"Women have to protect other women"
"Women have to protect other women"
"Women have to protect other women"

And that means white women protecting WOC.
Cis women protecting trans women.
Straight women protecting queer women.
Abled women protecting disabled women.
Not just white cishet abled women protecting other white cishet abled women.

Not to mention that the woman in the gif is Angel Haze, a pansexual black indigenous woman  (who has some Native ancestry). 

[angel haze highly values her native ancestry, she’s a member of cherokee nation and taught herself tsalagi, and it’s important that we acknowledge that, esp. considering the lack of native american voice in so much media]

Isn’t ‘cishet’ a derogatory term for straight people? I agree with the general message but that meta could have definitely been worded more intelligently than that

That Net Neutrality meme leads me to say…

fatherangel:

Some people need to get a little bit of common sense and discernment, I think.

A meme is often humorous, right? Yeah, I thought so. The comment in the meme about Western civilization collapsing? It was supposed to be silly. The comment about preparing for a non-internet world? That was supposed to be silly too.

And yet people are reading that meme and taking it seriously. I’m like “seriously?” There are real actual reasons to be against net neutrality that speak about the fair use of bandwidth and infrastructure based on what you really pay, whether a lot of the internet usage should be free, whether there is enough of a free market competition in the use of the internet, and whether companies that have set up internet hardware are going to keep investing and improving the internet if they don’t get to charge more money for their investments. 

But no. Seriously. That meme was not supposed to be a real “let’s go against net neutrality because the world is going to end.” As an experiment, it goes to show that some people should get their internet and Tumblr restricted because they are freaking out and losing their calm while floating in virtual reality.

In one of the most iconic images of the Korean War, if not the history of the United States Marine Corps, 2nd Lt. Baldomero López scales the seawall at Inchon on Sept. 15th, 1950. Mere minutes after the photo was taken however, Lopez would be killed in action, jumping on a grenade that he had dropped, after being struck by North Korean fire, in the act of throwing it. He was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor.
