Artist Maxime Mary created a Little Golden Books-style book jacket and one interior page showcasing characters from the popular crime TV series. The other artists behind the “Little Golden Tales” exhibit contributed pieces based on Lord of the RingsDoctor Who, and more.

I hate music where it’s like, ‘it all sucks, fuck this, we’re gonna die, fuck you, kill yourself’, and I hate shit where it’s like ‘it’s gonna be alright, everything is just fine’.

The most powerful aspect of music is that it can open your eyes to the frustration of everything and give you the adrenaline and faith to go on with the ideal that you can make it better if you do your thing.

daily reminder that minerva mcgonagall is metal as fuck

reminder she took 3 stunning spells directly to the chest and after being taken to st mungos brushed it off like nothing

Why McGonagall is the shit

This is why I will never accept that Harry didn’t name ALL OF HIS CHILDREN afterthis woman. He loved her so much.

I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy

because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless

and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.

yayfeminism:

One would assume that scientists, who are trained to think objectively, are completely immune to gender discrimination. However, a recent Yale study by Corinne Moss-Racusin and colleagues suggests otherwise.
The researchers created a fictional student and sent out the student’s application to science professors at top, research-intensive universities in the United States. The professors were asked to evaluate how competent this student was, how likely they would be to hire the student, how much they would pay this student, and how willing they would be to mentor the student. All of the applications sent out were identical, except for the fact that half were for a male applicant, John, and half were for a female applicant, Jennifer. Results showed that, with statistical significance, both male and female faculty at these institutions were biased towards male students over female students.
Data from the study shows that on average, science faculty was willing to pay the male applicant about $4,000 more per year. source

"The gender gap doesn’t exist" 
"We don’t need feminism" 
"Maybe he just worked harder"
"*any MRA bullshit*"

I had to read this study for class. It is thorough as fuck.

stuffmomnevertoldyou:

Who invented glitter?

and a nifty evolutionary theory about why we love the sparkly stuff.

Jack the Ripper didn’t kill sex workers: he killed women, some of whom sold sex sometimes. Jack killed flower sellers. Jack killed charwomen. He killed mothers, daughters, sisters, and wives. The case files that Ripper historians scrutinise for clues about his identity contain extraordinary details about these women’s ordinary and fascinating lives.

From these files, I learned about their friends, their lovers and their children; their love of drink, their quick tempers, and their favourite songs. I have seen pictures of their dead faces, and read coroners’ reports about the weight of their lungs, livers and hearts. These women are infinitely more interesting to me than the identity of their killer. Finding out about their poverty, their work and their experiences of injustice and inequality is far more important than their killer’s DNA. They are the real story of the Whitechapel murders. It is time for popular history to think more about them, and less about Jack.

assholes wanna act like people from marginalized groups are over sensitive and yet the shit we deal with literally every day irl is 1000 times worse than someone on the internet asking you not to wear a sombrero or say the n word or joke about rape or whatever the fuck else these babies wanna cry about

"Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable… Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle." At times, social activism may seem bleak and hollow, but the fact that justice prevailed this time makes me very optimistic in this moment. The family of Jordan Davis can hopefully fi nally begin to heal. #ViGetsSentimental


holyyyyyyyyy fuckDo y’all realize how serious this is?
