Just a reminder that the LGBT community isn’t some magical place where everyone is accepted. 

Welcome to the LGBT “community,” where the B is made-up and the T doesn’t matter!

Someone get this guy a fucking medal.

They made birth control for men. However it never got past the clinical testing stage because its side effects were things like “moodiness, extreme cramping, hunger, increased sexual drive” and were considered INHUMANE.

what the fuck do they think women go through every goddamn month seriously

I’M SORRY MEN CAN’T HANDLE MENSTRATION

men are pussies

Men are not pussies because they can’t handle having one

men are penises

the post was amazing and the comments made it better.

Oh, it’s even worse than that.
Hormonal birth control for men has been a solved problem since the 1970s, and the current iterations of the technology are actually substantially superior to equivalent treatments for women, demonstrating higher effectiveness, less dangerous side effects, and lower prevalence of side effects in virtually all modern trials. At this point, some forty years on, such treatments continue to be refused certification on the ostensible basis of concerns over the purely hypothetical effects of long-term use.
Meanwhile, a hormonal birth control treatment for women whose known and documented side effects include “sudden death” can go from the laboratory to the pharmacy shelf in under five years.
Really shows you where our priorities lie, doesn’t it?

Feminism had a noble cause for equality until it became a hate movement .

People have been accusing feminism of being a hate movement since women started trying to get the right to vote.

YUP! Remember this when people say feminism has gone too far! Because treating women as full human beings has always been seen as “going too far”.

this fucking mentality that you can’t be best friends with your significant other, that romance ruins a friendship, that BOTH FRIENDSHIP AND ROMANCE CANNOT OCCUR SIMULTANEOUSLY kills me like

that’s such a horrible, horrible and unhealthy mentality to have

I don’t know why Wheatley is always included on lists complaining about characters without a set human appearance being depicted as blonde skinny white dudes

other people like Cecil or that clock guy, totally understandable, but Wheatley is an ignorant and insensitive British-sounding dick who fucks everything up as soon as he’s put in a position of power

he is absolutely a white dude

i laughed harder than i should have.

One common misconception people have about bisexual people is that the abbreviation “bi” is short for “bisexual”, when really it stands for “Black Island”, the place where all bisexual people are born and raised by pirates. All bisexual people are pirates. Run

“…and then he makes that frownface, forever.” — the team behind the superhero movie you compared to The Godfather
4 Personality Flaws Movies Think Are Awesome

#4. Never Getting Over Anything
The weird thing is that the suffering, the stubborn inability to get over fucking anything, is what powers their badassery. The only reason John “Nicolas Cage” Travolta hunts down Nicolas “John Travolta” Cage in Face/Off is because his son is dead. Inigo Montoya got good at sword-fighting only because of his dead parent. Spider-Man, Green Lantern, Batman are only superheroes because they’ve been made crazy by loss. If Batman saw literally one therapist, he would be a far happier, more boring, rich playboy.
And, spoilers alert, that’s not how demons work in real life.

Georgia Police Kill Diabetic Black Man After Family Calls 911 Requesting Ambulance

thebicker:

A woman called 911 for an ambulance because she was worried that her 43-year-old fiance Jack Lamar Roberson was having complications with his diabetes. Instead, a police car showed up, and the officers walked inside and shot him four times. Roberson was unarmed and had his hands in the air when he was shot. His whole family - including his 8-year-old daughter - saw it happen.

Last year, the same county police force was responsible for the shooting of a 26-year-old unarmed black man. All officers are on administrative leave pending an investigation.

Smh

I’m sick.
