I get £40 a week (sometimes £80)
That’s like £160 a month (or maybe £200+)
Research tells me that is not enough to rent my own flat
But I can dream

Mythological creatures around the world | Feyfolk
The Unseelie Court originates from Scottish mythology and is a dark counterpart to the Seelie Court. The Unseelie fairies appear in groups at night and harrass travelers by lifting them up in the air, beating them or forcing them to do acts of violence. However, some Unseelie fairies might become fond of a particular human and treat them almost like a pet.

Was talking about #WomenAgainstFeminism today on Twitter, a trend that I see largely as a reaction to (1) extremist feminist politics found readily online and (2) ignorance/stereotypes about feminism.  I tried to handle my frustration with a bit humor but quickly realized this is actually a really emotionally-fraught topic for people.  Maybe not the time for sarcasm.Most the time, feminism in action doesn’t explicitly call itself feminism. I’m talking about things like campaigning for sex ed, same sex marriage, equal pay, maternity leave, reproductive health access, transgender health care, representation, implementing sexual assault/harassment policies, getting women into stem, etc. I think this confused void about what feminists *actually do and believe in* allows the space to be sensationalized by a loud, extreme minority and predatory media sources who see a “hot story”. Mainstream onlookers who don’t know their history or what feminism is (and don’t take a second to learn…) naturally take the bait and then end up railing against something that isn’t even an accurate representation of feminism in the first place. Then feminists are pissed, and anti-feminists are pissed (though misogynists are usually quite happy) and we’ve whipped ourselves up a nice divisive shitstorm of “whose side are you on”?I understand it’s unpopular amongst some feminists to concede that extremism exists; “there’s nothing wrong with radical action” and “they’re a part of the movement too”! I think those are valid points (and I certainly don’t think the solution is to silence/disown anyone), but I also think we have to admit that it can really alienate people from the cause, and perhaps #WomenAgainstFeminism is proof.  What do you think?

“I also thank Angelina for dressing in hijab while she visited not just Iraqi refugees but refugees in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Not only did she look good in it, she showed respect and appreciation for their culture and religion and made sure that the focus was not on her looks but rather her mission.”

This photo carries so much emotion

i respect her so much not only because of her innate talent but also her genuineness and humility. she is definitely not ignorant especially considering her situation in life and ugh i just love her for it

One day on Lake Superior! I took so many pictures. This is only a taste. I wouldn’t have rather experienced this beauty with anyone but my wonderful youth group! It was truly delightful.
