I just want to bring this back
while we’re pretending girls in nerd culture don’t have it bad

NATALIE PORTMAN was accused of being a “fake nerd girl”
THIS IS HOW FAR THE IGNORANCE GOES
IT GOES THIS FAR 

holy shit

forgive me for the random reblog but I hadn’t seen this before and just, wow. I am kind of speechless.

THAT JUST SHOWS HOW FAKE SHE IS THOUGH.

SHE WASN’T EVEN REALLY PADME.  SHE WAS PRETENDING.

Anonymous said:  when talking about sexism/racism/homophobia/etc/etc to people, i often hear the phrase "just because you're offended, doesn't mean you're right." what's the best response to this?

fuckingrapeculture:

Just because you don’t experience the oppression, doesn’t mean it isn’t real. Or a punch in the face is good too.

A poster on Reddit asks: What are two events that took place in the same time in history but don’t seem like they would have?

Spain was still a fascist dictatorship when Microsoft was founded.

There were no classes in…

I feel like this is the reason everyone thinks history is boring when you are growing up.  We teach you dates and sequences of event within a narrow location of the world.  If you are lucky, your teacher instructions you in a little culture and political intrigue.  (I loved learning about the politics leading up to and after WWI and WWII.  It gave the list of dates meaning.)  However, unless you have a magical brain that can line up the dates correctly in your mind, you don’t realize what concurrent world events occur.  You miss out on learning what worldly historical figures are contemporaries.  We could be teaching the geopolitical ramifications of the destruction of the Byzantine Empire by the Ottoman Empire.  Instead every kid in the US know that “in 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue.”  History isn’t boring. We just teach it like it is.  We will just end the rant here before I get carried away.

Now that’s how you do 3D on Tumblr.

It has a fucking shadow.

This is the best 3D gif, I’ve seen a lot, and this wins by a mile
