I WAS SO HOPING THAT WAS THE REACTION GIF AND IT WAS, PERFECT
I am beginning to understand the reasoning behind the game ‘Shatner.’
I will always reblog Shatner overacting.

2. Double masturbation….

Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.
(Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us).

Girls and guys!! Don’t let anyone try to shame you into presenting yourself in a way that doesn’t make you feel 100% confident and good about yourself. Rock your body and your aesthetic and let others rock theirs.
Just a fraction of the cool stuff I learned when researching women’s history.
Tumblr does not talk fucking enough about Jeannette Rankin. She is not only one of my favorite feminist figures, she is hands down my favorite American political figure EVER (sorry, Kucinich). Not only was she the first woman elected to congress, she is also the only member of congress to vote against entering both world wars, and continued to be a staunch feminist despite being kicked out of the feminist movement of the time for her supposed lack of support “for our boys in blue”. She also said my favorite quote of all time:
"You can no more win a war than you can win an earthquake."
Basically, Jeannette Rankin was AWESOME.

Mirror, mirror on the wall - who has the fairest ORGANS of them all? Smart surface reveals ‘your’ insides
Mirrors have existed for thousands of years but the looking glass has just been given a 21st century makeover.
A new digital mirror gives people X-ray vision to let them see their insides – complete with bones, organs and muscle on show.
The 3D art installation, called the ‘Primary Intimacy of Being,’ recreates what a body looks like inside and eerily tracks a person’s movements as if they are seeing themselves.
Those in the United States with a mental illness diagnosis are much more likely to smoke cigarettes and smoke more heavily, and are less likely to quit smoking than those without mental illness, regardless of their specific diagnosis, a new study by researchers from the Yale School of Medicine shows.
They also found variations in smoking rates and likelihood of quitting among different diagnoses of mental illness. The results are reported in the April issue of the journal Tobacco Control.
Thirty-nine percent of adults with a psychiatric diagnosis smoked compared to 16% without a diagnosis, according to data from the National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions analyzed by researchers. Two out of every three people with drug use disorder smoke, compared to one out of three with social phobia.
“We know that smokers with mental illness are more susceptible to smoking-related disease, and those with mental illness die 25 years earlier than adults without mental illness,” said Sherry McKee, associate professor of psychiatry, and senior author on the study. “Effective smoking cessation treatments are available and we know that smokers with mental illness can quit smoking. We need to address why smokers with mental illness are not being treated for their smoking.”
Over the three-year study period, 22% of smokers with no psychiatric disorders were able to quit smoking, whereas rates of quitting among those with psychiatric disorders were 25% lower. Rates of quitting were lowest among those with dysthymia (10%), agoraphobia (13%), and social phobia (13%). “We also found that individuals with multiple diagnoses had the lowest quit rates,” added Philip Smith, lead author on the study.
This study adds to evidence that smokers with mental illness consume nearly half of all cigarettes in the United States, despite making up a substantially smaller proportion of the population.
Researchers and policymakers are increasingly calling attention to this important public health issue, and this study helps point to a need for interventions and policy that directly help individuals with mental illness quit smoking.
Nicotine makes people feel better! Make people feel better and maybe they will quit
