Dear internet, this is how you gently and thoughtfully change people’s minds. No shaming, no yelling, just a nice nudge to, “Aha!”
I will aspire to use classy same tone next time I try to educate someone about something!

Feminism is having a wardrobe malfunction.

Does your brand of feminism remove barriers for women, or simply move them around? Does is expand options for women, or does it just shift them? You don’t liberate women by forcing them to choose option B instead of option A. What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.

Before you think the girl in the middle is a strawman, let me tell you I used to be her, back in my misguided youth. I considered myself the standard to which other people should adhere. But that was stupid. It’s not up to me to tell people how to dress, and it’s much nicer to let everyone choose for themselves.

Some women would feel naked without a veil. Some women would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Some women would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.

I almost hit a little stray dog with my car today. I spent the next hour following him through the rain, heading him off from major roads and trying to get close enough to clip a leash to his busted collar. I managed to get within a couple feet after about half an hour of edging in on my knees with gentle talk, hand extended, but I didn’t want to make a grab in case I lost all my progress. He was such a sweetheart, but soaked and shivering and so, so terrified, and a passing car had him off and running again. A few people tried to help out, but they were chasing him, which only made him bolt faster. Eventually, I lost sight of him and had no way of knowing which side street he’d taken.
I think that if I’d only had some food to offer, I could’ve earned enough trust to get the leash on. I posted a picture to the local Craigslist lost and found, in case just knowing he was seen in that area helps someone find him, but I’m not optimistic. It is breaking my fucking heart to remember looking in his scared little eyes and trying to convince him that everything would be okay. I really hoped I could save this one— I’ve managed to catch and return four other runaways before— and it’s going to haunt me forever that I wasn’t able to help him.
UPDATE!!!

Hey! I just saw your post and wanted to tell you my partner and I got this little guy safely to the vet last night. He was so scared and so fast! But he ran into a driveway that had no outlet and we were able to bundle him in a blanket and pick him up. If you do hear from his owner would you let me know or let them know he is now at the multnomah co shelter unless he had been picked up by his family.. If his family isn’t located they are supposed to call us.
I thought you’d want to know he is safe!

just imagine a room full of dads all wearing polo shirts and sneakers telling awful jokes to each other and they all find it hilarious

finally

they belong

Oh god my dad would be in that room

you walk into the room and go: “dad please let’s go home i am hungry”

and they all turn around collectively and chant: “HI HUNGRY I’M DAD”

     No one before Bernini had managed to make marble so carnal. In his nimble hands it would flatter and stream, quiver and sweat. His figures weep and shout, their torsos twist and run, and arch themselves in spasms of intense sensation. He could, like an alchemist, change one material into another - marble into trees, leaves, hair, and, of course, flesh.

This website is like a suicide hotline but with text chat instead.  I would appreciate it if you guys helped spread the word.

Guys, seriously. Signal boost. I needed this the other night, and a few weeks ago I was talking with someone who needed it. This is the best freaking thing ever. 

Always.

I am so glad I found this. I hate calling hotlines. this is perfect, everyone must know.
