"So, er, for the non South Asians in the audience who perhaps didn’t understand why there was applause, the British built a really extensive railway system throughout India before they left, and it wasn’t so much for transportation for the Indian people, it was because it’s really hard to plunder on foot."
Hari Kondabolu’s joke about the British colonisation of India [x]
Seriously though, why does media glorify women who wear skimpy clothing and act sexy and seductive but the moment a girl walks out of her house in a crop top and short shorts, she gets catcalls and SLUT! ?
People who say sadness doesn’t hurt physically apparently never experienced feeling so sad. I’ve felt it in my legs, my jaw, my head, my quivering lips, aching eyes, and my aching chest. It hurts my chest the most because it literally feels like your heart is in pain.
How do you even…. ?
This is the type of stage pageantry that people pay hundreds to see. Imagine how long the costume designer took intricately put into making those dresses the people behind the scene are the true heroes of theater

Pregnancy is not that bad.
I have now had my second child, and I keep hearing jokes about my husband from my friends. “Oh, you will never understand that pain.” “oh, a man could never have a baby.” First of all, neither one of those women had ever been pregnant, so they were just assuming, but I don’t see why people complain about it so much. I also think It’s really unfair to assume that someone (men) couldn’t do something when you have no proof. Physically, my husband can’t carry or birth a child, but that doesn’t mean that he couldn’t if pregnancy were possible for men. My husband works in construction. He lifts heavy stuff all day and comes back with aching joints to the point where he can’t bend down to pick things up. The rate for injury is very high there. Guys (and I assume women) at his job get limbs crushed and removed every year. (I try not to think about it) There are plenty of other dangerous jobs where men normally get that could cause them similar pain. I would think that if the gender could deal with the aching joints of carrying heavy things for hours and could live through limbs being crushed or cut off, they can handle pregnancy.
Maybe it is because I got an epidural (which was the most painful part for me), but pregnancy to me, both carrying the baby and delivering it were not that bad. It was painful, but I know that there are more painful things that others have to go through. Maybe I just have a better tolerance for pain, but I would much rather have a baby than go through losing a limb. I mean, for the most part, pregnancy is a choice. If you don’t think you can handle the pain, then you don’t have to get pregnant.
I’ve never read something more obviously written by a man in my life.
no i’m pretty sure i can top that with some of the comments holy FUCK
'women don't actually experience that much pain during labor'
honey i am coming for you
"Losing limbs isn’t that bad just because people are still alive afterward"
"Getting surgery without anesthesia isn’t that bad just because some people have a higher pain tolerance than others"
"It’s probably comparable to this thing that is a thousand times easier than the thing I am comparing it to"
"Why are you complaining so much about this horrible, painful, time-consuming, life-consuming, energy-consuming, money-consuming thing you only went through with either because you were willing to make the sacrifice or because someone forced you to do it?"
"My experiences are obviously applicable to all people so I’m sure if I say it’s not that bad then everyone will agree with me."
"Also nobody has the right to complain about something they know is hard because it’s not as hard for me as it is for them so obviously they’re lying about it being hard."
