Reblog if you’ve made at least one friend because of a fandom.
This came into work today. I shortlisted it and displayed it on my cafe counter.
The back said something like “He is into BDSM. (Batman, Dragons, Star Wars, and Magic the Gathering).”
The first paragraph starts like this:“I growl with frustration at my reflection in the mirror. My hair is fifty shades of messed up. Why is it so kinky and out of control? I need to stop sleeping with it wet. As I brush my long brown hair, the girl in the mirror brown eyes too big for her, stares back at me. Wait… my eyes are blue! It dawns on me that I haven’t been looking in the mirror—I’ve been staring at a poster of Kirsten Stewart for the past five minutes. My own hair is fine.”
my own hair is fine
oh my god where can i buy this
I’ve said this many, many times to people. And I’m going to bring it up now. I don’t talk a lot about it in interviews, because this is not what my music’s about. My music is truly about stripping myself and looking at parts of myself. And if they’re used as a mirror, then, you know, so be it, let ‘em be used as that. But I’m going to talk about the um, anti-choice movement for a minute, which is what I call it, because pro-life is not what it’s about. This is not about ‘saving the children.’ Quote, unquote. And I’ll tell you why. It’s very simple. You know how many millions of children in the Columbian sewers, everywhere that I’ve gone in my travels, holding their hands up to be taken home. ‘Take me home.’ The AIDS babies in the wards. Ok, just kids down the street, we can find them down in the city, that have no place, no home. You know why? Because they’re treated like trash. Like smelly cabbage. They’re thrown out. We have millions of children that need homes. So why don’t they give them a home? That’s all I have to say about it. That’s the root of the issue. This idea of bringing the fetus into it, this idea of this, that, and the other thing, Theologically speaking. You can get Theologian on either side arguing their point. Why? It’s boring, it’s a waste of time. And I’ll tell you why it’s a waste of time. Because if people would stop judging the women that were doing it, if they’d stop judging and started looking at themselves, there would be homes for children.
You know, the whole planet has to change. Every movement has things it has to look at. Every movement, including the pro-choice movement. And you know what else this all is, it’s the biggest distraction there is to the poison in our government. They want us, as a country, to be divided on it so that it lets them go and completely use us as a people. We have very little freedom in this country, we don’t know how we’ve been sold out. Sold out. We’re broke. We don’t have much. Let’s be fair about it. Let’s be really honest. We don’t have visionaries that we voted in there. Very few. We have nobody that’s really willing to be honest about it. So yes, they want us to be divided on this issue because then that gives them the room to keep being deceitful. And isn’t it interesting how we bought that big carrot. Because if people don’t want to have an abortion, that has to be completely respected. If people want to adopt all those needy children that need homes, that’s where the work should be done, let’s save the ones that are on the planet. But that’s what the issue’s about. And women, you know, it’s our bodies, we can … you know how I am about that. We’ve been incubators for thousands of years. That’s an incredible threat. But again, you know, women… it’s such a deep issue. It goes beyond what it looks like on the surface. It always does. But I take it to the root on that one. What is this truly about? Those people have so much energy. It could be used to such a wonderful potential, if they would use it. Those people could do such an incredible service. Incredible service. They could really give life to children that are in the sewers. Trashed. Worms crawling on them. Nothing. I’m painting a bleak picture, I’m taking you to the furthest steps. Then there are some that just, you know, are in this country, have no home. That’s where the service should be done. I get really tired of this moralistic crap. Because that’s about them not looking at themselves.

Yes, this was actually a thing that happened before the Affordable Care Act passed. But now, people living with HIV and AIDS have more ways to access education and treatment. Your status won’t determine if you can keep your insurance and you don’t have to worry about being denied coverage.
Reason to love Obamacare? Check.
I’d break boys hearts in these boots
Just when you thought your one-sided relationship with her couldn’t get any better, Beyoncé wrote a feminist essay entitled, “Gender Equality is a Myth.” If this makes you want to go back to school and write about the movement that will ultimately be known as Beyoncism, “the interdisciplinary study of how to make feminism the coolest thing ever,” you are not alone.
