Protesters are angry about these strange negotiations to release protesters. What kind of practice is this?

When police start using terrorist hijacker tactics… WTF

Wow. The DoJ needs to come in and start that whole fucking police force all over again, from the ground up.

If people who weren’t wearing uniforms were doing this it would be criminal.  It should be criminal.  When bank robbers do this, it’s still criminal.  WHAT THE FUCK IS THE WHITE HOUSE DOING ABOUT THIS?

*swearing a blue streak*

Friendly reminder that this was all drawn by hand. And it is fabulous.

- Since people are not sure, this manga is called Otoyomegatari, or A Bride’s Story and it is by Kaoru Mori. It is a Seinen historical work, that is stunningly drawn, and beautifully researched. This same author also drew and wrote Victorian Romance Emma, another amazing, historic series and my personal favorite of her works.

All works by this author are great to read.

See? No matter how much you water it down for dudes, no matter HOW MUCH you grovel at their feet and swear, swear, swear that feminism is REALLY all about THEM and their FEELINGS, it’s NEVER enough.
They and their handmaidens will continuously move the goal posts until feminism means “complete female submission to males.”
Hell, we’re practically there already.

do you ever think about how little Michelangelo cared

All right, everyone, grab a chair and sit back because I’m going to share with you what I learned about Michelangelo and the Sistine Chapel in my Art History Class.
The man NEVER wanted to paint the damn thing. But the pope at the time “forced him to” According to my teacher. Michelangelo hated this man, I MEAN REALLY HATED HIM. So did a majority of people. The pope’s nickname translated literally means “Terrible pope”.
And the working conditions were awful. He had to work on his back with all that paint, which is filled with some toxic shit that gave Michelangelo a limp for the rest of his life. (Also, our teacher made us get on our backs and try drawing with both hands JUST to prove how bad and uncomfortable it is.)
At the time, the ceiling was so high, you could barely see it. You need binoculars to get a good look at what’s up there, by the time people could see the paintings, there was a lot of weird symbolism that Michelangelo hid up there.

This one? The creation of the sun and moon? God is mooning you. And the pope and all others after him prayed under that without knowing.

This one? At the time, dissecting was sacrilegious and everyone found out how behind God was what looked like half a brain. blah blah, science, science, that pissed everyone off.
And also, ALLLLLLL the men and women in the Sistine Chapel are all on fucking steroids. My teacher described the women’s bodies as "Men bodies with boobs slapped on."
And then there is this:

Now this is the back wall. Michelangelo actually wanted to paint this one after he finished the ceiling. (and there was a different pope too, I believe.) However, originally, EVERYONE in that painting was naked. And they didn’t like it. Adam and Eve naked? That’s cool. But Jesus? Now you crossed the line. So the pope at the time hired someone else to censor it and give the important figures clothes. He worked on it for 6 or 9 months before he died.
And then the symbolism in this one is great. Somewhere in the right, there are homosexuals in heaven. (No matter what, the Vatican will say “Those straight men are happy” I’ll get to that in a second), Michelangelo painted himself near Jesus, and the terrible pope is in hell with a snake biting his balls.
And if you were to point ANY of this out to the Vatican, they will deny all of it and claim Michelangelo was a catholic hero. In fact, when they discovered the symbolism around the 60s or 70s, the guy who told the Vatican was kicked out of the Vatican for life.
TL;DR: Michelangelo hated the pope and made the best “fuck you” of all time.

This is how my one day off has played out today:

Scrubbing a kitchen

Nursing a migraine

Murdering a BLACK WIDOW on my BEDROOM WALL

birds have extremely complex mating rituals as a measure against shapeshifters. think about it, do you ever hear about eagles or albatrosses getting eaten by shapeshifters? no? that’s because humans will go up to the first pretty person that smiles at them from a little rock in the middle of a river but birds are just like ‘nah we gotta have a dance off first to prove u are a true bird’

So, I have been practicing my Clementine make up for her cosplay. the one with the yellow and read top was my first attempt. the one on top is my second. i just added a filter to it to make the make up pop. I bought two different foundations since her nose is way darker than any part of her face and i applied it to my cheeks as well <3 I really loved how this turned out. Im going to shape my eye brows like her and then finish the hat and paint the jacket ; u ; im super excited guys, this was fun ^^(put mykinky hair to good use)

So there are still a lot of think pieces being written about Anaconda

the-exercist:

Most of the authors seem to primarily object to how Nicki used the word “bitch” to describe women. However, the only phrase that they ever seem to reference from the lyrics is “skinny bitches.”

Did everyone just forget that Nicki rapped about “bitches with a fat ass” and “fat ass big bitches” too?

I haven’t once seen a person talk about how those phrases are insulting or degrading to women. If you have such an issue with women being described as bitches, then why are you only complaining about how Nicki demeans thin women? Why aren’t you stepping up to defend big women from being called “bitches” too?

Gee, I wonder…
