This is in my Economics textbook

This is fucked up

if you couldn’t SEE how fucked up this is, let me put this into even more perspective for you.a male with no high school education still makes more than a female with 9th-12th grade education (no diploma).a male who is a high school graduate still makes more than a female with an associate’s degree.a male with a bachelor’s degree only makes about ~$2000 less than a female with a fucking doctorate’s degree.tell me again why feminism isn’t important.

I am personally offended to the highest degree

"The wage gap doesn’t really exist." Fucking yeah right.

hmmm

Now let’s break it down by race.

this is why women outnumber men in college. A vast majority of women need college for a higher income vs men.

Learnt an interesting thing today on this arabic course,
The original Arabic number system looked like this, the one we now use.
It was designed so each character had the corresponding number of angles to the number, so the number 1 has 1 angle, 2 has 2 angles, 3 has 3, 0 has none etc…
It is so obvious now, I’ve always assumed its one of those things that just is, with no logical explanation, but here it is, perfectly simple and satisfying

My jaw is legit on the floor right about now :D

    acid attacks in pakistan

    This assault is a common form of “punishment” not only in Pakistan, but also in India, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Vietnam, China, throughout the Middle East, and in some Western countries. Women live in fear that should she disobey her father’s will, speak her mind, attend school, refuse a marriage proposal, deny sex, or exercise her free will, she will be punished for it. She will be forced to wear the scars for the rest of her life, to remind her of the “shame” she has brought upon herself, and be shunned by her society.

    Women in developing nations are not blind. They have realized they don’t have to submit. They don’t have to obey. They can speak their mind, and they can do as they please. This disgusts the men, whose need for power and domination reaches back centuries, and this is how they enforce their control. 

    The practice has slowed in some countries, but in others, it’s on the rise. Men and children are also victims of these attacks. If you’re like me, and this is breaking your heart, there are ways you can help. Obviously, spreading the word is one of them, but donations are crucial. Many people in these countries don’t have access to the proper medical treatment or shelters they need. Donations help pay for bandages, medicine, housing, and training physicians. If you’re in a position to help, please consider it.

    I know that to many of us, these people are far away, and seem unreachable. But they wake up every morning, just like we all do, and look in the mirror, like we all do. The fact that they don’t give up, that they keep going, shows unbelievable strength. I’m from America, where we obsess about our looks, and women are forced to think about our hair, makeup, and weight constantly. We can’t go into a shop, turn on the radio, or go online without being bombarded with ways to improve our looks. I’d like to think this will make a few of us stop and consider, even for a few moments, that there is someone who would be glad to have an option.

    Check out what the United Nations Entity for Gender Quality (or UN Women) are up to. Help women around the world stay positive, hopeful, and keep fighting.

    this brought me to tears. if you can help, please do.

    I want to be their friends T^T

    The Hulk ain’t never lied.

    I can’t even express how much respect I have for Mark Ruffalo.  The dude’s on the US terrorism watchlist for fuck’s sake.

    Omg, it’s true

    He was put on the terrorist watch list for backing a documentary that shits all over capitalism and corporate greed and is pro environment?? Like this one guy set his fucking WATER on fire - that’s some Jesus stuff but nah son this flammable water is coming out of this guys tap and his family and neighbors drink it and the doccumentary is speaking against fracking but? AND MARK WAS PUT ON THE TERRORIST LIST FOR SUPPORTING THIS DOCUMENTARY I MEAN ‘MURICA tho. 

    I love Mark Ruffalo. I follow him here guys and he posts some fucking awesome shit. There’s a reason I love Hulk now that he’s played him! I never cared for the character but he just did it good and is just generally a fucking awesome human.

    Re blog every time.

The soldiers, of course, wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants. Ultimately, she was caught, however, and the Nazi’s broke both of her legs and arms and beat her severely.Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she had smuggled out, In a glass jar that she buried under a tree in her back yard.

    soulrevision:

    My sis Rell (Twitter: Awkward_Duck, Tumblr: swearimnotangry), did some investigative work today and found that Donald Sterling has ties to private prison investments, which led the two of us to an excellent discussion about the private prison industry.

    This is just the tip of the iceberg. With contract mandates specifying 90% occupancy rates, private prisons feed directly into our problem with mass incarceration.

    The private prison industry has become a lucrative business with some of our financial institutions heavily investing in them (Not to mention the music industry invests in them also, but I wont go there today). 

    Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) & GEO are the nations leading providers of correctional services. CCA has flourished as a business and has done so well ensuring that states maintain that 90% occupancy rate, that last year their Board of Directors authorized a $675 MILLION dividend to its shareholders. -_____-

    I don’t even need to tell you who these prison beds are occupied by as I’m sure you all know the stats and demographics, but feel free to check out the links below.

    Financial institutions that invest in private prisons: http://bit.ly/14rfwu9

    CCA authorizes $675 million dividend to shareholders: http://yhoo.it/1ml7V4u

    CCA being sued for widespread abuse in prisons: http://bit.ly/18uso3n

    there is also no real push to curb this by average majority white americans and non-black people because antiblackness pushes the desire for prisons, period. they want Black people in jail, they want us enslaved and they dont care if mostly rich whites are the ones making all the money and destroying the world doing it as long as Black people are enslaved, locked up and below the rest of them. it’s fucked up.
