This drives me mad. I used to work in a bookstore, and was talking to my coworker and he just yelled out “stop flirting with me!” at this ridiculous volume and it was humiliating because
1. I wasn’t
2. I got in trouble for acting unprofessional
3. He embarrassed me in front of a line of people
4. And he only stopped insisting that I was flirting when my boyfriend (who is now my husband) said, “dude, trust me, she’s not flirting with you” to him
That asshole respected my BOYFRIEND saying I wasn’t flirting more than he respected me saying it and I was the one who was talking! The whole scene got me in trouble at work. And the most ridiculous part is we were talking about a fucking book. In a bookstore.
One time, my ex boyfriend had a crush on some girl, and said that he thought he might have “a chance” with her.
When I asked him what made him think that, he said “Well, she talks to me.”
And this is why it is so difficult to be a girl and be friends with men who are attracted to women.
Can we also add that this is why a lot of women do the resting bitch face when out in public. Cause dudes swear a glance or a smile is flirting.
A few days ago I saw a kid who i’ve reported TWICE at work for sexual harassment, I smiled at him, because I was at work, and that’s what I do. He goes “I’ve noticed every time I see you, you get a small smile. Almost like you’re happy to see me.” THE SAME DAY THAT MANAGEMENT TALKED TO HIM ABOUT HARASSING ME, HE SAID THIS SHIT. I replied, “I smile at everyone. You’re not that special.”
since so many people are a fan of my insults, i’ve made a curse-free insult generator at the request of a very enthusiastic anon
here u go, bud

When Brazilian graphic designer Carol Rossetti began posting colorful illustrations of women and their stories to Facebook, she had no idea how popular they would become.
Thousands of shares throughout the world later, the appeal of Rosetti’s work is clear. Much like the street art phenomenon Stop Telling Women To Smile, Rossetti’s empowering images are the kind you want to post on every street corner, as both a reminder and affirmation of women’s bodily autonomy.
"It has always bothered me, the world’s attempts to control women’s bodies, behavior and identities," Rossetti told Mic via email. "It’s a kind of oppression so deeply entangled in our culture that most people don’t even see it’s there, and how cruel it can be."
Rossetti’s illustrations touch upon an impressive range of intersectional topics, including LGBTQ identity, body image, ageism, racism, sexism and ableism. Some characters are based on the experiences of friends or her own life, while others draw inspiration from the stories many women have shared across the Internet.
"I see those situations I portray every day," she wrote. "I lived some of them myself."
Despite quickly garnering thousands of enthusiastic comments and shares on Facebook, the project started as something personal — so personal, in fact, that Rossetti is still figuring out what to call it. For now, the images reside in albums simply titled “WOMEN in english!" or "Mujeres en español!" which is fitting: Rossetti’s illustrations encompass a vast set of experiences that together create a powerful picture of both women’s identity and oppression.
One of the most interesting aspects of the project is the way it has struck such a global chord. Rossetti originally wrote the text of the illustrations in Portuguese, and then worked with an Australian woman to translate them to English. A group of Israeli feminists also took it upon themselves to create versions of the illustrations in Hebrew. Now, more people have reached out to Rossetti through Facebook and offered to translate her work into even more languages. Next on the docket? Spanish, Russian, German and Lithuanian.
It’s an inspiring show of global solidarity, but the message of Rossetti’s art is clear in any language. Above all, her images celebrate being true to oneself, respecting others and questioning what society tells us is acceptable or beautiful.
"I can’t change the world by myself," Rossetti said. "But I’d love to know that my work made people review their privileges and be more open to understanding and respecting one another."”

The entire previous two movies were built around the central premise of the war between Autobots and Decepticons. A war
between equals, a stalemate that lasted eons before they finally found earth.
But as we watch Dark Side Moon, an inescapable fact dawns upon an observant viewer. There is no war. The war
is over. The Autobots lost.
The entire central conceit of the trilogy, the very first thing we hear established at the very beginning of the first movie, is all a
lie spun by Optimus, unwilling to admit defeat even as it stared him straight in the face. Why do we see working class
Decepticons, but no Autobot civilians, and why can the Autobots be counted on two hands while the Decepticons have
millions of grunts? Because there are no more Autobot civilians, they have been eradicated. Why was Optimus so obsessed
with destroying the Allspark instead of taking it so he could revive Cybertron instead of Megatron? Because Cybertron belongs
to the Decepticons now. And in fact, remember how MilkyMoor noted that Optimus doesn’t even consider defeating the
Decepticons as a way to end the war instead of destroying the one thing that could save their species? That’s because there
was no hope of him being able to defeat them, because it would mean defeating the entire transformer species. All he could
do was destroy the thing that could keep them alive and let entropy do the rest of the work.
All along, the battle was never between two alien races one of whom humans decided to ally themselves with. The Autobots
we see in the movies are not the vanguard of an organized military force, but merely remnants seeking to sabotage their
victorious foe out of sheer spite and hatred. And Optimus has succeeded in manipulating them into re-igniting a war that he
himself could not win.
Remember Megatron saying “you still fight for the weak, that is why you lose” at the end of the first movie? “The weak” does
not refer to humanity, because that would make no sense. It refers to the Autobots
i wish more people said that being single is normal
and you’re not going to meet and marry someone
and that’s fine
and if marriage happens, it happens. and it’s not the next big ticket to check off in life’s checklist
because not everyone meets someone they want to marry. and that’s normal
you’re not broken or unfulfilled if you are single
So uh, I haven’t seen this on my dash, but check out this kickstarter!
