"If more girls wanted to be scientists, there would be more female scientists"

*takes a deep breath* WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY THAT ACTIVELY DISCOURAGES FEMALE INTELLIGENCE BY PAINTING IT AS A NON FEMININE TRAIT AND SETS UP MALES TO BE IN POSITIONS OF ACADEMIC SUPERIORITY DESPITE THERE BEING NO CORRELATION BETWEEN GENDER AND ACADEMIC ABILITY thank you for your time

being friendly with a boy you aren’t romantically/physically attracted to and him developing feelings for you isn’t your fault, nor does it mean you were “leading him on”. you are under no obligation to date him.

It’s breast cancer awareness month and that means it’s time for a round-up of SocImages’ interrogation of breast cancer awareness month!

Our favorite finding? That the color pink actually makes women take breast cancer LESS seriously. Oops. That one’s first…

"There can be a difference between being a feminist who is also white and being a White Feminist (TM). The first kind, who is all about intersectionality and knowing she has white privilege, we’re cool with. The second kind, who thinks it’s okay to compare the white woman’s burden to things like slavery and who thinks it’s her mission to save brown women from brown men, not at all."

Vocativ has released an excellent interactive graphic mapping trans rights across the country. Visibility and societal acceptance are progressing, but there is so much left to do. (via Vocativ

"I wouldn’t want a man to say, ‘I can have a writers’ room full of men and we can write women just fine. I can’t say that I can create a show about a trans woman and not have a trans woman writing for me. It’s absolutely necessary, and it’s gonna change the show."

Jill Soloway on hiring a trans writer for season 2 of ‘Transparent’

It is politically and culturally important that marginalized people speak for themselves.

This about sums it up.

This just goes to show that misogyny is real. So real.

After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.

BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?

BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?

The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.

This. Is. Not. OK.

That comment on how videogames don’t cause school shootings?

Well, now. See that? That’s over 15 years work, of advocacy, ruined.

Everything gaming advocacy tried to assert, that videogames were art, that violence can be separated from the medium… all now rings hollow.

How does it feel to know that this may very well be #gamergate’s most lasting and bitter fruit?
