Ok Dr. Phil’s wife, Robin, (yes groan, but listen up) has this new app out (iPhone and Android) that’s for people in abusive relationships. It’s called Aspire News and it’s disguised as a regular news app, but when you go to the “Help” section of the app, it leads you to…
WHITE ALLIES, anyone who wonders why POC make a big deal about being discriminated against, or just anyone who’s interested, PLEASE WATCH THIS VIDEO. AND REMEMBER THE NAME… JANE ELLIOT. White allies watch and observe how Jane rolls.
Everyone watch this.
Seriously though, that teacher who went on about her husband having to wear offoce clothes in order to fit into society was so gross. She even said she was surprised that a black girl in her class had pink flesh underneath the skin (which she saw when the girl was scrapped.)
That teachers can be like this is really, really disturbing and heart-wrenching. Ignorant and obtuse.

The Emmy-winning series ran on Cartoon Network from 1998-2005 and will soar again as a brand-new, redesigned and re-imagined CG special coming in 2013 where the trio of pint-sized super heroines will be called upon to rescue not just the city of Townsville, but the USA and the world!

The special also features the original voice cast reprising their iconic roles and will premiere later this year.
"I don’t get my authority from this preexisting paradigm which is quite narrow and only serves a few people," Russell responded. "I look elsewhere for alternatives that might be of service to humanity."
And with that, the first shots of Russell’s revolutionary interview were fired.
Over the course of the following ten-or-so minutes, Brand and Paxo volleyed back and forth over subjects ranging from political apathy, to corporate greed, to gorgeous beards.
Throughout the interview, Brand repeatedly dodged Paxman’s efforts to trivialize his message — at one point Paxman literally called Brand a “very trivial man” — until finally, even the entrenched newsman appeared to relent against the rushing tide of Brand’s valid arguments.
After Brand reminded Paxman that he cried after learning that his grandma too had been “fucked over” by aristocrats, the Newsnight host was stunned into silence.
"If we can engage that feeling and change things, why wouldn’t we?" Brand crescendoed. "Why is that naive? Why is that not my right because I’m an ‘actor’? I’ve taken the right. I don’t need the right from you. I don’t need the right from anybody. I’m taking it."
I don’t mean to impose a personal favour on you guys, but I really would like to ask that everyone who follows me reblog this.
I don’t think I made it very clear but last month I was sexually assaulted by someone who I thought was my friend (I don’t want to talk about it don’t ask), and it’s… really fucked with my head.
Had I known this a month ago I would have been able to get away.
So, essentially, I’m really pleading with you to reblog this so everyone who follows you doesn’t get stuck in the same position I was with no way out.
I mean again I don’t want the point of this to be my sob story or whatever but if you could reblog this it would seriously mean a lot
Signal boosting because no one should be forced to have sex. No one should ever be in a position where they cannot protect/defend themselves.
I really appreciate how matter-of-fact the instructor is in this video, without making it sound like there’s any fault to be placed on the victim or sympathy to be given to the attacker. Definitely worth a watch.
Contrasting the attitudes of Americans and South Koreans reveals much about the paranoia that U.S. politicians and the feckless news media are able to inspire. While North Korea has escalated its threatening rhetoric aimed at South Korea, Japan, and the U.S., it should be fairly obvious that the…
Rape is one of the most brutal and heinous crimes imaginable. This undergarment is designed to disable the attacker with a powerful electric jolt, while letting the cops know where an attack has occured using GPS coordinates sent by text message. The lingerie was invented by three engineering students at Sri Ramaswamy Memorial University in India, where violence against women has become a major problem. They say that most attacks against women begin with the assailant grabbing the woman around the neck and chest, so the garment protects that area. Pressure sensors trigger a high voltage power supply, which sends 3,800kV pulses through wires embedded in the bust area. A polymer lining protect the wearer from getting a shock themselves, which obviously would defeat the purpose of the garment. At the same time as the attacker is being zapped, a cellular module determines the location of the attack with GPS, then sends to coordinates to the police so they can respond. No word on when the garment may be commercially available, or how much it might cost. (via Rape resistant lingerie zaps the attacker, texts the cops | DVICE)
