When you audibly gasp because someone made tea with cold water and then microwaved it.

Right? My mom does this, and most of the time she just gets the tap really warm, and then sticks the bag in. *kenan…

You can microwave water until it boils…
I mean, if I’m gonna have tea, I probably want it right now. Because I’m thirsty. The alternative I’m avoiding is a can of Coke. Which I can have as soon as I reach the fridge. So tea needs to hurry its ass up. No time for stovetop heating. That’s like toasting a Pop Tart in a saute pan; a totally unnecessary step. Boiling hot water is boiling hot water. Just don’t make tea with water you zapped for only 24 seconds.

Rape Escape

  • Easy and very effective
  • Requires nothing but your body
  • Includes attack

I don’t mean to impose a personal favour on you guys, but I really would like to ask that everyone who follows me reblog this. 

I don’t think I made it very clear but last month I was sexually assaulted by someone who I thought was my friend (I don’t want to talk about it don’t ask), and it’s… really fucked with my head. 

Had I known this a month ago I would have been able to get away

So, essentially, I’m really pleading with you to reblog this so everyone who follows you doesn’t get stuck in the same position I was with no way out. 

I mean again I don’t want the point of this to be my sob story or whatever but if you could reblog this it would seriously mean a lot

First reblog post that actually saves a life.

This is a life-saving post.

the more you know

yeah don’t think that this can’t happen to you or someone you know if they’re young. my cousin’s wife is 33 and she had a stroke last year

I’ve had a stroke. It happens to people, and the more you know about this kind of stuff, the better.Because it could be important to know.



LIVE SAVING. WOOOAHH. REBLOG REBLOG REBLOG REBLOG REBLOG 

Had a family member almost die of one, so signal boosting because you never know when you could save a life.

Georgian First Grader Beaten and Sexually Assaulted by Male Classmates…School Says Boys Just “Rough Housing”
Valdosta - Three first grade boys kept a female classmate outside after recess by hiding in the woods, pushing her face first into the ground. The victim, whose name is being withheld, has suffered scarring to the right side of her face from broken tree branches and rocks that she was allegedly assaulted with both physically and sexually.
The victim was able to escape the male classmates after fifteen minutes of torture, running into a fifth grade classroom and alerting a teacher of what had happened. The principle of the elementary school said he had a “man to man” talk with the boys and their parents, giving them two days of suspension. He neglected calling the local authorities claiming “it did not seem like a police matter, just simple rough housing gone a little too far”.
The parents of the victim are looking to press charges on the boys for sexual and physical assault, as well as a possible law suit against the school district. District superintendent was not available for comment. 

This is called rape culture you guys. The girl was 7 years old and they called it “rough housing” between boys.

Please boost this post! People NEED to hear about this.

I can’t find any such story in Valdosta area news.http://www.wctv.tv/schools/kidshttp://valdostatoday.com/category/news-2/local/EDIT: OH HAY. The picture is of a girl attacked by a kangaroo. So this story is a fabrication.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0Puy6cB3EABig surprise, dropmycumberbritches has deleted their tumblr.

I think we all need to acknowledge this for a second because Adam made a really good point about this the other day and I haven’t gotten around to bitching about it until now. Everyone has been going on for MONTHS about how ridiculous wrecking ball is. How Miley is nude and posed provocatively and singing a pop-y song. Now, Panic! At The Disco has released a music video of Brendon Urie basically naked, posed provocatively, singing a pop-y song. No one says a god damned thing. Everyone is all hot-and-bothered over Brendon, but pissed at Miley, calling her a slut. (don’t get me wrong, I loved the music video, too. However, I find Miley just as sexy.)

I’m just saying, this is why I need feminism.

I would also like to point out the different meanings of the nudity in either video.

The Panic! At The Disco video is a song Called Girls/Girls/Boys. A song about a girl who is struggling with her sexual identity and [the narrator / singer] is calling her out by telling her he can see through her “having a boyfriend” rouse, because it’s obvious that she also has a girlfriend whom she keeps in secret to protect her “straight” appearance; for fear of judgement. It is also alluded to here that the singer / narrator has an unrequited love for the girl, but is obviously not the gender that she prefers. The nudity in this video appears to represent openness. The lack of secrets or anything to hide. He’s a male, in love with a female who prefers females and will never love him back; and there’s nothing he can do about it to change himself.

