I tried to do shots like these the last time I went on holiday and I failed miserably. Kudos to those who manage it.
found this gem in the 1996 Cornell Women’s Handbook. it’s what to say when a guy tries to get out of using a condom
do you ever just want to go outside in the middle of the night and walk around and not actually do anything just observe and think and stuff
Become a police officer and then you have no choice!
Actually it WAS a sign in the 80s that if you had one ear pierced on a particular side you were a gay man. I remember this because my first girlfriend had only one side pierced because she had too many allergies in her other ear to have it in that and I’d read this in The Pink Paper or Gay Times. I think it was the left ear which meant you were gay but honestly I can remember.
There was also an agreement amongst gay people in London that you travelled in the second front carriage on the underground in order to cruise. I suspect this didn’t work either because no one told the heterosexual tourists.
Reblogged twice on purpose. Because this EXTRA fucking belongs on my blog.
we are all the same
WE ARE ALL THE SAME
WE ARE ALL THE SAME
Yes except we are not currently all the same and it belittles the everyday homophobia we all experience by saying ‘it’s not gay marriage, it’s just marriage’. Actually, by saying that you are colluding with oppressors and not acknowledging that it IS different that I get asked by the registrar “what should we call you, the two brides? The happy couple?” because there is no suitable medium in language yet. That people have refused their invitation because they don’t agree that I’m marrying a person of the perceived same gender. That our wedding packs from the council said “bride” and “groom” not partner 1 and partner 2. This stuff effects you. It may not be obvious. You may be internally denying it. But it is NOT equal yet.
For future reference.
For those who would ever need it. -C
reblogging here because i can see this being relevant to anyone who’s ever tried to get out of an abusive relationship
Reblogging because that last comment made me reread the whole thing in a new light and realize this could be vital information. So, putting it out there for everyone, and hoping no one ever really needs it.
I need feminism because women still aren’t included in cycling grand tours like the Tour de France.
Attempts to include females generally consist of separate, smaller stage races such as the Tour de France Feminin, which was cancelled in 2009. Reasons against including women range from women having less endurance (bullsh!t), breaking 100 years of tradition, and a lack of sponsorship interest (which demonstrates a problem in itself).
This year the race organisers have developed La Course, a one day women’s race, which is being praised as “game changing” and “revolutionary”.
It’s time for professional cycling to leave the dark ages, stop throwing smaller, lesser races at us like a bone to a dog, and include women in the full length Tour, even if it is with a separate General Classification.
I really should try to remember more often that I can take my longboard into town and use it. I always forget until I see other people with theirs in parks and along the Southbank and then I am covered in regret and envy at their life, when that could easily be me!
In today’s episode of uselessly gendered items - ear plugs for women. Because you can’t stick a piece of plastic in your ear unless it’s pink and the box has a flower on it.
I use these pink ones and they are slightly smaller than the other earplugs you can buy (which don’t state they are for women). I use earplugs every night and smaller ones do make a difference and are more comfortable. I don’t agree with the pink and flowers but I do appreciate the size difference.
