I heartily endorse this comic.

more than two/ polyamory/ jealousy: practice (via inventinghope)
I sort of agree with this, but as I’ve said before, often times “rules” are just a convenient way of saying “If you did this, it would make me sad” - and that’s not necessarily controlling, that’s communicating. And if you’re in a relationship with someone, you each deserve to know what the other finds upsetting.
“If you did this, I would be sad,” is indeed communicating. Which is very different from making a rule. An order of magnitude different.
I completely agree that partners should know about each other, and definitely should know what makes them happy and sad.
Kintsugi—the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold. The idea behind it is that the piece becomes more beautiful and valuable because it has been broken and has a history.
I will have worth, even though I am brokem right now.
I love this so much.
I really, really like this…
You not only have worth despite being broken - you are worth even more because you have been broken.

Ladies and Gentlemen: rape culture.
You know, the one that gives housewives/full-time mothers a pension— wages for housework?
It’s ONLY A HUGE VICTORY FOR FEMINISM, SOCIALISM, AND WOMEN OF COLOR. Not a big deal or anything. Tumblr is mysteriously silent about this.
Along with establishing new working hours, the law prohibits unfair dismissal, outsourcing, guarantees the right to work for both women and people with disabilities and increases maternity leave.
Under the law, Venezuela now has the world’s third-longest maternity leave scheme. Mothers are entitled to six weeks pre-natal leave, and 20 post-natal. Fathers are also entitled to two weeks paternal leave.
Under the law, the same conditions apply to parents who adopt a child under three years old.
All workers are also now entitled to retirement pensions, including full-time mothers and the self-employed.
BUT OMG AREN’T THESE PEOPLE JUST EVIL AND MOOCHING OFF THE SYSTEM?! BOOTSTRAPS! #’MURICA
Encouraging family (and thus, populace) growth. What will be interesting is how the culture adapts. I can see the great positives already highlighted here, but also great valleys like pockets of society that tell young women to stay home, that it will be ok since they can get paid any way.
I remain hopeful, though.
And here, friends, is a perfect example of how the patriarchy sets its sights on hurting men too. This guy posts a heartfelt, pretty emotional status about how his eyes have been opened to sexism in a way that has really affected him, and what is this outpouring reduced to? “UR SO GONNA GET LAID BRO LOL.”
Because when men have profound feelings or thoughts, it’s TOTALLY just a front to get laid. Not, you know, profound feelings or thoughts.

The word you’re looking for is typecast.
