Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014
Both by Dan Bagan
Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.
Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”
Then she teamed up with Steinem to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.
These are women are who I always wanted to be.
I’M SAVING THESE TO FUCK WITH PEOPLE’S BRAINS
I just love the boy’s reactions i keep imagining a little boy screaming bedtime paradox and then immediately falling to sleep
How am I supposed to control my life if I can’t even control my hair

So my Dad and brother took separate cars to dinner tonight, and this happened.
they look like they are arguing about who is going to go home and change
Oh, they were.
Jake: You’ve got to be kidding me
Dad: You SAW me walk through the kitchen on my way to pick up your sister!
Jake: No seriously do you have an extra shirt in your car this is ridiculous
Oh my god they’re gonna kill me they didn’t want to even walk into the restaurant together let alone have this many people reblog this photo
My favorite part of this photo is that there is absolutely no reason for Jason Segel to be in it and yet there he is laying on Seth Rogen
I love the look on his face when he gets to the smallest one.
i aspire to be one of those people who are known for always smelling good and treating people kindly
tHAT WAS SO CUTE??? ????????
I am no expert on love, but I have a few suggestions to keeping your love alive.
1: Don’t fall asleep angry. But if you do, wake up in the middle of the night and hold her as close as you can.
2: Laugh during sex, especially if you bump heads. If you aren’t laughing, you’re with the wrong person.
3: If you don’t feel comfortable dancing naked with your partner and showing them your four chins when you laugh, you’re doing it wrong.
4: Romance isn’t for everyone, but a post-it note in their lunchbox telling them they’re the best will never go amiss.
5: Don’t cling to them at parties. Dance with friends and spend time with acquaintances, but wink at each other across the room.
6: Keep everything 50/50, or you will fall out of balance.
7: Stop comparing your relationship to others- you are you, don’t try to be someone else.
8: Be kind. Give them space when they need it, but be their home when they come back.
9: Be proud to love them.
10: Support them through whatever they do in life, even if it’s a stupid decision. People need to make their own mistakes, but be there if it falls apart, and never say ‘I told you so’.
And most of all, love with your whole heart, or don’t love at all.
Don’t do that. Don’t skip stages in your life. You’re 19, kiss a few boys and wear your heart on your sleeve. There will come a time when you’re 39 and stuck in a suit, wondering why the hell you were so eager to grow up in the first place.
