Now Playing Tracks

stoppity:

I want to bring something up to my followers right quick before I log off for the night.

These are some messages that showed up in a dear friend of mine’s inbox. They are in reference to a post about cisphobia specifically.

When you talk about cisphobia, and heterophobia, and claim it doesn’t exist and that majority members aren’t burdened with problems, I want you to remember this post.

These are messages sent specifically for her, to try and trigger her. Now, this particular friend of mine has survived more abuse and hardship than I care to recount, but needless to say, is one of the strongest people I know.

And over one single post, that wasn’t even on her blog to begin with, triggered this nonsense.

Take a good hard look at these. All of them degrade her for being cisgendered. Two of them claim she couldn’t possibly know anything about “struggling.” One is a rather graphic death threat. All over an immutable trait she cannot possibly have helped.

If the situation were reversed and her inbox were filled with “tranny scum fucktard” do you think I would even be having to post this? No. It would have blown up, nobody would have thought twice about it.

But you claim that this is “venting.” That being oppressed somehow grants you the right to be a special breed of hateful. That your struggle grants you the right to tell a self-harm recoverer that she ought to slit her throat, that her struggle is irrelevant.

This is what your movement has become. Take a good, hard look at your brand of “equality.” You should be ashamed of yourselves.

Teen’s invention could charge your phone in 20 seconds

(Photo: Intel)

Waiting hours for a cellphone to charge may become a thing of the past, thanks to an 18-year-old high-school student’s invention. She won a $50,000 prize Friday at an international science fair for creating an energy storage device that can be fully juiced in 20 to 30 seconds.

Read the complete story.

Everybody, remember this face.
Remember this name.
If this becomes a commonly used & highly lauded discovery, at some point a White guy is going to take credit, even if he has to word it like “Improved upon a previous…”
No no no
Fuck that guy.
Remember this brown girl.
Remeeeemmmmmberrrrr

What about her name? I keep seeing this all over my dashboard, but I’ve never seen it with her name in the actual post and not just in the link.

Eesha Khare. That’s who she is. Not just “Nameless-brown-girl-who-made-something.”

EESHA KHARE KICKING ASS!
