OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer was charged Friday with 16 counts including first-degree rape and sexual battery after being accused of assaulting at least eight women while on patrol.
Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure. Holtzclaw, a former standout football player in high school and college, was arrested Aug. 21. He remained in custody on a $5 million cash bond Friday, according to jail records.
He is accused of stopping women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while on duty in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, and police said there may be more victims.

This is also happening in Iraq right now. Many young girls are taking up arms to fight and protect their families against terrorist militants who are trying to slaughter them…
If a gay woman keeps her sexual identity secret while she’s single in order to avoid discrimination, we don’t accuse her of co-opting straight privilege – we sympathize with her for feeling the need to closet herself. So why the double standard for bisexuals?
It might not apply to you, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t straight-looking femme lesbians, or androgynous-looking, rainbow-wearing, alternative-haircut-having bisexuals. My point is that that comment oversimplifies and overgeneralizes things in a way that seems unreasonable to me.
Found this in a bathroom at my college. A lot of guys had eating disorders in football and wrestling at my school and even in the rec league. I remember guys taking laxatives before weigh ins even.
Male eating disorder awareness ~
Wrestling is infamous for that kind of shit. It’s one of the reasons my brother left the sport— his coaches were ENCOURAGING him to engage in unsafe behavior.
I’ve seen a lot of it the other way round, especially in rugby, I know several men who were encouraged to go to unsafe measures to gain weight.
Yes. ^^^ The masculinization of eating disorders. I knew some wrestling guys back in high school - it became this competition as to who could lose then keep of their weight the best. The guys would have competitions to see who could go the longest without eating, and if you lost, of course, you were a “pussy”
Thankfully a suspension went on while they reviewed these practices that were of course encouraged by the coaches.
Why is it when I see a white girl with a tattoo on her thigh i think sexy? But a Latina I think ghettos as fuck?
because youre racist
Fitness magazines don’t help us get fit. Gazing at images of caricatured breasts, buttocks and biceps gives you the impression this is how a fit body should look, that every fit body needs to be shaped in the same vein. Fitness magazines use exactly these images to “inspire” women to look this way. Yet most of us can’t identify with what we are looking at because we don’t believe ordinary us could ever be them.
[…] What are we teaching our young women who want desperately to believe that they too can be as ripped and shredded? They don’t realize what it takes to look so tight. They want to be there and harm themselves to reach an almost unattainable ideal. When will it be acceptable to lift heavy, building confidence and brainpower while strengthening your body, not concerning yourself with how cute your bottom looks in booty shorts?
[…] Being fit in a functional rather than sexual way means you are entirely capable of being powerful no matter what your height, bust size, shoe size or hair color. You are empowered from the depths of your DNA because you did the work, you earned your place and you walk confidently because of it. A functionally fit You welcomes all sizes, shapes and colors, your boobs and butt are incidental. What we really need to build in the gym is a sense of self and what we are capable of.
!!! But add boys/men
We’re talking about women right now.
Or we can talk about everybody because there’s an unrealistic expectation for men as well as women
A word to everyone who reblogs posts with responses like the above:
If you actually cared about men’s issues, you wouldn’t tack them on as an afterthought to a woman’s conversation: You’d instead be actively engaging in dialogues that explore the nuances of men’s problems in society. You wouldn’t simply wait until a woman is speaking and then shout “Yeah, men too!” You’d talk about these things independently and give men the attention that they deserve as individuals, instead of waiting for a woman to do the work, shouldering her aside and then insisting that men be given a spot on the stage too.
If you actually cared about women’s issues, you wouldn’t demand that they give up their space. You’d recognize that conversations by women and about women are perfectly valid. When a woman is talking about her personal experiences and the way social pressures have affected her life, you wouldn’t allow her to be interrupted or derailed. You wouldn’t actively talk over her or steal away attention, focusing on issues that are outside of her point, until the conversation drifts so far away that you aren’t even discussing women anymore.
So both now and in the future, my answer here is going to remain the same: Can we talk about everyone?
