you know how when you go to a concert or show of some sort and the person on stage is like “HOW’S EVERYONE DOING TONIGHT?!?!?!?!” and the audience cheers back? why? you’re not answering the question, you’re just yelling. imagine if we did that in daily conversation. “hey jeff, how are ya?” and jeff just starts screaming and clapping in your face
If Israel was being pummeled by military grade missiles, flechette bombs, and white phosphorous on the regular and Israeli children on beaches were being “misidentified” as fleeing terrorist fighters and Israeli hospitals and U.N schools were being bombed and children and civilians by the masses were being ruthlessly and indiscriminately killed and their only power plant was being destroyed and their land was being occupied and 1000 people, over 75% of which were innocent civilians with no connection to militants and over 25% of which were children had been murdered by the Palestinian army I’d stand up for the Israel, I’d make a strenuous effort to shed light on their mistreatment, their deprivation of human rights—but it’s not like that, it’s Palestine that’s being indiscriminately attacked by missiles each day, it’s Palestinian hospitals that are being destroyed, it’s Palestinian families and children that are being killed by the IDF so I’ll talk about Palestine, I’ll support Palestine, I’ll stand for Palestine.
I’ve come to the conclusion that Sam and Dean would take one look at Night Vale and burn it to the ground, civilians be damned.
i’ve come to the conclusion sam and dean would drive into night vale and spontaneously combust from being exposed to sexual and racial diversity and women who don’t die within a week
mainstream tumblr feminism may have many glaring faults but it has bred an army of teenage girls who understand the common ways that misogyny is reinforced in society and who know that they’re better off loving their fellow woman than fighting with her and that’s actually pretty damn revolutionary
“When targets of microaggressions attempt to point out the offensive nature of remarks and actions from perpetrators, they are told that their perceptions are inaccurate, that they are oversensitive, or that they are paranoid. In other words, they are out of touch with reality. The experiential realities of those in power are imposed upon less powerful groups by denying their perceptions and life experiences. Interestingly, some have asserted or found that those groups who are least empowered have the most accurate assessment of reality. Such a conclusion makes common sense, as those in power do not need to understand disempowered groups to survive or do well, while those without much power must actively discern the mindset and motives of those with power in order to survive. Women in the workforce must understand the thinking of their male counterparts to do well, but the reciprocal is not true for men.”
