About Me

Significant Other

I remember when I first found out the truth about “Somali pirates” I got chills because of how horrific the truth was and how insanely creepily well the media had twisted the situation. Every single fucking article making it seem like these “pirates” were just after money or something holding innocent people hostage and I never gave it a second thought, why would I? There was no indication that people were trying to legitimately fight off disgusting imperialism that left nuclear waste in their waters, that over 300 people have died from radiation sickness, that Europeans have been stealing Somalia’s seafood because they overfished their own waters and the indigenous fisherman are starving and so these “pirates” emerged to deal with those stealing their country’s natural resources. The truth is enough to make anyone sick to their stomachs.

This is a great article about the truth about Somali pirates, in case anyone wants a source.

What I love about social justice white people

sage-kun:

juxtapiration:

is every time my friend gets stop to be told off by some white person, very rudely, how his tattoo of a dreamcatcher is racist and insensitive to the Native American people and should removed/apologize/be ashamed.

He is Native American and they confuse him for Mexican every time, and he just states “But I got this at the reservation I lived in for 15 YEARS.” and proceeds to falsely place a curse of his ancestors on them.

DEADPOOL

[x]

deadpool looks incredible and I am so unbelievably amped

oh what the fuck they’re actually making this?

of course they’re actually making it

Ryan Reynolds has made them scrap their scripts like three fucking times (because the last time Deadpool was in a movie, it was not fucking Deadpool, and he’s a big Deadpool fan so there was no way he was going to let the happen again), there’s no way they’d just let the project die after that much work

Lavoisier is having none of your shit.

Heeeey so fun fact: the woman in that painting is Lavoisier’s wife, Marie-Anne Pierrette Paulze, who not only acted as Lavoisier’s lab assistant but also translated English and Latin texts into French so he could read them. But she didn’t just translate, she pointed out errors in the chemistry in some of the texts. Her observations of these errors convinced Lavoisier to study combustion, which led to his discovery of oxygen. She was also critical to the publication of Lavoisier’s Elementary Treatise on Chemistry in 1789. She kept strict records of every experiment they conducted together and drew detailed diagrams of all their equipment. She also threw amazing parties and invited all the brightest minds in science so her husband could pick their brains. After Lavoisier was guillotined she secured all of his notebooks and equipment for posterity.
In short: NOBODY KICKS MADAME LAVOISIER OUT OF THE LAB.

Also, a side note: My historian husband-to-be pointed some things out to me about this painting. Notice that Madame Lavoisier is looking at the viewer, and all the light is on her, while Lavoisier himself is physically smaller than her, in shadow, and looking up to her in reverence. This isn’t a candid photograph- all of these choices are deliberate. The painting isn’t of Lavoisier- Madame Lavoisier is meant to be the central subject. 
I can just imagine Lavoisier telling all his colleagues that his wife is really the one with all the clever ideas, and them patting him on the back and telling him he’s sweet for saying so.

Master Post of the best of the great “Show us your dick”-a-thon of 2014.

Here’s the previous one.

I have never hard those terms before. Fascinating 

These are just the top ten, I got over 300 questions and learned more slang terms for penis than I ever imagined could exist.

"While the majority of domestic violence victims are women, abuse of men happens far more often than you’d probably expect. Typically, men are physically stronger than women but that doesn’t necessarily make it easier to escape the violence or the relationship. An abused man faces a shortage of resources, skepticism from police, and major legal obstacles, especially when it comes to gaining custody of his children from an abusive mother. No matter your age, occupation, or sexual orientation, though, you can overcome these challenges and escape the abuse.
Abused men can also reach out to the following organizations for help:
U.S. and Canada: 1-888-7HELPLINE (1-888-743-5754) The Domestic Abuse Helpline
UK: 01823 334244 ManKind Initiative
Australia: One in Three Campaign offers a number of crisis hotlines”
Read more here: [X]
Oh and may it also be noted that Men are not the majority of domestic violence victims, according to the CDC. [x]
More info on Male Domestic Abuse Hotlines are here [x]
Learn about the signs of domestic abuse here [x]
Men Specific Domestic Abuse, not always physical [x]
I couldnt find any fundraisers for male victims of domestic abuse but I found plenty telling men they can stop it. If you know of anything people can donate to to help men, please put a link so others can help. Thank you.

Men who are victims of domestic abuse can call the same domestic violence hotlines as female victims:
New York City Domestic Violence Hotline1-800-621-HOPE (4673)
National Domestic Violence Hotline1-800-799-SAFE (7233)
With the exception of a few shelters that are congregate living settings, all domestic violence shelters in New York City are able to accommodate male victims.
Information and Support
Non-residential services such as counseling, support groups, legal assistance, advocacy and other services are also available for men.
Gay and Transgender men can access a full range of domestic violence services by calling the New York City Gay and Lesbian Anti-Violence Project Hotline at (212) 714-1141.
Straight men can obtain domestic violence services at most non-residential domestic violence programs in New York City. At some of these programs they may be welcome to join existing support groups. Because there are so few straight men coming forward for services, there are no programs operating support groups specifically for straight men.  Some men find women’s support groups helpful since their issues are the same, while others feel uncomfortable.
