I was upset, and then delighted.
IM GONNA CRY THIS IS SO CUTE OH NO
I try to keep abreast of the latest that’s on the Tumblr.
I truly can’t imagine a better gift than a “Notorious RBG” shirt from the Notorious RBG herself.(via thebicker)
Girls, romanticize yourselves. You are a queen. You are a warrior. You are an enchantress. You are a mermaid. You are a goddess. You are all of these things and more, you are the stuff of fairytales.
Women, traumatize others. You are a dragon. You are a wolf. You are a bump in the night. You are the last thing they see in the darkness. You are all of these things and more, you are the heart of their fucking nightmares.
Look at these thugs destroying their community!
Gang violence within the pumpkin community, we must not let these gangsters tarnish the great American image with their shenanigans
Where are the white leaders speaking up about this?! Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, Bill O’ Reilly?! Where are you?
Who are we to blame for this type or destructive behavior? Iggy Azalea? Macklemore? The white community has got to stop with this behavior if they ever want to move on.
But then again maybe the pumpkin deserved it? What did the pumpkin do to provoke them? We should just wait for the facts first.
Look, the Republicans just slay me. They are just so ridiculous. So they had an Ebola czar. His name is Vivek Murthy. He’s President Obama’s nominee for Surgeon General which the Republicans have been stalling at the request of the National Rifle Association since February. So, the Republican’s idea of how to practice medicine is to listen to the National Rifle Association. I discount everything they say, they know nothing. They’re not interested in health; they’re interested in politics.
someone did this to my english teacher’s poster of shakespeare last year and she still hasn’t changed it
Me: Lorelai, are you serious? You’re going to get back on and do it again even though you just fell off? Look at you, your face hurts because you fell on your face and you’re really going to get up there again? Are you even real life?
Ah, life with a toddler.
whisperedgalaxies said: Re: Swearing in America We don't have the most variation in our swearing, whereas a lot of other languages have swears that capture more levels of intensity that just doesn't translate. The interesting thing about "fuck" though is it is just so flexible (in american dialects). You can use it as nearly every part of speech. As a result, however, we don't use much else. As a reader from America, the use of swears in American Gods sounded very natural to me. -A linguistics major
I agree. The glory of fuck is all the things you can do with it and all the things it can do. It’s an unbefuckinglievably useful swear word (used just there as an expletive infixation).
Except that “unbefuckinglievably” is actually is actually a really unusual form of that particular infix—to such an extent, that most English speakers would think it was wrong if they heard it said out loud. The version usually heard is “unfuckingbelievably.” There are a bunch of theories why this is (morpheme boundaries, prosody, stress patterns), but whatever rule it follows does seem to actually be pretty strict.
Seriously. Say the first out loud. It just doesn’t work.
Well, lots of people use it. Here are the Wiktionary citations for Unbefuckinglievable and its variants.
Fuck, I love the internet sometimes. Goodnight.
I can’t believe this is real, but it is
tbh i thought this was a really neat idea for a dystopia or something until i realized what was allegorical by seeing the picture and getting a connection there. i was just so blind that this could be as stupid as it was i took it literally or as a classism stance for a minute. this is so dehumanizing i didn’t realize they were comparing women to food, what the fuck
Not only are they comparing women to food, they’re basically saying women’s bodies are a luxury ITEM.
And that men are entitled to any woman’s body they desire.
It’s bad when even 4chan thinks you’re gross.
they think they are being “denied” something.
Not to mention food is a fucking necessity to live. Having access to women’s bodies is not
In case anyone’s forgotten, this was Isla Vista shooter Elliot Rodgers’ entire reasoning for his shooting spree: that he was being unfairly denied access to women’s bodies.
In addition to the excellent commentary above (women: autonomous people, not consumables! touching boobs: not vital to staying alive!), in the original fucker’s “thought experiment” (pro tip: any time anyone uses the phrase “let’s try a thought experiment” they’re about to be an asshole), people are waving their food around. Except the food is boobs. People have very little control over whether they get boobs and how much they get. If you have them, it is difficult to hide or remove them. Having breasts is not a “luxury item” that you’re “waving around” in people’s faces. They’re a body part, and they’re there. This is the same mentality that shames young girls with sexist dress codes, the same mentality that blames rape victims for what they were wearing, and the same mentality that excuses street harassment. It is rape culture.
