Currently in process of changing theme, eep

I reblog far too many pics of 1D and 5SOS for my own good, as well as other random cool things that I like or make me laugh.

How to change the world one shrug at a time.
This is, by far, the best response to inquiries about male cross-dressing that I have ever heard. If you don’t already love Eddie Izzard, you might now. His response in a nutshell? “I’m not wearing women’s dresses. I’m wearing my dresses. I bought them. They are mine and I’m a man. They are very clearly a man’s dresses.”
Johnny Depp does a similarly good job of refusing to take the bait in this clip from the Late Show with David Letterman. Letterman queries his rationale for wearing a women’s engagement ring. Depp just plays dumb and ultimately says that it didn’t fit his fiancée, but it did fit him. So… shrug.
The phenomenon of being questioned about one’s performance of gender is called “gender policing.” Generally there are three ways to respond to gender policing: (1) apologize and follow the gender rules, (2) make an excuse for why you’re breaking the rules (which allows you to break them, but still affirms the rules), or (3) do something that suggests that the rules are stupid or wrong.  Only the last one is effective in changing or eradicating norms delimiting how men and women are expected to behave.
In these examples, both Izzard and Depp made the choice to disregard the rules, even when being policed. It seems like a simple thing, but it’s very significant. It’s the best strategy for getting rid of these rules altogether.
Thanks to Dmitriy T.C. for the links!

Tom stole my camera from me to take a picture. I told him I had it, but he was all, “I’m taller” so I had to teach him how to hold it (I dropped it & the battery thing broke) & he took the worst pictures.
This one he accidentally zoomed in on. 


I CANNOT HANDLE THIS
ALL THESE FEELS
I JUST
FEELS MY BROKE
WHAT IS GRAMMAR



"I had to teach him how to hold it"
"This one he accidentally zoomed in on"
THIS is how Tom Hiddleston looks in a picture he took accidentally and happened to zoom in on??? I bet there’s nothing he could fuck up even if he wanted to.

My therapist asked me to create something “motivating” so I made these.

lol.

I really love these, and I reblog them every single time. Some of you don’t realize how easy it’s to forget to do some of those stuff or how hard they can be some days.
