So… I know it’s been a while since I posted. Since this is gonna be long, I spared you the scrolling and threw it under a read more.
While I lend some credence to the ‘You only see people you have seen before in dreams’ theory, I think the brain is far to complex to limit it as such. If it can convince me into thinking my grandmother’s house has a raised porch (it didn’t) and that I can be there and at my own home at the same time, then I certainly think it can make people up.
Anyway, have fun reading. It gets creepy. I wish I could make this stuff up.Posted on November 21, 2013 at 2:52 PM
all the criticism miley has been is pretty telling. very few comments about her casual racism….and yet a megaclusterfuckingTON of outrage about how she expresses her sexuality, how she dances, her hair, her ass, etc
here are some valid criticisms of miley:
- she uses black women as accessories
- she has claimed twerking as her own
- she portrays black women as animals
here are some invalid criticisms of miley:
- she’s acting like a slut/ho/whore/trash
- she’s disappointing her father
- her ass is too small
This whole entire argument is ridiculous in my opinion. No one has a right to ‘invalidate’ other’s opinions. I wish we would all stop bitching about Miley and actually address the issues like adults instead of saying ‘no, YOUR argument is wrong.’ Some of the above is true and should be noted, but frankly I think some of it is off the mark.
Here’s what she did wrong in my eyes:
- Used all black dancers in teddy bear costumes, treating them like objects.
- Blatantly sexualized a burlesque dancer by smacking her and treating her like an object. She deserved more respect than that.
- Treated teddy bears and such as ‘sexy’ things. A coworker of mine pointed out that this could easily lead confused teens to seek out similar images with underage girls; something that lands them on the sex-offender list for life.
- Worked with Robin Thicke to present an over-sexualized dance on public TV. They’re both to blame for the second half of Miley’s act, and anyone who pretends otherwise is ridiculous. There is a way to do sexy and have it be classy.
- Not respecting herself enough that she has to go so far to distance herself from the ‘Teen Disney Good Girl’ look.
Her father may be disappointed in all of this. I would be if she was my kid. Slut-shaming is wrong, but so is trying so hard to be a bad girl just because you spent so long being the perfect Disney teen idol.
The reason women who are strong, beautiful, and sexy (Beyonce, Rihanna, Lady Gaga to name a few) are idolized so much is because they’re able to respect themselves. It’s easy to see when that’s not the case. It’s a shame she chose to present herself in such a light and didn’t choose instead to show how confident and independent she can be. Sexual appeal will come with time, but not if you force it. To end my point, I give you one of my favorite Audrey Hepburn quotes:
"There is more to sex appeal than just measurements. I don’t need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much sex appeal, picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain."Posted on August 27, 2013 at 5:13 PM
so in case you didn’t know, abortion is illegal in ireland. there’s this horrible pro-life group called Youth Defence whose ad campaigns are unbelievably insensitive (and cite incorrect facts) and this was their latest shock tactic.
they parked their van in front of the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre.
let me say that again
THEY PARKED THEIR VAN IN FRONT OF THE DUBLIN RAPE CRISIS CENTRE.
when confronted about it, they tweeted this:
they also deleted their first tweet (“Our driver was stuck in traffic, we wern’t parked there, more lies from pro-aborts. #loveforall”)
I FEEL PHYSICALLY SICK. you evil fucking human beings.
outside a RAPE CRISIS CENTRE.

Can we please make people aware of this? Ireland and northern Ireland needs support from all you babes!!!
I wondered what all these ads were while we were visiting. They seemed insensitive and thought up by complete twats. Turns out that is completely true. What jackasses. I know it won’t do much, but I’ll spread the signal boost along because even as an outsider, these ads were fucking horrible.

Hello all, so this is my dad, and he’s planning on cosplaying as Rescue Captain America at San Diego Comic-Con this year.
Here’s the problem: He’s 53 and he thinks he might be too old to cosplay. In addition, he thinks he’s not buff/handsome enough to pull it off a Captain America costume. So even though he’s put a ton of work into his cosplay, he’s thinking about not taking any of it with us.
I’ve set out to prove him wrong, so tumblr, please help me show this retired Air Force officer that he makes a great Captain America!
Your dad is awesome and cosplay is for everyone!
I WISH either of my parents cosplayed and they’re older than 53. YOU GO. Rock that cosplay!
I hope your dad is single. Not for me (I’m not single, and I’m in NYC, anyhow), but for his own sake because he is going to get hit on something fierce.
He looks awesome in his costume and out of it. I mean, in his costume and in his regular clothes. Shut up.
Your father looks very handsome, both in costume and in regular clothes as well! His work on this cosplay is stunning, and it’d be such a shame not to share this with others. You don’t have to be very young to have fun or be admired for hard work (or to be a hero ;D)! I’d be in line for a picture if i could attend! So much respect. <3
Your dad is not only awesome for pulling together a decidedly rad costume but also for wanting to put himself out there to do this. There is no ‘age range’ for cosplay in my opinion. As long as you care about what you’ve done and you’re proud, that makes you a cosplayer. This is amazing work that he’s done and he should be proud to wear it.
It’s pretty damn cool that he would pull this together and I hope 80,000+ notes and words of encouragement help motivate him to show off his work to SDCC. Rock on, awesome dad, and thank you for your service not only to the cosplay community but more importantly to our country.

