Bad, Fucking, and God: Sexy Bible Quotes, Inspired by Some Birds my Friend saw Fucking Outside her House, ao3tagoftheday: oxymoronicromantic: ao3tagoftheday: [Image Description: Tags reading “sexy bible quotes, inspired by some birds my friend saw fucking outside her house”] The AO3 Tag of the Day is: This is one hell of a non-sequitor “On the day when the Lord spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt, 29 the Lord said to Moses, “I am the Lord; tell Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I say to you.” 30 But Moses said to the Lord, “Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips. How will Pharaoh listen to me?” 7 And the Lord said to Moses, “See, I have made you like God to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron shall be your prophet. 2 You shall speak all that I command you, and your brother Aaron shall tell Pharaoh to let the people of Israel go out of his land.” …I don’t think it’s telling anyone that they’re doing activism wrong???? Anyways. Song of Songs is sexier. Ok! First off, thanks for putting the verses in; that makes my life easier! Second, Song of Songs is undoubtedly sexy, but the phrase “uncircumcised lips” is much sexier. Here’s why:“Uncircumcised lips” is a literal translation of the Hebrew, and scholars have spent millennia trying to figure out what the fuck it means. Because, like, it’s a weird fucking phrase, let’s be real. Actually, let’s all take a moment to imagine what that might physically look like. We deserve it.Anyway, back on topic. Most scholars have ended up interpreting it as saying that Moses has some kind of speech impediment. But that’s really a stretch. I mean, if that’s what was meant, why not say, “a man of broken speech” or something like that? No, I think the meaning of that phrase is a lot simpler.Circumcision is the sign of the Jewish covenant with G-d. In this period of the Bible, after G-d and Abraham made the covenant but before the Law was given at Mt. Sinai, circumcision was the single, defining thing that set the Jewish people apart from everyone else. So what does it mean to have uncircumcised lips? I submit that to speak with uncircumcised lips is to speak with a non-Jewish voice.But Moses is Jewish! Why would his voice not be? Because, Moses is unique among the Jewish people. He wasn’t raised as a slave. That’s what the Jewish people are in this period and have been for hundreds of years. They’re slaves. For generations, that slavery has defined and warped their culture. Moses has never been a slave and has never lived among his people who are. He may be Jewish, but his understanding of his people, and therefore his ability to speak for them, is non-existent.So G-d tells Moses to speak to Pharoah on behalf of the Jewish people and Moses says no. How will he speak for his people, advocate for them, demand their freedom, when he can’t speak with their voice? He can’t do it and he tells G-d no. No, I won’t speak for the slaves when I am free. It’s not my place.So what does G-d say? He says Moses is right. He tells Moses to give G-d’s message to Aaron, a man who has been a slave all his life, and let Aaron go to Pharoah and speak for the Jewish people. Because Aaron is of them, understands them, their pain, their oppression, in a way that Moses, a free man, can’t and never will. Aaron speaks with a truly Jewish voice, with circumcised lips, so he must be the one who speaks for the Jewish people.So basically, G-d tells Moses to speak over an oppressed group he isn’t a part of, Moses says “no that’s bad activism”, and G-d says “you’re right oppressed people should speak and direct their own fight against oppression.”In conclusion, sure, the Song of Songs is sexy, but have you ever tried telling G-d that he needs to work harder to prioritize marginalized voices?

