NOOOO NO NO NONO FUCK FUCK  FUCKIG CBS IS TELLING WOMEN NOT TO REPORT SEXUAL HARASSMENT BECAUSE IT WILL “DAMAGE THEIR CAREERS” and “HARASSMENT IS AN UNFORTUNATE PART OF CLIMBING THE LADDER” I AM SO ANGRY THEY ARE LITERALLY TURNING SEXUAL HARASSMENT INTO A NORM THIS IS NOT OKAY

This is an actual article and I’m still having a hard time believing it’s real.

"The bottom line for a woman, though, is that if you want to have a career of increasing power, you are going to have to keep quiet about the harassment"

"you will have to put up with it as a form of cultural diversity"

"Harassment is often something the guy doesn’t even notice"

Did you know that Easter was based off of the German pagan religious holiday of 4/20, where observers ingest the fumes released after burning a plant in a complex bonding ritual?
Really makes you think…

Steve Jobs had his first amazing and innovative idea in his parents’ back yard.

He was bouncing a tennis ball off of the brick wall of the house, when the thought struck him. He reached for his notepad and jotted down, “take money and credit for the work of others,” and the rest, as they say, is history.

i mean, on one hand, my dad doesn’t know my birthday and never has and my mom either forgot for the last 4 years or decided not to acknowledge it

and i spent pretty much none of my early childhood with either of them, I’ve got 2 memories of time spent with my parents before age 9. this is due to day care, private school, a nanny, ballet class, gymnastics class, soccer, and swimming lessons. one summer at ymca swim camp I got sick and my mom thought I was faking it to get out of swimming. finally she broke down and took me to the doctor to do the whole “see, the doctor says your fine so stop complaining” type thing. I still remember the doctor examining me. it turned out I had a bad case of pneumonia. after the hospital, I was too sick to leave the house the whole summer, which at the time felt like an eternity. 

but on the other hand, it was only because I’m insanely privileged that they could afford all those things, which I don’t doubt lots of kids would kill for (I hate all sports but I’m a spoiled brat), so, I’m kind of complaining about nothing. compared to other people I know, my parents look like Glinda the Good Witch. 

I’m like the physical embodiment of affluenza/ whiny rich kid syndrome.

Triclosan, an antimicrobial agent found in common household soaps, shampoos and toothpastes may be finding its way inside human noses where it promotes the colonization of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria and could predispose some people to infection. The research published in mBIO indicates that S. aureus grown in the presence of triclosan was better able to attach to human proteins, and that rats exposed to triclosan were more susceptible to S. aureus nasal colonization. The researchers urge re-evaluation of the use of triclosan in our personal care products and are also looking to determine if triclosan is influencing microbial colonization at additional human body sites.Read more: http://bit.ly/1g4hQr8Publication: Triclosan Promotes Staphylococcus aureus Nasal Colonization. mBio, 2014; DOI: 10.1128/mBio.01015-13

Scientists have been saying for 20 years now that anti-bacterial resistance has become a serious threat. So obviously the best thing for us all to do is put antibiotics in literally everything. The FDA has finally done a review of the use of triclosan in this stuff, and unsurprisingly they found it wasn’t helpful, but are giving companies 1 year to provide evidence of their usefulness, because the FDA is a joke.

Not to mention, I used to use this stuff but after research on how it soaks into your skin and can cause a myriad of health issues (including infertility) I stopped using it.

:/ I don’t think that’s true. I don’t think that triclosan is super dangerous-I’m not a conspiracy theorist, I just don’t think it helps kill bacteria anymore and now some bacteria are resistant to this and similar antibiotics. Outside of that, it is safe. I regret this post.
