"make up is false advertisement!"


"i view women as products"

If you went on a few dates with a charming, fit-looking guy, decided to invite him upstairs, and after he took off his shirt he unstrapped a hidden girdle and his massive gelatinous kegbelly rippled forth, you would be pissed too.

did you really just compare a woman putting some powder on her face to a guy literally reshaping his entire body

Makeup does reshape the body. Highlighting and contouring reshapes the way the face looks. Makeup reshapes the eyebrows and eyes, gives false length to lashes and even reshapes the lips if you want. 

It’s not a far off comparison. If you are wearing enough makeup to do all these things (reshape face shape, eyebrows, lips, eyes and wearing false eyelashes) I personally think it is like wearing a mask. It’s not you you’re showing the world. It’s makeup. It’s the you that you want to be. I’m almost comparable to catfishing on the internet.

Whether or not that’s a problem, I don’t give a shit. It’s you’re life, do what you want. But some people obviously feel lied to when they go on a date with someone who looks completely different without makeup. It’s something to consider when dating. 



Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

For those who don’t understand social anxiety:


-It is not cute

-It is hell

-Want to order pizza? Too fucking bad

-Want to go to a party? Be prepared to want to leave after 5 seconds

-Need to ask a salesperson for a different size? Guess you’re not getting it

-Hungry but it’s crowded in the restaurant? No food for you

-Social anxiety SUCKS

-It keeps you from doing things you want to do

-It makes you feel like shit

-Stop romanticizing it

-Social anxiety is absolute HELL

I can’t even laugh…cause this shit is true

I can’t laugh either. Realest thing ever.







If you have suffered a tragedy and someone says, “you’re in my prayers” with sincerity, and you respond with some egotistical shit about being atheist you are an emotionally inept moron.

For real though like…

there’s also the very real possibility that this happened to op and then they came online to moan about someone who’s going through a tragedy like lol wow you’re so sincere about hoping for their wellbeing!!!

Sorry that they are going through a tragedy and maybe are not themselves and perhaps have a short temper at the moment and maybe are kinda offended by the idea of you not actually doing anything to help them.

Like, saying ‘you’re in my prayers’ to an atheist is literally like saying ‘i’m too busy to actually take any time out of my day to be there for you during this tragedy, so I’m just going to talk to my imaginary friend about it instead’. 

Atheists normally put up with enough of that bullshit, I think they are allowed to be offended every once in a while, especially when they are actually going through something.

More and more I think there’s an element of fiction writing that’s performative. If you want your stories to carry a particular charge of feeling, you have to experience that feeling while you’re working. I don’t know that you can fake it, or at least I don’t know that I’ve ever been able to fake it, because the choices you make when you’re writing—the rhythms you adopt, the phrases you construct, the effect one word has when it’s nestled alongside another—are so highly nuanced, and have so much to do with the ultimate emotional effect of a story, so that if you aren’t feeling along with your sentences, your instincts will gradually lead you astray.

This is, no surprise, really really great.

This is really interesting! Do you guys feel this way when you write? I think I only do sometimes, and I would categorize those times as when I feel “inspired” or when “the muses speak to me”, etc. But it’s definitely not how I feel when I’m slogging away at something.

This is really weird because I’m pretty sure I wrote the comment right above this one, but it’s not sourced anywhere. Also weird that I can find something on Tumblr and be sure that I wrote it.

I think it’s so attractive when you’re with a girl who comes off as a hard ass, because when you make her moan she’s so vulnerable and you realize in that moment you broke everything she built.

holy fuck


is there a trick to hiding hickeys
or do I just go ahead and accept this

ACCEPT IT! People who comment are just jelly



Women should NOT be forced to feed their babies in a bathroom, all because we live in a misogynistic, porn-warped society that’s been brainwashed to believe that female breasts used for anything other than male pleasure is “indecent”. Support public breast feeding and end the porn culture.

It’s ironic that this is tagged NSFW

who tagged it that?
