Pro-tip: shaming and judging people will not help lower abortions rates. Advocating and promoting better access to free/cheap birth control and comprehensive sex education for the schools and general public, will.

Yes, I’m looking at you, pro-life community. Actions speak louder than words, and if all you do is sit behind a computer and tell people how horrible they are for making the best choice for themselves, YOU’RE PART OF THE PROBLEM, not the solution.

most girls suck at video games either way sadly. just stop calling yourself a nerd for playing video games when your palette consists of the call of duty franchise.

Sure, girls are terrible at games and only play call of duty, I was just thinking this the other day while playing halo with some of my female friends who beat me most games and when we played gta and minecraft and plants vs zombies

Does it really fucking matter whether a girl only plays Call Of Duty? I know of a few girls who play a whole range of games, not limited to COD… Also… There are guys out there that only play one game and have played that one game for years.

i agree with scottknapp. One of the most severe ass-kickings I ever incurred on Halo was me and about six other guys getting our asses beat by two of my female friends. I only managed to get any kills because the guys tried to run up one of the girls in their holed-up position, so I just snuck around. I then switched to their team and started tearing holes through the others.

Three killed after shootings at Jewish centres in Kansas

A 73-year-old man opened fire outside a Jewish centre and nearby retirement community in Kansas City on Sunday, killing three people including a 14-year-old boy, police said.

The suspect was identified as Frazier Glenn Cross by authorities in Kansas, and by the Southern Poverty Law Center as Frazier Glenn Miller, a longtime anti-Semite who is the former grand dragon of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. Full story

If everything pro-lifers said to women who are entering abortion clinics wasn’t true, these women would have no reason to feel ashamed. If abortion were simply a medical procedure, millions upon millions wouldn’t be outraged by the end result

No, much of the shame that pregnant people - and people who have had an abortion - face is thanks to the stigma on abortion.  A stigma that asshats like you perpetuate by harassing, misinforming, and hurting the masses.

People who have had abortions or who want abortions are told they’re murderers, they’re irresponsible, and somehow they’re worth less than a non-sentient fetus.  They’re screamed at, harassed, constantly pushed toward guilt-trips, threatened, and sometimes even hurt or killed.  

No.  Your stigma against abortion hurts people and causes the shame.  Your harassment is akin to bullies who drive their victims to suicide.  Your words are toxic.

Also, non-Jews, please spread this. People will forget about it otherwise. The police say they aren’t ready to call it a hate crime, despite the fact that witnesses have said that the man was asking people if they were Jewish and waiting for an affirmative response before shooting. The more people who are paying attention to this story the harder it will be for it to be swept under the rug. 
A lot of people are currently very excited about the recent Cap movie. If you believe that it was worthwhile for Steve Rogers to fight fictional nazis, please show that you care about the people harmed by those in the real world who still agree with Nazi ideology. If you can get super excited and make tons of posts about Cap, then you can do this too, right? (obviously there are people who are upset/triggered by this stuff, which is an entirely different situation. but if you can spread the word please do)

why does anyone even care about other people doing things that have no negative outcome? like let girls take selfies with starbucks!! let straight dudes wear weird clothes!! let gay people be as feminine or as masculine as they want!! the next time you find yourself getting annoyed at someone, ask yourself “is this disrespectful? is this harmful to me or anyone else?” if the answer is no, then let it go - you probably have bigger things to worry about anyways

Exactly. Does it affect anyone but the person doing it? No? Then go for it. Not my problem.

Why would I sue over that? 

You don’t have to sue, but you should ask whoever is in charge of the dining hall to order kosher food from whatever supplier they use, and to label it as kosher in the dining hall. The president of the animal rights club at my alma mater was able to get the dining hall to serve cage-free eggs. It didn’t seem to be too difficult.

I have and they do serve kosher food at the main campus- the issue is that I attend a satellite campus of my university with ~600 students so it doesn’t justify the cost, and passover food restrictions are even stricter and would require a completely seperate menu. 

I get this all the fucking time. We’re pro-choice. That means choosing to keep, abort or adopt. Not pro-abort-everything-always. I’ve had unplanned pregnancies and kept them.We’re pro-do-what-is-right-for-you.

ABC host George Stephanopoulos announced on This Week that talk radio host and Fox News contributor Laura Ingraham is the network’s “newest contributor.” On her syndicated radio program The Laura Ingraham Show, Ingraham has repeatedly engaged in inflammatory and hateful rhetoric, lobbing numerous attacks against everyone from President Obama to people who receive government assistance to her favorite target, immigrants.

