I have an A.S. in Social Science and plan to go farther--I'm 18, my name is Rachel, and psychology and neuroscience are the greatest. I'm fascinated by people's minds and the brain. Hence the URL. I'm an atheist, a skeptic, and unorthodox. I don't like authority, rules, conformity, or structure. Relatively new to tumblr.

Raise your hand if you used to play with these things for hours and if you came across them again you would still play with them for hours.

Good article, this. I actually don’t think we have free will, the quantum behavior of small particles could affect how our neurons fire which could affect our behavior…you never know.

Reblog to save a life.

Yes!!!!!

Unless you have one or more of the following criteria in sections A, B, and C, and two or more of the following in D and E, as well as criteria F, G and H, THEN YOU DO NOT HAVE PTSD. STOP MARGINALIZING PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY DO.

A. Exposure to actual or threatened death, serious injury, or sexual violence in one (or more) of the following ways:

1. Directly experiencing the traumatic event(s).

2. Witnessing, in person, the event(s) as it occurred to others.

3. Learning that the traumatic event(s) occurred to a close family member or close friend. In cases of actual or threatened death of a family member or friend, the event(s) must have been violent or accidental.

4. Experiencing repeated or extreme exposure to aversive details of the traumatic event(s) (e.g., first responders collecting human remains; police officers repeatedly exposed to details of child abuse).

Note: Criterion A4 does not apply to exposure through electronic media, television, movies, or pictures, unless this exposure is work related.

Feminism is not about who opens the jar.

It is not about who pays for the date. It is not about who moves the couch. It is not about who kills the bugs. It is not about who cooks the dinner. It’s not even about who stays home with the kids, as long as the decision was made together, after thinking carefully about your situation and coming to an agreement that makes sense for your particular marriage and family.

It is about making sure that nobody ever has to do anything by “default” because of their gender. The stronger person should move the couch. The person who enjoys cooking more, has more time for it, and/or is better at it should do the cooking. Sometimes the stronger person is male, sometimes not. Sometimes the person who is best suited for cooking is female, sometimes not. You should do what works.

But it is also about letting people know that it is okay to change. If you’re a woman who wants to become stronger, that’s great. If you’re a man who wants to learn how to cook, that’s also great. You might start out with a relationship where the guy opens all the jars and the girl cooks all the meals, but you might find that you want to try something else. So try it.

if this isn’t on your blog i think i’m going to have a problem with you.

I don’t think most of you know, but this girl has, or had, a tumblr. She was getting anon hate of being accused that she didn’t have cancer because she had hair in her photo. Thus, getting her to make this gif. See that fake smile? Can you see how firmly she’s holding everything in? Wow, I know.

I don’t care what blog type you have. Reblog this.

Prostitution is illegal because it has the potential to give women ownership of their sexuality and there’s no way that can be allowed.

That awkward moment when male prostitutes are also illegal, thus making your statement exactly what it is: bullshit.

What a trainwreck

Cats who can’t figure out walls [x]

PLEASE TAKE YOUR CAT TO THE VET IF YOU SEE THEM DOING THIS BEHAVIOR OVER TIME.

It’s called “head pressing” and it occurs in dogs and cats. 

Head pressing is characterized by the compulsive act of pressing the head against a wall or other object for no apparent reason. This generally indicates damage to the nervous system, which may result from a number of varying causes, including prosencephalon disease (in which the forebrain and thalamusparts of the brain are damaged), or toxic poisoning.
