Powerful portraits of the Liberians who beat Ebola

To help humanize the overwhelming statistics, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and senior staff photographer at Getty Images, John Moore, visited an Ebola treatment center of the organization, Doctors Without Borders in Paynesville, Liberia. At the treatment center, survivors spoke about the brothers, sisters, husbands and wives they lost due to the disease. They also spoke of recovery, stigmas they continue to face in their villages and renewed hope.

Girls, romanticize yourselves. You are a queen. You are a warrior. You are an enchantress. You are a mermaid. You are a goddess. You are all of these things and more, you are the stuff of fairytales. 

Women, traumatize others. You are a dragon. You are a wolf. You are a bump in the night. You are the last thing they see in the darkness. You are all of these things and more, you are the heart of their fucking nightmares.

I have a few copies of “Playboy” from the 1970s stashed away somewhere. One of them has a letter where a guy writes in saying, “I met this really gorgeous, sweet woman, and we were planning to get married, but she sat me down yesterday and told me that she had a sex change before she met me. Mr. Hefner, should I marry someone who used to be a man?” and the response was, “So she had a sex change, big whoop. Would you be asking this question if she’d made any other change in her life before she met you? You love the woman she is now, and that’s all that should matter. If you want kids you can adopt or something.”

I feel so conflicted right now

That awkward moment when Hugh Hefner is more trans-positive than most feminists of the same era.

The Chinese Mosaic Lines showed up in the Gobi Desert one day and no one really knows why. They were discovered on Google Maps, which sparked a frenzy of unproven theories. NASA thinks they’re a calibrating grid for spy satellites, but the Chinese Government isn’t talking. Source

Remember when you first discovered Tumblr and you would scroll down your dashboard until you reached the spot where you left the day before?




I wasn’t going to reblog this and then I saw the caption.

Researcher Benjamin Radford says he’s traced the mystery of the chupacabra myth back to a housewife in Puerto Rico. She claims that before she saw the “creature,” she watched a film with very similar-looking monsters. She reported her story to the media in 1995, and the legend began. Source

Your last painting was so good, it saved the world. I can’t wait to see what you do next. It’s not going to be easy. I’ve got a hairband to live up to.
