Listen, we’re not trying to hate on reblogging; it is, afterall, one of the features that makes Tumblr Tumblr. That being said, no reblogged photo or quote can beat original content, and Roxane Gay’s Tumblr is made up of almost entirely of her own material. There’s everything from an essay about the trial of Michael Dunn, to an explanation about why she doesn’t like George Saunders’s Tenth of December, to her yearly reading list. Oh and, not to brag, but when she does reblog, she reblogs us. So yeah, I guess we’re pretty cool.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is
likely to veto the state’s controversial measure that could allow businesses to refuse service to gay and lesbians due to religious beliefs, according to three people close to the governor and familiar with her thinking.
One of those is longtime Brewer political adviser Chuck Coughlin, who told NBC News: “It’s been her proclivity in the past to focus on the priorities she wants them [the legislature] to accomplish, and this was clearly not part of her agenda.
"She doesn’t want to take any actions that could jeopardize the economic momentum we’ve seen here in Arizona,” said another person close to the governor.

Or, y’know, HUMAN RIGHTS AND STUFF.
No, you can’t deny women their basic rights and pretend it’s about your ‘religious freedom.’ If you don’t like birth control, don’t use it. Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs.
It’s amazing how fast your mood can change after you step in some water with socks on.
