These are a pair of onesies. For infants. One reads “i’m just a cupcake looking for my stud muffin” and the other reads “girls dig chubby guys”. Heteros really need to stop trying to force their lifestyle on children.

People are really creepy about pushing heterosexuality on babies in general. Like “oh, he loves to smile at girls, he’s such a flirt” and “What a pretty little girl; your daddy is going to have to beat the boys away with a stick”
Like can you not even wait for your infants to gain control of their neck muscles before you start pushing your sexual preferences on them?

oh my gosh this this this this this
so much
it makes me so uncomfortable

OMG yes, so creepy. People are already gendering/sexualizing my fetus. Creeps my shit out.

NO BUT YOU GUYS. The same people who bought my son a “stud” bib and a onsie alluding to an erection/boobs threw a fucking fit when I put milo in a my little pony top that I was forcing homosexuality on him.
WHAT THE FUCKIN FUCKO.

What also concerns me is that people are putting clothing articles on their infants that allude to sexual things.

if capitalism is so voluntary, why does america have to keep using the cia to make sure other countries keep it?

If the free market naturally corrects problems, why do we have to give subsidies to large business interests and bail out banks?

If capitalism ensures that those that work the hardest make the most money, why doesn’t a coal miner make as much as a CEO?

"Chronic pain sufferers are not addicted to pain killers. Chronic pain sufferers are addicted to not having to be aware of every inch of their body for every waking moment. Chronic pain sufferers are addicted to the freedom of nothingness, and don’t you dare judge them for wanting something you get free of charge."

This is why I find the idea of worrying that I’ll get ‘dependent’ almost laughable - of course I’ll be constantly dependent, I’m constantly in pain.

(via lumpyspaceprinxe)

I wish doctors understood this.

(via lesshumansmorecats)

I’m more physically dependent on my seizure meds than people on opiates are to those meds, and nobody calls it an addiction, even though unlike most people’s response to opiate withdrawal, seizure med withdrawal CAN KILL YOU.

Physical dependence and addiction are two different things. Get it straight. The fear of everyone getting addicted to opiates if they take them for pain relief is completely unfounded by science. It happens but not frequently compared to people who don’t get addicted. And most of this is based in fear and hatred of addicts, and the drug war, rather than concern for anyone’s safety.

If you were concerned for people’s safety you’d give them opiates. They are the safest of the long-term painkillers — anticonvulsants, NSAIDS, and steroids all have much more dangerous side-effects. And untreated pain is not just severely uncomfortable, it’s also dangerous to the body’s ability to heal from just about anything medically, and puts the body under such strain that you become sicker and in more danger of being sick than you would if your pain is treated. So even if treating the sensations of pain was some kind of frivolous thing — which it isn’t — treating the effects of pain on the body, is nowhere near frivolous.

(via youneedacat)

Not to mention, if safety were the actual concern, they would stop formulating opiates with acetominophen for no medical reason in a deliberate attempt to harm and eventually kill addicts. This policy also ends up injuring many “legitimate” users even when we strictly adhere to prescribed dosages, but I will never blame addicts for the government and healthcare institutions deciding that the best way to handle addiction is to murder the people who suffer from it.

I find it weird that every time people personify the Seven Deadly Sins, they’ll make six of them portray the doer (someone who IS angry, someone who IS slothful, etc), but then they go to Lust and portray them as object being acted upon (someone OTHER PEOPLE would lust after).

Like honestly it would be more accurate to make them some scruffy white dude with a fedora than a sexy girl with curves.

psa: if someone is

- a woman, or someone who’s generally perceived as female and treated accordingly

- a person with disabilities that they spent a significant part of their lives, especially in childhood and adolescence, getting treatment/therapy for


just assume that they have been effectively brainwashed into believing that it’s bad or wrong or selfish for them to contradict others, assert boundaries, or say no

if they do make some firm statement of preference, do not press and pry and pick away at it ‘cause you think they’ll be able to stick to it if they’re really really sincere and not just playing games

understand that this is not an equal power dynamic

"The ability to experience positive emotions, like love and attachment, would mean that dogs have a level of sentience comparable to that of a human child. And this ability suggests a rethinking of how we treat dogs.
DOGS have long been considered property. Though the Animal Welfare Act of 1966 and state laws raised the bar for the treatment of animals, they solidified the view that animals are things — objects that can be disposed of as long as reasonable care is taken to minimize their suffering.
But now, by using the M.R.I. to push away the limitations of behaviorism, we can no longer hide from the evidence. Dogs, and probably many other animals (especially our closest primate relatives), seem to have emotions just like us. And this means we must reconsider their treatment as property.”

U know, I never visit cafes with signs like these, because fuck you. It’s fine for a cafe to have no wi-fi, but not to be condescending as fuck.
What if my friends / family members / colleagues live really far away and using the internet is my only chance to talk to them?
What if I need to get away from my homophobic home to talk to my girlfriend via Skype? To check LGBT websites? To rant about my family on Twitter without fear of them seeing me do it?
What if I’m all alone and just wanna fucking talk to somebody but not chat up random people in that cafe who came there for their own business?
What if I just don’t wanna fucking talk to anybody but have coffee and read the internet?!

Reblogging for spot-on commentary.

I go to cafes to work, not to make conversation. sorry that’s not a valid use of my time, to u

i’m getting very very sick of casually anti-millennial stuff like this
even if it isn’t OH YOU LAZY KIDS NOWADAYS, it’s still anti-internet and anti-technology, and if they want to drive my business away from somewhere with stupid shitty passive-aggressive signs, that’s fine, they will not get my money
but for real, FUCK YOU, i can consume more information in three hours than you will in the average week

So you were too cheap to buy a router. Good for you.
