Notice only 20 shades of gray

It’s been proven that women actually have an acute ability to pick up subtle differences in colors

Then I might be a man because I only see like eight colors in all that mess…

thats probably also because like 1/12 men have some sort of color vision deficiency while only 1/255 women do so

I swear part of it is indifference/laziness. They probably see almost every difference we see they just don’t see the point of differentiating with words. “Yeah, it’s lighter but it’s still fuckin’ red.” They don’t give a crap what kind of red they’re lookin’ at. To be honest I don’t disagree.

This is the most uncomfortable post on tumblr

The scariest thing about this post is that I couldn’t work out what was wrong for a good minute until I read them aloud because my brain automatically read them in their correct order 

Nah, the scariest thing is we’ve normalised the concept that there is a "correct order". There’s not one damn reason any of these should be incorrect. Well, actually, Romeo and Juliet is the name of the play, but if you were just referring to the characters… You know what I mean!

“I lost respect when I learned of Gandhi’s body hatred and even more that he refused to have sex with his wife for the last thirty-eight years of their marriage (in fact he felt that people should have sex only three or four times in their lives) I lost even more [respect] when I found out that in order to test his commitment to celibacy, he had beautiful young women lie next to him naked through the night: evidently his wife - whom he described as looking like a ‘meek cow’ - was no longer desirable enough [to] be a solid test”

On Pacifism

-Derrick Jenson

(via fortalameda)

Yeah, Gandhi was an unbelievably selfish individual. My biggest reason for losing respect for him, though, was that he criticized the Jews for defending themselves against the Holocaust — he insisted that they should have committed public mass suicide in order to “shame” the Germans instead of fighting back.

(via freedominwickedness)

…. In order to shame the Germans?  WTF?  The Germans wouldn’t’ve been shamed - they’d’ve been thrilled to get their way so easily!

(via christinathena)

Gandhi’s exact words were: “But the Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher’s knife. They should have thrown themselves into the sea from cliffs. As it is, they succumbed anyway in their millions.” He also wrote an open letter to the British people in 1940 telling them to surrender to the Axis even if it meant accepting genocide:

“I would like you to lay down the arms you have as being useless for saving you or humanity. You will invite Herr Hitler and Signor Mussolini to take what they want of the countries you call your possessions. Let them take possession of your beautiful island, with your many beautiful buildings. You will give all these but neither your souls, nor your minds. If these gentlemen choose to occupy your homes, you will vacate them. If they do not give you free passage out, you will allow yourself, man, woman and child, to be slaughtered, but you will refuse to owe allegiance to them.”

(via freedominwickedness)

he was also anti-black (lost all respect for him after reading how he treated sub-saharan africans).

read this. everyone needs to know gandhi’s “true colors”.

(via dumbthingswhitepplsay)

Ghandi was a pedophile, to boot.

(via bookishboi)

I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS MY ENTIRE LIFE THANK YOU

I CANNOT FUCKING STAND THE WAY HE IS PORTRAYED 

HE WAS AN ABUSER WHO HIT HIS WIFE AND HIS DAUGHTERS ALSO

(via oliveseraphim)

i’ve reblogged this before but this version has even better commentary and sources so

(via fromonesurvivortoanother)

also he believed women shouldn’t fight off their rapists

(via teamfreewillxgraham)

His wife died from a treatable illness because he “didn’t believe in modern medicine”.

(via pancakesandplaid)

Yes and let’s not forget what he did to Bhagat Singh also.

(via whiteopinionsrwhiteopinions)

They do NOT teach you this in school

(via problackgirl)

its about time folks find out who the real gandhi is. He considered Blacks slave, inferior and dirty. He actually wanted the whites in south africa to continue apartheid as he compared Blacks to animals.

(via postracialcomments)

I knew a fair amount of this due to being pakistani (we are kind of…not huge gandhi fans) but some of this shocked even me.

(via jaythenerdkid)

#FUCKGANDHI (via whitegirlsaintshit)

Wow…. This is very eye-opening. So disappointing, smdh.

(via poeticallyhighdreams)

yeah the reason they do not teach you this in school is DELIBERATE. gandhi was ultimately an ally of the british and basically all oppressors everywhere, and an oppressor himself. he was born into high caste and spent his entire life benefitting off the backs of his own people. and fucking postcolonial india is still obsessed with him, GREATLY because of the mark the british left on academic curriculum and the overall culture.

they taught you to love gandhi because they wanted you to love your oppressor.

(via nisfi)

my heart broke when i learned the truth about Gandhi and taught me to be more critical.

(via my-little-underground)

Okay, so while I think it’s important to know the context before passing judgements on events and the actions of individuals, I’m not sure I see the point of “LETS ALL HATE ON GHANDI NOW!” It’s very interesting and it certainly motivates people to be more critical consumers of media content- but Ghandi’s (admittedly horrifying) faults don’t change the fact that he did many good deeds and his name has been used to spread positive ideas and encourage positive social changes. 

So Hitler was a monster, but he was also demonised, and Ghandi is presented as some kind of saint- I think what’s truly fascinating about all this is the fact that both of these highly famous and infamous men, were just human. Men. People like others. With strange personal views and values, that agree and disagree with the values of others. Hitler wasn’t wholly ‘evil’ and Ghandi wasn’t wholly ‘good’. We’re only so horrified by the truth about Ghandi because we all thought he was somehow above human faults, weaknesses, cruelties and selfishness. 

Really, the people with the most extremist views and methods of action are almost always going to be less than exemplary in some ways. I’m not saying we have to forgive  him for it- but I don’t think it deserves the horrified outburst Tumblr is giving it.

“This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals—sounds that say listen to this, it is important.”
