America, Arguing, and Ass: kayla renee Follow @kaybaeparker Long story short, I got my racist Professor fired mid semester after she tried to sabotage me.

If you read one thing today, make it this. kayla renee @kaybaeparker Long story short, I got my racist Professor fired mid semester after she tried to sabotage me. Then I wrote about it medium.com/@kaybaeparker/ RETWEETS LIKES 719 1,303 princessnijireiki: corvussy: saturnineaqua: ghettablasta: Kayla Renee Parker shared her story of how she managed to expose her racist teacher who appeared to be a wolf in sheep’s clothing. “She wears a safety pin so everyone knows she’s an ally for minorities. Her cover photo has a Black power fist. She regularly discusses her love for the Obamas, the Black Lives Matter Movement, and her admonishment for this current administration.” However, it wasn’t enough to hide her racism.  It all started with a simple question from a test. The question stated,  “Historical research on African-American families during slavery shows that: A) Family ties weren’t important in African cultures where the slaves ancestors originated; consequently, family bonds were never strong among slaves. B) Two-parent families were extremely rare during the slave period. C) Black family bonds were destroyed by the abuses of slave owners, who regularly sold off family members to other slave owners. D) Most slave families were headed by two parents. So, obviously, Kayla chose C. And it was incorrect. According to the teacher, the right answer was D. The argument started when Kayla wrote her an email and respectfully provided the professor the evidence, even directly from their textbook. “However, my Professor continued to argue that family bonds were not destroyed and that 2/3 of slave families were headed by two parents.” The teacher cited Herbert Gutman, sociologist, who died in 1985 and surely took part in the whitewashing of Black history. When they met to discuss the subject in person the professor gave Kayla books to read adding such statements as, “This book would be good for you to read. I believe it’s $6 so I could buy it for you if you’d like.” The stated that she spent her whole life fighting for minorities and something like “I’ve got Black friends.”  When the girl was proving her opinion, she heard more comments as, “You’re talking to someone who has spent their entire life fighting for people of diversity and marched with my Black brothers and sisters.” As the result, the teacher asked Kayla to lecture the class on the topic and that was her fatal mistake. Kayla took all her courage and made a presentation on the topic she was passionate about. She defended Black people and Black history. Here’s her presentation. That was the point where the story should end, but NO. The professor obviously forgot about privacy settings on Facebook and posted offensive comments about Kayla. The professor’s last words to Kayla were: This time The University of Tennessee stood up for the student. In July the teacher officially retiring from the university. This is fucking insane. The last paragraph of kaya’s story is everything: To my Professor, I forgive you for robbing me of my focus last semester. I forgive you for calling my Father, a graduate of Yale Medical School, “educationally challenged.” I even forgive you for threatening me. However, I do not forgive you for being willfully ignorant to the subjects you teach students. I also do not forgive you for claiming to be an ally. An ally is so much more than wearing a safety pin. It also requires that you listen to the needs of Black people and respect the issues that we raise. When a Black student raises a concern over the way you are portraying her history, referring to all you’ve done for Black people doesn’t change the fact that you’re portraying slavery as some kind of slavery lite. As an educator and as an ally, you are not expected to know everything but this does not abdicate you from the responsibility of always continuing to learn- even from your students. Additionally, if you wanted to actually help Black men and women, you’d value our words. Unfortunately, your actions simply mirror how America values Black people in today’s society. This Black girl is a hero who overcame her fear and faced her teacher defending Black people and Black history.  #StayWoke #BlackPride #StopRacists this is why…white women…cant teach black people, or people of color as a whole. White supremacy has a long history of setting up white women to destroy people of color namely black and native people) via education.  