my teacher sent a student home today because the student had had an anxiety attack earlier in the morning and she said “if you have a broken bone, you don’t just keep walking on it and damaging it more, you treat it. Your mental health is the same. Health then school.” 

I was about to get really angry but it took a different turn than I expected
we really need more teachers like this

HERE’S JUST HOW MUCH IT PAYS TO BE CONVENTIONALLY ATTRACTIVE

We’ve come to expect impossible, even improbable standards of beauty to populate our magazines and our television shows. It’s another thing entirely to find they’ve invaded our workplace.

Watch Vox’s full video to see the many other ways these unrealistic beauty standards effect where we work.

Holy schnikes.

Now let’s just unpack who is “conventionally attractive”

^^^^^^^

backin15minutes asked: Hi, I have a question about cultural appropriation. I recently bought a ukulele for my birthday, and I really wanted to name it (I like naming my instruments!). I thought it might be appropriate to give it a Hawaiin name or word. Would that be disrespectful to that culture? I really don't want to offend anyone, I just want a pretty name for my new ukulele. Thanks!

anthrostories:

I think it would be fine and I’ve asked several ppl what they thought and think it’s fine. A Hawaiian name seems fitting.

Yes?No?

Thank you. I just wanted to be respectful :-)

if you ever feel the urge to tell someone they aren’t a “real reader” because they only read YA or only romance or don’t read every classic ever written here is a tip: don’t  

this also goes for people that say they’re going to unfollow someone for reading (or not reading) a certain author/genre

(Just a Few of) The Federal Benefits of Marriage Equality

What we didn’t have yesterday.

THIS IS WHY IT’S HUGE

You mean people didn’t used to qualify for these things?

Married people qualify for these things. Which means in most states, same-sex couples do not.

That’s the joke! Ha ha haHaHaHA! Ha… ha…

I’m sad, now.

But in all seriousness, I’m so happy this is getting around even more. I was excited when I compiled this, though I have to admit, I was a little more optimistic that it would either be 1. legal in all states by now, and/or 2. common knowledge for people. Yes, our rights are significantly less than your average person and it does indeed suck. Our state still inflicts a shitton of red tape upon K’s and my marriage, and we still don’t have basic rights. Tax season is a goddamned nightmare, and that’s the least of our worries in regards to state laws and regulations.

Think about anyone who has come out as bisexual in the media. Megan Fox, Billie Joe Armstrong, Margaret Cho, Anna Paquin, Megan Mullally, David Bowie, Angelina Jolie.

Their sexuality is usually glossed over — often times, the media decides the person is either gay or straight, depending the relationship they are currently in or the relationship they get into in the future. If a man comes out as bisexual and in the future gets into a relationship with another man, people generally define him as homosexual (such as Alan Cumming). It’s important to note both homosexual and heterosexual people are monosexual and only attracted to one gender. In saying someone is straight or gay based on who they are currently with totally negates an individual’s identity.

Several people throughout have been classified as monosexual, despite identifying as bi. Marlon Brando himself was bisexual and he’s well-known as a “manly” man, it’s no surprise that people would want to erase his sexuality to fit their perception of him. Anne Frank was also bisexual; she wrote about having a love for girls and wanting a girl to date in her diaries. Angelina Jolie is one of the most well-known bisexuals and she still gets marked under a monosexual title because of her long term relationship with Brad Pitt. Yet, in doing this, people are neglecting her identity.
