The thing I like most about racebending is that certain themes and messages change when certain characters races are changed. I think in MMFD there is a narrative about self care, self esteem, self actualization, and self acceptance that you don’t see with black women in media.
We don’t tell black girls that it’s ok to be hurt sometimes. We don’t help heal the ones who hurt. We just tell them to get over it.
MTV needs to make this happen.
AYYYYEEE I could be so behind this. MMFD having an all white cast was one of the ways it fails as a show. So if MTV were to cast some POC for the main characters especially the female lead, now THAT would be really interesting. That has potential to be really awesome!
I am totally into this! Even though it would never happen!
I could get behind this version of MMFD. I really could.
GOD YES PLEASE MAKE THIS SHOW BW REALITY
"You are the goddang whitest person I’ve ever seen."
Now if Hank fuckin hill is telling you this shit….
Death records show that American Indian and Alaska Native death rates for both men and women combined were nearly 50 percent greater than rates among non-Hispanic whites during 1999-2009. The new findings were announced through a series of Centers Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports recently released online by theAmerican Journal of Public Health.
Correct reporting of American Indian and Alaska Native death rates has been a persistent challenge for public health experts. Previous studies showed that nearly 30 percent of American Indian and Alaska Native persons who identify themselves as American Indian and Alaska Native when living are classified as another race at the time of death.
- Among American Indian and Alaska Native people, cancer is the leading cause of death followed by heart disease. Among other races, it is the opposite.
- Death rates from lung cancer have shown little improvement in American Indian and Alaska Native populations. American Indian and Alaska Native people have the highest prevalence of tobacco use of any population in the United States.
- Suicide rates were nearly 50 percent higher for American Indian and Alaska Native people compared to non-Hispanic whites, and more frequent among American Indian and Alaska Native males and persons younger than age 25.
- Death rates were higher among American Indian and Alaska Native infants compared to non-Hispanic whites infants. Sudden infant death syndrome and unintentional injuries were more common. American Indian and Alaska Native infants were four times more likely to die from pneumonia and influenza.
- By region, the greatest death rates were in the Northern Plains and Southern Plains. The lowest death rates were in the East and the Southwest.
The report concludes that patterns of mortality are strongly influenced by the high incidence of diabetes, smoking prevalence, problem drinking, and health-harming social determinants. Many of the observed excess deaths can be addressed through evidence-based public health interventions.

BESLEEVE YOURSELF, STRUMPET
“BESLEEVE YOURSELF, STRUMPET”
i think about this video almost every day and i am so frightened of it
I cannot believe this…
My boyfriend and I wanted to make a blowjob video, and we decided that I should be handcuffed and blindfolded for it. I have a horrible gag reflex and couldn’t stop choking and gagging on his cock! I suck and slurp as he grabs me by the back of the head and pushes me down until I finally convince him to take off my handcuffs so I can use my hands and mouth at the same time. Finally he cums all over my face and hair, and by the end I’m such a mess ;)
HHHNNNNGGGG THE CONSENT IN THIS GIF SET ALMOST HAS ME IN TEARS SO PERFECT
Seriously, this gifset is full of hot and awesome.
It demonstrates how negotiation can be foreplay, and how porn can be educational in GOOD ways!! Yay!
Hot, respectful, consensual.
Abled people complain about disabled people needing accommodations, because “in the real world there are no accommodations”.
But abled people receive accommodations all the time. Cars are an accommodation for those who can’t run a steady speed of 60 mph. Stairs are an accommodation for those who can’t jump from one story to the next. Phones are an accommodation for those who can’t communicate telepathically. Calculators are an accommodation for those who can’t do large math problems in their head. Lights are an accommodation for those who can’t see in the dark. Stoves are an accommodation for those who can’t heat things with their eyes. Clocks are an accommodation for those who can’t tell what time it is just by the position of the sun. Jackets are an accommodation for those who are susceptible to frostbite when it’s cold.
Abled people receive accommodations all the time, but since it’s considered socially acceptable to need those accommodations, they’re not considered accommodations. But imagine if you lived in a world where you needed those accommodations but most people didn’t. That’s what it feels like to be disabled.
This is an incredibly important post. As one of my favourite professors said, “Technology is not innocent." As in, all technology had to be designed by a human being. And chances are, if that human being had any biases or assumptions that could be translated into the technology they created, they probably wound up in there. Practically everything is designed specifically for abled people. Think about cars, for example. Could you drive a car one-handed? Well, yeah, very likely, but since most people have two hands, they designed the cars to use both hands. Two hands to grip the steering wheel, buttons and levers on both sides of said wheel, etc. There is nothing that says cars are better when you design them for one specific degree of physical wellness, but yet that is exactly how they’re designed. This extends to virtually everything human-made you see. I do mean everything.
So for the love of heaven, please don’t whine and complain when you see disabled people of any variety getting “special accommodations.” All technological design is purposeful. Every piece of technology you see was designed to accommodate someone. If you’re lucky enough to be accommodated by something’s most common design, don’t be an ass to people who would be better served by an alternate version.
and these are the men women are suppose to call when raped. what is this rape culture you speak of ?
this makes me so mad not every fucking cop is a rapist
“Police sexual misconduct is common, and anyone who maintains it isn’t doesn’t get it,” says retired Seattle police chief Norm Stamper, author of the book Breaking Rank. Since no one is investing resources in learning how many victims are out there, we’re left with estimates and news accounts. As part of a 2008 study, former police officer Tim Maher, a criminologist at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, asked 20 police chiefs whether police sexual misconduct was a problem; 18 responded in the affirmative. The 13 chiefs willing to offer estimates thought an average of 19 percent of cops were involved—if correct, that translates to more than 150,000 police officers nationwide. An informal effort by the Cato Institute in 2010 to track the number of police sexual-misconduct cases just in news stories counted 618 complaints nationwide that year, 354 of which involved forcible nonconsensual sexual activity like sexual assault or sexual battery.
It was nothing short of a nightmare — a man obsessively tracking women, sneaking into their homes, assaulting them, and forcing them to perform a bizarre “cleansing” ritual that washed away any hint of evidence from their bodies. Bloomington, Ill., Police Detective Clay Wheeler spent two years pursuing the first serial rapist in his town’s memory.
“I’ve seen more brutal things, more violent things, but some of the things that happened and what he would say and tell these girls as he’s assaulting them, and I mean, I get chills. It just disgusts me,” he said.
According to the 3rd Quarter Report of The National Police Misconduct Statistics and Reporting Project, police officers were accused of sexual assault at a rate of 79 per 100,000 law enforcement personal. The rate of accusations for the general public is 28.7 per 100,000 general public. When corrected for gender these numbers tell us that there are 1.5 times more accusations of sexual assualt among male law enforcement officers than among the general male population. The fact that rapists seem to be concentrated among a group of armed individuals who have the purported authority to detain and arrest other individuals should be more than a little alarming for even the most prolific police bootlicker. In just the last month, several stories of officers committing disgusting crimes have been in the news.
and these are the people supposedly “helping” sex workers; these are the people with the power to “rescue” us.
The fact that accusations are higher for officers than for the general populations makes me worry that rates of offense are MUCH higher from officers than the general population, since being assaulted by an officer is a strong disincentive against making an accusation, all other rape culture factors aside…
There is a person in this damn thread who cares more about the reputations of cops than they do about the point of this post. Fuckin hell.
Invisible people: Blacks in Egypt
Forty-five tribes have populated Egypt’s deserts for millennia and yet their existence remains a mystery(lol they know we there they just want to crush us..the arab is worst than the devil in Afrika) to the country’s urban masses.

