Junot Diaz stay not fucking up. This is a really good interview.
Comics and sci fi and fantasy can mooch off us, but it’s too hard to put us in them tho
and then they didnt put her on the final list
leaving Laverne Cox off of the Time top 100 despite the overwhelming support she received is an act of violence and erasure towards trans women

And I would definitely add transgender people to the list of people who have to go through things like this.
Reasons that, why I enjoy doing various kinds of education, it is not the job of oppressed people to educate their oppressors on issues of oppression.
NOOOO NO NO NONO FUCK FUCK FUCKIG CBS IS TELLING WOMEN NOT TO REPORT SEXUAL HARASSMENT BECAUSE IT WILL “DAMAGE THEIR CAREERS” and “HARASSMENT IS AN UNFORTUNATE PART OF CLIMBING THE LADDER” I AM SO ANGRY THEY ARE LITERALLY TURNING SEXUAL HARASSMENT INTO A NORM THIS IS NOT OKAY
This is an actual article and I’m still having a hard time believing it’s real.It was written by a woman. This hurts.
The most infuriating thing about this is that it’s probably true — reporting sexual harassment probably does have negative career consequences for women who report, because we live in a gross rape culture.
That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t report, shouldn’t sue, shouldn’t fight back, shouldn’t change everything about these truths.
But if your goal is not “How can I be treated fairly?” or “How can I have a job free of harassment?” or even “How can I promote justice in the world?” but is instead “How can I rise to the top of the corporate ladder as fast as possible?” or even “How can I keep this desperately-needed job in a precarious economy?” then, yes. The answer is probably to become good at enduring and deflecting harassment. That doesn’t make it right.
Well, I feel gross after writing that. Ugh.

How is this even a question?
The NYPD tried to start a hashtag outpouring of positive memories with their police force.
If this were ever a bad idea, it was probably the worst idea for arguably the most corrupt police force in America.
And just how did they think this was going to play out/
my thoughts EXACTLY
They played themselves. I can’t stop laughing!
