Men, I would like to give this opportunity to extend your formal invitation. Gender equality is your issue, too. To date, I’ve seen my father’s role as a parent being valued less by society. I’ve seen young men suffering from illness, unable to ask for help for fear it will make them less of a man. I’ve seen men fragile and insecure by what constitutes male success. Men don’t have the benefits of equality, either. We don’t want to talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that they are. When they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence. If men don’t have to be aggressive, women won’t be compelled to be submissive. If men don’t need to control, women won’t have to be controlled. Both men and women should feel free to be strong. It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals. We should stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by who we are. We can all be freer and this is what HeForShe is about. It’s about freedom. I want men to take up this mantle so their daughters, sisters and mothers can be free from prejudice but also so their sons have permission to be vulnerable and human, too and in doing so, be a more true and complete version of themselves - Emma Watson for HeForShe UN campaign

Anonymous said: What's a typical day like in the life of George?

busy, at the moment. if it’s thursday or friday i’m up at the crack of dawn and i head into town to bFM where I do news shifts, and i’ll go to uni from there. on other days i’ll wake up, probably have slept in and will be at least 20 minutes late for my first class. I drive to the park and ride which is about 10 minutes away and jump on a bus to central akl and then i’ll rush to uni. Will always buy a coffee and/or some fewd between classes. Love me a $5 kebab deal or some sushi or a slice of sal’s pizza. then i’ll bus home and will neglect homework, or i’ll have work till like 11pm. stay up on internet till like 1am probably.

If you’re mad at Joan Rivers because she brushed off Palestinian civilian deaths, and then happy because she died, then you’re literally sinking to the same level that you’re condemning