Sexual Assault at Brown University: Stand Up For Lena
On April 22, 2014 at 11:00 AM, Brown University students and Providence community members gathered in support of Lena Sclove. Here is her story.
We stand in solidarity with Lena Sclove and survivors at Brown University [content warning: rape, suffocation, battery]
During the evening of August 2, 2013, Brown University student, Lena Sclove, was raped and choked by a former friend, also a Brown University student. A Brown University Disciplinary Panel found that the reported rapist was responsible for four violations of the Brown University code of student conduct, including sexual misconduct involving one or more of the following: penetration, violent physical force, or injury. On October 18, 2013, Lena Sclove was informed that the reported rapist would be allowed to return to campus in less than a year; Fall, 2014. The reported rapist and his victim will be students in good standing at Brown University in the Fall of 2014. It is unfathomable and unacceptable that Lena Sclove will be forced to live in constant fear of her reported rapist while she completes her studies at Brown University, and Brown University will be called on to permanently bar the reported rapist from campus.

THE STATE of Tennessee is about to establish a dangerous new precedent in the war on women.
Both houses of the state legislature recently passed SB 1391, a bill that would sanction women’s arrest and incarceration on the basis of the outcomes of their pregnancies. If Gov. Bill Haslam does not veto the measure, it would be the first law in the U.S. to criminalize pregnant women for the use of illegal or prescription drugs.
Supporters of reproductive rights are trying to pressure Haslam into stopping SB 1391 from becoming law.
Since the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion, hundreds of pregnant women have suffered unwanted medical interventions, arrests and incarcerations, based on a range of flimsy assertions about the health of their pregnancies—very often without legal or medical grounding for the claim that the women were responsible for harming a fetus or newborn.
National Advocates for Pregnant Women (NAPW) compiled a groundbreaking report showing how these cases amount to what NAPW Executive Director Lynn Paltrow has termed the “New Jane Crow”—a reference to author Michelle Alexander’s best-selling book on racism and mass incarceration, The New Jim Crow.
Many Richmond public schools are in a state of embarrassing disrepair. Many of our buildings are aged but some are worse off than others.
Carver Elementary School has a rodent infestation.
At Fairfield Court Elementary School a ceiling tile fell on a student.
The ceilings at Thompson Middle School leak tar tainted water.
Armstrong High School has been infiltrated by both rodents and snakes.
These conditions continue to worsen as time passes and are simply disregarded by school officials, City Hall, the mayor, and many others. Funds could be allocated to repair our dilapidated schools (as was done for the Redskins training camp) if those in charge saw it as a priority. Instead however, the officials of Richmond brush off the needs of RPS students. We are not their priority. They fail to see the value in our education or even our general well-being. They must be reminded of our numbers so that they may see our value.
Join walk out on April 28, 2014. Help us show our city the faces of those they neglect.
**For students of Open High School we will walk out of class at 8:30 and walk together to city hall. If you do not attend Open please meet us in front of city hall at 9:00 for the protest. Feel free to bing posters or signs but remember this is a peaceful protest!
