California prisons sterilized female inmates without permission (by RTAmerica)

I’m going to watch this later but I’m boosting and posting because this happened very recently and needs to be brought to light

In 2013!!!! Omg.

2 Questions:

1. Where is the outrage from mainstream feminism?

2. Where are the supposed pro-lifers?

*I don’t actually need responses to these questions, cause I already know the answers. 

Bolded.

I feel sick. 

Not 150 years ago. Not fifteen years ago.
Not fifteen months ago.
LAST. YEAR.

And not a word from mainstream white feminists

But hey, it’s regarding jailed WOC so it’s not their concern, right?

This makes me so fucking angry, I can’t even process the information. I just… ugh. I’m gonna go punch a wall or a police officer or something.

Here’s an article about it for those for whom text works better than a video.

A video game that lampshades the player’s ability to revive after death and incorporates it into the setting:

"I don’t know what planet you’re from, kid, but here on Earth people stay dead.”

And they do. NPCs that are killed stay…

Borderlands 2 incorporates resurrection technology. You respawn at the last New-U station you passes with 7% less cash and a chirpy corporate message such as 

  • "Hyperion hopes your death was a learning experience, but wouldn’t mind if you made the same mistake just a few more times just to be sure."

Dumbledore, notorious for giving second chances Dumbledore, let Sirius rot in Azkaban for twelve years.

He must have known Sirius well due to his time in the Order, he must have known what James meant to…

Even Remus thought Sirius was guilty, so I find it hard to blame Dumbledore for that.

And it’s not clear to me that Dumbledore could have sprung Sirius from Azkaban if he tried.

dammit-mcu:

People actually arguing that Cap 2 didn’t have enough Avengers, especially Tony, even though he was referenced a lot, because it’s clearly not a cohesive universe if Tony Stark isn’t running around doing shit in someone else’s movie.

Also, apparently Sam Wilson’s appearance is…

Let’s be real, there’s no way MCU Tony would be HYDRA. They need you to be GOOD at keeping a secret identity. In all seriousness, for all his skills, he’s never going to be a useful part of a top-secret organisation that requires decades of quiet co-operation. 

But for practical reasons - and we see them on screen - it’s really unlikely MCU Sam could be an undercover SHIELD agent, and so he’s likely safe from the HYDRA taint.

A scene where Steve and Natasha sat about listing their options and debated the possibilities of each person being HYDRA would have slowed the movie down to little purpose. Can’t we just assume that they talked it over while travelling, and decided that though sure, there was a *tiny* chance HYDRA was dedicatedly arranging meet cutes with Cap for its agents, it’s still a much safer bet than stopping by Stark Tower, an extremely high-profile location where we saw in Avengers that SHIELD has access to some of the security systems?

I’m a big Steve/Tony shipper, but Steve and Natasha turning to Sam for help made perfect sense, and doesn’t (to me) imply any particular distrust of Tony by Steve or Natasha.

captain america 2 opened with steve earnestly describing the internet as “so helpful!” and that was when i knew this movie and i were on the same page

#steve is not stuck in the past #steve is not perplexed by technology #basically that whole…

The testing could go both ways, though; as a black guy Sam’s got to wonder how Steve felt about certain aspects of the “good old days”. I wonder if they’ll ever address that explicitly in the MCU; it got some play in both 616 and Ults.

so is Sam/Steve a thing people ship and do people call it American Eagle and if not why the hell not and DON’T TELL ME IT’S BECAUSE A FALCON IS NOT AN EAGLE, look there is literally nobody upon this beautiful planet who is as invested as I am in raptor distinction but sometimes you just have to make a sacrifice for the greater good, is all I’m saying

Did someone call for AMERICAN EAGLE - oh wait. Wait, this is awkward.

White Feminism. Menstrual blood is considered medical waste and if you deliberately expose people to yours then you’re a jerk. If you force people to clean up your mess because you thought your periods were beautiful and you should free bleed all over public places you’re a jerk. If you make your feminism all about menstruation, ignoring the fact that it’s not exclusive to women, then you’re a jerk.

- Mod D.

And once again, many people with vaginas that have gone through rape or sexual abuse have had vaginal tearing, bleeding, or physical trauma from it. Even still, when I get my period my first thought goes to the blood on the bed sheets from physical trauma, not from a naturally occurring body function. I can’t be the only who has that trigger, and if you free bleed in public spaces where people dealing with that might be exposed and triggered, you’re an asshole. I get that menstruation is/can be beautiful, but it’s not always the first thing a survivor/victim will think of when they see blood between someone’s legs! Not to mention people who have dealt with miscarriages or stillbirth, where vaginal bleeding can be a reminder of the loss of a wanted child. Blood is associated with a lot of things, but especially physical pain. Please be mindful of this (and the medical/health issues already pointed out by the person above) if you’re seriously considering free bleeding.

STOP! FREE WHAT? Isn’t blood a biohazard? How is that even hygenic? ETA: I hear it’s a prank?

Free bleeding is one of those things that can work for women who have a light flow (and I’ve heard the shape of vagina/vulva makes a difference). It’s not supposed to make a mess, it’s about not using products unless you need them (or that’s how it started, anyway). Of course, like any “this works for some people” idea, group A tries to push it on everyone “you are a BAD FEMINIST if you don’t free bleed your period blood is the sacred essence of womanhood” and group B acts like it’s some kind of horrifying global pandemic “blood in the street the menstrual fluid is OUT OF CONTROL damn feminists” and then it all goes round in increasingly ridiculous circles.

1) blood is a biohazard, be careful.

2) you don’t necessarily need to go through four pounds of cotton a day to be careful.

Ah, I see. 4 pounds of cotton a day, eh? :/

Mm naturally the sellers of sanitary products would prefer people having a period to use a tampon and a pad and maybe panty liners the rest of the month JUST IN CASE. Which is, in the vast majority of cases, complete overkill. But many women are raised and encouraged in the belief their bodily functions are utterly taboo and will fortify their underpants with ramparts of super absorbency just in case.

No criticism intended towards people who have really heavy flows or are upset by blood! But the original intent of free bleeding was just to relax a bit against the pressure to be ~fresh and dainty~ even it it takes cramming half a sheep up there to keep your panties spotless.
