#text #oh my god #OH MY GOD #PLEASE SHUT THE FUCK UP #THEY GATHERED 250 OF THE MOST COMMON NAMES#ONLY 250 #THERE ARE A LOT MORE FUCKIGN NAMES IN THE WORLD #SO A LOT FO FUCKING PEOPLE DONT HAVE THEIR NAME ON A FUCKING COKE BOTTLE #PLEASE GET OVER YOURSELF #ITS JUST A COKE BOTTLE #GOD DAMN #wank (thesampala)

Most Popular Names (Male and Female): (Source)

Algeria: Mohamed and Fatima

Brazil: Miguel and Sophia

India: Aarav and Saanvi

Malaysia: Muhamad and Nor

Taiwan: Chia-hao (家豪) and Shu-fen (淑芬)

Japan: Hiroto and Yuina

Philippines: John Paul and Althea

Czech Republic: Jakub and Eliška

You let me know if all of those common names made it on a Coke bottle.

omg

courtney stop

i think you ignored the part where i say its literally just a coke bottle

No, I got that part when you screamed it in the tags. And it’s not just a coke bottle. It’s a microaggression and those build up. Quickly.

First of all, screaming at people of color to shut up about their problems and “get over” themselves is rude, to put it mildly. But I’m not sure where nifflerstorm is getting their information, because it seems like they’re under the impression that the US/UK names are the ones going out across the globe? And the names nifflerstorm gave are actually inaccurate, because Coke is using the most common names for “teens and millenials,” while all the names nifflerstorm gave are the most popular baby names from various years between 2010 and 2013.

Okay so Coke chose the 250 most common names per country, in most cases, while some places (like Australia) got to vote on which names made the bottles.

Look at all dem Japanese names on bottles in Japan:

Or the list of names for South Africa, which can be found here:

Or the list of names for the Philippines:

And here’s the full list for the UK:

And the US:

Even the UK and US ones have a surprising amount of diversity; as soon as I heard about the campaign I sighed and assumed it would be all white names, but I went online to check, and was pleasantly surprised. Granted, it’s still a limited list, but it reflects naming trends.

In my opinion, one thing Coke could have done better is to account for different spellings of names and combined all names of various spellings into one standardized entry, which would both shorten the list (combining Sarah/Sara, John/Jon, Corey/Cory) to make room for more names and also give names of minorities, which often have more variation in spelling (given that the English alphabet doesn’t align with other phonetic systems as well, and that names are often spelled phonetically), a chance to appear higher on the list of names. Other than that, though, I think they’ve done a pretty good job.

As Luke gets stronger in the Force, Obi-Wan becomes more material to him. [Return of the Jedi] is the clearest we’ve ever seen a Force ghost. In A New Hope, he was just a voice. In the beginning of The Empire Strikes Back, […] you could barely see him. At the end of The Empire Strikes Back, you saw him a lot more clearer. And [in Return of the Jedi], we see him clearer still. And that, I believe, is because Luke, his ability to perceive these things is increasing. He can now see these things. He can feel these things. He’s stronger in the Force. - Sam Witwer (Rebel Force Radio Film Commentary for Return of the Jedi)

More than half the questions I am asked are about the politics of the way I look. What it feels like to be not skinny/dark-skinned/a minority/not conventionally pretty/female/etc. It’s not very interesting to me, but I know it’s interesting to people reading an interview. Sometimes I get jealous of white male showrunners when 90 percent of their questions are about characters, story structure, creative inspiration, or, hell, even the business of getting a show on the air. Because as a result, the interview of me reads like I’m interested only in talking about my outward appearance and the politics of being a minority and how I fit into Hollywood, blah blah blah. I want to shout, “Those were the only questions they asked!”

.@Stoya can’t give talks in high schools, because she makes porn films. If she could, here’s what she’d say about respecting other people’s boundaries during sex.
A person’s first condom, strap-on, or lacy thong doesn’t come with a pamphlet explaining active consent. Tampon companies don’t print statements on the back of their boxes encouraging teenagers to express their desires and ask for the desires of their sexual partners. Someone should do something about this. It would be extremely inappropriate for me to march into high schools and begin expounding upon communication, respecting other people’s limits, and taking responsibility for expressing your own. What I can do is expound upon some basic guidelines on the internet and hope the core concepts trickle down. 
So, here they are: 
1. Ask the people you will be having sex with what their preferences and limits are. This fosters active consent and encourages communication. 
2. In order for a sexual partner to be able to give you what you want, you have to tell them what your desires are. A sexual partner can’t respect your limits if you don’t express them. 
3. It is completely OK to retract your consent during a sex act. You can say that something is more intense than you thought it would be and you are no longer OK with it. If you do not speak up your partner(s) have no guaranteed way of knowing that you are unhappy or uncomfortable. 
4. If a sexual partner says something hurts, uses a “safe word” or other signal to communicate that they want the sexual interaction to stop, or just looks unhappy, freaked out, or generally not OK, you need to stop what you’re doing and check in with them.
5. If your partner(s) are drunk or high, their ability to consent is questionable. If they’ve previously expressed distaste for anal sex and are slurring “Fuck my asshole” you should politely decline and bring the subject up later when they’re sober. This applies to any sexual act that you have not previously engaged in with this person. 
6. As a general rule, don’t penetrate an orifice, pee, vomit, or bleed on someone, or slap them around without discussing the act first. 
7. If your sexual partner(s) express a limit or ask for something to stop and you do not respect it, you are stepping onto a scale that ranges from “jerk” to “full-on rapist”. Personally, I don’t want to be on that scale at all, and I don’t want to engage in sexual activity with anyone who does hang out on that scale. 
8. If one of your sexual partners steps on to the jerk-to-full-on rapist scale, call them out on it. You have the right to end the sexual activity you are engaged in and to decline sexual activity with them in the future. There you are. If any condom companies want to use those bits on their wrappers, hit me up.

Fuck I love her

Not too long ago I had someone laughing at me for asking so many questions and stuff and they said they appreciated it but it was strange to them. I felt bad just because it was very obvious that no one ever took her safety/pleasure into consideration.