I was going through my old likes and decided to see if there was any updates in this story. The professor was arrested for assaulting Kayla in a grocery store but the charges were dismissed by a judge on the condition Morelock has no further contact with Kayla I couldn’t find any more recent news on Kayla than what was said in the second link, but I sincerely hope she wasn’t in any way negatively impacted because of the situation with Morelock, especially since the second link says there were multiple other faculty members that defended Morelock… this is why I do not and never will like white educators. Morelock also continues to post about Kayla on her public Facebook, but (probably for ongoing legal reasons) still can’t or won’t name her directly. You can’t underestimate people’s hatefulness the depth of their vindictive and petty fixations out here— even especially people in a position of power over you with the potential to harm you, “ally” or no. And Kayla seems to be doing well! Her FB page says she became a Director at Amnesty International, and has just moved forward to become a Canvass Director for Care.org. Folks will try to block your blessings and drag you down to their hater-ass level in the mud, but you gotta fight keep on shining. ☀️

This is perfect! Well said! The thing is, while I’m sure you could scrape up a few people who’d be willing to just float by on a guaranteed minimum income? For most people the choice to work would be a no-brainer. “Hmmm. I can get by on 33k a year, or I can take that part time job and make 48k… enough to move to a better apartment, maybe take the family on vacation. Sold.” Hell, most people would want to work simply because it gives one a sense of dignity and something to do with one’s time. (Speaking as someone who’s been unemployed, on extended sick leave, etc. in her time, the boredom and sense of isolation that comes with not having a job is almost as bad as the humiliation of having to depend on other people for one’s survival.) And with this system, part-time jobs and “non-skilled” jobs would be much more readily available because nobody would need to work two or three jobs just to stay afloat! Which would ALSO mean that employers and customers couldn’t shamelessly exploit employees the way they can today, because if losing a job weren’t necessarily a financial disaster, more people would be willing to walk out on jobs where they weren’t being treated with dignity. And if this also applies to students (and it should) then student loans would become much less of a problem, and fewer people would flunk out of school because of having to juggle studies and work. Far fewer people would be forced to stay with abusive partners, parents or roommates because they couldn’t afford to move out. And the thing is, all those people who suddenly had money? They’d be spending it. They’d be getting all the stuff they can’t afford now - new clothes, books, toys, locally-produced food, car repairs - and with each purchase money would flow BACK to the government, because VAT, also income tax. The unemployed and/or disabled wouldn’t need special support any more - which would also mean the government could fire however many admins who are currently engaged in humiliating - *cough* making sure those people aren’t getting money they don’t deserve.

And I’m no legal scholar, but I somehow imagine less financial desperation would lead to less petty crime, and hence less need for police and security everywhere? TL;DR Doomie thinks this is a good idea, laughs at those who protest. reblogging for more top commentary They tried something like this out in Canada as a sort of social experiment, called Mincome. What they found was that, on the whole, people continued to work about as much as they did before. Only new mothers and teenagers worked substantially less hours.  But wait, there’s more. Because parents were spending just a little more time at home and involved with their families, test scores increased. Because teens didn’t have to work to support their families, drop-out rates decreased. Crime rates, hospital visits, psychiatric hospitalizations and domestic abuse rates all dropped, as well. More adults pursued higher education. Those who continued to work reported more job flexibility and more opportunity to choose employment they preferred. Basically, now you can go prove to your asshole family members that society won’t collapse without poor people for you to feel better than. The picture is awesome, but read the commentary, that’s what I’m reblogging for.

