As theofficial website states, it is “a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future” and in some countries it is a national holiday.
I’ve decided to seize the occasion and talk about something closely related to women – gender equality. It may also explain why we need a day to celebrate all the female figures worldwide.
Lately, we’ve been hearing these two words a lot. Let’s just go back to the latest Oscars ceremony: Patricia Arquette, winner of the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role inBoyhood, dedicated her speech to women and wage equality, gaining approval from the audience – including two enthusiastic and cheerful Jennifer Lopez and Meryl Streep.
But this isn’t enough. Many female celebrities are starting to stand out to support the cause, like Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj and Emma Watson with her HeForShe campaign (Emma, by the way, will host a conference in London on Sunday, 5 pm London time – you can see the livestream on Facebook here).
But why is this happening in 2015? Aren’t women fine with their positions, rights and conquers? Clearly, we’re not.
Going into detail would be impossible: there are many fields that can be discussed (wages, empowerment, jobs, maternity and paternity rights, LGBQT communities, feminism and so on).
Though, you can get a general idea of the situation by taking a look at the Gender Inequality Index, that reflects inequality in achievements between women and men by combining the data of reproductive health, empowerment and the labour market – it will show you that a small but tangible gap is still present almost everywhere.
But what does gender (in)equality really mean? Is it something abstract or people can experience it in their everyday life?
I’ve found two comics that explain this pretty well – and guess what? Gender equality is about men, too.
This was just a tiny example, but it makes you think about all those little things and prejudices that we (mostly unaware) apply to genders. We start from creating specific kind of toys for boys and girls to differentiating wages basing on what’s under someone’s underwear.
Sounds still unconvincing? Let’s move to Middle East and North Africa countries, for example. Here women are forced to submit to extreme gender-based discrimination: in certain cases they are forbidden to drive, have very limited rights when it comes to divorce and education, can be prevented from travelling, are victims of infanticides. And I won’t even start with the physical and sexual violence.
The sad thing is that gender inequality often mixes up with other kinds of discrimination, like racism or homo/transphobia. Fighting gender inequality means also fighting all those assumptions that prevent us from living in a world that puts each human being on the same level regardless of their sexuality, gender, skin color and so on. Sounds familiar? To me, this recallsbasic human rights.
This is really a complex topic as you can see, and it’s also quite delicate. Here are some useful sites you can visit if you want to know more:
I also want to leave you with a good food for thought, a quote I’ve found via thegirlthatcriedwolf. I hope it will make you all think!
Comments and thoughts are very welcome!
“I’m a man.
When I was born my grandfather congratulated my dad for having a son, and thanked my mother for giving my father a son. I got my grandfather’s name.
When I was a child, I could play with LEGO, because “Lego is a boy thing” and that helped my creativity. My ability to solve problems was stimulated. I got HotWheels car-washes and gas stations. I also got a box of plastic tools, to assemble and disassemble toy cars and trucks. That also stimulated my creativity and developed my logic capability, which is good for every child.
In my school day, the girls wore skirts and my friends lifted their skirts. It was a mess, So they were forbidden to wear skirts. I never saw a boy actually get punished for it though, after all “Boys are just like that. Took after his father this menace” – is what I usually heard.
At home, with my family, I liked to play house with a younger cousin. We were around eight. I was the dad, she was the mom and the dolls were our children. While playing, when i carried the dolls in my arms my mother would get mad: “Let go of that doll boy, that’s a girl thing”. And my little cousin’s father, when he saw us playing, wouldn’t let her do it either. He said boys play with boys and girls play with girls because “boys are very stupid, and worse, very forward”. I did not consider myself stupid, and did not understand what he meant by “forward”, but I still did as I was told.
At Christmas, my sister got a Barbie and I got a beyblade. She cried a bit because my toy was much cooler than hers, but every year my mother made the same mistake, and got her a doll, a toy stove, a toy fridge, a blender, everything pink, once mom got her an iron.
When I turned 15 and started dating, my father bought me some condoms
During my teenage years, no one criticized me for kissing lots of girls. Nowadays, that still stands. My father does not get mad at me when I don’t come home for the night, he does not say I need to be a “family boy”. He never slapped me in the face for thinking I’d spent the night at a motel.No one lectures me saying I need to be reserved and play hard to get.
