i remember one time this dude sent me a shirtless pic with the caption “lol maybe u can save this for a rainy day ;)”
and i was like “for what? to keep me dry? because that’s what it’s doing right now”
roses can be red
violets aren’t fucking blue
this is an actual correct poem
bottom line: i’d like to fuck you
People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.
Watch the powerful Verizon advertisement to really understand what a little girl hears when you tell her she’s pretty.
this is why i’m raising ella to do whatever makes her happy. i believe in skinned knees, dirty hands, climbing as high as she can, the curiosity of space and how everything works. i will never let her believe that being a girl is holding her back from anything. i will never get tired of her asking, “what’s that?” or sitting with her for 15 minutes while she watches how machinery works in our every day adventures, as i do my best to explain what it all means. this is important. my patience in her curiosity and ability to achieve has already made a huge impact in her life. ella will be 2 years old on friday and already tells herself, “i got it” when faced with a new challenge and “i did it!” when she accomplishes it.
raise your daughters to be self-aware beyond their looks. raise your daughters to always be curious. raise your daughters to work hard. raise your daughters to have passions that make them happy. raise your daughters to be whatever the fuck they want to be.
This is so important
why are you so fired up over feminism and rape culture
- because i woke up from a nap with a boys hands sliding down my jeans and when I left him with a black eye he told everyone i was a bitch and a slut that he used for sex when I had never had sex at all
- because my close friend was raped in her dorm room and now she can’t get in bed without checking that the door is locked 3 times
- because “she was asking for it” is still said
- because no doesn’t mean no in todays society
- because i can’t wear shorts in 90 degree weather without being oversexualized
- because the phrase “boys will be boys” is still in existance
- BECAUSE IT IS IMPORTANT AND SOMETHING TO BE FIRED UP OVER
"I was the first of the Potter actors to learn to drive. I passed my test at the second time of trying. On the set, there’d always be a lot of talk about cars among the cast, although Daniel Radcliffe never joined in. He’s never been into cars at all. My first ambition was to become an ice-cream man, which is why I bought the Bedford van. Not long after I first got it, I pulled into a pub to do a U-turn and there were eight kids with their pocket money out, hoping to buy a 99 or whatever. But I had nothing to give them. I’ve learnt my lesson since then. I keep my van well stocked. It’s got a proper machine that dispenses Mr Whippy ice cream and I buy my lollies wholesale – 50 for a tenner – so I never run short. I’m not allowed to sell my merchandise. I’d need a licence for that. I tend to avoid July and August, but the rest of the year I’ll drive around the local villages and if I see some kids looking like they’re in need of ice creams, I’ll pull over and dish them out for free. They’ll say, “Ain’t you Ron Weasley?” And I’ll say, “It’s strange, I get asked that a lot.” The van often comes in useful. I drove it up to the set on the last day of filming on Harry Potter. The cast and crew were having a barbecue and I supplied the lollies and ice creams.’"
"Don’t ever compliment me by insulting other women. That’s not a compliment, it’s a competition none of us agreed to."

This is very important.
Right now, men just need to shut up, read these and learn. We HAVE to do better.
