Lifestyle photographer Grace Chon recently turned the camera on her 10-month-old baby Jasper and their 7-year-old rescue dog Zoey, putting them side-by-side in the some of the most adorable portraits ever.
I want a motorcycle and a baby.
These are conflicting thoughts.

Please. Someone make this happen. Please. http://ift.tt/1pE5oFL
can we also do this for pro-lifers?
no, seriously. this would be awesome. like, if the contestants are able go two months living under 100% biblical laws, then the producers will give them $30,000 each.
but if the contestants break the rules, or back out of the show, then THEY have to donate 10,000 to a marriage equality organization.
at some point somebody is going to break a rule that, by biblical law, is punishable by stoning. so the rest of the contestants have to make the choice of forfeiting the contest, or stoning the person to death. if they stay, the producers have them arrested for attempted murder.
Can we not?
Seriously, can we just not?
There is a whiff of antisemitism to these sorts of things — that “Biblical law” is so impossible that no-one could possibly live with it. Nevermind that Orthodox Jews have, can, and do, on a daily basis, live within Biblical law as defined in the Hebrew Bible and refined through centuries of lived experience and rabbinical commentary. But Christian thinkers and theologians decided in the early days of the Church that Jewish Law was impossible to keep, that it was slavery and death, and that dismissal of the Jewish tradition has sustained so much of Christian debate and Christian attitudes towards the Hebrew Bible. It has spread into ostensibly secular culture — secular, but clearly Gentile — with assertions like these. Because the “Old Testament” is just impossible, amirite? I mean, who doesn’t mix their fibers?!
Just stop it. I know it’s tempting. I know you want those scummy homophobes who wrap themselves in their translation of the Bible and images of white Jesus to justify their sanctimonious bulllshit to realise just how much of Biblical law they’re ignoring, how hypocritical they are. But by whipping out the old chestnut of “Biblical law is impossible, no-one can do it, it’s just too hard and too demanding,” you ignore the whole history of Jewish practice and Jewish thought on the matter, trumpeting the supersessionist ideals about Christianity even as you’re trying to show how much bullshit Christians say.
So no. This would not be awesome. It would be another way to show what Christians think about the Jewish traditions they’ve taken, claimed, warped, and treated as lesser, ridiculous, and impossible. And nobody needs that. Not the lgbtq community. Not the Christian community. And certainly not the Jewish community — many of whom already grapple with Biblical law and the realities of being queer. So no. Just stop it.
I just wanna go to a wedding or two
For example today I was wearing a black corset with matching lace around it and a black leather miniskirt, pink fishnets and black combat boots. I was wearing black lipstick, white foundation, black eyeliner and red eye shadow. I was walking outside Hogwarts. It was snowing and raining so there was no sun, which I was very happy about. A lot of preps stared at me. I put up my middle finger at them.
I might be staying in Kiryat Shalom again for July!

How often have you been shopping and you come across something that is just PERFECT, but does not go up to your size? Over 60% of American women wear a size 14 or above, but only 17% of clothing sold is 14 & up. That is a ridiculous disparity.
Moreover, when some brands move into plus (ahem H&M), they throw their signature trendy looks by the wayside in favor of flowy dark fabrics that they think “work” for plus sizes. That is crap. Plus size women want color, print, and structure. Moreover, we want variety. A group this numerous cannot be a monolith, and since style is such a personal thing, we all have different tastes. I want #plussizeplease to be a way to showcase the demand for styles we’d buy and rock, and all the money brands are forfeiting by refusing to expand their sizes.
So here’s how to use it:
1) Snap a picture of a garment you love but does not come in your size. Include the brand and price, tagging the company if possible. For example, I am in love with this Zara marble print dress. I would have purchased it yesterday if it went above a size L. My tweet would be:
“.@Zara marble print sheath, $59. I’d buy it right now if it came in my size. #plussizeplease”
2) Use it on any social media – Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest… even Facebook supports hashtags now.
3) Tag anything you’d purchase, whether in store or online.
4) Feel free to include the size range it comes in and/or the size you think you’d need. Sizing can be tricky, so this is definitely not required.
5) Tell your friends! I don’t just want this to be a blogger thing – I want all women who wear size 14 and up to show their purchasing power and share styles they love. Let’s be unignorable!
Ooh, I really like this idea.
