A hodge podge of reblogs with a political theme. But there will be other stuff as well.

Scrolling through POF I just came across the realization that its like trying to find the perfect dog to adopt off the SPCA website.  

"Awww, that one’s cute.  A little older, but that’s okay.  Wait, shit.  It’s high energy. I can’t do high energy."

"Look at you!  You’re perfect, except…. yup, you got separation anxiety and require constant attention. Well that aint gotta work out."

"Prone to possessive behaviour.  Aaaaaaah no."

"You’re not even house broken."

The main problem I have with Men’s Rights Activists is that their name really doesn’t do them justice. They’re Straight Cis White Men’s Rights Activists. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign for the inclusion of trans* men in their spaces.

I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign to end the social stigma around black fatherhood. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign for better pay and equal career mobility for men of colour. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists actively campaign for more gay men’s rights. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists advise others in their group on how using f*ggot to emasculate men who aren’t part of their cause is alienating and marginalising other MEN.

I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign, raise awareness of, or support victims of male rape unless it’s in order to derail a discussion around female victims of rape. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign, raise awareness of, or support male victims of domestic abuse unless it’s in order to derail a discussion around female victims of domestic abuse. Men’s Rights Activists are hypocrites and frauds.

They’re bitter privileged white men who don’t want to campaign for the rights of men — they want to campaign to keep their privilege unchecked and their ability to discriminate against others. If you want to be a real Men’s Rights Activist — be a fucking (intersectional) Feminist. Peace out.

So, as a chef and a former intense athlete, I have to be hella conscious about keeping in shape and not gaining a shit ton of weight by inhaling everything I eat 24/7. This is why, when I can, I like to work with healthier shit to combat all the creamy, sugar and fat filled delicacies I make like 24/7.

For everyone like me who’s working on staying in shape or being healthy, this recipes for you, my precious weeb losers.

Based on the Honey Lemon Slices from Kuroko no Basuke (my current obsession), I decided to do my own take on this insanely good for you Japanese treat.

OH. AND FUN FACT ABOUT THESE. IT’S A SNACK AND A DRINK ALL IN ONE. You’ll find out what I’m talking about later.

~

Honey Lemon Slices
(serves: an entire fucking basketball team ayyoo)

-

Ingredients-

  • 2 lemons
  • enough honey to fully cover all the lemons*
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp  ginger
  • 7 mint leaves (for later)
  • 4 cups water (for later)

*So fun fact for all your plebs out there: there’s like 5 million types of honeys that vary in not only flavor, but texture. For this recipe, I used a creamy clover honey mixed with a more transparent, thick chestnut honey to combat the sweetness with some bitterness from the chestnut. Use whatever the fuck you want, but if you’re using a raw, or creamy honey, mix it with some water to make it more liquidy and stuff.

~

Procedure-

  • Thinly slice the lemons, making sure you’re using basically everything but the ends and REMOVE ALL THE SEEDS HOLY SHIT.
  • Once they’re all sliced, mix your honey with the cinnamon and ginger until it’s all combined. Then, take a glass tupperware container thing and cover the bottom with a thin layer of your honey mixture.
  • On top of that, add one layer of lemon slices, and then just alternate between honey and lemon slices until you finished all the lemon slices. 
  • Once that’s done, pour in the remainder of your honey mixture so that it completely covers the lemons, and then cover that with a lid and throw it in the fridge.
  • Keep it chilled for at least 2 days, and no more than 3 days. Try and shake or mix the container at least twice a day so that the lemon juices can mix with the honey.
  • Once that’s all done, throw it in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes so that they’re hella chilled, and then remove the lemon slices from the container.
  • After they’re all plated and shit, combine 4 cups of water, 7 mint leaves, and hell, some ice cubes, with the liquid in the tupperware container.
  • Defeat your basketball foes with your incredible jumps and your moe qualities.

~

TADAH MOTHERFUCKER. You just made a hella healthy treat for you and your shit weeb friends to eat and drink while you’re watching kawaii dudes dripping glittery sparkle sweat all over the B-Ball courts.

Make this during the summer when you want something cold, sweet and healthy to devour, make em when you’re sick to get some radical antioxidants and vitamin C or whatever, just make them all the fucking time I dare you, you pieces of shit.

ALRIGHTY. THAT’S ALL FOR THIS RECIPE. STAY TUNED FOR MORE RECIPES THAT WILL DEFINITELY NOT INVOLVE KUROKO NO BASUKE IN SOME WAY (maybe probably i think sort of)

Later, nerds.

Hip Flexor Stretch

Kneel with one foot in front of you, knees bent 90 degrees. Keep your torso upright and rest your hands on your hips (a). Gently push your hips forward as far as you can, maintaining an upright torso (b). Hold for 10 to 20 seconds, then repeat on the other side.
Quick Tip: Increase the intensity of the stretch by raising your opposite arm straight overhead.

36 men show us what real male activists look like

Ultimately, the #YesAllWomen rallying cry reached more than 1 million tweets in the days since the tragedy, outlasting even Kim Kardashian’s wedding on Sunday. But women are not the only ones frustrated by our society’s institutionalized misogyny. So many men, too, reported feeling disgusted by the attitudes of the shooter and his alleged peers, the “men’s rights activists” that not only influenced Rodger, but publicly predicted more violence if men aren’t given what they want.

Men deserve their own space to talk back to these “activists.” Here is just a small part of that response, but you can find more responses or post your own on the hashtag #AllMenCan, because all men can have respect for women without ever becoming less of a man.

why do i keep laughing at the thought of female!spiderman…(spidergirl? spiderwoman?) getting caught without her mask on and the dude who catches her just goes on a rant about ‘fake geek girls’ and how ‘that costume isn’t even accurate oh my god’ and ‘comic-con was last week’

and her secret identity is saved because some dudebro in a batman t-shirt thinks he’s hot shit

I discovered how to make a Photoshop brush that behaves almost exactly the same way oils do. To download the thing click here.
It’s a Tool (Smudge) so you should load it into Tool Presets. And also play around with Strength to find what percentage works best for you. 
If you can’t install it properly, you can find a tutorial on how to make it here.

Tricep Dip

Triceps dips are a simple way to tone shoulders and upper arms, but while the move seems basic, it can be easy to do it incorrectly. Make sure you aren’t rolling your shoulders forward, and don’t just lift and lower your butt; focus on bending your elbows and strengthening your arms to ensure you’re focusing on your triceps. Find out how to do a triceps dip here.

Inchworms

You’ll engage pretty much every muscle group in your body in this tougher-than-it-looks movement. Plus, you’ll get an awesome hamstring stretch in the process. Hinge at your hips to place your hands on the floor in front of your feet, keeping your legs as straight as possible (A). Begin walking your hands out in front of you (B) taking small steps until you’re in a plank position (C). Then walk your feet up to your hands, also with small steps. Do 4 reps, then turn around and do 4 more. (If you have a long room or hallway, go for all 8 in a row, or challenge yourself to go from one end of it to the other).
