- Dad: Do you mind if instead of eating with you guys, I eat in the living room so I can finish my movie?
- Me: Yeah, sure whatever, its not like I'm only here to visit for 4 days and you never get to see me or anything
- Mom: Yeah, and I plan on dying before you.
Here’s my theory. The Harry Potter trio are actually representations of the other houses. Hermione is Ravenclaw. Ron is Hufflepuff. Harry is Slytheryn. They’re all in Gryffindor because they asked. In fact, everyone in that house could have been in another house if they hadn’t asked to be in Gryffindor. You have be ask to be in Gryffindor because their most defining feature is bravery and anyone can choose to be brave.
I fuck with your theory, marry me.
not modelling just casually getting my ass kicked
Ridiculously Photogenic Karate Dude
I like this.
Just to nitpick a bit: it’s Ridiculously Photogenic *Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Dude
And this picture’s even better when you realize he’s the one doing the ass-kicking. He’s got the other guy in what’s called an omoplata (shoulder lock with his leg.)
I am offended by how perfect he looks IN A FULL ACTION MOVE
I have blurry pics when I’m sitting perfectly still
damn you sir
His name is Clark Gracie. You are all welcome.
A friend posted this on Facebook:
Men outnumber women 4 to 1 in parliament
15.6% of High Court Judges are women
2 women are… murdered each week by a partner or former partner
In the media, women represent just 5% of the editors of national newspapers
13.7% of police chief constables are women
14.2% of university Vice Chancellors are women
Due to low prosecution rates, it’s basically legal to rape a vulnerable woman, especially if she has learning difficulties.
It’s about the way I’ve seen men interrupt women in classes, seminars, conversations and media debates. The way that I see too many vapid female characters in films and TV shows used as accessories to further lionize strong male characters. The way that school girls get cat-called by adult men on their way to get an education. The way that young women are taught to EXPECT unwanted and unreciprocated sexual contact if they go out looking good, drinking and flirting. The way that women can expect their marital status and reproductive intentions to come into question at some point in their career. The way that groups of men laugh at rape and domestic violence jokes without thinking that, statistically, there’s a high chance someone in the room has come into contact with one of those things. The way that women are reluctant to report their rape to the police in case they are shamed or disbelieved. The way that women are insulted, derided, and discounted as “making a fuss over nothing” or labeled the “PC brigade” or “feminazis” when they openly challenge these problems.
It is time to break the silence around sexism, sexual violence and discrimination against women and call it what it is: sexism. Not someone “just having a laugh” not “boys being boys” not “the way things are”. It is sexism and down-playing or ignoring it will not make it go away; in fact, it will reinforce it. Sexism is a deep-rooted inequality that manifests itself very clearly on a micro and macro level, and once you start to see it, you can never stop seeing it.
One of the most common questions feminists get asked is “why is feminism not called gender equalism? or genderism?”. Well, because, although it is about equal rights, treatment and opportunities for all genders, recognising and understanding what this would truly look like or how it would work in practice means putting a focus on and listening to women of ALL colours, classes, sexualities and abilities and putting a focus on their wants, needs and capabilities; it means looking back at the gaps in history where women’s remarkable achievements in politics and literature are not celebrated, it means giving a platform for women to share their lived experience and be heard for once, rather than ignored, talked over or undermined because “they’re getting a bit too worked up about this, it’s not that bad, they should just calm down a bit”.
This is how I feel when I take off my skinny jeans.
