Think about a horse sitting down like a dog and tell me that isn’t really funny

I came across an article from the Advocate today called “Is the T Word the New N Word?”


PSA: the word tr*nny and the n word are NOT the same. The notion that it’s the “new n word” also implies that racism and the harmful use of the n word is no longer an issue in society. So no. The T Word is not the New N Word.

Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year. 

When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.

But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)

At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.  

Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”

Amen to that, Hugh.

please tag your porn for christs sake 

Please, this is just “Intro to Porn, Dean 101. If it was real porn, we’d have seen him to the navel. (as we have seen Sam and Dark Angel versions of skinnier, less muscled JA) And why we didn’t is just plain cruel. Though last two shots could be pre-porn, a higher level than “intro to.” Turn on the fans. I mean initiate electricity into devices that cool the skin.

nine photographs portraying quotes said to sexual assault survivors by police officers, attorneys, and other authority figures

more info about project unbreakable here

original tumblr here

previously: nine photographs portraying quotes said to sexual assault survivors by their friends/family

These photos make me cringe.

These photo’s make me upset and angry. 

I am filled with such a violent rage. This is why I believe vigilantes need to exist. Because rape culture causes justice to rarely be served.
