dorianisms: I find them terrifying, but oddly fascinating, y’know? They are just so…out there. There’s something otherworldly about them. Then, of course, you realize there actually are people writing these things, and thinking like that, and it becomes ONE HUNDRED PER CENT HORROR, but…I dunno. Anyway. If you want to see these comics for yourself, this link has a bunch of them available as .pdf...

dorianisms: telegantmess: Someone please explain to me why it is suddenly my responsibility to back down and “be the adult” in regards to my mother? Seriously. I have spent the last decade telling her that something she does hurts me and her telling me that if I didn’t like how she treats me, then maybe we shouldn’t have a relationship. She is the one that taught me that you can’t control what...

Brilliant analysis and take-down of AZ Senator Russel Pearce’s plan to attack the 14th Amendment. From Racewire: Pearce writes in one e-mail: “I also intend to push for an Arizona bill that would refuse to accept or issue a birth certificate that recognizes citizenship to those born to illegal aliens, unless one parent is a citizen.” One of the more remarkable e-mails sent to a list of...
Zuckerberg needs your data. His business is built upon it. The most important...– Lyons, on Facebook (via newsweek) What I don’t understand is why we can’t all just band together and culture jam the fuck out of our profiles, making them all but useless as inventory.

ilykadamen: thingsimreading: waifsworld: I’ll probably get my ass handed to me for this…but I have that same prejudice about women who get boob jobs. I cannot believe they choose to have expensive surgery to have their breasts enlarged, for any independent reason, except because of the patriarchal society’s fascination with breasts and their idea of attractiveness is dictated to them, by...

mohamedn: livingathomenow:thingsimreading: if we tell you it’s offensive, it’s offensive. no matter how much “freedom” you have to express your offensive views/actions. they are still offensive. and the answer to a (any) marginalized group telling you that your views/actions are offensive should not be “nuh uh! is not!” nor “but i have freedom of speech!” with every right comes a...

ilykadamen: I don’t mean to make it sound like those are unreasonable, wacky feelings to have. I do think they’re privileged feelings to have. I know this is something I’ve done with other topics. Somebody says something about white allies being a fucked-up mess, and I’m all, “Hey! I’m not a fucked-up mess!” And thus I have proven the point, because one of the reasons white allies are fucked-up...
