Swing, though, started in the wrong place. He didn’t look around, and watch and learn, and then say, ‘This is how people are, how do we deal with it?’ No, he sat and thought: This is how the people ought to be, how do we change them?’ And that was a good enough thought for a priest but not for a copper, because Swing’s patient, pedantic way of operating had turned policing on its head.

Cannibal Holocaust (1980) | Ruggero Deodato | Italy | Video nasty 14 of 72

Cannibal Holocaust is a 1980 Italian cannibal film. Influenced by the works of Mondo director Gualtiero Jacopetti, the film was inspired by Italian media coverage of Red Brigade terrorism. The coverage included news reports Deodato believed to be staged, an idea which became an integral aspect of the film’s story. Cannibal Holocaust was filmed primarily in the Amazon Rainforest with real indigenous tribes interacting with American and Italian actors.

Critics remain split on their stances of Cannibal Holocaust. Supporters of the film cite it as a serious and well-made social commentary on the modern world. Detractors, however, criticize the acting, the over-the-top gore, and the genuine animal slayings and point to an alleged hypocrisy that the film presents.

Cannibal Holocaust also faced censorship issues in other countries around the world. In 1981, video releases were not required to pass before the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), which had power to ban films in the UK. Cannibal Holocaust was released straight-to-video there, thus circumventing the possible banning of the film. In 1983, the Department of Public Prosecutions compiled a list of 72 video releases that were not brought before the BBFC for certification and declared them prosecutable for obscenity. This list of “video nasties” included Cannibal Holocaust, which was successfully prosecuted and banned. In 2011, after numerous versions with extensive mandated cuts had been released in years prior, the BBFC waived all but one of their previous edits, passing Cannibal Holocaust with 15 seconds of cuts. It was determined that the only scene that breached the BBFC’s guidelines was the killing of a coatimundi, and the BBFC acknowledged that previous cuts were reactionary to the film’s reputation. (x)

the female body is hardcore as fuck. 

Yes is it.

so is the male body
it’s sad to see so many people like this on this website


OP is praising the fact that women hold a fucking infant in their belly the size of a ribcage, get the fuck over yourself for 3.5 seconds.

*~*~follow for more fragile male ego~*~*

The male body is more susceptible to hereditary diseases because of their lack of a second X chromosome. Their testosterone production ages them faster and causes them to die sooner. Their center of gravity is higher because of their tiny little hips and overgrown shoulders, making them easier to topple. Their gonads are placed outside of the body, in a very vulnerable position, because they do not function properly if they get a little bit warmer than usual. They have non-functional nipples, but still enough breast tissue to get cancer.The male body is not hardcore. The male body is to the female body what a shoddy, unstable mod is to a well-estabilished piece of software. Sit the fuck down. And try to not crush your fragile pathetic outside gonads when you do it.

I ran a panel this past weekend with Esme Bianco (Ros, Game of Thrones) and Commander Holly (Heroes of Cosplay) called ‘Cosplay and Burlesque’. An audience member asked “What is your take on the Cosplay =/= Consent movement?” Esme looked confused, so we explained what cosplayers sometimes experience at conventions - inappropriate touching, groping, leering, and lewd, rude commentary - and there was a movement in progress that notified people that this behavior is Not Okay.

Esme looked horrified.

Esme has 10 years of burlesque experience. "In all my time of strip-teasing, of getting naked on stage, I never had those issues with the audience.”

So. Putting that out there.
