"Augustus is soooo pretentious!!!"
Ohmygod, no way?? It’s almost as if that’s exactly what John Green intended.
"Augustus Waters talked so much that he’d interrupt you at his own funeral. And he was pretentious: Sweet Jesus Christ, that kid never took a piss without pondering the abundant metaphorical resonances of human waste production."
I was originally going to post this as a link, but it auto-uploaded the photo from the article - the one the victim posted of herself after the attack. I added trigger warnings to the original post, but I thought about it, and really, it’s a tough photo to look at and not one I’d want popping up in my newsfeed. So I made it a text post. Article is here.
TRIGGER WARNING: assault, abuse, violence
From the article:
The student, who is female, has been actively involved in an opposition to tonight’s Men’s Issues Awareness Society (MIAS) talk. She claims to have received multiple threatening emails related to her involvement prior to the incident.
It’s unclear if the student knew the attacker; however, the attacker was male and knew the victim’s name, according to a source, who has requested to remain anonymous for safety reasons.
She posted a photo of injuries on Facebook following the incident, showing her chipped tooth and bruised face.
“How’s this for a ‘no makeup selfie’?,” the post read.
“I was punched in the face multiple times and lost half my tooth. This was after a few threatening emails regarding my support for feminist activities on campus. Take care of yourselves and try not to go out alone.”
MIASsparked controversy after it announced it will host an event titled “What’s equality got to do with it? Feminism’s double standards.”
Don’t read the comments unless you’re feeling really, really ready to see a bunch of MRAs mansplain why we shouldn’t believe the victim (“she only SAYS it was a man who attacked her, police haven’t confirmed it!”) and why this is really feminism’s fault for wanting special rights and not being “”“equalists”“” like their enlightened selves.
OKAY, FOLKS, THIS IS FUCKING SERIOUS.
One of my best friends lived in Kingston, and she’s one of the main organizers against the MRA group of campus. Since she and her friends have begun organizing against this group, she’s gotten threatening/sexually explicit phone calls, several people have been physically harassed, and there’s been at least one assault (I’m being vague by my friend’s request).
There is serious shit going down in Kingston right now, and the people who are speaking out against the MRA group on campus are not safe.
Please, do not let this stay under the radar. The campus MRA group may or may not be involved in the harassment, but they’re definitely attracting the people who are.
And for everyone time we’ve laughed at how ridiculous MRAs are, remember: they can, and do, fucking hurt people.
why does this not have more notes?????
Right now, 500 light years away from Earth, there’s a planet that looks a lot like our own. It is bathed in dim orangeish light, which at high noon is only as bright as the golden hour before sunset back home.
NASA scientists are calling the planet Kepler-186f, and it’s unlike anything they’ve found. The big news: Kepler-186f is the closest relative to the Earth that researchers have discovered.
It’s the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star—the sweet spot between too-hot Mercury-like planets and too-cold Neptunes— and it is likely to give scientists their first real opportunity to seek life elsewhere in the universe. “It’s no longer in the realm of science fiction,” said Elisa Quintana, a researcher at the SETI Institute.
But if there is indeed life on Kepler-186f, it may not look like what we have here. Given the redder wavelengths of light on the planet, vegetation there would sprout in hues of yellow and orange instead of green.

"beat the pussy up"
"tear that ass up"
"smashed that shit"
Porn has created a fucked up mindset and you cannot tell me it hasn’t
It’s not okay when you see nothing but
"MONSTER DICK DESTROYS TEEN PUSSY"
"SLUTS POUNDED FOR HOURS"
There is no intimacy. There is no sensitivity
Just the vagina as a masturbation toy for the penis to use.
Not two or more human beings coming together and actually ENJOYING themselves.
Once again, Caucasian does not mean white, and using it to mean white is actually racist.
There are real Caucasian people who live in the Caucasus region, and they are not white."