Apparently, Baseball, and Beautiful: crime show: well we don't know what time she was taken but as you can see in this convenience store security footage she's mouthing something and our lip reading technology tells us she's saying 'those three wise men they ve got a semi by the sea which are lyrics to James Blunt's song Wisemen which was playing on that store's favoured radio station at approximately 3:18PM and she disappears from view exactly five minutes later so therefore m crying cause most secunty cams would have timestamps crime show: now see usually we'd manage to get a timestamp from the security footage but unfortunately in this case the cameras only record a live feed and while you would think this means we shouldn't be able to see the footage at all, luckily a famous Twutch streamer happened to be using it as their background footage while recording yesterday so jenroses yes, but can you blow it up and enhance it? unfortunately this particular footage is extremely low quality and very grainy but as Izoom in on this super blurry pixelated mage you can see the details become much clearer and easier to identify But what about the extremely specific pollen found on the camera lens? good eye! originally I didn't even notice it was there but whie combing through the footage I noticed three different people sneezed whille in view of the camera. I did some research and found that the particles represent the pollen of this obscure plant life that is native to this particular state, which really doesn't help us, except that it only ever blooms in the opposite season! So I did some digging and found four nurseries within a 50 mile radius, only one of which sell that plant all year round, which of course means mongolman101 Hold on just one moment! If the twitch streamer was using the cameras live feed as background, then we should know the ime of the crime! The twitch archive should mark how long the streamer had been on by the time of the perpetrators presence onscreen, and if we know when they went live, we will know the time the perpetrator was in the building DAMNIT jONES THIS ISN'T YOUR CASE WELL IT'S MY CASE NOW! The Captain thinks your kidnapping is related to my investigation into that cult up state. So, apparently, we're supposed to work together. I'm not any happier than you are. but I hate sharing! TOUGH SHIT MCNAMARA! Your kidnapping case is somehow connected with that cult that's been sacrificing its members to in the belief that it will appease the elder god Cthulhu. Now, I don't like it any more than you do, and I'm worse at sharing than a toddler with a new favorite toy, but lives may well be on the line here! Are you willing to put aside our differences, and do what needs to be done?! Alright, but when we catch the perp he's mine. I don't care if he's sacrificed a hundred victims to goddamn Mickey Mouse! That man may know who killed my father, and I wont let anyone get in my way -not even someone with your develish smile. Do you think you're the only one who wants to find Eric's murderer?1 He was my partnerl He was my friend Iknow we haven't worked together before, but this case will have us working together for a while, until we eventually find your fathers killer. And I can see this case taking us a long time, and defining both of our lives for the foreseeable future. But don't worry McNamara, my years of experience on the force, put together with your grit, tenacity, and loose understanding of the rules will make for a great partnership, with plenty of laughs and sexual tension to go around. Until some being from on high decides the precinct isn't ready for a same sex couple, and I rekindle my relationship with my previously unmentioned ex-wife. But we, and some unknown watchers of our adventures, will always know we were meant to be together, weirdly large age gap be damned! Yeah, and while Eric was off playing cops and robbers with you, I grew up without a dad! Do you know how many times I stared at my baseball glove, wishing he was there to throw it to me? You may have lost Eric, but I never even got to have him! But you're right. This case will definitely take at least a full year, especially with the fact that we will be constantly interrupted with other, smaller cases, one of which will be halloween themed. Were working together for the forseeable future, and my playful countenance and morbid wit will very quickly mesh with your hardened attitude and tendency to keep secrets. And while you go back to your unhappy, stiff relationship with your ex wife, I will be shown having constant meaningless sex with a multitude of beautiful women so that the writers can really get across how Not Gay I am. It's gonna be a wild ride, Jones. And there had better be stakeouts. executive producer dick wolf Source: aloverthegaf Tumblr Crime Show

The title isn’t the most eloquent thing ever but the article wasn’t encouraging cheating, where you go behind your partners back, but instead looking at the issue of cheating as a not black-and-white thing where there’s one horribly evil person who just wanted to have fun/get laid with one traumatized-for-life victim. Instead, like most- nah, let me say with ANYTHING in real life beyond fiction, the article sees the grays in cheating and why the person cheated in the first place. Not to say that cheating isn’t a horrible thing to do, but I feel like people need to understand that there are reasons people do the things they do. People who cheat are human beings. They could feel horrible about it, they could be trapped in a marriage or relationship that they don’t feel they can escape, they can feel insecure and unloved. Again, not to say it’s something you should ever do, but dehumanizing someone over a mistake is just as bad in my opinion. There’s nowhere where they can talk about their experiences, and it’s likely we know a lot of people who have cheated in our lives even if they haven’t (or were too scared) to tell us about it. </p></blockquote> <p>“dehumanizing someone over a <b>mistake</b>”<br/></p> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="1453" data-orig-width="1280" style=""><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/b46b82f946515987635b2e89242b3766/tumblr_inline_p15vbwp0N81syqsd4_540.jpg" data-orig-height="1453" data-orig-width="1280"/></figure><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="1453" data-orig-width="1280"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/a90f07cba2ec91c06050aab2e8db4b93/tumblr_inline_p15vcgALY11syqsd4_540.jpg" data-orig-height="1453" data-orig-width="1280"/></figure><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="1453" data-orig-width="1280"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/8bf1b39fc5036c8cdbd976cfb89b6c89/tumblr_inline_p15vctsANK1syqsd4_540.jpg" data-orig-height="1453" data-orig-width="1280"/></figure><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="1453" data-orig-width="1280"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/bedd610984be09395d3e890baba4a152/tumblr_inline_p15vd52e6u1syqsd4_540.jpg" data-orig-height="1453" data-orig-width="1280"/></figure><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="1453" data-orig-width="1280"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/b6ae8e67e4ef581db534a9d75c17945a/tumblr_inline_p15ved8Rom1syqsd4_540.jpg" data-orig-height="1453" data-orig-width="1280"/></figure><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="1453" data-orig-width="1280"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/209ea0ffa5930a051f9a888121ad1979/tumblr_inline_p15vf4N2O91syqsd4_540.jpg" data-orig-height="1453" data-orig-width="1280"/></figure><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="1453" data-orig-width="1280"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/dec0f5c82aec02545f9e81bb0c155565/tumblr_inline_p15vfl9QBz1syqsd4_540.jpg" data-orig-height="1453" data-orig-width="1280"/></figure></blockquote> <p>If you cheat, you’re trash. No if and or buts. I’m looking at all y'all, I’m lookin in the mirror, I’m lookin down the street, everydamn body. If you cheat, you’re trash.</p> </blockquote><p>Ahh yes, tumblr’s traditional “One strike you’re out” policy. I love the rationale of this and other similar things that says, “If you do a bad thing you are a bad person. Forever. There is never anything else you can do to not be a bad person.” It has such an interestingly Christian vibe to it. </p><p>First of all that image set is a lie. There are different scenarios that come together that can lead to this mistake. Also it is defining “mistake” the same way as “accident”. Of course cheating isn’t generally an accident. But, immediately it lumps in people that are not in full faculty of their senses. “You got too many drinks with him”. I’m going to put a big “No” stamp on that because if the shit you do when inebriated can’t be considered proper consent in the first place then you did not intentionally cheat (*unless it was premeditated while sober obviously). </p><p>Now let me tell you up front. I cheated once in college. Yes I know I’m trash for life with no chance for redemption but hear me out anyway. I loved my boyfriend, probably a lot more than I should have. But one night I was woken up by someone knocking on my door. It was my apartmentmate. My incredibly hot, straight, wrestler apartmentmate. He was horny and he wanted to just get off even if it was with a dude. It was like a cheesy impossible porn plot come to life. We had sex. Never once, through the entire thing, and I swear this upon everything I hold dear, never ONCE did I think “I have a boyfriend. This is wrong.” I was so caught up in the shock and fantasy of the situation it wasn’t until he left that I realized what I’d done. I was horrified. I cried and cried and as soon as the sun was up I called my boyfriend and asked him to come over. When he got there I immediately broke down sobbing and begged for him to forgive me. He did, and we moved on. And you know what? I NEVER did it again in any relationship. Did I mean to cheat on him? No. Did I? Yes. Was what I did wrong? Absolutely! Do I regret what I did? Endlessly. Does that make me horrible trash for the rest of my life? I really don’t think so. </p><p>People do things wrong. People do make conscious choices that they later realize were wrong. People ask for forgiveness. If someone does it multiple times, it’s not a mistake anymore. If someone conceals their mistake, it’s not a mistake anymore. But if someone genuinely acknowledges they did something wrong and asks for forgiveness and NEVER allows it to happen again, I think that forgiveness should be granted. And you know what? I’ve been cheated on twice since then by different guys in my life. It hurt, horribly. Both times it was an ongoing and intentional thing. But if either of them apologized to me and asked me to forgive them and showed they would sincerely never do it again I would give them a chance anyway. </p><p>Tumblr, I love your desire for justice and truth both socially and personally. But when you break everything into black and white and refuse to grant any room for forgiveness you are teaching yourselves to cut people out of your lives that could be legitimately good people that made a bad choice and deserve forgiveness. Of course there are people that don’t deserve it, who wouldn’t sincerely try to earn it, but if you say everyone who makes 1 bad choice, or 1 series of mistakes, is trash forever then I think that makes you the bad person when you are incapable of granting kindness and forgiveness to another person. </p></blockquote> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="494" data-orig-width="500"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/cbd162d73523bc7796d2d8ce24e14a9f/tumblr_inline_p8ho52Yc0A1t42r6u_500.jpg" data-orig-height="494" data-orig-width="500"/></figure></blockquote> <p>Lmao did she really think anyone wanted to read her porno fantasy story justifying cheating?</p>

If you’ve written one of these genres and intend to publish it, the best would be to put it under another name (with the exception of steampunk, cyberpunk, and biopunk). For example, if you have written a candlepunk story, you can propose it as fantasy, alternate historical fiction, or any other genre it may fit in. While atomicpunk is quite common, it’s not well known by that name. If you have written an atompunk story, the best way to market it would be to call it retro science fiction.</span><br/><span> </span><br/><span>But what’s the difference between punk genres and historical fiction?

