NRA Values are a health risk to America’s youth.
In the following decade violent crime in the UK would skyrocket 77% leaving citizens of the UK with no way to defend themselves in what would become known as “The Violent Crime Capital of Europe.” The UK would gain a rate of violent crime several times higher than that of the US and would continue to fall apart as lawmakers scrambled to ban more and more items.
Revisionism and lack of context are a health risk to the youth of not just America but every state that would steal the rights of its citizens overnight.
Except, you’re wrong:
Gun supporters lying to back up their claims. Nothing new. Always disgusting.
Teachers are often unaware of the gender distribution of talk in their classrooms. They usually consider that they give equal amounts of attention to girls and boys, and it is only when they make a tape recording that they realize that boys are dominating the interactions. Dale Spender, an Australian feminist who has been a strong advocate of female rights in this area, noted that teachers who tried to restore the balance by deliberately ‘favouring’ the girls were astounded to find that despite their efforts they continued to devote more time to the boys in their classrooms. Another study reported that a male science teacher who managed to create an atmosphere in which girls and boys contributed more equally to discussion felt that he was devoting 90 per cent of his attention to the girls. And so did his male pupils. They complained vociferously that the girls were getting too much talking time.
In other public contexts, too, such as seminars and debates, when women and men are deliberately given an equal amount of the highly valued talking time, there is often a perception that they are getting more than their fair share. Dale Spender explains this as follows:
“The talkativeness of women has been gauged in comparison not with men but with silence. Women have not been judged on the grounds of whether they talk more than men, but of whether they talk more than silent women.”
In other words, if women talk at all, this may be perceived as ‘too much’ by men who expect them to provide a silent, decorative background in many social contexts.
I’m glad there’s finally a term for this type of asshole.
Scumbag Baby Boomer memes are the greatest.
What piqued Miller’s interest was how “understanding” and “helpful” Sherlock was, traits the actor believes were rarely communicated. “In the books, I found him to be a much more understanding guy. I feel that he really likes people a little bit more than I had seen recently — not that he can necessarily communicate that very well. He likes the underdog, and he likes people who are downtrodden, who are having a hard time. He generally wants to help. I found him to be a much more helpful person, so I tried to put a bit of that in, even though he doesn’t quite pull it off.” [x]
There’s a new trend taking over the social media pages of young British Muslims, and it’s targeted right at the Islamic State.
As Mic has previously reported, there’s something troubling about calling this terrorist group the “Islamic State,” since they do not accurately represent Islam or Islamic beliefs, but a twisted and perverted interpretation of the global religion.
So to combat this, young activists, led by Britain’s Active Change charity, are telling the terrorists to stop acting under the banner of Islam by circulating the hashtag #NotInMyName and calling out the group for “hiding behind a false Islam.”
I am so fucking sick of this
I am sick to fucking death of it
I’m sick of the fact that western islamophobia has reached such a stage that Muslims have to constantly reassure you bigots that we’re not terrorists and don’t go home planning to bring down western society any time there is any self-styled jihadist group starts committing the most unspeakable atrocities.
Why do we have to do this?
Every single fucking time, we have to actively denounce every single bomb and every single bullet fired in the Muslim world lest it be used as proof of our inherent violence and brutality.
We don’t want to do this; we don’t want to engage in these kinds of campaigns and don’t want to have to constantly reassure you close-minded fucks that we have no plans for violent proselytisation.
This is YOUR damn problem. It’s YOUR fault that you can’t look at us without seeing terrorists.
I’m sick of apologetically pandering to non-Muslims in the west and I’m sick of being expected to be constantly wearing a hangdog expression whenever this happens.
YOU are the bigots that create fear and paranoia around Muslims and around Muslims exclusively.
Where is the call for every single Sri Lankan to denounce the Tamil Tigers?
Are the Irish constantly demanded to apologise for the actions of the IRA in the past?
Is every single Jewish person called upon to actively criticise Israel for one of the longest running genocides of modern times?
Which other group is considered to be little more than a group of pseudo-sleeper agents waiting to pounce upon the ‘hospitality’ of western nations and usher in a world where non-Muslims are treated as Muslims are treated now?
I am sick to the absolute back teeth of you people.
