- Marshall B. Rosenberg (via psych-quotes)
Alright, here’s something funny. These boys in my hall went outside in their undies to take some photos in the snow. Funny, right? They’re trying to get attention and it’s hilarious. Us ladies choose to do the same, we are wearing more clothing, and are doing the exact same poses. We are wearing as much clothing as is acceptable at the pool or the beach, at the gym, etc.
There is a serious double standard here— us girls have gotten responses like:
"What’s the point of being half naked?"
"*ahem* sluts *ahem*"
"What’s wrong with you females?"
Or worse, what my mother said. Her initial shock was apparently because she thought I was in my underwear, but when I told her I was in a swimsuit, she was suddenly happy I was having fun in college.
The idea here is that we are doing the same thing. When arguing this point with one of my hallmates, he said “But men’s bodies aren’t built the same, you don’t see girls getting pumped up over a topless guy, but how many guys do you think are gonna get all crazy over a topless girl?” Seriously? Really? Women don’t need to dress in order to avoid a reaction from men. You’re mad because you can’t control yourself? Men can pose in their undies in the snow without an issue because women aren’t going to go wild over it? Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours.
The double standards are killin’ me.
"Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours." Is literally one of the best quotes I’ve ever heard. Thank you.

A X-Ray Of A Violin Being Played.
In 1992, there were 812 arrests for possessing a small amount of marijuana in New York City.
In 2012, there were 39,230.
85% of those arrested were black or Latino even though whites and minorities use marijuana at the same rates.
Here’s a story of a beloved art teacher who was subjected to arrest for having “a marijuana cigarette” they found on the ground on the same block as him. The next day, he was suspended from teaching.
“They took my life. They took what I love to do the most.”
Now, though his case was dropped, he has been banned from ever teaching again at the school he helped to found.
