PETITION TO MAKE LEARNING ANOTHER LANGUAGE COMPULSORY IN ENGLISH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES FROM A YOUNG AGE BECAUSE ENGLISH SPEAKERS ARE LAZY ASSWIPES WHO EXPECT EVERYONE TO SPEAK ENGLISH AND NEVER BOTHER EVEN LEARNING ANY OTHER LANGUAGE.
Actually, most of us would love speak another language but our education system sucks so we literally learn 4 words. It’s not because we are all lazy.
AMEN TO THAT
I petitioned to get Japanese taught in my school - nope. French was the only choice. Or I could go to night classes in a college a half an hour away to learn German. Those were my choices.
I know basic French, and basic Irish.
I still really want to learn Japanese…
Well, to be fair, even if you did learn Japanese in high school you’d probably barely reach Level 4 proficiency. A lot of
weebs kids in my school start Japanese, and even those who don’t quit because it was more work than they expected don’t really learn that much, because Japanese is a lot of memorization and it moves slow in secondary school. You’d be better off taking a college or university course (once you graduated) anyways. Have you looked into that?
French was your only choice though in-school? Only one language was offered? At my school, Mandarin, Japanese, French, and Spanish were the four options (and of course since I’m Canadian all of us had to learn French for a certain number of years anyways). As someone who loves languages, it just seems terrible to me that people don’t get the opportunity to learn a language from a young age, much less get a terrible selection once allowed to.

THE UMBRELLA REVOLUTION
We don’t need any tear gas, we’re crying already.
風雨中抱緊自由。 Brace our freedom among the storm.
It is Day 3 since 28th September 2014, the day Hong Kong Police threw Tear Gas to protestors.
Hong Kong citizens are fighting for democracy to select our own Chief Executive. We don’t want China’s claws on our back and hands on our throat.
Please, Tumblr, reblog and spread the word like wildfire.
SAVE HONG KONG.
DO NOT LET HONG KONG FALL.

Found this in a bathroom at my college. A lot of guys had eating disorders in football and wrestling at my school and even in the rec league. I remember guys taking laxatives before weigh ins even.
Male eating disorder awareness ~
Wrestling is infamous for that kind of shit. It’s one of the reasons my brother left the sport— his coaches were ENCOURAGING him to engage in unsafe behavior.
I’ve seen a lot of it the other way round, especially in rugby, I know several men who were encouraged to go to unsafe measures to gain weight.
Yes. ^^^ The masculinization of eating disorders. I knew some wrestling guys back in high school - it became this competition as to who could lose then keep of their weight the best. The guys would have competitions to see who could go the longest without eating, and if you lost, of course, you were a “pussy”
Thankfully a suspension went on while they reviewed these practices that were of course encouraged by the coaches.
Almost every wrestler I’ve met has engaged in ridiculously dangerous behavior at the encouragement of their coaches and even their own parents. My cousin would do unsafe amounts of exercise and then barely eat or only eat baby food as he dropped weight at alarming rates. But no one ever acknowledges these behaviors as being dangerous because it’s “for a sport”. We need to put an end to this.
My 11-year old brother’s football coach had him run for half an hour in a trash bag so that he would sweat enough to lose 2-3 lb in an hour before a game, so that he’d be in the right weight class. It’s insane. And people, coaches and football parents alike, think this is normal.
My husband dealt with his fears and anxieties about weight by joining wrestling. They made him lose weight in rapid and unhealthy ways. Running with trash bags on in a heated gym was normal. There were days where his coach forbid water; ice cubes only. Most days his “dinner” was one can of tuna fish with a small squirt of mustard. That was usually his only meal for the day. His mom, whom I adore, but who also had great struggles with weight, supported him through these crazy “diets” and unhealthy exercise drills (you weren’t done until you vomited and then you were expected to get up and keep going) because he was losing weight.
Unhealthy body image and eating disorders affect everyone.
Michael calling out Sam’s bullshit
Making jokes about something as common and serious as prison rape isn’t the right way to respond to this, assaulting women is bad and so is rape
white ppl are literally racist until proven otherwise, you can’t trust them. and this isn’t “being mean” or “generalizing” it’s a defense mechanism honestly
You’ve gotta work to unlearn systems of oppression you don’t personally experience, just like all men have to actively unlearn sexist behaviors they’re used to being rewarded for. This isn’t something to be offended by, it’s just something to work on.
God, this is disgusting.

44% of the audience of Guardians of the Galaxy is female and all the speculation states that women went to see it for Chris Pratt’s body. I don’t think that’s fair. Maybe (and this is crazy) they just like kickass movies with space shit and explosions. Maybe women can do things without men being their motivation. Maybe.
I WENT FOR THE TALKING RACCOON MOTHAFUCKAS
I went for groot :)
Maybe people speculate that because women would not shut the heck up about Chris Evans and Andrew Garfield’s butt as they drooled over how tight their superhero costume was.
And a bunch of them turned around and threw tantrums over Jessica Drew’s ass.
People need to realize that there is always gonna be a segment of people who watch things for the sex appeal, no matter what their gender, and whining that a segment of people are watching something ‘just for a body’ is dumb.
plz keep in mind that the riots in glasgow are not simply no voters…they’re extremists….. it’s the orange order… not no voters in general… plz make that distinction. the orange order is bad. people who voted against independence aren’t. even if u disagree w/ them, ur general run of the mill no voter is not out there rioting. keep in mind there were like 3 million no voters… stop lumping them all in w/ the orange order
Why isn’t anyone talking about this?
Watch non black cosplayers and lovers of cosplay stay silent on this.
Man what in the FUCK
“Watch non black cosplayers and lovers of cosplay stay silent on this.”
How about you take your white guilt/racism and shove it?
Look how many notes this has.
Are you going to seriously argue that not a single one of them happens to be white?
And, of course, here we have tumblr turning another tragedy into a pissing contest. Thank you tumblr-user lareinaana for being such a twit.
