if your privilege/oppression framework is defined solely according to “these people get a kind of flak these people don’t get” and not “these people are actually materially exploited by these people” then you get all kinds of bullshit like vanilla privilege or, idk, non-goth privilege. tall privilege. you can apply it to literally anything

7 dangerous myths about women who wear hijabs

The hijab is not the most important part of being a Muslim woman, but it is certainly the most visible. In a time when Islamophobia only seems to be on the rise in the West, a practice that is so personal and diverse has become a warped and misunderstood part of a flat and monolithic picture of Muslim women.

People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.

Watch the powerful Verizon advertisement to really understand what a little girl hears when you tell her she’s pretty.

US soldier jailed for seven years over murders of Afghan civilians
A US soldier has been sentenced to seven years in prison for his role in the murders of Afghan civilians last year.
Pvt 1st Class Andrew Holmes, 21, was among five soldiers charged over the “thrill killings” of the three civilians during patrols in Kandahar. The murders have been described as among the most serious war crimes charges to emerge from the Afghanistan war.
Holmes, from Boise, Idaho, confessed in court to firing a heavy machine gun at a boy from 15 feet away, after his co-defendant threw a grenade at him.
He was accused of directly participating in the first killing and initially charged with premeditated murder among other charges.
But in a deal with prosecutors, Holmes pleaded guilty to murder by an inherently dangerous act, as well as possessing a finger bone from his victim and smoking hashish.
Judge Lt Col Kwasi Hawks sentenced him on Friday to seven years in jail, saying there was no excuse for the murder.
“You aimed a fully loaded squad automatic weapon at [a] child that stood 15 feet away,” he said.
(continued)


He gets seven years for shooting a young boy and killing other innocent Afghan civilians while posing with their dead bodies in pictures. He gets seven years for murder. Seven years, that is all.
This is extremely inhumane, unfair and disrespectful to the people who lost their lives in some maniac’s blind blood sport.

Don’t care if I posted this a few hours ago. Everyone needs to see this. I’m still appalled and hurt to see how injustice continues to grow like an epidemic in USA. This man kept the finger of one of his murdered victims and he still gets seven easy years. Seven years only for murder. Troy Davis may not have committed murder but he receives a lethal injection and is executed despite global pleas.
Makes my blood boil.

This hasn’t gotten enough recognition

god forbid we actually see something good on the news for once

fucking prodigy man 

Yes young black king! You better go head! 

His name is Stephen R. Stafford and he would have been set to graduate from med school even earlier if there wasn’t a rule that said he had to be 16 to graduate from high school.
He’s also a talented classical pianist - he’s been playing piano since he was two years old.

Someonne told me the other day our generation was lazy. HA!
