What makes me so happy about this is that she isn’t telling you you must love your body or that you are obligated to. She saying you have permission to. And that’s important, because there are a lot of reasons why people have trouble with self-love.  But the idea that you aren’t supposed to love your body, that you aren’t allowed to for whatever reason, needs to be crushed. If you can’t love you body right now, if your body causes you pain or disphoria or distress, you aren’t required to love it. But you are ALLOWED to. You are entitled to the chance to make peace with your body, if you ever reach a point where you are ready to. No one else should be trying to stop you.

Sometimes I see or read things, and I didn’t realize that I needed them until they are two GIFs of Nicki Minaj and some amazing commentary that come across my dash and I instantly burst in to tears and feel a weight lifted off my chest.

This is so important

Yoooo it is so important to recognize Nicki’s intelligence; especially with the above commentary. Nicki KNOWS what she is saying. The advice she is giving isn’t narrow, it is incredible broad so it makes everyone feel included. In so little, she said so much. This is the sign of a great orator. (Plus, anyone who disses her musicianship can go suck some nuts because she won the Young Arts Scholarship which is presented to youth who are at the top of their art genre)

i havent seen ANYONE discuss what fox news said about muslims. and the growing tension towards muslims after news stations saying they’re scared of ISIS sleeper cells in the US (because muslims are always, always targeted and bombarded with surveillance and locked up and killed under false pretenses of terrorism when this happens) and it fucking scares me so fucking much.

don’t ignore me.

Eric Garner RIP

The Rev. Al Sharpton on Saturday joined family members of a Staten Island man who died in police custody, in a rally calling for a full investigation.

Sharpton was joined by family members of Eric Garner, 43, at the National Action Network on West 145th Street.

A second rally was also held at the Mount Sinai Center for Community Enrichment on Jersey Street in Staten Island, followed by a march to the 120th Precinct police station, CBS 2′s Scott Rapoport reported.

An overcome Esaw Garner was escorted from the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network headquarters in Harlem, which was packed with hundreds of people. But Sharpton said Thursday’s death of 43-year-old Eric Garner while in custody could strain the black community’s relationship with the New York Police Department.

"This is going to be a real test to see where policies are in the city now and whether the change that we feel occurred has occurred," Sharpton said, referring to promises made by Mayor Bill de Blasio and Police Commissioner William Bratton to improve the relationship between officers and the city’s minority communities. "We are the only ones in the social setup that has to deal with fear of cops and robbers."

Garner, who was black, was confronted by police trying to arrest him on suspicion of selling untaxed, loose cigarettes on a Staten Island sidewalk, authorities said. The 6-foot-3, 350-pound Garner became irate, denying the charges and refusing to be handcuffed before one of the officers placed him in what Bratton said appeared to be a chokehold, according to partial video of the encounter obtained by the New York Daily News.

The tactic, which can be fatal, is prohibited by departmental policy.

Ramsey Orta, who recorded a cell phone video of Garner’s arrest, told 1010 WINS’ Gary Baumgarten he was worried the officers would turn on him for recording it.

Orta added that he’s happy he shot the video because “Now justice can be served.”

He said he believes had he not captured the arrest on video, there would be no investigation.

“It would have been swept right under the rug, right under the rug,” Orta said. “Ain’t nothing would of happened.”

Commissioner Bratton said on Friday the incident would be investigated within the NYPD.

“Choke holds are in fact prohibited by the New York City Police Department because of the concerns of potential death arising from them,” Bratton said.

A criminal investigation and an internal NYPD probe have been launched following Garner’s death. He does have a record of more than 30 arrests – mostly misdemeanors – for selling illegal cigarettes.

Esaw Garner earlier said she thought it was no excuse for the way her husband was treated. Their family has been left to care for six children without their father.

“My son, my son is missing his dad. He’s leaving for college on Aug. 5 on a full scholarship in basketball and his father didn’t get to see him,” she said.

JonTron just linked this image as an example of how men are stereotyped and exploited in video games I’m literally laughing out loud holy shit

for anyone who still doesn’t get it notice the background please

Fun fact: topless slave girls are COLLECTIBLES in this game.

See, the problem is that the guys objectification is empowering. You’re empowered because you’re taking advantage of the other objectified people.

Also, can my followers who like guys please comment on whether or not they find this guy sexually attractive?

nah, too much muscle. Muscle is hard… I want something soft to rest my head on! :P the only guy that i’ve ever been attracted to who has looked like this is Jason Momoa. 

I personally like muscles. I adore them. They fascinate me.
But this Conan doesn’t look sexually attractive. He looks like he’s gonna kill me - he’s intimidating and forceful. I’d better stay away from him.
If he looked like this
I’d say “Well, hello sexy.”
Objectification and sexualization don’t really depend on character’s looks, even if they use it to objectificate and sexualize. They depend on character’s purpose and agency.
A girl character can run around with her titties exposed but still could be not sexualized.

Just my 2 cents

It got better.
