I struggle with this a lot. Thanks for posting a reminder. :)
When I start to berate myself I try to imagine some entitled old guy saying it. If I wouldn’t tolerate anyone else saying these things why am I saying them to myself?

But what if I want to feel sad?
I do. I often don't listen to my own advice to my detriment.
Especially because I have to wonder... Are they not acknowledging my concerns because I have an obviously female-gendered name?
Finland also ranks consistently high on "happiest countries in the world" lists, "equality for women" lists, and it’s apparently a country full of introverts (like me). We should all move to Finland.
The answer to "Who runs the world?" is still "Rich people", though.
just stay out of any threads on the big subs about her. she's conventionally attractive and, as we all know, that's what really matters here.
very proud of the Finns for what they've accomplished though, and after such a history of adversity with only relatively recent independence too.
They are all in their early thirties and I'm sitting here in my PJs at 10am playing FFXIV.
What am I doing with my life
Expat Suomalainen here. I am absolutely proud of my Finn heritage! We have spent an incredibly long time as Sweden's little sister and/or being in fear of neighbors to the East. But equality is one of the things where Finland is considered a leader now!
I would totally go back if I weren't completely in love with my American job. This country could stand to learn much from Finland.
Women do have it great here! The current parliament has 47% women in it but there was still this talk on the news on "why is there less women in the parliament" when the last election ended.
Oh look it’s a Scandinavian country, raise your hand if you’re not surprised
Edit: Nordic not Scandinavian
Completely irrelevant but I would really like to be able to blowdry my hair like that.
That's so great! Finland is setting an example I hope my country (U.S.) will follow!
On a side note I adore Finnish names. So lovely.
This looks like a Republican nightmare.
I'm all for it.
I miss Finland!
Unfortunately, Finland doesn't run the world. If they did I think things would be a bit better - as it is I want meteor strikes on most major governmental centers, cuz it feels like nothing short of that will make for meaningful change. :-/
Well with any luck, the best people. And in this case we just might have what we need.
here's a vid of her as a mayor managing a large meeting
Go Finland! Wooh!
Li Andersson is giving me strong Allison Janey West Wing vibes.
Is Finland actually that White? genuine question.
I know there's a rising degree of racism, especially against immigrants, but I'm curious if they had the option of choosing woc to run with them or if these women were their only choices. i also don't know how the finish government works so i could be wrong about all of this :p
Let's not forget that privileged women in positions of power does not mean true equality
This is pretty amazing. I'm 34 and I cannot imagine being in this position. Sometimes I think I'm not doing this adult thing correctly!
Can I reclaim my heritage and become a Finn please? I don't want to be in the new world anymore.
Yes more women drone pilots, those middle eastern kids will love the diversity
Women run the world! Women are in charge now! Fucking finally:)
Yay! Who runs the world?
The whole reason the finn's do so well with gender equality is because they don't care about gender, so please let's make sure that the whole world works the same way where principles and ideas prevail over identity. Let's promote that over posts such as these because your intent is good but the line of achieving is as the finns show, is not :)
What are all the Finnish men doing?
E: 46.5% of all Members of Parliament are women. Score one for men!!
Sorry for my ignorance, why is there a "Swedish People Party" in Finland?
Maaaan are tree skirt crazy expensive or what?? Beautiful tree. I hope it brings you lots of happiness this season.
the amount of dudes who compare their dicks to breasts is way too high.
they do know they have nipples too, right?
their nipples too get pointy.
why so angry at nipples?
... but you do that anyway, you perv.
I basically gave up on real bras several months ago, even though my breasts are pretty large. I wear True brand bralettes most of the time, they are comfy as fuck and cheap. I don’t care if you can see my nipples or if my boobs aren’t always standing perfectly perked up. Couldn’t care less. Tired of spending $65 on each bra and having to replace them each year. I’m all done with it. They’re boobs, I like them, and if you can see my nipples through my shirt, good for you.
I had both of them pierced and only wear a thin bra without padding when wearing something slightly see through. BECAUSE NIPPLES SHOULDN'T BE A BIG DEAL
*(also I cant find proper bras cuz I have tiny boobs but that's neither here nor there)
Are you my assistant boss? Because holy shit, she is in the same position when our big boss had to retire and we (the people our general/asst boss supervises) feel like both of them are awesome af, so we all need to take care and make sure asst boss doesn’t burn out before anyone can offer her a new position or a new big boss is hired.
We (the adorable minions) are stressed as hell. Having a good couple of bosses is critical to enjoying a job. And it’s tough to now know what’s happening next.
Giiiirl update that resume. Document all their bullshit. And get ready to jump ship.
DO NOT DO EXTRA WORK WITHOUT EXTRA PAY
DONT LET THEM USE YOU!!!
They're stringing you along.
When all your allies are leaving it's time to prepare an exit strategy
I’m not sure how much it means coming from an internet stranger, but I hope things get better for you. Slay those demogorgons!
Make that 3pm 😎
edgy and quirky
Had that just last night! Always when I have insomnia...
I think this is wholesome and I wish I were your friend.
