whoneedsfeminism:

I need feminism because females students made up the majority of my 12th grade high school classes: math = 82%, chemistry = 77%, physics 80%, english = 82%. But we’re not even close to being equally represented in what we’re learning in school.
The # of pieces of literature we read with a female lead character: 1
The # of female authors we read: 2
The # of women in history we learned about in-depth (in the entire course): 1 (Margaret Thatcher)
# of women we learned about in the sciences and math: the textbooks made some attempt to occasionally mention females in sciences. HOWEVER, they were always placed to the side of the page, out of the main text. 
FEMALES made up the majority  of my classes. 
So why can’t we be equally represented in our own education? WE DESERVE BETTER! <3 
I went to a small school in a rural area in Canada,  so I know that my class stats may be different from others in city schools. However, this is still a problem in our education system!

The young lady that was shot in the head by a police officer is still waiting to be interviewed by the police department
Ferguson Police claimed that 4 to 5 Black males conducted a drive by which resulted in a White woman being shot in the head. (Here, Here, Here)
(they’ve edited the articles to take out the white part and that she was killed hehehe)
Residents knew it was BS. 
Turns out Mya was shot by a police officer. The department forced surgeons to take the bullet out and took the bullet for “Ballistics”
Over a week later, she still has yet to be contacted by the department
Do not let her story go ignored

a lot of people are STILL asking me how Iggy Azalea is racist and homophobic so i’m just going to make a proper post 

in addition to all of this she also calls herself a “slave master” at 0:06 in this video

the amount of notes on this post

learning that iggy is a racist mess is like learning that mayonnaise doesn’t do well when it’s out in the sun.

oh cool, I mean, wasn’t planning on caring about that, but good to remember to just stay away I guess.

i will forever dislike her, I disliked her as soon as I heard her rapping like she’s some bad ass, like no hon, you’re a spoiled little brat that wants to play a role without having to deal with the role’s oppression and systematic inequality. fuck off.

Let’s leave this here.

As these “facts” come out, it doesn’t even matter any more. People don’t care about the truth. They see Black people as thugs deserving of death, nothing will change their mind.
If this even goes to trial, the jury will look just like Trayvon Martin’s (jury of peers my ass).
How can you even have discussions with people who don’t care about facts. These same people profess have morals and their bankrupt.
Darren Wilson could literally say he’s guilty and people would still not believe him and think he had every right to kill Mike Brown.

"You don’t get $321 in fines and fees and 3 warrants per household from an about-average crime rate," he notes. "You get numbers like this from [B.S.] arrests for jaywalking" and what the report calls "low level harassment involving traffic stops, court appearances, high fines, and the threat of jail for failure to pay without a meaningful inquiry into whether an individual has the means to pay."

"I’m a cop. If you don’t want to get hurt, don’t challenge me. Even though it might sound harsh and impolitic, here is the bottom line: if you don’t want to get shot, tased, pepper-sprayed, struck with a baton or thrown to the ground, just do what I tell you. Don’t argue with me, don’t call me names, don’t tell me that I can’t stop you, don’t say I’m a racist pig, don’t threaten that you’ll sue me and take away my badge. Don’t scream at me that you pay my salary, and don’t even think of aggressively walking towards me."

Sunil Dutta, a 17-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department responds to the police actions happening in Ferguson.

Pretty scary that he doesn’t even recognize that this type of police mentality is a problem.

"On Periods: Let’s put this shit to bed right now: Women don’t lose their minds when they have period-related irritability. It doesn’t lower their ability to reason; it lowers their patience and, hence, tolerance for bullshit. If an issue comes up a lot during “that time of the month,” that doesn’t mean she only cares about it once a month; it means she’s bothered by it all the time and lacks the capacity, once a month, to shove it down and bury it beneath six gulps of willful silence."

And when we have our periods our ‘male’ hormone (testosterone) is actually at its highest level…soooooo…

(via a-ghra-geal)

^ not actually true, testosterone peaks when you ovulate (x).  you don’t need testosterone to not tolerate bullshit, either.  passivity is socialized in women, not a result of biology.
