Text (would be legible on actual shirt):
You have no problem with the gender wage gap. But you hate having to pay for dates.
You insist that it’s a scientifically proven fact that men are stronger than women. But you complain about society believing that it’s worse for a man to hit a woman than for a woman to hit a man.
You believe that the age of consent is unfair and that there’s nothing wrong with having sex with teenage girls. But when you find out that a teenage girl enjoys sex, you believe she’s the biggest slut in the world.
You hate when a woman automatically assumes that a man is a douchebag before getting to know him. But when you like a woman who likes another man, you assume he’s a douchebag just because he’s not you.
You believe that if women want equality, they should be drafted into the military. But you also believe that the military is not a place for women.
You hate when women assume that men are like wild animals. But you believe that a woman who doesn’t cover up and make herself invisible to men is just like someone wearing a meat suit around wild animals.
You hate the fact that men are bullied for not conforming to their male gender roles. But when you find out that a man disagrees with your beliefs about women’s rights, your immediate response is to try to emasculate him by comparing him to a woman as an insult.
You hate when women assume that there are no nice guys. But you call yourself a nice guy and act like it’s a rare quality that should cause women to be all over you.
You hate when women assume that men just want to get laid. But when you find out that a man is a feminist, you assume that he’s just doing it to get laid.
You hate when women make generalizations about all men. But when a woman calls you out for being sexist, you claim that all men think like you.
You insist that women should be responsible for protecting themselves from being raped. But when they follow the one piece of advice that actually works, which is being aware of red flags, you complain about them assuming that all men are rapists.
This is too fantastic.
mental illness is the worst for a lot of reasons but what’s really killing me right now is that today was one of the best days i’ve had in a long time—i took an easy test, watched a show i enjoy, and spent the afternoon hiking around in really pretty scenery with one of my best friends, then we…
At the end good days I have this question of, “Why do I feel so overwhelmed? I had a good day! I wanted to get up and do things earlier, so why did nothing get done except eating and taking care of Perry? I might as well not bother.”
I empathize, but I don’t know what to do about it.
You want weird tv episodes that you’ve never seen before? It’s probably been on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. You want a musical episode? Buffy. An episode with no talking at all? Buffy. A good laugh about a demon-hunting dummy? Buffy. What about one where hyena ghosts posses high school students and then go eat their principle? Guess who. Just go watch Buffy you piece of shit.
nothing pisses me off more than a dude who i don’t find attractive, who i wouldn’t even fuck, who isn’t even on my radar to come at me sideways with some advice to tell me how to be more attractive to his standards
you look like a dirty wash rag after cleaning a pot full of pork chop grease like
who gave you the right?
I’m gonna say no to the commentary for two reasons off the top of my head. 1. In many positions going for the outside will put you in the line of fire. It is often not as simple as ducking your head down. People don’t usually stand with their arm fully extended aiming at your face. Consider if in this gif the aggressor was pointing the gun at the guy’s lower left side; moving to the outside would require he move his entire pelvis past the line of fire. If someone puts a gun to your back you shouldn’t turn and look to see which way to go outside the arm, you should immediately turn in the direction of least resistance so as to get your heart out of the line of fire. 2. Not everyone is built like the man in this gif. I’m a 5’2” woman, I could never grab a fully grown man’s arm and wrench him down with one hand. In this same position I would throw my left arm up beneath the aggressor’s arm while ducking down and right, grab the wrist AND GUN from the inside with my left hand and behind his wrist with my right, swing underneath his outstretched arm and throw him in an arm bar (actually a triple break of the wrist, elbow, and shoulder) and disarm him. Most people are usually stronger pulling inward than backward, which is how he would have to free his twisted arm and then I would have his face and ribs in front of me to kick/knee. My point is that you have to work with your own body and against your aggressor’s. Know thyself! My lifelong training has taught me this: 1. Get out of the line of fire. 2. Control the weapon. 3. Disarm the weapon. Maybe eventually I will do some visuals. *edit* PS NEVER RELY SOLELY ON SELF DEFENSE TIPS FROM THE INTERNET! The master of my ryu is a 10th degree black belt who has also taught women’s self defense courses and police courses on the side for as long as I’ve been alive. I trust his variety of knowledge over what I assume is strictly Army training. You need real practice and experience to use self defense techniques. You never know how you will react to a situation until you are faced with it. I hope no one ever has to use these techniques, but practice ahead of time is what would save your life.
Take note: this is how to properly disarm someone. Always go to the outside of the arm, not the inside.
PEOPLE OF TUMBLR-
This is Saber. He’s an 11-month-old rednose Pit Bull with one blue eye and one brown eye. He is a wonderful dog who will cuddle with you and lick your face and sleep on your bed.
And he needs a home.
My roommate and I have been keeping him in our dorm on and off for about a month. My roommate saved him from a shelter at her home in California, where he had pneumonia and would have died had she not helped him. She moved down to Tampa Bay, and when she was admitted to our school, she was told she was only allowed to keep one of her two dogs in the dorm with her. So she gave Saber to a friend.