OMG REBLOG THIS & LOOK AT UR BLOG ITS COMPLETELY DIFERENT
I was expecting porn to show up on my blog but it’s not thank god
Recently, your mother and I were searching for an answer on Google. Halfway through entering the question, Google returned a list of the most popular searches in the world. Perched at the top of the list was “How to keep him interested.”
It startled me. I scanned several of the countless articles about how to be sexy and sexual, when to bring him a beer versus a sandwich, and the ways to make him feel smart and superior.
And I got angry.
Little One, it is not, has never been, and never will be your job to “keep him interested.”
Little One, your only task is to know deeply in your soul—in that unshakeable place that isn’t rattled by rejection and loss and ego—that you are worthy of interest. (If you can remember that everyone else is worthy of interest also, the battle of your life will be mostly won. But that is a letter for another day.)
If you can trust your worth in this way, you will be attractive in the most important sense of the word: you will attract a boy who is both capable of interest and who wants to spend his one life investing all of his interest in you.
Little One, I want to tell you about the boy who doesn’t need to be kept interested, because he knows you are interesting:
I don’t care if he puts his elbows on the dinner table—as long as he puts his eyes on the way your nose scrunches when you smile. And then can’t stop looking.
I don’t care if he can’t play a bit of golf with me—as long as he can play with the children you give him and revel in all the glorious and frustrating ways they are just like you.
I don’t care if he doesn’t follow his wallet—as long as he follows his heart and it always leads him back to you.
I don’t care if he is strong—as long as he gives you the space to exercise the strength that is in your heart.
I couldn’t care less how he votes—as long as he wakes up every morning and daily elects you to a place of honor in your home and a place of reverence in his heart.
I don’t care about the color of his skin—as long as he paints the canvas of your lives with brushstrokes of patience, and sacrifice, and vulnerability, and tenderness.
I don’t care if he was raised in this religion or that religion or no religion—as long as he was raised to value the sacred and to know every moment of life, and every moment of life with you, is deeply sacred.
In the end, Little One, if you stumble across a man like that and he and I have nothing else in common, we will have the most important thing in common:
Because in the end, Little One, the only thing you should have to do to “keep him interested” is to be you.
Your eternally interested guy,

I have to say this is completely legit - someone tried to steal her handbag and she simply went “Fuck this- *suplex*”
someone teach me this pweeze-ooc
Ok Ladies, here’s the info on this move.
We are blessed with a low center of gravity. This means that when we get ahold of someone and tip over backward like that, it’s easy peasy for us to do. Especially on a guy. Think of it like a fulcum and lever: they’re the lever, we’re the fulcrum, and because their center of gravity is up in their chest, instead of in their pelvis, when we get down low and lean back, whupsy there they tip right over.
Now, here’s the real deal on that particular move. Check out how this gif end, with the guy’s head on the floor like that? How his torso seems straight up and down, his head and neck on the floor, all his body weight and the momentum of having been tossed over her shoulder?
Yeah, he’s pretty messed up from that. In the really real world, if you do that move correctly, toss your whole body into it, seriously oomph it up and give that mugger a throw, you can snap his neck.
All that said, here’s how you do it!
This is something you do fast, ladies. Move quickly and with assurance, and don’t worry about whether you’re strong enough to do it or not: you are. This is about physics, not muscle.
Get low, bend your knees and hips. Our strength is largly concentrated in our lower bodies, and when we put our knees and thighs into a move, we bring some of the largest muscles in the human body to bear. You’d be surprised what you can move with your legs.
When she got low on him, her right arm was around his waist, her shoulder roughly at or under his ass, her left arm wrapped around his left leg. Feet shoulder width apart for a nice stable base, big deep breath in, and lift just a bit while falling backwards. It doesn’t take much strength but it will really mess with the dude’s day. Landing on your head will at the very very least knock you silly for a minute.
Interestingly, we can use these same basic principles to ruin a guy’s day if he’s the one to grab us! Imagine, if you will, mugger dude runs up behind you and bear hugs you in preparation for dragging you into the alley. Scary, right? Yep.
If he lifts you too fast, and you find your feet off the ground, kick him in the shins, scrape your shoes down his legs, aim for the knees and his feet. Toss your head back and head butt him. Bite him. Squirm. Do what it takes to get your feet back on the ground.
Feet on the ground, grab his arms and hold on to them. Don’t let him get away, because this move, ladies, will put him down and out, and if he moves away he may go for a distance weapon, or start using his fists. Hold onto his arms and keep him in close.
Again, feet shoulder width apart. Use your booty and hips now, like you’re trying to hit his not-so-manly bits with your ass, get your hips back, bend your knees and flex your hips. If he’s shortish, you should at this point have picked him up and be balancing him on your back. If he’s tall, you’re now in position to put a crimp in his style in a big way.
Tuck your head to your chest and roll forward, just like you did when you were a kid. Flip yourself forward and let gravity do the rest. You will have your head tucked down, aiming to land on the upper back of one shoulder; he won’t. This means he’ll land on his face, with the full force of his own body weight behind it as well as any momentum you’ve built up. You may very well land on top of him too.
From here, get up, run like hell towards a light source while yelling “help, fire, call 911 (or whatever emergency services number exists in your country)”
Remember, ladies, with just a little understanding of comparative anatomy and physics, you too can put a man on the ground and seriously mess up his day. But then, that’s what he was planning to do to you, so fair’s fair.
Reblogging again because of Gryphyn’s awesome comment. C:
THIS IS AWESOME.
