im honestly very tired of artists using fat ppl to illustrate the wrongs of capitalism
To be honest, many fat people today are the direct result of capitalism. Every “overweight” person out there is not suffering from a medical condition, many (very much the majority) of them just eat shitty food and don’t give a fuck about their body. And why? Because capitalism spends loads of money to tell them every day all the time that it’s cool! Watch “the century of self” and don’t take it so personally.

FUN FACT: These eggs are evil. Octopus babies are evil. Let me tell you why. The octopus mother lays her eggs in a cave roof and spends 6 months guarding them from potential predators and swaying the eggs with her tentacle so they get oxygen. This means she doesn’t eat or sleep until they hatch. When the octopus babies hatch, she dies from fatigue and starvation. THEN THEY FUCKING EAT HER. THEY EAT THEIR MOTHER WHO DIED BECAUSE SHE WAS LOOKING AFTER THEM. THEY. EAT. HER.
This sounds like what my mother said i did to her

Oh hey facebook, no problem! i’d love to spend 3 months answering that question for you so you can try to sell me more shit!
The frightening thing is that, like most of their other campaigns against women, they see themselves as just warriors fighting for what’s right. This is primarily because they firmly believe that any woman who speaks up on women’s issues is completely disingenuous and only doing it for the purposes of self-promotion, and that any man who does is looking to get laid, because they actually cannot possibly imagine a scenario in which someone would genuinely give a shit about women.
Members of this board, as well as “Men’s Rights Activists” in general, tend to go apoplectic at even the most mild implications that women might be human beings. For them, this is simply “not allowed” and must be punished swiftly and severely, as they appear to believe that feminism is the one obstacle in the way of all these pathetic neckbeards getting their pick of supermodel girlfriends who obey their every whim. The goal is to make it as uncomfortable to speak out about misogyny and women’s issues as possible, which is why they go to the wall in terms of harassing women like Emma Watson. At the end of the day, this is the crux of it. It would be sad if it weren’t so vile.

Privacy for Normal People (please reblog!)
My latest Guardian column, Privacy technology everyone can use would make us all more secure, makes the case for privacy technology as something that anyone can — and should use, discussing the work being done by the charitable Simply Secure foundation that launches today (site is not yet up as of this writing), with the mandate to create usable interfaces to cryptographic tools, and to teach crypto developers how to make their tools accessible to non-technical people.

Apple’s Patriot-Act-detecting “warrant canary” dies
Song : “The Miracle of Joey Ramone”, U2, 2014
This song is the proof that Bono really is a Dickhead. A corporate Rock song In honor of Apple’s New toy, is probably the exact kind of thing the Ramones stood up against. This a not a tribute, it’s a real outrage. and that really pissed me off.
