A 14 year-old boy was recently raped at knife-point by a 20 year-old woman. When the story broke, it was primarily men who claimed he should have enjoyed it. It was feminists who validated his pain and spoke in support of him.
This is why we need feminism.
If you don’t know what’s happening in New Zealand right now, here’s a quick summary:
Investigative journalist Nicky Hager released a book called Dirty Politics. It’s based on a large number of emails and Facebook messages stolen by a hacker from a right-wing blogger called Whale Oil. The hacker passed on the hacked files to Hager anonymously. The book gives details about the links between the National Party (the main party in government) and right-wing bloggers who have run smear campaigns, attacks and spread slander online about opposition politicians and parties. In one case, classified security documents were declassified and given to bloggers to use in attacks against opposition politicians. In another, a Minister gave personal details about a government employee to the blog Whale Oil for an attack which resulted in that government employee getting death threats. The Prime Minister’s staff also stole information from an opposition party’s computer and gave the information to bloggers to use in attacks on the main opposition party. Basically all this shit has been revealed about how the government has been acting dirty to kill off its opposition and secure another election win. But now the book has been released, journalists are just following around the Prime Minister asking him questions about the book to the point where he is visibly angry, walking out of interviews and basically falling apart. What’s more, the actual stolen emails are being released slowly, day-by-day by an anonymous person on Twitter. So every day there is new stuff coming out and it’s a big shitstorm and it’s great.

Let the record show that the canon ending was really abrupt and didn’t make any sense.
Also, this is the second time they’ve messed up Terezi and roleplaying.

i don’t think they would puff up like that when threatened but it would be cute.
i don’t know what they are grievously offended about because i just like drawing these sorts of faces but my guess is that it’s probably something awful and it probably involves equius

Luzerna never disappoints, holy cow those EXPRESSIONS
I’m actually crying right now. Something that seemed impossible for me might actually happen in the future. I just hope this isn’t repealed by the time I feel comfortable enough in my life to transition. I know this doesn’t seem important to most people but this just gave me another reason to keep moving forward with my life. 🙏
I HOPE THIS IS A THING FOR MY AMERICAN FRIENDS AHH!!!

but you don’t act black
Changyuraptor yangi is a newly-described microraptorine dromaeosaur dinosaur from the early Cretaceous (Yixian formation) of Liaoning, China.
The animal would have been around 4 feet long in life, and its fossil shows that it was covered in feathers — including, as in its smaller cousin Microraptor, a pair of “leg wings” represented by long paired pennaceous feathers on the metatarsals and tibiotarsus. One of Changyuraptor's most unique features is its voluminous tail feathers, and these feathers constitute the longest of any known non-avian dinosaur, with the most distal retrices reaching around 30 cm in length.
Changyuraptor is also by far the largest “four-winged” dinosaur known, and while this might not be as big of a deal as it sounds (given that there aren’t very many “four-winged” dinosaurs), it does show that small size wasn’t necessarily the gatekeeper to certain volant adaptations. I personally doubt that this animal was doing anything approaching powered flight, but the long tail feathers and multiple sets of long, well-developed lifting surfaces may have been a boon to gliding and controlled descent. The exceptionally long tail feathers therefore might have been used as a sort of “pitch control” device, wherein a large, relatively heavy animal would have needed especially fine-tuned control over rapid falls onto prey or in safe landings from higher ground. As Buzz Lightyear would say, “This isn’t flying, it’s falling with style!”
