She has a valid point there…

Do you think she knows she has an Octopus on her head?

i don’t care what she has on her head, this girl knows what shes talkin about

This is actually studied in business. A lot of people are willing to take it from their male superior, but if its a woman, there’s backbiting and whispered comments out the wazoo.

Studies have shown that parents treat boys and girls differently, even if the parents think that they are treating them just the same. In one study five young mothers were observed during interaction with an infant called Beth. The women handed Beth dolls to play with, smiled at her often and thought her to be sweet and to have a soft cry. The reaction of a second group of mothers, to another infant named Adam, were noticeably different. The mothers offered him ‘male toys’ such as trains and cars to play with. Beth and Adam were the same child dressed in different clothes. Once a gender is assigned, society expects children to behave accordingly.

from Sociology by Anthony Giddens (2009)

Funny, my daughter took a purse full of cars to church today while her brother took My Little Pony dolls. 

I’m just saying… it’s possibly to be aware of the gender roles assigned by your culture and reject them without rejecting people. The toys are only as gendered as you think they are. If you think everyone can drive a car, a car ceases to be a Boy Toy and becomes a Car.

A young Jewish refugee with her Chinese playmates. Shanghai, China (x)

Between 1933 and 1941, it is estimated that 20,000 Jews escaped persecution by fleeing to the Chinese port of Shanghai. Shanghai was one of the few places in the world that would accept Jewish refugees at this time, Japan being another.

i am furious that i am just now learning about this important fact.

Because it has nothing to do with the USA being the superhero and saving all the Jews

Police continue to make arrests at Ferguson protest.

Part 4.

Take note: The moment people stopped reblogging and tweeting and writing news articles and calling attention to Ferguson, they brought back the armored cars. It is not over. They were waiting for the world to lose interest and knew it would.

Re-reblogging for that last part
