11 simple rules for being a male feminist

Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Aziz Ansari. John Legend.
These are a few of many male celebrities who have recently come out as feminists. Emma Watson’s high-profile #HeForShe campaign and the White House’s launch of #ItsOnUs against sexual violence have encouraged many more men to think critically about feminism. More importantly, about why it’s necessary to affirm and practice gender equality, given the many ways institutional sexism and the patriarchy have created environments where conventionally white, masculine, cisgender men have power and privilege. 
For men who wish to truly engage in the struggle for gender equality, here are some ways they can help help while remaining cognizant of how their identities may limit their understanding of women’s struggles.

25 things i wish i realized while i was still in highschool

  1. That zit on your cheek literally does not matter
  2. Skipping class one time will not ruin your entire life
  3. The boy you’re trying so hard to impress will mean nothing to you in a year
  4. Bring coffee to school and ignore people who make fun of it
  5. Bring a snack, too. Don’t care if people hear you eating in class.
  6. Being popular isn’t and will never be something that seriously defines who you are
  7. Appreciate your teachers
  8. Doing/not doing drugs doesn’t make you cooler than anyone else.
  9. Neither does drinking
  10. Talk to the kid sitting alone; even though it may not change your life it could drastically change theirs
  11. Participate in school events
  12. Wear sweatpants everyday
  13. Or wear a dress everyday
  14. Wear whatever makes you comfortable
  15. Nobody will laugh at you if you sit alone at your lunch table for five minutes
  16. Utilize the library
  17. Don’t wait 20 minutes to text someone back just to seem cool
  18. Tell your friends how much you love them
  19. Cherish your free textbooks… seriously
  20. Help confused freshmen, be nice to them. Remember how much you would have appreciated it a couple years ago
  21. Compliment the other girls in the bathroom
  22. That fight you had with your mom really isn’t that big of a deal
  23. It’s okay to cry
  24. Don’t let your desire for a romantic relationship stop you from forming platonic relationships
  25. Remember that life does go on

Why is the blame for romanticizing mental illness lodged at teenage girls documenting/trying to cope with their struggles with mental illness and not grown men who make movies about how medication is evil and schizophrenia is magic powers.

I’m just gonna reblog this every time I see it.

Harvard University 5K for NK: Help Save a Life
Meet Kim Hyun Shik*. He is one of countless North Korean citizens who suffers from multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB), a lethal disease that has been banished from most developed countries but still threatens impoverished nations such as North Korea.
MDR-TB patients like Hyun Shik have to remain isolated from their families and communities because of the high risk of infection and the difficulty of treatment. 
MDR-TB causes coughing, chest pain, and coughing up blood. MDR-TB also causes weight loss, fever, and night sweats. If left untreated, MDR-TB will take Hyun Shik’s life.
Harvard Korean Association, Harvard Korean International Students’ Association, and Harvard Human Rights in North Korea are spearheading a campaign to raise $5,000 by April 2015 for Hyun Shik’s treatment, so that he can be cured and reunited with his family and community.