Arguing, Tumblr, and American: IF THE MINIMUM WAGE WAS REALLY "NEVER MEANT TO BE A LIVING WAGE, THEN WHY DID FDR, THE PRESIDENT WHO SIGNED IT INTO LAW IN 1938, SAY: "No business which depends for existence on paying less than living wages to its workers has any right to continue in this country By living wages, I mean more than the bare subsistence level I mean the wages of a decent living Franklin D.

I don’t really think he should be your yardstick for human decency.</p><p>Second, I have never seen the goalposts move so often as they do when people are defining what constitutes a “living wage“. Labor is a commodity, and it’s one of the only commodities that people argue should have a fixed price regardless of its actual worth. If I told you that apples should always be at least $10 no matter what, you would laugh at me. But all labor is worth $15 an hour?</p>

America, Children, and College: Bloomberg Business @business Follow "I don't believe in free college": Hillary Clinton during #DemDebate bloom.bg/1 K1JVXR RETWEETS L 136 LIKES odinsblog: asterroc: holyromanhomo: fonzworthcutlass: scrunyuns: lagonegirl: Of course you don’t. Free college might hinder the school-to-prison pipeline your  prison owning donors depend on 👆👆👆👆👆👆👆👆👆👆👆👆👆👆👆 welp; Actual quote, in context: “I believe that we should make community college free. We should have debt-free college if you got to a public college or university. You should not have to borrow a dime to pay tuition… I disagree with free college for everybody. I don’t think taxpayers should be paying to send Donald Trump’s kids to college.“ [video link] Don’t spread misinformation just to fit a narrative, Clinton is advocating for there to be a cap on who gets free college so that the government doesn’t have to subsidize the education of people with enough disposable income to pay for it themselves. The plan she’s proposing would have a better chance of being passed, is more cost-effective, and still opens up higher education to low-income individuals who previously couldn’t afford it.  I teach at a community college so I’ve been following her plan, and she’s recently actually posted a bit about where she expects the money for free community college to come from. I mean, my salary’s gotta come from somewhere, right? You can’t expect schools to lose millions of tuition dollars for nothing. The concept of Clinton’s plan is that the burden is on the states to figure out how to make public higher ed debt free for the students, and those states which do so successfully will then receive federal grants. This incentivizes states to figure out a solution that works for each separate state (rather than a federally imposed plan that might not work for all states); states will only do it if the rewards (grants) are enough to make up the loss in tuition, so I’m not worried about my state coming up short on my salary; and it’s even possible that the grants could end up being more than the tuition losses which would mean that the state budget (or the PHE institutes’ budgets) will also benefit and not only the students in question. The details of this plan do not yet exist (e.g., defining “debt-free”, amounts of grants, where that money will come from in the federal budget), but at the current stage I don’t expect that level of detail. So in short, it’s a good idea. Okay, so here’s why this is bullshit. 1. “Universal” means anybody “means testing” ≠ “universal” We don’t “means test” free, public roads and highways. Everyone who wants to use them can use them. We don’t “means test” who has access to public transportation like buses and subways. Because as expensive and under-invested as they are, they’re still a (virtually free) public common. Public education is universal right. Including college. That’s why we consider education a part of the public commons. We don’t means test people for high school or middle school to “weed out the people who can afford better”……do you know why that’s an unnecessary test? Because the people who can afford better WILL send their children to more expensive pRiVaTe schools. To buy OP’s argument, you’d have to be foolish enough to believe that a billionaire is going to somehow “get over” on us by sending their children to a free public college, when they can afford to send them to a prestigious, private, Ivy League college. Does that make sense to anyone??? 