i may not be that funny or athletic or good looking or smart or talented i forgot where i was going with this
Can we talk about how Hairspray is a story where a not-conventionally-attractive girl gets the hot guy in the end without having to Become “Pretty.” Because we need more stories like that.
THIS FUCKING MOVIE THOUGH.
JUST WATCH IT. WATCH IT AGAIN. WATCH IT THREE MOTHERFUCKING TIMES BECAUSE I BET YOUR COTTON SOCKS THERE’S A WITTY ONE-LINER IN THERE THAT YOU’LL HAVE MISSED
IT IS A STORY ABOUT A CONFIDENT YOUNG WOMAN WHO DON’T NEED NO MAN BUT GETS ONE ANYWAY WHILE SHE DANCES HER ASS OFF AND SINGS LIKE A FUCKIN BEAST WHILE CALLING OUT RACIST BULLSHIT WITH QUEEN LATIFAH
IT HAS JOHN TRAVOLTA IN DRAG
IT HAS A CHARACTER GROWTH OF A PLUS-SIZE CHARACTER WHERE SHE DOESN’T FUCKING LOSE WEIGHT SHE BECOMES AMAZINGLY CONFIDENT IN HERSELF AND DOES WHAT’S DAMN RIGHT
I SHIT YOU NOT THIS MOVIE WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE

Having a best friend from the opposite gender is the best thing ever, seriously.
update: until they fall in love with you and screw your friendship up.
Sorry to reblog from the source, but I thought the chain of comments was rather unnecessary. All that needs to be said is that this documentary examines gender inequality and how patriarchy contributes negatively to our society.
This is a feminist issue.
And anyone on Tumblr who’s too close-minded to recognize it as such due to a nonsensical blanketed hatred of men’s issues need to re-evaluate their motives.
THESE ARE REAL AND HORRIBLE MALE ISSUES CAUSED BY THE PATRIARCHY. IF YOURE FEMINIST, THESE SHOULD ANGER YOU. IF YOU’RE NOT, HERES ANOTHER REASON TO SUPPORT THE MOVEMENT.
have I already reblogged this? don’t give a fuck.
The patriarchy hurts everyone.
I WANNA MENTION THIS BECAUSE EVERY TIME SOMEONE MENTIONS THIS THING ABOUT SUICIDE I FEEL I SHOULD BUT IN
MORE WOMEN ATTEMPT SUICIDE
MORE MEN SUCCEED
Women are more likely to use non-lethal methods such as pills while men tend to use firearms.
Something to keep in mind.
I need feminism because the father of my children thinks his depression is invalid because he is male.
you know since “fuck” and other swears have become such a regular part of my vocabulary they’ve begun to lose impact
so instead I’ve come to realize I’m using non swear words like “heck” for some sort of twisted ironic emphasis
I have come full circle
Looking at your grades at the end of the year like
OH MY GOD WHY
when u can’t figure out how to reblog something because of someone’s theme
when a good url is taken by a shitty blog
Oh my god youre straight? I had no idea. You seem normal to me. Did you know that Sara is straight to? You two should totally hook up. I cant believe youre straight. You could be my straight best friend. We could go to football games together. Itll be so much fun. So like how long have you been straight? Youre whole life!? No way.
now you have a transparent picture to drag to the inbox button to make it look like you have messages
this is the saddest thing i have ever seen
