We really live in a fantastic future. 

Your self-worth has nothing to do with your craft or calling, and everything to do with how you treat yourself.

New Cracked After Hours “6 Weirdly Conservative Messages Hidden in ‘Ghostbusters’” is up and has some of my art in it! Go watch! :)
We never say that all men deserve to feel beautiful. We never say that each man is beautiful in his own way. We don’t have huge campaigns aimed at young boys trying to convince them that they’re attractive, probably because we very rarely correlate a man’s worth with his appearance. The problem is that a woman’s value in this world is still very much attached to her appearance, and telling her that she should or deserves to feel beautiful does more to promote that than negate it. Telling women that they “deserve” to feel pretty plays right in to the idea that prettiness should be important to them. And having books and movies aimed at young women where every female protagonist turns out to be beautiful (whereas many of the antagonists are described in much less flattering terms) reinforces the message that beauty has some kind of morality attached to it, and that all heroines are somehow pretty.

[A series of tweets by Shaun King (@ShaunKing) on 17 October, 2014, about the circumstances surrounding the murder of Mike Brown.

I wonder if Wilson told authorities how angry he got after he drove away and saw that Mike & Dorian refused to get on the sidewalk.

Darren Wilson DROVE AWAY from Mike Brown & Dorian Johnson after telling them to get on the sidewalk. Follow me for a second.

He drove away. THEN 4 witnesses saw & heard him so violently shift his SUV into reverse that the tires screeched down Canfield Drive.

Eyewitnesses said that Dorian Johnson & Mike Brown were nearly hit by his SUV when he reversed it down Canfield.

Dorian Johnson said that when Darren Wilson so violently flung his door open that it hit him and “knocked the breath” out of Dorian.

The sheer size of Mike caused that SUV door to close back at Darren Wilson and he was PISSED. Instantly pissed.

He reached through that window and grabbed Mike Brown in anger. Several eyewitnesses saw Mike Brown TRYING HARD to get away.

And, if he didn’t know about the store incident, the SUV reversal alone is a deep insight into the energy and anger Darren Wilson possessed.

Remember, all he knew is that Mike Brown & Dorian Johnson were jaywalking AND he PULLED AWAY. He left. WILSON came back for the conflict.

If only he had kept driving away…

His goal was to kill someone black that day!

Note that this fits exactly with Dorian Johnson’s account. All of the eyewitness accounts match up perfectly. It’s the police who are lying and changing their story.

I love the positive and honest reactions to the last scene where Viola Davis strips herself from her wig, eyelashes, and makeup. So raw, so real.

I audibly laughed at this part. 

I’m so behind on these. Inktober Witch ACEOs - - 10 - 11
