I am forever a changed human being because of this.
to put it simply jokes about oppressive majorities help create a dialogue about oppression and allow the oppressed an outlet about the shit they have to put up and if you’re willing to say that’s wrong and further silence the oppressed because ‘not all straight people are like that!!’ and you don’t want your feelings hurt or because you think it’s better to conform to the ideals of the oppressors and just ‘be nice’ then i’m sorry you deserve nothing bye

Fiction is not Darwinian: It contains no impartial process of evolution that dispassionately produces the events of a fictional universe. Fiction is miraculously, fundamentally Creationist. When we make worlds, we become gods. And gods are responsible for the things they create, particularly when they create them in their own image.
Laura Hudson writes about the shotage of women characters in Star Wars fore Wired.com in her article "Leia is not enough: Star Wars and the woman problem in Hollywood."
"Science fiction in particular has always offered a vision of the world not myopically limited by the world as it exists, but liberated by the power of imagination. Perhaps more than any genre of storytelling, it has no excuse to exclude women for so-called practical reasons — especially when it has every reason to imagine a world where they are just as heroic, exceptional, and well-represented as men."
representation fucking matters.
Toph is my hero, she really is! When I went through HELL; spent one entire summer in the hospital when I had only turned 14 a month and a half before that. I had one christmas where I couldn’t help with ANYTHING, not even setting the table because I couldn’t lift or any like that (I wasn’t supposed to put pressure on my eyes, for FOUR weeks due to recovery). I went blind on one eye (later it turned out to be cataract; little did we know back then). I missed my 18th birthday and had seven eye surgeries in total and they told me to keep in mind that I could go blind at an younger age than average because of all that.
But you know what, Toph gave me HOPE and STRENGTH. She showed me that even if I’d go completely blind; it’s not the end of the world and there are other ways to ‘see’. She is my fucking hero and nobody will EVER change that!
Quoted from Sarah Kendzior’s “Surviving the Post-Employment Economy"
“In the United States, nine percent of computer science majors are unemployed, and 14.7 percent of those who hold degrees in information systems have no job. Graduates with degrees in STEM - science, technology, engineering and medicine - are facing record joblessness, with unemployment at more than twice pre-recession levels. The job market for law degree holders continues to erode, with only 55 percent of 2011 law graduates in full-time jobs. Even in the military, that behemoth of the national budget, positions are being eliminated or becoming contingent due to the sequester.
It is not skills or majors that are being devalued. It is people.”
Her work is frank, speaking of a reality I hope that will never be mine. At the same time, it gives me a strange comfort to know that I am not alone.
WE’RE FUCKED ~ LET’S PAINT
Those of us in human/social services are even more fucked than ever before, too. Like, we’ve always been an underpaid and overworked field, but lately, yeah, it’s all, “Hey, we want a Master’s degree for this position that pays $22K a year!” Like, what the fuck. No one can live on that shit, yo.(via idyllspace)
