Cost of a year of undergraduate study in the EU

Welcome to England where we fucking hate young people

Dear England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Fuck you. Love Scotland

Before all the cool kids express their outrage, in those Scandinavian countries university is not free, you pay extra taxes because you went to university.

Um, not Denmark? In Denmark you get money monthly for studying when you’re over eighteen and you have to pay the tax from the money, yes, but you still get 3690 to 5800 DKK after taxes if you don’t live with your parents and are studying. Each month. That’s 494 to 777 EUR. 680 to over a thousand USD a month only for going to school (if you’re a Danish citizen or you have your parents/guardians working in DK and paying taxes).


Why I think tumblr is toxic

Alright, so first of all, this is only my observation. And it’s pretty recent. And I thought some people would maybe find it interesting. If not, that’s alright. If you disagree, that’s alright, too. But maybe, maybe you’ll find something here that will make you think about some stuff.

If you fight inequality and put the responsibility of it on every white cis heterosexual person just by the virtue of the fact that they’re white, cis or heterosexual, then I am sorry, but you’re representing exactly what you’re fighting against.


Why the HIMYM season finale sucked ass

merc408:

To say I was disappointed in the series finale of How I Met Your Mother is a gross understatement. I am disconcertingly, irretrievably, unfathomably disappointed in the way the writers chose to end what used to be my absolute favorite television series of all time, to the point where it…


reeferma-dness:

WOW, we got pranked so good!! I can’t wait til they air the real finale.


It never has.

can we all just have a minute of silence for all those good hair days no one important saw you

you saw you!

and you’re the most important

This is the scariest thing I’ve ever seen in my whole life.

GUYS BEFORE YOU GET SCARED BECAUSE OF THAT PICTURE AND REACT TO IT, PLEASE RESEARCH. I just read it out to my boyfriend, because I was completely shocked by this data, and he told me to research it before anything, because it sounded extremely unlikely to him that nearly 50% of those high school students were alright with rape under certain conditions. So I found this page. The study has been done in 1979 and it is misrepresented on this picture, as “the original study did not ask “Yes” or “No”, but asked subjects on a five point scale.”

Periods are really not that bad. At worst, they’re an inconvenience. You’re a little uncomfortable, your stomach might hurt every now and then, you could feel a bit down or cranky, but that’s it. I’m sick to death of hearing people complain about the unbearable pain and agony they suffer through every month. If your period and the symptoms that come with it are truly so bad that you are literally unable to move or are throwing up, GO TO THE DOCTOR. Your period is not compulsory, you can go on the pill or other medications to control it or block it altogether. And quit campaigning that women should get the days of their period off school or work - women have been getting on with their lives, period or no period, literally since the beginning of man.
Also, stop complaining about ruined clothes - BLOOD RINSES OUT IN COLD WATER.

Lol. Ahahahaha…

you tell that to the people who have PCOS

"IT DOESN’T HAPPEN TO ME, SO CLEARLY THESE OTHER WOMEN ARE LYING ABOUT THEIR HORRIBLE AGONY!”

This is hilarious.

And yeah, why don’t you come say that to someone with PCOS? We’d have some lovely words.

Five bucks says this was written by a dude. Because, holy crap, I can’t believe another chick would be that insensitive about something a friend of hers most likely goes through.

My period a few months ago was literally so horrible that I had to crawl on the floor to get around the house and I was sweating because of how much pain I was in, even WITH STRONG PAINKILLERS. Wow.

Your period is not compulsory, you can go on the pill or other medications to control it or block it altogether”

EXCEPT SO MANY POLITICIANS ARE TRYING TO KEEP US FROM GETTING THE MEDICINE THAT HELPS US BECAUSE THEY THINK IT PROMOTES PROMISCUITY AND BAD MORALS.

Why the FUCK do you think that women fight so hard for birth control pills? And for it to be covered by health insurance? Not only is it our fucking choice on if we want to have sex or not, but without birth control, I am in AGONY for 3-4 days out of 7 and cannot go past an hour without needing to go to the bathroom to change things. 

