oh my god I was waiting for a bus and there were these two fedora wearing clones stood nearby and I thought ‘wow they exist in real life’ and then twO MORE GOT OFF A BUS AND JOINED THEM AND THEY ALL LOOK EXACTLY THE SAME AND I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND

It’s like the matrix glitched.

i can’t stop laughing

i’m 98% sure these are young orthodox jews you FUCKING JACKASSES

These aren’t fedoras, they’re hats used by Yeshivish and Hasidic Jews because their faith requires them to keep their heads covered. Also, you can see the Payot (sidelocks) on the older ones growing in. ALSO, two of them have the same pamphlet, they probably just got out of school or a service. A L S O you can even see the Tallit hanging out from under their clothes.
Next time please try rubbing two brain cells together long enough to consider a situation that isn’t “haHA they’re WEArinG HATs that KINDA VAGUELY LOOK like a fedora this is COMEDY GOLD”

and this is why education about other religions is important

Um…. I know I’m probably asking for it, but perhaps when educating someone about your religion or another religion you might want to check the sarcasm and demeaning tone of voice at the door.
The person who took that photo came across something new and had no context for which to describe what they observed so they used language familiar to them to describe the hat. This was innocent shock and awe at a unique experience.
Because of your very demeaning and aggressive correction, the person who posted the photo will now associate shame, rejection, anger, and lack of empathy with exposing a lack of knowledge and quite possibly with people who look like that because of the funny ways our brains make associations. This has the potential to make them less likely to expose ignorance for fear of the reaction, and deprives them of other people’s experience and insight regarding the topic at hand.
This is why eliminating ignorance should always be from a point of respect for the ignorant person with the expectation that the knowledge you choose to share will help them in some way. At least, until the ignorant person decides to remain ignorant after a polite correction. Then it’s probably okay to whip out attitude. Until then, not so much.
See? I just corrected your ignorance and attitude without demeaning you as a person in any way, and offered a well reasoned argument supporting my opinion.
The question is, are you going to take the polite correction or will you remain ignorant in the impact you have?

do you not see a problem with knowing every bullshit anime subgenre and made up rainbow sexuality but not being aware of the existence of orthodox jews?

Of course I do. However, I choose not to hold that against a person whose world view has been so narrowed. Why would I?I simply choose to accept that a person may not be as aware of much in the world beyond their personal interests. At that point, I choose to share what I know if they seem receptive, and sometimes even when they’re not. Just trying my best to build bridges that bring the ignorant to knowledge. Doesn’t mean they’ll educate themselves, but at least I made the effort in a respectful way that’s not propagating a cycle of intolerance and prejudice.

Jews have literally been persecuted for THOUSANDS of years and you’re trying to say this person should be more polite?  
go read this and stop being so goddamn condescending  (also go ahead and unfollow me)

People all over have been persecuted for the most ridiculous reasons. Persecution continues to breed freely when people feel attacked, belittled, misunderstood, diminished, ridiculed, and various other behaviors that people indulge in to create a sense of “other” about another group of people. Instead of indulging in a knee jerk reaction, step back and respond in a way that DOESN’T perpetuate the cycle. If you want to create persecution and intolerance then by all means react in a way that continues to alienate people. If not, rethink the approach or response to the attack. And I don’t think I will follow you, because you don’t run my motherfuckin blog, bitch. You follow me.

I saw this video on youtube and I really wanted to share it. It’s an experiment in which this company invites people specially girls of different ages to do different actions but to them how one would think a girl does them. The video shows how as a girl grows up they are taught that to be a girl is to be weak. I don’t really have anything else to say. Just watch the video.

WATCH THIS VIDEO

best video wow

This is my 65 lbs weight loss transformation.

My “after” photos on my blog were from June 2013, so I thought it was time to update them. Building muscle/decreasing body fat has been a longer, more difficult journey for me physically, whereas losing the first 50 lbs (which I did from Dec ‘11-Dec ‘12) was mentally/emotionally one of the hardest things I’ve ever done in my life.

Over the last nearly 2 years, I’ve lost 6” from my bust, 11” from my waist, and 8” from my hips. Believe me when I say if I can do it, anyone can. I was watching “Extreme Weight Loss” earlier and I heard Chris Powell say something I think is pretty powerful, so I will leave you with that: “Ordinary people don’t do this stuff, extraordinary people do.”
