That last sentence.
Hit me like a ton of bricks.
Oh my god.
Jesus Christ. I hope these are legit because some of these are raising FABULOUS questions.
you know, my mom told me that when i was little i used to tell her recurring tidbits of a linear series of events from “when i was older”
she mentioned me pointing an old man and getting really excited and saying “hey that man was my student when i used to teach piano!” in a situation, or saying “you know i like you more than my other mom, she was so mean” and my personal favourite is the one where i said “i used to have a gilrfriend once, you know, we were on my motorcyle and i lost control and fell off a cliff on the roadside, i really hope she’s okay”
Children are scary as fuck.
I need to stay away
Wasn’t there a post going around about how maybe the ‘Light at the end of the Tunnel’ that people go to when they die is the opening of the womb when we’re born? And we gradually forget our previous lives as we grow older? Because that post combined with this post scares the living crap outta me.
I’m in the library and I can’t stop laughing out loud at these
As a kid I constantly had these thoughts about the end of the world & living through it. It wasn’t like it was a past life, but a future life that I somehow knew I was going to live through and somehow the child me could feel what future me was feeling? It was fucked. I chalk it up to crazy imaginations but yeah I dunno. Buhh.
Why I hate going on Facebook.
WTF… this is why I am so ashamed of humanity sometimes…. & THESE IGNORANT MEN… need to get their dick chopped off. Sorry for the vulgar language but this makes me sick. The only causes of rape is because of RAPISTS, period.
"Dress like ladys weman”
An obvious typo of Gladys Weman, inventor of MacePants
Holy Jesus Fucking Christ.
"Number one cause of rape is women not doing as they’re told"
"Rape is such a dirty word, I prefer snuggle struggle."
What in the god damn hell.
"Ringo isn’t even the best drummer in the Beatles"
I AM FUCKING DYING
I really like this because
1) The Beatles are amazing forever and always
2) The first question reminds me of something Aaron would say, because he annoyingly answers “yes” every time you ask him non yes-or-no questions.
3) Poor Ringo.
"This is why you can’t trust women! They’re so good at makeup and wear it to fool guys into thinking they’re hot!"
shit. girls he’s on to us *washes off makeup to reveal lizard face and climbs up a wall* we will return with a new disguise. soon the power of earthly men will fall
Today I share my love of my IUD! It’s worked out incredibly well for me, and I am a huge fan. Of course, just like with EVERY form of birth control out there, it is not right for everyone universally. So today’s strip lays out the pros versus the cons and shares some of the experiences you can expect if you decide to go this route.
But, I will say, if you can’t handle having hormonal birth control (like meeeee), oh man, this is a godsend.
Like Erika, I have a copper IUD! I got this baby about three years ago, and let me tell you - it changed my (sex) life. Being on the pill made me crazy and unstable; it was also expensive, as I have no health insurance. I took a risk on the IUD after a recommendation from a friend and plenty of assurance from the nurses at the sexual health clinic, and I adore it. I have had all kinds of sex in the last couple years (but y’know, mostly only in long-term monogamous relationships where everyone was healthy) and look at me, ma - still not pregnant!
Is it right for everyone? No, of course not. It is painful to have inserted, and it can be expensive, but I got mine for about $70. Canada, right? Seriously, $70 to not get pregnant for UP TO TEN YEARS. Does it make periods worse? Yes, kind of, especially at first. But for me, the pros FAR outweigh the cons!
Click through to Erika’s comic for much more information!
I was lucky enough that I basically didn’t feel anything but a slight pinch when I got the copper IUD, but I know it’s been painful for some friends of mine. I guess compared to the surgeries I’ve had to have before, it didn’t really seem that bad (what up cervical biopsies and laser therapy!) and I seem to have a high enough pain tolerance (hour and a half foot tattoo? Hardly even felt it) so personally pain wasn’t much of an issue, but it likely depends on your pain tolerance so it might not be that bad for you, either. And really, it’s only a few short seconds of pain and then you don’t have to deal with it again for 5-10 years. I do hear taking some advil beforehand can really help, though, if you’re worried about the pain.
Anyway, hormonal birth control really didn’t do me any favours - either I was a total emotional mess, or I was constantly nauseous with headaches. So the copper IUD has been a god send, and is really great if you’re the type of person who has a hard time taking oral birth control regularly.
It should be mentioned, though, that if you use a Diva Cup, you can’t use it with the IUD because the suction can cause the IUD to dislodge, which is y’know, not good.
And like Kate mentioned, it’s wicked cheap in Canada - mine was $60, I think, so it’s definitely a really great option, financially.
If you’re interested, go see your doctor or visit your local sexual health centre - I can’t say enough good things about the Halifax Sexual Health Centre so go see them if you’re in HRM. They’ve always been incredibly helpful, caring, understanding, and non judgemental and make you feel really comfortable, which is pretty important when you’ve got your pants off.
GUYS GUYS GUYS!
While I’m in Bruges I’m going to an ice sculpture festival based on Frozen and these are a few pictures from it and omggggg.
I got these immediately. I feel good about that.
this is the only frozen-related gifset you’ll ever need
I thought I saw that dance somewhere before.
Me too me too! I’m really glad it’s a thing and not just hopeful projection on my part.
Also, I really liked Frozen.
This one time I wrote a song called Hate Fuck and now it’s in a movie about a girl having an affair with her English teacher. #perfect #awesome #mollymaxwell
