Another photo, another pie! @vduersch’s take on our Fresh Strawberry Pie showcases the true beauty of red, ripe berries. But we want to know, where’s our slice? (A live Instagram snapshot from the Test Kitchen. http://ift.tt/1vtmmbW)

I say “Drooooooool”.

A nice little place that I found at the Alderney Landing Market this afternoon. Nice people work there, and the soaps smell great.

Facebook Won’t Let Faggots Say “Faggot”
In the last two months, Facebook has blocked me from posting at least three times. I wasn’t banned for using racial epithets or putting up graphic porn—anonymous administrators kicked me off the world’s most popular social media site because I said “faggot.”
I don’t remember how many times I’ve been blocked—I am a well-documented faggot, and I occasionally jokingly refer to myself or my gay friends as faggots, the same way some blacks use the N-word and gay activists used queer in the early 90s. At the end of April, I called my friend Gabriel a fag in the comments section of a link I had posted and he liked my comment. We do that sort of thing all the time, but within a few hours, Facebook blocked me from posting for seven days.
I can understand why Facebook would block a heterosexual who said faggot—at Catholic school, straight boys used the word to make fun of me on the playground nearly every day—but Gabriel and I always use the homophobic slur in a joking or prideful way, robbing it of its harmful meaning. The first time I got banned for using the term, I assumed some sort of hate speech–detecting algorithm had mistaken me for a hetero, but then I remembered Facebook regularly shows me HIV ads targeted at gay men. Zuckerberg and company know my sexual preference—I even say I like boys on my profile.

After I got banned that time, I decided to find out how Facebook decides who gets blocked for saying faggot. The social network’s terms page is vague about this topic: You can’t “bully, intimidate, or harass” anyone or post “hate speech.”

These are the victims of the May 23, 2014 Isla Vista, CA killings. They’ll receive too little face time for their loss.


It’s sad that their lives have been lost again in a frenzy of irrational blame.

The mass media tends to glorify the perps.What about the vics?
