For real though, I often struggle with motivation and self improvement, and this silly website has really helped me over the last few weeks. I already see an improvement in my productivity, eating habits, and general motivation. 

I’ve used HabitRPG every day for about a year and it’s seriously so helpful! You can even add your friends and track their progress, too.

And look at all my pets!

The more you do, the more you can unlock.

It’s extremely motivating and you should sign up!

Totally OT to this particular blog but OMG YES. I’ve been playing around with this for a couple of months and it’s the only thing I’ve ever tried that’s kept me motivated to Do Stuff consistently for this long. PLUS I’m sort of in a pit of depression (not so much the sad kind,but the kind where Stuff is harder to Do) and this is STILL helping. DO IT DO IT DO IT. I love this site.

Incredible work, everyone. These numbers are huge.
How huge? With 10,000 sites participating in yesterday’s net neutrality effort, a total of 304,993 calls got made. You made nearly half of them. Bravo. 
Also…which one of you made that 61 minute call? What’d you guys talk about? 
The fight isn’t over, by the way. You can follow themediafix and demand-progress to keep up with everything that happens from now until the FCC votes.

Okay now, say it with me everyone;

squidsqueen:

Health is not a moral imperative.

The state of a person’s health does not define their worth or their success.

Being unhealthy is not an invitation for judgment or ridicule.

Framing health as an achievement is not only misguided, it is actively harmful.

Basing your respect for a person on the state of their health is violence.

It is just a body. The more you can be neutral about a body, the better. Bodies change, and many times they change from things out of your control. Bodies do not, and never will, have anything to do with your value.

Obviously Tumblr is already all over this shit, but here’s another link to my post at The Shape of a Mother about this. Take action, guys!

Of all the 3D movies Walt Disney Animation Studios has made, Wreck-It Ralph is the Magnum Opus, not Tangled or Frozen. Everyone is going on about how Frozen was so feminist because “Anna was saved by her sister  instead of by a man.”, “Anna didn’t need a Prince Charming and didn’t get married like other princesses”, or that “it proves men are evil and manipulative” blah blah blah. I guess everyone forgot how Vanellope doesn’t even have a love interest. She didn’t pursue racing to be a princess, to impress a prince, or for love, she did it because she wanted to accomplish her dreams. She even fends off King Candy, the main antagonist who tries to get her destroyed. I mean, yeah Ralph is the one who truly destroys him, but it’s not common for an animated movie to show a little girl fighting an authority figure on her own. When she finds out she was a princess all along, instead of accepting it, she ditches the frilly dress for her casual clothes because being a princess isn’t who she is, she as herself is who she is and settles for the title of “President”. She’s more empowering than Anna, Elsa, and Rapunzel ever was and WIR was better than Tangled and Frozen.



I don’t think that we should minimize the feminism that comes out of Frozen, but, yes, Vanellope is absolutely a kickass princess/president and should not be left out of the conversation.

I think the thing is, just like people keep saying “But Black Widow doesn’t do anything” even after she’s totally saved the day in three movies, the focus is on Ralph rather than Vanellope.  And there’s the same problem with that as there is with the fact that there hasn’t been a Black Widow movie even though she has, I repeat, totally saved the day in three movies.

It really shouldn’t take deep discussion to figure out that the chick in a story is awesomepants.

you mean a racist and rude woman who mocked people for their appearance, ethnicity, and sexuality, and who kept putting female colleagues down? no thanks. time magazine should be ashamed of themselves for even suggesting that this woman was a feminist icon.

And this from the magazine who refused to include Laverne Cox in their top 100. #ImNoticingAPattern

"Groundbreaking feminist icon" lmaoooooo if she’s groundbreaking then I must be through the fucking roof if you set your standards that low.

I think that Joan Rivers pushed and broke through some barriers that needed to be pushed and broken through for women. But I am not a fan of hers. And, while I’ve heard people say that she was quite kind in real life, I feel like, if you build your career on tearing other people down, you must be at least part asshole. I will never say I’m happy to hear that anyone has died, and I have sympathy for her loved ones. But I do resent society’s need to constantly dismiss the faults of those who have died just because they died. Dying doesn’t turn you into an angel or erase the bad things you’ve said or done. She wasn’t a wonderful person, and while she may have had some wonderful qualities, I’m unwilling to refuse to see the whole picture and pretend she was a fucking saint.
