Taxes are not *your* money. If people could give up the idea that it's THEIR money being pried out of their hands, rather than just another bill, there'd be a lot less whining. You want lights, you pay the electric company. You want a place to live, you pay the bank or landlord. You want food, you pay the grocery store. You want to live in a civilized society, you pay taxes. Get. Over. It. | True bomb. Taxes: the bill you pay to live in civilized society

A Real Woman, Inspiration, Quotes, Body Image, Real Women, Realwomen, Beautiful, Realwoman, Body Positive
Introducing "real women," our favorite way to body hate. This quote challenges the belief that many others pins instill as inspiration. The term "real women" is often used to define what is right and who is beautiful. Similarly, it often defines a type of "real men" that want those women. Truth be told, body size does not make an individual more or less real. It doesn't make anyone less of a human being. And it certainly doesn't define who is worthy of being loved.
Omg I love this. People need to stop with the " a real woman "...is this or that . A real woman is a real woman. Stop the woman hating. It won't make you love yourself anymore. Honestly I am naturally skinny and naturally toned, I am strong even though I may be little. I try very hard not to put other woman down about their bodies and would appreciate the same.it is frustrating when other women constantly compare themselves and put others down. One persons opinion of beautiful may be different.
"Real women" - #preach #realwomen

Louis C. K. quote - Gay marriage summed up…
Louis C. K. | True story.
In light of North Carolina's stupid ban, and President Obama's (finally) confession about being ok about gay marriage, this quote from Louis CK is spot on. If you don't like gay marriage, then don't marry someone of the same sex!
Louis C.K. on gay marriage. I love this man.
Louis CK on gay marriage. It's funny, but very true. #equality
Louis CK! Yes! Gay marriage is NO different than a straight marriage and those of you who think that they shouldn't have the right to get married can just fuck off...
Stephen Fry : the brilliant @louisck quote/viewpoint on gay marriage is the best I've seen:

The final, brilliant word on passive voice. “She was killed [by zombies.]” <—- passive “Zombies killed [by zombies] her.” <—- active
Bi Zombies, Internet Site, Activities Voice, Website, Teaching, Passive Voice, Web Site, English Teacher, Writing Advice
Passive voice was killed by zombies. Zombies use active voice and killed passive voice. Add "by zombies" after the verb...if it makes sense, it is passive (they are undead, after all); if it does not make sense, it is active. She was killed (by zombies; makes sense = passive). The girl ate (by zombies; no sense = active).
The Best Writing Advice You Will Receive All Year (Even though I'm not an English teacher, this may come in handy!) - I always hated explaining passive voice. This. Is. Awesome.
"I finally learned how to teach my guys to ID the passive voice. If you can insert 'by zombies' after the verb, you have passive voice." -- Rebecca Johnson

In 1978, Nikki Giovanni, a decade-plus into her celebrated career as a poet and major figure in the black renaissance in American poetry, issued Cotton Candy On A Rainy Day. Critics called it depressing, but any girl who has read it knows it’s just the realest real talk. When I was 13, I found this book on my mom’s shelf. It was the first poem I’d ever read that I connected to and it made me realize poetry was and could be something beyond kiddie rhymes and white dudes who’d been dead 300 years

some wise words from Archbishop Desmond Tutu - Imgur
"I can't for the life of me immgine that God will say, 'I will punish you because you are black, you should have been white; I will punish you because you are a woman, you should have been a man; I will punish you because you are homosexual, you ought to have been heterosexual.' I can't for the life of me believe this is how God see things." Archbishop Desmond Tutu (I haven't found a better quote that sums up my views on God and religion than this one by the Archbishop)
This man has been an inspiration to me for years. I've gotten to see him speak twice. This quote is awesome.
Maybe I would have faith if the rest of the world felt this way.

Excellent Quote On Civil Disobedience From Howard Zinn
Howard Zinn, Political Activist, Teacher, Historian. This guy is amazing and has a whole different view of how American history should be taught. I've been trying to get his curriculum into the Stoneham public schools. If you're interested, go to see http://www.zinneducationproject.com.
"You are saying our problem is civil disobedience, but that is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. ... Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world, in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity and war and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves and all the while the grand thieves are running the country. That's our problem." --Howard Zinn

Yes, you can believe in free speech and disagree with other but the people who you disagree with or a whole new audience in general may come back with criticism, ridicule, or there may be societal repercussions.
