A very good way of going about explaining this issue. It’s good to see something positive come from Tumblr.

HOLY SHIT. THIS. THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO TELL PEOPLE. SHUT YOUR MOUTH ABOUT MEN VS WOMEN. @_@

this is literally so important

This is why men need feminism.




Well, that and that it’s basic fucking human decency to want all the humans to be treated like humans and so for a man to say he doesn’t need feminism if he doesn’t grock how it directly benefits him is basically him outing himself as a wildly ignorant sociopath but hey.

14 Struggles Only Homebodies Understand

janineishavingfun:

1. The awkwardness that is cancelling your way out of any and all plans you make/are forced into. Crafting that many excuses isn’t easy and is an artform that deserves proper recognition.

2. Justifying this: “What are you doing?” “Nothing… I’m just sitting at home… but like, because I want to.”

3. You’re not anti-social, you are just selectively-social. You don’t waste your time with people who don’t matter, you don’t keep up fake friendships. Sometimes this looks as though you’re distant, but you actually have a psychological leg up on the people who are still trying to work out relationships that just aren’t meant for them.

18 Struggles Of Having An Outgoing Personality But Actually Being Shy And Introverted

itstoocoldforyouhere:

I have never had one of these types of articles speak to me the way this one does. Hahaha.

Not all of these are accurate… but… a lot of them are.

I mean we could totally just stop at number one and call it a night. LOL

"1. You’re not anti-social, you’re selectively social."

THIS. This so hard. So much that. Such social. Wow selective. Much friends.

But even moving onto:

"2. At any given point, you have one (maybe two) best friends who are your entire life. You’re not a “group of friends” person. You can’t keep up with all that."

ALSO that. I can count on one hand, with a few fingers missing, how many people I willingly hang out with on a regular basis. LOL

"5. … You then retreat into three days of complete solitude to recover."

Yes. And to edit. Recover and edit. Haha.

"6. You go out of your way to avoid people, but when you inevitably have to interact with them, you make it seem like there’s nothing in the world you’d rather be doing."

"8. You’re accused of being flirty with everybody, which is hilarious, because in reality, you can only tolerate like four people."

I’m just being nice, yo. Seriously. Half the time I don’t even really care. Ha.

"10. Not to mention the fact that you either have days in which you’re tweeting and status updating every five minutes… or you delete your accounts for a month."

Not **MONTHS**. More like days. But I do take breaks.

"12. You’ve never really understood the whole “introvert vs. extrovert” dichotomy (can we call it that?) Because you’re… both…"

"13. You’re always thrown into the ringer because people think you’re best suited to be the one who gives the presentation, confronts the boss, gives the speech, etc. Meanwhile, you’re practically throwing up over the thought of it."

^^^^So much that.

"15. The entirety of your being is a conundrum, so needless to say, indecisiveness is your Achilles’ Heel."

"16. You’re at your happiest in places like coffee shops and cafés: surrounded by people, but still closed off and keeping to yourself."

I’m usually with at least one other person, but there’s not a whole lot of conversation happening the whole time. It’s mostly headphones and working, haha.

SELECTIVELY SOCIAL.

I will no longer state that I am, “The most social, anti-social person you’ll ever meet”. IT WILL FROM HERE ON OUT BE REFERRED TO AS… Selectively Social.

XD

Why I’m single and not complaining

I feel like at the moment I’m just not ready and don’t deserve one yet. I just want my future boyfriend to have the best girlfriend. Someone who won’t be insecure about how she looks or how she compares to his qualities and other girls. Someone who is independent, mature, and able to make her own money rather than having her boyfriend spend on her all the time. I just want what’s best for my future boyfriend, because he deserves a really great girlfriend. Someone better, someone good for him.