With debt levels spiraling out of control as they are, america might have to do this in the near future, in order to prevent economic collapse from people just not having money to spend. The only problem i forsee with this is that, in order to get the money to distribute, taxes on rich people would have to increase by a lot, and if taxes raise too high, they just fucking move to another country to avoid paying them. If there was a way to prevent this, or if the whole world implemented a standard like this at the same time thereby removing the incentive to flee tax hikes, then this would absolutely work out great

Alive, Be Like, and Best Friend: June 18, 2013 Chelsey Lynn lol jordan was giving out photos too now she deleted them all so only i have them im gonna delete them all at some point in the near future. 7:21 PM 7:21 PM 7:22 PM 7:22 PM Hannah Brown yeah I mean 7:22 PM Chelsey Lynn just ...getting into a relationship with a guy now kinda so..it'll probably happen within the next few months 7:22 PM Hannah Brown if you have no use for them, why keep them anyway? it's not like you're going to be posting them 7:22 PM 7:22 PM Chelsey Lynn honestly to look at them 7:22 PM 7:22 PM gaymommy: gaymommy: I just wanted to bring this little creep to everyone’s attention. I know Hannah posted about this before a billion times, but I have a way bigger follower base and I feel like I can reach more people this way and maybe we can get this little weirdo off of tumblr for good. . The girl what runs brendonurievines is a completely insane girl named Chelsey (i think she went under another name but idk what it is.) She used to/probably still does make fake profiles of Brendon Urie’s (Panic! At The Disco’s vocalist) family and friends, along with his wife’s family. She does this so she can add the two and stalk them and get personal information out of them about the band members. The photo shown above is just a snippet of the creepy things she’s said to Hannah about the pictures she stole from the Urie family’s personal facebooks. Here’s all the information in Hannah’s words (dallonsmiles) There is a 24 year old girl in Toronto who was (and actually still is very much) stalking the band and running a blog called ipanickedatthedisco that she would post rare, never-before-seen pictures as well as private info on for months. Then around the beginning of Feb. she showed me all this shit she had and told me all this stuff… about her hacking into Sarah’s private Facebook, by making up a fake profile of one of her high school friends, and stealing all Sarah’s pictures off it.. as well as gaining access to Brendon’s brothers and sisters and parents Facebooks through similar means (fake accounts) and stealing all the pictures of Brendon or Brendon and Sarah or anything else related off them. She showed me folders and folders and folders of photos she got off those Facebooks as well as buttloads of private posts and information, such as pages and pages of Brendon’s family members’ home addresses (WTF?!?!) and showed me Brendon and Sarah’s house and car and legal documentation on Brendon and Dallon and Breezy and Brendon’s parents and Sarah’s and just EVERYTHING. She literally has EVERYTHING you could possibly get online about these people. So then I outed her, like I was just going to sit there and be like “OH COOL”?? Come on! So I posted about it here on Tumblr and told Sarah about it on Twitter and Sarah responded privately and gave me her email address so I could tell her more and give her all the info, and shit completely blew up in the fandom. She password protected the ipanickedatthedisco blog for about a month hoping things would calm down, as MANY were calling for her to delete the blog (reporting it to tumblr as well) and leave Tumblr and the fanbase altogether (cuz who wants someone like that in their fanbase? seriously?) but when she reopened the blog, she tried to act like nothing happened and posted some disclaimers on it saying things like “if you have a problem with what I do or the way I gain info and pictures, you can unfollow” like that’s acceptable? So anyway, we all continued to post about her deleting it and a SHIT load of people came forward to me privately about other extremely heinous things she’d done while pretending to be Brendon on Facebook and all kinds of other shit and I got a particularly disgusting piece of information that I could very easily have (and still could, I don’t know why she thinks she can just continue this way with the information I have) gone to an internet crimes lawyer about, and was actually very seriously