If only we could get people to care about the thousands killed in Pakistan, Yemen, Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria like they do about the 3 killed in Boston.
There’d be no more endless wars.
Had quite a scary moment today but my baby is doing good and that is awesome :)
I’m predominantly homosexual. Only incidentally heterosexual. Woohoo.
Lol. Doesn’t surprise me.
I’m predominantly heterosexual, but more than incidentally homosexual.
I’m equally heterosexual and homosexual. This isn’t news to me.
if we talk and we get really close and stuff and then for like a while afterwards I don’t make much of an effort to talk to you
I’m really sorry
That’s just how I function and its not because I don’t like you anymore or I don’t think about you
I just forget a lot and want to be alone and I get wrapped up in myself and my life and I get distracted so I’m really sorry
TO: anyone who has ever been my friend ever
Re-posting on this blog as well. Because it is exciting and nerve wracking but this is my tiny, sea-horse looking baby. I am 8 weeks 2 days today :D
Mallory Ortberg of Gawker, critiquing CNN’s disgusting response to the Stuebenville rape trial verdicts.
Her commentary is spot on.
CNN: ”Let’s cry about how these poor rich white teenagers’ lives are ruined while ignoring that they raped a person and are consequently being held accountable for their crimes!”
For readers interested in learning more about how not to be labeled as registered sex offenders, a good first step is not to rape unconscious women, no matter how good your grades are. Regardless of the strength of your GPA (weighted or unweighted), if you commit rape, there is a possibility you may someday be convicted of a sex crime. This is because of your decision to commit a sex crime instead of going for a walk, or reading a book by Cormac McCarthy. Your ability to perform calculus or play football is generally not taken into consideration in a court of law. Should you prefer to be known as ‘Good student and excellent football player Trent Mays’ rather than ‘Convicted sex offender Trent Mays,’ try stressing the studying and tackling and giving the sex crimes a miss altogether…
Trent Mays and Ma’lik Richardson are not the “stars” of the Steubenville rape trial. They aren’t the only characters in a drama playing out in eastern Ohio. And yet a CNN viewer learning about the Steubenville rape verdict is presented with dynamic, sympathetic, complicated male figures, and a nonentity of an anonymous victim, the ‘lasting effects’ of whose graphic, public sexual assault are ignored. Small wonder, then, that anyone would find themselves on the side of these men—these poor young men, who were very good at taking tests and playing sports when they were not raping their classmates.
