Sexist words are violent and they're everybody's problem. If you can't say it to him, you can't say it to her. Gendered insults are NOT OKAY.

Why French Kids Don't Have ADHD French children don't need medications to control their behavior. An interesting article for parents who have children diagnosed with ADHD.
I am interested in Dr Marilyn Wedge's book "A disease called childhood" based on this Psychology Today article, Why French Kids Don't Have ADHD. [At least, in much lower rates than the US and with more progressive treatments than big pharma has thus far provided].

The Birth Order Effect #Infographic #Birth #Personality Interesting, I definitely fit the middle child mold here
I can see this in my kids already. The Birth Order Effect #Infographic #Birth #Personality
The Birth Order Effect -- Many of us have heard the adages and sayings about birth order, and how it impacts the characters of the children in the family. But research is starting to show that the long-held beliefs may be startlingly true. This infographic explores how birth order may influence children’s personality, life choices, and careers.
The Birth Order Effect. Scarily mostly true, but I was an only child for 9 yrs, then my brother came along. I also chose the Military & Medical field as a Nurse. I wish I had known of this before I had children, as I would have done things a little different. I tried to treat all 3 the same, but I wasn't perfect. They don't come with instructions as each child is different <3
How the dominant western discourse defines the rest of the non-western world as the embodied "other" and ourselves as bodiless and our values as universal. Think twice about the assumptions we base judgement of others on.

Funny how perspective works huh?
Ethnocentrism is destructive on all sides… Change your perspective, look through their eyes.
Omg the great diffrent point of views. Its amazing how diff they are but how commonly they think of each other ..which coming from a proud muslim its so true!!
Perspective. #feminism #equality #religion #sexism #slutshaming #hijab #burqa #bodypolicing
In one country, it might be seen as "normal" for women to prance around with a lot of skin showing; whereas in other countries, it is seen as self-disrespect to show your skin to the population. In the pin, they feel as though the different culture is male-dominated by how some of the women dress. -Grace
SO true! what a great perspective!

A week’s worth of groceries around the world… This is astounding. It's not until you get to the bottom, with some of the least industrialized countries do you start to see families consuming real food, recognizable as a meat, veg, fruit, dairy.
A week’s worth of groceries around the world… This really makes me think about my food choices.

People still believe the negative stereotypes about feminists that men against women's right to vote spread 200 years ago.

Political postcard from the 1910s. The women's suffrage will turn the men into the house cleaners.
Between the 1890s and early 1900s, thousands of illustrations like this were produced and distributed around the United States and England, on postcards, in magazines and on public billboards. The message was that women’s rights were dangerous and letting women think for themselves could only end in a nightmarish society.

Porn stars before and after in the makeup chair. A really good example of the high expectations that are placed on women and what does/does not constitute "natural beauty. I often view pictures like this as a reminder that most if not all actresses and models are very done-up and airbrushed, which is something I personally need to do, since I often feel less attractive because I have normal, "imperfect" skin.

Porn stars before and after in the makeup chair. A really good example of the high expectations that are placed on women and what does/does not constitute "natural beauty. I often view pictures like this as a reminder that most if not all actresses and models are very done-up and airbrushed, there is no need to judge yourself so harshly. Just be happy being yourself. Also teach men what unmade up women look like so they can have realistic expectations of their partners.

This unfair meme is not new to the internet. In fact, I've seen it pass through my news feeds in one from or another for several years. Until now I've bitten my tongue and wondered why this was even an issue for some. Take a little time and read these comments because they are from people who have real life stories of why nice things are not exclusive to the wealthy.
