I'm kinda pathetic.

I don't always follow back, but I still interact with people.

I am fully conscious that, not being a literary man, certain presumptuous persons will think that they may reasonably blame me; alleging that I am not a man of letters. Foolish folks!

Dear daughter… | The Murverse 

I’ve seen boys cry when injured. Frustrated. Feelings hurt. Blocked out of play. Denied something. It’s what kids do as they learn the world around them. The world is tough; before you learn to cope, you cry, whether you sport the penis or the fallopian tubes. It’s fucking lesson #1 after you take your first breath. I cried. You did too.

Marriage Proposal of the Day: In what is believed to be the first proposal of marriage between two gay men — and war vets — on a U.S. military base, Navy vet Cory Huston asked Marine Avarice Guerrero to marry him Tuesday at Camp Pendleton in San Diego. Here’s the story:

Under a bright Southern California sky at Camp Pendleton’s Camp Del Mar near Oceanside, California, a full two hours before his boyfriend’s return from the badlands of Afghanistan, Cory Huston waited nervously. Huston, who was discharged under the former Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy, chain smoked as he rehearsed the simple proposal he would deliver when Guerrero would arrive.
Finally, luggage in tow, Guerrero emerged with a smile on his face. Upon seeing Huston, Guerrero dropped his bags; aimed a kiss toward Huston’s lips; and opened his arms to his boyfriends waiting embrace. The time and distance of 10 months’ separation evaporated in a public show of affection that less than a year ago would have been cause for court martial. After a few minutes of emotional holding and kissing, Huston went anxiously down on one knee; looked up at Guerrero, who was dressed from head to toe in military fatigues; and produced an engagement ring and the time-honored phrase, “Will you marry me?”
Huston’s mild tremble, a result of hours and days of anticipation about this day, was quickly quieted by the one word every hopeful fiancé wants to hear: “Yes.”

Beautiful.

This makes me happy. A world full of love makes me happy.

In support of our effort, we will give away a book for every “re-blog”, “retweet”, and “share” we get of  this message on twitter, tumblr and facebook. Get to sharing. 

The Book Bench: White Until Proven Black: Imagining Race in Hunger Games 

On Tuesday, February 28th, a twenty-nine-year-old Canadian male fan of Suzanne Collins’s dystopian young adult trilogy, “The Hunger Games,” logged onto the popular blogging platform Tumblr for the first time and created a site he called Hunger Games Tweets. The young man, whom I’ll call Adam, had been tracking a disturbing trend among Hunger Games enthusiasts: readers who could not believe—or accept—that Rue and Thresh, two of the most prominent and beloved characters in the book, were black, had been posting vulgar racial remarks.

“Kony 2012 Video is Some Bull”

Here I am, thinking I’m doing something nice and helpful, and then I see this video.

I no longer know what to think. I apologize if this is true. -_-;

GOD BLESS HER.

Interesting perspective from a Ugandan.

The important thing is to do some actual research, perhaps listen to a few actual Ugandans, and do some background checks before plowing your money into any organization, especially one that pays its founder over $90,000 a year.

I have thankfully not yet donated any money to any cause, and really the first cause I care about is getting people to realize what is going on in the world. But yeah, this video is definitely interesting. And a guy in my anthropology class is from Uganda, and when asked about his opinion on this topic, he seemed a bit skeptical and said he wasn’t really sure if Kony was behind all the mass murders in Uganda. It’s so frustrating getting so many mixed signals from different sources, but there are charities other than the apparently shady Invisible Children that help to rescue the children from child armies. 

ah, the perspective we’ve all be needing. 

Brb, instead of sending $35 bucks to KONY 2012, I’ll be sending it to Doctors Without Borders. Win-win!
