LOOK AT THIS AFFECTIONATE WOMBAT!!! (Borrowed from @friendswithyou)
New Zealand Parliament passes gay marriage bill — and a love song. If this doesn’t bring a tear to your eye, you’re made of stone.
i fucking quit
I can’t wait for the singularity and also I’d like to change my outlook for it from “utopian wonderland” to “computer overlords eviscerate all millennials”.
Made rebloggable by request :)
Pretty much summarises every single ‘discussion’ I’ve had with MRA dudes online. Except they weren’t this articulate.
Anonymous asked: I love how you don't hesitate to speak your mind on your blog! Please keep doing it. In a world seemingly full of rape apologists voices like yours are just too few and far between. I actually feel like tearing my hair out at the things I read and hear people say.
I feel like doing the same thing. I sat and cried when I read the articles about all these poor girls. I don’t understand the world sometimes.
Yet another teenage girl has killed herself after photos from her sexual assault were spread online by her ‘friends’. So this is a thing now: bullying rape victims. Well done world, you officially suck. I wrote a post about this, I’m so enraged. [Content note: discussion of rape and sexual assault]
"I particularly congratulate the IPA and its marvelous director, John Roskam, for your work in defence of Western civilisation. Contemporary Australia has well and truly - and rightly - left behind the old cult of forgetfulness about our indigenous heritage. Alas, there is a new version of the great Australian silence – this time about the Western canon, the literature, the poetry, the music, the history and above all the faith without which our culture and our civilisation are unimaginable."
faaaaaaaaaaaarken hell Abbott’s address to the Institute of Public Affairs late last week is horrible. That’s right, guys. For too long in Australia we have been awash in pervasive indigenous culture. Open any book, any newspaper, any TV, and it’s just covered with references to indigenous culture and heritage, while the poor widdle Western canon is left alone and forgotten, alongside repeats of The Big Bang Theory on a special interest station with limited coverage.
Seriously. Fuck me.
Yeah we literally never hear about the same 10 or so old white Australian playwrights/filmmakers/musical artists. Feel so sorry for them :((((
there will never be another tweet as good as this

i like to google world’s biggest something because it always results in a cool animal or a neat looking food but WORLDS BIGGEST ONION found this guy with his big onion and he’s so happy! thats a really great onion. best world’s biggest thing so far.
The pride and the happiness in this man’s face is inspiring. If only we could all find our own “giant onion” I think the world would be a much nicer place.
I worry that I will never be as stoked as this chap and his onion mate :(
AND STAY OUT!!
