If you are a man who thinks it’s funny to make misogynist jokes purely to make your female friends uncomfortable/angry, then you are a misogynist.  It is not “just a joke.”  You literally are finding humor in the discomfort and dehumanization of women.  You are not helping, you are not making satire.  You are just being misogynist.

i know so many guys like this.

When people say to a boy "That’s for girls" 

There seems to be an implication that liking or associating with anything feminine or girly is wrong and somehow beneath them.

When people say to a girl "That’s for boys"

There seems to be an implication that they must remember their place.

Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.

get to know me meme (five favorite actresses): melissa mccarthy [1/5]

Q: On-screen you’re fearless about your sexuality: that SNL sketch where you played Arlene, crazily hitting on her coworker…and of course, Bridesmaids.
A: One of my favorite things is playing someone who’s utterly confident — even if they’re, just, like, wrong. They’re off the beaten track. They’re not polished or perfect, but they’re so solid in their shoes. They’re having the time of their life. And I always think, Now, that’s someone who’s interesting. They don’t give a shit what they’re supposed to be, or how they’re supposed to look. I find them mesmerizing. I think there’s greatness in not caring what other people think. (x)

Why Finnish babies sleep in cardboard boxes
For 75 years, Finland’s expectant mothers have been given a box by the state. It’s like a starter kit of clothes, sheets and toys that can even be used as a bed. And some say it helped Finland achieve one of the world’s lowest infant mortality rates.
It’s a tradition that dates back to the 1930s and it’s designed to give all children in Finland, no matter what background they’re from, an equal start in life.
The maternity package - a gift from the government - is available to all expectant mothers.
It contains bodysuits, a sleeping bag, outdoor gear, bathing products for the baby, as well as nappies, bedding and a small mattress.
With the mattress in the bottom, the box becomes a baby’s first bed. Many children, from all social backgrounds, have their first naps within the safety of the box’s four cardboard walls.
Mothers have a choice between taking the box, or a cash grant, currently set at 140 euros, but 95% opt for the box as it’s worth much more.
The tradition dates back to 1938. To begin with, the scheme was only available to families on low incomes, but that changed in 1949.

Socialism at work.

I would rather my tax money pay for this than drone missiles.

"Some women are lost in the fire. Some women are built from it."

"The idea of the humourless feminist is an incredibly potent and effective silencer. It is used to isolate and alienate young girls; to ridicule and dismiss older women, to force women in the workplace to ‘join in the joke’ and, in the media, to castigate protest to the point of obliteration."
