Salem was always fantastic.
Is he talking into a dildo in the first one??!
Yes, back in the 90s we all had dildos that ordered pizza. That’s why it was so great to be a 90s teen.

Thanks for this question. Bye! :)
straight boys are weak and pathetic, queer girls walk into the ladies changing room and see ten women naked, do they stare? do they say something inappropriate? do they make them uncomfortable? no because they have the common fucking sense to recognise when a situation is sexual and that people deserve the most basic level of respect to not be harassed, yet here we are banning shorts and low cut tops in school because straight boys are weak and pathetic
okay i made this post this morning and it has since had eighty two thousand notes, it’s been featured on reddit, facebook, twitter i’ve been sent multiple death threats and messages that i don’t even want to describe
and i have to apologise
i’ve seen the error of my ways
straight boys are not ’weak and pathetic’
straight boys are weak, pathetic and fucking annoying
i’ve seen this post a bunch and i wasn’t going to reblog it despite it being obviously beautiful and true just bc eh
but then i checked out floozys’s blog and she’s handling the post’s fame by just posting cat pics and then more cat pics. it’s all a beautiful cat blog by a nice young misandrist and i think she needs to be recognized for that. applause for the best handling of a viral post i’ve seen tbh
Tumblr unveiled a basic feature on its platform today that will make many users happy—if they notice it.
Did you know you can type @ to auto-link a username? You can! And as of today, you can now see notifications when someone @mentions you on your Activity page and your dashboard:
The awesome: MENTION!!! NOTIFICATIONS!!! ON YOUR ACTIVITY PAGE!!!!!
- if you have a lot of activity on your stream, forget about being able to find these notifications in the middle of all the other notes
- you don’t get email notifications, at least not yet.
- Tumblr users haven’t really noticed yet! So reblog! Mention people! Talk to each other! :)
YES YES YES YES YES
Oh hey, that’s neat.
is this legit? someone tag me in something i won’t believe it until i see it with my own eyes
when you feel your clothes fresh out of the oven
OKAY SO I REALIZED I USED OVEN INSTEAD OF DISHWASHER BUT I KINDA FORGOT WHAT IT WAS CALLED AND USED THE NEXT BEST GUESS I COULD THINK OF
It’s called a washing machine
i think its a dryer like who would be feeling wet ass clothes
this post is a fucking train wreck
can we talk about how much i hate posts that start with “can we talk about”?
jennifer fucking lawrence doesn’t think that bisexual women can have sex with men or have kids, and then referred to bisexuality as a “lesbian phase”
but she said that she likes food! shes so quirky and relatable you cant criticize her! she makes funny faces sometimes! did i mention she likes food!
I tried to look up the context of this and the original magazine article is no longer on the internet. BUT I found someone quoting the relevant paragraph in full (i.e. not just the direct quote from JL) here:
“I suggest that in the original comics Mystique was written as a lesbian, to which Lawrence counters, “No! That’s the first time I’ve heard that. She has kids, she has night crawlers, and she sleeps with Magneto!” And then she jokes, “Unless I’m completely wrong, I mean, she is 100 years old, she definitely had time for a lesbian phase.”
The interviewer told her that Mystique was a LESBIAN and she reacts to the term LESBIAN. She knows that Mystique is not a LESBIAN because she’s had kids and sleeps with Magneto. Obviously this is still problematic, but it’s not like she doesn’t understand bisexuality - it just didn’t come up in this conversation at all from her POV. She doesn’t know that Mystique is canonically bisexual, which is kind of dumb since she plays her, and the possibility of bisexuality should have occurred to her, that’s also pretty dumb and speaks to wider issues of bi erasure, but she’s not saying anything about bisexual women not having sex with men or having kids.
She’s said a lot of really problematic things, including other biphobic things (though I didn’t research them, so who knows what the context was), I’m not defending her from that, I’m just SO EXHAUSTED with this tumblr “gotcha” “friendly reminder that your favorite is hateful and terrible” culture using out of context quotes to give themselves a pat on the back about how much they know about random celebrities’ prejudices and dumb mistakes.
basically: hate whatever celebrities you want, but cite your sources if you’re going to claim a reason to justify it
Above is the “Know Anon” code that allows you to expose any hateful anons you wish at your own whim. If you know anyone who’s struggling with anonymous hate, reblog this for them.
