Apparently, in an attempt to paint Michael Brown as anything less than innocent, people have been spreading an image of an armed 17-year-old Joda Cain around the web and claiming that it’s Michael Brown.

Joda Cain is accused of murder in my home state of Oregon, and has literally jack shit to do with the Michael Brown murder in Ferguson, Missouri. THESE ARE NOT THE SAME PEOPLE. Anyone using the above image as “proof” that Michael Brown “deserved” to be shot should be called out for defamation, and promptly thrown down a spiral staircase. 

The bottom photo is the real Michael Brown. He was called a “gentle giant” by friends and family. He was unarmed and innocent, and he was murdered by a police officer after being shot more than seven times at close range. Witnesses, including a friend who was with him at the time of the shooting, all agree that he was doing nothing deserving of such violent actions from the officer who gunned him down. 

what’s wrong with people


What the fucks happening in Ferguson? from sunvapor

Alright, i’m gonna sit down and basically explain the situation in this ask so everyone of my followers knows why i’m so pissed.

Michael Brown, a 17 - 18 year old african american boy was unlawfully shot (8-10 times supposedly) by police in St Louis, Missouri on saturday, august 9th, 2014. He was unarmed, and had done nothing to attract suspicion other than the fact that he was black. His body was left in the street for 4 hours. (beware: somewhat graphic image linked)

There are several claims from witnesses (see: Dorian Johnson’s account and video [HIGHLY RECOMMEND READING UP ON HIS ACCOUNT, ITS VERY SPECIFIC] — Brown’s friend who experienced the situation first hand, La’Toya Cash and Phillip Walker— Ferguson residents nearby the incident),  that fall together in generally close claims. However, the only one who’s claim seems out of place is the police officer’s who shot Brown. Who, by the way, is put off on paid administrative leave AND who’s name remained under anonymity for his safety (However, attorney Benjamin Crump is looking for a way to force release his name). He claims that Brown began to wrestle the officer for his gun and tried attacking him after he told Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson (22) to “get the f*ck on the sidewalk”.

According to Johnson, after a minor confrontation on the officer’s part where he grabbed Brown by the neck and then by the shirt, the officer pulled his gun on Brown and shot him at point blank range on the right side of his body. Brown and Johnson were able to get away briefly and started running. However, Brown was shot in the back, supposedly disabling him from getting very far. He turned around with his arms in the air and said “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting!” By this point, Brown and the officer were face to face as the cop shot him several times in the face and chest until he was finally dead. Johnson ran to his apartment and by the sound of his account, seemingly had some sort of panic attack. Later he emerged from his home to see Brown still laying in the streets. People were gathered with their cellphones, screaming at the police.

According to msnbc, the police refuse to interview Johnson at all, despite his amazing courage to come forward. They didn’t wanna hear it. They only listened to the cop’s account of it all and were vague with the media on what they thought happened. They’ve also refused to commit to a timeline in releasing autopsy results and other investigation information.

Numerous rumors are sweeping around such as Brown stealing candy from a QuickTrip, the store he emerged from calling the cops on him, Brown reaching for a gun, Brown attacking the cop first, ect. But these have all been debunked. (I know a lot of these have been debunked, but im having a hard time finding sources. if anyone could help out and link some legit ones id be SO grateful)

The event in and of itself was terrible, but now it has escalated beyond belief. Around 100 or more people, mostly black, went to the police station to protest peacefully. Things quickly turned bad as martial law got involved and authorities were bringing in K9s, tanks, heavy artillery, ect. The heavy police presence only made things worse as riots began to break out and looting and vandalism started. [ x ] [ x ] [ x ]

Now, as of very recently, the media has been banned from Ferguson. There is also a No-Fly zone above Ferguson for the reason of “ TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES ” as said on the Federal Aviation Commission’s website. Cop cars are lined up on the borders to prevent people from entering/leaving. Media outlets are being threatened with arrest. It completely violates our amendments and everything.

