Today my English teacher was acting grumpy and halfway through class she sighed and said “I’m sorry I’m cranky today guys, I just keep thinking about the How I Met Your Mother finale”

Archaeologists and forensic scientists who have examined 25 skeletons unearthed in the Clerkenwell area of London a year ago believe they have uncovered the truth about the nature of the Black Death that ravaged Britain and Europe in the mid-14th century.

Analysis of the bodies and of wills registered in London at the time has cast doubt on “facts” that every schoolchild has learned for decades: that the epidemic was caused by a highly contagious strain spread by the fleas on rats.

Now evidence taken from the human remains found in Charterhouse Square, to the north of the City of London, during excavations carried out as part of the construction of the Crossrail train line, have suggested a different cause: only an airborne infection could have spread so fast and killed so quickly. Read more.

asking for straight pride is like asking for able bodied parking spaces

thats a really good comparison because there are about seventy able bodied parking spaces to one disabled and able bodied people still insist on using the ones that arent theirs

While Johansson’s first Marvel appearance in Iron Man 2 may have relied somewhat upon sex appeal, this was quickly nixed in favor of characterizing her as the most cerebral Avenger. Her most important scenes in The Avengers relied upon her intelligence and skills as a spy, to the extent that she even managed to outwit Loki, the God of Lies. At the end of the movie, she’s the one who closes the portal that let all the aliens into New York. Then in Winter Soldier she’s given second billing to Captain America, a meaty role that showcases a wide-ranging skillset that stretches far beyond just “kicking ass.” At no point during any of these movies does she seduce anyone, by the way.

Sadly, there’s very little sign of this character in the most easily accessible reviews of both The Avengers and Winter Soldier. Judging by the Guardian, WSJ, or New Yorker, Black Widow is more like a blow-up doll with a black belt. By their logic, if she’s wearing a tight outfit, then she must be a sexy ass-kicker, meaning that she must be the token female character, and therefore is little more than eye candy.

With that thought process in mind, it must make perfect sense to relegate Black Widow to a single sniggering comment about her catsuit, because obviously Scarlett Johansson is just there for decoration. And if you’ve read in the New York Times that Black Widow is a token female character, then chances are you’ll have internalized that opinion before you even buy a ticket. The feedback loop of misogynist preconceptions continues on, and in the end, we all lose out.

You don’t have to spend long on Tumblr to see all manner of hypocrisy, but for me, some of the worst of it is those of you who claim to be advocates of feminism, equal rights and demand to be seen and treated as human beings and then you go ahead and talk about male actors as if they exist to fucking please us. That is not feminism, that is misandry.

People complain about the objectification of female celebrities and how men talk about them as if they are sex toys. That they are treated like the only thing they are good for is sexual pleasure. And while you are absolutely right to be outraged that women are objectified to such an extent, I am sick of seeing women, young girls even, talk about male celebrities in the exact same way.

Fucking stop it. How dare you demand to be seen as real people and not give the opposite sex the same basic human decency You CANNOT expect something of someone else and not hold yourself to the same standard.

Could you at LEAST talk about them with a little more respect? How do you expect men to stop doing that to us when you’re doing the same thing to them? Don’t you see how this is a serious problem? It’s fine to say ‘they’re hot' and drool over their dreamy eyes and well-toned bodies, but the language you are using is not okay.

I’m not saying I don’t have a long list of both male and female celebrities that I would sleep with, because heck, I DO. But I’m not about to start talking about them like that’s all they’re good for. They are people. Famous people sure, but still people.

I also feel like there is something very seriously twisted about girls who are barely teenagers saying things like ‘I want him to fuck me ten ways to Sunday' and worse about men old enough to be their grandfathers. Please at least stop and ask yourself ‘am I mentally and emotionally mature enough to recognize if and when I could be allowing myself to be taken advantage of?' because the attitude I am seeing is the gateway to allowing abuse. I'm not saying you shouldn't be attracted to people older than you, but I am saying that if you don’t recognize the danger you need to stop and reevaluate the way you express your opinions.

And don’t you dare tell me men like it, because that is not the fucking point. It’s irreverent that some men enjoy being talked about like that, but it’s the same as assuming women want to be catcalled in the street. Men might find it to be a turn-on to be talked to with such language, but that doesn’t mean they want to be talked about like objects. It’s not okay and it’s not acceptable. I’ve had it up to my eyeballs with people complaining about double standards and then applying their own. You are literally asking to be objectified.

The ONLY time it’s okay to say such graphic things is in a mutually loving and consenting relationship. Please have a little more respect for other people and yourself.

Holy crap

Aussie Builders surprise public with loud empowering statements in new Snickers Australia Ad.

I feel the need to keep talking about this ad, and how it is NOT saying what so many of you seem to think it’s saying. At first it looks great, these guys are saying good things, but they are STILL shouting at women in the street. Not just that but the ad is saying YOU AREN’T YOURSELF WHEN YOU’RE HUNGRY, that these men are not themselves, that saying positive things about women and their rights is not how men should be. Look again. LOOK AGAIN.

No disrespect to anyone who reblogs this, but please I beg of you, think a little harder about this and you’ll see it’s actually saying the OPPOSITE of what you think.
