Do not test Reza Aslan.

We must train and retain our ability to listen and process critically.

Nobody told me that @RezaAslan knew how to read.

(Not “read” as in “books”, but “read as in “reveal your scalp to the world”.)

Because homie read Bill Maher, Don Lemon, Alisyn Camerota, Benjamin Netanyahu, and just about everyone else for points.

Hair all over the damn floor like it was a barbershop and nobody had a broom.

He got ALL his kee-kees in.

Watch.

THAT WAS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL, MOST ARTICULATE TAKEDOWNS IN THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF BULLSHIT DEBUNKING 

158,720 notes

We’re so bad at sex and then we wonder why women aren’t like, really aggressive about sex. We think it’s cause they don’t have as much desire as we do. That’s how stupid men are, that we think ‘they’re just weird, women are like fucked up in the head cause they don’t wanna just fuck all the time. If I was a women, I’d just fuck everybody. Why don’t they wanna fuck all the time? I do.’ Of course you do, cause when you fuck, you get to fuck a woman! When she fucks, she has to fuck a guy! Wildly different experiences. For a man, 100% of the time, it’s the greatest thing that ever happened in his entire life. For a woman, about 40% of the time, when she’s being fucked by a guy, she’s thinking ‘I’ll get over this in a week. It’s not the worst thing. I’m not gonna cry this time.’

“Another thing that proves how bad men are at sex is that after sex, you’re looking at two very different people. The man just wants to lay there, be cool and the woman wants to cuddle… ‘Why is she so NEEDY?’ She’s not needy you idiot, she’s horny, because you did nothing for her. YOU DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. HER PUSSY IS ON FIRE BECAUSE IT’S GONE UNFUCKED COMPLETELY. Of course you’re fine, you climbed on and went ‘KFHGSKG’ and rolled off. And she’s on you because she’s like ‘WH-at SOMETHING ELSE HAS TO HAPPEN, THIS IS BULLSHIT!!’ If you fuck a woman well, she will LEAVE YOU ALONE. ‘Thanks a lot buddy, zzzzz.’

Oh, Louis CK, advocate for the female orgasm. (via moscowisburning)

#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.

That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.

This is why honey is not vegan.

The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.

literally read anything about the history of sugarcane and the cuban sugar industry if you think sugar is or ever has been more ethical than honey

Interrotte Speranze

by L’Arpegiatta (Christina Pluhar)

Disappointed hopes, eternal faith,
Flame and powerful arrows in a sensitive heart,
Fierce passion nourished with nothing but sighs,
And hiding its pain when it sees others.

Following the wandering and fugitive footprints,
Of the feet that are deliberately directed away.,
By scattering the seed, losing both fruit and flower,
And languishing after the hoped-for reward.

Letting a single glance rule one’s thoughts,
And by a chaste act of will, submerging desire
And wasting all one’s inner light in weeping —

Cruel lady, these are what I send to you by the armful:
Harsh and bitter torments, cruel lady;
These will be your trophies and my funeral pyre.

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
