i just imagine piper attacking everyone’s hair and leaving them with little plaits and feathers and it’s like, oh, Piper’s been here then

Gender equality not only liberates women but also men from prescribed gender stereotypes. —Emma Watson (via yvesmcqueen)
The more I have spoken about feminism, the more I have realized that fighting for women’s rights has too often become synonymous with man-hating. If there is one thing I know for certain, it is that this has to stop. For the record, feminism, by definition, is the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes. —Emma Watson (via washingtonpost)

a fate worse than death

a/n: in which i am a horrible person for not writing, yet, i found this little gem rachel ( beckendorph ) tagged me in a hella long time ago - so of course i had to write it because it gave me the feels and i want you guys to feel the feels too. hope you guys like it!

(because a fate worse than death is experiencing it and living to tell the tale)

It has been merely hours after they’d rescued Percy and Annabeth from the depths of Tartarus. When he first laid eyes upon their battered bodies and bloodied clothes, Frank could immediately tell that they were broken. There was just really no other way to describe them. The haunted, ghastly dull light that shined behind their eyes gave it away almost immediately, no matter how hard they tried to shield it from the others.

Frank knows that look all too well.

It’s the same one that his mother wore when she came from her first tour - complete with a broken arm from protecting her squad from a surprise attack in Israel. Her heart-wrenching sobs kept him up for nights on end, and it broke him to hear her - Captain Emily Zhang, his mother, his tether, his rock - break down like that.

Something like war (or in Percy’s case, surviving Tartarus) is not something easily forgotten.

It leaves bruises behind, altering your life forever. You can’t ever be the same again. Frank knows this also.

And oh, the memories that come along with it will completely ruin your soul.

Racism in advertising.
This is what we’re told constantly. That our brown skin is ugly and that we can only be beautiful if we’re white.

A bleaching deodorant I can understand. My underarms get dark from shaving during the summer. The rest of this is all the result of colorism/shadeism/antiblackness period

In Asian cultures white skin is preferred to darker skin due to ancient reasons. 

Before it was said that if you had dark skin, you probably worked in the fields all day long, under the intense hot sun, which caused you to tan. If you had fair skin, you were probably wealthy and didn’t need to do labor-intensive work. 

So skin color was an indication of wealth status.

This isn’t an excuse saying “Hey, emphasis on skin whitening is okay!” I just thought this was an interesting tidbit I learned a while back.

Sam Pepper handcuffs himself to women on the street, refusing to release one woman until she kisses him

jean-luc-gohard:

celebreceipts:

In January, Sam Pepper uploaded a video called “How To Get A Girlfriend Easy” in which he sneaks up behind or beside unsuspecting women on the street and handcuffs them to himself. He then tells them they’re “his girlfriend now.”

When one victim reacts furiously, saying “No! I don’t know you! Take it off!” and demands that he remove the handcuffs, he refuses and replies with “We’re dating now.” She tries again, “Look, I don’t know where you’re from, but we don’t do this in America. Take this off,” while fighting with the cuffs. He refuses again, insisting they’re “going on a date.” She then tells him that she’s married, to which he says “No, you’re married to me now,” and refuses yet again to remove the handcuffs.

At the end of the video, another woman is pleading with him to undo the handcuffs, and he refuses to until she kisses him on the lips. Pepper appears to think the entire scenario is hilarious at best and endearingly misguided at worst, while the women being “pranked” are visibly livid, terrified, and profoundly uncomfortable.

NONE OF THESE THINGS ARE PRANKS.

We need to stop calling assault by white men on men of color and women of all races “pranks,” because it makes them seem lighthearted and fun, not like the violent criminal acts they are.
