Fandometrics In Depth: Feminism Edition

Tumblr has always been a place where feminists could connect and speak freely. And as Tumblr has grown, so have the allied communities and the size of the conversation. From 2013 to 2015, year-over-year growth in the number of original posts tagged #feminism increased at an average rate of 4.22%.

That changed in 2016. As Tumblr discussed the US presidential election and its impact on women’s rights, access to healthcare and the importance of consent, the rate of original posts tagged #feminism grew 20%, five times the growth of the previous three years. Looking at the entire ecosystem of Tumblr tags, original posts and reblogs about #feminism accounted for triple the amount of conversation it did in 2015.

2016 also saw a change in Tumblr’s understanding of what feminism means.

The term intersectionality describes the overlapping systems of oppression at play in society—it’s the idea that gender inequality, racism, class status, and other injustices are inseparable from one another and can’t be studied in isolation.

Between 2014 and 2016 there was a modest increase in engagement around #intersectionality. Original posts increased 13%, while searches increased 44%. But then came the Women’s March. On January 20th, 2017, engagements around #intersectionality spiked 5191% from just two days before. Since then, the whole tone of the #feminism conversation on Tumblr has changed.

In 2017 so far, people are talking about intersectional systems of oppression 21% more than they have in the last four years combined.

How does that change in tone manifest itself? Here’s a sampling of posts that have gone viral since the March:

Continuing the conversation

If you’re interested in joining the feminist conversation on Tumblr, there are tons of places to start. In addition to the #feminism and #intersectionality tags, you can head to tags like #wage gap and #pro choice to learn more about specific issues. There are also dozens of Tumblrs that dive deep into the conversation:

  • Feminist Frequency (@femfreq), a place to talk about feminism in gaming
  • Celebrating Amazing Women (@celebratingamazingwomen), which highlights women who have changed history on their birthdays
  • Whovian Feminism (@whovianfeminism), which looks at inequality through a fannish lens
  • Empower. Volunteer. Unite. (@ucf-now), the official Tumblr of the University of Central Florida’s National Organization for Women chapter, and
  • Action (@action), our hub to help connect you to the resources you need to become an agent of change.

Photo of young woman smiling down at far-right protester in England goes viral

  • As citizens around the world face the threat of far-right extremism, one photo from a demonstration in England has captured one woman’s defiance in the face of those who seek to oppress her.
  • The now-viral photo shows a young woman standing up against a protestor from the far-right English Defence League on Sunday during a rally in Birmingham, England. 

  • “Who looks like they have power here?” Birmingham Labour MP Jess Phillips, who first shared the photo, asked in a tweet, which has since been retweeted more than 6,000 times. Read more. (4/9/2017 3:44 PM)

100 Photography Tips - Eric Kim

I read this multiple times a week.

