❝ We tend to think animals are lower than us, but all the scientists in the world couldn’t design and operate a bumblebee’s wing. We can’t jump or run very fast, and we can’t carry vast weights like an ant can. We can’t see in the dark and we can’t fly except crammed in a noisy tube like sardines, which doesn’t count. Humans compared to animals are almost totally deaf, and we can’t smell a fart in an elevator by their standards. We are finite and separate, and neurotic, while the consciousness of an animal is at peace and eternal. We strive and go crazy to become more important. Animals rest and sleep and enjoy the company of each other. We think we have evolved upwards from animals but we have lost almost all of their qualities and abilities. The idea that animals don’t have consciousness or that they don’t have a soul is rather crass. It shows a lack of consciousness. They talk, they have families, they feel things, they act individually or together to solve problems, they often care of their young as a tribal unit. They play, they travel, and medicate themselves when they get sick. They cry when others in the herd die, they know about us humans. Of course they have a soul, a very pristine one. We humans are only now attempting with the recent rise in consciousness to achieve the soul that animals have naturally. ❞

i love the silent exasperation from male acquaintances, that know i am a feminist, when we walk up to a door together and they don’t know if they should hold the door open for me or not. their fear gives me strength. thank you, male acquaintances, for that.

This girl is her high school football teams quarterback. The cheerleader is her girlfriend
I love every second of this
Y cant this be me.
reblog if you’re the gay sister
if anyone asks who you are just say “tatiana maslany” and technically you will always be correct
orphan black is terrifying because fans can’t calm themselves down by saying things like “cosima isn’t going to die, her actress was on set for season 3” because tatiana will never not be on set and this haunts me
The fact that most guys’ first response to a woman wanting equality is “SO CAN I HIT U NOW” is sort of terrifying
Like that’s the first thing you’re concerned about? I just want equal pay and you want to punch me in the face? Cool cool
i promise to reblog this every time it shows up on my dash

↳"BUT WHAT ABOUT THE MEN?!" - Is Feminism Sexist? (x)
Guess what? Feminism is beneficial for men. But even if it wasn’t, empowering women shouldn’t be limited or defined by what men think is important.
