The Trials of Socrates

Socrates was executed for corruption of youth and impiety. I aim to do him proud.

"I think every woman at one point or another in their life has been called a bitch. For a long time I had a real problem with that word, I didn’t like it and I thought it was derogatory. But I’ve gotten to a place now where I’ve made a lot of peace with it. It’s been so overused and made to seem so derogatory towards woman that I’ve adapted it into an empowering feeling for myself. If I’m a bitch then I’m a bitch, if that’s what an assertive woman is to you. So I’ve sort of adapted it as a badge of honor."

I need feminism because “Who hired a stripper” shouldn’t be the first thing said to me when I walk into a welding job.

women in trades are treated like such fucking shit. 

NO I’M STILL STUCK ON THIS WHY WOULD ANYONE SAY THIS TO A WOMAN HOLDING A BLOWTORCH

Love the Cosplay Is Not Consent posters at Sakura-Con! (at Sakura-Con 2014)

It takes one convention to make a public stance about this. I don’t know if ECCC was the first, but it’s the first one I noticed really making a point. I love that it’s spreading!

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.

They cyberpunk revolution is coming, friends.

Daily Mail reporter lies to food bank, steals money from the state, and from people who legitimately need it, all in the name of writing a smear article about food banks.
Mind blown.

"No questions asked" apart from all the questions they asked him…..

Well, that is awful. How much do you have to hate the poor to go as far as to steal their food and then try and shut down places that help them? What could you possibly gain from this?

My “favorite” part is the stern, accusing look he’s given, as though he’d caught them selling soylent green.

It’s easy to get angry about the Daily Mail.
This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it.

This Teenage Artist Was Bullied Off Of Tumblr After Making A Webcomic About White Privilege →

And sometimes white people get mad at other white people. 

The comic in question no longer lives on her Tumblr page, but you can find a reprint of it (with full credit and her permission) here: http://www.buzzfeed.com/aaronc13/this-comic-perfectly-explains-what-white-privilege-is

My heart goes out to this young woman, and I hope that she eventually feels comfortable enough to come back to Tumblr, as she’s a smart and gifted artist. 

Her tumblr, if you want to follow it, is http://jamietheignorantamerican.tumblr.com/

It’s a shame that this happened.  Her comic was perfect and nobody deserves death threats.

I love her comic and its a shame she got bullied off for telling the truth.

that comic was great. jesus white people y’all need some serious humility and love in your life.

wtf 

White people need to chill.

Doesn’t this just prove her point? 

From her page:

Please do not send me any more messages about how awful it was that I received death threats. I am beyond pissed that everyone has taken my comic about white privilege and the effects of institutionalized discrimination, and has turned it into a rallying cry against online bullying. This was not the point I was trying to make. Stop making me the face of bullying, and do NOT make me the face of “White Allies”. ——————-THERE ARE COMICS AND POSTS LIKE MINE BEING MADE BY PEOPLE OF COLOR ALL OVER THIS WEBSITE, AND THEY DON’T RECEIVE 1/5TH OF THE ATTENTION THAT I HAVE GOTTEN. THE FACT THAT MINE GOT POPULAR SPEAKS VOLUMES TO WHAT EXACTLY WHITE PRIVILEGE IS. I may not have deserved this hatred, but I do NOT deserve ANY praise. I want you all to know that Education is NOT where oppression ends, it’s where it begins. Thank you all for your kind and thoughtful words, but it’s over now. There’s nothing left for me to say.
