Anonymous said: I'm not sure I understand the logic in that one anon's post about depression and taking a 'chance.' I have a chance winning the powerball too, but the last time I checked, telling someone to go out and buy lottery tickets wasn't considered good advice. I wish I could show people how many this times this type of thinking has backfired on me, and hard.

What to go out and chance that you’ll be happy?

It was written by someone with an acronym.

As I was waiting for my ride today coming home from the academic center at my university, I was looking at a cube-shaped cork board full of advertisements and notices. I walked around the back (the side no one can see) and I noticed this sign, drawing attention to eating disorder statistics among males. Having many male friends with eating disorders, I subconsciously decided that this was more important than any awards show going on in April.

I removed the thumb-tack from the top of the poster and I held the sheet out to read it for just a moment. At that second, a woman with a slight Jamaican accent walked into the building and addressed me. Our conversation went a bit like this:

"Are you taking our signs down?"
"No, no, ma’am, I’m putting this one back up. I moved it."
"What’s that one about, then?"
"Oh, it’s statistics about males with eating disorders. It was in the back."
"Boys with eating disorders? You mean boys don’t eat?"

At this point I was sort of appalled that she was so oblivious to the fact that boys suffer, too.

"Yeah," I said. "Some boys eat too much, others don’t eat nearly enough."
"Oh, really?"
"Yes. I felt that this poster shouldn’t be hidden in the back of the others. This is something that needs drawn attention to. People don’t normally associate eating disorders or self-injury with males, but it’s there and it’s happening, and more people need to see this. I want others to be aware."

She looked at me for a moment, smiled, and simply said, “Thank you.” I glanced up just in time to see the security guard standing near me smiling at me, too. He placed his hands behind his back, smiled, and just nodded.

Boys suffer, too. Eating disorders are a real epidemic, and they affect, both, girls and boys. Stay strong guys, because there are people looking out for you, too. ♡

This needs more notes.

Anonymous said: Depression is a bitch because it makes it that much harder to do all of the things you need to do to get better. Sometimes, it's the hardest thing in the world to just get out of bed, but unless you actually give yourself a chance (and it is only a chance) to be happy by going out and living, it isn't going to get better. It's a hard lesson (and one that is incredibly difficult to force yourself to learn), but it's a necessary one for anyone who has any form of recurrent depression.

Yep

Anonymous said: Gosh, I love how that article says that fairy tale ideals may make women stay in abusive relationships, but doesn't examine how it might make men stay in them. Because, you know, a fairy tale ideal where a man has to face any danger, brave any peril, and sacrifice everything up to and including his own life for a woman sure seems like it may encourage men to stay in abusive relationships. Ah well. It's not like men are half of all domestic abuse victims or something.

It’s not like this woman ignored half a demographic when making this campaign.

It’s not “rape culture” if rape doesn’t take place

womenagainstfeminism:

A guy staring at your boobs is not rape culture.

A catcall may be offensive, but it is not rape.

It’s not rape culture if you are offended, but never actually raped.

Feminists hate male heterosexuality so much that they want to equate it with rape for even existing.
