and I am a very indecisive person
so I sat down at the crossroads
and eventually died of starvation

"To get a gun in Japan, first, you have to attend an all-day class and pass a written test, which are held only once per month. You also must take and pass a shooting range class. Then, head over to a hospital for a mental test and drug test (Japan is unusual in that potential gun owners must affirmatively prove their mental fitness), which you’ll file with the police. Finally, pass a rigorous background check for any criminal record or association with criminal or extremist groups, and you will be the proud new owner of your shotgun or air rifle. Just don’t forget to provide police with documentation on the specific location of the gun in your home, as well as the ammo, both of which must be locked and stored separately. And remember to have the police inspect the gun once per year and to re-take the class and exam every three years."

A Land Without Guns: How Japan Has Virtually Eliminated Shooting Deaths (via buttension)

see, that’s gun control
you don’t take away a person’s right to bear arms
you take away a person’s ability to abuse their arms
i mean it’s high maintenance but i really think it’d be worth it if it saves lives  

(via vintagedressesandavocados)

We have that in Slovenia, too. Works like magic. There are maybe three shooting deaths/murders a year. But let’s be honest, people find other ways to kill people. Axe murderers are springing up like mushrooms after rain.

first rule of fight club: be a misogynistic tool

second rule of fight club: pretend exaltation of masculinity is profound in a masculine society

third rule of fight club: fail to understand that the text is a critique of self-important hypermasculine manbabies and that “protagonist” is not the same as “hero”

fourth rule of fight club: if you think you’re reading an exaltation of masculinity, you apparently haven’t been reading the same novel

Anonymous said: Shut the fuck up about 50 shades of grey. No one fucking cares

oh hun

let me just give you a quick run down of all the things wrong with this ask:

1-you assume i care what some asshole anon has to say when i have 300 pounds and i’m going kikass birthday shopping today

2-you assume id care about some asshole anon any other day of the year

3-i care about the 50 shades of grey thing. and whether you do or not is irrelevant to me because you are, after all, just an asshole anon

4- this is my blog and i’ll post whatever the fuck i want, if you cant take three fucking posts about something without turning into a soggy cum stained dishrag then i suggest you make use of that unfollow button because youre gross

5- lemme break this down for you

if you dont care about this 50 shades situation, you need to grow the fuck up and look at the facts

the fact is the book was so misinformed that all the practises about bdsm culture were ignored and shit all over.

he ignores the safeword

he legitimately rapes her

he never explains everything about bdsm culture to her, shes so misinformed its ridiculous

and all of this is going even more public than it already has and its being romanticised and released on valentines day 

like “happy valentines honey! i bought some ropes i dont actually know how to tie and a whip i dont actually know how to use and i’m going to just gloss over the fact you’re uncomfortable because that clearly doesnt matter!”

incorrect use of a whip can cause organ failure

incorrect knots used on wrists or feet can literally cause them to need to be amputated

its perpetuating rape culture in ways ive never seen it be advanced to this leve; and if you dont care then youre truly disgusting 

you dont care about the kids not fully understanding their sexuality being abused by older people who they think are totally allowed to do this shit?

you dont care about the people that will be raped because of this because hey apparently rape is sexy?

you dont care about the fact that the bdsm culture is, once again, being portrayed as people who are fucked up and must have been abused to be that way rather than normal people who enjoy a kink in their own homes?

you dont care about the fact that youre not supposed to bleed on your first time. ever. and now tons more girls are going to think that its completely normal? that tons more guys will? that tons of people are going to think its expected for the female to bleed when SHE WONT IF SHES BEEN SUFFICIENTLY TURNED ON AND STRETCHED ITS REALLY NOT THAT HARD

you dont care about the stereotype of subs not actually enjoying bdsm culture is being widespread? that all subs dislike it and simply have an ulterior motive?

you dont care about the underlying message of the book being “a woman should give everything, including herself, to a man”?

you dont care about all the people in abusive relationships that will think “oh well this must be normal then” and stay there?

christian grey is a run-of-the-mill abusive boyfriend. he isnt a dom. 

a dom loves his/her sub completely and the motto of bdsm is "safe, willing and sane" (or something like that anyone feel free to correct me)

it means that both partners have to be completely willing, with boundaries, safewords and everything worked out before they even think about touching eachother intimately. 

if something is a boundary, you dont fucking do it

that simple

if the safeword is used it stops. everything stops

that simple

a dom should treat his sub like a goddamn princess (unless they have prearranged and understand that he wont eg-pet play, slave play where anything outside of the bedroom is also in the same dynamic HOWEVER IT IS STILL CONSENSUAL SO IT IS STILL OKAY)

a dom is not christian grey

but millions of people are going to think he is and are going to think that thats the way bdsm should be and they’ll get involved in something very dangerous if they dont have the real facts.

that people will think its romantic because this shit is scheduled for valentines day  to treat your partner like shit, abuse her, and that what? getting them off absorbs you of all your shit? no. this is so fucking gross and im not taking a backseat when this shit happens

so in conclusion

literally fuck you, you insensitive fuck stain, this issue is so fucking important.

THANK YOU, THIS IS SO COMPLETE, THERE’S EVERYTHING THAT NEEDS TO BE SAID

THANK YOU 

also, i would like to share the opinion of the italian female writer dacia maraini: “i think women like this book so much because it gives them the idea they can be free from the abuse of men by choosing their abuser. but that’s a paradox, you see”

What are you suppose to call a bromance between girls? Boobmance? Bramance ?

You call it friendship.

Because girls don’t have to have special ‘I Love you/this/whatev no homo’ names for everything.

What’s “girl crush” then?

I’m actually really confused about “girl crush”. Because at first, it looks like this awesome, open-minded concept - “I’m not into girls, but babe, I’m into you.” But on the other hand, I feel there’s a definite ‘no lesbo’ vibe to it, which grosses me the fuck out.  

in the moment of unprecedented peace and quiet in the last two weeks, i am sitting in a cafe enjoying some much needed WiFi time, and what happens? a family with little brats comes in and sits right behind me.

there goes my planned porn time. and by porn I mean scrolling my dash, which is mostly porn anyway.

i want a biopic of christopher marlowe starring ben whishaw.

YES PLEASE

the real question here is who gets to play shakespeare and, more importantly, gets to make out with whishaw

"The idea that some races and cultures have a higher aim in life than others … gives the more powerful, more developed, more civilized the right therefore to colonize others, not in the name of brute force or raw plunder, both of which are standard components of the exercise, but in the name of a noble ideal."
