While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.

WHY WASNT THIS NATIONAL NEWS?!

I think we know why.

This made Atlanta news because it happened not far from where I live. It was only a few months after Sandy Hook and I just remember crying from relief when I heard about this woman and how she managed to prevent another tragedy through compassion and empathy.

problackgirl:

we’ve taught girls to romanticise nearly everything a boy does. when i was younger i thought it was cute that boys chased the girl even after she said no. i loved it when after a girl moved away from a kiss, the guy would pull her back and force it on. i thought a guy saying ‘i won’t take a no for an answer’ was passionate and romantic. we’re literally always teaching girls to romanticise abusive traits.

Confession: I really really really really REALLY hope we get to meet the Arishok in DA:I, even if it’s just one scene or some kind of flashback of Iron Bull’s, I NEED IT.

Devil’s Advocate:


He wouldn’t be Arishok anymore. No matter what you choose, either the Arishok is dead or he is removed from his position for failing in Kirkwall (so he wouldn’t be THE Arishok… someone else would. Sten if he is alive)

ONE THING YOU SHOULD NEVER CALL AN ATTRACTIVE WOMAN

There are many ways to kindly and respectfully compliment the way a woman looks. But one descriptor that should be left out of such comments? “Exotic.”

Cristen Conger of the How Stuff Works podcast, Stuff Mom Never Told You, takes on the topic of “exotic” beauty.

Watch the full video with Conger explaining how Lupita Nyong’o was “extocized” during the 2014 Oscar season here. 

Cristen is the best! Also the How Stuff Works podcast is my fave.

Yay! My desktops is restoredededed!

No to curl up and cry because @kinlochhold deleted her blog and thus her AWESOME LIST OF DRAGON AGE MODS.

I guess a bonus to having Origin is that I can just redownload Origins and not have to bother with a serial number again.

The trick will be if it remembers my DLC…
