HELLO

The petition to legally recognize non-binary genders expired because it did not reach 100,000 signatures in time.

HERE IS A NEW PETITION. It expires April 20th. DO NOT LET THIS ONE FAIL AS WELL.

Pigmentocracy: Real Talk About Fair Skin (via WNYC)

Last month I worked with the folks at WNYC on a piece about skin lightening. Truthfully, I’ve never had any negative feelings about my skin tone so I had no idea this was such a big business. So for me, this conversation was both sad and incredibly eye opening. Have you ever felt self conscious about your skin tone or considered using lightening products?

some ppl are really angry about these positivity blogs lmao

we can’t have nice things I guess

If your reaction to somebody saying nice things about somebody else is to get mad and start trying to tear it down instead of… saying nice things about the people you like. Like. Maybe you’re part of the problem.

This meme is false. Cashews are a source of tryptophan, which is needed for the body to produce serotonin - but it is in no way a significant a source of serotonin on its own, and even still, it’s not the same thing as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (which is not, as some may falsely believe, simply a pill full of serotonin). The chemical compounds of tryptophan and serotonin are different, not to mention that SSRIs don’t really work that way.
If you share this image, you need to understand that the armchair psychiatry that you learned from a meme could cost someone THEIR LIFE.
Leave science to scientists, and quit it with the religious belief in anything natural because it doesn’t always work. I have a lot of crunchy tendencies, but there’s a point where it stops being reasonable and starts being dangerous and deluded.
If you don’t have depression, and I’m not going to phrase this nicely: shut the fuck up about how other people should treat theirs. It’s not just a matter of being sad, nor is it solely a case of having low serotonin. Doing this is a dangerous game, it’s not your place, and you clearly don’t understand what you’re saying or the potential consequences of your actions. Mental illnesses are just as valid as physical illnesses, and the consequences of poor treatment are just as severe.
Anti-depressants are not always the right or only treatment, but they are frequently lifesaving medications. Cashews are not, and suggesting that they might be safer than a medication that you don’t need or even remotely understand the chemical composition of is reckless and uneducated.

Also, I’d like to point out that a month’s worth supply of SSRI is cheaper than the equivalent supply of cashews. Not only do we have the beautiful example of classic neurotypical jackassery, but we’ve got a great stealth helping of classism, too.
To put it simply: to these people, you’re only worth saving if you’ve got the money.

Some of the other things that are very common in porn is the very stereotypical scenario where a woman says “No” but then she’s somehow forced to do the sex act anyway and at some point she discovers that she really loves it and that’s what she’s dreamed of doing her whole life and that’s extremely common in pornography.

And when you have guys masturbating to something like that, learning about sex from something like that what that’s actually teaching them is that A) Women’s boundaries don’t matter, B) Anything you do to a woman she’s always going to love it…They are watching this stuff, they are masturbating to it, they’re getting these messages and they’re internalizing these messages not just on an intellectual level in terms of ideas but also now physically in their bodies; what they feel.

this wins over other pro-gay commercials because you had no idea he was gay and then you can’t tell which one is his husband

they are showing them as people

not as gays and straights

fuckin love this commercial

can we just talk abotu the fact that the husbands arent even bringing the drinks over theyre just standing there next to the drinks and chatting

fuckin useless husbands

they are showing anyone can be useless. Even gay people


they are saying that it doesn’t matter if you are gay or straight. You can still be a useless person

this post got better

non-binary genders date back to ancient egypt if not earlier and yet people still act like they’re some kind of “tumblr trend” like what else from 2000 bc are you not gonna believe in? roads? beer? locks?

the pyramids are a myth perpetuated by social justice bloggers
