Thank you for being alive today. Thank you for continuing to try. Thank you for breathing the same air I do, and I hope you have wonderful dreams when you sleep because you deserve them.
Let’s try to hit 25k by Christmas, because holy shit the holidays are so stressful for everyone ever.
I will be writing a sociological research paper about the effects of the lyrics in Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines.
Please reblog this if you are a female who finds the lyrics of this song offensive or upsetting.
The equal post for men can be found here.
"I’ll give you something big enough to tear your ass in two" is probably the most horrific line I’ve ever heard so, yeah.
I reblog this every time it comes up on my dashboard, not because it is a “rule” but because every time I see it the love and sincerity on her face hit me all over again and I think everyone deserves to see that.
And THIS is why I adore Catherine Tate. She’s loud and brash but in quieter moments… her soul comes shining through and it makes everything about her so much more beautiful.
Going to run an experiment. This post will have 0 tags. I want to see how many people it can reach just through the dash alone. Reblog when you see please :)
There are … so many reblogs …
yes reblog :D
This post is strangely inspiring.
EVERYONE, ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE NEEDS TO WATCH THIS.
See, what you need to understand is that “Not all guys like that” is never going to work. Because you’re answering an entirely different conversation than what women are actually saying.
You think women are saying “Every man is a predator and a danger to me.” And you’re replying, “But I’m not like that.”
But women aren’t saying that. They’re saying “There are too many situations where women have to worry about their safety,” and you’re saying “That’s not important.” They’re saying “Women are constantly told it’s their fault if something bad happens,” and you’re saying “Don’t worry about it.” They’re saying “Too often, women find their trust violated by men,” and you’re saying “But you should trust me!”
They’re saying “So many men have decided that what they want is more important than anything about a woman.” And you’re replying “I’m exactly like that.”
I NEED YOUR GUYS’ HELP
So, as you can see in the photo above, I have very long, thick, and, in my friend’s/peers opinions, beautiful hair. However, I want to cut all of it off. Like, a boy cut. Why? I want to give it to a little girl somewhere who has cancer, and would like a wig, so she doesn’t feel self-conscious going to school everyday with little to no hair. My brother struggled with this while he was going through chemotherapy, and it saddened me. He has since passed on, and I want to cut it as a living memory. However, my parents won’t let me, saying it’s “unladylike”. So, here’s where you guys come in. If you guys could Like/Reblog this photo in support of me doing this, I could show it to my parents, and I might just be able to convince them to let me do it. So come on, help a friend out please. Do it for the cause
only 687 notes tumblr? help a sister out.
this is so fucking cute
Unlady like? What the hell, you’re doing something really nice for someone else, and it just might make their day, or even week. Plus short hair still looks really nice even on girls.
Come on, pixie cuts rock socks.
please join me in this.
put a candle for cory on your blog. lets light tumblr up with candlelight.
How many will be brave enough to return when they feel [the Dark Mark on their arms turn black]? And how many will be foolish enough to stay away?

I just want to draw attention to this scene from last week’s episode.
On the table there are two chessboards (apologies that you can’t see one of the boards in this cap), and a game of peg solitaire.
The gameboard for the solitaire has been left, as far as I can tell, in the following position:
Correct me if I’m wrong on this one, but I’m pretty certain that’s an unwinnable board. Peg solitaire is a one-person game. Somebody was playing against themselves, and they were going to lose. But the board hasn’t been left in a finished position. There are still moves that can be made, even if they seem pointless given circumstance. The player gave up because they felt it was pointless to keep fighting.
Oh. Who does that sound like?
But the chessboard is the more interesting one here. I didn’t catch this for a long while.
Chess is often used as a war metaphor. I don’t know for sure which sides were supposed to be represented here. I would hazard a vague guess at humans against demons, but I’m open to suggestions. We haven’t really had a clear S8 villain yet, so it’s more of a generalised war.
But here. Here’s the interesting part. The game is being played between the clear glass and the frosted glass pieces. But there’s another piece on the board. See it?
It’s a piece from the other chessboard. It’s moved to a different game. Because of the position of the pieces, this little wooden pawn here has to be playing on behalf of the frosted glass side.
I apologise that this next one isn’t very clear. Squint with me here.
That big frosted piece near the pawn is the frosted king. He’s halfway out onto the board. In contrast, the clear king is hidden away in the corner. It’s difficult to see, but I think they might have been castled earlier in the game.
The king is the lynchpin of the game. You don’t lead your king into the centre of battle unless you have a very reckless game plan. Or possibly no game plan at all.
Who does that sound like?
Then we have the queen. Arguably the most powerful piece in any game. Usually a key player in the fight. And yet:
The queen is in her starting position. She may have fought, but she is no longer fighting. She has retreated back to the start. Like the solitaire player, she has given up. Despite her ability to fight, she does not.
Oh. Wait. That’s familiar, too.
So we have a reckless king leading the battle; a powerful queen reluctant to fight, and a pawn who was supposed to be fighting on a different chessboard altogether.
I present to you: Team Free Will, S8.
(You could also argue that the pawn is Benny, crossing over from the other chessboard (Purgatory), but given he hasn’t really fought alongside the Winchesters, I personally discarded that theory.)
THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people. —madlori
Modeled on this post. This quote needed a gifset that featured a more diverse group women. Because my takeaway from Lori’s marvelous answer (seriously, go read all of it) is that representation fucking matters and that great female characters do not—and should not—fit into the same cookie cutter mold. Because actual women are not one size fits all. And the irony of having that message cross my dash repeatedly with exclusively young, white, straight, cis women who match a prescriptive definition of beauty was getting to me.