planning to. I told her that, because I really didn’t want to do it and I believed she was genuinely a good person who’d just gotten in too deep, so she finally shut down the blog and the others she knew I knew about. I started talking to her on Skype and stuff and offering her support as a friend, because she was telling me she was so depressed and suicidal because she’d gotten in so deep and felt terrible and told me she’d unfollowed all the Panic! twitters, instagrams, everything and was taking a step back and going to therapy and getting herself sorted out… and I believed her, because I didn’t believe someone could be so awful to pray on my sympathies and lie that much. But I was wrong. Just a week or so after that conversation, she started posting every day, multiple times a day, on her personal blog (which is clynnk now, btw everyone) about PATD and started posting things immediately after they’d been shared on Facebook or twitter, as well as pictures no one had seen before that were showing up on Linda or Sarah’s Facebooks (she also runs/ran the fuckyeahlindaignarro blog, idk if it’s still up) before anyone else had seen them… meaning she was actively stalking these pages to check for new things. So I messaged her about it saying you know, hey I thought you told me you were taking a step back and distancing yourself to try and get better? And she had the audacity to tell me she “had an addiction” and “everyone with addictions have relapses”…. as if BEING OBSESSED WITH A BAND IS AN ADDICTION. I’m sorry, but that REALLY pissed be off, because plenty of people deal with REAL addiction, including people I’m very close to and Spencer Smith himself, so that’s incredibly insulting. So after that I tried to just ignore it until I saw the brendonurievines blog pop up and start posting every day, several times a day… and I knew it was her. I brought it up and she admitted it was her. Then I noticed she had created this sandburie blog that was made up to seem as if it was actually being run by Brendon and/or Sarah, no indication whatsoever anywhere that it was a fan blog, and it in fact says “Share our love” on it… as if it’s supposed to look like it’s their blog. Anyway, I saw never-before-seen photos of Sarah popping up on there, and called her out on it and she immediately deleted them so no one else would see or I guess believe me, idk what she was trying to do there. She had emailed Sarah (by obtaining her private email address via her Facebook that she shouldn’t have ever had access to) to apologize for everything, which is one of the things that makes me the angriest. She gave a completely insincere and bullshit apology to one of the sweetest people alive when she actually had no plans of stopping the stalking and never did stop.  Sarah tweeted a link to a fake Sarah Facebook a month or so ago and asked people to report it because the person was trying to add her family and friends on it to get more photos… that was Chelsey. She deleted the FB after Sarah tweeted about it. I’m not sure about the other members of Brendon’s family she had created fake accounts for, I haven’t checked recently to see if they’re still up… but this girl is positively insane. I wish so fucking badly I could somehow let EVERYONE in the fanbase know about this girl and what she’s done and that she runs these blogs, because the fact that she’s getting followers and likes and reblogs is giving her more and more strength and motivation to do more of what she’s doing.  She also hacked Shane Valdes (Brendon’s best friend) Facebook last year and Sarah confirmed this, telling me he’d lost access to his Facebook for a few months. During that time, Chelsey somehow managed to get Ryan Ross’s phone number and has been texting him AS BRENDON URIE ever since. I don’t think it’s still going on, I sure HOPE not, I hope Ryan wouldn’t be that naïve. But while she did that, she gorged incredibly deep and personal information out of Ryan about his family, his childhood, his life, and his relationship with Brendon and the band as a whole. It sickens me to my core that she lied to Ryan, making him think he was going to get to record a song with Brendon when it wasn’t even Brendon at all. So yeah. This girl is completely crazy and she needs to be stopped. These are the blogs that she runs that we know of. brendonurievines  sandburie fuckyeahlindaignarro clynnk Please avoid this girl, spread the word, even report her if you have to. This invasion of privacy on the boys and their families is beyond anything normal and sane and it needs to stop. Reblog and signal boost this, please.

