Spend 7 minutes of your life watching this show on gendered marketing

This is brilliant. I specifically buy razors and shaving cream marketed to men because it’s at least 30% cheaper in the US, and yet the quality is way better.

s t o p

my body is not your plaything.
it cannot be experimented upon—
one “oh-so-innocent” touch leaves a girl shocked
into
silence
.

i can feel the after-gooseflesh and
ghost fingers and I feel
unclean.

no matter how many times i run my hands under the tap,
or douse myself with peach-scented body wash

it’s there

the trust
splinters
and the eyes stare cautiously; always

please do not touch me because
unlike merchandise
if a girl breaks,
no amount of money will be able to buy her back;
pay the debt

shiver

$

a person is worth more than dollars.

you cannot put a price on their smile as they accept their first kiss,
as their baby niece’s sigh brings tears to their eyes

no amount of pounds or rupees could even measure their wonder
as they gaze up at a starry sky…
and their wanderlust, their mountain-trekking-hunger
when thunder creaks their bones and makes their hair stand on end

we don’t have price tags dangling on our necks like twisted jewellery for a reason:

bringing chicken soup to all the homeless,
sending a teddy bear across a country to console a child:

now, who can put a number on humanity?
our hearts are too big and too full.

Hitler flirting with Eva Braun.

I don’t know how this makes me feel

It makes me feel very uncomfortable

You know what’s so uncomfortable about this? It shows that perhaps one of the most evil men in history, was a human being. That, on occasion, he could be nice, even flirty. That’s not all. You want to see evil people as evil, screaming horrible stuff over a desk with 20 microphones with 20, 000 people saluting them. The evil is clear and recognizable then. This shows a completely different image, it scares you because that means that evil isn’t a stereotype, that evil is not recognizable, that evil could be anyone. It scares you because this shows that could be lurking inside anyone and you’ll never ever know. Maybe in you? 

i reblogged this literally like 2 minutes ago, but i want this version because of that comment ^

That comment is one of my favorite post commentaries, because it’s completely right. People aren’t inherently evil. Like good, it’s a role they grow and live into. We have just as much potential to destroy as this man exhibited. And it’s a very eye opening experience to realize that.

does anyone even remember that one time hitler attended that luncheon between world leaders, some guests of which even included china’s socialist leader as well as Stalin. And then when they were ordering, everyone was gladly ordering impressive dishes one after the other, but Hitler placed an order for barley tea and a pheasant (considered a peasant’s meal by standard). When he was questioned as to why he would order something like this in something as grand as a world leader’s congress, he replied,

“I don’t smoke when my people cannot smoke, and I cannot eat when my people are going hungry.”

He wasn’t evil for its own sake, let’s try to remember that despite the countless murders, but for a moment, he did actually believe he was doing something for the good of his countrymen.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE

No, he’s right. Hitler, though extremely wrong in his views, did everything for what he thought would better the lives of his people. It was wrong. It was disgustingly, horribly wrong. But he did not do it because it was evil and he was evil. He did it because he believed it would help Germany and those who needed a better life. Those who don’t understand or even try to understand the human brain will always label men like him as ‘evil’ because it is easier to accept. But he wasn’t ‘evil.’ He felt love and loyalty and responsibilities. He simply took these aspects and morphed them into a twisted, violent thing. 

Tumblr is probably the only place we could have this conversation and not be lynched.

“Every villain is a hero in his own mind.”


― Tom Hiddleston

This post speaks to an ultimate truth. Everyone believes that they’re right in what they do, and that they’re doing good. If someone knew that what they were doing was wrong, they wouldn’t do it.

No one on this post is defending him, what he did was beyond unspeakable, but we realize that he thought he was doing the right thing, however perverted and horrible it was.

"There is a fundamental concern that the content of such magazines normalizes the treatment of women as sexual objects. We are not killjoys or prudes who think that there should be no sexual information and media for young people. But are teenage boys and young men best prepared for fulfilling love and sex when they normalize views about women that are disturbingly close to those mirrored in the language of sexual offenders?" - Dr. Peter Hegarty

vivre

The world is so big—I want to be a big person among humans. I want to be remembered by the people living on a billion-year-old star. I want to be acknowledged by the wise, rocky Earth. I want to leave a mark on an unchangeable landscape. I want to live on.
