What you have to decide… is how you want your life to be. If your forever was ending tomorrow, would this be how you’d want to have spent it? Listen, the truth is, nothing is guaranteed. You know that more than anybody. So don’t be afraid. Be alive.

Girls are trained to say, ‘I wrote this, but it’s probably really stupid.’ Well, no, you wouldn’t write a novel if you thought it was really stupid. Men are much more comfortable going, ‘I wrote this book because I have a unique perspective that the world needs to hear.’ Girls are taught from the age of seven that if you get a compliment, you don’t go, ‘Thank you’, you go, ‘No, you’re insane.’

Urban Outfitters Offers ‘Vintage’ Faux Blood-Stained Kent State Sweatshirt | TPM
Popular clothing retailer Urban Outfitters has taken heat for selling a faux blood-stained, “vintage” sweatshirt evoking the Kent State University shootings of 1970.


The mocked-up sweatshirt appeared on the retailer’s website Sunday evening. It appeared to be a reference to the shooting of college students by the Ohio National Guard in May 1970, complete with splotches of fake blood. The company’s website never described it as a reference to the shooting, however.
The product immediately invited backlash on social media.
By Monday morning, UrbanOutfitters.com listed the item as “sold out,” and any attempt to visit the product page displayed a notification without an image of the sweatshirt.
On Monday morning Urban Outfitters responded with an apology, addressing the sweartshirt’s bloody apperance.
"The red stains are discoloration from the original shade of the shirt and the holes are from natural wear and fray,” the statement read.

Here’s the sexuality section of the posters my GSA will be putting up around the school!

These posters are by no means exhaustive and I only put the bare basics of each sexuality on the poster. If there’s a glaring error in a definition or something please tell me so I can fix it before we put these up in real life!

Sign the petition:

FIFA: THE WORLD CUP SHOULD BE PLAYED ON NATURAL GRASS

According to the timeline, the petition started over a year ago and i’m beyond saddened that we haven’t hit 5000 signatures yet.

I want to highlight

Artificial turf has been blamed for increased injuries on sporting fields, including more sprained ankles, concussions, turf burns, and an injury known as "turf toe." Overheating is also a health concern for athletes since temperatures can be hotter on artificial surfaces than on natural grass. Finally, turf is widely known to alter the speed and quality of play on the field.

Here’s a depiction of what happens

On top of the health hazards, it alters the game. Players would be more wary about slides and tackles. You won’t see any dolphin RVP headers here. No slidey celebrations.

Again, please sign the petition:

FIFA: THE WORLD CUP SHOULD BE PLAYED ON NATURAL GRASS

I’m passing this around again, if you see this, you have an obligation to sign it
