Why isn’t anyone talking about this?
Watch non black cosplayers and lovers of cosplay stay silent on this.
When you discuss the wage gap, here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Only white women make $0.77 to a man’s dollar.
- Black women make about $0.68 to a man’s dollar.
- Latina women make about $0.58 to a man’s dollar.
I will keep reblogging this to point out that disabled people, including men, make 22 cents on the dollar. Mostly because it is legal to pay us below minimum wage, but whatevs.
9 FACTS ABOUT HONEY
Your kitchen cupboards are filled with goodness that go beyond preparing your favorite meal. Household goods, including apple cider vinegar, baking soda and oatmeal also make for amazing ingredients in at-home spa treatments.
Wanting to get more use out of our honey bear squeeze bottles, we put a call-out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram asking followers how they sweeten up their homemade hair and skincare recipes. Here are nine ways to incorporate raw honey into your beauty regimen.
Hair mask: During the summer months, our strands take a brutal beating with exposure to harmful UV rays, chlorine, salt water and humidity. A honey-based hair treatment like this one will add shine to lackluster locks and condition split ends.
Facial scrub: Do you have sensitive skin? Instead of using a harsh, store-bought scrub, try whipping up a face mask with honey, brown sugar, olive oil and lemon juice. It’s less abrasive, yet still sloughs away dead skin cells to reveal a smoother and more vibrant complexion.
Hair removal: Many skincare brands are looking back to ancient times and formulating honey-based at-home wax kits. But you can put on your own chemist gloves by mixing honey and lemon juice into a sugaring wax that’s safe to use on your face, legs and bikini line.
Scars: Waiting for a scar to fade can be pretty nerve-wracking. Speed up the process by smoothing raw honey on the area before bed and covering with a bandage. In the morning, remove the cover-up and cleanse the skin.
Pimples and acne: Honey’s anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties draw out impurities from the skin, thus targeting breakouts, reducing redness and calming inflammation.
Moisturizer: As a natural humectant, honey is super hydrating. Add a few tablespoons to some whipped or melted shea butter to create a moisturizer that can be used from head to toe.
Bath treatment: Cleopatra — we’re referring to the real Egyptian queen and not Elizabeth Taylor — was rumored to take luxurious baths in milk and honey. The alpha hydroxy acids in the dairy product breaks down dry, flaky skin, while the enzymes in the sweet food soften skin.
Chapped lips: Much like the homemade facial scrub above, you can use the same remedy (minus the lemon juice) for dry, chapped lips. Your matte lipstick would thank you if it could.
Sunburn: One of the best beauty secrets our grandmothers passed down to us is soothing sunburns with honey. While we take every precaution to avoid this summer skincare mistake, our limbs instantly feel better after dabbing on a little honey.
I once went to a concert with a friend (I don’t remember the band, she dragged me along) when I was 16. They were starting a wall of death and this guy who was flirting with me decides it would be funny to pull my top down, exposing my breasts, then throw me in the middle of this wall of death right as it’s about to meet. When I stumble in the middle and hit the wall someone screamed “STOP! EXPOSED GIRL!” and I thought they were all going to oggle at me. Instead, one guy quickly helped me cover up, three more helped me to my feet, and another asked who did that. When I pointed out the guy, two of them looked at him, me, each other, then nodded and punched the guy in the face before forcing him into the wall that was about to form again.
Metal men are gentlemenly as shit.
This fucking this^^^
I’ve always loved this.
I went to my first concert a few months ago and there were these really tall men with black vest tops and tattoos and piercings surrounding us screaming loudly when the music started playing, but then we realised this kid in the crowd had lost his mum so they tried to comfort him and when he started crying they asked him his name and he shakily sobbed “Eliot” at which point they lifted him in the air onto the shoulder’s and shouted at the top of their lungs “ELIOT’S MUM, ELIOT IS LOOKING FOR YOU. EXCUSE ME HAS ANYONE SEEN ELIOT’S MUM!!!” at which point Eliot started giggling between sobs until he finally found his mum while in the air.
Seriously, I have felt safer in groups of death metal dudes than in the group of the preppiest preps that ever prepped.
Metal guys are one big family. Simple as that.
I remember seeing this for the first time like a year ago and not once have I seen it and not reblogged it because this is just amazing.
