In case you still don’t understand how badly women have had it, when anaesthetic was first invented doctors weren’t allowed to give it to women who were giving birth because the church said that the pain of childbirth was God punishing women for not being men

I do not own these pics. They were sent to me in an email. But I thought I’d share with you all because they’re just AMAZING.







I feel so stupid I didn’t know they could fly, I thought they were like CHICKENS, I never questioned it because these pictures never circulate, I am WAY OVER MY HEAD.

Arizona Superintendent of schools outs himself as anonymous Internet troll who calls poor people ‘lazy pigs’
Arizona state schools Superintendent John Huppenthal admitted this week that he was the person who had been posting controversial anonymous messages on Internet websites, including one that likened poor people to “lazy pigs.”
For several months, writers at Blog for Arizona have suspected that Huppenthal was the commenter who had been posting inflammatory comments at their site and others.
“We now know that (Franklin D. Roosevelt) was almost completely responsible for the great depression,” a user named Falcon9 wrote last year in the Blog for Arizona comments area. “Only in liberal mythology did FDR ‘save’ the nation. … Worse yet, Roosevelt’s disastrous economic policies drug down the whole world and directly led to the rise of a no-name hack named Adolph Hitler who was going nowhere until Germany’s economy went into the tank.”
Falcon9 also wrote that “job creators are being taxed to death,” while “Obama is rewarding the lazy pigs with food stamps (44 million people), air-conditioning, free health care, flat-screen TVs (typical of ‘poor’ families).”
At another Arizona website, Seeing Red AZ, a user named Thucydides opined that it had been “Darwin, not Hitler, who named the Germans the master race.”
He added, “It was Darwin who expressed approval of eliminating both Jews and Africans. Hitler worked to eliminate the Jews. Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood was given the job of eliminating African-Americans. Hitler fed 6 million Jews into the ovens. Sanger has fed 16 million African-Americans into the abortion mills.”
After blogger Bog Lord speculated this week that the online comments had been posted by Huppenthal, Arizona’s superintendent of schools fessed up.
“I love talking about public policy, and I have a passion for engaging in debate,” Huppenthal told The Arizona Republic. “I probably have 300,000 words out on the Internet, and 100 of them are getting me in trouble. When all of your missteps are there all together for people to see, it’s not a pretty picture.”
In an email to the paper, Huppenthal said there was value in commenting anonymously “as our founding fathers believed when they developed the Federalist Papers.”
He argued  his “blog entries may have been taken completely out of context or perhaps misunderstood.”
“In participating in these blogs, unfortunately, I have occasionally dipped into the morass of incivility, that I myself find intolerable,” he continued. “I sincerely do regret that.”
An op-ed published by The Arizona Republic on Thursday blasted Huppenthal for using anonymity to avoid accountability for his comments.
“The anonymous Internet is revealing,” the op-ed noted. “It shows us what a person really believes, what he holds deep in his heart. What he dares not say publicly.”
“But once you take the oath of office, a higher standard of accountability applies,” the editorial board concluded. “Citizens should know who they are voting for. Someone who truly has a passion for public policy would understand this.”

John Green, you are fucking garbage. I can’t believe you allow children to look up to you. I can’t believe I looked up to you. You are disgusting and you fucking know full well that impressionable kids, especially girls, will defend this and believe you and internalize misogyny because you act like it’s something that can be ignored.
You must be really fucking proud of yourself. I fear for the future of your child, and what you will teach them. I fucking pray you never have a daughter because teaching her something like this is so fucking dangerous I can’t even wrap my mind around why you would ever think THIS KIND OF THINKING IS BENEFICIAL TO ANYONE BUT YOURSELF. I hope your wife raises your child properly cause you certainly fucking won’t.
I am so fucking ashamed that I ever thought you were respectable or cool or inspiring. I don’t know what I was thinking. I’m so fucking disgusted with myself for believing you were a good person. How fucking dare you. 

This doesn’t look like a real tweet and I can’t find it on his twitter.

Edit: never mind. It’s real.
