Korrasami by rongs1234

The Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage nationwide today. To celebrate this historical milestone, this week's Fan Art Friday will highlight some of my favorite yuri (female) pairings, both canon or otherwise.



The Legend of Korra and Asami by LemiaCrescent

Of course, I have to include some Korrasami. And for all of the butthurt fans complaining about this couple, get over it! The couple is canon. The creators confirmed it. Now love it or leave it!



Uranus+Neptune by KeyshaKitty

We also have to include the original animated lesbian couple, Sailor Uranus and Neptune. (And for those who grew up with the English dub, no, they are not "cousins." They are, indeed, a couple. You can thank soccer moms for tht regressive edit.)



Sorry I'm not made of sugar by CactusBunny

Again, before anyone asks, yes, it is hinted that Princess Bubblegum and Marceline had a fling prior to the show, and that they may still have chemisty between each other. Of course, the creators can't express that in the show because, otherwise, they would not be able to market the show in countries with less than favorable views of "teh gays."



Commission: Lyra and Bon Bon by alexielart

At this point, I'm still on the fence whether or not Lyra and Bon Bon are friends or "friends." Either way, it doesn't matter, because the fans have made them the Bert and Ernie of the MLP franchise.



AppleDash by Stein225

I prefer my Apples with "Caramel", and my Rainbows to be "Soarin", but Appledash is an okay fan couple.



IDK by SunnyQ

Meh, I don't care for Rarijack (because it's such a crack pairing), but, meh, I guess they look good together.



Pearl/Rose magnet by inicka

Yes, before you ask, Pearl did have unreciprocated romantic feelings towards Steven's mother, Rose Quartz, and if you had any doubts about that before, the past few episodes during the Steven Bomb should have rectified them.


This last picture I'm going to post as a link, as it does contain spoilers for those who've never watch Steven Universe. If you've seen the first season finale, you know who they are, but otherwise, do not click at your own risk. (And before anyone asks, yes, they are a romantic couple, and the creators confirmed it.)

Also, I wanted to include some NSFW art, but as I can't actually show it in my post, I'll just link to them. Here's Korra and Asami oiling up on the beach, Marceline and Bubblegum snuggling in bed, Applejack and Rainbow Dash waking up from a night of loving, Rarity and Applejack having fun in the shower, and Sailor Moon and Bayonetta enjoying a lollipop. (Wow, talk about quite the crack pairing!)

Statist And Anarchist: IKEA
Private companies that voluntarily raised their minimum wage without the government forcing them to:
Most statists would use these companies as reasons why the government should raise the minimum wage. Personally, I’d use them as reasons why the government doesn’t need to. If companies are able to pay their employees at higher rates, then by all means, let them raise their wages by themselves.

To learn why having the government raise minimum wage is a bad idea, read this comic here.

Statist And Anarchist: Marriage Equality
The Supreme Court recently legalized gay marriage across the country. Now, along with Adam marrying Eve, Adam can marry Steve, and Madam can marry Eve; However, Adam is yet able to marry both Eve and Steve. With gay marriage finally legalized, it's time we take the next step towards achieving true marriage equality. It’s time to legalize polygamy!

Slate


Pixar has been experiencing a bit of a creative slump since Toy Story 3. Most of its films since then have either been lackluster sequels to otherwise good movies (Monsters University and Cars 2) or lackluster movies of otherwise good concepts (Brave). The next few years don't see anything changing with many more proposed sequels on the horizon (Finding Dory and Incredibles 2). However, the company may have managed to rise above its creative malaise with its most recent film--and the box office numbers confirm this!

Pixar's newest movie, Inside Out, made its box office premiere with a bang with a $91 million gross, which, according to Slate, is "enough to eclipse Avatar’s $77 million debut and claim the largest-ever opening for an original property." In a summer otherwise plagued with sequels and remakes, this movie proves that original ideas are not only possible, but extremely profitable. Hopefully, this box-office success with encourage Pixar and other movie companies to start creating films that isn't more of the same.

But this is but the cherry on-top of this week's good news, which includes a good guy with a gun stopping a bad guy with a gun, a plane traveling around the world without a single drop of fuel, and scientists curing cancer with bubbles--f***ing bubbles! Read the rest of the good news below:



High Times


Good Policy

The White House just took a major step forward for medical marijuana. (PolicyMic) "The Obama administration has removed a major regulatory barrier standing in the way of desperately needed research into medical marijuana. On Monday, the Office of National Drug Control Policy, which oversees the United States' overall drug-fighting efforts, announced it will no longer require scientists seeking to study medical marijuana to pass a stifling Public Health Service review process."

