TUMBLR I LOVE YOU
And I need your support and hugs :( This is what I am currently debating about on the facebooks: “‘Rape’, as I’ve heard it defined, is ‘unwanted/unwelcome sexual intercourse’. If you’re having sex with your boyfriend/husband/whatever, then presumably you wanted to do it. Thus, not rape, otherwise why are they your husband/boyfriend/whatever? ...

sentientcitizen: Okey-dokey, so. Although my queue might keep posting stuff for a while, I’m now officially offline until next Tuesday or Wednesday. I mention this mostly because I’m subscribed to TOO MANY PEOPLE, which means that every time I think of reading through that much tumblr backlog my brain replies with… FINE THEN. YOU ARE AN ABONDONING ROOMMATE WHO IS CLEARLY TRYING TO KILL...

(via one-bite-at-a-time) I will reblog this every time it crosses my dash. I’m always facing unbelievable amounts of nastiness from guys when I don’t flirt back, and sometimes it’s just like, fine, I don’t have...

adventuresofcomicbookgirl: Looks like this essay was needed, so I went ahead and did it. Not sure I said everything I wanted to say, but I tried. So, there’s this girl. She’s tragically orphaned and richer than anyone on the planet. Every guy she meets falls in love with her, but in between torrid romances she rejects… Essie. Essie. Essie. You should read this. And then we should talk...
I give you the 2012 Republican Presidential...
Michele Bachmann: "Don’t misunderstand. I am not here bashing people who are homosexuals, who are lesbians, who are bisexual, who are transgender. We need to have profound compassion for people who are dealing with the very real issue of sexual dysfunction in their life and sexual identity disorders.” (2004)
Ron Paul: "The rate of AIDS infection is on the increase again. From the gay point of view, the reasons seem quite sensible. First, these men don't really see a reason to live past their fifties. They are not married, they have no children, and their lives are centered on new sexual partners... because sex is the center of their lives, they want it to be as pleasurable as possible, which means unprotected sex. Third, they enjoy the attention & pity that comes with being sick." (1995 in a newsletter)
Rick Perry: "I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm a Christian, but you don't need to be in the pew every Sunday to know there's something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military but our kids can't openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school. " (2011 in a campaign ad)
Mitt Romney: "I should tell my story. I'm also unemployed." (2011 while speaking to unemployed people in Florida. Romney's net worth is over $200 million.)
Newt Gingrich: "She's not young enough or pretty enough to be the wife of the President. And besides, she has cancer." (1994, about his first wife)
Rick Santorum: "Is anyone saying same-sex couples can’t love each other? I love my children. I love my friends, my brother. Heck, I even love my mother-in-law. Should we call these relationships marriage, too?" (2008)
Michele Bachmann: "Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn't even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas." (2009 during a debate)
Mitt Romney: "PETA is not happy that my dog likes fresh air." (2006, when questioned about driving 12 hours with his dog in a cage strapped to the top of his car)
