In light of that, I posit this alternative map of regions where Jason Derulo is potentially claiming where he knows what girls want: As we can see, if we assume that model, the vast majority of the area where Jason Derulo knows what girls want is either open ocean (the Atlantic, the Mediterranean Sea) or sparsely populated (the northern Sahara, the northern Arabian Desert, various desert portions of Iran and Afghanistan, and the southern Tibetan Plateau). Four of the ten most populated countries on the planet have no territory in it (Nigeria, Brazil, Japan, and Indonesia), and two which do have relatively little territory in it (the US and Russia). It is suggested that for all his boasting, Jason Derulo does not know what a probable majority of the world’s girls want. Perhaps Jason Derulo’s intention was never to proclaim to be omnipotent to the interests of the female gender. Perhaps he was instead expressing his humanity, or the limits of his knowledge.

shakisabell: Shakira’s article from TIME http://time.com/4665295/shakira-donald-trump-ban/ Shakira is so eloquent. An incomparable, caring star.: Shakira 14 mins . The recent ban on Muslims entering the U.S. proposed by Donald Trump and currently being reviewed in courts has ignited cries of resistance from both within the U.S. and abroad. l'd like to take a minute, with your indulgence, to add my voice to the heap. Because this is not just a U.S. issue. This is a human issue that has implications for all of us; American and non-American citizens like myself. Persecution against any group for religious beliefs or race is illegal and unconstitutional in the U.S. Period This isn't just an attack on Muslims or refugees -this is an attack on all humans and in particular, the ones most in need of protection. Right now, worldwide, 28 million children have been uprooted by conflict, driven from their homes by violence and terror. Children know no nations and no borders; those who survive will grow up to follow the lead of those who take them in. Do we show them love and acceptance? Or allow them to fend for themselves, vulnerable to guerrilla groups that will only teach them to perpetuate this cycle of violence? We have to be vigilant about letting bigotry and hatred creep into the mainstream or be rationalized under the guise of "protecting our people." If we accept blanket targeting towards Muslims, we can all be sure that other minority groups won't be far behind, whether it's by closing borders to other supposed "dangerous" groups or trampling their human rights in other ways. Muslims are our people. They are human beings with children, needs and dreams like the rest of us. Not all Muslims are terrorists, and by the way, not all terrorists are Muslims. Latinos are our people. They don't come to "steal jobs" _ they come seeking an opportunity to build a better life for themselves and for their children, which is what the U.S. has always prided itself on representing: opportunities. They are a huge part of the workforce that has contributed to making America the great country it is today African Americans are our people. After enduring centuries of oppression and the countless human atrocities that were committed against them, after fighting for civil rights, it's devastating that racial profiling is still happening and their civil liberties are still being threatened. I could go on naming groups ad infinitum, but the point is, we shouldn't be singling out aroups and differentiating themm by race, class or religion, because according to the Constitution, all of that is irrelevant to their rights as a citizen. Anybody who goes to the U.S. and chooses to raise that flag and uphold those principles is "our people." Thanks to social networks, we all have a platform to use our voice today. For every post l see with hateful language, I see others that lift my spirits and reassure me that we haven't totally lost our way. Lawyers in airports offering free counsel to refugees, New Yorkers banding together on the subway to erase neo-Nazi vandalism, doctors volunteering their time to give free advice to women that need it, and citizen activists marching for equal rights for all. Let's keep tipping the scales in favor of "liberty and justice for all," keep using our voices to lift up others and speak out for those whose voices have been stripped from them. I applaud all of you who have spoken out against the ban keep up the good fight and never back down. shakisabell: Shakira’s article from TIME http://time.com/4665295/shakira-donald-trump-ban/ Shakira is so eloquent.

