if ur not boycotting urban outfitters after this i dont want to talk to youimage

if you’ve ever not been boycotting urban outfitters i don’t want to talk to you

i mean it’s sold racist games and costumes in the past, a transphobic card (warning for slurs), stolen from artists, and appropriated countless cultures and now this

urban outfitters is disgusting tbh 

Don’t forget that Richard Hayne, the CEO of Urban Outfitters (who also owns Free People and Anthropologie) is a right-wing conservative who donated thousands of dollars to Rick Santorum’s presidential campaign.

yo, if you can afford to boycott clothing brands because you have a lot of choices and/or a lot of money, please do boycott urban outfitters

if you can’t (because you have less money or fewer choices or because you work there because the economy is hard and you need to find work where you can get it and you need to wear your employer’s clothes), please don’t feel bad for not being able to

This Artist Gustavo Silva Nuñez Not Only Creates Incredible Paintingsof Swimmers, He Also Interacts with Them!

Gustavo Silva Nuñez is a Venezuela-based artist who not only creates incredibly realistic paintings of swimmers, but also pose with them (mostly while creating them) in such a way that makes it seem like he’s actually interacting with the person in the painting.

How. This is incredible.

I ain’t even realize it was a painting at first…

Do you think Kanye humiliated the paraplegics or was it an honest mistake and ppl are over reacting?

Anytime anything involves Kanye West, the media is going to overreact and turn it into something else. 

Case in point. Kanye has made it a custom to stop the music and talk to the crowd at his concerts. Sometimes its about serious topics, sometimes its positive and uplifting, sometimes its just whatever. 

But no matter WHAT he says, it’s automatically labeled a “rant”. I remember the other week he stopped his concert to give an update on the new yeezy shoes and someone uploaded the video to YouTube. The video was “Kanye Rant: Yeezy Updates”

The man wasn’t ranting about shoes. When you automatically label someone’s word as a “Rant” no matter what they say, you’re subtly discrediting them painting them as unstable. 

But anyway, back to the subject at hand. If you really watched the video you’ll see Kanye ask everyone in the stadium to stand up. When Kanye saw some people weren’t standing, he asked why and the crowd told him they were disabled. So he said “aight cool” and then started the song. 

That’s all that happened. 

Somehow that turned into “Kanye Berates Man In Wheelchair For Not Standing” in the media.

My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.

I have read so many bits of conflicting information on this, so I thought I'd ask you: Is it safe to have sex during pregnancy? And if so, up to what point? I've also heard that having sex can help bring on labor... is this true? Thank you!

Unless you have a specific complication that your doctors/midwives have talked to you about, it is definitely safe to have sex during pregnancy.

Rules to live by:

  • Use condoms if you don’t know your partner’s STI status - new STI infections during pregnancy are much more dangerous for the fetus.
  • Stop if you have any discomfort.
  • Stop if you have any bleeding and call your practitioner right away.
  • Read this post of mine suggesting good sex positions during pregnancy.
  • Reasons why not to have sex during pregnancy: previous miscarriage, previous preterm labor, low placenta or placenta previa, unexplained bleeding, or your practitioner told you not to.
  • Orgasm can bring on labor at the end of pregnancy.  This can be a problem or it can be used as a tool.  Call your practitioner if you start experiencing regular contractions after orgasm.
  • Semen can be used to bring on labor when ejaculated onto the cervix.  Again - no messing around with STIs.  Don’t have unprotected sex unless you know your partner’s STI status.

A German midwife that I worked with way back would send her over-due patients home with a prescription for doggy-style sex 3 times a day.  I tend to explain to my patient that they don’t have to do it in any particular position or nearly that rigorously, but I like to explain how it can help.

I think the way the Circle kids all become famous mages at fourteen is incredibly unrealistic. In fact, most of Tammy’s heroines end up becoming renowned. What sort of message does that send to children - that fame is the only goal worth pursuing?

But except for Alanna, who wanted to be reknowned like the lady knight heroes, none of them want to be famous!  For Aly it’s downright detrimental; for Tris and Beka it’s something they never wanted; for Daja, Briar, Daine, Sandry, Kel, and Evvy, it gets in the way of the important things that require doing.  Except for Alanna, none of them want to be famed; they just want to be good at the things they love.

this is what i just picked up from the grocery store. it cost $32. Thirty. two. dollars. for 1 pineapple, 2 bags of grapes, a small container of raspberries, 1 soft drink and 2/$1 nuts…. 

do you know how much junk food i could have for $32? do you have any clue how much McDonald’s you can get for $32?

stop shaming fat people poorer than you or people poorer than you in general for not eating healthier. stop lying about how cheap it is or how it’s comparable to fast food. just stop.

!!!!!!!

THIS IS SOME GRADE-A BULLSHIT. GRAPES COST TYPICALLY $2-$3 A POUND, SO THAT LOOKS LIKE ABOUT $6 WORTH OF GRAPES, PINEAPPLES ARE ABOUT $3-$5 DEPENDING ON THE TIME OF YEAR, RASBERRIES COST ABOUT $3 A CONTAINER, PLUS THE NUTS WHICH WERE A $1, AND THE DRINK PROB COST $2.
Now, lets do some math…………… 6+3+3+1+2=15.

Morons. Try again. 

Ummmm food does not cost the same across the US and stop using ableist slurs jfc

^^^^

Acting like 15 dollars ain’t a lot I can eat fast food for like 3 days on $15

As a paranormal/horror blogger I can assure you these child abuse ads are the most scariest and saddest thing I’ve ever seen. Probably because things like that are happening RIGHT NOW at this very INSTANT. 

And it’s horrifying but hopefully these ads bring more attention towards it. 

I got these from this buzzfeed article. You can view more ads and the sources for these ads there as well. 

powerful

so important.
