When you type out a long, detailed complaint in a kik message, in an attempt to share with someone who wants to know what’s going on, and you nix sending it, but decide to send it to yourself as an email, since you already labored over it, anyway.
Then, in the To: of the email, instead of yourself, you send it to the person ABOUT WHOM YOU’RE COMPLAINING. Then you hit send.
That moment when you question yourself, “Wait. Did I really send that to her, instead of myself?”
To discourage follicles from producing gray beard hairs by plucking out their poor-performing neighbors. I’d hoped this would serve as a deterrent. However, like the privatized incarceration system, this method of setting an example seems to be having little to no persuasive effect.
“In speaking out, Modi challenged citizens and government alike to change the way that rape is thought about. “Today as we hear about the incidents of rapes, our head hangs in shame,” he said in his wide-ranging address. “I want to ask parents when your daughter turns 10 or 12 years old, you ask, ‘Where are you going? When will you return?’ Do the parents dare to ask their sons, ‘Where are you going? Why are you going? Who are your friends?’ After all, the rapist is also someone’s son. If only parents decide to put as many restrictions on their sons as they do on their own daughters.””—Indian Prime Minister Uses Biggest Speech Of The Year To Slam Rape Culture | ThinkProgress (via tymethiefslongerthoughts)
I wish I was around more, lately. I miss you guys. Every time I try to write about this or that, some significant emotions spill over the levee, and I start to lose control. I’ll be back in force a soon.
This NSFW article and its accompanying photos are incredible. This is mostly for women, because it shows you how beautiful you are, regardless your feelings about whether this is too big, or that is too small. The absolute most sexy thing about this (It’s nudes, but that’s not it) is the look of joy and confidence on all these women’s faces. I’m going to garner a guess this was the first time many of them felt so comfortable in their own skin. How marvelous! My 2 favorites in the main article/portraits are the woman with baby, and the woman hoisting the middle finger.
A pretinternet friend did some work with a photographer shooting nudes of her and some other women that mainstream media wouldn’t really highlight. She was reluctant to go through with it. She wrote that the experience changed her. She became so much more confident about who she is. She returned for more shoots, and posted them for us to share with her. They weren’t porn, they were art. You are beautiful, ladies. Celebrate it! (Just not at Walmart!)
" The bad news is, our initiative, the one by the people for the people. The initiative allowing citizens to have 24 plants and 24 ounces, was destroyed before it could even get started because of a common problem with grassroots organizations, lack of funding. All the while a Privately funded campaign in the interest of big business (New Approach Oregon) had no trouble shamelessly misinforming the public of there intentions.
“Whats so bad about New Approach’s ballot measure?” you may be asking. Well:
• It puts more people into the legal system through fines and stricter punishments for persons under 21.
• It completely dissolves Oregon’s already existing “Oregon Medical Marijuana Program”
• It doesn’t legalize industrial hemp. This is a tremendous deal, as hemp can be used to make oil, plastics, fiber, paper and more.
• It’s the same bill that recently passed in Washington, and they’re paying up to 300% more per gram than when it was illegal
• more taxes than CRRH’s bill
• They are using the guise of “helping fund schools” a tactical and dishonest public relations stunt.
Hey Jeff, do you have an uncesored blog/tumbler for those of us who enjoy your view of the world and the kind of dad you are.
Well, thanks. Nope. No other tumblr. This is me, uncensored. Well, mostly. There are things about which I’ll just not discuss.
I contemplated the idea: Activating another tumblr would give me the kind of freedom where I could say anything at all, I suppose. Things which ought not really be published. Then I considered that maybe if I needed to hide those things, then for me, they’re not worth sharing. Besides, I’ve curated my list of mutual follows. I’ll follow anyone else’s second, third, fourth blog, but I think I’m just gonna keep this real. Keep it me. Then there’d be the whole contacting people to invite them to follow the new blog deal. Frankly, it’s just too much work.