I know its a long read but consider: CRUCIFIX NAIL NIPPLES: hadanelith I'll never not be amused by the fact that I can drop the words "crucifix nail nipples" into a conversation and some of you who have been with me since the livejournal days will join me in the flashbacks, screaming and crying all the way I require context. Because this is a very interesting start of a story, and now I need the rest of it. Could I get a link, or a summary, or something? Pretty please? All right buckle the fuck up kids, it's the year 2012 and I've just been handed what should be an easy editing gig by my senior editor. It's a vampire erotica story because one of the final Twilight movies is about to come out, and everything is vampires. Everything. I haven't edited a single thing in months which isn't about vampires. I am ready, I can do this. So l open the file and notice there's a typo in the title, which really should have been my first inkling that something horrendous was about to go down, but you see I'm not quite dead inside yet so I carry on, bushy tailed and bright eyed with my faith in humanity intact. It'll be dead by page 24, but I don't know that yet. I'm just editing one more vampire boner fest The MC is a girl who we'll call Sue. Sue is a Good GirlT, Sue is Not Like Other Girls TM, she is pale and awkward and a virgin and has somehow managed to find herself a Bad BoyTM for a boyfriend. We'll call him Dickhead Now Dickhead as previously stated is a bit of dick, he tries to pressure Sue into sex because he knows she is The One™ but he loves her really so it's okay. Except it's not okay because Sue is a Good Girl™ and holding out till marriage which he's fine with except he's got such a bad case of blue balls that one night walking home an attractive stranger lures him into an alley with the words hey stud" and he follows, dick out before she's even finished her sentence. Well turns out that was a mistake for Dickhead because she's a vampire, but not just any vampire, a Dick Biting Vampire. So what started out as a skeevy blow job behind a club that he'll feel bad about in the morning, turns into him being bitten on the dick and drained of his life essence and left for dead. Except DBV fucked up and now he's a vampire. Are you still with me? Good, cause it's about to get weirder Realizing he is now an abomination, Dickhead flees, becoming a creature of the night and feeding on animals rather than humans to repent for being such an asshole in life. Sue meanwhile is heartbroken, but carries on valiantly with her life and goes to bed each night crying for the loss of her One True LoveM who she would do anything to bring back. Well guess what Sue, Dickhead never really left youl He's been 'instinctively protecting her from rapists by hiding out on her roof and fighting hobos who try to get to her open window via the fire escape for months now. Because that's not fucking terrifying at all. Upon learning of his predicament and how it happened, Sue can do nothing but blame herself. Oh if only she'd let him touch her secret places, then perhaps all of this could be avoidedl Meanwhile Dickhead is having another dilemma of his own, realizing too late that his vampire powers have given him super senses and now he can smell her blood and he can't decide whether he wants to get with her or eat her. And I don't mean in the French sense. But he is strong! And over comes his base manly vampire instincts and neither rapes not kills her. Hurrah! And this is so romantic that Sue gives it up, but not before she launches into a theory about how in all fairy tales, True Love saves the day, so maybe her magical pure vagina that has never been touched by anyone not even her, can bring him back to life. So Dickhead being a dickhead agrees and rips her clothes off, but not before he takes one last moment to marvel at the beauty of her purity, because he will never again look on her again and know she is Pure If you've only vomited once by now, I applaud your resolve. So they hop on the good foot and do the nasty, except she is literally so pure in spirit, her flesh burns his. And I quote you from memory because these words are burned into my soul: "her breasts bit into his hands, like crucifix nail nipples tearing at his flesh, but he did not care because he loved her so and couldn't stop" This phrase haunts me. I dread that it will be the last thing I think about on my death bed and my last words will literally be "god fucking dammit" as I die, carrying that mental image with me into the afterlife. My own solace is in knowing that l inflicted it on other people too, like @ahzuri who is somehow still with me after all these years When the magic al burning sex fails to heal him and leaves her bruised, battered and broken with a dainty blue bells of bruises around her secret flower" (I am genuinely quoting this, I could never make something as horrendous as this up without being on acid) Dickhead leaves. Yeah. Off he fucks, leaving her to the mercy of the hobos at her window, and into the night to be the true monster he really is. But wait, there's more. Remember the dick biting vampire? Well turns out she has figured out she made him into a vampire and has also been stalking HIM and is totally jealous of Sue, so tries to kill her. But again Sues Purity saves her, because sex before marriage which was done out of True Love is not a sin, so she is still a spiritual virgin and I'll be honest, I started drinking heavily at this point and its all a bit of a blur A fight ensues some pages later after Dickhead returns, realizing the mistake he has made. And he rescues Sue from the Dick Biter, but not before he assaults Dick Biter, and calls her a slut for luring innocent men into alleys cuts her heart out by cutting her breasts off, at which point i screamed THAT'S NOT HOW YOU REACH THE HEART and my brain short circuited completely and I have no idea how it ends because I realized there was 30 pages left and my soul couldn't take it. I emailed the chief editor like ?????lIlll and the book was immediately pulled from the work line and the author dismissed from the publishing house. Turns out she was a friend of a friend and that was how she got the manuscript past our entry levels for requirement And that's the story of how an author sent me death threats for over a month because I stopped her shitty vampire porn from ever seeing the light of day. You're all fucking WELCOME Sorry to bring this searing back into your lives fam, but I feel it's worth noting that people are tagging this as an"ancient relic" of tumblr text posts and how they're so happy they see this every year and like guys, I hate to tell you this, but uh, this post is only six months old.

