My favourite thing to do is hate on stupid Dutch things with fellow Dutch people

Example, Sinterklaas and of course Zwarte Piet~ (o m d I witnessed a “zwarte piet is ZWART” person. In real life. For the first time. O M D scary. I hate people so much) but yeah “stuffsdutchpeoplelike” is fiiiiilled with all the ridic things that Dutch people go crazy about. For weird reasons.

That being said I love Dutch directness. It’s also something I appreciate extra because Belgians can’t deal with it at all and British… Well… Britain almost turned me into an awkward penguin, so, let’s not even go there.

I joke of course, I don’t really ~fundamentally hate~ on things, but it’s fun to make fun of the things you grew up with and now realise are really odd.

You must not reduce yourself to a puddle just because the person you like is afraid to swim and you are a fierce sea to them; because there will be someone who was born with love of the waves within their blood, and they will look at you with fear and respect.

vief replied to your post: I started stashing food in my room bec…

Oh noooooooo dear this is ridiculous!!!!!!

I’ve already contacted the agency about the abuse (I guess abuse is a strong word, but they are taking advantage of me). I’m keeping a log of my hours for the next week to show…

Well I already said it but seriously, they’re not gonna change in my opinion, so I hope you can confront them soon and get help from the agency and shit, to get away from them.

I am just so so sad for you because I know you wanted to be here so badly and even though I hate this stupid country I don’t want people who like it to have shit experiences!! Buhh I feel so sorry for you, pfff wtf is wrong with some people. Cheap assholes.
(Also serious about help if you need it to get away for awhile or smth, I know it would be ok, not ideal for you of course but just want you to be safe and not in the shit :/ and feel like you’re trapped)

Don’t ever compliment me by insulting other women. That’s not a compliment, it’s a competition none of us agreed to. "You’re not like other girls." Shut the fuck up. (via cutely-perverted)

xkcd: Wikipedia article titles with the right syllable stress pattern to be sung to the tune of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song. (Here’s the song, for reference.)
All of these titles are examples of trochaic tetrameter, which is one of the most common English meters (a trochee is a foot consisting of STRONG-weak and tetrameter is four feet per line). Another example is Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, although that has a deficient last foot, but you can sing any of these titles to that tune as well if you just double the last note.
Trochaic tetrameter creates a strong feeling of sing-song “poem-ness” in English. Most Shakespearean characters, for example, speak in iambic pentameter (weak-STRONG, five feet per line), which sounds more natural, but a few speak in trochaic tetrameter for dramatic effect. For example, MacBeth and Lady MacBeth speak in iambic pentameter, which gives the effect of talking normally: 

Methought I heard a voice cry “Sleep no more!Macbeth does murder sleep,” the innocent sleep,Sleep that knits up the ravell’d sleave of care,
Out, damned spot! out, I say!—One: two: why,then, ‘tis time to do’t.—Hell is murky!—Fie, mylord, fie! a soldier, and afeard? What need wefear who knows it, when none can call our powerto account?—Yet who would have thought the oldman to have had so much blood in him?

But the witches speak in trochaic tetrameter, which makes them seem like they’re delivering an incantation: 

Double, double toil and trouble;Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.
Fair is foul, and foul is fair

Previous xkcd on poetry: metrical foot fetish, ballad meter, trochaic fixation. Language Log also has a long, interesting post on meter.

Your first time is NOT supposed to hurt

You are NOT supposed to bleed

If you bleed, that is NOT your hymen being ‘popped’, it is a tear due to lack of sexual arousal and natural lubrication.

This is all a MYTH perpetrated by men so they don’t have to make sure you are comfortable and sufficiently aroused enough before you have sex with them. It is an excuse to disregard and hurt you.

I just really want women to know this.

wait…. really?

yes really


If you’re in pain and you wanna stop please just stop and don’t make it worse and don’t listen to people who pressure you to keep going because if it hurts it’s your body telling you that this isn’t working and maybe a different approach is better

Urgent - Please Spotlight:
I regret to tell you that Christina Fonthes - a dear friend and organiser of Rainbow Noir has been held against her will in The Congo - she was on a family holiday with her mother who has decided to have Christina ‘cured’ of her sexuality. 
Christina has managed to escape from her aunt’s house and is currently hiding out with a friend. She has access to internet and has been communicating with us via email. The next available flight is 2nd September - 5 days away! Chris needs help and protection from the British Embassy in Congo but her mother has reported her missing and therefore we need to get in contact with both the UK Home Office and UK embassy in Congo to let them know that she is in danger and that her mother is lying/the one endangering her life!!PLEASE SHARE THIS ON ALL YOUR NETWORKS. CALL, EMAIL, TWEET the British embassy on behalf of Christina - the more we call, the more attention it will bring to her case and hopefully they will act quicker in getting Christina to a safe place. HER MOTHER HAS HER PASSPORT AND TRAVELING DOCUMENTS!CHRISTINA’S LIFE IS IN DANGER. PLEASE DO AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. 
If you can help please contact @RainbowNoirMCR or @WritersofColour on twitter.

Please re-tumblr this. This is an actual friend of ours and we need your help to get her home safe.
