Over the weekend you may have heard of or seen - nude photos of celebrities were stolen off of their phones and posted online. It’s a terrible invasion of privacy, but probably the most disconcerting part of this for me is that some people are blaming the celebrities for having the nude photos on their phones in the first place.
THIS WAS A CHILDRENS MOVIE
A CHILDRENS BIBLE MOVIE
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Amen
FUN FACT: in hebrew, “feet” is a euphemism for genitals.
so if you ever see “washing feet” in the bible, it, uh. yeah.
(source is my old bible class textbook which i don’t have on me anymore :( )
HOLY SHIT WHAT
I MEAN CORRECT ME IF IM WRONG BUT I SWEAR TO GOD I REMEMBER READING A STORY IN THE BIBLE WHERE JESUS CLEANED THE ‘FEET’ OF A LADY PROSTITUTE INFRONT OF HIS TWELVE DISCIPLES WHO GOT SERIOUSLY GROSSED OUT. THEM GETTING REALLY SUPER GROSSED OUT BY THAT NEVER MADE SENSE TO ME UNTIL NOW.
JESUS CHRIST JESUS.
THAT HASHTAG I”m—-—
Just to note - it’s a euphemism, which means that sometimes it means genitals and sometimes it means just feet.
When Jesus washes the 12 disciples feet in the Upper Room during the last supper there are no textual clues to indicate that the Gospel writers were alluding to Jesus having an orgy with his disciples by “washing their feet.” Rather, the text highlights the servant-like leadership Jesus modeled for his disciples right before he died.
BUT a place where it is a euphemism is in the story of Ruth, who is a Gentile who marries into a Jewish family. Her husband dies and Ruth stays with her mother-in-law rather than abandon her. They travel back to Israel together, live in caves, and glean the fields of a rich man named Boaz. Ruth functionally was a homeless woman working her butt off to provide for her and her mother-in-law. She catches Boaz’s eye and it became clear they were smitten with each other, but he declare his intentions. So Ruth decides (with prompting from her mother-in-law) to go sleep at Boaz’s feet in the barn one night. There feet are clearly a euphemism for sex. Ruth takes some agency and forces the dudes around her (Boaz and the male members of her family that didn’t want to give permission for her to marry Boaz) to agree to it. It’s an awesome story about two women who have no power in a society standing by one another and being bold and taking risks to achieve happiness. And it’s made more awesome when you recognize the euphemism of feet and sex because it heightens the stakes. It helps us see Ruth more clearly.
But it’s not always about sex, as fun as that would be.

this is on a whole new level of patience
This is natural art.
Witnesses say they asked Britney why she shaved her head and her response was, “I’m tired of plugging things into it. I’m tired of people touching me.”
i can never not reblog this
T-Pain: “That was the most beautiful thing in the world. Do you know why she was shaving her head? Because it was so important to other people. She is like, “Listen. Don’t touch my hair anymore. Stop touching my hair.” People were like, “We’ve got to make your hair before you go outside. You can’t leave.” She went … “Now I don’t have hair. What you going to do?”
The older I get the more her breakdown seems less ‘unbalanced’ and more ‘completely understandable’
Makeup styling at the @happyashleyland #LFW #SS15 is anything but subtle.
It gets better—the guy is deaf, and he taught his cat the sign for “food.” So the cat’s not just saying “put that in my mouth,” it’s actually signing
Not only that, but if you notice at the beginning, the cat *gets the man’s attention* as any person who wanted to talk to a deaf/hoh individual would (well, and vice versa IME). I’ve done sign since I was 5, and generally, w/o eye contact initially, you wave a hand or lightly touch the arm (if that’s ok with the person you’re trying to converse with, of course).
Generally, adult cats meow mostly to humans, but this cat has figured out that’s not going to work and has adapted. Animal companions! They are INCREDIBLE.
EVERYONE STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND LOOK AT THIS CAT.
this is pretty remarkable
