the hunger games aren’t amazingly unique or flawless or anything but I think katniss as a character is very important and i think the media misunderstands
we aren’t in it for the cute boys. we’re in it for katniss. thousands of young girls were introduced to an introverted, angry girl born into poverty and watched her become the savior of the world and the media doesn’t seem to understand that she, as a character, is important to girls. not who she dates, but her
oh god why am I laughing
Oh god. Im not even over the last loki joke i just saw.
Cattle ranchers on Tuesday found a wet, nearly naked man hiding from extreme weather in a guitar case near the town of Muskogee, cold but alive. The man claims he was walking from Gore to Checotah, a distance of over 25 miles, in order to meet a woman. The freezing conditions were not a surprise; the entire state has been on ice since last week. Nevertheless, he set off.
Along the way, he apparently got lost and fell through an icy pond, after which he stripped off his wet and freezing clothes. The man then realized that it can get pretty cold when you’re standing in an icy forest in nothing but a pair of soggy boxer shorts, so he logically decided to spend the night in his guitar case.
He was found the next morning by a couple tending their cattle. They called authorities and found the shed clothes, which by then had frozen solid. He was treated and released upon the world to make more questionable decisions.

This is a very interesting story that fails to answer the most important question: Small man or large guitar case?

Just gonna leave this here…
dont forget in the states :
100% of men can be drafted
0% of women can be drafted.
just gonna leave these here for you guys who are getting pissy over my ‘white privilege’ post
Now, I’m not all anti-social justice, but you certainly can’t ignore these facts.
But let’s take a guess as to why women generally are prohibited from serving on the front lines in warzones, and why they are discouraged from working in the industrial sector? Patriarchal expectations of appropriate roles for men and women based on gender.
Who commits the majority of homicides? Men.
Why are men more likely to commit suicide instead of seeking help for their problems? It’s those pesky patriarchal gender roles again, equating emotions with femininity and therefore weakness, which discourages men from talking about their problems.
As for the custody thing, the majority of custody decisions are agreements made between both parents, which again, are probably overdetermined by patriarchal assumptions about gender that paint women as being more nurturing and therefore better parents than men.
So, although the person who made this clearly wanted to argue that male privilege doesn’t exist, what they actually did was make a pretty good graphic illustrating the ways in which patriarchal expectations and structures within a society hurt men as well as women, which, since feminism is actually aimed at dismantling the patriarchy is why men also need feminism.
