Charlo “F—-k it, I quit” Greene Lights A Joint Live On Air

After announcing she was leaving her job at the KTVA station in Anchorage, Alaska, by telling viewers, “F—k it, I quit,” she joined HuffPost Live on Thursday and smoked a joint live on the air.

"I’ll spark up right now. It is what it is. I’m in the privacy of my own home."

So yes, that happened.

This brought tears to my eyes. This man is more patriotic than any of those Fox ‘news’ commentators. Fuck them. Fuck their propaganda. Fuck their sexism. Fuck their racism.

Seen on Facebook. I love these replies. Most of the people were saying it’s horrible that this person is defending their father, and ‘blaming’ the mother. They said things about this person now views violence as okay, etc. etc.

I agree with both of these comments. Violence in a relationship happens but it doesn’t make either party a bad person or exclusively ‘to blame’ and I think that’s what the person is trying to say. The parents had an abusive relationship, it was not one sided but they’ve healed and the whole family has moved past that low point in their lives.

Just as one would not say ‘I believe in gravity,’ one should not proclaim ‘I believe in evolution.’

Gaza’s Education in Rubble
The morning roll call will be a particularly morbid affair on the first day of school in Gaza this Sunday. Hundreds of students, killed in the recent fighting, will be forever marked absent.
Many students are too badly injured or maimed to attend the first day of school. And thousands of students will need to adjust to sharing schools that escaped damage, because their old school now lies in rubble or remains a shelter for displaced families.
According to the United Nations and Gaza’s Ministry of Education, 228 school buildings were damaged to varying degrees during the latest fighting—143 government schools, 75 schools run by the UN, and 10 private schools – including 26 severely damaged or destroyed.
Priorities right now include clearing school buildings of any leftover explosive remnants from the fighting, and ensuring that displaced families living inside many dozens of schools find suitable alternative shelter. Textbooks and furniture will also need to be quickly replaced.
Gaza’s schools were already overstretched before the fighting, with a shortage of almost 200 schools. Around 90 percent of schools will now be running on a double shift, cutting each student’s school hours to just four hours each day. The school year is already starting three weeks late, and students will have weeks of psycho-social counselling and support before they are ready to study the regular curriculum. These students face tough challenges if they are to catch up with their compatriots in the West Bank in time for competitive exams next year.

I’d like to see Sarkeesian try and find a way to tackle MMOs, where what do you know, there are in all likelihood MORE female characters running around than males.

I’ve been playing with my (AWESOME) female character in Skyrim for god knows how long. And her trusty sidekick, Serana, by her side.
But she would CHOOSE to be a female character, fight someone (a man of course), and then complain about sexism, misogyny and all the usual stuff.


Oh my. People need to learn balence.There is alot of sexism,but we go after the popular games that are really innocent,mostly the gamemakers themselves,it would mainly be guys telling girls things.And of course the good old fantasy female armor xD.Because,metal bra and panties soooo work for armor

There’s a funny thing about the whole “bikini plate” debate you’re missing. You have no right to tell a game creator he can’t design the armor to look like that. It’s called artistic liberty, and feminist morality has no place in it.

^^^
The concept of plate bikinis and the typical feminist reaction makes me laugh. One of my close friends is a graphic designer for Dawngate, she’s created about half the playable roster and skins (Even the sexy ones). In her free time she buffs her incredible portfolio with nude, overly sexualized women.
Female game designer, willingly creating the feminist nightmare. I love it.

Ask female gamers what their characters in games like Saints Row are wearing. Mine’s still wearing her cheerleader outfit.

My characters are *always* female and almost always have large breasts and tiny waists and skimpy fucking outfits. They also carry battle axes and kick ass so i don’t see the problem there. Hell all of my custom characters in Soul Caliber are female and I call them My Harem…that would drive a feminist up a wall lol

So I got my new binder

This is me in my usual bra, note the 34D/32DD boobs.

And here is the binder, almost completely flat.

This thing is awesome.  It is remarkably comfortable, too.  Feels a bit like wearing a sports bra. I got it from Love Boat, this one(http://www.lesloveboat.com/shop/product_info.php?products_id=122&osCsid=57cc209b6d95c6c3efa2d87a2325b6c2)

WOAH.

Reblogging again for my trans* and genderfluid buddies and also all female cosplay friends.

As a person with 38DD/E breasts and who has never worn a binder THESE THINGS ARE LIKE VOODOO MAGIC TO ME!
