women grow hair on their boobs and their butts and their legs and their arms and their stomachs and their face and really anywhere their genetics decides to have hair and it is perfectly normal what isnt normal is men who have never touched a razor trying to shame women for not looking like a hairless baby

'I do not live in my parents basement because I am a loser or a creep or a pervert' no that is why. I know people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and with more serious illnesses, yet still manage to live a life and maintain a job. Admit it dude, stop lying to yourself and the gullible on tumblr.

thefrogman:

I’m glad you wrote in because it gives me the perfect opportunity to teach you some things. 

Thing the first. 

The severity of an illness falls upon a spectrum. A spectrum is a visual aid that represents two extremes on either end, and an infinite number of values in between. 

Someone may have allergies, but they are not very severe. They may fall here on the spectrum. 

Sick [————————————————-|—————] Healthy

Whereas someone who has very severe allergies might be here. 

Sick [——|———————————————————] Healthy

So when you say you know a person with CFS, that doesn’t mean they have the same severity as me and it is foolish to compare our situations without that information.

Thing the second. 

Comorbidity… “The presence of one or more additional disorders (or diseases) co-occurring with a primary disease or disorder.” 

Comorbities can often make your primary illness more severe. An individual disorder on its own may not be debilitating, but when combined with another, it can make your health plummet. 

I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It is pretty severe. 

Sick [——————|———————————————] Healthy

I have narcolepsy. Also quite severe, especially since I have been unable to find an effective treatment. 

Sick [————————-|————————————-] Healthy

Here is the fun part. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome takes your restorative sleep and makes it very inefficient. My narcolepsy keeps me from reaching delta wave sleep, which is the most restorative. This conflict really messes with my overall health. 

Sick [——|———————————————————] Healthy

Thing the third.

How do you rate the seriousness of illnesses? A soldier loses his legs to an IED. That’s pretty damn serious. But with therapy and prosthetic legs he becomes a paralympian. Is that more serious than a person dying of cancer? I have a friend who was hit by a drunk driver. He is paralyzed from the chest down. He told me that he would not trade illnesses with me. He has been able to travel the world. He has signed up for experimental bionic legs. He leaves his house every day.

My point is not that I think my poor health is more serious. My point is that various illnesses can limit you in many different ways and it is very hard to compare them. It isn’t a competition of who has it worst. We are all just trying to make the best of a bad situation. 

Thing the fourth. 

I HAVE A JOB. I run 3 websites, I have 2 webcomics, I have 2 employees, and I am slowly starting a photography business. I work hard every day that I am able. Most of the time I work from when I wake up to when I go to sleep. I have an income. I pay rent. I pay for food. I pay my bills. Yes, I do most of my work from bed, but saying I don’t have a job is insulting. 

I am glad that the people you know are able to manage active lives despite their illness. That’s probably a lot harder than you realize. I’m living the best life I can within my limitations and so are they.

Modern Hollywood and the Ancient East

The 1001 Arabian Nights. The Biblical flood and the family that repopulated the world. The Jewish exodus out of Ancient Egypt. The story of Jesus of Nazareth. The Ancient Egyptian gods Horus, Ra, and Set…

These movie concepts, in development for 2014 and 2015 releases, are based on stories and histories from the Eurocentric concept of the “East” that have captured the Eurocentric imagination. They’re also rare acting opportunities for actors of color that continue to be cast with white actors.

Liam Hemmsworth and Anthony Hopkinswill star as leads in the Arabian Nights.  Russell Crowe stars as the patriarch of the Earth-repopulating family of Noahin what the film claims is a “close adaptation of the Biblical story of Noah’s Ark.” Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado portrays the role of Jesus inSon of God. White Brit Christian Bale plays Moses and white Australian Joel Edgerton plays Ramses II in Exodus. White Scottish, Danish, and Australian actors top the cast of Gods of Egypt portraying Set, Horus, and Ra.

North African, Near Eastern, Middle Eastern, South Asian–they’re already arbitrary cultural classifications. Depending on Hollywood’s purposes, these characters, cultures, and stories are either made white or racialized as a swath of brown…

reminder not to reblog missing persons signal boosts without first confirming their legitimacy off of tumblr because abusive partners use those to find their victims who have managed to escape them

Also: Don’t contact anyone other than the local police department. If it says to contact someone else that’s a very bad sign.

Leading Men Age, Leading Women Don’t | Vulture

There are more charts if you click through.

I’m so glad this info graphic is going around, because so many people don’t realize how ageism and misogyny play hand in hand and how the sexualization of young girls play into this.

DO NOT WATCH ELEANOR AND PARK!

anirresistiblysexyperson:

Do not even READ the book. It’s filled with gross racism, and the author herself has terribly racist reasoning behind her dehumanizing portrayal of her Asian characters.

PLEASE DO NOT SUPPORT THIS BOOK OR MOVIE. Thank you!
