Honestly can’t wait for the 50 shades movie to normalize the manipulation of lower-level female employees. Can’t wait for the new wave of “consent is sexy” banners on the cover of cosmo. Can’t wait for teen girls to think that a controlling relationship is romantic. Can’t wait for sexualized violence to become increasingly mainstream. And most of all, I can’t wait for BDSM to be labeled a feminist revolution.


thirteenths:

a sleeping beauty au where ino is the princess and she pricks her finger on her sixteenth birthday as is expected from the curse. what the fairies don’t know is that she has a little bit of magic herself. when she falls into the enchanted sleep, her soul somehow escapes and becomes some sort of a projection. an out of body thing. she can’t go far so she ends up as a grumpy companion to her physical body.

which is a terrible thing because she keeps criticising every single prince (and princess) who has come from far and wide to kiss her out of the curse.

"his teeth is not straight and he’s smelly, don’t you have a nose”

"you’re kidding, right? if she puts those lips on me, I SWEAR I WILL SCREAM"

"HE’S AT LEAST THIRTY YEARS OLD"

so on and so forth.

do you ever read a fic that is so much better than the actual canon that you get angry


Lord knows the Democratic Party is far from perfect. But House Democrats, when they were in the majority, at least understood that the government had to function, even if its policies were not those they preferred. When Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was speaker, for example, she made certain that bills funding the occupation of Iraq made it through the House, even though a majority of Democrats bitterly opposed the war.

Today’s Republican Party opposes the Affordable Care Act, so it refuses to work with the Obama administration in legislating technical fixes that would make the law work more smoothly. Is this in any sense patriotic? Having lost battles over the law in Congress and the Supreme Court, don’t Republicans have an obligation to make it serve their constituents as well as possible?

Both parties used to understand the need to invest in infrastructure for reasons of competitiveness and safety. Both parties used to understand that there could be no serious threat to send the Treasury into default. Both parties used to cheer the kind of good economic news we heard Thursday — 288,000 new jobs in June, unemployment down to 6.1 percent.

But now, one party — the GOP — cares more about ideology, reelection and opposing Obama’s every initiative than about the well-being of the nation. It is scant comfort, on Independence Day, to remember that the republic has survived worse.

You know, it just occurred to me, back when I did office work, if I’d refused to do my job for so much as a day, I’d have been fired.

You?

A phantom limb is the sensation that an amputated or missing limb is still attached to thebody and is moving appropriately with other body parts. Approximately 60 to 80% of individuals with an amputation experience phantom sensations in their amputated limb, and the majority of the sensations are painful.

But what Lucy did not expect, was to feel someone touching her missing hand…
