Dolly Parton’s self-satisfied, head-thrown-back guffaw at her own jokes is one of my very favorite things ever about someone I don’t actually know.

Designer Gigi Barker made furniture that approximates human skin by moulding leather around pheromone-injected silicone and treating it with aftershave and I am extremely uncomfortable with it.

SHE’S MAKING MEATBAGS FOR PEOPLE TO SIT ON

MEATBAGS

SOMEWHERE A KOTOR SUPERFAN IS LOSING THEIR SHIT WHILE I’M JUST GROSSED OUT

I strongly advise clicking through to the mildly NSFW design process.

"I do talk about money a lot. The guys, though they do the same thing: “money over bitches,” “money over hoes.” In my eyes, it’s the same way. If they’re gonna feel that way about us, well, I’m gonna feel the same way about them. I’m gonna make money my priority as well."

I really want to hear that track with her and Sleigh Bells.

A soldier motions that he does not want his photo taken while on an operation near the Israeli-Gaza border on July 19, 2014 near Sderot, Israel. Photo by Andrew Burton for Getty Images.

I thought a lot about why this photo struck me after reading signedlaura's response [and talking about it with her]. She's right - it's not really news. This could be any cop, any guard, any authority with a gun. Authorities with guns don't like having their photo taken. Photos like this are taken every day in my home country. You could argue it’s the least newsworthy photo of the 42 the Atlantic published.

What struck me was that it evokes the two scenarios where we commonly see people shunning the camera:

the paparazzo harassing someone just going about their business who happens to have the spotlight on them

-or-

the entrance or exit from a courtroom [admittedly, this is usually people covering their own faces, not waving off a camera]

I think this photo is another Empathy Test. Does this soldier not want you to see what he’s doing? Or does he not want you to see how he’s doing?

Hey, little sister or brother. If something has happened to you. If someone has hurt you, or is hurting you. If someone is making you uncomfortable every day, if someone is doing something to your body—I hope you have someone to talk to. Somebody you trust. Maybe somebody who…

Follow ibelieveyouitsnotyourfault if you can handle it. That is going to be life-changing.