Me and Gerald turn around to wait on the porch when we heard " STFU Nicole im with my niqqas" I didn't know weather to 2 piece Jessie or to applaud his Ruthlessness. We were walking to Geralds house discussing how in his right mind can anyone talk back to thier mom like that. Fast forward we playing Zombies when Gerald's mom comes to his room, stands in front of the TV and starts bitching for no reason. It's not my controller, nor my house 🏡 .so I can't beam it at her. That's when I heard "Mom can't you see im slaying niqqas damn move"... This couldn't be life. Bruh no lie I swore this bitch Spawned a belt into her hand like she did the weapon set 3 cheat code from Gta vice city. My nigga went from Gerald to Kunta Kinte real quick.

I didn't feel comfortable playing anymore watching my niggas relive my painful ancestral past. I left. I didn't get a beating that day. We didn't get to turn the lights on in zombie mode either..

lunsfuhd: rootandrock: timeofthedecade: bigdaddyg-wil: this guy pulled out his dick in front of like 5 billion feminist protestors holy shit Some context for the idiots claiming the women are overreacting: This occurred at a Slut Walk. For those not familiar with it, the Slut Walk is basically a peaceful protest seeking to eliminate the rape apologism so prevalent in society. The basis is that no woman is “asking for it,” with “it” being rape. It’s not a feminist protest; it’s a human rights protest. Many of the protesters, as you can probably imagine, have dealt with sexual harassment or rape in their own lives. Many of them have structured their daily activities to avoid being raped. The gathering is supposed to be a place for them to feel empowered and able to recover in the company of those who understand what they’ve been through or who will not blame them. Nobody at a Slut Walk will tell a survivor that it’s her fault. They will not ask what she was wearing to provoke her attacker. Nobody will say she had too much to drink. Nobody will tell the men in the group that they are inherently rapists themselves, and nobody will tell a male survivor that his experience “wasn’t really rape.” Then, this fellow comes along. He sees this gathering of survivors and their supporters, and to him, it’s a joke. He sees feminazis. He sees girls who are taking “a bit of fun” too seriously. And what does he do? He exposes himself to this group of survivors and supporters - some of whom are, in fact, underage. He sexually harasses literally hundreds of women in one act. Aside from public indecency, there was cruel intent in his actions. He wanted to make them uncomfortable. He wanted to “put them in their place.” Other photos from this event show him flipping the protesters off and laughing at their anger. And there are still people defending his actions. There are those who still feel like these women were asking for itand that they deserved to be harassed for trying to claim they weren’t. There are those who feel that women should be taught a lesson this way, and they applaud this man’s actions. So no, he didn’t pull out his dick in front of feminist protesters. He harassed dozens - if not hundreds - of rape survivors. The reaction to his actions alone outline the purpose of the Slut Walk. For those of you still doubting whether what he did was wrong (and I do wonder if there’s something wrong with you, if you have doubts), let me give you an analogous situation. Imagine a gathering of black civil rights activists. Imagine Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, and all their colleagues gathered together to demonstrate that being black did not make them lesser people. That being black and living in the South did not mean they were “asking” to be the target of hate crimes. And at this gathering, a white man decides he should teach them a lesson by pointedly hanging a noose from the nearest tree and laughing at their anger. And other white men, laughing along with him, commend him for taking these activists down a peg. That’s what happened here. It’s not an “OMG, I can’t believe he did that!” moment. It’s an “OMG, there are people who think this is okay” moment. And the fact is, it’s not. It never will be. And that’s the take home message of this ridiculous rant I’ve written up. And this is why we still need feminism. His face though…: lunsfuhd: rootandrock: timeofthedecade: bigdaddyg-wil: this guy pulled out his dick in front of like 5 billion feminist protestors holy shit Some context for the idiots claiming the women are overreacting: This occurred at a Slut Walk.
