"

Two other women, also breast cancer survivors, said their husbands left them after they were diagnosed. Both had to have mastectomies (in case anyone doesn’t know, this is the surgical operation to remove one or both breasts).

The first woman said her husband told her that he would rather see her dead than see her lose her breasts. The second woman had her operation and waited all day to be picked up by her husband, who never arrived. By nightfall, one of the nurses offered to give her a ride, and she came home to find the house empty.

Obviously, these are extreme cases of a man’s reaction to his wife’s breast cancer, but this is what I see when I see the “I ♥ Boobies” bracelets. I see love of the body parts, not the person being treated—not the patient, not the victim, not the survivor.

Fuck PETA. They’re offering to help ten families in Detroit with their bills if they agree to become vegan.

JUST WOW 

FUCK PETA

Holy shit that is some straight up white saviour missionary style bullshit. Only with quinoa instead of bibles. 

So this is why everyone hates them….

I knew that there had to be a catch. It’s fucking PETA. I wouldn’t expect anything less.

"When I got into the music industry a majority of female artists I’d seen were trying to regurgitate an ideal of the female image. They were trying to be almost a replica of what was popular. I just found that to be very boring and dishonest. I just wanted to be in control of my clothes. I wanted that choice. That’s the only thing that I’m saying. Women should not be marginalized. We shouldn’t play into the sexism." - Janelle Monae [x[

Once again for the people who insist on using Jane as the mascot for their respectability politricks and bullshit. Just seen some clowns trying to use her to tear down Rihanna the other day. Cut that shit out.

Israel Bans Radio Broadcast on Child Deaths in Gaza

July 25th, 2014

The Israel Broadcasting Authority (IBA) has censored a radio clip naming children killed in Gaza, due to its “politically controversial” content, Haaretz reported Thursday.

Israeli human rights group B’Tselem, which prepared the censored broadcast, appealed against the decision but the IBA once again refused to run the clip.

According to Haaretz, the broadcast reveals the fact that children have been killed in Gaza since Israel’s Protective Edge operation began 17 days ago, reading out some of their names.

So far more than 600 people have been killed in bombings in Gaza, more than 150 of them children. But apart from a brief report on the number of fatalities, the Israeli media refrains from covering them," B’Tselem said in a statement cited by Haaretz.

According to the UN, over the past two days in Gaza, one Palestinian child has been killed every hour.

the highlighted area is where Jason Derulo knows what the girls want. london to taiwan.

new york to haiti

greenland is right out

ummm no offense but new york to haiti should be measured as the area between the two latitudes, not the longitudes. this graph is incorrect and vastly underestimates the total region of the earth in which Jason Derulo knows what the girls want

Even measuring that way, Greenland remains right out, as does the entirity of Brazil.

Have we considered measuring by neither latitude nor longitude but in all area that would extend perpendicular from the diagonal of the two places?

There are many different interpretations of the data, and until more is available, we ought not conclude anything at this point.

In light of that, I posit this alternative map of regions where Jason Derulo is potentially claiming where he knows what girls want:

As we can see, if we assume that model, the vast majority of the area where Jason Derulo knows what girls want is either open ocean (the Atlantic, the Mediterranean Sea) or sparsely populated (the northern Sahara, the northern Arabian Desert, various desert portions of Iran and Afghanistan, and the southern Tibetan Plateau). Four of the ten most populated countries on the planet have no territory in it (Nigeria, Brazil, Japan, and Indonesia), and two which do have relatively little territory in it (the US and Russia). It is suggested that for all his boasting, Jason Derulo does not know what a probable majority of the world’s girls want.

Perhaps Jason Derulo’s intention was never to proclaim to be omnipotent to the interests of the female gender. Perhaps he was instead expressing his humanity, or the limits of his knowledge. I applaud Jason Derulo. Jason Derulo is not just another 2 dimensional character. Jason Derulo has depth.Jason Derulo has limitations and has come to terms with them. Jason Derulo knows Jason Derulo. Thats why he makes it a point to say his name so much.

I too agree with the second map. This post was so insightful.

Like because you bothered me about payment I hope you accept this payment in blood.

You killed me. Your society killed me. I couldnt decide what career aka dead end job better suited me to pay you back..I hope you enjoy my dead body as tender.


Sincerely yours and forever in your debt.

But they won’t care. They’ll just ask your family to send them the money that they were going to use to bury or cremate you.

After Seven Years, Dutch Diplomat Couple Returns their Adopted Korean Daughter

Raymond Poeteray, vice consul at the Dutch Consulate General in Hong Kong, and his wife, Meta, adopted baby “Jade” from South Korea in 2000 at the age of four months. The couple believed themselves to be infertile at the time.

The diplomat’s wife subsequently conceived two biological children. The couple then left their eight-year-old adopted daughter in foster care, claiming she was never able to integrate into their family, and that “it was difficult to raise her because of culture shock.

Upon the child’s abandonment in Hong Kong, officials discovered that the parents never registered the child as a citizen or even a resident, and she had no legal status or protection under the Dutch, Hong Kong, or Korean governments.

Oh poor baby. :( That is just so fucked up. Fucking white people.

and this is why white people should be stringently watched when adopting PoC babbies.

This couple was also in the news earlier this year accused of espionage which…I can’t say I’m shocked actually to find out that they are morally bankrupt.

In case you wanted to cry or be disgusted today
