*white dude voice* Let’s take a look at the dictionary definition, shall we?
being genderless literally can be dated back to mesopotamia and there are still people who act like its an internet fad thats just incredible to me
Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever been a stripper?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever been to a strip club.
Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever done porn?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever watched porn.
You’re the reason we exist.
You’re the demand to our supply.
If you disdain sex workers, don’t you dare consume our labor.
As they say in the industry, “People jack off with the left hand and point with the right.”
No I fucking LOVE this.
10 word story (via dakilanggerlpren) —
Move over kale, there’s a new superfood in town and it’s here to end world hunger.
The could-be hero is called breadfruit although it doesn’t really seem like a fruit at all. It’s large with prickly skin and tastes like a baked potato or — you guessed it — bread when prepared.
Breadfruit grows on tall trees in tropical areas like Hawaii, Samoa, and the Caribbean. It’s high in energy from carbohydrates, low in fat, and has more potassium than 10 bananas.
But how will this tropical fruit feed the world?
According to the National Tropical Botanical Garden (NTBG), more than 80% of the world’s hungry live in tropical or subtropical regions — the type of environment that is perfect for growing breadfruit trees. These trees are very easy to maintain and can bear an abundance of fruit for decades.
Organizations like Global Breadfruit and NTBG’s Breadfruit Institute are dedicated to promoting the superfood and spreading it to areas of the world that need it most. “Every time we plant one of these trees, we’re reducing the susceptibility to famine and starvation in the country where the tree is going,” said Josh Schneider a horticulturist and partner to Global Breadfruit.
And then in a month you will see it in wholefoods where white people will pay $20 for it and all the people it was supposed to help will instead be making criminal wages so some disgusting dirty hipster can ignore whiteness and condescendlying look down on others for what they can afford to eat.
Imma need folks to reread that bolded a good 10 times until the point sticks
lmao we been known about breadfruit
it’s a staple in a lot of west indian households, we grow it on my parents farm
white people stay late to everything
white people think they discovered food
wtf lmaooo breadfruit is called kos in Sri Lanka and we’ve been eating it forever and a dayyyyyyyy you can eat kos when it’s still green, you can eat it when it’s full-ripe and you can eat it when it’s over-ripe and pungent. you can roast the seeds. you can make curry. you can eat it like yams. literally kos is the greatest thing ever and if i see this in whole foods i’m going to shove one on the head of every white hipster with dreadlocks
…The fact that they’re so earnestly being like “IF WE BRING THIS TO SUB TROPICAL REGIONS WE COULD FEED THE PEOPLE THERE” when the people there have been eating it for years and years and years is just SAD. SMH, fellow white people-stop acting like things only start to exist when we “discover” them. Just. Shut. Up.
P.S. If breadfruit becomes like quinoa and white people wanting it drives the prices up so native people for whom it’s been a staple for years suddenly can’t afford it so Joe Blow at Whole Foods can buy it and brag about how, like, environmentally friendly he is…I will cut someone.
Reblogging this for the commentary.
My dad said in Dominica it is called yampen or something like that. But yeah please don’t Columbus this too!!!!
FOR BOLDED: But yeah please don’t Columbus this too!!!!
… I only get to eat it when I visit the PU up in NYC. And it’s one of the few foods I’m NOT allergic to. I joke all the time that my body rebooted to an earlier system format and will only accept ‘ancestral nutritional programming’.
Sprouts (anyone else remember the late 80’s when it was all about Sprouts?), Soy/Tofu. Quinoa. Kale. Soursop. Collard Greens. Jicama. Now Breadfood. Every fucking thing brown and black people eat is suddenly a ‘superfood’ when white westerners people want it. Or when the last ‘superfood’ trends out.
Fuck ‘em all.
It’s a constant Columbusing is right.

Very important! All my chronic condition people take note.
I was just reminded today that I’m under no obligation to tell potential employers I have diabetes. Only tell them about stuff like that when you’re hired so you can make sure you get the accommodations you need.
