- Written by Kat -

Ever since you were a kid, you felt like you were supposed to be doing something more. Like there was more that needed to be said, but you never got the chance. As time went on, you pressed the feeling deep within yourself, becoming someone else entirely. In this day and age, women were expected to look and act a certain way. The feeling in your gut was always pulling you away from those ideas, prompting you to be more. But you never gave them a chance, too scared of what people would think. So you swallowed your heart, you wore the dresses and skirts and makeup. You went to the dances, and parties, you smiled and laughed and flirted. And when the captain of the football team asked you out, the only thing to do was say yes. Even though you played the part, the feeling never left, it sat in you gut - an idle threat.

in 2017, how can you teach a child or tell anyone who isn’t from the U.S. that America stands for freedom and equality when….

1. the Native Americans who originally owned this land (who now dwindle numbers due to mass murdering and pillaging) are still fighting TODAY to protect what’s left of it. Whilst also trying to prevent an oil pipeline system that would run from the north to the south in the center of the nation. This pipeline has the capacity to destroy ecosystems along that path which will never be able to be repaired. Forever contaminating the earth.

2. Black americans (a majority who’s ancestors were Africans forced into slavery & brought here through atlantic slave trade) continue to be terrorised and murdered. Oppressed, jailed, & disenfranchised so they never succeed at prevailing economically or knowing their self worth.

3. Anyone who does not identify as a white, Christian, heterosexual male, faces discrimination and opression.

issa lie. A flook. Freedom and equality is the idealistic goal we want to reach but it isn’t what this county stands for, otherwise we wouldn’t be fighting problems that are centuries old.

Nietzsche's Angel Food Cake

1. Allow the angel to reach room temperature. Then kill it.

2. Kill God. Set Him aside.

3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

4. Ecstatically whip, as if possessed by a storm-wind of freedom, 1-½ cups of excellent egg whites with ¼ tsp. salt and 1-½ tsp. cream of tartar. Continue until peaks are as if raised to their own heights and given wings in a fine air, a robust air.

5. Gradually add ¾ cup sugar, about 3 tbsp. at a time.

6. You are brilliant.

7. Now, add 1 tsp. vanilla and ¼ tsp. almond extract, and then sift together 1-¼ cups flour and ¾ cup sugar.

8. Blend in God and the angel. Emboldened, add the egg mixture.

9. Gaze into the überbatter. The überbatter will gaze into you.

10. While prancing about in a frenzy of self-satisfaction and anticipation, use a rubber scraper to push the überbatter into an ungreased 10" tube pan, for it is destined to be there.

11. Bake on a lower rack until done, usually 35-40 minutes, while reciting to the upper rack a long, convoluted anecdote about your childhood.

12. Invert the tube pan over a bottle for a few hours. Then impetuously rap the pan. Shout, “Aha!” and slide a knife along the pan’s insides.

13. Call what tumbles out a cake if you dare. Call it miraculous even.

14. Eat it. It is delicate, morbid, loveable, and you will die depressed, delirious, and overweight.

fuckyeahurlchange  asked:

Elizabeth Warren was just forced to stop talking on the Senate floor in protest of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General... Like... the GOP are now barring her from speaking for the remainder of the debate on Sessions nomination. The GOP claimed she was impugning him because she read what Coretta Scott King said of him in the 1980s. Can you publish this ask and help blow this up? It's very fucked up and very scary for dissent like this to be essentially removed.

…………oh my god……

I found a Twitter thread explaining how the GOP is going full on KKK I will post it tomorrow since it’s getting late but these are the same assholes who shout “freedom of speech!1!!1!” And then silence people who don’t agree with. Shameful.

Why do we still need feminism?

To everyone wondering why those loud, obnoxious feminists are still protesting today: American women have had mostly-equal rights for less than 40 years out of the entire recorded history of the Western world, thanks to loud, obnoxious feminists like the ones marching and protesting in cities across the US as I type this. There is currently a considerable and disturbing push by some conservative/religious groups to revert some of our hard-fought rights and freedoms to what they were back when we were considered property more than people.

