Il porno non è la verità

Gli uomini sono notoriamente eccellenti consumatori di porno.

Per certi periodi della loro vita il porno che consumano è di gran lunga superiore rispetto alla quantità di sessoreale che praticano e ciò succede fin dalla più tenera età (oddio, magari i preadolescenti di oggi fanno acrobazie che manco i trapezisti del Circo Togni sotto cialis, però insomma, ci siamo capiti).

Ora, se vero è che anche le vagine dovrebbero guardare il porno (e molte lo fanno), non fosse altro che per cultura generale, con un intento come minimo educational, è pur vero che esistono uomini ai quali bisognerebbe inculcare un precetto di fondamentale importanza: il porno non è la verità.

Scopriamo insieme perché:

A Poem for Women’s Equality Day

Equality (film), a short film about gender equality

Did you know that August 26 is Women’s Equality Day in the United States?

It is a day to recognize the work of the people who helped secure women’s right to vote in the U.S. It is a momentous day to mark the full rights of women as American citizens. The title for the day began in 2004, in a proclamation released by George W. Bush, the U.S. President at that time.

While I am Canadian, I still celebrate the importance of the day. I also understand that women in North America and countries around the world still struggle for gender equality. The wage gap in the North American workplace is one example.

Hello and welcome to a place of feeling like a champion because of how you talk to YOURSELF. Welcome to a feeling of wanting to be the best you can be, regardless of whether someone from the past has tried to hold you back from being that. Here’s to doing more, being more and loving oneself, even if you have been cheated on or hurt in another way in the past. Loving myself is the greatest gift of all, and I hope you love yourself too xo

The Capital

He chose her over me,

As though she was first place and
I was a lonely second –

And now it seems you take the
Last space in my life, outside my
Heart’s walls and miles from my reality.

I realized there is a place…

Snapchat Ads Are Probably Cooler Than Facebook’s, But Still Not Cool

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

Prepare for ads on Snapchat, bruh!

The company announced on Friday that users will start receiving ads from brands under the Recent Updates section of the app. This is the same portion of the Snapchat inbox where you find Stories, a product that threads together multiple snaps (both video or photo) into one, long snap.

The ads are opt-in, in that you don’t actually have to watch them if you don’t want to. (Brands will love it!) After viewing, or within 24 hours, they disappear from your inbox. However, users have no control over whether or not they actually receive the ads. They’re coming, whether you like it or not.

Either, it’s a pretty chill way to approach advertising, and it focuses predominantly on the happiness of the user, not the brand. It’s hard to say the same for Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, which all force users to look…

Vandal paints penis on £1.5million Bugatti Veyron

The vandalism may have wipe half a million off the price (Picture: Twitter)

An amateur psychologist seems to have been at work as a vandal on the streets of Seattle, painting a penis on a £1.5million supercar which some might say functioned as a substitute for the real, fleshy thing.

Anyone looking for a metal substitute for their own organ could do worse than the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport: it’s the world’s most expensive production car, and does nought to 60 in 2.6 seconds.

The Veyron boasts 1200hp, more than many dedicated racing cars, but is street legal.

The picture provoked Tony Stark, Iron Man, to claim that the vehicle was his on Twitter.

I cherish my friends, those wonderful people who I let into my section of the world. They are people who I know online and in “real” life. Some friends are younger than me while others are older. Once you become a friend to me, I treasure you so much. Recently I had a bit of a falling out with a friend in “real” life here in Victoria, but we were able to work it out after she apologized to me. I am thankful. I understand that life is not always easy but friendship is something so important and worth fighting for!

Thank you to all of you who support Poetic Parfait and I as I do consider you all friends!

Here is a poem I wrote about friendship and the recent falling out that happened in…
