“Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.”

Oh hi me
I’m so so glad that I dont have to put up with the response ‘you’ll make a good wife some day’ whenever I have to make my boss a snack.
“I’m not responsible for some perverted 45 year old dad lusting after me because I have a sparkly dress on and a big ass for a teenager. And if you think I am, then maybe you’re part of the problem.”

YouTube comments aren’t “just the Internet.” They’re not the product of a group of otherwise nice guys who suddenly become evil when they wear a veil of anonymity. YouTube comments are actually a nightmarish glimpse into the sexist attitudes that define the fabric of our own existence in the “real world,” a world that, like YouTube, is owned and dominated by men. The most terrifying gift that the Internet has given us is that it’s shown us how men honestly perceive the world: as a place where women exist exclusively for their sexual pleasure.
In the wake of VidCon, and as more and more women start speaking up about the harassment they face online, it’s time to start realizing that our narrative of progress is deeply flawed. Things aren’t getting better for women on the Internet; they’re deteriorating and ignoring the problem amounts to being complicit in it.”

Went swimming yesterday and baby ducks swam right past our face and it was a bit magical.
Maybe the best sarcastic conversation in tv history
This is my argument too. ‘Women aren’t as good at football’ ‘women aren’t as good as guitarists’ ‘women don’t do politics’ fuck you. You’ve had hundreds of years to perfect how a man should do something, hundreds of years of only seeing men do something, you’re brainwashed by a patriarchal society so don’t you tell me ‘women aren’t as good’ because we’ve had to fight and win our way to what we’ve accomplished, men have just fucking coasted.
