So my housemate sometimes has parties...
Scene: I, coming back from Rocky Horror Picture Show at 4am, walk in and notice tasty-looking cupcakes on the table. The guy (dressed as a hippie) that was smoking weed four hours ago was still there.
Me (to the room): Hey, is there anything untowards about these cupcakes? Is there any weed in them or anything?
Hippie guy (quickly and excitedly): WHERE?
snailshell-deactivated20101227 asked: I don't know how many times I've seen your URL and not realized it was Spanish. Fifth of nothing, right? Is there any significance?
clientsfromhell: Client: “Why is the text slanty?” Me: “It is in italics.” Client: “No, it is slanty.” Me: “It’s called italics.” Client: “I don’t care what you call it, make it stop.”
Google "Male Privilege" →
davidmalki: This is something it took me a long time to realize, and I was horrified when I did. Women on the internet have it way shittier than dudes do. I’m sorry, we can make noises about why that shouldn’t be the case (and it shouldn’t!) or why it’s better to pretend that’s not the case, but the simple fact is, ladies get creepy shit said about them all day, every day, by horrible people,...
In case anyone was confused...
(because someone was already) Also, snailshell, you should probably not read this. I honestly don’t want to bias you, because the movie should have a fair shot. So come back afterwards. Now that that’s done with (you’re not reading, right snailshell?)… This: is Emperor’s New Groove. It is the bomb-diggety, one of the funniest movies to come out of Disney, and...
Watch "Out In The Silence" on Hulu (Free and HD) →
[via] “Follows the story of a small American town confronting a firestorm of controversy ignited by a same-sex wedding announcement in the local newspaper.” Instant queued.
I am a terrible person.
So remember that prof/class that I complained about on Tumblr/Twitter earlier? Well today in class I was really tired and sleepy, and not in the mood for said class, and was generally a bad student. Then this afternoon, I checked my e-mail, and there was a message from her - not berating me for not paying attention, not being disappointed in me for disrespecting her, none of that. She asked if...
"No means yes, yes means anal"
screamedatthemakebelieve: sheresists: tranzient: aaronitron: This is a chant that was yelled at women by men from a Yale fraternity. Though the president of the frat has apologized, I do not think that a simple apology is enough for the blatant misogyny and approval of rape by these men. Sign this petition to tell the administration of Yale to do something about this, more than just a...
OkCupid: Gay versus Straight Trends →
aaronitron: fuckyeahmenfolk: I don’t know if you’ve ever seen dating site OkCupid’s trend posts before, but their always fascinating. This post is doubly so, as it debunks a lot of stereotypes about gay men and women. Highly recommended read, especially for statistics/fancy chart geeks. This is awesomeeeee
National Coming Out Day Redux
After a discussion with one of my Twitter friends about my “coming out” post, I wanted to add a couple things. Firstly, I want to be clear that I don’t advocate coming out in a situation where it would be dangerous or damaging to do so - unfortunately, many LGBTQ persons are in such a position. It’s each person’s decision to weigh the discomfort and risks involved...
Today is National Coming Out Day
This is what Harvey Milk said in his “That’s What America Is” speech in San Francisco on July 25, 1978: Gay brothers and sisters…you must come out. Come out…to your parents…I know that it is hard and will hurt them but think about how they will hurt you in the voting booth! Come out to your relatives…come out to your friends…if indeed they are your...

Firefighters watch as home burns to the ground →
azspot: Imagine your home catches fire but the local fire department won’t respond, then watches it burn. That’s exactly what happened to a local family tonight. A local neighborhood is furious after firefighters watched as an Obion County, Tennessee, home burned to the ground. The homeowner, Gene Cranick, said he offered to pay whatever it would take for firefighters to put out the flames,...
