Painfully Awkward...

Reasons why I’m excited for “Dear White People:”

  • Black actors portraying 3-dimensional characters
  • Honest social commentary
  • Targeted to the college age demographic
  • Thorough exploration of the various forms of racism in America
  • Tessa Thompson’s voice and Tyler William’s afro wig

Reasons why I’m not excited for “Dear White People:”

  • White people calling it racist
  • Mainstream media agreeing with the white people calling it racist

11 simple rules for being a male feminist

Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Aziz Ansari. John Legend.

These are a few of many male celebrities who have recently come out as feminists. Emma Watson’s high-profile #HeForShe campaign and the White House’s launch of #ItsOnUs against sexual violence have encouraged many more men to think critically about feminism. More importantly, about why it’s necessary to affirm and practice gender equality, given the many ways institutional sexism and the patriarchy have created environments where conventionally white, masculine, cisgender men have power and privilege. 

For men who wish to truly engage in the struggle for gender equality, here are some ways they can help help while remaining cognizant of how their identities may limit their understanding of women’s struggles.

1. Allow women to lead the way | Follow micdotcom

Ok, no.

Feminism is NOT a support group for women. Feminism is for EVERYONE THAT’S THE FUCKING POINT!

All this is saying is that men have to be quietly sitting in the sidelines and encouraging other men to do the same. If you are a male that identifies as a feminist then you should be just as loud as the women out there advocating for gender equality whether it’s for men or women. 

I see what this is trying to do, but being a male feminist doesn’t make you an ally it makes you a feminist and that means you get to do EVERYTHING that other female feminist do. That means you get to go to voice your opinion on gender inequality issues regarding women, and lead the charge. 

Being a male feminist does not mean you sit back and let women lead, it’s being OK with women leading, and it’s not picking a woman over a man in professional settings, it’s being unbiased and giving candidates of all genders the same opportunity.

THIS IS HURTING FEMINISM AND MEN SHOULD NOT BE FOLLOWING THESE “RULES”

They are not all wrong, but most of them are telling men to be quiet and only speak up when women aren’t around to speak up, which is the opposite of what we want. If anything this is insulting to women like “let them have their space and get over their problems and you can just keep an eye in case they mess up and step in to fix it, but you want to make them feel like they are doing it themselves.”

This is NOT feminist.

A peanut in the middle of our galaxy


It turns out that the center of our galaxy resembles the shape of a peanut according to new research.  UCLA’s R. Michael Rich is looking to map this dense inner region of the Milky Way. It can be thought of as a big metropolitan area with “stellar suburbs” of stars at the edges that can be anywhere from a few million years old to some 12 billion years old.

The way he plans to do this is to use images taken from a 500 megapixel camera - To put that in another way, an image taken from this camera would need 250 computer screens to view. So a supercomputer will then parse through that data and reduce the images for viewing.

Rich hopes to use this study to better understand how our galaxy has formed and evolved over time.

I found these gifs I made a while back for a site that’s not running anymore, so I thought I’d post them here. It’s a description of psychiatric symptoms and states of mind using a pink box and some other stuff.

"Yes, there are going to be men who realize they have been abusers, harassers, and rapists. That is not going to be easy for them to hear. Yes, men are going to realize that the language that is a part of their everyday lives is degrading and violent. It will not be easy change their tongues. Yes, men are going to realize that the economic, political, and social clout they enjoy is the result of thousands of years of repressive laws and customs aimed at ensuring their dominance, and much of that has to do with causing physical harm to women to secure their silence. And that is going to be really, really uncomfortable to hear. The truth often is."

A man who thinks that growing a beard is some sort of special super-power that makes him especially skilled, but thinks that you being an actual human being and having things in your life that aren’t all to his liking is “your shit” that he has to deal with is a man you sure as fuck don’t want to be with.
I mean, seriously, people. Beards are cool and all, but it’s not like it takes a mystic power to grow one. It takes not shaving, which is more like laziness than patience.

a restaurant in my hometown got a review that said the servers should “show some skin” so the owner added a potato skin special to the menu and all the proceeds from the special go to the west virginia foundation for rape information services (x)

That’s exactly the appropriate response.
