I took this picture of Oli and myself today at the pool. After we got done swimming, we were walking home and had to pass by a group of cheerleaders that were practicing on my uni’s campus. One of the cheerleaders looked at Oliver and said, “She’s so cute!” With a smile on my face, I ruffled Oli’s hair and said, “HE.” as we continued walking past her. Immediately the girl winced, turned to her friend, and said, “Oh my god, she’s turning him gay..”
I am not turning my son gay by allowing him to express himself by wearing a floral dress. I’m so sick of people making comments that I’m altering my son’s sexual orientation or his gender identity because he’s wearing a dress. IT’S A DRESS. IT IS LITERALLY CLOTHING. If he is gay, that’s cool, I’ll accept him no matter what, and if he decides at any point he’s anything but a boy, I’ll still accept him (er, them/her). But allowing him to pick out his own clothes and taking him clothes shopping with me so he can pick out what he likes is not going to have ANY affect on his orientation/identity. The only concern I have about him wearing a dress is when he pulls it up to show me how big his tummy is in public, because I don’t want him showing a bunch of strangers his underwear.
If he was a little girl wearing a pair of shorts or a t-shirt with a dump truck on it, no one would say anything, because dressing as a boy is different. People see wearing a dress as a negative thing when you’re a boy, they say he’ll turn gay and that I’m a bad mom and I’m trying to turn him into a girl. But the bottom line is that him wearing a dress has nothing to do with being a boy or his orientation. If he’s gay, he’s gay. He’s too young to slap a sexuality on him at 3 and a half, and that’s not something I’m particularly worried about, because at this age he treats everybody the same and doesn’t have comprehension of what sexual/romantic attraction is. Wearing a dress has nothing to do with that.
He is a boy. He plays with dump trucks, rolls around in dirt, growls at everyone, and pretends to fart for fun. He also paints his nails, is obsessed with Sailor Moon, refers to himself as Princess Oliver, and yes, wears dresses. He is a boy.
You lady are an excellent mother, and an example. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. You’re doing a beautiful job beinf his mother to that boy, and he’s lucky to have you.
parenting goals this is absolutely perfect.
The Best Birth Control In The World Is For Men by Jon Clinkenbeard
If I were going to describe the perfect contraceptive, it would go something like this: no babies, no latex, no daily pill to remember, no hormones to interfere with mood or sex drive, no negative health effects whatsoever, and 100 percent effectiveness. The funny thing is, something like that currently exists.
The procedure called RISUG in India (reversible inhibition of sperm under guidance) takes about 15 minutes with a doctor, is effective after about three days, and lasts for 10 or more years…
Oh, and when you do decide you want those babies, it only takes one other injection of water and baking soda to flush out the gel, and within two to three months, you’ve got all your healthy sperm again.
The trouble is, most people don’t even know this exists. And if men only need one super-cheap shot every 10 years or more, that’s not something that gets big pharmaceutical companies all fired up, because they’ll make zero money on it (even if it might have the side benefit of, you know, destroying HIV).
can this replace the normal contraception methods we have pls
I’m just going to keep reblogging this until people start paying attention, because people aren’t.
I’ve actually donated to this cause, the recent studies on apes have run into some troubles after the sperm extraction from the apes using electro stimulation was found to dislodge the contraceptive. They are reevaluating the sperm collection method and conituing with the study soon, but it takes allot to get this kind of medicine licensed in America, so don’t expect it for at least a year or two.
If this is something your interested in making reality go to their site and donate.

So I tried to recreate this, because I knew the responses would be different, and consequently realized that it’s either extremely old or faked, as Cleverbot auto-capitalizes and auto-punctuates your sentences for you if you do not. Oh well.
In light of that fact, here’s my go at cybersexing Cleverbot.
So I decided to try it
alrighty, let’s go one more step

More than 600 people have died in a recent outbreak of the Ebola virus raging through Africa— that even includes doctors caring for patients with the disease.
Still, there is no known cure for Ebola, and no preventative vaccine that can protect people from contracting the virus. So what will it take to get rid of this devastating disease?
Three renowned doctors joined HuffPost Live on Monday to weigh in on all the facts about the Ebola outbreak, from how the disease spreads to how it might be stopped.
"We do have several vaccines that have been extremely successful in protecting laboratory animals, including non-human primates, against the Ebola virus," Dr. Thomas W. Geisbert, professor of microbiology and immunology at the University of Texas, told host Josh Zepps. But what about developing a vaccine for humans? "It’s a very long regulatory process. From the time to develop a vaccine for animals in a lab to protecting humans… it’s really just a lot of regulatory hurdles and red tape."
That’s not all. Dr. Stephen Morse, an epidemiologist at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, opened up about how economic factors come into play too.
"The vaccine companies of course have to be driven by the economic considerations," he said. "It’s a terrible thing to say, but they have to be convinced that it’s economically… worthwhile to provide the vaccine."
It’s not about saving lives, it’s about making money.
