“…she stopped paying close attention to his words and when at red lights, examined the rain drops spattering on the windshield so intently that she almost stared right through them. Each drop seemed stuck on the glass, until another drop landed on it and they rolled down the window together, ending in a climactic splash.”

I post and reblog: things I think are pretty, things that intrigue me, things I'm a fan of, and things I care about.
Common themes include: books, writing, movies, more books, cozy beds, breakfasts, Doctor Who, Sherlock, feminist issues, and occasional pieces of my life.
they only let us narrate yogurt commercials.
Go watch In a World, it’s all about this!
This post is eveeeeeeeerything
#YesAllWomen is trending on Twitter right now.
This is very important.
Right now, men just need to shut up, read these and learn. We HAVE to do better.
Or ya know, that the immigrant is willing to work for less money. Which is a horrible thing to do to someone, to pay them less than the already shitty minimum wage we have in this country, and it is still a failing, but to say that these blue collar working class people weren’t very good at these jobs and that’s why they are now jobless is disgusting and shows a true misunderstanding of the situation we’re in and why we can’t get ourselves out of it and back to being a prosperous nation.
It also shows that this girl doesn’t understand the exploitation of immigrant workers at all.
But yeah ok, let’s reblog 2 tweets and act like someone just got SEW BURNED.
Another problem: implying that lack of knowledge of a foreign language (English) indicates a lesser ability and so that’s why it’s “funny” that such a person could “steal” a job.
That is, saying “lol, even people who don’t know English can do your job” is not very hidden shorthand for “lol you’re even stupider than people whose stupidity I measure by their lack of English fluency”.
FIVE YEARS HE WAITED FIVE YEARS
I think the “women are mysterious” thing can also come from:
1) Women actually being quite clear, but not telling men what they want to hear. ”She said she doesn’t want to talk to me? So many mixed messages and confusing signals!”
2) Women not having cheat codes. ”I tried being nice, and she didn’t have sex with me. I tried being an asshole, and she didn’t have sex with me. Come on, there’s got to be some kind of solution to this puzzle!”
3) Women not being a hive mind. ”First a woman told me that she likes guys with big muscles. Then the very next day a woman told me she thinks muscles aren’t attractive at all. Make up your mind, women!”
4) An individual woman doing something confusing, and instead of asking “why is she doing this now?” men ask “why do women always do this?”
eheheh i get it