Angry Birds, Bad, and Bored: How to Study Likea Harvard Student Taken from Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld, daughter of the Tiger Mother 1. Choose classes that interest you. That way studying doesn't feel like slave labor. If you don't want to learn, then I can't 2. Make some friends. See steps 12, 13, General Principles 3. Study less, but study better 4. Avoid Autopilot Brain at all costs. 5. Vague is bad. Vague is a waste of your time 6. Write it down. 7 Suck it up, buckle down, get it done. Plan of Attack Phase I: Class 8. Show up. Everything will make a lot more sense that way, and you will save yourself a lot of time in the long run. 9. Take notes by hand. I don't know the science behind it, but doing anything by hand is a way of carving it into your memory. Also, if you get bored you will doodle, which is still a thousand times better than ending up on stumbleupon or something. Phase II: Study Time 10. Get out of the library. The sheer fact of being in a library doesn't fill you with knowledge. Eight hours of Facebooking in the library is still eight hours of Facebooking. Also, people who bring food and blankets to the library and just stay there during finals week start to smell weird. Go home and bathe. You can quiz yourself while you wash your hair 11. Do a little every day, but don't let it be your whole day. "This afternoon, I will 0 a problem set. Then, I will watch an episode of South Park and go to the gym" ALWAYS BEATS "Starting right now, I am going to read as much as I possibly can...oh wow, now it's midnight, I'm on page five, and my room reeks of ramen 12. Give yourself incentive. There's function worse abyss study time. If you know you're going out in six hours, you're more likely to get something done. 13. Allow friends to confiscate your phone when they catch you playing Angry Birds. Oh and if you think you need a break, you probably don't. Phase 14. Stop highlighting. Underlining is supposed to keep you focused, but it's actually a one-way ticket to Autopilot Brain. You zone out, look down, and suddenly you have five pages of neon green that you don't remember reading Write notes in the margins instead. 15. Do all your own work. You get nothing out of copying a problem set. It's also shady. 16. Read as much as you can. No way around it. Stop trying to cheat with Sparknotes. 17. Be a smart reader, not a robot (lol) Ask yourself: What is the author trying to prove? What is the logical progression of the argument? You can reading the introduction and conclusion of every chapter. Then, pick any two examples/anecdotes and commit them to memory (write them down). They will help you reconstruct the author's argument later on. 18. Don't read everything, but understand everything that you read Better to have a deep understanding of a limited amount of material, than to have a vague understanding of an entire course. Once again: Vague is bad. Vague is a waste of your time 19. Bullet points. For essays, Phase IV: Reading Period (Review Week) 20. Once again: do not move into the library. Eat, sleep, and bathe 21. If you don't understand it, it will definitely be on the exam. Solution tex 22. Do all the practice problems. This one is totally tiger mom are of rote learning. Newsflash: even at great intellectual bastions like Harvard, you will be names and dates. To memorize effectively: stop reading your list over and over again. It doesn't work. Say it out loud, write it down. Remember how you made friends? Have them quiz you, then return the favor 24. Again with the friends: ask them to listen while you explain a difficult concept to them. This forces you to articulate your understanding. Remember, vague is bad. 25. Go for the big picture. Try to figure out where a specific concept fits into the course as a whole. This will help you tap into Big Themes- every class has Big Themes - which will streamline what you need to know. You can learn a million facts, but until you understand how they fit together, you're missing the point. V: Exam Day 26. Crush exam. Get A. e prep-ademic How to study better (long)

Banks are currently turning away qualified black homebuyers from affluent white neighborhoods. Banks are still denying home loans to black people with excellent credit when we try to buy in mostly white neighborhoods. Video: https://youtu.be/AqaCsJXUehQ It’s organized, institutional racism. Banks will give huge home loans to poorly qualified white people to gentrify historically black neighborhoods, but not the other way around.

