gender roles men could try to crush

  • talking over women
  • not being concerned about women receiving street harassment
  • centralizing women’s thoughts and opinions on how they feel
  • accepting ideas that promote rape culture

the only gender role men seem to care about crushing

  • watching shows primarily geared towards little girls
  • liking glittery things
  • literally anything that doesn’t involve altering their behavior towards women

The Gleaming Stimulants  -  Via: .emptykingdom

Whether you’re a biologist or an owner, these vibrant, translucent, umbrella-like Medusa heads have always been a marvelous mystery. A particular species that lacks bones, brain, blood, and a heart has been on Earth way before dinosaurs. Most interestingly, some species of jellyfish are immortal.

On how he came up with his Afrobeat sound.

"Name? Fela. 
Just Fela? Yeah, jus’ Fela. 
Address? My house. 
Where? Right here, in Surulere, man, yeah!” 
A conversation between Fela and the police officer who ‘checked’ him in at Alagbon Close police station in 1974, the very first time Fela was arrested. 

"To be spiritual is not by praying and going to church. Spiritualism is the understanding of the universe so that it can be a better place to live in." 
Fela’s explanation on one of his anti-Christian views. 

"…man is here against his will. Where do we come from? What was before us?…when you think you die, you’re not dead. It’s a transition." 
Fela being philosophical on life and death. 

"That is my best friend because it is a gift of the creator to Africans. It is a spirit. Marijuana has five fingers of creation…it enhances all your five senses." 
Pointing to and explaining the essence of a joint. 

"No. Not at all. You know what I want? I want the world to change." 
Fela’s reply to the question : ”Do you want to leave an imprint on the world?”
