A very good way of going about explaining this issue. It’s good to see something positive come from Tumblr.

HOLY SHIT. THIS. THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO TELL PEOPLE. SHUT YOUR MOUTH ABOUT MEN VS WOMEN. @_@

this is literally so important

This is the best example and illustration I have yet to find. If more people realized that this is what equality is pushing for then we would be better off.

Breaking via ABC News: UN Human Rights Council votes to open inquiry into alleged war crimes in Gaza; U.S. is the ONLY “no” vote.
That’s because the U.S. is a direct accomplice to every war crime that Israel commits.

This woman deserves a round of applause and a throne of gold. This is the most realistic & amazing thing for someone to say for this generation of students. I wasn’t able to go to college this year because my parents can’t afford to send me and I had every scholarship, grant, loan known to man and it still wouldn’t work. Finally someone gets it!

Can she be president? Because Im 30 deep now for not paying and building up some more because Im back in school. 

The fact that in other countries it’s free to get a college education is such bullshit. We go to school for years to recycle money back into our economy with our jobs from the college degrees WE have to pay for.

An open letter for the people in Gaza

mardhiyya:

Oh My God - this the most incredible letter I have come across and I can’t believe the Journal it’s in. The Lancet has prestigious heritage as one of the world’s leading medical journals, which continues to inspire authors with an impact factor of 39.06 (which is very, very high). I can’t believe how accurate, well researched, and well-put this entire letter is. The entire thing is amazing, and I have never been more proud to be a part of this community. I have so much hope in the Truth and humanity. And Zionists, your terrorism has been exposed by everyone.

PLEASE READ IT AND SHARE!

"On the basis of our ethics and practice, we are denouncing what we witness in the aggression of Gaza by Israel.

We ask our colleagues, old and young professionals, to denounce this Israeli aggression. We challenge the perversity of a propaganda that justifies the creation of an emergency to masquerade a massacre, a so-called “defensive aggression”. In reality it is a ruthless assault of unlimited duration, extent, and intensity. We wish to report the facts as we see them and their implications on the lives of the people.”

We are appalled by the military onslaught on civilians in Gaza under the guise of punishing terrorists.

"Each time the death toll is borne mainly by innocent people in Gaza, especially women and children under the unacceptable pretext of Israel eradicating political parties and resistance to the occupation and siege they impose.

Under the pretext of eliminating terrorism, Israel is trying to destroy the growing Palestinian unity. Among other lies, it is stated that civilians in Gaza are hostages of Hamas whereas the truth is that the Gaza Strip is sealed by the Israelis and Egyptians.”

None of these are military objectives. These attacks aim to terrorize, wound the soul and the body of the people, and make their life impossible in the future, as well as also demolishing their homes and prohibiting the means to rebuild.”

"We witnessed targeted weaponry used indiscriminately and on children and we constantly see that so-called intelligent weapons fail to be precise, unless they are deliberately used to destroy innocent lives.

We denounce the myth propagated by Israel that the aggression is done caring about saving civilian lives and children’s well-being.

Israel’s behaviour has insulted our humanity, intelligence, and dignity as well as our professional ethics and efforts. Even those of us who want to go and help are unable to reach Gaza due to the blockade.

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.

That bullshit heart surgery example doesn’t even make sense though, does that person think that we’re still doing heart surgery the exact same way we’ve always done heart surgery? As if medicine isn’t constantly changing and updating? Wow it’s almost like people are finding excuses to not have to think critically about the world!

"Multiple reports and witnesses have confirmed that almost half of Gaza city is now covered with white phosphorus gas. Mainly Shaja’ya area. This is not the first time Israel uses this brutal and heartless war method which burns the body and produces toxic gases. Incase you didn’t know, white phosphorus gas is illegal in all international war laws, and UN laws. It is a war crime.”

Australian helmet cam study reveals motorists to blame in vast majority of cycling crashes (+ videos)

doctoroctothorp:

A study in Australia reveals a majority of car-bicycle accidents are the fault of the motorist.  For me (as a cyclist) this is the operative sentence:

"Ms Johnson outlines actions that cyclists, drivers and the relevant authorities can all take to help increase the safety of those on bicycles, the most important from the bike rider’s point of view to keep out of drivers’ blind spots, particularly around lorries and 4x4 vehicles, as well as maintaining eye contact with drivers."
