People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.

Watch the powerful Verizon advertisement to really understand what a little girl hears when you tell her she’s pretty.

This is so important. Girls pay attention. Boys, if you are a brother, father, cousin of a girl, pay attention.

This is CRITICAL

Anonymous asked: What makes sea salt soaks so effective for the healing process of piercings? Is there specific ingredients contained in it to fight off infections, irritation and bacteria?

safepiercing:

This is a good opportunity to dispel some myths. Sea salt solution is not a magic potion that will cure all your ails. There is no anti-bacterial action going on there its just irrigation. Yes, it can be effective as an aftercare product, but it needs to be used in a very specific way. 

We’ve covered sea salt solution a bunch of times on the blog. The main thing is that you need to match your body’s salt level with the solution. If you are mixing sea salt solution correctly (1/4 teaspoon of pure sea salt in 8 ounces of distilled or purified water) you’ll get a mixture that is roughly the same salinity (saltiness) as the moisture in your skin. This correct balance will give you an isotonic solution. This means that you can flush, rinse, or soak a piercing site without over drying the skin. Mix your solution to strongly and you get a hypertonic (too salty) solution. Too strong a solution and you draw out moisture from the skin and over-dry the piercing site. That’s all there is to it. Sea salt solution does not fight off any bacteria. 

When you heal a piercing your aftercare is not meant to kill kill kill the germs in the area. A healthy body has a great immune system, you want to let it do all the work for you. Sea salt solution is only there is help rinse away the debris you pick up over the course of the day, or to soothe mild irritation from the piercing being stressed by the world. A good rinse or soak with SSS or saline soothes the skin by flushing away the discharge your body secretes during the healing process. That’s it.

Mexico City: Sex workers gather to commemorate their colleagues who were violently murdered, two days before the Day of the Dead festival.

this is why you don’t fuck around with day of the dead, because it has a deeper meaning than “pretty sugar skulls”. those are offerings to the dead, a symbol of each and every person we choose to honor in the afterlife; not some quirky costume to put on and appropriate. those skulls mean something, the pan de muertos and altars mean something. so go fuck yourself if you think that they’re just for decoration while you shit on my ancestors for you stupid pasty ass bland halloween party.

And lets also remember sex workers who are not protected and their fight as feminism glosses over them and shame them

Please reblog and donate, the murder of these girls didn’t even make the national news. This is one instance where tumblr’s favourite aphorism “no one’s talking about this” is actually true

Friendly reminder that Dia de Los Muertos is pretty much a funeral, and the dead being represented in the holiday are actual dead people who had families and friends and hopes and dreams. So just as you wouldn’t throw on black clothes and join a group of mourners because they look so fashionable in black, you shouldn’t paint your face and put marigolds in your hair and make altars because it looks cool to you. Thank.

It’s Bi Visibility Day! Here are some famous bi people with quotes about their bisexuality :)

Alan Cumming: “I don’t understand this but I never felt any shame about my sexuality and the idea that I found boys attractive as well as girls.”

Lady Gaga: “I’m boy-crazy, and girl-crazy too. it really depends on where I am. I love men, I love women and I love sex.”

Freddie Mercury: “I play on the bisexual thing because it’s something else, it’s fun… the last thing I want to do is to give people an idea of exactly who I am. I want people to work out their own interpretation of me and my image.”

David Bowie: “It’s true — I am a bisexual. But I can’t deny that I’ve used that fact very well. I suppose it’s the best thing that ever happened to me.”

Anna Paquin: “For me, it’s not really an issue because I’m someone who believes being bisexual is actually a thing. It’s not made up. It’s not a lack of decision. It’s not being greedy or numerous other ignorant things I’ve heard at this point.”

Kurt Cobain: “I’m definitely gay in spirit, and I probably could be bisexual… If I wouldn’t have found Courtney, I probably would have carried on with a bisexual lifestyle.”

Drew Barrymore: “I regard myself as bisexual. If you’re with a woman, it is like if you’re exploring your own body, only through someone else.”

Angelina Jolie: “I like everything. Boyish girls, girlish boys, the heavy and the skinny. Which is a problem when I’m walking down the street.”

Skin: “Yes I happen to be female and black and bisexual and these are things that are part of me, but they don’t tell the whole picture, it’s too limiting to put people in boxes like that.”

Amy Winehouse: “There is something about being with a woman that is very satisfying. I don’t care what people think about me being bi — I do what feels good.”
