Day 24 - 30 Day Book Challenge

A book you wish more people would’ve read.

Chasing The Sunrise by Elyce Gobat. I’m gonna be honest and let you know that I am hella biased about this book, but I still love it and you should read it because friendship and road trips and bad things bringing people together and people facing their past. Just go, buy it and read it. 

(also ps. I designed the cover (while I was high on Vicodin after having my wisdom teeth removed) )

"We are in a place now where more and more trans people want to come forward and say ‘This is who I am.’ And more trans people are willing to tell their stories. More of us are living visibly and pursuing our dreams visibly, so people can say, ‘Oh yeah, I know someone who is trans.’ When people have points of reference that are humanizing, that demystifies difference."
"Growth is painful. Change is painful.But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong."

"If a survivor of domestic violence uses a gun to warn an attacker, not kill him, and that survivor now faces a prison term of twenty years, then what purpose does Stand Your Ground serve?"
Melissa Harris-Perry on the case of Marissa Alexander, a mother of three who fired a warning shot into her kitchen ceiling trying to keep her abusive husband away. No one was hurt, but she now faces up to twenty years in prison. (via thenationmagazine)

Terrific Tip: Flip the bell peppers over to check their gender. The ones with four bumps are female and those with three bumps are male. The female peppers are full of seeds, but sweeter and better for eating raw and the males are better for cooking. Isn’t that cool? 


That is awesome!

Wtf. Mind. Blown.

I just want to point out one thing here: When was the last time the girl kissed the boy in a teen romance? Ever? Has it happened ever? I seriously think it might not have happened ever.

lmao is john green praising himself

Listen here, shitstain. I’m sick and tired of all the John Green hate popping up on my dash today and we’re going to talk about this.
The film industry today is one big colossal fuckstorm. The odds of an author having one of their books adapted into a film is so monumentally slim that even getting film rights optioned (which in no way guarantees the book will be made into a film) is something the majority of authors will never be able to experience. The odds of a book being adapted into a film that stays faithful to the source material is nigh on impossible.
Movie studios are large corporations intent that exist for the purpose of earning large amounts of money. It’s problematic, yes. But as of now it’s one of the only ways for a film to be financed in such a way that allows not only for production but distribution and promotion as well. These studios are very defensive of their money, and are therefore very cautious about the sort of movies that they will produce. This results in them taking as few risks as possible, with their definition of risk being anything other than the basic, predictable, and often misogynistic tropes that we’re all getting tired of.
Yes, John wrote the scene this way. But the fact that the studio allowed it to stay in the film moderately intact is surprising, and John Green is allowed to be both happy and surprised by it.
it is very unlikely that a movie studio would be willing to make a film centered around teenagers who are dying, let alone pour enough money into it to give it a real shot at being a success, and John Green is allowed to be both happy and surprised by it.
And seriously? This man is watching one of his dreams come true and you’re going to give him shit for being happy about it? Jesus Christ. Give it a fucking break.

Day 22 - 30 Day Book Challenge

A book that makes you cry.

"

Two other women, also breast cancer survivors, said their husbands left them after they were diagnosed. Both had to have mastectomies (in case anyone doesn’t know, this is the surgical operation to remove one or both breasts).

The first woman said her husband told her that he would rather see her dead than see her lose her breasts. The second woman had her operation and waited all day to be picked up by her husband, who never arrived. By nightfall, one of the nurses offered to give her a ride, and she came home to find the house empty.

Obviously, these are extreme cases of a man’s reaction to his wife’s breast cancer, but this is what I see when I see the “I ♥ Boobies” bracelets. I see love of the body parts, not the person being treated—not the patient, not the victim, not the survivor.

This is an industry where talent alone won’t carry you across the threshold to screenwriting stardom.

Instead, it takes that rare combination of talent, passion, and joyful hard work.

In other words, being prolific.

(INDIGNANT HUFFING) NOT ALL M……ale lions

the more i think about it, the weirder this comment seems. how does this man know that being a male lion is more stressful than being a female lion. has he lived as both a female and male lion before. is this man an Animorph

#m’lion

M’LION
OMFG
also this is more proof of the intense fragility of masculinity
female lions care for the young and hunt, but somehow this dude feels the need to make it seem like male lions work harder and do all the fighting and patrol,… like…. have you ever watched any lion documentaries? female lions do this kinda shit too. they might not fight for “male dominance” of the pride, but they will kick a male’s ass if he’s some weak ass fedora-lion punk
that dude needs to calm his shit and realize that the males of any species are not automatically harder working
i feel like his comment should come with an image of a male lion looking lazy and laying around, wearing a fedora, saying, “this female lion wouldn’t let me mate with her, pridezoned again!”