Here are 10 hateful moments from Ingraham in the past year:

1. Ingraham Used A Gunshot Sound Effect To Cut Off A Replay Of Rep. John Lewis’ March On Washington Speech. During her coverage of the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington in August 2013, Ingraham criticized the event and its speakers, saying the goal “was to co-opt the legacy of Martin Luther King into a modern-day liberal agenda.” She then played a clip of a speech from Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), who was the youngest speaker at the 1963 March on Washington, abruptly interrupting the playback of his comments with the sound of a loud gunshot. Following criticism of this sound effect, Ingraham defended her use of the gunshot sound, instead calling it a “blow up effect” and claiming that criticism of her using the sound effect on Lewis was an attempt “to crush free speech.”

2. “Hillary Clinton Should Be Absolutely Crucified For Her Lack Of Performance As Secretary Of State.” On her August 2, 2013, radio show, Ingraham lobbed attacks against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton while discussing foreign policy, claiming that the rest of the world is “emboldened by Barack Obama’s weakness” and that Clinton “should be absolutely crucified for her lack of performance” as secretary of state.

3. Ingraham Repeatedly Mocked An Immigration Protestor For Speaking English With An Accent. In November 2013, Ingraham repeatedly mocked a woman who was protesting the Obama administration’s record number of deportations, saying, “Wait, what did she say at the end? I can’t — I need a translator. I speak Spanish too. I’d rather have her just speak Spanish, at least I’d understand that.” She then went on to affect the woman’s accent, stating, “No want more amnesty. No want more lies. No want more phony promises. No want more people coming into the country, filling up our schools and our emergency rooms, having anchor babies and then blaming us for it. No want more that.”

4. Ingraham Claimed Immigration From Mexico Would Turn U.S. Into A “Hellhole.” Ingraham used a May 2013 hearing on immigration reform to claim that immigration from Mexico would create a “hellhole” and a “mini-Mexico,” saying, “I think a lot of you look around at this culture of ours, and some of it is our own fault, but we see America disappearing. I’m not even talking about demographics, I’m talking about our culture.”

5. Ingraham Equated Negotiating With President Obama To Negotiating With Castro On Human Rights. While discussing immigration reform in August 2013, Ingraham claimed that Democrats wanted to a “forge a permanent majority in the U.S. government, which is what they wanted all along.” She continued, “Small government conservatives willing to sit down and forge a comprehensive deal with Barack Obama on immigration. I mean, if you’re willing to do that, you might as well be willing to sit down with Castro and talk about human rights, because he’s had such a great record on that.”

6. Ingraham: People Who Use Food Stamps Are The Next Hurricane Katrina “Roof Squatters.” While discussing the House of Representatives’ passage of the farm bill in July 2013, Ingraham lamented the number of people who use food stamps, saying, “44 million people sucking on the — of the government. You know, the udder of the government.” She went on to say of food stamp recipients, “The next thing you know, they’re going to be standing on the roof, waiting for the helicopters to rescue them, right, the roof squatters during Hurricane Katrina.”

7. Ingraham Threatened To Personally Primary Challenge Republicans Who Support Immigration Reform. In May and June of 2013, Ingraham launched a series of attacks against Republican politicians whom she perceived as supportive of immigration reform, going so far as to claim that she would “primary challenge [Arizona] Senator Jeff Flake [her]self.” She also stated that she would look into running against Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham for his immigration policies, saying, “people think I’m joking, I’m actually not joking,” and later asserted that she would campaign against any House Republican who supported comprehensive immigration reform.

8. Ingraham Smeared The American Children Of Undocumented Immigrants As “Anchor Fetuses.” Ingraham’s attacks against pro-immigration reform Republican politicians were accompanied by numerous smears against immigrants and Latinos, including referring to the American children of undocumented immigrants as “anchor fetuses” during a discussion about Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) “embrace of the path to citizenship” in May 2013.

9. Ingraham Compared Obama’s Immigration Policies To “Spousal Abuse.” Ingraham invoked a “spousal abuse” analogy in February to describe President Obama’s immigration policies, claiming, “The administration led by Barack Obama are abusers of our Constitution.”

10. “We Can Then Wall Off Detroit” If Immigrants Move There. In January, Ingraham derided Michigan Republican Gov. Rick Snyder’s plan to attract skilled immigrants to work and live in bankrupt Detroit, saying, “we can then wall off Detroit” to keep those immigrants from moving to other parts of the country.
