I want a movie about a little girl, aged like 11-12, going through the struggles of prepubescent girl life, with her entire inner monologue is narrated by Samuel L. Jackson.

Shot of disgruntled adorable little girl.

SLJ: I knew that Susie was a backstabbin’ motherfucker, and if anyone was going to ruin my chances of being Miss Sugar Drop Queen, it was that asshole. 

I didn’t know I needed this in my life until now.

This is never not funny

People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.

Watch the powerful Verizon advertisement to really understand what a little girl hears when you tell her she’s pretty.

This is so important. Girls pay attention. Boys, if you are a brother, father, cousin of a girl, pay attention.

This is CRITICAL

The four attractions:
Aesthetic: An attraction to other people that is not connected to a desire to do anything with them, either sexually or romantically. They simply appreciate their appearance.
Romantic: A feeling that causes people to desire a romantic relationship with a specific other person. (ex partnership (”boyfriend”, “girlfriend”, ect) Romantic attraction is difficult to define and may vary.
Sensual: A desire to do sensual (but not sexual) things with certain people, especially relating to tactile sensuality such as cuddling.
Sexual: A feeling that sexual people get that causes them to desire sexual contact with a specific other person. It is often, but not always, felt along with other forms of attraction.
If one is asexual, they do not experience sexual attraction.

Understanding this distinctions really cleared a lot of things up for me. And often, when I explain this to other people, I see that little lightbulb above their head switch on.

this is great oh man

It is literally cheaper to house homeless people than it is to just leave them on the streets

And instead of trying to match homeless people up with one of the 24 empty homes available for every homeless person

People are literally paying to put in fucking spikes under bridges, in doorways and, yes, on fucking public benches in order to make it harder for homeless people to find a place to sleep.

What a fucked up world we live in.

White academia’s centuries-long obsession with Ancient Egypt stems from the fact that they can’t understand “how” an entire civilization founded & maintained by African peoples is regarded as one of the major building blocks of “Western society & culture” 

But that’s….
