~    Pseudo-intellectual white dude who prefers to imagine that he’s more enlightened than feminists and also is uncomfortable with the thought that he’s part of the problem and also has a incorrect conception of feminism.

"THIS PICTURE WILL NOT CHANGE THE WORLD, BUT I STILL NEED FEMINISM AND I’M GOING TO REALLY, REALLY TELL YOU WHY":
-Because I got called a whore for wearing a short plaid skirt when I was 10
-and because when Nujood Ali from Yemen was 10 she got divorced
-Because black girls’ names became my classmates’ favorite “joke” when I was 11
-and because when an 11-year-old girl in Texas was raped by 18 men the New York Times wrote of how the girl “dressed older than her age”
-Because I started counting calories when I was 14
-and because when Malala Yousafzai was 14 she was shot in the head for trying to go to school
-Because I heard a boy greet a girl with “hey slut” today at age 16-and because when a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville, Ohio was filmed being raped by two boys at a party while unconscious the CNN reporters talked about how tragic it was because the rapists had such bright futures as athletes
-Because I will have to watch my drink at all bars and parties when I am 22
-and because when CeCe McDonald was 22 she was sentenced to 41 months in prison for defending herself against a man who screamed transphobic, racist insults at her and then slashed her face with a bottle
-Because no matter what age I am the biggest threat to men will still be heart disease, and the biggest threat to women will still be men.
-Because it is not just about me, because it is not just about anger, because it is not just a JOKE, because it is not just about “hating men,” because it is not just about girls with vaginas, because it is not just about ending “slut”, because it is not just about white straight girls in Rookie magazine, because it is not just about writing on backs, because it is not just about the fact that gay men are “fags” but lesbians are “hot,” because it is not just about pictures of thin white girls being the only google image results for the search phrase “beautiful women”, because it is not just about writing signs, because it is not just about what she was wearing or how many times she said yes before she changed her answer to no, because misogyny is not just about one thing and feminism is not just about one thing and it is not just “a trend” and it will not “happen” in just one way.
-And because yes. It is about equality for EVERYONE, but first and foremost it needs to be about equality for girls, because they are not treated equally to men, in every single sense, and you are not going to take feminism away from me and call me bossy/hostile/aggressive and make this about yourself or make it into a joke, because truth be told, I’m not joking and I’m tired of explaining. If you want to call yourself a feminist, you work hard to spread feminism, you do not turn this into a contest of whose struggle is greater and constantly demand to know what you can get out of feminism personally. Feminism is not just about you, or me, it is about everyone. If you’re male and you’re tired of men being stereotyped as hyper-masculine, soulless, sexist, inherent leader-tyrant creatures, then go out and prove the patriarchy wrong and fight for girls, like someone with a soul who believes in equality would. Then, yes, feminism will be about everyone.

"TALKING HEADS" (GADAJACE GLOWY): a short documentary, directed by Krzysztof Kieslowski in 1980, turns a simple idea into a masterpiece: ordinary people of different age and background in Poland were asked 3 simple questions. Their spontaneous responses reveal the way they see life…

Part 1: “WHO ARE YOU?”: A difficult question with a simple answer…

Indoor Tropical Fruit for Temperate Gardeners

Here are some things I’m growing indoors right now:

  1. Banana
  2. Pineapple (can be grown from the top of store-bought fruit)
  3. Mango (can be grown from the pit of store-bought fruit)
  4. Coffee
  5. Avocado (can be grown from the pit of store-bought fruit)
  6. Pomegranate (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit
  7. Passionfruit (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  8. Kiwifruit (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  9. Guava (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  10. Cherimoya (can be grown from the pits of store-bought fruit)
  11. Kumquat (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  12. Blood Orange (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  13. Mandarin Orange (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  14. Clementine (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  15. Lemon (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)
  16. Grapefruit (can be grown from the seeds of store-bought fruit)

Not pictured:

Date palms(can be grown from the pits of store-bought fruit)
Jujube:
 (can be grown from the pits of store-bought fruit)

I would like to try:

Papaya, Lime, Citron, Dragonfruit, and Starfruit.

Many of these, like the avocado, may never actually bear fruit indoors: but, there is a chance that smaller trees—like the lemon, orange, kumquat, guava, and coffee—could (provided they have enough light). I dream of the day when I could even think of building a heated greenhouse for these, but for now, a sunny window will have to suffice!

Either way, sprouting the waste from your groceries is a fine way to get free houseplants!

oooh that´s an amazing tropical fruit garden!
Let me tell you that the starfruit has trippled its size now…will photograph it in daylight and post up.
Also, you should definitely give mullberry a try (can be grown from seeds of store-bought)
