“Five years ago I found myself submerged in an online fetish and kink community. This exposure really affected my relationship with the human form, and my relationship with my own body. Over time, I have found outlets for positive exhibitionism both online via instagram and in real time. There’s a real community for this type of image sharing. It is empowering. Documenting and displaying my body and my sexual freedom has become complicated as it confuses the male audience. They see my body as an invitation for approach and imposition, and my interest in the body’s self expression, has become a platform for unsolicited, and uncomfortable remarks.
I receive messages like, “U ARE SO HOT,” “Ur body is perfect,” “Are you looking for a boyfrennn?” or “Are you a lesbian?” On the off-chance, I’ll receive messages from strangers with nothing but an image of their erect penis enclosed. I want to be clear: though this is content that I share publicly, it is not material for onlookers to take ownership of. My posts, no matter how revealing, do not imply or give consent. I don’t think it’s shocking to hear that the community is quite divisive when it comes to the participation of men and women. I was recently at a kink event where a male stranger confided in me that, “consent is half the battle.” I’m constantly wondering where we draw the line on what is and isn’t sexual assault. Where along the line did the female body become an open invitation for unsolicited remarks and behaviour from men who have been socialized to believe they have ownership over our bodies? For instance, in other public arenas such as strip clubs and casinos, there are very clear rules about touching and exposure. Other anecdotes that come to mind are the countless times clothing is blamed for sexual assault. “She was asking for it,” and “What were you wearing?” have become go-to scapegoats in assault cases, leaving us completely arrested in our own bodies, regardless of how we identify ourselves sexually.” #HERstories #makeportraits

Teruyo is a restauranteur in Tokyo and activist from the Ainu culture, an indigenous community of northern Japan. She’s fighting for the survival of her mother tongue, which is spoken at varying levels of fluency by an unknown number of people. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, Ainu speakers faced harsh persecution by the state, with legislation forbidding their language’s use in the public sphere, including education. As a consequence, only 10 native speakers remain. 

However, while the Ainu language was pushed to the brink of extinction, the Ainu people have since launched a lively revivalist movement, especially among younger generations. As a result, L2 speakers are on the rise, and an Ainu-language magazine has been in circulation since 1997. Nonetheless, the movement receives little support from the Japanese government.

Today, there are more than 3,000 language communities facing a similarly precarious future, pushing back against centuries of repression and marginalization. We’re building tools to help language activists like Teruyo document, share, and sustain their ways of speaking.

Here’s how you can help:

1) Share this post with your friends and family.

2) Pledge any amount on Kickstarter, and we’ll match your contribution.

3) Get 10 friends to join you in pledging.

Thank you, tangkyu, 御拝ど, takk fyri, +7000 more :)

If the world were ending tomorrow Taylor's gonna regret not spending her time with her friends and being out and having fun with them but instead she is just isolated inside her house with no one else

im so tired of the idea that taylors become a hermit and doesnt see people. That just doesnt mesh with her personality and you all know that. i thought it was a given that everyone realized that what is shared on social media is shared on purpose ……. so that said, everyone must then know that lots of things take place that arent documented & shared for the public to see in pics and videos. 

How to let your superiors know you ended up doing 100% of the work on a project without sounding like a whiny tattletale?

Doing a research project with three other students for a professor and two grad students. Literally did all the work. 100% of it. Not even sure if they logged onto the shared document once. And it’s for a research conference next spring, not just a class project or something.

I’m emailing it to the grad students and professor tomorrow. How would I go about indicating that I was the only one who even touched the project? Is there a way to do so without sounding annoying? I just want them to know how much care I put into this project and maybe indicate that these other two are not great to work with for future posters/publications.

Any tips are welcome! Especially from grad students or profs.

When Canadian Scientists Were Muzzled by Their Government
American scientists should learn from their northern neighbors. Reject interference. Stay vigilant. Stay scientists.
By Wendy Palen

The trump cabal, and the right-wing extremists in the Congress and in state capitals, have commenced a process, politically motivated, to stifle scientific inquiry and sharing with the public of the results of scientific inquiry. Canada went through a similar period recently during the Stephen Harper leadership era. This essay addresses that.

Excerpt:

Just as the American science community is now struggling with whether to speak out and march or stay quiet and do its work, Canadian scientists wrestled with the same questions. Ultimately, Canada’s scientific community came together to save our research, galvanized support to fight back, and captured the attention and concern of the public. I hope our experience — in the spirit of science transcending borders — can be instructive.

Here’s our advice as the Trump administration gears up. Spotlight and champion scientists’ refusal to kowtow to intimidation. Come together, speak up and speak out. Scientists must recognize and fight political censorship, while they remain vigilant for political interference. Share documents widely and back up data in a secure location if the administration politicizes or interferes in research.

Evidence and objective reality are the foundation of successful policy and governance. Openness is as vital to science as it is to democracy. We cannot allow hard-won knowledge to be ignored or distorted. To fight the snuffing of the light of scientific inquiry, learn from your neighbors to the north. Reject interference. Stay vigilant and stay vocal. In other words, stay scientists.

