no but actually I feel like there is a very big hurdle that I have yet to get over in terms of social justice/feminism
“body positivity! but I also need to lose thirty pounds I look disgusting”
“makeup is a choice!! but I’m going to keep wearing it even though I hate it and it’s hurting and scarring my eyes”
“slut-shaming and prude-shaming are tools of the patriarchy!! but I’m going to be horrifically embarrassed about my history even in a safe space among my closest friends”
“the idea that you need a college and graduate degree to be a successful person is ridiculous! but I will hurl myself off of galen if I don’t get into medical school!!!!!!”
And even a bonus slide for any remaining queries:
Share amongst your friends.
Quick, messy graphic to explain a concept that seems obvious to me:
We shouldn’t be helping women because they’re related to someone else. We shouldn’t be helping women because someone else cares about them. We should be helping women because they are people.
We should be helping women for their own sake.
Why is that a hard concept for people to grasp?
The strongest ‘pound for pound’ muscle is the uterus: it weighs around 2 pounds but during childbirth can exert a downward force of 400 Newtons, which is one hundred times as strong as gravity and equivalent to the power in a fully extended modern longbow.
I need masculism because I am afraid.

The latest rumors surrounding the Xbox One are that the demos that Microsoft allowed people to play on at E3 were not running on an Xbox One, but instead running on high-end PCs with Titan graphics cards.
If this is the case, they were running the games on a system that is around 3x faster than the Xbox One.
These rumors are backed up by images that clearly show a high-end desktop under the displays of the Xbox One stands at E3.
Its like a train wreck that you can’t look away from
Hoop nachos. Just another little thing we love about Wellesley.

Dear Ten-Year-Old Self,
Before you ask me when you have your first kiss or if you’ll ever have a boyfriend, I need to tell you some more important stuff first. What’s more important than a first kiss, you ask? Plenty. First of all, don’t let that kid in your class, Danny, who called you fat, make you self-consciously wear oversized sweatshirts for the next four years to hide your body. That kid is horrible and years from now he will be boring and bald and trying to get in touch with you to come to the set of the TV show you work on. No, you don’t work on Cheers. That show’s not on the air anymore. That would’ve been awesome, though. Another thing: Say thank you, always. Gratitude is the closest thing to beauty manifested in an emotion. When you’re grateful, people are attracted to you. Also: Make sure you appreciate Mom and Dad. Yes, they never seem to let you do anything now except read books. Once you turn 18 you’ll never get to live with them again, and you’ll live far away, and you will miss them so much it hurts. Next: Learn forgiveness and bestow it generously. Finally: Don’t let anyone give you any crap. Mastering a balance of these last two will take you a lifetime, so you had better get started now. (x) - Mindy Kaling
This is a reminder that Lucy Liu is older than Jonny Lee Miller and makes more money per episode of Elementary than he does.
