Wonder Woman is there to kick ass not give you a boner

favorite response to some dude saying the Wonder Woman costume isn’t sexy enough on Facebook (via agentturner)

Nicholas Lord, a Navy sailor since 2008 currently on active duty, is under investigation after threatening to rape a young woman who is a Navy recruit.
The young woman posted a photo of herself on Facebook, captioning it to say she’s proud of how she’s working hard to get in shape for the Navy, and she’s excited to be leaving soon. The photo was shared on the page for her Delayed Entry Program for her fellow Navy recruits.
Nicholas Lord, who is not a current recruit and who has been serving in the Navy since 2008, then commented:
You’ll end up pregnant real soon you fucking wh***. If I could and I knew you, I’d hold you down and rape you.
The next day, Lord gloated about his threat on his Facebook page, updating his status to say he’d been “trolling feminist pages.” In case it needs to be said, the Facebook page for a Navy program is not a “feminist page.” It’s a Navy recruiting page. (x) (x)
I don’t know what the Navy’s punishment system is like, but I hope he gets the worst possible. I hope they investigate his past history in the military, too. If he’s bold enough to outright threaten female recruits, under his own name, on public, Navy-run social media, I seriously doubt he hasn’t harassed and threatened female sailors. He may even have raped them.
Especially given the military’s problem with letting men get away with harassment and rape, they need to severely punish him.

Send it viral, and he will see ramifications.

If you only reblog one thing today I hope it’s this.

signal boost the shit out of this. i wanna see this dickwad’s name everywhere.

I don’t understand why sex is more shocking than violence.

The World at 1000 BC

Yellow = Hunter-Gatherers


Purple = Pastoral Nomads


Green = Simple Farming Societies


Orange = Complex Farming Societies / Chiefdoms


Blue = State Societies


White = Uninhabited


Red lines = Area of iron working


Pink lines = Area of bronze working


There should be more blue in the med, and the purple ling should include parts of Ethiopia.

Today the room was spinning
or maybe I was spinning
and all I could think of was how
lovely it is to be alive;
how little the stretch marks
on my thighs mattered when
the sun rises and sets daily
and there are people that
love me.
I wish I could feel this way
every day.

Gaza death toll rises over 1,000 as bodies are recovered

ubuntuliberation:

The toll in Gaza rose above 1,000 dead on Saturday as more than 1,000 bodies were pulled from the rubble of homes throughout the coastal enclave during a truce, medics said.

The grim milestone came on the 19th day of a conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Hamas movement, during a 12-hour truce that allowed Gaza residents to pick through the ruins of their homes.

The reason women are turning you down for casual sex seems to be that, for one thing, a lot of you are calling them sluts afterward. Also, a lot of you aren’t bothering to try to be good in bed.

okay seriously if you’re in a relationship or even a friendship and you find yourself spending more time crying out of sadness or arguing with them, leave them. i don’t care if they’re a modern day aphrodite/adonis or a gift bestowed upon you by the gods. toxic people are dangerous and i highly advise cutting them out of your life and finding someone who makes you laugh until you snort your drink out your nose instead.

Brazilian Woman Laced Vagina with Poison to Kill Husband

approachingsignificance:

The intended victim, a 43-year-old man who has not been named, says his wife tried to lure him into bed and encouraged him to perform oral sex on her. His suspicions were aroused when he noticed an unusual odour emanating from her private parts and, fearing she was unwell, took her to hospital, Brazil’s Tvi24 reports. Medical tests revealed she had doused her vagina with enough of the unspecified toxin to kill both her husband and herself.

Confronted with the test results the woman reportedly confessed to her crime. It is believed she hatched the bizarre plot after asking her husband for a divorce, a request he now seems rather more likely to acquiesce to. Tvi24 says the woman has received medical treatment and sources claim her husband plans to sue her for attempted murder.

I can’t. 

Why was she not charged with attempted murder?

This is neat in a weird way.
