Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked

Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.

Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!

I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.

Just a reminder that the LGBT community isn’t some magical place where everyone is accepted. 

Welcome to the LGBT “community,” where the B is made-up and the T doesn’t matter!

I like how a lot of these response confuse bisexual with poly relationships.

I literally overcame self esteem issues by making ironically over-arrogant claims because even if you’re joking about something a lot you start to believe it and that can totally work in a good way if you let it

They’ve done studies and the “fake it till you make it” mindset actually works and if you keep up a mantra you come to believe it after a time. It actually is how I came to really love myself.

No really guys they’re actually teaching this shit to us in the army to try and combat the rate of suicides amongst armed forces members.

Rape isn’t about uncontrollable sexual desire. You only have to listen in on a Call of Duty game to see that. When that kid crows, “I raped you!”, he’s not calling the other guy sexy; he’s saying he defeated him, dominated him, humiliated him. That’s what rape is about, and that should scare you.

gonna reblog this till I stop tumbling

Last night, I received some pretty gross texts from an unknown number. He was looking for a girl named Jess, and asking for Jess to “give him the pussy” again. After figuring all of this out, I stopped replying. This morning I woke up to more messages from him, and I decided to mess with him a bit because the way he was talking was appalling. Also, I may have wanted to re-enact one of my favorite Scrubs bits from the later seasons. This is what followed [Fair warning, the messages are fairly graphic, and beyond that pretty gross in more serious ways.]

It started out as me messing with this guy, seeing if he’d actually be willing to show up to a Taco Bell with a red balloon. Spoiler alert, he was willing. That alone is just a funny story to share with friends, but as the conversation progressed, I realized that there was a bigger issue at hand. This case may be slightly unique in that the man, whom I’ll refer to from this point forward as Creepy Pete, thought he was speaking to a prositute, but that isn’t really relevant because his actions were reprehensible regardless of the person he’s speaking to. It isn’t that uncommon for men to speak to women in this tone. Whether it’s just texting asking for sex, asking for pictures and getting upset when things don’t go your way, or even just talking to your server when you’re out getting dinner, the way we speak to women needs to be re-examined. Prostitute or not, nobody should be called a “stupid whore” for not giving someone what they want, or doing things her own way.

Now, we’re not all Creepy Petes, but it would be naive to think that there aren’t a lot of Creepy Petes in the world. Part of the problem is assuming that if you’re not a Creepy Pete then you’re in the clear. At one point or another, we’ve all been guilty of making a woman uncomfortable or saying something with good intentions but actually being incredibly misogynistic. We all need to be more conscious of the way we treat women because like it or not, we live in a time where a lot of women feel unsafe simply because they’re women. It’s not enough to say, “Well I just won’t be creepy/sexist/rude towards women,” because a lot of what we perceive to be acceptable may not actually be okay. Society has allowed a lot of things to be acceptable by the general public when it actually makes individuals incredibly uncomfortable. This doesn’t end with getting rid of Creepy Petes, it ends with every single one of us taking a step back, evaluating our actions, and being conscious of the things we say or do and the consequences they have. We can’t dismiss ourselves from this issue because we aren’t parading around calling women whores. We’re a part of the problem too, and in 2014 it’s not a problem we should be having, but we have a long way to go.

It’s an incredibly uncomfortable conversation to have, and it’s not an easy one to have because we’ve grown accustomed to a certain way of life, but there’s an entire segment of the population that feel they have to walk around at night with some form of self-defense simply because of their gender, and that’s not okay. We all need to be having a discussion about how to solve this problem.

Idiot girl in my politics class: “it’s a woman’s responsibility to prevent getting pregnant, plan B is only for irresponsible people”

Me: “So are you supposed to nicely ask your rapist to wear a condom before he violates you?”

Class: *laughs at her misogyny*

The worst part of this? A rape victim requested that her rapist use a condom, having recognized that it was going to happen and she couldn’t stop it.

It was used against her in court as a form of consent and the guy walked.

call-me-wiggy:

I seriously don’t know who started this whole “guys don’t like strong women” bullshit
Because there is nothing in the world more attractive than strong independent women who call you out when you are being an ass.

Are you expecting anyone on this tag to give a crap what you do or don’t find attractive?

Ugh ugh UGH. I kind of want to vomit. Holy crap have I lost some serious respect for Google…
