Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.

And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.

It’s great that he’s addressed this but are we really supposed to believe that NO ONE during the extremely lengthy processes of writing a song, recording it, mastering it and animating the music video wouldn’t have brought it up?

Excuse me but how the hell is spastic even remotely insulting?

So I just recently learned that in the UK calling someone spastic means the same thing as calling someone retarded, only much worse.
If it makes people in the UK feel any better, people in the US literally do not know this (like literally no one I have ever met and/or know). Here being spastic is usually meant to mean something along the lines of acting like a hyper-active child (like running around in circles yelling just because they feel like it please be quiet for just 2 minutes type of child). NOBODY here uses it as a slur.
Since Weird Al is a US musician and the US music industry is pretty non-international, yeah actually I think its entirely possible that none of the people who worked on this song actually knew that spastic was considered an awful slur in some parts of the world.
And I’m like 99.9999% sure that Weird Al is genuinely very sorry that he was accidentally offensive.

Two more Christian colleges win the right to discriminate against LGBT students 

gaywrites:

The Department of Education has given two more Christian institutions a “religious exemption” to Title IX, allowing them to openly and legally discriminate against transgender students.

Title IX is the federal regulation that outlaws sex discrimination in education, and it was recently clarified to include anti-trans discrimination. When it is ignored, the consequences could range anywhere from denial of housing to expulsion. 

Spring Arbor University in Michigan requested exemption with regards to admission, behavior, housing, athletics, restroom access and more, opening the door to discrimination against any student who is not cis and straight, but especially against trans students. Similarly, Simpson University in California basically expressed outright their need to discriminate against LGBT students for the sake of adhering to Biblical principles. 

Earlier this month, George Fox University also received a Title IX exemption in order to deny a trans student housing. 

Simpson University made a similar case for its exemption to Title IX. Its request — approved by the Education Department — cited its affiliation with the Christian and Missionary Alliance to say that it must discriminate against both gay people and transgender people. “[S]exual practices that are divorced from loving, covenental relationships between men and women pervert God’s intentions and result in sinful behavior that ruptures relationships between men and women, and erodes the relationship between human beings and their creator.” The letter goes on to say that “any individual who violates campus standard for biblical living is subject to discipline, including expulsion.”

Education Department officials have said that they have no choice but to grant exemptions that are based on colleges’ religious beliefs. The colleges’ policies are not new, but the Education Department only recently determined that Title IX protects transgender students. [emphasis added]

This is SO. MESSED. UP. We cannot keep enforcing the idea that religion gets you a free pass to discriminate freely. This system is broken.

what the fuck ass balls

Want Real Information About Psychiatric Drugs? Visit CrazyMeds

Welcome to Crazymeds, where you can learn what’s good, what’s bad, what’s interesting, and what’s plain weird and funny about the medications used to treat depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, epilepsy, migraines, anxiety, neuropathic pain, or whatever psychiatric and/or neurological condition you might have. The information on this site is to help you work with your doctor(s) to find the right treatment options. Too many of us get nothing more than 15-minute appointments with overworked doctors or nurse-practitioners, so we need all the help we can get. We need to talk to our prescribers about the best medication1 to treat our conditions, and not the most profitable ones, or the cheapest ones2.

OK, in reality “best” usually translates to “least bad.” If you know the name of the medication(s) you’re looking for, you’ll probably want our list of drugs by names and class/category. There’s also our much larger list of all the meds we know about to treat various conditions, including all the brand/trade names we can find for every med in every country in which each is available. We also have the drugs sorted into broad categories with lots of overlapping memberships:

Crazymeds is the site for the obsessed and depressed, the manic and the panicked, the schizophrenic and epileptic, the migraineurs and bipolar, those with GAD, SAD, OCD, PTSD, in pain or have an otherwise non-standard brain4. If you have any specific questions about a drug that wasn’t answered on its page, couldn’t find the drug you’re interested in, or want some help in figuring out which medication is the right one for you, then visit Crazy Talk: Our forum for the mentally interesting. We aren’t doctors or anything, and we don’t diagnose, but we have more experience than we ever wanted when it comes to brain cooties and the crazy meds used to treat them. We’re all about helping each other know what the drugs can and cannot do, what they are likely to do for us and to us, and work with our doctors to make the best, or least bad, choice in medication(s) as quickly as possible.

For real, CrazyMeds is one of the most helpful plain-english information sites regarding psychiatric / neurological drugs and what exactly they DO to your brain. If you’ve ever felt like a human lab experiment just being handed one prescription after another, CrazyMeds can help you understand what effects the drugs have and how they work. The site also discusses realistic side-effects such as the ever-present “head zaps” of SSRIs and others that doctors keep saying we make up for attention.

Also it’s fun to read if you’re a writer and just want to learn about drugs with long names and what they do.

Reblogging to promote CrazyMeds. I’ve found it incredibly helpful.

And for anyone who might be inclined to get all OH NOES SELF DIAGNOSIS!!1!1!, my neurologist—who is a bit of a bigwig in the field, straight-up brilliant, and one of the best doctors I could ever hope for—regularly refers patients to CrazyMeds when they’re dealing with new conditions and drugs and side effects and the like.

This is the site I use when I can’t find what I need at drugs.com.
