    Dr. Seuss, a pro-choice advocate who publicly donated to Planned Parenthood and actively sued pro-life organizations for using this as a slogan. Stop using this to justify your bullshit pro-life ideals. Not even the original author of the phrase agrees with you.  (via celestialfucker)

THIS IS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT ACTUALLY
THIS MAKES ME REALLY HAPPY 

he was 100% against preaching to unwilling people, too, and all for bringing religion into the lives of those who wanted it. he would often say that those who pray loudly in front of others were the worst kind of believers

    HERE’S JUST HOW MUCH IT PAYS TO BE CONVENTIONALLY ATTRACTIVE

    We’ve come to expect impossible, even improbable standards of beauty to populate our magazines and our television shows. It’s another thing entirely to find they’ve invaded our workplace.

    Watch Vox’s full video to see the many other ways these unrealistic beauty standards effect where we work.

    Holy schnikes.

    Now add Black to it, 

    And think about how white people are the ones in the hiring positions, 

    And white people never look at us or interact with us for longer than they absolutely HAVE to, 

    So most of us are automatically marked ‘unattractive’ simply because we’re Black, 

    Aaaaaand you end up with a Black unemployment rate that’s over DOUBLE that of the rest of the country, 

    EVEN DURING TIMES OF ECONOMIC PROSPERITY.

    I was immediately thinking about how this impacts Black and Native (and Mexican, as well) people as I was going down through this and then I get through it and BAM, Tashabilities gets it in there.

    In the Q!

    but what does conventionally attractive even mean, does it just mean tall, white, cishet, male (because when women are beautiful or sexually appealing they are told they can’t be smart), and not fat, what even is this conventional beauty that we’re talking about, how were these studies done and off of what basis were they considering beauty?

    I think our society knows what is supposed to be considered “attractive”, even if not everyone is actually attracted to that. That’s why everyone looks like a slightly different variation of the same three women and the same three men in most magazines.

    Take that time by yourself to get to know yourself and rediscover what makes you shine. Don’t surrender yourself to waiting, and don’t stay isolated for too long, because there’s a beautiful you the world is dying to meet.

    Sgt. Thomas McVicar of the Jersey City Police Department shot 22 year old Kwadir Felton, leaving him blind, after Kwadir pulled a gun on him, he claims. Kwadir Felton denied the accusation, stating that he doesn’t even carry guns.

    "I don’t understand!" Felton yelled at a police officer before his mother was removed from the courtroom. "You didn’t have to shoot me in the head for no reason! You trying to charge me with something I didn’t do!"

  8. 10 Signs You're Burning Out -- And What To Do About It

    radiatorsister:

    1. Exhaustion

    A clear sign of burnout is when you feel tired all the time. Exhaustion can be emotional, mental or physical. It’s the sense of not having any energy, of being completely spent.

    2. Lack of Motivation

    When you don’t feel enthusiastic about anything anymore or you no longer have that internal motivation for your work, there’s a good chance you’re experiencing burnout. Other ways this manifests? It may be harder to get going in the morning and more difficult to drag yourself into work every day.

    3. Frustration, Cynicism and Other Negative Emotions

    You may feel like what you’re doing doesn’t matter that much anymore, or you may be disillusioned with everything. You might notice that you feel more generally pessimistic than you used to. While everybody experiences some negative emotions from time to time, it’s important to know when these are becoming unusual for you.

    4. Cognitive Problems

    Burnout and chronic stress may interfere with your ability to pay attention or concentrate. When we’re stressed, our attention narrows to focus on the negative element that we perceive as a threat. In the short term, this helps us deal with the problem at hand, Dr. Ballard says, “but our bodies and brains are designed to handle this in short bursts and then return to normal functioning. When stress becomes chronic, this narrow focus continues for a long time and we have difficulty paying attention to other things.”

    This “fight or flight” tunnel vision can negatively affect your ability to solve problems or make decisions. You might find that you’re more forgetful and have a harder time remembering things.

    5. Slipping Job Performance

    Not sure whether you’re burnt out? Compare your job performance now to your performance in previous years. Because burnout tends to happen over an extended period of time, taking this long-term view might reveal whether you’re in a temporary slump or experiencing more chronic burnout.

    6. Interpersonal Problems at Home and at Work

    This tends to play out in one of two ways: (a) You’re having more conflicts with other people, such as getting into arguments, or (b) you withdraw, talking to your coworkers and family members less. You might find that even when you’re physically there, you’re tuned out.

    7. Not Taking Care of Yourself

    When suffering from burnout, some people engage in unhealthy coping strategies like drinking too much, smoking, being too sedentary, eating too much junk food, not eating enough or not getting enough sleep. Self-medication is another issue and could include relying on sleeping pills to sleep, drinking more alcohol at the end of the day to de-stress or even drinking more coffee to summon up the energy to drag yourself into work in the morning.

    8. Being Preoccupied With Work … When You’re Not at Work

    Even though you might not be working at a given moment, if you’re expending mental energy mulling over your job, then your work is interfering with your ability to recover from the stresses of your day. In order to recover, you need time to yourself after the actual task stops … and time when you stop thinking about that task altogether.

    9. Generally Decreased Satisfaction

    This is the tendency to feel less happy and satisfied with your career and with your home life. You might feel dissatisfied or even stuck when it comes to whatever is going on at home, in the community or with your social activities, Dr. Ballard says.

    10. Health Problems

    Over a long period of time, serious chronic stress can create real health problems like digestive issues, heart disease, depression and obesity.
