Cho Chang is like fifteen when a boy tries to change the subject and she replies “But I need to talk about it,” which 1) HERO, LIFE GOALS, and 2) she then adds “Surely you need to talk about it too” like she’s worried about this dude’s mental health while also pleading for a kindred spirit. Protect this child.

*hackles rise towards anyone who shits on Cho*

"Never be afraid to apologize to your child. If you lose your temper and say something in anger that wasn’t meant to be said, apologize. Children need to know that adults can admit when they are wrong."

American Humane Society (via maninsun)

This is so, so important.

"We tell our women “get into science, get into math, get into the pipeline.” Who wants to be in a pipeline full of acid?"

Alicia Menendez - The View

I’m at the car dealership, waiting for my service recall to be completed, and this statement caught the attention of every woman in the room. Unsurprisingly, they all nodded in assent while the few men in the room looked uncomfortable.

The point is valid: even if access to STEM and other male dominated fields is made available, we need to do something about the culture in the field. Access to a pipeline full of acid, while it is still access, serves to maintain inequality.

so my sister works in STEM & if you talked to her for like 5 minutes she can tell you how true this is. it’s fucking poisonous

red flags

moopflop:

  • calling the legitimate anger of oppressed people “drama” or “hate”
  • referring to allocation of human rights as simply “politics”
  • referring to basic human empathy as “political correctness”
  • the childlike refusal to admit mistakes and throwing a literal tantrum
  • "it’s just my opinion"
