it must be really fucking great to not have to care about social issues. it must be fantastic to be able to walk down the street confident in the knowledge that no one will try to force you to interact with them, and get angry or even violent when you don’t want to. it must be brilliant to be a straight nerd guy whose biggest consent-based worry is whether or not those damn feminists are going to hassle him for supporting his favourite my little pony rape joke comic. it must be phenomenal to be able to make fun of trans identities because you’ve never had someone you cared about look you in the eye and tell you that you’re not what you know that you are. it must be absolutely astounding to be able to laugh at all the molestation humour in anime because you’re not a woman so you’re not in constant fear of that character being you, of it being you who is shocked and horrified and made into a big joke. it must be amazing to be able to walk into a job interview and know that you weren’t judged for the body you were born into. ignorance is bliss. ignorance is a fucking five star yacht and millions of us are struggling and drowning in the sea around it. and every now and again a guy pokes his head over the side and says “what are you crying out for? the weather is great”
this is what i’m talking about
guy who posted this: you can like beyonce without being a misogynist thanks
screaming “when will people learn not to set women in the media up against each other for no reason”
so why is tumblr trying to pit female pop musicians against each other just because beyonce came out with an album
for someplace that supposedly prides itself on being educated about social issues that just screams “girl hate” to me
where’s the fuckin ice
I still believe Iceland and Greenland sat down in a meeting one day and it started with
"You know what’ll piss people off"
Actually, it was the Vikings. They discovered both Iceland and Greenland, and when they realized the weather, named them opposites to confuse their enemies. So the enemies would go to Greenland, expecting it to be all pretty and green and good for farming, but it was all ice. Vice versa for Iceland.
mah peeps gotchu
if you were invisible, would you still be able to see with your eyes closed??
THIS FUCKING TEXT POST JUST STARTED THE BIGGEST DEBATE IN MY MATHS CLASS BECAUSE I READ IT OUT LOUD AND WE HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT A) YES YOU WOULD BE ABLE TO SEE IN THEORY BUT B) YOU WOULDN’T BE TO SEE BECAUSE THE LIGHT WOULD PASS THROUGH YOU AND THEREFORE PASS THROUGH YOUR RETINA.
OH MY GOD
RELEASE US - a short film on police brutality
Published on Oct 28, 2013
500 innocent Americans are murdered by police every year (USDOJ). 5,000 since 9/11, equal to the number of US soldiers lost in Iraq.
In 1994 the US Government passed a law authorizing the Pentagon to donate surplus Cold War era military equipment to local police departments.
In the 20 years since, weaponry designed for use on a foreign battlefield, has been handed over for use on American streets…against American citizens.
The “War on Drugs” and the “War on Terror” replaced the Cold War with billions in funding and dozens of laws geared towards this new “war” against its own citizens.
This militarization of the police force has created what is being called an “epidemic of police brutality” sweeping the nation.
According to the video a black man is killed once every 28 hours by police.
ALL COPS ARE BASTARDS
