So apparently iCloud was hacked and pretty much every female celebrity’s nudes were leaked. I’d like to remind my followers not to post them, because they’re supposed to be private, and just because some asshole leaked them doesn’t mean you should make it worse by spreading them around.

Guys it’s really important during this whole ferguson protest that we as social media DO NOT back down until punishment is dealt to those racists. If we let this movement die, then the oppressors win. I’ve seen stuff like this before and the majority of people stop posting about it within a week. We can’t let that happen, this is too important. so keep reblogging and keep posting until these darn racists are punished for their awful inhumane actions.

Guys, just because it’s out of the mainstream media doesn’t mean that the problems are gone. We gotta keep giving attention to these issues

I honestly am not thrilled that Naoko Takeuchi is working on Sailor Moon Crystal. I dislike a lot of the radically feminist tones of Crystal (I.e., the very blatantly feminist theme song, Tuxedo Mask being written out whenever possible), which I can only assume were her doing.

submitted by anon

I am legit crying with laughter.

Like, who has EVER looked at Sailor Moon and thought “nope, nothing feminist about this here story all about women who are strong and capable and kick ass in heels and nail polish.”?

And of course, Tuxedo Mask being written out of everything totally explains why he’s in every episode and gives Sailor Moon advice and strength, yup yup.

"I’m not thrilled that the creator of Sailor Moon is working on Sailor Moon"

lmao

Moon Pride (Sailor Moon Crystal Theme)

I want to become your power

Tears run down the face; eyes burn in fiery red;

Fierce as a lightning; someone cries for love.

In whatever kind of darkness, you’re surely not alone right?

As the Moonlight shines upon us.

Ah, even for girls, certain pride can’t be given up—

the determination to not put their fates in princes’ hands,

but to fight for themselves.

Shiny Make-up I shall sparkle and assemble the starry sky.

I’m not a weak being who only receives protection.

Swung by the waves of sorrow; burnt by the fires of anger;

Dazzling as a lightning; Vowing for eternal love.

Even now we’re far apart, you’re surely not alone right?

As the Moonlight binds us.

Ah, for girls, certain weapons are invincible—

the gentle gaze that supports the weak,

and the strength to accept all and everything.

Shiny Make-up I shall glitter and embrace the starry sky.

Our connections across time and space give me courage.

Much yearning, much suffering, bring tears to my eyes; 

Such longingness, such loneliness, quickens beats of my heart.

In this vast universe, no matter how many times I’m reborn,

I’ll still fall in love with you.

Shiny Make-up I shall fly towards yonder starry sky.

Even in this world filled with evil, I believe in the future.

—Thus, 

Shiny Make-up I shall fight under the starry sky.

A new legend begins at this very moment.

La La Pretty Guardian SAILOR MOON

This theme song is flawless and I’m so happy a new generation of girls will get to experience Sailor Moon.  Feminist Moon Pride for life!

JonTron just linked this image as an example of how men are stereotyped and exploited in video games I’m literally laughing out loud holy shit

for anyone who still doesn’t get it notice the background please

Fun fact: topless slave girls are COLLECTIBLES in this game.

See, the problem is that the guys objectification is empowering. You’re empowered because you’re taking advantage of the other objectified people.

Also, can my followers who like guys please comment on whether or not they find this guy sexually attractive?

nah, too much muscle. Muscle is hard… I want something soft to rest my head on! :P the only guy that i’ve ever been attracted to who has looked like this is Jason Momoa. 

I personally like muscles. I adore them. They fascinate me.
But this Conan doesn’t look sexually attractive. He looks like he’s gonna kill me - he’s intimidating and forceful. I’d better stay away from him.
If he looked like this
I’d say “Well, hello sexy.”
Objectification and sexualization don’t really depend on character’s looks, even if they use it to objectificate and sexualize. They depend on character’s purpose and agency.
A girl character can run around with her titties exposed but still could be not sexualized.

Just my 2 cents

This post just got a whole lot more awesome.

Cash raised for killer Mo. cop now surpasses Brown donations
August 24, 2014

Online fundraisers for Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson surpassed the amount of money raised for Michael Brown’s family as the officer’s supporters gathered at an afternoon rally Saturday.

Supporters of Wilson, the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., came toBarney’s Sports Pub in south St. Louis.

"Many of us have received death threats toward ourselves and our families," said one speaker, wearing sunglasses, paint beneath her eyes and a baseball cap. "We will not hide. We will no longer live in fear … If you support Darren Wilson, make your voices heard."

She refused to give the media her name, saying “You want my name? I am Darren Wilson. We are Darren Wilson.

The media has shown a strong bias against Wilson supporters, the speaker said, drawing loud applause from the crowd.

"We share the united belief that officer Wilson’s actions on Aug. 9 were warranted and justified and he has our unwavering support," the woman said.

A crowd-funding page created for Wilson raised $235,010 from 5,902 people before organizers stopped accepting donations Friday after surpassing their goal of $100,000 in four days. The group then opened a new fundraising page, which already has more than $104,000.

This amount surpasses the more than $214,000 raised in support of the Michael Brown Memorial Fund. According to the page, which was set up by Brown family lawyer Benjamin Crump, “the funds will assist his family with costs that they will acquire as they seek justice on Michael’s behalf.”

The Support Darren Wilson group, which has more than 58,000 likes on Facebook, encouraged supporters who could not attend the rally to “blow up some Twitter accounts” with photos of supporters and the hashtag #‎iamdarrenwilson.

Disheartening (though unsurprising) and thoroughly disgusting! 

As the situation in Ferguson continues to be horrible, this is just one of many things that… You know what, is just so awful. It’s so awful. There is no reason to be financially or emotionally supporting a murderer, no matter your political or religious stance. I want to say I “can’t believe” it’s happening, but of course I can. It’s just awful. How can people be so cruel?

Like most, I’m just watching these events from afar, feeling helpless, donating where I can to help Ferguson and its people. It never feels like enough, though.

Anita Sarkeesian is the creator of Tropes vs. Women in Video Games, a YouTube video series examining gender tropes in video games. The series was financed via crowdfunding, and acquired notoriety when its Kickstarter campaign triggered a wave of sexist harassment against Sarkeesian.

When Sarkeesian raised nearly $160,000 using Kickstarter, there was an immediate backlash from members of the gaming and internet communities. Commenters on her YouTube and Facebook pages wrote hateful comments, threats of violence, and death threats.

A game that appeared on popular Flash game website Newgrounds allowed players to virtually assault Sarkeesian by clicking on her face, effectively “beating her up.” As players continued to click the picture, scars, bruises, and lacerations would appear on a photograph of Sarkeesian,

On August 26th, Sarkeesian received a series of graphic threats [trigger warning: rape, violence, sexist slurs] as seen here.

You can show your support of Anita Sarkeesian by donating to her organization, Feminist Frequency, by clicking here.

Feminist Frequency is a 501(c)3 non profit charity, so all donations are tax-deductible.

sorry white people but if you dont support mike brown & the people of fergusons’ protests in 2014 you probably wouldnt have supported abolition in the 1800s or civil rights movements in the 1960s & having the ability to recognize something as morally justified in hindsight something that has already been accepted by the mainstream as morally justified is nice for u but on all practical levels useless to everyone else