1. Just because someone has an expensive camera doesn’t mean that they’re a good photographer.
2. Always shoot in RAW. Always.
3. Prime lenses help you learn to be a better photographer.
4. Photo editing is an art in itself
5. The rule of thirds works 99% of the time.
6. Macro photography isn’t for everybody.
7. UV filters work just as well as lens caps.
8. Go outside and shoot photos rather than spending hours a day on photography forums.
9. Capture the beauty in the mundane and you have a winning photograph.
10. Film isn’t better than digital.
11. Digital isn’t better than film.
12. There is no “magic” camera or lens.
13. Better lenses don’t give you better photos.
14. Spend less time looking at other people’s work and more time shooting your own.
15. Don’t take your DSLR to parties.
16. Being a photographer is sexy.
17. Making your photos b/w doesn’t automatically make them “artsy”
18. People will always discredit your work if you tell them you “photoshop” your images. Rather, tell them that you process them in the “digital darkroom”.
19. You don’t need to take a photo of everything.
20. Have at least 2 backups of all your images. Like they say in war, two is one, one is none.
21. Ditch the neck strap and get a handstrap.
22. Get closer when taking your photos, they often turn out better.
23. Be a part of a scene while taking a photo; not a voyeur.
24. Taking a photo crouched often make your photos look more interesting.
25. Worry less about technical aspects and focus more on compositional aspects of photography.
26. Tape up any logos on your camera with black gaffers tape- it brings a lot less attention to you.
27. Always underexpose by 2/3rds of a stop when shooting in broad daylight.
28. The more photos you take, the better you get.
29. Don’t be afraid to take several photos of the same scene at different exposures, angles, or apertures.
30. Only show your best photos.
31. A point-and-shoot is still a camera.
32. Join an online photography forum.
33. Critique the works of others.
34. Think before you shoot.
35. A good photo shouldn’t require explanation (although background information often adds to an image). *
36. Alcohol and photography do not mix well.
37. Draw inspiration from other photographers but never worship them.
38. Grain is beautiful.
39. Ditch the photo backpack and get a messenger bag. It makes getting your lenses and camera a whole lot easier.
40. Simplicity is key.
41. The definition of photography is: “painting with light.” Use light in your favor.
42. Find your style of photography and stick with it.
43. Having a second monitor is the best thing ever for photo processing.
44. Silver EFEX pro is the best b/w converter.
45. Carry your camera with you everywhere. Everywhere.
46. Never let photography get in the way of enjoying life.
47. Don’t pamper your camera. Use and abuse it.
48. Take straight photos.
49. Shoot with confidence.
50. Photography and juxtaposition are best friends.
51. Print out your photos big. They will make you happy.
52. Give your photos to friends.

56. Go out and take photos with (a) friend(s).
57. Join a photo club or start one for yourself.
58. Photos make great presents.
59. Taking photos of strangers is thrilling.
60. Candid>Posed.
61. Natural light is the best light.
62. 35mm (on full frame) is the best “walk-around” focal length.
63. Don’t be afraid to bump up your ISO when necessary.
64. You don’t need to always bring a tripod with you everywhere you go (hell, I don’t even own one).
65. It is always better to underexpose than overexpose.
66. Shooting photos of homeless people in an attempt to be “artsy” is exploitation.
67. You will find the best photo opportunities in the least likely situations.
68. Photos are always more interesting with the human element included.
69. You can’t “photoshop” bad images into good ones.
70. Nowadays everybody is a photographer.
71. You don’t need to fly to Paris to get good photos; the best photo opportunities are in your backyard.
72. People with DSLRS who shoot portraits with their grip pointed downwards look like morons.
73. Cameras as tools, not toys.
74. In terms of composition, photography and painting aren’t much different.
75. Photography isn’t a hobby- it’s a lifestyle.
76. Make photos, not excuses.
77. Be original in your photography. Don’t try to copy the style of others.

90. Learn how to read a histogram.
91. A noisy photo is better than a blurry one.
92. Don’t be afraid to take photos in the rain.
93. Learn how to enjoy the moment, rather than relentlessly trying to capture the perfect picture of it.
94. Never take photos on an empty stomach.
95. You will discover a lot about yourself through your photography.

97. Never stop taking photos

99. Capture the decisive moment
100. Write your own list.

This photo, dated April 9, 1942, shows the USS California being  navigated into the drydock to be repaired after being refloated. The notation “Isn’t She Beautiful?” was most probably made by Captain Homer N. Wallin of the Salvage Division.

Much of the initial salvage effort at Pearl Harbor was overseen by Wallin, who was present during the attack. He was appointed to command of the Salvage Division at the Pearl Harbor Navy Yard. 

Wallin worked in consultation with others including Captain Edward L. “Ned” Cochrane of the Navy’s Bureau of Ships. Wallin sent routine reports on the operations that included the status of the current work with any significant findings. The reports from Wallin and many others were organized into files for each ship. 

Of the ships that sunk, the USS California (BB-44) was the first to be refloated. It had settled into the mud below it, up to its superstructure and initial photos reflected this. (Other ships that had not sunk, but were only damaged already had repairs underway).

