Nicki Minaj is not a woman who easily slides into the roles assigned to women in her industry or elsewhere. She’s not polished, she’s not concerned with her reputation, and she’s certainly not fighting for equality among mainstream second-wave feminists. She’s something else, and she’s something equally worth giving credence to: a boundary-breaker, a nasty bitch, a self-proclaimed queen, a self-determined and self-made artist. She’s one of the boys, and she does it with the intent to subvert what it means. She sings about sexy women, about fucking around with different men. She raps about racing ahead in the game, imagines up her own strings of accolades, and rolls with a rap family notorious for dirty rhymes, foul mouths, and disregard for authority and hegemony.
While Beyoncé has expanded feminist discourse by reveling in her role as a mother and wife while also fighting for women’s rights, Minaj has been showing her teeth in her climb to the top of a male-dominated genre. Both, in the process, have expanded our society’s idea of what an empowered women looks like — but Minaj’s feminist credentials still frequently come under fire. To me, it seems like a clear-cut case of respectability politics and mainstreaming of the feminist movement: while feminist writers raved over Beyoncé’s latest album and the undertones of sexuality and empowerment that came with it, many have questioned Minaj’s decisions over the years to subvert beauty norms using her own body, graphically talk dirty in her work, and occasionally declare herself dominant in discourse about other women. (All of these areas of concern, however, didn’t seem to come into play when Queen Bey did the same.)"
i was not disappointed by this at all
This gif will always be in the top 5 of best things on the internet.
That too fat to get out of its hole prairie dog doesn’t have the same place in my heart as boinging off a glass wall manatee, but it definitely has the adjoining suite. I just need some kind giant with a gentle touch and a handy towel to wedge me out of my hole despite my tiny rodent protestations. That’s all any of us need really, right?
[rubs face furiously with hands] white people do not experience racism in north america. Or any eurocentric society really. We can experience individual prejudice and discrimination but we do not experience racism.
My desire to lose weight is tempered by my utter enjoyment of being fat in a bikini.
Hulu has acquired exclusive streaming rights to Starz’s cult comedy “Party Down.”

Us: (chilling on the beach)
Lady Walking Past Us: You two look so yummy, I just want to jump right in between you!
LWPU: (keeps going) Enjoy!
Omar: Did we just get propositioned on the beach?
Us: (high five)
Please keep in mind before reading this text of an email I just got from corporate HR, that we have never in my nine years of working at this place done anything remotely … team-buildy or spirited or whatever.
Attention [redacted] Employees!!!!! Tomorrow, August 29th, is College Colors Day! Show your team spirit by wearing your college colors, send your picture(s), name and ext. to [blah blah blah] and be entered into a drawing for a restaurant gift card!!!
What if you went to a wee tiny school in the northeast that didn’t have a football team? Am I meant to come into work naked? Can I just take the day off?
Man, I WISH we’d have a college spirit day. They would so regret it.

- lettuceiscurrentlyinmyasshole said:Hey, that gif of the piglet running through the grass is a teacup pig. Teacup pigs are actually normal pigs or potbelly pigs but the sows are bred very young and then kept malnourished through their pregnancy so the piglets are underdeveloped. Then the piglets' access to their mom's milk is restricted so they stay small. The whole process is extremely cruel and I'd appreciate it if you'd not spread gifs of teacup pigs and other 'teacup' animals.
I did some research. The owner says it is just a small potbelly piglet and not a mini or teacup pig. They rescued it and seem to be taking very good...
