Meet the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police, serving the capital of Iceland. By the looks of their incredible Instagram account, a normal day includes holding kittens, eating candy and wearing false mustaches.
For the record the Icelandic police are probably the best police force in the world, There has only been one instance where an officer shot and killed a civilian in the entire history of the country (which is nearly a hundred years) and everyone was completely devastated by it, the police especially — because, as made clear in their statements after the incident, they understand their function is to protect the people. Not to mention that their general police go unarmed except for special squads.
Let’s run through some more facts while we’re on the subject: Compared to 31,000+ shooting deaths in the US in 2009, Iceland had… 4, because they have very rigorous screening processes for gun permits. There is very little economic disparity between upper, middle and lower classes, and social welfare programs take care of their people. Drug use affects less than 1% of the population between 15 and 65 years old, and 90% of drug-related court cases are settled with a fine rather than jail time. Violent crime is virtually non-existent. [x]
Iceland is like if you took the entire idea of chill and personified it as an country, and this exemplifies that.
It’s name is Iceland. What do you expect?

one of the most
i’ve heard in the longest time, and the result? the result from these men who claim that they would be all for feminism if it weren’t for all “the man hating”?
do not be fooled for one fucking second
you can be as kind, calm, attractive and male inclusive as they demand for our voices to matter and the result is the same.
these people do not hate feminism because it “hates men”, these people have historically and to this day hated feminism because it’s purpose will result in the taking away of their power.

If you want to be able to say the “n-word,” you better be ready to accept the “n-word” lifestyle that comes with it.
It’s on very rare occasions that someone happens to offend me when I hear them use the N word. Like..bruh..your a little white girl named Casey and you live in the suburbs away from all the “niggas” you’re trying to be like. You and your 14 year old friends like to call each other nigga but if a black person was actually around you you’d lose all recollection of hearing or using the word. Stick to saying “nigga” behind closed doors, kid. You say it thinking it’s cool but in America it’s a curse. Be aware of what you say and who you say it to. I joke and kid about the word but it still carries a history of hate. Black culture has transformed it into a word we now have control of. In a way it’s like a weird badge of honor. So yeah, you might hear me and a few friends throw it around casually but don’t think we’re not aware of it’s significance. We use it light heartedly to forget that we’re outcasts in a country that’s labeled us a nuisance. The amount of prejudice and racism I’ve experience in my short life could last me a lifetime. So fuck everyone who thinks African Americans “just shouldn’t say it” if we don’t to hear other say it too. Fuck your logic, fuck your shitty excuse to justify your insecurities and lack of respect, and fuck your ignorance…Nigga.
Conservatism as policy is a failure. #abstinence
False rape accusations are an anomaly.
True rape accusations are a norm.
You’re, quite literally, more likely to be killed by a comet than falsely accused of rape.
Re-blog now, read later.
"Because 1 in 33 men will be raped in his lifetime, men are 82,000x more likely to be raped than falsely accused of rape. It seems many of us would do well to pay more attention to how rape culture affects us all than be paranoid about false accusers.”