- How to install
Simply copy the above code and paste it right after the <head> portion of the HTML coding on your blog. This is with the jQuery script included, so everything should be covered. Once you’ve done this, update and save, then exit your customize page.
Re-enter your customize page, and under “appearance” should be a button called “Enable Know Anon”, which may be on or off automatically, depending. Flip the switch to enable or disable it, then save.
- How to use
When you get anonymous hate or anon messages you find offensive, simply exit your Inbox, enter your Customize page, flip the switch to “on”, then save and exist. Re-enter your inbox, and any and all anonymous messages will be exposed with a URL, if they have one. Note that this includes everything, not just the hate. Another thing to note is that, once you expose anons in the inbox, you can’t un-expose them. Flipping the switch back to “off” does nothing.
Answer a message people thought was on anon, and gee, they’ll get a nasty little surprise, hmm? It’s better than a fake anonymous button because while you still can’t control who it exposes, you can control when to do so.
Remember though, that this isn’t the only way to stop anonymous hate. As always, there’s simply the “turn anonymous asks off” button. And thanks to the update from a few months ago, anons CAN be blocked.
That little hand right there? That’s the ignore button. It’s present on all asks sent, whether anon or otherwise. When you block an anon, you have the option to report them for spam or harassment, and it will permanently block them. It also blocks the IP address and computer, so that person can’t take advantage of extra accounts to continue sending you hate. It effectively wipes that person right out of your Tumblr life. They cannot contact your blog again, ever.
For the website that gives you the Know Anon code, with or without jQuery script, in case that causes trouble (most themes come with it pre-installed, but not all), go here.
[ Goodness, wow thank you very much for letting me know this existed! That was very considerate of you! ]
What we see through social media is a generation of ignorant social activists. Young men and women all too willing to care about and defend something they don’t truly understand and refuse to educate themselves further on because they assume the limited information they receive has been vetted by someone more knowledgeable than themselves. This happens on both sides of the fence, with both conservatives and liberals.
I’ve seen arguably intelligent young men and women stand up at banquets and rallies, demanding answers about things like healthcare, DOMA, federal military actions. Asking questions about things they’ve seen on Facebook, on twitter, things that they’ve taken little to no time to research for themselves, and they look like fools. No matter their age, they paint themselves with a red mark that announces ‘I’m not mature enough to be here, to discuss these issues’.
But even so, it isn’t truly about age. It’s about social awareness. You are not discounted until you make a mistake. Say the wrong thing or quote the wrong statistic. Until then, your legitimacy remains intact.
Tumblr is like this.
I’ve seen people furious over gay rights legislation that doesn’t actually exist. Wars that haven’t happened. Most recently text posts with tens of thousands of notes alleging that China and Russia are going to go to war with the US over Syria.
Blogs relaying damaging misinformation written by individuals who can’t seem to be bothered to read a newspaper or use google properly. This is a crippling trend, and no one sees it.
These people get untold attention and affirmation until one person with a large enough follower count points out the flaw in their argument. Corrects the mistake, and shifts the tide. But this doesn’t fix the thousands of people who liked and reblogged the original post. The damage is done.
If there is one thing I’ve learned from working on political campaigns, very little is more damaging than an activist who argues only one side of the story without recognizing the existence of the other; because your opinion, no matter how solid and seemingly factually based, is invalid the second your audience realizes they know more than you.
And the result of all of this is a generation of young activists who don’t understand why they aren’t being taken seriously."

^^ yet another reason why those “why is no-one on tumblr talking about [GLOBAL ISSUE]” posts are so damn maddening: my loves, my loves, tumblr is not the place we want to be learning about these things: everything on tumblr is a rumour. tumblr operates at the level of your social group aged 16, when it was well understood that one of the popular girls totally got a nose job over the summer and that nestle forced people at actual gunpoint to use formula rather than breast milk. let’s go elsewhere to find our facts.
