Charts from OKCupid, showing how straight women and men rate each other based on ages. For women, the men they find most attractive are roughly their own age. For men, the women they find most attractive are roughly the same age - 20 to 23 - regardless of the age of the man. (538)

Good fucking Christ.

I’m immediately stopping feeling weird for finding celebrities hot who are not my exact same age (mostly they are older than me and men)

I remember when I first found out the truth about “Somali pirates” I got chills because of how horrific the truth was and how insanely creepily well the media had twisted the situation. Every single fucking article making it seem like these “pirates” were just after money or something holding innocent people hostage and I never gave it a second thought, why would I? There was no indication that people were trying to legitimately fight off disgusting imperialism that left nuclear waste in their waters, that over 300 people have died from radiation sickness, that Europeans have been stealing Somalia’s seafood because they overfished their own waters and the indigenous fisherman are starving and so these “pirates” emerged to deal with those stealing their country’s natural resources. The truth is enough to make anyone sick to their stomachs.

This is a great article about the truth about Somali pirates, in case anyone wants a source.

French far right is at the ‘gates of power’, PM Valls warns
September 07 2014 — France 24
France’s far-right National Front is at the “gates of power”, Prime Minister Manuel Valls (Photo I) warned on Sunday, after a recent poll showed FN leader Marine Le Pen would beat Socialist President François Hollande in a 2017 presidential vote.
The French premier was speaking to fellow social democrats from across Europe at the annual National Unity Festival (Festa nazionale de l’Unita) in the Italian city of Bologna.
"In France, the extreme right of Marine Le Pen (Photo: II) is at the gates of power,” Valls said. “And I, as a man of the left, will never be able to resign myself to that because it will be the weakest who will be the first to suffer. And it will also be a terrible, perhaps fatal, blow to Europe.”
Although the poll released Friday predicted that Le Pen would beat Hollande in the event of a second round run-off between them, other surveys suggest that she would lose if facing former president Nicolas Sarkozy or another candidate from the centre right.
A high-profile disagreement over France’s economic policy triggered a crisis within the Socialist Party in recent weeks and forced a surprise cabinet re-shuffle. In a possible warning to the left-wing rebels inside his own party, the more centrist Valls said the European left had to change its approach if it wanted to succeed.
"We have to act differently. We have to speak differently," the Spanish-born premier said. "In order to be listened to and to be heard … We know what will be the terrible price of failure."
Valls has long been the most popular Socialist politician in France, but his chances of winning the battle within his party may have been fatally compromised by the bad blood caused by the current crisis, some analysts say.
"When Marine Le Pen is forecast to get 32 percent in the first round of a presidential vote and even win in the second, is that what we need?" he asked.
"Or do we need to put the country back on its feet?"
Dissident elements in the Socialist party are opposed to Valls’ proposal to cut €50 billion in state spending by 2017 and use some of the savings to reduce corporate payroll taxes in a bid to tackle France’s record unemployment.
The tensions in the party could come to a head on September 16, when the Valls government faces a confidence vote in parliament that could — if enough left-wingers side with the right — force the dissolution of parliament.
"Everyone has to step up and accept responsiblity for avoiding an institutional crisis," Valls said.
President Hollande, meanwhile, is facing his own political calamity, with an opinion poll published Friday putting his approval rating at a new record low of 13 percent.
Hollande’s woes were compounded by the publication last week of a memoir by his former partner, Valérie Trierweiler, with whom he split soon after a tabloid revealed he was having an affair with actress Julie Gayet.
Hollande has since hit back at Trierweiler’s claims that he is contemptuous of the poor and had referred to them as “toothless”.
Speaking to reporters after a NATO summit wrapped up in Wales, Hollande said that he was “at the service of the poorest” and that serving them was his “raison d’être”.

Pop culture is obsessed with portraying cops as armed badasses — and that’s a problem

Of the many issues that surfaced after the shooting of Michael Brown, the militarization of local police forces might be the easiest to solve. It’s a reality at least partially related to the depiction of the police in pop culture. 
Our attitudes have to change | Follow @micdotcom
To some extent, this isn’t a policy issue. Raising the specter of militarized police in pop culture is, at best, a call for creators and viewers alike to be a little more thoughtful about who they emulate. But there is a minor policy element, and it leads back to the same source. Our increasingly positive portrayals of the military and of militaristic action are no accident: The Pentagon has a history of influencing scripts in exchange for access.

Hi. We're an LGBT literature publisher based in India and we've just started two projects calling for new queer and South Asian writers. We're new to Tumblr (we heard there's a vibrant LGBT community here and we're looking to see if that applies to desi LGBTIQA folks too). Could you help us promote it?

When people say “culture is meant to be shared” I’m literally like ???? Because that has literally never been the purpose of any culture. Culture is about identity, community and family. It’s about tradition. It is not and has never been about “sharing”.

Say it!

They keep saying “shared” when they mean “made available for my consumption.”

Remember #BringBackOurGirls? This Is What Has Happened In The 5 Months Since
On the night of April 14, 2014, hundreds of schoolgirls at the Chibok boarding school in northeastern Nigeria awoke to the sound of gunfire. They saw men in camouflage approaching and thought soldiers were coming to save them from a militant attack, according to survivors’ accounts.

1,200 aboriginal Canadian women have gone missing over the past 30 years. Hashtag asks #AmINext?

On Aug. 17, Winnipeg police pulled the body of 15-year-old Tina Fontaine out of the Red River near Alexander Docks.

The scope of the tragedy prompted Holly Jarret of Hamilton, Ont. — cousin to Loretta Saunders, an indigenous woman who was murdered in February at age 26 — to launch the #AmINext hashtag earlier this month.

So, what’s being done about it? | Follow micdotcom

First comic cover wayy back like 4 years ago me thinks..Read Joseph and Yusra the Muslim/Jewish webcomic/manga. 

We just read this whole comic (it’s not finished) in 2 days and we really love it! Yusra and Joseph are so cute and I really love the combination of “normal” problems/everyday live and their powers and international conflicts and espionage and so on! Can’t wait to see what happens :)
It even comes in several languages: English, Hebrew, Arabic and Malay (although not all of the comic is translated in languages other than English)
