They are all okay, and all those things could exist in the same woman. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people.
Will: Carlton, carlton, I understand that you’re scared, man, but the world can be a scary place. Just got to learn to deal with it.
Carlton: Yeah, well, I found my way.
Will: That’s not you, man. that’s them.
^ i remember this episode i cried while watching this
Me too. 😢
This episode had me in tears, man. Like, you really knew the characters were growing from this. I loved how it was comedy and still touched on issues that affected Black youth. We need more shows like this on television.
You gotta think, the whole concept of this show was Will growing up in a bad neighborhood where shit like this happened all the time, and Carlton grew up in a life of privilege and sheltered from this kind of life, and I think Will was crying because he came so close to seeing Carlton go down the wrong path and end up like some of his friends back in Philly.
Damnit, y’all… Damn.
But ya’ll be like Will can’t act.

First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt in the pages of the L.A. Times shortly after her husband’s inauguration, courtesy of our history Tumblr.
Eleanor Roosevelt, then the brand-new first lady, walked to church by herself, “shattering another precedent,” on March 12, 1933. This item was published in the L.A. Times the following day. (Her husband had just been sworn in earlier that month, on March 4.)
More from our archives: Here’s Mrs. Roosevelt five years later, during a tour of government relief activities in L.A., and back in L.A. for the 1960 Democratic National Convention in 1960.
cambridge university students were asked on campus why they needed feminism. here are 60 answers. click the link for over about 600 more.
I’m crying, this is the most beautiful thing I’ve seen all week
Reblogging AGAIN because just last week my brother ‘liked’ a picture on fb in which a woman explained why she does NOT need feminism. Her reasons included (among others) “I make my own decisions and I’m in charge of my body and I don’t nee ‘epowering’” … “I like men and refuse to demonise them” …
I just couldn’t get over the extreme ignorance and stupidity of this woman and, the fact that my own brother liked it lets me know he TOO is ignorant to the true nature of real feminism and has been on the receiving end of man-hating extremists.
So yeah, reblogging because it STILL needs to be seen and heard.

1929: "Double gas explosion in Munhall"
When the first gas line exploded, Anna Fincisky thought it was just another noisy blast from the nearby steel mill in Homestead.
Fincisky was a store clerk working next to the post office in Munhall on Thursday, Dec. 5, 1929, when a faulty gas line exploded and killed six people. More than 50 others were injured; four of them were in “precarious condition,” including the assistant postmaster and the conductor of a street car that was passing by when the explosion happened.
The aftermath resembled “the sweepings of a carpenter’s shop,” with jagged pieces of wood, metal and glass filling a block on Eighth Avenue. Scores of volunteers went to the streets to help comb through the wreckage.
The explosion caused more than superficial damage. Other portions of the gas line were damaged by the blast, including one that had been patched.
Less than 24 hours later, a line under the Star Drug Store blew when a plumber — investigating the source of the first blast — lit a lamp in the shop’s basement.
Four more injuries resulted.
Equitable Gas Co. owned the problematic lines (and the gas tanks in the 1927 explosion on the city’s North Side). After the second explosion, the coroner ordered all lines in Eighth Avenue’s vicinity to be turned off. Equitable announced the entire main would be replaced.
The town was on edge after the double blast.
After the tragedy, loud pops like tire blasts were cause for frequent calls to the Munhall police department, officers had to reassure residents that things were under control by Friday afternoon.
In the Post-Gazette’s photo archive, there are about a dozen photos from that terrible week in Munhall’s history, including small headshots. These are presumably those of the injured or deceased, it’s hard to tell though: none of them are labeled.
