Does anyone else lie in bed at 2:30am filled with the crippling fear that they’re never going to accomplish anything in life and fail miserably or is that just me
tumblr’s vicious logic
Blogger : I am being harassed for my gender , race , ethnicity & sexuality on the internet and real life.
Blogger : My answer to this is to harass other people for their gender , race , ethnicity & sexuality on the internet and real life. Maybe they’ll treat me nicer after i do this.
Have you heard of Ban Bossy? It’s the new initiative from Lean In and the Girl Scouts that’s trying to ban “bossy” and similar words that are used to bring down girls that are ambitious, take risks, and speak up. By changing the way we treat girls who lead, hopefully our generation will someday see more women in leadership roles.
You can watch the 1:00 video with Beyonce, Jane Lynch, Condeleeza Rice, and Jennifer Garner here, or visit the Ban Bossy website.
don’t read the youtube comments on this.
You want to know why this person is encouraging you not to read the comments? Because some of the comments are the truth about how stupid this shit is. Its like “I’m offended you called me bossy so I’m going to be EVEN MORE BOSSY and promote the banning of the word “Bossy” to make myself feel better!” Because its not just men that call women bossy. Women call other women bossy if they don’t like them and guess what. Bossy is very much a personality trait to narcissists people. And I honestly doubt people lose their confidence from being called bossy. I would talk that person down and say “No, I’m taking initiative.” What this does is showing that women are incapable of taking insults and must rely on censorship to get what they want.
And there’s a word for a bossy man, it’s called an asshole. This campaign only coddles women to make sure no one says bossy instead of teaching women not to care what people think. If you fall apart after being called names, then you’re not strong enough to be a leader. This is a waste of time and money. There are girls from developing countries who legally aren’t considered human beings. Being called bossy is not the end of the world. And, bossy is not the same as being a leader. If a woman is called bossy, she’s only likely being rude and inconsiderate to other people. Unfortunately, first world society lumps being a cruel woman is being empowered woman.
'Bossy' is really not the worst thing to be called and if it upsets you then I'm sorry, you're not cut out to be a leader, because being a CEO or whatever is tough and people are critical, more so than being called bossy.

Please take a moment to remember the Fogel family - baby Hadas, 4 year old Elad, 11 year old Yoav and parents Ruthie and Udi - brutally murdered in their beds three years ago in Itamar by Palestinian terrorists.
We will forever honor their memory.

I wanna be in that relationship were I can just do the stupidest shit. Like legit, dance in public with me, make faces at me, do accents with me, hell, make fun of my bad habits in a funny way. I don’t care, just have fun with me.
The best thing about my relationship is it is like that, so much. So much banter.
nathanielbuildsatesseract ha chiesto: Regarding the German Minimum Wage: they're going to implement one soon. It was part of the coalition deal between the CDU/CSU and the Social Democrats. It'll be interesting to see how it plays out.
Ahh right, I didn’t know that. Yeah, I’ll follow up on that, thanks.
I’m pretty sure there are actually quite a few European countries like Germany who you’d think would have a NMW but don’t. I can’t remember which ones though.

This is interesting but horribly inaccurate, because obviously, the price of beer varies, depending on the brand, where you live, what kind of venue you’re buying it at, whether it’s on offer or happy hour or something. Like in a student union bar in London, you could get a beer for £2 (or even £1 at mine on certain days), which goes up to roughly £4-5 in pubs, and up to £6 in clubs, probably even more in the massive West End clubs (which I’ve never been to so idk, the only ones I’ve been to are in the Shoreditch area).
Also, and I’m not sure if this applies to any other countries, but in the UK NMW is different depending on whether you live in London or outside London, and also depending on your age.
Also I’m like 90% sure that Germany doesn’t actually have an official NMW??
