Tumblr has made triggers, which are an actual “triggered by mom actress getting raped in a show because it happened to my mom” thing, into a ridiculous “triggered by eyes” thing

Srsly people you need to stop with this shit. (And how do full screen videos ‘trigger’ anyone? Somebody tell me a legit way that a video randomly playing in full screen mode makes you have a panic attack?)

Today in labor history, March 30, 1930: Construction begins on the Hawks Nest Tunnel for a Union Carbide hydroelectric project. 3,000 mostly African-American migrant workers from the South were hired to complete the project and, to save time and money, were not provided with proper safety equipment to work cutting rock that had been discovered to have a high silica content. The official death toll from silicosis was 476, with estimates as high as 700 to 1,000. It is considered to be one of the worst industrial disasters in U.S. history.

Fucking Union Carbide. The most disguting company.

whenever a straight girl says she hates men everyone’s like “i know they’re all bastards aren’t they, they’re all just stupid bastards” but the second a queer girl says they hate men everyone’s all “well they’re not ALL like that, SOME of them are ok” and that bothers me so much

I wouldn’t say I’ve found that /: But everybody always defends the mens. Even creepy freaks who sniff you while you’re stacking shelves at work.

i really have no idea what this has to do with survival skills

Actually she has identifying which plants and berries are poisonous. She was quizzing herself. It’s foreshadowing because she later dies from eating poisonous berries; in the book, it’s seen as a foolish mistake, but because of this scene, it has implications of suicide. 

Holy shit

Well the Hunger Games just became even more devastating than it already was.

My wife and I have actually had very extensive conversations about Foxface. Specifically, my argument is that Foxface is in love with Katniss, or had another reason to want her to win, or survive.
Foxface excels in subtlety and observational awareness, she is always aware of where the other players in the game are, but when ever Katniss is in trouble, Foxface shows up to show her the way. She shows Katniss how to bypass the mines at the food cache. She shows Katniss that she can make it to the “feast” and back out safely.

But there’s a question. Why would Foxface steal a handful of berries from Peeta? She was hungry? But she could just harvest her own berries, without needing to potentially reveal herself. I find it hard to believe Foxface would steal 20 berries, when Peeta just showed her what the bush looks like. So the argument is, she wanted to kill herself, to save Katniss, and Peeta (since she knows two can survive). But why not just go eat her own berries? At any point during this whole thing?

My argument is that she ate Peeta’s berries for two reasons. One, she wanted to show Peeta that the berries were poisonous, because she didn’t want Katniss to lose him. And, Two. She wanted Katniss to know, or have the opportunity to deduce, that Foxface was in love with her. There’s any number of ways she could kill herself, but she did it publicly, revealing that she’s not only been following Katniss and Peeta, but to put the question in her mind: Why steal 20 berries from Peeta?

Why?

This is a fascinating theory.

THAT IS THE MOST HEARTBREAKING QUEER HEADCANON I HAVE EVER READ

HEADCANON ACCEPTED

I don’t like people constantly throwing ‘love’ into things like this, it just seems to detract from the other forms of relationship out there (friendship mostly, or admiration) but I do like the idea of Foxface eating the berries to show Peeta they were poisonous for other reasons.

Since she was clearly so intelligent, I like the idea that Foxface saw the signs of what Katniss and Peeta were doing to the capital and wanted to help it along somehow.

But mostly it was jsut because she wanted the fuck outta that hell hole. She knew she stood no chance against Katniss, Thresh and the two remaining Careers and probably very little chance against Peeta. She might have done it to save Peeta but more than likely she just wanted to be free. She took 20 berries because they raised an opportunity, it’s likely she just decided then and there to commit suicide. It probably wasn’t something she planned. She saw an opportunity and she took it.

Prays to every god out there that the new Sailor Moon reboot doesn’t get jumped on by a bunch of 40 year old men having a mid life crisis the way My Little Pony has.

I will not have my childhood shat on and turned into a wank fest by a bunch of dickhead white men. (Again).

the last 3 sequels to Pixar films (Cars 2, Monsters U, Finding Dory) have all followed the strangely specific formula of making the ‘sidekick’ of the first film the main character in the second

so now we have The Incredibles 2 coming out and if their track record is to be continued, I think we all know who is going to be the primary focus of the movie

the whole movie will be about him finding his super suit

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS

Aw man I hope so!

"My body, my choice" only makes sense when someone else’s life isn’t at stake.

Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a fully grown person, it would be ILLEGAL to FORCE me to donate blood if I didn’t want to.
See, we have this concept called “bodily autonomy.” It’s this….cultural notion that a person’s control over their own body is above all important and must not be infringed upon. 
Like, we can’t even take LIFE SAVING organs from CORPSES unless the person whose corpse it is gave consent before their death. Even corpses get bodily autonomy. 
To tell people that they MUST sacrifice their bodily autonomy for 9 months against their will in an incredibly expensive, invasive, difficult process to save what YOU view as another human life (a debatable claim in the early stages of pregnancy when the VAST majority of abortions are performed) is desperately unethical. You can’t even ask people to sacrifice bodily autonomy to give up organs they aren’t using anymore after they have died. 
You’re asking people who can become pregnant to accept less bodily autonomy than we grant to dead bodies. 

But, assuming the mother wasn’t raped, the choice to HAVE a baby and risk sacrificing their “bodily autonomy” is a choice that the mother made. YOu don’t have to have sex with someone. Cases of rape aside, it isn’t ethical to say abortion is justified. The unborn baby has rights, too. 

First point: Bodily autonomy can be preserved, even if another life is dependent on it. See again the example about the blood donation. 
And here’s another point: When you say that “rape is the exception” you betray something FUNDAMENTALLY BROKEN about your own argument.
Because a fetus produced from sexual assault is biologically NO DIFFERENT than a fetus produced from consensual sex. No difference at all.
If one is alive, so is the other. If one is a person, so is the other. If one has a soul, then so does the other. If one is a little blessing that happened for a reason and must be protected, then so is the other. 
When you say that “Rape is the exception” what you betray is this: It isn’t about a life. This isn’t about the little soul sitting inside some person’s womb, because if it was you wouldn’t care about HOW it got there, only that it is a little life that needs protecting.
When you say “rape is the exception” what you say is this: You are treating pregnancy as a punishment. You are PUNISHING people who have had CONSENSUAL SEX but don’t want to go through a pregnancy. People who DARED to have consensual sex without the goal of procreation in mind, and this is their “consequence.” 
And that is gross.
