Dad: Why do you think they do that?
Girl: Because the companies who make these try to trick the girls into buying the pink stuff instead of stuff boys want to buy. [x]
that awkward moment when a child understands the harm of forcing gender roles better than most grown male politicians.
I’m surprised that I haven’t reblogged this, to be honest.
I love that last gif. She looks so frustrated. Like “Um, hello, obviously girls and boys can like anything why doesn’t anybody get that???”
She does have a point though..
Kids who are smarter than adults though.
Ok I am not a misandrist or anything, but I would never vote for a male running for president. Everyone knows their jobs are fixing cars and sinks, it just wouldn’t be plausible to think they could make the decisions for the country. And if they’re spending all their time trying to be politicians then who is gonna mow the lawns and move heavy things? I’m not belittling them, those jobs are important too but things work because everyone has their place!
i wish tumblr had more of a “educate the ignorant” attitude as opposed to “send death threats to the ignorant”
i love how this post was made by a cis white boy
I like how you completely ignored the message and instead focused on who posted it. :)
I still don’t understand the perspective that’s going on here.
It`s a railing.

Not sure which part of my post this is referring to… I’d already sh’d when I posted, but I’m not planning on dying. The “inviting death” part is kinda that I wouldn’t be fussed if I did die, but I don’t have any plans of suicide.
Anyway, thank you for your message, anon. I hope I didn’t worry you
Some self-harm mention, but on ipod so can’t do a read more.
I was angry, and so sick of being seen as a “little girl”. It was just a few pathetic scratches really, but the sting was the relief I wanted.
The people I was with today (parents and family friends) were getting upset because one of them is basically dying (he refuses to go to the doctor because he doesn’t want to know what it is) - he’s in his 70s, I think, and has been smoking and drinking heavily for years. It hit me that I’m desensitised to death, possibly because I’ve been inviting it for so many years.
Pity the living.
This is my favorite thing
this is so very british
oh my god it gets better when you understand exactly how far he went
