Q:Why are you so angry about JLaw's nudes being leaked? I thought you didn't like her.
- i am angry because this is just another example of women being shamed for taking nudes instead of the douchebag who spreads them being shamed for violating someone’s privacy like that
- i am angry because nobody deserves this, regardless of how i feel about their personality
- i am angry because this is pure misogyny and shows how women aren’t respected in our culture
- i am angry because she did not consent to having those pics posted everywhere but they still were
- i am angry because on the VERY RARE occasion this happens to a male celeb he is not shamed but rather the perpetrator is and it’s forgotten quickly whereas this will haunt jennifer for years and years to come
- i am angry because this was a sex crime and people are treating it like a joke
- i am angry because she is being exploited/objectified and some gross dudebros are probably jacking off to those pics
- i am angry because people are CONGRATULATING the fucker who did such an atrocious thing to her instead of being appalled
listen i may not like her personally but the fact remains that as a human being she is entitled to body autonomy and to choose who sees her naked body and who doesn’t
There’s also real questions that we should all be asking about what responsibility companies have to ensure and protect our private data.
It seems who ever did this had access to a lot of digital information across numerous systems and proceeded to target people because they were famous women.
That’s textbook hate crimes.
Lying is the best and often also the most ethical way to get a job.
For $150, this guy bought a fake résumé & callable references in an industry he’s never worked in. And got hired:
For a small fee, CareerExcuse.com promises to not only craft an elaborate lie based on your exact job specifications but to see it through for as long as necessary. The site will provide a live HR operator and staged supervisor, along with building and hosting a virtual company website—complete with a local phone number and toll-free fax. CareerExcuse will even go so far as to make the fake business show up on Google Maps.
William Schmidt started the site in 2009, after being let go from his job in a round of layoffs during the lowest depths of the recession.
“While we were all unemployed, a couple of my former coworkers asked me to act as their reference for job interviews,” Schmidt recalled. “I did it for free for my friends, but then I realized that this is some there’s a pretty big demand for. It was something I could take to the public.”
He was right. Within the first 24 hours of launching the CareerExcuse site, Schmidt had already received multiple order for his services. He’s quick to brush off ethical concerns, citing horror stories from his clients about being mistreated by their former employers (and thus being unable to acquire a reference) and noting that it becomes more difficult to land a job the longer someone’s been unemployed.
Employment is a racket. So is college.
The second episode, in fact, also features a woman, Emily, whose partner is a black man. “Now, I know there’s a hot mama hidden in Emily. After all, she got a black man!” says Tracy.
(By the way, just when you think the show can’t get more awkward, the second episode brings a moment in which Emily explains that she met her husband when she reached out and, fascinated, touched his hair. Do we need to talk about how one does not do that? One does not do that. This goes unmentioned.)
HOLY SHIT! IF SOME STRANGER TOUCHED MY HAIR, I WOULD TAKE THEIR HAND AND WEAR IT IN MY HAIR AS A FUCKING PICK, AS A REMINDER TO EVERYONE.
I don’t even have a fro anymore.

We all can’t wait to see what you can bring to Aurora West! Go and have fun!
a lot of people are STILL asking me how Iggy Azalea is racist and homophobic so i’m just going to make a proper post
in addition to all of this she also calls herself a “slave master” at 0:06 in this video
the amount of notes on this post
adding this bit from Nick’s reblog b/c it cracked me up:
learning that iggy is a racist mess is like learning that mayonnaise doesn’t do well when it’s out in the sun.
oh cool, I mean, wasn’t planning on caring about that, but good to remember to just stay away I guess.
All the hate i’ve seen on about Iggy Azalea makes a lot of sense.
For the quantities in play now beggar the human imagination. Dumped or accidentally spilled from ships, blown from landfills, washed down every river in the world, plastic trash has been amassing since World War II in floating dumps, some of which exceed millions of square miles. Round and round the all-too-durable plastic goes, imponderable quantities caught up in the great oceanic gyres. These “garbage patches,” as they are called, are out of sight and out of mind, but not entirely inactive. Like all things the sea claims, plastic too suffers a sea change. And the ultimate harm our throw-away effluvia might yet do, to the health of the sea and the human future, nobody knows for sure.
Lots of take-aways from this article. Here’s an infographic for the TLDR crowd.
Copped a miles Morales for Es and a Falcon for one of her class mates birthday.
Still no lady ones from Marvel yet.
Get on that shit motherfuckers.
Pero obvio que tenia que costar $69.95
There’s only one way this could even be remotely good was if the AI was written by a woman who just trolled the fuck out of every dude who blew $70 bucks on this.
