Ugh. Kids these days. With their taste in things that’s different than my taste in things was when I was their age due to the ever-evolving media landscape and constantly growing range of options and things that have nothing to do with their intelligence or anything going down hill. Get off my lawn.

Money can buy

ragingpeacock:

  • Independence and safety (not having to rely on abusive ppl, getting to control how you spend your time and money)
  • Experiences (travel, events, vacations, entertainment)
  • Health (medical care duh, good food, good location, reduced stress)
  • Opportunity (car, being able to move, having a safety net, “looking professional”)
  • Confidence (clothes that make you look good, things that make you feel good)

iunno that seems a lot like happiness

why iphones gotta take two million years to turn back on after they die like you plug em in and you’re all ready to start texting again but they’re like “nope. i gotta take some time for myself. figure out who i am. you hurt me too much the last time. let me think.”

Who’s Alex?
Billboard demonstrating gender stereotypes as most people automatically assume that Alex is the boy.

kick ass

fUCK

Oh come on.
I get the point but it’s logical to assume that Alex is the boy because he’s placed right under the word Alex, his pose takes up more space in the photograph than the girl, the way he’s holding up his arm gives more of a “look at me” vibe than the girl who’s leaning to the side, and he’s in the center of the billboard next to the descriptive text.
If they switched poses and positions you’d likely assume the girl is Alex instead. This isn’t proof of how sexist the viewer is, it’s photography and graphic design making you think the boy is the focus because it makes more sense. The message behind the billboard would be way more truthful if they didn’t just use this easy trick.
