Growth is not a steady, forward, upward progression. It is indeed a switchback trail: three steps forward, two back, one around the bushes, and a few simply standing, before another forward leap. — Dorothy Corkville Briggs (via liberatingreality)




Ever notice how when justifying a child’s misbehavior no one ever says stuff like “girls will be girls” or “she’s a girl”, but the list of things a “young lady” can’t do is almost endless?

You learn from a young age that masculinity comes with freedom; femininity comes with restrictions.

This is legit.

More PSAs need to stop worrying about offending people and get down to the nitty gritty like this. It’s the only way to open so many eyes.


We watched this in my Child Development class. I absolutely love how much awareness it brings to being an example to those around us. Children see.

"This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals—sounds that say listen to this, it is important.” - Gary Provost

Reading this was so satisfying woah

Fucking fuckers

  • me: (out shopping, looking all fly with my Marvel comics tote bag featuring several characters)
  • dude: nice bag.
  • me: thanks. (keeps on shopping)
  • dude: do you even know who all those characters are?
  • me: uh... yeah?
  • dude: ok then, who's that guy? (points at a character on the bag)
  • me:
  • me: wait, are you asking me to prove that I'm enough of a fan enough to carry this bag?
  • dude: (smirks) that's what I thought. He's called the Silver Surfer. I bet you don't even know his real name.
  • me: does it matter? (starts to edge away before I start punching throats)
  • dude: psh, you're not a real fan.
  • me:
  • me: (slowly unsheathing my Wolverine claws)
  • me: how many pairs of chromosomes do humans contain in their cells?
  • dude: uh... what?
  • me: explain the function of cellular mitosis?
  • dude:
  • me: what is the purpose of myelin sheath with regards to the formation of new neural pathways?
  • dude: what are you even talking about?
  • me: oh, well it seemed that you were implying that if I don't know as much about the Marvel universe as you do, then I can't possibly be considered a real fan. This is me implying that because you don't know as much about the human body as I do, you can't possibly be considered a real human being.
  • dude:
  • dude:
  • dude:
  • dude: Um, I... wow. You're right. Have a nice day. (starts to shuffle away)
  • me: his name is Norrin Radd.
  • dude: (looks extremely embarrassed)



Reblog forever. 

THIS. THIS. seriously. I am actually sick and tired of people telling me how good i look because i have lost a lot of weight from being sick for almost a year and not being able to eat. NO THIS IS NOT OKAY. I DONT WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT THIS WAY. I don’t look good. I look sick. Ive lost coloring to my face. I permanently have huge bags under my eyes. I am constantly dizzy/winded because I do not have enough nutrients in my body. I am either always hungry and queasy at the same time and it sucks. My hair is greasy and falling out from not getting protein. so no. I DONT WANT TO BE THIS WAY. and yet my psychiatrist says i need to lose more weight because the number on the scale keeps rising, even though Im sick and miserable. Its probably rising because im bloated from not eating that much/ all the gas in my system. SO STOP. LISTEN TO THIS PICTURE. I was healthy before.
