Sweat dreams ~ tuck yourself in and cuddle up for the night. <3
I’m so blessed to be surrounded by so much beauty. The fleeting moments I get to capture are so wonderful.
all i wanna do is *gunshot gunshot gunshot* kill the fear i have of making any really significant changes to my life so I can finally go out and do things that are important to me and start appreciating myself as a person *cash register noise*
THIS IS MY FEAR TOO! And also what I want to do. Lets make it happen. :D *Bicycle horn noise*
Single Woman’s Title = Miss
Married Woman’s Title = Mrs.
Unknown Woman’s Title = Ms.
Married Man’s Title = Mr.
Single Man’s Title = Mr.
Unknown Man’s Title = Mr.
Because a woman only has status if she is married
think about it.
add an apostrophe to Mrs = Mr’s.
think about it.
and then go throw up.
Okay, now the feminists are just nit-pick looking for things to be upset about. NEWSFLASH:NOT EVERYONE IS OUT TO GET YOU. COOL IT.
I don’t think this is nitpicking, it legitimately goes back to when women were legally the property of men. Their title of Miss or Mrs was a sign to others on whether or not they were married. Then I have to think, why was it so important for others to know if a women was married? I don’t know the exact reason, but any possible ones I can think of aren’t good.
I found this shirt while I was shopping and I’m still mad abt it
I agree it’s okay to not want a prince charming, and I feel its also okay to want a prince charming. What isn’t okay is the unequal representation of the two.
Sam swore nothing would change between Blaine and him after “guilty pleasures” week but something did. He begins to notice that sometimes while hanging out with Blaine the shorter boy falls into a complaisant mood around him. Sam swore he was imagining things and was happy the other boy…

i fucking hate group projects i don’t have time to wait for your part that you had all fucking weekend to do especially when i finished my part and i was in fucking vegas all weekend jesus christ
My exact situation right now! Okay well no, I didn’t go to Vegas… but my very similar situation right now!
In celebration of International Women’s Day, people are taking to the Internet to complain about Anita Sarkeesian. The first installment of her long-awaited video series about sexism in video games was released yesterday, inspiring an inevitable torrent of backlash. Aside from suggestions that she “stole” the Kickstarter funding for the Women vs. Tropes in Video Games series, much of the criticism is because she disabled comments on the YouTube video.
Leading the charge against Sarkeesian’s decision is Tumblr user amazingatheist, who posted a ten-minute video entitled “Who’s The Damsel Now?“ Arguing that Sarkeesian’s “censorship” of YouTube comments counteracts her message about strong women, and that her TED talk about online harassment amounts to “whining,” amazingatheist says:
“What are you afraid of, Anita? Why can’t people have a discourse about your material? Why can’t people make their opinions towards your content known? I understand that some comments will be abusive in nature — probably most will — but so what?”
Ironically, the existence of this response means by definition that amazingatheist is making his opinion known, as well as participating in a discourse about Sarkeesian’s material. [READ MORE]
The amazingatheist destroyed his own chance at participating in these discussions by being a misogynistic MRA. Just in case, that link needs a trigger/content warning so TW: rape, misogyny, abusive language.
The woman got bombarded with rape and death threats when she talked about the idea of doing this series. And people are up in arms about her not wanting to deal with that during her actual work??
So aside from the misogyny aspect here (and that isn’t to downplay it at all, because holy fucking shit you ASSHOLES,) I would like to point out something that appears to be lost on 95% of the denizens of The Intertubes:
No one is required to let you air your opinion in their space.
This includes the comments section of anything they upload to YouTube.
Seriously, the number of people who think that they are somehow owed the right to comment on things boggles me. You want to bitch about someone’s videos, comment on news articles, disagree with someone’s Facebook post? Go do it in your space. No one owes you shit.
And in particular, no one you are abusive and violent toward owes you shit.
I’m still boggling at this bit: “I understand that some comments will be abusive in nature — probably most will — but so what?”
Abusive in nature…but so what?
That comment says everything, doesn’t it?
After all, who fucking cares about what it’s like to receive death threats, rape threats? About what it’s like to have people barge into your space to pour violent, abusive vitriol all over your work? They are owed that opportunity, apparently. They are owed the opportunity to abuse you, and if you deny them that, you’re “censoring” them.
I would like everyone to think about that for a moment. @amazingatheist thinks it’s OK to threaten & abuse women he disagrees with - he’s done it himself, and he’s certainly never had any problem with anyone else doing it.
Abuse is OK. But protecting yourself from abuse? OH NO, CAN’T HAVE THAT.
What a shitstain.
If only there were SOME WAY these jackasses could express their opinions. Like, I don’t know, literally everywhere else on the internet. Seriously, I would be willing to bet that A Voice for Men has an entire section devoted to bashing Sarkeesian’s video series within the week.
seriously. what has our educational system become. i’ve tried to think of whether our generation is just too lazy, too dramatic, etc but i honestly think we are being over worked and have too high of expectations for our age and for how we are treated. we are told to eat 3 meals a day, get 8 hours of sleep, get to school on time, be in clubs, do sports, finish all of our homework etc. not to mention house work, jobs to pay for college (which is a complete other rant in itself) and still have time to spend unwinding. what many adults fail to understand is that when they were in school they didn’t have advanced placement classes (AP/college courses in high school), they didn’t have honors classes. these more advanced classes are undeniably required if you plan on getting into a good college. it all adds to the stress level of teenagers today. they always say that we have it easier because they didn’t have nearly as advanced technology as we do but it goes both ways. the more technology advances the more we are required to learn. and to be quite honest, the teenagers (with everything else that is going on in their lives) can only handle so much. they wonder why crime rates are going up, they wonder why more and more teenagers are depressed, committing suicide, etc. the problem is right under their nose.
for example: an athlete cannot be overworked by a coach, otherwise they crack under pressure and injuries are more and more common. the same goes for school. another thing i would like to point out is (where i live at least) many elementary schools have cut cursive writing out of the school curriculum. many people think this is outrageous since it has been something children were required to know and “would use for the rest of their lives” for SO long now but it just comes to prove how many things kids in just the 2nd grade must learn! you have youngsters learning long division 2 years earlier than i did when i was in elementary school. it’s crazy! now there’s nothing wrong with improvement, but there comes a time when it gets to be too much for people to handle.
i suppose what i am trying to say is that the human mind is a delicate thing, and people need to be reminded that memorizing all of this information can become unnecessary. there is a fine line between exposing students to certain material, and forcing them to memorize something they have no interest in majoring in. maybe there needs to be a few changes in our school systems today.
okay that’s my rant. sorry it’s soo long and sorry if it doesn’t make sense. it’s 12:30 am and i’m stressed out and i needed to get that off my mind so that i could continue to study for final exams tomorrow.
That was beautiful. Honest and beautiful.
I agree with this, but I’m also confused about something. In the past, say during the depression or pre-industrial revolution just for some pin points, haven’t youth had to work a lot harder and deal with even higher expectations? Just something that doesn’t add up for me. Perhaps the increasing demands of schooling and learning though are different than demands for ones livelihoods. As in, perhaps they present different problems.
That all being said, I want to reiterate that I really do agree with you fully. I myself am just confused about what I view as an incongruity.
Laundry kitty returns!
It’s chilly outside. :)