That friend started beating him.
When the now former friend didn’t want him anymore, a guy who answered a Craigslist ad offered to take him. Only a day after he took Saber in, she got a call from him saying that Saber had chewed up and destroyed a lot of his stuff (there’s still no actual evidence to suggest that he did), and that either she came to get him, and brought money to pay for the ‘damages’, or Saber was going to be dropped at the shelter, where his breed would most likely get him euthanized.
I came with her the night she went to that man’s house. He insisted that we give him $500 or we wouldn’t get him back; essentially, Saber was being held hostage. We watched him throw Saber’s food in the trash can. We had to call the police to get him back to us.
Saber spent three weeks living in our dorm room; and we were lucky that they didn’t find out. Our college’s pet policy forbids more than one pet per student, and we both already have dogs. They also forbid Pit Bulls for insurance reasons (ugh). But my roommate found him a home with a nice couple.
A week later, she got a call, saying that the couple had been arrested (yes really!). The day before, Saber had been neutered, and was not getting the proper pain meds and care he needed. He came back to us that night, much thinner than he’d left.
Saber is living in our dorm room again, and we know it’s only a matter of time before the pet council discovers him. We don’t know what punishment could ensue from that- my roommate could be forbidden from keeping any pets, or both of us could be fined. We know one thing- if the pet council discovers him, we’ll be forced to ‘get rid of him’, which may force us to put him in a shelter, which we really, really don’t want to do. We love him, but it’s not in his- or our- best interest to keep him.
We’ve called just about every animal rescue in the area- a lot of no-kill shelters won’t take Pit Bulls because they’re so much harder to adopt, and many other no-kill shelters, rescues, fosters, etc, are just full, or don’t take owner surrenders. We’re running out of options.
So, Tumblr, we need your help. If you’d like this really amazing and sweet dog to be yours, or if you’re part of a rescue organization that can take him, please send me an ask or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll go forward from there.
Even if you can’t take him for whatever reason (which is okay), please, if you’re seeing this message, please reblog this. We need as many people as possible to see this message, so that he can find the home he’s desperate for.
Thanks for reading.
I don’t want to go to college but I also don’t want to NOT go to college
What I really want is to stop existing but you can’t do that without dying and I don’t want to die either
This is the most accurate post I have ever seen
Q:did they drug test you a second time when you moved to paint?
No. Shit, son, who is this from work?
Dear friends and strangers, I have a request.
A few years ago I had a wonderful clutch wallet from Target that was stolen from my backpack. After it was stolen I tried to buy a new one but Merona had seemingly discontinued that color. It was the best wallet I’ve ever had and years later I still miss it.
It was like the ones below, but it was this same teal in a flower (leafy?) print.
Aubrey also knows what it looks like.
If someone could just find where I could buy this wallet that would be the best present ever. Not even buying it. Just finding it for me to buy.
Do your magic things, internet.
1. I have marathoned all of Dollhouse in the last 4 days.
2. I have christmas music stuck in my head and I swear to Ares if I wake up and it’s still there I will find a small village of elves to pillage.
Tumblr makes me want kittens and that is not ok.
Q:I think it would be a bad idea because he has kids just a few years younger than me. That must come with a lot of emotional baggage, right? Is it possible to still do no-strings-attached with someone who has such a longer history than me? I think he would be respectful if I decided against it, but I know we're both only in it for the "fun".
It is completely possible to do no strings attached that way. For some people it may even be easier because with a larger gap there might be less sync between personalities.
Kids can create baggage but if you’re in it for the fun that baggage should not present itself, and if it does you always have the option to stop your relationship whenever you see fit.
Ultimately you are the best judge of whether or not you can have a physical relationship without attaching emotions to it. If you can do that, enjoy your string-less sex life (with the knowledge that you may have to cut some strings of his in the future).
I hope you go have some fun! Be safe!
Q:I saw your post about age and how when people ask you about it, you can tell they're just trying to fuck you. And a guy asked me that on a date the other night and like I'm 19 and everything but he's pushing 35 and I don't know what I should do. I'd deeeefiitely be down sleeping with him but I'm sure it's a bad idea. What do you think?
Well for starters there’s nothing inherently wrong with dating or sleeping with someone who is much older than you.
Why exactly are you sure it’s a bad idea?
I would advise caution and more thought if it’s because:
- He’s in a position of power over you.
- You aren’t sure he would be respectful of a “no” if you were uncomfortable and wanted to stop/slow down.
- You’re worried about one or both of you becoming emotional/not reciprocating emotions.
If you think that you both would be respectful of boundaries and you’d enjoy it, then get it, friend! Mutually enjoyable sexy times with(out) strings are great! Just make sure you state your intentions clearly upfront so no one gets hurt.
Feel free to send me more info if that advice wasn’t good enough.
