WOMEN: don’t be successful - you might hurt a man’s feelings. #sexism #wtf #heteronormativetoo #whataloadofbollocks

After reading this, this is all I am going to try to do. To succeed.
And they say male privilege doesn’t exist? How about instead of telling women to stop trying to be successful and you know achieve their dreams (GOD FORBID WOMEN TRY TO BE SUCCESSFUL AND ACHIEVE THEIR DREAMS) how about teaching men and boys that women are human beings and they should stop throwing a tantrum about women succeeding.
The kind of man who will be intimidated by my success is exactly the kind of man I don’t want.

Men are such fragile little things, the slightest breeze hurts their fee-fees.

Can we also just talk about the fact that earlier in this scene, Quinn says, “Rachel was Finn’s soul mate.”  Not, “Rachel and Finn were soul mates.” or even, “Finn was Rachel’s soul mate.”

This has been driving me crazy since I watched the scene and I think I finally figured out why:

Sure, Rachel could have been Finn’s soul mate, and I think that’s a fair assumption for Quinn (I don’t believe it for a second) to make, and it probably took a lot for her to admit, but Finn was never Rachel’s. 

Let’s be honest here, Quinn has always been very concerned about the social hierarchy, her status, and for some reason she has always considered boys as stepping-stones for a secure future. She relies on them. She preaches independence but needs Finn in order to win prom queen. Sometimes I can’t tell if she’s a hypocrite or a genius that knows how to get what she wants.

Now, here’s the thing, when it comes to Rachel, she absolutely cannot and will not stand to see her settling. As someone who once LITERALLY described her future as working in real estate while her husband owned a tire shop, which to her I’m sure is the epitome of a Lima Loser, she is dead set on not allowing Rachel to fall victim to that life. She pushed Rachel to move on from Finn and when that didn’t work, she pushed Rachel to hold off on their wedding. 

Even though Quinn was willing to settle with Finn in Lima, she’s always known that he wasn’t her soul mate, just like she’s always known that Finn wasn’t Rachel’s soul mate, either. When Puck asks her who her soul mate is, she doesn’t answer.

What’s amazing to me is that she probably knows that Rachel is her soul mate, and maybe she knows that she could be Rachel’s as well, but she’ll never admit it. She’s been brutally honest with Rachel on just about everything, but not that. Because for Quinn Fabray, the only thing more heartbreaking than settling is rejection. And I think that’s heartbreaking in itself, because she’s still going to end up settling. This girl, this complex, insecure, beautifully tragic girl will settle with a stepping stone rather than take a risk to be with her soul mate.

She’ll never have Rachel so she runs after Puck.

And that fucking drives me crazy.

How to block Sponsored Posts on your Dashboard

nekomimiclay:

ookiepigster:

Tumblr has recently introduced Sponsored Posts. These posts can come from anyone, regardless of whether or not you follow them, and are primarily for advertising. If you want to block them, simply install Tumblr Savior and blacklist “sponsored_badge_icon” (without the quotes).

Oh wow OK let’s please signal boost this because some recent ones have been GIFs of horror and so on, and that makes Tumblr incredibly unsafe for a good amount of people. S:

today at the bookstore i asked the lady working if she had any lgbtq books that i could check out and her eyes magnified in what i mistook as horror and i thought i had offended her and then she said “i have a bag of lesbian fiction in the basement i’ve been waiting for someone to finally ask” and she all but burst down the stairs to get them for me

bless

"I have a bag of lesbian fiction in the basement" is my new go-to pickup line

22-year-old cafeteria worker aboard capsized Korean ship sacrificed herself to save others


our hundred and seventy-six people were aboard the Sewol, which tragically capsized on Wednesday — one of them was 22-year-old Park Ji-young. She worked in the cafeteria, not as part of the crew. The ship’s communication officer announced to passengers that it was “more dangerous to move” than to risk a disorderly evacuation. Frigid water was filling the ferry’s lower levels, causing it to list hard to one side.
The crew didn’t stick around to help anyone else. It was Park who stayed behind to calm down frightened children and pass out life jackets. She didn’t save one for herself, and she told passengers that she wouldn’t leave the boat until every passenger was safely off and accounted for. "After saving you, I will get out," she reportedly said. "The crew goes out last."
"Park pushed shocked passengers toward the exit even when the water was up to her chest," said one witness.

"Dont say you hate your fam-" No.

"Omg you should love your fami-" No.

"Be grateful they’re your famil-" No.

If you have been bullied, hit, teased, put down, hurt, lied to, or hated by you’re own family; you don’t need to justify how you feel. You dont need to explain yourself. You are allowed to hate a family member or dislike a family member if they’ve given you a reason to.

It takes a few seconds, please. Representation of trans people is worthy of a few seconds of your time at least?
