So I got a detention today.
Which is kinda dumb because I’m (mostly) a model student, you know? And get this - Heres what Im in for: I said…*whispers* a swear word in class. 60 minutes of punishment for the phrase: “That’s really shitty.”
So this is how it went down: I’m sitting in math class last hour before break and my teacher hands me a little slip saying that i gotta go see the vice principal. And im thinking, “damn, i thought she forgot about that.” The horrible cuss word was uttered a few days beforehand and, well, i figured she didnt even remember. I walk down there (in my full-body cat kigurumi btw) and mrs. Whatever isnt there. So i mull around and steal a candy cane off the offices mini fake tree (Im already in trouble anyways so gotta go big or go home) until finally, i talk to the desk lady who calls the vice principal down. We walk into the room and start to have a chat about how our high school doesnt tolerate swears bluh bluh etc and that i should find alternatives to cussing. Thats where this picture comes in. This lady just fucking WHIPS this goddamn list out of nowhere and shows it to me in a completely serious manner. “Heres some examples of words you can use when you want to swear.” W H A T.
Goof nugget? Sweet onions? Shooby Darn??? Pokemon??????
And here she is in all seriousness and im trying not to laugh while asking if i can have a photocopy because this is actual comedic GOLD. This sort of phooey doesnt actually happen in real life, right? I mean holy snappin turtles what the frog is this Skikaka? Jumpin Jiminy, Public school is bogus!

what the William Shatner is going on here?!

I approve of these so hard

Son of a monkey, I’m saving the heck out of these. :D

Let’s see feminists push for female inclusion to the draft.

1. “Women and Children first” was not and is not a widely practiced poicy
2. Most feminists, myself included, want to completely abolish the draft and selected service. 

The idea of “women and children first” wasn’t invented by women - it was invented by men 

Just another part of the patriarchy, I suppose? How dare those men try to stop us from drowning

First of all, it was never even a thing. Women and Children First was not ever a widely used practice for evacuating ships. 
In fact, let’s look at some actual facts: While the phrase first appeared in the 1860 novel Harrington: A Story of True Love, by William Douglas O’Connor. [source]
 As a code of conduct, “women and children first” has no basis in maritime law, and according to University of Greenwich disaster evacuation expert Professor Ed Galea, in modern-day evacuations people will usually “help the most vulnerable to leave the scene first. It’s not necessarily women, but is likely to be the injured, elderly and young children.”
 Furthermore, the results of a 2012 Uppsala University study suggest that the application of “women and children first” may have, in practice, been the exception rather than the rule.
And here, read up on the differences between hostile and benevolent sexism.

And really. Is this the best yall have? Your best example of sexism against men is a myth about women getting preferential seating in maritime disasters?

I put all my dumb superheroes-as-Upworthy-headlines tweets into one place, and added a few new ones, too.
Such a fun form to play with. I honestly think I could do this for the rest of my life.

The Upworthy parody headlines just keep getting better. :-)
