My life metaphor: There are days when you feel like if you died it would be okay. You cry and you scream and you wonder why. But then you get your pancakes and think, "I'm so happy that I'm eating these pancakes." And thats when you realize that you're really happy you're alive. You're happy to be enjoying these pancakes. Ánd that's when I realized, it was going to be okay. Now, I live by this statement: "You live for the pancakes."
i will do a lot of things but admitting im cold to my mum who told me to bring a jacket isn’t one of them
happy halloween. its fucking halloween every day from now until the end of october. happy fucking halloween
[Teachers are mostly women because] as school reformers began to realize in the 1820s that schooling should be compulsory — that parents should be forced to send their kids to school, and public education should be universal — they had to come up with a way to do this basically in an affordable manner, because raising taxes was just about as unpopular back then as it is now. So what we see is this alliance between politicians and education reformers in the early 19th century to redefine teaching as a female profession.
They do this in a couple ways: First, they argue that women are more moral in a Christian sense than men. They depict men as alcoholic, intemperate, lash-wielding, horrible teachers who are abusive to children. They make this argument that women can do a better job because they’re more naturally suited to spend time with kids, on a biological level. Then they are also quite explicit about the fact that [they] can pay women about 50 percent as much — and this is going to be a great thing for the taxpayer.
Domestic Violence Awareness Month was first observed in October 1981 by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. Today, organizations such as the National Domestic Violence Hotline, Futures Without Violence, Men Stopping Violence, Magdalene House of Charleston and Save the Children are working to end abuse against women and children.
