A human in transition to transition. Not quite an adult and fighting the symptoms of growing up.

I wish people would remember this in all situations of shitty things happening to women.

The council estate behind my building is being demolished by Prosser Demolition and Recycling.

It took me a couple of weeks to work out why the name was so familiar and then I realised. I’m slightly worried there might be an approaching hyperspace bypass.

Feminism is knowing that you don’t have to wear things to impress a man

Feminism is also knowing that it’s okay to wear things to impress a man if you want to

Society forgets the first part, tumblr forgets the second part

sometimes it’s really hard not to hate this country.

this is extremely relevant rn

then how do we differentiate ourselves, people with love for humankind regardless of nationality, from the nationalist dumb asses that think America is superior and only care about white Americans? And blindly follow their country? Because there’s a shitload of these people and they often call themselves patriots.


And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.

Don’t get me started.

I think people don’t understand what the unemployment rate means.  It means the number of jobs there ARE compared to the number of people there are looking for jobs.  

People seem to somehow think that the unemployment rate is the number of people sitting around unemployed, as if there are thousands of companies with open positions and since the unemployed people all keep sitting on their butts, those companies are just somehow getting by without filling those positions????

The unemployment rate is the number of people who will be left over after all of the available jobs are filled.  

It’s the number of people who are going to be wasting all of their waking hours each week looking for jobs that don’t exist.

Michael Dunn had a philosophy.  He believed that there were hundreds of little people actors, but none of them could actually act.  As a result, Dunn decided that being short was not enough for him in order to enter the world of acting.  A classically trained actor, Dunn refused to play the standard little people roles being offered to people of his height, such as novelty roles, babies and circus midgets.  He believed that he was as good as any normal sized actor, and sought to compete for those roles.  He believed that being short was not a handicap.  As a result, Dunn not only raised the standard for little people actors everywhere, but is still the only little person ever to be nominated for an Oscar.

Men who want to be feminists do not need to be given a space in feminism. They need to take the space they have in society & make it feminist.
