The Princess Bride? You mean the best movie ever made.

These sound like the superpowers the sidekicks have in Sky High
But you’re still ignoring my point that a lot of public schools set ridiculous rules that go beyond just having a “modest” dress code. Are shoulders and thighs really so offensive and distracting that they must be hidden from sight? Are these strict codes really necessary? One would think that what’s deemed appropriate in a public place like, say, a mall, or a park, or a restaurant would be deemed appropriate in a public school, but instead we have schools that ban yoga pants because they fit to the shape of a girl’s butt (yoga pants are considered appropriate in plenty of work places, by the way). And what’s the excuse for these ridiculous standards? “Girls wearing revealing clothing (i.e. revealing their fucking shoulders god forbid) is too distracting for the boys” That is bullshit.
I see your point, but I’m not entirely sure it’s true boys have the same dress codes. Going from my own experience of going to many schools and having to read many student handbooks, the boys and girls usually have separate sections in the dress code rules. Boys generally (emphasis one generally, not always) get the no-brainer guidelines like you can’t go shirtless but you don’t really hear about boys having restrictions on how short their pants can be or not being allowed to wear gym shorts cus you can see their junk move around behind them. This also has a lot to do with what’s the norm when it comes to what each gender wears, with girls generally wearing more revealing things. Boy dress codes and girl dress codes are two totally different monsters is what I’m getting at. I have occasionally seen bs boy dress codes in my day, though and if men wanted to dispute the dress codes put on them they would have my support.
I don’t mind schools that have a uniform, that is a case of the school wanting to create a more professional and formal environment. But public schools are a different story as they put really strange restrictions on clothing. I don’t really buy a school saying they have the dress code to look “professional” when they allow kids to waltz in wearing pajama bottoms and a t-shirt while they send home the girl wearing spaghetti straps. There is a point where you don’t want the kids wearing clothing that is too revealing and I understand putting restrictions on that but school dress codes have exceeded that point loooong ago. There are more important things schools should be cracking down on and yet they treat arbitrary dress codes as the #1 priority.
Just because problems in other parts of the world are worse than what we have here doesn’t mean our problems don’t exist or are meaningless. Oppression comes in many forms and has many levels of harshness.
Also of all the examples of petty things feminists fight over I think dress codes are not one of them. Dress codes are bullshit and offend both genders by implying a girl’s body is something to hide or be ashamed of while also implying that boys are too stupid and testosterone filled to focus on their schoolwork when a fucking shoulder is shown. Not to mention it feeds the ever growing problem of victim blaming.
Morticia and Gomez are literally my role models
I still find it odd that people treat Tumblr (and other sites for that matter) as a single entity instead of the culmination of millions of users.
Well considering this is an organization dedicated to collecting donations from the public I really don’t see the problem of making an advertisement to get more people to donate. Considering this took place in a busy subway (and is now a viral video) I imagine they made way more money in donations from this than they put into making the ad itself.
Free lightning tattoos
I like the way this guy thinks
Those silver-y marks running up her side and stomach are stretch marks.
Ok but is anyone else bothered that you can see the light from the girl’s phone in the first picture? Who the hell is she fooling?
It’s considered a big problem in the trans community that a lot of doctors just don’t know how to handle and treat trans patients (hell, it can be a problem even if you’re just gay). There are also many different ways one can “transition” without straight up gender reassignment surgery so not having doctors that know a lot on the subject can actually be quite the struggle. Having your doctor know your original gender is important (hence why tampering with paperwork like this is still a bad idea) but the issues go way beyond just marking a little box.
For the record, I’m not condoning messing with health insurance forms as pictured above. I’m just saying biology and biological sex aren’t as straight black and white as many of us like to think they are. Particularly when dealing with doctors, a lot of complicated things get thrown into the mix when one identifies as trans/genderqueer
I… I don’t know what to think about this.
The shovel looks really frikin weird (I had to stare at it for a second before I realized what it was) but the creatures look absolutely awesome. I especially love that they have a mooshroom!
“Stop having dialects different from mine!”
This looks like his personal blog rather than an official Uncle Grandpa blog, do you just think certain people must keep an air of “professionalism” at all times? What, do you think one of the kids that watches his show is gonna find his tumblr and have their life crushed cus the guy swore a few times? And I personally think he conducted himself well. Yeah, he essentially fed the troll and threw in some curse words, but he defended his work and his passion and proved it meant something to him. That’s admirable to me.
That last guy is asking the real questions.
Except from what I’ve seen from the news they even do their best to make peaceful protests look bad.
I definitely think we’ve been in a second golden age since about 2010 or so.
Thanks, I really appreciate you still using the OC I drew for you a million years ago. I think we do have a great friendship, even if we don’t talk much.
I’m really glad this post exists. I think it really says something when an kid that looks barely 13 is willing to own up and take responsibility for his mistakes while many full grown people are too busy trying to keep their pride in check.
Sadly, no diet Dr. Kelp required for the look
