Behold the most disgustingly aggressive display of Americanness

I’m just picturing some dude sitting at the dinner table, his assault rifles propped up in the other chairs
"Can you pass the salad, Mom?" he asks the AK-47, but she doesn’t pass the salad
She never passes the salad

"Hey Mom, can you pass the salad?"




"You always do this to me, Mom."


A masterpiece

Harry Edwards painted Handsome Morning—A Dakota in 1921.
As the Brooklyn Museum describes, Edwards painted Handsome Morning “wearing a fringed shift with painted emblems, a bead-and-quill necklace, beaded moccasins, and a ceremonial blanket of fur-lined buffalo hide painted with abstract motifs (a specialty of Dakota women).”
Edwards picks up the bold colors of her garments in the indistinct strokes of the background, tying the subject and her setting together.
In fact, Edwards seems deliberately to have composed the scene to highlight her garments, her delicate moccasin emerging from behind her carefully arrayed blanket.

Two MSU basketball players raped a woman in the dorms then one admitted to it. Their only consequence was that they had to move out of the dorms. This picture is of me and one other woman holding up this banner during Midnight Madness. Two other brave souls had a banner on the other side for a while before some jerk started playing tug or war with them over it. This was taken before we got booed at by 10,000 people and police escorted from the stadium. 

How screwed up are people to boo at this? 

Let’s keep reposting this. Rapists should be charged.

how is sport more important than the lives of women? like honestly baffling

Mitt Romney spent over 800 Million not to become president. I spent no money for the same result. Who’s the better businessman?
