"The president missed an opportunity to lead the nation toward greater tolerance and social harmony by respecting diverse viewpoints on divisive issues,” Leith Anderson, president of the National Association of Evangelicals, a Christian group, said in a statement. “Religious groups that have longstanding and principled positions should be allowed to compete for federal contracts on an equal basis.”
Actually? No, fuck you.
You already have every right to compete for federal contracts on an equal basis. If you don’t win because you blatantly discriminate against people for religious reasons — which the federal government is legally obligated by the Constitution NOT to do — then that’s your own fucking fault.
I actually thought that the music industry was a better place for women than the games industry, or that which has established itself around free-publishing platforms like YouTube. I thought its longer history, its right now richer culture in the perceptions of a mainstream that sees games as the preserve of the geek, would separate it from newer forms of expression. Totally wrong, of course, as sE and Jake Bugg make wholly evident. And when Mayberry is reading comments about herself like, “I have your address and I will come round to your house and give u anal and you will love it you tw*t lol”, what kind of levelheaded, professional response can anyone have?

[moaning] Oh, pizza. I love you so much! Ti amo cosí tanto. You know why I love you? Because you’re bad for me. So bad… And it’s not the saturated fats, it’s not the calories… You know what is bad? So very, very bad about you? You’re tied to the mafia, but I love you anyway! I love your gang-land ties! You don’t do the killing yourself, your hands are clean. Make me your mob-woman, pizza! [orgasmic moaning] Oh, the remorse. Il rimorso.

Lisa Simone Kelly opens up about her mom’s anger, their troubled relationship and what she thinks of Zoe Saldana playing her mom
he forthcoming biopic of the late singer’s life starring Zoe Saldana has been put on pause due to its own drama. Writer and director Cynthia Mort has been locked out by a legal dispute with the producers. This makes Lisa smile. She said:
"They did not ask me or the Nina Simone estate to participate in the film at all. It is based on a lie because it is based on the life of my mother’s assistant, Clifton Henderson. Clifton was gay so he could not have had an affair with my mother, which is what the film implies. And my mother was raised at a time when she was told her nose was too wide, her skin was too dark…She was rejected by the U.S. She loved classical music and wanted to become the first black classical pianist but her dreams turned to dust because of the colour of her skin. Zoe Saldana portraying her is a bad joke because there are more gifted actresses who are more in keeping with my mother’s appearance.
I know how my mother would feel about Zoe, so they are making a mockery of her experiences to construct their own truth. The goal seems to be to bleed me dry of everything my mother stood for, of everything she sacrificed. She had many experiences in her life that left her feeling sad and angry. They approached the estate for permission to use some of the songs but as administrator I refused. I had the biggest laugh when I heard that Cynthia Mort had been pushed out of the film. You could call it karma. There is most certainly a divine order at work.”
If Nina Simone’s own daughter has objects then you know the film is a piece of trash
This should get more notes
I know ya’ll petty asses didn’t just ignore everything but the bit about Zoe…..
