Betsy: aka Betty. This bitch is diabetic. That’s really all you need to know. But since I’m in a giving mood, I will tell you a little bit more. She is a rice pilaf aficionado. She is obsessed with her college, at which she has joined crew and a sorority. She is a fierce bitch.
Mary Kate: aka Bunz. This bitch is classy as fuck. She is also a porn star. She has been compared to Kate Middleton (I am the Pippa to her Kate, and the Producer to her Porn Star). She is the star of the Phat Bunz adult film franchise, including: Bad to the Bunz, and Feel of Dreams (if you blow them, they will cum). Even though this career may not seem like the classiest of jobs, she pulls it off with grace and dignity. She is truly an artist.
Jess: aka Jdelly. This bitch is the Queen Bee of the bros. She is our leader. We follow whatever she says, blindly and without question. She runs her Club Penguin account like it’s a Saw movie. She is one of my fellow SuperPowers. Her house is called the Delahouse and it is my home away from home. One time, I picked her dog up, out of her yard without her knowledge or permission, put it in my car, and drove away. One time, she egged my car. It was awesome.
Deirdre: aka Babz. This bitch is a bitch in the best sense of the term. She tells it like it is. There is no bullshit with Babz. But once you learn to accept that, you will realize that she’s actually wicked nice and caring. Babz is friends with everyone she meets, because that’s just how she rolls. One time we made up a rumor that she was pregnant and got tons of people to believe it, including my English teacher and one of the nuns at my Catholic high school. Yeah.
Emma: aka Bo. This bitch is a music genius and a wit master. When she’s not beasting on piano, she is probably writing music so that she will be able to play it later and beast on the piano, playing her uke, or driving her Prius. Her Prius is actually a hugely defining portion of her life. I have spent many an afternoon in that car, and I consider it to be her noble steed. Also, we get burritos regularly and write blog entries about said burritos semi-regularly.
Kristyn: aka Krispy. This bitch is the nicest person I know. She is sweet, and when she’s not being nice she can be sarcastic and somewhat mean- but don’t worry, because she’s ‘just kidding, guys’. Krispy is loyal and unwavering. Oh, and while I am providing a link to her blog, she never goes on it. So… yeah.
Susie: aka Swal. This bitch is a British fangirl. She is a BBC junkie and proud. She loves her cats to the point of beastiality, but it’s okay and we love her anyway. She and I have a complex relationship, but absence has made the heart grow fonder and we don’t fight regularly anymore. She also discovered my secret life as a Time Lord because she found my high school yearbook picture circa 1984. Awkward.
THERE. I hope you feel informed. All of these bitches are hysterical and wonderful, so if I have provided a link, follow them.
And if you’re wasting your time searching for a film called ‘Bad to the Bunz’ or wondering how I can be friends with someone who practices beastiality, you are an idiot. Feel free to leave.
LOL I’m friends with all these people right hurrrrrr. Lauren, your posts make my life sometimes. Like this one. So ima reblog it and try to make it tumblr famous. F yeah random tags.
Not only do I love your blog ( heh found it ) but I also am secretly infatuated with you. K. here we go I got this idea from a spam msg I received on Facebook lol.. I know you like me but were always way too shy to say so :3 go hit up crushmasher(dót)com (uhh it wont let me do a regular link) then make an acct there. Search for the profile 'justmeandu33' ( obv me ) I posted body pix.. if u can figure out who I am msg me and we'll kick it. CC required for age but it is free. (annoying i know)
Whooo! I’ve got spam! Aw yeah.
Not gtfo. There will be no kicking it with you, spambot thing. Yeah.
And this is awesome! The only downside is it doesn’t not protect them in places like bathrooms. Meaning, they can still totally get kicked out for using the bathroom of their choice. I’m not sure if it applies to all public places, like restaurants, but it applies to bathrooms, I know that much. So that’s not a wonderful part of this bill, that they took it out to pass it. Alas, it’s something. And one step is better than no steps, right?
The story about the Occupy Seattle protester who had a miscarriage due to police brutality is real.
Just a friendly note.
Please stop reblogging the story claiming the 8-month pregnancy was lost. It is not real and it is sensationalizing a very personal and tragic loss people actually go through just to get thousands of notes.
I love when people state these slanted statistics.
You know, the funniest part about this, is you really have to view it as a graph of “diversity of the government”.
For the first century or two of our government, women and anyone that didn’t look white/european was not able to hold any position of power or participate in education. Think about that for a moment. It wasn’t until the 60’s that we desegregated communities. Can you believe that? Only 50 years ago did we actually say “these people are just like us”.
But wait, Cliff, if we were truly not as racist and white-supporting as these charts and percentages say, then why isn’t there more representation in the government and positions of power?!
