Feminism as always been about liberating women from the patriarchy. It’s a revolution, it’s not about having the same rights that men have. I don’t want to have the same rights as they do, i don’t want to be able to rape without being put in jail, i don’t want to be the head of a big company that gain money by using slaves. i want to be liberated from a world that is ruled by men and make something new, something better.

Have you ever wondered why an ice pack relieves pain? Why should cold make the pain go away? 
It works because a cold object activates fast fibers in your spinal cord, while pain travels up to your brain in slow fibers. So when you press a cold pack against a sore muscle your fast fibers beat out the slow ones. You feel cold not pain.

The environmental impact of oysters, in one photo
The water in both tanks came from the same source. The one on the right has bivalves. Not only do oysters naturally filter the waters in which they live, they can even protect humans from destructive hurricanes. For more, read about New York’s efforts to bring back oyster populations in the once-toxic Hudson River.
Delicious AND helpful. Who knew?

Wish I would’ve gotten to this sooner since it’s late to be posting, but I really love this particular message and the discussion around “being a man” and how it relates to the treatment of women as well as gay men (or anyone else perceived as “less” / equivocated with being undesirably weak)

We’ve been coming up on six years of existence and we don’t have a use of force on our unit. Which means we never tased anybody. We’ve never shot anybody. We’ve never hit anybody with [a baton]. But patients, talking to them, we get the result we want in the end. And we don’t have to force it on them.

A San Antonio police officer who has been trained to recognize mental illness and respond to it in a nonviolent manner. The training has saved taxpayers $50 million over five years and dramatically reduced the number of violent interactions between police and citizens.

This needs to be implemented EVERYWHERE.
