muslims make up about 1/4 of the worlds population. you’re bound to have some criminals and very bad people that practice islam, but nobody cared about the religion of the sandy hook shooter or of other people who have done horrible things. the only time it matters is when they’re Muslim and that really pisses me off.
In 1967, Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to run the Boston marathon. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” However, Switzer’s boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire marathon.The photographs taken of the incident made world headlines, and Kathrine later won the NYC marathon with a time of 3:07:29.

Awesome women in history.
I can’t explain how much I love rulebreaking, society changing, progressive women.
Wow, this was as recently as the 70’s. Seeing this posts makes me have a whole new perspective on knowing my parents ran many marathons together in the 70’s-80’s. I wonder if my mother ever experienced something like this. If she did, she never told me.

We were discussing homosexuality because of an allusion to it in the book we were reading, and several boys made comments such as, “That’s disgusting.” We got into the debate and eventually a boy admitted that he was terrified/disgusted when he was once sharing a taxi and the other male passenger made a pass at him. The lightbulb went off. “Oh,” I said. “I get it. See, you are afraid, because for the first time in your life you have found yourself a victim of unwanted sexual advances by someone who has the physical ability to use force against you.” The boy nodded and shuddered visibly.“But,” I continued. “As a woman, you learn to live with that from the time you are fourteen, and it never stops. We live with that fear every day of our lives. Every man walking through the parking garage the same time you are is either just a harmless stranger or a potential rapist. Every time.” The girls in the room nodded, agreeing. The boys seemed genuinely shocked. “So think about that the next time you hit on a girl. Maybe, like you in the taxi, she doesn’t actually want you to.” —

DISNEY HAVE STOLEN MY ARTWORK
I don’t know what to do. I am so upset. Can anyone help me?
My painting was created back in 2010, (see it HERE) and since then so many people have expressed their love for it, not just on tumblr, but in many places. At least 9 people had it tattooed on their bodies. It’s one of my favourite images I created at University and I was proud of it in many ways.
Disney have used it on a cosmetics bag HERE (look at the back)
and they have produced a Tshirt HERE with a really similar design clearly modeled from my painting
I’m so mad because I have no chance at getting Disney to do anything about it. I had so much respect for the company and now I am just SO upset and disappointed.
Any help, advice or signal boosting would be amazing. And thank you so much to the kind person who messaged me about this.
This is really sad.
Look at the bag. It is the EXACT drawing. This is terrible. For the company responsible for a lot of current copyright law to do this - wow.
Please signal boost. Literally the only thing someone can do against Disney’s stealing someone’s work. Without all the lawyers.
This is so sad. :(
Signal Boost…DISNEY! One of your designers stole this and no one noticed. Please give Katie a fair (7%) royalty WITHOUT going through the unnecessary hassle of a law suit…THANK YOU! That would be the only way to prove to me that you don’t suck.
From an ethical standpoint, the one who stole the image and made money off of it is obviously in the wrong here, but from a legal standpoint, doesn’t this technically count as fanart of Alice in Wonderland and doesn’t Disney own the rights to that however far that extends? (*I know as much about copyright law as I do about rocket science… which is to say, not much at all)
Indeed that would be the case if Disney owned the copyright to Alice, but they don’t.
“Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” was written in 1856 by Lewis Carroll. Illustrations in that book showed Alice as a blond girl wearing a blue dress and an apron, as shown in Katie’s artwork above. Disney’s adaptation was created about 100 years after that.
Those illustrations (as well as the original work by Carroll) are in the public domain. Which does not mean that works created based on them (like the Alice movie, or Katie’s art) are in the public domain.
I’m looking forward to the day when all legal battles are settled via reblogs on Tumblr…
Ernest Hemingway once won a bet by crafting a six-word short story, that can make people cry. Here it is.
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why Hemingway is one of (if not THE) most powerful authors I’ve ever studied.
I remember this.
I don’t get it….oh….OH.
My English teacher had us write 6-word short stories using this beautiful piece of writing as a template.
Mine was: “He hanged from his boyfriend’s belt.”
Is it bad that she cried?
This part always gets me, not just because of the situation but because of Oliver. Just think - that really is his brother lying on the floor, not just another actor. He’s not just George seeing Fred, he’s Oliver seeing James. It’s not just a role he’s playing, and that’s what makes it almost unbearable to watch.
LEAVE ME ALONE TO SOB IN A CORNER.
I read somewhere they could only do this scene half a dozen times or so because it was so emotionally draining for Oliver.
AHH SHIT PEOPLE WHOEVER MADE THIS BURN IN FUCKING HELL
reminding people that this happened
NO TEARS GO AWAY
FUCK YOU TEARS
I’m not crying, I just have a whole fucking rainforest stuck in my eye
Can I cry now? Okay.
