This little mister was found hiding under my car on the 8th of October. It took a bit of doing, but we got him inside, eating, and out of the cold, but I unfortunately cannot keep him. He had fleas when we found him, but is currently being medicated for it, and may have round worm which he will be medicated for in the next few days.
I don’t want to turn him over to animal control, and our city’s only no-kill shelter is at full capacity. So I’m turning to you tumblr-verse. If anyone from Nashville, TN to Madisonville, KY is looking for a puppy, here is your chance.
From what we’ve managed to figure out he appears to be a pitbull mix of a some form, around seven to eight weeks, and is fully weened. He is not housebroken, but seems to be easy to train ( unfortunately I have animals of my own so he is stuck in quarantine or I’d be training him myself).
He is shy when he firsts meets new people and sort of quiet, loves to cuddle, and sleeps through the night on his own without crying. He responds well to commands, though he hasn’t gotten any tricks down yet, and has a very gentle temperament.
If anyone has room for him in their home please let me know, he’s had a rough start in life and deserves a great home. I’m willing to drive within an hour of the above listed locations, but you are more than welcome to drive out here to meet him and take him home yourself if you are so inclined. Let’s try and find this little gentleman a great forever home!

MCALC the first Gender Neutral Menstruation Calculator.
Mcalc started off as an idea to create a menstruation calculator app that could be used by anyone regardless of their gender, this way our app keeps the trans* and genderqueer community in mind so they can enjoy the features without being constantly misgendered (as with other apps).
Our new app is still in BETA so we appreciate any feedback you can give us at email@example.com, we try to solve as many bugs as possible in as little time as we can so please, let us know if anything is not working properly.
What is Mcalc?
Mcalc is a new menstruation calculator app, it tracks your period and keeps you updated on your current status and any upcoming important events of your menstrual cycle
How does it work?
Simple! just provide the app with some basic information about you and your cycle, Mcalc will calculate the rest, taking your personal context into consideration. Afterwards you can set alarms and even log relevant events.
What features does it have?
-Neutrality Guaranteed: We understand that sex and gender identity are not the same, because of this, we designed our app so it can be used by almost everyone. Mcalc is 100% gender neutral and it won’t assume anything from you while using it.
-Notifications: Mcalc will keep you updated on the important dates of your menstrual cycle, it’s built in alarm system will allow you to set notifications you care about.
-Adaptation: We all have different needs, and Mcalc can suit them accordingly, it will only display the information relevant to your purposes and won’t nag you with irrelevant data. Using Mcalc on “sex mode” will help you reduce your risks of getting pregnant when having sex for fun, while setting it on “baby mode” will help you increase your chances of getting pregnant when planning one.
-Tracking: Mcalc lets you keep a log of your activity for later reference, it’s as simple as tapping a date in our calendar and tick the events that happened that day to save them for further reference.
-Information: Discover new things about menstrual cycles by using Mcalc’s informative pages.

Guys we worked like hell to get this to be a thing, we are just a bunch of 20 something year old nerdy gay guys who want to do something cool for the LGBT community tech-wise, so please even if you are not gonna download it at least reblog it, we don’t have any investors on this so we rely on mere tumblr and social media support.
Please share! all the earnings will go to fund new sexpedia articles and pay our collaborators in this project.
THIS IS THE COOLEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN.
fuck /r/tumblrinaction for making fun of this, I LOVE IT, ITS AMAZING AND WE NEEDED IT
Even as a cis woman, I have been INCREDIBLY annoyed by every period tracking app and their inability to track the things I actually care about in regards to menstruation (and the creepy feeling focus on conception).
Definitely going to give this a spin and yay for gender-neutral apps in this arena.
From The Mouths of Rapists: The Lyrics of Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines [TW: Rape, Sexual Assault, Rape Enablism, Rape Apologism, Victim Blaming, Victim Shaming, Graphic Descriptions of Rape and Sexual Assault, Misogyny, Sexism]
Trigger warning: Graphic descriptions of sexual assault.
Robin Thicke’s summer hit Blurred Lines addresses what he considers to be sounds like a grey area between consensual sex and assault. The images in this post place the song into a real-life context. They are from Project Unbreakable, an online photo essay exhibit, and feature images of women and men holding signs with sentences that their rapist said before, during, or after their assault. Let’s begin.
I know you want it.
Thicke sings “I know you want it,” a phrase that many sexual assault survivors report their rapists saying to justify their actions, as demonstrated over and over in the Project Unbreakable testimonials.
You’re a good girl.
Thicke further sings “You’re a good girl,” suggesting that a good girl won’t show her reciprocal desire (if it exists). This becomes further proof in his mind that she wants sex: for good girls, silence is consent and “no” really means “yes.”
Calling an adult a “good girl” in this context resonates with the the virgin/whore dichotomy. The implication in Blurred Lines is that because the woman is not responding to a man’s sexual advances, which of course are irresistible, she’s hiding her true sexual desire under a facade of disinterest. Thicke is singing about forcing a woman to perform both the good girl and bad girl roles in order to satisfy the man’s desires.
Thicke and company, as all-knowing patriarchs, will give her what he knows she wants (sex), even though she’s not actively consenting, and she may well be rejecting the man outright.
Do it like it hurt, do it like it hurt, what you don’t like work?
This lyric suggests that women are supposed to enjoy pain during sex or that pain is part of sex:
The woman’s desires play no part in this scenario – except insofar as he projects whatever he pleases onto her — another parallel to the act of rape: sexual assault is generally not about sex, but rather about a physical and emotional demonstration of power.
The way you grab me.
Must wanna get nasty.
This is victim-blaming. Everybody knows that if a woman dances with a man it means she wants to sleep with him, right? And if she wears a short skirt or tight dress she’s asking for it, right? And if she even smiles at him it means she wants it, right? Wrong. A dance, an outfit, a smile — sexy or not — does not indicate consent. This idea, though, is pervasive and believed by rapists.
And women, according to Blurred Lines, want to be treated badly.
Nothing like your last guy, he too square for you.
He don’t smack your ass and pull your hair like that.
In this misogynistic fantasy, a woman doesn’t want a “square” who’ll treat her like a human being and with respect. She would rather be degraded and abused for a man’s gratification and amusement, like the women who dance around half naked humping dead animals in the music video.
The pièce de résistance of the non-censored version of Blurred Lines is this lyric:
I’ll give you something to tear your ass in two.
What better way to show a woman who’s in charge than violent, non-consensual sodomy?
Ultimately, Robin Thicke’s rape anthem is about male desire and male dominance over a woman’s personal sexual agency. The rigid definition of masculinity makes the man unable to accept the idea that sometimes his advances are not welcome. Thus, instead of treating a woman like a human being and respecting her subjectivity, she’s relegated to the role of living sex doll whose existence is naught but for the pleasure of a man.
In Melinda Hugh’s Lame Lines parody of Thicke’s song she sings, “You think I want it/ I really don’t want it/ Please get off it.” The Law Revue Girls “Defined Lines” response toBlurred Lines notes, “Yeah we don’t want it/ It’s chauvinistic/ You’re such a bigot.” Rosalind Peters says in her one-woman retort, “Let’s clear up something mate/ I’m here to have fun/ I’m not here to get raped.”
There are no “blurred lines.” There is only one line: consent.
And the absence of consent is a crime.
