at the time this screenshot was taken on october 5th, pornhub had raised over $3000. $3000 in 5 out of 31 days. the susan g. komen foundation declined their “dirty” donation. thousands of dollars that could save lives or at least improve them, and they wouldn’t accept the offer because of how it was raised.
ah yes “ugh”
because nothing says “We could care less about your actual lives, and more about your breasts which we have over sexualized to hell and back through porn and other means” like exactly what pornhub fucking did.
It’s the same with the “I <3 Boobies” Campaign
Let’s save boobs guys! Let’s save boobs so that there can be more boobs in our porn! Let’s basically only give a shit because boobs lol!
Pretty sure people suffering from cancer don’t give a flying fuck about where funding for research comes from or what their motives are as long as it actually helps.
In what world is the belief that women’s breasts have been ‘over-sexualized’ suddenly more important than saving the lives of people suffering, and dying, of cancer? Is this really a pressing issue when lives are at stake? Seriously?
I’m pretty sure the guys (or girls, or whomever) that run Pornhub just happen to like breasts (like basically everyone does) and also want to *help* people—because, guess what, you can do both.
My mother is dying of Stage Four beast cancer and she says she doesn’t care as long as nobody is harmed getting the funding. She said she’d let people stare at her boobs all day if it meant finding a cure that’ll allow her to watch her granddaughter grow up.
I love this discussion. It shows just how fucking ludicrous ‘super liberalism’ is. ‘You’re dying and could really use that money?? So FUCKING WHAT. PEOPLE ARE BEING SEXUALISED OUT THERE. CHECK YOUR FUCKING PRIVILEGE. CAPITALIST FUCKING PIG. ALL ME ME ME.’
So hi everbody! Basically, the 183 thousand sanctimonious people who retweeted this want you to know that ugly people should be wearing burqas. Cool, right?! Fight oppression!! Woo!!!!
Javier Pérez: En Puntas (2013)
Video installation of variable measurements comprising:
Sculpture: pointe shoes, stainless steel knives
Video projection: HD blu-ray, with sound, screened on a wall
A ballerina, whose pointe shoes are extended by a set of sharp kitchen knives, dances and twirls insistently until reaching exhaustion, fighting to maintain balance on the lid of a grand piano set on a stage. The theatre with its red velvet warm lighting, resembles an oversized music box. The camera turns around the dancer revealing the opposite side of the room: an empty and painfully bare theatre.
The ballerina appears as an eerie figure expressing effort, sacrifice and pain in her strive for perfection. Both fragile and cruel. Initially shy and hesitant, her steps become more and more emphatic, menacing and not exempt of violence, scraping and cutting into the delicate surface of the piano with her sharp pointe shoes.
Through this work, Javier Perez investigates and reflects once again upon the human condition. Using a strongly metaphorical language rich in powerful symbolism, he reveals the weaknesses that become the boundaries between seemingly irreconcilable concepts such as: beauty and cruelty, fragility and violence, culture and nature or life and death.
The video is actually terrifying omg

Lady Gaga practicing ‘The Abramovic Method’ (x)
It’s now confirmed that Gaga’s artwork for Applause directly references Pierrot the clown.
Pierrot, a character from the Commedia Dell’arte style of 16th century Italian theater, is the iconic “sad clown” recognizable from many forms of media and performances over time.
Throughout history, and in various incarnations, Pierrot has worn baggy white pantaloons, ruffled collars, a dunce cap or black skull cap, and is always in white face makeup.
Pierrot represented the outsider, a naive lover, and fool. He was in love with Columbina, who left him for Harlequin, another recognizable character from history. Harlequin was the entertainer, clever and charismatic, even magical at times, able to persuade audiences with trickery.
It gets better.
But seriously. The picture of Madonna ripping off Marilyn Monroe looks nothing like the Gaga picture. This Madonna bullshit is so fucking boring, and she bears some blame for stoking the fire for publicity.

AHA. AHAHAHAHAHAHHFASKJFHGAKHFGKFKGSDFKGSDFKHGSDFKHDSK. SOCIETY, WHICH MARKETS LIFE AS IF IT WERE A FUCKING TEENAGE DREAM KILLED THE TEENAGER. BLAHAHAHAHAHAHA. JUST WAIT UNTIL YOU’RE IN YOUR 20’S AND THE WHOLE WORLD DOESN’T REVOLVE AROUND YOU.
Rape isn’t about uncontrollable sexual desire. You only have to listen in on a Call of Duty game to see that. When that kid crows, “I raped you!”, he’s not calling the other guy sexy; he’s saying he defeated him, dominated him, humiliated him. That’s what rape is about, and that should scare you.
Please tweet the hashtag #JRPGVITA with the word ‘Suikoden’. Sony is currently polling tweeters on which JRPG they’d like to see come to the Vita. Let’s revive Suikoden! It’s already very popular, and you could help ensure its success!
