she was dressed modestly to begin with though wtf

But obviously girl knees are so much more psychologically problematic to a developing adolescent than watching adults wield and flex the ability to humiliate powerless children with the excuse that the knees of children are inherently sexually stimulating

What the Hell, America? The skirt that I wore as part of my school uniform was about that length  and no problems. And again some girls wore even shorter skirts with tights and still no problems.

I know right? Well, I didn’t wear the skirt but other girls did. That…. it isn’t like she turned up in her knickers and bra or something.

Cruvus? What is that?!

ive been meaning to make work-related comics forever, so enjoy some choice movie title bastardizations.

(these all actually, seriously, happened, with no humor or awareness on the part of the customer at the time as far as I could tell. so, yes, someone actually asked for a ticket to “Detergent” with a straight face.)

Used to work in a cinema and would get some of this. That said I was usually more worried about mispronouncing Bollywood movies and accidentally saying something really rude as a result.

During my time in Ethiopia, I met many people who rely on health care outposts like the one seen in the bottom two pictures here. Through these outposts, children and families get vaccines, diagnoses, and treatment for diseases like diarrhea and pneumonia.

But most of these families, and most of their health care facilities, don’t have regular access to clean water. When I asked people about their greatest needs, almost all of them—from the Women’s Health Army volunteers to children—cited clean water first.

More than 45 million Ethiopians live without clean water. I spoke to women who walk miles every other day with heavy jerrycans to get drinking water for their families. The people I met explained how lack of clean water is a health problem, a financial problem, and a family problem.

So for the next week nerdfighteria is teaming up with water.org to raise money to build sustainable wells so that more than 4,000 people in Ethiopia can have clean water. Please join me in donating—or, if you can’t, in spreading the word. Thanks, and DFTBA.

Water.org thanks John Green for his continued support.

That’s a pretty sweet tumblr username, water.org. I can’t believe you guys got “water” and I’m stuck with “fishingboatproceeds.” 

MORE IMPORTANTLY, IF WE GET TO $100,000 BILL GATES WILL MATCH OUR DONATION AND $8,000 PEOPLE IN RURAL ETHIOPIA WILL GET ACCESS TO SAFE WATER THROUGH NEW WELLS. We’ve already raised over $16,000. Thanks, and keep spreading the word!

Aaaand they don’t take PayPal. *headbangs*

Sam Pepper handcuffs himself to women on the street, refusing to release one woman until she kisses him

In January, Sam Pepper uploaded a video called “How To Get A Girlfriend Easy” in which he sneaks up behind or beside unsuspecting women on the street and handcuffs them to himself. He then tells them they’re “his girlfriend now.”

When one victim reacts furiously, saying “No! I don’t know you! Take it off!” and demands that he remove the handcuffs, he refuses and replies with “We’re dating now.” She tries again, “Look, I don’t know where you’re from, but we don’t do this in America. Take this off,” while fighting with the cuffs. He refuses again, insisting they’re “going on a date.” She then tells him that she’s married, to which he says “No, you’re married to me now,” and refuses yet again to remove the handcuffs.

At the end of the video, another woman is pleading with him to undo the handcuffs, and he refuses to until she kisses him on the lips. Pepper appears to think the entire scenario is hilarious at best and endearingly misguided at worst, while the women being “pranked” are visibly livid, terrified, and profoundly uncomfortable.

NONE OF THESE THINGS ARE PRANKS.

We need to stop calling assault by white men on men of color and women of all races “pranks,” because it makes them seem lighthearted and fun, not like the violent criminal acts they are.

NONE OF THESE THINGS ARE PRANKS.

NONE OF THESE THINGS ARE PRANKS.

NONE OF THESE THINGS ARE PRANKS.

NONE OF THESE THINGS ARE PRANKS.

NONE OF THESE THINGS ARE PRANKS.

NONE OF THESE THINGS ARE PRANKS.

I would stab that man’s eyes out with my thumbs.

How has this creep not been arrested already? I’ve not heard of him untill recently but the handcuff thing?! Seriously, pretty sure that is illegal.

Dear pan and ace people,

Fckh8 have said they’re going to bring out products for pan and ace people in light of this summer’s giant fuckup.

PLEASE DON’T BUY THEM.

FCKH8 have a long history of being a horrible organisation, focussed solely on cis gays and lesbians (and maybe bisexuals sometimes too). Check out http://stopfckh8.tumblr.com for info on lots of the shit they’ve done.

They aren’t creating these products because they suddenly care about pan and ace people. They’ve just seen that there’s a market for this stuff, and what FCKH8 cares about isn’t LGBTQ+ people, it’s money.

Please don’t fund this horrible, for-profit company. They don’t truly care about LGBTQ+ people, and they don’t deserve our support.

Fellow aces, please for the love of anything you hold dear don’t buy anything from these people if they do start doing ace stuff.

UPDATE: Bill Gates has pledged to match the fundraiser if we hit our goal of $100,000 for Ethiopia. 

So you like chemistry puns…

HOW HAVE I NEVER SEEN THIS BEFORE

IT’S LIKE THE WHO’S ON FIRST OF SCIENCE JOKES

As a note, some of those people HAVE made vids about consent.

Pride.  A fine example of what can be accomplished when we open our hearts and minds and refuse to believe in the impossible.  Such a disparate cast of wonderful characters who come to realise that we are not really as different from one another as we might like to think.  I learnt quite a bit too about a time in my own history, under my own government, that I was shamefully oblivious too.  I was 11 or 12 and busy wishing for a pony at that particular time.
This movie is heart-wrenching, heart-warming and heart-jumping.  There are times when you will want to throw things at the screen and times when you will want to get up and dance.  You will laugh, you will cry.  I sat in the cinema sobbing my heart out at the end for a complex multitude of emotions.  It took until the end of the credits before I could compose myself enough to walk out into daylight under the scrutiny of baffled eyes.
Go watch it now.  You will feel anger, joy, misery, nostalgia, shame, excitement, hope, love and, yes, you will feel Pride.

It’s strange, watching season 5 of Leverage when you know exactly how it ends because you can see it coming and you know what this means and that means and what it builds to.

Sat here at the end of an episode all ‘ooooo, so they were planning that last episode from the start weren’t they?’ like, not just a bit of it but all of it. And if that’s true, what would they have done in season six if there had been one given everything and why it all is??

Would have been interesting to see.

Was going through TV Tropes on Leverage cause, y’know, it’s a thing to do and came across the entry for ‘Evil Cannot Comprehend Good’ and just…. NO.

It’s a spoiler for the end of season two, I know there’s people on this tag who’re just starting to watch so don’t look unless you’re past it.

But no no that is not what was going on. Okay, behind a cut now.
