Nerdiness, politics, and LOADS of fangirling!

the fact that pretty teeth are only known as “white” and “straight” is a manifestation of our hatred for minorities 

when people find a way to turn dental hygiene into a social justice issue, that’s when you know this website has gone overboard

See this picture? This comes from a town in Canada where a 24 pack of water bottles is 104 dollars and formula milk for a baby is priced at 55 dollars a pack. What’s more, a pack of diapers is 95 dollars and one head of lettuce is 26 dollars. Inuit people are starving in a country known for it’s generosity.
If you don’t believe this is true, you can find more images like this here. This is the only grocery store these people have in their small towns, and many people are going hungry & elderly are dying faster.
You’ll send aid to foreign children that are starving, so why won’t you pay a little extra to feed the people in your own country who work hard & still can’t afford the prices for healthy food for their families?
Please have a heart and reblog this photo to raise awareness that even in our own countries people are starving, join the movement and show the government that we won’t sit by and watch people starve. 
If you think this will make your blog ugly you’re wrong. Children in a first world country are getting sick & starving, and nobody is even aware it’s happening. You can let people know by reblogging and showing you care. People I am close to, my friends and future in-laws are going through this. 

Love how little attention this post gets from my beach blog followers.

Ok I didn’t think this could possibly be for real, but I found a news source on the matter. This is insane.

YES, this is real.

the way the Canadian government treats the native people here is actually disgusting. The reserves sometimes have a lower life expectancy and the general living quality of third world countries. This isn’t common knowledge and it needs to be.

just when you thought racism couldn’t get anymore racismer

Judge says two dads can't adopt their own children

gaywrites:

Jason Hanna and Joe Riggs got married in Massachusetts and now live in Texas. They’re raising newborn twins — they worked with an egg donor and a surrogate so they could each father one of the children, making the babies biological half-brothers. 

But the legal hurdle they’ve been thrown hardly takes any of that into consideration. A Texas judge has ruled that not only can they not adopt each other’s biological child, but the men’s names cannot appear on the kids’ birth certificates — even the child that each man biologically fathered. 

"Actually, I think that’s what surprised me the most was a family court," Riggs told Dallas-Fort Worth’s KDFW. “I guess I expected them to be looking out for the best interest of our kids, but I felt we walked out that day and it wasn’t in the best interest of our kids.”

According to GLAAD, “The law is ‘unclear’ as to whether LGBT parents can jointly adopt, meaning such family protections vary from judge to judge and county to county.”

Although the federal government recognizes the couple’s marriage, the state of Texas does not, making second-parent adoption more difficult to obtain. The judge did not elaborate on her reasoning for denying the men’s request to be listed as the fathers of their biological children, and neither man has seen his son’s birth certificate, GLAAD notes. 

This is absolutely horrifying. I don’t even know what to say. 

Me waiting to hear the MRA’s angry responses and plan of action to fight what is clearly some anti-fatherhood legislation:

So I’ve seen a whole bunch of posts about body positivity. And it would be great, but they’re really bad at actually representing different body types; big girls in particular. So I’ve drawn a comparison.
I’m tired of seeing posts that totally miss the point. Those posts are supposed to make you feel good about your body. But it’s hard for bigger girls to feel good about themselves if they’re represented by women that aren’t big. Fat is okay. But here’s some things that people almost always ignore when drawing bigger ladies:
- Rolls
- Cellulite
- Stretch marks
And some misconceptions/ common mistakes:
- Larger breasts ( a LOT larger) 
- Wider hips
- Same size waist as girls with less body fat
I’m going to put it bluntly: I’m sick of seeing fatter girls be misrepresented. I’m tired of seeing posts getting glory for drawing bigger girls when they don’t. I have yet to see a body positivity post that shows cellulite, stretch marks, folds, and spillage. These things are real, and they’re beautiful.
So try and remember these things next time you try and represent fat girls. Because if you’re not thinking about the “ugly” stuff, you’re doing it wrong.

Idea Pitchers: Okay, so we were thinking of either addressing how there are not enough women in lead roles, not enough POCs in lead roles, not enough lesbians in lead roles, not enough unconventionally attractive people in lead roles, or not enough trans representation in lead roles. Which of those do you want to address?

Orange is the New Black Writers: Yes.

Hello tumblr.

I’ve noticed that a lot of y’all are really into the hit Netflix show Orange is the New Black. Now, I’m not going to bore you with any prison abolitionist rant here. I just have a request.

You know how Miss Claudette doesn’t get letters? How…