No one judges me when I want to be with a girl and take initiative.
No one cares about my clothes; no one says I have to preserve myself.
No one says I have to preserve myself because “women only think about sex”. No one think my girlfriends were only with me for sex.
No one thinks that, when I have sex, that I’m submitting to the wishes of my partner. No one demonizes my orgasms. I was never judged for carrying condoms in my backpack or in my wallet. I never had to hide my condoms from my parents. I was never told to marry a virgin because I was a man.
I was never told that “men have to value themselves” or that I had to “give myself the respect”. Apparently, my gender already makes me worthy of respect.
When I go out into the streets no one tells me I’m “delicious”.
No unknown woman shouts “smoking hot” my way.
I can walk down the streets having an ice cream cone at ease, because I know I won’t hear things like “drop that and come suck me”. I can even walk down the streets eating a banana. I never had to cross a street, even though it was out of my way, to avoid a group of women in a bar, who will probably catcall me when I pass, embarrassing meI never had to walk in sweatpants, because my shorts leave my legs exposed, and that could be dangerous.
I never heard someone say I was “shameless” because I went out without a shirt. No one regulates my work out clothes.
No one cares about my clothes period.
I was never followed by a woman in a car when I was walking back homeI can catch a crowded subway everyday and surely no woman will rub against me, to record it and throw it on some porn website. No one ever had to create a subway wagon that was “just for men”.
I never heard of someone of my gender being raped by a crowd. I can get on a bus by myself in the middle of the night.
When I’m not carrying anything valuable, I no longer feel threatened, because I don’t fear getting raped at any moment, at every corner. That risk does not exist in the minds of the people of my gender.When I go out at night I can wear whatever clothes I want.
If I suffer any kind of violence, no one blames me for being drunk, or for wearing certain clothes.
If, one day, I was raped, no one would say it was my fault; that I was somewhere inadequate, that I had on a revealing outfit.
No one would try to justify the rape based on my behavior.
I would be treated as a VICTIM and that would be it.
No one thinks I’m vulgar because when it’s cold, my nipples show through my shirt. When I have sex with a woman on the first date I practically get a standing ovation. No one calls me a “tramp”, or “easy” or a “whore” because I have casual sex sometimes. 99% of porn websites are made to please me and men in general. No one is shocked when I say I watch porn. No one judges me if I say I love sex. No one cares if I read erotic literature.
No one is surprised to hear I masturbate. No mother-in-law will tell her daughter not to marry me because I’m not a virgin.
No one criticizes me for investing in my career. When I have the same job position as a woman, my salary is never inferior to hers. If I am promoted, no one says it’s because I slept with my boss. People believe in my merit.
If I have to travel for work and leave my kids with their mother for a few days no one calls me irresponsible. No one finds it strange that, at thirty years old, I still don’t have kids.
No one guesses my sexual orientation based on the length of my hair.
When my hair starts to grey, people will find it sexy, not think I’m letting go of myself.
Society does not see my virginity as a prize. 90% of military services are destined to people of my gender, even the higher jobs, in which the official only deals with paperwork and management.
If I go out with a certain outfit no one says I’m “asking for it”. If I’m at club and a woman performs oral sex on me, I’m not the “whore” or the “tramp”, she is.
If a video of me having sex with a woman gets leaked, no one will call me names, criticize me, stone me. I won’t be the “disgusting little bitch” I won’t be “trash” or “used” or “cheap”. I’d just be the man, fulfilling my alpha guy position in society.
If I lead a promiscuous lifestyle and then fall in love with just one woman, people think its beautiful. No one judges me based on my past.
No one says it’s disgusting if I don’t shave myself. No one would judge me for being a single dad. On the contrary, I’d be seen as a hero. I’ll never be stopped from occupying a higher position in the Catholic Church for being a man.
I was never beaten up for being a man.
I was never obligated to do housework for being a man.
I never had the obligation to learn how to cook for being a man.
No one tells me my place is in the kitchen for being a man. No one says I can’t curse for being a man.
No one says I can’t drink for being a man. No one stares at my plate if I put a lot of food in it. No one justifies my foul mood by blaming it on hormones.
