Patriarchy teaches women that women could only be powerful when side with men and that when women side with other women they are just weak. This notion causes women to believe that other women are unsuitable as close company and some women do not help out other women who are in need. And this is so true, I’m tired of hearing women calling other women sluts and whores. I’m tired of other women siding with men instead of helping their sisters out.

We have shows like 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation struggling to stay on every season, and shows like Two and a Half Men and Big Bang Theory having no trouble at all. Shows like the latter two, which capitalize on trivializing women and their roles or attempting to put them in “their place,” become the most popular and successful shows on TV. So this poses a grander question: Why does our society enjoy sexism so much? Or, more importantly, why is our supposedly progressing world so opposed to breaking this sexist quo? You might say that it doesn’t matter – it’s just a TV show. But it’s not “just” anything. Everything matters, especially television. Everyone enjoys television, and until that arena of entertainment can employ more ladies and create shows that demonstrate the depths of different types of characters – women, people of color, and the LGBTQ community – our society that is so incredibly susceptible to what’s on that silver screen is going to continue to inherently absorb sexism.

So when shows like 30 Rock go off the air, that precious air time is replaced by shows that still present women as sex objects, dumb blondes, nagging wives, emotional coworkers, or ugly neighbors. We, unfortunately, still live in a world where a show run by women is a landmark, but we have to hold tight to those landmarks and make sure they keep breaking down those discriminatory norms.

I fucking hate rabbit breeders

My rabbit was rescued from a breeding  situation, when the dumb breeder, like many, hoarded tons of rabbits, and barely fed them or cleaned them! And now my rabbit has a disease that is not really curable because of this. It’s a common disease that happens to many rabbits in hoarding/breeding situations. If you can’t take of that many rabbits then don’t fucking do it. I hate breeders, I’ve had the worst fucking experiences with them, they’ve even stalked me and threatened me for not a good reason at all. There is no such thing as a good breeder either, you don’t have to contribute to the domestic rabbit population right now, they’re on all in shelters because your dumbass can’t take care of all them! I swear I’ve been to a breeder website and they offer advice to abandon and kill off their rabbits.

DO NOT BUY ANY ANIMAL FROM ANY BREEDER OR STORE! ALWAYS ADOPT.

Humans have done enough to animals, we need to fix the problems that are already here not start over (breed again) and try to fuck up another species.

I am a 21 year-old student from Finland.
It makes me sad to hear how Americans are suffering.
Here, our taxes are high but we all benefit from them.
I grew up in the countryside and always had access to the same services that people in the city did.
My university is known around the world in my field and my education is not only free, but my government pays ME to go to university. Everyone has a right to this.
Everyone has a right to the best healthcare, there is no such thing as health insurance.
I am young now and able to take risks and pursue my passion because I will never have to worry about starving if I loose my job or my business fails.
I know that when I am old my state pension will be there for me so that I can enjoy my retirement.
We call this the Nordic Model, and under it we live well and our businesses are among the most competitive in the world. I am grateful to have been born a citizen of a country that cares for its people, and I hope that one day the USA will take example from us.
I am the 99%.
