So, if boobs aren't sex organs like all you feminists claim, then what's wrong with commenting on them? If you have purple hair, I'm going to mention it! If you have giant boobs, I'm going to mention it! If they're not sexual, then what's your problem?

Translation: I don’t understand the difference between sex organs and secondary sex characteristics, nor do I understand how society has coded certain secondary sex characteristics to be sexual while others are left “neutral.” I also don’t understand how I am drawing a false equivalency between hair and breasts, as only one has been sexualized within Western cultures, and I’m really desperate to justify my own obsession with sexually harassing women.

Now they are secondary sex characteristics? Are we just going to keep on making up words until men aren’t allowed to look at women?

Feminists didn’t make up the term “secondary sex characteristics” to shame men for looking at women. It’s a scientific term for features that appear when a person or any other animal has reached sexual maturity. Here’s the wikipedia article since you were unable to look it up yourself. 

People are of course allowed to appreciate others’ bodies. What is not acceptable is sending objectifying messages to a total stranger about the way their body looks. 

Why is this so fucking difficult?

It’s rude to leer and make harassing comments = I can never look at women again. Yes, this is true. If all you can do is leer and harass, maybe you shouldn’t ever look at a woman again.

if you want to understand the psyche of our generation take a good look at the stories we tell ourselves about the future

because it isn’t flying cars or robot dogs, it’s faceless government surveillance and worldwide pandemics and militarized police brutality and the last dregs of humanity struggling to survive

our generation isn’t self-centered, or lazy, or whatever else they wanna say about us. we are young, and we are here, and we are deeply, deeply afraid.

We are the girls with anxiety disorders, filled appointment books, five-year plans. We take ourselves very, very seriously. We are the peacemakers, the do-gooders, the givers, the savers. We are on time, overly prepared, well read, and witty, intellectually curious, always moving … We pride ourselves on getting as little sleep as possible and thrive on self-deprivation. We drink coffee, a lot of it. We are on birth control, Prozac, and multivitamins … We are relentless, judgmental with ourselves, and forgiving to others. We never want to be as passive-aggressive are our mothers, never want to marry men as uninspired as our fathers … We are the daughters of the feminists who said, “You can be anything,” and we heard, “You have to be everything.”

Source: Understanding the phenomenon of synesthesia.

Follow Francesca Mura on Pinterest

I experience forms of this. 

I have grapheme-color synesthesia. I made a post about it, like, a year ago. Where did I put that thing? Anyway, I’m an associator. :D

I remember reading about this in horrible science when I was young. There was a guy could apparently remember everything in his life due to synesthesia. I also remember he once told someone: “What a crumbly yellow voice you have!”

No formal diagnosis but ordinal-linguistic personification represent! It’s letters, numerals, and months for me. Letters are the strongest one.

reblogging with all the crap because it has the source but oh hey, i’m actually confirmed by a doctor to have this. it’s the most frustratingly beautiful thing.

Getyedone.com: Turn your To-do list into an adventure!

greni:

When it come to lists, I have been a very happy user of wunderlist for a long time - it is very simple, you can add notes or documents to your tasks and what is the most important thing, I have a very nice wooden background there! 

Though lately, I’ve been looking for something like a social website for to-do listers, where you would earn points for finished tasks or so, convinced that there just has to be something like that. And there is, even better than I expected!!

Getyedone.com (or just “Challenge accepted”) offers you a RPG form of completing tasks on your to-do list. When you sign up , you choose your class, alignment and race and then you just earn EXP and skills for finished tasks. It’s not really a game (therefore no procrastination!), though leveling up and competing with others might quite motivate you to complete more and more tasks.

Regarding the practical side of this website, what I really appreciate is actually the "quest log" system. You do not only have just tasks there - you can group them into guests and these guests into large odysseys, which gives your to-do list nice structure.Though what I appreciate even more is that your tasks can be endurable and you can complete them as many times as you wish (for example I tick answering e-mails every morning)

And finally, another one quite interesting feature is called “parties” - simply groups for users to somehow meet and compete. That alone is not that cool… but an idea to create one of these for tumblr users definitely is! It could be quite nice to gather all studyspo buddies over there to be productive in one place, so please reblog this with your name if you make an account or just write me some message, because that would be so exciting! Let’s just connect okaay?

my friend and i had to break a social norm for our sociology class so we drove around and catcalled boys (and one male teacher omfg) and they all looked so alarmed and confused and like they thought we were straight up crazy it was priceless and it rlly highlighted the fact that women just expect to be harassed when walking down the street whereas guys are just completely taken aback by it

this is a really important thing for people to understand

I hope you got an A!!

Hey, so I got accepted to my dream school but the problem is that it takes me an hour to get there by bus. I'm so worried because I'll have so little time to study and everything since my school is far away... and there's no way for me to move..

attackonstudying answered:

Congrats on getting accepted. Hmm, my school takes about an hour to get there as well by bus. Have you tried to study on the bus? You could save some study time by studying whilst you take the transportation. I know it is not for everyone because some feel sick after reading on the bus/metro. But, you could make use of that time. If you feel distracted in that environment, just listen to some music and study. I need music to study since it helps me filter out all the other noises. Think of it this way, if you do study on the bus, you would have more free time to spend when you get home. The study time on the bus would add up if you are constant. 

That is also what I do. I read/study whilst taking transportation so when I return back home, I am able to have a bit more leisure time.

Good Luck.

If you get sick reading on the bus you could also tape your lectures to listen to instead to make use of that time.
