getting pretty sick of waking up every morning and hearing about how the ruling elites (usually the Liberal party) have decided to fuck the country over today 

i used to be into social justice because it was, y’know, the right thing to do, and because i had an actual fucktonne of privilege that other people didn’t have and i could see the blatant unfairness in that 

this new raft of ~changes~ the government wants to see in is more likely than not going to put me in actual poverty. my parents can help me out and i’ll still be better off than millions upon millions of people, but it’s weird for me to think that at least part of the reason i’m opposed to things like GP co-contributions and ‘tightening’ of welfare eligibility is because it’s actually going to negatively affect me personally. idk. i still have an actual fucktonne of privilege and that’s not going to change because it comes from static stuff but if my life is going to be made harder by these changes then you can bet your arse that everyone else will be even worse off as well. i don’t understand this incessant need to suck money from people who are already dirt poor, instead of taking money away from people who probably won’t even notice that it’s gone. it makes me so fucking angry.

do you ever feel like there’s just so many pretty girls but most dudes are just subpar like there are radiant goddesses everywhere and just piles and piles of guys in backwards baseball caps and sandals

it’s called makeup

you can put eyeliner on a frat boy that doesn’t change the fact that’s he’s wearing a neon muscle shirt and nike flip flops

It’s almost like we live in a society where all women are expected to be beautiful and can’t be successful otherwise but where men aren’t required to even think about their looks.

Africa’s mineral wealth and abundant natural resources are no secret. What we also know of much of these commodities is that, in many African countries, the profits yielded from the industries established with the purpose of securing the wealth and inheritance of the citizens of these nations, more often than not, end up in the hands of greedy politicians, easily bribed leaders, and in the pockets of the mostly foreign multinational CEOs and the companies they work for.

For decades, this has been the narrative of a dire situation that only seems to be worsening, and having equally devastating effects in both the lives of those who live in these areas, and the environment surrounding them.

Nigerian photographer, George Osodi, who comes from Nigeria’s oil rich southeastern Niger Delta region, has seen firsthand just how disastrous and traumatic the exploitation of these communities and the natural resources in these regions they occupy can be. These images show two specific areas where these distressing conditions have become the norm - in Nigeria’s Niger Delta region, and in an illegal gold mine in Ghana.

I haven’t actually watched the most recent ep of new Game of Thrones but I’ve gathered that they made the Cersei/Jaime post-Joffrey’s-death sex scene a rape scene… It’s been a while since I read the books, but wasn’t it *Jaime* who, in the books, wasn’t keen on sleeping with Cersei after he came back from his hand-amputating adventures? I could’ve sworn it was Jaime who was all like ‘hey our illegitimate son was just murdered I don’t think now is a great time to bang’……. 

But even if I’m wrong about this one the other points being made about turning consensual sex in the books into rape in the show are completely legit.

"Masculinity is a trait, not a gender"

In an effort to both allocate space for and document the existence of masculine women, photographer Meg Allen created a powerful series of portraits for an exhibit at Cafe Gabriela in Oakland, Calif.

Entitled BUTCH, Allen’s series not only represents genderqueer women for a broader, heteronormative audience, but reaffirms butch identity within the queer community at a time when “butch flight,” or gender transitioning, is arguably becoming more and more commonplace. It is, as Allen says on her website, “an homage to the bull-daggers and female husbands before me, and to the young studs, gender queers and bois who continue to bloom into the present.”

These are some good looking folks

This is all I have ever wanted to see. My butch friends may sometimes get “Why don’t you just become a man?” in the same way folks would tell me “Why don’t you just be a butch lesbian?” Because masculinity and gender identity are two totally separate bubbles, that for some become a venn diagram, and for others, coexist peacefully inside of us.

Two things can exist independently, and coexist peacefully. Gender identity and masculinity/femininity/androgyny.

keep in mind many men don’t really like women, they like the high regard afforded them by other men when seen with a certain kind of woman. they like the confirmations of their masculinity and sexual prowess when engaging physically with a woman, and they like the ego boost of being attractive to many women. but they do. not. like. women.

An Englishman, a Frenchman, a Spaniard and a German are all standing watching a street performer do some excellent juggling. The juggler notices that the four gentlemen have a very poor view, so he stands up on a large wooden box and calls out, “Can you all see me now?”

“Yes.”
“Oui.”
“Sí.”
“Ja.”

Took me about ten minutes to finally understand this

stupidest/most awesome joke ever
