On being asked if she is a feminist (in light of stars such as Shailene Woodley, Lady Gaga, and Kelly Clarkson rejecting the label): “I don’t think they really understood what feminism is. It’s a right. Feminism, to me, is standing up for everything that someone else has already done for you. My mom has overcome so much in her life. She makes me want to stand up for myself. Stand up to the studio heads who try to tell me that I can’t have blonde hair; they want brown hair. Or I need bigger boobs, or I need to work out. Or I’m too skinny, so, like, ‘Eat a cheeseburger.’ I stand up for myself every day of my life. I grew up in a family of four boys. I’m, like, a born feminist. I’ve been a feminist since I was four years old.” - Chloe Grace Moretz

“Why do police have quotas? If a doctor went around intentionally sneezing on people to get more patients, that would be seen as a travesty to their profession. But police, can sit around and wait for someone to turn on a red light or commit other mundane ‘offenses’ because they have quotas to meet. Quotas are all the proof we need that policing is not a public service vocation; it’s a business and a subsidiary of Wall Street.”

Ok so we all know how badass Gamora is but can we also talk about how kind she is?

Can we talk about a woman who has endured terrible abuse for the vast majority of her life, who still wants to save a world that has taken so much from her?

This is terrifying.

this is so fucking disgusting smh

My god I have never seen something so terrifying in my entire life

this is so disgusting stop stop stop why would you fucking do that i am so fucking angry so fucking angry

what the fuck?

LEGIT GOOSEBUMPS THIS IS WILDDDDDD

Wtf bruh

I’m shaking right now like this is so fucked up

Why I just could never like pale people, they call us animals but they truly are…

the whites are getting progressively worse…fuck them tbh

Slim…it’s gettin’ real bad out here. REAL bad.

this is terrifying to me could you imagine what the kids in the car felt? like this is out of hand

how tf us this even legal?

This happened to me when I was… 19, I think… It’s fucking terrifying even for my lily white ass, I can’t fathom it in the climate POC live in in this country.

But the sad thing is… Nothing the officer did was illegal. 

At NO POINT, or for ANY REASON is any US citizen EVER entitled to refuse if an officer “asks” you to step out of your car.

They make it sound like a request, but it is an order, one that is supported by the supreme court. 
[Here’s a link from a defense attorney explaining this]

By refusing to step out of the vehicle when “asked” it’s the passenger who is actually breaking the law.

This family will likely get no sympathy if they take this to court, and the officers will be praised for acting within the “scope of their duties”.

Sad… Fucking sad…

Sexism 60’s

jesus???????????????

What the fuck was wrong with men in the 60’s?

advertising is important as it’s the historian’s best resource for identifying the values of an era. but yeah, these were fucked. the 60s was generally as fucked as the 50s. people forget that. 

It literally says ‘men are better than women’ in bold type, what the fuck. I knew this was a thing, but that is a lack of subtlety I couldn’t have written into a spoof…

This is the generation that spawned most of our parents… People our parents’ age run Washington. Starting to make sense?

When you look to the past, the struggles of the present become a great deal more clear.

One would assume that scientists, who are trained to think objectively, are completely immune to gender discrimination. However, a recent Yale study by Corinne Moss-Racusin and colleagues suggests otherwise.
The researchers created a fictional student and sent out the student’s application to science professors at top, research-intensive universities in the United States. The professors were asked to evaluate how competent this student was, how likely they would be to hire the student, how much they would pay this student, and how willing they would be to mentor the student. All of the applications sent out were identical, except for the fact that half were for a male applicant, John, and half were for a female applicant, Jennifer. Results showed that, with statistical significance, both male and female faculty at these institutions were biased towards male students over female students.
Data from the study shows that on average, science faculty was willing to pay the male applicant about $4,000 more per year. source

"The gender gap doesn’t exist" 
"We don’t need feminism" 
"Maybe he just worked harder"
"*any MRA bullshit*"

I had to read this study for class. It is thorough as fuck.


This was brought to light during the ‘Women in Chemistry’ symposium at my former institution and it really is a problem