I think we get a better time frame from this episode. Basically Greg met Rose when Sour Cream was conceived. We can say Sour Cream is about 8 maybe less maybe more in this photo, so we can find out Greg and Rose were together about 8ish years more or less and Greg was quite young when he met Rose, so he can’t be that old when he had Steven.
The wiki says Greg was 22 when he played in front of Rose, so about 8 years later he has Steven, which would make him about 30? And by the time Steven is 14 that would make Greg about 44?

If Naruto characters had Tumblr: Part 2

Part 2 of 2! What if various Naruto characters had Tumblr blogs? What would their usernames be, and what would they blog about; if at all? Part 1.

1. Naruto: Username - NineTailsOfRamen

Naruto would predominately blog about ramen. He would make sure to set up a queue to post or reblog a new photo every couple of hours with uplifting captions underneath them. He would also rave constantly about how everyone should eat at Ichiraku. 

Post 15: Man this is making me suuuper hungry

Post 27: Ate this bad boy today!! Extra Chashu and naruto!! (that’s also my name heheh)

Post 56: Guys guys you NEED to eat at Ichiraku okay he is like the GOD OF RAMEN

2. Sakura: Username - PinkHairDontCare

Sakura would post motivational things such as body workouts, words of advice and things to lift peoples spirits. She would also (unknowingly) reblog Konan’s photos of flowers from time to time. 

Post 34: Here’s my daily routine for workouts in the morning! Try and add a few extra push ups or sits ups if you can manage it!

Post 44: DON’T GIVE UP. You can DO IT. There is nothing in your way of achieving your goals except for you! I know you can do it!

Post 78: Super beautiful Sakura tree; much like myself! ;))

3. Sasuke: Username - saszuke

Sasuke would literally just post about his thoughts and feelings throughout the day. He would never reblog anything but rather upload his own photos of things like the sunrise or the sky during a thunderstorm. He has a feeling that all the lovely anon messages he’s getting are from Itachi but he can’t be sure. 

Post 6: Actually ate breakfast today. That’s a new one. I haven’t been committed to eating breakfast in a long time. Had eggs; they were alright.

Post 21: Here’s a photo I took last night; managed to capture some lightning during the storm. I feel it reflects my personality pretty well.

Post 50: To the anon who keeps sending me nice things; who are you??? Are you Itachi?? It’s kinda creeping me out tbh

4. Shikamaru: Username - StitchedDream

Shikamaru would be on Tumblr quite a bit when he’s bored. He would reblog pictures of the sky and super comfortable looking bedrooms or beds. He keeps promising his followers he’ll upload a selfie of himself but he’s too lazy to do it.

Post 40: These clouds are me. Not even joking

Post 67: I kinda just laid down today and didn’t get up for like 4 hours. I didn’t even sleep.

Post 89: I want ALL of these beds. Just one big room filled with beds. That’s the dream. 

5. Chouji: Username - FoodIsAlwaysMyMood

Chouji would of course blog about food. He mostly uploads his own photos of various places he goes and the food he eats there. He’s gained a huge following and always takes suggestions on what to try. 

Post 345: Tried the new BBQ chicken at my local BBQ place today! It was AMAZING. The texture was PERFECT. Here’s a photo!

Post 400: Someone suggested I give a miso based ramen a try; so I did! It was SO GOOD THANK YOU FOR SUGGESTING IT.

Post 567: Here’s a photoset of every meal I had this week! It looks like quite a lot now that I see it but everything was INCREDIBLY TASTY! Let me know which one is your fav!

6. Suigetsu: Username - ThinkingBoutH2Hoe

Suigetsu shit posts. A lot. And he doesn’t even care. His blog has no theme whatsoever; sometime he posts porn and sometimes he posts photos of birds. He follows Kisame and reblogs a lot of his posts about sharks too.

Post 198: REBLOG IF YOU ARE GAY, LOVE PEPE THE FROG OR LOVE TAKING THE SOULS OF THE INNOCENT

Post 444: Kisame Senpai this shark looks SO COOL YOU ARE THE COOLEST

Post 666: GUYS IT’S THE DEVIL POST HAHA I’M GONNA DIE

7. Rock Lee: Username - TheMostYouthful

Rock Lee obviously would post anything and everything to do with training and fitness. From reblogging fitness videos to uploading his own routine, he’s followed by heaps of people who look up to him. They get a bit weirded out when he posts a lot of close up photos of Gai, though.

