I’ll think on this more
|Islamophobic:||their Koran permits them to beat their wives...|
|Me:||Yes it does but could you tell me what with?|
|Me:||A blade of grass, I don't know the last time you tried to beat someone with a blade of grass but it is pretty damn impossible, you must look at the people the Qur'an was revealed to, the Arabs at that time (just like most of the world) would beat their wives brutally. To tell them they couldn't beat their wives would have caused rebellion, so Allah (swt) being the greatest of planners, revealed it in a way that was so clever. It permitted them to beat their wives (as not to cause rebellion) however only with a blade of grass (which we all know to be impossible). Then the most beautiful line came saying but surely it is better for you to forgive, do you see now that the Qur'an does not permit the brutal beating of wives which in that time would have saved the lives of many women.|
Alright so I’ve been talking about doing a giveaway for a while and now I’m finally going for it. This is a Harley Quinn statue (as seen here on amazon) that recently came into my possession. I promise her costume is red not pink, the only camera I have right now is my phone camera but you can see the shade of red on Amazon or on her hat in the close up picture.
Anyway here are the rules. Reblog as often as you like, likes don’t count. No giveaway blogs, and you do not have to follow me. If you win and you’re not a US resident I will ask you contribute $20 for shipping because shipping something of this size and weight overseas will be pricey.
Best of luck to you all, winner will be picked on July 2nd 2013!
I sure hope you are seeing a bunch of stuff about Brazil, either on Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook or TV. But I need you to understand what is going on. What’s truly going on around here. So I prepared this masterpost, a list of links that should explain this to you!
UPDATE: 18/06/2013 (or 0/18/2013)
Yesterday, monday 17 June, there were many protests in Brazil that you should know about. Some were violent, some protesters hurt people just like some police people did, but no one is severely injured (as for now). All the news I’ve got on injured people so far was a boy who fell from a bridge but seems to be fine. I will update you on the violence and injured people as well. In São Paulo last week there were at least 105 injured.
Last night, at 5pm we had protests in the following cities: São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Brasília (capital), Fortaleza, Vitória, Maceió, Belém, Salvador, Curitiba, Campos de Goytacazes, Vitória e Vila Velha, Porto Alegre and Belo Horizonte, among other small cities, like Bauru, where i live.
It is estimated that last night there more than 230,000 people protesting (100,000 in Rio, 60,650 in São Paulo, 61,500 in Brasilia, 57,120 in Belo Horizonte, 36,100 in Curitiba, 600 in Bauru).
The local media, specially TV Globo and Veja (two of the most important news media in Brazil) still call the protesters troublemakers among other names, insinuating that this is a huge misunderstandment, that people are fighting “for no reason or cause” and that political parties are said protests. I will not mention any of their names, except for Arnaldo Jabor, who said very ignorant things about protesters but apologized later on, saying he misunderstood the events.
The media remains manipulating the news, but not as much. Both the media and police are being criticized by how they can’t deal with protests, specially the police, who treats protesters like criminals. They were not trained and don’t know how to deal with large groups of people doing nothing, and that shows how unprepared our country is for huge events such as the World Cup and The Olympics.
