You teach me how to play your game.
Just think of how many of those people who survived due to having been vaccinated were worthless pieces of shit who should’ve died.
Plus, this graphic is unscientific bullshit. Nowhere on there do I see one source to back up the information stated. Very scientific to not list sources! I’m not going to dispute whether or not it’s factual, I’m simply not going to jump on a fucking bandwagon without proof - which this unsupported graphic is not. If you want to convince people with facts, do it properly, not half assed. Any idiot could’ve made that graphic, and thousands of other idiots would jump out of the woodwork ready to join the cause. It happens everyday on Facebook, and on news media that should know better.
Maybe I missed some accompanying link to more information for further review, that for some reason I’m not seeing due to using an app and not being on the regular site but, if not, that’s a poor post by a page that claims to “fucking love science”.
And, from what I can tell, the “earlier” post referred to was a picture quoting Penn (of Penn & Teller fame) with (if I recall correctly) an accompanying link to the entire episode of the show it was from. As much as I like them, and their show, I’ve often felt it was, at times, unfortunately geared toward their particular bias. Still, my opinions aside, an episode of a tv show is hardly conclusive scientific proof of whether vaccines are or, are not, linked to autism. But, to be fair to Penn & Teller, they, at least, list their sources. Not to say “I fucking love science” never does but, in this case, they did not and, thanks to that fact, this rant was inspired.
Annnnd a quick Google Image Search turns up the sources. Oh my index finger feels like it’s about to fall off from all the hard work I just did.

Born in Denmark in 1886, Nielsen was inspired by Art Nouveau and Eastern influences in his illustrations, and adopted many practices of Japanese woodcuts, such as asymmetrical composition, large vacant areas, sinuous linework, and flattened perspective.

Today I was stopped in the hallway on my way to class by one of the security guards. She wouldn’t let me go to class and forced me to walk across the school to the main office to have my mom, who by the way was on her way to work, bring me “real pants” because the way I dressed was “sexually provocative.” Because of this I was ten minutes late to class, and after five minutes of actually being in class I was taken back out to be talked to again by the security guard and given my “real pants.”
These shorts are mid-thigh, and I am wearing opaque black tights. Other than my hands and my face, I had no skin showing whatsoever. So tell me, how is this being “sexually provocative?” (reminder: this is a typical american public high school, not a private or religious-oriented school)
The security guard ridiculed me, saying that what I was wearing was inappropriate. I told her that everyday, other girls walk around in skin-tight yoga pants, some even with their thongs clearly showing, and shirts that are see-through. “This is not bad clothing.” I had told her. This security guard plays favorites with the girls on who she does call out and doesn’t call out. On game days, the cheerleaders decide to wear their skirts that barely cover their butts and she doesn’t cal them out at all. She also openly said to my mom “I don’t look at what the boys are wearing, only the girls.”
When my mom came in to bring me the pants, she had a long talk with the security guard. She told my mom that I should know that there is a dress code, and that I should follow it. My mom told her “Maybe there shouldn’t be a dress code if it isn’t monitored consistently. This is double-standards.”
My mom also told her “The only distraction from class that is going on is you are pulling my daughter out of class and keeping her from learning.”
I had to walk up to this security guard to get my long pants, since she was talking to my mom, and my mom said to me sarcastically: “It appears that you are being sexually provocative, darling.”
“Oh yes mama, all the boys are just popping boners everywhere!” I pretended to swoon. We both left, my mom calling back to the security guard: “I didn’t need this today, you know. I need to get to work and I haven’t even showered yet. Good Job.”
The whole ordeal was ridiculous. Girls shouldn’t be ridiculed for wearing shorts. Even so, I was wearing thick tights that you couldn’t see through–much better than just wearing yoga pants. There is no way that what I was wearing could even be considered “sexually provocative.” Plus, anything the boys wear is completely fine in the eyes of the security guard, it’s only what the girls are wearing that are “inappropriate.” Even yoga pants where you can see the thong through it don’t “disrupt class” because nobody cares enough about what a student wears and does not wear, only the security guards.
tl;dr, dress codes are counterproductive and the enforcers cause more disruption for a student’s learning than shorts do.

Reminds me of the time this girl in my class who was wearing shorts that went almost to her knees asked to use the restroom, took forever, and came back wearing different pants. She said she got stopped in the hall because her shorts were inappropriate so she changed into her sweatpants for PE. Even our teacher was like “What?” I guess her knees were just really provocative.
Fandom News of the Day: Amazon Unveils a Fanfic Publishing Platform
Beginning in June, fanfiction authors will be able to self-publish their works from selected partner franchises via Kindle Worlds. Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars are already on board with the project and more are expected to be announced the official launch. However, authors aren’t exactly jumping at the chance to turn their works into cash: by using the platform, authors give all rights to the work to Amazon, who can then license your elements to other authors with no compensation to the original poster. The platform also will not publish stories containing pornography, excessive use of brand names or crossovers, so your Superwholock mpreg (male pregnancy) stories will just have to stay on Tumblr.
Desire to write fanfiction for Amazon so they can profit from it at the expense of fandom: nil.
