“A white man is promoted: He does good work, he deserved it.
A white woman is promoted: Whose dick did she suck?
A man of color is promoted: Oh, great, I guess we have to “fill quotas” now.
A woman of color is promoted: j/k. That never happens.”—Accurate as fuck comment (via supernatasha)
once one of my best friends told me that i was wearing too much makeup (i was wearing lip gloss and mascara) and told me that i should have a look that’s more like my other friend (who wears a full face of makeup every day) as she looks more natural and that moment made me realize that men truly do not understand what makeup looks like
“…while “the female gaze” is attracted by things like a naked, sweaty Chris Evans or Idris Elba, it’s also attracted by things like: men smiling in sweaters, men crying (DON’T LIE TUMBLR), barefoot fragile Sebastian Stan in the rain on Political Animals, men holding babies, men speaking foreign languages, Mark Ruffalo, and a whole bunch of weird stuff on Ao3 that I don’t even wanna get into. And that’s just “the female gaze as it pertains to men.””—
Derek:what does that— there is a kanima RIGHT THERE
Stiles:do u like batman?
Stiles:it's a simple question. everyone knows if they like batman or not
Stiles:i mean, you have a lot in common—
Derek:YES I like batman
Stiles:okay, cage match between chuck norris and a honeybadger: who wins?
Derek:that's really stupid. i'm not going to answer that
Stiles:fine. but I think we both know who would win
Stiles:I Spy with my little eye...something...GREEN!
Derek:is it the kanima?
Stiles:look at that! you're really good at this game!
Derek:i'll show you something i'm really good at...
Stiles:okay okay I Spy with my little eye....something blue!
Derek:howabout your face after i strangle you
Stiles:close, but actually, it was the water, so...not really that close actually. and that's pretty hurtful since I'm the guy making sure it's not you who's the blue one. in case you forgot about that
Derek:i'm not playing this game anymore
Stiles:okay would you rather...lick jackson's foot or french kiss scott?
Derek:i would rather drown than keep listening to you
Stiles:fine. you come up with something to do. I'm all for singalongs, just throwing that out there
Derek:this isn't a road trip, stiles
Stiles:well, i've never been on one, so i wouldn't know
Derek:you're lucky, then. they suck. getting stuck in the back seat next to your evil big sister all day is terrible
Stiles:...yeah? that bad?
Derek:no. it was actually pretty okay
Stiles:so i think that if we survive this, you should let me drive your car as a reward
Derek:i would sooner drown than let you get behind the wheel of my car
Stiles:but if you're dead, you won't be able to stop me
Derek:I would come back to haunt you forever
Stiles:forever and ever? you promise?
Stiles:you know, I could have been getting a thank you kiss from Lydia right now for being her knight in shining armor
Stiles:shut up. you're the damsel in distress here. you should be thanking me
Derek:I'm not going to kiss you
Stiles:I never said you should! you're the only one who went there
“When I was in college, a teacher once said that all women live by a ‘rape schedule.’ I was baffled by the term, but as she went on to explain, I got really freaked out. Because I realized that I knew exactly what she was talking about. And you do too. Because of their constant fear of rape (conscious or not), women do things throughout the day to protect themselves. Whether it’s carrying our keys in our hands as we walk home, locking our car doors as soon as we get in, or not walking down certain streets, we take precautions. While taking precautions is certainly not a bad idea, the fact that certain things women do are so ingrained into our daily routines is truly disturbing. It’s essentially like living in a prison - all the time. We can’t assume that we’re safe anywhere: not on the streets, not in our homes. And we’re so used to feeling unsafe that we don’t even see that there’s something seriously fucked upt about it.”—
“Don’t fool yourself. English isn’t inherently superior, or easier to learn, or more sonically pleasing. Its international usage comes from forceful assimilation and legacy of colonialistic injection. It isn’t a deed that one should take pride in.”—my uncle left this comment on his friend’s Facebook status, a white British man who was bragging about how easy it is to be a native English speaker when trekking to different nations.
