"If you are a white woman and you want to call yourself a feminist, you must acknowledge that your whiteness affords you a privilege that shields you from a lot. You must also acknowledge that you are afforded privileges that some men in this country do not have. Racism and sexism are tightly intertwined. You cannot fight one while ignoring the other."

Misato, who has been previously hired by her High School to rid their auditorium of pigeons, asserts that her falcon, Momotaro, will get the job done.

“The falcon is a divine punishment against crows. When their eyes meet the glare of the falcon, they will definitely not return” she says without a single doubt in her mind.

 Take an exclusive look at Dreamwork’s ‘HOME’ characters 
Please, join our community on Facebook and Twitter

A comedy sci-fi film with a woman of color as the lead!

OH LOOK AT HOW CUTE SHE IS.

OK, here is what you need to know:
This movie, which may or may not be any good, is based on a book which is fantastically good. It’s called THE TRUE MEANING OF SMEKDAY, by Adam Rex, and not only does it feature a cross-continental road trip in a flying car by a dynamic eleven-year-old heroine of colour named Gratuity (her friends call her Tip), a cat named Pig, and the most loveable alien you will ever meet, it’s got a diverse supporting cast, makes some smart and pointed commentary about ageism, sexism, racism, and the treatment of indigenous peoples, is magnificently funny and moreover has some great comics in it.
It also makes a GREAT readaloud. I could do J.Lo (the alien)’s voice all day. But enough of my blather, let Tip and J.Lo tell you themselves:
10 Reasons to Read The True Meaning of Smekday
All I know about the movie so far is that they have changed J.Lo’s name to Oh (presumably because Jennifer Lopez is no longer a current cultural reference), given him some weird curlycues on his head and taken the ponytails out of Gratuity’s hair. Having seen the prequel, I fear I am not optimistic about this movie doing any justice to the book… but if it gets some people to read the book, that will be a Good Thing.

The backlog of rape kits has put justice on hold for a lot of people. Back in 2009, more than 11,000 untested kits were found in a Detroit Police Department storage facility. Some were more than 25 years old.

Mariska Hargitay speaks on some of the issues surrounding the rape kit backlog in Detroit, Michigan. #endthebacklog (x)

It costs between $1,000 – $1,500 to test every single rape kit. There are over 10,000 kits left in Detroit’s rape kit backlog. Your donation can go directly to testing them. Donate to the Detroit Crime Commission’s backlog initiative by clicking here.

I am pretty explicitly anti-police in every respect. But I support Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy and her push to catalogue the egregious backlog of unprocessed rape kits in Detroit. 

Her work has already identified countless serial rapists in southeast Michigan, and will continue to identify these rapist pieces of shit as she moves forward.

Who cares if this process leads to conviction or not. Just give us the list. We can take care of the rest.

"After Detroit tested the first 10% of its backlogged kits, authorities were able to link cases to 46 serial rapists." (x)

Just think about it: 46 serial rapists. And the evidence against them was out there, all the time, in those backlogged kits. And that’s just 10% of them
