"There will come a time when all of us are dead. All of us. There will come a time when there are no human beings remaining to remember that anyone ever existed or that our species ever did anything. There will be no one left to remember Aristotle or Cleopatra, let alone you. Everything that we did and built and wrote and thought and discovered will be forgotten and all of this will have been for naught. Maybe that time is coming soon and maybe it is millions of years away, but even if we survive the collapse of our sun, we will not survive forever. There was time before organisms experienced consciousness, and there will be time after. And if the inevitability of human oblivion worries you, I encourage you to ignore it. God knows that’s what everyone else does.

|E: Something else is going to happen other than this Powderpuff thing, as punishment for you cutting class. I promise you, your mom and I will let you know what it is when we figure out what it is.
J: Yea, that’s understood, and when you figure out what my punishment is I’ll be in my bedroom.
E: I don’t want you to be flippant with me, I don’t want you to be flippant. Can I tell you something? No, no look at me. Please don’t do this. Don’t break our trust; don’t take our trust from us.

I was in college and had gotten myself a new apartment. I was trying very hard just to make it through and get my degree and it isn’t easy when you are born below the poverty line, on your own, and you find out financial aid isn’t worth a lot.
I met a guy who seemed so nice and caring. We had…

|what's the difference between an equalist and a feminist?|
An equalist believes that men need just as much liberation as women.
A feminist knows that patriarchy is much more destructive to women and therefore its goals prioritize women.
Essentially, it’s like this:
There’s a man and a woman standing side by side, but the man is taller than the woman. How to get them to the same level?
An equalist would give both of them a pedestal to stand on; a feminist would just give one to the woman. The first method doesn’t fix the problem, but the second method does.
Just want to say further that equalists 1) don’t pay attention to how history has structured our current world, and 2) have a huge bloody entitlement complex. Like men have hated women for thousands of years, but feminism has to prove it’s not man-hating to be legitimated because hating
a genderthe male gender is wrong. It’s disgusting that men think they can or should define what equality is for women.
I used to think there were only 2-3k vegans on Tumblr based on the vegan posts with a lot of notes but now I think the number may be like 4k+.

A small group of nature lovers in southern Ontario enjoy spending weekends watching birds and other wildlife, but lately they’re the ones under watch — by the Canada Revenue Agency.
The Kitchener-Waterloo Field Naturalists, a registered charity, is apparently at risk of breaking tax agency rules that limit so-called political or partisan activities.
Earlier this year, tax auditors sent a letter to the 300-member group, warning about political material on the group’s website.
The stern missive says the group must take appropriate action as necessary “including refraining from undertaking any partisan activities,” with the ominous warning that “this letter does not preclude any future audits.” […]
But longtime member Roger Suffling is speaking up, saying the issue is about democratic freedom and not about arcane tax rules.
"Effectively, they’ve put a gag on us," he said in an interview, noting that the letter arrived just after the club had written directly to two federal cabinet ministers to complain about government-approved chemicals that damage bee colonies.
"You can piece together the timing," said Suffling, an adjunct professor at the University of Waterloo. "The two things are very concurrent."
|You’re going to have people who are going to say ‘Oh, you know like, she just writes songs about her ex-boyfriends’ and I think frankly that’s a very sexist angle to take. No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says it about Bruno Mars. They’re all writing songs about their exes, their current girlfriends, their love-life, and no one raises a red flag there.||Taylor Swift on some peoples views on her songwriting. (x)|
