Teen Titans Theme Song by Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi

We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, ‘You can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise you will threaten the man.’ Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support. But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors – not for jobs or for accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.

1 note Pie? Tart? I’m not sure… But basically it’s got an all butter crust (which was awful to make in this summer heat) topped with thinly sliced plums, nectarines, and peaches, marinated in St. Germaine’s elderflower liquor, passionfruit rum, vanilla bean paste, brown sugar, and butter. I drained and arranged the sliced fruit and then reduced the marinade to make a glaze.