No one has ever made jokes that undermined my intelligence for being a man. When I sometimes mess up in traffic no one says “It had to be a man”. When I’m polite to a woman she doesn’t automatically assume I’m hitting on her. The term “tramp stamp” did not come into existence because men were seen as cheap. No one treats my body as just a tool for giving pleasure to the opposite sex.
No one thinks I’ll have to be submissive to a future wife. I was never judged for drinking beer at table in which I was the only man. I’m never the target audience for house cleaning products ads.
I’m the target audience for beer ads. No one’s ever asked me if my girlfriend lets me cut my hair. I cut it when I want to and people understand that.There isn’t haze at USP (a university) that promotes my humiliation and objectification. Society doesn’t split my gender in “to marry” and “to whore”.
When I say “no” no one thinks I’m just playing hard to get. No is no .I don’t have to dress a certain way to avoid having women falling into temptation. People of my gender were not raped each 40 minutes in São Paulo last year.
People of my gender don’t get raped every 12 seconds in Brazil.
People of my gender didn’t get raped by a crowd during protests in Egypt.
I’m not a man. But if you are, it’s fundamental to admit that society AS A WHOLE needs feminism.
Don’t underestimate suffering that you don’t understand.”
It’s not worth the regret. Either by yourself if you failed or just simply left scars, or the regret everyone else feels by not doing enough to help you.
It does get better. Believe it or not it will eventually get better. Sometimes you have to go through the storm to get to the rainbow.
There’s so much you would miss out on doing.
There is always a reason to live. It might not be clear right now, but it is always there.
So many people care, and it would hurt them if you hurt yourself.
You ARE worth it. Don’t let anyone, especially yourself, tell you otherwise.
You are amazing.
A time will come, once you’ve battled the toughest times of your life and are in ease once again, where you will be so glad that you decided to keep on living. You will emerge stronger from this all, and won’t regret your choice to carry on with life. Because things always get better.
What about all the things you’ve always wanted to do? What about the things you’ve planned, but never got around to doing? You can’t do them when you’re dead.
I love you. Even if only one person loves you, that’s still a reason to stay alive.
You won’t be able to listen to music if you die.
Killing yourself is never worth it. You’ll hurt both yourself and all the people you care about.
There are so many people that would miss you, including me.
You’re preventing a future generation, YOUR KIDS, from even being born.
How do you think your family would feel? Would it improve their lives if you died?

You will be missing out on every single wonderful thing yet to happen to you.
If you’ve ever been convinced by a salesperson that you truly wanted a product, done something too instinctively, or made choices that seemed entirely out of character, then you’ve had an idea planted in your mind. Here’s how it’s done.
If you’ve seen the film Inception, you might think that planting an idea in someone’s mind is a difficult thing to do. It’s not. It’s ridiculously easy and it’s tough to avoid. We’re going to take a look at some of the ways it can work.
Note: We’ve gotten a lot of emails about how to do this in specific situations. Although some of those situations have been legitimate, this post was written to teach you to detect these tactics or use them for positive reasons, rather than use them on others for selfish or nefarious purposes. If you want a good way to convince people to do what you want that doesn’t involve the dark side of manipulation, read this and this.
Reverse Psychology Actually Works
Reverse psychology has become an enormous cliché. I think this peaked in 1995 with the release of the film Jumanji. (If you’ve seen it and remember it, you know what I’m talking about.) The problem is that most people look at reverse psychology in a very simple way. For example, you’d say “I don’t care if you want to go risk your life jumping out of a plane” to try and convince someone not to go skydiving. This isn’t reverse psychology—it’s passive-aggressive. So let’s leave that all behind and start from scratch.
If you’re going to use logic reversals in your favor, you need to be subtle. Let’s say you want your roommate to do the dishes because it’s his or her turn. There’s always this approach:
“Hey, would you mind doing the dishes? It’s your turn.”
But in this example we’re assuming your roommate is lazy and the nice approach isn’t going to get the job done. So what do you do? Something like this:
“Hey, I’ve decided I don’t want to do the dishes anymore and am just going to start buying disposable stuff. Is that cool with you? If you want to give me some money, I can pick up extras for you, too.”
