i don’t know how to deal with this
I’m a writer not a murderer
Anonymous asked: Why are you so angry about JLaw's nudes being leaked? I thought you didn't like her.
- i am angry because this is just another example of women being shamed for taking nudes instead of the douchebag who spreads them being shamed for violating someone’s privacy like that
- i am angry because nobody deserves this, regardless of how i feel about their personality
- i am angry because this is pure misogyny and shows how women aren’t respected in our culture
- i am angry because she did not consent to having those pics posted everywhere but they still were
- i am angry because on the VERY RARE occasion this happens to a male celeb he is not shamed but rather the perpetrator is and it’s forgotten quickly whereas this will haunt jennifer for years and years to come
- i am angry because this was a sex crime and people are treating it like a joke
- i am angry because she is being exploited/objectified and some gross dudebros are probably jacking off to those pics
- i am angry because people are CONGRATULATING the fucker who did such an atrocious thing to her instead of being appalled
listen i may not like her personally but the fact remains that as a human being she is entitled to body autonomy and to choose who sees her naked body and who doesn’t
Samson has a tradition of inviting one artist to draw their covers for the calendar year. Sansuke Yamada was chosen as the cover artist for 2005, and his resulting illustrations are truly beautiful!
This guy is doing a series in Comic Beam now and I think it’s just great.
true friendship is going from “look at these cute shoes” to “do you like being choked sexually” in under ten minutes

"I think it is very important to see one’s self in the Scripture so that it may become real in their eyes," Lewis told The Huffington Post. "The whitewashing of the Bible has always bothered me. However I’m happy to now have the opportunity to give a different point of view."
"I wish to exhibit a splash of color onto the biblical pages of history with my creative embellishments. By doing so I hope to open the minds and eyes of the ignorant and create open conversations of how we can learn to see the world through colorful lenses. After all, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is intended for everyone."
For those who’d like to see the entire collection, “Icons Of The Bible” will on display from November 2014 to February 2015 in Atlanta, GA.
-waits for white people to flip shit-
King David and me have naked things to discuss.
Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police in recent years.
Good or evil. Black or white. Pirates or marines.
Too bad there are only shades of gray.
Which side will you choose?

What distinguishes One Piece among the prominently unopposed manga as of late (ie, the Big Three) is its ability to incorporate a number of mature, diverse themes rather realistically, while still somehow retaining a level of extraordinary entertainment without crossing into the borders of mindless, gory, bloody violence. Friendship, loss, discovery, tears are only among the very few. However, there is one subject/theme that is grossly overlooked due to its unspeakably enormous influence on the entire series in general, and yet is almost so invisible as a pushing force that one has to squint to see it the majority of the time: the sides.
One Piece does not conform to the monotonously stereotypical divisions of good and evil. There is no singular, major force that controls the darkness of the plot, and neither is there one force that heralds the saving light. It is relatable in the sense of distinct perspectives; what one would typically expect from a seemingly straightforward plot line is plunged into an abyss of dizzying turmoil. The protagonist is a pirate - selfish and yet passionately firm in his beliefs. Is it not a shallow assumption to say that the protagonist is a ‘good guy’, when pirates have generally been labeled with a less-than-apt reputations in history books? On the other side, the antagonist is the government - justice-bound and almost deliriously so. Again, is it not a shallow assumption to say that the antagonist (look up: a character who opposes the protagonist) is a ‘bad guy’, when the government only acts for the general well-being of its citizens?
But one cannot forget the pirates become the ‘bad guys’. Pirates become the ‘good guys’. The government becomes the ‘good guys’. The government becomes the ‘bad guys’.
… All depending on perspective. The question becomes: for whose means and for what purpose do they act as they do?
So really, are the pirates - like Luffy, who has acted out only for the sake of his nakama, or like Hody, who wished only to establish a dominance over the inferior human race - the bad guys? Are the marines - like Lucci, whose idea of justice is to eliminate weakness so as not to possibly provoke a precursor to further failures in the future, or like Coby, who is somewhat idealistically naive and yet open-minded about befriending the ‘enemy’ - the bad guys? Would it even be right to definitively categorize and limit either side to black and white?
Luffy. Hody. Shanks. Blackbeard. Law.
Lucci. Coby. Kuma. Garp. Kizaru.
Can you choose a side, when there aren’t any to begin with?
