Dad: Why do you think they do that?
Girl: Because the companies who make these try to trick the girls into buying the pink stuff instead of stuff boys want to buy. [x]
that awkward moment when a child understands the harm of forcing gender roles better than most grown male politicians.
I’m surprised that I haven’t reblogged this, to be honest.
I love that last gif. She looks so frustrated. Like “Um, hello, obviously girls and boys can like anything why doesn’t anybody get that???”

I am not personally a fan of this show, but boy are these so awesome looking!
Today I had the pleasure of making genuine ultramarine blue oil paint. The pigment, powdered lapis lazuli, creates one of the most sought after blue paints in all of art history. It is a paint that Vermeer used extensively.
While I’m not going to share the paint (it’s expensive!), I will share these nearly pornographic photos of the the paint-making process.
"No More Guns for Domestic Violence Offenders"
SOURCE: http://bit.ly/18sShzV -
"A federal lifetime ban on gun ownership for domestic violence misdemeanants does not violate the Second Amendment, the 9th Circuit ruled Monday."
Full Ninth Circuit Court Decision: http://1.usa.gov/17OceTe
NOTE: This is NOT a state law but a FEDERAL law from 1996 that was challenged and upheld this past Monday, November 18, 2013. The specific law is: http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/uscode/18/I/44/922. This effectively ends the matter, as the 9th Circuit Court’s opinion is solid and is highly unlikely to be taken by SCOTUS for further review.
It even applies to the military and I’ve seen guys put out of the Army because of it. Because the law is part of an amendment to the Gun Control Act of 1968 that was introduced by Senator Frank Lautenberg, it’s referred to as the Lautenberg Amendment. (Thanks, SSG Akuna, for making me study that for the promotion board. I was asked about it, after alll.)
Where was this 9 years ago?
