Do you know how much I would know about what’s happening in Ferguson if it wasn’t for social media? Nothing. Zero. 

Ditto.

Jokes aside I feel like we all need to take a minute to thank the people on the streets literally risking their lives bringing us this information with their cell phone video cameras. Furgeson is on media lockdown right now and without the people braving tear gas to bring us this information we’d all be in the dark.

1. White terrorists are called “gunmen.” What does that even mean? A person with a gun? Wouldn’t that be, like, everyone in the US? Other terrorists are called, like, “terrorists.”

2. White terrorists are “troubled loners.” Other terrorists are always suspected of being part of a global plot, even when they are obviously troubled loners.

3. Doing a study on the danger of white terrorists at the Department of Homeland Security will get you sidelined by angry white Congressmen. Doing studies on other kinds of terrorists is a guaranteed promotion.

4. The family of a white terrorist is interviewed, weeping as they wonder where he went wrong. The families of other terrorists are almost never interviewed.

5. White terrorists are part of a “fringe.” Other terrorists are apparently mainstream.

6. White terrorists are random events, like tornadoes. Other terrorists are long-running conspiracies.

7. White terrorists are never called “white.” But other terrorists are given ethnic affiliations.

8. Nobody thinks white terrorists are typical of white people. But other terrorists are considered paragons of their societies.

9. White terrorists are alcoholics, addicts or mentally ill. Other terrorists are apparently clean-living and perfectly sane.

10. There is nothing you can do about white terrorists. Gun control won’t stop them. No policy you could make, no government program, could possibly have an impact on them. But hundreds of billions of dollars must be spent on police and on the Department of Defense, and on TSA, which must virtually strip search 60 million people a year, to deal with other terrorists.

Juan Cole, 08/09/2012

Juan Cole actually wrote this 4 days after a white terrorist, yes, terrorist, murdered 6 and injured 4 people at a Sikh gurdwara in Wisconsin. The terrorist who committed said crime spoke of an impending “racial holy war” beforehand and was a member of white supremacist/neo-Nazi hate groups.

"The negative effects of assigning novels that generally focus on men are subtle, but damaging to the self esteem of the girls that are reading them. It’s a classic example of the hidden (read: sexist) curriculum in our schools, and it tells young women that men are more interesting and that what men have to say carries more value than anything a woman might want to contribute. And all of this affects boys as well. If neither the media nor their English teachers will expose them to the complexity and humanity of women, then what is going to stop them from stereotyping and making kitchen jokes? A diverse education is the key to ending prejudice. And the lack of female authors reinforces the idea that women do not have successful careers, particularly in academic pursuits, which is a stereotype that Jane Austen was battling in the 1700s. How’s that for progress?"

c-hange:

reality is girls have stretch marks and instead of shaming and photo shopping people should accept and embrace it.

I read something adorable a few years back that has stuck with me: a little girl points to her mom’s stretch marks, asks about them, mom calls them her “tiger stripes” and says that someday you will get them, too, and little girl expresses discontent that she doesn’t have her tiger stripes right now.
I don’t care what on a woman’s body is aesthetically/theoretically appealing to a 4-year-old (though obvs her response is sweet, aww inducing), but I love the fact that mom positions stretch marks as a fact of life, a definite event, with no shame
