“If you really believe that representation doesn’t matter, then why the fuck are you threatened by it? If not seeing yourself depicted in stories has no negative psychological impact - if the breakdown of who we see on screen has no bearing on wider social issues - then what would it matter if nine stories out of ten were suddenly all about queer... - http://thepeopleseason.tumblr.com/post...

20 Times Joss Whedon Was Too Good At Twitter
 
Joss Whedon has done it all - he’s written countless beloved cult-hit TV shows, he’s written one of the greatest X-Men runs ever, and he’s directed one of the highest-grossing films of all-time. However, he’s ALSO a genius in the 140-character limit arena of Twitter. Doesn’t seem fair, does it? How can one guy be good at EVERYTHING?!

The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”
  
"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
 
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
 
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.

PLEASE REBLOG THIS: Is there anyone in the Chicagoland area that wants a dog? I can no longer keep our dog Dablund because I’m going to live on campus.
 
He looks to be a poodle mix and I estimate that he is around 4 years old, give or take a few months. He loves attention, doesn’t seem to like other male dogs or small children and needs a family/owner with lots of patience.
 
I have more pictures upon request and I’m not asking for anything for him. If you can pick him up, that would be ideal. In a few days he’ll be given to a shelter.
  
UPDATE: in order to avoid him getting into the hands of people looking to make a quick buck by selling him to a testing shelter, I’m charging $25 for him. But if I know your tumblr well enough, he will be free.
  
OMG he looks like the dog I had growing up! She was a lab/cockerspaniel mix. Unfortunately I can’t take him, but signal boosting for local peeps who might be looking for a pup. 
 
Hopefully he won’t have to go to a shelter. Signal boost please!
  
Poor baby.

If you’re telling a non-black person about something racist that happened to you, make sure you are not bitter. Don’t complain. Be forgiving. If possible, make it funny. Most of all, do not be angry. Black people are not supposed to be angry about racism. Otherwise you get no sympathy. This applies only for white liberals, by the way. Don’t even... - http://thepeopleseason.tumblr.com/post...

After 40 years of impoverished black men getting prison time for selling weed, white men are planning to get rich doing the same things.

The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that.