To outline some of the injustices American women face, in case you’re wondering what’s wrong with our current set of rights and freedoms:

1 in 5 women will be sexually assaulted or raped during her lifetime. Of those, fewer than 1/3 are reported to police.

For every 1000 women who are raped by men, 994 of the men who rape them will never see the inside of a jail cell for that crime.

As of 2014, US police departments had 400,000 untested rape kits sitting around, gathering dust.

31 US states allow a rapist to sue for custody of a child conceived during that rape, and most of those states will not allow the mother to give the child up for adoption unless the rapist father is notified and gives consent. There are currently multiple bills in state senates which would also prevent a woman from aborting a child conceived by rape unless the father gives consent.

It is still an extremely common tactic for a rape trial to focus not on the rapist’s crime, but on the entire sexual history of the female victim, what she was wearing, who she was with, whether or not she had been drinking, and often trying to coerce her into admitting it was consensual all along and she’s just trying to save her reputation by calling it rape.

Rape is the only crime for which arguing that the temptation was too clear and obvious to resist is treated as an admissible and sometimes clearing defense.

1 in 3 women will experience domestic violence. 1 in 4 women will experience *severe* domestic violence.

As of 2014, 38 million US women had experienced domestic partner violence.

Also as of 2014, 4.77 million US women experience domestic partner violence every year.

Between 2001 and 2013, more than twice as many women were murdered by their male romantic partners than there were soldiers killed in our overseas war efforts.

Disabled women are 40% more likely to experience domestic violence than normally-abled women, and it’s more likely to be severe violence.

Marital rape has only been illegal in all 50 states since 1993. Many states still have exceptions to the law, limit the degree of assault it can be considered as, and/or do not prosecute it as seriously as other rape and assault.

Most domestic abuse is never prosecuted.

Abused women lose a collective 8 million days of paid work every year directly as a result of their abuse.

The leading cause of death among pregnant women is being murdered by the father of their child.

The US has the highest maternal mortality in the developed world.

The US is one of two countries in the entire world without paid maternity leave, the other being Papua New Guinea.

Right-to-work states routinely overlook the firing and laying-off of pregnant women because employers abuse the loophole of not explicitly stating that as the reason.

Pregnant women are routinely denied even minor accommodations by employers, such as carrying a water bottle or being allowed to use the restroom more than once every four hours.

Access to contraception is still a hotly-debated subject, and a woman’s employer can legally dictate her reproductive choices based on THEIR religious beliefs.

The most effective contraception methods are an entire month’s wages for a woman earning minimum wage and who has no access to insurance.

Hormonal contraception has significant and sometimes fatal side-effects that were only approved because the testing was done on impoverished minorities, and it was assumed this would be the primary market for hormonal contraception.

Access to abortion is being increasingly restricted in many states, which has seen a corresponding rise in maternal mortality, infant mortality, and suicide by pregnant women.

Women accessing health care reproductive health clinics such as Planned Parenthood frequently face angry and even violent protestors.

Fake “crisis pregnancy centers” are legal in many states. These are not bound by HIPAA laws and often put their duped patients in actual physical danger.

A Texas anti-abortion group with 30,000 members infiltrated pro-choice groups and hatched a scheme to literally kidnap pregnant women by offering them rides to Planned Parenthood and holding them captive until they’d missed their appointment and/or agreed not to abort. None of them got into any legal trouble for suggesting this.

It is legal in some states for the state to keep a brain-dead pregnant woman on life support indefinitely, regardless of her wishes, her family’s wishes, and the stage of pregnancy.

Women are more than twice as likely to die of a heart attack than men are, for the sole reason that their symptoms aren’t taken seriously.

Obese women, especially minorities, frequently go without adequate care or any care at all in all levels of medical care, from the general practitioner’s office to the emergency room.

35% of single mothers live at or below the poverty line, even though most of them have full-time jobs.

68% of the elderly poor are women.

60% of minimum-wage workers are women.

More than 70% of those living at or below the poverty line are women and children.

