For once just enjoy the ride
All the eyes
I can find inviting
All the boys
I can find attractive

You look fine
There's nothing to worry
Take your time
'Cause baby there's no hurry

For once just enjoy the ride

videos of the brutality in ferguson are being wiped; here’s how to back them up


safari (mac):

find and install ‘ClickToPlugin’ - set it up and most videos will be converted to html5, allowing you to simply right click and download them.

firefox (all platforms):

there are a huuuuge amount of options for this. cursory search and test found easy video downloader, which is a bit obnoxious and tries to get you to use their search, but it works

chrome (all platforms):

try this technique. unfortunately, since chrome is owned by google, their plugin db doesn’t allow any ‘youtube downloader’ type plugin; good luck


download in mp4 if you can; flv and 3g formats are more of a pain to deal with. definition (360p, 720p, …) doesn’t really matter but get the higher one if you’re unsure.

i’m not an expert at this so if you have more experience and can add something useful (especially a working chrome plugin) please do

You can download videos from Youtube with Chrome using this script. It’s easy and it lets you choose the quality of the video.

We went over this in Semantics
I have been perpetually angry ever since

no double standards there, nope, no blatant misogyny/woman shaming here, nuh uh, none at all.

The fact is, a 14-year-old girl may be capable of agreeing to sex with a 49-year-old man, but she doesn’t have the emotional and mental maturity to consent. I was 25 before I realized that every man I’d slept with as a teenager was a pedophile. It seemed to me that since I’d courted the attention, that I was fully culpable. What teenager believes she is not mentally or emotionally capable of full consent? I thought I was an adult, although when I look at the picture of myself from the time period above, I see a child.

I thought I was the exception for these men, the girl so precocious and advanced that it superseded social norms. I thought that I was “older than my chronological age.”

It never occurred to me as a young sexually active teen that the adult men I had relationships with may have been manipulating me, that they had designs and motives I couldn’t see from my limited child’s perspective.

Everyone should read this article if they haven’t already. The anecdotes are upsetting and carry major TW (pedophilia, graphic depictions of sex), but the message is just so on point.

❝  Gaza was bombarded with 273 airstrikes yesterday (8th July). That’s an average of 11 an hour. Gaza is about 25 miles long and 4 miles wide, with a population of 1.7 million crammed into that tiny space. It is under Israeli occupation and Israeli siege. Hospitals estimate they will run out of resources to treat the wounded in about two days. Electricity is intermittent. Gaza has no army, air force or navy. Israel is the fourth largest military power in the world. Resistance to occupation is allowed under international law. Israel’s occupation, siege and collective punishment of Gaza is not. ❞


I feel like you should all watch this. Just persevere for a minute or so.

And now I’m crying “like a girl”



These Women Are About To Tell You Some Things That Are Absolutely None Of Your Business

Holy shit women on fire. This video gave me chills. If you do nothing at all today - watch this!

This is fucking brilliant

Hey, everyone! Too often, disability gets ignored, and disabled characters are too often left unsung. This July, we want to celebrate disability in fandom!


July 1 - July 31


Any fanwork is welcome, whether it’s meta, fanfic, graphics, playlists, reclists, videos etc. Anything goes!  

We do ask that you prioritize canonically disabled characters first, but disabled interpretations are always welcome!


  • Tag your work with #disabilityfest so we and other people can find your post celebrating disability!
  • Reblog this post so people know about #disabilityfest!


I felt so angry at the UCSB massacre (an article about this incident and a script of his video’s speech) and the sexism we’re blind to everyday so I drew about my opinions on sexism to channel my rage.

I’m very happy the #YesAllWomen tag is going strong on U.S. Twitter right now. :D



the problem, as i see it:

contrary to popular belief, feminism is not a movement against men, it is a movement for women.

and contrary to popular belief, men’s rights activism is not a movement formen, it is a movement against women.


Perfect summary.

