Petition for all sex scenes that go onto TV or into films be reviewed by a panel of women during production so we can go “Nah bro that’s rape can’t do that try again.”

This is an important event in history, especially Canadian and feminist history. So I’m going to tell you more about it.

1) The shooter had been rejected from Ecole Polytechnique prior to the shooting. He blamed this on these female students, claiming that they were feminists who ruined his life.

2) In the first classroom he entered, he demanded the men leave before shooting at the women. No man attempted to stop him as they left. Take that as you will. (Later on, several men did get injured trying to stop him in the hallways.)

3) In his suicide letter, he believed that feminists were attempting to be more powerful than men, and were trying to take men’s rights away.
4) Feminists were actually blamed by some for the massacre. The line of logic was “if feminists didn’t make women’s rights an issue, Levine wouldn’t have wanted to kill feminists!” Victim blaming at its finest.

5) The mainstream news media often did not publicize the outrage from women’s groups, and often preferred those who took a calm approach. Ironic, that.

6) Despite him literally having a hit list of feminist icons in his final letter, several newscasters questioned whether or not the shooting was a sexist act, some even denying the idea outright.

8) Many memorials for the victims have been created, and rightly so; however, some prominent ones were erected in poor neighbourhoods where many Native women were killed every day in the same time period as the shooting (see: Marker of Change, Vancouver) (see: Missing Women, Vancouver). Basically, white feminism happened. 

The entire event was nothing short of a tragedy, and I recommend that everyone read up on it and the resulting aftermath. It’s… interesting to see how the media tried to turn it into a random act of psychopathy instead of what it was (we know better now, luckily). The reactions (memorials, etc) to the deaths of these 14 White, middle class women as compared to the deaths of 60+ Native, lower class women are also “interesting” to compare. (By interesting, I mean infuriating.)

this is hugely important

Imogen Heap helps invent gloves that will “change the way we make music”

Read More

I don’t think anyone could possibly imagine what having these would mean to me

theres too much you could do with this i wouldnt know what to do oh god

this is so fucking COOL

The Mi.Mu Glove is on Kickstarter, the campaign ends May 3.

@3:03:
It’s really exciting to see what people might do with hacking them. So, the software is gonna be open-source, and so is the hardware.

Considering how much data the gloves are able to process (right down to specific gestural input), and the fact that the gloves are wireless, this could go far beyond music. Mix these gloves with the Oculus Rift, and they might just become the solution for controller-free VR Input.

I really, really hope the campaign is funded.

Ask A Manager, 12 March 2014:

I was written up at work yesterday due to a single comment that I made. Last week, I was frustrated with a woman employee who failed to meet a deadline on a simple task (not the first time she’s done this) and, while blowing off steam, one of the things I said was that it’s a good thing she is pretty. I did not mean this is in a derogatory way. I was simply frustrated and this woman is not above me in any way; she is entry level. She also did not tell me immediately that I had upset her at all; the next I heard about it was from my manager. I would like to question why formalities were initiated – I feel this was unwarranted for a single, isolated comment and that an apology would have been sufficient. Can I do this? If so, what is the best way to approach it?

Broads, man. Broads. Always getting their snooty little panties in fuckin’ wads over some little piddly shit like reducing their entire human worth to their physical attractiveness, measured on an ever-sliding scale of unattainable perfection according to the arbitrary whims of some fucking dude at work.

Can’t fucking tell anyone they’re barely worth the skirt they’re wearing anymore, all this fucking PC shit about “blah blah blah casual sexism is a demonstrable manifestation of real-world systemic oppression that permeates through all interactions humans have as social beings raised in a culture that privileges certain expressions of heterosexual cisgender masculinity inkity tinkity yarpity blarfity” and “yadda yadda it’s important to maintain a level of professionalism between supervisors and entry-level employees that does not in any way associate the quality of their work with their sex or gender presentation dippity dippity doodah.”

Moreover, this female didn’t even come straight to you and complain after you expressly implied that her job would be in danger had you not personally found her to be such a hot piece of ass, no, she had the fucking gall to complain to your fucking boss like it’s any of their fucking business what door your knob wants to open, as it were. Now you’re in fucking trouble for just bein’ the honest, forthright appreciator of women’s bodies that you are, which: REVERSE SEXISM!!1!1!!!!!!

You absolutely deserve to know why this woman’s expectation that she not be overtly sexualized in a work environment by higher-up employees is such a big fucking deal—after all, you were only trying to tell her that she’s pretty fucking great in the special and beautiful way that only broads can be great, which is to say the way in which they are great for doin’ it with. You can only be sexist if you mean to be sexist, and you didn’t mean to be sexist because your smart fucking monkey brain magically operates outside of literally every one of the cultural and social norms that serve to perpetuate patriarchy.

You should should bust the fuck into your humorless, boner-killing manager’s office—that way they see that you’re a fucking dude who means fucking business because he is not a fucking patriarchal buttbag RAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRR—and demand to know why these “formalities” were introduced when all you were fucking trying to do was tell this n00b that you’d do her a solid—GET IT? HAHAHAHA—if she asked.

no-more-ramen:

This is a perfect treat that is a pretty healthy (and salmonella free!) version of cookie dough! Plus it includes a lot of ingredients you might already have! 

- 1 container Greek yogurt 
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 1 tbsp nut butter (I used almond butter! it was soooo yummy)
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- pinch of salt
- chocolate chips

All you have to do is put the ingredients in a bowl and mix em up! Some notes: the best yogurt for this imo is Fage 2% plain, but feel free to use whatever kind you like, however plain yogurt works best. Also, feel free to replace maple syrup with agave or splenda or whatever else you have on hand!
