"… I was at the gym when the [Palin] news broke, hence the late post. And, of course, the news was juxtaposed by the untimely death of Steve Jobs. Leonard Cohen once said of America that it was “the cradle of the best and the worst”. Today, we lost one of the very best in American history, a reticent genius and entrepreneur, an inspiration for countless of us who has changed the very fabric of our lives. And we also saw the end of the road for one of the very worst: a nasty, callow, delusional, vicious know-nothing, brewed in resentment, and whose accomplishments could fit on a postage stamp. It’s a fitting comparison: achievement versus resentment, creativity versus narcissism, hope versus fear. I know which one will get the bigger headlines tomorrow. And there is some comfort in knowing it will pain her."

You know something disgusting?

I went to the pharmacy today to pick up my new prescription. Finally, a combination of medications seems to be working for me. 

The total, for ONE month’s worth of ONE prescription? $685. That’s utterly disgusting. For one thing, you can’t put a fucking price on health (mental OR physical, thank you). For another, how the fuck is anyone supposed to afford that? I mean, I’m lucky that a) my health insurance through work covered most of it and b) that there’s a low-income patient coupon card that took care of the rest (and might cover some refills in the future, thank goodness). But what the hell is everyone else supposed to do? That’s almost $23 PER FUCKING PILL. 

Whoever said the health care industry doesn’t need reform needs a boot in their ass.


The American Academy of Pediatrics would like to correct false statements made in the Republican presidential campaign that HPV vaccine is dangerous and can cause mental retardation. There is absolutely no scientific validity to this statement. Since the vaccine has been introduced, more than 35 million doses have been administered, and it has an excellent safety record.

The American Academy of Pediatrics, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the American Academy of Family Physicians all recommend that girls receive HPV vaccine around age 11 or 12. That’s because this is the age at which the vaccine produces the best immune response in the body, and because it’s important to protect girls well before the onset of sexual activity. In the U.S., about 6 million people, including teens, become infected with HPV each year, and 4,000 women die from cervical cancer. This is a life-saving vaccine that can protect girls from cervical cancer.

WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK IS THIS FUCKING SHIT? This is why I don’t watch Republican candidates debate. They MAKE SHIT UP."

"If abstinence is so effective, why is it only taught in a sexual setting? We should disband the police force and tell criminals to abstain from crime, and disband the army after telling terrorists to abstain from blowing people up. The benefits of abstinence should be spread around."

reblog if you are planning on getting/ have a tattoo, piercing, or any other body modification.



I want that tattoo like Dean and Sam… but I just want a tiny one on my wrist! FANDOM FTW.

I have one tat, and 4 ear piercings, but plan to get more. Much more.

I just (literally two days ago) got a second set of lobe piercings, and then a helix piercing. I didn’t realize how expensive it was to go to a reputable (not Claire’s, etc) studio and have it done. Totally worth it, though I wish they were healing faster. Patience is not one of my virtues and I WANNA change my jewelry!!!! Shinies! On my head! <3

Rick Santorum Argues With A Penn State Student Over Gay Marriage, Fails

Fuck yeah, Penn State! This student deserves the highest of fives, because this is awesome. 

Oh my god. He is so fucking stupid.

This student winz the interwebz. They said precisely what I was thinking, precisely when I was thinking it, “Are you a doctor? Are you a psychologist?”

Cuz frankly, I would trust what a doctor would say over that of some right-winged bigoted politician who hates facts but makes up his own when it’s convenient for him and his rich buddies to line their pockets.

Rick Santorum is a jackass.

Rick Santorum is a douchecanoe.

I’m thinking about making an art blog…

and I don’t know what to name it. It should be semi-related to this one so I can link back and forth.

Also, anyone with any recommendations for a nice, (CHEAP OMG OMG OMG I ARE SO BROKE) scanner, please send them in!!!?








The following article appeared in today’s issue of my school newspaper. Please read the…

Dear Mr. Rhatican:
You may respond that, since I am a cisgendered female I cannot speak to men’s ability to look past an outfit or circumstances and relate to a woman simply as a fellow human being, but I assure you that it is as much an issue for me and my fellow women as it is for you. I’m asking that you stop trying to make me change my behavior to suit you. It is becoming less feasible for me to believe you are a decent human being. I want to tell you that the more you demand of women to suit you, the less respect from women you will garner, and the more you understand that the world does not cater to your needs, the more tolerance and understanding you will receive.  You may reply “But your body and sexuality offends me! What do you want me to do, stop judging you? Can I not wallow in my preconceived notions of femininity? Should I simply never speak again?”
There are people of all genders who cherish a respectful and understanding partner before a sexist and judgmental one. We do not demand chivalry; we demand equality and respect. You ask why women don’t do what you want. Why would we?
It is increasingly difficult for me to think about this bilious piece of trash without resorting to language that is crude and unpublishable in frustration. By prejudging women based solely on what they wear and shaming those women whose sex lives are more active and/or fulfilling than you want them to be, you have proudly announced your sexism and slut-shaming to the world. You demand women conform to your wishes and wonder why they run the other way. You make women into mannequins and wonder why they don’t respond to you. You feel powerful when you lay down the law and wonder why nobody follows it.
I’m sorry you’re not capable of relating to women. I’m sorry you have no self-control when it comes to “disrespecting women with your eyes”, and I sincerely hope that that phrase does not mean that you sexually harass women who aren’t clothed “chastely”. It’s too bad your self-righteousness will continue to impede your relationships with others until you decide to be a decent human being. 
Good luck with that.
(my comment is ‘pending moderator review’.)



He’s home. He’s safe. I haven’t felt this relieved in years.

I’m so happy for you both!
