That story about a 27 year-old Jay Z plotting on Beyonce when she was 16 is weird, in every other scenario he’d be viewed as a pedophile. But since it’s Hova …

and that’s how a lot of pedophiles get away with it is by using their public respectable image and money to seem super-normal

it’s always disturbed me tbfh

That is fucked up

Quote 18 Sep 93 notes
What’s truly necessary is for white people to have hard conversations about injustice with other white people, not gratuitous arguments but challenges that count. I once sat aghast and silent at a dinner table as a white NYPD cop who worked in the Bronx and a white millionaire who was partly raised by servants of color found common ground in jokes about black incarceration and undocumented Latinos—jokes that reflected real choices they would likely make in their lives, choices that would actually hurt people. In retrospect, their racist solidarity and my silence were all one; silence like mine is what makes this kind of lethal solidarity possible.
— Briallen Hopper: White People Problems | Killing the Buddha

You know how sometimes a piece comes along just when you need to read it? This is very good and sobering, in light of the privilege of silence/tight-lipped “I don’t want to get into this” smiles/and deciding to “talk with them about it when the time is right”, which few of us (self included) are immune to.

Anonymous said: James sexually assaulted Snape?

parryhotterman:

shady-brain-farm:

He forced him into a position where he couldn’t get away (levicorpus) then took off his clothes in front of an audience.

Forcing someone naked against their will, even if it’s done for humiliation reasons rather than sexual gratification, is 100% sexual assault.

He technically did it twice.  The first time his drawers/boxers were showing/was the equivalent of pantsing (the time when James was trying to force Lily go out with him in order to put him down*).  

When she left after ripping James a new one, they lifted him back in the air and that’s when he asked “HURR HURR WHO WANTS TO SEE…”

(Harry didn’t see the entire memory, but since Lily had left Severus after his outburst/her rant, he had no one at all to defend him, so we know where that ”challenge” went.)

*I’d nearly forgotten how vile James was.  He pulled the whole “I’ll stop bullying him if you go out with me!” crap during that incident.  People like him don’t unlearn that shit—they modify their methods.  So guess what…he made sure Lily never saw any of his bullshit and claimed he’d stopped picking on Severus so she’d go out with him.  And we know from canon that he never stopped.  Who’s the “toolshed” now?

Anti-trans trolling spree forces Wikipedia to ban U.S. House staffers for third time
Aug. 21 2014
Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, has once again blocked all computers from the U.S. House of Representatives in order to stop malicious edits to popular pages on the site.
According to The Hill, Wikipedia instituted the ban on Wednesday night after users operating from the House IP address made a series of anti-trans edits to the page for Netflix series Orange is the New Black.
Anonymous users operating from the Republican-led House were persistently re-editing the page to slur trans actress Laverne Cox by mis-gendering her mentions on the show’s page. For instance, they changed Cox’s description from “real transgender woman” to “real man pretending to be a woman.”
One user in particular went on an anti-trans editing spree this week, changing entries on multiple pages related to transgenderism until Wikipedia administrators were forced to step in.
“An obvious transphobe is using this IP to edit the article on transphobia,” the Hill quoted one Wikipedia user as saying.
“I have no problem with Congressional staffers editing Wikipedia,” said another user to the anti-trans editor. “I have a problem only with YOU vandalizing Wikipedia.”
The person using the IP address responded — without revealing their identity — that the malicious edits were in fact “official business” endorsed by a member of the House. Their changes, they said, were intended to bring “fairness” to the discussion.

and these are the fucking children that run our country. this is despicable.

These are also the people earning six figure salaries off your tax dollars while pissing and moaning how they think the poor don’t deserve “handouts.”


I feel sick.

