Unless, of course, you’re rich because that means you earned it and don’t have to help anyone ever because apparently sharing is only for children.

How Designers Are Failing People With Disabilities

Image description: On the left is a white man sitting in a manual wheelchair. To his right is the Carbon Black, the sleek, black, lightweight wheelchair that he designed. 

I really don’t understand with how the fact that he is a white man affects his design!

Our race and gender affect everything we do, whether it’s apparent to us or not. They affect the opportunities we get, how we see the world, etc. That doesn’t invalidate his design; it’s just a fact of its circumstances.

With that said, I mentioned race & gender in the image description because it added a small detail to fill out the picture for people who need descriptions - people who are blind or visually impaired, people with slow internet connections, etc. People of color are often named as such in image descriptions, while white people’s race goes unnamed. I don’t always name photo subjects’ race, but I try to describe people as white as often as I would describe them as black, Asian, etc. The risk, of course, is that I might guess someone is white and be incorrect; but that does not seem to be your problem here. 

Simply describing a white man as such should not offend you. 

It just occurred to me that with all the complaining white people do about people of color “playing the race card” no one frivolously “plays the race card” more than white people do.

this guy pulled out his dick in front of like 5 billion feminist protestors holy shit

Some context for the idiots claiming the women are overreacting:

This occurred at a Slut Walk. For those not familiar with it, the Slut Walk is basically a peaceful protest seeking to eliminate the rape apologism so prevalent in society. The basis is that no woman is “asking for it,” with “it” being rape. It’s not a feminist protest; it’s a human rights protest.

Many of the protesters, as you can probably imagine, have dealt with sexual harassment or rape in their own lives. Many of them have structured their daily activities to avoid being raped. The gathering is supposed to be a place for them to feel empowered and able to recover in the company of those who understand what they’ve been through or who will not blame them.

Nobody at a Slut Walk will tell a survivor that it’s her fault. They will not ask what she was wearing to provoke her attacker. Nobody will say she had too much to drink. Nobody will tell the men in the group that they are inherently rapists themselves, and nobody will tell a male survivor that his experience “wasn’t really rape.”

Then, this fellow comes along. He sees this gathering of survivors and their supporters, and to him, it’s a joke. He sees feminazis. He sees girls who are taking “a bit of fun” too seriously. And what does he do? He exposes himself to this group of survivors and supporters - some of whom are, in fact, underage.

He sexually harasses literally hundreds of women in one act. Aside from public indecency, there was cruel intent in his actions. He wanted to make them uncomfortable. He wanted to “put them in their place.” Other photos from this event show him flipping the protesters off and laughing at their anger.

And there are still people defending his actions. There are those who still feel like these women were asking for itand that they deserved to be harassed for trying to claim they weren’t. There are those who feel that women should be taught a lesson this way, and they applaud this man’s actions.

So no, he didn’t pull out his dick in front of feminist protesters. He harassed dozens - if not hundreds - of rape survivors. The reaction to his actions alone outline the purpose of the Slut Walk.

For those of you still doubting whether what he did was wrong (and I do wonder if there’s something wrong with you, if you have doubts), let me give you an analogous situation. Imagine a gathering of black civil rights activists. Imagine Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, and all their colleagues gathered together to demonstrate that being black did not make them lesser people. That being black and living in the South did not mean they were “asking” to be the target of hate crimes.

And at this gathering, a white man decides he should teach them a lesson by pointedly hanging a noose from the nearest tree and laughing at their anger. And other white men, laughing along with him, commend him for taking these activists down a peg.

That’s what happened here. It’s not an “OMG, I can’t believe he did that!” moment. It’s an “OMG, there are people who think this is okay” moment. And the fact is, it’s not. It never will be. And that’s the take home message of this ridiculous rant I’ve written up.

And this is why we still need feminism.

this made me cry holy shit

That was hands down one of the most well-written and beautiful responses I have had the pleasure to read. Thank you

This isn't a question..... just this.... I think it's offensive the way MRAs butcher rape stats in order to make women out as liars. As someone who was assaulted It makes me incredibly upset to see their bullshit posts. I can't understand why they would do this if they weren't just complete misogynists.
thoughtsblurbsfeelingsideas thoughtsblurbsfeelingsideas Said:

MRA’s feel tremendously threatened by the advancement of women’s rights I think because they are used to male privilege. As a result they will say anything that will hinder progressive women’s movements in order to maintain their privilege. It’s sad that so many of them don’t consciously do it. Our society caters to them so much that they cant see the injustice that happens around them and as such are blind to the inequality. So many MRAs honestly believe that rape is rare because they’re too far up their own asses to see it. They also tend to view legitimate movements against male privilege as misandristic because our society has conditioned them to such a point that they honestly believe equality has been reached and that anything that says otherwise is offensively oppressive. Basically they have this bubble they’re trying to maintain, and fudging rape statistics is another way of keeping that bubble.

Students Fed Up With Michelle Obama’s School Lunch Overhaul — Menu-Item Snapshots Spell Out Why

Wow that is depressing. 

okay but is that michelle’s fault for pushing for healtheir lunches or is it school districts’ faults for cutting corner by cutting calories but not making lunch any healthier?

let’s look into it.

Yes, thank you. Because yes she is pushing for a healthier lunch, but the schools still value football over feeding their students, which means that instead of providing enough healthy food to keep their students from starving, they are cutting down the amount of food available to fit within the caloric requirements … while then taking the money they saved to re-sod the football field for the third year in a row. Maybe new uniforms.

….Because apparently Michelle Obama has the executive power to order all schools to do certain things?

no..

…and I doubt any one would consider any of this shit “healthy.”

also, I’m going to point out that the reason why this looks like so little food is because these schools don’t actually know how to comply, or aren’t willing to give the lunch programs the time, effort, funding, and training, to comply with these standards.

Also, look: that link was filled with misinformation. Check the actual USDA factsheet.

Plants are not conscious.
Plants do not feel pain.
Plants lack a central nervous system. 
Plants lack sentience.
Animals are sentient beings.
Comparing eating plants with eating animals is laughable and if you’re sticking up for “plant rights” you eat both things, without plants you would die. Take a long look at your life.

Hot Topic is known amongst artist groups as one of the worst offenders of art theft in U.S. retailers. I know artists are important to What Pumpkin, and I’d imagine multiple cases of art theft would be a very big deal. The most well-known of the cases were stolen fan art from independent artists, which is the same demographic the Design Contest was aimed to.  I’m an artist myself and I wouldn’t want to support a store that steals from my peers.

The people running Hot Topic have zero respect to artists and to copyright law. They’ve been ripping-off independent artists’ storefronts, and continue do so. The whole company really should have been shut down long ago.

If you support artists, independent, fan artist, or any kind, you should oppose Hot Topic and MSPA’s association with them!

Tell What Pumpkin to kick Hot Topic out of the Design contest RIGHT NOW.

We have so little time left to stop this please tell them that it is completely unacceptable to do any sort of business with petty art thieves.

Even if you don’t know what to say, or if you think it would compromise the contestants; It won’t. Just please voice your thoughts in anyway you can put them. Don’t let Hot Topic get a dime out of Homestuck.

Today, 11 states still allow deer hunting with dogs. Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.Deer hunting with dogs causes more deer to die of infectious wounds than even bow hunting because the deer are usually running, and the vast majority of hunters can not hit a moving target.Often times, if the dogs are able to run the deer down and overwhelm the animal, the dogs will start eating the deer alive until the hunter is able to track down the GPS coordinates and call the dogs off.

If you’re a hunter, I honestly don’t have respect for you.
