Alright, here’s something funny. These boys in my hall went outside in their undies to take some photos in the snow. Funny, right? They’re trying to get attention and it’s hilarious. Us ladies choose to do the same, we are wearing more clothing, and are doing the exact same poses. We are wearing as much clothing as is acceptable at the pool or the beach, at the gym, etc.
There is a serious double standard here— us girls have gotten responses like:
"What’s the point of being half naked?"
"*ahem* sluts *ahem*"
"What’s wrong with you females?"
Or worse, what my mother said. Her initial shock was apparently because she thought I was in my underwear, but when I told her I was in a swimsuit, she was suddenly happy I was having fun in college.
The idea here is that we are doing the same thing. When arguing this point with one of my hallmates, he said “But men’s bodies aren’t built the same, you don’t see girls getting pumped up over a topless guy, but how many guys do you think are gonna get all crazy over a topless girl?” Seriously? Really? Women don’t need to dress in order to avoid a reaction from men. You’re mad because you can’t control yourself? Men can pose in their undies in the snow without an issue because women aren’t going to go wild over it? Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours.
The double standards are killin’ me.
"Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours." Is literally one of the best quotes I’ve ever heard. Thank you.
The best kind of alcohol is a lot.
sorry mom I’m just taking your advice about not giving in to peer pressure so you’ll have to find someone else to do the dishes

The casting of Christ Hemsworth and Chris Pine as father and son is so good that it actually makes me uncomfortable. :l
Christ Hemsworth was the best accidental typo I’ve seen
If you haven’t stayed up until the early hours of the morning reading with your eyes itching and burning with tiredness and your vision blurred as you fight to stay awake to finish the book, you haven’t lived at all
I WANT ADVENTURE IN THE GREAT WIDE SOMEWHERE.
"Looking at Tony and Bruce’s outfits at the end of the movie, I’m just gonna put this out there: Bruce is wearing Tony’s clothes. They’re about the same size and build, Bruce’ outfit is way snazzier than his usual style, and we already know that Tony practically asked Bruce to move in with him the day they met. Tony loaned him an outfit from his no-doubt gargantuan Stark closet because they’re Science Bros now, plus Bruce’s only other clothes were reduced to a pair of torn short-shorts when he Hulked out. Also, Tony knows that this is Bruce’s first (positive) interaction with the press, and if there’s anything Tony Stark’s good at, it’s putting on a show."
