Using #LikeAGirl as an insult is a hard knock against any adolescent girl. And since the rest of puberty’s really no picnic either, it’s easy to see what a huge impact it can have on a girl’s self-confidence. 
We’re kicking off an epic battle to make sure that girls everywhere keep their confidence throughout puberty and beyond, and making a start by showing them that doing it #LikeAGirl is an awesome thing.

"In my work as a documentarian, I have witnessed the confidence crisis among girls and the negative impact of stereotypes first-hand," said Lauren Greenfield, filmmaker and director of the #LikeAGirl video. "When the words ‘like a girl’ are used to mean something bad, it is profoundly disempowering. I am proud to partner with Always to shed light on how this simple phrase can have a significant and long-lasting impact on girls and women. I am excited to be a part of the movement to redefine ‘like a girl’ into a positive affirmation."

So tell us… what do YOU do #LikeAGirl?

-Always

So I found this video originally via an ad on a youtube video I wanted to watch. I was at first going to just skip the ad, like I do most of the time; that is, until I heard the words “run like a girl”. This caught my attention and I decided to keep the advertisement on the screen so I could find out what was going on. I am so glad that I watched the ad as this is such a powerful message that needs to talked about, seen, and shared.

Please, do your part and share this video.

i know you study science so i need your help convincing my friend that drinking alcohol isn't safe for her during cold winter. she argues that being drunk when wearing mini skirts in snow means she will be fine, but it feels wrong.

deansass:

it is wrong.

Alcohol messes up our brain signals and makes our peripheral vessels dilate. So basically, all the warmth in your body travels to your hands, feet, nose, etc.

This is very bad because then your inner organs will not be warmed. During the cold, our body’s natural response is to make our vital organs warm so our liver doesn’t shut down, we don’t get kidney failure, etc etc. This is why people get frostbite.

But alcohol makes sure you don’t get frostbite, and instead you get your vital organs being affected by the cold and thus more possible vital organ failure. It also leads to blood not being pumped well to your heart, so possible heart issues too.

Thomas Jefferson’s Account of the Storming of the Bastille, 225 Years ago:

“…in that instant a discharge from the Bastille killed 4 people of those nearest to the deputies. The deputies retired, the people rushed against the place, and almost in an instant were in possession of a fortification, defended by 100 men, of infinite strength, which in other times had stood several regular sieges & had never been taken.”

Letter from Thomas Jefferson, U.S. Minister to France, to John Jay, Secretary of Foreign Affairs, July 19, 1789, reporting on the events in Paris, (page 538)

From the file unit:  Letters from Thomas Jefferson, 1785 - 1789

Appointed U.S. Minister to France in 1785, Thomas Jefferson was in Paris in July 1789 when the French people rose up against their rulers and the first blood was shed in the opening days of the French Revolution. In his letter to Secretary of Foreign Affairs John Jay, Jefferson recounts how a mob stormed the Bastille, took the stash of arms, freed the prisoners, and seized the “Governor” of the Bastille who was then killed and beheaded in the city streets on July 14, 1789.

Have you ever come across a homeless individual and felt totally uncomfortable?
You see them and you know they are in need, but you are not sure what to do. You know that handing them money is not the best thing. But, you also see that they clearly have some needs. Their lips are chapped. They are hungry. They are thirsty. They are asking for help.
How can you help?
Here is a simple idea - blessing bags.

This was such an easy project. We are now going to keep a few “Blessing Bags” in our car so that when we do happen to see someone on the streets who is homeless, we can hand them a Blessing Bag. I first learned of these bags from my friend, Julie. I am using the picture of her bags (see above) because the ones we took were taken in horrible lighting and turned out really grainy and hard to see what is inside of them.

If you’d like to make your own Blessing Bags, this is what you would need:
Gallon size Ziplock bags
items to go in the bags, such as:
chap stick
packages of tissues
toothbrush and toothpaste
comb
soap
trail mix
granola bars
crackers
pack of gum
band aids
mouthwash
coins (could be used to make a phone call, or purchase a food item)
hand wipes
you could also put in a warm pair of socks, and maybe a Starbucks gift card
Assemble all the items in the bags, and maybe throw in a note of encouragement. Seal the bags and stow in your car for a moment of providence.
This would be a great activity to do with some other families. Each family could bring one of the items going into the bags (ex: toothbrushes). Set up all the items around a table and walk around it with the ziplocks and fill the bags.

oh man i wanna do this

mee tooo. im bout to go to the dollar tree and rack up or a wholesale store.

All these reblogs make me so happy to see. So many amazing people on tumblr

random acts if kindness

please include a couple pairs of socks actually! Socks are among the most highly desired clothing item for homeless individuals

how do you handle criticism so well?

itssexualhour:

it doesn’t bother me, only if it’s a positive criticism, then i’ll try to work on it and shit, but anything that offends me or something that i do, it doesn’t bother me. That kind of criticism usually comes from people who doesn’t have anything better to do than make other people feel bad about themselves, and if u are one of these people i pray for u, i pray for u to not end up working your whole life on macdonalds because u take so much time judging people while u should be studying or finding a hobby other than being a fucking cactus in the ass
