some of the most sensitive areas of the female body

look at all the regions that are not titties and vagina guys
porn has lied to you. there are other places you can touch that sensitive and pleasurable. 

Oh yeah because I’m just gonna rub her eyes until a she’s horny

Kiss her there you walnut! Use tenderness! Hold her face gently and stroke her eyelids with your thumb and then kiss them! Run your hands down to her neck when you do! THINK!!! Lordie, you have a lot to learn that TOUCH gives more than making her “horny” you’ll drive her nuts doing gentle stuff! It’s trust! It’s care! It’s sensitivity! *smacks your forehead* You want her to be numb in complete ecstasy! I know this shit and I’m ASEXUAL! 

Reblogging purely for the beautiful use of the word “walnut” as an insult.

But coming in here talking this common sense, tho

nonstandardrepertoire:

friendly reminder that the first usage of singular they cited in the OED is in 1526
friendly reminder that Shakespeare, Austen, Thackeray, and Shaw all used singular they
friendly reminder that “his or her” constructions exclude many trans individuals
friendly reminder that if you argue that singular they is “grammatically incorrect”, you are putting adherence to an arbitrary system of rules higher than the wellbeing of actual humans

to add on to this:
friendly reminder that Chaucer used singular they in “The Canterbury Tales,” which was written in the late 1300s. (In one such story called, “The Pardoner’s Prologue.”
The publishers of the OED need to do their jobs right.

THIS.

I have never thought about it in this context
that’s actually really, really creepy.

I… fuck.

Yeah, basically.

I once pointed this out to my mother and she just stared at me, in stunned silence for ages. 

There will always be a girl who is less sober, less secure, with less friends walking in a darker part of town. I want her safe just as much as I want me safe.

Here’s a weird story. That site Who Dated Who lists Nathan Lane as a rumored ex-boyfriend of Ricky Martin. Naturally I decided to investigate. Turn out t was a fake rumor from Perez Hilton, go figure. Somehow though I decided i wanted to read Lane’s coming out interview. I Googled and found old back issues of The Advocate archived in Google Books. 
So I read the interview, and then skim through the rest of the issue. It’s interesting to see where the gay press was in 1999. Apparently Keith Richards is a giant homophobe and Jon Stewart has always been pretty cool. Go figure. 
The advertisements are still the kind you’ll see in gay mags today: booze, cigarettes, HIV meds. But then half way though I start seeing a lot of ads for vague financial services, and I don’t really pay attention to them. That is until I see this one. I assumed it was some horrible, horrible joke about negative to positive cash flow, but then I see the word “Viatical settlement.” Then I realize that term is in all of these ads. I have no idea what is, so of course I got to Wikipedia. 
Turns out Viatical settlements were a once little used arrangement where you could sell your life insurance policy for cash up front, and then the buyer would get the full payout when you died. 
They’re legal, but weren’t very prominent until the ’80s when AIDS took off. Since you know gay marriage wasn’t a thing, gay men often didn’t have anyone to have on their life insurance except their parents, people they may have been estranged from or who might not have needed the money. 
So this entire industry pops up around Viatical settlements. Gay men got some of their life insurance money when they were still alive, kicked the bucket from AIDS a little while later, then the buyer cashed in. 
“From the perspective of the investor, purchasing a vatical is similar to buying a zero coupon bond with an uncertain maturity date [however an annual maintenance fee is payable i.e. the policy premium],” says. Wiki. “The return depends on the seller’s life expectancy and when he or she dies.”
Gay mens deaths: just like buying a zero coupon bond!
And, ok, on one level, great, it provided a much needed way to get money for gay men dying of a disease. On the other this was sadly the easiest way for them to get money. An entire financial services industry arose around the deaths of hundreds of thousands of gay men. 
People found a way to profit off of the AIDS crisis. Like holy shit. There’s people still to this day who probably have vacation homes they bought because gay men died. 
America right there. 
Keep in mind this issues is dated 1999. This was just 15 years ago.

Nah, they just got older and got jobs as your local law enforcement and government officials.

They raised children and grandchildren who think exactly like them. And the children and grandchildren of these terrorists are continuing their work, giving us hell on our jobs and in college courses, even to our babies on the playground.

OK but seriously think about this for a second:
The KKK
Has shaped
The 1st Amendment Case Law
Of Our Country
Because
Burning Crosses
Has been ruled to be
"Symbolic Speech"

    wow

    soooooo is no one going to say ANYTHING about how this woman is full of shit?

    like oh, you needed a fat suit to learn that fat people aren’t treated well? OR HOW ABOUT YOU JUST LISTEN TO THE ENDLESS STORIES FROM ACTUAL FAT WOMEN WHO COULD HAVE TOLD YOU THIS IN TWO SECONDS

    you needed a fat suit to show that people don’t like when people use “fake” images …. I GET IT THAT IT’S SUPPOSEDLY STILL THE SAME PERSON but i mean, this is why i keep my pics up to date, because i don’t want to put myself through this

    I’d be just as displeased if some guy showed up looking 40 when he said he was 25 (has happened), so I mean, what is this experiment proving other than “people on dating sites expect you to look like your photo, regardless of what you look like/weigh”

    and you couldn’t find an actually fat woman for this entirely POINTLESS “experiment”

    my body is not your fucking costume

    the struggles and hardships i face from a fatphobic society don’t come off at the end of the day. I can’t unzip my oppression and slide it off

    l FUCKING HATE PEOPLE WHO PUT ON FAT SUITS BECAUSE THE EXPERIMENTS THEY DO ARE ALL FALSE RESULTS

    Like oh, you felt bad because some guys left you while in a fat suit? But you KNOW you get to take it off later. You KNOW this isn’t something you’ve dealt with for 20+ years, and likely won’t have to ever experience once the suit is gone. 

    Wear that suit, EVERY DAY, even in the shower, for 20+ years, FROM CHILDHOOD, THEN fucking tell me what you’ve learned. Until then, get the fuck out of my face with this social experiment bullshit

    I want to add so much more but for now I’ll just say that as an actual fat person who frequently goes on dates with men I’ve met online, I am terrified that my photos are perceived as “eh, I guess she isn’t too fat” because getting a good photo that accurately portrays my fattness in a picture appropriate for okcupid is tough. I am terrified that they will show up thinking I’m chubby and then see me, a 250+ person, and think I’m disgusting or WORSE try to fuck me anyways even though they aren’t attracted to me because “eh, I already came all this way” (which I’m pretty sure has happened on multiple occasions). Those are just two of my anxieties surrounding me online dating as a fat person and I’m of a relatively small fat. I couldn’t even begin to imagine what it’s like for women of a larger fat and of a fat that is less socially acceptable. 

    Briefly, another reason why this is fucked up is these dudes are probably going to have even more fucked up opinions on fat girls now. Not only are fat women unattractive and insecure but they are liars. Thanks super awesome social experiment!
