My friend and I were watching “Our Man Bashir” last night, which of course is a wacky holosuite episode. At one point Dax assumes the role of a Sexy Scientist:
Well, those glasses may have said “science” back in the early 90s, but in 2012 they make a very different statement:
NOOOO NO NO NONO FUCK FUCK FUCKIG CBS IS TELLING WOMEN NOT TO REPORT SEXUAL HARASSMENT BECAUSE IT WILL “DAMAGE THEIR CAREERS” and “HARASSMENT IS AN UNFORTUNATE PART OF CLIMBING THE LADDER” I AM SO ANGRY THEY ARE LITERALLY TURNING SEXUAL HARASSMENT INTO A NORM THIS IS NOT OKAY
This is an actual article and I’m still having a hard time believing it’s real.
this is disgusting
I used this image because I’ve seen it posted without a source SO many times. (I’m looking at you Disney fandom)

I’m gonna go ahead and signal boost the living fuck out of this.
ALSO, Chrome has this feature you can add as an extension. It lets you right click on an image and find the source without having to drag the picture on the desk top or without having to copy and paste the link- it just saves time. There is also SauceNao, which I believe is solely for Pixiv sources?
and hey guys there’s a petition to shut down WeHeartIt and it’s right here
wine tastes so bad. I’m convinced the whole world is in on an inside joke together trying to persuade me that wine tastes good to them. there’s no way any one can like the taste of it. it’s like bug spray. the whole frickin world pretends to like bug spray. I don’t understand why. stop the madness
wine is an acquired taste. if you don’t like it, acquire some taste
- people take advantage of your niceness to exploit you as a “source” of information - bombarding you with questions/requests with no respect for your boundaries/limitations
- give you backhanded compliments on your niceness at the expense of less nice “unreasonable”…
You’ve probably seen “trans*” floating around as a “more inclusive” version of trans/transgender. Lately there’s been a lot of talk on Tumblr about the issues with the asterisk as a “more inclusive” term, and I thought I’d try to address everything I can think of in one post.
Here’s the big…
Four Asian Small-clawed Otter pups were born at Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle! The three females and one male received a clean bill of health.
See the video of their first swimming lesson at Zooborns.
I’m sitting in Subway waiting for my shift to start and my work pants are uncomfortable and too tight across my waist. I wish I was at home in my pajamas and I really wish I could cuddle with K right now. Being out and having to wear these restricting clothes and being surrounded by strangers it’s just all really unpleasant.
All-girl barber shop quartet nails it!
Guys. Guys… Did I ever tell you how much I love barbershop quartets and women who can sing? Oh geez. This is too much.
HALEY LOOK WHAT SHOWED UP ON MY DASH!
Guys…. I don’t think you understand how unbelievable this is… There was not one intonation problem in this entire performance. That’s…. well it’s …
i’m here for this
Reblogging again just to emphasize: These ladies are singing an extreeeeemely complex arrangement, and their intonation and tempo is so clean it shines. I just. Can’t. Stop. Watching it.
Now think of how many of those female characters and protagonists are oversexed, created for the male gaze, or put in an inactive damsel role for the plot of the game. Representation matters. A Study last year proved that exposure to tv shows increased the self esteem of young white boys and markedly decreased the confidence and self esteem of girls across the board (and we haven’t even started on the representation of characters of color and the effect it has on children’s self perception).
Video games are a different media, and even more concerning if representation metrics are changing how our kids think of themselves. Especially knowing that 67% of American Households have video game consoles and 91% of Children play video games regularly,how do you think the portrayal (and lack of portrayals) of women and girls in these games is affecting little girls – or influencing how little boys view their importance and/or influence over them?

So I just got back last night from a brony convention in San Francisco. I was working a booth for a vendor friend, and let me tell you what happened:
We met a little girl who was there with her family. She got a button drawn at our booth, told us all about her favorite…
I don’t wanna work i wanna wear pajamas all day i don’t give a FUCK.
