They’re just so strange. (Not behemoth-depths strange, but strange nonetheless.)
The footage of former Ravens running back Ray Rice punching his then-fiancée in the face started a much-needed conversation about domestic violence. This comedian took a completely different approach with a “Ray Rice Inspired Makeup Tutorial” that could’ve gone so incredibly wrong but instead gets it so so right.
OHHHH MY GODDDD I THOUGHT SHE WAS GONNA DO BLACK FACE BUT IT TURNED OUT SO MUCH BETTER THAN I EXPECTED
It’s time again
"Tunak Tunak Tun" (Punjabi: ਤੁਣਕ ਤੁਣਕ ਤੁਣ) or "Tunak", is a bhangra/pop love song by Indian artist Daler Mehndi released in 1998. At the time, critics complained that Mehndi’s music was only popular due to his videos that featured beautiful women dancing. Mehndi’s response was to create a video that featured only himself.
also gosh the lyrics to this are actually really sweet & great i never realised
This scene means so much to me right now. (x)
We really are the lowest of the low right now. We had the chance to peacefully and democratically reclaim our country and we fucking said ‘no’ to our own independence
This is called humanity
I have nothing to say on this, these people are the pinnacle of human compassion, and that is all there is to it.
I want to bring your attention to the #notacosplayer project run by Eddie of Food and Cosplay (facebook, tumblr).
Pretty angry at those photos right? Yeah, me too. The top one is me and six of the other cosplayers are extremely close friends of mine. (I’ve tagged their pages if you click on the photos!)
#notacosplayer is here to tackle the bullying within the cosplay community and especially that from outside. A lot of people, too many people believe that you have to be a thin, white woman with large boobs and an incredibly attractive face to be “allowed” to cosplay, and then what? If you are you’re brandished a slut/whore, a fake geek and only doing it for male attention. Yes there are a small handful of people who do infact cosplay for attention and have no interest in the characters, but for the people with a genuine love of what they’re doing, this is massively hurtful.
Comments like the ones above are received on a daily basis for a lot of cosplayers, whether it be a sly remark from another convention goer, on a facebook page where “well its just a picture on the internet” or some other form of online forum, the comments are read and they’re upsetting.
Cosplayers spend countless hours picking costumes, hunting down where the best place to get them from is or locating the most realistic parts for a costume. They send off designs and reference to commissioners to ensure that their piece is perfect and just how they want it, constantly giving feedback and input on their item. Some other cosplayers spend hours and hours slaving away with cuts and burns to create something they’re proud of and love.
They take a picture and hang it with absolute pride at how awesome they look, how they replicated their favorite character in their own way. They show it to their friends who all say how awesome it is and they share it around.
And for what?
Definitely not for some random person off the internet to feel the need to comment and chip in, ignoring every ounce of effort and accuracy on a costume. Friend, you found this image probably because you’re a fan of what I’m cosplaying from, could you comment on my costume please?
No, straight for the jugular, right in the “you’re not good enough to cosplay because…”
"You’re #notacosplayer because…”
Well I am. And Everyone else who says their a cosplayer is a cosplayer. The rules of cosplay aren’t written on attractiveness or likeness, they’re written on costume play.
So stand proud guys. Bullying will not be tolerated anymore. Share your stories and lets stop this horrible taboo where we never speak about the nasty comments we receive. Its a major part and its driving out incredible members of our community. Negativity won’t be tolerated anymore.
You’re all amazing and incredible and you can do whatever you set your mind to. Don’t let these comments put you off doing that dream character or starting cosplaying. Stand up proud and where that costume, show bullies and negativity that you don’t care…
Oh gosh, a blog I follow has shared this project out. Thank you.
oh. my. god.
Muslims against ISIS…… because we don’t want the 0.01% representing the 99.99%
To all of you racists out there posting “I don’t see Muslims protesting ISIS”
Muslims, leaps and bounds beyond christians and cops.
This post is so fucking nasty especially that disgusting comment above mine
I’m so sick and tired of us having to convince other people of our humanity every time any Muslim in the world farts.
How many times do we need to open up with disclaimers when discussing something? How many times do you hear a Muslim begin their statement with “I’m a proud American/British/etc citizen and am against terror” before they dare to practice their free speech, and god forbid, criticize the country they live in?
How many times do you hear westerners start up with a disclaimer when they want to talk about the Middle East/North Africa/anywhere on the planet? How many of them begin with “Oh first of all I’d like to denounce colonialism and imperialism”?
I’m not apologizing for anything any Muslim ever does or has done, because I am not the bloody spokesperson for a fifth of the whole planet.
We do not need to prove anything to anyone.
Our actions should be purely in solidarity and support for Iraqis and Syrians menaced by ISIS, and any other group really in any part of the world currently suffering.
It should never be an attempt to “prove” our humanity and to try and win brownie points from apathetic westerners with more blood on their hands than a thousand ISIS could ever manage.
this is fucking hilarious
im so fucking done
strangely shaped puppies where are you going
