FDA approves pill to prevent HIV infections
The drug, Truvada, is the first medication intended to prevent HIV infections in people having sex with infected individuals.
IT JUST GOT REAL
What good news for the world.
Remember when this made the news weeks ago and US news outlets didn’t find it worth reporting?
This should have like, 1,000% more notes.
This is amazing.
Are you telling me that those Ryan Gosling cupcakes have 45,000 notes and this post hasn’t even reached 5,000?
And it was on this day that this appeared on my dash, and I said “Damn, finally some good news!” and reblogged the hell out of it.
Official FDA Press Release, aka not behind a paywall.

FAREWELL MY FRIENDS I’M NOW IN A BETTER PLACE
"How the Media Failed Women in 2013," courtesy of Miss Representation. This is mind-boggling and you must watch it right now.
Not much time left to make Klaine winners of the Favorite Onscreen Chemistry award! Less than 40 hours to be exact! To see how much time is left exactly check here .
In these last few hours voting will be cray cray. All fandoms will come together for the final push so we should and NEED to do the same!
Vote as much as you can. Vote SMART. Don’t waste time on slow and unreliable platforms like Twitter (accounts can get suspended, typos and order could make tweets not count as votes), vote where you can get in way more votes in the same time.
In my experience that is definitely the PCA app (tutorial on how to quickly vote on iOS here) and Facebook (either here or here if you want to work with the refresh button). Facebook asks you to personalize your voting experience but you don’t have to do that for your votes to count. It will also ask you if it can post on your behalf but you can “skip” that part and that was that.
If your computer or internet is too slow for your taste using the refresh method, use the one I am using.
For Twitter post and retweet tweets with the following: kurt/blaine #chemistry #peopleschoice
Be careful with order and spelling otherwise your tweets and retweets won’t count.
Voting ends tomorrow, December 5th @ 11:59PM EST. Which means you have all of Thursday and depending on your timezone some of Friday left to vote!
Let’s make this happen for Kurt and Blaine, for Chris and Darren, for us. Let’s win this thing!
Now we still have time. In 2 days it will be too late. All we can do then is cross our fingers!
GO GO GO, Klainers.

I never get tired of this photo.
Ella Fitzgerald was not allowed to play at Mocambo because of her race. Then, one of Ella’s biggest fans made a telephone call that quite possibly changed the path of her career for good. Here, Ella tells the story of how Marilyn Monroe changed her life:
“I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt… she personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she would take a front table every night. She told him – and it was true, due to Marilyn’s superstar status – that the press would go wild. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. The press went overboard. After that, I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it.”
all women were bigger and stronger than you
and thought they were smarter
women were the ones who started wars
too many of your friends had been raped by women wielding giant dildos
and no K-Y Jelly
the state trooper
who pulled you over on the New Jersey Turnpike
was a woman
and carried a gun
the ability to menstruate
was the prerequisite for most high-paying jobs
your attractiveness to women depended
on the size of your penis
every time women saw you
they’d hoot and make jerking motions with their hands
women were always making jokes
about how ugly penises are
and how bad sperm tastes
you had to explain what’s wrong with your car
to big sweaty women with greasy hands
who stared at your crotch
in a garage where you are surrounded
by posters of naked men with hard-ons
men’s magazines featured cover photos
of 14-year-old boys
tucked into the front of their jeans
and articles like:
“How to tell if your wife is unfaithful”
“What your doctor won’t tell you about your prostate”
“The truth about impotence”
the doctor who examined your prostate
was a woman
and called you “Honey”
you had to inhale your boss’s stale cigar breath
as she insisted that sleeping with her
was part of the job
you couldn’t get away because
the company dress code required
you wear shoes
designed to keep you from running
And what if
after all that
women still wanted you
to love them.
For the Men Who Still Don’t Get It, written 20 years ago by Carol Diehl.
She wrote a post about the history of this poem that is worth reading.
So, every year around this time I start going through my cookbooks and online bookmarks for what I’m going to make at Christmas - which I would probably lose by the 23rd, causing a mad dash around the kitchen leading to an alcoholic stupor on the 24th when I realised I had nothing to make. So … this year I thought I’d make it public and then I’d know exactly where to find it. Just FYI, I live in New Zealand, and our typical christmas is usually a BBQ with lots of salads, so this isn’t exactly a ‘traditional’ collection - and the sweet/dessert section is the biggest - but then, can you blame me?

Well, guess we got to prove Mr. Colfer wrong here, Reblog if you want Chris on Dancing with the Stars. He would be amazing and how fun would it be to watch him. Someone also start this campaign on twitter.
Or, we could just do something revolutionary and actually respect his wishes.
- He doesn’t have the time
- He clearly doesn’t want to
- Above all, Amber hasn’t even had the trophy for twelve hours and people are trying to get Chris involved. Damn it, let the girl bask in the glow for a bit before you try to force your fave into the spotlight. Like, am I the only one who sees this sort of thing as rude?
Do people realise he has to agree/want to go on the damn show to begin with? And that since he has no interest besides supporting his girl, then maybe you should let him live his own life?
Someone just used my art on an album cover WITHOUT my permission
I am not some kid who you can just take art from and use it for album covers. I am an artist who has rights. I won’t take this at all.
GUYS REBLOG THIS.
