Once you first start noticing how often men will interrupt or talk over you if you’re a woman you can’t ever stop like every time i have a conversation with a man or participate in a class discussion i notice it and it’s honestly my biggest irritant

notice it and stop it. don’t let them talk over you. if they start, do not stop what you are saying and look them straight in the eye until they do. it should not be tolerated

My niece is really good at this.

And, if you are a man, make an effort to notice if you are doing this to other people, then apologize, stop, and wait your turn.

A male author can write about unlikable male characters. They’re called anti-heroes and it’s called a novel.

Gillian Flynn on people calling her writing misogynistic in Glamour magazine, the October 2014 issue. The level of sass and taking no shit from both her and Rosamund Pike-who Flynn interviews in this article-is strong and gives me life. (via samishoward)

Nobody’s called me misogynistic or misanthropic.  What am I doing wrong?

Oh, right.  I write A) genre, B) kids’, C) teenagers.  As far as adult literature is concerned, we don’t count.

Too bad.

“oh, there are pictures.. I keep them where I need the most cheering up.”

For those who don’t know the story behind this:

Before Maggie was born, Homer Simpson worked at the Nuclear Plant because he needed the money to pay for all the debt. Once Homer Simpson finally payed the debt, he quit his job to work at his dream job at the bowling alley. When Homer Simpson found out that Marge was pregnant with Maggie, he became depressed that he had to quit his job at the bowling alley because the salary couldn’t support them. When Homer Simpson begged Mr. Burns for his old life back, he put a plaque that reads “Don’t Forget: You’re Here Forever.” When Maggie was born, Homer instantly fell in love with her. When Lisa asked Homer where did all Maggie’s baby pictures went, Homer explains that he keeps it where he needs it the most.

Why I love the Simpsons.

me doing an interview for an article on gender equality

  • me:

    so are you a feminist?

  • student teacher guy:

    no, I wouldn't say so.

  • me:

    why?

  • student teacher guy:

    well... actually, what's the definition of feminism?

  • me:

    *recites dictionary.com definition I wrote on my paper bc I knew I would need it at some point*

  • student teacher guy:

    oh. well I do believe that women should have equal opportunities. I just thought it was more of a pro-women and almost anti-men thing.

  • me:

    so you are a feminist?

  • student teacher guy:

    well, yes.

  • *at the end of the interview*

  • me:

    what do you think you can do to help women?

  • student teacher guy:

    tell all my friends the definition of feminism.

Who remembers the Berenstain Bears? Many people actually remember it as the Berenstein Bears. It’s part of the Mandela theory, or a term that someone is positive something happened although it didn’t. Many attribute these false memories as a glimpse into a parallel universe. (Source)

Ok nonononono fuck no I swear I have these on my shelf and I swear to god they say Berenstein, I am checking right now this cannot be real

WHAT THE FUCJK THEY ALL FUKCING SAY BERENSTAIN THEY DIDN’T SAY THAT WHEN i WAS A CHILD I DON’T UNDERSTAND. THIS CANNOT BE REAL, THIS CANNOT BE A THING

It was DEFINITELY Berenstein though, this is blowing my mind. If you had asked me before this moment I would have spelled it that way, and now I have like ten books on my shelf spelled like freaking Berenstain.

Clearly whoever posted this has warped reality such that, once you see it, Berenstein turns to Berenstain.  Even Google reflects the change to this new reality!
