This is going to be a very random post coming to you at a very random time, but there are two videos that I want to share with you. Two videos that I think everyone should see once in their lifetime. The first is amusing. The second is important (but also amusing.)
Even if you are not a fan of One Direction, this is funny. If nothing else, it’s self-deprecating as it mocks the sheer commercialism of the band. I think I laughed for a solid ten minutes after watching this. And then I watched it again.
#2: This video I think is extremely important. It’s about sex. But far more importantly, it’s about consent, and putting consent into terms that are both easily understandable and shockingly clear. If you are a teacher, a parent, or (as cases may have it) simply a good friend, you should spread this video like wildfire. So much of today’s problems come from ignorance and/or confusion. This video makes sure that there can be none of that, and that “oh, I didn’t know s/he didn’t want it” can’t be used as an excuse. It’s also funny as hell. I highly recommend taking a look!
