Tumblr will ban all adult content on December 17th

RIP Tumblr:

Tumblr will permanently ban adult content from its platform on December 17th in a move that will eradicate porn-related communities on the platform and fundamentally alter how the service is used. The ban includes explicit sexual content and nudity with a few exceptions, the company tells The Verge. The new policy’s announcement comes just days after Tumblr was removed from Apple’s iOS App Store over a child pornography incident, but it extends far beyond that matter alone. “Adult content will no longer be allowed here,” the company flatly states in a blog post set to be published on Monday.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Says All Americans Should Have the Affordable Healthcare she now gets as a Congresswoman

She’s right. Why we aren’t in the streets protesting about this every, single, day just astounds me.

Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized the disparities in healthcare offered to regular citizens and lawmakers and advocated reforming the healthcare system.

“In my on-boarding to Congress, I get to pick my insurance plan,” the incoming New York legislator tweeted on Saturday evening.

“As a waitress, I had to pay more than TWICE what I’d pay as a member of Congress. It’s frustrating that Congressmembers would deny other people affordability that they themselves enjoy. Time for #MedicareForAll.”

George H W Bush is Dead

I was in middle school/high school when he was President so the only thing I really recall is Dana Carvey’s impression. He just seemed to be a weak, one term President whose sex life gave us 8 dreadful years from 2000 to 2008 and several wars.

Didn’t seem to be much of a friend to us godless, so I’ll just end the eulogy here. RIP?

Arizona Man Accidentally Shoots Himself in Groin in Walmart

Thoughts and prayers:

A man was taken to hospital in Arizona this week after shooting himself in the groin area inside a Walmart in Buckeye, Maricopa County.

The local police department tweeted on Tuesday officers were working what appeared to be a “self-inflicted accidental shooting” inside the Watson and Yuma Walmart.

Buckeye PD later confirmed in an update: “Adult male accidentally shot himself in the groin area inside the Walmart Watson & Yuma. Being transported to hospital. No other injuries.”

The Arizona Republic newspaper reported the incident occurred at around 6:30 p.m. after a semiautomatic handgun that was being held in the man’s waistband began to slip. The gun, which was not in a holster, discharged as he attempted to reposition it, the man told cops.
