If I was a famous author I would publish a book with ten different endings which all went to print with varying degrees of rarity, but not tell the fans about it so that I could watch their confusion as they disagree over how the story ended. Then when they figured it out I would ‘come clean’, telling them that I had released eleven alternate endings and watch them panic again as they all try to find the last ending.
This is perfect.
This doesn’t surprise me - I’ve long marveled at how crap Tumblr’s business model is - but I’m filled with trepidation at the Yahoo prospect. If we’re lucky, we’ll be able to keep our porn blogs but they’ll be plastered with ads we don’t want and can’t control. Fat blogs with “THE ONE DIET SECRET THEY DON’T WANT YOU TO KNOW!!!”. Feminist blogs with anti-abortion propaganda. I’ll consider myself lucky if I get an ad for kettlebells.
This could be ‘solved’ with a model of a nominal fee for annual use. There are SO many users on Tumblr. People might not like the idea, and I think it should be voluntary, but I’d rather pay a fee for a site I like than see the site get killed by Yahoo…
I found this nice tutorial/anatomy advice spread created by meghanhetrickof deviant art.

‘Mankind must not go back to hiding in fear. No one else will protect us, we must stand up for ourselves.’
Everyone is missing the biggest problem here.
Fuck the ads. Fuck the links. Fuck the email stuff.
Yahoo explicitly forbids pornography and sexually suggestive material on their websites and all affiliates.
That means no more porn on Tumblr.
Whatever shall I do? Wherever shall I go?
I dunno. I think the big problem is called ‘Yahoo’. All of the shit Yahoo does is just a part of the larger problem. >.>
Frankly, as much as it’ll hurt, if Tumblr goes to Yahoo, I’m stopping my blog, deleting my accounts (After saving all of my material) and finding a new home.
Dom & Sub is a body of illustrative work in digital media that attempts to humanize practitioners of BDSM and offer a representation of kinky sex that not only refutes negative stereotypes but informs the audience that sadomasochistic play is done best between happy, healthy, and consenting adults. I portrayed the couple in the work not only engaging in S&M play but also building a “scene” together and nurturing one another after the play has concluded; these are moments often left unconsidered or completely ignored in visual representations of S&M. I believe it’s important to see how kinky scenes are crafted with care, commitment to safety and enthusiastic consent in order to limit those times when sadomasochistic play is used to abuse or dehumanize other human beings. It is my hope that my audience will learn from the illustrations that sadomasochistic play is not always dark or scary, and that fellow ‘kinksters’ can enjoy tender representations of S&M that do not ridicule or pathologize them. I’ve designed the work to engage sadomasochistic imagery, material and theory with an ethical conscience.
YES YES YES
cute cute cute! <3
I like it.
And I know the artist knows what they’re talking about, because of that glass of water. I don’t think I’ve ever seen it depicted in BDSM art before! But the post-scene glass of water is A Thing. You get thirsty!
The only thing that could make me happier is if this series goes on to depict a bowl of M&Ms.
Love this. Brilliant view of what BDSM relationships really involve.
Especially the glass of water xD
Imagine if schools of criminal justice allowed you to major in sexual assault prevention and prosecution. Imagine these programs were incredibly well run, so you’d learn both how to shoot a gun and run a sting, and how to get survivors the services they need. I’m sure more women would sign up. Imagine that all kinds of female officers with degrees in this, and excellent physical training, were embedded in military units, hanging out at bars, talking their way into fraternity parties, and jogging alone.
Imagine an officer, dressed in a sparkly top, gets onto a car with a real nice guy. Sometimes, this will go just fine. The FTA hasn’t wasted its time when its agents ride on a plane and no terrorists strike. That’s fine! That’s a day’s work well done.
But sometimes, something will happen. And of course the officer is wearing a wire, so we’ll have it on tape when she expresses a clear lack of consent and some guy makes his move. And maybe she’s packing a gun, or maybe she sends a signal that brings in backup. Cops swarm the car and the guy is all like, “This was a setup!” And society is like, “Yes! A setup for catching rapists before they strike!”
The value of stings is also, of course, their deterrent effect. Imagine a world in which a potential rapist first has to worry about whether you might be a cop. Rapists would be constantly looking over their shoulders. Because they’re the ones who should be.
Law enforcement should set up Stings to catch rapists the way they do for other crimes
this is really bad i can’t stop thinking about turian j’on stewart and salarian stevan kolber
and, thanks to ladragonaria, krogan limbah of clan rush, angrily reporting on wrex and bakara and the dangers of their new salarian alliance ruining tuchanka this is the end
