Johnny Galecki, regarding rumors about him being gay.
I’m reblogging this again because it’s one of the best things to have ever been said ever.
THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE WHEN YOU TAKE OFF YOUR GLASSES
EVERYTHING JUST GETS KINDA BLURRY
I CAN STILL SEE HOW MANY FINGERS YOURE HOLDING UP ASSHOLE
GOD BLESS THIS POST
RIP Nelson Mandela (1918 - 2013) Aged 95
He was such an inspiration to millions of people, and it’s such sad news to hear that an amazing icon has passed away.
when young women are sexually assaulted, we question their pasts and critique their clothing choices, yet rarely ask their attackers to simply be accountable for having no self-control, and no respect for the humanity of the girls they’ve violated.
when middle school girls post half–naked photos of themselves on instagram, we vilify and ostracize them as cheap and easy, while ignoring the dozens of young men who mindlessly vote their approval each time, who feed the insecurity, and who perpetuate each degrading act with the click of a mouse.
when high school girls get jobs at chain restaurants, which require them to expose their body parts to strangers over trays of nachos, we bemoan their lack of humility and class, yet never question the thousands of men who fill these eateries every day; many with daughters the same age as the ones they ogle.
when women embarrassingly writhe on poles for a few sweaty dollar bills, in dimly lit bars ironically called “gentlemen’s clubs”, we heap insults and judgement on them, yet let the many married men who pay both the dancers and the mortgage each month, come and go without blemish or critique.
sooner or later, we need to stop letting boys be boys, and we need to challenge them to be men.
sooner or later, we need to pull them out of their perpetual adolescence and into adulthood, and ask them to evenly carry the weight of sexual standards.
sooner or later, we need to show our young men that the they can actually raise the moral temperature in sexual situations, not reflect them.
My wife got sick. She was constantly nervous because of problems at work, personal life, her failures and children. She lost 30 pounds and weighted about 90 pounds. She got very skinny and was constantly crying. She was not a happy woman. She had suffered from continuing headaches, heart pain and jammed nerves in her back and ribs. She did not sleep well, falling asleep only in the mornings and got tired very quickly during the day. Our relationship was on the verge of a break up. Her beauty was leaving her somewhere, she had bags under her eyes, she was poking her head, and stopped taking care of herself. She refused to shoot the films and rejected any role. I lost hope and thought that we’ll get divorced soon… But then I decided to act. After all I’ve got the most beautiful woman on earth. She is the idol of more than half of men and women on earth, and I was the one allowed to fall asleep next to her and to hug her. I began to shower her with flowers, kisses and compliments. I surprised and pleased her every minute. I gave her a lot of gifts and lived just for her. I spoke in public only about her. I incorporated all themes in her direction. I praised her in front of her own and our mutual friends. You won’t believe it, but she blossomed. She became better. She gained weight, was no longer nervous and loved me even more than ever. I had no clue that she CAN love that much.
And then I realized one thing: the woman is the reflection of her man.
If you love her to the point of madness, she will become it.
