In a matter of hours on Friday, Typhoon Haiyan completely devastated parts of the central Philippines. It was one of the strongest storms ever recorded. The death toll is estimated up to 10,000 with hundreds of thousands more displaced. The country has declared a “state of calamity.”

I’m sure a lot of you heard about the super typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan and how it devastated parts of the Philippines. Many Filipinos lost their homes, their possessions, and some, even their loved ones.
This is a call for help! If you’re here in the Philippines, you can help by donating clothes, food, and water. Monetary donations are also accepted, both local and international (you can donate online).
Rappler has provided an extensive and informative list of places (or online sites) where you can donate, just go here: “#ReliefPH: Victims of Typhoon Yolanda need your help”.
Here’s a shortcut for people outside of the Philippines: RAPPLER LINK FOR OVERSEAS/ONLINE DONATIONS.
Please do help. A little goes a long way!
Robin Thicke is on his way to becoming the holder of the slot for #1 most popular song of all time. He is only 4 weeks from overtaking artists such as Elton John, Whitney Houston, and Mariah Carrey, and he’s already beaten Elvis fucking Presley.
Please stop listening to Blurred Lines. Stop watching the video. Stop buying the single. Just stop. For all that is good and holy in this world, do not do this to the history of music.
I haven’t even heard of him until the VMAs. And I haven’t heard his song.

I am seriously outraged right now. I went into school today and was sent to the principal’s office not even 5 minutes inside the building. I was asked if I had any other clothes with me to which I responded I did not and was told I would NOT be sent to my classes if I didn’t call someone to come bring me clothes.
I told her that my mother is the only one who lives with me and that she was at work and could not come bring me clothes.
To which she responded
“Well I’m not sending you to your classes like that, you can come into my office and do some work but unless we get a parental figure to come bring you clothes you will not be going to class, it’s too much of a distraction and offensive to your fellow students.”
excuse me but what is so offensive about my shorts. I have worn this outfit numerous times during the school year, and only now that it has started to get nice outside have they been stricter on what the girls in this high school wear.
DO YOU KNOW HOW HOT IT FUCKING IS OUTSIDE.
The office called my mom and told her that “my way of dressing could be offensive or distracting to the students and most importantly, the teachers.”
I’m a junior in high school, but just because i’m a junior does NOT MEAN I WILL STAND FOR YOUR BULLSHIT SLUT-SHAMING AND SEXIST DRESS CODE.
Instead of telling the girls to feel victimized and shamed for what they wear, like tell your shitty staff to stop being such perverts and to look away and seriously, if they have such issues with my clothing that they can’t help themselves then why are you allowed to be a teacher in the first place.
My body is not something to be ashamed of, and I will not “change” to fit into your shit society of misogynistic ideals.
I will. wear. what. I choose.
here’s what I think about your shit dress code:
do you guys remember this cute video of a poodle walking on its hind legs?
well, in order for the puppy to learn this, its owner trained it by yelling, cursing, hitting, and throwing it. simply to gain internet fame.
video proof can be found here. warning: it is very hard to watch, but this puppy deserves justice.
if you’d like to act, here is a link to a petition
more people need to know the truth behind this “cute walking puppy”
I don’t understand why anyone would resort to this method to train a puppy or any sort of animal. He’s lucky that the dog didn’t bite him since it’s more than willing to learn and make its master proud. Ugh. What a sick bastard.
Also, not sure if it’s the same dog, but sign the petition nonetheless to capture that Malaysian jerk of a guy! :|
here’s a screen cap of a correspondence between a woman named telisha cobb and senator campfield, who is at the forefront of tennessee’s “don’t say gay” bill (actually called the classroom protection act), a bill which would require teachers, counselors, etc. to inform parents if their children are gay, or even if they ~appear~ to be gay. (here is some more information about it.) she posted it on her facebook (easier to read!) and is urging others to share it so the word can get out about what an unbelievable asshole this dude is (if it wasn’t already obvious enough).
in case you’re having trouble reading the screen cap, it says:
I am writing to you as a mother, active citizen and born & raised Tennessean. You are an embarrassment to our great state. Folks all over the country and here in Tennessee are looking at the bills that you are proposing in shock. They are the most ignorant and morally lacking legislation that could be proposed this year. It is clear that you are targeting homosexuals and low income families with hogwash legislation. You need to search your heart, your values and your Christianity to find a better way to represent us as a whole. We will do everything in our power to make sure you are not here in 2014. There are numerous grass root parties that are making their voices heard.
his super classy response to her email reads:
You seem to have some serious, deep anger issues. Have you ever thought about therapy? I hear they are doing some wonderful things with medication these days.
Yours in service,
Sen. Stacey Campfield
like come on. you’ve gotta be kidding me here.
so! if you wouldn’t mind reblogging this and spreading the word, that would be great! telisha wants others to spread this around as much as they possibly can. this is a totally inappropriate and unprofessional way of addressing criticism and more people need to know about this dude and what he’s trying to pull.
people from steubenville are complaining on cnn about their town looking bad because of the rape of that girl and the people in the town attempting to cover it up because the boys were football stars
your town should look bad
it cares more about sports than the safety of its citizens
ALSO there’s a White House petition to make everyone involved face trial in a higher court. Obviously I can’t sign (not a US citizen) but I figured I’d pass word around.
SIGN THE PETITION, my American followers!
A lot of the animals PETA kills (and they kill over 95% of the animals they take in at their Virginia Headquarters) are killed within 24 hours. Not nearly enough time to deem whether an animal is adoptable or not. They even bought a giant fridge to store the corpses!
PETA is a corporation. Not a charity. Less than 1% of their 32 Million+ annual budget actually goes to directly helping animals. Most of it is spent making sexist/racist/ domestic abuse supporting commercials that won’t even air on television, giving bail outs to convicted arsonists and criminals, hiring/supporting any celebrity that claims to be vegetarian for five minutes, creating campaigns to target children (“Your mom kills animals”), fruitless lawsuits like suing Sea World for violating the constitution, and most recently, making porn. I’m not against porn, but I fail to see how it fucking helps animals.
PETA does not give a shit about animals.
