sorry everyone

Excuse me.

One of the first women to start her own independent production company.

Earned her way to stardom without sleeping with executives for roles.

Refused to date people for publicity just because 20th Century Fox wanted her to.

Left 20th Century Fox because she refused to let them get away with treating her badly and paying her a tiny wage, just because of her “dumb blonde” image.

Was only paid a fraction of her co-star’s wage even though she was the star of the movies and the biggest box office pull, but still went ahead with the movies because she was so passionate about acting.

Studied method acting at the Actors Studio with Lee Strasberg, who said that she was one of his best students along with Marlon Brando.

Had a personal library of over 500 books and rarely read fiction - she was desperate to learn and educate herself.

Was sexually abused as a child but then went on to encourage the sexual liberation of women in the 1950s. 

One of the first people to speak openly about sexual abuse.

One of the first people to openly support gay rights.

Supported many charities such as the Milk Fund, March of Dimes, Arthritis and Rheumatism foundation.

Donated her time and money to these charities.

Visited orphanages and hospitals on her own time to surprise the people there.

Married one of the greatest literary minds of the 20th century

Suffered two miscarriages and one ectopic pregnancy and still put on a brave face for her fans.

Sorry, did you say she wasn’t a role model? 

marilyn is my biggest role model so don’t even go there

and let’s not forget this

Ella Fitzgerald was not allowed to play at the popular Mocambo, in Hollywood, because of her race. Marilyn, who loved her music and supported civil rights, called the owner of the Mocambo and told him that if he booked Ella immediately, she would take a front table every night. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. After that, Ella never had to play in a small jazz club again.

“She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it.” - Ella Fitzgerald about Marilyn Monroe

But what does history remember her for?  

I will forever reblog this, Marilyn was so ahead of her time, she will continue to inspire others for years and years to come. My idol. 💖

The GOP reversing course on gutting the ethics office is not cause for us to get comfortable. It is cause for us to realize our voices have power. Our voices have merit, and when we use them, our voices can push back against the GOP. Take heart, celebrate today’s win, then get right back to it. They’re not going to stop, so neither should we.

The very minute they start talking healthcare in this Congress, call your Republican reps’ offices and demand an explanation for why they’re trying to kill you. They’ll notice.

This is very important if you’re ever in a situation similar this pretend that you’re dead don’t scream and @#!*%

my dad told us this if someone shoots up our school

SUPER IMPORTANT

BEST TIP

PLEASE REMEMBER THIS

not even a joke we learned this in Police Explorers and put it on your clothing as well but go quickly because you don’t know where the person is.

This is what school children in America are taught.
That is so wrong on so many fucking levels and there are still people who believe gun control in any form is a bad thing.

let me reiterate
SCHOOL CHILDREN IN A SUPPOSEDLY FIRST WORLD COUNTRY ARE TAUGHT THE SAME THINGS AS PEOPLE IN ACTIVE WAR ZONES BECAUSE THE THREAT OF BEING KILLED IN A SHOOTING IS SO HIGH.

the bit in caps here is making me rethink my stance on gun control 

shit

I’m reblogging this because as my follower count goes up, the odds of this saving a life do too.

My elementary school had drills telling us what to do in such an emergency. This is exactly what they told us. AND NOW FOR A FACT: IN CALIFORNIA YOU DO NOT HAVE TO REGISTER A SHOTGUN!

I live in America, and I was only taught to hide and be quiet. I had to learn this on Tumblr. If one more person says that technology is ruining children, they best shut the hell up because this could be saving lives

We had more lockdown drills at school than we did fire drills…

Young people were hurt the worst by the financial crisis

Twenty-somethings suffered disproportionately from the financial crisis and the ensuing global recession. Almost one in 10 jobs held by people under age 30 were destroyed during the financial crisis, and many of them haven’t come back, the OECD found. It’s particularly bad for people known as “NEETs.”

Masseria Trapanà

A 16th-century fortified farmhouse converted into a wonderful 9-suite hotel, Masseria Trapanà sits quietly in rural Puglia, just outside the beautiful Baroque city of Lecce. Surrounded by themed gardens and sixty hectares of olive groves, the property makes for an atmospheric countryside retreat.

The minimalist rooms and suites retain their stunning architectural features while mixing modern technology with eye-catching antiques. Most units boast private courtyards, vaulted ceilings, and delightful outdoor baths, and some of them preserve their original fireplaces.

Special features include an ancient chapel and a beautiful swimming pool area with daybeds, but cooking and yoga classes can also be arranged. The masseria can be rented as a private villa on a weekly basis.
