Yup. However, Trader Joe’s makes pretty good jelly beans — without the artificial colorings and stuff, too. Not quite as many crazy flavors, but which matters more: eating buttered popcorn jelly beans or, you know, taking care of your fellow human beings? 

I’m sure there are other good sources for jelly beans.

Jelly Belly is a local-ish company, which just means they ought to know better. For shame.

Jesus fucking christ, It’s a fantasy novel; key word FANTASYy’all need to calm the fuck down. I try to ignore this BS as much as I can but this post is pissing me off. Allow me to clarify; I have yet to…

I get so sick of this immature, myopic, and unrealistic opinion. People sure think it’s a winner! (People who enjoy ignoring research and reality, that is.)

In San Francisco last year, a man stabbed a woman in the face and arm after she didn’t respond positively to his sexually harassing her on the street.

In Bradenton, Fla., a man shot a high school senior to death after she and her friends refused to perform oral sex at his request.

In Chicago, a scared 15-year-old was hit by a car and died after she tried escaping from harassers on a bus.

Again, in Chicago, a man grabbed a 19-year-old walking on a public thoroughfare, pulled her onto a gangway and assaulted her.

In Savannah, Georgia, a woman was walking alone at night and three men approached her. She ignored them, but they pushed her to the ground and sexually assaulted her.

In Manhattan, a 29-year-old pregnant woman was killed when men catcalling from a van drove onto the sidewalk and hit her and her friend.

Last week, a runner in California — a woman — was stopped and asked, by a strange man in a car, if she wanted a ride. When she declined he ran her over twice.

FUCK YOU if you think that street harassment is a “compliment” or “no big deal” or that it’s “irrational” of us to be afraid because “what’s actually gonna happen.” Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you some more.

I haaaate linking HuffPo, but this is a useful post. The original has links for every crime mentioned.
