Jelena is so fucking iconic, tweets abt them going viral with like 400K RT and 500K likes

I know. Power couple. I was thinking about how amazing “Jelena” is but then I thought if Justin gave Hailey or Chantel this much power and attention they would probably be a power couple too. I’ve realized it’s just Justin and his fan base that make this so iconic. Because no matter who Justin is with they will gain attention and fame like never before. He can make a trash can famous.

I am laughing so hard because EA’s “Um, actually sweetie, us locking Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker behind two $260 paywalls in our $80 game is totally justifiable :)” comment not only broke the record for most downvoted post in Reddit history, it completely obliterated it. It wasn’t just the first to break 500k or even 100k, no post before it had even broken 25k. The most downvoted post prior to this was one from someone literally asking for downvotes, which currently stands at -23.8k. The shitstorm that came down on The Fine Brothers when they tried to lay claim to reaction videos and the word “react” itself only landed them just shy of 6,000 downvotes. As of this post, EA’s comment sits at negative 557 thousand when it’s only a day old, and it’s still getting thousands of downvotes by the hour. It could very well be the first post to get to a million downvotes. Remember, the previous record wasn’t even 25 thousand.

Just… wow.

We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, ‘You can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise you will threaten the man.’ Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support. But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors – not for jobs or for accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.
