What to Expect When You Give a Child the Woman’s Surname
It’s no longer radical to keep your name, merge your SO’s name with a hyphen, or invent a new surname as a couple, but what is still radical is giving a child a woman’s surname (especially when the parents are married). What happened when Molly Caro May gave it a try is pretty telling.
Kill la Kill – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kill la Kill (キルラキル, Kiru ra Kiru) is an anime television series produced by Trigger. It follows vagrant schoolgirl Ryuko Matoi on her search for her father’s killer, which brings her into violent conflict with the iron-fisted student council president of Honnouji Academy, Satsuki Kiryuin, …
This has confused me since I was little, especially watching a lot of UK TV (which is basically on the other end of the nudity/violence spectrum in a lot of ways).
I can understand ratings and whatever… knowing what your in for is a good thing, but beyond "make sure the rating is accurate", restrictions on what can/can't be said/shown/etc on TV/Movies/Whatever is just silly… isn't it?
Is the Spanish language coverage of the World Cup racist?
Is The World Cup Commentary Racist?
While most of the World Cup attention is on the field, Felix Sanchez of the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts, says broadcasters’ racist commentary should be getting more attention.
My favorite teams don’t play till tomorrow, but today was just a small reminder of how infuriating this game can be. I don’t hide the fact that I’m not a fan of Brasil. Today was no exception. I was pulling for Croatia, and was surprised when they scored the first goal. Honestly, Brazil just looked nervous.
But then the referee started to mess things up. Many a good match has been ruined by shoddy calls, and today was no exception. It downright ruined the whole match for me. It makes me dread what’s to come, and then I wonder – isn’t it about time FIFA allowed an instant replay option? I forsee this happening in the future. Unfortunately, it’s not in time for this World Cup.

For years I tried to analyze and understand why I get so freakishly excited about this event. I was never a soccer fan per se growing up. My mom was a huge of the Mexican Liga team, America, and I can still remember all those times she hollered when they played. It was nuts.
In elementary, I was used as a goalkeeper. Until I got hit. Fast moving balls and I don’t mix.
But then there was this one time. Every summer I went to Mexico and stayed with my grandparents. One morning, at my aunt’s house, my cousin turned on the tv to watch a soccer match. It was Brazil v. Argentina. Diego Maradona was playing and making epic passes to Canillas. Rocio and I both chose to support Argentina while my aunts chose Brazil. And the match was amazing! I had never seen anything that epic, and when Argentina won, I was hooked.
After that epic match, I decided I would love futbol. I have seen all the World Cup matches since, and tomorrow will be no exception.
This scene was amazing. Finally watched it yesterday, and while I knew what was going to happen, I was still entertained. I can't believe it will be over by next week!
The masterful 360-degree long shot in yesterday’s Game of Thrones
Yesterday’s Game of Thrones episode was truly epic. It contained one really spectacular long shot in which the camera—placed in the center of Castle Black’s inner ward—rotates, filming the battle carnage around it in one non-stop 360-degree shot. Director Neil Marshall thinks it is his “favorite shot ever.”
The rape of men: the darkest secret of war
Sexual violence is one of the most horrific weapons of war, an instrument of terror used against women. Yet huge numbers of men are also victims. In this harrowing report, Will Storr travels to Uganda to meet traumatised survivors, and reveals how male rape is endemic in many of the world’s conflicts
I was recently told by a Muslim that little girls "mature" faster in warmer weather. This person was using this argument to enable old men to fuck little girls. Clearly following the example of Muhammad is not only child abuse, pedophilia, and just plain wrong, it also makes those who support Islam truly bad people, no matter how moderate.
