Recently I was in the shopping mall  and I happened to hear a conversation between some people discussing their dislike for this black girl’s hairstyle who had just previously walked by. One of them called the girl’s  hairstyle “ghetto”, then followed up by saying  “I hate when black girls put all them colors in their hair”. It led me to ask this question, what is ghetto really?  Because I have seen similar hairstyles with Caucasian women never labeled as ghetto. The word “ghetto” has a negative stigma attached to it and it seems like ghetto has become synonymous for “Black People”.What determines whether something is Ghetto or not? Why do some people consider one ghetto and not the other? Is being crafty with the supplies available to me ghetto?  Is being creative while black unacceptable? Does the price of something determine whether you should consider it ghetto or not? Or maybe I’m wrong…. Please do share your thoughts….@hated_logic

You’re exactly right. Just like when Black people improvise, it’s ghetto, but let a middle-to-upper class white person do it, it’s a lifehack, or being thrifty, or economical, or thinking out of the box, or brilliant, or whatever.

THIS FOR ALL OF ETERNITY

omg apparently artificial banana flavoring is based on the gros michel banana which was wiped out by a banana plague in the 50s and the banana we eat today is a totally different thing called the cavendish and thats why banana candy doesnt taste like bananas do you know how lied to i feel. like there was a fucking banana apocalypse and no one told me about it until now

We are eating the shadowy remnants of a dead species.

So I bought this game called Prey for £0.99 because… well I bought it because it was £0.99

A friend told me it’s not even worth that, but I’m not even five minutes in and I love it already.

You play a Native American, and you start out in a bar on a Cherokee reservation. For your first “activity”, you have to beat two racist misogynists with a wrench, because they were being racist, and also misogynistic.

Then “Don’t Fear the Reaper” starts playing and… how can any game that starts so well not be awesome? :D

ANDROMEDA - SPOILERS

Just watched the “Angel Dark, Demon Bright” episode of Andromeda… and I’m not happy about this at all!

Dylan Hunt was meant to worried that he’d be changing history, but it turns out that the future he’d seen was caused by his intervention in history.

Being back there, gave them the chance to not interfere, and therefore NOT alter history after all.

But he didn’t do it. And Tyr didn’t fight hard enough to make him see reason.

The whole episode just feels wrong. I don’t think, that in reality, the events would be the same.

I’ve seen people argue that a trans* woman can’t be a true feminist, because “they weren’t born a woman so they won’t know what it’s like to grow up as a woman”.

Except trans* women face a huge number of issues. To start with, the world is obsessed with their genitals, to the point where every aspect of their personal identity, their soul, is reduced to whether or not they still have a cock. It must be completely dehumanising at times. A trans* woman will find herself dehumanised, sexualised and objectified to an insane degree, with nobody stopping to realise that they’re a real fucking person just like anyone else.

And if they manage to break past all that stigma? If society finally accepts them as the woman they truly are?

Well that’s just great, except being a woman of course means being dehumanised, sexualised and objectified to an insane degree…

So fuck you non-inclusive feminists, trans* women are already fighting TWO fights just to be recognised as a human being, and you’re starting a third fight over whether they’re even allowed to fight or not?

Sorry, love, that’s not your call.

Life Hack: if there’s ever a knock at the door when you’re high as fuck with a massive hardon, don’t answer it.

Source: the awkward conversation I just had with the policewoman that knocked on the door when I was high as fuck with a massive hardon.

Just opened the door for a second officer, with a huge grin on his face.

"Oh, sorry has my colleague already been here? I thought she had but I wanted to be sure, thanks very much, bye!"

What the hell, today?
