Hey, tell me how to say “Can I pet your dog?” in your native language.
It’s needed for important international dog petting business.
In finnish you can ask “saako sun koiraa silittää” for example :)
In Polish it’s “Czy mogę pogłaskać twojego psa?” if you’re talking to a somebody you’re friendly with. “Czy mogę pogłaskać pana psa?” if you’re talking to a male stranger/somebody of higher age/position than you (like a teacher, for example) and “Czy mogę pogłaskać pani psa?” if it’s a female stranger.
Kto jest takim uroczym małym pieskiem? Ty! - Who’s the cute little doggie? You are!
“Kan jeg klappe hunden din?”
Alternatively, “kan jeg smeike hunden din?”
“Boleh tak saya nak main dengan anjing awak?”
Comelnya anjing ini! - This dog is so cute!
Comelnya anjing-anjing ini! - These dogs are so cute!
Anjing ini comel! - This dog is cute
Anjing itu comel! - That dog is cute
“Pwede ko bang kapkapan ang iyong aso?”
“Mag ik je hond aaien?”
“Má ég klappa hundinum þínum?”
German: “Darf ich deinen Hund streicheln?”
Hungarian: Megsimogathatom a kutyáját?
Romanian: Vã pot mângâia câinele?
Low German: “Mag ik dien Hund strakeln/eien?”
Bulgarian: Mozhe li da vi pogalya kucheto?
This. Is. My. Aesthetic.
Viola Davis has never shied away from harsh truths. On Tuesday, Davis spoke to the Stuart House (a nonprofit for sexually abused children) about trauma in her own family. Through her speech, she explained how abuse changes survivors’ lives and what she wishes she could say to her sister now: “I wish I could tell my sister …”
That last line…
THIS IS FUCKING IMPORTANT
So huge. And the Stuart House could do a lot to help.
TRAGEDIOGRAFO (l’ Italia del sud è verde/blu)
The words on her tank: Боевая подруга means Fighting Girlfriend [x]
While living in Tomsk, she learned that her husband was killed fighting the forces of Nazi Germany near Kiev in August 1941. The news took two years to reach her. The news angered her extremely, and she became determined to fight the Germans in vengeance for her husband’s death
Most of the men fighting alongside Mariya just saw her as a publicity stunt and didn’t take her seriously. However, their doubts were quickly laid to rest when Mariya drove her tank straight into battle and was the first tank to breach the German lines. In doing so, she destroyed several machine gun nests and German artillery. It wasn’t long until the Germans figured out that her tank was the one they needed to really worry about.
The Germans immediately started focusing their gunfire on her medium Mariya-Vasilievna-Oktyabrskayasized tank, temporarily crippling it. Mariya didn’t sell all her worldly possessions just so she could sit around in a crippled tank. She was determined to get her vengeance. She leaped out of her tank into a hail of gunfire and started patching it back together so that she could charge even further into the enemy lines.
A month later Mariya found herself in the middle of night raid when her tank was hit by an artillery shell severing the tracks on her tank. She once again jumped out of her tank and started repairing the tracks while her gun crew provided covering fire. A few days later and a little worse for wear, she rejoined the fight.
Mariya Vasilyevna Oktyabrskaya was the first female tanker to be awarded the Hero Of The Soviet Union award; the Soviet Union’s highest award for bravery during combat.

“ In August, 1968, the country was still reeling from the assassination of Martin Luther King four months earlier, and the race riots that followed on its heels. Nightly news showed burning cities, white flight, radicals and reactionaries snarling at each other across the cultural divide.
“A brand new children’s show out of Pittsburgh, which had gone national the previous year, took a different approach. Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood introduced Officer Clemmons, a black police officer who was a kindly, responsible authority figure, kept his neighborhood safe, and was Mr. Roger’s equal, colleague and neighbor.
“Around the first anniversary of Martin Luther King’s death, Mr. Rogers invited Officer Clemmons to join him in soaking their tired feet in a plastic wading pool. And there they were, brown feet and pasty white feet, side by side in the water. Silently, contemplatively, without comment.
“25 years later, when the actor playing Officer Clemmons retired, his last scene on the show revisited that same wading pool, this time reminiscing. Officer Clemmons asked Mr. Rogers what he’d been thinking during their silent interlude a quarter century before. Fred Rogers’ answer was that he’d been thinking of the many ways people say “I love you.”

Mr Rogers was one of the good ones.

Meet Mary Numair, a 29-year-old copywriter from Portland, Oregon. She describes herself as a “generally kind person” and likes cats.
Over the last few weeks, Mary had seen a woman holding a sign that read “abortion kills children” outside the Planned Parenthood building near her office.
Mary said she is a supporter of Planned Parenthood – the non-profit organisation that provides reproductive health and family-planning support in the U.S. and internationally – because it had helped her personally in the past. When she was 20years old, the clinic treated her for UTIs and yeast infections. They also provided her with her first birth-control pills.
“Planned Parenthood is vital resource for so many people,” she told BuzzFeed News.“We have to look beyond the pro-life/pro-choice debate and recognize this organization is out there providing some of the most important care to our sensitive medical needs.”
After several failed attempts at approaching the protesters outside her local clinic to discuss their complaints and reason with them, she decided to try a different approach.
Yesterday, Mary approached the anti-Planned Parenthood protesters while chanting “yeast infection” and holding [a sign].
“The protesters kept moving their children away from my yeasty cries, so I kept moving closer,” she joked.
“Initially they had spread down the sidewalks on both sides of the street, but after some yelling and high kicks on my part, they huddled together,” she said.
“They glared at my princess wave and cheerleader enthusiasm, and they began a prayer circle. This is when I really shined. I have never made my voice louder.”
After a short while, Mary’s chant ended up driving the protesters away. She said they grew tired of her shouts and eventually left, shaking their heads.
“One woman turned around during their prayer to shake her head at me, to which I responded: ‘OMG do you have a yeast infection? I know who can help you!’ She covered her kid’s ears,” she said.
Mary said although one man drove past and called her a “
whore” from his car, many others were “really supportive”.
Does Mary have any plans for other similar protests? “Fuck. Yes. I. Do,” she replied. (source)
I can’t even tell you how happy this makes me. Thank you @buzzfeed lol. We definitely need to do this EVERYWHERE bc it’s time to make those shithead anti-choicers uncomfortable hahah
What do you think @prochoice-or-gtfo, @prochoiceamerica, @prochoicecanadian, @proudly-pro-choice, @prochoiceisprogress, @prochoiceisprolife, @oh-snap-pro-choice, @plannedparenthood, & @prochoicehumor?
I think this is pretty brilliant. Anti-abortion protesters don’t seem to care about all the necessary services that Planned Parenthood provides. I think it’s amazing that this woman had the courage and spirit to shut down a whole group of protesters.
Right?!? And she did it a) w/o violence or even losing her shit on anyone, and b) while demonstrating anti-choicers’ hypocrisy. It’s perfectly fine if they expose their kids to all their very graphic and horrifying anti-choice material and language but GOD FORBID they hear about yeast infections….. /sarcasm
also just in case you needed reminding that anti-choicers are actually just terrified of vaginas
Proud to have this amazing woman representing Portland Fucking Oregon.
