i literally would never date or even like a guy who disliked the fact that i was a feminist please love yourself do not date boys that don’t care about feminism
I would never date someone who either:
- doesn’t understand women rights or why it’s important. - makes homophobic/sexist jokes. - Doesn’t care about events that are happening around the world / Someone who’d rather live in a fantasy world. - doesn’t care about animal rights.
I want someone who stimulates my mind, body and soul in a positive way. Basically, someone with a common sense.
1. She’s hilarious—a brilliant comedian that will surely be looked upon as one of history’s greatest. From Saturday Night Live, Mean Girls and Baby Mama, to starring as Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation, Amy lives her life to make others laugh. She’s managed to turn her five-year role as Leslie Knope, a small-town government employee fiercely dedicated to serving her townspeople, into an icon for selflessness, determination, and unapologetic she-power. Amy’s absolutely fearless in her approach to comedy, and believes that everyone can find confidence in silliness.
There’s power in looking silly and not caring that you do.Amy Poehler
2. When she’s not producing or starring in a super awesome television show, movie, or hosting giant awards shows as part of the coolest BFF duo to ever live (do I even have to say “Tina Fey”?), she focuses her energy on her movement aimed to empower young women. The movement, called Smart Girls at the Party, is a social media network for sharing uplifting stories about women who do incredible things for the world in every area, from politics to art and music. However, perhaps the most well known portion of the movement is her web series called “Ask Amy,” in which she answers questions from young girls seeking advice. She records these advice videos out of her home, on set, or anywhere she has the spare time (somehow!) to make a new video. In these videos, Amy always speaks from the bottom of her heart, and her vulnerability truly shines through as she shares her personal experiences. Plus, she manages to do all this as though she was speaking to a good friend while on a coffee catch-up date.
3. As easily as she can talk the talk, she definitely follows through with the walk: in 2013, Amy traveled to Haiti with the Worldwide Orphans Foundation (WWO) to care for and play with children who don’t receive much affection (you can read more about her trip in this Huffington Post article). Then, Amy and actor Jon Hamm hosted an Emmy’s “losers party” that had an admission fee benefitting WWO. Oh, AND she went on to give an incredibly humble, tear-inducing speech about how many children lack and yet so greatly deserve love across the globe at Variety’s Power of Women Awards, saying “There are so many children in the world who have nothing… Who are we to be in this room and living this life without helping them?” She continues to be an advocate for care and support of the world’s orphans, especially in a country like America where we have so many opportunities that others aren’t always afforded.
4.She’s writing a book to drop in fall of this year. According to a New York Times article, the publisher says it’s “inspired in part by Poehler’s interest in helping young women navigate the adult world,” and that it will be “an illustrated, nonlinear diary full of humor and honesty and brimming with true stories, fictional anecdotes and life lessons.” It sounds amazing like everything else she does, but let’s face it: if Amy doodled some flaming turds in a notebook, I would still buy it and manage to see the world’s most inspirational message in it.
5.She’s a loving mom of two boys, ages 3 and 5, and normal woman who hates seeing pictures of herself. I think it’s safe to say that she lives a life many women dream of: motherhood, success, happiness, and living to serve and benefit others. It is for these reasons and infinite more, that I think that women and girls would be extremely hard pressed to find a single role model better than the selfless, hardworking, and phenomenal Amy Poehler.
Amy Poehler is a role model for us all, and 5 reasons aren’t enough to describe her awesomeness.
Hi my name is Sami Ahmed, I'm an activist & writing to ask you to support my mother's human rights. She was a former child bride & i've been campaigning to raise awareness about this though my organisation Justice For Saira. Please do read my last post which has the link to my petition that you can sign. My campaign has 11,000 supporters so far and this has mostly come from Tumblr bloggers! I look forward to your support! Thank you, Sami.
How brave of you to start a campaign about child brides, and raise awareness for such a horrible tradition. And how sad that you’re mother had to endure this.
As I’m very aware of this horrible tradition (as I’m an activist myself) I’ve signed the petition in support for this cause and your organization, and i hope many others will sign the petition too. Every little bit helps and it’s good to see that people like you will make a stand and fight for human rights.
I’m posting this question on my tumblr in hope others will see this and sign too.
Okay kids, we’ve all been hearing a lot about the situation in Ukraine and today marked a major development when Russia sent troops in. Here’s a quick breakdown that will hopefully clear up some questions and misconceptions floating around..
Very little people that I know personally know that I have a tumblr account.
I don’t go around telling people that I have a tumblr account because I’ve learned in the past that people can use it against you in a bad way, or even ridicule you for liking things that they mind find strange.
Sometimes I post thing that matter to me on Facebook and then they intetpertate it the wrong way, they either get offensive or they will deconstruct your belief because they don’t agree.
It’s fine if you don’t agree with me, or that you don’t get that fighting for women rights doesn’t mean that I hate men. Just either respect my beliefs or ask for an explanation. People don’t back up their arguments, instead they rather take it the wrong way and judge based upon that.
Lately I’ve been wanting to share my tumblr with friends, but I’m afraid that it will backfire on me. I shouldn’t be afraid of that, I don’t care about how others see me lately, I really don’t. I know who I am, and what I stand for. And I know being confident like that, meaning being happy with who I am, will get you weird looks, because some people can get envious.
So, I’m contemplating starting a separate tumblr. It’s double the effort (and I don’t put much effort on this tumblr so starting a second one will mean putting more energy on posting) but yeah. It’s a concept.
It’s that or putting this one public, though I’ve had this tumblr almost since the start of tumblr itself, which means 5 years. This has been my baby for five years, there’s history on my tumblr and I don’t want to delete post, post that people can hold against me :p
I don’t have anything to hide, but I know the negative side of sharing your personal life online. I started blogging since 2003, maybe even before that but more minor. Some people are too invasive and with a second tumblr I can control that. I like to post the most random things on this blog, from important stuff to silly stuff that only tumblr people will get :p
Anyway guise. What should I do? How many friends in real life know about your tumblr?
