If you are an adult on the receiving end of sexual attention from a minor, the only appropriate response is a firm, non-negotiable “no.” Not an “I would, but the darn law…” not, “maybe when you’re eighteen,” a “no.” It is your job as the adult to be responsible, and to not abuse the power differential between you. What the minor wants is irrelevant to your obligations. The only appropriate response is “no.”

this is so important. too many actors fail to thank the people they play on screen. They often think they are those people and that they have actually done something through acting a part. Lupita knows the importance of playing the role of Patsey, but she always pays tribute to this real historical person and all the Patseys who have suffered. Lupita reminds everyone that Patsey is very real. That Solomon Northrup’s story is very real. This history from this movie is real and we must not forget. Thank you, Lupita. You’re an angel.
for many of us, today is no different to any other day, we spend every day fighting for our sisters in the struggle, every day we fight the systems that keep women subordinate to men - capitalism and heteropatriarchy.
every day i feel such deep love and solidarity with my fellow…

Debunking the Myth of “Vanilla Privilege”: That ‘deviant sexuality’ is in actuality, mainstream in a porn & rape culture.
What’s always going to get me is that the “nice guy” mentality knows no bounds.
I was in a wheelchair for a con (having caused myself permanent nerve damaged) and the person pushing me didn’t see a way back to our hotel without going down small sections of stairs…
when we talk about women in refrigerators it’s not always something super literal
i don’t imagine in writers room across the globe they’re all sitting there like “well we’re out of ideas let’s fridge another one” (but maybe they do i have no idea)
but what’s happening…

1) it groups Latinxs together with spaniards. I’ve heard on many accounts that many spaniards dislike Latinxs and think that they did us a ” favor” by colonizing us. We’re different from spaniards and many of us don’t want to be grouped with our colonizers.
2) it excludes latinxs who dont speak spanish at all or spanish as their native language like brazilians! Hispanic refers to people who are from Spanish speaking countries/speak Spanish as their native language.

"Gina can land all 8 blows in a blistering 3 seconds. And how much does this maelstrom combine to generate? An amazing 4,800 pounds of force. That’s like a North Pacific giant octopus pounding you with all 8 of it’s arms. Translation: In 3 seconds, Gina could break your ribs, give you a concussion, shatter your nose, rupture your spleen, cause internal bleeding, and put you down for the count."
but women can’t be superheroes
Hey it’s Gina Carano.
