People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.
This is so important. Girls pay attention. Boys, if you are a brother, father, cousin of a girl, pay attention.
What’s on your mind?
Everyone on Facebook looks like they’re having a great time. Fun adventures, deep romances, amazing jobs. It’s enough to make you feel inadequate, but it’s also a lie. Nobody is really as happy as their Facebook wall claims, as this piercing short from HigtonBrothers confirms.
i love sir patrick stewart more with each passing day.
See, guys. This is how you do it. Notice the words “Not all men are like that” are never spoken.
He knows men are like that
his father was like that to his mother
he has experienced the pain firsthand, of what it’s like when men are like that
and he never wants men to be like that again and he fights tooth and nail against the men who are still like that
And moreover, he acknowledges his privilege [as an older white male who is famous/well known] and uses it to speak up. He knows what he is, and he never has to say he’s not like those men he fights against—he never says it, his actions speak loud enough for everyone else to see it.
Sir Patrick Stewart, everyone.
OMFG OKAY SO one of my classmates, L, came into lesson late this morning wearing a full circle princess dress, and eye shadow and eyeliner. He said to our teacher, “Sorry I am late” as we all looked up, he sat down. It was followed by laughter and giggles mostly from girls. Some of the boys were just in awe.
"Why are you wearing a dress, L?" I asked him
“Because I felt like looking pretty today” He smiled confidently but seemed quite conscious that everyone went a little quiet.
THEN my friend (you can see her hand in the picture, holding a blue marker) walks in and says, “WHAT THE FUCK, thats taking the piss.”
I quickly said, ” He looks great, he can wear whatever he wants”
She goes, ” No yeah I KNOW but what the fuck he puts on eyeliner and wears dresses better than I do!”
that’s gonna be me in a few years
he’s hella cute 1000/10
