"For the record, feminism by definition is: ‘The belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes.’
I started questioning gender-based assumptions when at eight I was confused at being called “bossy,” because I wanted to direct the plays we would put on for our parents—but the boys were not.When at 14 I started being sexualized by certain elements of the press.When at 15 my girlfriends started dropping out of their sports teams because they didn’t want to appear “muscly.”When at 18 my male friends were unable to express their feelings.I decided I was a feminist and this seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Apparently I am among the ranks of women whose expressions are seen as too strong, too aggressive, isolating, anti-men and, unattractive.
Why is the word such an uncomfortable one?”

In 2009, Pratt was cast on Parks and Rec for a six-episode arc as the oafish boyfriend of Rashida Jones’ character. That soon changed. “Almost at the point of the audition we were like, ‘Oh, we have to reconceive this, because this guy’s the funniest person we’ve ever seen. We’re not letting that guy go,” says series co-creator Michael Schur - Entertainment Weekly

sinosure:

You guys might have seen some photos being reblogged of some food donations being place outside the memorial in George Square yesterday.

A group of Yes voters gathered to listen to a man and his son talk about how they have been running their foodbank here in Glasgow for a few years now.

People started to head to the Sainbury’s across the road to buy dry food, tins of food, breakfast cereals, juice, water, and anything else that the foodbank could take. They carried it back across to George Square for the guys to take back with them.

This is what our city is. I’m so angry that those Loyalist scum started riots, attacked people, burned our flags. But I’m so proud of these people for making Glasgow a better place.

This is a link to their Facebook page. If you can, please donate.
