why do you hurt me so
oh my fucking god why am i tearing up this is ridiculous
This is super cute! So, to all of you who are sobbing, let me tell you the truth of the matter. Wooly Bear caterpillars are born in autumn/early winter, and live as far north as the arctic. They freeze over the winter months, completely solid. Then, come spring time, they thaw out, and turn into an Isabella Tiger moth. So this little guy/girl is going to have a very happy memory to dream about over the winter. And you can all stop crying now. :)
omg thank you
#DID YOU JUST GIVE ME FEELS OVER A CATERPILLAR
LOOK IT’S SO FLUFFY AND HAPPY!!

'I wish I’d pushed them off the stage': Model furious after topless protesters 'ruin' Paris fashion show
The biggest shock of Paris’s spring-summer 2014 fashion shows came on the otherwise calm and gentle Nina Ricci catwalk, when two topless activists from protest group Femen crashed the podium.
Grabbing a startled model making her way down the catwalk, they screamed “fashion fascism,” with words decrying the sexualization of the modeling industry written in make-up. One had “Fashion dictaterror” scrawled on her naked torso, the other “Model don’t go to brothel.”
One British model, Liverpool-born Hollie-May Saker, was caught in the middle, with the protesters brushing against her lamé-and-lace skirt.
“The next thing I just see half-naked women with black marker pen scrawled across their bare chests and that’s when she came at me….As she grabbed my arm she lifted my skirt exposing me – I pulled my arm back with such force that I landed a punch square on her nose,” Saker told the Echo.

So, to fight back against the sexualization of the modeling industry, these women assaulted a model and forcibly exposed her?
Protip: You’re not fighting a patriarchal system by assaulting women and exposing them against their will.
I have literally never heard of a positive thing done by Femen. Seriously. They need to stop. First the blatant Islamophobia, and now this? Really?
If your idea of feminism includes racist bullshit and attacking women who don’t conform to your exact image of a feminist, guess what? You’re a complete asshole and you’re misrepresenting feminism as a whole.
I *hate* Femen. Literally they are the reason feminism is viewed in a bad light. They’re the West Borough Baptist of feminism and I can’t stand it.
wasn’t it discovered earlier this year that FEMEN is run entirely by some rich israeli dude who required women to submit topless ‘audition’ photos before they can officially become a member
im pretty sure it’s not an actual feminist organization at all it’s really fucked up
white feminism bankrolled and controlled by old rich white dudes
FEMEN is about as far from a legitimate feminist organization as you can get.
Yo I’ve reblogged this before but the article linked above is so crazy important it’s not even funny.

Agony of the rabbits plucked alive for your fluffy jumpers
WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT: These sought-after knits are produced from the fur of the angora rabbit — giant balls of fluff with tiny faces peeking out, bred for their long, soft wool.
Please, please don’t buy angora products!
Since this “investigation” was conducted by PeTA it’s legitimacy is dubious, at best. PeTA has a record of staging videos to gain support for their views.
I’m pretty sure keeping the animal in such terrible conditions would affect the fur quality, and so would yanking it out with your hands? Anyways, aren’t Angora’s sheared like sheep?
you can even use kids scissers, which I can’t spell here is a video if anyone is courious http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJokunZfwpo
ACTUALLY as a fibers nerd I can tell you that hand-plucking a Satin or French angora during its shedding periods a few times a year is good for them (it prevents matting! You must remove it for the rabbit’s comfort and health!). In fact, it can actually be quite soothing! It’s not at all uncommon to see angoras plopped happily in the laps of their owners at fiber arts shows, plenty of them having yarn spun directly off them or plucked carefully for a later time. When it’s time to shed, it’s also not uncommon to see puffs all around their cages from it just falling out of the rabbit.
Shearing and cutting, though, is more proper for English, Giant, and German angoras, as they shed infrequently and the lengths to which it can grow become uncomfortable for the rabbit. Cutting with scissors is best for these breeds.

Westboro stated intentions to picket Sandy Hook victim funerals, so Anonymous hacked them, and published everything. - Imgur
bless you Anonymous
“While we certainly do not condone illegal activity, it is hard not to root for Anonymous as they take it to these sad, pathetic excuses for human beings from the Westboro Baptist Church.”
Of course, Westboro denied the charges and taunted Anonymous as incompetent hackers. They claimed their website was protected by God. Big mistake. A few days later, while a Westboro spokeswoman was boasting about how the church foiled Anonymous on a radio talk show, an Anonymous spokesman called in and hacked the church’s website in real time on the air.
CRYING WITH LAUGHTER
