i hate when you voluntarily tell your parents some information about your life because you think you can trust them and then they bitch at you for it like congrats you have guaranteed that i will never tell you anything ever again
Or they hold it over your head and fucking mock you, even in front of guests, with it for the rest of eternity.
patriarchy in action
I don’t know if you know this but
men can lose their virginity too
I don’t know if you know this, but society doesn’t place any fucking value on men’s virginity…nor has it ever systemically trained men to think of themselves as only being worthy of marriage if they’re still a virgin.
Society doesn’t tell men they’re tainted or dirty when they lose their virginity it praises them.
Society’s never PAID men’s families for their virginity…NOR HAS IT EVER PROMISED WOMEN who do good that they’ll get to “have sex with a 1000 virgin men” when they go to heaven.

You can choose what kind of tree you want to become
Idk I just find this beautiful
just imagine cemeteries looking like this
a forest of living, changing, beautiful trees. I think a tombstone holds much more finality in death than a tree. It’s like you are living on symbolically through something greater than yourself.
this is a serious post about how much I want this. I’ll make sure my family knows.
I had a friend that wanted this :/
“Just do good”
this is literally what i have been saying since i was born
four for you Pope Francis, you go Pope Francis
I’m so happy right now.
I’m less ashamed to say I’m a Catholic in moments like this.
- Nintendo releases the Wii U with hardly any first party games
- They take their time to develop them
- Microsoft and Playstation showing off consoles with no games
- Nintendo waiting for both companies to flop at E3
- Nintendo suddenly drops a megaton amount of first party games for the Wii U
- Everybody flocks to it because the other consoles have a higher price point and less games to offer
- Iwata’s face when everything worked out according to plan
this will never stop being relevant
‘We Have Always Fought’: Challenging the ‘Women, Cattle and Slaves’ Narrative
An incredible article about the myths of women’s role in history, our biases from patriarchal education and media, and how not addressing those biases creates a feedback loop in fiction that perpetuates sexism.
A must read!
We forget what the story’s about. We erase women in our stories who, in our own lives, are powerful, forthright, intelligent, terrifying people. Women stab and maim and kill and lead and manage and own and run. We know that. We experience it every day. We see it.
[T]he trouble is, it’s often hard to sort out what we actually experienced from what we’re told we experienced, or what we should have experienced. We’re social creatures, and fallible.
I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS PICTURE FOR SO LONG
My mom just told me I was going to Hell for laughing at this

“Old Economy Steve”
mad as hell
A student blows up at a teacher, drops the F-bomb. The usual approach at Lincoln – and, safe to say, at most high schools in this country – is automatic suspension. Instead, Sporleder sits the kid down and says quietly: “Wow. Are you OK? This doesn’t sound like you. What’s going on?”
He gets even more specific: “You really looked stressed. On a scale of 1-10, where are you with your anger?” The kid was ready. Ready, man! For an anger blast to his face….”How could you do that?” “What’s wrong with you?”…and for the big boot out of school. But he was NOT ready for kindness.
The armor-plated defenses melt like ice under a blowtorch and the words pour out: “My dad’s an alcoholic. He’s promised me things my whole life and never keeps those promises.” The waterfall of words that go deep into his home life, which is no piece of breeze, end with this sentence: “I shouldn’t have blown up at the teacher.” Whoa. —

what a radical idea yo
Bam. Kids “misbehave” for actual, real, valid reasons. And have feelings.
For fuck’s sake, it takes the people in charge so long to figure shit like this out! Good for Lincoln High!
This needs to be the policy EVERYWHERE…
We’ve done it, we’ve reached the pinnacle of human evolution
