A friend linked me these because he thought they’d be relevant to me, he was extremely correct. If these pieces of advice aren’t relevant to you, improve yourself until they are.
A good chunk of Tumblr could benefit from this.

If you use YouTube, you need to know this.
You’ve heard all these rumblings about Net Neutrality over the past several months. Let’s get real: this is about controlling online video. It is estimated that by 2017, video content will account for 80-90% of all global Internet traffic.
This isn’t just about not being able to binge-watch a series on Netflix. It’s about the future of online video as we know it.
Whether your YouTube channel is home to daily vlogs, short films, or just that one video from when the cinnamon challenge seemed like a good idea, you’re a video creator. Your content and comments help shape this community. Let’s keep it that way.
Net Neutrality means that your YouTube videos reach people at the same speed as clips from last night’s episode of the Tonight Show. It means a level playing field for video creators looking to reach an audience. But new Net Neutrality rules could mess that up.
Here’s the deal: Telecommunications companies already charge us to access the Internet through our homes and our phones. New FCC rules could allow them to also charge content providers (like YouTube, Netflix, and even PBS) for access to our eyeballs. It could create a fast lane for Jimmy Fallon’s clips, and slow lane for your YouTube videos.
It is really important that the FCC understands that online video creators care about Net Neutrality. Even if you’ve only ever uploaded ONE VIDEO, you are a creator and you have a voice.
If you can, please add your channel to our petition. We’ll deliver this to the FCC in September and demonstrate that the online video community cares about this issue.
Foraging in Iceland: Yarrow
Despite the scarcity and starkness of the Icelandic landscape, I’ve bumped into a number of herbs that grows in wild abundance. Yarrow skin washes and leaf poultices can staunch bleeding and help to disinfect cuts and scrapes, slows down heavy menstruation, and expels toxin.
Almost 20 years ago, writer Andrew Solomon fell into a deep depression. In this talk from TEDxMet, he speaks eloquently and openly about his struggle with “the family secret we all share,” but that no one wants to talk about. If you are a human or know a human, you have to watch this talk, but — be warned — you might just find yourself in tears.
Well, seeing as how “female feminists” are the ones that defined what we actually count as rape I’m going to go ahead and say maybe those aren’t the most trustworthy statistics. Just maybe.
im fucking cackling, the cdc itself cites forced penetration and forced to penetrate as exactly the same numbers, not counting prison rape for men
that means women rape just as much as men outside of institutions
'look at the statistics' we have, honey