Well let’s think about that. For starters, there are rules about joining the government. And we all know that unless you’re in the corporation’s pockets, you’re probably only going to reach a local government status (and even then, you could be, so who knows!). You can say that Bachmann, Cain, Obama, and Clinton weren’t true representatives of your groups, but think about what you’re arguing against for one moment. Before Obama, there were 0% minority presidents. If Clinton had won, she would have been the first female president. Why is that? Because it’s only been within the last century that progressive movements have truly impacted our way of life. I don’t care what you have to say about whether they represent women or not, they are women and minorities filling positions of power and are (or were) potential candidates.
If you marched right into a middle eastern country, demanding that women be treated equally, you’d be laughed right off the fucking map. Why? Because they have a deep rooted male-oriented structure that’s been around for thousands of years. Imagine destroying THAT. Yeah, hard work, isn’t it?
You see an increasingly progressive amount of representation of the minorities (or in the case of women, the other half) in our country, and you say “hey, we’re being oppressed over here, look at these statistics that show the transition of power isn’t fast enough!”
You know what, if you’re that dead-set on wanting positions of power, then elect Michelle Bachmann or Herman Cain. That’s your only hope of getting African-American president #2 or female president #1. Oh wait, they don’t represent you, do they?
Back in the Ronald Reagan presidency, the Department of Agriculture classified ketchup and pickle relish as vegetables. For the exact same reason they’re doing what they’re doing now: to stop from adding a serving of cooked/fresh vegetables while cutting out other foods from the lunch program requirements.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Occupy Memphis member Mallory Pope had just finished telling a group of about 75 tea party followers Thursday night that politicians should not allow themselves to be influenced by lobbyists and unions when she received an unexpected invitation.
“It sounds to me that y’all ought to be joining us,” said Jerry Rains, a 64-year-old computer programmer and tea party member. “You have a lot of the same goals we have, which is to take our country back.”
Pope and fellow Occupy Memphis protester Tristan Tran had a lively, sometimes strained and confrontational, but mostly civil discussion with members of the Mid-South Tea Party at a municipal meeting hall outside Memphis.
The factions saw eye-to-eye on some issues and clashed on others. And, while the young speakers didn’t change many minds, they did earn praise from the tea party members for their passion, honesty and courage.
The Richmond Tea Party was filing a suit against the government for making them pay while the Occupy was free. I whole heartedly agreed that the money the Tea Party paid for their rallies should be given back because that’s not fair.
When I addressed the Tea Party in their little messaging system, the Richmond Tea Party spokesperson told me that she supported the idea of a freedom to assembly, and that regardless of political views, everyone should have the right to gather. There are actually a large number of Tea Party members who support the Occupy as a “take the country back” movement. And this is just another example.
sorry but I need to release the fury with all caps THIS FUCKING SHIT PISSES ME OFF SO UNBELIEVILY FUCKING MUCH. RAPE DOES NOT HAPPEN BECAUSE YOU ARE PRETTY, RAPE DOES NOT HAPPEN BECAUSE YOU’RE GOOD TO LOOK AT. BEING UGLY DOESN’T MAKE YOU RAPE-PROOF. BEING UGLY WILL NOT MAKE PEOPLE AUTOMATICALLY NOT WANT TO RAPE YOU. “UGLY PEOPLE GET RAPED ALL THE GOD DAMN TIME. PEOPLE RAPE FOR POWER, THEY DONT GIVE A SHIT WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE. FUCK THIS POST AND ANYONE WHO FINDS IT FUNNY. THIS SHIT IS NOT A JOKE. RAPE IS NOT A FUCKING JOKE. If you think this shit is cool, hip, or funny; kindly unfollow.
Not to mention the fact that rapists go after more what is the most vulernable than anything else. Your looks do not make a difference to a rapist. It is simply what is easiest to them. And for the most part, that’s people they know. So don’t sit there and think you won’t get raped for being ugly. That’s stupid and shows your lack for common sense. Or lack for knowledge about rape. It’s also like saying that people who are unattractive and claiming rape are just making false allegations. Whoever the OP of this is really needs to stop degrading rape victims and making the idea of it seem silly. It’s unfair, ignorant, and makes you look like douchebag of the year. Get a brain and then maybe you can see everything you’re doing wrong, yeah?
“But when a saga popular with pre-adolescent girls peaks romantically on a night that leaves the heroine to wake up covered with bruises in the shape of her husband’s hands — and when that heroine then spends the morning explaining to her husband that she’s incredibly happy even though he injured her, and that it’s not his fault because she understands he couldn’t help it in light of the depth of his passion — that’s profoundly irresponsible.”—
I put this quote up on my Facebook while a bit ago, and it’s actually generated quite the debate among folks there.
Here’s my take (if you don’t feel like hearing my ramblings, feel free to move along to the animated gif above this post or the latest pro/con OWS post below on your dash. I don’t mind):
It concerns me greatly that moms all over the world will be taking their pre-tween, tween, and teen daughters to the cinema to see this film. We live in a culture where one in four women have been the victim of some form of domestic abuse, whether it be from a spouse, boyfriend, or other family member. And those are the ones that we actually know about, where they’ve actually either been reported to authorities or provided by womens’ shelters that protect victims and their families.
