I love this new trend of actresses calling reporters out on their bullshit.
Can I just, Renner’s face is the second and third frames. He’s so disappointed in the male race at that moment. And so proud of Scarlett.
Scarlett Johansen, you are badass.
When people ask me what rape culture is, or try and tell me that it doesn’t exist, I’m going to show them this article.
Reblogging again because important.
This article is disgusting!… What to do when your girlfriend or any woman says no to sex? The only answer: Stop!The fact that this doesn’t have more notes scares me.
This article should be titled “How to be a socially-accepted rapist” AND IT IS SICKENING AS SHIT

Marking the 450th Anniversary of William Shakespeare’s Birth
Every year at the end of April, a celebration of the life and works of the great playwright William Shakespeare takes place in the market town of Stratford-upon-Avon, England. Shakespeare was born there in 1564 and cultural celebrations in Stratford’s streets, with entertainers, street performers and traditional Morris dancers, go back hundreds of years.
From his plays to his sonnets, Shakespeare’s extensive works have produced a legacy of characters, ideas, histories and, of course, words—it is thought he contributed more than 2,000 to the English language. His plays are a staple on many school curriculums, and continue to be reinterpreted on stage, rewritten in fiction and retold on screen.
The man himself is still very much a mystery and few details exist about his private life. Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway with whom he bore three children, before relocating to London to pursue his acting and writing career. He died at the age of 52 on April 23, 1616—a date which fell very near to his birthday in the same month (the exact date is unknown).
This year marks the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth and, on Saturday, a special procession will take place in Stratford, ending with celebrants laying flowers on Shakespeare’s grave in the Holy Trinity Church. The world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company will also host a full program of shows.
Happy birthday, Shakespeare! Read what the Globe Theater has in store to celebrate.
But will there be cakes & ale?!
It’s hard to find a state now that isn’t trying to capitalize on some sort of wine trail, but New Jersey, which has nearly 50 wineries statewide, offers several reasons for excitement.
I grew up on the border of PA and NJ, and I’m always so dismayed to hear people knock on Jersey, especially if they’ve never been there. Sure, some cities and some parts of the state aren’t the most ideal, but every state is like that: there are prettier areas and not-so-pretty areas and so forth. Anyway, I’m happy to see here that Jersey is getting its due. The farmland is gorgeous, and I wish I could go on a long weekend drive and taste wine at all of these places.
This picture was too good for me not to share.
This is Chris Dobens, creator of the Boston Strong T shirt campaign, embracing his girlfriend,Emily Engelhardt, who was injured in last year’s marathon bombing, right before she crosses the finish line.
This picture is, in my opinion, one of the most important ones taken today.
This is one of the most powerful photos of modern history.
