People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.
This is so important. Girls pay attention. Boys, if you are a brother, father, cousin of a girl, pay attention.
EVERYBODY SHOULD WATCH THIS
I love this video!
Some assholes have been putting nails in cheese and treats in dog parks in Chicago and Massachusetts. Also adding antifreeze to water bowls.
Please watch out for your dogs. And if you find out the address of someone doing this, give me the address and tell no one. I will disembowel them.
Antifreeze is fucking deadly as shit. Whilst my mom worked in the vets office the neighbor of a cat owner had become sick of his neighbors tom spraying by his house so he left antifreeze out for the cat. Animals are weirdly attracted to the smell and will drink it.
The cat was given to the vets and for 2 days it’s insides were slowly dissolved by the acids and it bled from his nose, mouth and even eyes.
On the second day, the vet not being able to help and refusing to let the cat suffer any longer put the cat down. The neighbor who did not deny his crimes didn’t even offer to pay the woman’s vet bill.
SO THE BIGGEST FUCKING SIGNAL BOOST TO THIS POST.
Fuck who ever is doing this. They can fucking burn.
my friend had a cat and it drank antifreeze that was puddled in the driveway and one day they were knitting and it just vomited up all of its internal organs and fell over dead on her lap.
The perpetrators of all of this will burn in Hell.
A neighbor of mine threw a ball of hamburger full of rat poison pellets over our fence for my son’s dog. He survived, barely, but has had nerve damage ever since.
Okay, listen up, if your pet drinks antifreeze, do you know what the cure is? Alcohol. That’s right. To save your furry little friend you have to get them drunk out of their faces. Antifreeze is an inhibitor and stops your enzymes from working, but luckily alcohol stops that from happening. I learned this from my A Level Biology lessons, but here’s a source anyway http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/2617997.stm
Shit this is important SIGNAL BOOST THIS THANK YOU ALICE

At first I though this was a joke
Don’t ignore this Tumblr
Yet they still do even when it’s right in their face.
Ok. Regardless of the fact that I don’t think 91,000 notes is tumblr “ignoring it,” there are a few issues with this. First of all, that “40%” statistic is from a men’s rights group in the UK called parity, which is outspokenly anti-feminist. Rather than acknowledge that when domestic abuse of men does happen, it’s more likely to be at the hands of another man, they weasel-words themselves out of citing any actual statistics but a self-report survey done as a companion to the BCR, the british crime survey, all the actual data of which STILL reports women as the primary sufferers of domestic abuse (ie 55-60+ percent.)
Now, we can sit here and mince words all day, and I can certainly agree that violence against men is prevalent and important, but it is absolutely unethical and ignorant to pretend that men aren’t also the primary perpetrators. Rather than creatively painting the primary victims of domestic abuse as the perpetrators, it may be advantageous to look at some neutral statistics, bearing in mind that statistics for BOTH are probably higher, since abuse reporting for EVERYONE is low.
There, at the National Domestic Violence Hotline website, is this statistic: “From 1994 to 2010, about 4 in 5 victims of intimate partner violence were female.” and they cite their sources.
The other reason this bugs me is that when you try to look this up, most of the sources are from Parity, meaning no, nobody’s “ignoring it-” they took those flawed, misrepresented statistics and ran with them, implying worldwide issues from a single survey in the UK/Wales.
Look. It’s important to protect EVERYONE from domestic abuse. But if you’re attempting to do that by misrepresenting the primary victims, I don’t want any part of it.
OMG WHAT DID I DO!?
For mobile just hold the reblog button
I LEARNED A THING
EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW THIS OMFG
Alright, Tumblr. You’ve helped people in the past. Please, please help me now. My close friend, Darren Palmer, has went missing. He lives in the Lamar County of Alabama, USA.
Reblog this. If it gets around enough, maybe someone with information will find it. Maybe he will find it. I don’t care. Just help. He’s a very close friend of mine.
WHAT WE KNOW.
- Darren was last seen two days ago(May 20th) with my friend and myself at a snow cone place, as far as I know.
- He does NOT have his phone or credit card. Both were found earlier.
- His father committed suicide a few years ago. Darren left a note on his father’s tombstone saying that he was leaving because he felt he was being a burden, which is not true.
His mother is worried. I’m worried. Everyone is worried.
If you have any information, please send me a text as 1-205-799-7056, or contact my email(ClockworksDoll@yahoo.com). I will update as time goes on.
And even if you don’t have any information, PLEASE reblog this in case someone might!
*The left picture is from 3 years ago, the right is from 2. He hasn’t changed much, besides losing the glasses and freckles.
Darren has a green army backback and normally has on a hoodie in either white and grey plaid or stripes, or blue/black/white diamonds.
I’m not from USA but I hope it’ll help.
Monkey Rag is now online. I hope you like it!
Please take some time away from your regular fandom blogging and reblog this photo of some of the 200+ schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram militants in Nigeria. This photo is a still from a video released today by the kidnappers. It is vital that people do not forget about them and keep demanding #bringbackourgirls
Boko Haram, like the Taliban militants who shot Malala Yousafzai, fear above all an educated, free thinking woman. This crisis will not go away until we address this issue.
P.S Do NOT use this post and others like this as an excuse to hate on Muslims or Islam or African nations. Only in our humanity will we find true peace.
It takes two seconds to reblog, please signal boost this. What is happening is not receiving nearly enough attention as it should. Keep those girls in your thoughts. We will not stop until they are safe and home.