I’m lucky enough that birth control controls my period. I don’t have any conditions like PCOS that make my period worse, I’m just on the end spectrum of “your period is normal, but its gunna suck” For others, they need birth control so that it doesn’t feel like someone’s ripping their uterus out and gnawing on it and instead feels more like someone just stabbing them repeatedly so that they can THEN go on heavy painkillers to try and deal with the pain. Also, side note: most side effects of heavy painkillers make you seriously groggy and they don’t want you to drive. 

Another side note, my roommate has epilepsy. Now i don’t know jack squat about epilepsy, but she’s told me that sometimes her cramps are so bad that it can trigger a seizure. She’s woken up a couple of times from the pain, only to have a seizure and throw up. If you knew this was a possibility, would you go outside where this could potentially happen in front of a lot of people/on stairs/WHILE DRIVING or would you take a day off and do your work at home where you can better control it? Periods don’t just cause cramps and whatever, they can trigger other conditions to act up as well WHICH CAN BE SERIOUSLY DANGEROUS.

Pretend women have completely free access to birth control and its covered by health insurance. My roommate can’t use traditional birth control because it completely negates her seizure meds, so there’s drug interactions that women have to deal with too. What if you’re allergic to the medicine? What if it causes even WORSE side effects than the symptoms you had before? 

I’m not even going to bother explaining how “feeling a little cranky” begins to cover it. Periods mean hormone surges which means various mood swings as your body balances everything out to make sure that your uterus is functioning properly. Hormone surges affect moods. Some girls get more of a surge than others. Some girls are just more sensitive to these hormonal changes than others. 


Most of the time us “feeling a little cranky” is us flabbergasted at the absolute ignorance that people like you have and the rage at the “oh you’re mad, you must be on your period” like our anger is only justified if we’re on our period and isn’t valid (but thats a whole other issue)


As for blood rinses out in cold water? How about when you leak onto your jeans in the first hour of school? Are you suggesting that I go to the bathroom and rinse out my jeans on cold water, and then go to class the rest of the day with a WET CROTCH? Because I’m not gunna have enough time to sit with my pants under the hand dryer until they dry. 

Blood doesn’t even always rinse out in cold water, more just rinses out in cold water. It depends on the fabric, and you have to rinse it RIGHT AWAY. Most of the time girls wake up with their periods, after the blood has been there for HOURS. So there’s underwear, pants and potentially sheets stained because you didn’t even know your period even started.

Don’t even get me started on the fact that in order to keep the blood clean and off clothes is that we have to buy expensive pads or tampons, which are either basically diapers that you have to sit in and feel like you pissed yourself all day and worry about leaking, or a wad of cotton that you shove up in your vagina and worry about leaking.  

And yes, women have been “getting on with life” for as long as we’ve had periods, because we’re BADASSES. We are TOUGH and we are STRONG. But women in the past have also wanted to take breaks due to periods. Don’t try and fool yourself into thinking that in the past women were just like “Oh it appears i’ve gotten my period” because a spot of red appeared on their undergarments AND THATS IT. No. They went through the same thing but most of the time had to be like “well FUCK” and tough out the day, and then cry from the pain in private. They would want a break then just as much as we do now. 

Before making sweeping statements like this, why don’t you crack open a human repro book and actually look at the female side of it, and all of the problems and complications of periods that are DOCUMENTED.

And if you are a female instead of a male, OP, count yourself blessed that you think periods are easy to deal with. You could have had it so much worse.

Reblogging again because YO^^^

Let me just add that when you use birth control and have migraines, like I do, it means you are extra risked to get a blood clock, especially in your brain. For women with migraines that show neurological symptoms, as far as I know, it is too risky to use birth control. I am lucky enough to not have very bad period symptoms, but son, let me tell you, going on birth control and dosing yourself with all these hormones was extremely confusing for me at the beginning. I’ve never had PMS or anything like that, not very much at least. When I started using the patches, I could go from deep, deep sadness to laughing my ass off in seconds and that was literally completely out of my control. Because it’s not like you can control your mood very much - when you’re dosed with all those hormones, it seems that you get sad for ~no reason and sometimes I realize that, but believe me, it feels like there are all the reasons and even though it might seem irrelevant, for me it’s so saddening that I start crying and I really feel hurt and in pain. And the next thing you know, my boyfriend hugs me and I go completely ecstatic and I can’t even explain why I go from one extreme to another.

