125 pictures of beautiful furisode kimono on the streets of Shibuya during Coming of Age Day 2014 in Japan. This is one of my favorite fashion days of the year - so many pretty kimono everywhere in Tokyo!!!
There’s unfortunately a lot of men who don’t realize how they contribute to sexism and sexist behavior, or who don’t want to acknowledge that sexism exists because of the privileges it affords them. The important thing to know is that you can change it, by helping educate people about the issues sexism causes and proliferates. The only way things won’t change is if we stay silent about the problems we all face because of gender.
Also, good for you on making him the ex-boyfriend, instead of keeping him boyfriend. He doesn’t sound like a worthwhile guy if he doesn’t listen to the issues and blames women for ‘tempting men’. You’re much better off without that kind of person in your life.
I really am much better without that kind of person. But it’s so sad and frustrating to see that many men think this way today.
We may just want to ignore them but yeah if we stay silent they’ll think we don’t judge them so they keep doing it. Sad.

Map of the World by Natural Skin Color
i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening
actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d.
THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.
Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.
