    Watch what happens when this 18-year-old kid starts talking about the worst "teacher" he ever had. Chances are you had LITERALLY THE SAME "TEACHER" too. Just FYI, he uses some NSFW words. For a good reason. And yes, it's a metaphorical classroom, not a real one. #mediawelike

    WATCH: The TED Talk That Inspired Two Standing Ovations

    Poem by Kate Makkai. A question nearly every woman, every little girl has - will I be pretty? I'm not opposed to pretty. I love makeup. I love clothing, and HUGELY GAUDY vintage earrings. But there is much more to me than my appearance, and I don't need to look "flawless". I'm flawed. It's cool. I don't need products to "fix" my complexion. It's fine. I don't need my lips plumped, or my lines erased. My appearance is in no way indicative of my worth. ~Ricrac ♥

    This Woman's Beef With Prettiness Will Leave You Speechless

    Neil Hilborn & Renee Schminkey - "One Color" (NPS 2013) TRIGGER WARNING: This is a poem about rape. If this is a sensitive concept for you, then please do not watch it. "One Color" is the most accurate and moving depiction of rape that I have ever seen. It's about three minutes long and I strongly encourage you to watch it.
