Every introvert alive knows the exquisite pleasure of stepping from the clamor of a party into the bathroom and closing the door.

  • 12-year-old girl:

    I don't want kids when I grow up.

  • Society:

    You'll change your mind when you get older. You're only 12. You're too young to know what you want.

  • 16-year-old girl:

    I'm pregnant.

  • Society:

    How could you be so stupid? Do you know anything about safe sex? You should be ashamed.

  • 20-year-old woman:

    I'm a single mother with an infant son.

  • Society:

    You should've gone to college first. You need a stable career before you can support a child.

  • 33-year-old woman:

    I'm married and my spouse and I both have stable careers. I have two young daughters now.

  • Society:

    You're not staying home? Who's going to take care of them? You're just going to put them in day care while you work? That's selfish of you. You can't expect to raise decent kids with a full-time job.

  • 45-year-old woman:

    I just had my first child.

  • Society:

    Why would you have a child when you're that old? Do you realize the health risks of being pregnant at your age? When your kid is a teenager you'll be a senior citizen. That's inconsiderate of you.

  • 60-year-old woman:

    I haven't had any children.

  • Society:

    Your life must be so unfulfilling. Is there something wrong with you? Why didn't you want kids? How strange.

fuck-yeah-feminist:

Come on, America.

Protesters upset about the smearing of Mike Brown converged at CNN headquarters.

people complain sooo much about social media and “twitter activism” completely ignoring that without social media the only way anyone would know whats going on is through media controlled by straight, white, capitalist men

You cannot find peace by avoiding life.
