Okay so let me get this straight:
Tumblr loved Jennifer Lawrence until it became a Social Justice Requirement to adore Lupita Nyong’o, and at that point Tumblr had to make a choice because it’s impossible to appreciate two women without pitting them against each other.
So sick of these bullshit Oppression Olympics dichotomies where everybody falls all over themselves to prove how much they love the least privileged celebrity in a small, arbitrarily-selected pool of celebrities.
So sick of stories about white males’ adolescence, especially ones constructed largely around his thrilling and elusive quest to acquire access to a girl’s body.
Honestly these stories make me feel like when I was a teenager, unbeknownst to me, my girl friends and I were like a herd of gazelles and the boys were always watching us from the tall grass waiting to pounce on the weakest one of us. And that is retroactively pretty creepy and disappointing.
why do teenage boys care about if a girl is a virgin or not like are you that eager to be the first to disappoint me
no but for real tho

why is an Indian-American woman playing a Latina on this show tho
like they explicitly stated she was Latina
why wouldn’t you either
a) cast an actual Latina, as if there aren’t plenty of Latina actresses who could play the part perfectly (I can think of several off the top of my head)
b) make the character actually Indian-American
I asked this same question last year. Like, she doesn’t even look Latina wtf??? Would it have been so hard to change the character’s last name??
Oh my god, I just found out Sony isn’t going to make VAIO laptops anymore. I fucking love VAIOs.
What the hell kind of laptop am I gonna buy next? Is everything going to goddamn tablets and phablets and smartphones? Will it even be possible three years from now to buy an affordable, well-designed laptop that can handle actual computery things like video editing instead of just mindless entertainment apps?
Oh my god, JP accepted the Grammy for “From This Valley” and didn’t even thank Joy for helping write it?!
Man fuck him tbh. So childish.
After reading an NPR segment featuring a cheery grandmother as the face of anti-abortion protestors, clinic escort Erin Matson decided to show the truth behind the innocent facade. Click through for more first-person accounts of anti-choice harassment and terrorism.
From the biorobotics lab at Carnegie Mellon University comes this modular snake robot. According to the researchers, using the form of a snake allows the robot to navigate freely in many different environments, including networks of pipes and the gaps between walls. It can also climb stairs and trees.
This is actually really scary. This is the robot that sneaks into people’s homes, hides in dark corners and follows people around in futuristic movies. This is the surveillance tech of the future.
