This Sunday, more than 1,000 LGBT advocates in Serbia held their first pride parade in four years. And for the first time in ten years, it didn’t end in violence. 

Pride marches from the last three years had been banned, but this year, officials allowed the ban to expire at midnight the day before the parade.

As the parade date approached, anti-gay graffiti popped up all over the city of Belgrade, and a massive protest took place the night before, complete with a giant police force (some photos of that above, too). Though there were multiple arrests at the parade Sunday, the event went off without any large-scale violence. 

Human rights are a question mark here, and activists know it. In fact, one sign read, “For all the victims of violence in Serbia.”

THIS HAD BEEN DRIVING ME NUTS FOR FOREVER. 

So there.  Now I have figured it out. 

People who I suspect have thought about this less than me:

  • Tolkien

  • real geneticists
  • God
  • anyone

Good lord.

And this is how a fanfic writer works.

"

“Do what you love” disguises the fact that being able to choose a career primarily for personal reward is a privilege, a sign of socioeconomic class. Even if a self-employed graphic designer had parents who could pay for art school and co-sign a lease for a slick Brooklyn apartment, she can bestow DWYL as career advice upon those covetous of her success.

If we believe that working as a Silicon Valley entrepreneur or a museum publicist or a think-tank acolyte is essential to being true to ourselves, what do we believe about the inner lives and hopes of those who clean hotel rooms and stock shelves at big-box stores? The answer is: nothing.

Do what you love, love what you do: An omnipresent mantra that’s bad for work and workers. (via bakcwadrs)

a couple of other quotes from the article i really like:

According to this way of thinking, labor is not something one does for compensation but is an act of love. If profit doesn’t happen to follow, presumably it is because the worker’s passion and determination were insufficient. Its real achievement is making workers believe their labor serves the self and not the marketplace

and

Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life! Before succumbing to the intoxicating warmth of that promise, it’s critical to ask, “Who, exactly, benefits from making work feel like nonwork?” “Why should workers feel as if they aren’t working when they are?” In masking the very exploitative mechanisms of labor that it fuels, DWYL is, in fact, the most perfect ideological tool of capitalism. If we acknowledged all of our work as work, we could set appropriate limits for it, demanding fair compensation and humane schedules that allow for family and leisure time.

Fooling exploited people into thinking everything is just the way it should be is one of the most disturbing things about capitalism.

#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.

That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.

This is why honey is not vegan.

The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.

YOU’RE NOT MILKING THE BEES FOR THE HONEY
YOU’RE NOT EVEN HURTING THEM
OR THEIR HOME
FUCK, PEOPLE…

HUMAN BEINGS EATING HONEY IS LITERALLY ONE OF THE MAIN THINGS PREVENTING BEE EXTINCTION YOU STUPID FUCKING FUCKTRUMPET!

Anonymous said: Any tips on how ican lose that hour glass figure ? I'm pre t and my stomach seems to be out of shape basically . I appreciate any workout routines you might have (: thanks Limo

Hour glass figure. Getting rid of that is by working the areas in your core, and mid-back.

Lats. Back.

this will widen your back, straightening out your back and between your hips and chest.

wide grip pull ups. If you cant do them right away, then put a chair under you, and lightly assist yourself, but dont push up from the chair, just pull yourself up with your arms using your back. do 10-12 of these for 3 sets. slow, all the way up and all the way down.

Next:

Barbell Bent Over Row. ( you could also do this with dumbbells if you dont have a barbell)

Your grip should be wider than shoulder width. You should tighten your core and straighten your back as you do this. slow but powerful movements, hold it for one second when you pull it up. 10-12 reps, 3 sets.

Okay, another important area you want to target is the obliques, my favorite.

Weighted Oblique Static Holds

Lay on one side of your body with your back completely straight and slowly crunch your legs towards your torso. Really squeeze your side/obliques. At the peak contraction point, or the point where you’re squeezing the hardest, hold it there for 45 seconds. Don’t worry if you’re unable to get 45 seconds right away, hold it for as long as you can and slowly build up to 45 seconds over time. Repeat for the other side. Do this once now, and again at the end of the work out.

Dumbbell Side Bends

Hold a dumbbell in each hand.Stand up straight with your feet about shoulder width apart.Bend your body whilst lowering one weight closer to the floor.Go as far as you can.In a controlled motion, raise up again. Repeat the same motion in alternate direction.Do 4 sets of 15 reps on each side.

Oblique Side Crunches

These are side crunches. and yes you have to smile like that as you do it.

This is the exact form, hair cut included, too. Do at least 2 sets of 20-30 reps. Work up to 3 sets 30-40 reps, and then 5 sets 40-50 reps. Give it time, work yourself up slowly.

and there you go. Make sure you work yourself fully. sometimes doing crunches, you want to stop and swear you have no more juice left. but if you really push yourself, thats my challenge to you, i swear you will pull an inner strength out of you that you didnt even know you had. Eventually you can look just like this:

Now that’s exciting. Good luck. It’s worth the hard work, give it about a month and you will be seeing differences, and in time, some massive differences.

Why Did a Black Man Get Shot and Killed by Police in Walmart for Carrying an Unloaded Air Rifle in an Open Carry State?
On Wednesday, prosecutors released security footage from the Beavercreek, Ohio, Walmart where 22-year-old John Crawford III was fatally shot by police on August 5. Also on Wednesday, a grand jury decided not to bring charges against Sean Williams, the officer who killed Crawford. This all seems depressingly normal: A black man is dead for little or no reason, everyone agrees it’s a very, very sad thing, and you can’t help but think that he wouldn’t be dead if he were white.

The August 5 incident began when Crawford picked up an air rifle in the store and aimlessly fiddled with it as he spoke on a cell phone to his girlfriend. Unbeknownst to him, police officers Sean Williams David M. Darkow were on the scene after responding to a call from a man named Ronald Ritchie, who told 9-1-1 a black man was waving a gun and pointing it at children. The full surveillance footage does not match up with that account, and Ritchie has now changed his story. The final two minutes of footage show Crawford being seemingly unaware that police were there, as he chats on his phone. And police in turn gave him no time at all to drop the rifle before shooting. Crawford’s last words—heard over the phone by his girlfriend—were “It’s not real!”
Currently, Crawford’s death is being treated as a tragedy by the authorities, but a mostly unavoidable one. According to the grand jury the cops responded appropriately considering what they heard from dispatch—who, Williams’s report says, told them that Crawford was waving around a real gun. Even if Crawford failed to obey their “repeated commands” to drop the weapon, however, the surveillance footage shows that he didn’t have any time to do so before the cops opened up.
