Uganda held an invite-only Pride parade this weekend, the first since the Anti-Homosexuality Act was overturned. Being gay is still illegal in Uganda, but it is no longer illegal to “promote homosexuality” by associating with other LGBT people or being “gay in public.” Police gave their permission for the event, and there were no protesters. Small steps, huge impact. (via BuzzFeed)

We dare you to say we don’t live in a rape culture.

Amazingly, not The Onion:

“[W]e now have young men telling Bloomberg News that they basically view their female peers as rape bombs just waiting to explode and ruin their lives.”

I REPEAT: THIS IS NOT THE ONION

"I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged."

see but if you ask me what my all-time favorite jpeg image on the internet i’ve ever seen was it’d be this. i have had sleepless nights thinking about this photo, i have considered writing papers on this photo dozens of pages long. there is more to this photo than meets the eye and it invokes emotions in me that range from incredible humor to crippling sadness, from tremendous disgust to absolute universal oneness and zen. i don’t expect everyone to understand and see what i see in this photo but i just want to share what this means to me. i’ve seen plenty of interesting and thought-provoking things in my life on the net, but this one has to be the absolute highest gold standard for my life thus far.

the first thing to understand about this image is the context. this image was taken from here, a study done to compare how expensive many liquids are by the gallon.
here are a few basic points to consider. keep in mind, this only covers 10% of it. 
look closely (zoom in if you have to) on the label on the bag. read aloud what it says.
knowing what you know about point 1, it can be interpreted as a ziplock bag of children’s blood.
there is no way human blood is stored or contained in a ziplock bag.
why is there a label on this bag? was the label actually a document from the hospital, or did she make it herself?
this is a gallon of children’s blood. how many children contributed to this bag?
was it a single child? was it taken out all at once or were there intervals in the siphoning process? 
obviously taking out this much blood immediately would kill a small child.
there is no humanly possible way that a bunch of random mixed up children donated blood into one container, even if they all had the same blood type.
how did this woman get access to children’s blood? did she move it from a real container to a ziplock? why did she do that?
it looks like she had some problems transferring the blood (by the looks of the top of the bag). does she not care that children’s blood has been spilled on her floor? 
is it her house? where is she? look at the surroundings. beige walls, a bookshelf to the right, wood table to the left with a gallon of paint. she is clearly not at a hospital. 
it’s nothing short of an “”“”“”aesthetic”“”“” that this woman is wearing a blood red sweater and red lipstick. i have never seen someone more successfully rock a flannel shirt underneath a sweater with the collar popped and the bottom not tucked in.
human blood can’t just be tossed in the back seat of your ford taurus and driven home from the hospital to take a photo. it has to be stored in a freezer.
so this woman has to have connections with the medical industry to procure human blood, did she get fired from her position? was she arrested? why was this never on the news?
it is a bag of red wine

so for some ungodly reason tumblr staff decided it’d be a good idea to allow flashy gifs or incredibly bright images to be a background for the login screen. a lot of people i know are photosensitive and prone to headaches or other, worse things that can be caused by this. so naturally i wrote a small script to disable those completely. hopefully permanently.
you can find it here. you’ll need the browser extension/addon stylish for it to work, which you should be able to get from the website itself if i remember correctly. hope it helps someone o7

This is seriously so important. I suffer epilepsy and am extremly photosensitive, as I am sure a lot of other epileptics are. Please, spread this around, you could seriously save someone.

Hi everyone! I know this isn’t a funny gif post, but I’m extremely photosensitive and know that many others with fibro are as well.

Girl meets world addresses Cultural appropriation

this is actually embarassingly wrong, though. sure, she looks tacky but this is a purely white liberal construct we’re looking at here. generally speaking, people in contemporary japan aren’t going to see something like that as misappropriation, and it hardly makes sense to even try to look at it that way because harajuku is, you know, a shopping district that sells mass produced clothing. maybe this girl is doing something else noxious in the episode, but what’s presented here just isn’t that.

there is of course a line in the sand, and in this case in specific it’s basically between nicki minaj and gwen stefani. nicki was, and maybe still does, calling herself harajuku barbie because she’s drawn a lot of inspiration for her looks from the bright, colourful styles of the district. a district in a wealthy industrialized nation. there’s no real difference between that and calling herself rodeo drive barbie or camden square barbie. gwen stefani, you know, was paying asian women to follow her around like ornaments. that’s a problem.

i get kind of suspicious when people, especially in mainstream tv, overwhelmingly go after “weaboos” as soft targets because it seems like a smokescreen to avoid going after the actually deeply troublesome and normalized acts of commodifying and trivializing marginalized groups.

also, a teacher dragging a teenage girl that hard in front of her entire class is fucked up.

I saw this like seven times yesterday scrolling on my phone and wasn’t about to start on it from there - but yeah pretty much what you said. People are ready to leap on those they perceive as weeaboos but people forget or ignore that Harajuku (and anime) is for sale.

Love of my life Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is the official Ambassador of Kawaii, as in it is a real part of her fashion-fused-musical-career as ordained by the government to promote Japanese kawaii culture and Harajuku fashions to the rest of the world in an effort to bump international attention, tourism, and sales. There are without a doubt social movements/ideas particular to the culture embedded in the different areas of Japanese fashion and act as a response to the culture - but frankly, overall, a lot of Japanese fashion is fashion. It exists for an aesthetic; it exists for expression; it exists for influence and ultimately consumption; and today more than ever it exists for export.

Sitting around and pointing a finger at every Japanese fashion labeling it as deeply intrinsic and important and special and exclusive to the culture is harmful; by doing so you are denying a contemporary creative base the autonomy to evolve and speak for itself. “Japan is a land of tradition” yeah, okay, but it doesn’t live in a fucking vacuum trembling from fear of the peeking gaijin.

What is happening here is a young girl is dressed in a fashion she cannot identify, which can be a case of cultural appropriation when “plagiarizing and/or thieving” is the mode of operation. For example: Someone latching on to a visual they saw while watching a Japanese film/whatever then went on to claim the style as their own creation and started selling it without ever acknowledging their influences or affirming the creatives whose work they are leeching from. Which is of course a lot to assume of a middle schooler to be intentionally doing. 

And that is totally Cory laying the smack down on his own daughter in front of an entire class. Double messed up. 

Bolded for highlight because I know a lot of people won’t read it otherwise.

I keep seeing a post about how Disney is better then CN because it had the weird wieners in one episode of gravity falls but have you seen the crap Disney pulls compared to Cartoon Network,or any TV channel for kids even?
