Once again, Caucasian does not mean white, and using it to mean white is actually racist.

There are real Caucasian people who live in the Caucasus region, and they are not white.

i’m watching Stephen Fry in America (also for some reason I can’t italicize that cause the bar isn’t showing up so now that will bug me forever) and no one so far seems to recognize him even though he just presented a bunch of people with a ben and jerry’s flavor he made named Even Stephen…

On Saturday, Doctor Who returns, kicking off the second part of the seventh series with a James-Bond inspired episode that sees the Doctor and Clara whizzing round London on a motorbike. Which is exciting if you like interesting drama with witty banter and thoughtful concepts. But less exciting if you like interesting dramas that include women on their writing teams.

Because season seven of Doctor Who will feature no female scribes at all. Not in the bombastic dinosaurs and cowboys episodes that aired last year, and not in any of the new episodes we’re about to receive. In fact, Doctor Who hasn’t aired an episode written by a woman since 2008, 60 episodes ago. There hasn’t been a single female-penned episode in the Moffat era, and in all the time since the show was rebooted in 2005 only one, Helen Raynor, has ever written for the show.

Why Doctor Who needs more female writers (via themostfeminist)

Dramatist and author Stella Duffy – who has noted the absence of women writers, and indeed directors, from Doctor Who on her blog – thinks that there needs to be a conscious effort to recruit writers from outside the usual small pool of male writers. “Try harder. Stop assuming that men can do the job well enough. If women are saying they feel left out (and they do), if women are saying they feel marginalised (and they do), if women are saying they do not see their voices on screen … Listen to them and do something about it,” Duffy says.

“We can knock and knock, but if they won’t let us in, we’ll never get to see how big the Tardis really might be inside. Right now, the Tardis only holds men, so maybe it’s not that big, after all.”

6 Things That Happened While Y'all Were Preoccupied with Gay Marriage

6 Things That Happened While Y’all Were Preoccupied With Gay Marriage

March 28, 2013

by Mia McKenzie

Over the last couple of days, many people around the country have been caught-up in the whole same-sex marriage drama that’s currently taking place in the Supreme Court. As someone who doesn’t personally or politically feel connected to so-called ‘marriage equality’ and, frankly, can’t fathom so much time and energy and money being poured into getting one more privilege for one group of people— especially since the people within that group who will benefit the most are mostly very privileged already—at the expense of countless other really important and much more urgent issues facing the queer community and our society as a whole (bullying and suicides of queer and queer-perceived youth, violence against transgender people, invisibilization of disabled queers and queers of color and disabled queers of color, mass incarceration, etc.), I’m just going to save myself a headache and skip the part where I argue for a more inclusive and intersectional movement and instead let y’all know what you may have missed while you were busy being obsessed with single-issue gay politics.

Click on the link for the list.

While the Monsanto I’m still out on—why are people so afraid of “GM” foods?—it’s concerning that everything else on this list is ignored. 

The revolution will be intersectional, or there will be no revolution at all. 

Some of you just. Aren't. Getting it.

If you call yourself “body positive”, it is imperative that you do NOT:

  • make fun of fat bodies
  • make fun of thin bodies
  • make fun of muscular bodies
  • make fun of bodies without a lot of muscle
  • make fun of breasts or nipples
  • make fun of penis length or girth or shape or color
  • make fun of labia length or color or shape
  • make fun of genitals that weren’t assigned at birth
  • make fun of freckles or moles or acne
  • make fun of rashes or redness
  • make fun of clothing choices
  • make fun of haircut or style or color or texture
  • make fun of piercings or plugs
  • make fun of tattoos or scarification
  • make fun of stretchmarks or cellulite
  • make fun of “bad” teeth
  • make fun of birth defects
  • make fun of food choices
  • make fun of makeup applications
  • make fun of the lightness of skin
  • make fun of the darkness of skin
  • make fun of physical disabilities
  • make fun of mental illnesses
  • make fun of fat rolls
  • make fun of visible ribs
  • make fun of self harm injuries or scars
  • make fun of lots of body hair
  • make fun of the lack of body hair

Basically, just don’t shame anyone else’s appearance. Ever. It’s okay to have a preference (or 2 or 3 or 50.) It’s not okay to insult people who don’t match your preferences. Especially if you plaster “BODY POSITIVE” and “SELF LOVE” Blingee’s all over your page.
