This hit me like a ton of bricks. I’m still feeling a little nauseous after this realization.

I also put it on DA

This is a wonderful presentation. I just had to add these:

Don’t ever let anyone tell you that gender egalitarianism isn’t possible among humans, or that our species’ “natural” state is one of gender oppression.

^Let’s all remember this the next time someone tries to say that Africans are all a bunch of savages compared to us civilized folk.

THIS IS SO IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE TO READ AND KNOW

And so we finally get to the heart of the matter.

Some thoughts:

—I don’t know what world you live in or how old you are (I’d guess fairly young, but that’s a guess), but I walk around all the time and rarely get “f-ed” with. I’ve walked around in cities and communities all over the world and…

Tupperwolf: Suicide reporting on the internet

vruba:

Trigger warning: lots of suicide talk.

This post is not about Aaron Swartz. Neither is it about his death. It’s about some of the responses I’ve seen to his death.

You can tell people who’ve been around suicide before from those who haven’t. The ones for whom this is new are fitting it to a…

From the Department of Awesome Anthropomorphic Foodstuffs come these wonderful photos taken by a farmer in Hyogo prefecture, Japan, who unearthed a daikon radish that strongly resembles a figure swinging its arms and running for its life. It looks like it would be right at home as a creature in a Miyazaki film.

The imaginative farmer, who goes by the twitter handle @konsai_umemama, decided that such a fantastic vegetable deserves a more interesting fate than ending up on someone’s plate. And so they’ve set about placing the radish in a variety of humourous situations and then taking these great photos.

After going viral on Reddit’s ‘Funny’ section for being odd-looking with facial hair, the girl above gave the following graceful and fresh response:

“Hey, guys. This is Balpreet Kaur, the girl from the picture. I actually didn’t know about this until one of my friends told on facebook. If the OP wanted a picture, they could have just asked and I could have smiled :) However, I’m not embarrased or even humiliated by the attention [negative and positve] that this picture is getting because, it’s who I am. Yes, I’m a baptized Sikh woman with facial hair. Yes, I realize that my gender is often confused and I look different than most women. However, baptized Sikhs believe in the sacredness of this body - it is a gift that has been given to us by the Divine Being [which is genderless, actually] and, must keep it intact as a submission to the divine will. Just as a child doesn’t reject the gift of his/her parents, Sikhs do not reject the body that has been given to us. By crying ‘mine, mine’ and changing this body-tool, we are essentially living in ego and creating a seperateness between ourselves and the divinity within us. By transcending societal views of beauty, I believe that I can focus more on my actions. My attitude and thoughts and actions have more value in them than my body because I recognize that this body is just going to become ash in the end, so why fuss about it? When I die, no one is going to remember what I looked like, heck, my kids will forget my voice, and slowly, all physical memory will fade away. However, my impact and legacy will remain: and, by not focusing on the physical beauty, I have time to cultivate those inner virtues and hopefully, focus my life on creating change and progress for this world in any way I can. So, to me, my face isn’t important but the smile and the happiness that lie behind the face are. :-) So, if anyone sees me at OSU, please come up and say hello. I appreciate all of the comments here, both positive and less positive because I’ve gotten a better understanding of myself and others from this. Also, the yoga pants are quite comfortable and the Better Together tshirt is actually from Interfaith Youth Core, an organization that focuses on storytelling and engagement between different faiths. :) I hope this explains everything a bit more, and I apologize for causing such confusion and uttering anything that hurt anyone.”



Everything she says is so great and inspiring! ^^^ I suggest you read it :)
