“I’m tired of talking about feminism to men.
I’m tired of explaining to men that the feminist movement will, in fact, benefit them as well as women. I’m tired of trying to hawk gender equality like I’m some kind of car salesman showing off a shiny new sedan, explaining all of its bells and whistles. I’m tired of smiling through a thousand thoughtless microaggressions, tired of providing countless pieces of evidence, tired of being questioned on every. Single. Damn. Thing.I’m tired of proving that microaggressions exist, tired of proving that I’m unfairly questioned and asked for proof. For a movement that’s centered around the advancement and empowerment of women, why do I feel like I’m supposed to spend so damn much of my time carefully considering how what I say and do will be taken by men?
I’m tired of men who insert themselves into feminist spaces with claims of hurt feelings. I’m tired of men who somehow manage to make every issue about them. I’m tired of men like the one who recently stopped by a friend’s Facebook thread in order to call feminism “c*nty”, then lecture the women involved for being too “hostile” in their responses to him. I’m tired of men telling me that my understanding of feminism and rape culture are wrong, as if these aren’t things that I have studied intensely. I’m tired of men who claim to be feminist allies, then abuse that position to their own advantage. I’m so fucking exhausted by the fact that I know that I will have to, at some point in this piece, mention that I understand that not all men are like that. I will have to note that some men are good allies. And all of those things are true! And all of you good allies get cookies! But honestly,I’m tired of handing out cookies to people just because they’re decent fucking human beings.”
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Exactly what happened last night
Psychology time! This is called perception psychology and he’s right. Imagining how a situation will go does help ease tension and nervousness. Because eventually you trick your brain into thinking it already performed the action if you imagine the event in enough detail.
It doesn’t quite work out for Dento here and sometimes it doesn’t work out but it’s a very very useful technique for dealing with anxiety, I do it often before I do something new
- Easy and very effective
- Requires nothing but your body
- Includes attack
Very useful to know, pass and share please.
I don’t mean to impose a personal favour on you guys, but I really would like to ask that everyone who follows me reblog this.
I don’t think I made it very clear but last month I was sexually assaulted by someone who I thought was my friend (I don’t want to talk about it don’t ask), and it’s… really fucked with my head.
Had I known this a month ago I would have been able to get away.
So, essentially, I’m really pleading with you to reblog this so everyone who follows you doesn’t get stuck in the same position I was with no way out.
I mean again I don’t want the point of this to be my sob story or whatever but if you could reblog this it would seriously mean a lot
and im asking to all of my followers who see this post in your dashboard to please press play to this video, you never know when this is gonna be useful, PLEASE DON’T IGNORE IT.
This is one of the first moves I was taught in Krav Maga, and it is one of the most effective.
It took me about a half hour to get down with practice, but once you get it, it’s an intuitive movement.
Please pass this along, it will save lives.
Please reblog this.
Oh no this is news to me.
EVERYONE. EVERYONE I HAUFE
CON FESS ION I HA V E

Yugi grew up. That’s what I’d like to think.
Awww this is super warm and fuzzy <3
And then you realize, that even though Yugi did, the pharaoh never got the chance to grow up.
He died when he was 16. That’s when boys usually go through puberty. Atem never had the experience of growing up.
He’s going to be stuck as a teen for eternity.
His entire future was stolen from him. And it probably hurt seeing Yugi grow up, knowing that he wouldn’t need Atem anymore.
No more games. Sure it was great having Yugi mature a little, but Atem had to watch personally as someone gained something he was never able to have.
I can imagine him having a marik-like breakdown because of this.Remember season 0? When Yami appears at first, he acts like an angry child. A cocky, rude, terrifying on so many levels angry child, but still an angry child. That’s who he really is. We never see the Pharaoh’s soul room after he gets his memories. What if it’s full of toys like Yugi’s? He acts mature around others because he wants to be like his father, but without his only playmate, like in season 4 DOMA arc, he throws tantrums, and is over emotional. Yugi was his first friend in 3,000 years. Even in the afterlife, all of his friends and family grew up before they died. They’re adults. He’s still a little kid. And since Yugi grew up, Atem is alone again, just like in the puzzle. He wanted to be like his dad, but he is mentally and spiritually incapable of ever maturing.
