Q:Charlene Dill, a 32-year-old mother of three, working three jobs, just died because she couldn't get access to healthcare. Expanded Medicaid, which would have saved her, was blocked by the Republican administration of Florida. Hey, remember when the GOP was opposed to "Death Panels"? Well, what the fuck would you call this, then?
Republicans are garbage, their opposition to universal healthcare is sick and disgusting, and by voting for these people, you are complicit in the same.
Okay no. Fucking no. You think your sandwich is cute with peanut butter and jelly hearts, fucker? Well you’ll change your mind once you put it together and try to eat it. First you’ll get a mouthful of just bread and disappointment, then when you take another bite your mouth will be assaulted by copious the amounts of sticky peanut butter and sugary jelly and there won’t be enough bread to save you from it. A sandwich like that is what failure tastes like. The pb and j may be shaped like hearts but there’s no love in that sandwich. It’s about balance. Life needs balance, and so does your fucking sandwich. You disgust me. Don’t talk to me until you know how to make a proper sandwich.
The way you slam your body into mine reminds me I’m alive, but monsters are always hungry, darling, and they’re only a few steps behind you, finding the flaw, the poor weld, the place where we weren’t stitched up quite right, the place they could almost slip right into through if the skin wasn’t trying to keep them out, to keep them here, on the other side of the theater where the curtain keeps rising.
I crawled out the window and ran into the woods. I had to make up all the words myself. The way they taste, the way they sound in the air. I passed through the narrow gate, stumbled in, stumbled around for a while, and stumbled back out. I made this place for you. A place for you to love me. If this isn’t a kingdom then I don’t know what is.
Want to document a trip without even trying?
Our customer support lead, Lana, just got back from India! She wore the Autographer Life Logging Cam on her trip and made this video from its photos.
The Autographer uses an algorithm to take photos at just the right moments. It practically made this video for her.

I quit my job, unable to put in even 20 hours a week. It took probably a month to recover to a point where I wasn’t in pain, longer to regain the energy to run an errand or hang out with friends. These days I can generally manage to leave the house once a day, if I don’t do anything for hours afterward. I feel, on bad days, like my life has been stolen from me, that I’m a burden to my husband, that I’m worthless as an animal, that I give nothing to the world.
And there’s no way I could care for a child. Just being around my niece and nephew, or my friends’ kids, while fun, tuckers me out after a few hours, and it’s a relief when I can disengage. I couldn’t do this with my own kids, obviously, not without a full-time nanny; I’d be an absent sickly mother from a Victorian novel, and I can’t do it. So I’m not going to. It breaks my heart. It sucks. I don’t know what to else to do.
Q:Is it racist to suggest that race was a factor in that kid from Ghana getting accepted into all 8 Ivy League schools? Because seriously, with affirmative action these days, does this not give black people like him a leg up over whites? Is that not a simple fact that he had an advantage over white kids with equivalent qualifications? Given this, isn't the REAL racism against white people, especially those white kids who got rejected over him?
Dear Racists: I usually don’t like to answer when you write in with a cavalcade of lies, because just saying “no” over and over again to your bullshit can sometimes give the appearance that you have a point, or that people who aren’t racist are being defensive.
But sometimes, when real pieces of shit like you write in, I don’t know, it’s just fun. So guess what, you racist asshole, even taking your account of how affirmative action works (which is, like everything else you’re saying, a lie), isn’t it kind of pathetic that you can really only ever come up with this one example of how white people are allegedly discriminated against? Like, you’ll conveniently ignore, say, legacy admissions from institutions with a proud legacy of having been white only schools, or the fact that even well meaning teachers unconsciously favor white students, to just rail at “affirmative action.”
Well guess what, you shithead, your only trump card is completely bankrupt, you’re a racist piece of shit, and I’m sorry you were too stupid to get into one of these schools, trust me, you wouldn’t have hacked it there anyway (not that that shit is all that).
PS. I’m sorry you’re so stupid, but go fuck yourself, seriously.
Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. […] Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know.
Crivens! Some colored sketches of the fantastic nac mac feegles from Wee Free Men. Before you get up in arms or ask me, “Hey! Why isn’t the kelda blue?!?”
“She was much, much fatter than the male pictsies; she looked as if she’d been made of round balls of slightly squashy dough, and was the color of chestnuts.” (p.156)
It has not been mentioned since if any of the other female feegles have been any other color, so I assume she was just special.
Q:You're so rude. Wow.
Yo, if you’re mad at someone for being “rude” to racists, but not racists for saying and doing racist shit, you need to go fuck yourself. You a piece of shit.
A man in the grocery store line today approached me and said, “Sir, when I first saw you I was extremely attracted to you, but then I noticed that you are a boy. How… I mean, why do you dress so provocatively?”
I responded, “Well, in today’s world the majority of the straight male race view women as objects, or something that belongs to them. I dress provocatively because it attracts the attention of men in a sexual and OBJECTIVE way. However, when realized that I am actually male, they often become confused, disgusted, upset or all of the above. By inflicting this minor emotional damaged upon the ego of a man raised by twisted societal gender norms, maybe, just maybe the individual will think twice before viewing another woman with an objective attitude and sense of belonging. No woman, belongs to ANYONE. Male or female, the equality of human beings needs to be a priority. It is something worth dressing up for.”
I AM NOT KIDDING. The woman behind me, the female cashier, the old lady bagging groceries and the woman in front of me who was talking on the phone STOPPED, …. and proceeded to gasp and clap. The man shook my hand, told me to have a blessed day and then said, “excuse me ladies, I need to visit my daughter.”
…. I was shaking by the time I walked out of the store.

Remember when Disney was all like ‘fuck how races work and homogeneous casts and couples’?
Black and white couple produce fillipino-american child. White dude is the valet. White step mother, one white step sister, one black step sister. Just a jumble, and it ought to happen again.
First multi-racial cast performing Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella.
Whitney Houston was producing Rodger and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” and was to star in it until she decided that Brandy Norwood would make a better Cinderella. Brandy would not do it unless her idol Whitney took the Fairy Godmother role.
Brandy Norwood became the first African-American to play Cinderella. This version broke viewer-ship records when it debuted, and it holds the record for the bestselling video for a made for TV movie.
So fuck any noise where people say audiences don’t want to see a mixed race couple, or more people of color. This was a success from television. I still remember Brandy singing Impossible.
That ought to happen again. Mixed race live action cast where the relationships don’t made genetic or racial sense.
This was my life when it came out…
