As Obamacare Sign-Ups Surge, So Does Conservative Rage (via azspot)

My best friend can finally stop shredding her system with stress by working two full-time jobs just to afford health care.

Anyone, ANYONE who thinks that’s a bad thing can go fuck themselves.

(via vixyish)

On Tuesday I heard this radio broadcast where people are exclaiming over how Obamacare is full of US citizens who need but cannot afford health care and it’s placing an unexpected burden on the system.

And all the while I was sitting there thinking, “UNEXPECTED??”

Okay THIS. This needs to be on a flyer. To hand to the people who stand at the bus stops claiming that we must ACT UP and PROTECT MARRIAGE because, you know, somehow allowing two consenting adults to marry each other would destroy marriage as an institution.
(The sad thing is? There are people who thinks along the lines of hanging around tall people will make you taller. I know because I’ve literally been told that my eye color is lighter than norm because I have lived in the US of A —where there are blonde, blue eyed people, GASP.) (Though I suppose they could’ve also meant it was something in the food or water??) (Like BLEACH??? But then I’d be dead….) (Yeah IDEK: if the bus hadn’t come then I might’ve started an unprompted genetics lecture or something.)

Again, why I love the internet.  It’s nice knowing you’re not alone.


For C and A.

The “shit asexuals hear” portion isn’t nearly extensive enough, actually, but it should give you some idea.

neil-gaiman:

People are asking if that last post was a joke.

I don’t think so.

But even if it was, it wasn’t. It’s nothing I haven’t seen before, many times, either as hate mail that came in on the FAQ line over at neilgaiman.com, or in other corners of the web — the saddest of which was a letter from a…
