“Same sex couples shouldn’t be able to adopt because their kids will get bullied for having two moms or two dads”
instead of not allowing same sex couples to adopt
maybe you should teach your little shitty kids not to bully
A young photographer, Kiyun, takes some great pictures highlighting the stereotypes that we have built into our heads. Click through them and see for yourself. You will see how prevalent this type of mildly racist remarks are
It’s funny how these days people seem to be trying to take our modern technology and make it old fashioned in style. We have rotary phones with iPhone jacks, wooden computer keyboards, even typewriters that you connect to your iPad! Though i love all these things, they do end up being pricey (it’s expensive making the new old!) Though as Ceci points out you won’t be chucking out your Bose sound system with this gramaphone, it’s so sweet and fun and it looks great! Plus it’s not that expensive to make (though you do need a good drill). I know my Dad would love this - but he has the drill… hmm.
1. Join a support group. Maintaining a strong support network can be very beneficial. There are different 12-step groups for family members affiliated with alcohol and drug addiction, or you may also wish to investigate Codependents Anonymous (CoDA).
Endia Beal took a few middle aged strangers on a trip to a black hair salon down the street for a make-over, gave them new “black” hairdo’s, and then took their portrait.
The rules were simple: After getting their new styles, the women had to agree to be photographed in a traditional corporate portrait, even if they weren’t happy with the result.
How To Lighten Up
Would you use the words “intense”, “serious”, or “uptight” to describe yourself? If so, you could probably stand to lighten up a bit and have more fun in your life. It’s easy to do if you follow these tips to stop taking yourself so seriously and start to lighten up:
- Don’t expect perfection from yourself. If you’re on a constant quest for perfection you’ll never be able to lighten up and have fun. First of all, no one is perfect and you’re probably exhausting yourself trying to be. Second of all, it’s our imperfections that make us who we are, and make us genuine and approachable. If you can accept your flaws and can accept the fact that you’re going to make mistakes in life, you’ll be able to take yourself much less seriously and start to relax.
- Don’t expect perfection from others. If you hold everyone to impossibly high standards, you’re bound to be disappointed. This will cause you to focus on their mistakes and negative attributes rather than enjoying their positive ones. Cut other people some slack and focus on their fun sides, rather than trying to get everyone to fit into your vision of perfection.
- Get off the schedule. If everything in your life is strictly planned, there isn’t much time for spontaneity or fun. It’s fine to stick to a schedule sometimes, but make sure you have time in your day for free, unplanned time where you are able to do whatever you feel like, on a whim. Being spontaneous will help you to go with the flow instead of being so regimented.
