They warn against the "addictive dangers of pornography"

Use Anthony Weiner's divorce from wife Huma Abedin as an example of the devastating effect porn consumption can have on those "closest to the addict"

Compare porn addiction rates (between 50% and 99% among men) to those of marijuana (9%) and cocaine (15%), mentions data showing that men have reported have "less satisfactory intimate lives with their wives or girlfriends as a result"

Gabrielle Union in Op-Ed: I cannot take Nate Parker rape allegations lightly






for the tl; dr crowd:

  • Doesn't come out and tell people to boycott the film or to go see it

  • Still believes that the movie can educate people about sexual assault and rape

  • Is raising her sons with the concept of affirmative consent



Some quotes:

  • As important and ground-breaking as this film is, I cannot take these allegations lightly. On that night, 17-odd years ago, did Nate have his date’s consent? It’s very possible he thought he did. Yet by his own admission he did not have verbal affirmation; and even if she never said “no,” silence certainly does not equal “yes.” Although it’s often difficult to read and understand body language, the fact that some individuals interpret the absence of a “no” as a “yes” is problematic at least, criminal at worst. That’s why education on this issue is so vital.

Actual monster Jared Fogle tries to sue the parents of one of his victims


Former Subway spokesperson and known pedophile Jared Fogle is trying to make a case against one of his victims. The victim, who was one of the subjects in Fogle's collection of child porn, filed a lawsuit against him earlier in the year. Fogle in turn has decided that its not his fault he had porn of the underage girl it's her parents fault because sometimes they would drink or fight in front of her, because you know that makes sense. He went on to claim that they caused more stress to her than he did and that they're actually liable for all of her claims against him.

The victim had participated in Fogle's anti-obesity charity where he and the head of the charity had secret cameras that were used to record kids changing. She is seeking $300,000 in damages which she will hopefully get and Fogle's filing will be laughed out of court.

WHO: No zika cases reported during Rio Olympics



- The World Heath Organization (WHO) says no zika cases were reported in Brazil during the Olympics, either among athletes or visitors. There are also no cases reported after their return to their home countries.

- “Many people have been tested and there have been no confirmed cases,” said Dr. Peter Salama, the executive director of outbreaks and health emergencies at the agency, adding that Brazil had been on high alert with “enhanced and active surveillance.”

- Brazilian experts had already predicted a severe decline in zika cases for August, when the weather conditions (dry and cold) are not conducive to the procreation of the Aedes Aegypt mosquito.

- Rio mayor Eduardo Paes had this to say: "They made people imagine that as soon as they arrived in Rio they would be carried by zika mosquitoes and everyone would get very sick. I want to point out that, when it comes to not getting zika, it was much safer to stay in Rio than to go to Miami".

Key of Awesome Parodies "All In My Head (Flex)"



-None of the guys have abs as nice as in the actual video.

-It's basically just about how unsubtle the video and song are about wanting sex, how dumb writing around in the sand makes you look, making fun of promoting a dating app, making fun of all the hair flips, and a strange zombie turn.

-In the Making Of after the three-minute mark, they make weird ass puns about Fetty Wap's eye ("he has a bad Waptometerist") among other corny puns. Also, one of the makers doesn't get why the girls are so excited about finding a "lousy earring" that almost got lost beneath the sand while the tide was coming in

-Some little kid didn't give a fuck and ran in the background during filming.Collapse )

Utada Hikaru Interview with Yahoo! Japan on Creating Fantôme + Hanataba wo Kimi ni Short PV

aramajapan_utada-hikaru-fantome-cover.jpg

Gearing up for the release of her comeback album, Utada Hikaru sits down with Yahoo! Japan for her first interview since her hiatus at 2010. She describes the creative process of creating her comeback album both from a general perspective and a track-by-track perspective.

General

- Prior to going on hiatus, she went full-throtle on her musical activities because she knew that her hiatus could last for two to five years.
- Believes that the loss of a mother forces you to grow up, and she wasn't confident in herself since her mother's death until recently.
- Interviewer/writer points out that the album is undoubtedly inspired by her late mother, down to her hairstyle.
- Album covers various events during her hiatus (e.g., mother's death, marriage, becoming a mother)
- Giving Japanese titles to all of her tracks was a very deliberate artistic decision.
- Utada Hikaru also had control over which photographer she worked with for the album cover.

Georgina Campbell Cast As Female Lead In Syfy Superman Prequel "Krypton"

Krypton is set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet. It follows Superman’s grandfather Seg-El — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos.

Campbell’s Lyta Zod is a member of Krypton’s military caste and the daughter of a general, Alura Zod. Lyta Zod serves as a cadet — and has also been having a clandestine, forbidden romance with Seg-El (not cast yet).
