THIS IS THE NEW FEMINIST THEME SONG OF MY LIFE
THIS IS MORE THAN I COULD HAVE EVER ASKED FOR
The First Grader (2010)
Beautiful movie based on the true story of Kimani Maruge, an 84 year old villager and a Mau Mau veteran, who decides to enroll in school for the first time to educate himself after hearing an announcement on the radio about the Kenyan government’s offering of free primary school education to “all”. All while facing resistance from the public’s claims of an “old man” taking up space.

12/12/13: Patrick Kane entertains at the Lurie Children’s Hospital (X)
That’s it, I can no longer handle the Blackhawks this week. First that article, then the puppies, now this? TOO ADORABLE. JE REFUSE.
I’ve been resisting these photosets so hard but now I can no longer do so, fuck yooooooooooou Patrick Kane.
I can’t even see his face, but I can see the little wee baby’s face, and OH MY GOD. Oh my god. It’s enough. The pure unadulterated bliss on that kid’s face, like sixteen Christmases have all come at once.
GO ON WITHOUT ME. LEAVE ME HERE.
We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls “you can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful otherwise you will threaten the man.” Because I am female I am expected to aspire to marriage I am expected to make life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Marriage can be a source of love, and joy and mutual support, but why do we do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same. We raise girls to see each others as competitors. Not for jobs or accomplishments which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the ways that boys are. Feminist; a person who believes in the social, political and economic equality of the sexes.
You sadists, why are there a million different gifs of this floating around.
YOU ARE REBLOGGING THESE GIFS. IT IS A VICIOUS CIRCLE.
LISTEN, THE RULE OF THE INTERNET IS THAT IF YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM FEELS, THE PROPER RECOURSE IS TO INFLICT THEM UPON OTHERS.
