The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…

Okay I’m down with what you’re saying that women should definitely know and appreciate their own beauty but sculptures like this weren’t made for the lewd purposes you’re implying, they are to display the beauty of the human form. In short, the artist would have been on your side.

Man okay “male gaze” doesn’t necessarily imply “lewd purposes” literally all it means is the thing is done with a (straight) male audience and nobody else in mind. Generally that involves some “lewd purposes” because it’s easy as hell, but there are plenty of other ways to cater exclusively to men.
Also like the OP’s point (I think) was to celebrate women knowing and celebrating their own beauty, not being objectified by some creep-ass sculptor, which is not the same at all.

Gaza August 19,2014.

"Extended cease-fire ends. Airstrikes resume. More than 30 Palestinians injured and 2  killed in Gaza."

Israel’s Operation Protective Edge

  • 2,019 Palestinians killed [80% civilians] , including 542 children and 251 women from Israeli bombardment
  • 64 Israeli Soldiers killed in combat and 3 civilians
  • 10,223 Palestinians wounded, including 3,486 children and 1,970 women
  •  UNRWA has exhausted its capacity to absorb displaced persons, and overcrowding in shelters risks the outbreak of epidemics.
  • 122 Palestinian families have lost 3 or more members of their family.
  • UNICEF estimates about 373,000 Palestinian children have had some kind of direct traumatic experience and require immediate psycho-social support.
  • 1.5 million people in Gaza have limited or no access to water supplies. 26 health facilities have been damaged.
  • More than 485,000 internally displaced are in need of emergency food assistance.
  • Shelling and bombing have damaged 142 schools — 89 of them run by the United Nations — , and multiple Israeli strikes on Gaza’s only power plant and other infrastructure have left it beyond repair.The cost of reconstruction will run to “hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars,” - Pernille Ironside, the head of the Unicef office in Gaza

In response to the GoFundMe Campaign for Darren Wilson, people are asking GoFundMe to close the account due to the fact that it incites hate and obviously violates their terms and conditions

The donors and the comments attached to the campaign are sick and simply racist. They asking for the “Killing of Niggers”, “purging the savages” and to support a “fellow White” individual that has the right to murder Black people.

Pass this around. Report the Darren Wilson page as for the violation

http://www.gofundme.com/supportofficerwilson

I will add their contact info as soon as I find it. 

This is disgusting. He is almost at 200K in 4 days W T f is WRONG WITH PEOPLE

Acuudubillah

The Doctor wouldn’t.  He’d find another way.

and the thing is Moffat is 100% right because regardless of if he called himself “The Doctor” during the Time War he was still the Doctor deep deep down and in the end he saves lives, and he saved his people

"I lack the creativity to imagine characters being forced to make difficult choices, especially since my understanding of said characters is surface-deep at best. Sometimes I think about writing real emotional consequences to things, but then I remember how much easier it would be to avoid consequences whatsoever with some bizarre winding hole-filled plot. I am a professional writer who overcomes difficulty writing a scene by shoving in a contrived loophole so I don’t have to write it. Please punch me in the face."

As RTD wrote it, he didn’t save his people, he saved the rest of the universe from his people. by destroying them. A much more difficult and courageous thing to do.

Like, did he not watch the Tennant finale, The End of Time??? Where he reveals that the Time Lords had turned bad,

"Had turned bad"? Dude, the Doctor’s been railing against the Time Lords since at least the Sixth Doctor. During "Trial of a Time Lord", we find out they had destroyed nearly all life on Earth to protect their secrets. Hell, that’s WHY the Doctor was on trial; they knew he’d be pissed and were trying to get him out of the way.

Let’s be clear people: The Time Lords are NOT good guys. At ALL. And they haven’t been for a very long time. Frankly, the revelations in “The End of Time” are… not really that surprising when you look at the series over all, and some of the shit the Time Lords have pulled in the past.

"In all my travelling throughout the universe, I have battled against evil, against power-mad conspirators. I should have stayed here. The oldest civilisation: decadent, degenerate, and rotten to the core. Power-mad conspirators, Daleks, Sontarans, Cybermen - they’re still in the nursery compared to us. Ten million years of absolute power. That’s what it takes to be really corrupt.”

-The Doctor (The Ultimate Foe, 1986)

Reasons abortion should be fully covered on all insurance plans:

  • If you can’t afford an abortion, you definitely can’t afford a pregnancy
  • If you can’t afford an abortion, and are forced to carry a pregnancy to term anyway, you sure as hell can’t afford a child

Who the fuck do you think you’re really protecting here?

the patriarchy

Give the baby up for adoption. ☝️ if you’re forced to carry to full term..

Oh yeah go ahead and throw more children into foster care, because that solves everything, right?

like we definitely don’t already have an abundance of children who will probably never see happy homes, and an ever-growing number of white people who think it’s awesome to adopt children they’ve never met from other countries

he power to indict rests with local prosecutors and pliant grand juries, and as Jonathan Cohn has pointed out, a prosecutor will usually refrain from indicting altogether if the accused faces a low likelihood of conviction.

The young lady that was shot in the head by a police officer is still waiting to be interviewed by the police department
Ferguson Police claimed that 4 to 5 Black males conducted a drive by which resulted in a White woman being shot in the head. (Here, Here, Here)
(they’ve edited the articles to take out the white part and that she was killed hehehe)
Residents knew it was BS. 
Turns out Mya was shot by a police officer. The department forced surgeons to take the bullet out and took the bullet for “Ballistics”
Over a week later, she still has yet to be contacted by the department
Do not let her story go ignored

I’m confused if she was killed how can she be interviewed.

They (the police) were saying she was killed. 
She is very much alive
