I have a theory that nobody actually works in Ikea. Their ‘employees’ are people that have gotten lost inside, and over the years they simply assimilate into the store. They find themselves wearing clothes that match the logo, they forget the need to eat or sleep. They are Ikea. Ikea is them.
We are all Ikea.
Newsflash, Everyone: Tom Daley Isn’t Gay
He’s queer. And yes, it does make a big difference.
Tom explicitly says in the video that he still “fancies girls,” and he never uses the word “gay,” “homosexual,” or any other synonymous word to describe his sexuality.
The fact that media outlets immediately jump to the conclusion that he’s gay not only contributes to the issue of LGBTQ erasure, it also misrepresents what Tom Daley said, which was exactly what he wanted to avoid by making the YouTube video in the first place.
So get your facts straight everyone. Tom made an incredibly courageous decision in coming out and he deserves our support and respect.
'Screw writing “strong” women. Write interesting women. Write well-rounded women. Write complicated women. Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner. Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband. Write a woman who doesn’t need a man. Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks. THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people.’ - madlori
Inspired by (x) (x) and (x). Original idea and first eight GIFs made by Tanzila. Last eight GIFs made by yours truly. These awesome people helped to decide which characters would go where: Erin, Rachel, Bethany, Rowen.
This is beautiful.

somebody help me
i’m not from the US, so I have no idea what the civil war is about, and it’s my report for tomorrow (actually today) (it’s 2 AM) (i’m panicking like whoa)
Can someone please oh please give me a short summary about what the heck it’s about because I literally have no clue what I’m reporting about. I have videos and visual aids ready, but I don’t actually understand.
Okay so I don’t if this’ll help much? I don’t live in America either and it’s been a while since I did it in school and I’m getting this information from random websites so this might not be 100% accurate.
Basically, the southern and northern states in America disagreed about a lot of things, and the south wanted to keep its slaves and the government that was elected wanted to abolish it, so seven states in the south decided to not be part of the US anymore, and they seceded from the union and became the Confederate States of America.
The north didn’t recognise the confederate states to begin with, but in 1961 the confederate army took control of a fort and the US wasn’t happy so they began fighting.
A few more states joined the confederacy and there were a loads of battles and stuff, but after a while the southern armies began to surrender and their president was captured by the north.
The war led to slavery being abolished in the US and united it into one nation.
