there were some eos lip balms in the easter clearance stuff at target so i bought like 9 because it’s one of the few lip balms that i don’t hate. sadly im not super into either of the scents (blueberry acai & summer fruit, i prefer pomegranate or melon) but still 50% off lip balm is pretty coooool.

The NYPD tried to start a hashtag outpouring of positive memories with their police force. 

If this were ever a bad idea, it was probably the worst idea for arguably the most corrupt police force in America.

  • you say: i always have to tip toe around you
  • it means: why can't i say oppressive shit around you? no one else calls out my racist jokes or sexist undertones
  • you say: you're always looking for an argument
  • it means: why do you stand up for yourself? your pain is really putting a damper on my personal comfort
  • you say: but i didn't mean it like that
  • it means: i'm pretty sure my intentions negate any oppressions i enable through the things i say and do
  • STOP THAT SHIT

Our data finds that on weekends, dads find more time for leisure than moms.


Dad’s “find” more leisure time, eh?  Like, it was hidden under the rug and the mom’s didn’t look hard for it?
"Fathers take full advantage of the weekends." 
“With moms scaling back their time for child care..”
Ugh. I want people to pay attention to how these discussions are framed.  Men don’t magically “find” more time for leisure; this implies that if women take less time for leisure, they are doing something wrong.  It also ignores the fact that part of the reason dads can have more leisure time is that the mom’s are watching the children. Does no one realize if the dad’s watched the kids more, the moms would have more leisure time?  
No because it’s too busy implying that if mothers do just that, they are somehow neglecting their children.  How does one “scale back their time” for parenting anyway? When fathers go play golf for 8 hours on a Saturday, is that “scaling back” too? Oh wait, it’s called “taking advantage of the weekends”!  ::eye-roll::
This whole article is massively irritating.



Once again proving that if you’re asking questions a certain way, and only that way, you’re gonna get the answers you expect.Of course dads find more time for leisure, they have moms to take care of the kids….see also: dads babysit, mothers raise.

Surprisingly, perfectionists are often procrastinators, as they can tend to think “I don’t have the right skills or resources to do this perfectly now, so I won’t do it at all.”

this is an important thing to remember.

dear caretakers of children: stop telling kids “I don’t care who started it!”. you’re teaching children to ignore unequal power balances. that leads to legitimate belief in things like reverse racism, misandry, heterophobia, etc. you’re teaching children that it’s wrong to retaliate when they are wronged. “who started it” is very, very relevant.

THANK YOU

lmao @ people pretending they care about cultural appropriation but then saying it was okay bc they didn’t see a problem with it

if you think it’s only cultural appropriation when a white person says it is then you need to sew your mouth shut until you can communicate without prioritizing whiteness.
