Former Marine turned photographer Joel Parés’ series Judging America used real people dressed as stereotypes to remind us to not judge a person based on their tattoos, clothing, ethnicity, profession, or sexual orientation, but on their merits.

Cyber harassment study reveals the unsurprising!
It still amazes me that I talk to guys who still think they get harassed just as much as women online. Like even from people who aren’t clearly and totally gross dumbasses. It kinda makes me think that, even in the best cases, it might be hard to really understand the sheer difference in frequency. You see a woman get harassed on a game and you go “Oh well I’ve been harassed” without understanding that there is seldom a session for her where that doesn’t happen or understanding what her inbox might look like…

That is a sort of stunning degree of difference.

"The data’s in! Women were lying about online harassment!”
"Aha! We knew it!" 
“Yeah, they’ve been severely underreporting how bad things are for them, turns out.”
"Wait, what?"

whenever someone says “bi means two so *biphobe noises*.” i like to imagine them biting into a jellyfish and being remarkably surprised to find they are neither made of jelly nor fish

This is the best thing I’ve read all day.

What’s happening in Hong Kong?


fireinthehob:

  • The protests are being held in order to achieve universal suffrage in Hong Kong. Although democracy had been promised for 2017 in 2008, China announced this August that Hong Kong people would only be able to vote from a pool of 2-3 specially selected candidates (all of whom would definitely have pro-China sentiments) 
  • University students held a week-long boycott of classes to protest for true democracy in Hong Kong 
  • Today riot police were deployed against peaceful protesters. Equipped in full riot gear the police used pepper spray to deter the protesters, mainly students and youths but also some elderly people have reported being sprayed point blank 
  • It is estimated that over 50,000 people have joined the protest and this number continues to grow
  • This is the largest political protest in Hong Kong since our independence from the UK in 1997 
  • Although the protests remain peaceful, police have now started to use tear gas and have brought out long guns loaded with rubber bullets (there hasn’t yet been a report of any bullets being shot)
  • Over 80 arrests have been made including students as young as 16 for taking part in these protests
  • They are cutting cell phone receptions in the protest area so that people can’t share any information
  • Violence is increasing as police continue to instigate protesters
  • All this comes right before the October 1st celebration of the 65th anniversary of founding of the People’s Republic of China 
  • There are rumours that the PLA (the Chinese army) are going to be brought into the city tonight 

More facts about Hong Kong:

  • We run under a one country, two systems policy with China meaning that we are part of China but have our own government and laws. 
  • Protests for universal suffrage have been held throughout the summer but these are the biggest yet 
  • Anti-China and anti-government sentiments are at their highest levels yet. Survey results showed that 1 in 5 people are thinking of emigrating from the city. 
  • In June, China issued a white paper essentially telling Hong Kong to remember their place and re-asserting their authority over the city

The scenes from the protest look awful. In my 17 years in Hong Kong I’ve never seen anything like it. The world needs to know about this and say something before we get a recurrence of the Tiananmen Square massacre.

I hope everyone stays safe. Hong Kong stay strong.

Ron Weasley gives free ice cream to kids. Harry Potter talks about the importance of feminism and gay rights. Hermione Granger is a UN Goodwill Ambassador for Women.

The heroes of my childhood became the heroes of my adulthood.

Also these are all pretty solidly in-character, too.

Happy Birthday kateordie, we love you!

It is Kate Leth’s 256th birthday on this planet, and to celebrate this, we have THREE NEW KATEORDIE ITEMS IN THE TOPATOCO STORE! Three! It’s bananas!

Speaking of bananas, we have the "NSFW Shirt", which you might have seen before on the "Adults Only" stickers.

We also have announce the existence of the “Geek Girl Illuminati” shirt and patch! Beware, geek girls are everywhere! And we will get you.

I love the Geek Girl Illuminati shirt and *obviously* need it.

THE IMAGE WON’T LOAD, PLEASE TELL ME THIS IS SPIDERMAN THREE.

I am literally unable to handle awkwardness from movies. I start to twitch and sweat and it is emotionally traumatizing. 

My fella and I have a phrase to describe this: “not enough pillows!” It basically means we’re so horrified and embarrassed that there aren’t enough pillows in the world to hide behind.

In discussing this terrible shirt and this terrible shirt on Twitter tonight I had an idea:

What if anyone who hates the idea of either wrote a sarcastic review like lots of women did for the stupid “for women” Bic pens on Amazon? Express your ultimate motivations to be not a superhero in your own right, but instead the wife of a superhero. Let your inner 1950s housewife out into the internet. Talk about how you want to not be Superman’s equal. Be the lack of change you don’t want to see in the world.

If you like the idea, have at it. I’ll be crafting mine in the morning. Something like “gee whiz Batman has everything I want: lots of money and no time for me!”
