Why can’t there be a male hooter’s equivalent where male servers are shirtless and highly sexualized for their bodies and looks

Male Strip clubs. You’re thinking of male strip clubs.

No. Not a male strip club. A strip club is a strip club. I want a place called Cahones where waiters wear Speedos and are forced to stuff if they don’t fill out their uniform well enough. I want them to giggle for my tips. I want it to be so normalised and engrained in our culture that women bring their daughters there for lunch (because whaaaaaat the wings are good! Geeze sensitive much?) where they’ll give playful little nudges like, “Wouldn’t mind if you dad had those. Heh heh heh.” that their daughters don’t even understand but will absorb and start to assume is just the normal way grown up women talk about grown up men. I want to playfully ask my waiter if I can have extra nuts on my salad and for him to swat my arm with an Oh, you because he knows if he doesn’t his manager will yell at him. I want other men to pretend to like going there so I think they’re cool. I want to go to Cahones during my lunch break at work and when I come back and tell the other women in the office where I went they chuckle slightly and the men around us suddenly feel self conscious and they don’t know why.

I was flipping through Glamour when I saw this article, I almost choked on my soda to be honest. Five pages, all about eating disorders, the lack if knowledge of them by doctors, and how to help yourself or your friends if you/they have an eating disorder.
They talk about BED as well, not just anorexia and bulimia. I’d like it if they spoke about EDNOS as well but otherwise I loved it.
Good job Glamour, four for you.

Uhm, women’s disease? I usually hate but what about the men! but here it’s appropriate.  Anyone can suffer from an eating disorder, and quite often sufferers who aren’t female get an additionally tough time for their illness not being “manly” enough. In addition to the lack of treatment facilities and detection in male patients, making eating disorders a women’s problem in a misogynistic world allows some people to frame the illness as silly, vain women who worry too much about bikini season which is simply not true. Eating disorders are not for aesthetics. They are serious disorders.

Look after yourself. Look out for your friends. Don’t fall into the subtle pitfalls that allow these illnesses to be something that can be brushed aside.

Small things like grocery shopping and laundry days are exciting now in a way that’s hard to explain
Without sounding like an old man reminiscing.
I am blissfully happy when we spend the afternoon tidying or cleaning,
And nothing makes me more giddy than a trip to Argos for a blender.
I used to be terrified of drudgery,
And I dreamt of running away to a world of loud music and new faces and languages
That scared me in new ways every day.
Now, my version of excitement
Is when our favourite program is on the telly,
And we make popcorn and pour glasses of wine and curl up for the night.
You make routine and comfort feel like an adventure
And I want to stay lost with you.
— Sundays are my favourite,
FRS. (via stayproud-littleowl)

Tupac died at 25. If Malcolm X died at 25 he would have been a street hustler named Detroit Red. If Martin Luther King died at 25 he would’ve been known as a local baptist preacher. And if I had died at 25 I would’ve been known as a struggling musician. Only a sliver of my life’s potential.

okayyy can everybody stop talking shit about ppl who give their dogs and cats all-vegan diets, i fed my cat all raw vegan food since he was a kitten and he lived a very happy four years :)


Cats are compulsory carnivores- this means that they cannot survive without meat because, unlike humans, they cannot process the essential amino acids when present in plant material. My cat is 15 years old and still going strong, although he is a doddering old man. :)

Marriage Tips





The wife must carry an inward fear to her Husband. For the Husband is the wife’s head, and this inward fear must be shewed by an outward meekness and lowliness in her speeches and carriage to her Husband.

If you EVER fear your husband/spouse/wife/significant other then it is time to exit that relationship. Fear =/= Respect. Fear =/= Love.

This girls blog is blowing my mind.

Just read this and can’t stop laughing. ‘Greet your husband with dinner ready and a ribbon in your hair…spend 15 minutes putting on makeup…your duty is to be seen and not heard, he is the master of the house.’
Literally pissing myself. She is my age and she is essentially a housewife from the 50’s.

This shit is fucking terrifying!

Whenever I hear the "Women are paid $.78 for the man’s $1" I flip it around.

Men make $1.22 for every woman’s $1.

It interests me that even the most common simple measure of gender inequality is firmly based on male-as-normative …

bisexual activist and queer theory blogger Patrick RichardsFink 

this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1

A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes

A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes

A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes

A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes

A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes

That’s some bullshit right there.

Let’s take it a step further. For every hour a white man works, a black woman has to work 86 minutes to earn as much money. 57.6 hours a week compared to the white man’s 40.

Take it another step further. Assuming a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job, from Thursday 12:45pm through Friday end of business, a white man gets paid for his work, a black woman is, by comparison, working for free.

Apparently, “Not my problem” in Polish is “nie moj cyrk, nie moje malpy.” Literally “not my circus, not my monkey.”

Officially working the English translation into my vernacular.

yes I am

Eastern European languages are fantastic.

#apparently the german equivalent of ‘it’s all greek to me’ translates to ‘i understand only train station’
