when straight guys ask how lesbian sex works i feel really bad for their girlfriends because if you dont understand how to have sex with a girl in any way other than repeatedly putting your dick in her you are having some really bad sex
I want to reblog this 100 times but I’ll just do it once
“By now most members of the Comic-Con and cosplay community are likely aware that early Sunday morning a female cosplayer was found unconscious at the 333 West Harbor Drive Marriott Marquis and Marina hotel. It was the girl’s first visit to Con, and her seventeenth birthday. We spoke to a Harbor Police Sergeant who asks that anyone with information reach out by e-mailing email@example.com.”

“We tortured some folks.”—President Barack Obama, talking about United States in the immediate aftermath of 9/11. He was commenting on a Senate investigation on CIA interrogation techniques. (via officialssay)
"Ginsburg’s comments inspired comical levels of umbrage-taking on The Five on Fox News, where Andrea Tantaros worked herself into full-blown “misandry!” mode. ‘Isn’t she sort of saying, ‘Keep men away from this court?” she complained. ‘I get it. she’s a fan of birth control, but she is an enemy to the Bill of Rights.’”
so one of the bonuses of having a non-student salary again is that i can reasonably donate to organizations again. but now i feel so overwhelmed by the problems in the world i can’t really figure out where to start. where do you donate money - or where would you donate money if you had any to donate? i’m interested in how folks think about local vs national donations and focus areas. is it important to you to get news updates and feedback, or even participate in organizational decision-making, or do you prefer to write the check and forget about it? any thoughts welcome! ?
So I always focus on reproductive justice, and I support my local chapters of PP and NARAL.
I also like to support cultural opportunities in my area—museum memberships, arts festivals—because I want to live in a world where art and culture are valued, and the easiest way I can do that is to be an everyday patron.
But here’s where I shifted my giving after reading the staggering research:
This country’s food distribution systems are tremendously out of whack. 49 million of our 300 million citizens live in food-insecure homes. The issue is NOT, however, one of shortage; we actually have a food surplus.
Donating a couple of cans of corn to a food drive is a nice gesture, but your local church or homeless shelter can only do so much. They may focus only on a specific area, and may only be able to operate using the 1:1 resources you provide.
Food banks are set up to handle large intake of resources, cover broad systems of distribution, and are eligible to purchase surplus food in bulk at tremendous discounts.
Dollar for dollar, your cash donation to a food bank is able to feed 20 TIMES MORE FAMILIES than your donation of actual food to a canned food drive.
So I set up a $15/month autopay to my wonderful local bank, Philabundance. I barely feel the impact of the gift when I’m paying my bills at the end of the month, and I know it empowers Philabundance to feed a family of four for a week or two.
(A note from a professional fundraiser: please consider doing it this way. Most large nonprofits have what they call “recurring” or “sustainer” giving options, which means that your credit card or bank account will be charged an amount you choose at regular intervals (weekly, monthly, quarterly) that you also choose. You can cancel or alter your giving levels at any time. This is great for you — because $15/month sounds way easier than a $180 gift for the year right now — and it also means the nonprofit spends less time and money soliciting and then processing your gift, which means more of your money actually goes to the thing you’re trying to support.)
Here’s a link to an interview with a personal hero, the fabulous Katherina Rosqueta of the Center for High Impact Philanthropy, in which she argues this very point. The Center for High Impact Philanthropy is also a great way to research the best ways to make a difference in any field that is important to you.
Hope this helps! Love, your friendly neighborhood philanthropoid.
