self positivity is f*cking great!!! u think ur cool??? then ur cool!!! u think ur cute??? then ur hella cute!!! look at you go. so amazing


Came up with a flag for robosexuality, since it’s probably going to be a century at the most before we do have sentient robots, and people end up having deep relationships of a platonic, romantic, or sexual nature with said robots.
I incorporated the rainbow flag to show all orientations and genders, and the gray and white acknowledge asexuality on both humans’ and robots’ parts as well. Not all robots will be built for or want sexual relations, so I wanted to include the platonic and romantic sides.
Hope you and your followers like!

"Masculinity is a trait, not a gender"

In an effort to both allocate space for and document the existence of masculine women, photographer Meg Allen created a powerful series of portraits for an exhibit at Cafe Gabriela in Oakland, Calif.

Entitled BUTCH, Allen’s series not only represents genderqueer women for a broader, heteronormative audience, but reaffirms butch identity within the queer community at a time when “butch flight,” or gender transitioning, is arguably becoming more and more commonplace. It is, as Allen says on her website, “an homage to the bull-daggers and female husbands before me, and to the young studs, gender queers and bois who continue to bloom into the present.”

Are you fucking kidding me? Did we all just wake up in 1938?

This is actual Nazi shit!! And people wanna act like anti-semitism isn’t still EXTREMELY dangerous!

Holy shit…..

From the USA Today article:

Olga Reznikova, 32, a Jewish resident of Donetsk, told Ynet she never experienced anti-Semitism in the city until she saw this leaflet.
"We don’t know if these notifications were distributed by pro-Russian activists or someone else, but it’s serious that it exists," she said. "The text reminds me of the fascists in 1941," she said referring to the Nazis who occupied Ukraine during World War II.
The Jewish community in Donetsk issued a statement saying the leaflet distribution “smells like a provocation.” The chief rabbi of nearby Dnipropetrovsk, Shmuel Kaminezki said, “Everything must be done to catch them.”
"It’s important for everyone to know its not true," Kaminezki told CNN. "The Jews of Donetsk will not do what the letter says."
[…]
Michael Salberg, director of the international affairs at the New York City-based Anti-Defamation League, said it’s unclear whether the leaflets were issued by the pro-Russian leadership or a splinter group operating within the pro-Russian camp.
But he said the Russian side has used the specter of anti-Semitism in a cynical manner. Russia and its allies in Ukraine have issued multiple stories about the threat posed to Jews by Ukraine’s new pro-Western government in Kiev, Salberg said.
"The message is a message to all the people that is we’re going to exert our power over you," he said. "Jews are the default scapegoat throughout history for despots to send a message to the general public: Don’t step out of line."

Creepy shit.

I want a video game where you play a cartoon character and when you get hurt in those cliche cartoon ways you stay in the form for the rest of the level and you need to get hurt in specific ways to solve puzzles

so like you get a piano dropped on you and you are flat

and you use that to get under and through places

I’d play that.

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 …

bisexual activist and queer theory blogger Patrick RichardsFink (via fliponymous)

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

(via haveyouevercriedwolf)

White people are still the ~standard so that’s not so revolutionary.

(via dykeprivilege)

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.

If you take away anything from this website, please let it be what I bolded ^

(via buxombibliophile)

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.

This is good, but can we please start adding that many disabled people make less than 25 CENTS per hour, completely legally??

I think that’s a pretty fucking important part of intersectionality discussions too…