Senate passes amendment to ban torture as US policy. (Al Jazeera) "The Senate voted 78 to 21 to approve a defense bill amendment that bans torture. It was introduced by Republican Sen. John McCain and Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein. The amendment bolsters current law and makes the U.S. Army Field Manual on interrogations the standard for all interrogations conducted by the U.S. government. It also gives the International Committee of the Red Cross access to every detainee held by the U.S."

In major victory for property rights, SCOTUS strikes down USDA seizure of California raisins. (Reason) "In a decision issued today in Horne v. Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the USDA’s raisin confiscation scheme as an unconstitutional violation of the Fifth Amendment."

Seattle plans to turn its dark alleys into bright community hubs. (Good) "City officials announced plans to renovate and refurbish a number of Seattle’s alleys with both structural and cosmetic improvements, in order to 'turn these utilitarian passageways into inspiring and enlivening elements of the city.'"



Twitter


Good Science

Solar-powered airplane makes historic flight around the world without fossil fuel. (Upworthy) "The single-passenger plane collects solar energy via panels atop its wings, storing that in four batteries located behind the pilot. This allows the plane to fly at night and, in theory, means that as long as the equipment allowed, it could go on flying, well, forever."

A scientist is working on a revolutionary way to treat cancer, and it involves bubbles. (Upworthy) "Dr. Eleanor Stride is an engineer and scientist who's been working on a way to deliver drugs through tiny micro-bubbles injected into the bloodstream. With chemotherapy, the bubbles would target the cancer cells and go after them instead of flooding the entire body with the toxic substance."

Google is reportedly in talks to back the largest wind power project in Africa. (Business Insider) "Google wants to back Kenya’s Lake Turkana Wind Power Project, a massive undertaking that will require more than $700 million. The project will span 40,000 acres, raise Kenya’s energy capacity by 20 percent, and be an enormous boon to a country where less than 25% of the population has access to power."

Germ-zapping doorknob could get a handle on bathroom bacteria. (Take Part) "Thanks to a science fair project from two Hong Kong teenagers, 17-year-old Sum Ming Wong and 18-year-old Kin Pong Li, [the] handle-to-hand bacteria transmission cycle might soon be disrupted. The duo has created a door handle that zaps 99.8 percent of the bacteria on people’s palms and fingers."



Upworthy


Good Deeds

To get love, you give love. Let a woman from San Francisco show you how she does it. (Upworthy) "For Shannon Weber, it all started with a simple love note on a fridge. A mom of three, Shannon wanted her kids to have a little reminder of her love all the time, so she stuck a note on her fridge. Seeing it every day made her (and her kids!) feel so great that she started placing love notes all over town; she wanted others to feel the same amazing positive mojo...It's been four years since Shannon's kitchen note, and her movement has grown."

See a company that only hires people deemed 'unemployable.' (Upworthy) "It's at a place called Sun Cedar, and they will only hire you if you're a reformed felon or a recovering addict or homeless. Essentially, if you've been deemed as 'unemployable' in today's workforce, you're just who they are looking for."

Something great happened when a group put $40 on a bulletin board in a crowded L.A. train station. (Upworthy) "If you were walking through a busy train station and saw a bulletin board full of dollar bills, what would you do? A group in L.A. recently set out to answer that question. They tacked $40 onto a bulletin board in Los Angeles' Union Station with a simple message: Give what you can, take what you need...The board worked like a charm."

An Uber driver with a concealed handgun prevented a mass shooting in Chicago. (Chicago Tribune) "Authorities say no charges will be filed against an Uber driver who shot and wounded a gunman who opened fire on a crowd of people in Logan Square over the weekend. The driver had a concealed-carry permit and acted in the defense of himself and others, Assistant State's Attorney Barry Quinn said in court Sunday."






Having run my blog for more than five years, I’ve gained my fair share of both lovers and haters. As you can tell from the “colorful” comments I posted above, some of my haters have been particularly creative in expressing their disdain towards me. Especially in my earlier years, I’ve been engaged in endless flame and block wars with trolls and haters, some of whom even drew comics about me killing myself (sorry, I don’t have that example to share). My experience on Tumblr, dealing with the feminist hate mob, was especially worse, to the point where I inevitably had to take off and leave that Celestia-forsaken site.

