    What makes me so happy about this is that she isn’t telling you you must love your body or that you are obligated to. She saying you have permission to. And that’s important, because there are a lot of reasons why people have trouble with self-love.  But the idea that you aren’t supposed to love your body, that you aren’t allowed to for whatever reason, needs to be crushed. If you can’t love you body right now, if your body causes you pain or disphoria or distress, you aren’t required to love it. But you are ALLOWED to. You are entitled to the chance to make peace with your body, if you ever reach a point where you are ready to. No one else should be trying to stop you.

    Bill Nye is my favorite

    Dawkins needs to get over himself

    Bam. Dawkins is a jerk.

    Dawkins looks like he is being physically repelled by Bill Nye’s presence. Like Bill has this aura that pushes back assholes or something.

    September 28, 1948: Eleanor Speaks in Favor of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

    On this day in 1948, United Nations delegate and former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt delivered a speech in Paris entitled, “The Struggle for Human Rights.” Her goal was to create a sense of unity among nations through the common principles of the Declaration, a document that she helped draft and approve. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was approved by the UN General Assembly that December.

    n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.
