1. Millions of people are suffering: they want to be loved but they don’t know how to love. And love cannot exist as a monologue; it is a dialogue, a very harmonious one.

  3. September 8 was proclaimed International Literacy Day by UNESCO on November 17, 1965. It was first celebrated in 1966. Its aim is to highlight the importance of literacy to individuals, communities and societies. On International Literacy Day each year, UNESCO reminds the international community of the status of literacy and adult learning globally. Celebrations take place around the world.

    Some 775 million adults lack minimum literacy skills; one in five adults is still not literate and two-thirds of them are women; 60.7 million children are out-of-school and many more attend irregularly or drop out. Read More || Edit || Quote by me.

  6. How it began.

    sirfrogsworth:

    When I was a boy, I realized that I loved to eat. Despite the teachings of my parents, I was too young to really understand the consequences. I would sneak food out of the pantry. I’d eat entire bags of Cheez-its. I would eat giant bowls of nothing but shredded cheddar cheese. I even invented a…

    When ISIS generates revenue, it’s “exacting tribute”

    When the U.S. does it, it’s “taxing citizens”

    In reality, there isn’t a single difference. Both are theft.

  15. Statutory rape victim forced to pay child support

    So let’s consider this:

    Adult female fucks a 14 year old boy… everyone’s cool with it.

    Adult female withholds that “man’s” child from him for eight years… everyone’s cool with it.

    Adult female signs up for government assistance, names him as the father, and now he has to pay FIFTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS in back child support for a child that is the product of a rape that he never knew he had…. everyone’s cool with it.

    "The idea that a woman would have to send money to a man who raped her is absolutely off-the-charts ridiculous," he said. "It wouldn’t be tolerated, and it shouldn’t be tolerated."

    Unless, of course, the genders were reversed…

    everything about this is stupid. I’m so over this whole “I’m Never Gonna Take Responsibility For Any Of My Actions” mentality that seemingly everyone has and this whole story reeks of irresponsibility on both of their parts.

    How was the 14 year old boy irresponsible in this scenario?

    He is taking responsibility FOR HIS RAPIST’S ACTIONS. He was 14 years old, he was raped, and if you read anything about him you’ll find that he paying child support and even trying to be part of his daughter’s life. An older woman takes advantage of a 14 year old boy, keeps his daughter away from him for 8 years and demands child support that is back dated to WHEN HE WAS A CHILD HIMSELF and you want him to take responsibility for his actions. Give me a break, you can’t really be that stupid.

    what the fucking hell is on my dash

    what the fucking hell is wrong with these fucking people

    And of course, feminists do not give a shit

    This whole situation is unacceptable (and as a side note this is a feminist giving a shit.)

    Hold a fucking rally. Your movement has the numbers. It has the cash. If it can send a representative of NOW to the Michigan Legislature to attempt to block a biological father from so much as being legally ACKNOWLEDGED to be the father it can fucking do something about this.