So yes, boys and girls, contrary to what internet trolls will tell you, the internet IS serious business. This is not about free speech. Death and rape threats are not free speech. Doxxing someone’s personal information and leaking it is not free speech. Posting naked photos of your girlfriend because she dumped your sorry ass is not free speech. Sending a SWAT team to someone’s house because they pwned you in an online game is not free speech. Online harassment is not free speech. It is serious f***ing business, and John Oliver was correct to highlight this very real and very serious problem.



However, as you can probably guess, I do have a few minor issues with his segment—the least of which was him showcasing Anita Sarkessien and Briana Wu as poster childs of harassment. (Though as much as I detest those two, I do not believe they deserve the level of violent vitriol being flung at them.)

First off, let’s address John’s insipid “white penis” remark. As I just showed, I’ve received my fair share of violent harassment, and I’m a dude with a “white penis.” Many dudes with “white penises” have received such harassment and worse. In fact, studies show that dudes with “white penises” are actually harassed more online than women without “white penises.” And no, feminists, this isn’t me “derailing” an issue: this is me demanding that we focus on all victims of an issue and not just a select few to fit a political narrative. Online harassment affects everyone, not just women, and ignoring the male victims does them more harm than good.

And then there’s John asinine reaction towards “don’t take naked pictures.” Apparently, to him, advising women that they should avoid taking naked pictures to prevent them from being leaked online is like advising someone to avoid living in a house to avoid burglary. Wow, that’s a pant-on-head retarded analogy! People live in houses for their own basic survival. That's something you can't avoid. People take naked pictures of themselves for their own gratification. Most people go without taking naked pictures on a daily basis. So, yeah, the best way not to have naked pictures of yourself leaked online is to not take naked pictures in the first place. I don’t even know why you would take naked pictures of yourself for no other reason than to have other people look at it. If you don’t want others to see you naked, then don’t get naked. That's not "victim blaming"! Creeps who leak naked pictures are responsible for their own actions, but sometimes, their actions are easily prevented and curtailed by taking precaution.

This segment would have been vastly improved if John had included other more gender-neutral examples of online harassment such as doxing and swatting. Being sent a death threat online may be traumatizing enough, but having a team of jackbooted thugs break into your home in the middle of the night and point military-grade weaponry in your face because some twerp online sent them to your house as revenge for you beating them in Call of Duty—well, I’d wager that’s much more PTSD-inducing!

As I said before, online harassment is a serious issue, but people like John Oliver do people no service by addressing an issue that affects everyone and focusing solely on a few affected by it.

I've never really gotten into the whole gay marriage thing; but you're one of the more educated people on this website that I support, so why should I support the supreme court's decision? I really don't agree how the government should get involved in these kind's of things.

Theoretical question for you sir:

Let's assume that the incumbent president is running for re-election and both his/her party and the opposition do not secure an electoral majority due to whatever circumstances there are. Naturally, the House of Representatives would decide the President while the Senate decides on the VP. Assuming that the Senate reaches a rare 50-50 tie, the incumbent Vice President could use his power as President of the Senate to vote himself as the next VP correct?

Hey Blame, I know were going have a considerable difference in opinion on the meaning and the significance of what has happened in the Supreme Court today, but I would still like to explain to you my position on the overall substance of this issue and everything that has been building up to this historical case these past several years in a rational and mature manner in a private note.

..it's simply too much to digest right here and now and I'm already embarrased over my decision to flood and pollute your comments section with my vapid inane vent about my distress over the death of James Horner earlier this week :stupidme: :ashamed: :facepalm:

I almost considered going as far as un-watching you :(  ..but I then realized that would not be the mature thing to do, and to end a four year long online friendship over something like this would be pretty indeed, not to mention it would logically require me to cut myself off and end more than half of my online friendships and to withdraw and become a social recluse completely :( 

And I suppose that this would be an especially unwise move since nearly all of my other closest friends that I have made online over the past couple of years are either gay or bisexual.

:confused:I don't know exactly how that happened, but I guess you could say in part that it's the consequence of being in the furry community and recently becoming more active within it :laughing: :roll: :shrug:
