that art i just reblogged is making me cry. i’m literally sobbing because of it. non-white passing Armenians in a piece of Armenian created art. it makes me so happy.
I am absolutely OBSESSED with Sevada Grigoryan’s paintings. They’re just so colorful and gorgeous—trying to capture the old flavors of Armenian culture. Of course, the paintings are a bit whimsical in nature but don’t act like you don’t love them too.
Alright, here’s something funny. These boys in my hall went outside in their undies to take some photos in the snow. Funny, right? They’re trying to get attention and it’s hilarious. Us ladies choose to do the same, we are wearing more clothing, and are doing the exact same poses. We are wearing as much clothing as is acceptable at the pool or the beach, at the gym, etc.
There is a serious double standard here— us girls have gotten responses like:
"What’s the point of being half naked?"
"*ahem* sluts *ahem*"
"What’s wrong with you females?"
Or worse, what my mother said. Her initial shock was apparently because she thought I was in my underwear, but when I told her I was in a swimsuit, she was suddenly happy I was having fun in college.
The idea here is that we are doing the same thing. When arguing this point with one of my hallmates, he said “But men’s bodies aren’t built the same, you don’t see girls getting pumped up over a topless guy, but how many guys do you think are gonna get all crazy over a topless girl?” Seriously? Really? Women don’t need to dress in order to avoid a reaction from men. You’re mad because you can’t control yourself? Men can pose in their undies in the snow without an issue because women aren’t going to go wild over it? Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours.
The double standards are killin’ me.
"Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours." Is literally one of the best quotes I’ve ever heard. Thank you.
I was born in the wrong generation, take me back to the paleoarchean era. I want to be insentient. I want to be bacteria

i will never not reblog. its too accurate
wait do girls really go in those weird half standing positions and stand on their heads type deal???
[Translation : “I’m not racist but Miss France competition should be only for white women, it seems logical actually” “In terms of beauty, sorry but blacks don’t come close to whites.” “Blacks all look the same, it’s disturbing”]
I guess it was predictable.
Yesterday, Flora Coquerel won the Miss France competition. And now, racist comments. DUMB racist comments.
First, the second most-researched terms when you type her name is “origins” : well, her family is Guadelupiean. So pretty French. And even if her parents were from foreign countries, who cares ?
And now, tweets about how blacks should be banished from the competition… Are you serious ? I hate people, sometimes.
BUT THERE’S NO RACISM IN EUROPE
Hahaha.. Whoever says there’s no racism in Europe is probably white.
Seriously. I see people say that shit all the time and I’m like, “nnno, we imported that shit from YOU, ASSHOLES”
she talmbout black people don’t come close to whites when a black woman just won a beauty competition in a majority white country but I’m sleep
WHO NEEDS A FUCKING ALARM CLOCK WHEN YOUR IMMIGRANT PARENTS ARE ON THE PHONE WITH SOMEONE FROM THEIR NATIVE COUNTRY

THE ONE PLAYING GUITAR AND CEILING CAT THO

I HAVEN’T SEEN THIS IN SUCH A LONG TIME
oh look it’s back
Tom Riddle hit the floor with a mundane finality, his body feeble and shrunken, the white hands empty, the snakelike face vacant and unknowing. Voldemort as dead, killed by his own rebounding curse, and Harry stood with two wands in his hand, staring down at his enemy’s shell.
In 1937 two women caused a car accident by wearing shorts in public for the first time
In 1937 a careless driver caused an accident when he took his eyes off the road to ogle 2 women wearing shorts in public for the first time.
fucking thank you
Reminder that while the concept of virginity is technically a social construct, your sexual debut is still allowed to be special to you, and you are still allowed to wait and want to make it meaningful, and your self-perception is still allowed to change after you have sex. Just as long as you’re doing these things for yourself, and not because someone told you that you should.
You do you.
