After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”
The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.
BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?
BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?
The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.
This. Is. Not. OK.
This is terrifying
A graduate student has created the first man-made biological leaf. It absorbs water and carbon dioxide to produce oxygen just like a plant. He did this by suspending chloroplasts in a mixture made out of silk protein. He believed it can be used for many things but the most striking one is the thought that it could be used for long distance space travel. Plants do not grow in space, but this synthetic material can be used to produce oxygen in a hostile environment. (Video)
Yeah, I might have watched a movie and gotten kind of mad.
This is seriously a trope I’d love to never see again though.
was the movie you watched ‘wanted’ because
also the lego movie… also the matrix…
VALHALLA: Where the lead female and her team induct the perfect golden boy into their group and the action is still all about the lead female. Because she’s the awesome character, and it’s her story.
I’m not saying this was ok but for the Lego movie and the matrix they were the chosen one’s so there’s really no way to change that
They could’ve made the chosen one female, or ditched the bullshit prophetic crap that they put in every damn action movie ever.
VALHALLA: No prophecy, no mysticism, and fucking “chosen one” bullshit. Just Violet MacRae shooting people and blowing things up.
Heartbreaking photos show the first day back to school in Gaza. Many students did not return.
