IF YOU WENT TO SAN DIEGO COMIC CON OR KNOW ANYONE WHO HAS, PLEASE READ.
One of my dearest friends was found on the side of the road, unconscious and bloody. She was wearing this cosplay on the day it happened. She was last seen with friends when she ran off after a disagreement. Please, please, please, if you have ANY information or saw her anywhere, contact her mother. The full information is down below. This isn’t okay and it’s sickening to know that this happened at a place people truly can enjoy themselves. Please spread the word.
”I just received a call from the San Diego Police Department and my daughter Emily Weyer aka Milly Makara was found on the side of the road covered in blood with no ID unconscious. They are unsure what happened to her. My husband is on his way to the police station and then the hospital. If you have any information on what happened to her please send me a facebook message or call me at 951 229 3394. Thank you in advance”. -JILL WEYER
i love laughing about the friend zone because it’s so dumb like you know most of those dudes aren’t even IN the “friend zone” they’re in the “ugh god not this dude again” zone
The fact that there is enough people writing “Kaiju erotica” that I didn’t need to repeat a single author to make this set is quite scary.
Okay, I’m just gonna say that “Losing Her Kaiju Virginity” makes me think that this woman’s virginity is rampaging through Tokyo knocking over buildings and screeching in rage.
Which…is sorta what I felt like as a teenager, I grant you, but mine never took down any power plants.
apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad fuck” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
I’m in on this feud and I have chosen my side.
MARA WILSON, YOU HAVE MY SWORD.
You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge.
Apologize for mistakes. Apologize for unintentionally hurting someone — profusely. But don’t apologize for being who you are.
In the BDSM community it may be hard to tell where the line between kinky consensual play and abuse is crossed. Let this be a rule of thumb: trust your intuition. If you feel something is wrong, IT PROBABLY IS. If you feel you are being mistreated, SAY SOMETHING.

i have experienced every single one of these listed under “Abuser” All by the same person a few years back. It was hell and will tear one down completely. It took me a long time to heal and get past it. i was extremely close to giving up on exploring D/s altogether and had to take a long break. PLEASE if you experience any of these things, speak up, find someone to talk to. The Abuser will try to make you feel guilty or that you are disrespecting them and the relationship if you seek advice or help. That is all part of their abusive game as well. Discretion and privacy in a relationship is one thing. But a true and good Dom/Domme will not forbid you to reach out to others in the community or otherwise.
Please, Dom, Dommes and subs.. Read this and learn….
I can only second that, please read it, think about how these aspects turned out in your relationship.
…and please spread the word!

Holy shit, Lifehackable posted something useful.
Except Rohypnol isn’t salty - GHB and other date rape drugs are kinda salty, but Rohypnol isn’t
Rohypnol is BITTER. If your drink is saltier, it’s GHB, if it’s bitter it’s Rohypnol.
Either way, keep safe, friends.
Some Muslim workers in Cincinnati were fired recently for taking time to pray on the job after their company changed its policy on flexible break times.
Mohamed Maow, along with nearly two-dozen other Somali refugees who had been legally working part and full time at DHL Global Mail, was fired after stopping for a five minute evening prayer that is required by the religion of Islam. The three-year employee of DHL has never received any negative reviews for his work over the years, and in the past, the company allowed flexible break times that enabled the Muslim workers to be able to pray when they needed to.
After changing their break policy, however, Muslim workers were left with no choice but to take the five-minutes to pray. Workers claim that they told supervisors that they would go off the clock for the prayer time, but they weren’t allowed.
"We do not have a choice," said Shahira Abdullah, 21. "We must stop what we are doing and pray. We were not asking for an additional break."
A new supervisor had taken over not long before the group was fired, and that is when the policy changed. On October 9th, Maow and the other 23 Muslim workers stopped to pray at 7:24pm. After their prayer, three workers were called into the office by the supervisor and told they were all fired. Police were called to the scene to make sure that there were no harsh reactions when the workers were leaving the building.
Now, 12 complaints, including one from Maow, have been filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and 12 more are still expected to be filed.
"We are requesting all available remedies allowed under Title VII (of the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964) and the Kentucky Civil Rights Act, including but not limited to: damages, reinstatement where appropriate and policy changes to ensure that all worker’s civil rights are respected," said Booker Washington of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the organization that is filing the complaints on behalf of the workers.
DHL released a statement in response to the complaints filed, stating, “While we believe that all respective internal rules of DHL Global Mail are perfectly in line with legal requirements, we will investigate/consider the case carefully. DHL Global Mail is an equal opportunity employer and takes seriously all complaints of harassment and discrimination, however we do not comment in detail on pending charges or litigation. Our policies provide equal employment opportunities to all employees and comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws governing nondiscrimination in employment. DHL Global Mail ensures employees’ religious practices are understood and, as reasonable, accommodated.”
Still, Maow and the 23 other Muslim workers that were fired for taking five minutes to pray claim that there was a basic lack of understanding and an unwillingness to compromise.
"First, it’s religion," said Maow on the tenants of Islam. "Second, it’s that you are to support your father and mother and children until they are able to care for themselves. We take work very seriously. I have never had this problem before. When I took English class at Cincinnati Public Schools, my teachers always understood when I had to pray. It never was a problem."
The matter is currently being handled, but as of right now, Maow and many other former DHL workers are unemployed.
this is clearly Islamophobia but its doubly concerning that those fired include two dozen refugees that means in the mean time many of these people won’t have the resources to provide any sort of cushion for themselves and their families.
I hope that they are able to find jobs quickly that are less discriminatory.
I don’t know about you but I saw Nicki Minaj’s recent posts on Instagram as commentary on the clear double standard between displays people’s reaction of white and black women’s sexuality. The last picture, the newly released cover of her new single “Anaconda”, has received some backlash for it’s display of Nicki’s behind.
THIS IS WHY I WANT TO FEED WHITE FEMINISTS TO SHARKS BECAUSE OF SHIT LIKE THIS. WHITE WOMEN LIKE PRANCING AROUND TALKING ABOUT SEXUAL LIBERATION AND DOING SLUT WALKS WHILE BLACK WOMEN ARE CONSTANTLY DENIED THE RIGHT TO BE SEXY, TO “FLAUNT” TO BE ANYTHING OTHER THAN SEXLESS MAMMIES. WHENEVER WE WANT TO DO THE SAME SHIT WHITE WOMEN DO, SUDDENLY IT’S WRONG, WE’RE “SETTING FEMINISM BACK” AND “PANDERING TO THE MALE GAZE.” EXCUSE ME? PANDERING TO THE MALE GAZE? MOTHERFUCKER THERE ARE PLENTY OF BITCHES LIKE ME GAZING AT THE ASS FOR MORE THAN AESTHETIC.
HOW MUCH ASS WE SHOW OR SHAKE SHOULD NOT GAUGE HOW MUCH YOU RESPECT US.
BLACK WOMEN DESERVE THE RIGHT TO BE SEXY AND RESPECTED,
Either we’re sexless Mammies or loose Jezebels, but every single thing we do still has an air of sexual deviance attached to it.
