Cleaning out my wardrobe… Beginning to wonder whether I ever wore anything that wasn’t a black band tshirt……
Most important NFL commercial to date!
Fuck yes. This gave me chills <3
OMG yes, this, so much of this. I have a friend who is Lakota Sioux and he was recently telling me about how he and his family had been involved in the debate around the UND mascot “The Fighting Sioux.”
There are so many mascots out there, in college and professional sports that are so offensive.
*CHEERS THUNDEROUSLY FOR THIS COMMERCIAL*
I tend to stay quiet when it comes to social justice and Tumblr politics, but this is important. When an entire people tell you to stop using them as a mascot, you need to stop.
I don’t understand why the idea that “people are not mascots” is hard to grasp.
if ur hair covers ur boobs u have mermaid hair and u are a mermaid i dont make the rules
This shits just ridiculous. Probably the worst torture in the history of torture.
SAND FLOOR ROOM
So basically it’s a torture device, where a person is put into a room with slow moving sand-paper at the bottom. There is no way out.
The person has to walk forward to keep from getting send to the corner and scraped.
Eventually after days of walking, the person will get tired and won’t be able to anymore.
What happens next, is pretty gruesome and self-explanatory.
I´m a writer I whisper as I secretly find this extremely fascinating
holy shit that’s horrific
I think the only point in time in life where these would be life saving…..
FUCK I JUST SPAT OUT MY FUCKING RAMEN
He actually DID thank trans people, and fucking everyone else in the LGBT community and any other person that has ever suffered some sort of judgement.
Why hasn’t anybody noticed that part of the speach?
I hate it when people STILL pick at things when there is nothing to pick at.
There is EVERYTHING to pick at. He’s regularly made demeaning and damaging comments about the trans* community due to his own ignorance.
In his acceptance speech he singled out people at risk from violence in places like the Ukraine, yet didn’t directly mention trans* people. In fact, I don’t think the syllable “trans” has ever left his lips in any on the record speech of his. Which is just crazy. He is in a position to help move forward people’s understanding of these issues and he’s knowingly perpetuated the “man in a dress” stereotype.
If we do consider he means the LGBT community specifically here, he’s conflating gender expression with sexual orientation too, which is something that he had apparently discussed with some non-binary people at a recent event he attended. They had hoped he would address some of this in his speech. Nope.
I literally cannot believe that people consider this inclusive.

wowwww how did this photo even happen
i’m watching michael mcintyre and I CAN’T DRINK MY TEA because i’m laughing so much i keep dribbling it out
took the bus home,
carried both bags with two good arms back to my studio apartment
and cooked myself dinner.
You and I may have different definitions of a good day.
This week, I paid my rent and my credit card bill,
worked 60 hours between my two jobs,
only saw the sun on my cigarette breaks
and slept like a rock.
Flossed in the morning,
locked my door,
and remembered to buy eggs.
My mother is proud of me.
It is not the kind of pride she brags about at the golf course.
She doesn’t combat topics like, ”My daughter got into Yale”
with, ”Oh yeah, my daughter remembered to buy eggs”
But she is proud.
See, she remembers what came before this.
The weeks where I forgot how to use my muscles,
how I would stay as silent as a thick fog for weeks.
She thought each phone call from an unknown number was the notice of my suicide.
These were the bad days.
My life was a gift that I wanted to return.
My head was a house of leaking faucets and burnt-out lightbulbs.
Depression, is a good lover.
So attentive; has this innate way of making everything about you.
And it is easy to forget that your bedroom is not the world,
That the dark shadows your pain casts is not mood-lighting.
It is easier to stay in this abusive relationship than fix the problems it has created.
Today, I slept in until 10,
cleaned every dish I own,
fought with the bank,
took care of paperwork.
You and I might have different definitions of adulthood.
I don’t work for salary, I didn’t graduate from college,
but I don’t speak for others anymore,
and I don’t regret anything I can’t genuinely apologize for.
And my mother is proud of me.
I burned down a house of depression,
I painted over murals of greyscale,
and it was hard to rewrite my life into one I wanted to live
But today, I want to live.
I didn’t salivate over sharp knives,
or envy the boy who tossed himself off the Brooklyn bridge.
I just cleaned my bathroom,
did the laundry,
called my brother.
Told him, “it was a good day."
