Brenna Twohy - “Fantastic Breasts and Where To Find Them” (NPS 2014)

"My sex cannot be packaged. My sex is magic. It is part of a bigger story. I am whole. I exist when you are not fucking me."

One of the most memorable poems we saw at the National Poetry Slam this year. Harry Potter, feminism, sex positivity.

It’s Tuesday, it’s raining, and someone broke into our car (no windows broken and nothing taken, fortunately, but they wrenched the glove compartment off and made a mess). If it weren’t for my partner and friends, I wouldn’t get through the days lately. So I made you guys a thing featuring the most awesome friends ever (Sirs Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart).

Land of the free home of the rich

What really scares me is that they all have significantly cheaper health care AND education, which means Americans not only make the least, they pay the most.

…wait, what?

* $9.75 and a life supply of maple syrup

Another  big caveat here being that if you work in a service industry(food service, cosmetology, etc.) YOUR minimum wage can be as low as $2.13/hr. Businesses are “supposed” to give you the difference if you don’t make enough in tips to make the $7.25 wage, but that rarely happens(it never once happened to me during my 5+ years in the industry).

So this is what trust looks like.

Funny, my first thought was “So this is what the patriarchy looks like.”

Yup. This is how women are supposed to trust men. With their lives.

Woman : “Hey, can we just… Drop the bow?”Man : “WHY DON’T YOU TRUST ME I’M NOT A VIOLENT GUY, YOU ARE INSULTING ME THINKING I WILL HURT YOU!!!”Woman : “No it’s just… Well I’m afraid.”Man : “But why? Look at me, I’m not afraid. And we’re equal, look, we pull the bow together.”Woman : “I think we’re not equal, you can kill me with the arrow and I can’t.”Man : “What? So you would like to be able to kill me? You’re so agressive!”Woman : “That’s not what I mean, we were talking about equality : you can hurt me, I can’t.”Man : “Of course you can. You can hit me with the bow if you want.”Woman : “That’s not the same thing, it will never kill you.”Man : “Oh, you always complaining, stop victimising yourself! Do I talk about the difficulty of holding the arrow? Of the responsibility it giving to me?”[…]Etc, etc.Every debates about gender equality, ladies and gentleman.


omg the comments.  Brilliant.

I keep forgetting what the differences are in the over the counter pain relievers, so I made a handy chart.

THANK YOU OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As someone who suffers from migraines too often, this is perfect. Please share this helpful chart!!

Also, tylenol is good for nerve pain, like fibromyalgia.
