"The rate of police killings of black Americans is nearly the same rate of lynchings in the early decades of the 20th century."
Never forget that the Ferguson police left Mike Brown’s body out in the hot summer sun, uncovered for more than 5 hours. Sound familiar? #staywoke #farfromover
With all the heat Anita Sarkeesian gets for her Tropes series, you’d think it was a new topic, but Gene Siskel & Roger Ebert had a discussion on a similar theme when they were talking about the influx of slasher movies on their show in 1980.
34 years later and this is STILL relevant
I used to watch Siskel and Ebert all the time. They had a lot to do with teaching me to appreciate movies - as well as shaping my stance on ethical issues like this.
It saddens me all this time has passed and not much has changed. But I am also thankful they got through to me at such a young age. To me, it’s proof that talking about important issues is worth it. Some of us will eventually get it.
Not much had changed because we have a 90% incumbent rate.
We think we understand reality, but our universe is only one of many. The unknown truths of the way to travel between them has already been discovered, by beings much like us but who’s history is slightly ahead of our own. The negative aspects of such visitations will be irreversible both to our world and to theirs. It will begin with a series of unnatural occurrences. Difficult to notice at first but growing, not unlike a cancer, until a simple fact becomes undeniable only one world will survive and it will either be us or them.
Fringe, Season One
I loved this scene so much. The actors play off this pairing as flirty and adorable in a way the characters really weren’t in the novels IMO.
That said, when she said the line, “Girls see more blood than boys,” my husband was all confused and like, “What, warrior women, she means?”
So I just looked at him and started listing off, “Blood from their periods every month, maybe blood from sex, blood from childbirth, blood from tending and washing the wounded and dead…That’s been true for most of womankind all through history.”
And he got very, very quiet.I’ve reblogged this before, but I’m reblogging again for the commentary because this little exchange is like a wink to the female audience that I really loved and I guarantee you that any woman who saw this would know exactly what she means. There are a pretty big chunk of men in the world who don’t think that “women’s work” or women’s bodies are worth knowing about. Also I think find it really amusing when he tries to pass off his ignorance with, “you’re different, you’re not like other women” and she immediately shuts that down.
