WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH STRAIGHT BOYS
i am literally shrieking with laughter over this
A client who accidentally CC’d me in an email to his colleague after inquiring about a project. (via clientsfromhell)

HOLY FUCKING SHIT TUMBLR ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!?! tumblr, this is why you need to not with your ridiculous recommended blogs bullshit. you put fucking nazis on my dashboard. FUCKING NAZIS ON MY MOTHERFUCKING DASHBOARD. I am beyond livid. staff you need to remove this feature. this is unacceptable.
staff this is not at all acceptable and cannot be allowed to continue. stop this. people are being recommended actual nazi blogs. I personally have been recommended untagged posts about rape threats and posts that contain depictions of graphic violence and mentions of rape, all untagged. people don’t feel safe on tumblr. this is a serious problem and the staff need to fix it.
Blogs I’ve BLOCKED have been “recommended” on my dash I mean come the fuck on
P.S. The real world isn’t going to accommodate you and your “comfort.” When you get off Tumblr, there aren’t any trigger warnings. Wearing a nametag with your “gender identity” on it would be absolutely laughable. You’ll have to learn to be an adult and deal with people without being psychotic and wishing death on them.
Pretty sure foods are required to have allergy warnings and movies/videogames/etc. have ratings complete with specifying if there’s graphic violence or just a couple of curse words…
Hell even on the news they’ll say something if they’re about to show an especially disturbing clip. The news. The thing everyone watches for the purpose of learning about everything that’s happening, including the bad things.
Example: If they’re about to share a 911 call with domestic abuse clearly audible, you’re at least going to hear “This is the call that prompted police to come to the scene”. That is warning enough to make you turn off/mute the tv, or change the channel, or leave the room if you want to. No news station is going to go “There was a domestic dispu—*SUDDEN JUMP TO GRAPHIC VIDEO EVIDENCE COMPLETE WITH VICTIM SCREAMING INTO THE PHONE FOR HELP*”. The station would get in trouble for that. A lot of trouble.
Yeah, there are some things that are hard to avoid, but you know what these “psychotic” people you keep complaining about do? Avoid those things as best as they can. It’s not always easy. That’s part of why people like things like tumblr, BECAUSE things like trigger warnings or at the very least relevant tags that make it possible to take a break from the outside world.
Oh and your gender identity jab. I’m cis so I’ll use my sexuality as an example here. Let’s see. In the “real world”, even saying in passing that a girl is cute is dangerous if I’m not careful about when, where, and who I say it around. I need to nod and smile if a stranger on the bus starts talking about “Oh, you saw the new Captain America movie? Isn’t Chris Evans hot? I bet you wish your boyfriend looked like him, haha!” Saying “Yeah I guess, I’m more attracted to Scarlett Johannson though” could actually end in me being yelled at, hit, stalked, or even murdered. If not by that person, then by someone else on the bus.
Hell, even saying “I don’t have a boyfriend” can piss some people off, because they immediately assume a young woman without a man must be a dyke. So on tumblr, where most people can only type some nasty messages and hope they make me sad, hell fucking yeah I’m going to “flaunt” who I am and make sure I let people know they’re wrong if they assume I’m straight. It’s one of the only places I can do so without having to be scared.
And if I go to the one place I can normally admit I exist without fear only to see people encouraging me to “Shut up and deal with the real world” when I say I’m tired of the real world treating me as subhuman, I might get a little ~psychotic~. Maybe you need to grow up and deal with that.
A 400-pound asthmatic Staten Island dad died Thursday after a cop put him in a chokehold and other officers appeared to slam his head against the sidewalk, video of the incident shows.
“I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!” Eric Garner, 43, repeatedly screamed after at least five NYPD officers took him down in front of a Tompkinsville beauty supply store when he balked at being handcuffed.
Within moments Garner, a married father of six children with two grandchildren, stopped struggling and appeared to be unconscious as police called paramedics to the scene. An angry crowd gathered, some recording with smartphones.
“When I kissed my husband this morning, I never thought it would be for the last time,” Garner’s wife, Esaw, told the Daily News.
She got no details from police until after she had gone to the hospital to identify his body, she said.
“I saw him with his eyes wide open and I said, ‘Babe, don’t leave me, I need you.’ But he was already gone,” she said.
and people wonder why black people don’t trust or have any love for cops. they murdered this man. this black man. and for what? fucking cigarettes. yea, WE’RE the fucking problem.
Nypd police are a plague on society.
It’s easy actually
This happened not far from where I live. These cops are from the 120th precinct, and that precinct is notorious for this type of bullshit. It’s just that there usually isn’t video footage of their crimes. That said, this isn’t the first time they have killed before. One case that made the headlines back in the 90s was a young Black man they killed named Ernest Sayon. His parents were Liberian immigrants. Police said he “suffered a head injury” and just died at the hospital. No explanation. They said he was struggling and hit his head. The truth is that they viciously beat him up in his own apartment and he died because of it. People took to the streets in protest. The 120th precinct also has a holding cell and people have mysteriously died or committed suicide in there. These alleged suicides are always the same. Hanging in their cell. Those rarely make the news, and if they do, it doesn’t get coverage beyond the local Staten Island advance newspaper. Essentially, no one hears about it. If the victim has priors or is a felon, then you’ll definitely not here about it. Society tends to be uncaring towards victims who are felons.
The police here do “sweeps” where they will literally canvas a neighborhood and arrest dozens of Black men in the hopes that one of them has an outstanding warrant for something. They do it because they have quotas to fill. They are especially vicious in certain neighborhoods here like Park Hill, Stapleton, West Brighton, New Brighton, Tompkinsville, Arlington and Mariners Harbor. They operate like a gang. Also, plainclothes officers never identify themselves and they instigate on purpose. Conflicts arise because they never identify themselves as cops and they just start harassing people. People respond to what they rightfully assume is an attack and they arrest them for “assaulting an officer” and “resisting arrest”. They do whatever they like.
