You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment. People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously. Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life. Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day! So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!! Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions. Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it. With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!
We are right here!!
Hehe equality right?
Do you not understand the purpose of this, or why the prices are what they are? Does this need to be explained to you?
Oh yea right, the famous “wage gap” between men and women that has been debunked tons of times! That sure is the right argument to fight sexism with!
Not debunked, misrepresented, as it is a complicated issue. It’s honestly more accurate to call it a PAY gap than a WAGE gap, since there are a myriad of factors at play here. Women DO, on average, make less money than men. That is indisputable, and the margins widen when you include factors of race, disability, and sexuality.
IF you would like some more in depth reading:
So yes, the bake sale above is a pretty simplistic little stunt about a complicated economic and social issue. But the fact that it pisses people off sort of makes its point for it.
Excellent primary sources for those concerned about sex based oppression/ how men continually benefit from female subjugation also I would really like one of those Vegan cupcakes

This. This. This.so maybe I just need to read it a few more times to fully understand it. Or I’m just dumb. Butconnect-the-dots-backwardwhat is this EXACTLY saying lol? I sorta get it. But I’m not content with my assumed understanding
"Feeling better" has not been found to lead to or cause getting better in functional ways (e.g., establishing relationships, pursuing a meaningful career, practicing health habits, etc.) It seems to be more the case that establishing those relationships and pursuing a meaningful career and practicing healthy habits leads to “feeling better.”
So engaging in those positive behaviors even when you don’t “feel” great or your symptoms are distressful is more important than simply getting to a place where you “feel better.”
Practicing healthy things when distressed > waiting until no longer distressed (if possible) and then practicing healthy things.
