I also run a more "traditional," professional-like blog for thought-provoking essay type posts about politics, religion, books, culture, and more. I am trying to get really serious with it and possibly turn it into something legit (or paid!) so if you could check it out and maybe get some commenting/buzz going, that would be the best ever.
okay but why don’t more people talk about Night at the Museum like
poc characters and people being portrayed by poc people
this movie is so good
and it has one of the funniest, best, most ridiculous friendships in movie history
and you have Robin Williams as Teddy Roosevelt I mean
and if all that didn’t convince you there’s also a t-Rex skeleton that plays fetch with one of its own ribs
why would you ever idolize cops when firefighters exist
yeah seriously have you ever heard of “corrupt firefighter”
what would a ‘corrupt firefighter’ even be. he put out that fire with a little TOO much water. he was a little rough with the cat he rescued from a tree for a little old lady
Firefighters are basically universally amazing, selfless people. The ONLY POINT of their job is saving people (and property etc.) But for cops, a huge chunk get into it to ‘put bad guys away’ and that’s part of the reason we have such a problem. They don’t think their job is about helping people, just fighting them- granted, ‘bad guys,’ but it’s so easy to become labelled a bad guy.
If I was ever in a sketchy situation I would like 100% seriously seek out a fireman or fire station over police. True story.
This is a big win for anti-rape activists, many of whom have been touting the necessity of an “affirmative consent” standard for years. California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) has the next month to sign the bill into law. If he does, schools across the state would be required to define consent before engaging in sexual activity as an “affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement” or risk losing state financial aid funding.
THIS IS FUCKING FANTASTIC.
YES MEANS YES LAWS ARE THE BEST!!! This really, really needs to be the standard everywhere. It would help so much.
