So, to all of you who follow me and who are not from Brazil, you should read this, and please reblog, if you can.
These are some photos of what is happening to our country today. São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro are facing protest all over the cities. To fight for their rights. Our country is living a hidden dictatorship. The protests started because the bus fee raised 20 brazilian cents. Which doesn’t seem that much, but you all should know that millions of brazilians live with a monthly income of no more than 700 brazilian reais (something like 350 american dollars). Some people live and raise families with that money. Monthly. To these people, $0,20 for each bus means a lot.
But the thing is: what initially was intended to be a protest against the bus fee turned into a protest against the dictatorial government. A government that every year, steals millions of dollars of their people, in their own benefit. A government so corrupt, the population got used to it, and make jokes about it. In this country, a school teacher has a yearly income of $8400. The governors, on the other side, earn, for the same time, about $300.000. To work less. And they don’t even show up to work. And besides that salary, they steal.
And now, people are going to the streets. And the response is photographed. The government is brutally attacking everyone. I mean everyone. Protesters, pedestrians, reporters, photographers. Everyone. For no reason. They just attack. And bomb. And hurt.
The media is absolutely corrupted. The brazilian media makes it look like a violent act, that has to be fought with equal violence. That is a lie. 15 thousand people are going to the streets of Sao Paulo with no guns, no fire, no weapons. And they are being hurt, persecuted, and arrested. Some of them have to pay bail fees up to $20.000.
If you came all the way down here, please, reblog this. Help making the world know what is really going on here. This country, this beautiful country, with beautiful beaches, and women, and music, is now screaming in protest. This is the country in which the World Cup will be in 2013. A country that worries about the World Cup much more than it worries about the welfare of its citizens.
It’s sad being here. But we’re fighting.
a male celebrity can literally beat his girlfriend half to death and still enjoy a successful career with millions of adoring fans
a female celebrity can gain a few pounds and she’s shunned, mocked, and ridiculed by thousands of people over many different mediums
do you see the problem with this

[TW: SEXUAL ASSAULT]
Cop Sexually Assaults Woman Then Arresting Her For Protesting
As if that wasn’t enough for them, they sent her child to protective services and put the mother in jail for “making false allegations against a police officer”, which is actually not a crime. Now that it’s been revealed she was telling the truth, not only is the cop fired, but even the judge who sat there and let it happen is under investigation.
never forget, acab.
physically painful to watch.
this news station actually just used a trigger warning though!
I can’t believe the judge just fucking sat there and played with the woman’s child. She should be fucking fired too.
I was kind of iffy on reblogging this because it’s very disturbing, but I think it’s important. Notice how she was bullied to the point of recanting her story, because she knew if she was arrested her daughter would be taken from her. That’s important. This kind of thing happens to women a lot, where a lot of women stay silent because they know if they speak up about the harassment they’ve faced their life will be made difficult or their safety (by extension, their family or children’s safety) will be threatened by those who would prefer they stay silent.
This is disgusting. Way to go, justice system.
how to give a good handjob
- bop it
- pull it
- twist it
You pull your left hand in
You pull your left hand out
You pull your left hand in
And you shake it all about!
Cha cha real smooth
none of you ever touch a penis
You get home from a long day at work and turn on the TV. It’s been a long week, so you think to yourself- maybe i’ll take the family to a movie on Saturday. Maybe we’ll even go on a vacation soon! We could visit museums and go to plays and see all sorts of fun attractions.
When you turned the TV on, nothing happened. There are no actors to entertain you.
When you went to the movie theater, nothing was showing. There were no advertisements to tell you that anything was showing, so you went to the theater to find out. Nothing playing. There is no one to film and create movies for you. Well at least your vacation will be fun, right? Not like there will be any plays to see and there won’t be anything in the art museums.
Well at least you have the shack you are living in that you made out of cardboard and sheets.
Not like you could find an architect to build you a house with all the money you’re making as an engineer.
THE FUCK DID YOU JUST SAY TO ME
THERE WOULD BE NO ROAD SIGNS OR INFORMATIONAL BROCHURES
THERE WOULD BE NO GODDAMN KEYS ON YOUR FUCKING LAPTOP
I WOULD PUNCH YOU IN THE FUCKING FACE BUT WITHOUT GRAPHIC DESIGN HOW WOULD I LEARN TO DO THAT
lol I guess that community college that was completed fairly recently by my dad a county down built itself
I just sent this tweet to NBC.
If these majors are so useless, then who designed the graphic used to announce this on your show?
Bless you all
I’m sorry but Architecture. Are you fucking kidding me
