Once I was sitting at a convention table promoting That Which Wills, the first story of which being outright gay erotica. Sometimes when guys pick it up they either put it down straightaway like their hands have been burned, or act like they’re holding a baby upside down. Then up comes the biggest dudebro to ever dudebro with his dudebro friend, and my expectations were very low when they picked up the book.

"Oh, hello!" He starts laughing when he turns to one of the sexier pages. "They look like they’re having fun." And proceeds to keep reading.

His friend rolls his eyes and comments he didn’t know mr dudebro was into that sort of thing, to which dudebro snorts back. “Why do I have to be into anything? Gay people exist in real life so it makes fucking sense they should exist in stories, dude?”

He ended up reading half of the book, chatted happily with me about the charcters, bought it, shook my hand, and went on his merry way.

It’s something I remember from time to time because it’s an example of how uncomplicated it should really be.

True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.

It makes me so angry that he benefitted financially from this. These people did NOTHING, they absolutely didn’t deserve that.

Fuck yeah, fucking-asexual-community is finally gone.

That blog was just awful, elitist, bigotted, slanderous and no help for anyone. The author was a self-important person who liked to erase people from the spectrum because it did not fit their view of who is or isn’t asexual - and denied the existance of demisexual and grey-ace people completely.

Hopefully they can find a new hobby that does not include excluding people from something they can identify and be comfortable with.

new undies: cute
stretchmarks: also cute

No no no and NO stretch marks are never cute!! wtf too lazy to go get some cocoa butter and use it daily? We all have stretch marks but we can get rid of it.. People should take care of themselves and if cocoa butter didnt work for you make an appointment for a laser stretch mark removal dont be a lazy ass

all stretch marks are beautiful no exceptions 

  1. stretch marks are perfectly fine and natural and beautiful, free lightning bolt tattoos yo
  2. cocoa butter is a preventative that does not always work, and smells and stains clothes and oh yeah, since a lot of people get stretch marks just from growing NOT from weight, theyd have to slather their whole body and no one really wants to do that or smell like that so strongly.
  3. laser treatment? really? you want people to pay $1000+/appt (usually takes a few treatments) to get rid of something perfectly natural because you’ve named yourself standard of the fucking world and think we all live to please you? most people dont have that money and if they do thats not what they want to spend it on.
  4. also fuck you.

I usually don’t reblog ladies in undies, but for real. Don’t fuckin’ knock people over stretchmarks, or anything on their bodies for that matter. I’ve been underweight all my life and have them from growing. They happen. The just do. 

FREE LIGHTNING TATTOOS

You’ve earned your beautiful stripes, you fine ass tiger.

The original is good, the comment is STUNNING. Love it!

So, basically, this is a symbolic representation of internalized misogyny:

When I was 12 boys slid their hand up my thigh and slapped my butt. I smiled and took it because I didn’t know it was okay to say stop. I didn’t know that I could say no. So, when the principal calls telling me my daughter is suspended for punching a boy who wouldn’t stop touching her, I will cook her favorite meals. When she tells me how she cursed at the boy who wouldn’t move his hands off her knee even though she asked him to, I will smile and pull out her favorite movie to watch together. I will celebrate the fact that she accepts her body as her own and knows she has the right to say no. I never want my daughter to think her body belongs to men, because it is her own and my god should she be proud. I will teach her it’s more than okay to say stop, something I wish I had known when I was that age.
