I’m doing a project on gay rights in today’s society.
So if you believe that same sex couples should be allowed to get married, please reblog this.
This would be a lot of help, thank you.
Ah, yet another sexist cis man shows that he completely lacks the basic skill of comparison.
There are MANY things he could have said in response to the tampon thing, but this is the most ridiculous. Tampons/pads/etc are a necessity, unless he wants me to bleed all over his couch.
this makes so little sense… what…
Am I the only one that thinks it’s idiotic/slightly pretentious to expect free pads/tampons?
Considering people who have periods do not have the choice whether or not they bleed from their vagina once a month, tampons/pads cost money, and some people have a very low income, I would certainly hope you’re the only one who thinks this. Tampons/pads are not a luxury. They are a necessity, because manufactured period hygiene products are the safest way to deal with the menstrual period.
Hey just a reminder to everyone who forgets, period blood isn’t just an inconvenience, it’s a health hazard. It is SO important to keep it contained and it doesn’t help that it’s so expensive.
At the very least, they shouldn’t be taxed.

Autism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.
Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.
“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”
Much better version of the same subject matter I posted earlier.
