People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.

Watch the powerful Verizon advertisement to really understand what a little girl hears when you tell her she’s pretty.

This is so important. Girls pay attention. Boys, if you are a brother, father, cousin of a girl, pay attention.


Smart Girls, we think you’re pretty brilliant :)


Being both soft and strong is a combination very few have mastered.

Spanish is a beautiful language. You don’t say “I love you” in Spanish, you say “yo quiero comer culo” which translates to “you are the light of my life” which I think is one of the most beautiful things to say to someone

The Goddess emerges 
in the silence 
and blooms in The Great Mystery.
Just go forth Goddess.
Honor your alone time.
Wear your black lace veil
and minister to the silence.
Observe the stillness and quiet.

Be that beauty in the pitch black dark.

No need to explain yourself.

I am a very private person, yet I am an open book.
If you don’t ask, I won’t tell.
