I really hate it when men say that they don’t “understand women”. “Women” is not a subject in school. Women are PEOPLE. Try understanding us as PEOPLE not as the mysterious “emotional creatures” that you’ve made us out to be. Some women are complex; some are very easy to read. We are not a monolith.
So many people glorify and romanticize “busy”. I do not. I value purpose. I believe in resting in reason and moving in passion. If you’re always busy/moving, you will miss important details. I like the mountain. Still, but when it moves, lands shift and earth quakes.

"Too often we see female characters pitted against each other for jobs or for men. While the ladies on Brooklyn Nine-Nine are certainly competitive, they do not tear each other down or view each other as rivals. [They] are all wildly different characters, but they come together to support each other as friends and colleagues." (x)
Q:I've found one of the main issues of rape culture is not that (cis) men aren't taught not to rape. It's they're taught they can get away with no consequence if they do.
There’s a reason why Neil deGrasse Tyson’s views on race are completely overlooked and why even I was never aware of them until recently. Science nerds will make a billion photosets and quotes about the new Cosmos and speak on everything Neil gets into even the science of the…
