1st salute to our Sister Frida Kahlo.
Types of Dress Shoes
I just had to get some derby shoes and got a pretty sweet pair some time ago… but I like them too much and have maybe only worn them once or twice
The backlog of rape kits has put justice on hold for a lot of people. Back in 2009, more than 11,000 untested kits were found in a Detroit Police Department storage facility. Some were more than 25 years old.
Mariska Hargitay speaks on some of the issues surrounding the rape kit backlog in Detroit, Michigan. #endthebacklog (x)
It costs between $1,000 – $1,500 to test every single rape kit. There are over 10,000 kits left in Detroit’s rape kit backlog. Your donation can go directly to testing them. Donate to the Detroit Crime Commission’s backlog initiative by clicking here.
I am pretty explicitly anti-police in every respect. But I support Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy and her push to catalogue the egregious backlog of unprocessed rape kits in Detroit.
Her work has already identified countless serial rapists in southeast Michigan, and will continue to identify these rapist pieces of shit as she moves forward.
Who cares if this process leads to conviction or not. Just give us the list. We can take care of the rest.
"After Detroit tested the first 10% of its backlogged kits, authorities were able to link cases to 46 serial rapists." (x)
Just think about it: 46 serial rapists. And the evidence against them was out there, all the time, in those backlogged kits. And that’s just 10% of them
So can we talk about the absolutely stunning duplicity going on here?
ok, why the fuck is the graph upside down. that is incredibly misleading
Because its from the Florida Department of Justice, and they have a mandate here.
for those who have trouble inverting it in their head, ftfy:
this is some of the most blatant twisting of info i have ever seen holy shit
This made my stomach hurt
this is why she was the best companion
Note: Donna doesn’t say “what sort of girls,” she doesn’t pull the “I’m not like other girls” crap. She points out the Doctor’s patronizing behavior for what it is and leaves it at that and I love her for it.
Hilda, the plump pin-up of Duane Bryers
Hilda the plus-sized sexy pin-up!
A little about Hilda from Les Toil:
Hilda is the only known ample sized icon in pin-up history that I have come upon. And yes, she very well does qualify as an icon. After some research I discovered that she must have achieved some level of celebrity back in the 60’s, as attested by the photos I’ve provided of drinking glasses, playing cards and fancy prints emblazoned with her image. I found out that the Hilda’s publishers Brown & Bigelow have never stopped releasing calendars featuring Duane Bryers’ reprinted art. If you own a hot property, might as well recycle and exploit it for all it’s worth.
I can’t think of too many other fictitious calendar/pin-up queens of ANY size with a forty-seven year legacy.
A little info on this amazing artist :
Duane Bryers is one of America’s most gifted artists and has been for the better part of his ninety-four years on this planet. He earned a living as a commercial illustrator until his early fifties and gradually found himself garnering a nice amount of attention as a fine artists who specialized in western theme paintings.

An epic fuck-ton of heavy-set human references.
Just as a side note, keep in mind that when designing/drawing someone who’s hefty, there are two types of obesity: (A) Where someone’s metabolism is hereditarily weak and they eat loads of food that bloats them, and (B) when someone is aging and the bloating happens without their diet changing much. Both situations produce different kinds of corporeal formations, as the latter tends to have a more muscular/shapely form. This isn’t always true, but it’s worth keeping in mind when you’re searching for more images. There’s a difference between a fat older guy who was army-fit in his youth and a guy who sits on the couch eating cake and Doritos every night while watching Fox News. Chubbiness due to aging and laziness are two very different things, visually.

"Your too fat."
"I didn’t know [insert character] was black!"
"Why don’t you do more black cosplays?"
"Cosplay to your size!"
"I don’t think that looks right on you, why don’t you cosplay [insert character] instead?"
"Why is [insert character] black? They’re not black in the show."
"You shouldn’t cross-play, it looks weird on you."
"Your boobs are too big for [insert character]."
To everyone who as ever posted a comment or question like this, my answer:
I am a black plus size female cosplayer, if you don’t like it… well honestly I don’t care. The more you comment like an idiot, the more it feeds my will power to prove I’m an amazing cosplayer, not matter what you say. I may have days, or even weeks when I feel down about myself, but that will never stop me from doing what I love. I may have large boobs, chubby stomach, double chin, hair on my face, dark spots around my face and body, and a flat butt, but I rock any cosplay I put on. So grow up, and get out of my face. <3
Just two grandpas, talking about ~sexytimes.~
