’s uncle Ben dies in the latest origin story May absorbs the life force left over from his remaining years and uses it to rejuvenate herself
Uncle Ben dies over and over again to keep her young
TW for csa, child sexual abuse
whenever people act like gay media will influence kids to be gay i want to remind them that gay children grew up with only straight people on television
