So whitemanmarchprotestsigns is trending on twitter and I thought I’d share some of my favorites. Part 1 of 2.
public 2000 - 2008: hey why do you guys always have so many republican guests on?
corporate media: because a republican holds the white house and in fairness we want to accurately represent their views
public 2008 - today: hey why do you guys always have so many republican guests on?
corporate media: because a democrat holds the white house and in fairness we want to accurately represent the views of the opposition party
The ‘liberal media’
"I was a trader for most of my life. At one point I was the Vice Chairman of the New York Mercantile Exchange. But instead of retiring, I decided to go back to school and get a degree in social work. Because I figured God wasn’t going to care much about my golf handicap. But being an older student sort of turns your whole world upside down. Last month, I worked on a project with a kid that I used to coach in basketball."
Social work for life!

Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee’s short documentary “Path of Freedom,” above, shows us how inmates at the John J. Moran Prison in Rhode Island have embraced meditation. Producer Dorothée Royal-Hedingerwrote about what she saw while filming behind bars:
The hour-long meditation class was a place many prisoners felt they could be themselves. Their mindfulness practice, they stressed, was not an escape, but rather a tool that helped them come to terms with the reality of their situation.
I absolutely LOVE this interview with Tim Gunn. Sure, you might know him from Project Runway, but he is so much more than that. This interview touches on topics of mental health, suicide, sexual identity, acceptance, love of self, family, and more. Social workers of the world will appreciate this interview.

a pretty rad public health comic series on sexual health stuff:
One of my favorite NSFW comics is OhJoySexToy a mostly sex-toy related review site, that also has comics about all sorts of topics related to sex, from contraception use, to pregnancy, to how to safely have anal sex. It’s a very good read, if you’re into that sort of thing.
I was reading the latest comic, and I love a few things, which I’ve continuously noticed through the comic. Lots of body types, races, genders, and sexualities are represented! The most recent one just says “Vagina-haver” and “Penis-haver” it doesn’t gender folks at all. I like that. And I thought I would pass that along to some of you folks reading because you really ought to check out the comic. It is good reading!
If you just wanna fap to a comic. I recommend Chester 5000
And I apologize in advance to my grandmother who will read this post.
