Cyber harassment study reveals the unsurprising!
It still amazes me that I talk to guys who still think they get harassed just as much as women online. Like even from people who aren’t clearly and totally gross dumbasses. It kinda makes me think that, even in the best cases, it might be hard to really understand the sheer difference in frequency. You see a woman get harassed on a game and you go “Oh well I’ve been harassed” without understanding that there is seldom a session for her where that doesn’t happen or understanding what her inbox might look like…

I tried to read the original study but the link wouldn’t work?

It looks like UMD has changed basically their whole directory structure. Bizarrely, I couldn’t find it through Cukier’s site either once I found the new address.http://www.umiacs.umd.edu/publications/assessing-attack-threat-due-irc-channelsThe Google Scholar link gave me the full text PDF.

She’s not black but she’s a dark skin Indian woman who wants to inspire other dark skin girls/women.

Lydia Marsha is a Kuala Lumpur-based model who is of Indian ancestry. She says, “I always wanted to inspire dark-skinned women out there to show them how gorgeous they actually are. I had a passion for modeling since I was young. It has always been something I want to do. I’m hoping that meeting and working with new people in this industry will help me expand my dreams and help me extend my arms to my ladies of colour. I want to inspire and be inspired. I believe that this is what I am born to do, to model, as it completes me. I aspire to be the next best thing, to walk the runways of Paris and to be a professional Indian dark-skinned model. I don’t just want to be a model, I want to be a role model.”

If you still support FCKH8 even after all the biphobia, fat phobia, sexism, transphobia and NOW trying to profit from Mike Brown’s death.

I got news for you: you’re a shitty activist

Don’t forget Ace and Pan erasure, as well as being generally abusive to both their criticizers and their fans every time they mess up and someone says something about it. Basically they’re garbage.

My father recently lost his job, we lost our house and now on top of this he has been diagnosed with cancer of the lymph nodes. 

He is a professional machinist and has been working as one for over 30 years, only to then have his work stolen from him by his own mother and sister.  We’ve been scraping by since then and now that he lost his job we have absolutely nothing to live off of.

He is such a strong person and until yesterday I have never once seen him cry.  We’re absolutely devastated - he has cancer and we have no way to help him.  

He has always refused to take money from other people and he has spent his life helping people in need, and now we are the ones who need help.

My mother’s best friend has made a gofundme to try and help us pay our bills (we currently have no income whatsoever) and get him the treatment he so desperately needs.  

If you can’t donate then (please, please, please) signal boost this.  I’ll also share with him any supportive asks I receive regarding this..

I love my father so much and I am so afraid to lose him right now.

GOFUNDME

Update: Apparently some people are having issues with gofundme so I’ve added a donate button to my sidebar!!  Thank you guys so much!

Update #2: The doctor alerted us that they’ve likely found cancer in his sinuses as well. Please please please signal boost this I’m really scared right now.

Update #3:  He has cancer in his lymph nodes and we just found out he has it in his bone marrow as well…  Please please please signal boost this, the notes have slowed down to a near standstill and It’s really worrying me.. Even if you can’t donate, please reblog.  We need help.

livingwithanopenmind:

I don’t have any tape left to fix my bandages and I am out of money to buy more.

Please donate here (http://www.gofundme.com/f0uzwc), it is really needed and appreciated. Each dollar counts.

If you can’t donate, please reblog this post.

has anyone posted this yet? I love it! 

You’re buying an experience, not a person. 

51 days, 6 hours since Mike Brown was killed.

hasdarrenwilsonbeenarrestedyet:

Systematic injustice persists in Ferguson as police arrest protesters and then attempt to use them to coerce protesters.. As @caulkthewagon wrote: “If Ferguson PD is willing to exchange arrestees for crowd movement, then those people haven’t been arrested, they’ve been kidnapped.”

100 more days until Grand Jury deadline.

“This piece was primarily a trust exercise, in which she told viewers she would not move for six hours no matter what they did to her.  She placed 72 objects one could use in pleasing or destructive ways, ranging from flowers and a feather boa to a knife and a loaded pistol, on a table near her and invited the viewers to use them on her however they wanted.  
Initially, Abramović said, viewers were peaceful and timid, but it escalated to violence quickly.  “The experience I learned was that … if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed… I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.”
This piece revealed something terrible about humanity, similar to what Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment or Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, both of which also proved how readily people will harm one another under unusual circumstances.” 
This performance showed just how easy it is to dehumanize a person who doesn’t fight back, and is particularly powerful because it defies what we think we know about ourselves. I’m certain the no one reading this believes the people around him/her capable of doing such things to another human being, but this performance proves otherwise.”

this is why performance art is important


So every single person who told me ‘ignore them they’ll go away’ and ‘you can’t let them know they bothered you’ and ‘They’ll stop if they don’t see you react’ and all that bull shit, my entire school career, I want you to look good and hard at this.
I want you to think about what you said.
What you keep saying.
What you are telling your children.
You are making them powerless.

that last comment. actually crying.