What this does is present the crappy alternative to not doing the dishes without placing any blame. Rather than being preoccupied with an accusation, your roommate is left to only consider the alternative. This is how reverse psychology can be effective, so long as you say it like you mean it.
Never Talk About the Idea—Talk Around It
Getting someone to want to do something can be tough if you know they’re not going to want to do it, so you need to make them believe it was their idea. This is a common instruction, especially for salespeople, but it’s much easier said than done. You have to look at planting ideas in the same way you’d look at solving a mystery. Slowly but surely you offer the target a series of clues until the obvious conclusion is the one you want. The key is to be patient, because if you rush through your “clues” it will be obvious. If you take it slow, the idea will form naturally in their mind all by itself.
Let’s say you’re trying to get your friend to eat healthier food. This is a good aim, but you’ve got a tough enemy: they’re addicted to the Colonel and need a bucket of fried chicken at least once a day. Out of concern you tell them to eat healthier. They either think that’s a good idea and then never do anything or just tell you to stop nagging them. For them to realize what they’re doing to their body, they need to have an epiphany and you can make that happen by talking around the issue.
To do this you need to be very clever and very subtle, otherwise it will be obvious. You can’t just say “oh, I read today that fried chicken is killing 10 million children in Arkansas every year” because that’s a load of crap and comes with an incredibly obvious motivation for saying it.
If chicken is the target, you need to make chicken seem really unappealing. Next time you sneeze, make a joke about coming down with the avian flu. When you’re ordering at a restaurant together, verbally convey your decision to order something other than chicken because you just learned how most chicken is processed by restaurants. When you’ve done enough of these things—and, again, with enough space between them so that it doesn’t seem like odd behavior—you can start being a little more aggressive and stop going with your friend to get fried chicken. You can also take proactive steps to improve your own health and tell your friend 1) what you’re doing, and 2) how well it’s working for you. After a few weeks, if your friend hasn’t decided to reconsider his or her position on frequent fried chicken, you can casually mention it and they should be much more open to having a real discussion.
Underselling is probably one of the easiest and most effective ways to plant an idea in someone’s mind. This is another version of reverse psychology but at a less aggressive level. Let’s say you’re trying to sell someone a hard drive. They could buy a 250GB, 500GB, or 1TB hard drive. You want to sell the largest hard drive possible because those cost more and mean more money for you. Your buyer is coming in with the idea that they want to spend the least money possible. You’re not going to get very far by telling them they should spend more money when you know they don’t want to. Instead, you need to cater to what they want: the cheap option. Here’s a sample dialogue:
Buyer: Can you tell me about this 250GB hard drive? I want to make sure it will work for me.
You: What kind of computer do you have and what do you want to use it for?
Buyer: I have a 2-year old Windows laptop and I need it to store my photos. I have about 30GB of photos.
You: 250GB is definitely more than enough for just storing your photos, so as long as you don’t have many more files you might want to put onto the drive it should be just fine for your needs.
This last sentence instills doubt in the buyer. You could even add “you’d only need a larger drive if you wanted to be absolutely sure you’ll have enough space in the future” but that might be pushing it a little bit. The point is, if you appear to have their best interests at heart it can be easy to make them think they want to buy more from you.
Again, I’d like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that planting ideas in the minds of others is not necessarily a nice thing to do. Use this information to detect when someone’s doing it to you and not necessarily as a guide to do it to somebody else for evil reasons.
Snapchat‘s latest update brings a number of impressive improvements to the popular photo-sharing app we all know and love.
From convenient shortcuts to new tools for creating snap masterpieces, many of the app’s best features are difficult to find. Well, you can end your search now, because we’re covering the ins and outs of navigating Snapchat’s hidden features, which will help transform your snap into a work of art.
Whether you’re a Snapchat newbie or power user, you can step up your snap game by learning how to unlock these tips, tricks and secrets.
1. Activate cool features in your settings.
First, make sure you have an up-to-date version of Snapchat downloaded on your device. To download the latest version of the app, visit the Google Play or iTunes store.
Once the app is updated, open it up. Tap the gear icon in the top-right corner of your feed, and then tap “Manage” under “Additional Services.”
In this section, you can enable bonus features such as filters, front-facing flash, replay and special text, and also choose the number of best friends you want displayed on your “Send To” screen.
