go fucking sign it

This bill that was just past not only effects the gay community it effects everyone in the Tennessee state. In this bill students in schools are legally allowed to bully in the grounds of “protecting their religious freedoms” this means if you are not of the same religion as one person, or are gay, or anything this law says you have the right to bully other students to protect your freedoms. This law is unfathomable in the sense that people will be discriminated by their race, gender, sexuality, and yes other religions. This isn’t just about gay kids. This is about your kids. While I live in Ohio, this can effect thousands of children on a daily basis, submitting them to suicide, depression, violence, and verbal abuse. Stand up and sign this petition to get this ridiculous law taken down IMMEDIATELY. It’s discrimination, dangerous, and frankly CRUEL. No one should live in the fear of being bullied, and no one should have the right to say I can bully someone because it’s not against the law. SIGN IT.
if everyone who reblogged it, signed it, we would of have the signatures done by now.
Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion:
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!
This is making me really sad
Holy shit I didn’t realize there were that few tigers
PROTECT BIG CATS AT ALL COST
I remember seeing a documentary some time ago about declining tiger populations. Although I can’t remember the name of it (or the network), I did find this link which includes lack of prey animals, shrinking habitats, and extremely compromised genetic diversity among the major causes.
SAVE THE GODDAMN BIG KITTIES

In the past few months, debate surrounding the use of racial caricatures as pro sports mascots has reached a fever pitch. Just ask the Washington Redskins, who’ve endured significant backlash for both their refusal to change their name and their half-assed attempts to placate their critics.
But a few miles west, fans of the MLB’s Cleveland Indians are taking a stand. In a motion of solidarity, a small but growing number have been “de-Chiefing” their paraphernalia by removing the offensive “Chief Wahoo” mascot from caps and jerseys that bear its likeness.
I like this a LOT. I don’t know who else can make these teams change at this point other than their own fans.
ignore unnecessary negativity. like “you’re too old to go in the inflatable bouncy castle”. don’t listen to things like that. don’t let them control your life. go into that inflatable castle. bounce around all you want. stare intently at the person who told you you couldn’t go in. while bouncing around. the whole time
It’s a tale as old as time: boy meets girl, they go to a bar, one suggests a game of pool, and the guy does that awesome “wrap around from behind” move to sexy-explain how to hold the stick right. It’s classic! And if Patrick Swayze taught us anything, it’s that the way to a woman’s heart is to do that from-behind-head-to-toe-grind thing, even if it means never finishing a mug. (Vase? Plate? Who even knows what she was making– barely anything before a manly ghost came along to help.)
Like I always say, nothing pairs better with condescending “lessons” than a hearty serving of full-body touching. But guys, don’t restrict yourself to just billiards and pottery; every day is filled with opportunities to firmly press your boner into someone else’s butt cheek! To illustrate just how welcomed and sensuous the experience can be for a woman, look at all these wonderful examples of physical mansplaining in daily life. Note her face! That is the face of aroused gratitude and definitely not the face of someone who is irritated to the verge of physical violence.
