I’ve met a guy who can sustain a conversation with me while we both speak exclusively in Mary Poppins innuendos. I think I’m in love.
September 28, 1948: Eleanor Speaks in Favor of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
On this day in 1948, United Nations delegate and former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt delivered a speech in Paris entitled, “The Struggle for Human Rights.” Her goal was to create a sense of unity among nations through the common principles of the Declaration, a document that she helped draft and approve. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was approved by the UN General Assembly that December.

I can’t find a source. Does anyone have any? I won’t believe it until I get a source.
This should be posted in school hallways.
Why do you all assume guys are pro rape?oh my fucking god shut up. She never said y’all are pro rape, but have you ever been to a high school or middle school? Boys are making rape jokes whenever they can and they think it’s hilarious but whenever a girl says she’s on her period y’all get uncomfortable. We understand that all men aren’t this way but she is talking about the ones who are. Chill.
Marge is such a great mom
She gets it.
Yay for payday :)
this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1
A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes
A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes
A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes
A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes
A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes
That’s some bullshit right there.
Let’s take it a step further. For every hour a white man works, a black woman has to work 86 minutes to earn as much money. 57.6 hours a week compared to the white man’s 40.
Take it another step further. Assuming a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job, from Thursday 12:45pm through Friday end of business, a white man gets paid for his work, a black woman is, by comparison, working for free.
THE LAST LINE
This. I am tired of seing this numbers without thinking about woc. (via arobynsong)
