Two Lesbians Raised A Baby And This Is What They Got
I got goosebumps from this.
he just accepts it, not even surprised by it. must happen all the time
I’m sure everyone has heard about the great Lake Baikal, and if you haven’t,boy, are you missing out.
This ancient lake, which is about 25 million years old, and thought to be the oldest in the world, contains 20% of the world’s unfrozen fresh water. That’s right, it contains just 1% less fresh water than all the Great Lakes combined,while it’s surface area is over 7 times smaller.
Why is that, you ask? It’s because Lake Baikal is the deepest lake in the world: It’s maximum depth is 1642 meters, which is deep enough for the Eiffel Tower to stand on itself 5 times and not reach the surface.
But it gets better: the Lake Baikal is among the clearest lakes of the world, so you can see the bottom to a depth of nearly 40 meters, and you can drink right from it, no purifying needed. Furthermore, Lake Baikal sustains 2630 different species of animals and plants, 80% of which are unique to it, and can’t be found anywhere else.
Oh, and by the way? Under both the lake and it’s underwater sediment some of Earth’s tallest mountains(plural!) are submerged, their height over 7000 meters.
Lake Baikal is perhaps one of the world’s most amazing, awe-inspiring, and unique locations, and I would seriously recommend everybody who has some free time on their hands to discover more on their own.
Lake Baikal has seals, even though it’s more than a thousand miles from any ocean. No one’s really sure how they got there.
have we fucked this up yet? we’re going to fuck this up
NY under water.
The eye-catching swimming pool in Mumbai, India, has been built to raise awareness about the threat of sea level rises as a result of global warming.
It was constructed by attaching a giant aerial photograph of the New York City skyline to the floor of the pool.
In a piece for the New York Times, Angelina Jolie revealed she underwent a preventative double mastectomy. I’m not going to summarize it here because you should hear it coming from her. If you haven’t yet read it, you really should read it right now here.
Angelina Jolie shared a personal story in hopes of raising awareness on a number of issues, from the surgery itself to the affordability of the gene test…
…wait. what’s that coming just over those hills? Why, it’s the sexists and misogynists! Because you see WOMEN’S HEALTH is not about the WOMAN, people! It’s about the poor menz who are now ‘stuck’ with their (as in ownership of, don’t your forget it!) woman!
(Throw in a dash of racism with your misogyny? Hell, why not!)
Everyone couldn’t be the first to think of “poor Brad Pitt” like Josh above, but man did the tweets thinking of “poor Brad Pitt” keep coming…
“He lost *his* ‘tittays’.” Poor Brad Pitt lost something he apparently owned, Angelina Jolie’s breasts themselves! And, yes, people (i.e. virgins) mourned her boobs themselves as if Angelina Jolie was some sort of villain who had some diabolical reason behind doing this.
“I bet he wished he stayed with Jen now.” Oh, boy. You mean to tell me some losers used lower her risk for breast cancer as a way to attack Angelina Jolie over Jennifer Aniston?, you ask. No, I mean to tell you that MANY losers used lowering her risk for breast cancer as a way to attack Angelina Jolie over Jennifer Aniston. (And if you assumed there would be “karma” tweets, you assumed correctly!)
Here’s a slew of folks who think Angelina Jolie removed her breasts because she’s an “attention whore”! Because nothing says good publicity in Hollywood like already being a sex icon and then going ahead and having your breasts removed…
If none of the winners above quite did it for you, here’s a mish-mash of really smart people. Just replace “smart” with “dumb, thank you…
Yeah, Angelina. I can’t believe you didn’t even TAKE THE RISK OF CANCER just so Brad Pitt can enjoy your (which he owns, don’t forget) boobs while having sex. Because, don’t forget girls, you’re just sexual play toys for men and nothing more!
Too bad you got the story completely wrong. I call you a douchebag.
Yes, because without breasts, there are absolutely no good reasons whatsoever for a guy to stay with their significant other…
Yup. You hear that, ladies? Without your boobs / bewbz / tits / tittys / rack / fun bags / whatever other dumb terms these fine people use for a woman’s breasts…you are apparently pointless.
Except, you’re not. Screw these haters who’ve probably never seen a bare breast in their life. And good for you, Angelina. It’s your life and your body, no one else’s.
This post is a great compilation of these horrid tweets, just goes to show how many people are thinking this way.
oh man aggressively ordering me to do something i’m already doing/planning to do is pretty much guaranteeing that i’m going to stop doing it and take the time to just stare at you with a half blank half incredulous expression on my face
Hannah Gadsby on rape culture. (x)
How to make a joke involving rape:
mock rape culture (aka bring awareness), NOT the victim
(boost the signal)
Charles Ramsey is a hero. He doesn’t wear a suit of high-tech armor. He doesn’t wear a cape. He’s just an ordinary guy,living an ordinary life.
Then, he saw a woman asking for help.
And he helped her.
He didn’t walk away.
He didn’t think of himself.
He just helped her.
It took less than a day for someone to make this heroic man into a joke.
As proud as Charles Ramsey makes me to be a human, those people make me ashamed.
No, he doesn’t speak perfectly.
No, he didn’t take the time to fix his hair before he went on camera.
He’s an African American man from an economically depressed neighborhood, city, and state.
And for that, he’s mocked and ridiculed.
It breaks my heart.
Now, in yet another heroic moment Mr. Ramsey’s response to Anderson Cooper’s inquiry about a possible reward Charles has proven he’s truly worthy of the hero mantle.
No, no, no. Bro, I’m a Christian, an American, and just like you. We bleed same blood, put our pants on the same way. It’s just that you got to put that – being a coward, and I don’t want to get in nobody’s business. You got to put that away for a minute…I tell you what you do, give [the reward] to them. Because if folks been following this case since last night, you been following me since last night, you know I got a job anyway. Just went picked it up, paycheck. What that address say? […] 2203 Seymour. Where are them girls living? Right next door to this paycheck. So yes, take that reward and give it to—that little girl[.]
Thank you Charles Ramsey.Thank you.The full interview w/ Anderson Cooper can be found here.
As a Clevelander, I am sadden for the things my city is known for. For those not following closely, 11 bodies — Women of Color - were found in Anthony Sowell’s basement in 2009. There’s a book that address this problem called Nobody’s Women. Cleveland officials responded by saying that more would be done to find missing women and children, more resources dedicated to this pursuit. The reaction the the 911 operator seriously concerns me. But, there is something else that just makes me sick.
As I’ve seen pointed out on Tumblr many times, missing white children get a lot more attention in Cleveland media than children of other races. Ramsey touched on the issue of race with his comments during his initial interview when he said when a white girl is running to a black man, you know something is wrong. There are serious race issues that go un-addressed in Cleveland to the point that we don’t spend time and resources equally among races and likely gender which doesn’t just create unjust situations it leads to rapes and murder.
Ramsey is a hero, and people like him are the reason why I know there is still a lot of good in Cleveland despite these horrors.
But we need to do better.
EDITED TO ADD: AND I DARE ANY OF THESE REPUBLICANS WHO SAY YOU CAN’T GET PREGNANT FROM A TRUE RAPE TO EXPLAIN THIS. EXPLAIN THIS.
Ramsey for Congress.
