Saving Face (2012), acid attacks on women in Pakistan

Meanwhile, in America, feminists are complaining about how dress codes are oppressive.

You idiots have never experienced oppression, and pray you never do, because this is what it looks like.

As a South Asian American feminist, let me remind everyone that oppression is not a competition.

Just because we fight one type of sexism doesn’t mean we don’t care about other instances of sexism that don’t affect us directly in our day to day lives.

My heart goes out to this woman and the hundreds of other victims like her. I want to educate people about these kinds of incidents. I support organizations that help women like this.

You may think that dress code issues are trivial, but they are related to a larger issue of women’s bodily autonomy, which affects women’s health and safety.

So please, let’s try to bring awareness and bring about change instead of insulting entire groups of people because they are facing issues that are less scary than the one presented.

I’d like to re-emphasize:

*Just because we fight one type of sexism doesn’t mean we don’t care about other instances of sexism that don’t affect us directly in our day to day lives.

10 years ago today, filming began on a brand new series of Doctor Who, starring Christopher Eccleston as the Ninth Doctor and Billie Piper as Rose Tyler!

can I passively aggressively point out the way the shot is set up to make both of them equal including cancelling out the height difference and you really couldn’t tell who was meant to be the main character by looking at this photo? (Because of course they’re both the main character and of equal importance rose tyler Ninth doctor (via pygmy-of-triviality)

Wait, wait, wait, I have an amazing new idea. How about we fix the American school system.

This woman deserves a round of applause and a throne of gold. This is the most realistic & amazing thing for someone to say for this generation of students. I wasn’t able to go to college this year because my parents can’t afford to send me and I had every scholarship, grant, loan known to man and it still wouldn’t work. Finally someone gets it!

Preach!

WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR PEOPLE TO REALIZE THIS?!

SO MANY OTHER COUNTRIES EITHER PAY FOR THEIR POPULATIONS’ EDUCATION OR JUST WRITE OFF THE BILL IF DOESN’T GET PAID FOR.

THE WAY THE AMERICAN EDUCATION SYSTEM WORKS IS BACKWARDS AND MANGLED.

Chris Hardwick talks about censorship of women’s bodies and absolutely nails it.

The bleeping. The bleeping. I just. THEY ARE EXACTLY THE SAME WORDS. 

I love that he knows only one got bleeped.

Sixth grader, Florida resident, and scientist extraordinaire, Lauren Arrington has done pretty well for herself at the ripe old age of twelve. Her science fair project studied lionfish (an invasive species in the ocean around Florida) and where they are able to survive. She determined that lionfish could survive in near-fresh water, which would included some rivers in Florida and would allow the species to invade further upstream and possibly cause further damage to Florida coast marine ecosystems. The results of Arrington’s simple project— where she placed lionfish in tanks of water with salinity levels— were news to marine biologists, who had not considered that lionfish might be able to survive in lower salinity levels than 20 parts per thousand.

Again. Dr. Jud needs to be credited. We have to support our fellow professional biologists who are trying to make a name for themselves. This was originally discovered in 2010 by Dr. Zack Jud. 

See HERE

He’s upset and rightfully so. 

The fact that the little girl is so excited about science is an amazing thing but her parents are being completely unethical. 

It’s a shame that this is happening right before the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists meeting in Chattanooga TN. 

Many thanks to you for alerting us on this issue! Giving scientists credit for their work is incredibly important and we in no way intended to skip over Dr. Jud— we were simply unaware of the previous research based on the article we read. Sorry everybody!

I didn’t understand that reference at first so I looked it up and apparently there were fifty-seven academics who theorized that Shakespeare was gay/bisexual.

Also, sonnet 57 is supposed to be about a guy that Shakespeare was in love with.

The Doctor remarks at one point in this episode that a skull looks like that of a Sycorax. Shakespeare claims he’s using that word, as he likes it. There is a Shakespeare character called Sycorax. #researchpayskids
