“Your mother did not raise you with a wolf in your chest so you could howl over losing a man.”

 (via pluiedem)

Does no one get that this quote is shaming women who are legit sad when they lose a partner? Why would you ever think it’s okay to tell someone their grief isn’t feminist enough or whatever?

ask children before you touch them

celibatesprites:

  • ask children before you hug them
  • ask children before you pick them up
  • if moving a child is unavoidable for their safety, at least warn them first and explain afterwards
  • this applies to disabled children
  • this applies to non- or pre-verbal children, since words are not the only kind of consent or language
  • treat a child as you wish people had treated you

children are people. they will remember you violating their boundaries for their whole lives and it will irreparably damage how they view their worth as people.

don’t teach your kids that they should unquestioningly accept touch no matter what. teach them they deserve respect.

This reminds me. Teachers in preschools were more likely to touch little girls without explanation due to their clothing. It’s easier to, for example, check a dirty diaper, on a girl who is wearing a skirt or dress than on a boy or girl who is not. When you are dealing with children, even small children, you should consider more than your own sense of practicality. Handling some children differently than you handle others can affect their perception of themselves vs. their peers.

New device allows brain to bypass spinal cord, move paralyzed limbs

For the first time ever, a paralyzed man can move his fingers and hand with his own thoughts thanks to a new device. A 23-year-old quadriplegic is the first patient to use Neurobridge, an electronic neural bypass for spinal cord injuries that reconnects the brain directly to muscles, allowing voluntary and functional control of a paralyzed limb.

“What I love about the song and video is that it isn’t just Nicki being sexy. It’s a flat out display of her power over men. Nicki actively disregards the male gaze in the video. Between the lyrics, the tongue in cheek mishandling of the banana and literally slapping Drake’s hand away when he tries to touch her ass, it’s a song and video about her enjoying her own body and sexuality, and inviting other “fat ass bitches” to do the same. The assertion that because she looks traditionally “sexy” she is “desperate for male attention” doesn’t hold any water when you approach it critically. Just because something happens to be appealing to straight men doesn’t mean that straight men are the intended audience. It’s an incredibly heteronormative assumption. Would we assume that femme lesbians are vying for male attention because they prefer to present as traditionally feminine?” BattyMamzelle: Nicki Minaj’s #Anaconda And Reclaiming “Black Girl Sexy” (via genderglitched)

Zoolander: the gift that keeps giving.

This is everything I have ever wanted from the internet

All I can think about now is how Bucky’s last mission before CA:TWS required that he go to a bunch of gross music industry parties undercover as a male model and his dead-eyed shrug in response to all attempts at conversation made him the #1 most popular hipster in the room no matter where he ended up. 

"Do you like this band?"

[shrug]

"Sighhhhhhhhh"

"So like, do you do your own hair?"

[silence intensifies]

I accept this. And that Mugatu’s evil brainwashing scheme thing was a Hydra op.
