Most shy people wish they were more confident, because shyness is ultimately a symptom of you being uncomfortable with who you are. You judge yourself based on other people’s standards and spend too much time in your own head, thinking of how best to act and react in any given situation. This is nothing more than a bad habit, and it’s the sort of thing you can break with regular practice.

Being Shy Is Just a Bad Habit, and You Can Break It With Regular Practice

False, Lifehacker. False. Most of the commenters said it for me.

(via lookoutsideyourself)

Yeah, I used to be VERY shy (still am sort of but not nearly as much) and it was never about being uncomfortable with myself. It was about being uncomfortable with other people. I’d think that would be obvious.

It’s not quite a bad habit either; I’d say it’s really more akin to an anxiety disorder than a bad habit. It IS something you can break with practice (I have done it) but there’s kind of a chicken-and-egg problem there: did I become less shy because I was socializing more, or was I socializing more because I was becoming less shy?

Is it bad that it always makes me laugh to see Spell Check underline “misandry” and “misandrist”?

Apparently it really don exists?

I’m partially tempted to read Fifty Shades of Grey.

I’m not sure if I hate myself enough to do so…

From what I’ve heard it’s more bleh than really awful. So, not entertaining enough to bother with.

also the whole ‘you don’t look sicillian/american’ thing reminds me of this oratory one girl gave about how we equate being educated with whiteness and being uneducated with blackness and how people will tell her all the time ‘oh, when i hear your voice you don’t sound like a black woman!’ and she always responds with ‘this IS what a black woman sounds like!’ 

Basically! “American accent” is pretty much synonymous with “white”. If someone is not white, they should have an accent that reflects their ethnicity…otherwise, they’re not really their ethnicity. (Is how the thought process goes, that is.)

Random semi-related story:

My dad says something to the effect of “I don’t have a Chicago accent”.
I tell him back “But you’ve lived in or near Chicago your entire life, of COURSE you have a Chicago accent!”
"But I don’t sound like Mayor Daley…"
"YOU DON’T HAVE TO!"

THIS LAW STILL RUBS ME THE WRONG WAY

daskannnichtsein:

Someone help my brain work.

Sweden’s law on human trafficking basically makes it illegal for one to try and buy sexual services from a prostitute. It’s directly criminalizing the demand side of sex trade. (Which makes sense, I suppose, because rich Western countries rarely are the suppliers of human trafficking but rather the buyers.)

The thing is…all it seems to do is push the problem out of Sweden. “Out of sight, out of mind”. All you’re doing is making the traffickers choose a different country to sell people at. Is this really solving the problem? Aren’t you still left with a lot of people who are so desperate for money and a living wage, they’ll risk being taken to a foreign country?

And you’ve also got sex workers in Sweden who CAN’T MAKE MONEY. Maybe some of them are in the sex trade because of circumstance, not choice, then how are they to make money. And what of the ones who chose this?

Anyone wanna chime in on this?

A sex worker, on the problems with the Swedish Model.

Am I remembering the story wrong but didn’t the angel get the okay from Mary?

At least in Luke, he did. Luke is very explicit about how Mary wanted this child and raving to her husband about how blessed they were and so on.And he also warns her beforehand, and abortion of some kind or another has existed for pretty much all of human history. So you could argue that the whole point of telling her, and especially of telling us that he told her, is so that her consent to it is unambiguous.
