This year, 14 million young girls will be married against their will and nearly 1 million girls will be sold into slavery. To commemorate International Women’s Day on March 8, the women’s rights organization Catapult demonstrates that these aren’t stats but human lives.
There was a study done where they got a man to harass a woman in the park
and then they did it the other way around.
Several stopped the man but they let the woman slap and scream
and yank his hair.
They asked a professional who concluded that compared to men,
women aren’t seen as enough to be a threat.
My friend’s principal from three years ago
took his kids and ran
because he kept showing up to work
with bruises put there weekly by his loving wife
and everyone told him to take it like a man.
Last week I listened as a guy laughed off the idea
that a woman could violate him
and I thought of an interview on a news show
where they showed a boy who flinched inwards
every time a girl touched him
because of the exact reason the guy laughed off.
When compared to men,
Women aren’t seen as a threat
so men feel free to take whatever they like.
Women aren’t seen as a threat
so no one takes men seriously
when a woman
breaks them open.
“I fall in love with human beings based on who they are,” she tells the magazine, “not based on what they do or what sex they are.”
DID SHAILENE JUST SAY WHAT WE ALL WANTED TO HEAR? SHE IS LIKE THE FIRST ACTRESS WHO SAYS IT LIKE THAT. SHE DIDNT SAY SHE WAS GAY BUT SHE IS JUST LIKE ALL OF US. WE ALWAYS WANTED PEOPLE TO SAY THAT WE FALL IN LOVE WITH PEOPLE AND NOT WITH A GENDER AND FINALLY SOMEONE SAID IT. YOU GO SHAILENE WOODLEY.
I don’t know who she is, but I agree.
She plays the main character in two of this year’s most anticipated movies: ‘Divergent’ and ‘The Fault in our Stars’. You should check them out, they’re both amazing :D
Don’t let the media warp your perception of beauty. Beauty is pizza.
If you see something like this, DO NOT CALL AN EXTERMINATOR!
Call a beekeeper, they can relocate the hive instead of killing them. Bees are dying at an alarming rate, please do not contribute to that! They are so important for our ecosystem!
yo fuck this i aint gonna call no beekeeper i’m moving before i’m dead
I’m going to call an exterminator so the exterminator can kill them. I’ll be able to sleep at night knowing that there are less bees in the world.
No bees = no food.
No food = no life.
Congratulations on destroying the world.
Because you seem to not understand that bees pollinate flowers and literally bees are the reason we have food.
Did you guys even watch bee movie
you really really must call a bee keeper!
My family’s house had it’s entire attic taken over by bees one year. They slowly started appearing in the house, and then they were everywhere. We called a bee keeper, and he removed what he said was the largest domestic honeycomb/bee nest he’d ever seen. I was so terrified I’d gone to stay with a friend. My folks called me to meet the bee keeper, and he led me on the most magical journey through the house. He explained the bees were harmless if you move calmly through them and don’t swat at or harass them. He was only stung once because he accidentally put his hand down and smooshed one. The bees landed on me, walked a bit, then buzzed away. All honey combs and bees were safely removed and relocated. Call a bee keeper, they are awesome!
To whoever made this you are a fucking genius my friend
who picked this stock photo.
Without further ado, the completed short.
Two boys cross their societal boundaries and fall in love. In time, they change each other, and eventually, their divided world.

DUUUUUUDE YOU GUYS SHOULD ALL WATCH THIS
so i didn’t read the comments before watching it and since i knew it was going to be gay since i saw it on a lgbt-themed tumblr, i thought they were lesbians because the fish sounded like a girl and i like to think you can think of them as any gender pair you want, which is great (:
You’re absolutely right!
They’re “officially” boys, since that’s the way they were constructed as characters, but we made a point of giving them as few telling gender characteristics as we could. It’s been really interesting to hear the conclusions people draw about their genders when they aren’t told off the bat.
The most common assumption seems to be that Bird is a man and Fish is a woman… though I personally think that Fish is a little more masculine. ;)
Anyway, don’t mind me, it’s just exciting to see that someone picked up on this. Rock on, friend.
Rebloging these lovely gay babaies again.
Anyone who hasn’t seen birdmeo and fishliet needs to do it right now.

Photographer Marianne Kjølner snapped this pair of photographs of a bizarre tree in Denmark. Of the photo she says: “This old pink house is situated at the old dunes, a few hundred meters from the west coast, a very windy place were there isn’t much that can grow. So the tree can only grow where it has shelter.”
“This is the chemical formula for love:
dopamine, seratonin, oxytocin.
It can be easily manufactured in a lab, but overdosing on any of them can cause schizophrenia, extreme paranoia, and insanity.
Let that sink in.”