It’s becoming increasingly scary and difficult to find out whats going on over there. I’m afraid this is all the information I have, though. If anybody else knows anything about the situation, please feel free to add on or correct any mistakes i’ve made as i’m no expert on writing these things.

And as a personal favor, i’d really appreciate anyone to give this a reblog in order to spread the word. I think it’s a shame that this is going on in our own country yet so few people know about it. Help me make this topic huge and get this as much attention as possible.

Shit is fucked and everyone needs to know

RIP my friend. Truly one of the greatest highlights of my life to work with you and get to know you. You will be missed.
Condolences to friends, family and loved ones during this awful tragedy. 
Excuse me while I go and have a good cry.

Other than playful mocking my sartorial splendor, a number of folks have asked me to explain the context of this photograph. So here goes:After working together in Evolution, my friend David Duchovny offered me a role in House of D, his directorial debut. I immediately said yes, mostly because I couldn’t resist playing Erykah Badu’s pimp and hanging out with Robin Williams. On my first day of shooting Robin saw my outfit and went straight for the jugular. He didn’t gesture or even look at Duchovny. In a voice that sounded a lot like black guy #4 in any 70’s blaxploitation film he said, “you mean, this white man is paying you to degrade black women by literally acting like a short term relationship consultant aka pimp? How much is this cracker paying you to sell your soul, brutha?”My response, "He’s not paying me. I owe him five hundred dollars for letting me talk to you" That moment was captured in this photo. Like everyone who mourns his death, Robin Williams made my sides and cheeks hurt, made tears of joy stream down my face. I’m proud to say he even made me scream. In turn, one of the great moments of my life was making him laugh. We’re hardly even but it’s a small personal victory I will carry with me always along with the joy he gave me and so many others.No matter what anyone tells you, words and ideas can change the world.RIP O Captain, my captain. Until we meet again.

Mila Kunis Against Men Saying “We Are Pregnant” - Video

What the fuck is this bullshit and why was it recommended for me?

It’s not like men are involved in the creation of the baby or anything.

I mean shit, I understand that pregnancy is an extremely strenuous thing on the woman, but that doesn’t mean that a dude can’t be proud of the fact that he’s going to be a father.

Hmm. Weird how someone would want to be considered a part of the pregnancy…
There goes all of my respect for Mila Kunis.

My goodness, women like this have some fucking nerve. Good luck Ashton.

Please stop.

Pregnancy is a very dangerous time for cis-women. Until cis-men are capable of nine months of pain without the ability to take painkillers, followed by hours of one of the most painful experiences a human can undergo, I agree with Mila Kunis. It is your child. Not your pregnancy. You don’t get a fucking medal for sticking your dick inside someone and impregnating them, you get a child. So no, you don’t need a fucking spotlight highlighting your months of work and pain and the fact that you can potentially die trying to bring life into the world when you have not undergone any of the physical effort.

Things you can expect during pregnancy: Anemia, urinary tract infections, constipation, mental health conditions including intense depression, hyperemesis gravidarm (basically when persistent vomiting is more than just morning sickness and requires hospitalization). Not to mention there are dozens of infections that can cause serious problems. (x) (x)

Oh and the fact that 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriages which obviously requires hospitalization for the pregnant woman and causes a lot of emotional trauma.

Or that you can’t consume alcohol, most types of fish, you can’t expose yourself to hot water (or any heat, really), or get an x-ray. You cannot eat lunch meats, raw sprouts (radishes, alfalfa, etc.), soft cheeses, anything unpasteurized is out, as are foods with raw or undercooked eggs. And caffeine can lead to miscarriages, so say goodbye to coffee, teas, and chocolate. (x) (x) (x)

About 2 million pregnancy losses occur annually in the U.S.; 6 million babies are born. 25% of pregnancies are lost.

14.5% of pregnant women will experience at least one pregnancy complication.

11% of women are diagnosed with post partum depression.