2. Use special text.
Typing captions on top of snaps is great, but what if you want to overlay your snap with larger text and emoji? This is when the special text feature, an alternative caption style, comes in handy.
Tap the letter “T” next to the pencil icon in the top-right corner of your snap draft. The characters you type will now be magnified.
3. Draw with secret colors.
Doodling on your snap is one of the app’s most popular features. We all know you can pick a color by sliding the rainbow color bar. But what you may not know is that you don’t have to limit yourself to the color palette on the rainbow slider. Check out the next steps to find out how to draw with secret crayon colors.
Draw in the color white.
Draw with a white crayon by touching the rainbow color slider and dragging your finger to the top-left corner. Android users already have the white crayon built into their rainbow slider.
Draw in the color black.
Similarly, you can draw with a black crayon by touching the rainbow color slider and dragging your finger to the bottom. Android users already have the black crayon built into their rainbow slider.
Draw in hidden colors.
You’ll notice when you drag your finger from the rainbow slider to the left or to the bottom of the snap, you’ll be able to use a bunch of in-between colors that aren’t available on the palette.
Draw with a transparent color (only on Android devices).
If you have an Android device, you’re in luck. Snapchatters using Androids can draw with a see-through color. Press down on the rainbow slider until the full color palette appears, and then select the transparent color.
4. Add fun filters.
Snapchat’s latest upgrade allows you to add Instagram-like filters, art and other data labels to your snap. Just swipe your finger left or right to preview each filter. Here’s a rundown of all the filters offered.
Based on your location, you can overlay art and other labels on your snap. For example, if you’re in New York City’s Flatiron District, you can add art like the one below.
Use the time filter to display what time you took your snap.
If you want to display what the temperature was when you captured the snap, use this filter. You can tap the temperature to change it from Fahrenheit to Celsius.
This filter captures the speed at which you’re moving when you take the snap. However, the feature can be a bit buggy, and doesn’t always work.
Black and white, saturated and sepia filters
The old version of Snapchat used to have codes for three secret filters. But the latest version of Snapchat makes it easy to find them, and the codes don’t work anymore. Continue to swipe your finger left or right to preview these filters.
5. Front-facing flash
Want to take a selfie but the lighting is too dark? No worries. Snapchat has a front-facing flash feature that will white out your screen, brightening your photo. Simply turn on the flash by tapping the lightning icon in the top-left corner.
6. Change rear-facing camera to front-facing camera
Here’s a shortcut for those who love snapping selfies. Instead of tapping the camera icon in the top-right corner of the screen to switch the camera view, just tap the screen twice. It will automatically switch from the rear-facing camera to the front-facing camera, and vice versa.
7. Replay a snap.
The replay feature allows you to replay a snap that was sent to you within the past 24 hours. Keep in mind, however, that it will only allow you to replay the snap you last viewed. To replay, simply tap on the snap you want to view again, and a notification like the one below will pop up. Tap “Replay.”
8. Tap to go through Stories.
Sometimes you may want to fast-forward through certain Stories. Instead of waiting for the next snap to appear in a Story, you can tap the screen (while pressing down to view the Story), and it will take you to the next snap.
9. Change the number of ‘best friends’ displayed.
By default, Snapchat displays three friends you most interact with the most on the “Send To” screen. According to Snapchat, these friends are selected automatically by the app’s friendship algorithm.
If you want to change the number of friends shown, go to your settings (see the first step on this list). Tap on “# of Best Friends,” and you can choose to display three, five or seven friends.
If you have additional questions about Snapchat, visit the app’s support page.
Throughout this year i have learned a lot. I have learned that your true friends will go thru hell for you. That pulling someones hair can get you arrested. friends will turn on you. taylor swift isn’t as crazy as miley cyrus. this world is a fucked up place. but all the fucked up things that happen some how bring every one together. friends become lovers. jail is nothing like orange is the new black. there are still immature fucks who still act like they are in high school. hard work pays off. friends become enemy’s. space is needed. growing up is hard. recovering is possible. staying strong is a struggle. falling in love the second time is better than the first.
I am ending this year with some lost friendships, but have gained new ones who i cant wait to see what the future holds.
