    This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy. 

    Yeah, the treatment of Meg in Family Guy literally has ZERO context except for misogynistic-based comedic value.

    Do not test Reza Aslan.

    We must train and retain our ability to listen and process critically.

    Nobody told me that @RezaAslan knew how to read.

    (Not read as in books, but read as in reveal your scalp to the world.)

    Because homie read Bill Maher, Don Lemon, Alisyn Camerota, Benjamin Netanyahu, and just about everyone else for points.

    Hair all over the damn floor like it was a barbershop and nobody had a broom.

    He got ALL his kee-kee’s in.

    Watch.

    next time someone tells you Muslim countries oppress women, let them know Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Turkey, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, and Senegal have all had female Presidents or Prime Ministers and 1/3rd of Egypt’s parliament is female but the US has yet to even have a female vice president and can’t say “vagina” when discussing female reproductive rights

    I reckon if more people understood this there would be a lot less victim blaming when it comes to rape.

  • I saw a post where you crossed out the word tribe and said it was racist, but another post you allowed the post to have the word tribe uncrossed out. My question is, I know the word is problematic but when is it okay to use the word? Or is it never?

    angryafricangirlsunited:

    Never use the term “tribe” to describe African ethnic groups. (I forgot to cross the word out, I apologize). It’s a racist, white anthropological term used to degrade us. Here’s an informative post explaining why African ethnic groups should not be called “tribes”. Instead of saying “Yoruba tribe”, just say Yoruba people. Instead of saying “Luba tribe”, just say Luba people.  xx -C

    the best thing about oitnb is that most of the inmates look realistically tired and unkempt and don’t wear makeup and then there’s laverne cox looking like she just walked off the red carpet 100% of the time

  • bisexual activist and queer theory blogger Patrick RichardsFink 

    this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1

    A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes

    A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes

    A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes

    A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes

    A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes

    That’s some bullshit right there.

    Let’s take it a step further. For every hour a white man works, a black woman has to work 86 minutes to earn as much money. 57.6 hours a week compared to the white man’s 40.

    Take it another step further. Assuming a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job, from Thursday 12:45pm through Friday end of business, a white man gets paid for his work, a black woman is, by comparison, working for free.

  • "Whenever I hear the "Women are paid $.78 for the man’s $1" I flip it around.

    Men make $1.22 for every woman’s $1.

    It interests me that even the most common simple measure of gender inequality is firmly based on male-as-normative …"

    you can just tell that Nicki Minaj is the kind of person that when you’re telling a story and everyone else in the group is talking over you, she’s making direct eye contact with you and paying extra attention so that you don’t get discouraged and stop mid-story

    this is actually so true
