21 Pictures That Will Restore Your Faith In Humanity
People aren’t always awful. Sometimes, they’re maybe even just a little bit wonderful. Here are 21 pictures to remind you of that fact .. for more click..
Why You Should Get Drunk Right Now
Because you have to go to a graduation party. Or a baby shower. Or a wedding. Because it’s 90 degrees and you’re evidently expected to wear dress pants or pantyhose. Because there will be people there who will undoubtedly ask you whether you’re still single. Because you’re sick of answering that question. Because you’re sick of answering any question.
Because this is your first summer home from college and everything’s different and sad. Because this is your last summer before college and everything’s going to change in a major way and you can’t pin down your feelings. Because this is just another summer and everything’s the same, just like it always has been.
Because you’re really tired. Because that thing you’ve been working on for five hours is right where it was when you started. Because you can’t write more than one paragraph without getting up for coffee or a cigarette. Because you want to try out the “write drunk, edit sober” thing and see if it works. Because it’s a nice day out and you have friends to drink with. Because it’s a nice day out and all your friends are busy.
Because you want to sit out on a deck in a hat and sundress and pretend to be Daisy Buchanan. Because it’s too humid and lazy to do anything else. Because you don’t want to think about the horrible week you’ve had. Because it’s been three days and they still haven’t called. Because you’re tired of agonizing over whether or not you should call them. Because every once in awhile you like to forget that you are yourself.
Because you need to do something to make The Big Bang Theory actually funny. Because you have too many feelings. Because you miss your best friend. Because you miss your roommates. Because you miss your corner store and your childhood and actually all of a sudden you miss everyone. Because you just happened to catch a rerun of Full House or Clarissa Explains It All and you can’t figure out when things got so hard.
Because they don’t love you anymore. Because you don’t love them anymore, even though you said you always would. Because you’re stalking their Facebook and they look really happy. Because you don’t remember them looking so happy when you were together. Because you promised yourself you wouldn’t think about it and now you’re thinking about it. Because you really want to make yourself cry.
Because you have the whole day free and no one has texted. Because you have the whole day free and everyone texted, but you feel particularly UFSI so screw it. Because at your age, someone already has a PhD in astrophysics and someone has become a well-known composer or contortionist and you’re just sitting there on the couch in your underwear. Because you’re spiraling now. Because you’ll never be good enough for your parents anyway. Because the person you love is too far away.
Because there are about fifteen responsible adult things you should be doing but you don’t feel like doing any of them. Because you have a fancy bottle of wine you were saving for some fancy occasion but whatever. Because you need an excuse to eat McDonald’s. Because you’re watching Mad Men and missing an era you never experienced. Because it’s happy hour. Because you’re sexually frustrated. Because you’re listening to Enya for some reason. Because you’ve decided to pregame brunch.
Because someone just started playing Robyn and you’re getting how you always get when you listen to Robyn. Because you just tried to call them and they changed their number. Because your boyfriend will never be that dude in 50 Shades of Grey. Because existentialism. Because Jack Kerouac. Because it’s your birthday. Because who cares. Because today is just another day and why the hell not.
Margo Maine, Ph.D. (Body Wars)
There was a time that, as a person of the male persuasion, seeing this quote made me really mad. It made me mad that women would assume that I was a rapist; it made me mad that rape was becoming ‘my problem’; it made me mad because, frankly, I didn’t think it was true. I think that this is a really common male attitude when confronted with rape statistics- or, at least, it has been in my purely anecdotal experience.
But now, I know there is no excuse for that. Men need to take responsibility and look at these numbers for what they really are, and what they really, truly represent. Men, don’t be mad at the woman who is justifiably wary that more than half of the men she knows could be her potential rapist. Don’t be mad at that there’s someone trying to rain on your fun, privileged parade where rape is something that only happens on Law & Order. Don’t be mad that you can’t accept that rape is way more common than you think. Most of all, don’t be mad at the woman who was raped and is seeking justice and help for her assault just because you thinks she looks like she was ‘asking for it.’
Be mad at the man who waits in the park to prey on the women who have a right to feel safe in their own communities. Be mad at the man who takes advantage of his drunk girlfriend. Be mad at the man who pushes the issue when his wife isn’t in the mood. Be mad at the man who catcalls, who makes unwelcome advances, who cops a feel.
Don’t be angry at the woman who doesn’t entirely trust you. Be angry at the men who have made her feel that way. Don’t be a part of a problem.
Be a part of the solution.
to my fellow white bio-males: be mad that there are so many men out there who don’t give a shit about consent. DON’T be mad that someone has harshed your mellow with facts; you do not have a right to go through life unchallenged.
