monetizeyourcat: dancepunksnotdead: You know, the one that gives housewives/full-time mothers a pension— wages for housework? It’s ONLY A HUGE VICTORY FOR FEMINISM, SOCIALISM, AND WOMEN OF COLOR. Not a big deal or anything. Tumblr is mysteriously silent about this. http://rabble.ca/columnists/2013/05/venezuelas-new-labour-law-best-mothers-day-gift holy shit!

jadedcattybrownbitch: And while we’re on the subject… This whole thing with automatically jumping to assumptions about someone reblogging something that was made/wrote by someone who did/wrote gross shit in the past has got to stop. This is a fucking huge website with a lot of people using it, and a lot of them don’t keep up with particular users and what they do and say. It’s fine to point...

Playboy: There's a video on YouTube called "Peter Dinklage Gets So Much Pussy" in which two guys talk about how much you've been getting laid since Game of Thrones. They estimate your sexual activity has increased 600 percent in the past few years. Does that sound about right?
Dinklage: It depends. By "pussy" do they mean actual pussy? Or is it a metaphor, like for gardening? Because if that's the case, then yes, I've been doing a lot of gardening lately. If they mean sex, they might be getting me confused with somebody else. But if pussy means wearing old-man sweaters and watering my herb garden, then absolutely, I'm getting so much pussy.

jtoday: Can we STOP doing this already? You can’t just throw two characters onto a page and tell me they were “drawn to each other” and bam they’re in love. For romance to work I have to fall in love with both of them and both of them TOGETHER. I have to like both of their personalities and like how those personalities mix. You can’t just put two humans in a situation and tell me that some...

Exercise doesn't help depression, study concludes →
crackerhell: strugglingtobeheard: kinkyturtle: missvoltairine: tooyoungforthelivingdead: A study into whether physical activity alleviates the symptoms of depression has found there is no benefit. Research published in the British Medical Journal suggests that adding a physical activity intervention to usual care did not reduce symptoms of depression more than usual care alone. This...

sehnsuchttraum: Fuck you, Michael Kinsley. Austerity is not ‘spinach’ and poor people are not children who need to eat theirs. Austerity is adulterating the cheap food with lead, antimony and sawdust and then telling the poisoned to suck it up and eat their bootstraps. And the bootstraps are poisoned too. Socialism isn’t dessert for naughty ungrateful children, and the wealthy are not our...

“So I shouldn’t be surprised that the Mother’s Day Parade shooting has largely been forgotten. On Sunday, shots were fired into a crowd during a parade in the New Orleans 7th ward. Police said they saw three suspects running from the scene. This is the largest mass shooting in the United States where the shooters were still at large after the crime was committed. Think about that for a minute....

commiekinkshamer: i have no problem with pointing out that anyone of any gender can be an abuser, rapist, pedophile etc because that’s absolutely true. but the problem with always emphasizing “yes but it happens to everyone, not just women (or people of colour, or trans* people, etc)!” is that it depoliticizes the issue. violence is not an accident, it is reflective of social power relations...
