hi, i'm Liz. i'm a 23 year old cis woman who blogs about a wide range of things; anything from varying feminist issues, Fall Out Boy, things that make me laugh, pretty pictures, to most recently Marvel related anythings. i fully admit to having a Sebastian Stan problem. occasionally there will be nsfw posts that i will tag accordingly, as well as quite a lot of cussing :p right now i'm working as a health aide at a school and trying to figure out what i want to be doing with my life. rebloging cute people seems to be helping me get through the less pleasant times, and i hope y'all enjoy the mish-mash!

The concept that there are people who’s entire career is based on stalking individuals (mostly women, let’s be real) and photographing them at the beach when they’re just trying to have fun with their families so they can sell the photos to media companies that then scrutinize and rate their bodies as if they belong to the public in the first place is so mind-numbingly outrageous, I just start making angry volcano noises every time I think about it too much.

THIS! ALL OF THIS!

look how beautiful and happy she looks while not giving a fuck about what anyone else thinks.

Is Junk Food Really Cheaper?
The answer is NO.
The “fact” that junk food is cheaper than real food has become a reflexive part of how we explain why so many Americans are overweight, particularly those with lower incomes. I frequently read confident statements like, “when a bag of chips is cheaper than a head of broccoli …” or “it’s more affordable to feed a family of four at McDonald’s than to cook a healthy meal for them at home.”
(via sunfoundation)

this bullshit fills me with a very specific kind of rage. so, TIME TO DEBUNK!
that meal from mcdonalds takes virtually no time to acquire AND is available almost anywhere.
the second meal? that “salad” is lettuce … with nothing else, not even dressing unless its just olive oil or some milk i guess? gross.
also thats the price of each serving, not an entire loaf of bread, a bottle of olive oil, etc. that stuff adds up which means you have to have a lot of money at one time to buy it all.
that meal probably took an hour and a half to make, which is a long fucking time when you work multiple jobs or are caring for a lot of people or dont have help! seriously, if you are a single parent of three who works, is spending an hour and a half every night preparing a meal a likely option?
same with beans and rice! also, you know whats a fucking bummer? eating beans and rice every night because you are poor. ask any person who has done it and they will tell you (you can start with me).
there is a “nutrition” argument here that lacks a follow up: poor people are more likely to be doing physical labor and need more than 571 calories per meal.
you know who is less likely to know how to bake or prepare a chicken? people without access to the internet, or libraries, or who werent taught how to by their parents because their parents worked all the time. access to healthy foods is a classist issue and classism is cyclical, you fucking morons.
seriously, these sorts of infographics make me want to fucking flip tables. do you know why people don’t eat more fresh fruits and vegetables? because fresh fruits and vegetables are expensive, because they take a long time to prepare, because they dont live near a grocery store that has a decent produce section, because they dont have reliable transportation to get groceries to and from the grocery store, because they dont have the energy to plan all of the shit that is involved in making healthy, intentional, filling, balanced meals. basically: poor people get fucked, and then we get BLAMED for being lazy.
eating “healthy”, aka access to fresh fruits and vegetables, is a privilege, first, foremost, always. so fuck you new york times and your ignorant goddamn infographic.
there are SYSTEMATIC REASONS that we do not have equal access to fresh fruits and vegetables. they are very REAL problems. besides, you know, systematic poverty in america, the total mis-distribution of farm subsidies is a perfect place to start. read about that, then either get bent or start working on the actual problem.

Powerful portraits of the Liberians who beat Ebola 

To help humanize the overwhelming statistics, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and senior staff photographer at Getty Images, John Moore, visited an Ebola treatment center of the organization, Doctors Without Borders in Paynesville, Liberia. At the treatment center, survivors spoke about the brothers, sisters, husbands and wives they lost due to the disease. They also spoke of recovery, stigmas they continue to face in their villages and renewed hope.

