"This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals—sounds that say listen to this, it is important.” - Gary Provost

Reading this was so satisfying woah

First tweet:

Male physical strength is for building and protecting the women/children in our lives. Anything else is abuse. This applies verbally also.

Second tweet:

The Ray Rice incident occurred many times n my childhood, & I believe nothing’ll change unless MEN change the culture that allows this abuse

Third tweet:

That culture change takes a lot more than wearing pink gloves and accessories at football games.]


Terry Crews on Ray Rice.

[Funny how the same men who think shooting an unarmed teenager is wrong, have no problem w/violence against women-in fact-say she provoked it]
