what social justice is:
Archbishop Oscar Romero speaking out against human rights violations in his country of El Salvador during a civil war and advocating a policy of non-violence inspired by Martin Luther King Jr. and Ghandi, which got him ultimately assassinated
what social justice is not:
tattooing DIE CIS SCUM on yourself and telling people to check their privilege on tumblr
i hope rick santorum locks himself out of his house and has to call his wife and be really embarrassed while she drives home from work all the way across town to let his dumb ass back inside

i don’t know anyone who would choose it, but does that make it remotely okay to engage in? NO. YOU CANNOT HAVE SEX WITH CHILDREN. i am proud to oppress that.
So I ran out of Trout Stream. A complete and utter tragedy, I know. Angels were crying, the works. Trout Stream is one of my favorite tobaccos, so I can’t be out of it. It’s not acceptable. The last time I bought some was like 8 months ago, so I don’t even remember where on the internet I got it. I don’t smoke that much, perhaps once a day, but when I do I thoroughly enjoy it.
I just did a general search for Trout Stream pipe tobacco and ka-bang! a whole youtube world of pipe smokers was discovered.
It’s very silly, just guys sitting around smoking their pipes on video. Very silly. I watched like two dozen of them. They just ramble, visit with the void. They talk about their dogs, “the wife”, how they need to fix the porch, hunting. Truly random shit. They always mention what they’re smoking and what type of pipe they’re smoking it in. Sometimes, they’ll give a review, but really it’s just rambling. One guy, a delightful old man with a big ol’ gray beard, talks about the weather outside his house. In every video. I watched several of them. He just sits there puffing away and talking about how he woke up to two inches of snow. “Nary a word from the weather man either,” he said, reflectively.
Reflective is the only thing you can be while smoking a pipe, thus no matter what you do, you do it reflectively.
And it’s international, too. I watched a Swede puff away bemusedly on the corn cob pipe he laid down heavy bucks for to get from the U.S. He opened the package bemusedly, loaded it bemusedly, and smoked it bemusedly. He was very Swedish and very bemused. Another video had an English chap (all English men are chaps, I’ve decided) talking about a lovely bed-n-breakfast he discovered while on holiday in Shropshire.
“Is this a cult?” I wondered. “How do I join?”
show him you’re a real ice queen by locking yourself in a freezer
according to 15 year old female tumblr users
everyone else in the whole world: omg shoes, men with muscles, jersey shore, fashion, dieting, skinny models, drinking with friends, mtv, facebook
tumblr user: im the only person in the entire world who likes tattoos, pizza, dr who, all time low, thinks about sex and misses the 90s only me no one else im so unique just me im special only me no one else
yet all they reblog are skinny models, pictures of people drinking, fashion, men with muscles and jersey shore.
i don’t know why people waste their time with all these “walk for such and such” charity fundraisers.
you know what they SHOULD do?
…POOPING FOR A CAUSE.
just set up a bunch of toilets in a circle and sponser people to poop in public, while staring at other people. the best part is you’re pooping for curing cancer so it’s not like you can just choose NOT to poop.
don’t act like your above it. you know you wouldn’t be able to look away.
i’ll take my nobel peace prize now.
While I appreciate many of the accomplishments of Second Wave Feminists, I’m also willing to go to the mat to defend my use of and interest in makeup (feminism doesn’t get to limit the ways in which people can be women, no thanks).
There are, of course, challenges associated with every mode of presentation. If you’re a woman who dresses butch, you’re going to get people assuming a lot of things about you, things that might not be true. If you’re a woman who blends elements of “masculine” and “feminine” styles, you’re going to take crap from both sides saying you’re doing it wrong.
And if you present as femme, people aren’t going to take you seriously. From the ever-pervasive jokes about lipstick lesbians to theories that teenaged girls do worse in school because they are thinking about makeup, the commonly accepted idea seems to be that femme skills are worse than worthless. Useless. Empty-headed. And that’s not even going into the abuse that gets heaped on men who enjoy femme presentation.” —Marianne Kirby (@ xoJane)

like at some point the engineers came to karp and were like “hey, we need a name for the place where we put all the themes, can we just call it the theme page or something”
and karp was like
