Alright, here’s something funny. These boys in my hall went outside in their undies to take some photos in the snow. Funny, right? They’re trying to get attention and it’s hilarious. Us ladies choose to do the same, we are wearing more clothing, and are doing the exact same poses. We are wearing as much clothing as is acceptable at the pool or the beach, at the gym, etc.
There is a serious double standard here— us girls have gotten responses like:
"What’s the point of being half naked?"
"*ahem* sluts *ahem*"
"What’s wrong with you females?"
Or worse, what my mother said. Her initial shock was apparently because she thought I was in my underwear, but when I told her I was in a swimsuit, she was suddenly happy I was having fun in college.
The idea here is that we are doing the same thing. When arguing this point with one of my hallmates, he said “But men’s bodies aren’t built the same, you don’t see girls getting pumped up over a topless guy, but how many guys do you think are gonna get all crazy over a topless girl?” Seriously? Really? Women don’t need to dress in order to avoid a reaction from men. You’re mad because you can’t control yourself? Men can pose in their undies in the snow without an issue because women aren’t going to go wild over it? Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours.
The double standards are killin’ me.
"Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours." Is literally one of the best quotes I’ve ever heard. Thank you.
Just come on, group hug..bring it in everyone..
she is SIXTEEN
she also got shot in the HEAD and LIVED
She is amazing person because she was almost killed and still continues to speak out and believe in herself and that what shes doing is right.
i love Malala so much.
Stephen nailed it last night. The sexism in this debate from Fox and others is unacceptable, especially in the light that women get paid less than men but still have to pay more for health insurance.
sorry we’re unfairly charged with the responsibility of continuing the human race. and maybe men would live longer if they went to the doctor more.

Remember when this guy…
And got sucked back to Gallifrey during the time war?
Which considering it didn’t get destroyed now, means he could very easily come back?
HOLD ON WHAT
THE HILLS ARE ALIVE WITH THE SOUND OF EXTREMELY EXCITED SCREAMING
- call you names
- tell you weird and personal details about myself
- say “I NEED TO PEE” instead of just brb
- type in caps a lot.
If i’m extra comfortable with you I’ll do all that and:
- talk casually about porn and really perverted thoughts
- share funny photos from my tumblr dash
- actually tell you when i’m upset
- try to make conversation with you
- just generally act really silly when I’m in a good mood
- tell you jokes even if they’re bad
It would be the best thing ever if people put characters or pairings in my ask and I would put my itunes on shuffle and find a line that fits with it from the song I get. Like, I do this stuff in my spare time anyway so can this be a game pls
