#heforshe is so popular that the UN is a trending blog on tumblr. This is a great day.

I know there are mixed feels about the reaction of the world to Emma Watson’s speech, and the sentiment behind #heforshe.

But to my mind, little steps - anything that brings to light in the mainstream regarding feminism and women’s rights is a step in the right direction.

Being a nice person is so fun

Waiter messes something up? You can see the relief on their faces when you don’t scream and swear at them about it

Extra tickets at an arcade/prize place? Watch a little kid’s face light up when you give them a bunch of tickets

There are too many assholes in this world. Be a nice person.
