  2. "Here are women who sing about sex. Sexuality. Contemporary womanhood. Wholeness. Arrival. […] The record dismantles the idea that marriage, commitment, or monogamy ruins one’s sex life. It challenges the notion that a woman’s life should be lead in complete service to her child. This album is widely successful because it makes women feel good about themselves. I can see how that might be confusing for some […] Detractors decried the album’s explicit content in typical "Won’t someone think of the children?" form, seemingly forgetting that the singer is 32 and under no obligation to parent any child but her own. BEYONCÉ introduces Knowles as a sexual being, not a being sexualized by industry. She communicates her proclivities in her own certain terms. And yes, that may sometimes involve a duration on her knees. No, you may not watch." - From Janet To Beyoncé: Why It Matters When Black Women Sing About Sexuality

    OK SOME REALLY SERIOUS SHIT IS HAPPENING IN NORTH KOREA

    According to South Korean newspapers, last week the North Korean government PUBLICLY EXECUTED 80 people in 7 cities for watching South Korean/Western shows, movies, and videos, “pornography,” or possessing a Bible.

    Apparently people’s attitudes and conformance are changing SO THIS IS HOW THE GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO SUPPRESS DISOBEDIENCE

    They allegedly herded 10,000 innocent civilians into a stadium where they were FORCED TO WATCH THE EXECUTIONS BY MACHINE GUN FIRE

    THIS IS HONESTLY SOME HUNGER GAMES SHIT HAPPENING IN REAL LIFE RIGHT NOW

    some of the more reputable sources: x, x

    Other sources: The Sydney Morning Herald    The Los Angeles Times

    As far as I can tell, there is limited coverage of it. Most papers are referencing this South Korean paper,the Korea JoongAng Daily. The Washington Times has an article on it. A side blog (The Best Defense) of Foreign Policy has a small opinion piece on it. Looks like Al Jazeera America has a piece too.

    I’ve seen nothing on Reuters, NPR, BBC or the Guardian reporting on this. Not surprising, there’s not enough sources to give this enough credit yet.

    These articles were writing around the date of November 11th, 2013. A day or so after I saw more articles from NPR and Reuters.

    If you are looking for something more concrete a simple web search of the terms “North Korea news with the name of a news outlet of your choice” will help you find the most up to date information.

    food should be free. water should be free. housing should be free. power, fuel, electricity should be free. basic necessities should be free.

    the idea of “people should have to work for a living” carries the implication that some people deserve to die

    "my gender identity varies daily. sometimes I like frilly dresses, sometimes I like pants"

    personality. the word you’re looking for is a personality. frilly dresses don’t make you a girl and pants don’t make you a boy. this is a thing we like to call “self expression”.

    “It’s so crazy.It’s really insane.I’ve been working with these girls for about four years now, and I couldn’t ask for a better cast.It’s so cool. We still get along, and we’re really supportive of each other. It’s great.”

                                                                            — Ashley Benson

    “I hate them.No, I’m kidding. They’re all like my little sisters — except for Troian [Bellisario], she’s my older sister. The other two? They’re my little sisters.”

                                                                             — Shay Mitchell

    “We’re very, very lucky to have a cast that respects each other and gets along. I know that a lot of shows aren’t like that, so we feel very lucky to have that strong foundation. It’s good to see them, because I haven’t seen them in a little bit.”

                                                                             — Lucy Hale

    “At this point we are all so comfortable with each other. We are absolutely as close in real life as we are on the show. We all kind of take turns taking care of each other. If one of us was going through something, we’d be there for each other. Even today, they could just tell when I wanted to be alone and they could tell when I wanted someone to talk to. I can’t tell how many times I’ve been there for one of them to call in the middle of the night. I think life would be much cooler if we had woods to meet in, instead of the back of the WB studio where we shoot”

                                                                            — Troian Bellisario
