Yesterday I learned that tampons were not originally created for ~feminine hygiene~ but for plugging up bullet wounds for WW1 and the nurses started using them and were like actually this is p effective and voila tampons thanks WW1
so what you’re saying is that tampon commercials should be shot like war films
Are you saying that periods are equivalent to bullet wounds
"[T]here is evidence of tampon use throughout history in a multitude of cultures. The oldest printed medical document, papyrus ebers, refers to the use of soft papyrus tampons by Egyptian women in the fifteenth century B.C. Roman women used wool tampons. Women in ancient Japan fashioned tampons out of paper, held them in place with a bandage, and changed them 10 to 12 times a day." [x]

The most frustrating thing about being on tumblr is that it made me conscious about everything thats wrong in the world concerning sexism, racism and misogyny and I’m not eloquent enough in real life to defend myself when someone confronts me.

the worst way for friendships to end is for literally nothing to go wrong, you just stop talking. they stop messaging you to see how youre doing and you get sick of being the first one to initiate conversation so you just let the friendship go and wonder how that person is doing and never hear from them again

girls will be made fun of for literally anything. they can’t even like food establishments without being made fun of by everyone, even supposed feminists. stop making fun of women for arbitrary things, it’s not funny, and it literally only makes girls ashamed of themselves for yet another thing. stop

The director, Tom Hooper said ‘Eddie have you ever been on a horse?’ I said ‘Yes.’ […] It was then that I realised a big part of the cliche of actors lying in auditions is that you should probably try to do the thing you said you can do before filming starts. Anyway, I nearly killed people as the horse galloped off at a hundred miles an hour after I gave it the slightest nudge. Tom came out with his megaphone and shouted, ‘You’re a fucking liar, Redmayne!’

"It’s not just me and Peeta anymore. Snow threatened to have you killed."
Gale is not even fazed by this. This is just a fact of his life. Snow can kill him down the mines, from a cold gone bad that requires antibiotics, he can kill him electrifying the fence, he can starve him to death. Snow can kill him without pulling a trigger, and Gale knows this so this is not news for him.
The fact that Snow can kill him does not surprise him, so you know what this kid does?
He asks “Anyone else?”
He wants to know who else was threatened because Snow is already killing him slowly and that is nothing new. Just another day in the life of Gale.
