So sick of people who pretend their problem is with the word “feminism” rather than the concept of gender equality.
let me talk about this for a second
- No because I love men
- I’m 50 percent feminine and 50 percent masculine
- The idea of ‘raise women to power, take the men away from the power’ is never going to work out
- My biggest thing is really sisterhood more than feminism.
I believe that people who are not feminists are one of two things.
1. People who have misunderstood what feminism really is about
I think Shailene Woodley belongs in the first category, because even though she says that she isn’t a feminist, everything she explains is basically feminism.
"The idea of ‘raise women to power, take the men away from the power’ is never going to work out because you need balance"
Feminism is not taking men away from power and controlling the world, it’s about equality, finding that balance she’s talking about. She mentions how it’s amazing to see strong female characters in film, and how important it is to show the audience that women can come together and fight for a common cause.
The word “feminism” can be very misleading, but basically it’s about equality for everyone, not just women. I don’t think Shailene Woodley understands that.
This morning my daughter, who is nearly four, saw the stretch marks on my hips and stomach. She ran her hands over them and asked what they were.
“I got them when I grew up,” I said, “and a few more when I had you.” I grinned down at her. “They’re my stripes. You’ll get stripes too when you grow up.”
She was overjoyed. “Really?”
I think she’s in her room now, pretending to be a tiger.
This is what we need to teach.

Guys you don’t understand how awesome this is. This pattern happens everywhere. It happens on flowers and pinecones absolutely vegetables, it happens all around you. If you don’t think that’s like the realist shit ever i don’t understand you.

Last time we visited the Department of Awesome Natural Wonders we drank in the majesty of one of the oldest, tallest trees in the world. Today we’d like to direct your attention to the forest floor. Photographer Steve Axford lives in the Northern Rivers area of New South Wales, Australia and spends his time seeking out and photographing rare plants, animals, fungi, and sometimes even people. Axford has traveled to remote locations in order to document - sometimes for the very first time - some of the world’s strangest and most diverse mushrooms and other fungi. His stunning photos capture their incredibly varied and alien forms as well as their astonishing beauty.
Mae Martin is the best! :)

how do you feel about trying to save pandas from going extinct? there are a lot of species that are going extinct because of humans that we could/should be saving, but pandas seem to me like they're going extinct because they're an evolutionary dead end. it doesn't help that we're destroying their habitat, but would they have been perfectly fine as a species if we hadn't come along? — anathematique
I’m going to come clean with the world right now: on a measurable scale for how much I care about endangered and threatened species, the panda is towards the bottom of the chart.
I’m always going to fight for the underdog and in the world of securing funding for and raising awareness about critically endangered species, the underdogs are the invertebrates, insects, plants, and reptiles that may not garner the most public attention but have much more significant impacts on their ecosystems.Nobody talks about the plight of the North American unionid bivalves, but more than seventy species of unionid bivalves are threatened or endangered. Tens of thousands of tons of these bivalves were historically farmed every year to support the pearl industry, their shells coveted and used as buttons and in jewelry. As filter-feeders they work as a naturally occurring water filtration system, keeping our rivers and lakes clean with absolutely no negative impact on human activity whatsoever… but you’ll probably never see a unionid bivalve as the centerpiece for a global conservation campaign, which is a shame.*
In my personal opinion, the amount of publicity and funding that goes into assisting pandas to reproduce perhaps could be more evenly distributed to those species in which their environments subsist and rely. On the other hand, if it takes a cuddly, photogenic critter to get the general public interested and invested in preserving just one aspect of our natural world, then I’m not going to complain.
*I’m all about having/selling posters that say I STAND WITH UNIONID BIVALVES and donating the proceeds to various conservation groups but let’s talk about that one later
