Mitt Romney spent over 800 Million not to become president. I spent no money for the same result. Who’s the better businessman?

When people say ‘This is my baby,’ they don’t always mean a baby. Sometimes they mean a dog.

aziz ansari’s voice in the back of my head faintly telling me to treat myself is going to be my downfall

Ever since my mom gave me her cast iron skillet, I’ve just eyed it suspiciously when grabbing one of my more familiar non-stick options. Friends who are smarter than I would routinely tell me it was the most important thing I could have in my kitchen - but I remained stupidly intimidated.
Well, I came to my senses tonight and finally busted out this bad boy to make this Cajun Shrimp & Quinoa Casserole* situation. It wasn’t scary at all and I have a feeling that Mr. Casty and I are going to be great friends. Now please excuse me while I go lick my plate clean.
*you can take the girl out of the midwest but you can’t take away her love of casseroles….or something…

Feminism is not about who opens the jar.

It is not about who pays for the date. It is not about who moves the couch. It is not about who kills the bugs. It is not about who cooks the dinner. It’s not even about who stays home with the kids, as long as the decision was made together, after thinking carefully about your situation and coming to an agreement that makes sense for your particular marriage and family.

It is about making sure that nobody ever has to do anything by “default” because of their gender. The stronger person should move the couch. The person who enjoys cooking more, has more time for it, and/or is better at it should do the cooking. Sometimes the stronger person is male, sometimes not. Sometimes the person who is best suited for cooking is female, sometimes not. You should do what works.

But it is also about letting people know that it is okay to change. If you’re a woman who wants to become stronger, that’s great. If you’re a man who wants to learn how to cook, that’s also great. You might start out with a relationship where the guy opens all the jars and the girl cooks all the meals, but you might find that you want to try something else. So try it.

why is catcalling called catcalling? i like cats and i would quite like them calling me to see how i am or to make plans to meet for brunch, catcalling should be called something more accurate like asshole screeching or insecure masculinity
