“I don’t think women are better than men. Men are a lot worse than women, though. Like, there’s not even a comparison. Some people try to say, ‘No, women cause—’ no, NOTHING. It doesn’t even touch the mayhem of male nonsense and violence. The worst thing you can say about a woman is that she’s annoying to a guy. That’s the worst thing. Like, a woman you can say, ‘My mom makes me feel stupid.’ ‘Oh, really? My husband murdered me.’ ‘Kim Kardashian’s annoying.’ ‘Really? Hitler killed everybody.’”—Louis C.K. on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (via annaetc)
“People ask me, “Are you going to have another baby?” and I get a little angry. I know my shtick is being an open book, but when you ask a woman in her forties that question, it’s not always her choice. I’m healthy and could try again. But I don’t want to be a “trying” person. If it’s meant to be, it will happen.”—
Bethenny Frankel for Glamour, July 2012 issue
when are random people going to realize that they need to STFU and not ask questions like that of people they don’t know well? jesus, that pisses me off.
“I did not see myself as racist because I was taught to recognize racism only in individual acts of meanness by members of my group, never in invisible systems conferring unsought racial dominace on my group from birth. Likewise, we are taught to think that sexism or heterosexism is carried on only through individual acts of discrimination, meanness, or cruelty toward women, gays, and lesbians, rather than in invisible systems conferring unsought dominance on certain groups.”—White Male Privilege - Peggy, McIntosh (via loki-ed)
“Oddly when many of us cry, we feel we need to take care of those who are with us when we come to tears. We feel that we have to make sure they don’t feel too bad or overly concerned. So we buck up, we assure and reassure them “we’re fine” or “we’ll be fine.” We don’t let ourselves melt for fear we’ll bring them down with us. But sometimes we actually need to melt and we need to trust that others cannot only handle our tears, but can benefit from them.”—The Importance of Crying in Public | Rachel W. Cole (via hollow-gram)