When straight men are like “but if I share a locker room with a gay guy he might look at me!”

Okay leaving aside the fact that gay doesn’t mean attracted to you

And gay doesn’t mean “lacking in any sort of human decency or inability to prevent staring”





almost like the idea that people might view you as a sex object without your express consent is hella uncomfortable or something

Imagine that.

I always say homophobia is men’s fear of being treated like they treat women.


Q: Girls are discouraged? That sounds so 1970s.

A: There was a 2001 study that showed in fourth grade, 68% of boys and 66% of girls like science. Starting in sixth, seventh and eighth grade, we lose girls and boys, but we lose more girls and for different reasons: lingering stereotypes, societal pressures. It’s well known that many girls have a tendency to dumb down when they’re in middle school. Just last week, I was talking to senior executives, and a woman told me that she was the best biology student in high school and had the highest exam scores. At the end of the semester, a teacher told her: “I’m sorry, but I’m going to have to give the award in biology to a boy, because it’s more important to him.” Almost every time that I give a speech or meet with a group of women, I’ll hear such stories.

Q: Boys earn 70% of the D’s and F’s in school and account for 80% of dropouts. Shouldn’t we fear more for their future?

A: It’s a big problem. Women earn the majority of undergraduate degrees in the U.S. and last year earned more Ph.D.s than men. But keeping girls in the science and math pipeline is a separate problem with different causes. It’s important we address both. You don’t stop research on breast cancer just because heart disease is also deadly. You work on both.

Q: Suppose you were an executive of a corporation that needs engineers. You meet a girl in high school. She scored in the 99th percentile in math on her SATs, yet says she wants to major in psychology or go to law school, because those careers sound more interesting. What do you tell her?

A: I’d introduce her to the coolest female engineer in the company. Girls tend to have a stereotype of engineers being 65-year-old guys who wear lab coats and pocket protectors and look like Einstein. Try to make it personal to them and show them some of the cool things that they can do in engineering.

Q: Let’s talk Lawrence Summers. The Harvard president recently resigned after giving a controversial speech a year ago suggesting that men might simply be predisposed to be better at math and science. Is there at least a grain of truth in what he said?

A: (Laughs). Suppose you came across a woman lying on the street with an elephant sitting on her chest. You notice she is short of breath. Shortness of breath can be a symptom of heart problems. In her case, the much more likely cause is the elephant on her chest.

For a long time, society put obstacles in the way of women who wanted to enter the sciences. That is the elephant. Until the playing field has been leveled and lingering stereotypes are gone, you can’t even ask the question.

Q: I will anyway. There are many obvious biological differences between men and women. This can’t be one?

A: There are obvious differences, but until you eliminate the more obvious cause, it’s difficult to get at the question scientifically. Look at law, medicine and business. In 1970 — that’s not ancient history — law school was 5% female, med school was 8% and business school was 4%. You could have taken a look at those numbers and concluded that women don’t make good lawyers or doctors. The statistics might have supported you. But today, all of those fields are about 50-50.

Why are some women like “I’m not a feminist I believe men and women should be equal” like ???????? YOU LITERALLY JUST DEFINED FEMINISM???¿?¿?

Does anyone speak latin anymore? No? The actual definition of “feminism” is the supremacy of the female gender. “Masculism” is the supremacy of the male gender. “Gender equality” is the equality for all genders.

I was forced to study Latin for three years at a school run by the kind of onion breathed old men you will inevitably become within the next decade or so and “ism” as a suffix doesn’t mean “supremacy of the” or “supremacy” or anything close to that. It means something more along on the line of, “school of thought” or movement or doctrine.

Feminine is female, which makes “the actual definition of feminism” a, “female movement” or “female doctrine” and because feminism is concerned with bringing the rights of women to a point where they match those of men and gender equality is achieved, this is accurate.

Sucks how you can’t even get your elitist, derailing bullshit right.
