Ferguson Police have dogs and shotguns. The unarmed crowd is raising their hands.
For anyone not following the Mike Brown story on Twitter: a 17 year old black boy named Mike Brown, who was supposed to start college tomorrow, was shot to death in Ferguson, Missouri by police while jaywalking. He was unarmed. He was shot 9 times.
Initial media reports claimed that an 18 year old black man had been shot and killed while fleeing police after shoplifting.
People in the neighborhood, including members of Mike Brown’s family, came out of their homes and began to protest, shouting “no justice, no peace,” and keeping their hands in the air.
Media reports claimed that a violent mob quickly formed around the shooting location shouting “kill the police.”
Spread this. Tell the truth about what happened to this boy. Tell the truth about what is happening NOW. The police and the mainstream media is painting him as a criminal, and his community as a violent mob.
SPREAD THIS. Don’t let them lie.
new aesthetic: surreal pop punk
your shorts are glowing and are made of a material not known to this world. your vans die and regenerate every night. every band does covers of gregorian chants. your bangs extend into infinity.
fall out void
abandon your mortal form and ascend to a higher plane! at the disco
This is rad
we need a superhero like one of these ladies
maybe another hawkeye??
i didn’t even notice until halfway down the post when i read the “being the teacher with the robot leg” sign that i realized everyone is missing a limb. Biomedical Engineers are really outdoing themselves and it’s both fantastic and sometimes even glamorous.
impossible is nothing
that tattoo looking one is so badass
I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again -
Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone.
Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.
If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time.
And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office.”
Will always reblog this.

In addition to essentially inventing the computer, Alan Turing also broke the German Enigma Code during World War II which paved the way for the D-Day invasion. The man was a hyper-genius. I’ve read descriptions of his work by mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose. He’s been a hero of mine ever since.
The level of thought required to come up with the stuff he came up with is totally beyond my comprehension. I actually did not even know about his orientation until much later. He was prosecuted and ordered to undergo chemical castration. Soon thereafter, he committed suicide by eating a cyanide-laced apple.
The government forced him to take estrogen as a punishment (or “cure”?). He began to develop breasts and other side effects.
He committed suicide by biting into a cyanide laced apple. This is supposedly the inspiration for the name/logo of Apple computers.
and old Apple computers
the apple was a rainbow
Reblogging again because more people need to know about Turing dammit.
DEAR MEN WHO WANT TO SUPPORT OR BE AN ALLY TO THE FEMINIST MOVEMENT,
WATCH THIS FUCKING VIDEO.
THIS IS HOW YOU SHOULD BEHAVE.
DO NOT DIRECT YOUR ATTENTION, WORDS, OR VITRIOL TOWARD WOMEN. THAT MEANS DO NOT LECTURE WOMEN WHO ARE ALREADY FEMINISTS ABOUT FEMINISM, BECAUSE WE DO NOT CARE, AND DO NOT LECTURE WOMEN WHO ARE NOT FEMINISTS ABOUT FEMINISM, BECAUSE THAT’S NOT YOUR FUCKING PLACE.
IF YOU WANT TO HELP WOMEN, ACT LIKE THIS GUY. CALL OUT OTHER MEN WHEN THEY ARE BEING SHITTY TO WOMEN. CALL OUT BULLSHIT MALE BEHAVIOR AND DERAILING, CALL OUT MISOGYNY, CALL OUT VICTIM BLAMING AND RAPE CULTURE.
WOMEN DO NOT NEED YOU TO TELL THEM ABOUT THEIR OPPRESSION AND TALKING TO WOMEN ABOUT FEMINISM OR TRYING TO INVADE FEMINIST SPACES IS LIKE WALKING INTO A MEETING FOR NATIVE SPEAKERS OF A LANGUAGE AND TRYING TO CORRECT THE PARTICIPANTS ON THEIR GRAMMAR BASED ON YOUR INTRO 101 CLASS.
TALK TO MEN. USE YOUR MALE PRIVILEGE AND THE FACT THAT MISOGYNISTS ONLY RESPECT AND LISTEN TO OTHER MEN TO TRY AND HAMMER SOME OF THIS SHIT INTO THEIR HEADS.
WE APPRECIATE THAT YOU WANT TO HELP. YOUR HELP WILL ONLY BE HELPFUL IF YOU STAY IN YOUR LANE.
