this is the real first page of a real book by a real Fox News host
I read the entirety of this in a southern accent and now I feel the intense desire to wash myself
If there’s an Einstein-Rosen bridge, then there’s something on the other side. And advanced beings could have crossed it!

MTV and Logo will premiere Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word, a documentary following seven transgender youths and the issues they face.
On October 17, MTV and Logo will simultaneously premiere “Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word,” a documentary produced by “Orange Is the New Black” cast member Laverne Cox. The hour-long documentary follows the lives of seven transgender youths. They hail from New York, New Orleans and Baltimore and range in age from 12 to 24 years old, but they share common obstacles and joys.
Cox, an activist for transgender issues as well as an actress, also acts as host for the documentary, walking viewers through the difficulties of coming out, how race plays into the equation, bullying, violence and familial and social support.
Viewers will meet Kye, a Brooklyn man who was the first transgender Division I basketball player ever, as well as college freshman Ari, an 18-year-old man taking his first steps into campus life. Zoey, a 12-year-old navigating life at her new school in California after school administrators refused to acknowledge her as a girl, is also featured, among other true life stories.
After the documentary’s premiere, Logo and MTV.com will host an hour-long “Trans Forum,” hosted by Cox and SuChin Pak. Alongside the subjects of the documentary, Cox will field questions from audience members and those tuning in via social media.
The documentary was produced as part of MTV’s Look Different campaign, a multi-year initiative to identify and fight biases, whether they be based in gender, sexual orientation or race.
“Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word” will air on October 17 and 7 p.m. ET.
Guenevere (Interactive Romance Fiction)
Part 1 of a planned 7-part series by newarcana, Long Live the Queen is a great introduction to an ambitious and rich interactive novel series based on the Arthurian legend.
As far as love interests go, Guenevere can feel the pull of Arthur, Lancelot, or Morgana, and there is a lot of room for you to roleplay any kind of love story — from purehearted loyalty, to anguished temptation, to calculated manipulation.
Aside from the romance, the depth of choice is just perfect. Not so deep that you get lost in the stats, but complex and meaningful enough that you really feel connected to your Guenevere.
Book I still has “draft” status, but is certainly polished enough to stand on its own merits. And if, like me, you are wary of playing demos because nothing is worse than getting a small taste of something and then being denied any more, let me just tell you that this is an incredibly in-depth “demo” — it really is the entire first book, and feels satisfying enough to be a standalone experience. …Though, of course, I am now incredibly excited for Book II!
I wholeheartedly recommend trying this interactive story, and giving the author your feedback and encouragement.

I’m tired of explaining to men that the feminist movement will, in fact, benefit them as well as women. I’m tired of trying to hawk gender equality like I’m some kind of car salesman showing off a shiny new sedan, explaining all of its bells and whistles. I’m tired of smiling through a thousand thoughtless microaggressions, tired of providing countless pieces of evidence, tired of being questioned on every. Single. Damn. Thing.I’m tired of proving that microaggressions exist, tired of proving that I’m unfairly questioned and asked for proof. For a movement that’s centered around the advancement and empowerment of women, why do I feel like I’m supposed to spend so damn much of my time carefully considering how what I say and do will be taken by men?
I’m tired of men who insert themselves into feminist spaces with claims of hurt feelings. I’m tired of men who somehow manage to make every issue about them. I’m tired of men like the one who recently stopped by a friend’s Facebook thread in order to call feminism “c*nty”, then lecture the women involved for being too “hostile” in their responses to him. I’m tired of men telling me that my understanding of feminism and rape culture are wrong, as if these aren’t things that I have studied intensely. I’m tired of men who claim to be feminist allies, then abuse that position to their own advantage. I’m so fucking exhausted by the fact that I know that I will have to, at some point in this piece, mention that I understand that not all men are like that. I will have to note that some men are good allies. And all of those things are true! And all of you good allies get cookies! But honestly,I’m tired of handing out cookies to people just because they’re decent fucking human beings.
how are you getting that much momentum on the third kick

It’s because that third kick is when he begins his descent. On the first and second he is still moving up, but on the last gravity is doing a lot of the work. His entire body weight is slamming into that last board.
