don't get too carried away
Here’s a friendly reminder:

-You cannot be sexist toward men. Sexism is based on a system of oppression. You CAN be discriminatory, rude, inconsiderate, and/or prejudiced against men but you CANNOT be sexist toward them.

-You cannot be racist towards white people. Racism is based on a system of oppression. You CAN be discriminatory, rude, inconsiderate, and/or prejudiced against white people but you CANNOT be racist toward them.

This is not difficult.

I see this post all the time but why come nobody ever talks about the girl that fucked up the middle S like someone drag her too please

Putting aside the comment about the girl near the bottom of the middle ‘s’, the youngster that is forming the accented ‘u’ might just be spelling the word Jesús (which is a variation used in some Hispanic cultures). So I’m sure the youngster is quite content to stay where he is :)

"favourite book…"

Just realized that this might very well happen in the near future:

interviewer: so, what is your favourite book?

me: …well, I read this slightly racy fanfction where the characters were all baristas… it was based on Les Mis so that counts, right…?

interviewer…not really…

me: …but…its like Les Mis, if you squint…its a classic in its own way…

Doodle by bored medieval school boy
This 15th-century doodle is found in the lower margin of a manuscript containing Juvenal’s Satires. This classical text was a popular device to teach young students - kids - morals. The medieval teacher Alexander Nequam stated: “Let the student read the satirists […] so that he may learn even in his younger days that vices are to be shunned” (quote here). Spoken like a true optimist, because this page shows what young school boys like to do with rules: disobey them. And so in stead of studying the student who used this book drew a funny doodle in the lower margin: a figure with a flower in one hand and what appears to be a pipe in the other. Could it be his teacher? Doodles are of all ages but those produced by bored school kids are the most entertaining.
Pic: Carpentras, Bibliothèque municipale, MS 368 (here). Here is another example of school kids doodling.

Such a great tumblr, follow and you are bound to enjoy these discoveries

VR madness

reached a point where an answer to the question of “which is the wrong statement” is disqualified because apparently, it is too wrong. 



Verbal Reasoning — YOU ARE REASONING WRONG!

the VR solutions and explanations are too much for me at this point. The person who writes the solution sounds like a sulky, but eloquent, 5-years old trying to prove that no matter what they are right and you are wrong. 

edit: Lisa. What are words? Nope.

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. 

+1 on the razors and shaving cream. I buy everything I can get away with from the men’s side of stores. It’s cheaper and the quality is better.

In celebration of opening our new etsy, Bright Pin Design, we’ve decided to do a giveaway to showcase our wares and to give the lovely people of tumblr a chance to win something!

First Place: A choker of your choice, plus a 25% off store discount code!
Second Place: A plushie of your choice!
Third Place: A 30% off coupon code!

Here are the rules:

  • You don’t need to be following! It’d be cool if you did to keep up with new items, but this isn’t exclusive just to our followers.
  • Keep your ask box open! We need to be able to let you know if you’ve won.
  • You need to be comfortable with giving us your address, unless you’ve won the coupon code. Which is, of course, digital.
  • We will ship to anywhere in the world! If you’re outside the UK, though, please be patient as shipping can take a while.
  • You must be 18 or older, or have parental permission. This isn’t our rule—it’s tumblr’s.
  • You’re welcome to like and reblog as many times as you want, but we’ll only count one like and one reblog per user, as multiple reblogs don’t show up in the notes so we have no way to count them.
  • The three winners will be selected by a random number draw.
  • Giveaway is open until July 10th!
  • Once we’ve gotten in contact with the winners, we will ship the items! If a winner does not respond within a week, we will redraw!