2. Okay, just for argument’s sake, let’s say I’m completely off base with my line of reasoning on point #1 above….even IF the 400 wealthiest families in America sent their kids to free, public universities to “get over” on the rest of us, DO YOU REALLY EVEN CARE, IF THAT MEANS THAT LITERALLY EVERYONE ELSE GETS A SHOT AT FREE COLLEGE? “Welp, 99 poor kids might not go to college, but at least we stopped that one rich kid from going to a public university for free” (now please google “Pyrrhic victory”)    Are you sO married to the Republican concept of “means testing” social programs that you would deny free education to 99 percent of the people who need it? Really?? No, REALLY??? Here’s the thing: basic human rights, and access to things that fall under the public commons (like education and healthcare) should never be “means tested”….that’s an argument that has been used by both conservatives and neoliberals to cut social programs. In short, “means testing” social programs is a decidedly conservative concept. It’s a diversionary tactic that has been reliably used as a preface to “austerity” and to cut safety net programs, like TANF in the 90s 3. And finally, bringing up “state’s rights” is just another conservative (neoliberal) way to frame the argument. I’m not an educator, but I am the son of a lifelong teacher and social activist, and I’ve spent way too many afternoons helping my mom out in countless classrooms to buy OP’s framing - let me say this as plainly as possible: If we can find ways to pay for wars and increase our military budget decade after decade, then there’s no legitimate reason we cannot do the same with education. No reason at all. None. So I completely reject the premise that universal education is somehow uniquely expensive or unattainable. It isn’t. Other countries have figured this out without regressing to conservative notions like block grants or “state’s rights”…free college needs to be done on a federal or constitutional level. Period Oppps and that’s tea!

Funny, Memes, and Money: My about me does not say I'm ancap. It says I'm a conservative minded libertarian. And I am passionately against communism in all it's forms as it does nothing but harm black, brown, and every other kind of person. ejjonez @libertarirynn Funny, I'm against capitalism for the same reasons. I'm not even saying you gotta be an anarchist or a communist or whatever but, have you at least read some proper criticism of the system you support? Sorry for misinterpreting I guess, your title says ancap memes so I kinda figured you were an ancap. <p><a href="http://oculoslux.tumblr.com/post/165487176622/libertarirynn-ejjonez-really-capitalism-has" class="tumblr_blog">oculoslux</a>:</p><blockquote> <p><a href="https://libertarirynn.tumblr.com/post/165486646224/ejjonez-really-capitalism-has-done-nothing-for" class="tumblr_blog">libertarirynn</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://tmblr.co/mLkBNqmONa48nW7sdNBIqQg">@ejjonez</a><br/> Really? Capitalism has done nothing for black people? Did Madame CJ Walker get rich in a communist society? As for “proper criticism” sure I’ve read “criticisms” of capitalism and I haven’t seen a good one yet. Meanwhile there is not a single functionally successful example of communism so let’s decide which one makes more sense.</p> May I remind you that communism involves a much higher level of government involvement (and don’t give me that anarchist communist nonsense because any spread out highly populated communist society has involved the government), and this is the same government that enslaved Africans a few hundred years ago. Somehow I don’t think giving them more power is the greatest idea or in the best interest of African-Americans but maybe that’s just me.</blockquote> <p>Slavery was supported by people, not<b> just</b> the government and most civil rights gains have come from legislation. At the same time, a lot of race based discrimination has been from the government, but again we can say the same thing about general society. The difference, to me, is that without a force similar to the government, there isn’t really any counter play to a racist society. Everything would play the same, things would just be private. Governments have seemed more of an asset than anything else.<br/><br/>And one(such as this person) could define socialist policies as communist policies and only define capitalism under almost no government involvement, which quickly whittles down if you stop defining anything that involves patents as a capitalist success.<br/><br/></p> </blockquote> <p>“Slavery was supported by the people” people empowered by the government. There were laws dictating slave practices. There was like a whole war and everything. I’ve never understood why people act like the government had nothing to do with slavery or only had a passive role in it. And there is absolutely a force that can fight against racism outside of the government. Read up on the Montgomery bus boycott. The laws begin to change because it turns out most people like money more than they like racist ideals. No government can actually stop racism anyway since it’s a frame of mind. If there’s a store owner that doesn’t want me shopping there because I’m black I don’t want the government forcing him to let me shop there just so I can give business to somebody who hates me. I’d rather give business to someone else and tell everyone I know to do the same.</p>
