Shit just got real fast didn’t it?
I hope dog-shaming never goes out of style.
Thousands Turn Out for Supreme Court Cases on Same-Sex Marriage
See more photos from today’s demonstrations by visiting the location page of the Supreme Court of the United States.
Today, the Supreme Court of the United States takes up the first of two high-profile cases on the issue of same-sex marriage, and thousands of people have turned out on the courthouse steps to make their opinions heard.
Today’s case, Hollingsworth v. Perry, involves a challenge to Proposition 8, a referendum passed in 2008 outlawing same-sex marriage in California. Tomorrow, the court will hear a case challenging the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), a 1996 law that prohibited the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriage for a host of federal purposes, including Social Security benefits, immigration and taxes.
I’ve had the nerd glaze for weeks…it’s so close I can taste it…less than a week…must…be….strong…..
LOL my take on people policing my body in a nutshell.
You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for you own pleasure.

This is super fucking relevant.
And why self portraits (selfies) are often such an act of self preservation and resistance.
selfies as politics, hell yeah.
#it’s okay to follow creepshots but when a celebrity’s nudes are leaked she’s a slut #it’s perfectly normal to watch objectifying porn but when a woman decides to film herself having sex she’s a whore #it’s alright for you to harass women on the street but when they approach you first it’s arrogance #it’s cool for you to fantasize about a woman who’s out of your league but when a woman you deem unattractive likes you you’re disgusted #no don’t worry you can make female bodies public property but when they discuss your masturbation habits you can be offended
I’ve reblogged this before but the commentary got better
It transcends time, space, age, race, size, religion, nationality, language, social and economical standing, gender, and species. Love is a glue that holds everything together. It is the greatest thing ever, and should be number one, but on this very historic day, I am posting it where it is as the very best thing ever. Those who don’t understand that love is universal have most likely never truly loved anything but themselves. To state that a person cannot join themselves legally to the person they love is absurd. Marriage is not a privilege reserved for any one group of people. It is a right, it is part of the “pursuit of happiness” to many people, and therefore withholding that right from someone just because their relationship makes you uncomfortable, or some long dead person scrawled it on a scroll a couple thousand years ago is so very wrong. I hope that the SCOTUS justices see this and do the right thing.
