Why is everyone being declared a feminist icon? I can understand Miley Cyrus and Lily Allen, but Beyoncé and Rihanna? Who next Niki Minaj?

21 People On What They Would Tell Their 19-Year-Old Selves

  • Jonathan, 55: There is no such thing as “the only one”. You will meet lots of “the ones”. Only commit when the timing is right for the both of you – that can take years for some, and that’s okay.
  • Miranda, 24: Drop pre-med.
  • Isaac, 48: Deodorant does not count as a shower, and that haircut only looked good on Bon Jovi.
  • Anya, 42: Make the conscious decision to be happy, and then stick with it. Society will do everything in its power to convince you that your personal happiness is dependent on something external – beauty, success, wealth, etc. – it isn’t.
  • Parker, 55: 60% of the things you think are important now won’t matter a whit to you by the time you reach 50. The trick is to figure out the important 40% and work it.
  • Megan, 34: He doesn’t love you, and you will be okay.
  • Peter, 58: Don’t let anything stand in your way of taking part (or all) of your junior year abroad. You’ll never again have quite the same opportunity to experience a foreign land, for an extended period of time, in your youth. It is destined to be one of the most memorable aspects of your life.
  • Eleanor, 67: Talk less. Listen more.
  • Donald, 27: There’s a huge difference between who you want to be and who everyone around you wants you to be. Figure out which is which.
  • Camille, 56: Always remember: when falling off a horse, pull your tongue in.
  • Jackson, 57: No one knows anything for sure. They’re all just doing the best they can with what they have, just like you.
  • Vicki, 47: You’ll never have all the answers, so make every question count.
  • Donald, 38: You don’t have to grow up to be the dad you never had.
  • Katelyn, 30: Make the most out of college. You will never again be at a place where your only goal is to learn. Learn a lot, learn often, and learn with reckless abandon.
  • Joshua, 55: Women love to laugh.
  • Annabelle, 38: Drugs are not beautiful, glamorous or opulent. They are not a remedy, a solution, a cure-all, or a cure-anything.
  • Colin, 50: You miss so much life when you sleep until 3 PM. Wake up to see sunrises; they are the most stunning of nature’s masterpieces.
  • Eleanor, 26: Eating two pints of ice cream won’t make you happy. Neither will sprinting 10 miles. Be nice to yourself.
  • Aaron, 52: Don’t forget to ask that girl in the Oberlin library what kind of perfume she’s wearing. You’ll buy it for her in 20 years.
  • Scarlett, 54: Don’t be afraid to be yourself. Those that get you will love you, those that don’t, well, their loss. Just remember: Wherever you are, it’s a party.
  • Zack, 9: I hope you’re awesome. And be nice to girls.

"If black people can say the N-word, why can’t I?"


"If I’m not allowed to wear a Native American head dress, why do they get to wear jeans and sneakers?


"How come it’s considered offensive if I jokingly call myself Latifah but people of color get to give their babies white names?"


"How come my non-white friend gets to tell me when I’m being racist but I don’t get to tell them they are being racist against me?!”

"Um, you can’t be a woman because you don’t have breasts"
There are cis women who don’t have breasts
“You’re not a woman if you don’t give birth”
There are cis women who can’t or don’t give birth
“You only have that body because of hormones”
There are cis women who take hormones
“Because of surgery!”
There are cis women who have cosmetic surgery
There are cis women who have body hair, who have facial hair, who don’t menstruate, who are taller, who are more muscular, who play sports, who have deep voices, who don’t like wearing dresses, who only wear dresses, who suck at doing their own hair and makeup, who play video games, who watch violent movies, who take up space and who refuse to silence themselves for the sakes of others.
When you police trans women, you police all women.

Given these findings and the complexities of interactions between genes and environment, the message of mental illness as being ’genetic’ or ’neurological’ may not only be overly simplistic but also of little use to reduce stigma.

 faig ahmeds Embroidered Art 

When you think of traditional carpets from Azerbaijan, the thought of contemporary art does not quickly spring to mind… but these beautiful, and modern works will change that. Faiq Ahmed, a native of the Eurasian nation, has taken his countries old-school art form and brought it beautifully into the current era, deconstructing the ancient process of weaving and adapting it to todays contemporary art forms.

j’adore le concept, c’est carrément excellent!