A very common message these women hear from their abuser is the line: “I’m so sorry. I really didn’t mean it. It won’t happen again, I promise.” And they hear this over and over and over and over again.
Ok, admittedly, I am hyper-sensitive to this issue because I’m the father of two beautiful young girls. I know as they get older that they are going to be bombarded with messages like:
You’re too fat.
Wear these clothes, buy this jewelry, use this makeup, or you will not find a man.
You can only find your worth when you’re in a relationship.
If a man rapes or sexually assaults you, it was your fault because you were wearing the things we told you to wear in the first place.
If a man hits you, he didn’t really mean to and promises he’ll never do it again. Just give him another chance. He can change. Promise. You can change him.
Twilight has been specifically targeted, marketed, and packaged in a pretty little blood-stained bow towards young women. Sadly, it’s also been heavily embraced by many of these young women’s mothers as well, who read these books and see these movies right alongside their girls, seemingly placing their stamp of approval on the content within. It’s heartbreaking.
This post isn’t to try and convince people how to parent. Hell, I’m still learning, and most days feel like I have no idea what I am doing. Consider this more of a plea. An appeal, rather. I look at my role as Arwen and Greer’s father as the single most important thing I will do in this life. How I treat them, what I say, and how I treat my wife, their mother, not only in front of them, but behind closed doors, will be the things that will stick with them throughout their entire life. I need to be a model of what love and respect really looks, sounds and feels like. Stacie and I have a huge responsibility to them to model what that looks like, and teach them that their worth doesn’t come from clothes, money, looks, a romantic relationship or lack thereof. And we need to be making sure that when they are exposed to messages, images, whatever, that is contrary to those things, that we remind them of how beautiful, precious, special, and amazing they are.
I could go on and on. But I’ll end here. Twilight sucks. Only take your kids if you want to show them what NOT to do.
Reporting from Helm’s Deep with Hugs and Unicorns,
I agree. The Twilight Saga does not offer positive themes; in fact, it offers detrimental themes. It teaches girls to be weak and dependent instead of strong and independent. It’s depressing how many girls really revel in the horrible story-line of an abusive relationship. Please think about Twilight and you’ll realize how fucked up it is. Whether or not you find it entertaining, I ask you to evaluate its worth. Evaluate what it teaches the youth. It’s not a positive influence. Boycott Twilight.
There was also the fact that Breaking Dawn shoved a pro-life message into the mix. The fetus was killing Bella, but she refused to have an abortion (her choice, but seriously, the message is there for impressionable girls, the life of a fetus is worth more than the mother’s). Anytime the fetus was called anything but a baby, the speaker was usually corrected immediately.
Breaking Dawn, and the Twilight series in total, is a lesson in how to subjugate women and keep them as nothing more than pretty princesses that need men to help them.
All of this commentary. The entire Twilight saga practically promotes absuive relationships. A lot of girls find Edward’s type attractive -you know, the controlling absuive boyfriend with anger issues. But they just see some charming man who just loves Bella too much to hurt her, regardless of the fact that he always hurts her in every single book (and movie). I don’t understand why it’s found to be appealing and I certainly don’t understand how people can think it’s ok to promote this kind of acceptance of absuive relationships. It irks me beyond belief and I wish more people could actually realize the things that are actually happening in Twlight and how they look in the REAL WORLD and not just some fantasy world with some loving accepting girlfriend.
So yeah. What they all said up there. They worded it 1000x better than I ever good.
I urge you to read this interview, if you have not already. Brazil is officially the world’s fifth largest economy and a large portion of the credit is due to their President who has only an eighth grade education.
it’s artificial which is why I don’t like mood pills
Actually, what you’re feeling IS what you’re actually feeling. Anti-depressants don’t work like they just make you happy. Rather, they open your mind more to positive thoughts, but you take it from there with your own feelings. It also helps with any chemical imbalances that one may have so that you can feel happy when you’re supposed to rather than just feeling sad or angry all the time or what have you. The medications are helpful, but you’re still the one who is having all the feelings. They are real and not artificial at all. You guys should really look more into it if you’re that worried or before you say things that aren’t true. It’s likely to discourage people from getting the help they need because taking anti-depressants CAN be helpful to a lot of people.
you’re a stupid ass dumb bitch if you love and idolize serial killers wtf is wrong with you……
Then when they’re like, “Oh, but they were so intelligent!” No. Shut up.
I don’t idolize them nor do I actually love them. But I do find them quite fascinating and love learning about them. (I mostly love learning the reasoning behind what made them decide to pick the people they killed in the first place.) I certainly don’t think they’re intelligent, just crazy. Does that still count? Dx
Am I the only one who read the book….? Or the real stories behind most of the Disney movies? Most of them are sad and/or grotesque. Like the Little Mermaid and Cinderella. They’re all quite enjoying if you like to read that sort of thing. Disney does give them nice happy endings though and it suits the movies well. :)