This is the reason why they were brazen about literally choking Eric Garner in public in broad day light. This is how they act and they get away with it. Staten Island is a bit different from the other 4 NYC boroughs. It’s the most outwardly hostile in terms of race relations. The North Shore is predominantly Black and Brown (though white people live here too). The South Shore is predominantly white. Black folks here know not to go to the South Shore alone, especially at night. Unless you’re a student athlete who plays football on one of the high school teams. Then you can bring your black ass over!
Outside of Black & Brown communities, the NYPD is heavily supported here. Every Italian and Irish person here seems to have a dad, brother, uncle, cousin or best friend who is a cop. Judges are their friends. District attorneys are their buddies. The guy who owns the local bar is the lieutenant’s brother-in-law. Some other guy’s grandfather knew the sergeant’s family back in the old country (Italy) etc. That’s how it goes. You’re just not going to win against these people. It’s a system and it goes beyond the cops. They’re all connected. The white folks here are compliant because these cops are their kin and they protect them at all costs, even when they kill.
Do you remember Justin Volpe? He was the cop who shoved a broomstick up Abner Louima's rectum. His crimes were so brutal that even he couldn't get away with it. Volpe is from Staten Island. He just worked at a Brooklyn precinct. Volpe got big time support here. His family is still here. They are “pillars of the community”.
I’ve been stopped and frisked here in the past so many times, particularly in the St. George area that one of the cops felt bad after a while because he realized he was stopping me all the time. The cops in the St. George area as well as the Staten Island ferry terminal with the K9 units are basically stationed there. The last time this cop stopped me, he just let me go. He didn’t do the routine pat down (including grabbing my junk), emptying my pockets, searching my bag and generally just wasting my time. I suppose he had some remnants of humanity left because he got ashamed that he was constantly harassing me. He was one of the “nice ones” I guess. His constant harassment and rummaging through my camera bag that yielded nothing but my camera and lenses embarrassed him. I never argue with cops (I’m not arguing with people that have guns), so even when they were rude and rough, I kept my cool. Plus, the St. George cops often have dogs. Not trying to get bit or shot.
I know the Staten Island cop mentality well. I went to school with them. I played football with and against them. All the degenerates, lowlifes, racists and scumbags I knew are now either cops or correction officers. The thing is this though, when you point this out, some apologist (always white) will start talking about how it’s “not all cops” and that some are good etc. This doesn’t matter. The system they serve is corrupt. They work with arrest quotas, which means they will violate and brutalize people to make numbers, including choking a man in broad day light until he dies.
I don’t expect anything major to happen to these cops that killed Mr. Garner. There will be an “internal investigation”, which just means their drinking buddies will overlook the case, maybe put them on desk duty or suspend them with pay. That’s how it goes.
The NYPD also have a habit of doing absolutely fuck-all if you actually call for help. I still remember some guys trying to grab me when I was in the subway station closest to my high school, in plain view of an officer and of the police station down there, and my screaming and running to say what happened and ask for help was met with a blank stare. She just turned around and walked away from a child who was potentially the victim of an attempted fucking kidnapping.
Sure, they could have been assholes who thought cornering a 15-year-old half their size against a wall and making an obvious grabbing movement just to scare her was funny, which is what I kept telling myself to rationalize her shitty behavior. Maybe she knew them or something, I thought. But in that case it would still be a good idea to say “I know those dudes they just like pretending to assault little girls calm down” or something. Which is something I still think should warrant telling them to not fucking do because it isn’t funny in the slightest.
That last one is actually pretty brutal.
My parents are both pastors and once I was fucking this one dude who’s dad was the pastor of the rival church and he whispered ‘talk biblical to me’ so i started reciting Psalms 23 and we ended up getting into a competition of who could recite the most bible versus before they cummed
you need less jesus
Every time I go downstairs to the laundry room, this pigeon tries to seduce me.
"we have incompatible genitals" is now my favorite excuse.
You would think that teenagers would be the rudest customers when really it’s mostly old, middle-aged people.
Teens always look terrified as customers.
I’ve barely been a cashier 4 months and I’ve already accepted this as a fact of life. It’s the older middle-aged people like 97% of the time, and it’s depressing because you think they’d know better.
If they show sports events at bars why don’t they show tv shows?
someone should get to making a fandom bar.
no but can you imagine? fandom themed drinks, tv show maraton nights, discount to cosplayers, and special season finale events.WHY ISNT THIS A THING??!!
because none of you ever leave the house nor are you old enough to drink
update: This post may soon become a reality.. and by none other than the poster itself.
There’s the Waystation in Brooklyn, NY! Well, there aren’t discounts to cosplayers, but there’s a lot of fandom stuff, mostly Doctor Who. Themed drinks for other shows come up when there are viewings of those shows. Also, the bathroom is a TARDIS.
I am…not too sure what’s up with that one comment, do they think people just stop being interested in anything but taxes and sports when they turn 21, even if they weren’t big into sports to start with?? I mean come on I still get my dad “fandom” stuff for his birthday and Christmas and he gets fucking ecstatic about it. He’s 59.
Brushie brushie appreciation post
one day this will get 20k notes it will be my greatest achievement
My least favorite thing is straight men who come into lush and act like it’s a direct attack on their manhood coming up to me like “I’m in here for my girlfriend” ok thanks for confirming your heterosexuality everyone who likes soap is usually gay