There is no affordable child care. A single mother working at a full-time minimum wage job is likely to spend half her income on day care. This forces her to either drop out of the workforce entirely and take government benefits, or to take a second job and essentially never see her own child.

The gender wage gap is real. At all levels of employment in all industries, women are frequently paid less than their male coworkers despite having the same experience, the same seniority, and the same education.

Sexism is rampant in many industries, particularly STEM and manual labor. This leads to less participation by women who feel they will receive unfair treatment from employers and coworkers alike.

The number of women earning degrees in computing-based STEM fields has dropped from 37% to 18% since the 1980s. This was largely due to the creation of hierarchies, hiring practices, and social networking in the 1990s that explicitly favoured men.

Female video game developers routinely receive gender-based harassment online, with an entire socio-political movement of angry young men (GamerGate) emerging because a female game developer was given what they perceived to be an unfairly-high rating on her game by a journalist with whom she subsequently entered into a relationship.

Female celebrities routinely deal with dangerous stalkers, with a number of them being assaulted and/or murdered by such, and our cultural reaction is to tell them that’s what they get for being famous. Meanwhile, John Lennon’s killer has been in prison since 1980 and is one of the most widely reviled men in America.

Women online in any capacity routinely receive gender-based harassment, demeaning comments, and unsolicited photos of male genitalia.

Women on dating sites frequently receive so much harassment that they are forced to delete their profiles.

The cultural reaction to nude/topless photos of any woman being stolen and posted online is that she got what she deserved for taking them in the first place. Revenge porn (selling nudes/sex tapes of your ex to shame them and ruin their lives/careers by sending links to their family and coworkers) is legal in most states, with females comprising almost 100% of victims. Very little legal recourse exists for victims.

Filming yourself having sex with a woman without her knowledge and selling the video to a porn site is not only legal, but is a popular category amongst viewers.

Womens’ Studies is the most frequent butt of every joke made about “useless” college degrees.

Career fields that are high-paying, high prestige, and male-dominated lose their prestige and wages as more women enter the field. This is an observable and frequently repeated trend, and it generally only takes 5-10 years from the time when the number of women in the field exceeds 15-20%.

2017 marks the first year EVER that women have exceeded 20% representation in the Senate, and 19% in the House. Only four are minorities, with three newcomers joining Mazie Hirono, who had been only the second minority woman to ever sit on the Senate until the Nov. 2016 election cycle.

The first and only female Native American federal judge was appointed in 2014. The first white female federal judge was appointed in 1933, the first black female federal judge was appointed in 1966, and the first Asian female federal judge was appointed in 2010. Despite these minor gains, 73% of state and federal judges are still male.


This seems like an exhaustive list, doesn’t it? Imagine how exhausting it is to be living it and having to explain it nearly 100 years after the Suffragettes were cruelly derided in editorials, comments, and assaulted on the streets over wanting something to be done about many of these very same issues.

Cost of Freedom (1/??)

Summary: After a heist gone wrong, Kaitou KID has finally been caught. Now imprisoned, Kaito’s trying to survive until he can figure out a way to escape. His cellmate, ex-detective Kudo Shinichi, might be able to help. As the day of their planned escape nears, only one question remains in Kaito’s mind - Is Kudo really the criminal they claim that he is? Prison!AU.

@detectivegeekshin and I started talking about this AU yesterday. Now it exists.

Icy wind slashes at Kaito’s face, rain dancing on his head, but he doesn’t notice. Goosebumps spread down his arms, but he’s far more interested in the whimper of the man beside him - one of his new, fellow prisoners.

“Oh God,” the other man sobs. It belongs to another prisoner, with the number 035823 on the prison overalls he’s been supplied with, “I don’t belong here. I don’t, I really don’t.”

Water drips from Kaito’s nose as he glances across to the blonde haired man. He’s got short stubby legs, and a pudgy structure and Kaito decides that he’s not going to last long, not before the man breaks down completely.

Kaito shivers against the cold, “Dude. Shut up.”

On 11th April 2008, the raped and strangled body of Italian artist Pippa Bacca was discovered near some bushes in a Turkish town just under 300km south of Instanbul. She was left naked and found to be decomposing.

