I just post stuff I like.
I’ve put together a simple chart that explains the various ways you should and shouldn’t summon a waiter over to your table, and the service you’re likely to receive accordingly.
Because if one more middle aged, obnoxious asshole goes “hey you!” and snaps their fingers at me, I WILL snap said person’s neck.
I waitressed my way through college and one night this guy yells at me “Oi! you with the tits!” and my co-worker Matthew walked up to him and said “yes?”

They wouldn’t say “Father of two meets world leaders today”
They’d say “President Obama meets world leaders today”.
They wouldn’t say “Father of three founds one of the most successful modern computer businesses.”
They’d say “Bill Gates founds one of the most successful modern computer businesses.”
Get your shit right and use women’s names, not the number of kids they have.
Emily Vancamp as Sharon Carter in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”
Here’s an example of what we call a “soft no”. Sharon turns down Steve’s offer in a way that’s meant not to insult him but never actually uses the word “no”.
Steve clearly gets the message, though, and importantly offers to leave her alone. Sharon’s comment afterwards gives him an opportunity to try again later, but he doesn’t press and respects her rejection of his company even though it’s probably hurt his feelings a bit.
Just in case you ever wonder “What would Captain America do?”; there you go.
never do something steve rogers wouldn’t do.
Unless it’s jumping out of a plane without a parachute, you probably shouldn’t do that
the first female chinese immigrant to america was a sixteen-year-old girl who was part of a cultural exhibit where she sat in a life-size diorama and people watched her eat with chopsticks while wearing silk clothes and that’s really all you need to know about the commodification of chinese women
Afong Moy. Her name was Afong Moy. Say the names of people who should be remembered.
Can we please, please talk about or at least acknowledge Simone Battle? A 25 year old black female singer who just committed suicide a few days ago?
High profile suicides are always white girls. Black girls’ stories are always swept aside. Please, let’s not let Simone Battle’s go unnoticed.
like, okay, i understand the “no, taylor, girl-on-girl hate is bad” response, but
- taylor very publicly called john mayer to task for abusing her
- john mayer said that he “never did anything to deserve” being taken to task, and added that writing the song was “a really lousy thing for her to do”
- When asked about the song’s line, “Don’t you think I was too young to be messed with?” Mayer says, “I don’t want to go into that.”
- john subsequently released a song slamming taylor swift
- katy perry, meanwhile, was dating john, publicly gushing about him, going on tour with him, recording duets and music videos with him, etc.
- and apparently attempted to hire a number of taylor’s key team out from under her while she was touring
- and i don’t like to see any of this dismissed as “girl hate” or “fighting over a guy”
- a teenage girl was abused and publicly named her abuser
- the abuser publicly lashed out at her
- his new partner took it upon herself to rehabilitate his image and talk about how wonderful and sensitive he was, and undercut his victim
- and when she was publicly called to task for this, she retaliated with, “watch out for the regina george in sheep’s clothing,” which is a fucking sick thing to say about a young woman who by her own admission was abused by someone close to you
like, let’s be very real, this is not “girl-on-girl hate,” this is a victim of abuse speaking out after being dragged through the mud by her much older abuser and his much older partner, who supported and replicated his public campaign of humiliation
Today I found out that my now ex employer had been stealing money from me. I am now without a job and nearly $2700 in the red. This was money I had been saving for months to move out and eventually go back to school next year, but now (obviously) that wont be happening since I can’t even afford to pay my phone bill anymore, let alone taking on paying rent or tuition. I am looking for several new jobs to help clear this debt, but I’m also asking you to help me out. Here is a link to my bandcamp. There is only one song there but it’s the only thing I have that I can actually “sell”, and I don’t feel comfortable asking for money without giving something back in return, no matter how small it may be. I would be extremely grateful if you would consider sharing this post and buying my song to help me clear this debt and get my life as close to back on track as I can. Every dollar helps, and if you’re in a position where you can pitch in more I would be forever grateful. If you can’t afford to give me your money (which I completely understand and is totally okay I love you anyway) please share this post with as many people as you can. I’m kind of drawing at straws here. Thank you so much for all your support and help. It honestly means so much to me. I will keep you updated as much as I can.
You guys thank you so much for everything so many of you have reached out and offered me your money and I’m honestly speechless just. Thank you so much it honestly is amazing that for the one horrible person who decided to try and ruin my life there are so many wonderful people who want to work together to fix it. Please keep sharing and donating what you can. Thank you so so so much!!
Just an experiment. Reblog if you actually give a fuck about male victims of domestic violence and rape.
Of fucking course
What sick bastard doesn’t
"You’d be surprised", said Xaldien, who just lost four followers and received a lovely "men can’t be raped" anon shortly after reblogging this the first time.
EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.
Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.
The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.
