Do not hate the kids who read Wuthering Heights because of Twilight.
Do not hate the kids who support LGBTQ rights because of Glee.
Do not hate the kids who call themselves feminists because of Beyonce. 
Do not hate the kids who read LotR because of GoT. 
Do not hate the kids who question beauty standards because of All About that Bass. 

Support them. Encourage them. Protect them at all costs. 
I don’t care how you learned it. You are learning good things.

Bra Fitting 101. This changed my life

Ladies of Tumblr, do yourself a huge favor and watch this video. Your lives will change for the better.

i wore a B cup forever and was in a stripclub one night and got scolded by the dancers who said honey no you are a D. 

went to lane bryant, got measured like the beginning of this video and was told I was DD almost DDD. 

so now I wonder what I *ACTUALLY* am. 

Shops actually measure like in the start if the video? Wow. I only ever went marks and Spencer’s when I was growing up but they moved to fitting by sight. So I just sort of try bras on instead. According to this I am a 42H in England. Yeah. Not that I don’t believe it, it’s just I ain’t paying those prices. Biggest I can find in standard shops tends to be a 40F (sometimes G) and the 40 slides up so I have to get the 38. So yeah, while I probably am a 42H… 38G can be found for £4 as opposed to like £40. I know which one I’m going with! Small boobed people don’t understand the prices of big bras! We also have a lot less choice :( …. On the plus side though, I always have pillows with me :)

For many Muslim Americans, 9/11 was a double punch of tragedy and bigotry

The actions of 19 Islamic extremists on 9/11 left an indelible mark on America. Today, millions pause to commemorate the attacks’ 13th anniversary, to honor the victims and to remember that all life is special and sacred. But there’s an untold story amid the many speeches and moments of silence — one filled with a different kind of pain, grief and strong sense of loss. 

Those stories are now being told on social media

I am so sick of people trying to claim 50 Shades of Grey will not be able to have a negative effect on society because it’s “just a book”. The Bible was just a book. The Communist Manifesto was just a book. Mein Kampf, To Kill a Mockingbird, 1984, The Quran, freaking Harry Potter were all “just books”. If you keep saying literature and media don’t have the potential to change countries, or cultures, or the world, then you’re just deluding yourself.
