Things are not as complicated as people tend to make them out to be. But I guess the easier something is to understand, the harder it is for certain people to accept it. Because acceptance for some people is the same as admitting when they are wrong. And they can’t have that.
So they’ll  make things out to be something it is not or invent situations to bitch about. Rumors are started by the same people who make simple situations into complicated ones. Simplicity is simple. I wish more people knew how to use it. I wish more people learned to accept other people for who they are instead of finding reasons why they shouldn’t. Learn to burn your ego and realize that pointing out the fault of others in the end is the biggest fault of your own. Try to take time to improve yourself.

If we forget our past, we wont remember our future, because we won’t have one. So focus on your own past and worry less about everyone else’s.

It’s true that cyberspace can be a toxic environment, but that’s not specific to women or feminists.

Everyone gets shit on the internet, not just the people who agree with your opinion. Although, if your whole business model involves setting yourself up as a professional victim, it might be more in your interests to, shall we say, “develop” that theme.

Let’s say I believe in peace. If I were drafted, I would not fight. Am I a Quaker, am I Amish, am I a humanist conscientious objector, am I Buddhist, am I a total pacifist? There’s no way of knowing unless you ask me. My reasons may be religious or secular. They may be related only to that one war. They may be motivated by strong convictions against the wrongness of killing or of war in general or that war in particular. They may be motivated purely by the fact that I don’t want to go get shot at. But no matter what my reasons, I still feel the same way ultimately about peace as each person with every other reason I listed.

Feminism is not the only equality movement. The existence of other equality movements does not negate it or take away from it. If you are offended by the existence of multiple equality movements and multiple terms describing the priorities of multiple people, then you do not care about real equality - you care about being “first”. Stop it.

I always get asked the question “What are corals?” or “Corals are plants, right?”. 

Well. Not quite. 

While coral do have a relationship with a small photosynthetic algae that live in their tissue, they are definitely an animal. This is a picture is of the mouth of Euphyllia ancora or ‘Hammer coral. You can also see inside the mouth are the digestive filaments that can be extruded or extended from the mouth of the coral to digest nearby neighbors. 


r/TumblrInAction being like “you can’t possibly self-diagnose yourself with a mental illness because said mental illness prevents you from thinking objectively”


do you know how many kinds of mental illness there are? mental illness =/= psychosis. p sure depression and anxiety don’t render you unable to make reasonable judgments.

also…if you really are making a big deal out of nothing and blowing up tiny symptoms into huge issues, I’m pretty sure THAT IS ALSO A SYMPTOM OF MENTAL ILLNESS.
