So the wife of Ferguson police chief says community is “feral”. 
A wild cracker appears.

Fuck this bitch

I am so fucking ashamed and my mind is boiling from the ignorance, these people are so brain-washed by their own entitlement I can’t even fucking deal.

And this is fucking racism, and I don’t understand how white people can’t tell the difference. She is racist, she has these views and is married to the chief of police, an organization that can *clearly* get away with murdering black children because they deem us as animals. She has power and clout behind those words, and so do the millions of other racists that murder, attack, abuse, and hate black people. If a black person calls you a cracker or doesn’t trust you, there is no power there. There isn’t generations of brain washing and social norms that have been ingrained in our society, white people see a white person and they are another human, white people see a black person, and they see an animal, wild livestock that needs to be culled, and we have to fight for our humanity, to prove constantly we are human, and how the fuck can we prove our humanity to a group of humans that have devolved into monsters, and see that now as human simply because the skin is white, disassociating themselves from their horrible inexcusable actions.

it’s funny how if you’re not straight, the assumption is always that you like men

like

bisexual male: YOU’RE SECRETLY JUST GAY AND WANT TO HAVE SEX WITH MEN

bisexual female: YOU’RE JUST FAKING IT FOR MALE ATTENTION

gay male: YOU’RE ONLY GAY BECAUSE YOU DIDN’T HAVE A GOOD MALE ROLE MODEL IN YOUR LIFE

gay female: YOU’RE ONLY A LESBIAN BECAUSE YOU WERE HURT BY MEN IN THE PAST AND NOW YOU HATE THEM

like did it occur to you at any point that it’s not always about men

Meet Jedidah Isler

She is the first black woman to earn a PhD in astronomy from Yale University.

As much as she loves astrophysics, Isler is very aware of the barriers that still remain for young women of color going into science. “It’s unfortunately an as-yet-unresolved part of the experience,” she says. She works to lower those barriers, and also to improve the atmosphere for women of color once they become scientists, noting that “they often face unique barriers as a result of their position at the intersection of race and gender, not to mention class, socioeconomic status and potentially a number of other identities.”

While Isler recounts instances of overt racial and gender discrimination that are jaw-dropping, she says more subtle things happen more often. Isler works with the American Astronomical Society’s commission on the status of minorities in astronomy.

She also believes that while things will improve as more women of color enter the sciences, institutions must lead the way toward creating positive environments for diverse student populations. That is why she is active in directly engaging young women of color: for example participating in a career exploration panel on behalf of the Women’s Commission out of the City of Syracuse Mayor’s Office, meeting with high-achieving middle-school girls. She is also on the board of trustees at the Museum of Science and Technology (MOST).

“Whether I like it or not, I’m one of only a few women of color in this position,” she says. “Addressing these larger issues of access to education and career exploration are just as important as the astrophysical work that I do.”

I honestly think people forget that the church and state are supposed to be separate. Give me one non-religious reason against same sex marriage. One non-religious reason against stem cell research. One non-religious reason against safe abortions. Go ahead.

I’ve been saying this for YEARS.

i dedicate this comic to the teacher who pulled me out of class in middle school to tell me my bra strap was showing and that i needed to get a jacket to cover it up so that i didnt distract the boys

dedicated to all teachers, school administrators, parents, dudes, dudettes, random ass strangers, politicians and dogs who think that is a woman’s duty to ensure that men aren’t ‘distracted’
