People Either Love Or Hate This Woman's Graduation Photo

Human beings are hypocritical animals.

I don’t really think I need to dig that deep to prove my point, but how many times have you lamented about not being in shape, while conveniently forgetting you had an entire sleeve of Oreos while binge watching Netflix the same night you were “too tired” to go to the gym.

Or we all have that one friend who’s always blaming their failed relationships on the other person when they refuse to acknowledge that they, themselves, are the one who’s insanely difficult to put up with.

And then there are situations which are simply puzzling:

“Women for Trump” has a lot of people confused, though plenty of women did actually vote for Trump in the election.

But that’s not what’s causing a kerfuffle about Spencer’s photos online. No, what got people’s feathers in a tizzy is the fact that she’s rocking a flat belly showing off the handle of a pistol tucked into the front of her white jeans.

Which ended up starting a conversation on the importance of preserving second amendment rights and the belief that all of us are free and the government’s not totally taking advantage of us because we’re able to buy guns at our local Walmart.

Some people loved Spencer’s photo.

Some Twitter users pointed to the clear racial double standard when people of color pose with weapons as opposed to when white, blonde women pose with them.

Spencer’s photo caught a lot of attention and even nabbed her an interview on Fox News where she explained that one of the main reasons she took the photo was to inspire women and let them know that they can be safe on a college campus.

Spencer’s post did inspire other women to share their own gun-rocking photos.

Some guys were calling it “real feminism.”

One Twitter user argued that there are very few people who want to “take guns away,” but that “gun sense” needs to be practiced.

Flaunting and sexualizing firearms might look cool, but should you do it?

This Birth Photo Shoot Got Real When Mom Couldn't Make It To A Hospital Bed

Mother Jes Hogan had Little Leapling photographer Tammy Karin on standby to take photos of the birth of her sixth child. Bored Pandareports that Karin was ready, because Hogan had been experiencing contractions for days. The parents decided it was time to go to the hospital, because the contractions hadn’t led to labor, and they thought it may have to be induced. That’s not exactly what happened—basically as soon as everyone arrived at the ER, baby Max decided he was ready to come out. Like, extremely ready.

Hogan ended up giving birth in the hospital hallway and it was pretty dramatic:

Brace yourself. The following photos show a woman giving birth extremely explicitly. Ready? Okay.

Hogan’s husband, Travis, was on hand to catch Max. He’d had some warning.

“As we neared the last turn to the hospital I began screaming that baby was coming,” Hogan told BP. “Travis honked the horn rapidly as I screamed through the contractions and he pulled quickly into the ER drive.”

Karin tried to notify the receptionist that they needed medical personnel immediately, but it was too late.

“Oh god, he’s here,” Hogan says she yelled. “I then started to take my pants off because I could feel my body pushing the baby’s head out. I reached down and could feel his head crowning with my hand. I looked at my husband and said, ‘Travis catch him!’ Without any hesitation, he did just that as I felt my body involuntarily pushing his head the rest of the way out.”

A medical professional did make it to Hogan’s side, thankfully, but nature did most of the work in this instance.

And so, Max was born on the floor of a hospital hallway.

But it doesn’t seem like Hogan cared. That’s a moment you kind of get lost in?

“It was my craziest birth, but also, the most perfect. It was not at all what I had planned, but it ended without any intervention, with a healthy baby, and amazing support people by our sides. It was beautiful and I’ll forever love every memory of it,” she said.

Max is the couple’s first son, and obviously a scene stealer already.

Karin also put together a little video with more of the birth story on Facebook.

Her pictures of this unusual birth went viral, but Karin wants to be clear that it wasn’t an accident that she was on hand for the big moment. It’s her job, and she takes lots of photos of moms in the moment they bring a kid into the world.

They just usually do it someplace more planned. Congrats to the beautiful family!

Husband Learns He's At An Instagram-Famous Hotel, Stages Ridiculous Photo Shoot

Imgur user Gilbert Jasono recently visited the luxury resort Ponta dos Ganchos in Brazil for his honeymoon. While there, his wife informed him that the resort is popular with Brazilian Instagram models. 

So while there, he decided to look through their Instagram accounts and painstakingly recreate their photos. The results? Magical. 

Yes, he spent his honeymoon adding monochrome filters to these excellent modelling shots. 

This man sacrificed precious vacation time for our amusement. 

And we think it was worth it. 

There were plenty of beach shots, obviously. 

And one on a tree bench. 

This is the greatest thing ever.

Photo Of Starbucks' New Holiday Season Cups Appears Online

It’s mid-October, and you know what that means: it’s time for companies to start preparing for Christmas!  

One such company, Starbucks Coffee, courts controversy every year  with their Holiday Cups – no matter how “Holiday” themed they turn out to be. Past cups have ranged from plain red, to wintery nature scenes, to open references to Christmas. 

This year, well before the big unveiling, a Starbucks employee leaked the holiday cup design on Reddit:

In 2015, Starbucks’ plain red cup led to a boycott from evangelical Christians who believed the company “hated Jesus.” It seems they’ve taken steps to avoid that scenario by including a whimsical Christmas tree and gifts on this cup. Good luck with that.

