Towards the whole "pronouns hurt people's feelings" topic. Am I REALLY the only person on the planet that thinks people are becoming far to sensative? Nearly to the point that they shouldn't leave their little home bubbles in the case that a bird chirps next to them in a way that sounds like a mean word. Maybe, JUST MAYBE, we're becoming a little TOO coddling and people need to learn to deal with simplistic shit like words. And yes, I've been insulted and made fun of. I got over it. So can you.

Supposedly invented by the Chinese, there is an ancient form of torture that is nothing more than cold, tiny drops falling upon a person’s forehead. 

On its own, a single drop is nothing. It falls upon the brow making a tiny splash. It doesn’t hurt. No real harm comes from it. 

In multitudes, the drops are still fairly harmless. Other than a damp forehead, there really is no cause for concern. 

The key to the torture is being restrained. You cannot move. You must feel each drop. You have lost all control over stopping these drops of water from splashing on your forehead. 

It still doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. But person after person, time and time again—would completely unravel psychologically. They all had a breaking point where each drop turned into a horror. Building and building until all sense of sanity was completely lost. 

"It was just a joke, quit being so sensitive."

"They used the wrong pronoun, big deal."

"So your parents don’t understand, it could be worse."

Day after day. Drop after drop. It builds up. A single instance on its own is no big deal. A few drops, not a problem. But when you are restrained, when you cannot escape the drops, when it is unending—these drops can be agony. 

People aren’t sensitive because they can’t take a joke. Because they can’t take being misgendered one time. Because they lack a thick skin. 

People are sensitive because the drops are unending and they have no escape from them. 

You are only seeing the tiny, harmless, single drop hitting these so-called “sensitive” people. You are failing to see the thousands of drops endured before that. You are failing to see the restraints that make them inescapable.

NASA recently released imagery showing the deforestation of America  …in just 34 years.

We are killing the Earth

Forever reblog.

Oh wow

THIS HURTS

How long are we going to keep closing our eyes to this? What are we going to do?

NEVER SCROLL PAST THIS

Its just going to become this blue and brown planet, children in the future will draw their planet with brown and not green like we used to

This needs to fucking change 

WALL-E IS BECOMING REAL LIFE

I wish we could do something about this but what can we do? No one would listen.

That’s a fucking shit attitude.

So is that^ we need to stand up for our planet! It is everyone’s planet so let’s start acting like it!

I wonder how many of those nearly 1 million notes are from vegans…

Also, hasn’t it been proven that the second photo is just taken during the winter? And the first is during the summer? I saw a version with sources saying that I believe.

JK Rowling said she would have made Seamus/Dean canon but she felt it would be distracting from the main trio

Literally how much space do you need to have a line about Dean asking Seamus to the Yule ball

Look, I’ll try

"Parvati had tried to ask Dean to the ball, but he told her he was going with Seamus instead."

DONE

This reminds me of the “It would take twice as much development to animate a woman.”

of all the things to choose from to criticize modern liberal feminism
not the racism, classism, ableism, or any other of the blatantly problematic issues

but leg hair. amazing.

I grow my arm pit hair and leg hair now. Just a bit.
Resistance!

and…

Also they think its an objective FACT that body hair is unattractive? Like, I’ve seen some legs that are hairy and they’re STILL strong, beautiful and sexy? Hair doesn’t make legs ugly??? I am so confused as to how they think this?

read this my friend read it

http://dishabathija.com/post/92729180330/feminism-making-you-ugly

the entire thing is condescending and frankly pretty bizarre like THAT’S the one thing you go after??? not the fact that a huge amount of mainstream feminism excludes PoC, disabled people, nonbinary people

look at this

incredible i had no idea that the human form allowed someone’s head to go that far up their own asshole

Dressing well is a form of good manners. If you want to go hairy, by all means do. But please, put on a pair of pants and spare your onlookers the cringing embarrassment.”

 

Omg I can’t wait to get home and take LOTS of pictures of my hair legs and shorts that I wear in a business casual work environment and no one gives a shit because mature adults aren’t pissbabies like the OP of that gawdawful link.