She’d had a fear of the unemployed lollygagging about ever since she was a child and her mother told her to be afraid of the unemployed lollygagging about. “You think people should get paid for nothing? I work hard for my money!” “But who will serve me?” grumbled Marty McMoneybags. “Who will make me feel important? Who will do my laundry and cook my food and stand in front of me wearing a plastic smile while I take out all my stress—because I do have a lot of stress, you know, being this rich is stressful—on them?” He paused and straightened out the piles of hundred dollar bills on the desk in front of him, then raised his two watery, outraged eyes up to the Heavens. “Lord, if there are no poor people, how will I know that I’m rich??” I laughed. This is perfect! Well said! The thing is, while I’m sure you could scrape up a few people who’d be willing to just float by on a guaranteed minimum income? For most people the choice to work would be a no-brainer. “Hmmm. I can get by on 33k a year, or I can take that part time job and make 48k… enough to move to a better apartment, maybe take the family on vacation. Sold.” Hell, most people would want to work simply because it gives one a sense of dignity and something to do with one’s time. (Speaking as someone who’s been unemployed, on extended sick leave, etc. in her time, the boredom and sense of isolation that comes with not having a job is almost as bad as the humiliation of having to depend on other people for one’s survival.) And with this system, part-time jobs and “non-skilled” jobs would be much more readily available because nobody would need to work two or three jobs just to stay afloat! Which would ALSO mean that employers and customers couldn’t shamelessly exploit employees the way they can today, because if losing a job weren’t necessarily a financial disaster, more people would be willing to walk out on jobs where they weren’t being treated with dignity. And if this also applies to students (and it should) then student loans would become much less of a problem, and fewer people would flunk out of school because of having to juggle studies and work. Far fewer people would be forced to stay with abusive partners, parents or roommates because they couldn’t afford to move out. And the thing is, all those people who suddenly had money? They’d be spending it. They’d be getting all the stuff they can’t afford now - new clothes, books, toys, locally-produced food, car repairs - and with each purchase money would flow BACK to the government, because VAT, also income tax. The unemployed and/or disabled wouldn’t need special support any more - which would also mean the government could fire however many admins who are currently engaged in humiliating - *cough* making sure those people aren’t getting money they don’t deserve. Same for medical benefits and pensions. And I’m no legal scholar, but I somehow imagine less financial desperation would lead to less petty crime, and hence less need for police and security everywhere? TL;DR Doomie thinks this is a good idea, laughs at those who protest. reblogging for more top commentary They tried something like this out in Canada as a sort of social experiment, called Mincome. What they found was that, on the whole, people continued to work about as much as they did before. Only new mothers and teenagers worked substantially less hours.  But wait, there’s more. Because parents were spending just a little more time at home and involved with their families, test scores increased. Because teens didn’t have to work to support their families, drop-out rates decreased. Crime rates, hospital visits, psychiatric hospitalizations and domestic abuse rates all dropped, as well. More adults pursued higher education. Those who continued to work reported more job flexibility and more opportunity to choose employment they preferred. Basically, now you can go prove to your asshole family members that society won’t collapse without poor people for you to feel better than. *muffled sound of conservatives imploding in the distance*

God, Love, and Donuts: This legitimately upsets me. Y'see, now, y'see, I'm looking at this, thinking, squares fit together better than circles, so, say, if you wanted a box of donuts, a full box, you could probably fit more square donuts in than circle donuts if the circumference of the circle touched the each of the corners of the square donut. So you might end up with more donuts But then I also think.. Does the square or round donut have a greater donut volume? Is the number of donuts better than the entire donut mass as a whole? Hrm HRM A round donut with radius R1 occupies the same space as a square donut with side 2R1. If the center circle of a round donut has a radius R2 and the hole of a square donut has a side 2R2, then the area of a round donut is nR12 nr22. The area of a square donut would be then 4R12 4R22. This doesn't say much, but in general and throwing numbers, a full box of square donuts has more donut per donut than a full box of round donuts The interesting thing is knowing exactly how much more donut per donut we have. Assuming first a small center hole (R2R1/4) and replacing in the proper expressions, we have a 27,6% more donut in the square one (Round: 15nR12/16 2,94R12, square: 15R12/4 3,75R12). Now, assuming a large center hole (R2 3R1/4) we have a 27,796 more donut in the square one (Round: 7nR12/16 1,37R12, square : 7R12/4 1,75R12). This tells us that, approximately, we'll have a 27% bigger donut if it's square than if it's round tl,dr: square donuts have a 27% more donut per donut in the same space as a round one. god i love this site VIA THEMETAPICTURE.COM Important donut science

