SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT

So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time?  Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.

I will never not reblog this

This is true.  Cats that have been neutered take up resources that would otherwise be used for breeding studs or queens, thus making it more difficult for breedable cats to make their way into a colony.
TNR is a very effective way of managing urban/suburban feral cat colonies, and if you can find a local one to support, I recommend doing so.

Further PSA: This does not apply to cats in Australia. The RSPCA is still coming up with a position on this strategy here, but it is unlikely it will work in an Australian setting.
The greatest problem stray cats cause in Australia is a threat to native species who have no natural defenses against a predator like cats. This is doubly true for feral cats living away from urban centres, who cause massive damage to the local ecosystem.

Christine de Pizan (1364- c. 1430)
Art by April Babcock (tumblr)
Christine de Pizan is one of the best known writers of the medieval period, yet if not for circumstances beyond her control she might never have picked up a pen.  The daughter of an Italian scientist at the court of Charles V of France, Christine was given a classical education before her marriage at the age of fifteen to a royal secretary named Etienne du Castel.  When she was 25, her beloved husband died in an epidemic.  As her father had already passed away, Christine found herself responsible for the care of not only herself and her two children, but also her mother and an orphaned niece.
Christine began writing love ballads that caught the attention of wealthy patrons who enjoyed both her poetry and the novelty of a female writer.  Christine wrote hundreds of poems, many on commission for specific nobles, and this work allowed her to support her family and clear the debts left after her husband’s death.
Christine’s most famous work, The Book of the City of Ladies (1405), is an impassioned defense of women.  It challenged misogyny by creating a symbolic city of righteous women.  The women profiled include historical figures such as Zenobia and Sappho, pagan goddesses such as Isis and Minerva, women from the Hebrew Bible such as Deborah and the unnamed Woman of Valor (Proverbs 31), and Christian saints such as the Virgin Mary and St. Lucy.  Christine’s book was a testimony to the accomplishments of women and argued for wider access to education for women. 
While The Book of the City of Ladies is primarily about female achievement, Christine also included an anti-rape message.  As a character in the book, Christine says “I am therefore troubled and grieved when men argue that many women want to be raped and that it does not bother them at all to be raped by men even when they verbally protest…”  Lady Rectitude, one of Christine’s guides in The Book of the City of Ladies, responds “Rest assured, dear friend, chaste ladies who live honestly take absolutely no pleasure in being raped. Indeed, rape is the greatest possible sorrow for them. Many upright women have demonstrated that this is true with their own credible examples…”
In 1418, Christine retired to a convent in Poissy.  At the convent she wrote one final poem which she dedicated to Joan of Arc.  It is the only known French language work about Joan of Arc written during Joan’s lifetime.

WHY GIRLS LIKE JERKS

reblog and I’ll marry you

TYPICAL YOUTUBER WHITE BOYS SPEAKING THE ACTUAL TRUTH AND NOT BEING DICKS AND WOW WHAT IS THIS I HAD TO WATCH IT TWICE TO MAKE SURE I WASN’T IMAGINING THINGS WOW

Man, I was worried that they were going to take this in a bad direction, but their single biggest point was something that they kinda concluded towards the end of the video, like they didn’t plan on actually saying this one line: “Really nice guys don’t call themselves Nice Guys.” Wonderful. 

Guys who are claiming to be nice guys are usually looking for something in return so they’re not genuinely being nice.

THATS IT
I FOUND MY HUSBAND
THE SEARCH IS OVER HERE HE IS, WORLD

THE ANSWER IS NO UNLESS YOU ARE THIS MAN

No in all seriousness though, I’m so glad to hear men acknowledge this.

You aren’t single because you’re “too nice.” You’re single because you’re an entitled, passive-aggressive piece of shit who thinks that women owe you sex for treating them like people. You’re even more of a jerk than the guys you whine about, but too much of a delusional coward to own up to it.

You are not nice. You are a predator. There’s this thing called coercive rape, it’s when you use guilt or other non-physical means to corner somebody into sleeping with you. And guess what, you “nice guys” thrive off of that tactic.
But nah you held the door open for her so you totally earned the right to stick your dick in her. Such a gentleman oh yes.

Fuck you.
Except not, because you don’t deserve to ever get laid. Prick.

If any of you are not going to watch this because of what you think it will contain, I will assure you that this is the best and these guys get it.
