It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.
Hugh Laurie  (via katisque)

Now IS when we are ready. We just don’t know it.

Anonymous asked: Hey your theories on racism and how racism against white people cant exist, where did you learn that because there's a lot of confusion on this site about the meaning of the word racism and different definitions (and people would save a lot of time if they were up front about using a different definition) how widely used is your definition? is it taught in colleges and used by sociologist and other experts or is it just tumblr, if its widespread can u let me know some of the authors/writers?

marinashutup:

I use the sociological definition of racism that is taught academically. One of the best explanations of race and racism I’ve read is in the book Why Are All The Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? by Beverly Tatum. Also here’s a link to a great paper on privilege that my race professor had me read last semester: http://jonah.eastern.edu/emme/1999spring/cullinan.html

A very good reference for Writers, too.  The color of a room, or someone’s clothing can convey emotion or a state of being, or even set the tone for a setting or a situation.

Colors often come with ingrained connotations - they certainly have strong meanings in Asian cultures, and in European cultures they have intrinsically understood meanings.

Red - passion, blood, anger, fire (for example)

This is going in my writer’s journal.

9 photos that prove these “Women Against Feminism” still need feminism

Anti-feminist woman. Sounds like an oxymoron, doesn’t it?

But that’s not the case for the “Women Against Feminism,” a community of women emerging on Tumblr and Facebook, uniting to celebrate their distaste for mainstream feminist movements. Through photos and signs, these women make their message crystal-clear: They don’t ever want to be called a feminist. 

Here are some examples highlighting the multiple flaws in these arguments, in the hopes that the ongoing conversation about feminism can eradicate these messages for good.
