Saving Face (2012), acid attacks on women in Pakistan
Meanwhile, in America, feminists are complaining about how dress codes are oppressive.
You idiots have never experienced oppression, and pray you never do, because this is what it looks like.
As a South Asian American feminist, let me remind everyone that oppression is not a competition.
Just because we fight one type of sexism doesn’t mean we don’t care about other instances of sexism that don’t affect us directly in our day to day lives.
My heart goes out to this woman and the hundreds of other victims like her. I want to educate people about these kinds of incidents. I support organizations that help women like this.
You may think that dress code issues are trivial, but they are related to a larger issue of women’s bodily autonomy, which affects women’s health and safety.
So please, let’s try to bring awareness and bring about change instead of insulting entire groups of people because they are facing issues that are less scary than the one presented.
“oppression is not a competition”
thank you so much for this wording
Doesn’t that look beautiful?
Like something you’d find on one of those soft/nature blogs?
Well you are in for a surprise
The Bolton Strid in England is one of the most innocent looking streams.
Though it looks like you could just hop across the rocks, but if you miss you will die for sure. It packs very rapid currents just a couple of feet below its surface. No one really knows how deep it really is. Nobody who has ever fallen into the Strid has survived. It has a 100% fatality rate.
It’s always the things I google expecting to be false that wind up being horribly true.
I forgot to add but here is a SOURCE
"It’s relatively common for people to assume they can jump the creek, walk across its stones or even wade through it (again, just looking at it, the Strid really seems to be only knee-deep in places, and certainly not the instant, precipitous drop into a watery grave that it is). Most of the time, they never even find the body. Which means there are just dozens of corpses down there, pinned to the walls of the underground chasms, waiting for you to join them…"

The Right to Childhood Should be UNTOUCHABLE.
No, the writers did not pull that name out of thin air but rather from a pastiche biography of Sherlock Holmes by William S. Baring-Gould.
is it just me, or does chris evans look freaking amazing in drag
He looks like auroa…
he looks so pleased in the end “DID YOU SEE THAT?”
The act of lying in public space is often uncommon or (worse still) prohibited. Not in the park of the Museum of Architecture in Wrocław (Poland), where Mikołaj Smoleński has upset ordinary. Within the sixth edition of Archi-box series, he has created Polegiwacz, a temporary architecture designed to lie down and relax.

Want to go to there.
see, that’s gun control
Japanese citizens can own guns — once they’ve proven they know how to responsibly use them and store them. Once they’ve proven they’re fit to own a gun. For some reason, this completely reasonable notion is considered ~TYRannY~ ~affront to LIBERTY~ in the United States.
Cool big osprey bird close to the Cabin, and if you look close you can see the fish in the talons of the osprey. Looks like its partially eaten by the young little ones in the nest.
Sherlock fandom at any given day
When I was a kid I thought your 20s were supposed to be fun, not filled with perpetual anxiety about financial stability and constantly feeling like an unaccomplished piece of shit.
That’s because it was fun for baby boomers and they basically gave us this impression it would always be like that, but then they ruined the economy.
celebrities that get more shit than they should:
- nicki minaj
- miley cyrus
- lindsay lohan

celebrities that don’t get enough shit:
- justin bieber
- nash grier
- justin bieber
notice how the first list is all women leading the industry. notice how the second list is two teenage boys who think they run shit but they’re hurting people.
Homosexuality is unnatural! It says so in this book where snakes talk, people come back from the dead, a guy walks on water, and a virgin has a baby.