And I think it’s so disrespectful for anyone to ask “are you on your period?” and I think it’s one of the worst jokes ever created, because all that anger you have in you, all that sadness and frustration, it might be caused by the hormonal change in your body - alright, but it feels REAL. And if it FEELS REAL, IT IS REAL. I AM REALLY HURT AND WHAT IS GOING ON WITH MY HORMONES SHOULD NOT BE AN EXCUSE TO NEGLECT MY FEELINGS. It is cruel and it is unfair to do that to anyone. If you feel bad, I don’t go “oh, low levels of serotonin in your brain again? gee, just get over it”, I go “what made you feel sad?”.  

Oh, and did I mention how fucking sick it is that teenage girls are ASHAMED to buy tampons and pads? They are EMBARRASSED when it shows that they use those? What the hell is that supposed to be?

huggabutts summed it up pretty perfectly. I won’t deal and I can’t deal with how period is a joke these days. I mean, fuck. It’s not anything I asked for. Yet I am made to pay for tampons, pads and all the bullshit. I pay for my birth control patches and let me tell you, period IS NOT cheap. All in all, I spend money on aspirin (against migraines that increase, mind you, when you go on birth control or during your period), tampons, birth control patches and ruined underwear. And let me remind you, I have the good type of period where I don’t have to go through agony every month like some of the women above. Imagine having to go through with all this EVERY SINGLE MONTH and then being made fun of, because you’re extra frustrated and your feelings are degraded to having your period. Something that, as mentioned above, can be dangerous for you, people make fun of. I mean, come the fuck on. Would it really hurt to sympathize a little bit and cut the bullshit? Let me tell you, that would make me less frustrated already.

I don’t know what upsets me more, the people who laugh and say that it’s like christmas as a reaction to the fact Justin Bieber got arrested or the people that find endless excuses for him.

Celebrities are so dehumanized. They’re like things that only exist for…

Yeah, the point with Jared Padalecki exactly. I mean, I bet he’s a good guy, ok. I talked to my boyfriend about this today and you know, what he said was probably really motivated by all the positive feedback for commenting on the drug thing. And then he said that sexist thing, because hey, everyone calls Justin a girl. That’s funny. My fans will love it.

It’s a completely different issue, but I bet you, I bet you so much, that he didn’t even realize he said something wrong. He doesn’t realize that he might have offended women by using femininity as an insult, because it’s such a big part of our language, you know. Such a big part of our lives, I bet he didn’t even think, he wrote it, because it was a common joke and his last hate on Bieber made a lot of people happy. But I completely agree. He’s a grown up man, he should definitely know better than be bothered by some fucking teenage celebrity. 


I don’t know what upsets me more, the people who laugh and say that it’s like christmas as a reaction to the fact Justin Bieber got arrested or the people that find endless excuses for him.

Celebrities are so dehumanized. They’re like things that only exist for mass entertainment. And it actually terrifies me. I mean, I think Justin Bieber is a spoiled brat and that everyone who tries to excuse his drunk driving should rethink what they’re actually doing. And I think that reality check my do him some good, you know.

But people are actually, idk, they hate him to the point they laugh at his misfortune (any misfortune, in this case it was of course his completely conscious choice, but I mean like times when he got hit with a bottle or whatever). You know, he pisses me off, because I don’t want to hear about his life, I’m not interested, I don’t want his face popping up in my social media, etc. But he’s just a spoiled kid who has too much money, too much fans and too big of an ego. I mean, what makes you hate him so much that you keep cursing at him and shit? What makes you hate a person that you don’t know so much that you send them death threats? That you joke about them dying to replace some rapper?

It’s so strange for me. The whole concept of a celebrity. The dehumanization of it. People who exist as a fantasy of millions. It’s just so strange, I think.

No, the tweet is fake as well. Look at the date. Also, I don’t think that was ever Mark’s icon.
