It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.
Yeah watashi am curious about that too.
"You’re so shy, you should open up more!"
jESUS H FUCK
William looks like he’s thinking, “Geez, son, settle down!” in the first gif! Haha
How awesome does this sound though. You get infinite money and once a week you get to take a child to a candy store or toys or us or somewhere they love and buy them as much they want this would be fun given the kid wasn’t a brat.
There is no downside to this at all
"can you buy me disney world?’
"fuck yeah buddy"
The only person who can pull me down is myself, and I’m not going to let myself pull me down anymore.
unless your teachers are abusive assholes there is no fucking reason to disrespect them
they are literally trying their hardest to get you an education
teachers have every right to complain about rude students or the amount of papers they have to grade because their salary is low as shit
oh wow, your math teacher yelled at you because you were ignoring the lesson and talking to your friend
i wonder why
jesus christ teachers have it hard enough dont be an asshole
That grandma took none of the shit.
Would you like to stay for dinner?
WOULD YOU LIKE TO STAY FOREVER?
SIGN ME UP FOR THE NEXT WAR!
One lives in the hope of becoming a memory.
I have a few copies of “Playboy” from the 1970s stashed away somewhere. One of them has a letter where a guy writes in saying, “I met this really gorgeous, sweet woman, and we were planning to get married, but she sat me down yesterday and told me that she had a sex change before she met me. Mr. Hefner, should I marry someone who used to be a man?” and the response was, “So she had a sex change, big whoop. Would you be asking this question if she’d made any other change in her life before she met you? You love the woman she is now, and that’s all that should matter. If you want kids you can adopt or something.”
I feel so conflicted right now
Do you guys SERIOUSLY not know that Hugh Hefner is super respectful of women and doesn’t play around with peoples misogynistic bullshit?
just because you want to be surrounded by hot ladies 24/7 doesn’t mean you’re a douchebag
not being a douchebag is the best way to be surrounded by hot ladies 24/7
I used to watch his reality show and was consistently impressed by how gentlemanly and respectful Hugh Hefner is. That said, I still feel Playboy as a publication and brand is deeply problematic for our society. I have a problem wrapping my head around the dual messages of “here’s how to be a decent gentleman and treat your lady right” and “look at all these manipulated images of women as objects for your pleasure”. And there’s no arguing the impact this objectification has had on society—girls keep getting slammed with the message that they are sex objects, their bodies reduced to parts. Boys are inundated with messages telling them if a woman is flawed in any way, she is unworthy of attention.
It really is a shame that Mr. Hefner couldn’t publish Playboy without the porn.
Yes mass media is overflowing with objectification and over sexualized images of women not only of unattainable and unrealistic standards of beauty but also as just eye candy and sexual outlets for men, this is obviously wrong.
BUT we should keep in mind an important factor.
When it comes to things such as the porn industry, including Playboy, these women have a right to their profession. They choose to use their sexuality to their advantage and to their delight and it is their right to do so. Sex is sex it is not hiding as something that it isn’t. This is very different than mass media shoving their oversexualized ads and media objectification down the throats of anyone who will see. The porn industry is it’s own monster that many of its stars have fought for the equality, safety and positive portrayals of its actors. They have also fought for their rights to be in their profession and to be respected for their individual choices, as anyone has the right to.
As in any industry there are companies and individuals who are in the horrifying business of dehumanizing its actors, especially women but many are working to change this. Just as many are fighting for the change in mass media.
In the case of Playboy it has been an argument that it is not a feminist publication and it is fine if you feel that way but it has done much good for the feminist community through a media geared towards men. Not only has it spoken out for women’s rights but supported it. Also you need to understand that these models and women who work for Playboy maintain their rights to their image and their bodies. They choose how and what they show or do and they choose what they want to change and not change on their bodies. A bit more diversity in body types would be very nice though. I think many women feel that way.
Another point to state is that many women who have been a part of the Playboy franchise as well as other pornographic media have happily used it as a launching point for their careers as well as a means to better themselves. Hugh Hefner has also always made a point of showing these women as strong independent individuals and has since the launching of Playboy. He has written and spoken out on how women are more than just their parts as well as shown how he treats them as individuals with minds and opinions and that they have a right to express them and be respected for them.
This man is surrounded by women BECAUSE he treats them with respect. They choose to be around him, They choose to be in that industry and that is their right.
Here you have a man who has created a company that gives you these images of women owning their sexuality and also lets you know that these women are strong and independent. Showing that not only can a person be pleasing but that they are also human beings and they deserve respect. Trying to teach men that in order for a woman to be comfortable enough to share herself with you you have to treat her well and understand her. The reason playboy has bios of these women, articles and advice is so that these women are not just images but so that they are people.
Yes this man makes a profit from women empowering themselves and owning their sexuality but so are these women. Nevermind the women who are behind the scenes, even his own daughter.
I’m sorry to me that is not problematic or objectification that is empowerment.
