So I was reading the annual scary stories on jez and because I don’t love myself, I started reading one’s from years past. There are a significant amount of stories about racist ghosts.
FACT: most stereotypes about women are a result of men projecting their bullshit insecurity onto others. Case in point, the stereotype that women are emotionally needy.
Yesterday I participated in one of the more questionable aspects of the democratic process, a primary. And I did something totally unexpected (for me), and voted for Hillary.
Dammit, Cosby! Why do your supporters have to pollute my fb feed with their dumb conspiracy theories??? I really didn’t want to spend my afternoon posting RAINN statistics and remembering why I never put my rapists on blast.
In the past few years there has been a disturbing trend in urban/hipster “foodie” circles of Columbusing Korean food in an attempt to cash in on its reputation for unparalleled deliciousness.* And like most examples of greedy cultural appropriation, the trend can be marked by its abyssmal ignorance of the culture…
Reading people say “Who is Bruce Jenner?” (mostly on main pages) and suppose maybe Bruce was some sort of athlete of some sort, but mostly a reality star is driving me up the fucking wall. Bruce Jenner spent a lot of time as one of the most famous athletes in the world, winning the decathlon, a victory that is counted…
I have to attend a wedding today and the ceremony is outside. The high today is 35F...It is 33F degrees right now and falling. Hopefully, the ceremony will be quick? I don't want to leave my home, in which I have a roaring fire in the wood stove...Stay warm, GT!
FUCK THE 3-1-1 LIQUID RULE. I love flying but I hate hate hate the liquids bullshit. Stop the security theater. LET ME BRING MY MOISTURIZER IN ITS ORIGINAL CONTAINER, YOU ASSHOLES.
I'm moving for school. I applied for the perfect apartment and they want to give it to me. However, because I'm going to be a student with juuuuust enough income to pass the "income should be three times the rent cost" rule, they need rental references from my current and former landlord.
TW: Graphic bruisey photos ahead
All the blogs (and some of the subblogs) are guilty of this (saying 'Oh It's Gawker' dismisses how much this is accepted everywhere on Gawker media) and I think people are way too comfortable making fun of older people—or even just anyone that is older than they are. This is really low though and totally uncalled for,…
This morning, we posted NBC anchor Mary Carillo's 2004 rant about badminton because we had never seen it before and we wanted to share it with the world. Carillo just wrote an email to us, explaining how that monologue made it on the air:
Dear Archive Of Our Own,
1) How does a kitty duck??? I have scored and scalded mine, and then remembered some sort of sugary glaze should be going on top and so have been painting my duck with spicy mango sauce. This better fucking work, I want to eat duck, dammit.
I’m probably irrationally pissed off about an asshole IT guy at work but I just need to vent. As you all know I’ve been a bit on edge lately. It’s the day after Christmas, I didn’t get enough sleep, there are like 4 people here, I get it being at work sucks. The difference between me and asshole IT guy is I can fake…
80 dollars later and the vet has no idea why my cat still has inflammation in her mouth after having almost all of her teeth removed 6 months ago and said that I have to take her to a dental specialist. UUUGHHHH. I also think she got super offended when I asked if there was a possibility if there was tooth left in…
I don't even know why I want one.
I am those freaks who listen to Christmas Music voluntarily in their spare time. I know the cool thing to do is complain about Christmas Music, but I just can't hate it. I have fond memories of listening to the radio play non-stop Christmas Music, and I have nothing bad to say about fond memories.
I have just returned from reading the comments on this io9 article about the fun video from Not Literally about crazy ships.
Fuck you. Fuck the horse you rode in on. Fuck its stable. Fuck the blacksmith who shoed it. Fuck your haircut. Fuck your old lady style. Fuck the disapproving looks you used to give me that said, "You're too fat and ugly to live." Fuck the disapproving looks you give me now that say, "Aren't you a bit above…
