“To protest a bill that would require women to undergo an ultrasound before having an abortion, Virginia State Sen. Janet Howell (D-Fairfax) on Monday attached an amendment that would require men to have a rectal exam and a cardiac stress test before obtaining a prescription for erectile dysfunction medication.”—
I have come to the consensus that I am now addicted to The Vampire Dairies all thanks to Amaya and Megan. My mind was telling me no, but my body said, “YAAAS” after Emily took over Bonnie.
I live for the holy trifecta of the show. Bonnie, Caroline, and Elena are all that matters on this show. Everyone else can leave. No like seriously please go and just center the show around those 3. Their scenes together are pure perfection.
Yesterday my mom posted a picture on Facebook of my 5 year old brother Sam wearing a pair of shoes he picked out for his first day of preschool.
She explained to him in the store that they were really made for girls. Sam then told her that he didn’t care and that “ninjas can wear pink shoes too.”
Sam went to preschool and got several compliments on his new shoes. Not one kid said anything negative toward him about it.
However, my mom received about 20 comments on the photo from various family members saying how “wrong” it is and how “things like this will affect him socially” and, put most eloquently by my great aunt, “that shit will turn him gay.”
My mom then deleted the photo and told Sam that he can wear whatever he wants to preschool, that it’s his decision. If he wants to wear pink shoes, he can wear pink shoes.
Sam then explained to her that he didn’t like them because they were pink, he liked them because they were “made out of zebras” and zebras are his favorite animal :)
Parenting. You’re doing it right.
I find it interesting how in every one of these stories I read it is ALWAYS the adults who take issue and make comments…
1. Got Osama bin laden…check 2. unemployment rate down to 8.5%…check 3. 1.6 million jobs created with no GOP help…check 4. 22 months of job and economic growth…check 5. Ended war in Iraq …check 6. DADT repeal…check 7. Not one tax hike in 3 years….check 8. Same wife for 15 years with no extra marital affairs…check 9. Saved the auto industry which got GM back to the #1 automaker in the world and created 1.5 million jobs…check 10. Assisted in ousting Ghaddafi…check 11. Only active President to receive Nobel Peace prize while in office…check 12. Mortgage modification to prevent home owners from losing their home 13. STILL fighting for middle class families…check 13. 1st president since Roosevelt (GOP) to reform healthcare….check 14. Reformed financial system, first time since FDR…check
Despite what the GOP would have you believe the President has been doing these things and more by himself.
Like him or not (I personally don’t either), he has probably done more for gay people than you. Don’t detract your allies just because they aren’t your cup of tea.
Speaking of tea,
OH MY GOD DON’T LUMP ME IN WITH HIM AS “ALLY”
HE’S A RACIST ANNOYING DICKHOLE AND NO MATTER WHAT HE DOES HE COULD CURE CANCER BUT HE’S STILL A RACIST
Well see it helps if you are specific in your original post because now there is no way you’re going to convince me that was your main point (if it was, you would be ashamed to be white because of Tyler Oakley). You know as well as I do you really don’t like him because he’s what you consider a stereotype and STEREOTYPES ARE BAD AND YOU AREN’T THAT KIND OF GAY NO YOU ARE BEYOND STEREOTYPES ACTUALLY NO ONE WOULD EVEN KNOW YOU WERE GAY IF YOU DIDN’T TELL THEM OR SUCK THEIR DICK IN FACT ANYONE WHO EMBODIES STEREOTYPES IS PUTTING THE GAY RIGHTS MOVEMENT BACK TO THE STONEWALL AGES.
(full awareness that you might not actually be this extreme and that I am definitely expression distain for people like that in general…I bid you adieu)
Or it’s that I get lumped into the same group as the racist douchebag. But yeah okay it’s about stereotypes, how about the stereotypes he perpetuates against people of color or his apathy towards non-white culture for the sake of fashion. We must hate him because he’s a flaming homosexual. Yep, that’s the reason.
Wow one little person is causing all this ruckus. Explain to me how Tyler Oakley’s ignorance is making gay people feel horrible? I am so confused at this part. I mean if you want to say you are ashamed to be blank; then it should surely be your race not the sexuality.
What I think some of my white gay peers are feeling; is that first time in their lives they have became the minority. So they lose some of their privilege, and it must suck for you guys. Really it must. Then here comes Oakley who spews out some ignorance, and it makes the gays go crazy. Yet, the first thing they will say is, “I’m ashamed to be gay because of him”; yet won’t denounce him as a their white peer. “He’s giving gay people a bad name!”; yet again never white people.
Why not though? White is the majority, you are not held under a racial microscope because of it. So you have to go with something else, that people scrutinize a group of people on. That’s where the sexuality comes into play into all of this.
Seriously if you are going to pull the “I’m ashamed…” card at least pick the right identifier. Just saves the other minorities to give you a massive side eye.
