The bell hooks Hotline: For When You’d Rather Not Give Out Your Number
An anonymous angel from New York delivered a wonderful public service today: “a phone line that automatically reads quotations from bell hooks.” From our savior, via email:
The idea came to me after the NYPost printed bikini photos of the woman who “spurned” Elliot Rodgers. Despite the fact that she was only 10 years old at the time they met, she was portrayed as having romantically rejected Rodgers.
The idea is to pass that off as one’s own number if you’re in a dicey situation, afraid to give out your personal cell phone number or outright reject somebody. The number is 669-221-6251. (We originally wanted 669/UGH-ASIF, but it was taken…)
It will automatically respond to text messages as well as calls! That way, you don’t have to deal with a threatening person, *and* they get some free feminist lessons thrown in.
We are thinking of putting up a gmail account too, which would automatically respond with “Thank you for your note. However, I am away on vacation — from the patriarchy.”
Give it a try, and then promptly memorize the number: 669-221-6251.
Where the World’s Unsold Cars Go to Die
Above are photos of thousands and thousands of brand new, unsold cars in various locations from the U.S., Italy, U.K., Spain, Russia, and elsewhere.
Millions of unsold cars are left to deteriorate in old airports, parking lots, and new tracks of land being bought to store these cars. Auto companies won’t sell them at a cheap price because it wouldn’t be profitable to.
The car industry cannot stop making new cars because they would have to close their factories and lay off tens of thousands of employees. This would further add to the recession. Also the domino effect would be catastrophic as steel manufactures would not sell their steel. All the tens of thousands of places where car components are made would also be affected, indeed the world could come to a grinding halt.
capitalism is cool, correct, and sensible
Says the people blogging on the computers they bought with money, inside their house or apartment that they pay rent or a mortgage on with money. Eat today? That cost money to. Own a Che Guevara t-shirt? Of course you do. Money. Own a car or take any form of transportation other than your own two feet? Money. Electricity? Water? Sewage? Garbage pick up? Internet access? Money. Money. Money. Money. Money.
Got a job? That’s capitalism, just like all of that other stuff. I love people who bitch about that big, bad, evil capitalism, yet have absolutely no problems using the fruits of capitalism. Hate to break it to you Starbucks socialists, but you benefit from capitalism everyday just by being alive.

This dress is EVERYTHING. I sized up as I wanted it to look a bit more baggy and “boho”. A great dress to wear for outside evening events or even to a festival!

See this picture? This comes from a town in Canada where a 24 pack of water bottles is 104 dollars and formula milk for a baby is priced at 55 dollars a pack. What’s more, a pack of diapers is 95 dollars and one head of lettuce is 26 dollars. Inuit people are starving in a country known for it’s generosity.
If you don’t believe this is true, you can find more images like this here. This is the only grocery store these people have in their small towns, and many people are going hungry & elderly are dying faster.
You’ll send aid to foreign children that are starving, so why won’t you pay a little extra to feed the people in your own country who work hard & still can’t afford the prices for healthy food for their families?
Please have a heart and reblog this photo to raise awareness that even in our own countries people are starving, join the movement and show the government that we won’t sit by and watch people starve.
If you think this will make your blog ugly you’re wrong. Children in a first world country are getting sick & starving, and nobody is even aware it’s happening. You can let people know by reblogging and showing you care. People I am close to, my friends and future in-laws are going through this.
Love how little attention this post gets from my beach blog followers.
Ok I didn’t think this could possibly be for real, but I found a news source on the matter. This is insane.
YES, this is real.
the way the Canadian government treats the native people here is actually disgusting. The reserves sometimes have a lower life expectancy and the general living quality of third world countries. This isn’t common knowledge and it needs to be.

If you’re a Transmisogynist who follows my blog don’t reblog this…
There’s enough hate in the world.
I’m just curious about how many of us are actually on this site. It doesn’t matter what you write, if you see yourself as a writer please reblog.
I’m professionally good at getting things done as a means to procrastinate from doing other things of higher importance