Post 70: GOAL TODAY: TO DO 200 MORE PUSH UPS THAN USUAL!

Post 99: HERE’S A VIDEO OF MY WORK OUT TODAY!!! I SPED IT UP SO IT WOULDN’T BE AS LONG BUT ENJOY!

Post 111: THIS IS MY TEACHER MIGHTO GAI ISN’T HE THE GREATEST EVER

8. Gaara: Username - RedCactusPanda

Gaara doesn’t like telling anyone he has a Tumblr. He prefers to stay anonymous but LOVES posting about cacti and succulents. He always asks bigger blogs questions about how to look after his own and posts photo of his own secret cacti garden. 

Post 32: This little succulent has grown so much since I got him! I’ve named him after one of my friends; but not saying who!

Post 55: Someone suggested I would probably enjoy having some marimo’s so I got some! Here they are only two days after I got them and they are pretty cool looking :))

Post 70: Here’s my collection after 4 months. It’s grown a big bigger than I originally wanted but I love them all anyway!

9. Kiba: Username - 99PercentDog

10. Haku: Username - It’sAlwaysWinter

Haku is always posting his best selfies. He reblogs a lot of posts relating to snow and winter as well, but it’s mostly selfies. A lot of people think he’s a girl. He likes shutting down perverted men who message him. 

Post 106: Me today~ :)) I really like my hair in this pic

Post 142: Thanks to the kind anon who told me my eyes were beautiful, but not as beautiful as my face on the floor :))) you’re the man

Post 600: Oh yeah, by the way. I’m a guy. A dude. A male. Surprise!

anonymous asked:

5,6 and 44. 😃😃😃

Sorry for taking like ten thousand centuries to answer this :’)

5. Do you drink?

- I do drink, but only when I’m with my parents or with close friends :) It’s better to allow it in the house than rebelling and ending up trashed and not being responsible with alcohol.

I may or may not have a thing for Vodka and Whiskey 👌👅 

6. Do you smoke?

- Nope. And I never will.

Does it make me a hypocrite if I generally like the smell of cigarettes?

44. Do you have a tattoo?

This is a really old photo from my Facebook that I took since I don’t have any recent photos of me with my tattoo on my computer, but yeah. It’s a rose with a key and the word Mama spread across right underneath it :)
ISIS claims responsibility for Egyptian church attacks

Two Islamic State militants wearing suicide vests carried out the deadly church bombings in Egypt on Sunday that killed at least 44 people, the group said in a statement on Sunday that warned of future attacks.

The Alexandria bombing was carried out by an Islamic State militant it identified as Abu Al-Baraa Al-Masri, while the Tanta church bombing was carried out by an individual it named as Abu Ishaaq Al-Masri. (AP)

if u ever catch yourself thinking “I wish bap never filed that lawsuit” then watch the video of bap preforming Angel at the world kpop festival 2014 where daehyun had literally been pulled from the hospital not a few hours before, having that bandage on his wrist from where the IV was and himchan not being well enough to preform that he still had to sing his parts from backstage. Listen and read the lyrics of yongguks AM 4:44.

Tbh just find a picture of the boys at any point before filing the lawsuit and see how tired/un well they looked. Daehyun, being a literal ball of sunshine, lost his glow and hardly smiled any more and we know how depressed he got.

If you catch yourself thinking “bap lost a lot of fans” look at photos of them now, look at videos from their recent loes, vapp and airport photos. You’ll change and say “I’m glad they stood up for themselves” because if they didn’t file that lawsuit you can bet that the boys we met in 2012 would no longer be in there, rather there would be extremely depressed, tired and only a shell of who they truly are. Who cares if babyz left, what’s more important? Their health and happiness or the amount of fans they have? If our small fandom can love them as much as a huge one can then it’ll make up for it, I promise you.

45 Reasons Everyone Should Live Abroad Once

I found this on buzzfeed and I think it is spot on!

