Just a little bit diffrent

Universities across Japan are beginning to offer balanced breakfast options for only 100 yen ($0.98) to students so they can show students the importance of breakfast on their health and well-being.

can this be a thing here and at jobs. even 3 dollars would be great.

slowly were seeing in the media the fact that very few women consider themselves Feminist because of current fourth wave ideology that says “boys and men are being trained as soldiers in the war against men” (feminism today Article) still waiting on feminism to start pushing a equal rights amendment. still 3 states away from being ratified after removing the expiration clause folks.

Clearly a Misogynist male right? similar situation in my life born in one of the most diverse cities always had female best friends and though everyone equal regardless of sex or ethnicity. went to some of the most diverse schools in the united states and graduated in human services with intern ships. this year i was called a misogynist behind my back when i called out her prejudice comment about MRA’s and that they had nothing to do with Pick up artist let alone that many of them are women like girl writes what who deconstructs issues properly. On top of that faced indirect ostacization from the rest of the group who didn’t want to deal with the situation or have them be in any way responsible for their actions. this motivated me to actually spend time studying the issues and the industry of money there is in painting women as victims, yellow journalism that edits videos to claim someone is a misogynist when they were talking about female empowerment and not wanting to be seen as victims 30 seconds prior. let alone the fact no one brings up the Equal rights Amendment as a solution to these problems. So maybe someday equality but until then I will sit back and defend people like karen straughan who bring up things with actual examples and evidence.

This isn’t to say that women haven’t been courageous. There’s Joan of Arc, Harriet Tubman, and many women in the police and military today. The difference is that unlike men, women have a choice, and society does not shame women for not taking up these roles. Not now, not in ancient Greece, not in…

examples of lack of court accountability

University Study on Sexism in Doctor Who

"Fun fact, Rose’s Bechdal test score would have been in the 80′s were it not for the episodes Moffat wrote during her run."

Guys, really, you should click the link. 

“Ironically, the woman who is often propped up as proof that Steven Moffat is, in fact, not a sexist was one of the worst in terms of the Bechdel test and overall independence of thought and character. While maintaining an average speaking time, the episodes she is in only pass the Bechdel Test 57% of the time, and she herself only passes 42% of the time. She also never passes it on her own after Series 5. It is also important to note that River’s “passes” barely scraped by this test. Her passing conversations were always around three or four lines of exchange total, limited to one per episode, and were always in the presence of/with the Doctor.”

And this doesn’t even touch on all those instances of misogynistic dialogue the Doctor himself suddenly started spouting once Moffat took over.(Defintiely click through, it’s a worthy read.)
In addition since moffat took over less women have been lead writer or director. weather intentional or not that’s a problem.

Ads Against Apartheid (AAA) launched these brilliant ads on the Boston subway system this week.

“The ads simply state the facts and are backed up with citations from credible human rights and international organizations, including the United Nations,” said Chadi Salamoun, the president of Ads Against Apartheid, who added that “if the ads are shocking, that’s because the reality on the ground is shocking.”

Richard Colbath-Hess, a Jewish-American faculty member at the University of Massachusetts, and the co-founder of Ads Against Apartheid, noted that “American tax dollars help the Israeli government maintain an incredibly brutal military occupation, which has denied the Palestinian people their basic rights for decades. These ads show what Israel’s occupation and apartheid really look like, and it is important for Americans to see that.”

Real Time with Bill Maher: 6.6.14 — Anthony Weiner, Jim Geraghety, Nicolle Wallace

#FINALLYSOMEONESAYSIT

Holy shit, Anthony Weiner actually said something important.

It’s a miracle!

That’s been the Republican strategy since day one of Obama’s presidency. Block the President at every turn, then blame him for not getting anything done. In fact, here’s Newt Gingrich openly admitting to it.

That’s why Republicans block jobs bills — so they can blame Obama for the economy still sucking. They’ve blocked budgets, resulting in a government shutdown that they then tried to blame on Obama. They’ve tried over and over again to block Obamacare, and complain that it’s a failure as they work their asses off to try to make it fail.

It’s kindergarten politics, and we need to vote these schmucks out in November. A bunch of white guys throwing temper tantrums and shouting NO! to everything just because they don’t like the president is no way to run a government, especially if we’re going to continue to pretend to be one of the greatest nations on earth.

THIS IS WHY WE NEED TO VOTE IN NOVEMBER.
