Since it’s summer and this mindset begins to pop up more, let us clarify something.
Girls being upset over being seen in bra/panties but not bikinis is not a double standard.
If she’s in a bikini, it’s what she consciously chose to wear and be seen in, in a public space, and like any outfit she was prepared to be seen in it by other people.
If you’ve caught a girl in her underwear, however, you’re probably trespassing in her bedroom, bathroom, or other personal space, where she should be in privacy, and she has every right to be upset if that privacy is violated.
It’s not about what she’s wearing or what it is covering, but rather her privacy and consent to be seen in the first place. Please respect that.
Omg, amazing that someone thought to explain this
About time a cyclops set that porpoise straight
THIS. FUCKING THIS THIS THIS
in addition: don’t tell us you’re underage if you’re reading our porn, because that totally fucks us over legally. we cannot be deliberately and knowingly providing obscene material to minors, and if you think about it laws like that are good and exist for good reasons. but still, please be responsible enough to keep us safe like we’re trying to keep you safe.
This goes hand-in-hand with “if you’re at barstuck and aren’t 21 please don’t” but it’s far more serious. This is not about how “mature” you feel or “age is a number.” This is about legality and trying to keep ourselves, our lives and our jobs safe, and letting us try to keep you safe.
I’m sure its been pointed out but if you are underage and posting nude photos of yourself online you can also be charged for distributing the images. It’s just a bad idea in every conceivable way.
i hate the whole oppression works both way thing because like
if you go up to your boss and say “YOU’RE A FUCKING IDIOT! YOU’RE FIRED!” nothing happens to your boss because you are not in a position to do anything to her. If she goes, “NO, YOU’RE FIRED.” then you are out on your ass and unemployed. You both said the same thing, but its effects were COMPLETELY different, because of the POSITIONS OF POWER.
I really like this metaphor. It’s succinct and easy to relate to and to understand.
To add a layer to this fantastic metaphor? You don’t even have to go up to your boss and say “you’re a fucking idiot”. You can just go up and say ANYTHING your boss doesn’t like, even if it was totally correct and called for, and BAM! you can be fired.
Meanwhile, your boss can scream obscenities at you, steal from you, lie about you, make insults about you, enlist others in harassing you, give others things that belong to you, take tools or things you need to do your job, cut your pay, keep you from promotions you’ve earned, and give you an unfair workload and then yell at you for not keeping up with people who have a third of your work and twice the help in doing it. They can launch what would only be called a campaign of Fuck You Fucker against you. They don’t have to yell.
And SHIT ALL happens negatively to the boss. They just walk around smug and smiling, feeling like they’re a good person just for letting you walk in the door and if you should - after all this bullshit - give them an ugly look and say they’re being hateful they have the gall to gasp, purse clutch and say, “You wouldn’t like it if I called you hateful. No one should be called hateful. We’re all human! No one should get to call anyone hateful! Oh, BTW, YOU’RE FIRED GOOD LUCK FINDING WAYS TO SURVIVE NOW.”
TL;DR: Original metaphor is awesome. Don’t worry about my commentary if you don’t want.
will you marry me = a marriage proposal
will, you, Mary, me = a foursome proposal
Will you, Mary me = Cavewoman Mary helps Will recover from his Amnesia
Will, you marry me. = Will’s time-traveling partner
And people keep trying to tell me that punctuation isn’t important
u ever look at pics of ur bf/gf and be like

5 of the Creepiest Sites You’ll Visit Today
1. Neave.tv - The page is titled “Television Without Context” and features a constant loop of videos ranging from bizarre security camera scenes to voiced-over cartoons.
2. Sentimental Corp - The homepage alone will leave you wondering if you should go further. If you want to be confused and slightly disturbed, then the answer is yes. The gif-like icons at the top of the page redirect viewers to pages such as “Goat Worship”, which features a 30+ minute video of a demonic Ronald McDonald.
3. MarbleHornets - An introduction video plays automatically, explaining the story of a young filmmaker named Alex. Alex was working on a project when he suddenly dropped it and requested that the types be burned. He later disappeared. The channel owner posts various video entries that were left behind by Alex.
4. The Dionaea House - The site’s owner, Eric, has posted the lengthy, super creepy email correspondences between himself and a friend (Mark) who receives word that their old friend Andrew was involved in a murder-suicide. Mark timelines his investigation of their hometown and the house that he believes drove Andrew insane. (I highly recommend reading these.)

the university of illinois at urbana is trying to get surgery and hormone treatment for trans ppl included in their student health insurance but there’s some pushback from the board of trustees so if you have a moment please sign and signal boost the petition for its inclusion!
ok tumbly, so the situation is this:
one of my friends was going to cover my top surgery, but unfortunately her situation got bad, things have fallen through, and now i’ve got a surgery date on June 10th i can’t afford to make many payments on.
i will probably cover at least part of it with a student loan, but as of right now i’ve got about $5,000 to cover. i’m already a little over $500 deep in this thing, and it’s not refundable.
i know everyone makes begging posts asking for money for top surgery, but i may as well add my voice to the throng asking for anything to help pay it off. even cutting another $500 off the cost would be helpful, so if anyone wants to toss a few bucks my way, you will have my eternal gratitude and if you ever wind up near me, i will cook you some amazing goddamned macaroni and cheese. the good stuff from scratch, not prepackaged shit.
i’m already in the hole with student debt and would rather not climb in farther, but it is what it is, shit happens, and i can’t afford to cancel the surgery date.
my paypal button is at the bottom of my blog if you feel like tossing me any spare change.
