Who really benefits from the pink ribbon campaigns: the cause or the company? In showing the real story of breast cancer and the lives of those who fight it, this film reveals the co-opting of what marketing experts have labeled a “dream cause.”
If you’re a woman, take the time to watch the documentary Pink Ribbons, Inc.
Watch it on
Youtube (for now…) (x)
Okay Pacific Rim fandom
You’ve got some ‘splaining to do
I liked it a lot, but I’m a fan of visually impressive movies that may or may not be well-written. I liked “The Spirit” for fucks sake. I’m also a fan of mecha anime where shit like ephemeral mind-links, elbow rockets, and folding wrist-mounted swords are standard fare. Yeah, it was silly. But that’s why I liked it. :D
Oh I totally I agree with you. I enjoyed it because it was the epitome of a good summer block buster with great visual effects and robots fighting monsters. It was silly but it was also good. I just can’t help but feel like some people who praised it for an “amazing” plot are taking the piss. :/

WE WILL NOT STOP UNTIL THIS MAP IS RED!
THE BLOOD OF OUR ENEMIESEQUALITY!
sorry if i’m off the mark here but i’m tired of both people who act really immature about not liking school and people who see those people and act really pretentious and awful because they think they have some sort of godly wisdom in saying “suck it up you spineless baby” when really things shouldn’t have to be this way they really shouldn’t
(also in case anyone mentions it: i’m a low-average high school student who generally gets by on really high test scores and has been thinking about ways the school system could improve mostly by watching their friends and observing their problems)
The one point that really rings true to me is having a gap year to do whatever you want and explore your options. Whether you decide to travel, get a job or whatever, this is the perfect liminal stage in a person’s life to really observe the world around them and get to know themselves better.
