Graffiti I saw on my way home from school 2day hell yes hell yes hell yes
I guess feminism is the radical notion that women are people, but men are inanimate objects/animals.
Oh, and in case any of you need to have it explained why comparing men to M&Ms or puppies is not only dehumanizing, but also also completely unhelpful, here’s the thing. And that thing is called individuality. It means that individual humans are distinct and completely separate from one another, with their own consciousness, experiences, identity, reputation, and discernible personal characteristics. This is unlike M&Ms, which are anonymous, indistinguishable, and have absolutely no cognitive capacity whatsoever. And unlike dogs and other animals that can be conditioned for desired behavior, people are afforded the right to live within a system of rules & laws that inform their actions, with specific individual punishments reserved for specific transgressions.

The source video is very, very worth watching. A few things to point out:
The young woman in the dark coat is continually trying to escape from the man. She has spoken to him, she’s pulled away, she’s even tried to walk away before he dragged her back. She hit him as a last resort but it didn’t do anything, he just got more aggressive.
The girl in the white jacket was walking by, recognized that a bad situation was happening, stopped, and intervened. At 0:28 she calls the man out, and continues to call him out until he breaks off attacking the young woman in the dark coat and turns his aggression on her. At which point she defends herself—and then she escorts the young woman in the dark coat safely away.
This is a hero.
Bringing this back.
The woman in the white jacket is Olga Ivanova, taekwondo world champion. That kick must have hurt like hell.
Tae Kwon Do Champion. You fucked up, bro.
I want to reclaim Dad Culture on tumblr. I want there to be a counterpoint to the creepy Tumblr Daddies. I want people in ill-fitting polos making gifs with captions like “how was your day, sport?” and “that lawn’s not gonna mow itself!” I wanna see people cooking BBQs over skype, RPing detailed discussions about which power drill to buy. We can’t let those sweaty teens in baggy suits win

New research published in the American Journal of Psychiatrysuggests that schizophrenia is not a single disease, but rather a group of eight genetically distinct disorders, each of them with its own set of symptoms. The finding could result in improved diagnosis and treatment, while also shedding light on how genes work together to cause complex disorders.
