things mainstream media wants you to report: crimes against private property

No.

When Stuyvesant says that women’s dress and bodies are distraction in a learning environment, for example, what they’re really saying is that they’re distracting to male students. The default student we are concerned about - the student whose learning we want to ensure is protected - is male. Never mind how “distracting” it is to be pulled from class, humiliated, and made to change outfits - publicly degrading young women is small price to pay to make sure that a boy doesn’t have to suffer through the momentary distraction of glancing at a girl’s legs. When this dentist in Iowa can fire his assistant for turning him on - even though she’s done absolutely nothing wrong - the message again is that it’s men’s ability to work that’s important.



And when rape victims are blamed for the crime committed against them, the message is the same: This is something that happened to the perpetrator, who was driven to assault by a skirt, or a date, or the oh-so-sexy invitation of being passed out drunk. Women have infringed on their right to exist without being turned on. (Ta-Nehisi Coates describes this centering of male sexual vulnerability quite well.) Our very presence is a disruption of the male status quo.

dear caretakers of children: stop telling kids “I don’t care who started it!”. you’re teaching children to ignore unequal power balances. that leads to legitimate belief in things like reverse racism, misandry, heterophobia, etc. you’re teaching children that it’s wrong to retaliate when they are wronged. “who started it” is very, very relevant.

THANK YOU

the-unpopular-opinions:

My unpopular opinion is that gun piercing is not an acceptable piercing technique.
Among the general population, whether it’s due to ignorance or just plain stupidity, bluntly shoving jewelry through a person’s ear is completely fine.
I understand the attraction of gun piercing. It seems pretty simple, it can be done at shopping malls, and (because people view modded people as “scary”) it doesn’t involve going to piercing/tattoo parlor. I get it.
People who work at Claire’s/Icing, Piercing Pagoda and shops similar are not trained in body modification. They don’t even offer proper aftercare advice.
Gun piercing is horribly damaging to soft tissue and cartilage.
Here’s why needle piercing is preferable
Here’s more info why going to a place like Claire’s is a bad idea
If you’re scared of going a “scary” shop, here’s a link to find you a member of the APP; they’re not mean or scary I promise.
tl;dr: Don’t let yourself/your children get gunned. It’s not safe, it’s not healthy, and it’s done by someone who has little to no knowledge of body modification. 
Please don’t butcher yourself, you’re worth more than a mall piercing.

This shouldn’t be “unpopular” it should just be common sense. I think places like Claire’s are so popular with parents because they don’t care how old the baby/child is whereas most reputable, professional pierces will only do kids that are old enough to want and consent to have their ears pierced.
Something about ethics?

^Daaaaaaaaamn

I can’t believe that it’s allowable to have such a RACIST and CONDESCENDING news report. I already knew CNN was a joke and never liked their reporting but this really is disgusting. I’ve been living in New Zealand for 5 years now, the Maori culture here is pervasive, rich and beautiful and this whole report ignores that, pokes fun at it and is highly disrespectful. 

Please sign the petition for CNN to issue a formal apology. 

This is obscenely ignorant of other cultures

JESUS FUCKING CHRIST.  Really?  That woman who reported it — I’m not even bothering to look up her name because frankly, she doesn’t deserve that — is a fucking irritant.  Any time I’ve seen her on CNN in the past, it’s a grating, irritating report that she has.  This?  This is fucking racist and xenophobic.  

The mating dance of the Emu?  Fuck your fucking face, you asshole.  CNN has steadily been turning into FoxNews in the last decade, if you ask me.  This just proves it.

