Playboy’s catcall flowchart.  

I’m reblogging Playboy. Somebody stop me. 

Even Playboy wants men to stop screaming at women on the street. When the pinnacle of female objectification is telling you you’re being a sexist pig, maybe for real you’re being a sexist pig. (I mean, women have been telling you you’re a sexist pig for catcalling for a long time, but then again, they’re *women* so their opinions don’t count. Now a magazine for men has acknowledged it so LISTEN UP.)

A son went into a rarely-used bedroom in his mother’s home and discovered thousands of wasps had made a giant nest in a bed. An estimated 5,000 wasps had created a nest by chewing through bedding, including a blanket and pillow. Pest-control expert John Birkett was called to tackle with the mound of wasps inside the mattress at the five-bedroom home in Winchester, Hampshire.

Can I have an extra large nope?

Black TV producer on way to Emmys party mistaken for bank robber, handcuffed, held for six hours
An African-American film producer in Beverly Hills for an Emmy pre-party was handcuffed and detained for around six hours on Friday night as police believed he fit the description of a suspect in a nearby bank robbery.
Charles Belk said he left a restaurant alone to refill a parking meter when he was suddenly surrounded by six police cars “handcuffed very tightly, fully searched for weapons, and placed back on the curb,”  he wrote on his Facebook page with an accompanying photo of him sitting on the curb as two police officers stand close by.

I can usually deal with grammar/spelling mistakes even though they tend to make sentences unnecessarily confusing, but I cannot stand when people say that they “balled their eyes out.”

Please, have yourself a good cry. But don’t gouge your own eyes out.

The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 (2011), Göran Hugo Olsson

You heard it right folks, the FBI considered free breakfasts for poor children to be the most dangerous internal threat to the country. Literally the kind of thing Jesus would do was the most dangerous threat to the country.

Today’s picture for invisible illness is a personal one. This is one of about 30 notes that my friend has received since using her handicapped placard. I’m going to say this to you, have you ever seen someone get out of a car parked in a handicapped space and said to yourself “they look too young or they don’t look disabled.” I’m going to go with yes you have, because we all have at one time. I can’t remember doing it, but before I understood the difficulties of invisible illness when I was younger I probably did. Let me ask you this though, when you had that thought was it because you knew with 100% certainty that they weren’t handicapped or did you assume that because of their age and/or not seeing a cane, walker or wheelchair? All I’m asking is that we stop and think when we someone need a mobility aid, park in a handicapped space or say they are disabled that we remember this “DISABILITY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AGE OR APPEARNACE.” #spoonie #invisibleillness #disability #chronicillness #rheumatoidarthritis #lupus #fibromyalgia #myofascialpainsyndrome

If nothing else, this post needs to be seen around the internet more. This harassment is not okay and no one should have to deal with it on top of having an invisible illness. This is just another form of anonymous bullying to add to the internet bullying these TROLLS are capable of.
If you are healthy, please reblog.If you are sick, please reblog.If you have a disability, please reblog.If you have an invisible illness, please reblog.If you know someone with a disability, please reblog.If you are a human being, please reblog.Let’s spread the word and help those of us that may not look like it. 
Ignorance isn’t bliss, ignorance is ignorance. 

I never thought about this wow

things like this are why I’m too scared to get my disabled parking badge

I got in an arguement with a co-worker about this. She has an elderly mother who has a handicap tag and she was complaining that you can ‘tell’ some people don’t need it. I kept firing back with no you can’t, no you can’t, but she wouldn’t let it go.

this shit pisses me off.My work can hardly accommodate all the employees for parking & most of the time I have to park at an overflow lot which is about a block or two away from the building. Normally, it takes me like 5 minutes to walk from there. But before I got sufficient treatment for my disordered uterine bleeding, the copious amount of blood I was losing every day made me very weak and I tired very easily. I would be completely exhausted and usually lightheaded by the time I got inside. I strongly considered applying for a temporary placard, but this right here is the exact reason I didn’t. I also felt like I didn’t deserve it because there are so many people who have it way harder than I did and the parking at work is atrocious enough without taking away one of the few designated spots from someone who needed it more than I did.
Also, my best friend’s aunt has a permit due to her heart issues and you would never know it by looking at her, so people who find it necessary to comment on whether or not people deserve a handicap spot need to shut the fuck up.
This shit is wrong, and the note writer should be fucking ashamed of themselves.
