wow I didn’t know fuckin chocolate eggs were gendered

OKAY LET ME TELL YOU A STORY ABOUT THE FUCKING PINK EGGS.
I work at a concession stand in an ice rink. We sell a bunch of chocolate bars and snacks and shit including Kinder Surprise eggs.
So one day this woman comes up to the counter with her two little kids, a girl who’s probably about 6 or 7 and a little boy, maybe 3 or 4. The mom asks what they want, the little girl points at the Kinder eggs and says “One of those!”. I asked if she wanted the white or the pink egg. She said pink. The little boy pointed to the Kinder eggs and says “One of those!”. I asked if he wanted the white or the pink egg. He said pink. HOLY SHIT IT WAS LIKE I OPENED THE GATES OF HELL. The mom absolutely FLIPPED and was like “YOU ARE NOT GETTING THE PINK EGG IT’S ONLY FOR GIRLS. YOU CAN GET THE WHITE ONE OR NOTHING AT ALL”. The little boy looked at his mom and said “But I want the same as ______ (whatever the sister’s name was)”. The mom completely ignored him and turned to me and gave me a death glare. “He can have the white egg.”
I had to give a little boy a white egg when he wanted the pink so that he could be the same as his big sister and he started crying. The mom just reiterated that the pink egg was for girls and told him that boys don’t cry.
And this is why we shouldn’t gender fucking chocolate eggs.

Free!EP 09 thoughts (pro swimmer haru, rin’s ties to it, rin’s light)

skania:

(^ that’s literally it. So much happened this episode, but I’m not even going to try touching what Haru went through because I’ve seen such gorgeous meta going around, everyone has already expressed my thoughts better than I could ever hope to. I also won’t bother explaining why I think Haru nor Rin did absolutely nothing wrong during their confrontation, because that’s another thing that has been wonderfully tackled on - like here for example).

What I’m going to do instead is write down my every thought about Haru-and-Rin and RinHaru without trying to be unbiased. Because there are some things I haven’t been able to put my finger on yet, so I may as well put on my shipper-hat and follow the proverbial rabbit down the hole lol

Wow okay some Free! stuff because I’ve seen a lot of people either blaming Haruka for his outburst or blaming Rin for “pushing his dream onto Haruka” and that’s…well, I have an issue with both of these interpretations.

if i as a retail worker have to work with a dozen cameras pointed at me to deter me from stealing $10, cops should have to work with a camera pointed at them to deter them from arbitrarily maiming and killing people

Scarlett Johansson is teaming up with Planned Parenthood.

The pregnant 29-year-old actress recently designed her own T-shirt for the Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s new line of celeb-designed shirts. The line of limited edition tees was commissioned by the organization’s Women Are Watching campaign, which educates and mobilizes young voters about women’s health issues and women’s rights. Johansson’s shirt features her signature on one of the sleeves in addition to a message to politicians about women’s rights to health care and birth control.

“When I heard that some politicians were cheering the Supreme Court’s decision to give bosses the right to interfere in our access to birth control, I thought I had woken up in another decade,” Johansson said in a statement. “Like many of my friends, I was appalled by the thought of men taking away women’s ability to make our own personal health care decisions. That’s when I knew I couldn’t sit on the sidelines and why I’m proud to support Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s Women are Watching campaign to ensure that young women know the high stakes for women’s health and rights this November.”

You can purchase the shirt here!
