This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

YES THIS^^^^^^^^ THANK YOU

“I’ll leave you with this tidbit. 73% of all female characters in the 100 highest grossing films of 2013 were Caucasian, 14% were African American, 5% were Latina, 3% were Asian, and another 3% were aliens or fantasy races. Yes. In 2013, American theater audiences were about as likely to see a woman of an animal species or completely made up race as they were to see an Asian woman.”

Football Player Flaunts Sexual Orientation On Live Television (x)

AJ McCarron didn’t seem to care that television cameras were on him when he decided to flaunt his heterosexual relationship with Katherine Webb.

“All of a sudden they were making out,” said ESPN viewer Roger Jellyton. “I couldn’t believe my eyes, and my children were in the room. How was I supposed to explain what they were seeing? What, that it’s OK for two people who love each other to kiss in a moment of joy and celebration? Ugh. What is this nation coming to? Enough is enough.”

You want to talk about male victims of domestic violence, you need to be able to talk the problem in context with everyday domestic violence.

this is important to know and helping male victims of domestic abuse does not necessitate lying about how often it happens, or assuming that raising awareness about violence against women is *ignoring* violence against men. public health and social analysis is more nuanced than ‘Sally has more cookies than Billy’

"I’m a pathologist, which means that I run the lab, and I’m continually shocked by all the unnecessary lab work that comes my way. Doctors have to find something wrong with you, because preventative measures aren’t sexy. They know that you’re more likely to appreciate them if they tell you something’s wrong, than if they tell you to stop drinking 40 oz sodas."

White people always wanna preach about “sharing cultures” but last time i checked, they spent half their existence sailing around the world murdering people for being different and brainwashing people to stop practicing their owns cultures while forcing assimilation to white culture.

Now you want everyone to happily “share” with you. LOL fuck outta here.

Police continue to make arrests at Ferguson protest.

Part 4.

Take note: The moment people stopped reblogging and tweeting and writing news articles and calling attention to Ferguson, they brought back the armored cars. It is not over. They were waiting for the world to lose interest and knew it would.

This particular set doesn’t make the rounds on Tumblr much, probably because it’s a bit darker in tone - I think it drives the point home a lot better.

Anonymous asked: But the article states the FBI investigation has evidence that Michael Brown reached into the car to fight Wilson. Would Wilson really be a racist coward if someone if someone reached for his gun?

justice4mikebrown:

Wilson’s claim is that he feared for his life.

Did he fear for his life when he told Dorian Johnson and Mike Brown to “get the fuck on the sidewalk”?

Did he fear for his life when he reversed his car to confront them again?

Did he fear for his life when he allegedly grabbed Mike Brown by the neck?

Did he fear for his life when unarmed Mike Brown was running away?

Did he fear for his life when unarmed Mike Brown was 100 ft. away from his car, surrendering with his hands up? 

The whole “Mike Brown reached into the car to fight Darren Wilson/tried to take his gun (which would have had to been out already for Mike to try and take it), failed, ran away, changed his mind, turned around and charged at Wilson after already being shot about 4 times” story doesn’t make any sense. 

Remember, Darren Wilson shot and killed Mike Brown only about 2 1/2 minutes after initially approaching him. If Mike Brown did attack Darren Wilson, why didn’t Wilson write an incident report? Why didn’t he share his side of the story 70 days ago? Why would the PD go out of their way to lie about the distance Mike Brown ran from the car? Why isn’t Mike Brown alive today so he can tell his side of the story? Darren Wilson made sure Mike Brown would never get to tell his side of the story.