We’re still talking about women right now.
All right, so I bet you guys are freaked out with all that stuff about the Ghost Month, but hey, guess what? After that, [this Sunday, the 28th of August] it’s the next month, so all of us are gearing up here for the Mid-Autumn Festival!
It’s also known as 中秋节 Zhongqiu Jie in Chinese, and it falls on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month, at the end of Fall Harvest. But since lots of us live in cities, we just celebrate it because it’s cool to eat mooncakes and carry/light lanterns, or even make them float.
And you know I’m like, so going to tell you a story about how this came about, and it goes something like this:
So like, a long time ago, there was this archer who was the best in the land, called Hou Yi. He had a real pretty maiden for a wife and her name was Chang-E. Hou Yi was a real mighty warrior, so mighty that he’d saved Chang-E from a river monster, but that’s for like another post. Oh yeah. In case you were wondering, Hou Yi is the dude in the two smaller pictures. Anyway, in this version of the story, Hou Yi and Chang-E were like, immortals who came down to the earth.
Back then, the earth was a real shitty place to live in, because there were like, 10 suns heating up the earth everyday. You know the drill, right? There were too many suns, nothing could grow, people were dying of heatstroke and what not, So the King of the Eastern Heavens summoned Hou Yi, and said, “Dude, you gotta tell these suns to stop, quick!”
You can kinda guess what happened next. I mean, since Hou Yi was an ace archer, he nearly shot all the suns down. But the last sun pleaded with him and was all like, “Please don’t kill me, bro! If you do, the entire earth would be dark and no shit could ever grow!” Smart move.” So Hou Yi was all like, “K,” and he went back to the King to tell him that he’d accomplished his mission.
The funny thing is, the suns were actually the King’s sons, and they were sun-birds, or something of the like, and so when the King heard that all but one had been killed, he had a hissy fit. He was so pissed off that he stripped Hou Yi and his wife of immortality, and essentially said that they could f&*^ themselves for all he cared.
Hou Yi didn’t give a shit about heaven, but he didn’t like dying, because he was conceited enough to think he should live forever. Whatevs. You know how epic warriors are.
Anyways, he like, went to look for the Queen Mother of the West, and he told her the whole story, made her sympathize with him, and she was like, “Kay, I’m gonna give you a pill, so split it between you and your wife and you’ll be immortal forever.” So he brought the pill home, but he had urgent matters to attend to, so he left the house again. All this time, he didn’t spend enough time with Chang-E, and she felt that she and Hou Yi were like, totally drifting apart, and he was also like, becoming more and more arrogant, boasting about how all the mortals worshipped him and stuff. She was fed-up with all his shit, and so she opened the box, and took the pill.
Hou Yi came back, and was all, “What is this, I don’t even - ” ‘cause he saw Chang-E ascending to the moon. He cursed and swore and all that, and became really pissed off after that.
This is the part where I say, and that’s why we commemorate Chang-E during this festival, but I bet you’d wanna know what happened to Hou Yi after that.
So basically Hou Yi was made King amongst the humans after slaying the suns, but after Chang-E left he became this dictator and pissed off lots of people. He also taught people archery, and his best student was Feng Meng. Feng Meng was also real proud like Hou Yi, and challenged him to an archery contest but lost. Hou Yi was pretty much all, “Bitch, please. You can’t beat the master at his own game.” Feng Meng got real pissed off and wanted to kill him, so he waited and waited.
When Hou Yi was hunting, he and his gang of dissidents clubbed him to death from the back. So much for being immortal. Some people say his spirit ascended to the sun to build a palace, They made Hou Yi a symbol of the sun and Chang-E the moon, so maybe Hou Yi did get his wish after all. Also, Hou Yi and Chang-E are supposed to symbol Yang and Ying energies respectively. Betcha didn’t know that.
Coming up next: Why we eat mooncakes, and why a rabbit and a woodcutter accompany Chang-E on the moon.
Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!
Excuse you, Rei.
Thanks for sending this, it’s been buried in my likes!
More dogs with their babies.
