The Arrow of Time, Diego Goldberg
Every year on June 17 — that’s his anniversary with his wife — Goldberg takes a portrait of everyone in his family, and adds it to this project. There are no formal preparations, so the photos reflect the way each person looked on that day. There is no fancy equipment either. Goldberg uses his Nikon — at first he used film, but now he shoots with digital — to take the pictures. "Even if everybody has a camera, and anybody can do it, nobody thought of such a simple idea." But, he adds, "sometimes the simplest ideas are the best."
Diego says he gets mail every day from all over the world, and viewers express one of two things: “I will do it when I form a family” or “How come I didn’t think of it?” In response, Diego says: "Find your own angle and stick to it. After a couple of years you’ll see it was worth the effort."

Six Word Story #30 (via bl-ossomed)
#oh god but bones finding this scrawled on a piece of paper after coming home from a shift #knowing that before he left- jim and he had gotten into a huge fight #again #about jims recklessness #and how bones said jim didn’t think about what his look without leaping nature might do to the other half of this relationship #about how its basically killing him to see jim leave for a mission and not know if he’s coming back #to patch jim up time after time #he left for work leaving jim there alone #which gave jim time to feel guilty. to blame himself. #in his hurry and through the tears in his eyes he scratched this out on a piece of paper. bones doesn’t deserve to feel pain and worry like #that. and now he wont have to (via)
#u gh #but of course bones crumples the paper in his fist #and hunts jim down #he finds him staring up at the stars with blank eyes #bones flicks the little paper ball at jim’s head before sitting down beside him #says ‘you shouldn’t be so dramatic’ in a shaky voice as he clutches his hands around his knees to keep them from trembling #(steadiest hands on the ship- ha. not without jim to support the rest of him.) #and jim lets out a sound that’s supposed to be a laugh but sounds more like he just got punched #so bones leans over and kisses him #catches the side of jim’s mouth because jim is hesitant #not sure if he’s welcome #and then bones is whispering ‘dont you dare leave. dont ever leave. #i love you so fucking much.’ #over and over #and suddenly they’re clinging to each other so tight they may not ever let go (via riddermarks)
Let’s see feminists push for female inclusion to the draft.
2. Most feminists, myself included, want to completely abolish the draft and selected service.
The idea of “women and children first” wasn’t invented by women - it was invented by men
Just another part of the patriarchy, I suppose? How dare those men try to stop us from drowning
First of all, it was never even a thing. Women and Children First was not ever a widely used practice for evacuating ships.
In fact, let’s look at some actual facts: While the phrase first appeared in the 1860 novel Harrington: A Story of True Love, by William Douglas O’Connor. [source]
As a code of conduct, “women and children first” has no basis in maritime law, and according to University of Greenwich disaster evacuation expert Professor Ed Galea, in modern-day evacuations people will usually “help the most vulnerable to leave the scene first. It’s not necessarily women, but is likely to be the injured, elderly and young children.”
Furthermore, the results of a 2012 Uppsala University study suggest that the application of “women and children first” may have, in practice, been the exception rather than the rule.
And really. Is this the best yall have? Your best example of sexism against men is a myth about women getting preferential seating in maritime disasters?
Shock of shocks, some 18 year old guy thinks kneejerk memes are somehow better than actually taking the time to do research to see if his pissy attitude is justified.
And the rest of his tumblr is just whining about women. I bet he’s a devil with the ladies.
ladies i know you couldn’t vote until like 1920 and the government still basically owns your bodies but LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT SOMETHING I LEARNED FROM THIS LEO DICAPRIO MOVIE THAT WILL FLIP THIS SHIT WIIIIDE OPEN
Who really benefits from the pink ribbon campaigns: the cause or the company? In showing the real story of breast cancer and the lives of those who fight it, this film reveals the co-opting of what marketing experts have labeled a “dream cause.”
If you’re a woman, take the time to watch the documentary Pink Ribbons, Inc.
Watch it on
Youtube (for now…) (x)
Glad to see this on Tumblr. I don’t Pink. I don’t Run for a Cure. Write a check to your favorite women’s health charity.
I want a cure, I want research and support services and free diagnosis and treatment, I want lives saved. I do not give a flying fuck about pink ribbons, when less than 25% of Komen’s budget goes into research, but they do litigiously pursue competing organizations for trademark infringement.
Find an org that is all about research or care or free services or support and write a check, click a donate button, give to someone who calls you but stop supporting an org that doesn’t do the actual work.
When my grandma beat breast cancer, she wanted to do Race for the Cure, so my family made a team. It lasted two years before we realized how little it actually did for anyone. I’ve always avoided any charity that spends so much on branding itself. I’d much prefer to do my own research and find something that’s worthy of support.
i am fucking crying
Now someone needs to insert a gif here of that little dinosaur from The Land Before Time going, “Yep! Yep! Yep!”
No more excuses.
I will forever reblog this
It’s sort of horrifying that we all know what they’re talking about without them really saying it.. that it’s become that much of a norm in our society that we just know.
This reporter’s scream is just hilarious.
anonymous prompt: Jim gets tired of sleeping with women (he can’t ever forget who he really wants to be with: Bones). He welcomes the advances of an alien male when they’re in shore leave and is about to leave with him when Bones grabs him in such an alpha male way the alien…
