i love the Women Against Feminism that are like “I dont need feminism because i can admit i need my husband to open a jar for me and thats ok!” cause listen 1. get a towel 2. get the towel damp 3. put it on the lid and twist. BAM now men are completely useless. you, too, can open a jar. time to get a divorce

CEO Who Hates His Title

Climbing mountains and living on the beach, Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia Outdoor Clothing, had no intention of being one of the most successful people in his industry. However, he has used his title and his company to do more than just tell southern frat apparel. Chouinard has driven environmental campaigns, started one of the first maternity leave programs, and changed the way we look at business. It’s people like Chouinard that make us realize that doing big business with a soul, while incredibly difficult, is possible. 

I highly recommend reading what the Wall Street Journal had to say about Chouinard:

The inferiority of women is man-made.

American author, activist, and lecturer Helen Keller, June 11, 1916

Reminder that Helen Keller was a bad ass, and the fact that people only remember her as an “inspirational” child is really annoying.

Do you remember Ken? The little boy who had been giving his dinner to starving dogs. 9-year-old Ken just opened a no-kill dog shelter. Faith in humanity restored. 

Ken’s mission is simple and straight-forward: “The official at the pound said most dogs are put down because only 20-30% of owners claim their dogs, and no animal welfare organization is doing something about it. I want to save as many of those dogs as I can from being killed for no reason.

Although Ken has wanted to shelter stray dogs for a while, the ball really began rolling after pictures of himself feeding stray dogs went viral. Strangers from all over the world expressed their support for him and decided to help him achieve his dream. Now, with some help from his dad and other concerned locals, he is helping stray dogs on the street recover from their many diseases and illnesses and hopefully find a loving home.

My dad told me it would take a lot of money and 20 years for me to get an animal shelter. He said only grown ups can raise enough money to start an animal shelter,” Ken explains on his website. “Some very kind people who saw these pictures donated money to help me care for the dogs. We got enough money to get the dogs I was feeding off the street, feed them high quality canned food, and provide them with veterinary care. They gained a LOT of weight, their open wounds healed, and their fur grew back. They also learned not to be scared of humans.

that’s great for all the little boys in the theater, but you know what I want?

i want a little girl to help the heroes

i want a six-year old redhead to kick nat’s gun to her

i want a twelve-year old with braces and a lisp to shake cap back to consciousness

i want a nine-year old latina girl to take clint by the hand and walk him down unfamiliar streets back to the main fight

i want a sixteen-year old black girl to kick an enemy in the back of the knees to save sam wilson

because girls are sitting in that audience too

and they deserve to see that
