What Really Happened in the Congo: Belgium’s ‘Heart of Darkness’

Leopold famously said when he was forced to hand over the Congo Free State to the Belgian nation: “I will give them my Congo but they have no right to know what I have done there,” and proceeded to burn archives.

Top 25 Sterek Fancition 

 A Californian Werewolf in New York by dancinbutterfly, knight_tracer - Oneshot | NC-17 | 16,314

When Derek finally realizes that there’s nothing left for him in Beacon Hills, he goes back to New York, gets a life, falls in love and finds his home.

“Yeah, I just- I don’t know. I wanted to tell you.” Stiles sounds confused by this. “I haven’t even told Scott yet. Isn’t that the weirdest fucking thing you ever heard? Like on a scale of one to were-lizard, this is like a unicorn.”

“You’ve stopped making sense again.”

“I know,” Stiles sighs. “I do that. What happened tonight, it wasn’t real, is all, before I told you. Now it is. Jesus. I had sex. Why the hell am I telling you this? I should be telling Scott.”

“So call him.”

“I don’t want to. I want to talk to you. This big life thing happened and as soon as it was over, all I could think about was telling you.”

“Devon Carrow’s life-threatening allergies don’t allow him to go to school. But the 4-foot-tall robot with a wireless video hookup gives him the school experience remotely, allowing him to participate in class, stroll through the hallways, hang out at recess and even take to the auditorium stage when there’s a show.”

rayrayslife:

I tried to not reblog this but I keep reading the first post and I just want to fucking cry. Because there are people out there who think like that. That fat people aren’t worth the life they’re living. That we should all just die.
Thin people say they get hated as much as fat people. But thin people just get told to eat more.
We get told to kill ourselves.

littlefoots:

Fat hate, brought to you by “lulz-time.”
Lulz indeed. What a disgusting human being.

alexandraerin:

I am so ticked that I am learning about this awesome use of assistive technology on a post where somebody misappropriated it to make a spiteful bit of fat hate.

bilt2tumble:


Brilliant. Personally I hold idiots who like to splash their fat hate all over anything that might remotely involve fat people (Which this, patently, DOES NOT), down there with geniuses who had no idea that the Titanic sinking actually happened. Or those shining examples who are completely unaware that North Korea had nothing to do with the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Now, I could be wrong. Maybe the Kid with AN AUTOIMMUNE CONDITION is fat. But, being human, I’m not likely to think less of the child if he or she is. Mainly because I’m aware that this child? IS ALSO A HUMAN BEING. The asshat spouting fat hate at a child who’s likely trying to engage the world in the best way he or she can? Clearly, that asshat’s humanity remains a question.

sourcedumal:

The fact that this fucking news link says “Obese 2nd grader” rather than the TRUE FUCKIN REASON FOR HIS NOT BEING ABLE TO GO TO SCHOOL shows fat hatred. 
This kid could die if exposed because of his fuckin allergies, and all they care about is HIS WEIGHT.
But weight loss cures everything, apparently, including fucking AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES.


Oh hey ableism and fat phobia. Fucking asshats.

People being angry about ~dem gays~ on Target’s Facebook.

I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story.

A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right?

It is a big deal because i’m a transman

It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview.

Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews.

At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple.

At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person.

TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life.

Well, this clinches it:

I’m going to keep shopping at Target.

this is such a pleasant surprise

Oh dear. Poor, poor heteronormists. One opportunity for representation in advertising lost to them forever. They will never occupy this particular ad again. That must hurt.

Also, given I still have to explain even to liberal-minded being-gay-is-fine college students about trans people, and the difference between sexuality and gender (yes, sexuality, not biological sex)… wow. Go Target! :)

“Cakes have gotten a bad rap. People equate virtue with turning down dessert. There is always one person at the table who holds up her hand when I serve the cake. No, really, I couldn’t she says, and then gives her flat stomach a conspiratorial little pat. Everyone who is pressing a fork into that first tender layer looks at the person who declined the plate, and they all think, That person is better than I am. That person has discipline. But that isn’t a person with discipline; that is a person who has completely lost touch with joy. A slice of cake never made anybody fat. You don’t eat the whole cake. You don’t eat a cake every day of your life. You take the cake when it is offered because the cake is delicious. You have a slice of cake and what it reminds you of is someplace that’s safe, uncomplicated, without stress. A cake is a party, a birthday, a wedding. A cake is what’s served on the happiest days of your life. This is a story of how my life was saved by cake, so, of course, if sides are to be taken, I will always take the side of cake.”

Jeanne Ray (via fyoured)

This is perfect and lovely.

Eat the damn cake.

(via luciwithani)

Please!!! Eat it, pretend it doesn’t exist, whatever. Just make sure to SHUT, THE FUK, UP about it, whatever you decide to do. Nobodies got time to hear about your mess.
