The Charmed Circle was out to lunch. They had commandeered a booth in the dining hall that would fit the lot of them. Galinda was sitting in Elphaba’s lap, flipping through a fashion magazine while occasionally taking a bite out of Elphaba’s vegan-chicken sandwich on rye with spinach, carrots, and olives.
Elphaba was enduring this with a long suffering look, eventually setting the sandwich down and just eating all the bits that had fallen out with her long fingers.
"You two are disgustingly cute," someone commented commented as Galinda accepted an olive from the green woman.
Elphaba flushed while Galinda grinned and twisted so she could peck her girlfriend on the cheek.
"Don’t see why you can’t eat your own food," Elphaba murmured in the Frottican’s ear as everyone got distract by something ShenShen was saying. "You’ve got your own wrap."
"Because the sandwich is yours and therefore automatically better."
Elphaba rolled her eyes and nipped at Galinda’s ears with her sharp teeth. The blonde squeaked and slapped her girlfriend’s thigh.
The Munchkin simply smirked.
If men don’t have to be aggressive, women won’t be compelled to be submissive. If men don’t need to control, women won’t have to be controlled. Both men and women should feel free to be strong. It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals. We should stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by who we are.
I HAVE FOUND WHAT I’VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR
This is Sam Pepper. If you don’t know who he is, Sam is a successful YouTube prankster with over 2 million subscribers. He recently uploaded a video titled “Fake Hand Ass Pink Prank" where he pinched unsuspecting girls’ butts without their permission. None of this was done with the girls’ consent…meaning Sam Pepper sexually harassed and assaulted these women.
This is no longer a “simple, harmless prank” but rather a very serious matter and offence. If you haven’t seen the video yet, you can watch, dislike, and report it HERE. You can also take the pledge to help stop sexual violence at itsonus.org. Please do not let Sam get away with this kind of behavior. He crossed the line and needs to be held responsible for his disgusting actions.
HOW TO REPORT SAM’S VIDEO:
Click “sexual content”.
This will provide a drop down menu where you can click “Other sexual content.”
This will bring you to another section where you can “provide additional details”. Here you can explain why you feel Sam’s video is inappropriate.
Hank Green has now publicly said that Sam Pepper will no longer be welcome at VidCon.

I have to add, this wasn’t just a case of a pretty woman got advanced on by a man she didn’t want. He wasn’t just an admirer. He was her student. She was a master at mathematics, astronomy, and philosophy. She had popular public lectures.
And she wasn’t just said to throw her menstrual rags at him. The story I read was that he admitted his admiration in the middle of one of her teachings, and she grabbed her menstrual rags right out from in between her legs, hurled it at him, and told him “This is what you really love, my young man, but you do not love beauty for its own sake.”
It wasn’t just an attempt to discourage him. It was teaching him a lesson, even when he was interrupting hers.
Basically, Hypatia was amazing.

Meet the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police, serving the capital of Iceland. By the looks of their incredible Instagram account, a normal day includes holding kittens, eating candy and wearing false mustaches.
For the record the Icelandic police are probably the best police force in the world, There has only been one instance where an officer shot and killed a civilian in the entire history of the country (which is nearly a hundred years) and everyone was completely devastated by it, the police especially — because, as made clear in their statements after the incident, they understand their function is to protect the people. Not to mention that their general police go unarmed except for special squads.
Let’s run through some more facts while we’re on the subject: Compared to 31,000+ shooting deaths in the US in 2009, Iceland had… 4, because they have very rigorous screening processes for gun permits. There is very little economic disparity between upper, middle and lower classes, and social welfare programs take care of their people. Drug use affects less than 1% of the population between 15 and 65 years old, and 90% of drug-related court cases are settled with a fine rather than jail time. Violent crime is virtually non-existent. [x]
Iceland is like if you took the entire idea of chill and personified it as an country, and this exemplifies that.
