Reblogs and bullshit

26 yr. old lady residing in NY with partner of 10 years, 9 cats, 2 lizards, 2 mice, and one lonely rope fish. I enjoy nail polish and politics. The beach near me is far too dirty for long walks.

“Being fat carries with it a lot of cultural baggage. At the same time, fat people, especially fat women, are supposed to pretend we don’t exist or that we’re not fat. I can’t count the number of times thin people have made reference to fat people or fatness in a negative or joking way in front of me, from the petite woman sitting next to me at the coffee shop complaining about fat people on airplanes, to my friends who routinely make jokes about their “inner fat kids” coming out when they eat a lot, to the women in my family who compete to see who can look the thinnest in family photos. Sometimes it feels like I’m not even there, or that I’m not supposed to be.”

Seriously how I feel around all my skinny inlaws . I love them but they are all very slender and make fat comments constantly. Then the one extremely tiny girl says how rude she finds it when she hears people gasp and comment on how thin she is. Totally understandable feeling….but you’d think it would pave the way to realizing that you guys do much the same thing.

if i as a retail worker have to work with a dozen cameras pointed at me to deter me from stealing $10, cops should have to work with a camera pointed at them to deter them from arbitrarily maiming and killing people

lmfaoooooooooooooo Yes!

Lmao!
How can I be racist if I work with blacks
How can I be racist if one sold me slacks
I’m not racist I’m just like you. I’m best friends with a black or two.

i’m not racist, you see, it’s just a preference
i love eastern culture and its women’s deference
the west lost its way with no room for clemency
If I love Asian women, how’s that white supremacy?

i’m not a racist, i can’t be, you see
my great grandma’s grandma was part cherokee

The young lady that was shot in the head by a police officer is still waiting to be interviewed by the police department
Ferguson Police claimed that 4 to 5 Black males conducted a drive by which resulted in a White woman being shot in the head. (Here, Here, Here)
(they’ve edited the articles to take out the white part and that she was killed hehehe)
Residents knew it was BS. 
Turns out Mya was shot by a police officer. The department forced surgeons to take the bullet out and took the bullet for “Ballistics”
Over a week later, she still has yet to be contacted by the department
Do not let her story go ignored

Everything about Ferguson makes me want to hulk smash things! And you have some white people basically cheerleading the shit, then you got people that “don’t think the kid deserved to get shot” but are literally more worried about minorities treating them the way we treat minorities. Like really? That is your fucking takeaway from this shit? “Glad it isn’t my white ass!”
I know that the vast vast majority of people were not rioting and were not violent - I don’t want to spread that BS…but if they were, could you fucking blame them? How fucking much do you expect people to deal with before losing it? White people might do worse if AppleBee’s discontinues their favorite appetizer but when people are righteously angry over this BULLSHIT you want to start critiquing their response? Jeeeeesus.

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $400,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson

Mine Kafon by Massoud Hassani

Hassani, a product designer from Afganistan, build (by hand) a wind-powered device that trips land mines as it rolls across the ground. It is made using bamboo and biodegradable products.

Many of these mines are active and near populated areas in countries like Afganistan and are hard to remove. The UN says that one mine clearance specialist is killed, and two injured, for every 5,000 mines cleared.

Hassani’s cheap and easy to make method has been achieving great results.

In a world of overcomplicated solutions, we need more people who think “Wait, why don’t we just roll a giant freaking ball over it?”

this guy made a katamari for landmines

I can’t believe it is almost September already! I hope it stays nice for as long as possible so I can sit on my porch with my laptop. It is so relaxing and I can smoke and it doesn’t smell like cat pee/rat cages that need cleaning.

Anonymous asked: Check out this news coverage of a Oklahoma City cop who's been raping people on the job: "Police say the women were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, but it's not clear if race played a role in the alleged crimes." What exactly would make it "clear" that race "played a role"? (P.S. Fuck the police!)

Seriously, what’s it take, Media?

Did they mention Ferguson at all at the VMAS? I only watched a few performances after it ended because I was busy tonight.

I heard MTV sent reporters there to interview people specifically to show on the VMAS but they didn’t…shocking, I know. But did they do anything at all to raise awareness with that huge ass platform that was only worth watching because amazing black women fucking killed it?

  • What they say to kids who want pets: Are you sure you're not just saying you want one because all your friends have one? Remember, it's not going to be small and cute forever, it will grow up eventually! It's a living being that will depend entirely on you for the rest of its life. Are you really sure you're ready for this?
  • What they say to adults who DON'T want kids: Oh, you'll want one sooner or later. Everybody does, after all. Besides, babies are soooo cute, aren't they? You'd better hurry up before you get too old!
