Real talk: I’m super uncomfortable with Ariana Grande’s image. Hear me out: it isn’t that I have an issue with women (or anyone, for that matter) being sexual and expressing themselves. My issue with her, in specific, is that it feels like this girl is not at all in touch with her sensuality yet and her label is just pushing to sexualize her because they think it’s going to sell. No tea, no shade, but Ari doesn’t look like a person who has reached the stage of life where she understands and is in touch with her own sensuality; her label/producers/whoever are desperate to leave her “girly image” behind like Britney Spears did with Slave 4 U, but the difference is that, for Britney, that era wasn’t about trying to sell sex: that era was about rebellion against her own clean image, but it was her call and her need to express herself.
A lot of female artists go through that stage, and for some, it takes a short amount of time (Miley Cyrus), while for others, it takes a while (Shakira). This is fine, but when it’s being forced, it just feels so awkward. This is why you end up with Ari showing up in a super short dress and people saying she looks like a Spy Kid. It isn’t about some sort of moral high ground over virginity or purity or some bullshit, it’s about the fact that this girl isn’t there yet and her label doesn’t seem to understand that. Give her time to grow up.
it’s funny because she’s 21 but they want her to look even younger.
Yaayy for someone talking about how the industry FORCES female stars into these patterns. Also tbh Miley doesn’t seem in touch with hardly anything either.
Funny thing is, you can still show that the Doctor is an alien and not romantically interested in the female companion without him insulting her constantly. That’s just lazy writing.

Vegans are made a mockery of constantly both in media and every day situations and meat eaters will have a good chuckle at it all but the second a vegan makes a joke about meat eaters suddenly its like “see this shit here this is why no one likes vegans”
You’re all a bunch of whiney pissbabies.
Some motivation from the doctor.
I definitely needed this right now!

wow The Onion is dropping a lot of truth for a work of satire
nothing about boys having their genitals mutliated routinely in the US of course
Lets not pretend that a surgery performed in sterile conditions with full anaesthetic and the gamut of modern medical know-how is at all comparable to having your clitoris hacked off by a razor blade or a rusty tin can by someone with no medical training working in assembly line conditions with no hope of sterility.
Let’s also not pretend that the excision of the foreskin of the penis is in any way comparable to Grade IV, or what’s known as “infibulation”, where they hack off EVERYTHING, stitch her up and leave a hole smaller than your index finger for urine and blood to escape, and that her husband is expected to open on his wedding night, either by brute force or with another blade.
None of that, incidentally, is performed under even local anaesthetic.
So no. The mutilation of male neo-nates isn’t good, but it in no way compares. Might as well say that pulling a tooth out at the dentist is the same as getting curbstomped.
Just adding, they don’t use full anaesthetic on neonates— there’s too high of a risk of overdose, and the dorsal penile nerve blocker (which is the strongest anaesthetic available for neonatal circumcision) doesn’t actually offer any pain relief because the incision is done on the underside of the penis… Most of the time boy babies start having seizures and go into shock, and if it was done on males old enough to articulate their pain it would probably be illegal.
That being said, dude, stop derailing posts about women’s sex-based oppression to talk about male circumcision. If you actually care and don’t just want to silence women, make your own post. There are plenty of people who agree with you. You don’t have to bring it up here.

What if an alien species has been attempting to communicate with us but their language is so—well—alien to us that we don’t have the capability of recognizing it?
