There’s a Danish Town Overrun with Giant Oysters – MUNCHIES

“Books, games, movies, and our own experiences are a chance to do one of two things: temporarily escape our own existences, or get inspired to improve ourselves in real life.” Don’t Escape. Get Inspired. – Nerd Fitness

10 Foreign Words We Need in English – Mental Floss

“There are plenty of pieces out there, I’ve found, about what not to say. (Example: Do not tell a person experiencing clinical depression to “get over it,” or to “snap out of it.”) But less common are the pieces that advise us on what’s in the right ballpark.”  What do you say when someone tells you about their mental health diagnosis? – Esme Wang

When Should You Become a Mom? – Forbes


“My first name is Kim. Technically its gender neutral but my experience showed that most people’s default setting in the absence of any other clues is to assume Kim is a women’s name. And nothing else on my CV identified me as male. At first I thought I was being a little paranoid but engineering, trades, sales and management were all definitely male dominated industries. So I pictured all the managers I had over the years and, forming an amalgam of them in my mind, I read through the document as I imagined they would have. It was like being hit on the head with a big sheet of unbreakable glass ceiling.” How I Discovered Gender Discrimination – What Would King Leonidas Do

Privilege 101: A Quick and Dirty Guide – Everyday Feminism

“There is exactly one thing about her story that has to do specifically with LGBTQ issues, and that is that her husband married her and had children with her even though he was a gay man. That should be her enemy here. She should be out there campaigning for better education for youth on LGBTQ issues and greater acceptance of LGBTQ individuals. She should be out there sharing her story and spreading the message that gay individuals cannot fix themselves by entering into straight marriages. But she’s not. Instead she has misguidedly decided that it is gay marriage that is the problem, and inserted herself into the debate, decrying the destruction of her family even as she opposes others’ right to form families of their own.” Has Gay Marriage Harmed this Writer and her Children- Love, Joy, Feminism

Chart of the Day: States with the most abortion restrictions are the worst on women’s and children’s health – Feministing

“I find that “crazy” has become a go-to word to describe less-than-perfect family members and ex-partners. When someone in our personal lives is deemed “crazy,” it’s code for “I don’t like them. Don’t take them seriously.”
We use “crazy” to write people off.” Mental Illness and Sexism: What Calling Women ‘Crazy’ Actually Does – Everyday Feminism


4 Ways to Cope When You’re Around Unhappy People – Jennifer Twardowski

“The problem as I see it, is this: we have been seduced into thinking worth is measured by doing. Or rather, worth is defined by output. So a person who is able to produce and put out a large amount of work is ‘worth’ the resources they use to keep them alive while they produce that work.” On Usefulness: Underneath It All, We Want to Be of Worth – Grace Quantock
