My response to feminists is that if they want equal rights, go become a Muslim.
I don’t need an entire book with evidence declaring how men and society oppress women. I was raised by an Iraqi mother with a PhD who at one point of her life was making more money than my father and upheld the family house on her own. Yet she still supported my father when he was in need and did it because it was her duty as the other half of the coin.
The fact is that one person cannot uphold an entire structure alone. It takes more than one person to do it all. Islam teaches us that the woman must be properly educated and brought up in the case one pillar is dropped. She must rise to the throne and lead the way to keep things in order.
I’m just ranting. Sick of seeing some women and men radically twist what it means to have equality.

By the end of this semester, I will read 21 books, write 80 pages, put in 128 hours of Jiu Jitsu practice in, have worked 384 hours as a bouncer, and will make about $6,000 in taxable income.
I’m one week in and I’m already about to explode

One year ago today, the world lost a truly exceptional human being. People like Sterling only come once in a blue moon. The type of people that will expose someone to a new side of human nature and learn more from the world. For me, he was Channing Tatum and I was Jonah Hill, just without the cop shit, cause Sterling would be like “fuck that.” Anyways, Sterling, brother, you’re missed every day, and I hope you are keeping some warm room for all of us in Heaven when we come see you. Miss you brother. #RIPSterlingNiitsuma

The Buddha goes on to talk about the three poisons: greed, and anger, and ignorance, and how the three poisons are what is making the fire, and the way out of doing this is not to deny the three poisons, but to recognize that if you turn them around, you come to their opposites.
Instead of greed, you have generosity; instead of anger, you have compassion; and instead of ignorance, you have wisdom.

so many movies would be improved by having more swearing in them.
Christy Mack released the statement above on her Twitter today about the abuse she endured Friday by the hands of her boyfriend, MMA fighter, Jon Koppenhaver. She said this isn’t the first time it’s happened but it’s the never been this bad. He spent 1 year in jail in 2012 for assault at a night club. My heart and well wishes go out to Christy Mack. I wish her a quick recovery and I hope they find this asshole and serve him the justice he deserves. If a loved one abuses you mentally or physically, they most likely will not stop. Get out while you can. 1-800-799-SAFE or click Chat on the upper right hand side.
Cops are looking for him and Christy is in the hospital but he has the audacity to tweet 18 hrs ago:
and also directly to her:
And there are still people who are blaming Christy and believing this dirt ball:He’s trying to make himself look like the victim. “Oh I had an engagement ring” “I love you and hope you’re okay.”
He’s absolute garbage.
Fucking scum of the earth
Yes he’s scum but there’s a lot more to this story. They’re both scum. I don’t want to support the actions of someone who’s a piece of shit but she’s done things to him that’s been under wraps. There’s been stories that she’s pulled knives on him and mentally abuses him on her own method. Yes, he’s a piece of shit, but they are both known for the last two or three years for living a fucked up life together. Neither one of them were helping each other improve, they just kept abusing one another constantly. They loved one another because they enjoyed feeling pain from each other.
She’s a pornstar for crying out loud, she offered to give a random dude a blowjob for making her a Lego statue. And he’s a bigot that doesn’t know how to behave properly.
Once again I’m not trying to say what Koppenhaver did was okay in any way, but there are two sides to this story, and I feel like the media is only focusing on the sensationalism of the situation versus their fucked up past.

The TechGirls are so great. They came to Tumblr HQ yesterday and our engineers answered their questions about Tumblr, about tech, about being a woman in tech, about the future of tech, oh, all kinds of stuff. “Totally the happiest panel ever,” according to alittlespace.
