i cant believe a large group of adult men rigged a survey to vote for the best animated kids show of 2013 by creating scripts that automatically vote for my little pony a million times i feel like were living in a bizarro alternate universe of the real true timeline where bronies are fairytale creatures that only exist in legends

and you know, celebrating the diversity we have and asking for more of it are not diametrically opposed
movie about sisters? fuck yeah!
but they didn’t have to be white sisters
or straight or cis
"this is great, now do better" is not being dismissive or ungrateful
and, frankly, neither is “fuck this, this isn’t good enough any more”
today’s date is 11/12/13 and that is very satisfying to me
Wow I’m American and I just realized how ridiculous and flip flopped the system is because of the size of unit of measurement wtf
It should be day month year because month day year makes no sense I’m moving to another country
Why do we Americans even use the system we do?
Because it’s easier to sort columns or blocks of information visually at a glance.If 12/15/2013 and 11/16/2013 occur in the same list, you can more quickly parse which one happened before the other, and if you only care about November you can find those dates quickly.
How often do you need to organize a block of dates by which one happened on the 17th day of a month versus which ones happened in November? Honestly, we could say it’s ridiculous and flip-flopped to not have them in order of the lowest range to greatest range (1 to 12, 1 to 31, 1 to 2013 and counting).
Even when records are already organized in order by dates, it’s easier to read and cleaner-looking if the first part of the date isn’t the one that changes every single day.
Also, think about how you look up dates in a paper calendar. Today’s the 15th. Do you flip through a 31 page book until you get to page 15, then find November?
No. You start at November then go to the 15th. You might be saying “But you don’t then go to 2013, so this is nonsense.” But look at how we actually write out the date:
November 15th, 2013.
The comma there is meaningful. This isn’t Medium Thing Little Thing Big Thing. It’s Thing, Clarifying Information. Thing takes the format of (Category Of Thing) (Identifier Of Thing), because when you’re finding something you go by category first.
Also, as with most ^English things that are considered “American”, this format started in the U.K. It was apparently popularized by newspapers. I’m going to go out on a limb and hypothesize that it was because if the date comes first, you’d have to un-set the text for the month potentially every single day, whereas if the month comes first, you’re only changing the day when you change the day. Basically, the same logic for why calendars are organized by month first. Having the thing that changes most often first is inefficient. Having the thing that changes least often (the year) first front-loads the least significant piece of information. So they put the month first as a balanced approach.

Gail Dines, Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality
I think the most chilling part of this book is reading what average porn consumers and what men in the porn industry say. It’s not that I already didn’t know that they think this, but it’s jarring to hear it confirmed
I’ve always wondered where there is so much anal sex in porn. Now I wish I could unhear this reason.
IT’S FINALLY THE CHRISTMAS SEASON
I CAN FINALLY REBLOG THIS
Best Christmas movie.
It is December 6th, and I remember.
I was 13 years old when Marc Lépine opened fire and murdered 14 women for being at engineering school when he wasn’t. He blamed feminism for the situation he was in, and murdered these women for being in non-traditional jobs, for being there.
Every year, the memorials I go to are different. Some are quiet - I remember several winters in the snow, holding candles and reciting names like a talisman against violence.
Geneviève Bergeron, 21 years old. Hélène Colgan, 24 years old. Nathalie Croteau, 24 years old.
When I was younger, they seemed impossibly mature and sophisticated. I used to imagine them laughing and enjoying university, cut down without warning. Now that I’m 35, they seem so young, and I wonder if they were afraid."
Self reblog from last year. Still worth reading. Still remembering.
Today is the anniversary of the Montreal Massacre.
I will not forget.
"What seems to be the problem here?"
don’t lie. you know this is a crossover you’d want to see.
