So I was watching this video response to sexual harassment in Australia’s army and it was amazing and I wanted to share it.
And then I turned captions on because I wanted to see if it was sufficiently accessible to people who needed captions.
And then I saw this.
“the defense’s penile networks.”
“the defense’s penile networks.”
I KNOW IT’S SERIOUS BUT I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING.
And Daisy Buchanan is naive at first but then she realizes that Gatsby isn’t much better than her husband, barely understands anything about her or her life, and, worse, may very well end up in jail and leave her and her kid with nothing. So yeah, of course she changes her mind, like any reasonable person would.
Daisy has other problems, most notably that she kills someone and doesn’t insist on actually fessing up to it. But hurting Gatsby’s feelings is not why you should be mad at Daisy. Daisy had no option, short of becoming not-a-person, that would not have led to hurting Gatsby’s feelings. Gatsby’s feelings are creepy. Gatsby is creepy.
hey i just met you
and this is crazy
but actually we met five years ago and we were in love and i went to the war and after got rich to get your attention and threw all these parties so you would fall in love with me
so leave your husband for me maybe
daily reminder not to reblog missing people posts unless you actually know who the person in the photo is and that they really are missing, there are shitheads out there who look for people hiding from them. an abusive husband found his wife and child through such a post. they were under protected identity but he found them through a missing person post online.
This is why I never reblog missing person posts. Not because I’m an uncaring jerk.
i don’t normally like to delve into the realms of the TERFy these days, but i felt compelled by some recent experiences to talk about the ways that liberal feminism fails trans women, since trans folks tend to focus their criticisms on radical feminism almost exclusively. my…
Would people be as comfortable buying meat if the date the animal was KILLED was displayed alongside the ‘best before’ date? Consumers should remember that meat is the dead flesh from a once living breathing sentient animal who didn’t want to die.
actually i would feel more comfortable. it would make choosing fresher meat easier. thats a very good idea.
when vegan ideas backfire completely
There not sentient if they cannot read or conduct speach or make choices most importantly they are not sentient if they don’t have free will
Actually no. Sentience means that they can think and have emotions, sapience means they have self-awareness. Studies are showing that dolphins and elephants have some form of sapience.
Some livestock have some measurable sentience, but no measurable sapience. Vegans should arguing over the ethics of sapience rather than sentience to be honest.
some animals can feel and think, it might be limited, or different from our perception but reading and conduction speech isn’t a sign of sentience because you just pretty much smacked a lot illiterate people and people who are non-speaking in the face.
also animals have free will, they make choices without our guidance (considering how my goddamn time my rats fight even when I say ‘fuckoff’
also I am far from vegan…(I love my fucking bacon)
^^ I’m really REALLY tired of people making arguments against animal rights that could easily be extended to justify depriving people with disabilities of the right to live.
You know how it is, right, ladies? You know a guy for a while. You hang out with him. You do fun things with him—play video games, watch movies, go hiking, go to concerts. You invite him to your parties. You listen to his problems. You do all this because you think he wants to be your friend.
But then, then comes the fateful moment where you find out that all this time, he’s only seen you as a potential girlfriend. And then if you turn him down, he may never speak to you again. This has happened to me time after time: I hit it off with a guy, and, for all that I’ve been burned in the past, I start to think that this one might actually care about me as a person. And then he asks me on a date.
I tell him how much I enjoy his company, how much I value his friendship. I tell him that I really want to be his friend and to continue hanging out with him and talking about our favorite books or exploring new restaurants or making fun of avant-garde theatre productions. But he rejects me. He doesn’t answer my calls or e-mails; if we’d been making plans to do something before this fateful incident, these plans mysteriously fail to materialize. (This is why I never did get around to seeing the Hunger Games movie. Not to name any names, but thanks a lot, Tom.) Later, when I run into him at social events, our conversations are awkward and lukewarm. This is because the moment we met, he put me in the girlfriend-zone, and now he can’t see me as friend material.
I must say that I find this really unfair. I mean, I’m a nice girl. I have a lot to offer as a friend, like not being a douchebag and stuff. But males just don’t want to be friends with nice girls like me. They can’t help it, I guess; it’s just how they’re wired, biologically. Evolution conditioned our male hominid ancestors to seek nice girls as mates and form friendship bonds only with the other dudes that they hunted mammoths with. It’s true—I know this because I studied hominids in my fifth-grade science class.
So what’s the answer? Should I take up mammoth-hunting in an attempt to appeal to the friendship centers of men’s primal lizardbrains? Should I keep making guy “friends” and then prevent them from making a move on me by subtly undermining their self-confidence? Should I just give up on those manipulative, game-playing, two-faced bastards once and for all? I don’t know. I mean, I’d really like to have a true friendship with a guy someday, but it’s so hard to trust and respect them when they never say what they mean—and you never know when you might be relegated to the girlfriend-zone.
YES YES YES YES YES
They are asking people to buy tickets even if they’re not going, to help ensure the festival continues in later years. Attendance is way down. In the same email they pretty openly acknowledge that the attendance issues are a result of the “very public struggle about the Festival’s intention to…
I am not surprise that MWMF is on dire straits. It was a matter of time, and this is something to be happy about that people are actually caring about the welfare of trans* women.
Yeah, I also think this is good news overall. I’m sorry that people are losing a place that felt safe to them, but it’s not worth it if the safe space defines itself in a way that harms trans women. And I’m REALLY sad that these people would rather see everything they worked for die than change their policy (although, to be fair, a lot of us wouldn’t go even if they did change their policy - just too much bad history).
I am too, and I believe their should be womyn spaces just as I believe there should be trans* spaces. It’s heartbreaking that this is going to die because of refusal to understand that trans*womyn are not usurping womyn’s identities or undermining WBW experiences. This sort of isolation isn’t helping or progressing anything. I feel bad for womyn who needed MichFest and that space only to find it slipping away and I respect womyn that find peace and solidarity in those spaces. I just can’t support them as a <s>sex traitor</s> trans*man.
Also am judging the shit out of my trans* brothers who continue to go to MichFest. Seriously guys, not cool. You honestly can’t have it both ways.
