    "Nobody tells an actor, ‘you’re playing a strong-minded man.’ We assume that men are strong-minded. A strong-minded woman is a different animal."

    Meryl Streep, on being told that she often plays “strong-minded women.”

    "

    When young women are sexually assaulted, we question their pasts and critique their clothing choices, yet rarely ask their attackers to simply be accountable for having no self-control, and no respect for the humanity of the girls they’ve violated.

    When middle school girls post half–naked photos of themselves on Instagram, we vilify and ostracize them as cheap and easy, while ignoring the dozens of young men who mindlessly vote their approval each time, who feed the insecurity, and who perpetuate each degrading act with the click of a mouse.

    When high school girls get jobs at chain restaurants, which require them to expose their body parts to strangers over trays of nachos, we bemoan their lack of humility and class, yet never question the thousands of men who fill these eateries every day; many with daughters the same age as the ones they ogle.

    When women embarrassingly writhe on poles for a few sweaty dollar bills, in dimly lit bars ironically called “Gentlemen’s Clubs”, we heap insults and judgement on them, yet let the many married men who pay both the dancers and the mortgage each month, come and go without blemish or critique.

    Sooner or later, we need to stop letting boys be boys, and we need to challenge them to be men.

    Sooner or later, we need to pull them out of their perpetual adolescence and into adulthood, and ask them to evenly carry the weight of sexual standards.

    Sooner or later, we need to show our young men that the they can actually raise the moral temperature in sexual situations, not reflect them.

    The Friendship Zone is a new tumblr where the three female friends behind Lady Business post gifs, pictures, quotes, essays and links that prove that women like other women. We aim to challenge the widespread belief that women are all engaged in a perpetual cat fight…

Ugh.  I have Mediacom, which if I remember correctly is part of WorldCom which I think was bought by Comcast (?) [can we say “monopoly”?], and I keep waiting for my rates to go up.  Because those “we value you as a long-term customer here are more services you don’t need (and don’t currently use at all, like a land-line) for X dollars a month which will save you money” offers are not appealing.

    If dudes are expected to have a lot of sex

    But ladies are expected to stay virgins until marriage

    But homosexuality is bad

    I’m really confused who dudes are supposed to be having all that sex with

    Guys I got it

    Society is literally telling dudes to go fuck themselves

    I’m sorry I can’t not reblog this
