Whenever someone refers to the gay community as “queer folk” I imagine us all like woodland sprites, we are the queer folk community, we are born of flowers and fairy dust, we are destroying the sanctity of marriages and corrupting children
“Anaconda” turns Nicki’s butt into a literal force of nature, causing earthquakes in a jungle setting. After parodying the idea of exoticism by opening on a jungle scene, she shifts into a workout setup with comically small weights. All of these setups make the same point: Nicki’s body is the modern ideal. And because Nicki is spitting rapid-fire jokes the whole time she is onscreen, it’s impossible to feel like she’s been reduced to a mere body.
This is confirmed by what comes next: Nicki squirting whipped cream on her tits, fondling a banana, and then slicing the banana with a maniacal laugh. Cutting up a metaphorical dick onscreen makes it even more clear that the “Anaconda” video is about Nicki asserting her power, not as a sexual object but a sexual subject. Both the suggestive choreography and the song’s lyrics, which recount a series of sexual encounters, double down on the fact that Nicki has all the power here, and that she can show as much of her body as she likes and retain all that power.
Tumblr, can you please spread awareness of the riots currently breaking out in Glasgow city centre in George Square -
Union supporters have begun rioting in the city waving Union Jacks, saluting Nazis and attacking nationalists.
Absolutely nothing is being reported on BBC News, Sky News or ITV news! Spread the word!
These KIDS ( as you can clearly see them smiling) are loyalists, probably Rangers supporters, numpties, neds, bawheeds, it’s not a riot, more like an old firm game from the 80’s……….we don’t have riots in Scotland, more like a ‘bit of noise’ people are there to cause a nuisance because they don’t have lives.
Scotland has been building up to voting on whether they should become Independent from the United Kingdom since 2012, the Idea’s been in the works since the ’50s. Yes voters want to be independent, No voters want to stay in the UK.
The parties backing Yes are the snp, the…
The program, which was backed by Vice President Joe Biden and Attorney General Eric Holder, provides federal grants to state and local law enforcement agencies so they can speed their analyses of untested evidence kits. Experts say many thousands of such kits are languishing in communities across the country, including some that are many years old.
The Debbie Smith Act is named after a woman who was taken from her home in Williamsburg, Virginia, in 1989 and raped. It took years for the evidence in her case to be examined and her attacker caught. She and other supporters of the program have argued that such delays add further layers of fear and torment to their experiences.
apparently big bird isnt a real bird and has been a person in a costume this whole time. this brings into the question the authenticity of all other birds. are some of them also filled with tiny humans. do any birds actually exist
The damage is already done though…
This needs to be brought to attention IMMEDIATELY!!!!!
I don’t even understand what they’re expecting anymore. if they can lie to us to our face and us KNOW the truth, what power do we have , then?

Imagine how different your life would be if you were expected to live in fear of sexual violence all the time. If you were expected to wear certain “safe” clothes, to never walk alone at night in public – to run with your keys in your hand. Imagine if you couldn’t have a cocktail at the bar because if you did – and then you neglected to take one of these measures and happened to be attacked – you would get blamed for getting raped for having a cocktail.
I hear from you on campus and even online, that conversations about rape culture and the prevalence of sexual assault on campus sometimes makes you feel as if it’s you men who are the problem.
But a lot of you are already speaking up and intervening, even when it’s difficult – even when your friends roll their eyes and walk the other way. I’m sure I’m not the only woman who is grateful for that. But I ask you: can’t you do a little more? Not just because women need all the help we can get, but because, deep down, I think you want to.
