The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water.
There are a lot of diseases that don’t get the support they need because there aren’t a huge number of people who experience them, so it’s difficult to raise awareness, difficult to find investors, basically people don’t have the emotional connection they do with something that a huge number of people deal with and the pharmaceuticals to treat them aren’t as profitable. Like, a friend of mine was at an MS fundraiser and the grim joke used to try to lighten people’s spirits for feeling like they weren’t raising as much money as they wanted was “Let’s face it guys, we aren’t cancer”
The ice bucket challenge has made people donate something like ten times as much to ALS this year than previous years. I know people are concerned about wasting water, but you’ll do a lot more good on that front if you take a stand against bottled water and soft drinks, particularly from companies like Nestle, than getting mad at people trying to raise awareness for an illness that let’s be honest not a lot of people were very familiar with before this. Just be responsible, be aware, and try not to take your frustration out on the wrong people.
Most of us have followed the terror in Ferguson all week from afar, and I’ve seen Tumblr reblogging and engaging passionately on this platform about the unbelievable police state that’s taking place in Missouri…
Can we please signal boost this shit?
fitness-fits-me is a Tumblr user who I recently had an encounter with regarding her misuse and misbranding of the concept of “kimono”. Naturally it got over a thousand reblogs and i’ve received countless very racist, VERY nasty anons over the last two days:
YOU’RE SUCH AN UGLY IDIOT. FUCKING COMMIT SUICIDE YOU RICE PICKER.
I hope you get shot in the head as you sleep. Nasty little chink.
UGKLY QUEER YOUR JUST JEALOUS YOURE A LITTLE FAGGOT. YOU WANT TO BE A CUTE WHITE GIRL TOO BUT YOU CANT THAT’S SO SAD LOL ;)
What the fuck did fitnessfitsme ever do to you. You look like a tranny bitch.
Your the reason why we bombed Hiroshima HAHA I HOPE THE RADIATION GIVES YOUR FAMILY CANCER
i hope you and your firend gets run over by a train and her dead body is raped in front of you faggot gook
Have fun trying to kill all white people when you can’t even open your eyes enough to see em you chink”
Needless to say, neither I or anyone involved in the previously mentioned argument ever used a sexist or homophobic or transphobic slur, nor did we threaten anyone with rape, etc.
You’d think this is the worst but unfortunately I got an anon who linked me to a tiny pic link. I fixed the url (they linked it broken up “(.)”,. etc so it’d get through the filter and into my inbox), and it was this:
(You can click
herefor a larger ver but warning, this shit is graphic and disturbing. Apparently a story of someone raping an infant from I have no idea. Hopefully not true.)
They wrote, and I quote, “because i know you’re a loli loving jap. stop being mean to ppl and go fuck a baby ok? ;3”
This isn’t disgusting, this is beyond that. I have no words. Well, when I addressed her regarding both the nasty anon and this link I was sent in response from her followers, all she said was this:
“Don’t dish out what you can’t take.”
fitness-fits-me has evolved from a regular old culture appropriating bigot to something much more. I can “take” a lot of things but being sent child porn? Especially RIGHT AFTER I TALKED ABOUT MY BABY SISTER AND COUSIN?
I am nauseous and without words.
There is arguing online and then there’s condoning the rape of children. Nevermind telling me to get cancer, or threatening to rape me.
Condoning the rape of infants.
I’m without words.
People are giving Wilson money to thank him for killing an unarmed black teenager. Please report this to GoFundMe, as it violates their Terms of Service and they get 5% of the tens of thousands of dollars being donated. Click to report.
This is my message, in case you want to copy and paste:
Your Terms of Service prohibit “items that promote… hate, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime.” Take a look at the comments that come with the donations on this page and tell me that doesn’t violate your terms. “Support Officer Wilson” is a thin veil for people rewarding Wilson for killing a black kid.
Sharks get a bad rap for being dangerous predators that are constantly devouring humans, but there is a whole world of things out there that will kill before a shark does. Here are just a few of those things.
WHO THE FUCK GETS KILLED BY A FUCKING VENDING MACHINE
Reblog if you’d watch a show or movie with an asexual protagonist
I don’t think I know anyone with this background, but maybe we can signal boost. One major thing the Ferguson organizers have been asking for specifically for several days is for service donations from mental health professionals with a background in trauma counseling, people of color would be preferable for obvious reasons. If you know someone who might be willing to either to go to Ferguson or do tele-sessions, please direct them to this form.

Do you ever watch a video or see a picture and then gasp and say “MY BABY” when it is, in fact, NOT your baby but is actually a man in his 30s