(x)

800 women die because of pregnancy-related problems in the U.S. annually. (x)

Labor can last for 36 hours or more. You’re in a room full of strangers, who are all seeing your vagina, your blood, your shit, your piss, and your agony. It’s common for tearing to occur during the delivery (x) and after the baby is born you still have to deliver the placenta (essentially an organ).

Pregnancy is terrifying, dangerous, and uncomfortable. None of you have the right to shit on Mila Kunis for telling the truth: You do not deserve the spotlight of your wife’s pregnancy. So get over yourselves. Yes, the father CAN be proud, and he should be. But it’s not his pregnancy. He is not the one who will endure it.

It is not weird that someone would want to be involved in their wife’s pregnancy. It is weird that you have the fucking nerve to lose respect for someone reminding you that the father is not the pregnant one in the picture.

So please, stop.

Today in male entitlement: now women ”have some nerve” if they remind men that they are not, in fact, the pregnant ones. 

I love this post so so much

you work it Mila

I’m so tired of shitbags with garbage opinions.

Great post indeed! Men provide the sperm? Well we provide the eggs so there’s our contributions equaled, and all before the long painful process actually starts, which, as I’m sure you got by now, is only endured by the woman. Not a single part in Mila’s message tells men shouldn’t be proud to be a dad. But then again, this is such a typical lazy, selective-hearing reaction.. /sigh

Why is Gamora missing from Guardians of the Galaxy merchandise?

Exit polls indicate 44 percent of GotG’s opening-week audience were women, yet Disney/Marvel still seems unaware or unconvinced that it can profit from this half of their audience. At San Diego Comic-Con last month, women’s T-shirts for Marvel’s upcoming Agent Carter TV series sold out in a day, with the bemused attendants saying that they hadn’t expected this kind of interest. This is after years of fans clamoring for a female-led superhero movie from anyone.

Fans have been asking, well… where’s Gamora?

When companies are so sexist they don’t even want to accept women to make a profit you know society is very fucked up 

Yeah except this isn’t true. There’s plenty of merch with Gamora.
She has a figure http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=HMVA7903A#.U-OSust0zIU

A bobblehead http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=FU3795#.U-OS5st0zIU

Also custom-printed t-shirts http://www.designbyhumans.com/shop/t-shirt/guardians-of-the-galaxy-gamora/64350/

You can bitch and moan about sexism all you want but don’t fucking lie.

It’s not lying (or bitching and moaning for that matter). Also, you can’t link to a site that is selling unofficial merch and say that it counts as the official sources not leaving out a character. If I went and made 50 Gamora designs, it wouldn’t mean that Marvel had made them, it would mean that I, a fan, had made them. Those action figures you linked are only available in a few select stores, not in every store like everyone else is. I mean look at this shirt; it has five boxes. There are five Guardians. Strangely, they chose not to include Gamora on the entire shirt. Why is that?

She’s not on the display stands either, when they made room for 4 out of 5 guardians. They could have gone with 3 and left out a guy, but they made it work, leaving out the only female member on the team. Why her again?

There’s two sides on this thing and both sides have all 4 Guardians. If it’s a space/size issue, why not have Gamora/Nebula/Ronan/Yondue on the other side? At least she would be included!

Official mugs without Gamora as well:

I mean come on - According to Marvel, the other four members of the Guardians are available at Toys “R” Us online and in stores while Gamora (along with Nebula) will only be available at specialty stores. Seriously. And you think it’s just ‘bitching and moaning’ ? Here are several pictures where it’s clear that Gamora is the only member of the team that is ‘optional’. They aren’t regularly leaving out Drax and swapping it in for Gamora/Rocket/Groot/Peter, or leaving out Groot and Rocket or any other combination. This is not just whining, this is a big deal. Women already have to be happy with just having ONE person of their gender being on a team out of FIVE characters, and you think we’re asking too much for that ONE woman to be included in the merchandise?

And Gamora is the true hero in the film with the good intentions from the start. /sigh