Wow, I would like to say that I’m speechless, but I’m not.  Actually, I’ve got quite a bit to say on this.  First and foremost, this is a classic example of racism, and it sounds like it came from a Victorian text rather than a modern day news report.  Their blatant and casual denigration of various native cultures while acting as though uptight suit-and-tie wearing white people is the norm is offensive on so many levels.  So is the disregard of the native greetings.  When people meet with the President in the White House or the royal family in London, aren’t they expected to shake hands respectfully, because that is the custom in the host country?  What the hell is so different about expecting Western diplomats & leaders to observe the same level of respect in other host countries?  Perhaps the only reason these forms of greeting are not even more popular is because of the brutal colonization of Western powers that had done their best over the span of hundreds of years to stamp them out and degrade them—or reduce them to humor like we see here.  Another thing that I noticed in this report was their focus on the semi-nudity of native peoples.  Don’t even get me started on the sort of Orientalist bullshit that is indicative of.  But seriously, I am very offended by this.  Like I said, it seems like something that would have been written at the heyday of imperialism, not 2014 for fucks sake.

A comment from Wiremu Shepherd who was actually involved in the performance above:

"I am of Maori and Polynesian descent. I am a member of the Royal New Zealand Air Force and I was involved in performing the haka powhiri for the royals. This news report was infuriating to watch.

The warrior (or kaiwero) pictured is a Warrant Officer who is in charge of bicultural matters within our air force. He is also one of the most intelligent, articulate, caring, humble people I know. He is fluent in te reo maori (the maori language) and knows our culture inside and out. His tattoos symbolise his genealogy both past and present, and are the result of many months of research. He is very proud of them. And I am sick to death with all the ignorant remarks and racist comments surrounding these pictures.

I am proud of my culture and this reporter just shat all over it. Everyone signing this petition has already listed various reasons why she should apologise so I won’t repeat them. But my message to Ms. Jeanne Moos is this. Fuck you bitch. Uppercut yourself and do some research before you decide to insult an entire race.”

“The scene with Black Widow yelling to people to get out of the way as Winter Soldier follows her through the streets really made me think that. I know everyone complained about the loss of life in Man of Steel and here was the non-superpowered Natasha actively trying to get people out of the way of the big bad. The audience expects that of Captain America but even the most morally dubious good guy is more thoughtful than Superman was in MOS”

From ONTD. I think this speaks volumes about how I feel about the DCU at the moment.  (via 1critic)

I whispered ‘all those people' several times in this movie but it was never because the people were being harmed and the narrative didn't care. The narrative cared about those ordinary people, a lot.

And once again, Nat is scared of an opponent that she doesn’t think she can beat, but she’s still aware of what’s going on around her and she’s trying to help people.

Earth Day / ərTH dā / 
(n.) an annual day set aside for a bunch of otherwise apathetic humans to regurgitate “green” slogans like “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle!” and pat themselves on the back for being such good little environmentalists, while continuing to consume factory farmed animal products and consequentially sustain the #1 known source of greenhouse gas emissions, thus worsening global climate change, while all the vegans internally scream.

I’m SO angry I can barely speak.

TWICE Game of Thrones has taken consensual sex scene and turned them into rape scenes.

First with Daenerys. Khal Drogo doesn’t touch her in the books until she says, “YES.” But nope, in the show he just does whatever he wants with her! And that’s why her devotion to him in the show seems so off-tilt. She fell in love with her rapist on the show. That’s not the sun-and-stars we see in the books. The Khal Drogo in the books respected Dany. 

And then in the books, Cersei clearly WANTED to hook up with Jaime in the sept, she was the one goading him on and she said, “YES,” only like 50 million times. And yet, in this episode, she’s saying, “NO,” a million times, struggling, clearly fighting Jaime off and he rapes her. 

AND THIS DOESN’T FIT. IT’S NOT OKAY. IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE. KHAL DROGO RAPING DANY COMPLETELY MAKES THEIR RELATIONSHIP ON THE SHOW TOTAL NONSENSE. JAIME LANNISTER—AS ARROGANT AS HE IS—IS NOT THE KIND OF MAN WHO WOULD EVER RAPE A WOMAN IN THE BOOKS. HE CLEARLY EVEN WARNS BRIENNE IN THE BOOKS TO BE CAREFUL NOT TO GET RAPED BY ANYONE BECAUSE HE’S WORRIED ABOUT HER. 

THIS is rape culture. When a TV show takes consensual sex scenes and turns them into rape and expects us to accept it like it’s romantic or “hot” when it’s disgusting and wrong and stomach-churning
