Feminism & Happiness

Welcome. I'm Amanda (Mandy), 25, female, afro-latina, currently living in Texas. (temporally living in Perú again) This is my personal blog where I speak about feminism, racism, body positivity and happiness in general. Think of this as a healing space.

We all can

Who I Follow



stop fetishizing straight relationships…………….not every show needs to have straight people…………

I’m tired of all this politically correct “Straight people have to be in every show and every movie” crap. Like damn. Your heterosexuality is not the focus of EVERYTHING. They are just PEOPLE. They don’t need to be everywhere. It’s so unrealistic to have all these straight people around.

1. Stop reading lists of arbitrary life goals written by upper-middle-class white kids.

2.-32. Live your life judgment-free while cackling at people freaking out about those arbitrary life goals.

hello I’m your host Jonathan and welcome once again to another edition of Beemo Goes Apeshit On The Coffee Table. tonite we’re asking viewers why anyone would bother training their budgie to do tricks when it’s entertaining as all fuck just to watch them spazz out with pretty much any small object they can pick up/chuck around.

I would like to draw your attention to the fact that this is the exact same budgie I reblogged a week ago throwing shit on the floor and then dancing in glee about it.  I kind of love him.

My biggest confusion is why people dwell on their “baby” that they chose to abort. I’ve seen so many teens now a days make it public that they miss their baby and this and that.

A miscarriage is one thing. You never had a choice.


Videogames are great, they let you try your craziest fantasies

For example, on the sims, you can have a job and a house

Evolution is awesome!  A native group of people living on the Soloman Islands northeast of Australia called Melanesians is famous for their beautiful dark skin and naturally blonde hair. 

The odd combination has got scientists wondering about how such a color combo develops over time. According to the Global Financial Newswires, many scientists have long thought that their blonde hair was a result of a diet high in fish, perhaps bleaching by the sun and salt water, or a reminder of the island’s historic relations with people of European descent.

In fact, the blonde Melanesians have blonde that is unique solely to them. According to the study in which scientists compared 43 blonde hair islanders to 42 dark hair islanders, blonde Melanesians have a variant of a native gene called TYRP1 that plays an important role in the melanin biosynthetic pathway. This variant is completely separate from what causes blonde hair in Europeans, and doesn’t even exist in the European genetic set.

What’s truly beautiful in this fascinating discovery, as so perfectly stated by the study author Sean Myles, a geneticist at Nova Scotia Agricultural College, is that “it’s a great example of convergent evolution, where the same outcome is brought about by completely different means.”