This is a map of Asia. North Americans, you may notice this map is not solely comprised of Japan, Korea, China and Thailand. People in the UK, you may notice India is not  a continent. That is, if those of you who generalize entire continents can even pinpoint India on a map. 
Indians are Asian, gasp! And not all brown skinned people are Indian, also, gasp! There are an alarming amount of people, of all ages, from all backgrounds, who seem to be unable to process this.
I’m ethnically Asian. Since Asia is an extremely large continent, I could be from any number of countries. I am neither from India, China, Korea, Japan or Pakistan, yet not so surprisingly, I am still Asian. 
Yes, there are commonalities across regions, through the conflation of cultures, colonialism, globalization, transnationalism and movement of diasporas. Sometimes these are all the same thing. Rickshaws, rice and curry can be found across the continent.
But let’s not overgeneralize. You can also find Buddhists, Catholics, Muslims and Hindus across Asia. Cantonese Speaking Chinese Muslims! English Speaking Indian Jews! 
No, we are not all the same. Orientalism? (Please look up Edward Said for basic concepts) No thank you. 
So let’s not use umbrella terms, regarding Asians as a monolith while simultaneously denying the regional identity of millions of people- and how about we also not engage in xenophobia? 
Are you someone that thinks this way? Shame on you! You should perhaps invest in buying a map, and take a look at what countries are you know, where. 
Geography, people. It’s important. 

For anyone out there who might not be able to see this image, it is a coloured map showing Northern Asia, Central Asia, Western Asia, Eastern Asia, Southern Asia, and South-Eastern Asia. 
Central Asia consists of Afghanistan (debated), Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. 
Eastern Asia consists of China, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, Mongolia, North Korea, South Korea, and Taiwan. 
Northern Asia consists of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Russia.
South Asia consists of Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. 
South-Eastern Asia consists on Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Brunei, Cambodia, Christmas Island, Cocos Islands, East Timor, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar (Burma), Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam. 
Western Asia consists of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Cyprus, Egypt (debated), Georgia, Iran (debated), Iraq, Israel, Joran, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.

Bless. It is ridiculous the amount of times I have literally ARGUED with people who tell me I am not ‘really asian.’ As if Russia and Georgia aren’t in asia.
I do not look east asian. I am not chinese or japanese. Still very much asian. ‘Asian’ isn’t one, single ethnicity. It is an entire continent with MANY ethnic groups.
Not being a short, straight haired east asian does not mean we are not ‘really asian’.
Additionally, applying asian chinese stereotypes to me drives me insane because WE ARE NOTHING LIKE THE CHINESE. Hell, applying chinese stereotypes to the CHINESE is ridiculous too, as if the whole country is the same. Stop.
Stop stop stop all of this

Hawkeye vs. Deadpool #0

I really appreciated all the little nods to Clint’s deafness in this issue. I’m glad other writers are acknowledging it and it’s not just a temporary thing in Fraction’s run. I also enjoy the fact that Wade apparently knows sign language.

Also deadpool has his mask up to expose his lips so Hawkeye can read his lips so he doesn’t have to sign everything

I love Deadpool so much, you guys. Love love him. Every time I find out something new about Deadpool, I love him more, because it’s always shit like this.

Deadpool is lovely.

what the fuck…

I’ve had a dude do that before. that shit is terrifying. Dude went across the room like he typically would to get one. Came back and I didn’t know that he didn’t have one until he pulled out.
I FLIPPED. Cried all the way home. Cried for days. Got tested. Bought the morning after pill. Seriously, fuck dudes that do this. There should be laws against it.

There ARE laws against this. It’s called rape by deception or fraudulent rape and basically, it’s anytime the conditions of your consent are compromised. In a situation like this, you consented to protected sex. By having sex in a way you did not consent to, a crime WAS committed and he could be charged if any physical effects like pregnancy or STD occurred. Remember, ANY SEXUAL ACTIVITY YOU DON’T CONSENT TO IS RAPE. 

If a guy does this, it’s rape. Call the cops. Ruin his life since he has no problem risking yours. Make him fucking learn. Rapists belong in jail. Rape by deception is rape, not a funny “meme”. 

This is incredibly important for everyone to see!! EVERYONE

yes YOU NEED THIS ON YOUR DASH EVERYONE

Quote 18 Sep 508 notes
What I remember most about emotional abuse is that it’s like being put in a box. How you end up in there is the biggest trick – I never managed to work that one out. Maybe you think it’s a treasure box at first: you’re in there because you’re special. Soon the box starts to shrink. Every time you touch the edges there is an “argument”. So you try to make yourself fit. You curl up, become smaller, quieter, remove the excessive, offensive parts of your personality – you begin to notice lots of these. You eliminate people and interests, change your behaviour. But still the box gets smaller. You think it’s your fault. The terrible, unforgivable too-muchness of you is to blame. You don’t realise that the box is shrinking, or who is making it smaller. You don’t yet understand that you will never, ever be tiny enough to fit, or silent enough to avoid a row
