    Ok, so I figured that perhaps not everyone is aware that this is available to use now, especially the younger folk out there.

    This is OraQuick, and it is an FDA-Approved, in-home HIV test that provides results in about 20 minutes. I’m not sure about the availabilty of this product (or similar ones) in other countries, but in the U.S. you can purchase these at Walgreens for a mere 35 bucks, and you can even have them delivered to your door for complete anonymity.

    Reading the results is easy. One line you are negative, two lines you are positive.

    Why is this important? Well I know for a fact that a lot of guys say they are HIV negative without really getting tested, or they base that on some really old test result. There is no excuse now. You can get this in the mail if you want, and know for sure in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Its good peace of mind. And if you meet someone new and you are planning on playing around, its an easy and cheap thing to do to know where you guys stand. It builds trust right off the bat. Being safe is not just about wearing a condom. Its a combination of many things like trust, knowing the person, closeness, and being a good judge of character. Now on top of that you can keep up with your HIV status on a regular basis. :)

    This is important for people to know, I never knew it existed

    This is how my boyfriend and I tested before we started bareback in together after being with each other for 3 months. It’s super easy.

    I know that it’s scary, believe me, I don’t practice risky behaviors and my anxiety was through the roof. It’s so important though you guys.

    They even give you a non-descript bag to dispose of everything in.

    I’m glad this is going around. :) Spread the word.

8 Ways to Study Better:
1.) You can prevent yourself from forgetting up to 80% of the material by reviewing a lecture or study content within 24 hours.
2.) Instead of re-reading information again and again, close your eyes and recite as much as possible from memory. This can cement long-term memorization.
3.) If available, take practice tests. One study showed that students retained 50% more of the material if they testing themselves after learning something.
4.) Become more efficient when studying with flashcards by using the Leitner System. Repeat flashcards that you have difficulty with more often than those you’ve memorized.
5.) Listening to classical music while studying may activate the parts of your brain that can help you pay attention and make predictions. It can also improve your mood.
6.) Consider exercising before your next study session. It may help make your mind more alert, and give you the endurance you need to study for several hours.
7.) Instead of trying to memorize information, make connections between the material’s ideas. This may help you remember more material in less time.
8.) When you study, focus on only studying. Multitasking can handicap learning as your attention is split between each task.

    being homosexual or bisexual isn’t disgusting. but you know what is disgusting? when a man finds it ok for two girls to be making out or something of the sort just because it makes his dick hard, but when its two girls or, god forbid, two men that are in an actual, well-founded relationship and in love, the man finds that disturbing and immoral and wrong. now thats disgusting.

    i hope all the homophobes read this.

    1480px:

    because people are still asking that question

    because women are payed less than men in approximately 99% of professions

    because chris brown can still have a career after assaulting rihanna but miley cyrus takes her clothes off and there’s a huge scandal

    because of this:

    image

    because currently it is estimated ten million more girls are out of education than boys (x)

    because we’re expected to be mature but hairless like a child, in control but not bossy, sexy but not slutty and definitely not a prude, intelligent but not opinionated, independent but reliant on men, natural but look like the girl in the magazine etc etc

    because being called a girl, a pussy or a bitch is an insult

    because when i told my mum i refused to get anything less than a’s in my exams she told me it wasn’t ladylike to be so cocky

    because my brother and 90% of my male friends think girls who wear revealing clothing are asking for rape

    because every person who identifies as female should be allowed to choose if they want to get married, have kids, have a career, go to uni etc etc without expectations

    because tampons and sanitary pads are stupidly expensive

    because some people reading this will have flinched at the fact i just said ‘tampon’

    because there are men out there whose job it is to make young girls feel like absolute shit about themselves just so they can sell the next best beauty product

    because female masturbation isn’t considered normal whilst men can talk about their own penises for hours on end

    beCAUSE OF ARTICLES LIKE THIS

    because feminists are still seen as crazy lesbians who dont shave and some still feel like they have to defend themselves by claiming theyre not any of those things when in fact if i want to be a passionate lady who likes other ladies and cant be bothered to shave my legs every twenty minutes then thats my choice and if i want to be someone who wears make up and shaves and goes out partying then thats my choice and if i want to be a combination of the two or anything in between then thats. my. choice.

    because i believe anyone who identifies as female is fucking badass and deserves the same rights as every privileged stuck up old white man sitting around and making laws about our bodies

    because how can you not be

  7. The biggest three Young Adult literature franchises in the past decade have been Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and Twilight. All of them were written by women.

    fandomsandfeminism:

    And yet we still get articles like this:

    image

    And it annoys the hell out of me. 

    Because John Green has said and done some great, wonderful things. He’s also done and said some super shitty things. He’s written some decent books, and done some good charity work.

    But he did not save Young Adult Literature. He did not usher in a grand new era of Young Adult Literature. If anything, he is riding on the coattails of women more successful than him in the literary world.

    SIGNAL BOOST THIS NEWS! Seriously, how come this isn’t all over tumblr? Angelina Jolie presided over the largest ever global anti-rape summit. She is using her celebrity for good. She is addressing rape in wartime and in conflict zones, which is where it is perpetuated on the most massive scale and in which context always has been used as a weapon.

    Feminists of tumblr should get behind this woman. Let’s stop the perpetual erasure and trivialization of women in the media through their sexualization and start looking at the work that they do. Her acts here are easily in danger of being eclipsed by her image in the tabloids which is more concerned with her relationship to Brad Pitt and the fact that she is a sex symbol than the important feminist work that she is performing RIGHT NOW. 

    I am such a fan of this lady… and she does not deserve to be trivialized for being a woman, a sex symbol, and a celebrity. Here, she is working for social justice for women all over the world. She’s doing what’s right.

    I should have gone to this event

    An asexual and pansexual become room-mates and have wacky adventures

    Plot twist: the asexual is really super outgoing and is a huge flirt while the pansexual is extremely socially awkward and has trouble ordering coffee let alone getting a date.