MOST FUCKING HILARIOUS THING HAPPENED TODAY

ALRIGHT, PROBABLY MOST PEOPLE ARE NOT GOING TO READ THIS, BUT IN MY SCHOOL THERE IS THIS ONE FRIEND OF MINE OUT OF AN AWESOME FRIEND GROUP WHO CONSTANTLY SHARES DOCUMENTS WITH US. ON THERE SHE CURSES, SAYS SOME INAPPROPRIATE THINGS, AND POSTS SOME INAPPROPRIATE PICTURES. WHAT WE DID NOT KNOW IS THAT ALL OF THOSE DOCUMENTS WERE SHARED DIRECTLY WITH OUR PRINCIPAL

AND BOY

WAS IT HILARIOUS

SO WE USUALLY TALK ABOUT STEVEN UNIVERSE, GRAVITY FALLS, UNDERTALE, AND JUST FANDOMS IN GENERAL. BUUUUT SOMEONE (I DON’T KNOW WHO) POSTED A PICTURE OF BILL CIPHER WITH A DICK. I DON’T KNOW WHY. THEY JUST DID. SO UH OUR PRINCIPAL FINDS OUT AND SHE ALL CALLS US DOWN. TBH, WE WERE ALL REALLY SCARED BECAUSE WE DIDN’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED AND WE DIDN’T KNOW ALL OF US WERE CALLED DOWN. UM, SO I MEET ONE OF MY FRIENDS IN THE HALLWAY WALKING DOWN, WE’RE LIKE “HOLY SHIT WHAT’S GOING ON.” AND WE WALK INTO THE OFFICE. THERE AS WE WALK INTO THE PRINCIPAL’S ROOM, WE MEET THE REST OF OUR GANG. AND I’M THINKING “fuck.” AND I’M THE ONLY SEVENTH GRADER THERE AMONG EIGTH GRADERS. SO UH OUR PRINCIPAL TALKS ABOUT THIS AND I KNOW THAT I’M TRYING NOT TO BURST OUT INTO LAUGHTER

ESPECIALLY WHEN SHE SAYS

“There was a photo of an inappropriate triangle on that document.”

AND I WAS THINKING “HOLY SHIT THIS IS HILARIOUS.”

NOT TO MENTION ONE OF MY FRIENDS WAS RAGING OVER THINKING SHE LOST A FIGURINE OF DIPPER PINES AND JUST KEPT ON REPEATING THE WORD “FUCK” OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

SO UH TO END THE STORY

WE DIDN’T GET IN TROUBLE, BUT WORD SPREAD AROUND ABOUT THE “Inappropriate triangle.” FOR THE EIGTH GRADERS I THINK. AND IT IS FRICKEN HILARIOUS. OH MY GOD I LOVE MY SCHOOL. OKAY THIS IS A STUPID STORY YEH *thumbs up*

People can tell me selfies are narcissistic all they want but that’s not gonna stop me from taking pictures of myself, because while you’re over there refusing to look in a mirror lest someone else thinks you *gasp* like yourself, I’ll be over here marveling at all the pictures I’ve got that document all the changes in my life while at the same time boosting my self-confidence

Today, I fucked up... by emailing my professor my masturbation, drinking and smoking schedule

I am someone who likes to keep everything in order and articulately planned out. So I plan out everything, about a week in advance, including studying, class, even when I masturbate, drink and smoke weed. It just helps me keep my life in order. I keep this all in a google doc entitled “schedule.”

Anyway, the semester has started and one of my history professors asks to see my research schedule for the thesis I am working on with them. I think “oh this will be easy, I have already planned that out in my semester calendar.” I will just email them a link to my schedule. So I do that and go about my day.

Later, I go and check my academic calendar, a google doc entitled “dates,” and then, I realize my mistake. No body is shared on this document. My professor must have my “schedule,” which contains all my frequent vices.

I frantically check my email to find my professors reply that they were surprised at how thorough I scheduled my days but that some of my information was “inappropriate, but useful to have scheduled.” I apologized and sent them the correct document. Next class should be sufficiently awkward.

Berkshire's Apple Gain Is $1.6 Billion; Purchase Price Disclosed

Berkshire Hathaway Inc.’s gain on Apple Inc. is more than $1.6 billion after shares of the iPhone maker surged.

The stake of 61.2 million shares was acquired last year for $6.75 billion, an average of about $110.17 apiece, according to the annual report Saturday from Berkshire, which is led by billionaire Chairman Warren Buffett. The holding was valued at more than $8.3 billion as of Friday’s $136.66 closing price.

Berkshire became one of the top 10 Apple investors in 2016, taking a stake of more than 9 million shares in the first quarter and then accelerating purchases in the last three months of the year. While regulatory documents from an insurance subsidiary showed that the initial purchases were for an average of $99.49 a share, Saturday’s document offers details on the entire stake as of Dec. 31.

Buffett’s company bought $12 billion in stocks after the Nov. 8 U.S. election, the billionaire told Charlie Rose on Jan. 27. The move was well-timed as stocks rallied into this year on optimism that President Donald Trump’s policies will stoke growth.
