Listening to music that was really important to me...
If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the...– Desmond Tutu (via epicstratton)
detroitlives: I am speechless. I am mostly against the Robocop statue, but this is an interesting take on it. And funny.
I have recently lost quite a few followers.
This doesn’t bother me, as the majority of them are thirteen year old girls who “dont care if you judge me,” “<3 <3 <3 JESUS,” and have a moving background with music that automatically starts playing. It’s funny how posting about atheism has never seemed to lose me followers, but women’s rights/feminism and they can’t unfollow me fast...
Jon Stewart and Kristen Schaal give examples of...
KRISTEN: Our taxes are going to abortions in ways no one is even talking about.
JON: Well, let's talk about it now. How?
KRISTEN: Well, for starters, we have to cut funding for fire departments.
JON: Why would that be?
KRISTEN: Helllloooo? What if an abortion clinic catches fire, and firefighters put it out, paving the way for more abortions? Abortionist firefighters, paid for with our taxpayer dollars.
JON: Well that's like saying we need to de-fund the Coast Guard because abortion providers go to the beach.
KRISTEN: I hadn't even thought of that. But you're right -- no more Coast Guard! Give me another. This is fun.
KRISTEN: Mile-High Club. Number one cause of unwanted pregnancies between Newark and LAX.
JON: Mining Safety Commission.
KRISTEN: Mile-BELOW Club.
JON: Library of Congress.
KRISTEN: Sexy librarians.
KRISTEN: Space abortions!
JON: Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
KRISTEN: Jon, please. I'm getting pregnant just listening to you.
This week I am going to do EVERYTHING.
It’s going to be amazing. Just watch.

markcoatney: To be fair, those public broadcasters can’t play Sousa for shit.
To bath or shower, that is the question.
For now I will just eat snacks.

lazybookreviews: The only reading material more depressing than the “wet houses” article! No, I mean, FOR SERIOUS. My dad and I read it constantly, because it’s also really good, but you do want to set yourself on fire afterward. And then, you know, the novel is semi-autobiographical, which makes EVERYTHING WORSE. Did you know this guy’s poor mother was told childbirth would cure her...
Wearing the same thing I wore last night, and then...
Probably not going to change.

standupforwomen: I am a Canadian and found myself pregnant in college after having just started dating someone new. I gave myself a week to weigh my options, and finally decided to have an abortion. I made my appointment, and would be going the following week. When I got there, no one was picketing, which I appreciated. However that did very little to calm my nerves and I vomited in the...
Veggie Stew with Dumplings →
I’m going to make this for dinner tonight. I haven’t had dumplings in years.
I didn't get that job. They were going to hire me,...
I feel terrible. I barely slept. I was so excited that something new and good was finally going to happen. At least they are interested in hiring me when the freeze is lifted, but that probably won’t be for a few more months. So maybe I will be able to find something else… I think this would be a good time to go on vacation somewhere. I need a goddamn vacation.
The Sexual Cost of Female Success →
syntheticpubes: “Women are all clearly so desperate for a man, any man, that they should automatically lick the Tevas of the first grad student who talks smack to them about the kinds of guys they actually like.” Sarcasm! Is! Best!

People can be so dumb.
I wish they would stop doing that.
I MIGHT HAVE A JOB SOON
Having a One-Year Stand →
“It’s hard to understand why our feelings can be so ephemeral and betray us so often. You’d like to think you could love a certain someone just because they’re nice and cook you spaghetti and play the right Miles Davis song when you’re ready to have sex, but it’s never that simple.”
I know older men in comedy who can barely feed and clean themselves, and they...– Tina Fey in this week’s New Yorker. (via fatmanatee) Damn Tina Fey, you are amazing.
Context and Variation: Iron-deficiency anemia is... →
librariansoul: When I was thirteen years old, I got my period. Soon after, I remember going with my mother to the nurse practitioner’s office — her name was Debbie. Debbie told me that once girls got their periods, they were more likely to be anemic, and I would have to watch out for it. She suggested I start to take an iron supplement. Something about that conversation irked me, even when I...
