"I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat."

This is where…

This reblog is not complete without including the awesome gif explaining why 180 degrees = 1 radian

That would be sweet. I’m in for 2, 3, and 5. 4 wasn’t available.