In March 2008, two female Italian artists referring to themselves as “Brides on Tour” began a hitchhiking expedition from Italy to Israel dressed only in wedding dresses for the majority of the journey. The aim of their efforts was to promote world peace and harmony, simultaneously seeking to show that women could be exposed to others from all walks of life and remain safe. Bacca and her companion passed unscathed through Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Bulgaria before arriving in Turkey. Once there, they decided to part ways and planned to reunite once again in Beirut. However, Pippa soon after disappeared without a trace until she was discovered in early April. 

A man named Murat Karatas was traced by police after he had used his SIM card in Pippa’s phone- he subsequently confessed to perpetrating her murder and led authorities to his victim’s remains. He had offered Bacca a ride in his car to help her reach the next destination in her travels, which she gratefully accepted. Despite Karatas claiming he had single-handedly carried out the killing, DNA profiling confirmed that the rape had been committed by multiple other men. In response to this, Karatas claimed he had been heavily under the influence of alcohol and therefore could not remember. Despite this finding, no other individuals could be pursued and arrested. Murat received a a life sentence for his involvement in the murder, as well as 7 years and 6 months for rape, 5 years for restricting a person’s freedom and 1 year and 8 months for theft.

In the wake of the media coverage surrounding Pippa Bacca’s death, with newspapers in Turkey publishing front-page headlines which read “We are ashamed”, Turkish president Abdullah Gul directly contacted the Italian president Giorgio Napolitano to express his condolences. It is very sad and perhaps ironic that somebody publicly seeking to promote international unity by proving that solo travel is safe for women was deceived and betrayed by a citizen she was working to represent.

anonymous asked:

Do you know of any fics where clace don't succeed in Edom and Sebastian ends up w Clary?

I’ll make a list below! Also, some of these fics contain rape/noncon so please read the warnings on them.

Unsuccessful Plan, Clabastian in Edom

Sebastian won and plans to rule with his queen in Edom. Can Jace and friends save Clary or will she end up choosing Sebastian/Jonathan for eternity? Clabastian & Clace.

What happens if the heroes didn’t always win? This is an AU where Sebastian Morgenstern has defeated the Shadowhunters in the halls of Edom and ends up taking Clary with him. Will she gain her freedom or find something more?…

What would have happened if the Heavenly Fire didn’t work on Sebastian? “Hello, my name is Valentina Morgenstern, daughter of Sebastian Morgenstern and Clarissa Morgenstern. I am the Princess of Edom.” WARNING: M AND CONTAINS COHF SPOILERS.

Heosphoros failed. Clary failed. They’re trapped in Edom, to be the playthings of Sebastian Morgenstern in the deadly game of dominate or be dominated. Clary and Jace will never be the same.

When Jonathon catches Clary trying to stab him in Edom he puts into action “Plan B” turning Clary back into a little girl and raising her, read as her family watches Clary grow up under the guidance of her Demon brother, raised to be the perfect Queen and bride.

What would it be like for Clary to rule on the throne of Edom with Sebastian at her side? The brother that says he loves her, but will hurt her. Jace is locked away with the rest of everyone she loves, and Clary cannot protect herself. Sebastian is the leader of the Endarkened, who follow his every command. How will she escape? Based off of City of Heavenly Fire. Spoilers of COHF!

COHF TWIST- “Little Sister, you will rule with me. You will be my Queen, I will be your King. We will rule Edom, even if it means I vow to not kill your pesky little friends.” What if Clary and Jaces plan didn’t work? Sebastian got what he wanted, his Queen and his Kingdom. Clary is under Sebastian’s control, most of the time. Will she win the fight for freedom? Bittersweet Clace.

Clary was in a coma for 4 years. Sebastian has won the war. Everyone she loves is now silent and works for Sebastian in Edom. This wasn’t suppose to happen. Clary has no idea what to expect, Sebastian has placed a rune on Clary that will inflict pain on Clary if she dares to disobey him in any way.

Sebastian finally makes Clary his Queen in Edom in front of his army of Endarkened
