The Atheist experience discusses the issue of whether or not it is moral or permissable to use a braindead person’s body as an incubator for a fetus. A person calls in and wants an explanation as to why people should not have the right to their own bodily autonomy in a comatose or braindead state.
"If she had a two-year-old, who needed an organ transplant, and she was the only one who could do it. Is it legal, should it be legal, to force her to donate that organ?”
I love this show.
The horror doesn’t stop here though. I have lots more masterposts:
masterpost of gothic/horror novels (yes I link you to a PDF version of the entire book!)
masterpost to make you feel better (when all the horror is too much)
The following aren’t masterposts, but they have an abundance of information
ok I just really want to warn people about this THING I’ve been seeing on the internet lately. It’s a collection of really frightening, short horror stories and it looks something like this:
BUT IT’S EVIL. When you are concentrating really hard to read it, THIS DEFORMED SKULL POPS OUT AT YOU AND IT GAVE ME A HEART ATTACK AND MADE ME SPILL MY TEA.
this is what it looks like by the way
Ha ha, yeah. I scared my sister-in-law with this before.
There needs to be a phrase for “I acknowledge your apology and appreciate it but it does not make things better.” instead of just saying “It’s okay.” all the time.

Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.
(Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us).
How often have you been shopping and you come across something that is just PERFECT, but does not go up to your size? Over 60% of American women wear a size 14 or above, but only 17% of clothing sold is 14 & up. That is a ridiculous disparity.
Moreover, when some brands move into plus (ahem H&M), they throw their signature trendy looks by the wayside in favor of flowy dark fabrics that they think “work” for plus sizes. That is crap. Plus size women want color, print, and structure. Moreover, we want variety. A group this numerous cannot be a monolith, and since style is such a personal thing, we all have different tastes. I want #plussizeplease to be a way to showcase the demand for styles we’d buy and rock, and all the money brands are forfeiting by refusing to expand their sizes.
So here’s how to use it:
1) Snap a picture of a garment you love but does not come in your size. Include the brand and price, tagging the company if possible. For example, I am in love with this Zara marble print dress. I would have purchased it yesterday if it went above a size L. My tweet would be:
“.@Zara marble print sheath, $59. I’d buy it right now if it came in my size. #plussizeplease”
2) Use it on any social media – Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest… even Facebook supports hashtags now.
3) Tag anything you’d purchase, whether in store or online.
4) Feel free to include the size range it comes in and/or the size you think you’d need. Sizing can be tricky, so this is definitely not required.
5) Tell your friends! I don’t just want this to be a blogger thing – I want all women who wear size 14 and up to show their purchasing power and share styles they love. Let’s be unignorable!

REBLOG if you AGREE
oh my god
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have bosses still to meet,
And hours to play before I sleep,

Nice parody of Robert Frost
Mea culpa, I didn’t note anywhere on the post that this was a parody of Robert Frost’s “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”. I’ve added a tag to the original post.
Deflate when writing prose; inflate when writing essays for school.