Anaconda, Bailey Jay, and Food: How smart are you?.....A lady walks in the store and steals $100 bill from the register without the owners knowledge. She comes back 5 mins later and buys $70 worth of goods with the $100 bill. The owner gives her $30 in change, how much did the owner lose???? A. $30 B。$70 C. $100 D. $130 E. $170 F. $200 DO NOT OVER THINK IT! Again do not over think it... Yes. With the same 100. Cause it's already missing. Then your till thinks u took in another 100. But u gace 30 back. Trust me... t's 130 then. They sent me to a class to learn how to steal. Lol Like Reply 18 hrs But what it the stores net loss? When all is said and done they are out the $70 worth of food, and the $30 cash, for a total of $100. The store ultimately got the $100 bill bachk Like Reply 3 hrs Nope cause the 100 was taken out of thw drawer. So that makes them automatically 100 short b4 the theif even shops Like Reply 1 hr But after she leaves they have the $100 back. She doesnt have it anymore Like Reply 1 hr Doesn't matter. It's already gone. So there's 100 n then she uses the 100 n gets the 30 back. But 70 of items. So the person drawer is gonna b 130 short. N the store as a whole is 200 short as a whole in the end Like Reply 1 hr Lol no Say you have a $100, $20 and $10 bill, for a total of $130 cash. Now let's also say you are selling an item for $70. Between the cash and the item you are in possession of $200 worth of stuff She steals the $100 bill, so now all you have is See More Like Reply 1 hr 200. Point blank. 100 was rang threw the pos n then another 100 which is still missing. Come to my work n i can show u how as in play money like teaching a 2 yr old. I have been a sm for years. Thats how it works on a corp world Like Reply 9 mins She spent the $100 she stole to get the $70 item and S30 cash. After that transaction the store has the original $100 she stole and she no longer has it at that point. All she has walking out that she didn't have walking in is the $70 item and $30 cash... See More Like Reply 5 mins She walks put with only 100. The cashier is out 130. The store is out 200 Like Reply 3 mins N the register thinks they took in 200 because they took the 100 what was already rang in. Then rang it again n doesn't have the other 100. So that means a fired employee Like Reply 2 mins How can you think that is possible? It is basic algebra When you add to one side it is because an equal number was subtracted on the other side. How can she walk out of the store $100 richer because of her actions, yet the store is somehow $200 poorer because of her actions? Like Reply Just now Lmao.. Hope u never have to run a store. Ask another person cause i am done dealing with u. I have described it over n over Like Reply Just now The store took in that $100 from someone else, sure But at the end of the day the store still has that $100 but is short ofa $70 item and $30 cash Like Reply Just now memehumor: They gave a few answers, but never C

Boner, Cute, and DeLorean: sadiene: mentalgrunge daftpunk-delorean: dangerouslyasexual: naamahdarling: microbewrangler: princess-fluffybutt: sassyhiddles grim missingdinosaur: methroid: do actors get boners while making sex scenes this is one of the things i've wondered my whole life Idk if you actually care for the answer, but they have to put their dicks in little sleeves that attach to the leg so if they get a boner it just get held down. that sounds like a garment that should be sold everywhere and considered polite if not mandatory to wear, like bras Omg I can't As a guy I second this. If I have to wear a titty sling because there might be an event where it becomes chilly and my nip noops become visible through my shirt, people who have a peenor should be expected to wear a peenor sling in case there is an event where a gentle breeze occurs and their p becomes erect. eenor I kind of feel like if we're gonna do that we should go all-out and they should be IMPOSSIBLE to size, VERY expensive, flimsy, and made of uncomfortable, itchy materials. And the little ones should have cute designs but the big ones only come in white,black, and tar and there should be a company that sells them called Victor's Secret, that has uncomfortably large, close-up photos of enormously-endowed male "angels" stuffed into their gorgeous little pouches spread all over every mall and TV channel, which changes societal expectations on penis size as a whole, so that men who don't have incredibly large penises feel impossibly inadequate and feel compelled to make up for it by spending a fortune on overpriced penis pouches as a way of compensating. Then Victor's Secret should be sure not to actually carry any of these garments in the sizes that they advertise, so that only modestly-endowed men have the privilege of being seen in the shop, which is the type of place that simultaneously clamors for huge dicks, but refuses to cater to them in any way, leaving everyone involved vaguely uncomfortable and slightly ashamed.
