Hello there, world! My name is Allie. I am a junior in high school and I am a 95% straight, totally single, fangirl. I am mainly a fandom blog that also posts some random crap on the side. My main fandoms on this blog are; Doctor Who, Sherlock, Supernatural, Pushing Daisies, American Horror Story, Harry Potter, Hannibal, Once Upon a Time, Firefly, Percy Jackson, The Hunger Games, The Avengers, Welcome to Night Vale, and so much more. I'm also in some bandoms like The Beatles, Panic! At the Disco, and others. I've also recently gotten into Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Other than that, I post whatever I want on this blog and if anything offends you on here, anything at all, just remember this is MY sanctuary and this is where I find peace. If you've got a problem with this, feel free to unfollow me. But, I highly encourage you to follow me because I will follow you back no matter who you are or what you post. (However, I will block most porn blogs if they aren't fandom blogs.) So yeah. Au revior! :)
I really wish people would stop bitching at people who post their arms all cut up. That’s just their way of venting. So instead of calling them Attention Whores/Glorifying (yes we hear it) maybe you should talk to them and help them. Saying things like that may be the very last words they hear. That’s their last cry for help. HELP THEM don’t insult them.
I’m going to keep reblogging this until it’s pounded into peoples’ heads.
True gender equality is actually perceived as inequality. A group that is made up of 50% women is perceived as being mostly women. A situation that is perfectly equal between men and women is perceived as being biased in favor of women.
And if you don’t believe me, you’ve never been a married woman who kept her family name. I have had students hold that up as proof of my “sexism.”
My own brother told me that he could never marry a woman who kept her name because “everyone would know who ruled that relationship.” Perfect equality – my husband keeps his name and I keep mine – is held as a statement of superiority on my part.
Read this article; it’s short and worthwhile, and uses points of reference nearly everyone in our culture can understand. I don’t think I’ve ever seen male privilege outlined so levelly and succinctly.(via brierobbie)
