Because a man has to be a sociopath to love a woman with cellulite. Fuck this world. 

If all residents of hell look like Scarlett Johansson, I renounce my atheism and take up Satanism

whoever wrote this needs to be punched. a lot.

breaking news: man somehow isn’t repulsed at the sight of his beautiful, talented girlfriend because she has a bumpy texture on a bit of her legs

This just in: reporter unaware of how the female human body stores fat, having never seen one up close before.

If that’s what Hell looks like, I feel better about inevitably going there

Party in hell!! :D

Shocking news!!! Not all men are misogynistic assholes who only think of women’s bodies as objects meant to make their tiny little penises hard. Somebody figure out who wrote this and take away his internet privileges, please.

THIS OKAY

You want to get kids out of foster care and into good, loving homes? I’ve got a simple solution to your problem.

Did you know LGBT couples are more likely to adopt older, children of color and disable children than straight couples? LGBT couples tend to adopt ‘undesired’ children more (basically kids no one else wants.)

"I don’t know who wrote this review "For anyone obsessed with the Romanovs, this is the best book you’ll ever find", but oh my God! This book has beloved, sweet Maria having SEX with a soldier who plans to rescue her (typical, ridiculously inaccurate old story repeated numerous times), but I flipped when I read “Olga was defiled on the Rus”. OLGA, TATIANA NOR ANASTASIA WERE DEFILED ON THE RUS THIS IS A LIE THAT WAS PURPORTED BY THE BOLSHEVIK GUARDS. DISGUSTING! Also, in the opening chapter the author writes Russia was praying for seven years prior to Maria’ birth for an heir; Nicky and Alix wed in 1894, Maria born 1899 - this speaks volumes to the historical veracity.I think perhaps what upsets me most—besides Olga being sexually assaulted—was that writers think—consciously or unconsciously-a woman’s life story is not worth telling if she didn’t fall in love, or have sex, or make out. "Marie" writes she’s happy she wont die a virgin.It just makes me sad that a beautiful amazing story like Maria’s is water-downed in not only a bland characterization, but as girl almost wholly concerned about love and sex, as if that is what makes her a real woman. (also, wouldn’t the real Maria have been smart enough to know having sex can result in pregnancy and endanger the lives of her family? Not that the real Maria would (she wouldn’t!), but besides the impossibility of privacy at Ipatiev and Maria’s prim Victorian upbringing, there’s no way can see her risking her family’s lives or possibility of a pregnancy just so she wont die a virgin)The author mentions Helen Rappaport and Greg King as sources. In Rappaport’s new OTMA biography, she omitted the mention of this unfounded salacious rumour of Maria being caught in a “compromising position” with a guard, after Rappaport wrote of the baseless rumour (she uses the word *”alleged”*)in her Ekaterinburg book. As if Maria was worrying she was going to die a virgin.. Also, Greg King and Penny Wilson’s book “The Fate of the Romanovs” talks of the Bolshevik allegations OTMA was sexually assaulted, but they themselves have said on APTM that in their research they found it UNtrue.Books like this, “Tsarina’s Daughter” and “Anastasia’s Secret” portray Maria, Tatiana and Anastasia, respectively, as bland characters unlike in personality to their historical basis, having unprotected and thoughtless sex like a 21st century uneducated girl. Sex doesn’t bother me in ANY way as long as it’s legal and safe, but portraying OTMA like this is so inaccurate - and having Olga sexually assaulted is INSULTING to her memory!Save your cash on better Romanov books i.e. this one about Maria!!: The Lost Crown by Sarah Miller —a virtually if not completely accurate retelling of OTMA, with NO fictionalizations, lauded as a great novel by Kirkus, School Library Journal, and Booklist (the true voice of Maria is heard, the book is told alternately in each of Maria, Olga, Tatiana, and Anastasia’s voices! Miller vividly tells Maria’s unique tale of traveling across Siberia to Yekaterinburg).” (quote from a review) 
NOTE: this author also STOLE Ally Kumari/Alenka’s ( imperial-russia) artwork to promote her book without crediting Ally or asking permission

You know the reason I really think the Romanovs haven’t gotten a TV series/mini-series out of any cable channel when families like the Tudors, the Borgias, even Mary, Queen of Scots on the CW (!) have is because of the lack of sex. Nicholas and Alexandra were faithful to each other throughout their marriage and the five children were (very) devout Orthodox Christians raised in a strict Victoria upbringing. They died virgins. And I’m pretty sure they didn’t regret that.
In today’s media culture at least (after all there are still millions of devout Orthodox teenagers in Russian and elsewhere) both of these facts are tough to wrap one’s head around and so they pretend its not true or its true but in their version its not true.
Also -c’mon much of what we know about the family in Ekateriburg came straight from the boastful notes/memories of their murderers after the fact who butchered them in a way that we would not hesitate to call them mass murderers or terrorists today. So I take ANYTHING they say with a grain of salt. 

Blech, reminds me of that YA book released a couple of years back told from the perspective of a teenage boy hiding in the same attic as Anne Frank, and how he wants to have sex with her.

DC Comics Thinks Their T-Shirts Suck Too

dcwomenkickingass:

Since I started this blog four years ago I’ve reported on problematic merchandise featuring DC Comics IP too many times to mention. And it seems to go the same way:

1. Post on item

2. Get worked over in comments, Twitter and comics forums by people stating one or more of the following:

  • feminists have no sense of humor aka “Ah yes, more, more bullsh*t from the feminist brigade”
  • that there are “real problems” in the world and question why “this is even an issue”
  • I’m a woman and have no problem with it
  • I showed it to my wife/daughter/girlfriend/mother and they had no problem with it
  • You “misinterpreted” the item 
  • comics are for dudes so get over it
  • why did I ignore that other thing so clearly I am a selective journalist that just hates DC and finally, always a favorite,
  • I’m an ugly bitch SJW feminazi who needs a good dickin’

And yup all that stuff got said this week when I posted about a t-shirt featuring Wonder Woman and Superman that basically elicited a huge EWWWW from most people who saw it.

Coincidentally another t-shirt popped this week that state the wearer was “training to be Batman’s wife”.

And that got an equal amount of disgust.

But this time? This time DC Comics responded to the issue and we got this:

DC Comics is home to many of the greatest male and female Super Heroes in the world. All our fans are incredibly important to us, and we understand that the messages on certain t-shirts are offensive. We agree. Our company is committed to empowering boys and girls, men and women, through our characters and stories. Accordingly, we are taking a look at our licensing and product design process to ensure that all our consumer products reflect our core values and philosophy.

I have to admit I’m surprised to not only see them comment but acknowledge the problem and say they will try and fix it.

Good job, DC.
