"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.”
Nobody gives the black girl mob credit for being smart as fuck. They clown but at the end of the day they are really intelligent.
And it’s not subtle at all.
Taystee is a math prodigy in addition to being well-read, Poussey is multilingual, Cindy just knows shit, Suzanne studies Shakespeare, Watson was a good student in addition to being a track star, Vee is basically an evil genius. Piper often learns the most from them; they taught her how to fight and helped translate Pennsatucky’s biblical threat.
The show flat out acknowledges the (academic) intelligence of the black inmates time and time again, but the audience collectively ignores it.

I am not sure I have ever seen a better use of that reaction gif.

The concept behind this chilling creation by Yosuke Tan sees past students from Iwaki Sogo High School (Japan), using 27 litters of paint, leave their handprints on the windows and walls of the building to create a striking mural of cherry blossom trees.

One thing you can usually count on: The New York Times will feature horrific and troubling news on its front page.
Six times as many Palestinians killed over the last 72 hours than all projectiles fired at Israel have killed in 13 years.
Yeah, conservatives do the right thing for once and then get pissy when a democratic president enforces it.
They have fallen so deep into the hole of obstruction that they themselves have dug that they have no other alternative but to keep it up, even if it destroys the country.
An FYI, since I wasn’t familiar with this law: Bill Clinton signed the first version of this law in 2000, and W. reauthorized it three times during his presidency. Obama reauthorized it once, more than a year ago.
So, yes. Conservatives are mad Obama is following the law. Conservatives are mad Obama is doing anything. Conservatives are mad because Obama.
Anyone who thinks the migrant children escaping the drug war that we created should be deported or treated like criminal elements is a monster. These are children. Fuck, people, even Glenn Beck wants us to treat them with love and dignity. Even if the U.S. government weren’t required to immediately resettle undocumented children, we have obligations as human beings to help these children.
Just, fuck anyone who has any objection to these children. Fuck each and every one of them.
