Simultaneously the worst and best movie ever made
Actually one of my teachers watched every single version of Romeo and Juliet with the original text in front of him to prove that this was the worst version, but to his great dismay its the most accurate film adaptation of it, with the lines closest to the original text and most similar stage direction and relayed emotions.
He proceeded to show it to us in class.

And this is why I get pissed off when.. I talk about equality, and someone says “YOU WANT EVERYONE TO BE THE SAME”. No, that’s not how it works, and I’m sick of explaining it.
Now think of how many of those female characters and protagonists are oversexed, created for the male gaze, or put in an inactive damsel role for the plot of the game. Representation matters. A Study last year proved that exposure to tv shows increased the self esteem of young white boys and markedly decreased the confidence and self esteem of girls across the board (and we haven’t even started on the representation of characters of color and the effect it has on children’s self perception).
Video games are a different media, and even more concerning if representation metrics are changing how our kids think of themselves. Especially knowing that 67% of American Households have video game consoles and 91% of Children play video games regularly, how do you think the portrayal (and lack of portrayals) of women and girls in these games is affecting little girls – or influencing how little boys view their importance and/or influence over them?

Reblogging again because this is absolutely beautiful. This doesn’t have nearly as many notes as it should, spread it around people. Help spread the love.
Do it for me guys? *hugs* Love you all.
Fuck campus police. Bastards cover up student suicides so the media never finds out. College is killing us, and they want the screams silent.
They evict students like cops do. They assault protestor like city cops do. They’re just the lapdogs of Nordenberg.
False rape accusations are an anomaly.
True rape accusations are a norm.
You’re, quite literally, more likely to be killed by a comet than falsely accused of rape.
So stop bringing them up like they’re the most important topic in discussions of rape and rape culture.
you know how the sentence “i never said she stole my money” has a different meaning depending on which word you put the stress on? same is true of “have you ever had sex with a pharaoh?” i’ve been thinkin about that for like 10 minutes now
News: Fear replaced communal atmosphere in Donetsk’s Jewish community as armed men handed out a leaflet Passover eve calling on Jews register their religion and property with the interim pro-Russian government or face deportation and loss of citizenship.
I’m scared of what would happen after they register…
I googled it. Multiple news sources are covering this. This is actually happening. This is terrifying.
My first thought is that this would lead to something bigger. I don’t know if it would be on the scale of the Holocaust, but registering of Jews was an early part of it.
