It’s like the dynamics of racism in America summed up in three short youtube comments.

“Above anything else, stay true to yourself. Whether that means for you that you like to have blue hair, or you don’t like to drink, or you are attracted to the same sex, or you want to remove yourself from Facebook, or you’ve got 3 different kids from 3 different dads but you know you’re a really good mom, or you cry for a week because your turtle died. Whatever your truth is, stay true to yourself. But be a good person while you’re at it.”
Gillian Anderson’s advice for young feminists. (via foxsmulders)

I just want y’all to remember that a few days ago a visibly armed white man was pointing a gun at children in a park in broad daylight. He was calmly talked down and brought in to custody. TJ Lane shot up his school, was taken to trial peacefully, sentenced, escaped, and peacefully captured again. Or the white man who under the influence of some drug, attacked 3 officers in the police station, disarmed one and fired a shot. He wasn’t even tased. 

Let’s compare that with the fact that, Mike Brown was shot 6 times while surrendering. Vonderrick Myer was armed with a fucking sandwich and shot at 16 times. Levar Jones was stopped for a seat belt violation and got shot at 4 times for retrieving the ID he was ordered to show. John Crawford III was shot for being armed with an airsoft gun, in Wal Mart, where they sell airsoft guns!

Feminism as always been about liberating women from the patriarchy. It’s a revolution, it’s not about having the same rights that men have. I don’t want to have the same rights as they do, i don’t want to be able to rape without being put in jail, i don’t want to be the head of a big company that gain money by using slaves. i want to be liberated from a world that is ruled by men and make something new, something better.

Let’s be honest everyone would rather watch a Black Widow movie than antman

I’d rather watch Black Widow file her taxes than an Ant Man movie

Well you have to admit her work-related expenses would tell some pretty interesting stories all by themselves

Black Widow orders towels online: the movie

Black Widow reorganizes her sock drawer: the movie

Black Widow cleans her gutters: the movie

Still more exciting than Ant Man

I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.

You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.

Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.

A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.

On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.

So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.

As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.

Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.

First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.

Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.

You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.

If you talk about the wage gap in America and only mention race and gender but not disability then you are ignoring a huge problem. Disabled people are legally allowed to be paid under minimum wage.

Charts from OKCupid, showing how straight women and men rate each other based on ages. For women, the men they find most attractive are roughly their own age. For men, the women they find most attractive are roughly the same age - 20 to 23 - regardless of the age of the man. (538)

Daily reminder that men are gross.