1. For the passport stamps.

2. For the stories.

3. For the authentic recipes.

4. And the local fast food.

5. And the chance to try a foreign menu in McDonald’s.

6. To feel lost and be OK with it.

7. To learn that some winters require a heavier coat than others.

8. And to learn that sometimes, sun cream isn’t optional.

9. So you can eat late, like the Spanish.

10. So you can roll your R’s like the Italians.

11. To question the culture that you were brought up in.

12. To respect the culture that you were brought up in.

13. So you can confidently direct tourists.

14. To experience bureaucracy in a different language.

15. To realise just how much you value your family.

16. And just how much you need your friends.

17. To learn how to make new friends.

18. To wonder how you didn’t know these new friends all your life.

19. To perfect the art of packing a home into two suitcases and a tote bag.

20. So you can say you did.

21. To be thankful for the existence of Skype and FaceTime.

22. To become skilled at sneaking excess luggage onto a plane.

23. To know where you’ve come from.

24. To know where you’re going.

25. To learn how exactly to serve absinthe.

26. To realise that no matter how lonely you are, you can get through this.

27. To see the sun set on the other side of the world.

28. To become adept at bargaining a taxi fare with only three phrases in that language.

29. To see the Northern Lights from your bedroom.

30. To see Venice from your window.

31. So you can distinguish Malbec from merlot.

32. And Glühwein from Glögg.

33. So you can have your own part of a new city.

34. To realise that you don’t need a common language to flirt.

35. To build your photo album for your grandchildren.

36. To fill your journal with memories.

37. To take pride in the moment, and not worry about documenting it.

38. To watch home sports in a different language.

39. To watch new sports and become obsessed.

40. To eat cold soup.

41. To drink hot whiskey.

42. To meet fascinating new people.

43. To realise that people might find you fascinating too.

44. So you can prove the guidebook right.

45. So you can prove the guidebook wrong.

I these are all fantastic reasons and very realistic.  I think number 26 is especially applicable to me.  I feel like nobody warned me that the hardest thing about living abroad wouldn’t be the language but the loneliness.  No matter how many people you meet or friends you make, you still have this feeling of being outside it all.  Which of course you are.  6 months down and 5 to go! If then next 5 are anything like the first 6 then I am in for a rough ride. 

I am so grateful that I was able to have this amazing experience, but my heart belongs to Chicago and I cannot wait to go home.

General Dwight D. Eisenhower meeting with men from Co. E, 2nd Battalion, 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment (Strike) 101st Airborne Division, just before they load up for the drop on Normandy, June 5, 1944. The majority of the men in this photo were killed or wounded in battle a few hours later.

They were designated in drop zone ‘A’ scheduled for jumping off at 00.48 hours 6/6/44. Although the 2nd Battalion 502nd PIR was dropped as a compact unit, it jumped on the wrong drop zone, while its commander, Lt Col. Steve A. Chappuis, came down virtually alone on the correct drop zone. Chappuis and this stick captured the coastal battery soon after assembling, and found that it had already been dismantled after an air raid.

The 502nd jumped into Normandy with 792 men. After six days of desperate fighting, only 129 were still standing and able to make the road march back to St. Come-du-Mount.

1st Lt. Wallace C. Strobel, centre, seen here talking to Eisenhower, wears a placard around his neck indicating he is the jumpmaster for chalk 23 of the 438 TCG (troop carrier group).
“The picture was taken at Greenham Common Airfield in England about 8:30 p.m. on June 5th 1944, my 22nd birthday. It was shortly before we were to leave the tented assembly area to which, for security reasons, we had been confined for about 5 days. We had darkened our faces and hands with burned cork, cocoa and cooking oil to be able to blend into the darkness and prevent reflection from the moon. We were all very well prepared emotionally for the operation ……….
…… within minutes of his visit we gathered our equipment and walked to our planes. I especially remember that as our plane took off at dusk and as I stood in the open doorway of the plane I could see a group of men watching and waving at the planes and I understood later that it was General Eisenhower and his staff. (Wallace C. Strobe 1922-1999).
