All this from a woman with enough plastic in her face to recycle into a park bench. I’m not sure where they’re going to bury her; she’s going to take forever to decompose. Aside from all the prosthetics, there’s the formaldehyde to worry about. Plus, I hear spite is a wonderful preservative. (There you go, Joan, How’s your medicine taste?)

My heart goes out to Joan Rivers’ family for their loss…but this woman made a legacy of insulting and belittling others. She was unapologetic about the constant racist and sexist slurs she splashed all over Twitter and television. Whatever positive contributions she might have made are far outweighed by her piss-poor attitude toward other human beings.

And calling it “comedy” doesn’t excuse it.

Joan Rivers is not a feminist icon. Joan Rivers is a bitter, disrespectful person who took every opportunity to publicly tear others down and didn’t care about what feminism actually means: respect and support and equality for ALL women, full stop.

Rest In Peace, hag.

Again, i want to emphasize that I’m very sorry for her friends and family currently grieving.

But even when I first saw the headlines for her death, the first thing I thought, “wasn’t that the woman who constantly insulted people for how they dressed?” 

While it’s not a sin, this woman sure was terrible. (And no, I don’t feel that terrible about saying it this close to her death. I don’t want people like this being glorified just because they die.)

While sometimes I enjoyed her comedy, She. not the best of peopl

Deconstructing Masculinity & Manhood with Michael Kimmel @ Dartmouth College

YAAAAEEESSSSSSS

You know what I like, and feel is so important? That he doesn’t say “Men thinks those are THEIR positions”. He says “We think those are OUR positions.”

As a male feminist, he still doesn’t exclude himself from the group of men.

Damn.

Well said.

Yes. This all t

#can you imagine if we left these 4 guys alone in the top floor of stark tower for like a month #or even just a week #SHIT WOULD GET DONE #we’d probably have interstellar travel in 3 days

i’m not a science expert. i’m not even a science novice. but that’s so interesting that these four would come up with interstellar travel when none of the 4 above are qualified as far as we know? reed richards in the mcu is just listed as a physicist, peter parker could only be linked with engineering + genetics, tony’s engineering, bruce banner is physicist in the 616 but i believe just radiology in the mcu.

know who IS an astrophysicist though?

know who has actually manipulated travel between realms?

HP Goblet of Fire Headcanon: Beauxbatons was primarily a Muslim wizarding school.

(photo from livesandliesofwizards, which was the first thing I thought of when I ran into this passage while rereading the Harry Potter books)

(and yes I know the horses drink whisky, which is not exactly halal, sshhh)

I hope this is true, because it rally broadens the horizon of culture, a Muslim school in France in HP. 

halftheskymovement:

A feminist group based in Guangzhou, China staged an online protest against the sexual exploitation of women in the workplace, revealing a photograph with a message boldly written in red on a whiteboard behind them: “My vagina does not come free with my labor.” More words were written on the women’s thighs, reiterating: “Not freebies.” 

The campaign was in response to a recent fatal rape case involving a 20-year-old woman at a state-owned company who was asked by her boss to a dinner. She was sexually assaulted by her boss’s friend and died as a result of her injuries.“Don’t ask your staff to provide part-time escort services. Women should only be asked to provide knowledge or technical skills in the workplace, but not other things,” says Ye Haiyan, an advocate of women’s and children’s rights.
