    There has only been five female characters comfirmed playable compared to fifteen male characters.

    I’m amazed at those exact numbers because 33% is the point where men will start thinking there’s a majority of women in a group.

    Twenty years before NWA screamed “Fuck tha Police” Marsha P. Johnson was in the streets of New York throwing shoes at them (so the story goes). Marsha P. Johnson (June 27, 1944 – July 6, 1992) aka “the Saint of Christopher Street” was an iconic trans* rights activist. She was a leader in the resistance against police harassment in what we know as the Stonewall Riots. She also was the cofounder of Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries (S.T.A.R.)

Right now, many major drug companies’ business practices keep their own profits high while keeping medicines out of the hands of millions of people who need them. Until we change the way medicines are developed and marketed, too many people will go without needed treatment because quality medicines are not available to them.SHARE THIS IMAGE to show you stand with Doctors Without Borders in calling for access to quality, affordable medical treatment for ALL.

    [Series of texts by @fatnutritionist, which read: “People are mad at me because they ‘work so hard’ to be fit or lose weight. They have told me this explicitly. It implies that they think my rejecting the values they subscribe to can somehow take away the fitness they’ve worked for. That is totally delusional. If you’ve worked hard for fitness, no amount of fat people rejecting stigma can take that away. So this is obviously not actually about fitness, at all. It’s about the other thing they ‘worked hard’ for: social status. They DO think, and they know, that the social status they have worked hard to earn, through ‘fitness,’ can be devalued. It can be devalued if the hierarchy that rewards them is crushed. Crushed by people rejecting stigma. We can’t take away your fitness or whatever weight you’ve lost. But we can devalue those things by destroying fat stigma. So they are afraid of us, and for good reason. If fat people aren’t stigmatized, then there is no more thin privilege. Remember always, fat people: People are afraid of you because you have an awesome power - to destroy the hierarchy. If they were not afraid of losing their place in the hierarchy, they would not come after you so viciously.” All tweets were accompanied by the hashtag, #notyourgoodfatty]

    So CNN just showed a report on the royal visit to New Zealand, which not only actively mocked the cultural traditions of the Maori, comparing the haka to the mating dance of the emu, but also denigrated the cultural traditions of many other groups as being ‘native’ and generally silly. It’s this kind of shoddy journalism and blatant racism that perpetuates an idea of multiculturalism being some kind of childish joke and trivialises the identity of 15% of NZ’s population. If you want to do something about it, there is a complaint here, and the petition associated with it here.  .

    Last quarter I was told secondhand that a professor at UCI straight up said to a Native student in class that Native Americans were uncivilized and their only technology was “dancing around a fire”. This was in the context of a class discussion “debating” the “pros” and “cons” of colonization of the Americas.