I mean, certainly someone will be offended by this design…

The mockery was swift…

Some are comparing the design to some familiar stories…

It’s also possible, of course, that this isn’t Starbucks’ only design. Last year, they crowd-sourced 13 designs from 13 different women, 6 of whom were from other countries. Perhaps we’ve finally reached a point, as a  species, where one of these designs will allow us to order a coffee (or not) and go on with our lives without being outraged. 

Ya think?

People Are Losing It Over This Viral NSFW Wedding Photo

A Dutch photographer name Michel Klooster has got everyone clutching their pearls with this very naughty wedding photo of a couple that just could not wait to get to the honeymoon suite. The image has gone viral because of the very convincing simulation of oral sex:

Klooster also took a shot of the same couple canoodling in the back of a car, but after that suggestive pic, it seems comparatively innocent:

Klooster toldThe Huffington Post that the image was not his idea at all. It was the mother of the bride’s concept.

“We were taking photos and she [told] me that they wanted that kind of picture, but the bride and groom didn’t dare ask me,” he wrote to them in a Facebook message. “Then I just said, ‘Of course, we are gonna do it.’ So I suggested where they need to stand for the right vibe!”

There has been something of an outcry from people who think Klooster and his naughty pic are what’s wrong with the world today, but he thinks everyone’s got their panties in a twist over nothing.

“You see nothing in this picture, but it looks like something is going on there,” he said. “Every picture you’ll take with that kind of question is interesting to watch. For me, sex is one of the most natural things we do in life. It’s normal! Everyone does it. We don’t live in the 1900s anymore.”

He added that, “there are bigger problems in the world than this funny picture.” Also, though there are a fair number of people who don’t like it, a whole bunch do. Klooster says he’s been contacted by lots of couples who want him to shoot their wedding, and a few other scenarios.

“If it’s not porn, I don’t have any problems with that,” he said.

Do you think the picture is pure smut? Or do you agree with Klooster that it’s harmless fun?

Photo Of People Guarding Empty Lawn For Pro-Trump Rally Takes Internet By Storm

Saturday’s “Mother of All Rallies” turned out to be anything but.

The D.C. rally, which was expected to draw thousands of Trump supporters to the national mall, only managed to attract a few hundred attendees.

Even a neighboring rally of Insane Clown Posse fans managed to garner a larger crowd:

A photo of dozens of guards stationed along the perimeter of the mostly-empty pro-Trump rally quickly spread on Twitter:

People agreed that maybe the rally…over-estimated their security needs…

In the end, it was not a great day to be a Trump supporter…

Student Snaps A Viral Photo Of Her Classmate With A Racist Pep Rally Sign

In a Facebook post that was shared over 3,000 times, a Hispanic teen shared an image of several of her classmates at a pep rally, one holding up a sign that read, “Put the panic back in Hispanic.” Another held a Trump campaign flag. Pep rallies are sure different than they were when I was a teen, huh?

“This happened yesterday at our school pep rally,” wrote the teen, Jennifer Lopez Vazquez. “They know it’s Hispanic Month. That’s very disrespectful in so my ways. But it’s funny to think that our school thinks it ‘OKAY’ this is Honestly what white trash looks like.”

The original caption on image, which was posted on Instagram by one of the teens in the photo, read, “Put the Panic back in Hispanic. #dontgetButthurt I’m honestly not gonna care if you do anyways so!! #sorryboutit.”

She might be sorry now, though. Since the photo has gone viral, local newspapers have picked up the story, and school administrators are investigating the behavior. 

“We are aware of a photo that appears to be taken at a Robertsdale High School football pep rally Friday Sept. 15 that is circulating on social media containing political banners and unacceptable language,” said the school’s superintendent in a statement. “School administrators, as well as my office, are following up on the matter.”

Basically: yikes. Also, high school students, you’re too young and under-developed to start experimenting with edgy “comedy.” (Like, what is the joke here, exactly?) Save it for the professionals.

Photo Of Black Policeman Guarding Charlottesville Protesters Debunked As Fake News

Be careful of what you read on the Internet — it’s not always trustworthy! For instance, following the protests in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday, a Facebook post was circulated that supposedly was taken at Saturday’s protest, featuring a photo of a black police officer protecting the white supremacists attending the event. 

Tweets of the photo generated thousands of favorites and retweets on Twitter before users realized it was actually taken back in July.

There was another white supremacist rally in Charlottesville on July 8, 2017, which is likely where this photo was taken. More than a thousand people were in attendance, including about 50 Ku Klux Klan members. According to USA Today, police used tear gas on the crowd, and 22 people were arrested.

There was also a white supremacist rally at the same site in May, which featured very similar torches to those which were a part of the most recent protest.

It’s also true that this isn’t the only picture of a black cop protecting white supremacists.

However, this photo was definitely not taken a the rally this past weekend, no matter what posters would have you believe. Many have now taken down their statuses and tweets, apologizing for the mistake. 

Always be on the lookout for fake news!
