Do not go to the liquor store on 90th and MacArthur, around 10-14 Black men will be standing out there with vans and they will try to snatch you up, the Arab dudes who own the liquor store are in on it do not go there during the night, if it wasn’t for my boyfriend being with me last night they would have got me #staywoke

also please do not go by yourself let alone in a group of girls by international ave or east oakland or stay out in the BART stations by yourself.

IS THIS REAL???

Robin Williams Is NOT Free (via Phoebe Gavin)

Did you know that suicide is contagious?
Yep. A great deal of research has been done on cases spanning the last three hundred years the show that suicide rates spike after a highly publicized suicide – especially when it’s a celebrity suicide.
Does that mean we shouldn’t talk about suicide or Robin Williams? No. It means we should talk about suicide and Robin Williams responsibly.
From the CDC: ASPECTS OF NEWS COVERAGE THAT CAN PROMOTE SUICIDE CONTAGION
  • Presenting simplistic explanations for suicide
  • Engaging in repetitive, ongoing, or excessive reporting of suicide in the news
  • Providing sensational coverage of suicide
  • Reporting “how-to” descriptions of suicide
  • Presenting suicide as a tool for accomplishing certain ends
  • Glorifying suicide or persons who commit suicide
  • Focusing on the suicide completer’s positive characteristics
"But Phoebe, they’re basically saying don’t talk about suicide."
No, they’re saying is don’t make it sound attractive. 

An example of what not to do: 

Robin Williams is NOT free.

Please watch this. 

Another thing blown out of proportion. It was not meant to be malicious or romantic. It was meant as an honor to a man who let his demons take him over and eventually break away from them. I didn’t see this as them making it an accomplishment. There is no glory in this. Ugh.

so good. can’t wait to see him at stern grove in august!

If you kill a person, you’re a murderer. If you steal, no one would hesitate to call you a thief. But in America, when you force yourself on someone sexually, some people will jump through flaming hoops not to call you a rapist.

Michael Sam Reacts to Being Drafted by the Rams by
Tristan Thornburgh

This is the footage that ESPN aired live. So not only do we have the first openly gay player drafted to the NFL but we also have the first gay kiss between player and lover aired on national tv.

That’s right, ESPN, owned by DISNEY, aired this in full with no cuts.

How about that for some equality?

TIME: “Do you consider yourself a feminist?”

Shailene Woodley: ”No because I love men, and I think the idea of ‘raise women to power, take the men away from the power’ is never going to work out because you need balance.”

bugs me how publications like complex will profile interesting artists in order to sell copies/get clicks and then shit on their records? it happens to me all the time- pitchfork and that ilk being like “can we interview you?” after totally taking the piss out of me in a review. have a stance on an artist and stick to it. don’t act like you respect them then throw them under the bus.

IF YOU WANT BETTER REVIEWS. MAKE A BETTER FUCKING ALBUM. THE WRITER OF A MUSIC REVIEW DOES NOT MAKE THE DECISION TO PUT THAT MUSICIAN ON THE COVER. THAT’S NOT HOW JOURNALISM WORKS. I UNDERSTAND LORDE’S POINT, BUT PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW THAT BEING ON THE COVER DOES NOT JUSTIFY GOOD REVIEWS WHEN YOU DON’T DESERVE IT. AGAIN: THAT’S NOT HOW JOURNALISM WORKS.