Turn around, every now and then I get a little bit lonely and you’re never coming round Turn around, every now and then I get a little bit tired of listening to the sound of my tears Turn around, every now and then I get a little bit nervous That the best of all the years have gone by Turn around, every now and then I get a little bit terrified And then I see the look in your eyes Turn around bright eyes, every now and then I fall apart
of course, someone on my fb is bitching about how obama said kids shouldn't be allowed to drop out until they're 18 saying that teachers will just herd through kids like cattle and won't learn. UGH! For kid in low income areas who drop out in the 9th grade being forced to stay school can change their lives and even if they don't learn more at least they having a degree. Better than nothing. Also, if we work to reform edu kids would actually learn. We can't just dismiss everything.
Preach it sweetheart. Preach it! We are basically telling students that we believe in you. WE BELIEVE IN YOU.
What’s so hard in trying to end the dropout rate? Will people still slip through the cracks? Yes, but at least there would be more students who can benefit from this. Forcing low income students out of the streets. UMM HELLO!?!
I want to see the Republicans fight this. I really want to see what they are going to say.
“Teachers matter. So instead of bashing them, or defending the status quo, let’s offer schools a deal. Give them the resources to keep good teachers on the job, and reward the best ones. In return, grant schools flexibility: To teach with creativity and passion; to stop teaching to the test; and to replace teachers who just aren’t helping kids learn.”—
two chicks covered in octopus and slim, it’s disgusting.
What has the world come to!?! Poor girls trying to achieve a few Asian coins (I’m just assuming that this didn’t take place in America). I just want to give them all a big hug, and shield them from that terrible director.
What, where, who?… I dont think I wanna know. This is like “two girls one cup” situation. All the boys where talking about it, and little ol’ David just wanted to fit in so he watched it with them. That didn’t turn me straight, but it definitely made me reaffirm my sexuality.
…what the fuck is happening right now? Why is this on my dash?
Its in response to a post I reblogged earlier with some colorful commentary by me. Basically being happy that minorities may have some stereotypes that was forced down upon us by the majority, but at least we don’t have the bestiality stereotype.
If people actually thought you were just white, then they have some serious problems. Better claim that brown blood booboo. Claim those extra features that the majority pays thousands of dollars to get.
Its okay sweetheart. At least Asians get jobs. Just keep a stash of used underwear you bought at Chinatown and nobody will suspect a thing. Whenever you need a fix, ask Bob for a bathroom fix. Yet instead of going to the bathroom you’ll run to your desk to get your hourly sniff.

To say that they are bad drivers is not racist. It is a fact. And it is not racist if it is a fact.
Well of course you will say that if you lived in an area with the majority population are Asians. Its what you will see most of the time. You are just seeking that out, which the majority race usually does when someone fits into that stereotype.
Its like me saying, “To have lived in a heavy African American population such as I. To say that they are thieves, is not racist. It is a fact. And it is not racist if its a fact.”
If you’re planning to continue to use a downloading system (and I honestly hope you do - saying megaupload shutting down is the end of downloads would be like saying file sharing was dead when napster got taken), here are a few tips:
rename your files something simple - for example, “GOT” or even “throne” for Game of Thrones, or “TVD” or “vampire” for The Vampire Diaries. Sometimes files will be taken down for being named something copyrighted.
change the extension of your file to .ppt or .abc - after downloading the person can change it back to .avi
there are lots of other downloading sites! Filesonic, fileshare, rapidshare, mediafire… get out there and explore for your links, you’ll find heaps of them (and probably in HD - megaupload was the go-to source of medium quality files, but 720p is usually uploaded to other servers)
tehparadox is a goldmine for links - and most of them are filesonic/fileserve, which means they’re still valid.
you can use torrenting! Here is a guide for everything you need to know about torrents and how to use them. It’s not complicated at all, and in some ways a lot simpler than direct download.
Install JDownloader! It will change your life, I swear.
filestube is a great way to find links - just be really cautious as to what links you’re sent to - if you’re getting vibes that it isn’t a legit link (size is often an indicator here: regular shows should be about 350mb, movies 700mb - anything incredibly large (unless it’s HD) or small in size is not the real deal), don’t download it.
AVOID programs like limewire - i hope this doesn’t even need to be said, but downloading programs are crawling with viruses.
ngl, the loss of megavideo is a blow in this department. I would say that if you can, download, but if you can’t, livestreams like justintv can work well.
tumblr tags! Searching for a movie or show in the tags can produce a wealth of download or streaming links (the “shame” tag has been going off lately for this reason, fyi).
American sites like ABC often stream episodes after they’ve aired - for Americans only, of course. Use a proxy program like tunnelbear or hotspot shield to bypass country limits - this can be used for sites like hulu as well.
Have fun and be smart when it comes to downloads!!
