I'm Tina, I'm just your average highschool blogger, watching things, saving posts, the the tumblr business.
when rape is the girls fault
- when she is the rapist
when rape is the guys fault
- when he is the rapist
But women can never be careful enough, can we? If we take naked pictures of ourselves, we’re asking for it. If someone can manage to hack into our accounts, we’re asking for it. If we’re not wearing anti-rape nail polish, we’re asking for it. If we don’t take self-defence classes, we’re asking for it. If we get drunk, we’re asking for it. If our skirts are too short, we’re asking for it. If we pass out at a party, we’re asking for it. If we are not hyper-vigilant every single fucking second of every single fucking day, we are asking for it. Even when we are hyper-vigilant, we’re still asking for it. The fact that we exist is asking for it.
This is what rape culture looks like.
This is what misogyny looks like.
Though the majority of the villains are men, Orphan Black is not the story of women vs. men. (Even Helena, who represents the most radical form of feminism, sweetly dubs Felix “brother sestra.”) Instead, Orphan Black is about women vs. the system. While the men are nothing more than empty suits, the misogynist system they’re a part of gives them power. Leekie’s idea to reduce women to man-made synthetic wombs, Duncan’s project of creating an endless supply of “little girls,” Henrik’s religious rape — these ideas, not the men, are the real threats. And since the men who run these projects have wealth and institution on their side, they are able to provide real road blocks to the clones, even though the women are far more intelligent and proficient.
Thank you so much for Crashcourse. As a high school history teacher, it's often hard to find resources for students that are high quality AND that the students enjoy, particularly my AP level students. Have you gotten feedback from teachers? Have they shared how they are using the videos? Ps- please thank Sarah for the art Assignment. It made for a wonderful prompt in my Humanities course!
That’s all so great to hear! We have a group of teachers we work with periodically to get feedback, especially now that we’re developing resource materials around the videos—essays, collections of primary sources, worksheets, and so on. (Those should start debuting at the beginning of next year.) We’re able to invest in non-video resources thanks to Crash Course’s Subbable subscribers, so thanks!
If you’re an educator who’d like to be on that list, you can email us with the subject line TEACHER at hankandjohn-at-gmail.
Thanks for watching Crash Course and The Art Assignment!
it seems that everyone i’m friends with is better friends with someone else and that really fucking sucks
- wicked hella music
- it made me cry more than once
- "we are groot"
- the queen of sci-fi and chris pratt
- basically it was just a band of misfits, not heroes, saving a planet
- tiny dancing groot
- it never took itself too seriously, and even though it was an action movie, it was still funny and heartfelt
- there was about 12% of a romantic subplot, but it never went very far
- just groot in general
Re: your "rule about naked people" -- How about people who take nude photos of themselves not be stupid and use storage devices that can be hacked, like cloud storage (or take any risks close to that)? Just HOW much personal responsibility does your generation need to shed before you get it through your thick skulls that it only costs $20 for a decent external hard drive these days? :|

Steve may have good intentions but he is inconsiderate and selfish when it comes to others
Cecil cares about other people and is social and cordial but is stubborn in his ideals and is easy to anger
characters are multi-dimensional. UvU
I once went to the Renaissance Fair dressed as Marty McFly, and nobody got the joke.
That will forever be one of the most disappointing moments in my life.This is my favorite photoset rn
I totally get this guy. A whole fair of nerds and no one got a awesome 80s pop culture reference. Shame. The faces are amazing.
Watched Back to the Future yesterday ahah
I love this way too much.
Imagine that at the end of Dumbledore’s speech at the beginning of the year, he asks if there are any questions, and one first year muggleborn kid raises his hand, whips out a smart phone and asks for the wifi password.
And then Dumbledore just casually says “Sherbet lemon, with a capital S”, and commences the feast like it’s no big deal while the non-muggleborns think WIFI is some sort of secret society.
