I just put all 7 of my piercings back in for the first time since losing them 8 months ago. Not gonna lie my face kinda hurts.
"19% of prime time television characters are non-human while only 17% are women"
A Profile of Americans’ Media Use and Political Socialization Effects: television and the Internet’s relationship to social connectedness in the USA ― Daniel German & Caitlin Lally
There are more “non-humans” on TV than women. Talk about unequal gender representation in the media.

You know, what I find interesting, is there is at least two works in the past fifteen years or so about kids killing each other, mostly isolated from any adult supervision.
What’s the classic example of that? Lord of the Flies.
When I studied that in grade eight, it was held up as this example of society, a look at what we would be like without authority. (Written by an old white British dude raise your hand if you’re surprised.)
So, lets look at Battle Royale and Hunger Games as the modern-day version of that.
What’s the key distance that time has made with these microcosms of children murdering children?
These days, it’s not being shown that we default to savage murder without authority. These works show authority forcing us into it.
I think that’s fucking fascinating.
And much more accurate.
reblog if you’re the gay cousin
one thing i hate is when parents refuse to let their kid(s) dye their hair

How to teach your child that they don’t own their body.
Same goes for cutting/NOT cutting a kid’s hair counter to their desires.
Think about what this teaches your kid about consent when you do this.
I’m sure some people think this is trivial but it’s really, really not. You need to be teaching your child that their body is THEIRS.
yeah my mother always, at least subconsciously, used my appearance as an extension of herself and her parenting. And I’m sure many other parents do this, too, and basically it fed into SOOOO much of my body-hate as a child.
As someone who’s been dyeing my own hair since I was 16, I gotta say I agree with the parents on this. No way in hell am I going to let my younger siblings mix their own bleach and apply it to themselves. I’ll help them out if they want their hair dyed, but those are some serious chemicals, guys.
