nasa i know of at least 2 exploded spaceships that beg to differ
Well, you know…shit.
why would you pay someone for 26-51 weeks for doing nothing
you have a very, very odd definition of “doing nothing”.
Living as a woman in the USA in a nutshell:
- If you don’t have sex, you’re a prude and a bitch.
- If you have sex outside of marriage and use birth control to avoid getting pregnant, you’re a slut (whether you’ve had sex twice every day or twice in a year).
- If you have sex outside of marriage, but don’t use protection and get pregnant, you’re a slut AND you’re stupid
- If you’re single and get an abortion because you can’t afford to take time off work to push a baby the size of a melon out of your cooch, you’re a slut, stupid, AND a murderer.
- If you’re single but don’t get an abortion, but need extra governmental help to assist in raising your child you were pressured to keep because of someone else’s moral code, you’re a slut, stupid, a leech on the back of society, AND shit out of luck.
AND THE HOOOOME OF THEEEEE BRAAAAAVE
And if you’re married and have a baby, apparently raising that child is “doing nothing” and you don’t deserve to be paid maternity leave but if you don’t want to have children with your spouse or can’t have children, you “aren’t doing your duty as a wife”/”aren’t a real woman”
like nah fuck outta here.
You really can’t fucking win with some people
reasons to not have a two-year hiatus for your tv show: fans will have a lot of time to realize the problematic things about the show and will be disillusioned when it finally airs again
The details for why this is consider “a-okay” are really disgusting. Time to take action and make some noise, folks. This is a serious and dangerous issue.
(I first came across this article on facebook, when guys I know were posting it and high-fiving each other about it)
I believe the top comment on this article sums up my thoughts quite well:
"If it’s legal for him to take an upskirt shot, I fully expect it to be legal when I bash his head in for it."
That’s what is so terrifying about this. Imagine if a woman did fight back by pushing a man away from her, or knocking the camera out of his hand, shattering it on the ground. She would probably face jail time or have to pay a huge settlement, because she defended herself against a man who was “legally” taking upskirt photos of her. It’s repulsive and outrageous.
This is a huge slap in the face to women, because it’s telling us that it’s legal to violate us, and that we just need to sit there and take it.
If someone tried doing this to a man in public, like trying to take a picture up his cargo shorts or because his fly was open, there would be jail time and a precedent for punishing this behavior would be set.
Let me be clear: the reason it wasn’t is because women are not considered full human beings, we are considered public property ESPECIALLY when we leave our homes.

In a dystopian future 35 years after an ecological WWIII has torn the world apart, East African survivors of the devastation remain locked away in contained communities, but a young woman in possession of a germinating seed struggles against the governing council to bring the plant to Earth’s ruined surface.
The main character is a museum curator in the future and also yes I would like see this now please
A whole generation of little girls are about to be told that the way they look is valid and that they can be the hero. The new Annie is kind of a big deal you guys!
I feel badly that I didn’t really realize how bad the situation was until I was showing at an Anime Con a number of years ago and a mother came up and bought all the Zap! stuff I had of Holly, Callisto, and Europa (all female characters of color) and I asked if her daughter was a fan and she said “No, but I think she will like these.” It hit me hard that a little black girl who likes anime and cartoons doesn’t have a lot of characters who look like her to relate to. UGH. What are we doing, society? It hurts my feelings for these kids to just type up that story.
I have to admit I teared up a bit looking at the trailer. It’s really something special. :)
