Congress is what happens when you put white people in charge.

And Africa is what happens when you put black people in charge.

Translation:

Clearly I don’t know that Africa had many great and thriving civilizations before Europeans came and fucked that up.

And that’s the story of how Nichelle Nichols stuck with Star Trek after the first season.

I can’t STAND this shit. I’m still awaiting a response.

Fucking slammed.

THIS IS AWESOME.

GET FUCKING WREKT.

The reason sexist pigs don’t like to see women breastfeed their children in public is because they don’t believe womens’ bodies belong to themselves. To them, women are decorative and to use their bodies for a different purpose other than being attractive makes these algae turkeys VERY ANGRY. 

Breasts can’t be sexualized when they’re in the mouths of children, don’t you know! Breasts are for VIEWING. Not for EATING. Duh.

Women’s Accomplishments: Convincing men in the 1920s that they should be allowed to vote.

Men’s Accomplishments: Modern Medicine

Modern Medicine? Have you never heard of Henrietta Lacks? Florence Nightingale? Elizabeth Blackwell? Clara Barton?

Or anything about the

Because when a girl dresses as a boy, she’s just a tomboy and it doesn’t really matter. But when a boy dresses as a girl, it’s considered awful.

All it does is show me you have a superiority complex and deep rooted classist tendencies. I’ve been a waitress, a barista and a sales associate, so your talking down to others just tells me at one point you would’ve talked down to me. This guy in the queue tried to buy me a coffee today, after ripping into the guy behind the counter about his skills and his job. Don’t care what people do for a living, if you don’t treat ‘em like (very important) people when you deal with them, we can’t be friends.

"A person who is nice to you but cruel to the waiter isn’t a nice person."

I don’t understand how people don’t get this

It is terrifying. It means if you don’t adhere to their demands or if you make on little mistake, they can turn on you. I don’t deal with people who are nasty to others.

Fucking *this*.

(It is a busy Saturday night. During the dinner rush, I have been dealing with a table of two 20-something year old men. The blonde one has found something to complain about every time I’ve walked by while the brown-haired one just blushes and stays quiet. They’ve finished their meal.)
Blonde Man: “Are you new here?”
Me: “No, sir. I’ve been a waitress here for two years and three years at [other restaurant] prior.”
Blonde Man: “Then you have no excuse for how terrible this service was. The salad was wilty, and the entree was way too cold, and you were nowhere to be found. Plus, this place is far too noisy; I could barely hear myself speak! Honestly, I get better service at a fast food place.”
Me: “I’m sorry you feel that way. While there isn’t much I can do about the noise, I did offer to bring you different food before, but you said no.”
Blonde Man: *waves me off* “Just bring me the check, and try not to be so slow about it for once.”
(I go and get the check, but when I return, the brown-haired man stands up and hands me a $20 bill.)
Brown-haired Man: “Here, this is your tip. He wasn’t going to give you one. As a former waiter myself, I thought you were doing a perfectly fine job. My food was great, and the service was fast even though you’re so busy right now.”
(He turns to his blonde companion.)
Brown-haired Man: “People like you made my job so much worse, especially for making us work that much harder for no tip. So thanks for the meal, but you can go ahead and delete my number because there will be no second date. And by the way,potjevleesch is supposed to be served cold, you idiot.”
(With that, he left the restaurant without his date. It made the whole night worth it, to see that blonde man speechless for once.)



Brown-haired Man is my hero.


Be nice to people. That simple.

Interesting how we’re always hearing how shameful and irresponsible it is to be a teen mom.

But we never hear the same messages directed at teen dads.

Or even the words “teen dad”.

It’s almost like society demonizes women’s sexuality and sexual choices while absolving men of all sexual responsibility and judgement.

Fan: So I was just wondering, this is specifically about Cosima and Felix and, like, queer representation in the media. You kind of already got some positive feedback about Cosima, but I’m wondering, like, what other type of feedback you got and if the queer community’s something you keep in mind when creating those characters.

JG: Yeah, um, actually that’s a really interesting question because, from the LGBT community, the reaction to Felix was brilliant. Um, I did receive a couple of little things from the straight community, actually. Where they felt he was a bit of an ugly stereotype. And he—um, he was a bit of a cliche, over the top, blah blah blah…and my response to that has always been this…

JG: So, I feel that Felix…[CROWD BEGINS CLAPPING] I-I just don’t know when, as a society, in television and film it sort of only became okay to represent gay people in, like, the traditional sense. Where they have a great job and well-adjusted parents and maybe a surrogate, or adopted, child. Like, when was that the only way you could represent gay people…
