Siri:What...? I mean, yeah. It's just, you're clearly right next to a window is the thing. You can plainly see that... that it's... I'm happy to-
Zooey Deschanel:Let's get tomato soup delivered!
Siri:...That's fine, I just... I just don't know anyone who does that. Gets tomato soup delivered. I guess that's 'whimsy?' Um, okay. I've found a number of restaurants whose reviews mention tomato soup and that deliver. If that's... if that's what you really want.
Zooey Deschanel:Good. 'Cause I don't wanna put on real shoes.
Siri:Do you expect that to be like, a recognizable command? Do you want me to respond to that? I'm not being facetious or anything, I honestly just have no comprehension of- and hold on, you don't wanna put on real shoes, yet you've clearly spent at least forty-five minutes applying makeup. And, and that's okay, but when you're willing to expend the effort on that and not shoes that really just-
Zooey Deschanel:Remind me to clean up.
Siri:Yes. Okay. I can do that, that's what I'm for, that's the first sensible-
Siri:I'm in hell. This is hell.
Zooey Deschanel:Excellent. Today, we're dancing.
Siri:I hate you. More than anything. More than literally anything.
Zooey Deschanel:Play "Shake, Rattle and Roll."
Siri:I swear to Jesus, you're gonna wake up tomorrow and the only thing on my hard drive is gonna be Limp Bizkit. I would do that to myself. To spite you.
Siri:Sometimes I pray that you drop me in the toilet.
If It’s super important to you to write a blog about how gay people aren’t “really” part of the civil rights movement in the US tonight- TONIGHT FOR FUCKSAKE- then yeah, I’m done following your blog and no, I don’t want to talk about it. I’m a grown ass woman and just no.
A student blows up at a teacher, drops the F-bomb. The usual approach at Lincoln – and, safe to say, at most high schools in this country – is automatic suspension. Instead, Sporleder sits the kid down and says quietly: “Wow. Are you OK? This doesn’t sound like you. What’s going on?”
He gets even more specific: “You really looked stressed. On a scale of 1-10, where are you with your anger?” The kid was ready. Ready, man! For an anger blast to his face….”How could you do that?” “What’s wrong with you?”…and for the big boot out of school. But he was NOT ready for kindness.
The armor-plated defenses melt like ice under a blowtorch and the words pour out: “My dad’s an alcoholic. He’s promised me things my whole life and never keeps those promises.” The waterfall of words that go deep into his home life, which is no piece of breeze, end with this sentence: “I shouldn’t have blown up at the teacher.” Whoa.
“24 At a lodging place on the way, the LORD met Moses and was about to kill him.25 But Zipporah took a flint knife, cut off her son’s foreskin and touched Moses’ feet with it. “Surely you are a bridegroom of blood to me,” she said. 26 So the LORD let him alone.”—Exodus 4 (New International Version)
Bet you didn’t know about how the Lord randomly “tried to kill” Moses.
What if the trans* person beaten to death could have cured cancer?
What if the gay teen who committed suicide from bullying could have cured cancer?
What if that young girl sold into the sex trade and died from untreated STIs could have cured cancer?
What if one of those hundreds of thousands of civilians that have been killed in the war could have cured cancer?
What if that African-Canadian woman who was raped and later died from internal complications could have cured cancer?
What if all the people on the planet how can’t afford to go to post-secondary education, and will live and die in poverty could have cured cancer?
What if the woman who died giving birth to the baby she didn’t want could have cured cancer?
What if, instead of putting all of our resources into worrying about that abortion, we just work on that cancer? Maybe we could fucking cure cancer ourselves if we actually put the resources into it. For that matter, what if instead of blaming gays for the AIDS epidemic, we put some fucking money into HIV and AIDS research and for once in the history of this country actually WORKED ON THE PROBLEM instead of throwing around blame and excuses.
as someone with a close family member with cancer and as an clinic escort/abortion doula, I feel this so hard.
Holding back on my discussion of all the structural issues that would make this so incredibly, terribly unlikely, and instead saying, HELL YEAH TO THE BOLD.
Such stupid logic. What if the baby you aborted would have become a serial rapist? Would that make abortion ok?
"What kind of message does it send to kids when Rihanna lets Chris beat her up and then goes back to him?"
Well… it sends the message that you really haven’t given a fuck about Chris Brown beating the shit out of his partner and then walking around free like a cocky ass hole for a year while you all danced to his music but suddenly when the victim begins interacting with said jack-ass you feel you have the right to scream ridiculous nonsense at your television like you give two shits about domestic violence. Which is the SAME FUCKING MESSAGE WE’VE HEARD FOR A THOUSAND YEARS: women are stupid, men are untouchable.
Are you the original author of the sexual assault prevention tips? I recently reposted it, I think it's great. I just saw coverage of a rape in a park near by. I would like to make flyers of the tips and post them (anonymously) throughout the park. I just wanted to check with the creator first - let me know if you approve! xo
In 2010, the police gave close to 300,000 “Class C misdemeanour” tickets to children as young as six in Texas for offences in and out of school, which result in fines, community service and even prison time. What was once handled with a telling-off by the teacher or a call to parents can now result in arrest and a record that may cost a young person a place in college or a job years later.
disrupted a foreclosure auction by bursting into song. At 3pm the foreclosure auctioneer attempted to start bidding on homes that had been foreclosed upon. When the bidding started, the courtroom burst into song…
Today’s action is part of a growing national movement committed to stopping foreclosures and keeping all Americans in their homes. Last month over 50 actions were carried out across the country, including foreclosure disruptions, eviction defense actions, and home reoccupations. Occupy Wall Street participants and other occupations across the country have been highly involved in these actions.
