Epic Satanist trolls worthy of admiration.

The Satanic Temple demands religious exemption from abortion restrictions, citing Hobby Lobby ruling. Heh. Click here to see their official campaign page.

This from the same people who brought you this piece of public sculpture:

After a statue of the Ten Commandments was donated to Oklahoma City by State Representative Mike Ritze and placed outside the Oklahoma State Capitol, the ACLU sued for its removal. While the case is currently in court, The Satanic Temple proposed a solution where the City could keep its statue and the ACLU would drop its lawsuit. All that would be required would be for Oklahoma City to accept The Satanic Temple’s donation of a statue of Baphomet (as well as any other similar donation from other religious or atheist organizations). The statue is currently under construction.

A wild cat and a fox isn’t the usual pair of best friends but this duo was discovered by fishermen on the shores of Lake Van in Turkey and have been together for over a year. Locals say they’re inseparable. Article.

The Galactic Adventures of Jack & Stella

Geez, I haven’t posted a progress update on my novel-in-progress for a while! Wordcount has nearly reached 98,000 (I’d been aiming for 70k when I started, and it’s looking like it’ll be more like 105k when I’m done), and the whole thing has seen a number of revisions. Progress! REALLY hoping to be done with the draft by the start of Fall semester (less than a month now). Eek!

Know the fucking difference.

Feminism is a good thing. Some people (a loud minority of people really) who think they’re feminists are bordering on misandrists - that’s what gives feminism a bad name. They’re not feminists if they put down men while bringing up women. People who hate the feminist movement because it puts down men don’t hate feminism - they hate misandry. 

This is actually great to know. I had such a negative look on feminists (even as a woman) and it was because of the misandrists. Not the feminists.
So thank you for sharing.


Men can and should be feminists. Sexism hurts everybody.

I WISH they were fleeing for economic reasons.

Economic issues can be resolved easily.  Gang violence is awful, and the idea that these kids have to run from danger horrifies me.  I want to believe that innocence can still have a measure of protection.  Small people need to be protected at all costs.

If you dig deep enough, gang violence is also an economic issue - but instead of Coke and Pepsi using ads and free samples given away by their street teams to capture market share, gangs use violence (or the threat of violence) to strengthen or take hold of a neighborhood. There are a lot of factors in play, to be certain, but attenuating the crushing poverty under which too many people are forced to live would reduce the influence of the gangs because their underlying support structure of necessary human predation would be weakened.

But American politicians (especially those with an -R after their names on television) would rather round up and/or shoot brown people (or let them shoot each other) than help them… whether they’re in Central America, the Middle East, or in the US itself.

Sunday shows covered climate change as much in the first half of 2014 as in the last four years combined.

This is a huge jump in reporting on the issue, but how much of it relied on false balance instead of accuracy?

One of the best examples of artistic integrity on a corporate scale.

wow. 

No matter how many times I see this, I never fail to be impressed by that last sentence.

Ahh, it’s back

i have disproportionately strong feelings about this.

every time i say “nah i’m not gonna watch it again.” BUT I STILL DO EVERY TIME.

YEAUGH

the comments are painfully accurate. 

the freeze-frame makes it even more incredible

The simplest things are the most hilarious.