The Miley video is for Wrecking Ball. A much more self explanatory song about the raw, hurting, feelings after a break up with a long term relationship. Not any relationship, but, a real relationship with a real person that Miley had publicly just gone through. There was basically a 100% chance that her ex would see that video; and this is where the nudity comes in. Not something sexual, but vulnerability. The two most vulnerable states in the world are being nude (physical judgement, lack of protection) and expressing your emotions (emotional / mental judgement, letting down your guard). The nudity in Miley’s video represents her being completely vulnerable; much like she had been to let her ex into her life for such a long time.

Either way, gender removed from the topic; neither nudity in either video is a sexual nudity. The problem here isn’t just gender discrimination; it’s also oversexualization. If the nudity in the videos was not taken out of context and sexualized; neither of the artists involved would be patronized or glorified in any way other than a genuine critique.

This is why oversexualization is a problem.

Thank you

Uh… the song was written and recorded months in advance of her split from her fiance. When asked why she cried in the video, she said it was because her dog had just died and she was actually the happiest she’d been in a long time, otherwise.

And the director of her video has all of the women in his work stripped naked. In fact he’s pretty famous for sexually harassing and assaulting the models he works with. She licked a fucking hammer at his instruction. There’s no symbolism there, that’s run of the mill draw-attention-to-her-mouth-with-lollipops-esque sexualization.

If we’re adding context, let’s not leave out the stuff that doesn’t neatly fit into your interpretation. I’m not arguing Miley is bad or sexist. I’m arguing that giving any kind of deeper meaning to the nudity in a Terry Richardson project is naive. He’s just a predator. It’s not art. Stop legitimizing his horrifying choices.

  • (I work the floor at an independently-owned menswear store. The owner, my boss, spends a lot of time at the shop, and tries to keep prices as low as possible to help our city’s large homeless population get good job interview clothes. A clearly homeless man is wandering around the store. The other patrons are giving him looks.)
  • 1: “Excuse me, sir?”
  • 2: “Yes, ma’am?”
  • 1: “I think you may want to call security. That… bum over there, he keeps feeling the suits and muttering to himself. I’m just sure he’s planning to steal one.”
  • 2: “Well, ma’am, I think that’s quite unlikely.”
  • 1: “Oh, come on, you know how they are! I mean, I’d keep an eye on him even if he wasn’t homeless!”
  • (The homeless man in question happens to be Hispanic.)
  • 2: “We don’t discriminate here, ma’am.”
  • 1: “Well, I’m sure the owner would want to hear about this!”
  • (I give in and call him over. The customer explains her concerns. As a black man, my boss isn’t happy with her racism, but agrees to talk to the homeless man.)
  • 3: “Excuse me, sir, are you finding what you need?”
  • 4: “Well, not really. I’m hoping for something versatile in a dark or navy wool, but most of the options in my size are cut American style instead of European, which fits me a little better. Not to mention they’re all pinstriped, which I really don’t have the build for, you know?”
  • 3: “I… yes, I understand. I think we may have some options over here, if you’ll follow me. How did you know all that?”
  • 4: “Back before I lost my job, I used to be really into this stuff. I’m not looking for anything fancy, just something I can use to look good for a job interview later today.”
  • (My boss helps him find something he likes, and comes to the counter with him. The suit is priced at $87.)
  • 4: *digging in his pockets* “Hang on, I think I’ve got enough.”
  • 3: *to me* “Take my card. I’m buying it for him.” *to the homeless man* “Here. The suit’s yours, on one condition. After your interview today, you come back and apply for a job here too. Got it?”
  • 4: “I… oh my God, thank you. Thank you so much.”
  • (Two years later, that formerly-homeless man is my manager, and has a little girl with his new wife—the owner’s sister.)

I suggest all females watch this. 

*i suggest all humans watch this.

THIS SHOULD BE REQUIRED WATCHING FOR ALL HUMANS

I’m a 17 year old white guy living in middle class America. I’ve never exactly been a supporter of feminism because that kind of thing has never really affected me personally. I don’t notice it and I don’t care about it. But in nine minutes this video has made what is truly a serious problem extremely apparent. Those “why I need feminism” posts or those slut-shaming or rape culture campaigns never convince me of anything. But this video actually did I think.

tl;dr This video kicks ass, just watch it.

Stop what you’re doing and watch this

I watched this with my mom. This is really great. I love this.

Really powerful video. This is what I should show people who ask why I’m a feminist (as if I need reasons).

THIS IS SO VERY IMPORTANT. And not just for Americans, this is something every single person who consumes media should think about and talk about, especially us fanpeople on tumblr who spend so much time obsessing over a lot of these things. This is so important to me, it should be important to everyone.