"Here is the sociological definition of racism that is more useful in discussing race relations because it acknowledges the system of racism as a whole instead of just on a person to person level."
“Yeah but the Merriam Webster dictionary says—”

Well no, you don’t get to say that because racism is already a word with a clearly defined meaning: discriminating against people based on their race. You can’t just get up and say that racism is anything but that

You seem to have difficulty understanding how definitions work. Different disciplines use different definitions. The Merriam Webster dictionary was written by white men who don’t specialize in race relations. It’s not as in depth as the sociological definition of racism. I didn’t just come up with a brand new definition of racism on the spot arbitrarily.

Here’s how I like to explain it. My husband is getting his doctorate in Physics. I am not. When he explains to me what gravity means in the context of his field, I don’t whip out a goddamn dictionary and say, “Nuh-uh! That’s not what the dictionary says it is!” I listen to how it is defined and applied in his field because that’s what is relevant to the discussion. More so, that’s the most detailed and complete definition of the term. Pulling out a dictionary to argue the definition of a word shows a fundamental misunderstanding of how words are defined. Those who use words define them; the dictionary only reflects our usage in the simplest manner it can. And, as it was pointed out above, the people who record these definitions are not representative of the people who use the terms to begin with.

There’s thousands of notes on posts about how unfair it is that there isn’t a wonder woman movie and now that its been officially announced nobody is talking about it?

Like Can I get at least a hell yeah?

It’s almost like people really didn’t want a Wonder Woman movie They just wanted to complain about there not being one

more like people are nervous about how DC will be handling her since her first appearance will be in the Batman V Superman movie that is so far getting no one’s hopes up. and because it’s part of a long string of movies planned to be based off of Man of Steel which wasn’t very good. the most i can offer at the moment is being cautiously hopeful while we wait for more information.

Y’all missed my “believe it when I see it” post, apparently. (And I dare you to find a more rabid Wondy fan than me. I dare you.) IF this movie actually happens after the idea of it being in production-hell for the last 15 years, it will very likely be terrible. So yeah. Hard to get too excited.

important psa about buns

We raised rabbits when I was a child and my sister gave a rabbit a bath (she was 5) and it died..so heed this instruction.

I wasn’t going to reblog this, but then I realized I might save a rabbit.

This is important guys. If your rabbit gets into something gnarly and you HAVE to bathe them:1. Fill a bowl with warm water.2. Get a washcloth. Put it in the water. Squeeze it out until it is just damp. 3. Lightly scrub the dirty area on your bun.4. That is it. DO NOT get your bun wet. Only slightly damp on the part that was dirty. (source)

…I’m getting a bunny soon. I’m glad I read this now.

reblog and retag please. let’s save bunnies!

3D Audio of Centuries by Fall Out Boy (Requested)

What is 3D Audio?

3D audio effects are a group of sound effects that manipulate the sound produced by stereo speakers, surround-sound speakers, speaker-arrays, or headphones. This frequently involves the virtual placement of sound sources anywhere in three-dimensional space, including behind, above or below the listener.

I think the “gamer community” created a perfect environment for nerds to become the bullies they always wanted to be

Tweet 1: I can see a lot of people either avoiding Plan B & ending up pregnant or attempting to take multiple doses & getting sick.
Tweet 2: anyone w a credit card (not everyone, I know) can/should use ella ella-rx.com they’ll ship it overnight $45
SIGNAL BOOST. Ella is another form of emergency contraception/the morning-after pill. It’s more effective than Plan B and can be taken up to FIVE DAYS after your mishap, rather than three days. Please spread this around; with all of the anti-choice legislation flying about and how difficult it can be for some people to get Plan B even OTC (like minors, people living in small towns, etc.), this might be the only way a lot of people can get their hands on the morning-after pill.

Boooooost

I’ve also read that Ella is more effective for plus size people.

This is important. Ella works for everyone. Plan B is not effective for people over 176 pounds. Protect yourself

Everyone?
Boosting the shit outta this.
