pretty much there are only four types of comic book fans here on tumblr at this point

there are comic book fans in general

there are dc fans 

there are marvel fans

and then there are the marvel fans who gotta make everything a competition but pretty much shit talks dc without even having a clue what’s going on with dc and is pretty much being an ignorant shit just to make marvel superior

  • marvel: [has a black man walk in the background of the shot of the 6 white avengers]
  • marvel fandom: REPRESENTATION.
  • marvel fandom: DO YOU SEE THAT.
  • marvel fandom: DC, WHERE YOU AT.
  • marvel fandom: YOUR MOVE, DC.
  • marvel fandom: ON YOUR LEFT, DC.

An “egalitarian” is someone who, realizing that a scale is imbalanced because there are six pounds on one side and twelve on the other, seeks to correct the imbalance by adding six pounds to both sides.

Nope!
Brain studies find that concern for justice and equality is linked to logic, not emotion.
By Lisa Wade, PhD
A new study finds that people with high “justice sensitivity” are using logic, not emotions.  Subjects were put in a fMRI machine, one that measures ongoing brain activity and shown videos of people acting kindly or cruelly toward a homeless person.
Some respondents reacted more strongly than others — hence the high versus low justice sensitivity — and an analysis of the high sensitivity individuals’ brain activity showed that they were processing the images in the parts of the brain where logic and rationality live.   “Individuals who are sensitive to justice and fairness do not seem to be emotionally driven,” explained one of the scientists, “Rather, they are cognitively driven.”
Activists aren’t angry, they reasonably object to unjust circumstances that they understand all too well.

  • About 33% of men, and 38% of women […] felt both as a man and as a woman.
  • 41% of men and 46.8% of women experience themselves to some extent as two genders.
  • About 30% of men and 45% of women expressed a dislike of their sexed body.
  • 36.6% of our [non-trans] subjects reported that they sometimes feel as the ‘other’ gender, 63.7% reported that they sometimes wish to be the ‘other’ gender, 49% did not always wear clothes ‘appropriate’ to their sex, and 41.9% were sometimes discontent with their sexed body.

this didn’t get enough attention first time around tbh. I was shocked when I first saw this.

Those are amazing findings.

being trans is a feel and anyone can know it

">15-Year-Old African Kid Tells Madonna To Go ‘Have Sex’ with Herself

almightykushlord:

Dakarai Molokomme, a 15-year-old starving child from a small village in Zimbabwe, has just told , one of the most famous pop stars in the world, to  and f*** , the local media are reporting exclusively.

“Yes, it’s true, I told Madonna to go f*** herself. Do you want to know why?” Dakarai asked. “It’s the same thing every time with these snobby rich Americans. Every once in a while they come to show us their support for the so-called eradication of poverty by adopting a child from a starving family, but they actually do more harm than good. Transracial international adoptions are part of the white savior industrial complex,” Dakarai explained.

In further discussions with journalists from the media, the  stated that “none of the children here actually want to be taken away from their family and friends so they can be displayed as some kind of trophy in the homes of self-righteous singers or actors who want to score some points with the media and Oprah.”

“If they really want to help us, they should get Big Pharma to ship us some anti-retroviral drugs for the AIDS epidemic, or build schools and hospitals. If they don’t want to do that, then they can all go f** themselves!” the child told reporters.

The 15-year-old also stated that he would say the same thing to any one of those American or European “faux humanitarian posers”, except for Bono, whom he said he would also kick in the groin.

“Bono’s efforts to save the African savage from itself prove that the colonial imperative is alive and well,” Dakarai said as he walked with other village children collecting sticks to build a tree fort.

THIS IS THE RAWEST 15 YEAR OLD ALIVE
